A day in the life, and a glimpse into the mind, of Ponyville's favorite mail carrier and single mom. But if she had the choice of any one day for everyone to read about, it probably wouldn't be this one...

Is this the one that I read on Fanfiction a while back? If so, instant 5-stars

Edit: or was it EQD?

Oh jeez I love this story!

You, sir, get a blueberry muffin.... and all my stars. =]

Thanks for the kind words, all.

It was never on Fanfiction.net, but it was posted on EqD. I've been using Google Docs, but I've been persuaded to give this place a try. I'm liking it so far. Just waiting for my other stories to pass moderation; once they do, you'll get an early peek at something I'm working on before I submit it to EqD. ;)

haa I read this on EQD and loved it so much ~ 5stars :D and faving! :heart:

Now put up the sequel with Dinky and Sparkler!


That's on the mods' heads, not mine. Everything, including my new in-progress multi-chapter story, is already submitted and awaiting approval.

Another EqD visitor here! This has to be one of the best Derpy stories out there. Bar none. :yay:


I'm so happy to see this fic here, and to hear that your other stories are being processed. Your Derpy is an awesome Derpy :twilightsheepish:
Er, Ditzy, but whatever, You know what I mean. :derpytongue2:

Ah, a Big Mac X Ditzy Doo shipping.
This should turn out to be very sweet. Keep up the good work lad.

Instant 5 Stars.

I've waited so long for a sequel to this.

I dunno what it is... but for some reason, i've never read a fanfiction that featured any sort of Ditzy/Mac pairing that was any less than BRILLIANT.

this is no exception. favoriting for sure.

I don't like how your treating derpy name (Sure derpy means doing something stupid, but it doesn;t mean BEING stupid.) but at least your not making a big deal over something that is only 1 min and 30 second long


This story predates The Last Roundup by a good long time, if that's what you're referring to; it's only new to this site. That episode wasn't a factor at all.

I reread it again for good measure. Always a nice fic. I can't wait to read the sequel. I have also started following you so I can track your future work that you post here. Definitely an instant five star fic

Like everyone else, I read this when it was posted on EqD, and have been waiting for it to appear here so I can say how much I love it.

I especially like the "It's like living in a town full of mind-readers" line. Many people with the same problem as Ditzy (who are easy to find in my usual social circles of hard-core computer geeks) use that term, so I assume it means you either have personal experience or have done your research.

A little from column A, and a little from column B... :twilightsheepish:

I remember this story. Fives and Favs all around. :derpytongue2::heart:

even more proof that everyone thought derpys name was ditzy not so long ago :scootangel:

Lovely story and i cant wait to read the rest of your stories, hope the mods hurry up!:pinkiehappy:

Everything I have is up and visible now, go ahead and check it out.

Ah, the return of an old favourite, for the very first time! A pleasure to read and re-read.

DERPY AND BIG MAC I LOVE IT:derpyderp1::heart::eeyup:

:heart::derpyderp1: Great story. I'm happy you decided to join us over here on Fimfiction, so much easier to track and give/get feedback here.

I love this one. :derpyderp2: I felt so sorry for Ditzy by the end, there. :raritydespair: But at least she earned that happy ending too. This is my Ditzy, too, btw.

Wonderful story! I love your characterization of Ditzy.

Long? This is only like 3k words. Try reading a 30000 word one if you think this is long (btw im not hating on ths fic im just sayin...).
I loved how mac actually got more than the occaisonal "eeyup".
One problem though (and this is entirely my fault), is that every time ditzy derpy talks, i imagine her voice from the show, and it completely throws me off. Dont know why, but again, its my fault. Cant wait to read the sequels, and you sir, get 5 stars and a follow. :heart: :derpytongue2: :eeyup: :heart:

I've liked many fics, but never loved one; and by far my favorite rendering of Ditzy!
Also, a Ditzy+Mac pairing - never saw that one coming.

Truly this is one of the best fan fics I have ever read. You capture the characters perfectly and have created a story that could easily be featured in Season 2 (apart from the alcoholic references of course)
Well done on your commendable story telling skills, have all my stars. I only wish I had more to give... :twilightsmile:

Oh right lol... :facehoof:
Well i feel derpish.. Sorry i usually have like 8 tabs open at once and like half of them are fics... So i got them all mixed up

Best shipping.

awsome story

"Hey, one more thing!" "what?" DERP:derpytongue2::derpytongue2::derpytongue2::derpytongue2::derpytongue2::derpytongue2::derpytongue2::derpytongue2::derpytongue2::derpytongue2:how sweet is big mac?:eeyup: is there going tobe a seqeal?

Awesome! I believe there was a sequel? If so, I'm off! :pinkiehappy:

I loved it. Especially the beginning. That first paragraph was awesome!

"it felt like the crack was being flossed with barbed wire soaked in lemon juice?"

fav line. awesome

Whoa man, just whoa


WOOHOOO!! DITZY!!!!:derpytongue2: MUFFIN!

Very commendable.

What in the bloody hell was that? Did I just experience bacon in story form?
Seriously, it was that awesome.:yay:

I couldn't help but cringe at the thought of her thrown shoe and cracked hoof. The poor thing had a hard day as it is, and then she went through that? Heart-wrenching.:raritycry:

Speaking of hearts.
"I'm not a sugarcube, I'm a muffin!" HHNNNGGGGG
Really everything that involved Dinky in this one was HHNNGGG worthy.

Damn Sticks and Stones, this was really their fault anyway. Oh if I ever met them...:twilightangry2:

Beautiful ending. I mean it. Bee-yay-yoo-tif-full.:eeyup:
All of my yays. ALL OF THEM. :yay::yay::yay::yay::yay::yay:

Awesome story. I really enjoyed it. Also did you happen put a Judas Priest reference in there or is it just me seeing things?

Damn this is seriously awesome. You took my whole head cannon of Ditzy, broke it down into its composite atoms and reconstituted it into this. It's freaking beautiful. Please tell me that that Complete is a lie and we're gonna get another chapter outta this. Please!:raritycry:

Also, I would cook and eat Sticks and Stones those foul pony bastards.:flutterrage:

Hmmm...not the pairing I would EVER expect, but it works. :derpyderp1:

I usually think :eeyup: / :yay:.

I wanna give Derpy a big hug right now! And I'll tell her that I think her nickname is cool! :pinkiesad2:

Faveing this story.

I love the pairing here. and you seem to have genuinely captured Big Mac. looking forward to more on DitzyXmac. and i dont get into shipping.

Nice story, but I have a few comments.

First, you said on ED that Ditzy is supposed to have Aspergers. I happen to have AS myself. First, I'm glad that you gave Ditzy a set of behaviors that are common with Aspergers instead of looking at the DSM and basing her off of the actual diagnosis criteria. While most of the those behaviors you based her on are technically not a part of the diagnosis criteria, it still gives the impression that she has AS. I think you didn't directly put out anything that fulfills criterion B, which is actually probably the most important one, but her intense focus on the air currents that led to her cutie mark can be interpreted as fitting that. Anyway, the main problem that people fall into when try to create autistic characters is they focus too much on the diagnosis criteria and forget that aspies are people and everyone is unique.

As many others said, Fluttershy does seem to be a bit off. I guess with your explanation she could work like that, but other explanations also work. As it happens Fluttershy seems to be one of the ponies most often thought of as possibly being autistic. This is probably mainly due to her hyper-introverted personality, but she does have several other autistic traits in the series, enough to warrant a diagnosis if you wanted her to be diagnosed. From your description of Fluttershy her being autistic is highly unlikely for your interpretation of her, and here she is most likely just an introvert as you described her. Anyway, if Fluttershy was in fact autistic I'd disagree that her being good with animals and being introverted would imply that she needs to be good at reading body language. Many autistic people have a heightened connection with animals, the most famous of which would be Temple Grandin. Also, most of my social interaction also consists of listening to and observing other people, and I'm still not very good at reading people. Then again I've seen some autistic people claim they've gotten very good at reading body language if they focused on learning long and hard enough. Anyway, this is your story and your interpretation of Fluttershy, and your explanation makes sense, so what ever you say goes.

Anyway, it's a great story. I admit I was a bit slow to catch on the shipping like Ditzy. Keep up the good work!

I forgot to mention two other things. First, I'm not sure if it would really be easier for the other ponies to read Derpy. People with Aspergers often tend to give out the wrong signals. However, this can be explained by everyone simply having gotten used to her signals.

Also, questions: Is Derpy supposed to have been diagnosed in this story? If so, do any of the other ponies know about the diagnosis?

Favorite pony is now neuro-atypical buddy. Yay. :yay:
