The endless evening is finally over!

Some of you might remember this. I have waited for this comic for a long time.

This part is... different. I can't really explain it. I just had so much fun while I was drawing this. I noticed some annoying mistakes while I was putting the panels together. Nothing too horrible though. I used a lot more time with backgrounds this time, and at the moment they look fine to me. A part or two later they'll probably look horrible, but I'm slowly getting it right! Also, the anatomy of ponies makes more sense than ever! It's not perfect, I know, but when you compare it to the previous parts, it looks a much better, doesn't it? I still got some work to do with it. Especially with ears. Feel free to point out any visual errors you can find, but it's pretty pointless, since I'm already aware of most of them. A couple of months later, I'll probably find some more.

In short: I'm pretty satisfied with this part.

And those brown mounds next to Dash's pit, they're dirt.

Yeah, dirt.

No shit.


Big thanks to my pre-reader, :iconmudpony:!

Rainbow Dash plays the race card! It is something that is done too often in real life, sadly. There are many reasons not to like a person, like something you don't like about them as a person (disregarding appearance), but they might accuse you of racism when you don't actually care about their skin color by saying, "It's because I'm (color here), isn't it?! RACIST!!1"

So I wrote a comment based on this being purely random... and then I watched Diggy Diggy Hole.
I was impressed.

I loved this comic before I watched that though... because these are characters I have grown to love :).
I don't mean the RD and Twi from MLP:FiM, this pair are different but charming in their own way.

Rainbow Dash does what makes her happy, no matter what anypony says! (panel 13)
But then Twilight starts to get offended because of a misunderstanding.
RD puts aside her pride because she doesn't want to upset her friend. (Panel 19)

She allows herself to be vulnerable because of she cares about somepony!

Twilight was being a little mean... but in a way that was kinda flirtatious, because the last panel shows she was smiling.
I read that Twilight knew what RD meant and was playing with her emotions.

Which implies that Twilight is trying to find out how RD feels while keeping herself at a distance.
This makes sense because she is still trying to figure out how she feels, but wants to maintain an image of control :).

TL;DR I enjoyed Diggy Diggy Hole but I also really like this comic for the tension between the characters which was a lot of fun XD

Rainbow dash can't tecnically be colorist, she's full raindow! If she judges others' colors she's judging herself too. Try explaining that to her.

So, does this mean Dash has some dwarf blood in her? 'Cause I'd be more than happy to accept her into the family!
