Waiting Games by MLP-Silver-Quill Waiting Games by MLP-Silver-Quill
Like so many others, I assumed that the Canterlot Wedding encore would feature a season 3 announcement. I'd been working on this piece for a while and thought, Oh crud, this is a pretty timely comic and it wonít be as funny if I donít post it before the new season starts. So it became a rush job.

Well, the Hub got me good on this one. But in some ways I think the lack of an announcement adds to the punch-line. There's little point in complaining, and plenty of life to live before the new season starts.

Plus, don't interrupt Twilight's reading time, or she'll prank you something awful.

And now for some credits:

All character colors (except Pumpkin Cake) are based on guides by :iconkefkafloyd:.
Rainbow Dashís name font is courtesy of FreeFonts.com and their Breezed Caps font.
Likewise, Pinkie Piesí dialog is the Porcupine Pickle font. Yes, Porcupine Pickle.
:iconredheadstock:ís Light Beam Brushes added extra punch to the Sonic Rainboom.
"Elder" Twilight's colors are based on a commissioned piece by :iconpalestorm:.
And if you look at the second-to-last panel, you may see :iconqtmarx:ís Library Vector as a background.

Thanks to these folks for helping make this comic possible. Hope everyone enjoys!

UPDATE: Thank you Equestria Daily! I not only get to be featured with two more excellent comics, but I also get to enjoy a wellspring of supportive comments from the fan base! I appreciate all the encouragement and the constructive criticism.

I neglected to thank :iconerockertorres:, who's background vector inspired my design of the planet.

Thanks to all for the favorites and comments. I hope future comics will continue to impress!

Don't try to contact me on Youtube. The user interface is so poor that messages are easily buried.

I'm afraid I can't do any collaborations on Rainbow Rocks.

Yes but I don't have that many vectors of my OC and they're not that good.  Plus I don't know anyone who could make my OC (I made her using pony maker and a friend used photoshop to on her cutie mark)
