For some reason (magic), Rainbow Dash is stuck in a state of slowed-time.

Does she fight the spell, trying as hard as she can to get back to normal-speed time?

Or does this spell make her stop and realize the beauty of the world on a different scale?

Rainbow Dash is stuck in slow time...

But to Rainbow Dash everything is moving ridiculously fast. As she tries to go faster and destroy the cause of her predicament in time, she loses hope and reflects on the life that is passing her by.

This reinforces her determination and she takes one final swing at it. In the end...

Princess Celestia wants Rainbow Dash to stay out of Canterlot. RD just causes too much damage. So she just has Shining Armor cast another protection spell.

Silly Celestia. You can't keep out the awesomeness that is Rainbow Dash. At best you can slow her down. A little...

Warning: Heavy dubstep. You may experience an "eargasm".

Twilight Sparkle tried a new spell in Rainbow Dash that put her in slow-time. Rainbow Dash sees the world in slow-motion and is stunned by it's beauty, until she realizes she can't get back into normal time and panics. When she calms down, she starts trying to fight the spell, but there's nothing she can really do, so she gives up and stays in the slow world.
Thankfully it was all just a dream.

No.14 - Score: 5
Rainbow Dash slows down after drinking a pint of Promethazine and Codeine w/ crushed up Xanax pills mixed in. She won't fall asleep tho becuz of the the Adderall and Yellowjackets in her system.

Then Evdog's Diamond Dog OC shows up and starts spitting rhymes.

At least that's what she remembers....

Remembrance in Suspended Animation Seventh Element 8/18/2012 11:40:22am No.18 - Score: 5
In this song, I describe Rainbow Dash being hit with a time slow down spell in the middle of flying through a big storm. She sees the rain in slow motion surrounding her and she remembers something.

Near the end his her breaking the spell with will power, ending with a crash of thunder.

Return to Frog Grotto Resonantwaves 8/18/2012 4:13:37pm No.20 - Score: 5
Rainbow dash finds a magical place in the grotto where she used explore when she was a filly now that she went back in time. she found it again and she had memories of the time she used to explore and have adventures in the frog grotto. once she came back to her time she invited her friends to come and explore and tell storys about it.

Freakytown Habanc 8/15/2012 12:44:57am No.3 - Score: 4
So, like, I was going through an episode to see if I could sample something from it, and Rainbow Dash called something "Freakytown". Inspiration, presto.

Anyways, this is a testament to why I don't like to use samples... Hours in I got annoyed and decided to just screw around with some fun sounds and practice my mixing/layering (Which I'm not sure I did).

Also, this is why I don't do Electro House, because it comes out silly. Whatever, it was still fun to work on once I stopped being all srs bsns. I just started playing around with sounds and such and this is what I got.

No.13 - Score: 4
I took "Rainbow Dash is slow" less literally than some people and wrote a song about her being stuck on the ground after breaking her wing, unable to fly. Understandably, she is frustrated by this.

Main vocals by me. Instrumental, backing vocals and third verse by MandraSigma.

Jet Lag zorg 8/18/2012 4:47:32pm No.23 - Score: 4
Just close your eyes and visualize the incomplete soundscape; chances are that you'll see plenty of what she saw. (hopefully)

the brain processes faster when there's an adrenaline surge or something; result is the perception of the world slowing down.

oh, and it's loopable. Thanks for StevenAD for his help :3

if i can make this better, then that will go on the asian themed album.

For Toastbeard ZIQ48, Rainbow Dash stuck in slow-mo, watching slow-moving, blurred surroundings.

Rainbow Dash is, like, David Guetta in a time vortex or something.

Slow Down Cyril the Wolf 8/18/2012 10:37:21am No.17 - Score: 2
One Hour

In flight, but you're not moving
You push harder but its not improving
Soothing your nerves you look around
Astounded by the new beauty you found.

Slow down and smell the roses
Slow down to see the sun
Slow down and see all this
All this that you missed in your rush

Vibrant greens of the oak tree
The patterns of the honey bee
The strands of your own mane
Prismatic spray, reflecting your name

Bit by bit you feel the wind again
Whip against you like you began
You've learned a lesson in slowed time
Everything shines everything shines

its own light

Seriously? We've got time dilation here with no mention of Doctor Whooves? I guess I'll start then.
