Flying Lesson by Graystripe64 Flying Lesson by Graystripe64
"Ready to start flyin', Squirt?"
"You know it, Mom!"

Here's some Firefly and Rainbow Dash mother/filly goodness! :aww: This relationship needed some revisiting cuz they're just so cute! Firefly taught Rainbow everything she knows, and they started their first official flying lessons at a rather early age for l'il Rainbow, who couldn't be more eager! :la:

Hope you enjoy! Expect a little more of the Dash family in the future ;)

Grew up on G1s and Firefly was my FIRST PONY. I love her to death! So I am TOTALLY behind this idea that Firefly is Dash's mom!

Yay! It shall be done!
The story is based almost entirely off of the Dash family Photo description and your 'headcannon', so I'm giddy to see that I could use this!
:D

The levels of cute here are giving me all kinds of diabetes. :XD:

I love how both their expressions are so close to matching. It definitely reinforces the idea Firefly taught Dash everything she knows.

Wheredid the idea come from that Firefly is RD's mom ? Was she in the crowd with RD and her dad during that flashback in "games ponies play" ? Cause I don't remember seeing her there.

The personalities of the Friendship is Magic ponies are based on G1 ponies. On Lauren Fauts's interpretation of them, to be precise.
That means Firefly is Rainbow Dash's spiritual mother. Fans interpreted that as Firefly also being her biological mother.

Faust has actually said that she envisioned FF as RD's mother once as well.
