When Blitz gets a ticket to a Wonderbolts performance for his birthday, he is ecstatic. Unfortunately, he learns they are not all they're cracked up to be when meeting them backstage.

After seeing the colt's despair from being ignored by his lifelong heroes, Rainbow Dash befriends Blitz. But being the Element of Loyalty, she becomes split between a heartbroken colt and her own commitment to her life's dream. Will she make the right choice?More Less
Being the captain of Equestria's most renowned aerobatics team is a stressful, and sometimes thankless, job. Her joints ache; her muscles are taut; her mind reels from the sheer responsibility. But, like any professional, Spitfire takes it all in stride with a grin.
That is, until a certain rainbow-maned mare started mouthing off. Being accused of 'Camera Hogging' was the final straw. Spitfire finally lost her temper, dumping every ounce of that responsibility on an unwitting rookie and leaving for a single day of respite.
This story details her day of (mostly) relaxation.
(A/N: Spitfire's Day Off is a side-story to Blitz, taking place parallel to "A Very Long Day" chapter arc.)
