The Ancient Egyptian and the Modern Dinky

“Miss Sambula…” Dinky said over her clipboard.

Uncomfortably seated in Dinky's lounge, Somnambula winced. “Somnambula.”

“Uh… When you went up against the sphinx, what was it like?”

“Remind me why…?”

“History homework!” Dinky beamed. “Cheerilee says recent history is more reliable because there’s witnesses around. But a witness one thousand years old…”

“I see. Creative.”

“Thanks! More tea?”

“Five sugars, please. This modern tea isn’t sweet like my homeland’s…”


Getting back to the sphinx…”

“Miss Dinky?”


A heavy sigh. “Please understand. I’m honoured, but we are one thousand years apart. I can’t comprehensively convey my old experiences to new minds. The differences between then and now are too great.”

“I disagree.”

Surprised, Somnambula caught Dinky’s determined scowl. “Indeed?”

“Time, culture, tea: that’s surfacey stuff. Cheerilee says all ponies are ponies inside.”

Eventually, Somnambula beamed at her new friend. “Wise scholar, this Cheerilee.”

“You bet! Now, about this sphinx…”

Glad you liked it. That one went down quite smoothly when we reached the critical feedback round, so I'm not surprised. Thanks anyway for the comment. :twilightsmile:

Really nice, Short but Good. I Love how you made dinky.

A delightful collection, especially the ones with Best Filly. (Not that I'm biased or anything. :raritywink:)


To both of you: Sorry I delayed so long in replying. My fault entirely. Your comments are much appreciated, I assure you! :pinkiesmile:

There is no bias when it comes to Best Filly. There is only the purity and the glory of Dinkiness.

Seriously, though: Yes, Dinky's character has been growing on me a lot during the last year or so. If I ever come back to write ponyfic some more, she's likely to make more appearances. Thanks again for leaving me comments. I'm very happy you enjoyed the stories so much. :twilightsmile:

Your Welcome, she's my favorite Background filly. Made a few Stories featuring her myself and got more planned


I'm honestly surprised she hasn't surpassed 1000 stories already on the site, given how popular she is. I'd have expected much more. But she's not far off, which is a good sign, so write on, brave author! Write on. :raritywink:

Well, if you want to give my Stories a try, feel free to do so. I also made Stories with other Background foals Like Noi, Ruby and tootsie
