'Won't let this happen to the Crystal Ponies' by Neko-me 'Won't let this happen to the Crystal Ponies' by Neko-me
In the latest episode for me the most touching scene was Dashie's disappointment. Though it wasn't exposed that much I know this feeling very well :(. And she did not let down the ponies in the Crystal Kingdom. She is the best! :D

Thanx for the favs and the comments!

The origins of a character provides a more detailed approach towards her persona and Dashie is no exception to that rule. The similar style used in both forms also suggest a deeper fact, Dashie might be a tough mare, but her innocent heart still keeps those bitter memories as a timeless event in her life, forgetting them could trigger the same bitter nightmares all over again in the present day. The longer I stare at this drawing, the harder it becomes to remain happy, not only did you manage to gather both light and darkness, but also provide a double edged fact linked towards our minds, forgetting our mistakes might doom us all to make them all over again as if it was the first time. It was good to see Dashie achieve something she was denied on behalf of the crystal ponies. Excellent drawing with deep thoughts used on its making, well applied skills, Dashie would be proud of your awesome work my friend.

"That was what disappointment felt like.  That was what defeat felt like.  That was what failure felt like.  That day, I made myself a promise that I would never, ever let myself feel that again.  So I started practicing hard, pushing myself to my limits and beyond.  Whenever I doubted myself, I looked at that flag on the wall, and remembered that day, and said to myself, "Never again."

Hey, Rainbow Dash here... yeah, pretty much. If you were in my horseshoes, though...
I doubt you'd want to have it happen again.
(I'd better get off her computer, I think Twi's coming)

"Rainbow Dash, there is a very logical reason behind the decision to repeatedly rejected proposition by Cloudsdale to host the Equestrian Games."

"What's that?"

"Economics - Do you know how expensive it would be, for example, to spam Cloud-Walking spells to non-pegasi ponies that constitutes two-thirds of the Equestrian population? (And it's not like the weather hub of Equestria had a much of a tourism industry to begin with.)"

You're right, though magic is free especially if it is done by Celestia.

Clouds are easily relocated: simply lowering the altitude of the city for the duration of the games would solve that nicely.

That, and it has been canonically shown that pegasi can compress clouds to allow non-pegasi to be supported by them too. It would be a lot of effort to create all the cloud "bricks", but it would be something that would be worth the biggest sporting event in Equestria to its most physical race~

Heh...physical...race~

THATS! JUST! IMPOSSIBLE! I mean, think about it!

Clouds are made up of condensed water vapor, which makes them lighter. Therefore, if you try to compress a cloud or clouds, it won't make it denser, it'll just make it heavy and turn it into precipitation!

It's basic science. Everyone knows that!

Yeah I read the follow-up in EQD and the writer (dunno who did that XD) was right that Rainbow matured and her personality developed a great deal. Now she takes responsibility and steps up if needed. Probably that is why she is my favourite. Despite her weaknesses she is a very complex pony with a huge emotional EQ. I just fear how Dashie would react to Twilight becoming an Allicorn. I don't deny it I was a bit devastated at first, but now I think Twiley deserves it a great deal. Sometimes she is a pain in the ... XD, but she can be very kind, a true leader and her calmness in the latest episode proved it. She didn't paniced, but remained calmed and tried to come up something that is better in the situation.

Hopefully the fact that she helped so much the crystal ponies she can now move on. She took care of this business. Or if you will, defeated her own demon.
