Tired, But Trying (Taking Hope In G5)



It's only a few days to the beginning of the Canterlot Metro Region's annual inter-school competition, the Friendship Games. Some of the Shadowbolts have a peaceful lunch, unaware that they're on the wrong side of a bigger conflict. Two days after that, the Rainbooms learn some alarming news.

Don't let AJ hear that! :rainbowlaugh:

Lemon Zest had already finished her tray and had her chin propped up on both hands, eyes closed and expression relaxed as Sunny Flare gently massaged her shoulders.

I have the urge to draw that...

That was a fabulous fic, and a really new and interesting take on the Shadowbolts! :pinkiehappy: I wish this would happen in canon, but it probably will not. :ajsleepy: Oh well!

That would be fantastic.

Thank you very much!

A nice prelude to the upcoming event, especially the characterization of the antagonists.

Huh. That's interesting.

This is pretty much exactly how I'm envisioning the Shadowbolts' characterizations.

6093328 6093661 Thanks! I'm glad they come across well. :twilightsmile:

I imagined the shadowbolts to have these personalities! Great story :pinkiehappy:

:pinkiehappy: next please! :3

What a great story! I like your snapshots too... I could really picture them. :pinkiehappy:
By the way, Sunny Flate has purple and magenta hair, not purple and indigo.

6107475 Thanks!
Ah, good catch - I'll fix that now. :twilightsmile:

6204810 Well, if it helps I do have a sort of sequel one-shot in the works. :twilightsmile:

6205308 Part of me is tempted to write more, but I have a ton of multi-chapter stories going on as it is. I'm really not sure.

But I'm glad you seem to have liked this, at any rate! :twilightsmile:

It was really interesting, re-reading this after watching the movie proper. I'd say this still holds up, despite the differences from cannon. :)

6514372 I still need to watch the movie proper. :rainbowlaugh::fluttercry:

6517142 Admittedly I've been putting it off, as I have a semi-sequel to this I want to finish writing before I watch it.

I totally understand what you mean.

6518104 Want to avoid idea contamination and all that. :twilightsheepish:

Honestly, now might be a good time for me to work on it.

Yeah, I'll do that.

6514372 I've seen the movie now, and the Shadowbolts in there are definitely rather different from my versions. :rainbowlaugh:

6542613 I was wondering if this was written before you saw the movie. Honestly I sometimes like seeing what people expected of characters. One of my favorite images of Crystal Prep was before the movie came out, and as such it not only has Lightning Dust instead of Indigo Zap, but also has Twilight looking a lot more assertive and cold. http://fav.me/d8uyckg
