, Rainstream Pony.png
It's been awhile since I made some rounds around here. I'd like to request a drawing of Rainstream here. I've offered her to several artists before, so you get the same request: Whatever you'd like to do with her, have fun. Her standing/flying/walking in the rain is a plus.

Rainstream is usually a very happy and fun-loving pony. She would attend any social gathering without a second thought, provided she already knows the attendees. She holds on to a select few friends, but rarely gathers any beyond that. She loves meeting new ponies, but is very shy and demure at first. She may take awhile to warm up to ponies she has not met before, but enjoys their company all the same. She is very playful—once she has become comfortable with opening up—and loves to tease. She doesn’t look it -- and rarely shows it -- but is a very powerful flier. She graduated Flight School in Cloudsdale with flying colors, having won the Best Young Flyer competition during both of her final two years.
Rain is a talented weather pony, working at the weather station in Las Pegasus, and can often be found outside of town playing in her rain field. Rainstream has an extreme fondness for rain, and finds every excuse to create it. She can be found on slow walks when sad -- with a raincloud following her around -- and will frolic in it when happy. She appreciates the beauty of it, often playing with the clouds to create an artistic display. Rainstream takes great pride in her weather making duties, hoping that others might share her admiration of the rainfall.
Rain is very disorganized, and tries not to keep a schedule. Rainstream is very spontaneous and naive, often traveling around at the drop of a hat. However, she is very loyal to anypony lucky enough to call her friend, if even for a moment, and will put herself in harm’s way to defend them. She would rather feel pain herself, than see it inflicted upon others. She also has a strong distaste for unicorns in general. They tend to be very uptight and too rich-and-snooty. She doesn’t trust them either—to be honest, or kind.
Due to her spontaniety, Rainstream may give little thought to the consequences of her actions, and can make some very rash decisions. Nopony really knows what her dream is, however. Some would argue that her dream is simply to live happily -- as she always has -- playing in the rain at every given opportunity, but nopony has ever gotten a straight answer out of her.
She grew up in Applewood, just outside of Las Pegasus, having moved away from her parents’ home in her adolescent years. She managed to get a job with the Las Pegasus weather team after running into the manager while playing with the clouds one day. (it’s not a very entertaining story, somewhat of a “Hi there” friendly conversation, manager happens to like personality, offers job due to needing another weather pony—right place at right time) They have enough workers -- and she’s skilled enough -- for her to be granted several weeks vacation time, which allows her to go traveling around like she likes.
