I am so omniscient that if there were to be two omnisciences, I would be both.


Derpy loves her daughter more than life itself. She always looks forward to when her little filly will come home with a wide smile across her face, but what can she do when there is no smile? What can she say when the young pony's bright eyes are blackened and bruised? Sometimes, a mother's wings are all she can offer; sometimes, that's not enough.

Now with a reading by the amazing obabscribbler that can be found here!

This is a rather quick piece I just decided to whip up. Nothing special, just an idea that strangely filled over 1000 words. Not something I'm specifically proud of, but it's something. Feel free to rate and comment!

because my read later list isn't long enough...

This confounds me greatly.
Other fiction has played the mother/daughter role or tried to invoke feelings for the characters but they do nothing. Their bonds and plights mean nothing.
And yet...
And yet the Derpy/Dinky family has yet to fail in getting an emotional response. Whenever the two interact, I get this warm fuzzy feeling that is most odd.

Great work, certainly another fine addition to my favorites :D

Perhaps your next story should be a little longer, but besides that, this was good read before going to bed :)

Yeah, fluff those out with more stories.
Derpy and Dinky's fanon personalities are so well engineered to be that way.
Thanks! Yes, this was just a short little thing that I wrote out of procrastination plenty of free time.

Ay man, sometimes you gotta belt a little something out so the ideas flow again. That's what I had to do.



Author, whoever you are, whatever you are doing, just know that you have made several bronies shed epic man tears.

Brovo my freind... Brovo


God hes over dramatic:facehoof:

Still loved the fic

Well time to go beat Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon with sticks.... again.


I kinda found this at random. To my pleasant surprise, it's wonderful. I applaud you!

Should that be Dinky's Protector? :rainbowhuh:
I actually didn't read it.

Damn you...
I got muffin...
Right in the feels...

All of you should listen to this while reading this story.

btw my feels :fluttershyouch:




1761414 Perfect music.

Quite the emotional story. Very well done.

Good story. I rather enjoyed it, but please, do try to keep your verb tenses consistent in future stories. Also, Derpy left the stove on the entire time. I do hope her house didn't burn down while she was speaking with Miss Cheerilee.

Best Wishes,

something bothered me about how you portrayed derpy..... im not talking about the loving mother thing because that was a good thing..... its the fact that i dont feel like its derpy, im not reading about a silly pony (hence the word "derpy")..... im just reading about any plain old mother in equestria. what made derpy unique from the other ponies? nothing, you made her seem like an average mom with no real unique qualities.

other than that is was a good read and im just glad derpy wasnt mean to dinky.

D'aaaaaawwwww This is such a good story. Like and favourite!

Im totally with Dinky on this one. About time someone gave Diamon Tiara and Silver Spoon what they deserve. Seriously, they had it comming since the first episode they appeared in. No sympathy for them from me

So much d'aaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwww in this!

Faved and upvoted.


This is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sweet :') :twilightsmile:

Sequel with Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon getting whats coming to them plz? maybe?
If ou don't mind?:fluttershyouch:

Why can't I hold all these comments? Thank you all for all of your support and wonderful comments and ratings! I'll try to reply to some questions.
Read it and find out :pinkiehappy:
I'm sure it's fine.
In the story it's implied that she's rather clumsy, hence the filly's teasing. That, and the fact that she forgot to turn the stove off.
Maybe. Maybe. But it would have to be at a later date. I have some larger projects that beg my attention more urgently.

I'm waiting for this to become featured...but nothing is happening. :ajbemused: Read it again here, since I got to read it before it wasn't even uploaded. :rainbowwild: Really a lovely story, and it makes me wish I could write things with emotions better. Keep up the great work! :raritywink:

This certainly gave me feels as well. :heart: Well done :rainbowkiss:

So simple, yet so emotional and beautiful. Very well done, you earned yourself a watcher. :twilightsmile:

Dinky hesitated, stuttering as more salty tears began to well up. “They-, they called you dumb, a- and said that you ruin everything and th- that...” the young pony couldn’t stop herself turning and sobbing into her mother’s coat.

- No space between the - and the next letter.

Also, my reaction when I saw people had downvoted...
Who said that!:flutterrage:

(full appluase) I love this story. It feels me with hope. Even though it is short it is amazing.:rainbowdetermined2:

This was beautifully done good sir. I actually cried reading this! :fluttercry:

“That’s why daddy left!” she forced out.

When Dinky said what I lost it. :raritycry:

I only wish my ramblings turned out this good. So all I can say about this story is

1766382 well SHADOWtheHEJHOG, I already love you because of your icon/picture/whatever.:rainbowkiss:
This fic got so many of my feels:pinkiesad2:

And they both go home to have dinner......which is now burned because it was never turned off.......:derpyderp2::derpyderp1:

Fantastic short story! :derpytongue2:

1763345 PLEASE YES another chapter or two would be awesome:derpyderp1:

Strange, a lot of people have been requesting that, and I have to. It would be likely to be a different story entirely, however. That, or I'll use this little piece as somewhat of a prologue for something larger. In any case, that will have to be something for a later date, as I am in the middle of working on a larger shipping story and another one shot.

Masterfully and beautifully done. 5 stars and a :moustache:
Looking forward to more

Well done
there's nothing i can say that hasn't already been said
Derpy is a great mother

1834936 That was such a sweet story. I love these moments with Derpy and Dinky. MUSTACHES! :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

looking at her grey filly with concern.

You realise she is a light purple? :rainbowderp:

Those two have been a real pain in the flank lately,

I would say 'in the RUMP' but whatever you think is best... :twilightsheepish:

I'm not entirely sure on referring to her (Dinky) as a "young mare" in the next-to-last paragraph, though. :applejackunsure:

But it's still a very sweet Derpy/Dinky story. :raritystarry::pinkiehappy::twilightsmile::yay::eeyup::derpytongue2:

Purplish-gray, so good enough for me. I took on a policy of "close enough" for this story, not realizing that it would become my most popular.

As well, she is called a young mare at the end basically from the mind of Derpy as she observes how her filly has grown.
