is a Fan Fic
based on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
, written by Jimmy Lethal
. It is a sequel to Can't Be Saved
The story is once again told from Vinyl Scratch's perspective, who continues to have nightmares like the one described in detail in Can't Be Saved.
Her most recent one causes her to fear no one cares about her, and when her coltfriend/music partner Ace Spade
gets all the attention the following day, the DJ decides to take matters into her own hooves. She kidnaps him and plays the show herself, but when the crowd begins to leave, Vinyl magically locks all the doors and holds them hostage. However, Ace escapes, and helps her figure out her nightmares are causing her Sanity Slippage. Vinyl apologizes to both Ace and the crowd, and she doesn't have any more nightmares.
