It was during fall, high school had just started and I was in my junior year. You had just moved from Trotokyo, I remember seeing you on the first day wearing a Kimono. You got everyone’s attention with your gorgeous looks and I thought that I’d never have a shot, that you were well beyond my leagues. I admired you from afar as you gained popularity with all the boys, though I now know that it was something you never wanted. One day I dropped my lucky D20, which I’ve owned for as long as I can remember. It rolled down the steps and I chased after it, since magic was prohibited in campus, and that is when I saw you being bullied by a group of the popular ponies. They were picking on you because they thought you were trying to be more popular than them, which was far from the truth. All you wanted was to make some friends but it seemed as though they didn’t care to listen.
Can you believe that I was actually going to walk away at first? I felt like a level one paladin fighting Tiamat and I was very ashamed of that. But when I heard the damsel’s cry, I ran in front of the threat without a second thought yelling, “Leeeeeeeeeeeeeroy Jenkins,” just like any heroic warrior should do. Though I got my flank kicked, what mattered to me the most was that you were safe. From that day we were inseparable and became the best of friends. About three years later I nervously asked you to be my special somepony, which at the time seemed more terrifying than trying to take on the Tomb of Horrors, you smiled and said yes.
I never had much to give to you but about four years after becoming your special somepony I decided to give to you my most prized possession. Everything was secretly set up well before the convention. I asked our friend Phathusa Moonbrush to help me pick out an engagement Choker, she had suggested a ring instead but I feared that you might lose it during a flight and it made more sense with the type of relationship we shared. It wasn’t an easy choice to pick a day to ask you, but the last day seemed the easiest because it would be the least expected and you would be cosplaying as my favorite manga gal Fujiko. Moonbrush had asked one of her friends to stage a photo shoot for the both of us while we visited her, needless to say I was more nervous as a rogue rolling to see if he could steal the crown off the king’s head.
As we began taking up different poses I quickly made a switch to one of my props. I got on my knees and pulled out a jewelry box, this was something we’ve been using all day for a classic ‘Lupin’ style scene that had a fake ring. As I opened the box I saw your eyes light up in awe, you gasped, dropped your prop and froze. “My dear Sureibu,” I said slowly, “will you join my party and take the ‘Wife’ class?” You paused for a moment, which seemed as though a slow spell was cast on us, you dried up your tears and said “Yes.” You took the choker and laughed as you noticed what was dangling from it, the same D20 that led me to the greatest adventure I’ll ever have.

Claudia Lennear is an American soul singer. She has worked with many acts including Ike and Tina Turner, Humble Pie, Joe Cocker, and Stephen Stills. Lennear’s meetings with Mick Jagger and David Bowie are often cited as inspiration for The Rolling Stones’ ’Brown Sugar’ and Bowie’s ’Lady Grinning Soul’. NME editors Roy Carr and Charles Shaar Murray noted in 1981 that she was “yet to reply in song to either Mick or David”. However, in a 1973 article in Rolling Stone, she was quoted as saying that she wrote the song ’Not At All‘ "to inform Mick Jagger of his dispensability". Claudia sang back-up vocals on Joe Cocker’s 1970 Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour and live album, on Leon Russell and the Shelter People, and on George Harrison’s The Concert for Bangladesh. She appeared in the August 1974 issue of Playboy magazine in a pictorial entitled 'Brown Sugar’.
“I was 17, maybe 18, and I thought we were just going out to the disco in LA. Then we arrived at the airport and I was immediately suspicious when I got to the plane and there were no other passengers apart from Mick, Keith Richards and the record producer Glyn Johns. But I wasn’t nervous. The Stones had a bad-boy image but they were perfect gentlemen.”
“Around the time Brown Sugar became a hit for The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger and I were always seen together in restaurants and nightclubs in Los Angeles. That’s why people thought the song was about me, and Mick later confirmed that it was.”
“It was an on-off thing because of our different schedules, but we would talk all the time on the phone. He was a lot of fun to be with, although his public persona is quite different to the way he is in private. I found him a quiet guy who was very British, with good manners, so I was always smitten by his behaviour.” -about her relationship with Mick Jagger
“I was also the muse for David Bowie’s song Lady Grinning Soul. I’d seen David’s show in Detroit, he asked me for some input and we struck up a friendship after that. I had to pinch myself a few times. This was the top one per cent of rock'n'roll that I just happened to make friends with. I was on quite a roll, wasn’t I?”
