I saw this picture on a fb page one time, and it really spiked me. My mind works like a computer where .ini's are personality sectors and within those are .sys' that help run it. This corrupted my emotion.sys driver on the brony.ini 4.3.10 sector. I tried repairing it, and it failed. I came to find it was RansomWare. It required that I must write a FanFic on this very picture and explain why Rainbow Dash is looking into the mirror, who that REALLY is in the mirror, where she is, and why is the picture so grim-looking. So writing a FanFic, expect to see it, and using this as an illustration.
We all see apart of ourselves in every work of art. This work's purpose is for another, but it speaks volumes to me. I have gone through turbulent times. Inner conflicts and causing fractures to friend's whom names I will not say. I identify myself with this character, as do many many others. This is beyond beautiful and symbolic to the time I posted this comment. It's rather coincidental finding this piece in the puzzle to help bring out the larger picture in my life. From an artist's point of view there is nothing I can say besides "flawless." I feel it's power and meaning resonate from my screen and fracture the very fabric of my being. If this hadn't been birthed by your hand, than I would of commissioned something exactly similar. Thank you, and wonderful style you have.
