For the first time ever, Derpy Hooves is taking the day off. Why would such a hard-working mailmare abandon her duties? That day, when Dinky comes home from school, her mom's strange behavior leads her to discover something that will change both their lives.

NOTE: This is a story from the fandom's early days, written during season one. This portrayal of Derpy is based on early fanon about her personality and nature. It's not meant to contradict the canon personality she eventually got.

Wow. There's a blast from the past!

I remember reading this... what, four years ago? Four and a half? Anyway, it's nice to see it pop up here, even if it hasn't necessarily aged all that well. Glad you put it up.

Wow. There's a blast from the past. I wonder when the fixfics will start showing up here.....

Saddest story I ever read... :fluttershysad:
blast from the past, indeed...

I'm not crying! I'm... I'm... I'm sweating from my eyes!

Oh man. I didn't realize you wrote this. Great to see it on Fimfic after all these years!

With that, she left Derpy alone in an empty house.

“Mail's here!” said Spike. “Looks like your books arrived, Twilight.”

I do believe you lost your scene change marker there, though.

I did, thanks for catching that! It's fixed now.

:raritycry:I...I'm not-:raritycry: This is too sad!! Whhhhyyyy!!??
if it was your intention to make your readers feel things, you have succeeded

Glad to see this on here. This was one of the fics that originally inspired me to start writing fanfiction. And, of course, writing fanfiction ended up inspiring me to learn how to write, which got me into teaching, which got me a scholarship to college...

So I guess, in a way, this fic got me into college. Huh. Funny how these things work, huh? :raritywink:

...and now I'm crying.

Haah, I miss word salad Derpy. :(

I hope you don't mind, but I love this fic so much I've adapted it into a full-cast audio drama on YouTube:

I just listened to Scribblers reading of this, and you wrote a beautiful story! :pinkiesad2:

I remember this. God... right to my feelings.

If this is from the earliest day, why was it just two years ago when we're over 6

Heavy hit to the feels.
Well written and frighteningly convincing.

What? No, im not crying! What gave you that idea?
I've been chopping onions! (But dayum that hhurt) :applecry:

Oh! This is so sad.

I had to pause the fic, take a deep breath. I'll continue later.
