On a quiet night in Equestria, while most ponies are asleep in anticipation for a new day and fresh beginnings, a single rainbow-maned cyan pegasus casts a watchful gaze out over the town she's come to call home - all the while reflecting on the exhilaration of her ability to fly so freely and the friends she's come to know.

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth

And danced the sky on laughter silvered wings

Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth

Of sun-split clouds and done a hundred things

I've wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence

Hovering there I've chased the shouting winds aloft

And flung my eager craft through footless halls of air

"There's so much to enjoy when I'm up in the sky, racing around with nothing to keep me still or hold me back... The others, except for Fluttershy and Rarity, can't really understand the type of joy we pegasi get out of being unrestrained like this..."

The higher we fly, the farther we go

The closer we are to each other

The darker the night, the brighter the star

In peace go my sisters and brothers

"But, even though I'm able to defy what most others can't... I get just as much happiness from being around them, Element of Loyalty or not. Applejack, Pinkie, even that egghead, Twilight... There's a lot I like about being able to hang around with them as often as I do."

Up, up, the long delirious burning blue

I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace

Where never lark nor even eagle flew

And while with silent lifting mind I trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space

Put out my hand and touched the face of God

"I've made a name for myself, by being called the 'best flier in all of Equestria', but, for once... I'm realizing that there's a deeper meaning to why I have the name Rainbow Dash. Sure, I can outrun and outrace anypony, but when it's needed... I won't turn my back on the ponies who need help, whether they're my friends or not."

The higher we fly, the farther we go

The closer we are to each other

The darker the night, the brighter the star

In peace go my sisters and brothers

From somewhere nearby, however, there's a sudden semi-audible crash, followed by yelling, which prompts the cyan pegasus to dive off her cloud-home and glide down to the tree serving as Ponyville's library to investigate. "Aw, come on... What's Twilight doing so late at night? I'd think she'd be more careful about trying not to break stuff."
