Why children of the Mane Six?

When I decided to do artwork and fanfics on a more common basis, I wanted to make something that people enjoy seeing but give it my own spin.

There is no shortage fan children in the MLP fanbase, but I'm trying to make it more than just a byproduct of shipping. I want my characters to be believable kids who have their own unique personalities, traits, strengths, and weaknesses. In short, I want them to be a convincing next generation and I hope you all enjoy the effort I put into my work to do so.

Thank you all for your awesomeness. ;)
Once upon a time, there was a young colt named Tempest.

He was a wild youngster who shared much of his mother Rainbow Dash's enthusiasm for speed, tricks, and showing off. All his life he had looked up to her, wishing to be just like the great "Daredevil Dash" and he wanted nothing more than to prove himself as her worthy successor. While the pressure of being the foal of an Equestrian hero proved more difficult for some of his other friends (like Andromeda), Tempest was too stubbornly set on his goals to let it get him down. 

From the moment he was able to fly, Rainbow Dash trained him to be a superb flier, and after all the stories he had heard about her legendary Sonic Rainboom, Tempest became dead-set on accomplishing the once mythical feat himself. Things did not go as planned, however, as attempt after attempt ended in failure. Despite his natural skills and training by his mother, the sonic rainboom constantly eluded him. 

This would all change on a day he, Berry Pie, and Bismarck Apple decided to play a game of "truth or dare." Being a rowdy young bunch of colts, truth was never really an option as their game often became a series of increasingly difficult dares. Sometimes these would be simple like performing tricks and other times pranks would be involved, like sneaking jello mix into Ponyville's fountains in broad daylight, unnoticed. Other times, dares would merely be competitions of speed, strength, and wits. 

On one such day, Bismarck, unconvinced that Tempest was as talented as he boasted to be, dared his friend to fly from Ponyville to Canterlot and back at top speed in an absurdly short amount of time. Little would Tempest know that his friends had decided to make things a bit more interesting. Choosing a day that Rainbow Dash was in Ponyville, Bismarck and Berry smiled as Tempest took off with all his strength, and as soon as he was far enough, the two rascals raced towards RD to tell her that Tempest had stolen from them. 

Knowing that Berry and Bismarck were good colts (which they were, despite their trickery), Rainbow Dash took after her son with a vengeance. With her superior experience and ability, it did not take her long for her to catch up to him as he had begun to return to Ponyville from Canterlot. Seeing that his mother was furious, fear overtook Tempest, pushing him to flee faster than he ever had before. His heart raced so quickly and so loud that he could not hear his mother calling to him over the sound of their thunderous beats. 

He could feel her gaining on him, as if nipping at his hooves until he suddenly found himself rocketing away from her at an incredible velocity. Looking behind him, he realized that he had finally done it! He had finally accomplished a sonic rainboom! Reaching Ponyville in record time, he decided to show off to his shocked friends with some tricks. Still trailing the rainboom behind him, he performed an aileron-roll, a nose dive barrel-roll, and for his final trick, he pulled up at the last possible second, grazing the grass below him before he rocketed into the air. 

And at that moment, as he ascended high above Ponyville at tremendous speed, his flank began to glow. Finally, after what felt like an eternity, he had gotten his cutie mark! So overjoyed that he was no longer a blank flank, Tempest plummeted towards his friends with great haste. Landing beside them, he laughed at them, proud that he had not only gotten his mark, but accomplished a sonic rainboom in the process.

Bismack and Berry did not share his enthusiasm. They remained silent, their eyes and jaws wide-open. Tempest glanced around at what they were staring at and, in one fell swoop, his triumph crumbled. Shattered windows, torn-down doors, uprooted plants, and dizzy ponies surrounded them. Tempest's heart sunk when he realized that he was the cause of the widespread destruction. The force of his sonic rainboom, so close to Ponyville, had sent powerful shockwaves that destroyed a great deal of property. And there, in the midst of it all, stood Rainbow Dash, her magenta eyes glaring at him with fiery rage. 

Bismarck and Berry desperately tried to apologize and explain what they did, but it was not be enough to subdue a mother's anger. Because all three were responsible for the mess, they were each punished for what they did by being forced to clean up the town. After that, each colt found himself grounded by his own parents. The work was hard and the grounding felt like an eternity for them, but to Tempest, it was all still worth it. 

Though his friends had brought the wrath of his mother upon him, he held no hard feelings against them overall, as they had inadvertently given him the rare drive to push himself further than he had ever done before. From that day forward, Tempest knew that he wanted to go fast, to wow others with his feats, and to push himself past the limit. 

Tempest, the son of Rainbow Dash, had gotten his mark!

I don't think I could ever make a design of offspring of my OC's, I had a RP with friend with RD as a Alicorn

Well if you want to, don't give up. Try experimenting with colored pencils first. That's an easy way to get an idea of what you want. :)

Didn't there used to be a poll that involved Andromeda and Tempest becoming a couple?

There was. I took it down because I've decided to post a Journal instead. It'll be up soon.
