Well... this is awkward
Oh wow. I've read this a number of times. But this is the first time I noticed that the Squadron Leader was Celestia's assistant.
Is it just me, or is the mare in the last two panels the same one who was Celestia's secretary in the story?
Yep! I named her "Savior Faire". It'll probably never come up in the longer story, but she was just a diplomat working for Princess Celestia, and because she felt so powerless in the face of the griffon attack she decided to join the Equestrian military and become an airship pilot. So she becomes a unicorn who can fly, while in the same incident Thunderhead becomes a pegasus who cannot fly.
How many others spotted that if I may ask?
A few people have spotted it. They also guessed (correctly) that Savoir Faire and Thunderhead are married. Yes, I really do put quite a bit of thought into characters' back stories!
the cuteness... it's... too much...
Thank you for making Celestia look like a total boss!
you make it sound hard...
enthusiasm is contagious...
No one can resist the power of filly Twilight. No one.
wait, a luna and celestia hairpin before luna even came back?
That literally would be me if I some how became a captain. xD
Maybe I am looking too deep into this, and mainly because is rereading, and maybe someone already pointed it out... but is the Pink Pegasus Cadence pre-alicorn?
That's Firefly, the previous MLP generations' equivalent of Rainbow Dash.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARUN FOR UR LIVES
That last panel screams "Awkward Moment"
Dat pose though in the last panel XD
I love the way she can get anyone so serious to act childish
Mr. Thunderhead reminds me of Admiral Nelson, who had lost in the line of duty "one eye, one arm, one life".
I now have the biggest crush on that pegasus.
And again, you make my facem uscles hurt form the big smile. I love this character so much! And Twilight's so super cute and a very believable little kid!
Like a boss
Wow, that griffin looks like the one in number 16 :3
Methinks the captain wants a foal of his own...
Me thinks yes...
Aww that's cute.
Sweet Jesus something like this has happened to us all.
hes like crapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrap
The instructor seems kind of like a man-child, or rather a stallion-child.
