This is my submission for the Artist Training Grounds’s week 98 theme: draw a pony in danger. What? Dashie is totally in danger… of losing out on her pre-order for the latest Daring Do book. Poor girl. 😦
Side note: detailing furniture made of clouds is weird.
Wow, I just realized that I was so tired when I did this, I made a critical mistake. If anyone spots it, I blame Discord. 😛
((This is how much I blame Discord: ))
“Noooo! It… it was here yesterday!” Rainbow Dash tore the other drawers open, dumping the contents onto the floor before pitching them over her shoulder.
Not here, either! How could this happen? She let her head hit the top of the cabinet with a soft ‘wump’. As she stared at the floor, something shiny caught her eye. A bit, along with several of its sisters lay scattered throughout Dash’s mess. I got it! I’ll just order it again!
She tried to reach a wing down to scoop up those precious bits, but it was numb and refused. Rainbow grumbled, peering behind her as she wondered how her wings could fall asleep at a crucial time like this. “Gaaaaaaah!”
She spun around, lifting her legs and tilting her torso. They’re gone! But how?! They’re attached to me! This has to be a dream!
Dash was suddenly aware of someone laughing. Someone awfully familiar. She whirled to glare at the source. “Discord!”
He was rolling on the floor, clutching at his stomach in mock hysterics. “Oh, Rainbow Dash, you are truly entertaining when you are in a tizzy!”
“You did this!”
“Don’t be so modest! I only did half of it! The rest was your own carelessness. But since I’m such a nice guy now, I’ll help you out.”
Rainbow Dash intensified her glare. “You’re just going to mess with me.”
Discord chuckled. “Nah, kicking you while you’re down is no fun!”
“Then explain the wings!”
“Oh, well, it’s also no fun if you’re just going to run out and buy a new receipt. So here’s the deal: somewhere in your house, you have unwittingly hidden your precious wittle Daring Do receipt. Find that and you also find your wings. Oh, and no leaving the playing zone. It may not… end well for you.”
Rainbow stomped. “I don’t have time for your games!”
“But of course you do! Until you can fly again, you’ve got all the time in the world. Tata, I’ll be watching.” Discord snapped his fingers and vanished.
