Rainbow Dash's life long dream finally becomes reality. But when she finds out at what cost, is it still worth it?

Author's notes in first comment. Highly recommend you read those first.

Author's notes:

- This fic was originally written for the Bronystate fanfiction writing competition, where it ended up taking third place. So I guess it's good :twilightsmile: (hey, everyone's got an ego ^^)
- There are more Wonderbolts than depicted in here (for instance, Fleetfoot is absent). We've seen as much as 10 Wonderbolts ("The Best Night Ever" episode), but I've narrowed it down to 6, being the ones we've seen as the judges in the "Sonic Rainboom" episode (except the one at the very end flying off with Rainbow and Soarin'. Don't know who he is, though). The names of those 6, aside the canon ones, were taken from this Wikia page.
- Rated Teen for alcoholism.
- Fic was written before the season 2 finale, so Rainbow still has performed just two Sonic Rainbooms instead of three. It does little to affect the story, though.
- English isn't my mother tongue, so grammar may be off, and descriptions cumbersome and simplistic.
- This fic has been revised to improve it compared to the original version, which was subjected to a limit of 10,000 words. You can find said original version here (but, really, why would you want to do that?).
- There's a reference to Red Vs. Blue in there. Can you find it?

Very well done :rainbowdetermined2:

Wow, I can see why this placed. I certainly liked it (and am obligated to request more, because moar!).:pinkiehappy:
This is my favorite pairing and there need to be more SoarinXDash fics of this length and quality.
I did not find the Red Vs. Blue reference :unsuresweetie:

Wow... That was... intense. And so frakking awesome.

I never really looked at any SoarDash before, but after this I have an appreciation for it. Which means that you've written something really good.

I also like the fact that most of the Wonderbolts have fairly intellectual hobbies, like Spifire, of all ponies, having an appreciation for art and Misty being good at chess.

cUTE they make such a cute couple dont ya think :rainbowkiss:

I LOVED IT!!!:heart: It should have taken first :ajsmug: Keep it up you have a talent for writing:twilightsmile:

Thank all of you SO MUCH for your kind words. Even though there have only been just over 100 views (edit: over 150! 200! 250!! 300? Really?), it means the world to me that whatever crap I come up with is actually liked, and your kind comments, as Pinkie would say, fills my heart up with sunshine, sunshine :pinkiehappy:

Well, the reference didn't come from a Red vs. Blue episode directly, but from a "Public Service Announcement" by the same guys. Link here.

Why thank you :twilightsmile:. I honestly didn't expect it to end up in the top ten, let alone top three! Then again, I don't know how many contestants there were, so for all I know there might have been just 3 contestants :twilightsheepish:

If you (or anyone else) wants to read the winning fic, you can find it here: To Be A Wonderbolt by Avabrony. Show him some love! :yay:

No problem, It was very good. :pinkiehappy: Could you check mine out for me and tell me what you think about it. Your opinion would mean alot to me

Ahhhh ok, now I see it. The line worked great even without getting the reference. :rainbowwild:
This was NOT crap, it was great and I still hold the opinion this should be continued.:pinkiehappy:
