And you give yourself away

I’m still scratching around for story ideas. Apparently, though, I can recommend them to others more easily than I can recommend them to myself. A wannabe author at Yahoo! Answers was asking for story ideas involving Rainbow Dash, and in a surprisingly small amount of time I had this proposal on the table:

Dash discovers a couple of grey feathers in her wings, and a grey hair in her mane, and she panics. A medical exam reveals that her frequent high-speed flying is aging her at about twice the normal rate, and she panics even more.

I have decided not to write this, at least not right away, on the off-chance that our budding scribe might actually use it. (It did get me a Best Answer, one of a couple thousand I’ve earned.) If I don’t see it in a couple of months, I may give it a shot myself.
