Because sometimes, you just had a dream that you just wanted SO BADLY that it ended up blinding you a little bit.
I stand firmly by my opinion that Dusty is NOT a bad pony. Reckless, over-enthusiastic and with a bad case of tunnel vision perhaps (in fact, more than likely) but I can at least understand her motivations.
Imagine dreaming about being a Wonderbolt your entire life, and then just being ONE step away from achieving it. Wouldn't you try and push just that little bit harder in the end to make sure you suceed? Sometimes, you end up pushing too hard. That doesn't make what you do right or automatically forgives bad behaviour, but it shouldn't brand you as being a bad person.
Get up, dust yourself off, learn, mature, and then walk away a little wiser, knowing that you CAN make that dream, but you shouldn't lose yourself while doing it.
*shrugs* or whatever.
I like Lightning Dust. I really... REALLY hope Spitfire gave her a second chance and didn't just expell her. That's not what she needs and it won't help her grow up a little bit.
*gets off soapbox*
...I have no idea what she's doing here, but in my head I like to think she's doing cloud canon-balls from the ground.... because wouldn't you?
I hesitate to call this a 'quick drawing' but it is kinda. thank you once again for the feature EQD! Once more you guys help give me a much needed confidence boost
