Rainbow Dash is one happy, carefree pony.
Swimming through the blue.
What was that.
Owlowiscious coming to get you!
"C'mon, try and keep up!"
You think you can beat me?
I'll show you who the best flyer is!
Rainbow Dash vs. Owlowiscious.
Flying freely in the sky.
Rainbow Dash flying happily through the sky.
What? Owlowiscious is evolving!
Congratulations! Your Owlowiscious evolved into WINOWISCIOUS!
Rainbow is shocked with Winowysius
Now, this is just strange.
She spins Dash right round...
Bit on the creepy side
And getting creepier by the second.
Angel's head giving Dash a visit.
This is why you should never take drugs, kids.
"Okay, this is officially beyond weird now and right on down to freaky town."
Trying to figure this all out.
AHH! It's Freddy Opal!
Rainbow Dash falling through clouds remind you of anypony else
Remind you of a certain yellow mare.
And the fabrics of this reality seem to melt away!
It's a dream.
Rainbow Dash sleeps in a tree
One screechy, sratchy kitty!
The four pets looking at Dash up the tree.
Upon waking up, and see all the pets.
I was busy napping that I fell asleep.
There they come.
Twilight and Pinkie with their pets.
"Sincerest apologies, Rainbow, ..."
"...if our pets were bothering you."
"Say you're sorry, Opal."
"What are you all doing out here?"
"Same time every week."
"I thought you knew."
"You didn't know?"
Oh dear, she didn't know?
Fluttershy isn't so sure about this now.
Owlowiscious is back!
"We were totally gonna invite you!"
Pinkie explaining things.
Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Gummy.
"Y'got somethin' on yer ear, sugarcube.."
Alligators have lips and Pinkie can dislocate her foreleg.
"Please don't be mad at us!"
"I'm not mad. You all are right."
I don't have a pet...
... don't worry about that!
Rainbow Dash's friends are playing with their pets...
...while Dashie continues her nap that the pets interrupted.
But then, a thought occured to her.
Her nap was interrupted from the noise.
"Hey, now wait a minute!"
"Just because I don't have a pet now, doesn't mean I never want a pet."
You want a pet, Rainbow Dash!?
Fluttershy is excited that Rainbow Dash wants a pet.
"You really want a pet? Really? 'cause I've got so many wonderful choices at my house."
"And I know you'll just love them!"
Uh, Fluttershy, I don't think you're carrying her off from the ground.
Might as well just give us some extra lift.
"Now, Rainbow my dear, I cannot express my delight..."
"I can't wait to get started,..."
"... but first let me set a few rules."
"It's of utmost importance that the pet that I get is something that's..."
"Awesome and cool!"
"Awesome. Cool. Got it!"
"I need something real fast..."
"... like a bullet to keep up with me."
"Sure, how about a bunny?"
"They're cutsey and wootsie and quick as can be."
"Cutsey? Wutsey? Have you even met me?"
"Rainbow, have faith..."
Fluttershy striking a pose.
"Somewhere in here is a pet..."
"... that will get you!"
"Sky is good, I'd like it to fly."
"Really? Because I think this widdle puddy tat has your name written all over it!"
"Oh look, he likes you."
Did I really think of getting this cat?
"I have so many wonderful choices..."
"... for you to decide!"
"There are otters..."
"... and seals..."
"Otters and seals do not fly."
"But I've seen this particular seal catch ten feet of air when he breaches the water!"
"Wait, there must be a pet here..."
"... that will fit the ticket!"
"How about a ladybug..."
"... or a cute cricket?"
"Bigger, and cooler!"
Go away tortoise!
"I just got a thing in that tree, Dash!"
"Meet your new fabulous pet..."
"A flying squirrel."
"So, like I was saying."
"Fluttershy Pal, this won't cut it.."
"I need a pet..."
"to keep up with me..."
"With coolness that defies..."
"I'm sensing you want an animal that can fly."
"... plenty of wonderful creatures..."
"... who soar in the sky!"
"Like a sweet hummingbird or a giant monarch butterfly!"
"Better, but cooler."
Hey, I can be cool.
"How about an owl, or a wasp or a toucan?"
"There are so many wonderful creatures..."
"... are the likes of that."
"There are falcons and eagles."
"There are both quite regal."
"Perhaps what you need is a..."
"...dark and mysterious bat."
"Now you're talkin'!"
Browsing the aviary pets
"The bat would be awesome."
"But the wasp I'm digging too."
"Do you have something in a yellow-striped..."
"I've got a hot pink flamingo,..."
"... just dying to meet you."
"What to do, what to do?"
"There's really just one way."
"To find out which animal's best."
"Hold a contest..."
"... of speed!"
"Agility and guts!" (Don't worry I'm light as a feather.)
"That will put the pet to the..."
"Don't forget style, that should be considered"
"Then we'll know who's best of the litter."
"The one who is awesome and cool."
"Just like me!"
"Can't settle for less..."
"... cause I'm the best!"
"So a contest we will see..."
"Who's the number one, greatest, perfectest pet..."
"... in the world for me!" (They both make an awesome duet.)
"May the games begin!"
And may the best pet win!
It's game time!
The animals lined up for the competition,
Rainbow Dash's friends cheering on.
Be silent, spectators!
Team Dash wants cool and awesome.
"Well, we'll just see about that!"
"If any of you don't think you can handle it, bow out now before you humiliate yourself in front of your peers."
"This competition isn't for the weak. You'd better be prepared to..."
"...step up your game!"
"You call that flapping?"
"There's only room on Team Dash for one of you, and my future pet needs to be able to take it to the extreme!"
Pets need care and attention
Twilight getting licked by Winona
And breath mints!
Winona just wants to share the love.
"Now, you just pay attention, and try your best, and-"
"Seriously, Fluttershy! The turtle?"
"What did you bring that thing here for?"
"Technically he's a tortoise, ..."
"...and he's always dreamed of being somepony's pet."
"He just wants a chance to compete, he won't get in the way. You won't even know he's here. "
How about "no"?
"Oh, just let him try."
"Ugh, but there's no way he can possibly keep up. Look at him!"
"It won't hurt to let him try."
Fluttershy giving an awkward smile
"But don't say I didn't warn you! This isn't a game, you know!"
"Alright, now these games will determine which one of you has the most important qualities I'm looking for in a pet."
Speed, like the Hotwheels.
Agility, Like TRON.
Coolness, Awesomness, and Radicalness. Twilight: Aren't they all the same thing?
"You would think that, Twilight."
Twilight can't be Dash's pet.
The race begins.
"Could be more speedy."
Get ready for a big blast!
The rainboom without the color.
Well this is embarrassing.
Now that's speed!
The main ponies cheering the pets on
All the other animals have reached the line...
...while the tortoise takes his step.
That's just sad.
This is the time for me to prove that I am worthy to be Dash's pet!
Once again he fails.
"Wanna know the opposite of agility? That."
And the winner for agility is the hummingbird!
"Yeah baby, now that's what I call agility!"
"Don't leave me hanging."
"I'm gonna have to shave a point off your score for that."
This makes me a sad hummingbird.
"Which of you has the guts to try and get Opal's favorite toy away from her?"
This is going to be good.
You dare take away my toy mouse...
...and you'll face the wrath of my claws!
Oh, someone who's brave enough to face me? We'll see about that.
No, you will not.
Opal is hypnotized by the butterfly.
The cat has fallen.
"Now that takes guts!"
Tank used Withdraw! Opal used Fury Swipes!
Hummingway knows fencing.
Who would have thunk that Rainbow Dash considers intellectualness a style?
The Bald Eagle playing the sport of curling.
Rainbow Dash always dresses in style!
"Any pet of mine's gotta look good, 'cause you gotta make me look good!"
Guess picture flashes scare the poor tortoise.
"Could be cooler."
"Not what I had in mind."
Is this is a cool sound?
"I can't hear you!"
This is a cool sound. Can I be your pet now, Dash?
Screw all you animals! I have the coolest sound!
"Now that's a cool sound!"
Is this awesome?
Is this more awesome?
I can stand on one leg! Can I be your pet?
"Could be more awesome."
I think we all know who the winner for awesomeness is.
"Hohoho, yeah, that is awesome!"
"Uh, you did that already. That's pretty much all you can do, huh?"
Am I talented enough to be your pet, Dash?
I forgot the wings.
Is this your card? Or do I look good in this hat?
Sorry. It doesn't match.
Let me show you a real talent!
I can make a shadow puppet of a duck!
I can make a rabbit too! Isn't that radical?
Beyond the impossible.
Sorry, wasp. She got bored.
I will show you what real talent is!
This is for you, glasses!
"Whoa! That was truly awesome!"
"But... I'm afraid this is the radicalness competition, so I'm gonna have to take some points off."
That's quite the performance.
Another failure for the tortoise.
Um... Listen Turtle.
Tortoise. ":( whatever.'
"You've had your fun, but I think you and I both know who made the cut and who didn't."
Does that mean I can be your pet?
They did it.
The chosen competitors.
They all look amazing!
"I mean... A for effort and everything, you gave it your best shot."
"Maybe I've got a gold star sticker around here somewhere you can have."
"But, seriously, go home. You're starting to creep me out."
You understand, right?
"So, anyway, ..."
"...you're all outstanding competitors, but there can only be one of you who's number one."
"So the final, tie-breaking contest...
"...going to be..."
"Pause for dramatic effect."
"A race against me!"
"Through Ghastly Gorge!"
"Dun dun dun!"
"Actually, Ghastly Gorge isn't scary."
"It's fun. Heh. I've flown through it a million times myself, so, obviously I'll be at the front of the pack.
This is going to be bad.
If you make it across the finish line with me gets to be my pet. Is that clear?
The four finalists.
The fifth member appears?
So, what can I do now?
"Try to keep up!"
Zigzagging like a professional.
You can't stop me, trees!
Neither do you, rock!
It's tunneling time!
Entering the first obstacle.
Must brace through this wind!
That wind is so strong, it'll blow your wing membranes clean off!
Just keep looking good.
Tank after falling off a cliff.
Vines?! No worry!
"C'mon, slowpokes! You wanna win, don't ya?"
You don't stand a chance, spiky vines!
The eagle has lan... err is tangled.
How can I get through this?
Using my echo location. Like a boss!
Screw you guys! I'm gonna win.
"Oh! I forgot to tell you!"
"Watch out for the Quarray eels! They don't like it when you get too close to their nests."
What is up with that blue pegasus getting us into these dangerous situations?
"Try to get past us."
That can't be pleasant for either of them...
Tastes like America!
I lost my head!
Oh maybe not. Phew.
Seems small owls have a thing against being killed by large, scaly monsters.
"Easy, peasy, one-two-threesy! Right you guys?"
Watch out, Dash!
There's still time to get to the finish line!
Oh, that's why.
Must... break free...
Flying off into the sun.
Scared and alone.
"I don't wanna end up stuck here..."
"Somepony! Anypony! Help me!"
A miserable Dash.
When she was on the verge of tears...
...she hears something that sounds like rescue.
Rainbow Dash is happy with the thought that she might be rescued.
But once she sees Tank, Dash's hope was lost.
"I'm gonna be stuck here with the most annoying turtle in the world!"
Tank is doing something.
Rainbow has lost all hope.
Well, these flyers made it to the finish line, but where's Rainbow Dash?
So what happened to Rainbow?
"Where's Rainbow Dash?"
Somepony got her glass nicked twice!
"There's been an avalanche in there!"
Everypony is worried over what has happened to Dash.
Pinkie notices something in the distance.
And he's carrying something on his back.
A blue Pegasus yonder!
Moving slowly and slowly.
"Maybe we'd better go meet him half way."
There we go
And Tank crosses the finish line
Rainbow's friends are happy that Rainbow is safe.
"Way to go, little guy."
Not everypony worries about dust like you do, Lady Rarity.
Allergic Rarity is allergic.
And the one time somepony actually sneezes Rainbow says nothing
"It sure was, if'n it means Rainbow gets to have her own little critter just like the rest of us from now on."
Tank looks up at Rainbow Dash.
"What you did... I owe you one."
"Your new pet is over here waiting for you."
I am the winner!
Oh, well. Guess I won't be your pet then.
Oh... right... yeah. That.
"What's the matter?"
"You got your perfect pet, right?"
"It can fly and it's not a squirrel! Should we sing about it again?"
"A falcon sure looks good on ya, Rainbow."
Smile for the Camera
Nothing to be afraid of.
"The falcon sure does looks cool."
Oh yeah I'm awesome!
"But I said whoever crosses the finish line with me gets to be my pet."
"You did! You did say that!"
"She did say that, that was the rule!"
"And the only racer who crossed the finish line with me, was the one who stopped to save me when I needed help."
I think I forgot that part.
Tank is rewarded.
Who doesn't think nose-rubbing is super cute?
This makes me a sad falcon.
"But what about the..."
The Falcon accepts his loss gracefully.
Rainbow now has a new pet.
The tortoise is happy.
"Spike. Take a letter."
Rainbow telling the lesson she learned.
Oh, just me playing with this toy mouse.
I think that toy mouse is mine.
No! It's mine!
Sneaky turtle... er... tortoise.
Wait. Where did my toy mouse go?
Whatever, I give up.
"Gesundheit. You just can't stop that little guy."
"He's like a... like a... Tank!"
But you didn't want a pet that couldn't fly because it would keep you grounded and hold you back.
Time for another Pony Pet Playdate!
"C'mon, Tank! We're gonna be late for our very first Pony Pet Playdate!"
My Little Tortoise: Steampunk is Magic.
