A Canterlot Wedding: Part 2 - This Day Aria 

Hall om mig(closed)


The day had finally begun, the invitation was send to those welcome to the wedding, exciting to wait and see the reaction of a certain small girl which she had enjoyed spending time with a long time ago, tomorrow Kougyoku would speak to her beloved fiance, who she would marry in less then a couple of days. The princess closed her eyes, but not knowing that somethings would change after she did. 

                                                                           This day is going to be perfect

Arba, who had secretly followed the princess her journey, and sneaked into the castle, withou alarming any of the well trained guards, sneaked into tKougyoku her room, looking at her sleeping face, an evil grin plastered on her lips “ Thank you my dear~ For once you have been useful, but it is sadly time for you to say goodbye to your beloved prince~” She paused, not being able to softly giggle to herself “ As I will be taking him from you, how delighted to see my plan going well so far~!” With that, the witch changed herself into Kougyoku with a certain spell, tonight was the night she would switch herself with Kougyoku, and letting her rot somewhere below the castle grounds, a cave everyone seemed to have forgotten about, and took place in her bed, after all tomorrow was going to be a big day~ At least no one would suspec her of being a fake, and therefor would try and look for the real princess, all was gong according to plan

The morning un rose and so had Arba, preparing herself to once more look perfectly like Kougyoku, moving her body from left to right, she thought she had done a good job, looking like the little weakling of a princess “ Time to meet my groom then~….. Ugh that words still taste bad in my mouth…  ”  She said to herself, seeing him in his training attire, speaking to some young….. Pessant looking girl, ugh the day could not become worse then it already had, but she needed to be patient, approaching them, clearing her throat to get their attention “ Am I interrupting something??” Arba asked, tilting her head slightly to the side as she stood in a doorway towards the garden

This Day Aria (Cadence's Aria)
This Day Aria (Cadence's Aria)

[Queen Chrysalis]

This day is going to be perfect

The kind of day of which I dreamed since I was small

Everypony will gather round

Say I look lovely in my gown

What they don’t know is that I have fooled them all.

[Princess Cadance]

This day was going to be perfect

The kind of day of which I dreamed since I was small

But instead of having cake

With all my friends to celebrate

My wedding bells they may not ring for me at all.

[Queen Chrysalis]

I could care less about the dress

I won’t partake in any cake

Vows, well I’ll be lying when I say

That through any kind of weather

I’ll want us to be together

The truth is I don’t care for him at all

No I do not love the groom

In my heart there is no room

But I still want him to be all mine!

[Princess Cadance]

We must escape before it’s too late

Find a way to save the day

Hope, I’ll be lying if I say

I don’t fear that I may lose him

To one who wants to use him

Not care for, love and cherish him each day

For I oh-so love the groom

All my thoughts he does consume

Oh Shining Armor, I’ll be there very soon.

[Queen Chrysalis]

Finally the moment has arrived

For me to be one lucky bride.

[Princess Cadance]

Oh, the wedding we won’t make

He’ll end up marrying a fake

Shining Armor will be

[Queen Chrysalis]

Mine, all mine. [laughter]

My Top Ten Favorite Musical Numbers From Cartoons

My buddy, @theromancescrooge, did her top ten favorite original musical numbers from cartoons a while back, and I was hesitant to make my own list. There are just so many good choices I couldn’t narrow it down to just ten. However, as time went on more picks just solidified their position should I make a list. Rules are it has to be from an animated television show, but no anime. Also, one per show. Covers are okay, but no direct lifting of previously existing music. So here it is:

10. “I Got a New Routine” from Milo Murphy’s Law

I love Weird Al. I never got into Phineas and Ferb because reasons. So you give a platform like that to Weird Al and let the gems come naturally. 

9. “Sweet Shop” from Littlest Pet Shop

This cute little diddy is very reminiscent of songs from the 1950s. I like this kinda sound and it plays like a very pleasant commercial. The show is done by the same crew as MLP:FiM, so you can see the talent in animation and casting.

8. “My Shiny Teeth and Me” from The Fairly Oddparents

I like this song. It sounds nice. Hey, shut up. Everyone shut up. Stop laughing at me. Just go to the next one. The next one. But seriously the keyboard is a nice touch and Chris Kirkpatrick’s vocals are smooth.

7. “The Campfire Song Song” from Spongebob Squarepants

Damn, is this song a bunch of fun. Patrick trying his best, but failing makes me laugh everytime. Some would argue that it’s too short but shut up.

6. “The Wizard” from The Looney Tunes Show

I really wanted to put “We are in Love” but after listening to both songs back-to-back, I just like this one better. Much better. A fantasy metal track as Daffy pretends to be an all powerful wizard and the lyrics blur the lines between what he thinks he’s doing and what is actually happening.

5. “Music Revolution” From loliRock

I know I said in my thoughts on loliRock that the songs sound a little too overproduced and I still think that. That being said, I think this song is pretty cool. It’s energetic and has that right amount of vocal harmony that I love in my music and, dare I say it, a little sexy.

4. “This Day Aria” from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

This song is an epic piece. This is some Disney quality stuff. The back and forth between Cadence and the imposter is great. The harmony is amazing.

3. “Hello Nurse!” from Animaniacs

Animaniacs has A LOT of great songs, but this one I have to stop and sing every time. This is the song a guy sings when he’s asked to describe the perfect woman. 

2. “The Ballad of Star Butterfly” from Star vs the Forces of Evil

I love Fall Out Boy. Having Patrick Stump sing Star’s Princess Song was brilliant. It’s a four part rock opera going from a traditional princess song and ending with a big reveal of love. Starco is OTP, baby. Even if Starco isn’t your thing, this is great song.

1. “Here Comes a Thought” from Steven Universe

This song will always be my number one. The first time I heard this song, I cried. I cried because I knew I needed to hear this a long time ago. If I would have heard this beautifully written and performed song when I was a kid, it would have saved me from years of self-loathing.

That’s all I got and thanks for reading.


It was 3 in the morning when I had a thought: This Day Aria, with Julian, Ghoulian, and whoever the hell you ship him with. THINK ABOUT IT, IT’S PERFECT. Julian was trapped, everyone thought Ghoulian was him, and Ghoulian turned out to be a kick ass villain. Unlike Chrysalis, though, Ghoulian actively tried to stop his enemies.

Side note, I really love this pic of Ghoulian because it’s like one of the only genuinely pleasant faces he makes…granted he was acting and exploded a second later but it’s still a cute image. XD

che la tua pizza preferita era al prosciutto e funghi senza funghi
“perché non la prendi al prosciutto e basta?” ti chiedevo ogni volta
“perché non ti fai gli affari tuoi?” mi rispondevi
e sorridevi

che ci conoscemmo a primavera
amavi sparare ai piccioni con quel tuo buffo fucile ad aria compressa
“dai prova!” mi dicevi
“no, mi fa impressione”

m’innamorai di te
anche perché
eri in grado d’inserire piccole frasi subliminali
in mezzo ad un discorso qualsiasi
“quest’estate mi piacerebbe fare un corso di tiro con l’arco, una mia amica lo ha iniziato sei bello e dice che si diverte molto”
“ieri ho portato la macchina dall’elettrauto mi fai un sesso della madonna, mi ha preso centocinquanta euro per due fili staccati”

o forse fu
il tuo amore incondizionato per il pongo
potevamo giocarci per ore
in silenzio
sul parquet di casa tua

“vorrei vivere con te in una casa di pongo” mi dicevi
“e fare bambini di pongo?” ti chiedevo
“sì” rispondevi “e cucinarti squisite pietanze di pongo”

non alzavi mai la voce
sapevi odiare benissimo con gli occhi
pelle bianchissima
ci conoscemmo a primavera, lentiggini

“finché mi ami non scriverai mai di me” dicevi
“e invece sì” dicevo
“vedrai” dicevi
e sorridevi

e avevi sempre ragione
sapevi tutto

—  G. Catalano
