My Little Pony: Micro-Series: #2: Rainbow Dash: 05/10/18
My Little Pony: Micro-Series: #2: Rainbow Dash by Ryan K. Lindsay follows Rainbow Dash as she comes head to head with an obstinate cloud. In Equestria, pegasi are in charge of weather control, including cloud wrangling. Rainbow Dash while performing her famous rainbow boom comes head to head with a cloud infested by gremlins. They spoil her boom and she's injured.
Besides being injured, Rainbow Dash who is always trying to be 20% cooler, begins to doubt her abilities as a flyer. She also has a huge stubborn streak, so she does keep trying and failing, until she's almost ready to give up. Although we see the gremlins straightaway, it takes Rainbow Dash most of the book to figure out they are behind it.
Now if this were the animated series, the other ponies in her immediate group of friends would notice that she wasn't acting like herself. Though it would be a struggle to get her to listen, they would find a way and help her get to the bottom of the problem. It's the lack of the other pony friends: Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Shutter Fly, Apple Jack and Rarity that makes this book seem very out of character.
