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

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!

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room
STOP IT!!!!!!
