A Little Night Music is a Pokémon Fanfic by author srgeman. The plot focuses on Angela Duncan, who, having lived an awful 16 years, decides to kill herself. Once she does, however, she meets Mew and is offered the chance to be reborn as a Pokemon. She accepts, and is surprised when the first person she sees is her friend from down the street.
This fic is notable for starting a fad among writers, primarily based around the its Reincarnation mechanics. It also deserves recognition for having over twenty characters, all of whom are well thought out and have rather distinct personalities.
The fic also has a sequel: Smiles Of A Summer Night. After the events of the first fic, Angela and co. decide to head to Johto.
