I dream of a man whose hopes never end.


Competing for a chance to hang out with the Wonderbolts during their training, Rainbow Dash finds herself in yet another competition. Only this time, things go wrong—very wrong. In the end, Rainbow Dash winds up so seriously injured that she may never fly again.

This aftermath leaves her closest friends scrambling for answers and solutions, but both seem to be elusive. Can they find a way to heal Rainbow Dash, or will she be condemned to the life of an earth pony?

I should be writing.... but I guess I can keep reading.

Aaaaaaannnnnndddd tracking. It'll be great to see where this story goes! Good luck, my friend! :twilightsheepish:

Woo! Party time! :rainbowwild:

Anyone else see :pinkiecrazy: in our near future?

I'm kind of surprised that we haven't seen anything with Lightning Dust yet. I'm also surprised that word back to any of the Main 6 yet, especially as it's been a week since the incident.

Fluttershy sighed at Dash's bullheadedness.

Sounds like Rainbow Dash...

"Rainbow Dash is gone!"

Eeyup! There's Rainbow! :rainbowdetermined2:

Stubborn Dash to the rescue...? :rainbowdetermined2:

Woo! An update! :rainbowkiss:
Is it sad I connected this:

"Ah don't know what yah are or what yah want, but Ah ain't about to let yah hurt nopony!"

With 'Taken'?:rainbowhuh:

*imagines Applejack going to Prance to save Apple Bloom* :facehoof:

That's nice of the dust devil. No dress will make Rainbow happy though unless it gives her the power of flight.

Almost there... Almost there! :rainbowdetermined2:

Don't you think you should do something about this chapter on FanFiction? Because I don't see it there. Instead, chapter 9 is discharge. And that is where I am following this story from.

Okay, never mind. I forgot to read the authers note on that site.

Perhaps I wasn't entirely clear about all that, and for that I apologize. :pinkiesad2:
The main reason why I omitted this chapter on fanfiction, as opposed to here, is the rating difference. Fanfiction has the K+ rating. Here, however, it's Teen, so I have more flexibility in what I post here.:pinkiesmile:

I'll hopefully get the next chapter edited tomorrow. :twilightsmile:

3752012 At least your publishing at a semi-consistant pace :rainbowlaugh:

Don't plan on it staying that way. My muse is fickle. :facehoof:

If I'm lucky, though, I shall have this story complete before February. Worst-case scenario...well, the worst-case would be that I die in a tragic accident and never finish it, but, barring that, I should definitely have it done by April. :twilightsheepish:

...I hope.

3755508 Yeah I set the limit on my story to be finished by graduation, but if goes at the pace that it went during christmas break (which was none, for some unknown reason) then it won't be finished at all. :twilightangry2:

I certainly know the feeling. I haven't updated my other ongoing story in months. :raritydespair:

Just can't seem to be able to get anything out despite knowing what I want to happen.

It always get worried when I read a fic and Twilight becomes secretive like that...:rainbowhuh:

And that whole shopping scene in the Crystal Empire, I was imagining something going wrong and somepony stealing the cloth :raritydespair:

But all is well, and there's an update :rainbowkiss:

About time we got to see Rainbow again. Oh, and just so you know, I was the one on FanFiction who asked you about posting these on this site, you know, WeirdoWriter. Just saying.

Well, it's all caught up now. If I ever get behind again just poke me with a stick. :derpytongue2:

Guess who just got a follower :D


There, there. She'll be fine...

...probably. :trollestia:

Aw that was an awesome chapter and I'm glad it's not on hiatus anymore because this story is just so amazing! Keep up the fabulous work! :raritystarry:

Applejack rolled her eyes. "Yeah, it'd be nice to have a map. Or a compass."

Applejack, you really should just stop worrying about those useless stuff and focus on getting the dungeon item and the Boss Key.

You know, that reminded me of an episode of M*A*S*H, when Winchester and Klinger were trapped in the middle of nowhere, and they have to save these foreign soldiers. And it turns out they were probably about a 5-10 minute walk away from their camp.


I'm glad I found this story on fimfiction, now I can leave proper comments from an actual account


Good chapter. Twilight's engineering still makes me cringe though.

Loving your work, Keep it up :D

You can always reply to my PM's here you know lol

Am so happy to see this story updated again! :heart:

My apologies again for my silence. Still can't figure out what is wrong. In any case, feel free to PM me (I'm still receiving them) with anything. Just no telling if I'll be able to reply.


It's good to see this story update again. In glad I managed to keep track of this one when I switched to Fimfiction

Just beautiful. The phoenix feathers and the talk with Scootaloo were both excellent twists in the story. It really showed how much Dash's character had grown since the story started. Sad to see the story end, but happy for its conclusion.

Also, glad to have helped. :twilightsmile:

I'm pretty happy about finally finishing it. It took forever, and now it feels like I've accomplished something new. This is the longest completed story I've written to date.


The bits with Scootaloo in the epilogue and the last chapter where pretty good. I originally found this story on fanfiction, but i lost track of it when i switched to fimfiction. I managed to find it again a couple of chapters ago, and i'm glad i found it again.

Rarity, I think you need to keep that cloth and turn it into a small suit for somepony. Think of it, ancient powerful suits


Buck you, Lighting. Shame on you.
