This one, Your kind and honest opinion, is my favorite of the bunch.


Glad you liked it. That one went down quite smoothly when we reached the critical feedback round, so I'm not surprised. Thanks anyway for the comment. :twilightsmile:

Really nice, Short but Good. I Love how you made dinky.

A delightful collection, especially the ones with Best Filly. (Not that I'm biased or anything. :raritywink:)


To both of you: Sorry I delayed so long in replying. My fault entirely. Your comments are much appreciated, I assure you! :pinkiesmile:

There is no bias when it comes to Best Filly. There is only the purity and the glory of Dinkiness.

Seriously, though: Yes, Dinky's character has been growing on me a lot during the last year or so. If I ever come back to write ponyfic some more, she's likely to make more appearances. Thanks again for leaving me comments. I'm very happy you enjoyed the stories so much. :twilightsmile:

Your Welcome, she's my favorite Background filly. Made a few Stories featuring her myself and got more planned


I'm honestly surprised she hasn't surpassed 1000 stories already on the site, given how popular she is. I'd have expected much more. But she's not far off, which is a good sign, so write on, brave author! Write on. :raritywink:
