Hey guys, remember back when Rainbow Dash nearly revoked her dreams of becoming a Wonderbolt because her philosophy was supposedly nothing like theirs?
Well, what if instead of joining the Wonderbolts, Rainbow could form her own elite flying squad, in which she grants anyone the chance to prove worthiness, train hard, be masters of the weather as a bonus, and never leave an ailing member behind no matter what? And they could be called... the Rainbolts!
That would be fucking sweet! But instead, we get the episode "Rainbow Falls".
I made this meme to address those stupid, stupid bronies. In fact, I happen to like the name 'Bulk Biceps' myself.
- Sprinkle Medley: I hear they're flying for Cloudsdale.
- Orange Swirl: Then Cloudsdale will definitely qualify. They're the best flyers ever.
- Twilight Sparkle: Some ponies do what?
- Rainbow Dash: [sighs] Have a better chance of qualifying and going to the Equestria Games than others.
...gets distracted by cheerleaders, causing him to clip his wing and take a nasty fall, but is saved by Rainbow Dash. So Soarin' is taken to the hospital video to recuperate...
With that said, it becomes clear to Rainbow where her loyalties truly lie... with some help from that rainbow spark of course.
So Soarin' is allowed back on the team because even the best of the best have their flaws, Rainbow is commended for calling out the blunder-bolts, no one gets punished (Seriously, the officials couldn't just disqualify Cloudsdale for dishonor? This was kind of a very big deal here, you know.), and Ponyville's aerial relay team qualifies for the Equestria Games by a fraction of a second. And let's not forget that Rainbow obtains her key for all her effort and trouble. Two down, four to go.
...you can thank one of my college instructors, da Wiener, for teaching me otherwise, that even dropping the ball once can cost you everything. Come-bucket...
I guess this means I can relate to Seto Kaiba from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series. In the same way that Kaiba duels solely to prove that he's the best duelist in the world and deserves to be champion, I do my work to prove that I can have a spot in this world. ...And also because I enjoy my work, but I still want to prove myself even more. Again, blame that instructor I mentioned for that.
Nevertheless, I am ending this review on this unhappy note.
