Description
Since the deadline for the remix war is next Saturday, I'm extending the deadline for this compo. And what's a better theme for a 2 week deadline than a mini musical friend-off?

This week's theme: Find a peice of fanart or a fanfic and write a song for it.

Be sure to add a link to your selected fanart or fanfic somewhere in your description. (If it's an image or video, I'll embed-ify it for you.)

-----

You have TWO WEEK to create a song (original, remix, or whatever) in response to the theme.

The Night That Never Ended (Do Not Go To Sleep!) Dr_Dissonance 8/5/2011 4:36:54am No.4 - Score: 11
Write a piece for either a fanfic or fanart...I chose "The Night That Never Ended" found here: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/05/story-night-that-never-ended.html
I love the psychological implications associated with the pure darkness in the story, so wrote this as an accompaniment for wandering the darkness...
But there's something missing! I feel like I'm forgetting something important with it...but oh well, can't be bothered finishing it...
Also, before you listen, IT'S AVANT GARDE! RUN!!! I can guarantee few people will like it...:P
Best listened to through headphones!

Roseluck (Angry Plot Mix) Jackle App !2Uqe0sHWIk 8/6/2011 3:07:40pm No.12 - Score: 10
Here! Have some "dubstep" about Roseluck's exceedingly upset backside.
This marks the first toastbeard Joke submission I've ever done.
This is what hydrocodone does to music.

Lyrics:

People say that BG ponies suck
well fuck that I'm Goddamned Roseluck
Just because I'm not in the mane six
doesn't mean that I ain't got no tricks
You want a pony with flair and class
and an out of this-world ass?
Well you found one, aren't you glad?
Now come here and hug me before I get mad.

Scratch vs. Octavia General Mumble 8/6/2011 3:48:38pm No.13 - Score: 10
This was a metric ton of fun to make.

Would have liked to experiment more with the battle in the middle though.

Here's the picture it's based on...

SLENDERMANE FoozogzPepperBrony 8/6/2011 7:15:26pm No.16 - Score: 10
>Find a peice of fanart or a fanfic
>Fanfic
>Horror Lover

Story summary:
Twilight gets stained with a poisonous berry that allows SlenderMane to find and share with her his torture. Zecora tries her best to slow the poison, and gives her a stone to ward off spirits. Fluttershy is terrified of the stone as she senses evil in it. Twilight progressively goes insane. In her insanity, she nearly kills fluttershy, and finds her buried near her house later(with no knowledge of what happened to her). She pleads the almost-dead Fluttershy to send a help note to Celestia, and tries to get back to Zecora. However, she gets lost and is found by SlenderMane again only to torture her with his presence. She screamed for hours, even after she couldn't scream. They are both taken to the hospital.
At the end, Twilight is saying "Why are little fillies afraid of the dark? It's because I can find them in the dark."
Then she places a hoof on Fluttershy. They were both pronounced dead the next day.

Fluttershy Washington Circuitfry 8/6/2011 6:55:16pm No.15 - Score: 8
I thought I'd make my own fanart and then bust a rhyme to it.

Brad Neely forevah.

LYRICS:

Awwwwww!

Fluttershy, Fluttershy
3 feet tall, flanked with butterflies.
To animals there, who hide somewhere,
She's coming, She's coming, She's coming.

Twi:
Let me tell you how she once lifted fifty cows
Shooting lasers from her eyes with the stare of demise

Rar:
She once cheered so loud pegasi balls dropped with a sound
And they grew the hay up and apologized.

Twi:
She's your pony teacher about having perfect features
and fighting T-Rexes off with nothing but a saber.

Rar:
She once went to space to save the buckin' planet
Deflected meteors and killed a pomegranate.

Fluttershy, Fluttershy
one year older than Pinkie Pie.
Celestia mare, better buckin' beware
She's coming, She's coming, She's coming.

Twi:
Here comes Flutta, in top class, thought
All the ladies in the club made way for her ascot.

Rar:
Don't you ever knock it down or she'll snap your neck
And shove a parasprite where it'll never come back

Fluttershy, Fluttershy
Told a dragon to kiss his home goodbye,
Invented incense, because Flutta makes sense.
She's coming, She's coming, She's coming.

Fluttershy, Fluttershy
Lead a revolution and never say die.
Celestia's heir? Never had a prayer.
She's coming, She's coming, She's coming.


The Thickest Wall sci 8/6/2011 9:59:51pm No.26 - Score: 7

Saturday Morning (Friday Night) Tarby !GTaRByqUR2 8/2/2011 3:09:01am No.2 - Score: 4
Alrighty, so I'm submitting this right now for several reasons: 1. because I tend to always post after Artemus, and I didn't feel like breaking the trend now. b) because I honestly don't know if i'll be ABLE to finish it, since my shitty-ass rockband microphone decided to kick the bucket today, and third, because if I DO end up recording vocals, I can just update the soundcloud file xD I upgraded today to a soundcloud lite so i could post more music and it turns out i can also replace the files xD

Anyway, lyrics written for the second verse and on. There's about a 50% chance that you'll be hearing it with vocals on saturday (I'll be in Attleboro, MA, either onstage or getting drunk off my ass at the cast party), and a 45% chance that it won't have a "first verse" to speak of anyway.

LYRICS!

The lights flash, and the music blares
I see a lady, I stop and stare
She’s the most beautiful thing I’ve seen
Yeah, I know it’s cliché, but still you get what I mean
It seemed the world stopped when she gazed right back
She gave me a wink then began her attack
I found myself helpless for this midnight mistress
She might be a demon, but she sure isn’t tasteless

An irresistible escape
You call it lust, I call it fate
The night’s still young, though it’s so late
Just guide me, and lead me through my changing reality!

The colors spoke, the music cried
The winds had whispered, our senses lied
And still, the beauty of it all clearly remains…
The party grew, it never died
The patrons lingered, side by side
When Saturday morning came
We knew we’d never be the same!

(x2, with backing vocals doing another chorus segment)
Oh, Friday night! Friday night!
The best night of my life!
The best night of my life!

It takes everything I got just to stand
Nothing is consistent, I’m in lunacy land
I’ve succumb to the darkness, and she’s taken my hand
And led me to her bedroom for a one night stand
I’m not sure what’s affecting me more
The things in my system or the trippy décor
It feels like I’m floating as I enter her door
She grins like the devil, clearly eager for more

I’m not sure whether this is real
My mind can’t tell me what to feel
Each of my senses start to reel
Just guide me, and lead me through my changing reality!

The colors spoke, the music cried
The winds had whispered, our senses lied
And still, the beauty of it all clearly remains…
The party grew, it never died
The patrons lingered, side by side
When Saturday morning came
We knew we’d never be the same!

(x2)
Oh, Friday night! Friday night!
The best night of my life!
The best night of my life!

(spoken)
So i step through door, which she closes as she passes
and she walks up to me with a gaze to stun the masses
She leans in for a kiss, which creates an instant bliss
But the party's far from over, cause she went to flip me over,
Then we

(sung)
The colors spoke, the music cried
The winds had whispered, our senses lied
And still, the beauty of it all clearly remains…
The party grew, it never died
The patrons lingered, side by side
When Saturday morning came
We knew we’d never be the same!

(x2)
Oh, Friday night! Friday night!
The best night of my life!
The best night of my life!

The song was heavily inspired by the "Acid Trips" fan fiction series by Syncronis (i found it in one of the SFG threads in /fic/ on ponychan), specifically this one:

Sparks and Sprinters DerpyGrooves 8/6/2011 7:40:19pm No.17 - Score: 3
Sung by Fluttershy in Chapter 11 of "It's a Dangerous Business, Going Out Your Door" to a deathly ailing Twilight Sparkle.

http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/04/its-dangerous-business-going-out-your.html

When sunset's embers fade away
And darkness shrouds the land,
Your mind may fill with nameless fears
You do not understand.
Though I would fain protect your sleep
I cannot breach your head,
But twinkling friends beyond my strength
Shall aid you in my stead.

I cannot take your fears from you,
I cannot watch your dreams,
But all the stars that shine above
Shall guard you with their gleam.

What are the stars? Perhaps you ask.
The answer is a tale
Told many ways by many folk
Through forest, glen and dale.
The ponies say the stars are Luna's
Tears from long ago.
The deerfolk say they are the souls
Of those we used to know.
The camels say the stars are suns
That burn in empty space.
The bison say they are the light
Shone from the Great One's face.

Whatever species speaks the truth
On this they all agree:
The stars stand watch into the night
And light the galaxy.
So in your hour of fearfulness
When you feel most alone,
Know that the stars are wi-ith you
And they shall guide you home.

And I am with you too,
They love you, I love you.
So do not be afraid,
Sleep now, dream now...

Pinkie's serving you... zorg 8/5/2011 11:29:13am No.6 - Score: 2
...some nice chloroform-laced cupcakes, too bad you read that dreadful story... You try to run away, but she's catching up to you!
Suddenly you find out that a very spacious mansion is under sugarcube corner; getting out of it will pose a challenge... not to mention the pink psychopath who will surely catch you.

Sleep+Smile DerpyGrooves 8/6/2011 10:13:11pm No.30 - Score: 2
Wake up, darling…
See the sun
Dropping below the horizon
Yawn, stretch and rub your eyes

…and smile
I want to see you smile
I want to see you smile for me
I want to see you smile all night long for me

This empty castle... Has nothing for me
And it hurts that the stars are so far away
Sometimes it gets hard to remember
Just how one would go about smiling

But I smile
And I want to see you smile
I want to see you smile for me
I want to see you smile all night long for me


Good morning sister.
It’s time for me bed down again.
Remember I love you dearly
Even though we don’t see much of each other


I’ve counted out the hours on my abacus
It’s early early morning and we need our sleep
Do you find me beautiful?
Do you think they all enjoyed my night?

Slender Mane Vafrous Coyote 8/6/2011 9:02:02pm No.21 - Score: 1
This is what happens when I'm under a time crunch, am using software that I've never used before, and writing for a genre that I've never written for before. Go me!

Piano is Chopin's Nocturne No. 1, Op. 9

Rainbow/Metal/Rock/Wut? Dr_Dissonance 8/5/2011 4:46:42am No.5 - Score: 0

This is the picture that solidified Rainbow Dash as my favourite Pony!
But orchestral would be no good, so I tried my hand at something more modern...
That and I've never used Guitar Rig 4 or Battery 3 properly...both are tremendously good fun to use! Expect Techno Choral in the future! :P
So yeah, Mastering is probably all wrong, but whatevs!
