Spitfire has a call sign, just like every other Wonderbolt. However, she tries to keep hers a secret, and it's FAR worse than "Rainbow Crash."

Based on season 6, episode 7: "Newbie Dash."

Fair warning: Written in about an hour and a half and with minimal editing.

This is gold! :rainbowlaugh:

Pffffft... Snerk... Bwahahahahah! :rainbowlaugh:
Wonder how the logo looks like.



Glad you liked it. Thanks for checking it out! :rainbowwild:

Jeez, what does the patch for that call sign look like? :rainbowderp:

I'll leave that up to your imagination, but notice that Spitfire's never been seen wearing her jacket. :rainbowlaugh:

I spent a long time trying to figure out what Spitfire's nickname could have been. The best I could come up with in that time was Spit-take.

The one in the story ended up popping into my head shortly after the episode, and I thought, "Oh yeah, that's way worse than 'Rainbow Crash.'" And once I had that, well... I pretty much had to write the fic. :raritywink:

Please write a version of this where her nickname ends up being Spank Flank and I'll leave the rest in the air

Al hail Captain Spitfire, Supreme Commander of Shitstorms. :rainbowlaugh:

Like I said, these stories will be coming in by the droves... :pinkiehappy:

That's a solid name. I'm a fan. Although, honestly, I feel like Spitfire could've twisted it into something badass.

"Hey, Boss, why do they call you Shitfire?"

"Cause I don't take shit from anypony. Now drop and give me twenty!"

Or something.

Damn, you beat me to it.

How about SpitBall, cause she accidentally hits Celestia with one she was aiming at Soarin` :twilightblush:

Good ideas! I knew it had to be something "worse than Rainbow Crash," so I tried to push it a little further.

That would be an awesome follow-up story!

This was freaking amazing! I wish they could have said that in the episode! It would have been the best episode I've ever seen!:rainbowlaugh: which is saying something because I've seen every single episode except for Wendigo Wasteland

"Shitfire" was my first thought, too, and he first thing I did upon watching the ep was to rush here to see if anyone else had the same idea. Great story, though in my headcanon "shitfire's" back story involves a ton of spicy food and a very unfortunate skytrail...

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. And while they can't say things like that on the show, well, that's where fanfics come in. :raritywink:

Thanks, fellstorm! I thought about giving her a similar backstory, too, but I figured I'd leave her with some dignity. :rainbowlaugh:

7199051 Was thinking the same thing :rainbowlaugh:

That's amazing!

:rainbowlaugh: Yup, WAY worse than Crash!

This is my new headcanon.

It'll probably get disproved or replaced with canon later on, but until then...

"Slutfire" was my first thought. I quickly sided with "Shitfire" as it was far more likely (or is it? :trollestia: ).

Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for reading!

Jeez, now I need to write that story, too. Miiiiight need to up the rating on that one. :rainbowlaugh:

I didn't even try to incorporate her name into her nickname when trying to figure it out since Rainbow seemed the only one with a play on her name. Kind of missed this option as a result. I was thinking tamer things like flying diaster, toilet terror, flounder, face plant, wingless wonder.

All good options, but I liked the idea of something short and sweet. :raritywink:

I reviewed this story as part of Read It Later Reviews #51.

You can find my review here.

You're giving me a complex, TD. :rainbowlaugh: Thanks for the review!

I don't mean to! I'm more of a facitilies guy. :trollestia:

More seriously, grats on getting featured.

...I got featured? :rainbowderp: You mean in the box?

Hm. Maybe I'm just misremembering.



I need to get around to reading Not In Bluff Nor Bravado Nor Loneliness. I keep putting it off for some reason. :fluttershyouch:

And here I got my hopes up.:rainbowlaugh: And aw, jeez! "Bluff" should have been the first one you read! I consider it my best work (maybe after Sensation, but that's kind of a different ballgame altogether). When you end up reading it, I hope you'll like it, if only so I don't have to see anothe combo of "Vivid's a good author" and "Not Recommended." :derpytongue2:

The first story of yours that I read IIRC was For When It Rains, which I really liked. Bluff has been on my higher priority lists for a while now, but it always seems to get bumped for something else... or laziness. :trixieshiftright:

It isn't even that long!

MY call sign?

Mantis. Yours?

Usually just "Vivid" around the fandom. :raritywink:

her callsign is "bitch" cause she is a bitch,

also, spitfire not sharing her call-sign is hypocritical, don't you think, she told RD to just deal with it, yet she's embarrased by something, she tell the other wonderbolts to "just deal with"

Shitfire! Holy fucking shit! Oh my
God! That's what I came up with, only it involved Indian food. :rainbowlaugh:

Okay..... yeah do gotta admit... that is worse then 'Crash'.

And the next day, spitfire made it against the rules for the wonderbolts to call each other nicknames.

Rainbow dash:not so fun being called a nickname even if it’s just a friendly jab is it?

Spitfire: I’ll take down your probation immediately if we say neither of our names never happened.

Rainbow: Deal.


My reaction to the ending
