Wings of Black Glass

The worst fanfic ever written is still better than the greatest story never told.


During a Wonderbolts exhibition at Mt. Aris, Rainbow Dash accidentally crashes at Sonic Rainboom speeds, nearly killing her. Her recovery is slow and painful, grounding her for months. While land-locked, she learns to appreciate life from the new perspective, as well as the pony caring for her.

At the same time, Applejack watches others form families of their own and starts to wonder if she’ll ever get a special-somepony for herself, or if she’ll end up alone. But she doesn't get any time to ponder that before she's suddenly thrust into a caretaker role for a badly wounded Pegasus...

(Found the cover on EQD, not sure who made it...)

I was a little upset that their moment got interrupted so epically, but you made up for it later for the most part. Other then that you story was extremely well written, well structured, and well paced. I might have done myself a sight disservice with it even. I listen rather then read most fics, but I read part of this and realized how must internal dialog you include. It's a subtility you don't get when listening, and yet I still loved it.

Incredible work! It was a pleasant journey from the very beginning till the end. However, I was much more delighted that the narration went truly measured. As a result, I couldn't help but empathise with main characters. And despite the fact that the ending came out just a little bit chaotic (as I think), it didn't spoil the overall impression of your work and made me smile :twilightsmile:

It's like a very nice and soft story that can make you worry at first, but then the only feel you've got is the heartwarming one :heart:


I almost just let it end right when Applebloom and the other showed up, but I felt it needed a less comedic end.


It's not bad, but there are ways to improve the story. I hope my advice helps. I do like this story.

This is PERFECT ! It took way too many tears from me :raritycry:
Thank you, thank you so much my angel! All the love to you :heart:


This little gem is underrated. The pacing is great, the characters are spot-on, they're immediately recognizable... and it was cute as hell.
Thank you.

Thank you for the kind thoughts.
You are quite welcome. :twilightsmile:

“I’d do it myself.” Rarity is the first to give the offer. “But I don’t know the first thing about hospice care.”

Whoa… you need to look up “hospice”. Wrong word.


Hospice care focuses on the care, comfort, and quality of life of a person with a serious illness who is approaching the end of life

I could make the argument that it was Rarity who used it wrong and she only knows about it from when the Apples lost Granny Smith. (Which would have been hospice care.) It could also be said that the skills to take care of someone in Dash's condition at the time wouldn't be all that different from hospice and that could be what she meant. Or it could be that her fear that it might become hospice care was influencing her choice words. There's plenty of room for interpretation.

But I'll concede that I was just wrong and should have used something else.

(Although this does bring up a point that when a character misuses a word is not the same thing as when an author misuses a word.)
(But...Rarity would probably have known better. That's more of an error Dash herself would make.)

Fair point I suppose, but why would Rarity use the word? It seems odd for her to suddenly slip in her command of language. After all, what pony can claim to be more eloquent than she? You’d also have to assume that none of her friends knew what it meant either, otherwise they would have reacted as strongly as I did to the idea that Dash might be dying!
