Silent Whisper


To do: write short bio

E
Source

Being a mailpony is often an unrewarding job. You deliver letters and packages, and sometimes you mix things up and other ponies get upset. Still, there's got to be something positive that can come out of such a dull and thankless career, and Derpy is determined to make the most of it.

Even if she never gets any credit for the effort she puts into it.

A very nice slice of life short story

...is it normal for you and your friends to write to each other in morse code? :rainbowderp:

While editing, Fuzzy said that, instead of Starlight's pencil just sitting there when she grumps at it, it should tap out a message to her. Presumably enchanted by Trixie, or something. I rejected his idea with the rebuttal that it's a story about random acts of kindness, not an Ouija board session.

It was around 2am when I posted the story, and both of us were tired, so he commented in Morse code (that his idea was still better), and I replied back (that I like it how it is), and others followed suit.

Tl;dr- Fuzzy's weird and I'm weird and we both should get more sleep.

Now that's some fuzzy logic.

Anyway, this was a short but quite pleasant read. Little anonymous acts to cheer ponies up sounds like an excellent fit for Derpy!

So wait, I'm seeing all these people talk normally now! Was the morse code thing not mandatory!? :facehoof:

Not mandatory, just fun!

:pinkiehappy:A chorus of Pinkies bounce behind me, chanting "fun".:pinkiehappy:

What a cute story! :raritywink:

so shines a good deed in a weary world

Yo, author. I have a short bio for you to use.

"I am Silent Whisper, and I have written a really good feel-good story that deserves to get a few thousand views. I show promising writing talent and have exceptional story-telling skills."

You can borrow that bio if you want. After all, it suits you perfectly after reading this wonderful little tale. :)

RISE! RISE AND TAP, ENCHANTED PENCILS! NO LONGER SHALL YOU LIVE IN OBSCURITY! TAKE YOUR RIGHTFUL PLACE AS THE GRAPHITE LEADERS OF EQUESTRIA!

Derpy ought to work for Hallmark. This was light, cute and fluffy, so it gets an upvote.

So adorably heartwarming, have a fave.

Aw that was a really sweet story! :pinkiesmile:

This needs to be a series where each chapter is one letter and the reaction of the character.

Upvoted for that author's note :pinkiehappy:

Now I'm imagining Starlight in The Sorcerer's Apprentice, but with Communist pencils instead of workaholic brooms.

Spoilers right on the cover.

How about a black outline!??
Keep the mystery...

MOAR!! We need MOAR of Derpy delivering sweet letters to EVERYBODY!! <3 <3 <3

This was adorable ^w^ You deserve the front page and I'm glad I read it.

Cute and well written, but a bit... I don't really want to say "pointless" because that sounds a bit too mean, but it kinda doesn't go anywhere and the ending seems a bit abrupt. I think you simply didn't use the best structure.

It would probably have worked better if you started with the mysterious letters showing up, and everypony wonders what is going on (perhaps assuming Twilight was the author, Princess of Friendship and all that), then in the end Twilight figures out it's Derpy who explains it all. Something like that.

Sequal. the masses that have read this story demand it.

more!

I enjoy this characterization

I gave the story a like to get the discount, but I don't write a comment.

Starlight can solve the problem by her own.

To make this story perfect, Derpy needs to have a bad day. Like a terrible, horrible, no-good bad day. And then have encouraging letters show up from everypony in town!

I might use that in a second chapter... hmm

This was adorable
Great job! :twilightsmile:

Some days, she blew bubbles outside her house, but even that got a little boring.

Referring to her cutiemark?
In Twilight s book about cutie pox you see HER MARK... on a diving pony :)
I could imagine she uses her wings (instead hooves) to swim underwater. Derpy style!

Ps. Yes one name is bubbles, but Pinkie isn't made of pie either ;)

I don't know if you should eventually reveal who it is or not, but I would definitely love a second (or series of) chapters and/or sequels with other ponies! Spike too!

(If you did decide to reveal it was Derpy though, maybe it could be done via everypony else noticing she hadn't gotten any notes when they asked, and then worrying she was being left out? Just a suggestion...)
