Princess and Rainbows by GammaEradon Princess and Rainbows by GammaEradon
Commission by [link]

I don't know why, but I always found potential interaction between Princess Celestia and Rainbow Dash to be so interesting. This is influenced by the stories "Mommy Nearest" by Fairy Slayer [link] and its sequel "Alicorn" by Aldrea Donder [link]

Forget what I said a year ago: these two need to be mother and daughter. Just how many kids has Celestia given birth to and they had no clue?
I wonder if Sunset Shimmer would have had a friend if a little Rainbow Dash lived in Canterlot Castle.

I like the idea of a romantic relationship with these two. Preferably with one of them genderbent.

Yeeaahh, I read that after posting it. Now that I think about it, Celestia could end up raising a child to be a lot like Rainbow.

For some bizarre reason, Scootaloo seems to think the same. She is arbitrarily creating a romantic relationship between the Princess and an alicorn Rainbow Dash. I don't get it, but that's okay, it's a good story anyway.

My Little Pony : Friendship is Magic "Off the Rainbow Record". XD

So that's look like that, RD instead of TS in Celestia's student role. Do that mean that Boast Busters, Griffon the Brush Off, Lesson Zero, Read it or Weep it, The Return of Harmony, and A Canterlot Wedding would have now alternate counterparts? :)

Heee yup! When I finally sat down and started writing, I could think of no better image to choose for my cover art. I think the picture came before the story though, for me at least.

Adorable. I've always prefered the motherly Celestia to some of her other incarnations and this captures that side perfectly.

Also, if you'll forgive a tiny bit of shameless self-promotion, I think this story might be relevant as well [link]

I'm so happy that you liked the concept enough to commission such a wonderful, happy scene like this. (I know it's not directly based on the stories, but I still wish I'd caught it the moment it came out. :))

It makes me happy, wondering what it would have been like if Freyja Aurora Rainbow Dash grew up with her mother Princess Celestia. Beautiful little Dash is so lively and overjoyed with her mommy, and you can tell that Celestia's eyes are close to welling up with tears of joy and pride. =Lustrous-Dreams did a fantastic job on them, especially their expressions and Dash's pose. The background looks very cozy but not cluttered, so while they're nicely framed our eyes are only drawn around here and there, but that's when other aspects of the subjects get our attention again.
