Another day, another adorable pony family! Here are the most supportive parents I've ever seen, plus their daughter and honorary daughter, who obviously took the picture. When I first watched "Parental Glideance" for the first time, my first impression of Dashie's parents was mostly that they were ridiculously over the top. In hindsight however, while they're still over the top somewhat, they are also very likable ponies who love and deeply care for their daughter (maybe a bit too much for their own good, but that's another page). And they immediately took to Scootaloo. If Scoots really turns out to be an orphan, they would be the perfect foster parents in my book. Would give them as much benefit as it would to Scoots.

This pic is a slight departure from the "staged family photo" look of the others before. For this family, I thought to bring them up a bit closer to the camera and closer together. Also I wanted to have Scootaloo in it. Sweetie Belle is with Rarity, Apple Bloom will be on the Apple photo of course, so I didn't want to leave Scoots out at any rate. Well, she does have a camera, so I made her take a selfie-style shot with her (substitute?) family.

Bashful Dashie by me :iconmundschenk85:

Fun fact: Before Bow Hothoof and Windy Whistles were introduced, I always believed that Rainbow Blitz and Firefly were Dash's parents.

Funner fact: I STILL follow that headcanon, with Bow and Windy being her aunt and uncle, respectively.

...Ahhh. But it's still a wonderful picture, as always. Especially because I adore any artwork that depicts Scootaloo being Rainbow Dash's adopted sister.

Ooooh, Fantastisch!!!! The picture of the family of my favourite pony, I love that Dash feels embarassed, and I love her parents, and I liked how Scootaloo met them, when I've watched the episode I couldn't wait for the subbed version, so I watched it in English, and a day before my birthday.

Anche mi è piaciuto molto questo episodio!
watched it in English first too, and later in German when it was translated. The German translation of the series isn't as bad as some people say, just a bit lackluster sometimes. Overall I prefer the original English, but it's a close race :)

Rainbow's family grew on me, despite the fact I kinda agreed with her when she yelled at her parents, since they could have caused an accident from launching fireworks into the crowd, and with Scootaloo having no family besides her two aunts, yeah this is very cute. And it's even more heartwarming with the end of The Washouts. I won't spoil it in case you haven't seen it, but it's an excellent resolution to Scoots family troubles. Being that Rainbow Dash is my favourite character, I love seeing her bond with Scootaloo.

I'd love it if you took suggestions again
