Oh, if you only knew the plans I have for her in my sequel.

I feel like most "rivals" or antagonists in MLP are quick to develop a totally dedicated following and I'm so confused as to why Lightning Dust is such a forgotten character. She seems to have a terribly small cult following. 5 years later I am still so in love with this pony (though I admit I am probably more in love with my idea of her) and am still fishing around for all the Dusty content I can get.

I do prefer Rainbow Dash but yeah Lightning Dust is pretty cool.

you should be a wonder blot and kick spitfire out

Hey, Lightning Dust here. Yeah I shouldn't have been kicked out. Err Spitfire made ME the lead pony and Rainbow Dash should have been taken down a peg or two. That is why I wanted to be a better flyer than her. Which I AM. Don't you ponies agree? Anyway, Rainbow blamed the whole tornado thing on me. It was SO UNFAIR! She was partly to blame as she agreed to do the tornado during the cloud busting challenge. And how was I meant to know that her friends were coming, huh? Not my fault that Ii was a better flyer than everyone, is it?

Plz like or something if you are fans of me (Lightning Dust) or any of the other Elements of Disharmony,

Yeh. Im gonna write a fanfic. But I'm only going to tell you that I am definately included. One will be what happened after the Academy, and the other, my headcanon ackstory!!! I'll post when I am finished. :rainbowlaugh::rainbowwild::rainbowdetermined2::rainbowdetermined2::rainbowdetermined2::coolphoto::heart:

I have a question: Lightning Dust is one of the main characters in a story I'm writing, but she is not the protagonist (though she is on the good team). Could I still post the story here?

I just want it on record that I also support the "Sadist Dust" headcanon, after reading Cold Lightning.

Both are misunderstood and both are awesome ponies! :trixieshiftleft:

She is an interesting character to me because she pushed her self so hard that it ended up being the reason why she failed. Having balance is important and here was a mare that just focused on winning at any cost. In the end it ended up costing her the one thing she wanted most.

Tough life lesson. Still, she knows how to push her self and I bet she could overcome being kicked out of the academy and still make a WonderBolt one day.


She totally deserved to get kicked out, though. But does she deserve a second chance (and an attitude adjustment)? Most certainly.

She put ponies in danger of dying in a horrible tornado. I don't think that deserves a seconds chance, even if she is my 2nd favorite *pony*. A real military institute would ban her and most likely call the police of she put anyone in danger.

When her badge got ripped off it gave me that hidden lesson of "no second chances, biatch", and that's what I liked about that part.

We're given quantitative evidence that Lightning Dust is by far the superior flier!
As well as quantitative.
And is best overall pony.

I originally though she did, but "Cold Lightning" made me think otherwise

Best pony? Not quite. But I am a HUGE fan of the Wonderbolts Academy episode, and I really liked Lightning Dust's character.

I feel your pain Lightning Dust. You made a mistake but Spitfire shouldn't have kicked you out for it. She should've explained what you did wrong. I just hope your dream will come true some day when you learn to be nicer to others. :pinkiesad2:

Lightning Dust and Trixie are my favorites! :pinkiehappy:

Lightning Dust is my 2nd favorite PONY (Chryssie best everything, best pone for me is Fancy Pants), though I wish authors would write more about she is messed up in the head rather than brood over a depressing past.

Fuck yeah I am!


I find it fun to watch others bitch about me; such is the way of the troll.


Bitching is more fun than you might think.


Damn, no need to be such a little bitch about it.
