For months now, Ponyville Schoolhouse has enjoyed peace and harmony, but such tranquility can never last. A new bully has risen to power, striking fear into everypony at school, and her name is Dinky Doo! When she's not listening attentively in class, taking a test, or doing her homework, she becomes the baddest of the bad. It falls to Miss Cheerilee to set the filly back on the straight and narrow before it's too late, at least according to Dinky herself.

Glad you all enjoyed it! Sometimes, you just gotta write something short, simple, and cute.

I could not, for the life of me, figure out where this was going until we actually got to the twist. Impressive.

She almost wished the three were better liars so their failed attempts at subtly wouldn’t spike her heart rate.

Subtlety

***

Fun little bit of silliness. I love how, other than her, nobody - characters, writer or readers - was buying Dinky as a bully. Not to mention how, even when she's trying to fake bad grades, she does it in a way that requires care, studiousness and diligence.

Shoulda released this today my dude, its Mother's day. :rainbowlaugh: Regardless that was a nice story.

Oh really? Nice! Tags usually spoil things.

Spelling... my biggest weakness. :applecry:
I had a lot of fun writing it and trying to get into her head of bad behavior. Smart filly, but she's still a filly.

That was yesterday for me, but I also didn't think about that aspect when writing it. Hadn't even remembered Mother's Day was coming up when editing it. I was more caught up with Ditzy Doo discovering she's a lesbian after a relationship with a stallion than anything else with her. Also, if anyone is wondering, I wrote Cheerilee as bi.

I would love to see a sequel where Cheery and Ditzy go on a date :D

Pretty cute story, (Even if it was a little hard to follow sometimes)

:twilightsmile:

I am tempted if I can find a story in there, but if I do it'll be a while. Got Electro Swing and Unchanging Truths to get through first.

One of the prereaders actually pointed that out which sent me to the drawing board to try to clarify things as they went along. Gonna guess it was the section after the first line break where I wanted to jar the reader alongside Cheerilee since she was lost in her thoughts. Glad you still enjoyed it regardless.

Awwwww

Read it on a whim... that was absolutely adorable. I loved it.

Thanks for giving this one a shot! Glad you had a good time.

Oh, this was delightful. I'm always a sucker for a good Best Filly story, and this was very good indeed. And I always appreciate "For peat's sake" being used as a pony exclamation. Lovely stuff all around. Thank you for it, and best of luck in the judging.

Awwww!

'Twas quite a cute story, mate!

Loved Dinky's plan for how silly it is, yet completely logical to a young filly's mind, and of course the CMC had to join in or it wouldn't have been proper shenanigans :trollestia:

As I said in my blog post, Dinky is almost a cheat code for writing cute fics, but I'm glad you enjoyed my take on her. I do enjoy "For peat's sake" a lot as well as my own continuity for explaining why "For Pete's Sake" could exist in this universe. From my undetstanding, it derives from St. Peter, so gotta figure out how to substitute those cultural artifacts we take for granted.

And we can't forget "Sweet Celestia!" in place of "Jesus Christ!"

Yay! the premise was belivable. I don't have kids, so I had to run the fic by Jymbroni who is a father of two to help check a few things for me in the prereading. Wouldn't have been as good without his help.

Such a vile, irredeemable monster. To tartarus with her.

I will gladly give you a thumbs up for this, and a moustache!

I quite enjoyed this tale, and its well-meant mischief.

Okay where did you find that link? Also sequel or a epilogue to this.

I will wear it well. :moustache:

Thanks for giving my entry a read as well. Good luck in the May Pairings contest!

From my reply to ThePeer:

Awww, what a cute ship.

“Oh, wait. I mean, go ahead! I diamond-dog-dare you!"

Hmm. Dinky created a slight breach of etiquette by skipping the double dare, and going right for the throat. :trollestia:

“No.” Cheerilee shook her head. That was not what she wanted to hear. “Is this what I think it is?”

Sweetie Belle tapped her chin as she looked over the table. “There’s no love poison this time?”

Well, that IS a big plus, Cheerilee, admit it. :twilightsmile:

I'm surprised Cheerilee didn't catch on to what the intended plan was sooner. I figured it out the moment it became clear Dinky wanted Cheerilee to meet with Ditzy. :trixieshiftright:

Thats' just how BAD Dinky is! Rebel!

Well, that IS a big plus, Cheerilee, admit it.

1. Cheerilee doesn't have [Romance] tags to look at.
2. Catching on too quickly puts the story in a failed state/makes the story less interesting.

“—Hurt Scootaloo!” Apple Bloom corrected, to the exasperation of her friend Sweetie Belle watching from the sidelines.

That's hilarious 😂

A shock of panic shot through the pegasus as she popped back up in a blur of orange. “Woah-ho-hoh! Would you look at that? I think I suddenly feel better through the magic of friend—”

"Not another word!"

She feels better but you are killing me XD

“It’s a phase!” Scootaloo whispered into Dinky’s ear. “I mean it’s not a phase! Also, you’re not my real mom!”

Hahahajahasn i give up!
Habe your like! Please i surrender 🤣

I'm happy to see that my dumb jokes landed. :ajsmug:

Thank you for the like, the laughter, and for enjoying the fic!

It is a very cute ending but also a shame the humor had to back to back seat ;p

I will take a peek if you got more comedy somewhere 😀

This is phenomenal. Made me laugh. Almost made me cry. It made my heart feel warm and that's about the best compliment I can give.

How I wish there was more coming, but I guess I'll have to just check out your other stuff.

Wonderful short.

Oh that was a pretty wholesome read ^^
