This story is a sequel to Fire & Rain


To say that the Wonderbolt's last trip to Manehatten was eventful would be an understatement. Spitfire broke her wing, met Rainbow Dash, dated Rainbow Dash, and a planned thunderstorm went out of control landing many ponies in the hospital. Now with Spitfire getting "promoted" to command of the Wonderbolt's Academy and Rainbow Dash on the mend from her own injuries, the two will learn just how much life can still throw at them.

Meanwhile, Soarin and Rapidfire must come to grips with their new roles as leaders of the Wonderbolts. Soarin doesn't know if he's up to the task, and Rapidfire doesn't know if he even wants to stay. All these trials and more await them further on up the road...

FINALLY!

It arrives!!!!!

I came all the way to Chicago to find you, but you made it with an hour and a half to spare. Looks like I won't need these thumbscrews. :pinkiehappy:

Sucker, I don't live in Chicago :trollestia:

Yes! You had me waiting!:pinkiehappy:

And of course...

You start with a bang. Fired, huh?

The Element of Loyalty got fired? That just seems like a bad idea...

“You learn a thing or two when you’re a single parent,”

I bet.

FINALLY!!!

Why didn't I get the email for this... :fluttershysad:

There ain't no rest for the wicked.

Been waiting forever for this!!! I am so happy it's finally here! And it is off to an awesome start. I can't wait for the continuations! :twilightsmile:

I love you <3 In CASE you haven't heard my opinion already, I say this has to be one of the better 'ships' out there, with a little mix of comedy and a whole lot of heart, I can safely say if this were a series I would buy it in a heartbeat. I'm not the sort of critic to say nice things, but it PAINED me to see Fire and Rain end, and I absolutely loved the first one and have read it upwards of four times. It's well paced, well written, clever, though a little cliche at times... but other than that it's made my 'Best Romance fics' list and is currently at the top of it.

Shit's about to get real. So very real.

Finally, this story is going to be awesome.

You come out of the gates swinging I see. Looking forward to more!:rainbowdetermined2:

BTW, will you try and update once a week like F+R, or will you be pacing yourself easier?

3673890 This is, of course, a misquote, from the 8i8le of all pl8ces.

"No rest for the wicked."
Probably a corruption of Isaiah 57:21 "There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked."

The more you know...

:flutterrage: MOAR! :fluttershyouch: I mean... if your ok with it....

Man it feels great to be reading this again!

And poor Rainbow, can't she ever get a break? Her boss must be a jerk.

[youtube=W2fQ4d89jXc] 'nough said

Her bosses pulled this on her after the accident? Dick move.

it has ARRIVED!! tempted to call in sick!:rainbowlaugh:

Ohmygosh ohmygosh ohmygosh ohmygoshohmygoshohmygosh it's here! Yes! :yay:

*gets to the end of the chapter*

You son of a...


Well played.

3674220 that's how the game is played sadly. I got fired from a company fer spraining my ankle and filing workmans comp. It's all about the dollars

On a side note

Yay! Fire and Rain was the highlight of my Mondays during my first year at Uni! Looking forward to another great story!

Yay a sequel:heart:

Fire and Rain was the shit!:yay:

I just started reading the prequel three days ago and now a sequel?
My timing couldn't be better.:rainbowdetermined2:

This was good and I especially like the issues Spitfire is having as a result of what happened (it looks like it could very well be the precursor to PTSD), but the event chain has me scratching my head. It makes no sense at all that the rest of the girls did not come over some time before this because there is no way they would not have found out about it within a week of the accident and they would have dropped everything to come as soon as they heard the news even if Celestia personally told them Rainbow was recovering fine. I feel like the coming confrontation with them should have happened a few weeks earlier in Manehatten, although if you really wanted it to be in Ponyville for some reason you could have mentioned a short visit earlier and explicitly stated that Spitfire was not there to avoid dealing with it then.

Also, do you have any further plans for the media ponies and Wonderbolts? I really liked what you did with Quick Snap, but it is starting to look like you are going to be leaving him behind along with the other characters you have established which would be kind of unfortunate.

3674545 If memory serves, there were two major safety violations (sitting on a thunderhead, untrained pony on site) that led to the accident which were both Rainbow's responsibility because she was in charge, on site, and committing one of them herself. That is more than enough reason to fire her even without the accident, so it is not really surprising she lost her job given what happened.

You know, if I didn't have a sore throat, I probably would have awoken my family with a "FUCK YEAH, Ruirik!"

3674039 Be that as it may, JATL was quoting a song.

haven read the chapter yet but.... best christmas gift ever! YAY!!!

3675148 true enough. I wasn't surprised she was fired, surprised it took so long though

“... I’ve been fired…”

Well.... someone just ruined his own day^^ That will be fun^^

Sequel of an amazing story... Instafaved and liked... one in the morning... giant cup of tea... Let's do this...:rainbowdetermined2:

yes, yes YES
:rainbowhuh:
Rainbows fired no?

3675354
Your profile pic does not help

1:42 in the morning on xmas eve, got my giant coffee mug, i'm going in!

3675409 HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! I swear I didnt even notice how well that went together! LOL! Day = made^^ :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

“Surprise me,” Rapid shrugged.
Rainbow stared at Rapidfire in horror.
“What?” he asked, noticing her look.
Rainbow shook her head slowly. “You poor dumb bastard.”

:facehoof: Oh Rapidfire, you obviously didn't learn from last time when Arcus made you drink the diabetes in a glass...

...
On a more mischievous note, I don't feel sorry for him one bit!

Instafav now read

Christmas came early for me 2 of my fave fics (series in this case) have been updated with more coming in the next 24 hours. V

BUCK YEA

You start with a bang. Fired, huh?
The Element of Loyalty got fired? That just seems like a bad idea...

I totally agree with you there Skeeter

Huzzah! I've been waiting for this!

So it continues. Very nice! But I will hold my reservations on giving a like. That must be earned. Anyway... can't wait to see more.

3673850 Very bad idea... She got fired while recovering from a work related accident, that wasn't her fault, that caused her a lot of health issues. :facehoof:

Yay! it has finally arrived I will read it later no time now and then I will add my critique to it . WOOT!!!!! :yay::scootangel::pinkiesmile::pinkiehappy::twilightsheepish::heart:

Somepony is going to get a lawsuit on their hooves... and of course, I am referring to the Weather Team who had the audacity to fire Rainbow Dash for doing her buckin' job while suffering a near-fatal injury from work! :twilightangry2:

On a side note, great comedy from Soarin, Rapidfire, and Bifrost! Especially from the return of the sweet-inducing concoction!

This really is a nice surprise to see a sequel to one of the biggest stories in Fimfiction.net! Looking forward for what's to come in the next chapter!

Liked, faved, and awesome start to a sequel to an equally awesome ship. keep going, good sir.

It begins... Again...

Glad to finally read this, you're off to a great start!

Nice to see you back buddy, Now I must log on more often thanks to you! :D

I can mention one more thing that Rapid and Soarin must come to terms with... :trollestia:
