Rainbow Dash is torn between fulfilling her dreams and acting on her feelings for Twilight Sparkle. Does Twilight not feel the same way, or is she simply oblivious to Rainbow's intentions?

The pacing really feels off in that last panel... I'll have to look into that when I get some time.

:bulletgreen: The "My Little Pony", "Friendship is Magic" franchises belong to Hasbro and "Friendship is Magic" was created by Lauren Faust.
:bulletgreen: Building Bridges is a fan fic, written by Cloudy Skies.
:bulletgreen: Art is done by ~Somepony.

Yeah, Dashie, this was not a very well thought-out plan. 'Shy nearly blew it for you. It's a good thing she's so embarrassed by her library history.

Yep her friends are helping her to study for sure :D.

At first when I saw Fluttershy hiding I thought it was an allusion to some 'adult reading' she was embarrassed about.
AJ seemed like she might not be in on it though... not sure. She did bring a mighty large amount of food!

Shule123 Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2013

I'm sorry, but I'm confuzzled. What's going on with Fluttershy in that panel? I can't quiet make it out due to eye problems + broken glasses + no contacts. Sorry, and you don't have to explain if it's too much trouble, I'm just curious.

simply oblivious to Rainbow's intentions, i dont see how she doesnt notice since rainbow is rather Obvious but it is twilight, she isnt good with these relationship ordeals...This is good though :D
Somepony Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012
And we hope our naive little bookworm never changes. ^_^
0202inferno Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012
Amen to that :D
chrisli75 Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012
Wow great job! im sure this will be like Past Sins, and im sure it will be as beloved as that story
Just asking, how long does it take to make a page?
Somepony Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012
About 3 days to a week. 3 days if I can reuse stuff like backgrounds, longer for each new background I have to do. Also depends on my mood. Thanks!

Is there a reason Rainbow Dash is lacking her cutie mark in the second to last panel?

Great comic. It's so show-like. Can't wait to see how it continues. :D

Holy. Jumping. Heck.

That is the tastiest stack of apple-related yumyums I have ever seen. PLEASE tell me you got that from a resource pack of vectors, or I will be forced to question your sanity.
Somepony Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012
... it only took me a few hours to do.

And if you're not questioning my sanity already, I'd have to question your judgement! Ahahaha.
TheOneButcher Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012
Well duh, it's obviously something every Pegasus has read or it's something Rainbow Dash gave Fluttershy once. Rainbow doesn't want to turn around because the truth of the matter is written within her face.
splendidsquirrel Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012
The Chaser and Bolt book was studied at Cloudsdale Flight Academy, which is why both RD and FS know the name. It is also why Dash picked it up so fast, even though she wasn't paying much attention. Both Fluttershy and Applejack have realized Rainbow's feelings for Twilight, so they are trying their best not to give in and tell Twilight.
MERKLEYtheDRUNKEN Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
...and I thought Chaser and Blastbold were some kind of famous homosexuals that every pony in town knows...except of Twilight of course, cause she's an egghead!
HikariKinawa Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2013
I also thought so ^^;
Additionally the sentences above made it suspicious. "Chaser and Bolt - Chase her and bolt"
I thought it would be some kind of inside among pegasus ponies
MERKLEYtheDRUNKEN Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2013
...well, I hope we'll gonna see it in the next panels, if there will ever be some...
...maybe :iconsomepony: is gonna make the rest as flash movies ^w^

...I'm not gonna read that fic until SP says he's not gonna finish it B3
Mckayr12 Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
so, um, this comic is taking forever, i was wondering if their was anything anyone else could do to help speed it up?
ZombieMonkey7 Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012
Love fluttershy's expressions :)
Ragnarokia Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Fluttershy's shyness is always cute.
Makavcio Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012
Don't want to be the hater here but Flut's reaction is kinda off. Nothing either sudden or drastic enough happened to explain her transition from panel 3 to 5. It looks more like "duck&cover" than typical for her mixture of embarrassment and startle. I guess it will be justified in further pages though.
It is in part because you haven't read the fanfic it is about. Quote from the scene

""Am I the only pony in Ponyville who hasn't heard of them?" Twilight blinked and cocked her head, almost annoyed. "I mean, no offense Fluttershy, but I know you've never checked out any books except those-"
Twilight caught herself, noticing that Fluttershy had her head down on ground level and was blushing furiously. "-books," she finished, lamely. "What's with this book anyway?" she asked. " (Written by Cloudy skies, link in the description of comic)

The fact that twilight had to catch herself makes before saying the specific genre makes it seem like it is a type that would embarrass fluttershy like some trashy romance novels or some such thing. Well this has so far done an adequate job of showing the story perhaps a panel with it shown of Twilight having a blank expression when she realized what she was about to say between the panels with " but I know you've never checked out any books except those-" and "-books" would have been more noticeable. I can easily see how to a person who haven't read the fic that it could be misinterpretted (I myself sat there for a few seconds before it clicked in)
also drawing the blush on Fluttershy would show that it is embarrassment not fear.
Somepony Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013
Actually you've got a great point there. It's poor conveyance on my part, but I'll definitely look into fixing these issues up later.

Ugh, this is why I need to see not only comments, but replies to comments in the messages area, or I'll miss good ones like these.
MazzoDra Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012
Fluttershy is far too cute. Especially in the bottom left scene.
Kryptchild Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Fluttershy and AJ tots know what's going on...

Or at least Fluttershy probably does.
frits191 Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012
Ah yes, it does continue!
Thank you ;)
