Dewdrops on the Grass

Rainbow Dash takes her friends for a ride. It doesn't go well.

An entry in the A Thousand Words Contest under Humor.

Thank you to The Sleepless Beholder for pre-reading assistance and assistance in locating this beautiful cover art that, it so happens, was also based on the same song as the fic.

So, in summary:

Howdy, hi~!

Pffft, this was positively goofy and morbidly humourous. I do enjoy the conclusion brought forth over a rather unassuming picture that this would not end well for anyone involved. Really good flow to this one, getting the full story through without any bloating through the middle.

Fun read, thanks Dews :D

I knew I recognized this series of events! Question, what species are the blood sacrifices?

I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride

Well, I knew there was going to be a bit of morbid humor in this, but I have to say, I'm glad that death is just a minor inconvenience to the parties involved (except perhaps the blood sacrifices). At first, I thought everypony was scared because Rainbow Dash had gotten ponies killed in a drunken crash before, but I didn't expect the scared ponies were the ones that were killed!:rainbowlaugh: A very humorous tale that I think I'll favorite! Hope it does well in the contest!

Well, the song did say "One horse open slay..." :applejackunsure:

Applejack always forgives Rainbow Dash for killing her. It just gives her a little time to hang out with her parents until Twilight whips out her necromancy.

“Oh Rainbow…” Fluttershy let out a world-weary sigh. “I’ll go get the blood sacrifices.”

...beg pardon? You know, of all the things I was expecting with Fluttershy...that wasn't one of them. XD ...how often has she done this though?

Dammit, Rainbow. :rainbowlaugh:

Oh, that is just a horribly morbid idea....

Dashing through the snow, in a one horse open sleigh... I have this art on a t-shirt, its great!

Almost any tragedy can be turned into a comedy with the line ‘I’ll go get the blood sacrifices’

Well, I guess she had some in her shed...



Okay, you managed to find a way to create a sad twist to my silly morbid comedy. I applaud you. In fact I almost want to write this follow-up.

More than you might think.

Go for it! You can even still make it a comedy if you play the cards right.

Well, based on the dialog I'd have lowballed it at...2? Maybe three times?

... Yeah, with the likes of Dash, Pinkie, and even Twilight herself in that social circle, this seems believable. Thank goodness for sanctioned necromancy. (At least, I hope it's sanctioned.)

Most entertaining bit of black holiday comedy. (Unholiday?) Thank you for it and best of luck in the judging.
