Hey everybody! Well this is my first My Little Pony fic so please everyone be gentle. I recently started getting into the series so I'm still fairly new to it, but I got inspired to write a story for it anyway. I really shouldn't be working on this at all seeing as how I got four other stories I'm in the middle of but I know that if I didn't start working on this soon then I would go nuts!

So I compromised with myself and will work on this story every OTHER week. I'm sorry but that's the best I can do at the moment, but don't worry, the weeks will go by fast. :)

Well anywho, Disclaimer time!

I do not own My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic nor any of it's characters. That credit belongs to Lauren Faust.

I do however own my oc pony Melody and her parrot Monty.

I hope you all enjoy!

"Well here we are Monty. Our new home." Melody said to her pet parrot that was perched on her head as the two stood on the outskirts of Ponyville.

The greenish/blue colored unicorn smiled as she scanned the village from afar with her chocolate brown eyes. Everywhere you looked, ponies and unicorns roamed the streets and a few Pegasus would fly up in the air.

Melody smiled as she watched them. These ponies would be her neighbors and (with any luck) hopefully a few of them would want to be her friend.

"Squawk!"

Melody snapped back to reality and giggled at her parrot's impatience. "Alright alright, I'm moving." she reassured as she began to enter the town pulling a small wagon with her belongings behind her. Monty chirped happily and began to fly beside her.

Melody smiled at the ponies that she passed and they either smiled back or said their own hellos as she made her way to their new home.

"Well here we are. Home sweet home." the little unicorn said, whipping a strand of her blue and black mane out of her eyes as she and Monty stood looking at the building of the new music store, "Hoof Beats" that she was the new proud owner of.

Melody, -using her magic- got the key out from under the mat and unlocked the door. She then opened the door and stepped inside flicking on the light and smiled at the empty and extremely dusty store.

"Well, I guess we better get started."

. . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The rest of the day was spent cleaning, unpacking boxes, and setting up the music store. Even Monty was helping by flying from shelf to shelf, dusting them with his tail feathers.

"You know what we need Monty?" Melody asked as she suddenly paused mid sweep.

"Squawk?" the red parrot asked cocking his head to the side as if asking "What?"

"I say we need some music to get things moving along a lil faster." the greenish/blue unicorn smirked. Monty squawked and flapped his wings quickly while Melody sat the broom aside and then used her magic to pull out a boombox. She sat it on a box and smiled as she pressed play. Guitar music began to flow through the speakers and Melody picked up her broom and half swept, half danced as she began to sing along to the song.

Standing on the border

Looking out into the great unknown

I can feel my heart beating faster

As I step out on my own

There's a new horizon

And the promise of a favorable wind

I'm heading out tonight

Traveling light

I'm gonna start all over again

And buy a one way ticket

One a west bound train

See how far I can go

(because I can)

I'm gonna go out dancing

In the pouring rain

Talk to somepony I don't know

(Because I can)

I will face the world around me

Knowing that I'm strong enough

To let you go

And I will fall in love again

Because I can

"This songs true Monty. This is a new start for us!" Melody said optimistically once the song broke for a guitar solo. The little unicorn then began to sing once more once the singer started again.

Gonna climb that mountain

And look the eagle in the eye

I won't let fear

Clip my wings

And tell me how high I can fly

How could I have ever believed

That love had to be so blind?

When freedom was waiting

Down at the station

All I had to do was make up my mind

And buy a one way ticket

One a west bound train

See how far I can go

(Because I can)

I'm gonna go out dancing

In the pouring rain

Talk to somepony I don't know

(Because I can)

I will face the world around me

Knowing that I'm strong enough

To let you go

And I will fall in love again

Because I can

I have walked through the fire

And crawled on my knees

Through the valley of

The shadow of doubt

Then the truth came shining

Like a light on me

And now I can see my way out

I'm gonna buy a one way ticket

On a west bound train

Se how far I can go

(Because I can)

I'm gonna go out dancing

In the pouring rain

Talk to somepony I don't know

I'm gonna buy a one way ticket

On a west bound train

Gonna have my breakfast

With some pink lemonade

I'm gonna sail the ocean

Gonna spread my wings

Gonna climb that mountain

Gonna do everything

Yeah yeah

That was pretty much how the rest of the cleaning went. With Melody singing along to the songs as she and Monty half cleaned and half danced.

By late that night Melody put her broom up in the cleaning closet and smiled contentedly as she surveyed the now spotless music store. Shelves were lined with records and CD's of every singer imaginable. One corner had a small selection of musical instruments available for sale and in another corner was the register. There was even a bird stand behind the counter for Monty to perch on.

"Well I think we did a pretty good job Monty." Melody said smiling at the parrot. Monty squawked in agreement and nodded his head.

Melody suddenly let out a yawn and glanced at the clock on the wall. It was nearing 11:00 o'clock.

"Wow it's that late already? Well I guess we better get to bed. Come on Monty. Tomorrows the first day of the rest of our lives."

Monty nodded and flew over and landed on the top of Melody's head. The unicorn giggled and then started up the stairs that lead up to the living space of the building. The first floor consisted of the store while the second floor would be used for Melody and Monty's living space, with a spare room which would be used for storage for merchandise for the music store.

They arrived at the top of the stairs and Monty flapped his wings and flew off her head and then landed in a nest in the corner of the room. He yawned and turned around in a circle three times before settling down and tucked his head under his wing and quickly fell asleep.

Melody pulled back the covers on her bed and then snuggled under the blankets.

"*yawn* Night Monty. You'll see tomorrow's gonna be a great day."

She leaned over and blew out the candle encasing the room in darkness and soon afterward fell fast asleep, dreaming about her new life in Ponyville.

Sorry this is kinda short but this is supposed to be a prologue. I promise this story will get better. This is just kinda supposed to introduce you all to Melody a little bit. More of her back story will be revealed little bit by little bit as the story goes on.

Next chapter is when the Mane Six appear! :D

Oh and before I forget the song is "One Way Ticket" by LeAnn Rimes with a few "Ponified" verses thrown in.

I hope you all like this story. And remember to please leave a review. They make me happy. ^_^

Bye bye!
