”Come one, come all and watch as The GREAT and POWERFUL TRIXIE perform feats of magic beyond comprehension!”
About three fireworks went off behind Trixie as she posed in front of the small cart that she had managed to purchase with the money she had scrounged up. Glancing around at the street, she found that no one was really paying that much attention to her, with the ponies of Canterlot going on with their business as if she wasn’t even there. Going back onto all four hooves, Trixie breathed a sigh of annoyance. Maybe it was not the best idea to have brought her act to Canterlot; with the large population of unicorns, a magic act was not necessarily anything that would interest them. Add in some of the…glances that people were giving her, there was also the chance these upper class snobs simply thought that they were better than her. Still, it was a city full of ponies with money, and she was in real need of money
”Well, if that’s not going to get their attention, maybe something bigger will…”
Taking off the replacement hat that she had purchased, Trixie began to think. What could she do that would get a person to look at her? After the events in Ponyville, trying to claim she defeated an Ursa Major was out of the question, although she could try and claim she battled and Ursa Minor and still be true. But if they didn’t want fireworks, they probably wouldn’t care about some simple illusions. Now what could so…ah ha! There was something she could do that no other unicorn could do (Trixie refused to consider a certain other pony could, and no one counted the princesses in these statistics); manipulate the weather!
”Now then, prepare to be amazed as the GREAT and POWERFUL TRIXIE perform a feat beyond that of any normal unicorn; the manipulation of weather!”
A light purple aura soon enveloped her horn as the magic flowed. Within seconds, a small swirl of cloud began to appear in the air. It started off a white color, but as the cloud began to gain shape and form it darkened until it was black like a thundercloud...because that was exactly what it was!
”Behold as Trixie unleashes the power of lightning!” she shouted. A brief second later a thunderbolt shot out of the cloud. The sound of thunder and the sudden flash seemed to finally get the attention of the various crowds of ponies…and they did not seem rather happy.
”Hey, what’s the big idea?”
”Oh my, what an unpleasant annoyance.”
”Someone should do something about these street performers mucking about…”
Even when faced with the previously inconceivable idea of a unicorn accessing pegasi magic, the ponies of Canterlot failed to recognize her talent. Finally frustrated, Trixie threw a bit of a tantrum.
”FINE, if that is how you ungrateful fillies wish to treat Trixie, then Trixie is going to take Trixie’s act somewhere more worthy of witnessing Trixie’s stupendous and spectacular magic. Hmph.”
Ignoring the complaints and looks of the crowd, Trixie harnessed herself to her cart and began pulling. She really had no idea where it was she was going to go, but for now she just wanted to get out of there...
