F:E Fates -- Rainbow Dash by tomcullen F:E Fates -- Rainbow Dash by tomcullen
The final installment in the fates of FO:E's Ministry Mares: Rainbow Dash, of the Ministry of Awesome!

I lot of folks were wondering about this one, as Kkat never really addressed Rainbow's ultimate fate. Finally, I chose to go with this scene, our final glimpse of Rainbow Dash before she faded from the story, and from history...

I know it's weird, having a Rainbow-shaped hole in the history of the Equestrian Wasteland, but I actually prefer not knowing. It's kinda poetic...As hard as Rainbow worked to make history, the break every record, to have her name screamed to the heavens, it somehow seems right that in the end she should just...vanish.

Of all the pieces I've done, this one has changed the most, from concept to execution. I hope you're all as satisfied with it as I am.

Fallout: Equestria belongs to Kkat, MLP:FIM belongs to Lauren Faust.

Technically speaking, no one knows what happened to her... we assume it was awesome. >.>

I just saw the entry! Thank you so much...I'm so glad you understand! (And I hope you understand why I ultimately decided not to read your headcanon, even though I'm sure it's brilliant...and even though it was not an easy decision!) 

You're awesome, Kkat!

I think that Rainbow beat Glida and probably nearly got herself killed checking on everyone.  As far as she could determine, everypony was dead, with the exception of Sweetie, who was missing.  Even Celestia nad Luna both seemed to have died.  How can you remain loyal when you are seemingly the last pony left in a ruined world? How can you be the hero when you have failed everypony

I think she flew up, up, up as far as she could, further than any pegasi had done before, then slammed herself into the ground as fast as she could... just to be sure.

Shadowbolts never die, there just missing in action!

Not like I stole that or anything.

I never looked at it like that before, Rainbow Dash wanting eternal glory and she vanishes into thin air. When I first read FE, I really expected Rainbow Dash to make a dramatic entrance in the final chapters as a ghoul, but I was left a little disappointed.
