Well, I’d argue that the fic was more sweet than bitter, since, although Scootaloo came to the realization that she would never be able to truly fly, she got accepted into the Wonderbolts and had pretty much all of her life’s dreams (up to that point) fulfilled at the end there. The comparison to the finale arose in my mind because they both had happy endings that didn’t perk up my acute sense of sentimentality.
I don’t think that being able to fly will render her scooter abilities obsolete. Just look at Fluttershy. She’s able to fly, albeit not very well compared to other Pegasi, and yet, she still lives on the ground, walks on her hooves most of the time, does what she loves, and generally acts like an Earth pony, except with the added bonus of wings. Same could go for Scootaloo. Perhaps the inevitable Scoots episode in season 3 will deal with Scootaloo finally being able to fly (yay!), except that she’ll have to come to terms with never being as good as her idol, Rainbow Dash. We could even see some really nice Scootaloo and Fluttershy bonding time here. Now, I know you prefer Rainbow in such a role, but I’d venture to say that Fluttershy would be a much fitting mentor for Scootaloo, seeing how alike they are and all. Flying wouldn’t be necessarily all around better than scooter riding if Scootaloo wasn’t really good with it in the first place.
