    I freaking hate you.I'm reading this and people around me are giving me weird looks because I'm sniffling and getting teary-eyed….Damn it.

    Manly tears, they have been truly shed.That is the happiest thing and the saddest thing I have ever read.

    Awww, shit. [Sad] tag, please.I'm in tears, so I suppose this story had its desired effect. Very well written and executed.

    Well geez guys, I didn't think it was THAT sad…Although I wouldn't call it normal either.It was hard to take it seriously with derpy talking in derp-mode but the overall plot and poem at the end was really nice.

    …Nnnnnno this needs a Sad tag real quick like.

  7. This made me sniffle, and I don't even LIKE the whole Derpy thing that much.

    Now that's a good mother, I don't understand why they don't think she can handle a foal. What was it she did to exactly have Dinky removed from her care other than being slightly weird? You have to do something horrible and recognizable to lose a child that way, plus someone would have to report you to the authorities as a bad parent.Plus there is no restraining order, just a removal from Derpy's home it didn't stop her from being a parent or close to the unicorn in question.Anyone that would report Derpy as a bad parent obviously doesn't know her love of Muffin, also unfit my ass if she holds a freaking job for crying out loud.

    http://tinyurl.com/khaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanWhy ? …damn why ?!…the Derpy/Dinky family was the most touching relation and the one I loved the most… and you go and break it ?Good, sad, yet… Should have NEVER been made.Make an alternative story or something, whatever anything…Alos, they lived together for YEARS, without troubles, Derpy has a good strong job and is WELL known for her professionalism… Dinky was fine, good health, no harm wahtsoever… What kind of dumb repport about their family, that they received to make this even SLIGHTLY believeable ?? The hell they go and take Dinky for NO valid reasons ?!

    Another Anonymous brought it up too Nova.There's no restraining order saying she can't spend time with her daughter… especially considering with her job she knows where Dinky lives and it's not really sad at all if you think about it. The story really didn't seperate Derpy from Dinky it just made her leave Ponyville.

  22. Brian says:

    Yeah, posting again, someone please make make this a sadfic! It has no business being called normal!Also, it's completely nonfanon to me. In my heart, Derpy and Dinky will always be together!

    I enjoyed the way this story was put together, the characterizations, etc. The descriptions really were quite well described.(However, I do have to agree that inability to talk is not a mental condition, especially for a published poet who holds down a steady job and is trusted by her peers.)

  27. I'll give it a 3/5 purely for the fact the the inappropriate line breaks get ridiculous after a while. Otherwise, great story.

    It's a conspiracy to get Derpy out of Ponyville!

  32. Anonymous says:

    One thing I find so fascinating is that Derpy began as just a background pony that someone with keen eyes spotted. And since then she's been given a full life; a name, job, personality to match the show's main six – by just the fans. Reading something this powerful is made all the more impacting by the fact that the story is about a character that we've all been involved with from the start – more involved with than any other character.

  36. CupcakesNom says:

    I think that's the first Sad fic I've read. It's really interesting how my instant gut reaction was "5 Stars!" without hesitation. It gets into your brain and stimulates some sort of sympathetic impulse that just takes control. This merits more research…SPIKE, bring me the newest copy of "Mind Control Through Fanfiction," stat!I did enjoy reading this, even if after a few moments of calm thought it makes me wonder some of the same "but, why?" thoughts other commenters have left. I should probably read more Sad fics to get a basis of judgment.

    @Anonymous>MFW I TYPED THAT ON GOOGLE DOCS CHATDamn anon, I dunno if I should be flattered or whatThat's pretty much what I was going to say here, the story is powerful enough on it's own, but the fact that it's about a character that the fans have sculpted and brought life to brings it to cause manly tears. Derpy is OUR character, so we all feel a greater attachment to her. The author who wrote this obviously saw this, and wove a tale that would get inside our hearts… that was clever, if slightly cruel…

  39. ruff1298 says:

    Well, your mislabeling skills are quite impressive, Sethisto…Anyways, lovely story. I adored how Derpy Hooves mantained contact with Dinky even though Social Services are being stupid and abusive again.Lovely use of title and powerful message, too; the inscription really speaks of how powerful her love for her daughter is.PS. I'm holding back tears right now. Awesome tears.

  40. You know I'm one of those people who never cry at films, TV shows or charity adverts where they show a whole bunch of dying kids. But this tugs at my heart strings for some strange reason, maybe it's because nothing should be this way in Equestria.

Like Pinkie Finding out what happened, Dash Zooming around Equestria to find Derpy, Rarity starting a PR campaign/fundraiser thing, Fluttershy shyly going around collecting signatures and statements that Derpy was a good parent, Twilight taking up position as Derpy's Attorney, and AJ giving OPPP some sorta Honesty talk and showing her the error of her ideals.FUND IT!

  98. Holy CRAP! I never expected this story would get such a huge response. Thank you all so much for your comments.To the people who were asking about the rationale for having Derpy declared an unfit parent: originally the letter from the agency was going to be much longer. It would basically imply that Derpy was getting screwed by a system that values a "normal" upbringing more than the happiness of the child. But I also wanted to balance that with the message that the agency weren't bad guys and they had the best of intentions.Unfortunately, getting that all out was slowing the story down considerably, and taking focus away from Derpy and Dinky, so I cut the letter down to essential information only. Hopefully the trade-off was worth it.Anyway, thanks, everyone!

    Alright, now that I've had a minute to think, here's try number 2 at a review. Overall, this is a very fine piece of writing. and one of my favorites. Not perfect, but then nothing is. I read a lot of sad stories for whatever reason, but this one hit me a lot harder than I expected. Looking back, I'm not sure why it was so much worse than all the others I've seen, but this is one of two, maybe three times in all my years that I cried at something I read. Not got a little teary, but actually wept. I didn't mind the way Derpy talking the way she did, but I though it was a little overdone, it made it hard to take the story seriously at first. I do think that you made the right decision about the letter, making any part of the story much longer would have lessened its impact, and the message is still relatively clear. The exact reasons for declaring Derpy an unfit parent are irrelevant. She knows what they are, and we, the readers, just need to know that the decision has already been made.

I started reading this on the bus and at the climax I was starting to get a bit watery-eyed. Bus ride ended, though, so I had to take a break right after the major… event… comes to pass (and we take the next-day break). The fact that I was able to pick up from there, read the rest of it, and have a face covered by tears says something. Amazing fic.

    Yeah I give this story a 5/5 just because of the amazing characterization of Derpy and Dinky. As for why the Agency might think Derpy unfit to be a mother. Possibly someone in Ponyvile sent in a complaint about Derpy as per her Logorrhea and wall eye; using this as a reason to get Dinky removed to a safe home.I havn't read the alternate ending but I have one of my own in my mind that I might put down and submit. :p

But, as for the Alt end, I can't read it yet. Sad tends to stick with you more than happy, I find, like a main character dying at the end.

    @nova_25A child could be taken away if CPA deems that the parent is not able to care for a child due to mental disabilities.In Derpy's case, they probably assumed that she wouldn't be able to care for her due to her inability to communicate properly…God this is a sad story… T.T

    Her speech impediment kinda slowed things down for a second, but when you got used to it and got to figure out what she was saying with those nonsensical words it sped up again. Also, her forcing the words there at the end was just… just… T.TI have Asperger's Syndrome, its a disability on the autistic spectrum, and its not as bad as what Derpy had, but I get how hard it is to vocalize something without sounding like a complete moron… Derpy turned out to be a great mother, despite what the agency claimed.

    Despite the quality of this fic let me just say that I hate you. You people are just cruel with Ditzy/Derpy's character. On one hand she functions just fine but you make he into as totally retarded as opposed to just being a bit off. It's just insulting. Not to mention no one apparently cares about her and she's alone. Oh and what about Dinky's father? Let me guess, Derpy was raped or something and Dinky is the result?Well written and emotional though.

    @GamerPonyFrom what you say, I can deduce with a 99.999% accuracy that you haven't read the Alternative Story Ending I made, and which is on this very page…And just take a couple of *SPLAPS* and a *Boot to the Head* for your moronic mention of 'rape'… Seriously, some people have issues.

    Reading it with the Alternate ending… it was… wow. I simply loved the story. After reading most of the Derpy fanfics. I've bacame a true Brony because of her. I Adore her and her determination. I truely hope she get Chance to shine in the spotlight in season two and becomes more than "just a side pony" or the "Spot the Derpy"… if you will. πŸ™‚ Five Stars all they way for the story and the Alt Ending!!!!

    @AnonymousYou have a strange sad ending, and an alternative happy one.Don't like happy stuff ? Don't read and don't comment for no good reason, ok ? I don't go around insulting you, so a bit of respect.

    And so people have no knowledge of Child Protection Services and assume that the sadness was forced. A child can actually be taken away from a parent with a mental disability.Also nova, just because they didn't like an alternate version doesn't mean they don't like happy stuff. I personally hate every "Alternate Happy Ending" fiction ever made because all it does is say that the person can't handle feeling emotion. None of it ever turns out well written either. Granted I haven't read yours, so I can't judge, but it's disrespectful to make a happy ending to someone's fanfiction. If you can't handle these kinds of stories, just look at the tags before viewing them.

    okay, seriously. wtf?Why oh why oh WHY does everyone assume Ditzy Doo (derpy Hooves, whatever) is ass retarded or something?! She is seen soooo many other times as a background pony with a perfectly straight face, no weird eye derp. Hell, cheerilee (think I spelled that wrong…) only had three legs for all of 10 seconds in WInter Wrap Up but you don't see everyone writing heart-wrenchingly sad, tear jerking (good job Choppers Top Hat) fics about her living life as a disabled pony fighting hard to overcome her lack of a leg… or something. Really, can't Derpy (I really, really prefer Ditzy. I hope they don't change it) just be a beloved, normal background pony, like DJ Pon3, or octavia? (go read the Vinyl Scratch tapes. NOW.) Its getting tiresome…
