Flying too close to the sun? Anyone?

Well, it's still slightly less literal than canon Rarity in Sonic Rainboom.

We didn't have a session of Fallout is Dragons this last Sunday, so there wasn't going to be an episode this weekend. But then, on a whim, we decided to run another mini-session on Thursday! So we're editing that, and hopefully it'll be done before the weekend's out (we've had some technical difficulties trying to rush it out, though).
Notice: I've moved and am now between jobs, so any donation via PayPal at the top or my Patreon page would be greatly appreciated.

Man, you pick some of the best facial expressions. I'm amazed how you can find just the right ones from the episode you're covering.

Also, FIRST!

Haven't been this early in a while.
I absolutely love the last three frames, they fit amazingly.
This is gonna be fun.

Was this one of those comics that was influenced by the people asking about what she'll do so Celestia doesn't recognize her, or was it already planned like this?

I think it was planned and the comments have no influence whatsoever...(rolls bluff...Nat 1) umm said no pony *POKERFACE*.

Spud probably planned it. On the other hand, in-story, I wouldn't be surprised if the DM decided to spring Celestia after hearing Rarity's plan.

Vampires get so screwed by technology when they're played in modern setting. None of my former players have forgotten the time they managed to capture a vampire's coffin, load it onto a rocket, and then slay the vampire so that his 'smoke-cloud-remains' are forced to get into the rocket.

NASA was confused about the fact they launched a vampire into orbit. The vampire even more so... for the minute or so he had before the sun came up over the horizon.

As Celestia is a benevolent ruler, she's probably going to tell her she can continue her things as long as what she does doesn't endanger anyone other than herself, and she doesn't steal anything from the royal treasury (and the party will say "oh well, guess you can't steal anything", and Rarity will say "Oh ho ho ho ho, that's what you think"

Video! (x2)

Rarity might be the teams face, diplomat, and resident sticky-hooves, but I hope her bluff skills matches her WIT and REPUTATION

Celestia: Why hello, Rarity. Have you been enjoying your stay in Canterlot?
Rarity: Um, y-yes, it's been fabulous. Seeing all the sights, taking in the culture.
Celestia: That's good to hear. By the way, I was wondering if you'd like to be my guest at at royal fundraiser tomorrow. All of the upper class will be there, and I'm sure you'd find some new clients for your dresses. There's a pony named Fancy Pants that I know you'd get along with, and I've heard rumors about a mare named Dainty Dove who seems to be a rising star.
Rarity:...About that...

You would be amazed how many groans you can get by uttering the words "By a staggering coincidence..." after the party has decided to do anything remotely risky. It doesn't even matter what you finish with because their moaning will follow immediately.
