Face Off! by MLP-Silver-Quill Face Off! by MLP-Silver-Quill
Dear Princess Celestia,

Itís hard for a competitive pony like yours-truly to let go of a challenge. Usually, if Iím gonna go down, I'll be flying and kicking.

But there are some times when itís smarter to let the challenge go and accept that itís not something you can handle right now. It doesnít make you lame or weak or any less awesome. If anything, it makes you appreciate just how awesome other ponies can be.

I guess what Iím saying is that you can still be one of the best ponies, but that doesnít mean youíre the best at
everything.

Your #1 Flyer,
Rainbow Dash

P.S. Could you maybe send a few crates of eye-drops to Ponyville? Weíre all out and the docs say I still need to hydrate.


-----------------------------------------

After working on my last comic for so long, I needed to do something fun and relatively quick. Then I drew panel number five and haven't slept well since.

I've had this idea in the back of my head for a while, but it came to the forefront after the jousting scene in the Crystal Empire. In my view, it was not Dash's finest hour and went against some of the qualities she showed in Hurricane Fluttershy.

Special thanks to go :iconanxet: for the vector of everyone's favorite cross-eyed mare. I made some changes, but the overall vector saved a lot of time and energy.

After working on Dash's expressions, my eyes were starting to look a lot like hers.

Hope you enjoy!

Update: We start this one off Rainbow Dash and bloodshot eyes for perfectly legal reasons...

Yes... legal...

But dang, this was quick. I posted this around 10:00 pm on a Sunday, went to bed, and was on Equestria Daily by mid-morning. Never even had time to send an e-mail submission. So I owe a big thanks to whoever submitted this, or perhaps to a EQD admin who saw and liked the comic right away.

It's fun to see the activity stack up and read everyone's comments. Hopefully you won't find my humor too cracked.

Thanks to everyone for the support!

 Rainbow, you shouldn't challenge Fluttershy to a staring contest. She is the Stare Master, after all.

And the message of the day in layman's terms is: "Never try to beat Fluttershy in a staring contest. You are guaranteed to lose."

You might as well be trying to head butt your way through a brick wall. At least then you'd hurt yourself less. Good job.

Derpy and Fluttershy should have a staring contest. Few may know this, but Derpy won a staring contest with a bunch of statues, while Fluttershy only won a staring contest with a statue maker.

I think Fluttershy would still win that 1-on-1 staring contest. But Derpy could compete against two opponents at once.
