Flight or fall by Vector-Brony Flight or fall by Vector-Brony
I've had this comic strip in my mind for a while. To be honest I want to see Scootaloo learn to fly and Sweetie Belle learn to use magic. And to see them all get their cutie marks.
The scripting for this comic was done by :iconlunais20percentcool: and :iconhampshireukbrony:
The comic was grammar checked by :iconlatias7:
A big thank you goes out to these two for all their help.

Overall this was a very entertaining comic. The panels were well done, but were all exactly the same size.

The pictures within the panels were all very good. The trees look a little stubby but the ponies themselves were almost perfect.

I thought the garden path structure was interesting, but people do it often in comics now (I dunno the everyday term for them, we call them Garden Path Stories in Linguistics because they take you down the garden path, and then cause you to realize that your preconceptions from the beginning of the story were 100% wrong like the movie Inception or Now You See Me, or the clip in American Dad where Roger tells everyone about when he was a race car driver and swerves to avoid a baby, and then says "I was that baby").

Overall it was very good work.
What do you think?

Lemme be honest here. This is great. Good plot, story line,idea in general. but, the trees are too flat and stubby, the jaws on some of the ponies are pushed forwards more than they should, and the idea of hte ponies movement isnlt so great. what i mean is that one pony is in one spot then its in another. othe than that ith is fantastic! the ponies are okay and the trees need to be fixed. i dont know what else to say about this other than a few tweaks need to be made to the ponies and the setting.

Because of the 'I am not a chicken!' panels, I think I spy an Undercover Brother reference.  Right? Or not so much?

To be honest I think that last panel was unnecessary. It feels like the punchline you were building to was the second-to-last panel and adding one more distracts us from it. Other than that this is pretty funny.

Heh! I can see a very good practical joke with this!

 

Say... Scootaloo were to purposefully dissapear for about a week. The CMC put that headstone somewhere in the cemetery, then they take Rainbow Dash to said cemetery saying there was something really important that she needed to see. Then they show her the headstone! I can just see her reaction:

 

:iconrainbowgaspplz:

 

:faint:

 

Me: :rofl:

 

Personally, I wanna see the CMC remain blank flanks for as long as possible because that's what makes those fillies entertaining. Their funny misadventures really adds to the show's flare! Take that away, and it won't be the same, IMO. :/
