Is That an Academy Record? by Pony-Berserker Is That an Academy Record? by Pony-Berserker
Russian translation: [link]
Korean translation: [link]

So, Rainbow Dash is in the Wonderbolt Academy now, right? But she is also staying in Ponyville the whole time, so...

This is kinda inspired by my friend's experience. He once signed up for a course in university, and forgot to attend it...

The style of this comic is obviously based on :iconfoxy-noxy: Foxy-Noxy's awesome drawing style. I tried to draw something similar in look.

The comic was proofread by Yipyapper from fimfiction [link]

Drew by me in Inkscape and GIMP

Wow all these comments trying to explain how the academy works. I wish that episode had explained better how it works and how it contributes to the process of being a wonderbolt.

Why was this submitted to a writing group?

Furthermore, why was it accepted?

Pony-Berserker Featured By Owner May 20, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
because this writing group has a comic folder.

You might not know that, but comics also need to be written.

I hadn't known that too for quite a long time until I was about to leave the group (as I don't publish here any writings anymore).
btw, my previous answer wasn't supposed to be rude, but I think it might've sounded this way

Your grammar sucks, but you have a point. I for one think she comes from a rich family. If anyone dropped out I think it would be Fluttershy.

I still have these dreams!!!

I've got to get to class!

I think the Academy is a one week camp, designed both to identify potential candidates for recruiting, and to give fans and wannabes a taste of the high life: endurance, precision, and speed; bunks and mess halls; orders and discipline.

So, then it woud not be SOO important for RD. I got the impression that she had been accepted into the Academy and she would train there to become the Wonderbolt, but then RD doesn't even mention the Academy in next episodes.

Well, like Spitfire said, if they were truly the hot stuff they think they are, they'd already be Wonderbolts.

Think ROTC, the school-based officer factory. Rainbow didn't finish Flight School for some reason, and probably lost the chance to get into the Wonderbolts in the standard manner. She probably wouldn't have been 'Bolt material anyhow; she thought she could crash the airshow at the Gala and get into the Wonderbolts, when the most likely outcome would have gotten her into a prison cell. (Think flying a crop-duster into a Thunderbirds airshow.) Her time with Twilight and friends has mellowed her just enough to make her dreams potentially likely.

i thought it was a try out for the academy?

so when they do the end of the year draft they know who to pick beforehand.

It might have been just an initial bootcamp for ponies wanting to know if they were up to Wonderbolt levels of training. Or maybe it's run like reserve training (ie weekends only). Or perhaps it's a couple of times a week and Dash is simply fast enough to commute from Ponyville and hold down her job as captain of the Ponyville weather team.
