Well, after seeing the bit of RD hate coming from True Order and Dibulla I almost feel a little hesitant to share this other picture of Rainbow Dash I finished a while ago...
Oh screw it here's something I drew.
Rainbow Dash: You Can't Take the Sky From Me:
Yes those are Firefly lyrics.
I wanted this drawing to look... beautiful... and its hard for me to draw beautiful things, I've always considered my usual style to be a little ugly.
What this was meant to be is something like a love letter from Dash to the sky. People argue and joke about what she prefers, mares or stallions, but we all know that Dash's one true love is the sky and no one can take that away from her.
Now if there's one thing the internet has taught me its pointless to try and change someone's opinion about anything so I'm not even going to try and I'm not going to give anyone shit for disliking something I like, but I am going to come to its defense. Lets just avoid any fights, I'm not in the mood to bang my head against anyone else I just want to stick up for my favorite character. You can think what you want because in the end it all comes down to personal taste.
Now in defense of Rainbow Dash:
Where as some people call her a coward because of Read it and Weep I still see the pony who will charge in head first at a manticore or something even bigger to protect the lives of her friends. I still see the pony who gave us some street cred when she handed Starscream's metal ass to him on Death Battle. And I see a loyal friend who in some ways reminds me of the friends who kept me sane over the years.
I would go as far as saying that if it wasn't for RD I wouldn't have even started watching the series. She was the only character who jumped out at me. I saw this confident and carefree character and I was suddenly amazed and even a little jealous. I was a real bastard in High School and I'm not afraid to admit it. I only had a few friends and the ones I did have were a bit like RD, not all of them though. Most of them were more like Fluttershy.
I saw this confident and daring character who wasn't afraid to speak her mind and stand up to anyone and anything and in a weird way it made me want to better myself.
I've read a lot of stuff in the beginning of joining the fandom about people who were bastards like me and this show helped them find a new positive look out on life. Most of the time it was because of a certain character. For me it was RD. She was the type of person (or in this case pony) who made me smile. She had this coolness to her and she got along with all the other characters (even though it did take a while with Pinkie) and she helped me enjoy the other characters more and I started watching the show for them as well as her.
I know it might sound weird to be this attached to a fictional character (maybe as much as it is to really hate one) but I know I'm not the only person who feels this way about one of the characters. I wouldn't call Rainbow Dash a life savor for me, but she did help me get into the series and the series has helped me become a more positive person and I've met a lot of cool people, like you guys.
You can say all you want about RD, but to me she's a blue coated angel.
Edit: .... Son of a bitch that got really sappy.
Also, I just found a Spitfirelicious and I have no idea if its been posted here or not. If it has sorry.
