Every couple of months, Derpy visits the hospital for an appointment that only she and her roommate know about. Since the start, she's convinced Dinky that she's simply had some errands to run.

However, one day she believed that her daughter should learn the truth about where she goes and why. What has Derpy been hiding from her, and what could it mean for Dinky?

Didn't figure out she was visiting her sisters until she walked in. Thought she was getting a check-up. The psychological department... well I just thought she had psychological issues.

All I can say is that... there is this researcher in town. Skillful with mind-spells... does a lot of harm with them actually, but there was that time she saved the world with some memory spells. If she is through (and she KNOWS through) she might actually crack this thing enough to allow Dinky to be functional, if still impaired.

Is this based partially on any real-world conditions?

#4 · 137w, 2d ago · · ·

:rainbowhuh:wait...is this a fanfiction where derpy...DIES!!!??? *CHOIR SINGING* :pinkiehappy:THANK CELESTIA!!!! I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO KILLS HER!!!! (one look at my username will show how i feel about this)

:derpytongue2: -HURP DURP

:flutterrage: YOU DARE BRING DERP TO MY LAIR!!???? YOU MUST DIE!!!! *kills*

*MISSION ACCOMPLISHED*

>>299604

any resemblance is purely coincidental

#6 · 137w, 2d ago · · ·

Hmmm

I may use this.

Otherwise, it is a sappy little story that I tend to enjoy for some inexplicable reason. Well done :3

#7 · 137w, 2d ago · · ·

I fuckin hate you for making me cry like this

lol, im jk

great writing, I wanna see more, u should try and continue

#8 · 137w, 2d ago · · ·

This should have far more views and comments.

I came close to tearing up, and that's something I just don't do.

#9 · 137w, 2d ago · · ·

oh shit, havent read but looking at pic i can tell imma cry for ever...

get my comedy folder open in advance...

#10 · 137w, 2d ago · · ·

oh, and if it dont get continued, imma be hella depressed...

plzzz? Puppy Please?

#11 · 137w, 2d ago · · ·

>>300152

it is a one shot only

#12 · 137w, 2d ago · · ·

durn. hmm, well then.

i will still read. someday.

Good day.:moustache:

#13 · 137w, 2d ago · · ·

No words, just tears of sadness. :fluttercry:

#14 · 137w, 2d ago · · ·

That was a pretty deep, and emotional story. I feel so sad for Derpy :fluttercry:. Great story though.:heart:

#15 · 137w, 2d ago · · ·

So, so sad.  :fluttercry:

#16 · 137w, 2d ago · · ·

B'aww. Sad. Sweet too. A very interesting take on Screwball and Screwloose. The implications for Dinky are sad too.

Does that mean, to fit the pattern, that Derpy's full name is Screwderp? A mispronunciation of "screwed up"? Awww.

#17 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww that was mean and well written good story

#18 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

This was well done.  

And rather emotionally draining.  

#19 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

You know what...that was just plain depressing. :fluttershysad:

#20 · 137w, 15h ago · · ·

Sad for Derpy.... but not really cuz that will never happen, besides, being Screwloose doesn't suck.

#21 · 136w, 6d ago · · 2 ·

:rainbowlaugh: DA-HAHAHA!!! I didn't cry, weep, or frown the whole time. I GRINNED THROUGH THE WHOLE GODDAMN THING!!!! I also :rainbowkiss: 'd when i was done. (I don't like Derpy. Seeing HER in pain gives ME joy.)

#22 · 136w, 4d ago · · ·

Good work, I enjoyed reading this. You are a really good author, please continue to write more!

>>308592

Don't like Derpy, fine. But do you really have to laugh at a condition that is probably occurring in the real world? I've seen haters before, but those that enjoy the thought of others in pain are sick in the head. Please, for the sake of humanity, don't breed.

#24 · 130w, 6h ago · · ·

This was well done and a nice take on how families deal with mental illness, especially hereditary ones

#25 · 128w, 6d ago · · ·

Very intriguing. Not a fan of sad Derpy stories but this was definitely worth the read.

And by the way, thats a wicked cool picture at the end :pinkiehappy:

#26 · 128w, 6d ago · · ·

Woah, that almost got me tearing up, nice job.

#27 · 128w, 6d ago · · ·

:fluttercry::raritycry: Sad, but very good story, that picture at the end gave me chills when I saw it but the good kind (if that makes any sense).

#29 · 128w, 6d ago · · ·

>>505033>>548919

Thanks for feeding the trolls.

This story was sad on a whole new level.  Anyone who can't experience that emotion is not worth talking to.

#30 · 128w, 6d ago · · ·

>>299625

have you read it?

derpy does not die. it is.. infinitely worse.

#31 · 128w, 6d ago · · ·

Great story. I never full out cried, but i felt my eyes moisten a lot. Im just heartless like that :<

#32 · 128w, 6d ago · · ·

>>549060

A troll yes, and also apparently not the stablest of ponies; definitely best to leave him be.

I didn't think I would actually read this, but since I did, I guess I'll comment. I have to say, making those two Derpy's sisters is an interesting idea, and the idea of a hereditary mental illness that proceeds in stages like that... Although that precise ailment isn't perfectly mirrored by any in our world, it definitely strikes a chord for its similarities to more familiar forms of dementia. And to think that in Screwloose's case, mental illness is actually canon...

Overall, I found it reasonably believable, very much so, and that's what makes it all the more heartbreaking. Well done. :unsuresweetie:

#33 · 128w, 6d ago · · ·

This just pulls at the heartstrings. Honestly, this is one of the few things that have made me even think of crying. It took a little bit to sink in, but the fact that Derpy might...:fluttercry:.

#34 · 128w, 6d ago · · ·

wow this story is just so emotional to bad thats how it ends i really wish derpy could be cured:raritycry::raritycry::raritydespair::raritycry::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::fluttercry::fluttercry:

#35 · 128w, 6d ago · · ·

You actually made me shred a tear for this story. I have never....done that in ages.

I even know where this was headed and yet I still shred that tear.

Everything just looks bleak for Derpy and her daughter and the saddest thing is...

...nothing would change that and the cycle continues. That is where it struck a cord.

#36 · 128w, 6d ago · · ·

Why is it that everytime I read a fanfiction it always makes me tear up :applecry:

#37 · 128w, 6d ago · · ·

Why man why u gotta give me a feel :fluttercry: why

#38 · 128w, 6d ago · · ·

Well.....This is actually the only fanfic to make me have a tear go down my cheek considering how I'm about to go to dream land due to my lack of sleep.....

#39 · 128w, 6d ago · · ·

This was great! :derpyderp2:

#40 · 128w, 5d ago · · ·

....

T.T

#41 · 128w, 5d ago · · ·

I honestly really liked this story. I walked into it thinking that the whole Derpy's backstory thing is done too often, but I must say I was impressed. Well done!

#42 · 128w, 5d ago · · ·

:twilightoops:

Is there an emotion called hatelove? I'm pretty sure there is. I hatelove you, dear sir/ma'am.

#43 · 128w, 5d ago · · ·

Oh... I feel like writing some depressing story like this now...:fluttercry: But i still liked this.

#44 · 128w, 5d ago · · ·

Beautiful writing, though the ending kinda leaves you hanging. Also, although I don't personally find it insulting, you basically said anyone with an astigmatism is crazy. I have an astigmatism. Just in case you get any hate there. Otherwise, great job. :derpytongue2:

#45 · 128w, 5d ago · · ·

Your story was bad and you should feel bad...

But it was so very, very good... :raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair:

It was well written and had a clinical feel that really worked for the story.

I give it :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache: /5 moustaches

#46 · 128w, 5d ago · · ·

This story is the cry-sauce.

>>552657

ambivalence?

#47 · 128w, 5d ago · · ·

i wish fics made me cry more, you guys deserve these tears, but only my little dashie has made me cry so far... anyone got any sad fics for me to cry at?

#48 · 128w, 5d ago · · ·

>>549128 Hey I'm not sure what your referring to in your post, but whatever it is you have no right to hate on other peoples hard work. Projecting your problems on others is wrong. If you were being harrassed then you should report the person's profile and block them. Stop taking trolling personally. It's the Internet, get used to it.

As for the story, nice work. I didn't get what the question dinky was about was, but that's most likely just me being stupid.

#49 · 128w, 5d ago · · ·

A continuation would be nice, but if you leave it at that, I understand.  It has more impact.

Well done.

#50 · 128w, 4d ago · · ·

I took me a while to gather the courage to read this. I just knew by the cover image it was going to make me cry.:fluttercry::fluttercry:

I didn't think I could love Derpy more than I did, but I do now.

This is definately going to my favorites.:derpytongue2:
