We writers do not speak. We do not hear. We have no songs. We have no pictures. We only have scripture. From words we bring images. From words we bring emotion. From words we bring life.

This story is a sequel to Flying Sky-High

So much has happened in the past year. Friends have been made, battles have been fought, and love has bloomed. Now at long last, Rainbow Dash has the chance of a lifetime: a chance to become a Wonderbolt and instantly be part of an elite squad. However, one of the key judges for the tryout is none other than her love: Soarin. He is bound by his profession to be fair and honest in his selection. Will their relationship give Dash an edge in the tryouts? Or will it strike her down before she even gets there?

Also what of the dark magic within Soarin? He's kept quiet about it for a while, but not all is as well as he lets on.

And what of the Shadowbolts? They scattered after the battle with Nightshade. Surely they didn't just disappear.

A story of remaining strong in the face of harsh challenges. Life and love can be tough, but strong hearts always find a way to prevail.

Edited by: Kestrel (and on occasion: Lucky424)

This Fic's length is a bit intimidating, but it is broken into four parts, each of which could be considered their own stories with clear beginnings and conclusions. I decided to keep it all together because it was how my outline was structured (aka i completely underestimated the length).

This is not a Gurren Lagann Crossover. The title was a coincidence. (But said coincidence has led to many references and characters that parody the anime)

With an editor, huh? Had to take my fun away! Oh well, time to read!


haha feel free to still point out anything you see :rainbowkiss:

Man, so much came up that I haven't even finished the FIRST story in this series. But I applaud you for continuing it! I just haven't had much time because I write a lot myself.


No worries my brother, i've been meaning to read your Soarindash as well. I've also been busy writing and have only read the first chapter, but i'll get there:twilightblush:

And thank you :rainbowkiss:

Yay... more SoarinDash. Yes, that is meant sarcastically, and also not at the same time. Honestly, I wanted to see more ThunderJack, but that can come later.

Firstly, Luna? So, Celestia is still fuck knows where, doing fuck knows what?

Secondly, cover art. Shadwbolts are going to try out for Wonderbolts. Calling it now, Dash doesn't get the part, Soarin and Descent get into a fight again. Soarin almost kills Descent as he doesn't have the crystals to help.

Thirdly, Applejack. Stop being a bitch. Oh no, I lost at hoof wrestling!! Yes, because it's not like there are any important things, like strange ponies moving in the shadows of Equestria, doing strange thing to ponies for unknown reasons. Silly background pony, get back in the background.


Secondly, nope, nope, and nope :raritywink: (except for one)

Nice try but I've already marked my cliches and obvious plots :pinkiehappy: I've got more than a few new ideas up my sleeve :scootangel:

Also quite a few loose ends will be answered and don't worry, thunderjack is on my to do list :eeyup:

>>4492361 Haha yeah. We're probably in the same situation. But you're more dedicated than I am :rainbowlaugh:

I opened fimfic on my phone and this was the first thing I saw! :rainbowkiss:

Now, to read! :yay:


Oh and Kestrel kinda just started editing my stuff in full one day, I didn't even ask. But he's been a great help:pinkiesmile: like I said, I still appreciate any errors being snuffed out I haven't forgotten how helpful you've been in the past :rainbowkiss:

"I’m not hyper enough for this shit!"

I think I just died. :rainbowlaugh:

"Pronking"?  That's a new one on me.  :pinkiegasp:

>>4492478 Ah, I was just joking! I've seen the size of our arms, fuck getting near them!

>>4492368 I don't understand why everyone's asking where Celestia is. Isn't it obvious? At the end of the first story in the SoarinDash arc she did that crazy black magic spell thingamajiggy shishkabob stuff to get Soarin better and she herself said she would be out of commission for a very long time.

And also...


OH LOOK!! A HOLE IN YOUR ROOF!!! (I'm never going to get tired of saying that.)


I think it was invented on 4chan to describe the noise she makes when she bounces, I went with it :rainbowlaugh:


Pinkie on sugar makes for instant comedy :pinkiecrazy:


I thought that was a new one next to the other 18 holes :rainbowlaugh:


Did I at all influence the whargarble? :twilightsheepish:



(Wait how did that saying go...?)


>>4492545 I can't stop laughing at that!!! XDDDD Make it staph, my sides and cheeks are hurting!!!!!


Yes you did actually :rainbowkiss: I was writing that scene when you commented on the blog post. I had to include it:rainbowlaugh:

Part 3!

You have no idea how happy I am that this is continuing on!

My level of happiness is one that cannot be put into a coherent set of words


Thank you and continue forth please!

-Dawning Dusk


Just wait till I get To Surprise later :pinkiecrazy:


The next part of the story.  Yeah. I  can't wait for the next chapter.  Good job and best of luck.


I shall :eeyup: thank you for continued support :rainbowkiss:

*reads title*



Your drill will be the one to pierce the heavens! Just who the hell do you think I am?!:rainbowdetermined2:

(It was actually unintentional, but you are the second to point it out:rainbowlaugh:)


Actually if you look closely, I have the quote "who the hell do you think I am" used once in both prequels. I'll have to find a place to use it in this one too :rainbowwild:

DanteRevolution.exe has crashed from excitement overload. please reboot. *reboots* BUCK YEAH!:pinkiehappy::yay: I CAN'T WAIT FOR MORE! THIS. just made my day.

HOLD THE PRESS! Nevermind the fact that I need to start packing for a trip, there's a new SoarinDash!


Good to have you along for the ride once again :rainbowkiss:

And so it begins... for the 3rd time :)

>>4492885 Ehh, I always wait until pretty much the night before my plane leaves, anyway. But, after some huge laughs, a few guesses, and me having an awkward silence with myself mutiple times, I can say this is gonna be GUUUUD! :pinkiehappy:

>>4492885 Procrastination problems. They always happen.

>>4492968 Oh, I don't have expectations. Just problems. :pinkiecrazy:

Heh heh, just kidding...


This chapter. I like it.

More. *slams three bags full of bits onto the table*


*slams three more* How fast can you get it done? :rainbowhuh:


The plan is an update every 2-3 days :rainbowdetermined2:

>>4493018 Oh, I'm not sad. But I do appreciate you worrying of my brain activity and hormones. :twilightsmile: Ah, *looks off into sunset* that feeling of positive brain.. juice.. stuff.. yeah, I'll stop. I can see why I'm not that good in bio. :rainbowlaugh:

I'm glad this one's already shopping up to be popular :twilightsmile: You sounded so excited when you sent it to me... I made sure it was done before the night was out. :twilightblush:


I appreciate your quick work:rainbowkiss:

Nothing gets me excited like Soarindash:rainbowdetermined2:


Sounds good. *slams five more bags of bits down* Enjoy. Buy a castle or something.
