Keep the Window Open Next Time by Bakuel Keep the Window Open Next Time by Bakuel
Do you have any idea how long she had to wait there? Thankfully Lightning resistance means Pegasi don't even have to think about thunderstorm safety. And yes, Dash has evolved past normal anatomy and gone full cartoon.

So it's been raining a lot recently, perfect weather for the 4th of July weekend!

 I get to BBQ in the rain! :dummy:

Neat! I love a good reverse-self insertion, as I (and others) have dubbed it. Instead of being plopped into their world, the characters come to ours.
(From your artist comments, I take it that's what you were going for. If not, I apologize.)
First off, I loooove her umbrella!! It's so cute! The rain effect is awesome and the lights underneath her are gorgeous. I like how you incoperated the
city buildings to show that it's not Ponyville or anywhere in Equestria, but somewhere in a big city on earth. As for Dashie herself, she's great and
spot on and so, so colorful. :D The lightning bolt in the background may detract from Dashie a little, but that's probably just me. Awesome job!

Thanks for the kind words! :D
And looking back at it I agree with you about the lightning bolt, if I could do it over I would have shrunk it and put it further back over the horizon. Things like lightning don't really need to be big to be noticed so it would have been fine back there.

"Reverse-self insertion"? Never heard of the term but it's a good one.
And yes, I love reverse-self insertion too! It's an interesting topic for stories and illustrations. I guess it ties into my love of odd juxtapositions.

Me (as a pony) - Okay! I'll open the window to let you in. Geez!
RD - Ugh! Stupid rain (muttering about no fireworks until much later for Ponyville)
Me - So let me guess. Ponyville doesn't have a fireworks show till next week.
RD - They could of move those clouds for rain last week, but having rain today doesn't make me 20% cooler.
Me - Oh I get it! The pegasi didn't bother to do anything to change from clouds to stormy weather until last minute, which means you, Twilight and your friends are going on a vacation to Manhattan for at least two days. That makes perfect sense.
RD - Well, weather is weather. Twi said her plans were ruined which could have happened in two days.
Me - You know what, Rainbow? Maybe Twilight is right. I would love to go to Manhattan, but I can't. I don't have wings or a horn. I'm an earth pony, but I have my smarts.
RD - (chuckling) Egghead!
Me - I am going to pretend that I didn't hear that. If you'll excuse me I have some reading and studying to do just to appease Twilight for once.
RD - Awww COME ON! That's so uncool!
*hearing that while I start walking away too get on my studies*

Hope this dialogue makes perfect sense for this piece of artwork. (sighs) I don't a favorite or a seat favorite for ponies. So I like or love any of them.

When will people learn to leave the windows open for the pegasi? It's just common courtesy. They can't just walk and use doors and elevators like normal folks.

The art style suggests this is filly Rainbow Dash.

Now that I think about it, in Equestria ponies complaining about the weather is probably very annoying to weather pegasi.

"Oh! You want us to put the rain on hold for your holiday. Guess we'll just have to let those crops wither, somepony was planning a cookout! Maybe Celestia will hold up the sun to extend your day another thirty minutes or so."

I'm sure all kinds of sweet deals can be made with the weather pegasi.

And when I mean sweet, I'm talking about an extra case of cider left out or maybe some pie that just so happens to show up at somepony's door.

Always leave the windows open, even if it's a downpour! Pegasi can't use the doors like lesser creatures.
