Maybe a glider or prosthetic wings just wouldn't be fast enough and it wouldn't be worth it because she feels like she didn't earn it herself…


Well, she does have mechanical skills of her own — if she wants to "earn it herself" I could easily see her developing her own device, and possibly even using it to help other pegasi who need a little extra lift.

That's why I said she doesn't "usually" make a "big deal". She indicates it but doesn't go out of her way to tell the whole world she wishes to fly. I never said she gives up. As I mentioned she literally used a giant slingshot to get to Cloudsdale. She wanted to join the Washouts to prove her own abilities and soar through the sky in a different way. She looks up to Rainbow Dash because she is a brave daredevil who loves extreme speed, so Scootaloo also loves extreme speed She wants to compensate her inability to fly in a way she enjoys and perhaps with her own efforts. Those are her potential solutions. Maybe a glider or prosthetic wings just wouldn't be fast enough and it wouldn't be worth it because she feels like she didn't earn it herself, or maybe I was wrong and she will get prosthetic wings if she has the chance then that's great too. I never said she gives up trying to fly I said she loves the thrills.

Except that there have been multiple episodes where Scootaloo indicates that some part of her yearns to fly. Since when does "don't let your disability define you" translate into "give up on your dreams without looking into potential solutions with which to compensate"?

I think one of my favorite aspects about Scootaloo's character is how she doesn't let her disability define her. Other than the one episode where Diamond Tiara teases her about it, Scootaloo doesn't usually make such a big deal about her lack of flight. She still manages to find different ways to make herself stand out and enjoy extreme activities. I'd say most of times she is even more hardcore than Rainbow Dash. Point is, Scootaloo probably won't get any prosthetics even if there's any made for her. I mean she literally used a giant slingshot to get to Cloudsdale. This filly loves the thrills!

Prosthetic horn is actually a really good idea to be honest. Just like when Edna Mode found the material that can turn invisible along with Violet in The Incredibles, who says ponies can't find some kind of material that can create artificial magic?

@Wayneponeth
"A Cutie Re-Mark" showed an alternate-timeline Rainbow Dash with a prosthetic wing. Though that could just be an issue of it not being cost-effective to make some sophisticated prosthetics for a foal who would quickly outgrow them. Even then, Scootaloo could still use a hang glider.

As for horns, who knows. Tempest did comment on Equestria wasting its magical resources on fancy festivals instead of putting it to "greater uses". That is usually interpreted to refer to national defense, but it could just as easily apply to medical research.
DoctorWTF

@Wayneponeth
Tempest, Scootaloo, and Kerfuffle should be best friends.


It'd be nice of the other two could also get some decent prosthetics, if only to show that the ponies of Equestria aren't so brain-dead as to use "You don't need to be not-disabled to be special" as an excuse to slack off with developing actual solutions.

Personally, I headcanon that she's just a congenital amputee and there isn't anything more to it then that. Hard for anybody in Hope Hollow to really care to make a big deal of it if it's just what she is, and I'd have to imagine the Mane 6 would all more-or-less know that ponies or other creatures being born without a limb is a thing that can happen.
