A short horror story about a young mare who really loves her craft. I mean art.
The protagonist is a random canterlot stallion who one day hears a beautiful yet haunting melody coming from an apartment down a narrow street in a dark and murky part of Canterlot.
Short, interesting, and dare I say competently written. It does as well as a 3,3k word one-shot can do to establish a haunting atmosphere. Despite its constraints, I found it enjoyable.
