Love this story, the feels :raritydespair:

I know, I know. That's no excuse,

I don't know if the mistake is intentional because Rainbow Dash may not be the most technically proficeint mare, but if it's not then it should be: I know, I know, that's no excuse,

Jeez. It's sort of depressing to see this sort of thing.

^.^

4933566
Kind of the point, I suppose.
It's meant to be a sad story.

4933698 Feels aside, what really happened to Derpy? Did she die, leave..?

4933895
I think she just got lost.

Any day now, some helpful Fillydelphian will tell her she's actually in the wrong town and give her directions back to Ponyville. :derpytongue2:

ALL THE FEELS

4934334
ALL of them? :rainbowderp:

One of the things that I really like about this one is that the feels hit the reader so suddenly. At first, I was a bit unsure on what was going on, but I soon realized what they were. Then boom. I got hit with the dreaded feels that everyone speaks of.

4935983
Yep, I deliberately made the letters a bit vague at first, to let things build up before the realization hits. :twilightsmile:

4937030
:derpytongue2:

Bah, I am immune to your feels. My heart was forged from cold, hard iron! :trixieshiftleft:

Also, it's Derpy. She probably bumbled into some grand adventure and is busy saving the world via hilarious hijinks or something like that. She'll be back.

4937689
My thoughts exactly! :twilightsmile:

Why do I let myself read fics with a sad tag? It never ends well for my emotions... :applecry:

I've got to ask:
Just how long has Derpy been gone for, anyway?

4938772
I'd say about a couple months.
She'll probably be back soon. :derpytongue2:

4939755
We can certainly hope so.

Still feel really sorry for Dinky, though...

I've read my fair share of FiMfics, but I don't think any of them have left me wanting to make my own sequel like this one does. It's just too sad and too open to interpretation.

4950270
Go for it! :twilightsheepish:
If you make a halfway decent sequel, I'll link to it. :twilightsmile:

Meh, Derpy's probably having the time of her life in Los Pegasus. :rainbowlaugh:

4952120
Yep! :twilightsmile:
And also unwittingly preventing a war with the griffons. :derpytongue2:

Dear citizens of Ponyville,

I'm sorry I got lost. I just don't know what went wrong!

Anyways, I've been in Saddle Arabia, helping a Saddle Arabian princess find her true love!

I should be back soon!

Love and Muffins,
Derpy.

I was actually a little put off by the fact that Rainbow's and Dinky's letters had proper grammar. If you actually want me to believe Rainbow was the who is wrote it . . . well, she just doesn't seem like someone who learned every rule of comma placement. And Dinky is a bit young to know proper grammar, as well. I know I didn't write like that when I called my mother "mommy."

Though, overall, I enjoyed this.

4957361
Hm... yeah... but I thought grammar mistakes in there would distract from the point of the story.

4958177
I can't speak for everyone, but for me, it would have provided added immersion. In perfecting the grammar and making it as least obtrusive as you could, you actually made it stand out, because of how out of character it felt.

Of course, I'm not saying that I wanted the letters to be jibberish, either.

Sad with quite some implications...

A great short collection highlighting our favorite background pony, and reminding everyone what a value she is, because sometimes it's easy to forget. Very nice story. Keep on the Derpy lovin'! :derpytongue2:

I liked the story. I will continue reading this story. Something's telling me there's something hidden within this story. I must dig it out.

5026694
Good luck. ^.^

Oh my god, the feels :fluttercry:. MAKE A SEQUEL :flutterrage:!!!!!! COME BACK DERPY :fluttershbad:!!!!!!!

5132485
Don't worry, she'll be back soon, with stories to tell, no doubt. :derpytongue2:

Fascinating. You don't know what you have until she's gone. Somewhere. (My guess would be another plane of existence, but that's my Ditzy, not yours.)

An excellent ode to best pony's presence in the community. Thank you for it. :derpytongue2:

Don't think I can handle this many feels :fluttercry:
great story though!

5154609
You asked for it! :rainbowwild:
Go read some comedy or other feel-good story. :twilightsmile:

5154615 I know I did, I was just joking around as always.
FOOLED YA :rainbowwild:

Where the Hell do they send the letters!? Also what's "that weird guitar thing" Vinyl is talking about?

5177509
They just put them in the mailbox, and I don't know. :derpytongue2:
(Vinyl never told me.)

5179865 wellI imagine it to be the gastophone; Which appears in the comics "Gaston" written by Franquin. And it always has very destructive results when played.

Ah, shippage. How nice of you to poke your head out again.

5184158
Sounds about right! :rainbowkiss:

5184550
Huh?

5185008 had nothing better to point out from the whole submission other than the cheesy confession AJ made in the end. Can't really do anything about it, though. Since for as long as there will be fan fiction, there will be shipping. It is an unavoidable fact.

5185245 AJ I meant Carrot Top, of course.

Aww, that was an enjoyable little short story. A compilation of letters for Derby...

The feels.

D'awww So many feels!!! Dinky's letter hit me right in the feels the most

5306972
Thanks! ^.^
I do really enjoy this one.
