Rainbow Dash has invited Scootaloo to watch the Wonderbolts with her. But Scootaloo can't fly, and she is afraid that Rainbow Dash will hate her. She has one week to figure out the basics of flying. Will she be forced to tell Rainbow Dash the truth?

***NOTE:*** Yes, I understand that the beginning seems very similar to the start of "Sleepless in Ponyville," but I wrote this waaaaaay before that episode aired. So no comments about that, please. :)

It could be an acutal episode, it's that good.

I love this fic. LOVE it. Great job.

This plotline has been done pretty often, but... it's just fantastic. Especially when the story is as well done as this one is. Thanks for sharing this.

I love stories where Scootaloo ends up happy.

It's good. I'm not going to go over the top and yell best. But it is certainly good, though much overused.

Me gusta. :pinkiehappy:

My only complaint is that there wasn't a scene where a giant muffin came in with a buster sword and had an epic fight with Discord on the Plane of Death.
But, besides that, this fic is amazing!

Just wanted to say, You don't need to have all Scootaloo, Applebloom, and Sweetie Belle seprate there should be a Cutie Mark Crusaders Icon you click to have all three together it just saves some Room. :P

619892 Thanks for the tip, I'm new here

Your welcome, I'm new here to! I've haven't been on in a while. :L
I'm back now, and im Going to start some random new Series called War-pony or Something. For the hay of it.

Applejack cringed. “Well, my sister always says that everyone develops at a different rate,”
Should be Applebloom

Cute and a joy to read. The little montage was very well done, I could practically hear "Crusaders Go Crusading" during that part. Hope Scootaloo's episode in season 3 is something like this.

608789 I agree; this could easily be an episode from the show itself, which I've never been able to say for an MLP fic before (and I've read at least 2.7 million words of 'em)! Length, pacing and style are all episode-perfect. Of course, I just came here for the Scootadash friendshipping, and got exactly what I wanted there. Bravo! :scootangel::rainbowkiss:

This felt like reading an episode script. It pulled me inside immediately, the descriptions were very fluent and clear, and Scoots' personality was just how I'd imagined it. Scoots was a bit more fragile and emotional than usual, but considering the situation, it worked really well. And the end result? A happy smile on my face and a big d'aww. :twilightsmile:

I only came here after I read your story Letters To Rainbow Dash, and it seems I have several other stories to read from you. Consider me your new stalker. :scootangel:

There aren't any words in my vocabulary that can express how truly cute this little piece of ScootaDash was. Wait... maybe there is one... d'aaaaaw! :heart: Yep, that sums it up! :pinkiehappy:

One of the better flightless Scootaloo stories out there. On a side note, didn't the crusaders go chasing a chicken into the Everfree Forest?

“Scootaloo, what’s wrong?” cried Applebloom.

“I don’t understand,” said Applebloom. “How is that a bad thing? You’ve waited for this sort of thing to happen ever since you met Rainbow Dash!”

Applebloom cringed. “Well, my sister always says that everyone develops at a different rate,”

Apple Bloom

[Actually rather than pointing out every instance of it. Just hit ctrl+F: and search for Applebloom . [minus 4].]

It's a two word name.



Decent ending. Get an upvote.


Was it really a chicken? Or is Elizabeak one of Angel's minions of pure, unrelenting evil? After all that cocatrice looked just like her ... or at least part of him / her / it / ((s)(h))e(it) did.

" Are my wings too small? Is my body too big?"
OMC, Scootaloo is part BEE!!

“You’re not a chicken, Scootaloo,” said Sweetie Belle. “You called us dictionaries, but that doesn’t mean that we’re . . . uh . . . big chunks of words.” She frowned. “That didn’t make any sense, did it?”

:rainbowlaugh:. This was good. Have an upvote:twilightsmile:

Scootaloo can fly on land, but she never gives up on the idea of being able to go into the air herself.
