Rainbow Dash was only half-serious when she said she could become Princess Luna's successor as dreamwalker.
But when the Princess of the Night knocks on her door after sunset, just a few days after King Sombra's mysterious return, Rainbow Dash finds out that the Princess is very serious about it.
She is here for Rainbow Dash's training.

Oh! An interesting premise and a lovely start. Looking forward to seeing where this one goes.

You've got my attention. Looking forward to where this goes!

I like your confidence and nice Work!

Frankly, i am a bit unsure about that whole Retirement Thing. Day and Night tasks would be too much for Twilight to handle on her own. Plus Luna said r&r, and They didn't a Official Statement to the other Citizens of equestria, so i Hope we see them more in Season 9

I was wondering how long it would take for someone to write a story about that. I mean, that line uttered by Rainbow in the season premiere was basically a fanfic prompt.

I'm glad to see you're treating the premise with the seriousness it deserves, and I'm definitely looking forward to more.

Me too. The ideas for it are flooding in and I have a very exciting plot for it planned. This is my biggest project since the completion of two previous fics of mine that I finished two years ago, "Princess Flurry Heart, Destroyer of Worlds!" and "Aunt Millie", and I can't describe how relieved I am that I can finally write through another big multi-chapter fic again.
I missed doing this during the last two years that weren't kind to me in that regards.
Thanks for the praise! I'll keep delivering with this!

9567288

Thanks!

I like my confidence, too, especially because there hasn't been a whole lot of confidence in my writing in the last two years. Starting this story feels like writing "Princess Flurry Heart, Destroyer of Worlds!" and "Aunt Millie" again. I have a very good feeling about this.
And seeing you join this ride here makes me think on the times when you regularly commented on my two hit stories up there and I am happy that you are reading this story. This puts me right back into 2016 and early 2017 and this will give me another confidence boost,

You name it and I'm surprised no one beat me to it. I would have thought that such an opportunity for a fic that not only puts a Mane Six member into a new situation, but also has a high chance of writing a lot for Luna, would be taken in a matter of days after the season opener aired.

I'm glad to see you're treating the premise with the seriousness it deserves

It could have easily been a short-lived comedy fic or a quick clop one-shot that someone decides to write after hearing this sentence. But there is a lot more to get out of this opportunity and I'll do my best to use it to its full potential. Dreamwalking is something epic, so it deserves an epic story.
Thanks for joining the reader squad here, more chapters will come soon!

Nyronus and I got to chatting about this idea pretty much as soon as the episode dropped, and his fic on the same premise went up tonight. That one's more light-hearted than this appears to be, but it's cool to see such divergent takes. Best of luck!

9569214

I have just noticed this story on the front page. It's good to see that there are more authors who use the idea!

I was actually hoping somebody would do something like this, so let's see how this goes. :twilightsmile:

Thank and thank you for the fave! :twilightsmile: Chapter 2 will be here tomorrow!

Personally, I think Celestia and Luna will continue to do things like move the sun and moon even after retiring, because that is what their special talents are. They just won't have to worry about all the governing duties as princesses going on top of it.

But that said, it would still be interesting to see how the Mane 6 would handle those same duties if turned over to them. :twilightsmile:

9570389
Yeah. The fact Luna saw it as r&r and There was no Official Statement to the other Citizens of equestria, i can't Imagine they're just gone like that

Nice Work! Must not be easy for Luna to be reminded of her past. By the Cover, i'd say Rainbow Looks Good as alicorn.

9573469
It means I should wait for more chapters before judging this story.

9573554

Must not be easy for Luna to be reminded of her past.

The past is not always a pleasant thing to think about. Especially not if discoveries of old things bring back certain old memories.

By the Cover, i'd say Rainbow Looks Good as alicorn.

It's a good picture, albeit a little misleading. Rainbow Dash will not become an alicorn in this story.

9574240
I see, makes it the more interesting how she uses that as Pegasus.

And sorry about the PMs lately, just thought you might be interested.

9573583

I hope you will enjoy it then once you decide to read it.

9574247
I did read it. But I don’t want to judge a story like this based on just two chapters.

9574414

I see. I got confused by your comment, because the story is in your Read Later list.

This won't hurt -- I have had doctors promise me that in the past and they were all liars. You don't say "This won't hurt" for pleasant procedures.

9576568

I had doctors telling me that who lied and doctors who told me that it might hurt now. If your doctor lies to you about it, I say it's time to find a different one.
Will it hurt Rainbow Dash? You'll have to wait and see.

Nice! While not becoming an alicorn, i Think she would look Good as one.

Pretty sure it will be a Surprise for scoots to see her in her Dreams

Well, you can see that on the cover art.^^ Even though that's the only place where you will see it. :twilightsheepish:

You can bet it will be a great and joyous moment once that happens. :scootangel:

Thanks for reading!

I'm really liking where this is going. The interaction between Luna and Rainbow is really good and they work really well together. Also good on her for not wanting to be an alicorn yet, she knows that it wouldn't be the right choice for her (though after a few years of dream walking she may change her mind)... though it does give me ideas.

Looking forward to seeing more!

Intriguing. I like how you pointed out Dash's relationship with foals.

Like the mysterious atmosphere. Luna seemed to have had a fillyhood flashback.

Nice chapter. Liking Dash's anger and issues she needs to overcome.

Looks like I forgot to answer a few comments here. :twilightsheepish:

The interaction between Luna and Rainbow is really good and they work really well together.

Thank you! I realized while revising the first three chapters that I am very good at writing interactions between Luna and Rainbow Dash. There's something there that flows really naturally when I write for them. I have written a story with them as the mane characters once already, a short story that I wrote for NaPoWriMo 2014 more than five years ago, and writing that story felt just the same as this one. Back then I was thinking it was merely the genre that made it so easy for me to write the story.
But writing for them in "Dreamwalker Dash" feels just the same and happens just as easy, so it looks like I have a hidden talent of writing Luna and Rainbow Dash on adventures together! :scootangel: I am glad I can write so much more for them with this story!

Looking forward to seeing more!

I have just finished the revision of Chapters 1 - 3 and will gradually release the revised chapters over the next few days. Re-reading them is recommended, as a lot has improved, and will be appreciated. :twilightsmile: The story will also update again beginning with next week!

Intriguing. I like how you pointed out Dash's relationship with foals.

Thank you! I think that is one very overlooked aspect of her personality in the fandom. The show doesn't depict her talent with foals in any detailed way, save for her interactions with Scootaloo, which only confirm that she and Scoots get along well, and the few interactions with Applebloom and Sweetie Belle we've seen in "Flight to the Finish", but we don't see a confirmation of her general talent for dealing with foals there.
If I'm not forgetting anything, there are only three moments in the show when we saw her interacting with foals other than Scootaloo, Applebloom and Sweetie Belle; one was just a photo shoot without any conversations, one was saving Aura from a well she had fallen into and the third one was her short conversation with Alula that we've seen in "Fame and Misfortune".
The third one is the most detailed depiction we got to see in the show, but Rainbow Dash was too overwhelmend with the admiration of the fillies there to show us anything significant.
And the only time when we saw her interacting with many different foals, in hers and Spitfire's "Friends Forever" comic issue, that really let her talent for dealing with foals shine, is unfortunately dismissed as "not canon" by many, so most in the fandom (if they even read this issue) will likely not remember that.
There aren't many who really know just how good Rainbow Dash is with foals.

Like the mysterious atmosphere. Luna seemed to have had a fillyhood flashback.

That could easily be.

Nice chapter. Liking Dash's anger and issues she needs to overcome.

This was a pretty harsh lesson for Rainbow Dash. And there is a lot she has to learn that's coming to her.


I have now finished revising the first three chapters of the story. They will be gradually re-released over the next few days and I will also update "Dreamwalker Dash" again beginning next week!
Re-reads of the chapters are highly recommended, as a lot has improved, and will be appreciated! :twilightsmile:

Yes! You can read all about the future of "Dreamwalker Dash" here:

https://www.fimfiction.net/blog/885975/the-revision-of-dreamwalker-dash-is-finished-what-happens-now

And Chapter 2 is re-released now, in its better, revised version!

Nice Work! Worth the wait.

Hope you doing well After this.

And as Silly as it Sounds, i am still used to the orginal name of Hypersonic

What the “bleep” is wrong with Hyper Sonic?! Is she a friend or foe?

Should this be Hyper’s second year of Friendship School instead of her third year?

I am deeply uncomfortable with HyperSonic.
Otherwise, good chapter, and I cannot wait to see more.

10047547

Thanks! I sometimes still say "Lemon Crumble" too. I grew very attached to her before we knew her real name.

Mission accomplished then. All according to plan..... But, don't worry, Hyper Sonic is only a little excited because she has just gotten a very good news. :scootangel:
.

Should this be Hyper’s second year of Friendship School instead of her third year?

No, it is her third year. Explaining in detail why would take a while but, basically, when Cozy Glow arrived at the school (she was heavily implying to Applebloom, Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle that she is a new student), the second school year since Twilight founded her school had just started. This is evident in "Non-Compete Clause", when we see how often Fluttershy has been voted "Teacher of the Month" already. The pictures on the wall show that nine months since the founding of the school have passed there.
Sometime between the events of "Non-Compete Clause" and "Marks for Effort", summer break after the first year happened and the second school year started. Which was close to ending at the end of Season 8, as we heard Gallus talk about "finals coming up" in the Season 8 Finale. The third school year then started at the beginning of Season 9, as we could see in "Uprooted".
And that is the time the beginning of this story is set at, shortly after "Sombra" attacked the Crystal Empire and destroyed the Tree of Harmony. It needs observation and an eye for details, but Hyper Sonic is indeed in her third year at the school now.

crosses fingers behind back
Hopefully it's not the start of an frenemy relationship or something like that.

I hear ya. I solved such problems by usung both names, one is therea name, the other one a nickname

What is Hyper Sonic hiding? Was there a reason why she ran off from Rainbow Dash besides embarrassment?

Miles away and deep down under the earth, Rainbow Dash did the same. .

Is that another term for dreaming or is Rainbow Dash somehow buried underground?

Is the next chapter going to take place at the same time of the third chapter, but from Rainbow’s perspective?

Sorry for the multiple questions.

Very nice! Great work, as always!

10070864

Is that another term for dreaming or is Rainbow Dash somehow buried underground?

The answer on that question is in Chapter 2.
.

Is the next chapter going to take place at the same time of the third chapter, but from Rainbow’s perspective?

Chapter 3 is already from Rainbow Dash's perspective.

The answers on these questions will come soon. You won't have to wait long.

I mean the fifth chapter! Not the third chapter! Sorry my mistake.
