I love Dash. She is awesome and sarcastic and takes absolutely no shit. She is great in supporting roles and she's been the driver behind some of my favourite episodes of the last few seasons, like Hurricane Fluttershy, Sleepless in Ponyville and Flight to the Finish.
But, I find her focus episodes to be a little patchy a lot of the time, and I think I know why. It's because she's awesome. She has dreams of professional athleticism, and she is an amazingly talented athlete, possibly the best ever as far as it looks in the show.
But that means that the episodes that focus on her dream can lack tension, because she is self-evidently the best competitor every time. Wonderbolts Academy finessed that with showing the dangers of talent without conscience, and Rainbow Falls had her shepherding a remedial team, but those are still tiny brakes on how great she is, and how she would ace any athletic competition, anywhere, against anyone (except Maud).
On the other hand, she is amazing when she's co-starring with a character where her nurturing instinct comes in, like Scootaloo or Fluttershy, and those make some of the best episodes in the show
So what sort of episodes would you like to see with Dash, how would you advance her story?
An appalling piece of pimpwork or a thoroughly botched token of sincerity
