"I'll miss you, Daddy..."

Based on the Fan Fic My Little Dashie by :iconrobcakeran53:

If you have not read this fan fic yet, you must... YOU MUST... YOU MUST!!!
It is honestly one of the best short stories I have ever read, and I have read a few! For those of you who haven't read it though, here's the premise so that you may better understand this image:
Warning: SPOILER
Rainbow dash is found as a filly by a man who lives alone in the house his parents left him after they passed away. Over the course of several years, he raises her as a daughter, never knowing where she came from or how she got there. With the help of her adopted father, Rainbow Dash grows to become the mare we all know. They go through some hard times, they have some fights, yet through it all, their relationship grows ever stronger. On a summer day of the fifteenth year, Princess Celestia and the other five show up at his house to bring Rainbow Dash home with them, explaining that an accident had sent her to our world only a few equestrian days earlier. The final moments between Rainbow Dash and her adopted Dad are some of the saddest words I have ever read. Before twilight erases Dashie's memories of our world and takes her back to Equestria, Dash writes this letter:

Dad,

For fifteen years you took care of me. For fifteen years you loved me, played with me, and made sure I enjoyed my life in a world not meant to house me. I'm not a mare of many words, but even though I told you this in person, I felt you needed a written version of it so you will know it was all real.

I love you daddy. You helped shape me into the mare I am now. I'm not sure what is going to happen, if I will remember any of this or not, but I want you to know that you did a darn good job of raising me, even if I was a bit stubborn at times and short with you during others.

With Celestia's permission, I hope to allow you to keep our photos; our memories, with you so that you will never forget. Again, I love you, and thank you.

Your little daughter always,
Your little Dashie forever,
Rainbow Dash.


So everypony, if you haven't read it yet, please, for me, READ IT!! You may cry a little, but you won't regret it, I promise you.

THIS PIC IS DEDICATED TO :iconcaerdwyn: WHO GAVE ME A YEAR LONG PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! :tighthug:

Wow. That story....was really sad. I really couldn't hold my self back from crying when I read it. *sniff* It was so touching. And although Rainbow Dash is not one of my favorite ponies, the story helped me find a new appreciation for her. Now, I understand why people like her so much. And now, I can honestly rival her as one of my favorite 3 ponies. Fluttershy, Vinyl Scratch and...Rainbow Dash. Derpy, used to hog the #3 spot. But no more. Rainbow Dash, you are an awesome pony, which I have really overlooked. I always thought you we're overrated to the max, and that it would never be my favorite pony....but as I said a thousand times before, this story gave me a new appreciation for her. Thank you, whoever wrote it. Also, this picture, does look realistic enough. As the story said, she had her cartoony look. She does have it here, and, well, the final goodbye part is what touched me. I really, honestly couldn't hold myself back from crying. I'll finish this critique with these 5 words: Rainbow Dash, you are awesome.

dude, i read my little dashie a few weeks ago. i gotta say, it touched me more than anything else i had seen. it pretty much showed a realistic view of what it could be like if any or all of the ponies ended up in our world. plus there was that question of should i keep rainbow dash despite the risk of our worlds colliding or let her go back at the cost of my own depression. thankfully the sequel gave us some closure, but this picture amplifies that tearjerker effect of losing someone that you raised as a daughter. i can only imagine the hurt that someone goes through when they give someone up. 5 stars for everything.

My Little Dashie..Ah....The story is so Amazing I don't know where to begin. Even though it did create and form a picture in your head you Sir have created a better image, I know the pain that the man must have felt when he gave up Rainbow Dash, but now that someone has drew it shows that someone, someone pictured the exact picture that the Writer of the Fanfiction wanted to picture, I am sure many of us pictured this but now that the Writer has official proof. This is stunning, amazing, beautiful and sad. Thank you for drawing this.

First off I'd like to say this is my first critique. So if it is not good, I apologize.

Ok here it goes:

Vision: 5/5
I love the way this looks. RD looks well detailed with keeping the show's art style. Love the darker areas near her edges, really brings it out. Love how she is crying as in the fic.

Originality:5/5
"My Little Dashie" was the first Fan Fic I have ever read, and it put some breathtaking images in my head.(If only I could put them down) Ok back to you, I have seen other images that put cartoon objects or people (or Ponies) into the real world, but this one takes the cake. I haven't seen it done this well. She still resembles her show self but seems a little more realistic.

Technique:5/5
Great Technique!! Loved everything about it. I am not sure how you did it but it looks great!

Impact:5/5
This really impacted me. As mentioned above in "Originality" My Little Dashie put some breathtaking images in my head and this feels like it could have been one of them. The fic impacted me and this image has impacted me.


Hope you liked it. I really loved the image. Keep at it.

Just thought I'd say this before I send this off to you:

My Little Dashie was a simply amazing fic that I definitely consider reading over again. Due to the story much fanart has popped up, but this is one of the few pictures her eon dA I've stumbled upon that portrays to me all of the feelings I experienced when I read the story itself... It's so sad and yet it's just stunning at first glance.

This is a photo-manipulation as my guess.. But still hardly looks like that because it's so well done, a very good sign of a lot of great time and effort put into it and I must say I'm really impressed with this. You certainly can take a scene from a fic and create a image such as this to give it real life. :3

Very nice work my friend and I'm looking very forward to seeing more like is particular one. ^^

A true and authentic story about what is love someone and the feelings that you have to treat someone. I really liked a lot and I'm not lying when I say that I cried with this story, is the best I've ever seen in my entire life. As starts and how it ends is the best that anypony can see, I can not really believe this story will not last even 20 minutes without feeling many emotions with this story and ended up really mourn a story that deserves full praise. Congratulations!!!! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> Is the best history in the world!!!

Very touching. I shed manly tears over the fan fic, and I think I feel them welling up again in the corners of my eyes looking at this. The photo manipulation is simply superb. Very few things can move me to tears, but my little dashie and this piece of art managed to do so. So, I congratulate you, and I congratulate the author of my little dashie, for these are both truly remarkable. I hope that I too will one day be able to create such moving artwork and literature. Until then, I'll need people like you to bring it to life. Amazing work.
Simply amazing.

I,like everypony else, cried while reading My Little Dashie..It makes me wish I had my own little Dashie...I'd raise like my baby sister that I've always wanted..This picture captures that moment in the story so perfectly..I cried while reading the DESCRIPTION of this picture..The letter is so sad..The only time in the Tv show that I've seen Dashie cry was in the Flim Flam brothers episode where they ran out of cider...In that episode Dashie's crying was so d'aww...But in My Little Dashie..Dashie's crying made ME cry...Everyone's heart was broken in the end..Even Celestia's.I really want my own little Dashie after reading this...
