DAAAAAW! That was such a lovely little story. I loved the ending.

Wondeful read, just as good as the first one. Bit sad its shorter, but that's all I can complain about. And only because there is less to read.

i have to agree with baree, i wish this was longer, its just so funny and the last sentence made me burst out laughing:rainbowlaugh:

this story gets 5 stars:yay:

I like the way you write. just... something about this, and the previous story... i dunno. i just LOVE it.

i may be repeating... but i just wish they were both longer. not that it seemed short, but i just wish i had more to read, so i wouldn't be done already.

Loved it. Also just read the prequel, loved that too. Five stars. You've got yourself follower. I look foreward to reading more of your work.

Saccharine overdose warning, extreme levels of D'awwwwwwwwwww present in this history, entering I LOVE YOU mode: :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

I've got diabetes now, in a good way:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:
It was just so adorable X3

As with the others i'd love to see a continuation of this story arc, you've made some very believable characters here. Dinky was precious, Sparkler's a great sister, I love the Big Mac and Ditzy relationship, it's just a well written fic. Hope you continue it in the future. 5/5 stars.

What a b(&@% good story!!

I loved Ditzy Doo's Dismally Derpy Day. I thought it was one of the best MLP fics of all time and certainly one of the best Ditzy/Derpy stories. This story certainly lives up to the adorableness, cleverness and all-around superbness of that story.

Dinky and Sparkler playing Go? That's just so mind-boggingly cool and cute that my head exploded! And Dinky telling off Diamond Tiara like that? PRICELESS!

Sparkler is really fleshed out an made an interesting character...with a nice caboose. XD I love her interactions with Ditzy and Dinky and the running gag with the b-word is handled amazingly. Words cannot contain my love for this story and its predecessor. :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

That was the best ending ever!!!! :derpytongue2:

*laughing* Oh my ribs, it hurts to laugh. :rainbowlaugh:

Oh Dinky is just so cute, and knows what to say to make a moment hilarious.

I got a question, im writing a fic or two and I got to know is this what most fans use for their fics, Derpy being a single mom in one sense or another?

:heart: Again, I love this story. I can't wait until your next one comes down the pipe.

Yes, Diamond Tiara is a bitch. *Nods sagely* :derpytongue2: Okay, great there. :ajsmug: I love Sparkler. Like with Ditzy and Dinky, you've made her into my image of fanon... or something like that. :pinkiecrazy:

Oh gosh this is to funny I can barely control my laughter :rainbowlaugh:

I don't know if ant of you guys or gals know this but... Diamond Tiara... is a bitch! :trollestia:

I couldn't stop laughing at that. I really though it was funny how Ditzy was trying to set fire to her with... HER MIND! :flutterrage:

Take all my stars! TAKE THEM NOW! :heart:

gosh, iI've seen some funny fics on here, but never one that made me laugh so much! :rainbowlaugh:

Beautiful in its own way.

Oh man, this is the best :rainbowwild:

My oh my I don't think I've read anything that made me smile this much. Dinky was written perfectly! Just the right amount of innocence and genius all wrapped up into one small package.

I. MUST. HAVE. MORE! this is really enjoyable :)

Oh my god I need to stop reading these kids of fics during school! I nearly OPENLY LAUGHED at Big Macintosh calling Diamond Tiara a bitch!

... Wow. Nice story you got here. I enjoyed the read, always a good way to help me procrastinate. I applaud you sir. :moustache:

I have nothing constructive to say... This is just too adorable for any critique.

I'm in love with the way you fleshed-out the characters!

wow that was amazing

Absolutely charming! It's hard to write an intelligent child character without having them sound like a mini-adult or just come across as annoying, but you have certainly succeeded!

What a b-word!... Nope, it just doesn't work! :derpytongue2:
Damn, it's been ages since I've played Go... I remember being pretty good at it though...

181812 The answer: Whatever you want. Fanon comes second to Everything else. If parts of the Fanon don't mesh with your story, ignore 'em. Your story will come out much better that way.
186378 Seconded. Everything I wanted to say, said through a reply button. Serendipity!

Oh man, I enjoyed this and the previous one lots and lots. I really hope there'll be more in the future.

"Hey, I'm not your mother!"

This line irks me. It really doesn't seem like the kind of thing a step-mom would say to her step-daughter.

Ok, if I wasn't hooked from the first part, I'm hooked now. A third one, Please make it :rainbowkiss:

Instant Faved
5/5 stars :pinkiehappy:

I can understand your point, although it did catch me by surprise; no one's ever raised that objection to me before.

I haven't explored Sparkler and Ditzy's relationship in any depth yet; I hope to touch on it the next story I write about them. But in brief, I don't see them as having a mother-daughter relationship, but rather more of an aunt-niece (the cool aunt you talk to about stuff you can't tell mom) or maybe even like sisters. The line in question was meant to mean that she needn't censor herself due to parental proximity, although she quickly remembered the presence of somepony who maybe shouldn't hear all the details. :twilightsheepish:

That story made me go "EEEEEEEEEEE!"

Shut up and take my yays!:yay:

You must keep writing stories. Don't you ever stop because you are awesome! :heart:


There is a tag for Dinky now. Please add it. Thank you.

Fantastic fiction featuring my favorite filly. Full marks!:derpytongue2:


Still the best Derpy/Ditzy I've ever read, the one you write. And extending it across the family just makes it all the better.

...Diamond Tiara is kind of a bitch, though. :ajbemused:

Happy writings! :twilightsmile:

You want to know when stories are good? When someone registers just to comment on them!

I love how you handled Dinky out of everyone else. She was a good mixture of a bright kid that knows a little too much than she should but not mature enough to understand it all. Writing for a child character is one of the hardest things to do and you pulled it off without a hitch. I actually felt myself cringe a bit like when my son runs his mouth. Everyone else was represented well in both stories despite how much they were involved or not. I'm not a big fan of shippings, but teasing Derpy/Ditzy and Big Mac is comically refreshing as it is unlikely, which makes it even more interesting. Keep up the good work, and stay inspired.

Gotta say, this story was pretty... bitchin'.

Yeeaaaahhh! images.mylittlefacewhen.com/media/f/rsz/mlfw3168_large.png

I say this is the cutest use of the word bitch that I have ever seen.

I love your story's...and was kind of wondering...can anyone narrate them?..i want to share these with friends, some who are...reading challenged. and would love to read it to my youtube subscribes also. please and thank you either way :)

Sorry I took so long to reply... I don't mind people doing readings of my stuff as long as proper credit is given; I'd appreciate being told about it, but my google alert will likely pick it up anyway. There's already two versions of Derpy Day on Youtube.

It's hard to find someone that gets kids (or foals) right, but you have Dinky just right here. I'd love to hear more about the history with Sparkler and Ditzy and everyone else in their family--you've made all of them very compelling characters.

I guess I am correct in saying that Dinky and Sparkler have the same fathers. Very cute story!

:rainbowlaugh: That ending was too funny and Dinky is just to precious! This story was so cute, funny and adorable, and I would have to agree that Diamond Tiara is a bitch. Nice one :pinkiesmile:
