Dazzle: The Movie


Chapter 1: Dazzle, Blaze and Dusk

Adagio threw open the door to her apartment and marched triumphantly inside.

“IT’S HAPPENED!” she announced.

Within seconds her two sisters were by her side.

“Did you get our magic back?” Aria asked.

“You got lunch?!” Sonata gasped.

“You found the way back to Equestria?”


Better.” Adagio took a step back and handed them each a brown paper bag.

“You two unpack the groceries, I’ll be waiting in the living room.”

Excited by the prospect of good news, the two siren siblings quickly obeyed their sister’s command. Soon the groceries were neatly packed away and the three of them were all seated opposite one another in the living room. Adagio sneered at her sisters’ eager eyes.

“Well?” Sonata asked excitedly.

Adagio gave a triumphant laugh.

I’ve been discovered.”

Aria frowned. “Someone knows you’re a siren?”

Adagio tutted, rolling her eyes. “Nooo, I meant somebody finally appreciates me for the wonder that I am.”

Sonata gasped. “You got a boyfriend!?”

“What? No!”



“Oh my god, she has!”

“Sonata I, ugh, no… okay,” Adagio regained her composure. “Girls… I’m sure you both know my job?”

They nodded.

“Collecting tables at Donut Joe’s?” Aria asked.

“Which is a crummy job if you ask me,” Sonata interrupted, “I mean, where would you put them all when you’re done? Tables can’t just fit into your pocket, y’know.”

Aria groaned.

“I hope, for my genes’ sake, that you’re adopted.”

“That’s not nice,” Sonata frowned.

“I’m not nice.”

Girls,” Adagio said sternly, “are you going to keep interrupting me?”

Her younger sisters rolled their eyes.

“Sorry, Adagio,” they said identically.

Adagio smiled and continued.

“So, you recall how I told you about the very good looking English guy who comes in? The one with the suit, always talking on his little earpiece thingy?”

“The one you’re always dropping spoons in front of?” Aria asked.


“You’ve mentioned him.”

“Okay, well…” Adagio smirked, raising her eyebrows. “I might just so happened to have been eavesdropping on one of his calls… And it turns out he’s actually a movie producer…”

Aria groaned and threw her arms into the air.

“Aw, not this again, Adagio!”

“Whaaat? I haven’t even said anything yet!” Adagio held her hands up in defense.

“Lemme guess,” Aria rolled her eyes, “you showed him the script you’ve been writing?”

Adagio smirked and looked away.


“You’re an embarrassment,” Aria shook her head. “What did he say?”

Adagio’s eyes flickered up and she released a cheeky grin.

“He loved it.”

Aria’s mood faltered as her annoyed expression was replaced with one of surprise.

“Wait, really?”

Adagio’s grin grew wider.

“He’s going to pitch it to the studio, and he wants us on board as advisers.”

“You’re serious?” Aria’s eyes grew wide.

“For realzies?” Sonata asked.

Adagio turned to her younger sister with an almost predatory grin.

“For realzies.”

“This is amazing…” Aria stood up. “This is our chance to make something of ourselves! We don’t need the gems to be adored anymore, we can be famous instead!”

“I know.” Adagio smiled.

“This is the best thing that’s happened to us since we discovered Equestrian magic!”

“You’re welcome.”

“This is the start of the rest of our lives. You’ve seen how popular movie and actors are these days, if we can make this work we’ll rule the world!”

“No need to thank me.”

“This is amazing, this is fantastic, this is-“

“Strange seeing you so happy, I don’t like it,” Sonata grimaced.

Aria frowned and smacked her sister on the side of her head. “That better?”

“Yes,” Sonata smiled.

Aria shook her head and sat down, still smiling.

“This is amazing. So what do we have to do?” she asked.

“Huh?” Adagio asked.

“Like, what do we have to do?”

“What do you mean?”

“What’s our job as advisers, Adagio?” Aria asked, a hint of annoyance in her voice.

“Ohhhh….” Adagio’s face dropped. “…Oh. Erm… We, advise?”

“Advise who?”

Advise… the film making… people.”

“What about?”

“…the film.”

“What about the film?”


“You don’t know what our job is, do you?”

“I do not.”

Aria groaned.

“Did he mention anything about what we’d be doing?”

Adagio thought.

“Well, he said we’d get a say in just about everything if the film got green lit… Casting, wardrobe, merchandise… everything, really.”

“Casting?” Aria asked.

“Merchandise!?” Sonata asked louder.

Adagio nodded.

“So, we aren’t playing ourselves then?” Aria frowned.

Adagio rolled her eyes. “Aria, you’d be fine, but me and Sonata have never acted a day in our life, you can’t expect us to headline a major Hollywood production.”

Aria sighed. “Guess not. You got any ideas?”

“For casting?”

Aria nodded.

Adagio thought for a second. “Haven’t really had chance to think about it, honestly. I rushed home to tell you girls the news as soon as I found out.”

“Well, let’s do that,” Aria suggested. “Let’s try and figure out who we want to cast.”

“And then merchandise?” Sonata asked.

Aria nodded, “and then we’ll do merchandise.”

Sonata squealed. “I am soooooo getting a Sonata Funko!”

“Well, girls,” Adagio grinned, “first and foremost, I think it’s obvious who should play me.”

Her younger sisters exchanged glances.

“Who?” Sonata asked.

Adagio rolled her eyes.

“Helena-Bonham Carter! She’s seductive, intimidating, and you’ve seen her hair, she’s just like me.”

Aria let out a small groan.

Adagio cocked an eyebrow.

“You disagree?”

“Ehhh…” Aria shrugged. “She’s getting a bit old now, Dagi. Twenty years ago? Sure. Plus, she’s too crazy for you. She’s a psychopath, you’re just a sadist, and there is a difference.”

Adagio pouted. “She could tone it down a little, I’m sure... Plus they could make her look younger! You’ve seen what the humans can do with all their interwebs these days.”

Aria shook her head, “I still think it’d be easier to find someone different.”

“Oh, oh, do me next!” Sonata squealed.

“Hang on, we haven’t finished with me yet,” Adagio whined.

“We can come back to you, think about who else you want.” She turned to her younger sister, “Right… so we need somebody blonde and annoying…”

“Why blonde? I’m not blonde! Am I? Oh my gosh, am I? Has my life been a lie?!” Sonata began to panic.

“Will you shut up!?” Aria snapped. “Blue isn’t a natural hair style, these are real people playing us. And you act ditzy anyway, so blonde’s perfect for you.”

“It’s Muffins,” Sonata corrected.


“She’s not called Ditzy anymore, her name is Muffins now.”

“What are you talking about?”



“You said I act like her, which I don’t, by the way.”

“Sonata, I’mma ‘bout to slap a bit-“

“ANYWAY,” Adagio butted in, “what were you saying Aria?”

Aria scowled at her younger sister a moment longer before thinking. “We need someone blonde, annoying and a massive idiot to play her…” Her eyes lit up. “I know just the girl!”

“Who?” Her sisters asked.

“Hilary Clinton.”

Adagio gasped. “You leave that magnificence woman out of your right-wing, conservative agenda Aria!”

Sonata sighed. “I miss Bernie.”

“We aren’t getting into this again,” Adagio scolded her group. “Think about it properly, who could play a good Sonata?”

Aria pursed her lips. “What about that one girl, from that film?”

“Oh I know just the one you mean,” Adagio rolled her eyes.

Really? Cause she didn’t give you a lot to go on, gosh, you’re so smart, Dagi,” Sonata smiled.

“I wish mother ate you.”

“That’s not nice.”

“I’m no-”

Which girl did you mean, Aria?” Adagio’s eye twitched.

“From Mean Girls, I forget her name.”

“Lindsey Lohan?” Adagio looked to Sonata.

“Noooo… but she could work too, actually.”

“I don’t think so, she’s too good looking,” Adagio shook her head.


“Which one did you mean originally?” she continued

“The really dumb one.”




“I don’t know her actress’ name, but I can see what you mean, that could work,” Adagio nodded. “I’ll write her a note down. Which just leaves you, Aria.”

“Pfftt please,” Aria shrugged. “We all know who’d be playing me.”

“Who?” Adagio asked.

“That model chick.”

“Again, that doesn’t massively narrow it down, if I’m honest with you.”

“The one with the eyebrows.”

Adagio frowned. “Cara Delavigne?”

Sonata gasped. “Oh my gosh! I can totally see it.”

Aria nodded and pulled a smug grin.

“See? She knows what I’m talking about.”

Adagio nodded and continued quietly, “I can see what you mean. I don’t know why, but I see it.”

Aria grinned. “Guess it’s my BAMF attitude. And you know, she is a model, so makes sense really.”

Adagio laughed, shaking her head. “You are so up yourself.”

Aria clicked her fingers and winked at her big sister. “Learned from the best.”

“Which brings it back around to me...” Adagio nodded. “Honestly, I can’t think of anyone else but the goddess herself.”

“Hmmmm…” Aria thought for a moment. “What about Kazumi Evans? She’s a lot younger.”

Adagio scoffed. “Yeah, and has no resemblance to me whatsoever.”

“Miley Cyrus?” Sonata asked.

“Does she still act?” Aria asked.

Sonata shrugged. “She could pull off Dagi’s scary side, and we know she can sing.”

“She’s got a point,” Aria nodded.

“Ehhh… I don’t know… I mean, her hair is nothing like mine.”

“She could wear a wig?”

“It’s not really the same though…” Adagio pouted.

“You just want Helena to play you, don’t you?”


Aria shook her head. “Fine, whatever.”

“Yay, that’s everyone!” Sonata clapped her hands.

“Helena Botham-Carter, Cara Delavigne and Karen, not a bad line up,” Adagio nodded proudly.

“You know her name isn’t actually Karen, right?” Aria asked.

“Well, I don’t know her real name. Find it out, use the Google,” Adagio waved her hand at Aria’s phone.

Aria snorted. “The Google, never gets old.”

“Just search the name!”

“I am, I am!” Aria laughed as she scrolled through her phone. “Okay, found it. The actress is called Amanda Seyfried.”

“Seyfried?” Sonata asked.

Aria nodded.

“That’s a weird name, I don’t like it. Pick a different one for me,” Sonata pouted.

Aria frowned. “We can’t just change your actress because you don’t like her name!”

“But Adagio’s one got three names!”

“It’s a double barrel actually, Bonham-Carter counts as one,” Adagio corrected her.

“That’s cheating.”

“How is it cheating!?” Aria snapped.

“You don’t get to add in an extra name and say it counts as one. If that’s how it works, then I want to be played by Amanda Seyfried-Sanders”.

Aria frowned, “Sanders?”

Adagio groaned.

“If this is another Bernie reference, I swear-”

“It’s a KFC reference, actually! Not my fault Bernie based his name off of the best fried chicken restaurant in the US, the guy clearly just has good taste for secret recipe herbs and spices.”

Aria turned to Adagio.

“What do you think the world looks like in her mind?”

“Millions of voices crying out in terror, wishing to be silenced.”

“Sounds like bliss,” Aria nodded solemnly.

“So, we’ve got,” Adagio looked down at the paper she’d been writing on, “Helena Bonham-Carter, Cara Delavigne and Amanda Seyfried.”


“Sonata, I will cut you.”

“Seyfried it is.”

“Is there anyone else we need to cast?” Aria asked. “I mean, presumably it’s not just us in the movie.”

Adagio grinned. “Actually, there are more: The Rainblossoms. But luckily, I already have the perfect people in mind.”

“Really?” Aria sounded impressed.

Adagio nodded.

“Because, I mean, you’d have to find some pretty annoying people to play them...”


“They’d need to be annoying, but somehow manage to be boring at the same time.”

“Of course.”

“Somebody who does what it says on the tin, you know, what you see is what you get.”


“Annoying, boring and predictable… so who’d you pick?”

“Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.”

Aria nodded.

“What about the rest of the girls?”

Adagio paused and frowned.

“There were more than four?”

Aria shrugged. “I don’t even know.”

“It doesn’t matter, no one will notice,” Adagio shook her head, scribbling the names down.

“So, can we have a look at the script?” Sonata asked.

Adagio’s smile shrank.

“You know I don’t like you girls reading my writing…” she said humbly.

“Come on, Dagi, we’ll be nice!” Sonata smiled.

“Yeaaah, plus you kinda need to show us now, if this really is happening,” Aria nodded.

Adagio rolled her eyes. “I guess…”

Adagio leaned over to her purse and unfurled a paper script out of it.

“Wait, why did you take a copy of it with you to work?” Sonata asked.

Adagio smiled. “You never know when opportunity may strike.”

“Hey, hang on!” Sonata snapped. “Why’s it called Dazzle: The Movie? Why is it only named after you?”

Adagio waved her off. “It’s short for Dazzlings.”

Which is named after you,” Aria nodded. “You named the band after yourself.”

“Yes,” Adagio nodded. “So it’s representative of us as a group, and of me on my own, since I’m the main character.”

Aria snorted.

“You are not the main character.”

Adagio frowned. “I’m the leader?”

“So?” Aria asked. “Picard is the Captain of the Enterprise, but he’s just one of many characters that make up the show, doesn’t automatically make him the main one.”

“Who is the what?”

“Yeaaah, you lost me on that one too Aria,” Sonata nodded.

Aria groaned and shook her head. “You aren’t the main character. We come in a three piece set.”

“Tell that to the toy line,” Adagio mumbled.


“Nothing.” Adagio waved her off. “Lemme guess then, what would you find a preferable title? Just Blaze? That might attract the wrong kind of audience, if you ask me.”

“Or the right kind,” Aria gave a cheeky grin.

Adagio pointed an accusing finger at her younger sister. “Stop it, I’ve told you about those jokes.”

“I’m kiddingggggg!” Aria held her hands up. “And no, I’m not saying it should called Blaze. What about Dazzle, Blaze and Dusk?”

Adagio shook her head. “That’s too long, and then you can’t have The Movie in the title.”

“Do we need The Movie in the title? I mean, it’s going to be pretty obvious they’re watching a movie anyway,” Sonata contributed.

“It just sounds better,” Adagio shrugged.

“What about The Dazzlings: The Movie then?” Aria asked.

“You can’t have The twice!”

“What about The Dazzlings Movie?” Sonata asked.

“That could work,” Aria nodded.

“Ehhh, I’m not sure,” Adagio shook her head.

“You always do this!” Aria groaned. “You always just go Ehhhh and sound uncomfortable. Be honest, are you actually going to change the name of the movie after this discussion?”

Adagio shrugged. “Probably not.”

“You’re so self-centered,” Aria shook her head.

“You know it doesn’t work as an insult if I embrace it, right?” Adagio asked.

“It wasn’t an insult, it was a statement,” Aria spat.

“So we’re sticking to Dazzle: The Movie, then?” Sonata deflated.

Adagio nodded. “Sorry sweetheart, if you wanted your name in the title, you should have done some of the work.”

“…Adagio?” Aria asked, looking up from the script book.


“This the plot of Avatar: The Last Airbender?”


“…but from the point of view of Princess Azula?”

Adagio shrugged. “And?”

Aria nodded, “Fair play.”

“I’m so excited,” Sonata squealed.

“This is looking good,” Aria held up the script. “This could mean something.”

“You’re welcome,” Adagio began checking her nails.

Aria smiled. “Thank you, Adagio, really.”

“Thank you Dagiiiii!” Sonata pulled the group into a hug.

“So, one more question?” Aria asked.


“You haven’t actually told us anything about him, who is this film producer? Is he big?”

Adagio smiled. “Oh, he’s a great guy, always gives me loads of attention when he comes in. He’s called Ben Dover.”

“Wait, what?”

“Sounds familiar,” Sonata mused.
