I'm angry, /mlp/. I'm so inexplicably fucking angry. I have been on the ride since 2012, but I recently got my roommate on the ride as well. I've been rewatching the series with him and having a total blast until motherfucking season 3 episode 7 (and regardless of this post, I still love all of pony. Every season best season). I like Lightning Dust. Always have, but I don't know if I was fucking braindead the first time I watched this or brutally apathetic because the injustice of what happened to her is so fucking great that I wish I could teleport to Equestria not to save the day with [INSERT WAIFU], not to make a life for myself, not to engage in fluffy pastel horse activities. No, I want to go just so I can punch Rainbow Dash square in her fucking special snowflake face.

Don't get me wrong, the cunt can fly, and boy is she good. And BOY is she fucking aware of it. It's no secret that RD's ego could eclipse the fucking sun, but the moment someone as good as her shows up, the moment somebody dares to "push herself" more than her, the moment somebody dares to actually fucking work for being a Wonderbolt instead of blabbing on and on about her entitlement to the position, she caves. She bitches and fucking moans about being made wingpony over Lightning Dust. Well you know what, you stupid little bitch, Spitfire made the two of you a team so you can push each other's limits. So you can get better. Imagine that, you horrible fucking person, you can actually get better at flying. You can actually try. Wouldn't that be insane? Wouldn't that be just the craziest thing ever? But through that, this slut still has the fucking GALL to go to Spitfire and request being made lead pony.


Entitled. Little. Shit.

Dash didn't fucking realize that she didn't get made lead pony not because of any bias, but because Lighting Dust is a better fucking flier. And you know what? I'm inclined to believe that Lightning Dust actually worked for it. That she actually fucking trained for it instead of lying around on a cloud all day like a fucking scumbag waiting for Soarin to whisk her away to a fairy tale land where you can become the world's greatest athlete by fucking right of birth.

Lightning Dust shows initiative and willingness to get better and what happened? She fucked up. Lightning Dust put people in harm's way and, unfortunately, she doesn't have Level 7 Plot Armor like Rainbow Dash does, so she gets kicked out of the Wonderbolts. One of the only two fliers in that entire platoon worthy of the name Wonderbolt got kicked out because she had repeatedly shown initiative. Was it reckless? Absolutely. Was it dangerous? Absolutely. So fucking reprimand her. Slap her shit. Make her fly laps. Act like a fucking proper coach. Spitfire even called the tornado and effective tactic before Rainbow Dash continued her rant. Don't demolish the notion of thinking outside the box and pushing yourself, you know, leadership qualities, and fucking kick her out. Yeah, kick her out, when she has so clearly worked harder than the stupid OC-looking, rainbow-haired cunt who does nothing but care about herself and has had every talent she ever boasted about handed to her on a garnished silver platter.

And who did Lightning Dust endanger? The five ponies who went into the fly-zone of the most elite air team during training on an unauthorized visit? AND IT ENDED BADLY? HOLY SHIT. I WOULD HAVE NEVER FUCKING SEEN THAT ONE COMING. And through all of this, things got heated for Rainbow Dash, and you know what she did? She quit like the whining coward she is and cried until Momma Spitfire stepped in and kicked out the superior pegasus.

So the episode ends with a "serves you right!" and a "that'll teach you, you villain!" when people like fuckmothering Discord, a dude who has committed so many atrocities, gets a redemption for admittedly no reason at first other than "he'd be useful tho" (I love you Discord). The show that prides itself on painting nobody as wholly evil painted someone who wasn't evil at all in the fucking first place as wholly evil. Bam. Dreams crushed. Hard work ruined. Lesson learned, hard work gets you nowhere, trying shit gets you nowhere, making mistakes gets you nowhere (especially when nobody gives you the chance to learn from them), being a protagonist and bitching incessantly though, that'll get you anywhere in life.

Fuck you Rainbow Dash. Fuck you.

I like Lightining Dust too, but your whole rant lost credibility at the very beginning.
Really RD, pony who dedicated her whole life to flying, and train constantly, is just lying whole time on clouds, right?
>>
(OP btw)

>>30025425
She's definitely not entirely blameless, that's for true. And you're right, her reckless ways would almost certainly lead to someone getting hurt, and I do think that she should have been severely punished, I'm simply stating that kicking her out was way too harsh and kinda anti-theme given what the show normally does.

Also, got a giggle out of "green megacunt."

>>30025628
She's rarely if ever shown training for the Wonderbolts role, and she certainly takes the whole idea less seriously than Lightning Dust. It's definitely her goal, like, RD is super obsessed with being a Wonderbolt, but I always felt like she got caught up in the fantasy and neglected actually being prepared for it because of her natural disposition of being a really good flier.

I'm sorry to read your rant, OP. I've been standing for Lightning Dust since forever. If you look up in the archive, about a half of the posts saying "Lightning Dust did nothing wrong" are mine. Every time we got a synopsis about either a Wonderbolts episode or something mentioning an old character, I posted a reply saying that I hoped that it was Lightning Dust. I've lost the count of how many times I've said that she deserves a second chance, and that I'd be more than happy to see her becoming a Wonderbolt.

I understand that you need someone to blame, but I'm a Dashfag and I think that you're being extremely unfair. And I seriously can't understand why it took you four and a half years to realize that Lightning Dust was mistreated on the show.

I don't know if you're serious, or if you were just baiting, but I don't care. I still really want to see these two becoming friends and flying together with the Wonderbolts.

There's a middle ground there. Lightning Dust wasn't completely blameless, but considering the insane shit that gets forgiven in the show, if there was a character the writers care about in her place, LD would probably walk away scot-free as a Wonderbolts member.
LD being the lead pone was legit, but then she started pushing herself too much, to the detriment of her team members. She deserved punishment, but not being kicked out, unless it's a "try again next year" kind of deal, then it's okay.
But if Dash was in LD's place we would just see some bullcrap excuse like in Newbie Dash, because RD saved Equestria and farted a sonic rainboom so she can do whatever and will never be sacked.
>>
>>30025793
I dunno, I always felt like RD is training a lot, she's often shown doing some stunts, her work involve a lot of flying, it's not like she has only "talent" and that's it, she worked a lot for her place in team.
Lightning Duts also has natural talent for that, like every other pony with flying related cutiemark.

Sounds like it's your problem for falling in love with a fictional cartoon character, and not even some fleshed-out character, but a one-time villain of the week that nobody was ever going to develop. The story suggests that she was in the wrong because she chose career > friends and IIRC Mane Six could die because of her (I've never watched the episode again ever since it came out). That's it. No need to write five fucking paragraphs defending a secondary antagonist that was created to be wrong for one ep.

I do blame Rainbow largely for what happened to her, but you're right, the two of them becoming friends and both of them becoming Wonderbolts is probably the best thing that could happen. I think it's disappointing that one of the only characters that could give Dash a run for her money and make her a seriously legendary flier got the ax. Spitfire definitely has a point: they'd be an unstoppable team!

>>30026486
>>30026494
That's an interesting thought. Hopefully the Wonderbolt academy didn't ban her forever and it's something to be redeemed. At the very least it can ease the pain in headcanon!

Lightning Dust was my very first waifu. And she is the only canon poner I consider even remotely waifu-tier.
I hope she never comes back, the writers would fuck her up like they did with literally every single character they brought back.
Don't be sad that she's gone, be happy that they left her alone, S3E7 is where we see a great and beautiful pony who does her best, a real piece of art of a character. Not even the fandom really cares for her because she encroached on their favorite mary sue.
She was too perfect for even Equestria.

That's the theory I had. Lightning Dust would make an obvious candidate for a Rainbow Dash substitute for new 6 and with the upcoming Wonderbolts episode, it's definitely possible. Save me, Glimmy. I do worry they'd fuck it up though.

>>30032353
I'd prefer if they left Lightning alone. Of all the characters in mlp she was different, she faced real consequences for going on with real aspirations. Her skills came from training and hard work and creativity. Dash just has simulated perfection written in.
Of every single pony in the show, she was the most real. She almost felt real, even if by accident. She was a realistic character I think we can all relate to. I don't want the new writers to ruin her.

She's been my waifu for the longest time, mainly because she was the first and only smile I've ever cared to protect. It always seemed like she had shit stacked against her from the very beginning, and I don't think anyone should have to deal with that alone. She tried her best and got fucked over for it, no one deserves that, she lost her shot at being a Wonderbolt over something that really wasn't her fault.
And no one seems to like her except for a few Anons, everyone else takes Dash's side on it, she was literally made to fail from the start and all I want to do is make her smile and I can't because life is shitty like that.

Let's be clear on one point. Lightning Dust was both unapologetic and dismissive about the ponies she nearly killed. Something is seriously wrong with her, and it's possible that this is why the Wonderbolts chose not to keep her around. That said, I want to see her again.

That's hardly a fair judgement. Trixie showed no remorse for her actions and deliberately endangered all of Ponyville for horrible reasons, not to better herself for a noble goal, even if the methods were questionable. She didn't show remorse until a way later date/episode. Despite all of that, Trixie still got redemption. Lightning Dust didn't even get a chance to show remorse at all. She didn't even get to be present for the decision of her future. It was only Rainbow Dash and Spitfire that go to decide which makes absolutely no sense. All that happened was Spitfire said "You're right, Dash, fuck Lightning Dust."

She then ripped the Lead Pony badge off of Lightning Dust, and was ordered to walk away. And Lightning Dust looked like she felt fucking awful. Ask her if she would do it again while she was walking away and I bet she'd show great remorse. This is exactly why she should have been punished, and not just straight up kicked out.

I'd almost agree with if you if you weren't so delusional to completely support LD in this situation. What happened with LD was over the top but she did objectively make a shitty decision with no coercion and RD did not fuck up by ratting on her to their superior.

It's a team based position and she doesn't give a shit about the team. That means she is not currently ready to be a Wonderbolt. Maybe completely kicking her wasn't the best option but it was a serious fuck up and goes completely against the WB.
>>30033592
Trixie is a solo performer who is self employed. WB is an organization that has ponies putting their lives in each others hooves. If you're a sociopath, that's a much bigger problem for the latter. She didn't care about the lives at stake, she cared about being a WB. Crying because you're not a WB and only saying what you did was wrong because it doused your chances would only further seal the deal.

You can't almost accidentally six people and expect nothing to happen to you.
>>
>>30035950
regardless of the presence of the Mane 6, LD made a bad decision, made it knowing that it could injury ponies, and did not show remorse. If every other pony in the world was Hitler, that wouldn't make what LD did any more of a bad decision.

The WB has a strict "don't endanger fellow ponies" rule. LD broke it and didn't care and that's immediate grounds for being kicked out. She could be the best flier in the world. The WBs care about safety.
>>
>>30035976
Which is fine, I accept actions have consequences.

But the whole "your dream has now died, have a good life" ending just feels unpleasant for this show. As if it's leading to something else but it's never happened.
>>
>>30034314
I have an idea for an episode but I don't know how to flesh it out into a full story.
>>
I accept that the tornado and subsequent damage was an accident, and that the mane six had nebulous reasons for being there, but the decision to make the tornado came as result of continued reckless and unchecked behavior. The pony keeping score was almost hit by the tornado too. In the end, while I do agree being completely kicked out was excessive, her behavior and lack of empathy for both teammates and six random civilians do not bode well for a potential wonder bolt. Pushing yourself to the limit is no excuse to be reckless.
>>
>>30036122
Maybe Spitfire should have actually done more than encourage her to be careless?
>>
>>30036001
If LD learns to give a shit about others, I don't see why she can't be 'redeemed'. As for at that moment, I can completely see why they booted someone who is both physically capable enough to pull off life threatening shit, enough of a bigshot in a group of bigshots to coerce others into hurting themselves, and not caring enough about the lives of others to really care.
>>
>>30036218
to conceptualize that better, and to tie in your prior Trixie example. You can act like a bit of a reckless cunt to others and people might forgive you in every day life. If you're a soldier and you point your gun at an officer, you'd be lucky if they made you a janitor let alone kicking you out on the spot. It's a different context where safety is far more relevant than everyday life.

As of Fluttershy Leans In all of the Mane 6 have at least one rival in their profession. And episode that teams them up as an Alt Six would be preddy sweet IMO.
Not even as "villains", just in a casual Slice of Life situation. Half of them are already on quasi-friendly terms with the MCs, set up some friendly competition. Maybe Trixie feels excluded from [insert team-based game here] so captains her own to show Twilight & co up.

Yes, but in Magic Duel, something that painted her in a much worse light, it was all her decision, even if she did show remorse at the end of the episode where she for some reason got 0 punishment for what she did.

>>30036130
This is another thing. The lack of Spitfire's intervention feels a bit weird to me. Spitfire was totally on board with Lightning Dust's actions until Rainbow Dash convinces her otherwise. Maybe Spitfire didn't notice how dangerous LD was being in the examples prior to the tornado, but why not? Shouldn't she be vigilant for that sort of thing? And if she did notice, why not stop it there before Lightning Dust got convinced that it was okay and the best way to impress your superiors?

Her team was her and RD.
If anything, she gave too much of a shit about her team being as unstoppable as Spitfire expected them to be.

That would be bad ass, but the fact that she kept getting worse afterwards suggests it's just normal little kid eye problems and that LD coincidentally got better as Derpy started getting worse.

maybe we'll get an episode where they meet up again. LD remembers they use to be cool but drifted apart when her performance dropped, even making fun of her and now feeling guilty about it.

It worries me that there was a problem with the voice actor or that maybe they had plans for her but then decided on never using her again so they wanted something more final. Then again, even if you did think that way it wouldn't be necessary to kick her out. You could just have her show up in the background and stuff.

Possible, although there have been enough Wonderbolt eps that you'd expect she'd have been mentioned by now.
She had a nonspeaking flashback cameo appearance in Parental Glideance, so the animators clearly remember that she exists.
The real question is, do you want her to come back and be handled by the current batch or writers? I mean, really?

I agree. Hopefully, there's an episode where she ends up opening or joining a different kind of performance group that proves to be much more successful than Wonderbolts - if not, I'll have to write a fanfic. I swear, if they give Trixie another dozen of episodes but do not even give Dust a second one I'll be angry. And to think the original ending was so much better but they had to change for some retarded reason.

you know what the really sad thing is?
It's pretty obvious the Dust wanted to be friends with Dash. Maybe she'd isolated herself from others pursuing her goal. She was happy to meet someone who could keep up with her. Who understood her.

If the episode had been written a little better, she could have been the one to learn a lesson and they could become closer later in the series. Then Dash would a pegasus other than Flutters to hang out with.

>Probably marking the end of the Wonderbolts show
>You wondered if they would even notice you were gone

>Your final thoughts were cut short as your eyes met a bright crackle of light within the clouds
>Could the clouds in Cloudsdale have lightning?
>Isn't that something the pegasi could control?
>Moments after the flash, an ear-shattering boom rang out through the sky
>Bursting from the earlier flash of light, a streak of green with a core of gold lightning began to race towards you at an unimaginable speed
>There's no fucking way
>Your eyes betrayed common logic, as the streak proceeded closer and closer to you despite the speed at which you were currently falling
>Even through the rush of wind you could hear the ever-approaching screech of a pegasus at mach speed
>You had always kept a fairly safe distance at the Wonderbolts shows, you had never been so close to that kind of power
>Guess she still had it, huh?
>As your savior approached closer and closer you thought to yourself
>Isn't she drunk?
>There's a good chance she could still get you killed
>Are there laws against drinking and flying?
>There probably should be
>Are you really in a position to argue though?

>She turned her head, and you made eye contact only for a brief moment before she grabbed you
>This probably went much better in her head, but in her drunken state she couldn't recover her balance
>What started as a grab turned into a tackle

IMO they shouldn't bring her back bitter but apologetic. Make Dash the one who's bitter.

"I'm a security guard for the Wonderbolts, so I've clearly heard some things about you. Mostly from Rainbow Dash. They said you were pretty mean, yet here you are."

"I'd say you've been rather nice to me. Besides, you didn't have to stick around for me to wake up."

"Yeah, that'd be nice. I have a place in Ponyville, so I guess I'll wait there until Rainbow Dash comes to tell me how much of a fuck up I am for vanishing last night."
>You began walking again and she flew to your side, landing next to you

>We don't see Twilight in her study all that much
We don't see that ANY MORE. Ever since Twilight ascended we haven't seen her do anything. It's a mystery what she spends her time on while off screen. She used to talk about studying non-stop, but now she dumps exposition and... I don't know what else.

Dash has shaped up to be awful, though. She's never at practice even though she's on the team, and when she's on screen she's behaving in a way that should get her kicked from the Wonderbolts. Changing the routines, pulling stunts, being self-absorbed and dangerous. She's not overly-ambitious, she's got a crippling inferiority complex that prevents Dash from working reliably as part of a group.

I think it's also fair to argue that the show bases its "redemption" criteria on how the audience received the character. Likeable villains get converted to mediocre good guys so they can regularly appear and have their own slice of life moments, which undermines them for the sake of screen time. We all loved Discord as a villain, so now we get to watch him suck up to Spike and Big Mac so he can play DnD. Granted, Discord still plays a villain most of the time, and I get the impression DeLancie is ad-libbing his lines because they're sometimes too blunt or funny to be part of modern MLP, but still. The whole point of his redemption was to neuter him and give him more screen time.

>Her face obtained a hue of red as she placed a hoof over her blackened eye and turned away slightly
>Her other eye was looking at the floor
>You imagined the bruise definitely made her feel less pretty
>You would have guessed she would have thought the injuries made her look cool, but then again, there wasn't really anything cool about a black eye
>With one hand you removed the hoof covering her face and with the other, you turned her to look at you
>The red in her face became more prominent through her blue-green fur
>You had to admit to yourself, it was kind of funny to see someone with her reputation so nervous
"Dust, it's okay."
>Running your fingers through her mane, you pulled her back in
>With renewed confidence, Lightning Dust met your lips once more
>Almost aggressively
>After a few more moments, you pushed her away softly
>Her eyes opened
>"Huh?"
>You laughed
>I should go get something for your eye, I'll be right back."
>It's almost like she snapped back to reality
>"R-right! You should do that."
>You stood up and Lightning Dust moved back to the other side of the couch with a flap of her wings
>You found a simple wash cloth, wet it, and placed a few cubes of ice in it before making your way back to your new-found companion
>>
>>30090460

>The pegasus smiled brightly as you returned
>You handed your make-shift ice pack to her and sat down once again
>She placed it on her damaged eye and sighed
>"Thanks Anon, that feels a lot better. I don't remember getting hit in the face, but it sure fucking hurts."
>After a few seconds she took to the air one more time and landed gently in your lap
"Do you walk anywhere?"
>The one eye you could see rolled
>"Fuck off."
>The two of you laughed
>You gently stroked her as she rested against you
>You really, really didn't want to give this up
>You braced yourself for any response other than the one you wanted
"So..."
>She looked up at you
>God damn those golden eyes were your weakness
>You did your best to rally
"So are we like... a thing now?"
>Lightning dust swiveled around so that she was facing you and smiled
>"Well, do you want to be a thing? I got a feeling I know the answer, but I just want to hear you say it."
>You really needed to stop hanging out with the Wonderbolts crowd
>That damned ego
>Might as well give her the satisfaction
>You sighed
"Yes Lightning Dust, I really want us to be a thing. The makeout session was doing it for me, not gonna lie. I could use that on a regular basis."
>Her eyes adopted a more sultry look
>"I wouldn't mind that either. But not so fast, there's a deal we made, remember? You gotta train with me!"
>Improve your quality of life so that you have a better chance of getting laid?
>What's not to like about this plan?
"Deal"
>You gave her a quick kiss
"So, I have an idea too."
>She seemed amused
>"Is that right?"
>You nodded
"When I first came up to you, you snapped at me because you thought I had been sent after you for whatever reason."
>She was listening
"And you mentioned something about your landlord kicking you out, I think?"
>Her ears fell
>"Yeah. Like I said, I've had a lot of trouble getting back up on my hooves since the academy. I just kinda crash from place to place until they kick me out."
>>
>>30090480
I guess flying isn't the only thing Lightning Dust does fast.
>>
>>30090460
>>30090480
This is fucking adorable.
>>
>>30090480

>You really hoped you weren't about to mess this one up
"I know it isn't the greatest place in the world, but..."
>She raised an eyebrow
"I mean, if you want. I don't mind if you'd, ya know... stay here."
>Her eyes went a little wide
>Hurry, Anon
"I wouldn't make you pay rent or anything. In fact, I normally have some cash to spare even as a freelance guard. The idea of you just going from place to place makes me sick. And I don't know what image is worse, that or you spending what bits you have left on drinks on a night when you're alone. Look, I... I just want to see you happy."
>What the fuck are you thinking?
>How long had you known Lightning Dust?
>A little over a day? If that?
>And before you met her, everything you had heard about her made her sound menacing
>What if she was playing you?
>What if this is some stupidly elaborate scheme to somehow get back at the Wonderbolts and she's using you to get close to them?
>Okay, maybe not that one
>Regardless, here you are, kissing a mare you barely know and allowing her to move in with you
>On top of that, Lightning Dust is woefully out of your league
>There's no way she would stick around once she got her head screwed on straight
>This whole thing was-
>Lightning Dust dropped the ice pack you had made for her in favor of bringing you into a hug that threatened the integrity of your spine
>"Do you mean it, Anon? I swear, if you're messing with me-"
>Her voice began to break
>Tears hadn't fallen yet
>She was clearly doing her best to act tough
"No joke! I promise!"
>You were ecstatic
"You said you had to be out of there soon right? Would you be comfortable flying over to Cloudsdale and getting your things?"
>She removed herself from your lap, flying well above you now
>"Yes! I don't have a lot, I promise! I'll go get my stuff and I'll be back before you know it!"
>She flew in and hugged you one more time
>"Thank you so much, Anonymous!"

"Well, go on! Don't want them throwing your stuff out, do you?"
>She laughed and zoomed out the door
>Damn, she was fast
>Hopefully this was the beginning of one of the greatest comeback stories Equestria's ever seen
>You chuckled
>Maybe you'd be an honorable mention in her autobiography when she became captain of the Wonderbolts
>You made your way to your room as you continued your fantasy about Lightning Dust
>Your ever-present sword buckled to your side reminded you of the other end of the deal
>What if you really did become a royal guard?
>Sir Anonymous, Commander of the Something'th Legion!
>There were steps to be taken, though
>You were fit, and your swordsmanship was okay, but neither were great enough to consider yourself a protector of the Two Sisters.
>Not to mention you lacked the general tact and charisma you imagined someone of such a position possessed
>But enough about those thoughts!
>You removed the pieces of armor that had been adorning you for the duration of this mini-adventure and placed them in a neat pile along with your sword
>Your eyes glanced to a series of photos pinned along your wall
>The friends you had made in the academy graduating along with you
>You smiled
>Of course, you were the only human
"I'll make you guys proud."
>You walked over to your closet, rummaging for anything that Lightning Dust could use during her stay
>You didn't have another bed, so that left the couch
>You weren't about to invite her to your own bed
>Just in case she might find it clingy and creepy
>Keep her options open, Anon!
>Eventually, you found a pillow that looked eerily similar to her coat color
>Maybe she'll find that amusing
>Shortly thereafter, you found one of your only spare blankets
>A bright pink one left by an ex-girlfriend
>You paused to remember the events of your break-up
>Daisy was a bitch, anyway
>She was just piggy-backing off of the success of Roseluck and everyone knew it
>>
>>30097142

>Now was not the time to get bitter
>You placed the items you had salvaged onto the couch and frowned
>There really wasn't a whole lot you could do, huh?
>There was an empty room across from yours but it lacked furnishing in every sense of the word
>No bed or anything
>You placed one of your boots on the couch and pressed down
>It had more give than usual
>You knew you had heard something snap earlier
>You sighed
>She was worth it
>Having done all you could, you resigned to a shower and a meal
>You felt instantly rejuvenated after bathing
>Sleeping in the forest sucked
>That being said, you remembered how it felt to hold Lightning Dust as she slept
>If you were lucky, there were more of those nights to come
>The excitement of the last 24 hours had also made you neglect how hungry you were
>You opted for something a bit healthier this time around
>You were training for a pretty big position now, might as well start to act like it
>In the midst of your meal, you heard a loud banging at your door
>You made your way over at a brisk pace
>Dust was back already?
>She really was the fastest flier in all of Equestria!
>Even though it couldn't have been more than an hour, you were already excited to see her again
>You opened the door, smiling as wide as you could before it crumbled in an instant
>Rainbow Dash stood in your doorway, the mask of her Wonderbolt garb brought down
>Unfortunately, she looked very, very upset with you
>You supposed this had to come around at some point
>And there's no way this will get better once she figured out why you were gone
>She was yelling
>"Anonymous?! Where the fuck have you been?!"
>This is not good

Does anyone have the link of a greentext in which Lightning Dust lives with her parents and watches Anon's life all day on a tv show called my little human and all of a sudden Anon appear and ask her if her favorite human is Vladimir Putin?

I swear it exists, no joke.

I wonder what the sideburns on the wonderbolt trainee uniforms are notionally for.

Lightning I brought blue and yellow, lemme smash

>>30103597
They kinda looked like at one point they could have been blinders. Mostly I assume it was an homage to the high necked uniforms of army in the 1800s.

Thank you Anon!

Totally agree

>Maybe Lightning Dust's bravado was rubbing off on you, but you couldn't find it within you to care
"Why does it matter? Were you worried you'd have to actually count the tickets yourself without your bellboy?"
>Using the insult Lightning Dust used on you last night felt weird, but drove your point home nonetheless
>Rainbow Dash was not amused
>She brought herself inside your home, slamming the door behind her with her back leg
>"Are you seriously getting an attitude with me? You walked out on a job! A job that I got for you, you bastard! Do you know how that makes me look?"
>Oh yes, Dash
>Your life must be so difficult
"Your worried about how you look? Your a fucking Wonderbolt, Dash. There's only a handful of ponies in the world that can claim a status similar to yours. Forgive me for feeling like an absolute fucking idiot being your chaperone."
>Rainbow Dash flew up to you and pressed her face into yours, forcing you to take a few steps back
>"It took blood, sweat, and tears for me to get to where I am! If you can't be bothered with the little stuff, what makes you think you deserve a better position, you entitled prick?!"
>She brought herself closer to you
>You were starting to get angry
>You shoved her away
"I didn't want to walk out, okay?! I just left to get a drink while you and the rest of the Wonderbolts were flexing your extended routine for Cloudsdale. And... some unexpected things came up."
>Rainbow was not convinced
>"Like what? Did you find some other friend to exploit?"
>God damn it
>You anger began to match hers
>"No! Like I was saying, I left to get a drink and while I was there, I met a pony. We sort of hit it off. And I just lost track of time! I'm sorry I bailed on you, but I wouldn't have done it if I felt like it would have mattered if I stayed."

>Dash seemed to ease up a little bit, but her fury was still clearly visible
>It was always kind of hard for her to grasp why you didn't think of yourself like the way she thought of herself
>Your self-esteem hadn't been great for a while
>"You met someone? This better be the greatest pony I've ever met or so help me-"
>You heard a voice from behind Rainbow Dash
>"Anonymous? Why are you yelling?"
>It was Lightning Dust
>You were more sure of your death now than when you were falling from Cloudsdale
>This is about to get way worse before it gets better
>If it gets better
>Celestia, give you strength
>Lightning Dust walked into the door way, saddle-bags on either side of her
>Wonderbolts symbols were embroidered on satchels
>You took a moment to admire that even though she had been kicked out of the academy, she held onto them
>Deep down, she wanted to try again
>No time for that now
>Rainbow Dash's eyes went wide at the sound of her voice before she turned
>She was wrought with disbelief
>"L-Lightning Dust?! WHAT ARE YOU-"
>Dash turned to you, her wings flapping a little more vigorously now
>She looked disgusted
>"Don't tell me that this is the pony you met last night! Lightning Dust?! LIGHTNING DUST, ANON?!"
>You tried to speak
"Rainbow, she's not-"
>She cut you off, shouting
>"Did you forget about how she almost killed my friends? Or what about the time she endangered all of the other cadets? ALL of the times she endangered the other cadets?"
>Lightning Dust spoke up
>"Back off, Rainbow Dash! If you got a problem with me, I'm right here! That is, if you can spit it out without having to take a break to compliment yourself!"
>What did you do to deserve this

>She gestured at her Wonderbolts uniform with a hoof
>She pushed the assault
>"And I didn't have to kill a bunch of ponies to do it. Imagine that!"
>Your hands were white-knuckled
"Dash, that's enough."
>Lightning Dust nearly flinched at her words but came back
>"And what exactly did you do to earn that uniform, Dash? Did you kiss Spitfire's ass even more than you did in the academy?"
>Rainbow Dash was red in the face
>"Keep talking like that and I'll give you an eye to match the other, you bitch!"
>Lightning Dust bit her bottom lip and covered her face with one wing
>She had forgotten about her black eye
>You thought the air around you might heat to plasma
>Rainbow Dash continued
>"Stay far way from Anonymous! Stop ruining other people's lives and keep ruining your own, you worthless excuse for a pegasus!"
>It would seem that Lightning Dust had not properly imagined a rematch
>It was hard to fight back when Rainbow Dash had the moral high ground
>She laughed at her
>"I'll bet you were drunk when you met Anon at the bar last night! Do the drinks help you justify almost killing people to become a Wonderbolt?
>Dust was silent
>"Have you even made a single friend since getting kicked out?"
>Lightning Dust's angry expression was betrayed by a few stray tears
>You couldn't watch this
"Yes, she has"
>Rainbow Dash collided with the doorway, knocking her out of the air
>Lightning Dust gasped
>You stood there, arm outstretched and your fist clenched
>Rainbow Dash blinked a few times, her vision coming back to her and she touched a hoof to her nose
>Two small streams of blood flowed from her nostrils

>A stream of tears flowed from either eye
>In her flustered state, Rainbow Dash couldn't manage any properly structured insult
>She yelled, her voice cracking customarily
>"F-Fuck you, Anon!"
>You wanted to say something, but found yourself speechless
>Your actions had spoken enough, anyway
>She stood up, her eyes wrenched closed
>"FUCK YOU!"
>She flew out the door
>You could hear the fading hum of her swift departure
>All else was silent
>You were pretty sure that if Rainbow Dash wanted to, she could kick your ass seven different ways
>You were a push over compared to an athlete of her caliber
>The fact that she didn't made you feel that much worse
>As you turned to walk away, Lightning Dust spoke
>"Anonymous? Are you okay?"
>You sat on your couch
>You grimaced as you sank lower than you were used to
>Dust had set her saddle bags to the side, gliding over to the seat next to you and landing gently
>"Hey..."
>You didn't turn to look at her
>"I really appreciate you standing up for me like that. I'm sorry that I caused all of this."
>From the corner of your eye, you could see her head lower
>"I'm sorry you had to meet me."
>Finally, you looked over to her
>A small smile crossed your face
"Oh shut up, Dust. It's not your fault. You didn't know Rainbow Dash was going to show up. Besides, she started it."
>You thought for a second
"Well, I guess I did technically by leaving my job while on duty and all of that."
>Lightning Dust smiled
>She seemed relieved that you weren't mad
>>
>>30114064

>You flopped down onto your back, your arms spread across the couch
"I feel like a fucking jerk. I hit her, Dust! Like, how uncool is that?"
>Your staring contest with the ceiling was cut short as you felt hooves pawing at you
>You looked down
>Lightning Dust steadily climbed onto your chest, her forelegs outstretched past your head
>She got comfy and thought for a bit
>"Yeah, that's pretty messed up, but hey, what can you do?"
>You scowled
"Not helping, Dust."
>You felt her fidget some
>"Right, right. I'm trying to find some reserve sympathy for the mare who got me kicked out of the Wonderbolts Academy and then called me a complete failure in front of my only friend."
>You raised an eyebrow
"Only friend?"
>She seemed slightly embarrassed
>"Uh... yeah. Dash was sort of right about that whole 'no friends' thing."
>You found yourself building up anger again as your thoughts drifted to the things Rainbow had said to her
>You decided it was best to try and deflect such thoughts
"Wait a minute."
>She looked to you
>You adopted a humorous tone
"You got you kicked out of Wonderbolt Academy, not Rainbow Dash. She was being a total bitch back there, but that doesn't change what happened!"
>She pressed her head into your chest so that only the tops of her eyes were visible from your angle
>She was looking at you, her voice muffled as she spoke
>"Yeah, so?"
>She was adorable
>The two of you laughed
>You sat up quickly, causing a small, playful scream to come from her
>You embraced her in a hug
>She pressed her head against you, her eyes closed and a smile across her face
"Dust?"
>"Yeah?"
"For what it's worth, I'm glad I met you. You don't have to be sorry."
>She strengthened her grip
>"And for what it's worth, I'm actually not sorry at all that you met me!"
>Dork
>She looked up at you, happy to be in the moment
>"You're kind the best, Anon."
>>
>>30114074

"Yeah, yeah, I know. I'm pretty great."
>You backed off from her some
"Well, I'm actually a total loser. I'm reasonably sure that nobody else in Equestria likes me, but if you think I'm great then that's fine!"
>She giggled
So what all did you bring with you?"
>"Oh!"
>She flew over and grabbed her bags before returning to the couch where you were waiting
>She sat down and rummaged through the pack
>"I didn't bring a whole lot. Necessities mostly. Along with some Wonderbolt merch I couldn't bear to get rid of, a dress, a couple of pictures of-"
>You had to cut her off
"A dress?"
>She immediately got defensive
>This had clearly been a topic brought forth to her before
>Tough girl/athlete stereotypes, you supposed
>"What, I don't get to look pretty every once in a while?"
>You put up your hands in a defenseless gesture
"I didn't say that. It was just surprising, that's all."
>She continued going through her bags, quiet for a bit
>You couldn't resist
"So, can I see it?"
>She looked up, a faint red across her face
>"The dress?"
>You nodded
>"I don't even know if it looks that good. I've never actually uh... worn it."
"Ever?"
>She flapped her wings once or twice nervously
>"Well, I was always so busy training before hand, I didn't really have time for dating or formal events, not that I really enjoy formal events to begin with."
>She removed the dress from her bags, looking at it
>"And after I got booted from the academy and I stopped training, I thought it might be useful to put myself out there, ya know? Find a nice guy, and dazzle him with this!"
>She held out a portion of it
>Honestly, it looked fairly cheap
>Certainly nothing like Rarity could create for an event as important as the The Grand Galloping Gala
>You'd rather die than tell her that though
>It was various shades of gold, with the end of the dress fading into a white trim
>She looked up
>"But hey, I got you right? It's fine, really."
>She folded the dress, placing it back into one of her bags

I bet a strong flier like Lightning Dust would give amazing winghugs.

>How could you not?
"Do you want to try it on?"
>Her faced scrunched for a brief moment before she blushed slightly more than before
"Oh come on, you just said you wanted to look pretty every once in a while, and you've never worn it! It's just the two of us. No more ponies are gonna burst through the door and yell at me. At least, I hope so."
>She brought the dress back out of her bag and looked at it longingly
"Please?"
>She rolled her eyes
>"Alright, alright, jeez! I'll put it on."
>She thought for a moment
>"Hey, I got an idea!"
>Oh no
>"You should dress up for me as well! There's gotta be something you can do. We can come out of our rooms at the same time and surprise each other!"
>How cliché
"Lightning Dust, that is so lame."
>It was no use, she was fired up
>She had a big grin on her face, and her wings were flapping excitedly
>"Too late!"
>Perhaps at a speed that is too much for indoors, she zoomed off to the bathroom in between your room and the empty one
>"The door slammed and clicked
>You could hear her voice from the other side
>"And give me a while, won't you? I wanna do my mane!"
>Where is the Lightning Dust you know, and who is this mare that has replaced her?
>You sighed, letting out an exasperated groan as you reluctantly made your way to your room
>There was no way you had anything that could be considered formal
>Come to think of it, you weren't sure if you had ever dressed up in your time in Equestria
>Well that's kind of depressing
>An idea popped into your head, causing you to move to your closet and surf through your clothes with rapidity
>You remembered that you still had your dress blues from your graduation at the academy
>And unfortunately, you also remember the hell you went through to get them
>Everything you owned had to be tailor made due to your unique physique, and the officers had a hell of a time deciding on what best matched the pony version of it
>>
>>30121640

>You found the outfit, removing it gently from it's hanger before studying it more closely
>You couldn't help but feel a little nostalgic over it
>Even though you have really done nothing impressive with your training
>Whatever
>Fitting into the outfit took more time than you remember
>This thing was a god damned pain
>You felt like you spent the better part of your life finessing the buttons into place
>It felt tighter than you remember
>You went ahead and wrote that concern off has muscle gain despite great evidence of another explanation
>You took a minute to fix your hair
>You should really get this trimmed
>They made you cut it short while training so that the plate helmets you wore would fit properly
>Maybe you had gotten a little drunk on the freedom of not having to worry about that anymore
>You flattened out the creases on your suit
>You looked pretty good!
>Taking note of the time, you now realized that it had been about a little over ten minutes
>You poked your head outside your door
>Lightning Dust was nowhere in sight
>Guess that only meant one thing
>You knocked on the bathroom door
>"Dust? You in there?"
>"I said give me a bit, remember?!"
"Right, sorry!"
>You resigned to your ever-present couch
>You really needed to add a little something to the place
>About another twenty minutes passed before you heard her voice once more
>"Okay, I'm ready!"
>You were suddenly rather nervous
>Sure, the dress was cheap and all, but you would wager that she would be mind-blowing versus your rather sad form
>Your mind drifted to the thought you had earlier
>About Lightning Dust being woefully out of your league
>You really couldn't wait to start this training thing and wrangle some self-esteem
>"Are you behind a door?"
>Shit
"Uh, one second!"
>You placed yourself behind your bedroom door
>You felt rather ridiculous
>Yet you couldn't wipe this dumb grin off your face

They do it to everyone's waifu, famalamadingdong.

Season 1 Twilight Snarkle, hilarious, perceptive, sarcastic, gets wings and turns into a neurotic gushy Disney Princess

S1E2 Woona the Woobie gets rewritten as paranoid raging cunt with no indoor voice, and then disappears entirely.

Celestia's the calculating chessmistress who arranged all of Twilight Sparkle's adventures as a series of tests, and made sure behind the scenes that everything would go right every time--that Luna would be rescued and redeemed from her evil Nightmare Moon alter ego, right? Nope! Turns out that was all dumb luck, and she really doesn't do much other than eat cake and fret all day, usually about the wrong things--fretting about Twilight Sparkle moving to Ponyville when she SHOULD have been worried about Nightmare Moon's impending return and the possible magical Ragnarok and Fimbulwinter that could have killed all life on the planet. Well, at least she's a super-powerful goddess who moves the sun, right? Nope, she got one-shotted by a Giger knockoff bug.

How about Queen Chrysalis. She's oddly attractive, strong-willed, single-mindedly determined, even if she's in opposition to more sympathetic characters. She must be a genius with an awesome plan, right? Nope, she's going to force ponies to love her. How the fuck does that work, exactly? If you grab the next person you see and start throttling him and say "love me or else" that's gonna improve his opinion of you and maybe even make him love you, right? Because that's how love and basic psychology work, right? Who even wrote that?

And that's even before the Mane 6 got hustled offstage of their own show by Starlight Poochie, just like Bernie Sanders got run off his own stage by Black Lives Matter hooligans, and it's now the Poochie and Friends Show.

It's almost like they're doing this to us deliberately.
>>
>>30123700
>It's almost like they're doing this to us deliberately.
I think it's more an issue of them not having an auteur with a coherent vision of how things ought to be and a strong guiding hand to keep the show's trains running on time.
Different writers have their own interpretations of the characters and setting, and without someone with the authority to veto terrible ideas like S5's radical reinterpretation of how Cutie Marks work, the show becomes a free-for-all where continuity is established by whoever stakes a claim first.

>You slammed open the door to your bedroom
>The bathroom door was still closed
>You were bitterly confused
>You heard her voice from within
>"Why did you open the door?"
>What? Why wouldn't you?
"You said you were going to count to three!"
>"Yeah! One, two, three, GO."
>She emphasized the last word
"You didn't specifiy that!"
>"Because everyone knows that, idiot!"
>Are you actually shouting to a pony on the other side of a door about this
"But you're supposed to-!"
>"Just walk back in your room and do it again!"
"Fine!"
>You walked back into your room, assuming the position you held moments ago
>You maintained that she should have specified, but that was an argument for later
>"Okay, one more time. I'm gonna count to three!"
"You mean you're gonna count to 'go'."
>"Why are you being like this?"
>You couldn't help but laugh at the absurdity of this
"Why are YOU being like this?"
>You could hear her own laughter between the two doors, before she shouted
>"JUST GO!"
>You both slammed open your doors simultaneously
>Lightning Dust was floating gently in the air, making herself eye level with you
>Despite what you had thought about the dress earlier, she looked stunning
>She did a light twirl in the air before dropping to her hooves on the ground
>The varying layers of gold accented by her mane danced hypnotically with the light before her landing
>It was sleeveless, with a V shape across her chest
>But you supposed that doesn't really matter for ponies other than style, huh?
>Her traditionally swept back mane had a large portion of it pulled forward, with the hair being swept to the side, just a small portion of it covering one of her eyes
>You supposed it wasn't coincidence that it was the black one
>>
>>30131345

>Her hair lacked the general spiked-front, with the rest of her going back down her neck
>Her mane gave her a gentler appearance, as opposed to the usual tough look she maintained
>You probably preferred her old mane style, and she clearly hadn't practiced with this one
>Although, it was likely she hadn't practiced doing her mane at all in a very long time
>Perhaps you were over analyzing, but you could have sworn she was wearing the slightest bit of make-up
>Mascara, maybe?
>An hour ago you would have said that hell would freeze over before Lightning Dust put on the slightest bit of make-up
>Even if it lacked proper execution in reality, you could tell she was incredibly excited with the result
>And you know what?
>She was beautiful
>"You um... you look really cute."
>You had completely forgotten that this was not a one-sided thing
>She was looking at you the whole time you were taking her in
>You suddenly became very aware of your posture and overall demeanor
>She giggled as she noticed you readjust
"Dust, you look absolutely amazing."
>She smiled, and her eyes met the floor
>She spoke surprisingly quiet
>"Thank you, Anon."
"You've never worn that dress before right? Well, I'm glad! If had, I probably wouldn't have met you while you were single."
>She blushed
>You could tell that she was not used to this at all, but that she was definitely having fun
>"No. Come to think of it, I can't remember the last time I really did anything like this."
>She flew in the air, over to you
>"You have no idea how nervous I was in there. Looking in the mirror at this stupid fucking bruise, trying to get the dress on just right, trying to fix my damn mane which I feel like doesn't really look that good..."
>She continued
>"...And on top of that you look really nice in your uniform, and I feel like-"
>You put your arms around her and pulled her into a kiss
>She flapped her wings in surprise, but shortly thereafter, she used them to pull you two closer in your embrace

Not him, not a lawyer, and I haven't seen that specific scene, so take this with a grain of salt (or the whole carton).

If I understood him correctly, he was saying that while Lightning Dust's behavior in that scene was inappropriate it did not, in his opinion, legally rise to the level of "assault" under the laws of any state or commonwealth with which he is familiar.

Under US law--well, there are 50 states in the US, all theoretically sovereign nations that share a free trade zone and a centrally minted currency, and it's an oversimplification to say that this is sort of like nation states in the EU, but maybe that's a starting point for thinking about the concept--yelling at you, running quickly near you, may be obnoxious, and it may even get you arrested for "disorderly conduct" if you do it in front of the cops after the cops ask you to stop. But it isn't assault. If I touch you without permission--if I shove you, kick you, try to drag you, THEN, under the law (and remember there are 50 states with varying laws and details can vary), THEN it becomes "assault." And if I do this with the intention to harm you, and it's unprovoked, not happening in the middle of a fight--well, let's say I kick you, trip you, or punch you, or try to push you down stairs. Then in most states the charge may be "assault and battery" and if I pick up a stick or a brick and try to hit you with it it may become "aggravated assault," "assault with a deadly weapon," or even, depending on what the witnesses say, what kind of mood the city prosecutor's office is in, and the exact details of the law, the charge could even be "attempted murder."

Again: I'm not a lawyer, I've just read a lot of stuff. I may be wrong in some details. But I think this is the gist of it: Lightning Dust's behavior in that scene was bad behavior but not ILLEGAL bad behavior and would (probably) not get her arrested or charged, at least in the US.
>>
>>30131390
>angry enough for a multi-post rant
>over the mistreatment of a villain-of-the-week by the show's first really bad writer
Seems like an inexplicable level of anger to me.
I mean, I love Lightning Dust and all (because she's S1 Rainbow Dash), but we're talking about a pony with a total of maybe five minutes of screentime in an episode written by the woman who brought us The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well.
Expecting reasonable behavior and good morals in a Merriwether Williams episode is setting yourself up for disappointment, especially when it comes to punishments meted out to villains who, due to the nature of the show, more often than not have done nothing wrong.

>Yes, but in Magic Duel, something that painted her in a much worse light, it was all her decision, even if she did show remorse at the end of the episode where she for some reason got 0 punishment for what she did.
She did it as revenge for being treated so badly by the mane 6 before.

Is it just me or does it seem a bit weird that Spitfire and Fleetfoot were fillies at the same time as Rainbow Dash and yet seemingly have been wonderbolts for years before her?
Especially Spitfire, who is the leader.
Even if she's a few years older than RD, it seems weird that she's able to become the leader of the wonderbolts before RD even gets into the academy.
>>
>>30135118
I remember somebody saying that RD was the only junior on the pic.
>>
>>30135157
Yeah, but even so she can't be more than a few years younger than the others at most.
>>
>>30135118
>Even if she's a few years older than RD, it seems weird that she's able to become the leader of the wonderbolts before RD even gets into the academy.

Maybe she's just that good.

The show has been playing with audience expectations like that. Rainbow Dash was the best there is by a very long shot, the first ever to do a sonic rainboom. No, wait.

Twilight Sparkle is the one-in-a-generation mutant freak powerhouse unicorn who astonishes the Princesses by doing the impossible over and over again at an age when most fillies haven't learned to read or not to eat the paste yet, through a combination of terrifying intelligence, willpower, and insane incomprehensible magical raw brute force, a living magical atomic bomb who rivals millenia-old alicorn princesses for knowledge of magic and sheer raw power. And then we meet Sunset Shimmer. And Starlight Glimmer. And Moondancer. All of whom are around the same age and seem to be Purpledrank's equals at the very least... because a writer decided the plot called for it. And so on.
>>
>>30135216
I guess she could be some sort of flying prodigy and just ascended the ranks super quickly.

>And Moondancer
Has Moondancer ever been shown to have any exceptional magical talent?
>>
>>30135216
>The show has been undermining its own mythology like that.
ftfy
Power creep is a cheap ass-pull for writers who can't come up with any way to create drama besides "more".
It's nearly always a sign of an IP's decline.

>She pulled away from you, and you opened your eyes to find her warm smile once again
>You turned and noticed that the sun had finally set to make way for Luna's night
>You realized just how tired you were
>The night before you had slept with your back to a tree
>Not the greatest night of sleep you've ever had
>You looked back to the pegasus
"We should get some sleep, I don't know about you, but I got nothing out of last night. Not to mention I've been sore all day. There's nothing comfy about the forest."
>Lightning Dust shook her head, roughing up her mane so that it began to resemble it's natural style
>"Good, I was getting sick of this look anyway."
>She looked down at the dress
>"I feel pretty and all, but it's just not really my thing."
>The two of you shared a laugh and agreed to part ways for a moment to change into something more comfortable
>you threw off your regal clothing, piling it in the corner of your room to be hung up at a later date
>You thought a second about how the suit would look horrific after not being hung up properly
>You shrugged
>You were too tired to care
>You threw on a shirt and some sweat pants before exiting back into the hallway to meet Lightning Dust
>You looked over to her and couldn't help but be a little embarrassed
>Lightning Dust saw your expression and raised an eyebrow
>"Is something wrong?"
"It's just, I saw you in a dress a moment ago and now you're not wearing anything. I know that's standard fare for ponies but humans wear clothes all the time. It's still hard to get used to, that's all. Well, when they're hot anyway."
>She giggled
"This sounds like only an advantage for me. That being said, I'll be right back!"
>She zoomed into your room and closed the door behind her
"Hey! What are you doing?"
>Before you had time to manage to say anything else, Lightning Dust came back out, with one of your shirts draped over her
>>
>>30140720

>It didn't fit her at all, draping well past her hips
>She looked down at it, straightening herself in the air to get a good look at the full length
>"Ha! Look at me, I'm wearing my coltfriend's shirt! Can't say I've ever done this."
>She attempted to fix one of the sleeves that kept falling past her shoulder before giving up
>"This is pretty comfy. I get why it's a thing. And it's a little sexy, don't ya think?"
>She twisted to the side and pulled up part of the shirt, revealing her cutie mark
>She gazed from her cutie mark to you, her half-lidded eyes taunting you
>Somehow, this was far more lewd than her just being naked all of the time
>She giggled
>"Don't faint on me now! So where am I sleeping?"
>Perhaps now more than ever, you wanted to invite her to your own bed
>You did your best to compose yourself
>Don't creep her out, Anon
>Or are you making yourself look horrifically oblivious, by not inviting her?
>Why must you be so lame?
"I uh..."
>"Oh! These must be for me! I didn't even notice."
>She zoomed over to the couch, where you had placed the pillow and blanket you found earlier
>"Aw, it's even the color of my coat!"
>It sounded almost mocking as she grabbed the pillow with both forelegs and hugged it tight
"I just thought you might like it or something."
>Smooth
>She flew up to your face and kissed you quickly on the cheek
>"It's cute. Thank you."
>She laid down on the couch and slipped under the pink blanket
>She sighed
>"This thing is super comfy. Definitely beats the forest!"
>It's true, your couch was awesome
>Which is largely why you were upset she broke it earlier
>"So why do you have a pink blanket anyway?"
>You rolled your eyes as you remembered
"It's left over from an ex."
>Lightning Dust threw one hoof in the air triumphantly
>"I win! I'd bet I'm hotter too!"
>You chuckled
>You enjoyed her company so much
>>
>>30140730

"Yes, Dust. Yes, you are. Do you need anything before I go pass out?"
>Lightning Dust yawned
>"Nah, I'm good! I'll see you in the morning, Anon. Good night!"
>You bid her good night and made your way to your room
>She called out to you
>"Sleep well okay? We got a big day ahead of us tomorrow!"
>You closed the door before flopping onto your bed, swiveling your head to one side as to not suffocate yourself
>You spent the better part of the next hour with your mind wandering
>What an insanely wild two days
>Your thoughts drifted to Rainbow Dash
>And how you hit her
>You were so disappointed in yourself
>But at the same time, you couldn't help but be a little proud
>Dust looked fairly helpless before you decked her
>As if she really needed your help though
>You'd bet that as soon as Dust got her act together again, she'd realize how much better she could do than you and leave
>...
>Then what would you do?
>It's been 48 hours and you already can't imagine living without her
>Oh no, you're in love aren't you?
>"Anon? Are you awake?"
>You hadn't even noticed her enter
"Yeah. Yeah I'm awake."
>She crept in, one hoof gripping the blue-green pillow
>"I... I was thinking about last night. When we were in the woods."
>She had your attention
>"When I woke up, I was in your lap. You had held me all night. You made sure I was alright."
>You remembered this well
>She laughed nervously
>"I guess the couch doesn't beat the forest in every way."
>You smiled
"You want to sleep in here?"
>She nodded
>"I-If that's alright with you."
>Abso-fucking-lutely
>She set down the pillow, crawling into the bed and sighing as your arm draped around her
>She scooted even closer, nuzzling her head into your chest
>Her eyes fell closed as you stroked her gold mane gently
>Her warmth against yours gave you a feeling of safety and comfort you hadn't known before
>You kissed her gently on the forehead
"Good night, Dust."
>"Good night, Anon"
>She smiled
>Maybe she wouldn't leave you

>"Are you sure that happened?"
"Oh, I'm sure. It was pretty insane to see you catch up to me."
