Here it is, one and a half months later, the Rainbow Dash comic I had the idea for one evening. I spent all day on this to finish it before school starts tomorrow! I'm really satisfied with it, and tried to put as much emotion into it as I could.

I hope you guys like it!

EDIT: Oh! I forgot to say! All the panels were done in Illustrator, so each one is a vector. If you want a larger version of one of the panels, just say so and I'll upload it here!

EDIT2: Also forgot to say that the poster in panel one is by :iconshelltoontv:. Thanks!

EDIT3 8/18 4:13pm - Wow, you guys! Not even 24 hours later, this has 10k views, 900 favs and 260 comments. I could not have asked for a more heartwarming or overwhelming response! This comic was on the pony Reddit page, Ponibooru, and Equestria Daily. Between the three, there are over 630 comments on this image full of nothing but praise. You guys are wonderful!

I want you all to know that I took the time to read ALL of them, because each one makes me so happy. You guys are going to make me cry with your crying and happiness.

I love the responses you guys have given me. Some have told me of dreams they had long ago that have been rekindled because of this comic, some told me that this is the first fan-made piece of art that has ever made them cry. And all the many, many comments from you guys telling me that it made you cry! Trust me, you have no idea how happy all this feedback makes me. I am honestly touched and honored that I have touched so many of you with this comic.

Several people have even said that the show's producers should see it, and that's some high praise! Somebody even took the time to post it on Lauren's DA page.

When I tried to make this comic emotional, I guess I succeeded. Much more than I could have imagined!

And this fandom. Let this be the first time for me to personally thank the show's production team for making My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic what it is. While trying to shift the paradigm of children's cartoons, you've inadvertently spawned an enormous community full of people who are loving, kind, and not afraid to show their emotional side anymore. Thank you all! I await season two with great anticipation and look forward to another awesome year of ponies.

Thank you all once again! I do read every comment, but unfortunately I cannot reply to them all. So take this as a massive "thank you" to everybody who favorited, commented on, or even liked this comic of mine. I love this community and I love you all!

EDIT4: So many edits! :icontheww2dude: suggested this music to go with the comic:
It's Tennessee from the movie Pearl Harbor. I think it fits quite well.

EDIT5: :iconspike2: made this wonderful video to go with this comic that uses frames from the comic and clips from the show, along with a nice soundtrack! I love it. I suggest you all watch it. :) [link]

EDIT6: 10-2-2011 - 30k views! Thanks so much, you guys! :iconso-awesomeplz:

EDIT7: 06-13-2012 - 90,000 views. And the amazing EzeCoyote animated this whole comic! I really love it. It's fantastic. Go check it out here! Thanks again for all the support and love, guys! I still always read all your comments. <3

EDIT8: 08-03-2012 - 100k views! Woo!
:iconpinkiepiepartycatplz: It's party time.
Minor edit - Since I've learned a lot more about PNG since when I first made this comic, I was able to compress the file just a little, without losing quality. It went from 5.1mb to 4.27mb.

Really cool comic strip.

I saw the video version of this on youtube and that's how I came across this here on DA. I liked it, it definitely left a lasting impact of emotion afterwards. But, I'm a little confused as to the true meaning behind it. I mean, is this all a day-dream RD is having while starring at the Wonderbolt uniform? The other interpretation I had was, it was an old-age RD starring at the Wonderbolt Uniform while having a flashback of her actual life because the last image of RD made her look old, imo. Anyway, it was definitely a cool comic, very well done bro. Kudos~

Thanks very much! I'm glad you like it.

Your second interpretation is correct. As the title implies, the comic is about Rainbow remembering her journey to becoming a Wonderbolt while she looks at her flight suit.
