Brony, furry, and video game addict. At least I have a winning personality! :D


On Princess Celestia's request, Derpy Hooves must go on a mission to unite two very different cultures. But how will she convince them to put aside their differences and make amends? Especially after how much trouble they've caused each other. And what is so special about Derpy that makes her the right mailmare for the job?

What began as a simple delivery job will quickly become a matter of Equestrian security.

Cute :3 Poor Derpy didn't get to eat any of her muffins. I'm interested to see where this is going

2619191 I'm not entirely sure how to respond to this. :twilightsheepish:

2619241 Glad you like it so far! The next chapter has already been started and will likely be up by the end of the weekend. :derpytongue2:


This is good. Surprising, but good

Enjoyable, I liked it, Derpy is my favorite pony, had me chuckle a few times, you done well for this, I shall be watching for more:ajsmug:

2626598 Thanks a million! I always love to know that people are enjoying my work. :pinkiehappy:

I hope you like the upcoming chapters as much as this one, if not more! :raritywink:

2626854 It certainly is a good fic, a good read, I liked it:twilightsmile:

Oh noes, this is going to end either verry good or very badly...either way, shenanigans will ensure!

2627775 Shenanigans are the best type of nanigans! Or are they the best type of shes? Ah well. I'm sure it doesn't really matter. :derpytongue2:

2628501 Why would you say such a thing? She's only going into almost certainly hostile territory with the royal crest of a country's most hated enemy. What could go wrong? :derpyderp1:

2628633 I wouldn't be surprised, knowing a certain royal bitch, if the letter says 'eat this one, then we can have a truce'

Good, please continue.:pinkiehappy::derpytongue2::moustache:

Hold up....Derpy has to go speak with Queen Chrysails, the Goddess of illusions? Oh THIS is going to be good, and that's an amazing idea Shining Armor, keep back talking the ruler of Equestria, not to mention the Goddess of the Sun, no negative shit will come from that.

This was well made, just remember it's Elements of Harmony and Badlands, though one little treasure is NOT worth maybe being killed for though....whose to say Chrysails will even allow her to speak? Shit just got real:facehoof:

Saw it coming. Dinky, you little rascal. :derpytongue2:

1. Haven't heard that song in years :rainbowlaugh:


This a great chapter and story. Cant wait for the next chapter! :D

Dinky to the rescue! You go, girl!

Hah, when Bit recited that pledge, I first thought Shining said something like "Only an imposter would practice that pledge enough to recite it so quickly!" Then again, can't have the infiltration foiled that quickly...

Thats a nice story you have here, maybe post it in some groups, for more followers

:pinkiehappy:Here's hoping the diplomacy works!

:ajbemused: The guards spied on Derpy, the changelings captured her. Both seem pretty ruthless.

2656609 To be fair though, most of the guards that were spying on Derpy were changelings anyways. :twilightblush:
I get where you're coming from though.

OH, goody. So much for diplomacy. Time for Achievements in Asskicking.

You are damn good at cliffhangers :P

2656815 We haven't seen it from Chrysalis's point of view. Who knows, maybe :trollestia: actually wanted her to get captured, and had Shining's guards replaced. She is the manipulator her, after all.

Ah, the wonders of changeling impersonation. Roughly half of all fanfics with changelings end up paranoid, "pod people"-esque mysteries where you can never be sure who is and isn't replaced. (The other half is "renegade changeling tries to find a new life among the ponies" stories. Good stuff.) My favorite was the one where the entirety of Ponyville - including the Mane 6, Luna and many inanimate objects - turned out to be changelings working at cross-purposes.

I'm being glib, of course. Story is being entertaining still. Will be interesting to see how they get out of this, though.

2657281 Thank you for the compliment, but I don't know if it's still considered a cliffhanger if the next chapter comes out the next day. :twilightblush: I think I'll give the next chapter a bit of time before uploading.

2658639 I can't say I'm familiar with the specific story you mentioned, but one changeling story I really like is called "Changeling's Story." Yeah the title isn't too original, but it's about Twilight being turned into a changeling queen and taking over Ponyville. It's really cool! Anyways, I'm glad you're enjoying it so far! :pinkiehappy:

A fanfic starring Derpy where she actually IS good at her job? What are the odds?

Great first chapter, btw. Though I only discovered this one thanks to it being added to the Shining Armor story group, since apparently Shining Armor has a pretty significant role.

...Why do I get the feeling that he's going to be the straight stallion to Derpy's silliness?

2661826 Regardless of where you discovered it, I'm quite glad you did! I'm glad you like the first chapter, and I hope you like the next ones as much if not even more.

And yes, Shining Armor is an important character in this story. Though maybe not exactly like you expect. :raritywink:

Shining Armor DOES have a point, y'know... It could've easily been a case of "Strawman has a Point," but you managed to avoid that quite nicely.

And suddenly I get the feeling that Celestia's sudden desire for peace between the ponies and changelings was actually part of Chrysalis's plot...

Though I can't help but wonder the specific time frame this takes place in regards to the show. It seems to take place between the Season 3 premiere and the Season 3 finale, since Shining Armor is the prince of the Crystal Empire, but Twilight's not an alicorn yet.

...Actually, have you ever noticed that the time frame of the show itself is a little hard to figure out? Most notably in season 1, where episode 11 took place at the end of winter, but episode 13 took place at the beginning of fall. I always figured that all of events of season 1 is about a one-year timespan, with 3 months or so in between the end of season 1 and the beginning of season 2. Whereas season 2 is only about 7-9 months, and Shining Armor and Cadance's wedding took place roughly around springtime (around the same time as it originally aired).

2661927 To be honest, I figured that this story takes place sometime between the Equestria Games inspector episode and Twilight becoming an alicorn. That way there's been a decent amount of time for the changelings to recover from their defeat and get some infiltration going.

Wow can't wait for more

2677235 And just what power might that be? :derpyderp1:

That's just PERFECT! As if the trip was not to hard and serious enough, not only does she need to try to make peace with the Queen of the Changelings and the Goddess of Illusions for Equesrtia but she needs to watch for her daughter? This is going to go SO well:facehoof:

Damn, it's tragic when no one believes a child, that's messed up. Poor Dinky, something seems off about where Derpy is heading....I don't like it:ajbemused: Also an ice cream shop? You would expect him to be more serious, though I can understand him wanting to relax from all the stress.

Derpy could not kick their ass with her hooves?:applejackunsure: Seriously, their hooves are hard as buck:facehoof: Anyway this chapter seems......to be one that's been done 40,000 times but it's rated E so there are bound to be repeats:facehoof: NEXT!!

This.....is going to go BAD!!!! Then again it's Chrysails so it's naturally going to go wrong, I love how Gods just toy with the mortals it's always amusing:yay:

Shit, things are getting heated but please for the love of Luna, don't make it so Chrysails just decides to be the good pony all of the sudden, she's lived for eons, she knows how mortals are and as a Goddess she bound to be quite prideful and doubtful, besides such a change takes a very long time to develop, it'd be like Cadence becoming evil all of the sudden once she realizes she has an entire kingdom under her command, she's the Princess/Goddess of Love and that the Crystal Empire is not a part of Equestria, it may last a few years if she does but it has to be thought of carefully and with very good reason, though it is possible, Gods like to repeat themselves just like mortals:facehoof:

None of us ever learn, eh? Besides, it'd be nice to see a new change other then "Happy ending" for once:ajbemused: But that's my option, I just realized that no mortal pony other then her followers obey and worship Chrysails, what is she to good enough for the other races:flutterrage:

2677797 Don't worry about Chryssy going all goody four horseshoes. I think I've got something planned that will keep people satisfied. After all, I wouldn't bother writing this story if I didn't plan on writing it properly. :derpytongue2:

2677335 The power of voodoo!

...I dunno why I referenced Labyrinth just now. :derpytongue2:

2679876 Probably because-


I may have to find a way to put that reference in a chapter now... Okay. I think I've got a good way to do it. Crazy weird reference time, HOORAY! :pinkiecrazy:

Jump magic jump!

...ok, gonna stop spamming this with unrelated posts now :derpytongue2:

You know Chrysalis is written well when you can't tell when she's lying...

And that last line... :fluttershysad:

So... Derpy is the pony equivalent of Gentaro Kisaragi. She can befriend anypony, even those who aren't really ponies.

That is awesome.

:pinkiesmile: i think this is my favorite chapter :derpytongue2:
