I was born for this by Coaldust
Who am I? Good question.
Spectrum Blitz opened the secret compartment of his wardrobe, and pulled out the light blue flight suit, laying it out carefully on the bed of his small Cloudsdale apartment. He threw his work clothes aside after removing them, and removed the flight suit from its hanger.
You could say I’m part of a legacy. A line of heroes.
He unzipped the suit and slid it on carefully, ensuring it was snug, taking care to feed his rainbow mane and tail through the relevant holes. Once all was secure, he zipped it up, feeling the familiar tingle of pride as he donned the famous suit.
You could say I’m Equestria’s destined champion, like the 5 others who stand beside me in the fight against evil.
Spectrum stood before the full length mirror, examining his suit, ensuring the outfit was secure. Satisfied by what he saw, he nodded, a proud smile on his face. His wings flexed on either side of the flight suit, the brilliant red wings a stark contrast with the suits’ sky blue.
Some ponies say I’m a symbol, an icon, a beacon of hope in an otherwise dark world.
He turned his attention to a screen behind him, red warning indicators overlaid on a map of Manehattan. The screen was an invention of Kimono, the protégé of Twilight Sparkle’s own faithful student, Sweetie Belle. It was enchanted to highlight monster attacks across Equestria, and right now, Manehattan was under attack.
My parents named me Spectrum Blitz, but that doesn’t define who I am.
The radio beside the screen flared into life, and the voice of his dear friend Eagleheart came through.
“Spectrum, come in! Check your screens. We have high level of Discord-Spawn activity in the Western district of Manehattan. Do you confirm?”
“Roger, Eagleheart. Confirm situation is understood. I’ll rendezvous with you at the Statue of Harmony.”
“Confirmed, Spectrum. See you at the party!”
Who am I? I’m the pony who was born for this. I’m the fastest and strongest flyer in Equestria. I’m the Element of Loyalty, like my father was, and his mother before him.
Spectrum Blitz walked out onto the balcony, wings spread, and with a brief look at the stars to orient himself, he launched into the night sky, and rocketed toward Manehattan to join his friends, and save Equestria once again.
When I put this suit on, I’m not Spectrum Blitz any more. When I put this suit on, I’m a legend. I’m a legacy. I’m a hero.
A rainbow contrail tore across the sky at high speed, before a sudden explosion of light erupted in the night sky, filling the darkness with the colours of the rainbow.
I’m Rainbow Dash.
A very high octane submission! It felt very superherolike. I felt like I was sucked into a comic book. The idea of future generations turning the Mane 6 into these idols, these legacies, is an intriguing one. Great job!
