An average morning with Dinky and her mother.

From overenthusiastic alarm clocks to ballistic toast, Dinky must ensure that her mother wakes up in time for work while at the same time not being late for school herself.

DAWW! THIS IS AWESOME! :pinkiehappy: :derpytongue2:

Super sweet as always, loved it ^_^

*Girlish squeal*
So adorable!
*Another girlish squeal*

Wait a tic... We Fre-men... Wee Free Men, oh dear the Nac Mac Feegles are in Equestria.

Good little story you have, simple and short but an excellent job at capturing the Doo Family. More please. ~Celestia's Paladin

You don't get enough simple family life in stories. You captured an average morning for a non-average family perfectly.

If the gnomes riding worms was a Dune reference, I love you. And if not, well I love you anyway cause this fic is awesome.

Lovely! I am definitely looking forward to more of this; plus the memory song for locations was awesome.

Simple, quick and cute. I like. Keep it up! :twilightsmile:

ah-hem. . . SQUEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! :rainbowkiss:

This was so sweet and cute. It made me feel all warm and happy inside. Dinky is too adorable. You know, most of the time the story revolves around Ditzy and her love of Dinky. It's nice to see it done the other way around. It's really well written and is simply delightful. Bravo!

There aint a big enough smile emocon for what I want to post, so this'll have to do

Very very cute. This was a fun read. :derpytongue2:

...Wee Free Men... you just made a Discworld reference. In an MLP fanfic. About Ditzy and Dinky. ALL OF MY STARS. TAKE THEM. <3

I agree - a very funny, well written story! I wish it was longer (maybe a few extra chapters? :) ) though.


well done. like to see more short tales of equestria :pinkiehappy::rainbowkiss:

Very cute :twilightblush:


I'm glad I wasn't the only one to notice that reference

Darn those toast-stealing gnomes!!!! :flutterrage:

Very nice story. I notice that Ditzy Doo is the underdog favorite of the fandom. :derpytongue2:

48366 The instant I noticed that, this story crossed the line into 5-star territory.


So that makes it at least three people to notice, excellent I was getting worried by the lack of Discworld fans around here.
They ain't gnomes, they are picties

50208 There's a great Discworld-crossover fic I've been reading, wherein Pinkie swaps places with Discworld's grim reaper. Needless to say, it's quite amusing. XD

Discworld reference! I fucking love you! :pinkiehappy:
And i also love you because this was just beautiful... i request you do something with Rarity and sweetie belle or twilight and spike or something like that... please?
50257 oh yes i loved that one... death was quite the colt no?

50648 Indeed! I can't wait for the next chapter XD

Sixth heart-attack this morning...why? Oh wait...yeah that's why. It's the gnomes I tell you!! They steal my toast every morning! :derpytongue2:
You are being recognized by the herd, they are allowing you to live...for now. :pinkiecrazy:

And now, I sign off!
Godspeed you magnificent bastard-BlazingShadowBrony

A very lovely feel-good story. I like your use of language, neccessary in a story when not much happens or develops per se. I also likes the characterisation of the characters: Dinky is bright but obviously still a small child, Ditzy has some problems but isn't actually disabled (which isn't wrong, but seems more suitable for a tragic story of how she manages to hold a job or raise a kid).

That was lovely. Normally I hate fics that just end like that, but I found this one enjoyable.
I would have liked to hear the reason behind the rhyme, though.

D'awww! The story is sweet without being saccharine.

You're a talented writer. Thank you for sharing!

SOOO MOTHERF*CKING CUTE :derpytongue2::heart::heart::raritystarry::rainbowkiss::heart::twilightblush:


^ That sums it up well enough, I think. Yeah, this was pretty damn cute. Which is a good thing; Ditzy and Dinky don't seem to get all that many lighthearted comedy stories, from what I've seen. So this was definitely a welcome change of pace. 4/5.

Oh, and the gnomes and wormholes sequence was hilarious. I laughed for about a minute straight at that.

very cute story, thank you for writing it!

Very nice short, Dinky is so adorbs! :yay: Thanks for sharing.

I loved this one! My favorite bg pony and my favorite bg filly! You captured the characters well, but showed Ditzy/Derpy isn't disabled, she's just a little scatterbrained.

Short nut sweet, and I liked the rhyme as well.


That little song at the end... That's... Ditzy came up with that to tell Dinky about safe places she could go if she was scared, didn't she? I mean, the flying bit for Fluttershy is a bit weird, but eh, I think we can forgive Ditzy for that one mistake, she is a pegasus after all.


This is one of the short but sweeter ones. Thank you for such a good read.

Thumbs up and shelving.

Some specifics I liked:
1. Quick as a flash, Ditzy leapt into the air and caught the toasted projectiles. It was quite a challenge; that toaster could fire through walls. Dinky clapped her hooves together as her mother returned to the ground with a bow.
- Awesome.

2. Love that poem/song!
