To be honest. Everytime i see a picture of Rainbow Dash soaring gracefully in the sky as she soaks in the airy and mild-cloudy freedom she's bathing in... I can feel the majestic feeling they call 'Freedom' within me and her... I just envy for it so much. I can feel my heart soar everytime, like it's craving to touch the sky like this beautiful multi-coloured mare. We do fly... But we want to feel the wind in our hair as we do... We want our feet to feel nothing but sweet sweet air, you have so much room to play, and so much room to stretch out your body, where you feel free to be yourself without having anybody on the ground judging you for who you are as you express yourself, hidden from upon the clouds... It just feels great to be in the air... I just wish we were born with wings, born to fly
Dusk had to be Rainbow Dash's absolute favorite time in the day. That time in which light of the sun began to wane yet still cast it's warm glow throughout the world. She esspecially enjoyed the varying colors reflected in the sky and clouds, stamping the region with unique hues that changed not only every night, but every few moments. At times Rainbow Dash would take to the air and climb higher as the sun sank so she could savor a particular moment of beauty just a little bit longer. Then, once she could climb no higher, and the moment had past she would let herself fall. Neither gliding nor diving, she would let her body relax, basking in the last of the sun's warmth so it could caress her body while gravity pulled her down through other lesser moments of beauty. This was the time when she truely appreciated being born a pegasus. Having been given the chance to view the world from many different perspectives and enjoy it's natural beauty in any way she chose. Rainbow Dashes speed and agility were what made people notice her and called her gifted for. But this choice in moments of beauty and bliss where the true gifts that life had given to her.
I love the colors you used for this. It almost gives me a sense that i'm right there falling through the clouds with her. I also like how you melded the colors of her hair, all too often artists have the colors divided pristinely. I don't fault them for it because that's how she's depicted the show, but it's nice to see a piece where her hair has shifted and blended some. I hope you like the little fic i put together. I could totally see Rainbow Dash doing something like this at the end of the day to unwind .... and yes ... i know skydiving sounds like a stupid way to unwind for you or me, but for her she's always powering through her day either flapping to fly or tensing up to be as aerodynamic as possible in her dives. Even gliding requires some effort. Freefalling would give her a chance to just let her body go loose and let gravity do its work while she enjoyed the view on the way down.
