Rainbow Factory by Drul Rainbow Factory by Drul
An illustration for Rainbow Factory fanfic by Aurora Dawn

You can find story here (warning this is not easy story. 18+ probably):
[link]

I really love this. I was trying hard to achieve that dirty sick atmosphere of despear.

There are many people who compare this fanfic to cupcakes and I understand why.

But in my opinion these are completely different.

I tried to put something more than just gore and blood as illustration. Thats because it is not blood that was hard and shocking for me.

I am immune to that kind of stuff so fuck it.

It is - betrayal that was shocking.

While it is much easier to imagine Pinky becoming maniac (she so random ^_^) it is completely impossible for me to fit that kind of acting for Dashy.

Element of Loyalty, I felt cripling horror realising here twisted madness. It was s stunning picture beautiful and horrible by its nature.

This is the moment of Scootaloos shock right before she broke up shoutng in anger.

Every other person in picture is uneven and blurry. It is not about them. The figures behind Scoot are her thoughts about everything happening. Unsure and random.

Those two figures by sides of Dash are two parts of her current mentality.
The guy to the right is rage. overwhelming and powering. the one driving.
The guy to the right is sorrow. I bet you have'nt notices teardroping in midair.
That is because I still loved Dashy while I was reading fanfic. Just like Scootaloo did till the end. And I felt sad for her fall.

It is cool story and I love it because of its strong and powerfull flow, like it was written within single breath.


P.S my English sucks when I try to express myself. sorry about that.

And you can see that there is a gap in the background where you can fly to. There is always an option. Fuck everything and go for it Scoot.

And, it's not 18+ because there's no clop... Just violence and cursing. And gore. It'd be about 13+ MAYBE.

Funny how you mention "betrayal" here, because I feel like that's a central theme with the Rainbow Dash in this story (with her betraying Scootaloo and, in her mind, vice-versa).

That's exactly what you have illustrated here in this detailed, well-drawn fanart.

I just had a vision of the rainbow factory being destroyed by the royal equestrian army with 30 seconds to mars' "this is war" playing in the background, seemed fitting, because i also imagined rainbow dash and the other workers fighting, but the REA wins on the lyrics "the war is won, a brave new world"

Just read this about 10 min ago, KILLER ending. Dangit scootaloo, WHY U MAKE ME FEEL BAD

WARNING

SPOILER ALERT

DO NOT READ AHEAD IF DONT WANT SPOILERS








“Any final words, you miserable, worthless *SPOILER ALERT* of a foal?”

Scootaloo brought her chin high, still demanding even the tiniest fraction of dignity.

“You have beautiful eyes,” she cooed, soft, yet clearly.

the betrayal aspect got me good too really. the bit about how Scootaloo was all that was keeping Dash sane, giving her something to keep at least part of her soul alive in the outside world. With Scoot's failure, Rainbow would loose every last shread of sanity she had managed to keep through her years.
I really don't blame Rainbow for this actually, considering she was forced into the position herself for the Rainboom. the facility broke her, and her despite and frantic mind sought something to latch onto, to keep her soul at least the littlest bit clean. when what she held onto was destroyed: of course she would snap!

I totally agree with you.
I don't think the story was shocking because of the gore either. The change in miss element-of-loyalty was what surprised me.
Her sudden change when she saw Scootaloo that caused her to have a pinkie-pie like creepiness, the dark story behind the city of clouds, the insanity and gore mixed in a rainbow...

It makes you think deeply about things which seem happy and simple y'know?
I kinda liked it. Totally interested in the next one.

This is by far the most powerful and most well thought-out Rainbow Factory image I have ever seen. Though the story was upsetting and unsettling for me (Dash's hate for Scootaloo, the deaths of children just for rainbows, and the way the ponies were treated throughout), it was a great story. If there's one thing this story could do to me, it was bringing out emotions in me, mainly sorrow and anger, but if a story can create that sense of emotion, it's great to me!

Sorrow and anger is far better than not feeling anything at all. Good thing - to enjoy all we get.
