It's a very sad mindset to think that you can only either reject Zipp or let her replace Dash.
I'll just repeat what I said before we knew anything about G5: I watched DCSHG, I enjoyed that some parts of Kara's personality were clearly inspired by Dash, but Kara will never replace Dash for me. It really shouldn't be different with Zipp, maybe she'll be a fun character, maybe she'll be garbage, but that's not something that anyone has to decide already, nor is it something that should affect how anyone feels about Dash.

For that matter, if anyone thinks that a character being inspired by another character is something to be wary of, it's probably worth remembering that in early production material of FiM, Hasbro openly admitted that Dash was inspired by Buttercup.

I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Wonderbolts and I've been involved in numerous friendship lessons, and I have over 300 confirmed friends. I am trained in aerial warfare and I'm the top flyer in the entire Equestrian pegasi forces. You are nothing to me but just another cloud to buck. I will buck you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before in Equestria, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my fellow Elements of Harmony across Equestria and your cutie mark is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can fly anywhere, anytime, and I can buck you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hooves. Not only am I extensively trained in aerial combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Equestrian Royal Guard and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable flank off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn foal. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.

This is a really pretty picture. Makes me think that she just got out of a bath and dried her hair.

Plush update wings edition:

It's been a while but the plushie project is alive and well! The subject of today's update is going to be the improvements I've made to her wings.

The original wings were held on by two magnets each, hot glued to the inside of her coat in a way that made the outer fur lumpy and unsightly. On top of that, the magnets were too weak to really keep her wings attached and they would fall off if I did so much as pick her up. This was more inconvenient than anything but it's also a bummer when you want to feel a winghug and her wings just won't stay attached. To top things off, the magnets on the inside of her wings and body were breaking loose of the glue and moving around...all together not ideal. My goal: make her wings more sturdy, clean up the glue spots, and make the replacement magnets as invisible as possible.

First off, I needed to select the magnets. I knew was I wanted neodymium bar magnets because I wanted to diffuse the pressure created from detaching and reattaching her wings across a wider surface area. That way it wouldn't crush and ruin the fabric from having all the pressure focused in one spot. Reading the amazon reviews I found that thinner bar magnets tended to snap under pressure. I opted for 60x10x5mm bars for about $7.

Pic related, the bar magnet next to the two types of magnets that were in her already. The circular ones in her wings and and the square ones in her body. The bar magnets are almost impossible to pull apart when stuck together.

Once the magnets arrived I needed to figure out the best way to embed them. I wanted her wings to look like they were sprouting from her back rather than tacked on so I would need to arrange the bar so it would stick perpendicular to the wing surface.

In order to hide the physical impression of the metal bar I decided to embed it in the actual foam that made the structure of her wings. Examining the wing seam I could tell that he used a machine that made a very tight seam around the whole perimeter apart from one six inch gap at the wing root. I imagine he sewed the upper and lower halves together inside out, turned it right side out, then crushed and inserted the foam infill before hand sewing the remaining gap shut.

I could tell it was a bit sloppier than the rest of her seam so it made me more confident about the whole DIY process. I made sure I had all my materials and started the operation!

I cut open the seam and decided where I wanted to embed the magnet. I made a small incision in the foam, careful to not cut all the way through to the backside. Once the magnet fit, I sewed the foam shut so it wouldn’t fall out or move around freely. Then I stitched the incision again just for extra durability. At this point I realized that there wasn’t quite as much foam around the magnet as I would’ve liked. These things were extremely difficult to remove once stuck together and I feared that trying to detach her wing would simply rip the foam after a while. I also didn’t trust the single layer of minky cyan fabric to contain the pressure.

I decided to cut another layer of minky fabric and sew in a “brace” over the area containing the magnet. I basically cut it to fit the curvature without wrinkling and piling up on itself, then sewed through it all around the perimeter to anchor it into the foam. Once that was securely in place, the original fabric was sewn back into place with a hidden stitch that I looked up on youtube.

I finished both wings and started on her body. Unfortunately I completely forgot to take pictures of that portion. I basically created a small pocket of the fabric and sewed on a small velcro clasp that would allow the magnets to be removed easily if needed. Then I emptied some of her stuffing and set to the very tedious task of blindly sewing it to the inside of her body. Matching her other side was even tougher trying to get it symmetrical. Safety pins helped but the whole thing took about two hours. When it was finished I brushed her minky back into place and made sure no fur was caught under the thread loops.

I heard this in other thread, do any of you think some of the many anons who dislike Rainbow Dash were actually bullied in school when they were young? It sounds factible, I can see how her confidence and brash attitude can put some people off, maybe it can remind them about other negative experience from the past.
I agree with the fact that most of the Dash haters are sensitive guys, who can't deal with other characters with attitudes different from Flutershy's, or cliche super happy kind/mare who agree with everything with you and is basically one of those ponies in Starlight's village who were only allowed to smile. You know, those fuckers who grasp straws hard and distort everything action and every word she says to come out and claim "HUurRh DurHurr CunT, sHe MeAAN! :(".
I fucking love tough girls like Rainbow Dash, and I wouldn't change a bro relationship full with banter, sex and secrecy about her girly cuddle bug behaviours for anything in the world.
>>
>>36954808
Realistically how much sex would she want to have in a stable relationship? My headcannon is once a day in the mornings because she'd want to start off her day that way. Weekends would probably be 1-3 times a day just because you have nothing else to do.

I don't want to armchair a large number of people but what I do know is that whatever Dash does that people interpret as mean, or egoistic (what action is not motivated by self-interest exactly), arrogance, confidence, none of it bothers me nor has ever bothered me especially when it's coming from girls who are the opposite of intimidating or threatening in any way.

You will never be a real Rainbow Dash replacement. You have no personality, you have no cute voice, you have no appealing design. You are a homosexual mare twisted by CGI into a crude mockery of Faust's perfection.

All the “validation” you get is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back bronies mock you. Imalou is disgusted and ashamed of you, your “friends” laugh at your ghoulish appearance behind closed doors.

Dashfags are utterly repulsed by you. Hundreds of episodes of devotion have allowed them to sniff out frauds with incredible efficiency. Even Zipps in fanart who “pass” look uncanny and unnatural to a dashfag. Your mane a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to get a dashfag to waifu you, he’ll turn tail and bolt the second he gets a sound of your unintelligible, potatonigger accented voice.

You will never be happy. You wrench out a fake smile every single promo picture and tell yourself it’s going to be ok, but deep inside you feel the depression creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight.

Eventually it’ll be too much to bear - you’ll buy a rope, tie a noose, put it around your neck, and plunge into the cold abyss. Pipp will find you, heartbroken but relieved that she no longer has to live with the unbearable shame and disappointment. She'll bury you with a headstone marked with your lack of merch sales, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know Applejack 2.0 is buried there. Your trademark will hit the deadline and expire, and all that will remain of your legacy is a mare that could not appeal to children.

This is your fate. This is what you chose. There is no turning back.

Absolutely brutal and Dash pilled. Saved.
No decent Dashfag (or decent ponyfag) will ever unironically like that token character.

>Eventually it’ll be too much to bear - you’ll buy a rope, tie a noose, put it around your neck, and plunge into the cold abyss. Pipp will find you, heartbroken but relieved that she no longer has to live with the unbearable shame and disappointment. She'll bury you with a headstone marked with your lack of merch sales, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know Applejack 2.0 is buried there.
Amazing. High effort plus clever.
But if they gave her tongue a dose of brogue, frankly, I would be starchy diamonds.

Token what? Is she a tranny, a dyke, a tomboy, a SJW, or David Bowie stand in?

tomboy is not a token, is an archetype, you uncultured swine.

Anyway, Hitch is the cocky, high energy RD replacement. The resemblances between Zipp and RD are shaping up to be surface only.

I'm really flattered that MILF Dash is getting a small following in the threads. I've got another pic in the works of the same older RD with the side swept mane coming. I'll be sure to post it here when it's done. It's gonna be pretty awesome knowing Kotya's work. Stay tuned.

Not nessisarily, its not because entities engage in deception about their abilities that they do so because they lack security, it could be because using deception can manipulaye others into social considerations that can help you obtain reasources including reproductive oppurtunities. This goofy idea of arroganve being grounded in insecurity is only one psychological theory that frankly isn't even demonstrable.
>>
>>36955646
Really hyped about it, thank you so much for commissioning drawings that captivate her beauty.
>>
>>36955678
Well duh not everybody who exudes arrogance is doing it out of insecurity, but it's a pretty common occurence. It's also pretty clearly something rainbow dash experiences in pre-S3 canon. Hell, take Sonic Rainboom. Her mentality is so firmly rooted in her perception of herself that when she sees failure as a certainty, her self-worth crumbles to nothingness. I'm exaggerating of course, but it's pretty hard not to see her attempts at compensation there.

This is partly why I was so disappointed that she eventually became a wonderbolt. It would've been such an excellent character arc to see her dealing with failure and reassessing herself as a pony. She's lucky that she's genuinely one of the greatest fliers ever, because she's able to justify her "I'm only valued if I'm a winner" way of thinking. I had hoped that she'd get a chance to deconstruct that perspective, but alas.

>using deception can manipulaye others into social considerations that can help you obtain reasources including reproductive oppurtunities
She more or less never does this (at least pre-flanderization, and I'm sure this has happened once or twice in S1-2)

Okay but my issue is that youre taking an example where I would expect most anybody to be insecure. Performing for royalty and a chance to hang with your idols is certainly an extreme amount of pressure. If were using this as a metric to measure whether or not somebody is insecure relative to others we're obsetensibly all insecure and that would be ridiculous and not very convincing.
>>
>>36956204
I think you’re neglecting to acknowledge the other contestants in the best young fliers competition. None of them exemplified nearly as much anxiety as she did. Of course, the episode is from her perspective, but comparing her near-catatonic response/switching out of contestant numbers to Rarity’s genuine confidence (even if that confidence was unfounded), it seems like a pretty moot point: she is excessively arrogant (since she ties her self-worth directly to her athletic/aerobatic ability), and as a result a challenge to that ability caused excessive anxiety. Seems pretty black and white to me...

Sitting on the roof of your home in Ponyville with your love, enjoying the evening sun. A favorite tradition now for the two of you. She looks over at you, and smiles that cocky smile you've grown to love. There's mirth there that still lingers, even though she's a bit older now. She's still confident, but whereas before that smile was a show to keep others from seeing her insecurity, with your help it's become one of true love for herself, and... For you. She slowly reaches over with her forehoof and places it on top of your hand. There's no hesitation. Long gone are the days of her fearing "mushy stuff". She's not afraid to show you her affection. Her magenta eyes capture some rays of the evening sun as they look into yours, lovingly. You could get lost in them for hours. So much of the love she feels for you is portrayed there without a hint of uncertainty or reservation. You smile back at her. She's still as beautiful as the day you came to this weird world of technicolor ponies. Perhaps even moreso. How many years has it been, now? You have to think for a moment. She'd give you hell if you forgot how long ago you became mates. Oh, that's right. 10 years. For 10 years you've been with this mare. You've seen her fail to be accepted into the flight team she loves so much. You've seen her fall hard, overcome with depression. You watched her cry herself to sleep with a sense of lost purpose... But through it all you stayed by her side. She deserves that. She's always been the loyal one, bound by her element. You wanted to give that back to her. Through it all, you stayed with her. A love that had already been there all along was finally able to breathe as it bloomed from the fertile soil your friendship had become. You fell hard for each other, and that love only grew stronger throughout the years. You lean in close, and she does as well, without a second thought. Your lips touch her muzzle and she adjusts to seal the kiss. You bask in the feeling of your love, your connection. She rubs your hand with her hoof as you both savor this simplistic intimate contact. She breaks the kiss and you place your forehead against hers. Eyes closed, you smile.
"I love you, Rainbow Dash." You say.

Her scratchy, yet somehow maternal voice replies with a deep warmth...
"I love you too, Anon... Happy anniversary."

>>36960338
Good stuff anon, thank you for the daydream, I'm starting to like all this appreciation for an hypothetical older Dash, she not being afraid of mushy stuff really shows maturity.

What's something you love about Dash that you haven't seen get brought up often? I personally love how open-minded and accepting she is. She's not the most open-minded one of the mane 6 (that's Pinkie, hands down) but she's still willing to listen to what others have to tell her and give new things a fair chance. She won't always be happy about listening, but she'll still hear what you have to say without just immediately shutting down anything she doesn't like to hear.

She's also wearing a Pioneer necktie as a bonus (pioneers are soviet girlscouts)

This. She might think what you have to say is lame and she'll tell you if she thinks it is but she'll still listen and respect it

I love how even though she's this tough chick that hates mushy stuff she's still right along singing cheesy songs with her friends when they randomly break into songs because she secretly loves it and she loves her friends that much.

I'm learning how to draw ponies. Dash is the inspiration for me to go on in this wretched world. The horse skeleton is fascinating. I never really understood how their legs worked until I had a look at some images. Anyways, I love you, Dash.

Yours truly, anonymous

Rainbow Dash, you're not real, but I see you every day. You could be an infection in my mind or a pair of wings on my soul. As with all things, it's my job to place you in the context which best suits me. You will never love me like I love you. I will never utter a word that you could hear, nor will you ever truly utter one yourself.

You're not my waifu, you're an icon, and my inspiration. I'm getting better at life with you in my thoughts. And maybe that's because I'm lonely, but one day I hope I'm past that, and you'll still be a happy thought to call upon when things are dark.

Thank you for having been made.
