"Okay everyone," she started, "and-a-one, and-a-two, and—"

As Fluttershy conducted, the birds in the tree began to sing. The eloquence and rich harmony was perfect, with the exception of one aspect.

Fluttershy directed the group to stop for a moment, so she could have a word with one of the blue jays, who was still lost in his own little world, still singing the tune as best he could. He had been trying really hard, really, but he just wasn't getting it down.

Fluttershy flew over next to him, startling him a little.

"Um, excuse me, sir? Um, I don't mean to be rude… or hurt your feelings or anything… but, your rhythm is just a teeny tiny bit off."

He respectfully accepted her criticism, recognizing what he needed to change. He nodded in agreement, signaling he was ready to try again.

Fluttershy gracefully glided back down in front of the group, and raised her hooves, ready to start the tune over.

But, just as she was about to lead the procession in another round of singing, she noticed a faint sound in the distance.

It was the sound of crying. Somepony was in the meadow with her, and her birds, and that certain somepony was crying, quite profusely.

"Oh, oh no. That's not good. Um… will you all wait here for a moment, please?"

Fluttershy made her way to the source of the sobbing.


It wasn't fair.

How could Twilight Sparkle not understand what she was telling her? A new pony with such a talent with magic finally comes to Ponyville, and not even that brilliant-minded pony could help her.

"It's-it's not fair," she muttered in between sobs, "How could she not get it?"

Rainbow Dash was probably just going to have to stay the way she was… forever.

"It's not fair! Why do I have to be born this way, when everypony else is just fine?"

A faint voice butted in.

"Um… excuse me, Rainbow Dash? I mean, I don't want to bother you or anything…. but are you okay?"

"I'm fine," she lied, "Just go bother somepony else, okay?"

Fluttershy could see Dash was being defensive. She only wanted to help.

"Sorry, Rainbow Dash, but you don't look okay. Don't you think talking about whatever it is that has you down will make you feel better?"

Dash's frustration continued to mount.

"I said I'm FINE!"

Fluttershy cringed, shutting her eyes, and turning her head.

"… Rainbow Dash, please. I know you're upset… and I only want to help you."

That was it. First, she finally gets up the courage to talk to Twilight about her feelings, only to be met with complete ignorance, and now, this pony had to see her in this state, sobbing like a little filly in the meadow.

Sobbing like a little…. girl.

"UGH! I said leave me alone!"

Fluttershy whimpered as Dash screamed at her.

"I said I'm fine, and I just want to be alone, so just BUZZ OFF!"

Rainbow couldn't take this anymore. She quickly went from her sitting position to a crouched one, ready to blast off into the clouds.

"Can't anypony get any privacy around here?"

Fluttershy attempted to apologize, "I'm sorry, Dash. I didn't mean to…"

Rainbow looked Fluttershy in the eye. "Save it."

And with that, Rainbow Dash launched up into the air with as much force as she could muster, accidentally knocking Fluttershy down, who was standing just a bit too close.

Now it was Fluttershy who was crying.

As she lay there, now burdened with both physical pain, and the pain of knowing one of her dear friends was upset, all she could do was think to herself, "What could be wrong with Dash…?"


So, I know this is LONG overdue, but here is Part III of my story, Rainbow Dash TG. Also, I know this chapter is a little shorter than the others I've written so far, so sorry about that. I'm trying to keep with the simplicity of the show in this writing, which means far less detail-oriented writing.

On a personal note, my being transgender has been on the back burner since April, but I'm finally ready to openly pursue it again. I'm hoping to start hormones in about a week, so I'm really happy about that.

Also, if you like the way I write, but are hoping for something with a little more depth, I highly suggest you check out my other pony story: My Little Pony - Friendship is Malice.
Part I of that story can be found here:

Thanks to everyone reading. I hope to continue writing this as much as I am able.

Also, please take some time to consider donating to my own, actual transition. Even if it's just $1, every little bit helps me out immensely:

UPDATE: HOLY BUCKETS!! I wake up, and check dA, and I find my story ON THE FRONT PAGE! This a personal best, so I'm quite happy about it. Thanks so much everypony for reading! More chapters coming soon!

Very interesting, and anything with Fluttershy is good in my book (within reason).

But a question: What is up with the huge spaces between the lines? I find it rather unusual and even a little silly in my personal opinion, but maybe it was just due to possible shortness of the chapter, I dunno.

Man, this was really hard to find. I hope part IV is not hidden somewhere on this site somewhere for us to uncover.

Just add me to your watch list, and you'll get a notification when it comes up.

Why was it so hard to find?

Of course twilight dosen't understand. how could she she feels right with her. It is unfair for rainbow to sugest that she should just understand instantly.
