Very well written. Better written than some of that crap in the feature box.

Good work on this! :pinkiehappy:

Silver out!

You, my good sir, are my favorite writer on Fimfiction. Your stories are just plain amazing. This one is beautifully written. And that the ending to the 1st chapter is going to be on my mind until the next one. :rainbowkiss:

Can't wait for the next chapter! Great so far! :rainbowkiss:

That ending.... THAT ENDING!!!! Next chapter please!

Rainbow was raped. Its all starting to make sense. I bet it was Soarin. This is really good so far. Keep it up!


After clobbering Soarin within inches of his life.


Tragedy, Sad AND Dark?! :pinkiegasp: I... I may skip this one BronyNeumo sorry. :pinkiesad2:

Oh wow. Talk about suspense! Way to go!

I wonder if she'll get pregnant.

Then that'll add more trauma.


I DEMAND ANOTHER CHAPTER:flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage:

Yesyesyesyesyes. I love it, keep up the good work sir. Very well written

Damnit... cliffhanger. I think I know what you mean, but I'm not sure if I'm right...

832626 Thanks for calling my work crap dude, anyways I do agree that is story is good and I like it a lot. I'm looking forward to the next chapter :twilightsmile:


I didn't even read your stuff man, sorry about the misunderstanding. I was referencing that the mainstream writers like "device heretic" and such are starting to get repetitive and the quality of their work is dropping. :fluttershysad:

Point is, I didn't mean, "in the feature box RIGHT NOW" but what I mean was "what's usually in the feature box". I would like to apologize for the misunderstanding. :twilightoops:

Maybe I'll give your story a go huh? :twilightsmile:

I can already tell this is gonna be great.

833020 It has to have been Soarin or else her dreams being shattered wouldn't make sense. If it was a Wonderbolt, that would make sense why she couldn't be around them now. If not, I would think she'd keep pushing it

Wonderful! Grammar is amazing and the story line is very well thought out. Good job :pinkiehappy:

This looks... interesting. I think. Never liked the Wonderbolts personally, if one of 'em hurt Dashie, it'll just give me more reason to hate 'em.

Curious to see where this goes and as said, it looks interesting. I'll be tracking this for now mate.

I love the story. Keep it up!

Oh wow, this is really something. Among the most descriptive stories I've read in the last year. I was able to see every detail you wrote out as though it were in front of me.

Very intriguing. You've got a favorite from me. (If it means anything, haha.)

Seriously, I don't know how people can write dark-grim like this, and not lead horrible, angsty lives.:twilightoops: Ah, well. My talent is for comedy, yours is for tragedy. You really had me on the edge of my seat, awesome job!:rainbowlaugh:


The internet award you with another favorite, Neumo!

Alright, seriously, I had to make a bloody account just to say how sick I feel after reading this.

I've read Cupcakes. I know what to expect from a dark story. I've read Rainbow Factory. I've seen someone get torn apart at the EMOTIONAL level.

And then, I read this, and I've never been hit so hard in my gut before :l.

I love you, and then I hate you for doing this to Dash. She may be egotistical, stubborn, and overly prideful...but holy crap this is...well this is just brutal.

Magnificent writing, and I will be anticipating this with eager want to read.


This is the most well written story I have read in quite a while. Masterfully told, character interaction is phenominal, and the ending leaves you wanting so much more. I eagerly await the next installment.

A lot of people have been saying that Soarin' is the one that raped Rainbow.
I'm just going to throw my personal Wild Mass Guess out there; Rapidfire did the crime.
Think about it for a second. He's retiring from the Wonderbolts. Rainbow is taking his spot. And who's the male frontrunner for the Wonderbolts, and thus the patsy that gets blamed in his stead? Soarin'. It is the perfect crime.
I might be wrong (and I probably am), but it makes sense, no?
Story-wise, all of your works are Grade A+. Keep on writin'.


"She could not be sure, but for a brief instant, she thought she saw his tongue flick out of his mouth."

Yea, I don't think I need anymore proof that it was indeed soarin :twilightoops:

850143 how the hell did i miss that
Still... woulda been interesting, wouldn't it?


It's definitely an interesting theory and props for thinking outside the box. Its just after that crude gesture from soarin it's just hard to envision the perp being anyone else lol

Rainbow is definitely my favourite character but although this I like to read dark, tragic, sad stories with her as the main character. Does this mean that I am a monster? Or just I like well-written stories, regardless of type?
Anyway, good fanfic. Make new chapter.

This cover art. Soooooo saaaaaad! I want hug Dashie so much! :raritycry::applecry::fluttercry:

I just read this a couple days ago and I can't get this story out of my head. Even when I tried to read other fanfics I keep thinking back to this one. I've never wanted to see what happens more in a story than I do in this one.

I keep checking back daily to see if this is updated because I must know what happens, and I find that if you can grab a readers attention like that then good job.:pinkiehappy:

This is really well done, are you going to continue this story?


Yes, I will. Unfortunately, my editor has gone on a week's holiday and won't return until the 26th or 27th, so new chapters likely won't be out until then.

850143 Could be a misdirect. Some one can have sexy thoughts of someone with without thinking they need to rape them.


true, but there's a fine line between being promiscuous/flirtatious and just downright vile. and unless you know the person or he/she has given you some type of consent to make that type of gesture then its forgivable, but in this case soarin knows next to nothing about rainbow dash other then her name and where she lives. its a crude and vulgar gesture to make and the author put it in there for a reason, soarin did it :pinkiegasp:

929343 I wouldn't mind being a replacement editor if you want the chapters rolled out quicker. I have a year of AP English and I'm not afraid to use it. :twistnerd:

ARGH, those cliffhangers!

But god, this is a tear-jerker. I WANT THOSE JERKS TO DIE! :flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage:

Dashie please let us help you... :fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry:

I saw this featured and yelled''An update?Thank you Celestia!!!!!!!!!"

I was really waiting for this story to update for a while! It's well written, and has a great story going for it. If it's not to much to ask, I would hope you would continue this story, it's great! :pinkiehappy:

This is such a good story!

Finally! Been waiting for this.

I'm not crying. I ain't even on the brink. Am I a bad person, or have I just watched too much Law & Order: SVU?:pinkiesad2:


I assume that's the same reason I haven't cried writing this as well.


Don' worry, I'll be sure to continue it. And I'll try to quicken my pace a bit, too.

please, write more :fluttershbad:

You created very good climate here.

FUCKING FINALLY. Diving right in!

Tentatively followed. There are a lot of things that would make me drop this like a hot potato but the writing is good enough to make me want to give it a try. Good luck, I hope this doesn't disappoint.
