The Albinocorn


You don't have to dream! Your life's a masterpiece! Tip Jar!

E

(Taken place prior to "Wonderbolts Academy")

Skyball is the most popular aerial sport in Equestria and well known around the world. The princesses decide to hold an open tournament, the winning team gets 1,000,000 bits in prize money and a chance to face off against the Wonderbolts themselves in a final game.
Seeing her chance at stardom, Rainbow Dash assembles an unlikely team to play in tournament. Can the Ponyville Pegasi rise to the occasion, or will they be grounded by the competition?

Looks promising! You have a nice start here.

Only one question lingers.. Is skyball the pony version of volleyball? :derpytongue2:

Yes, I am wondering what sport Skyball is based off of. Or maybe it's totally unique? Might want to add a description of what Skyball actually is somewhere in this chapter.

Anyway, I love the idea and how you match Rainbow Dash's character pretty much exactly from the show. If you manage to squeeze in Fluttershy and Derpy, then I will be super awesome duperly 120% satisfied. :pinkiehappy:

1926060 Fluttershy probably yes, Thunderlane is in the character tags so I'd say he's probably going to be in here as well. As for Derpy who knows? :trixieshiftright:

Even so that's only three other pegasi. Rainbow Dash would still need five more and Scootaloo can't particpate because she's not old enough. :rainbowhuh:

I sense some OC's coming in. :eeyup:

My reader instincts and tingling. The hurricane is going to show up again and be important. Now lets see, what other Pegasus do we know? That "YAA" dude, Flitter and her sister. (forgot names.) ........Ya, that's all I can think of that hasn't already been mentioned.

Nice start there man. Looking forward to the next chapter :pinkiehappy:

when will new chapters come up?:raritywink: Because I am loving this story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:pinkiehappy:

1933184 Next chapter should be up before days end. though I guess that depends on where you live...

Quick question : who are those two ponies in the character tags? (the one to the right of Thunderlane) :twilightblush:

Cloudchaser and Flitter. They can be seen in Hurricane Fluttershy. One of them has a speaking role but I can't remember which.

Should I join this with the first chapter or just leave it as is? What do you guys think?

awesome chapter. can't wait for more!!!!:pinkiehappy:

It's amazing how much fluttershy can memorize in one morning :pinkiehappy:

What can I say it fits.

Also I forgot about Snowflake the steroid pegasus, or perhaps he's not on steroids and can actually compete. Even so that's only 7 so Dash would need 2 more.

And of course Fluttershy is best goalie.

1934793 Rainbow Dash is best coach and Spitfire is best drill sergeant. :rainbowdetermined2:

1939348 Thanks for the list, but i've got the team all set in my head. This is a great list for names for opposing players though. :twilightsmile:

OK, OK, OK. You are an epic writer! You're righting style is amazing and this concept seems so fun. I was literally talking to the computer screen saying, "Make her goalie, you need to make her goalie, YES!" This story is awesome! I am not easily impressed by righting style but this is just amazing! One tiny mistake, when Dash said, "I gave this a lot of thought." you put though. Besides that this is great! Teach me your ways! And have the next chapter out soon! :pinkiehappy:

1950220 :twilightblush: Please stop, you'll inflate my ego to that of Rainbow Dash's. But I'm glad you enjoy my story so much. You should try my other one Primoris Concordia: Mingling Worlds.
And um... it's 'writing' not righting... sorry.

when are new chapters coming up?????? :twilightsmile::twilightsmile:

I'm trying to run on a pattern between my two stories where I post a chapter for one then jump to the other story. As soon as I post for Mingling Worlds I'll write the next chapter. maybe even two.

Ah yes the old fashioned Drill Sergeant McNasty routine, always useful for intimdation and motivation. :rainbowdetermined2:

..... YES!!!!!! :rainbowwild::rainbowwild::rainbowwild::rainbowwild::rainbowwild::rainbowwild::rainbowwild::rainbowwild:

you finally updated!!!!!!!!!:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

yeeeah. The drill sergeant routine wont do too well with fluttershy :fluttershyouch: Loving it so far!

Pleeease tell me :derpyderp1: Derpy is going to be on the Ponyvile team!

2060700 You'll have to wait and see, my friend. :raritywink:

You forgot to finish the sentence. "She could a playful laugh up somewhere ahead of her." I'm guessing you meant to put hear in there. Other then that awesome story looking forward to reading more.

Oops I noticed one more mistake. You forgot to put see in this sentence. "Soon she could all of Rainbow Dash and not just her colorful contrail." You seem to have the same problem as me. When I write I am thinking ahed of what I'm writing. But again excited for more.

Only nitpick is that Fluttershy doesn't call Rainbow Dash "Dashie". Only Pinkie Pie does that. :twilightoops: (Edit: She actually does.)

Other than that you did a great job. Since you said this takes place before "Wonderbolt Academy" I know we likely won't see Lightning Dust but perhaps we'll see Gilda. :eeyup:

2135122 Well Fluttershy did call her Dashie in Keep Calm and Flutter On. But that is afterwards. I don't know, I thought it was cute.
And there will be a lot of familiar faces. :raritywink:

2135748 I don't remember Fluttershy ever calling her that. Are you really sure she said it and not Pinkie Pie? :applejackunsure:

2136026 Pretty sure... I think... maybe. I need to watch the episode again, but I'm pretty sure it was during the tea party.
Edit: 14:23

2136895 Well I'll have to watch it again. I wonder how long before the new episodes come to Netflix? :trixieshiftright:

I'm disappointed I couldn't read this earlier was on vacation. this is one if the story's I've been following and it's looking awesome so far. One thing though I like the idea on what you did with Dizzy twister however I'm kinda making a prediction if your gonna have Dizzy get on opposing team (just a guess on what your going with this) wouldn't she have to live in that town? Not sure on the rules just pointing that out. If this isn't the plan then disregard what I have said. I also loved the part where Fluttershy cheered for her self i can imaging her :yay: yay!!! Great story so far and I am looking forward to more.

Ohhh... bad, Dashie, bad! Better burns those notes now. Meh.. 1 point isn't so bad.

Good job so far. I'm a sucker for stories with workout montages.

What took so long?

I'm not trying to be rude or anything, just wondering

Failing to read those forms all the way through is going to come back to bite Rainbow Dash, I just know it. :rainbowderp:

when is the next one going to come out? Its already been over 3 weeks.

3091759 It has? -looks at last release date- Damn. I'm working on it.
