It's no doubt to everyone that one of the most memorable episodes of all Friendship is Magic is "Read it and Weep", where the badass Indy Jones expi Daring Do is introduced. Daring Do is one of my favorite characters of the show. She's bold, she's brave, she's smart, and she looks awfully cute in that pith helmet. When my friend told me that she is voiced by Chiara Zanni (the voice of BonBon in My Little Pony Tales) then the likable metter reached critical mass.
So, once again, you have to understand how much this kills me. I have the impression that my random number generator got stuck in "Sadist Mode" and thus keeps giving me characters that I love and hold very dear to my heart. I guess that only makes the drawing more powerful, right? I'll let you decide that.
What is the worst kind of nightmare to have? Is it being chased by something you can't see? Or being all alone in a room with nothing but yourself? In my opinion, the worst kind of nightmare is the nightmare that physically hurts you, like falling endlessly until you hit the bottom. There is always one nanosecond of doubt in your brain that lingers forever, during which you don't know if what just happened was real or it was just in your head. At one point you can be flying, free and light carried by the wind. The clouds pass by your side, and your feathers make little curls with their fluffy tops. But then lightning strikes perforating both your wings, and you lose control. You spin around, getting dizzy, until the ground is nothing but a whirlpool of brown and green that keeps getting bigger and bigger. And then you keep falling, thinking you might have entered the tunel to the center of the Earth, and you realize that dying alone, crushed and abandoned with nobody to look for you, is not a good way to go.
Nobody wants to die like that.
