I'm a brony and a Pinkie Pie fan but I like all of the mane six, as well as Spike. I hope to provide some entertaining and interesting fanfics for the Brony community.


(An early birthday present for Madeline Peters. Proofread and edited by deadpansnarker.)

Scootaloo hasn't fully made her peace with not being able to fly, not just yet. A part of her is still convinced that she can fly if she tries hard enough, all she has to do is find a way to get herself off the ground.

The problem is, she's exhausted all conventional methods. And the only method she can think of is one that her aunts think is too dangerous, launching herself and her scooter into the air at high speed!

But Scootaloo isn't one to take no for an answer! She'll fly if it's the last thing she does! But will her effort be successful? Will she survive the fall if it doesn't? And how will those closest to her react to learning about such a dangerous display?

if she was to fly early in the show, then she'll create a tornado that will split the continent of Equestria.

Anyway, a wonderful little work m8

Love the story! I really should get back to writing fics on this site. Watch this space... :raritywink:

This was a great story in how, to me, genuine to what would've really happened. Scoots was able to have a brief moment of flight. However, in all likelihood, it was more of a 'hover', at best' that felt like flying to a very hopeful pre-teen filly who felt like all the answers were being kept away from her.

There's a bit that I can relate to with Scootaloo in this story. Though it is actually more from the Aunts' perspective.

In my own life, I have had over 50 surgeries on my eyes. This includes procedures done while I was wide awake, locally put under, and put under so hard that I was scurrying the line between life-and-death.

If you were to total all the medical bills, medications, etc. together, it would come out to over $1 million dollars!

And... as you know... I am totally blind with an entire eye having needed to be removed.

So, back to the story, one could throw bits until the cows come home. However the real solution is making good with what you got.

I believe that, in time, Scoots will find her own way to fly. Perhaps a scooter that also is capable of deploying wings and has a built in parachute to slow her descent? Maybe a simple hang glider? There as many ways to fly without wings as there is to see without physical eyesight.

I met Maddy twice at BronyCon. The first was 2013 and the second was 2018. She touched on how growing up had made it fairly hard to do Scootaloo's voice. Though I'm glad she did while she could. That moment where she had to lash out at Dash was the closest we will ever get to canonically stating Scoots' has a 'limitation' that 'disables' her from flight.

Really liked this story; great to include all of Scoot's parents and guardians for this one. Don't know ho0w she survived that fall; pretty scary stuff. Thought Dash would have been the first one to be at her bedside when hearing the news. The Spitfire callback was cool; nice! :twilightsmile:

Nicely done! Wish I could have read it sooner.

Makes me wonder hot it could go if Scoots would meet a certain Oc of mine...

Sorry, just thought out loud:twilightsheepish:
