Scrapped lines:
Rarity: Er... the... Fantastic Filly Flash? It's where you–
Rainbow Dash: Ehhh, no, I'm not flashing the audience. Do ponies even wear clothes anyway?
Rarity: That's not what– <sigh> Nevermind.

Notice: Guest comic submissions are open! Guidelines here. Deadline: January 27th, 2023.

Care to help Rainbow out here?
Me:She can do something similar to a stall, then at the last second, pull up.
Risky, but will show the judges her ability to judge things.

So... a Wronski Feint? That's kinda what she does in the actual episode, except it's not a stall (where you slow to the point your wings can't keep you up) - it's diving full speed at the ground, then ripping your wings off in the pullout like a Nieuport 28.

Long time since I've seen that episode, so I'd don't remember that part.

The Super Speed Strut and Buccaneer Blaze are actually from Rainbow's fantasies about the Gala in Ticket Master. They fit well in here, though, and technically this *is* her trying to get that ticket.

As I recall, it's the "Fantastic Filly Flash."

Go for Pinkies idea. Throw all of the buffs, benefits and boosts you can onto it, have recollection prepared just in case, and roll a Nat 20 and laugh as the DM freaks out... Kinda of like Fallout is Dragons except there's no Javolt.

The lack of clothing modesty has made several amusing moments of questioning how equine society works in pony games I've been in. Most of the time we seem to end up agreeing that putting on clothes is something more risque than taking clothes off. XD

Like socks.

I've seen "dress clubs" before in fan fiction. Really makes you think about just what kind of business Rarity's running...
Ishidan 5th Jan 2017, 11:50 AM Rarity's side hustle edit delete reply
Oh darling. The fact that canon Rarity is what she is makes it so much more fun for the fandom to corrupt her.

Look at this one, for example. A Thief undercover.

Most I've worn in a game was a full set of plate mail, cold weather gear, glasses, and a tin foil hat that was duck taped to my helmet.

The least amount I wore (where I actually wore some) was a stiletto on my head as I 'impersonated' a unicorn... I was soon set ablaze by actual unicorns. Easiest five bits I ever made.

I'm minded of the Ferengi, who consider women wearing clothing to be risque, as it invites men to undress them.

I don't recall whether their men wore clothing for practical reasons of their own or because of other species refusing to trade with them otherwise.

As an old-time Trekie (That's what we named ourselves) I was kind of pleased by the idea that Ferengis think clothed women are sexy because I like a well-dressed woman.
Oh and "off-topic". I forgot that part.
Anvildude 5th Jan 2017, 11:45 AM edit delete reply
For Ferengi, it could also be tied into the fact that clothes are a material good, and therefore cost money.

If you don't have to wear clothes, it makes little sense to spend money on them. If you can and do wear clothes, that suggests that you're affluent enough to afford them, as well as cleaning and repair costs, which to a Ferengi is probably rather sexy itself.

Sorta like how in days past, fat women were more attractive to human men because being fat meant they had access to food, and were more capable of childbirthing safely.

Heck, they even have burlesque shows involving "dressteases", where the naughty woman on stage starts nude and slowly starts putting stuff on, until you see her in the titillating garb of... a regular business suit. Or a conservative dress (not even spaghetti straps, but fully covering the shoulders and everything).

The Pathfinder mod Ponyfinder is set in a world where Pony society is in decline and humanoids are the rising dominant race. I've decided my pegasus monk, who normally just wears a vest, has taken to wearing a rump-covering cape while outside Pony territory, just to stop the snide comments from humanoids.

Given the omnipresence of firearms, my earth pony Doc is always wearing armor. Given the general tendency to assume someone walking around in armor attracts trouble, he also wears clothes over his armor.

Clothes do have a few nice advantages, like basic weather resistance and pockets to hold your stuff.

Let's just say that if you see *this*, you're going to find yourself quickly re-evaluating exactly what kind of sleepover Twilight invited you to.

if this was the Equestria Girls version i'd be all for it.

isn't the equestria girls version an underage high school student

BTW Spud: You misspelled "Buccaneer."

Gah, it was even correct in the transcript, so I must've made the mistake in a last-minute retype when I was changing balloons around. Hate it when that happens.

Don't forget that, in the original Olympic games (the ones in ancient Greece), the contestants raced, wrestled, etc. in the nude.
Not a stitch to encumber them.
I don't think women were allowed in the stands. Not a question of modesty. They were excluded from public events as a matter of course.

Rainbow Inverted Hurricane? As she leave her rainbow signal, going at enough speed to make it seems like a inverted hurricane, the big part around the stadium, until it reduce and then she enter inside.

Summersault loop? or whateevr
whatever Firefly (g1 pony who dash is based off) signature trick.

Here's thought. Could Rainbow do a Sonic Rainboom into a Buccaneer Blaze and if so what would that look like?
Derpmind 6th Jan 2017, 4:07 AM edit delete reply
Some things are /too/ awesome to be seen on screen.
Archeo Lumiere 6th Jan 2017, 6:57 AM edit delete reply
See? No. Describe? Possibly. Explain? Heck Yeah! It would take some precarious setup, but hypothetically, if a long column of cumulonimbus cloud was set up along the descent angle and trajectory of the sonic rainboom, and leaving some space at the bottom to detach from the clouds before the bang, Dash could possibly pick up a charge in her rear hooves, while simultaneously priming the cloud to detonate at the moment she breaks the color barrier. This would lace the entire shock wave upon detonation, along with her resultant trail, with lightning. Yeah, that's awesome. Done wrong, however, and she electrocutes herself and fails the boom. Painfully.

It would look like an episode being pulled out of the air for causing epilepsy attacks on children.

Calling it now: This results in Rainbow performing a Sonic Rainboom and the PCs going back in time (or maybe going to the past of an alternate timeline). They have to quickly figure out the rules of this time travel (do we not interfere, or did we already interfere, in which case, we don't dare not interfere), and in the process, they come away with more knowledge of the shadow organization via the occurances here. For example, AJ could unravel the connection between the organization and the local hospital (using footage from that recent episode where her younger self was a liar and Big Mac talked too much). Or she might be horrified to learn her own family is involved when her younger self goes to Manehatten and sits in at a meeting of the cabal. And before she can come to grips with it, Rainbow's younger Sonic Rainboom covers the sky and they all come back, armed with new insights on just how deep it all goes. Think Crichton learning about Katratzi towards the end of Farscape.
