confound these ponies, they drive me to read comics instead of do homework.
Damn, now this increased my feelings for Dash even more so than when she had her wing stuck under a rock. DX
D'aww, Dashie D:Now, if you'd chosen the Falcqn instead of the tortoise..
Awww...And Pinkie's work ethic is pretty much how I imagine it to be: Awesome :P
The combination of that pinkie pie and the last panel is an intensely potent combo of a laugh inducer. Why is madmax so wonderful?
*le hoof hug Rainbow Dash*T_T
NO! Not sad Dashie! Those tears, dat icecream...
But she has an epic house in the sky
I know she'd be reluctant, but /gives Rainbow Dash a hug and offers to invite her to the movies to (at least partially) make up for all that
Well at least dash is caring and- oh, wait.
Hahahaha, that was good! I love you, Madmax.
Poor Dash needs a hug.
Inb4 hundreds of people rush to RD's aid, myself probably included, because I know that feel, pony.
I would laugh but Dash is my favorite pony, so... I feel bad for her than anything else.
You heartless bastards. That's not how you treat the embodiment of Loyalty...Don't listen to them, Dash. There are many of us who like you, shortcomings and all.
awwww dont cry dashie.....you still got the job dont you....?
A funny comic but I have to throw this out there, does csimadmax really need a dedicated post for each comic? They are good but out of my comic collection I can't say I like them anymore than all the other great comics that fan artists have made. I always like reading the comics and it's actually kind of disappointing when there's only one in the post, considering how many are submitted.
... And now I feel compelled to write a story about Dash trying to improve her life by going back to school and adopting Scootaloo as her sister.
Oh Pinkie pie.
Poor Rainbow Dash... at least she has her own ice cream brand. But how does she make it...?*cue secret steampunk ice cream factory in cloud home*
Poor Dash...She needs cheering up, unless it was a bad dream or something...oh well she needs cheering up anyway.
Don't worry Dash. You'll always have Scootaloo to keep you warm.You know... except when she's hanging out with the CMC... which you can't join because you have a cutie mark...
:(Dash needs hugs...
=( i still love you dashie
Oh Pinkie Pie. <3
Ha! This would be funnier if I wasn't crying and eating Hagen Daas right now. =/
@Calamus_DashI have a pile of AP Calculus just gathering dust on my work table, too. (Confound these ponies...)Eeewwughh...@White InkBrohoof /)(\
ahhhh poor dashie :(
thats really sad..
@Party Favors DO IT BRONY!
;; COME HERE DASH, YOU NEED LUFF AND SNUGGLES, STAT. *pounces and huggles her like crazy*
Apple Jacks, anyone?
I lol'd.And then I made myself sad. D:/hugs RD
I feel bad for her, but... I still laughed really hard at this.
she still has the coolest house.
Damn Pinkie, making me laugh out loud during such a sad comic... >_>
Angry Fat Lady from talk show,"Damn bitch, you need to your life together and get your G.E.D. and stuff, mhmm"*snaps fingers*
i'm going to go give Rainbow Dash a hug
Hahaha.....aww, I made myself sad :(
Hügen-Dash; the best ice cream just got 20% cooler.God, that was terrible
But, she can't be a complete screwup. After all, she was put in charge of weather control in a tiny, backwater village— Oh, wait.Damn, Dash. Just... Damn.
D'awww, sad Rainbow is breaking my heart :'(
It's okay! She, Fluttershy, Applejack, Apple Bloom, Big Mac, and Scootaloo can all hang out as part of the "No Known Living Parents" club. Kick out the Apple family and they can be the "Presumed Orphan" or "No Known Family" club!Or, hang out with Fluttershy and Pinkie as part of the "Gilda's Shitlist" club.
@Don't Call Me Brony (Please)Yeah but that was because of celestia manipulating her career as part of getting the mane 6 at the right place at the right time (when nightmare moon returns)... though that's probably not much of a comfort.
I found this downright hilarious and just a wee bit sad, probably cause I'm not a big Dash fan (she is a great pony, just not one of my favorites).
Oh Pinkie Pie, you wonder why you're my favorite?Poor Dash, I'd probably hit the ice cream hard too if I knew my friends said this to me.
Wheelie the Earth Pony was born without hooves. Her big sister, Pale Rose, has pushed her in a wheelchair since their mother passed away. Pale Rose promised Wheelie that she would do the best she could to give her little sister a normal life.This was supposed to be Wheelie's first Sisterhooves Social. You could see the excitement in her eyes.Applejack ruined it.
@JamesYou're forgetting the side-to-side head motion.
@CoolblueBTW, 127 hours reference is my headcanon, and shouldd be yours too.
@dmtacticalyes. posts dedicated to madmax are pretty much tradition at this point.
@MasqueradeAP calculus?.........I know this seems like a strange question, but do you happen to be from New York?
@MikeI'm cool with it, I don't run the blog. I just don't see it as being necessary.
Uh oh, Dash is feeling depressed and rejected, I've seen enough Suicidash fics to know where this is going.As much as Dash says she's awesome you can really twist the facts to make her life sound sad. Apparently has natural talent, but couldn't finish her education, then she could only get a job managing weather for a small town. Undisciplined, seems lazy and is an underachiever, kinda like a lot of the people on the internet :P (guess I can point at myself with that too).But, then again she's saved Equestria twice, and done at least 2 Rainbooms. She just doesn't appear to be going anywhere in life, she's stuck in the mud. Her only real dream (Wonderbolts) would take her out of the main cast so it's doubtful she will achieve it during the show's run. Maybe they'll have her win some big one off races or have her be responsible for an important rare Canterlot weather task, if not she'll probably stay stuck in the mud.
Dammit Pinkie, get back to work.This comic would be all humor if it weren't for that last panel. That expression... Dash needs major hugs right now.
Hilariously sadorable :) :(
@dmtacticalNo; not neccesary.But always a delight regardless...I'm going to look up 'foraminifera' on Wikipedia now, just to prove a point.
@dmtacticalI completely agree. I see no reason why this shouldn't be with the other comics.
@Sgt ByrdDashie strikes me as the kind of person who keeps talking about their accomplishments and how awesome they are because it's the only way they can believe they have any worth... kinda like me ;_;
@UrthdiggerI'd be lying if I said I didn't see some of that in myself too.The people who are loudest about how great they are, tend to say it more for themselves than the rest of the world.
Wh- why am I not laughing?
Hmmm... Not sure if should laugh or feel bad.
Aw poor dash. I would give her company and a friend to hang out with. We will have Dash Day Every day :)
Poor rainbow. Wanna beat me at a race?? I'll try my hardest. If I win I be sorry...
@Sgt ByrdIf anyone wants me, I'll be joining Dash with a pint of cookie dough Hugen Dash. I'm awesome, really ;_;
Poor dashie... 20% more alone.
@Urthdiggerno you're not man don't lie:P you're awesome enough to be a brony, so at least you have taste, that's part of being awesome.
@UrthdiggerMmmmmm... Hugen Dash... *Homer drool*
awww poor Dashie =[ well now we know why Rainbow's the element of loyalty.....she's the only one who's LOYAL!!! They could have at least asked her if she wanted to come :/
I was all happy face till the end, then i was very sad face.
i feel somewhat very bad for dashie since theres no resisting of how the urge to say im somewhat related to Dashies Counterpart
@dmtacticalMadmax has been with us since the very birth of EqD, and dominates the Comics archive. I think it's fair that she gets dedicated posts for her comics out of tradition and because of the amount of time she's dedicated to entertaining us ponies
[incoming head canon]Oh Dashie... You like to bury your misery in ice cream. That means your life must actually be really hard and you really need a friend by your side.You know what they say; those who put on the toughest faces often have the weakest insides.Dash pretends to be tough and that her life is awesome...but that's because she's insecure and doesn't have anyone she can really trust. She acts tough, which sometimes causes her to act like an asshole, because she's afraid that if she doesn't, her friends will think she is weak and abandon her.I like to think she was orphaned and grew up alone. Completely. Alone. Ever wonder why she craves attention? Why she wants to hang out with her friends at the strangest times?She wants to fit in with her friends. It's why she wanted a pet.Open up to your friends, Dash. Real friends will understand, and are willing to help. You don't have to be alone anymore...
Dash has achieved a lot in her life in spite of her shortcomings. She's saved Equestria twice, won the "Best Young Flyer's" award, saved her heroes, pushed the envelope with new tricks and daring moves, and she is still young. She can accomplish anything if she puts her mind to it, and when she says she'd gonna do something, there is next to no chance of stopping her.The sky truly is the limit with her, and to be honest, I think she'll go into orbit just to prove me wrong.
Poor Dashie, I wish she was real so I could hug her. Also, to the couple people above me speculating about RD's past and pretending to act like she is so her friends don't abandon her, I knew I wasn't the only one who imagined that. :P
I think this illustrates pretty well that RD needs to have some gaps in her history filled.
@LloxLuff and snuggles and- have you even met Dashie?
@Calamus_DashYou read my mind.
But, but, Fluttershy is the one who didn't finish flight school! She (literally) dropped out when she went to live on the ground! I don't remember there being any other schools mentioned. ?
Hah. I cracked up twice at this comic. First was when Pinkie commented "I'm supposed to be at work right now but I don't care!!" Lmao. And in the last panel. Well, it's good ice cream at least. Poor Dashie. :(
................................. I'm just........ Not even gunna say a thing about this -_-''
*sniff* thats so sad, poor rainbow dash *sob* thats just mean *crying* WAAAAAAAAH
D:Goddamnit Dashie, I wanna hug you so tight! I feel sorry for her now, really. I never realized how much of a loner she is.
My hugs and snuggles, Dashie! You has all of them!
Aww no no no no Dash, come here... *snugs her* Everypony sometimes just makes bad mistakes, but there's always a way to be a better more sociable pony. :'3
...i keep forgetting dash is a dropout. She never struck me as the type to quit anything, so it just seems weird.and now i want to know what rarity's talking about. that a reference to a fic or something?
Hey, come on now, poking fun at her personality, low blow there. Yeah, she's got some annoying flaws--- but look at who she hangs out with: an obsessive-compulsive spaz, a vain drama-queen egomaniac; a stubborn bossy judgemental workaholic, a cloying shrinking violet with explosive rage disorder, and a flat out hyper-manic lunatic.
@Party Favors DOOOOOOOO IIIIITTTTT.@JamesWhy the hay am i picturing Berry saying that now?!
I like to imagine that Hügen-Dash is Rainbow's fat German (or whatever the pony equivalent of German would be) famous for the inclusion of cloud-cream into his ice creams.
Aww! Poor Dashie! Next she'll get left out of the Wonderbolts because she exceeded their weight limit. ;)
@WafflecannonWhoops, forgot to put "uncle" after German. Her German Uncle.
LOL if it were any other pony, I'd feel bad for them. Since it's just Dash, I just find this to be incredibly hilarious.
I just realized how odd it is that a children's show would have a school drop-out as a main character.Doesn't that seem weird to anyone else? Or is it just me?
:( Aside from Applejack, we've seen all the ponies cry in this fandom. Dash's hits the hardest. We love you Rainbow!
@RHJuniorRHJunior?Redmond High School Junior???
@WafflecannonJust as a fun side note, Häagen-Dazs isn't German.It was named like that to look Danish (because apparently Danes have a good reputation for dairy products). It actually isn't Danish at all, its name is purely for marketing purposes. "äa" and "zs" don't appear in any Scandinavian words.
Aww! She looks so sad. I wanna be HUGGIN' DASH to help make her feel better.
Her tears burn my soul.
I'M HUGGING THE MONITOR BUT NOTHING'S HAPPENING!!
...somepony care to explain why should there be ice cream?I still don't get it.
@cjwcjwcjwcjwNot sure what you mean, so I'll answer both ways of taking that:1) Why is there ice cream in Equestria?My answer: Why not? they have other sweet stuff like cakes.2) Why is Dash eating ice cream funny?My answer: It's a common stereotype that when people (mostly women) get sad that they binge eat (ice cream in particular) to feel better. The phenomenon is called "comfort eating".That's why some people say a girl's best friends are Ben and Jerry.
lol rainbow dash has nothin
Poor Rainbow ;<Hügen-Dash ;p
Come here dash I need to tell you something, a great pony once told me "When you become sad you should stop being sad and be awesome instead" and since your already awesome this should be easy for you :D
Jesus. That last panel of Rainbow Dash is heart-wrenching.
And thus, about 99999999999999 20 year old guys stopped doing homework to start fantasizing about how they would put their arms around Rainbow Dash's shoulder.And I dreamed about how I would be a pony that can bend the earth in any way possible and could make M249 SAW machine guns come out of nowhere.You bronies have your interests, I have mine.
Face it rainbow, you literally failed in life. Your not wanted by anyone but your off-center friends. You dropped out of school, became a slacker. You have a dead end job and your infamous for being very short tempered and supposedly being a lesbian. There is literally no way of sugar coating this. Going back to school may help a bit at least. and trying to find another good job that can handle your abilities and try and put off the Wonderbolts for now. You can make up those lost years but it won't be easy. Try hard and I know you can do it.
Dashie, evry time I see you cry, I feel sadness as well. When you're in physical pain, I'm in emotional pain from seeing it. When you need me, I'll be there. Always watching over you, protecting you in any way possible. In "Cupcakes," I leveled Sugarcube Corner just to save you from more torture than you had already gone through. When you were trapped in Ghastly Gorge, I lifted the rock off of your wing and rescued you, responding to your call for help. i'll always be there for you, Dashie.
