Unimportant. Weak. Failure…
As Trixie ran along the dirt road, these thoughts repeated themselves in her head. She was a laughingstock now, that she could be sure of. Even now she could imagine the laughter of the citizens of Ponyville. Or worse, the cheering as they celebrated their new ‘hero’, that purple-colored mare called Twilight Sparkle. She was able to stop the Ursa Minor, displaying more magical power than even she, the Great and Powerful Trixie, had ever seen simply to put the beast to sleep.
But as to her own performance? A fly probably would have done more to stop it. The beast had broken through her bonds, and it didn’t even flinch as she attempted to strike it down with lightning. All of her magic, all of her talent, a complete waste of time. Maybe Twilight Sparkle had thought it a cruel joke, to let her just flounder there while she, a mare with the power to actually do something, just sat back and did nothing. Trixie didn’t even want to think about the two idiotic foals that lured the Ursa Minor to town in the first place. All she wanted to do was run, to get as far away from that place as she could.
But oh she would be back someday. No town could banish the Great and Powerful Trixie for long. She would get stronger, more powerful, and even more great! Yes, that is what she would do. She would find somewhere to study and practice more, to find some way to get the power to upstage Twilight Sparkle or anypony that dared to challenge Trixie.
…But where? She had already rejected attending Princess Celestia’s School for Gifted Unicorns; sitting in a classroom was not an appealing thought to her. She could just buy some spell books, but all of her bits were back in her wagon. Even if there was a chance of her finding them in the pile of broken, splintered wood that was her home, she was trying to run away from Ponyville and not back to it.
So what did that leave her as? A broke, homeless pony with no plans and no idea where she was going. That…that didn’t matter to Trixie at all. She was going to find something to make her really live up to the name of the Great and Powerful Trixie! No one would forget her; no one would confuse her for some pony in the background; no pony would simply ignore her…
