Dashie and Derpy in: Apology Cake
Rainbow Dash and Derpy are flying home after a sending off party for Applejack, who was heading to a rodeo competition. Applejack had promised to earn money to pay for repairs to the main hall, which Derpy had been the one to damage of course. In fact at the event, Derpy continued to make things worse and worse, giving Rainbow Dash an extremely hard time. She was still upset about it, and it showed on her face as she flew. Derpy looked over at her, realizing that Rainbow Dash was mad, but she wasn't quite sure why yet. She thought about it as they flew, ignoring the clouds that she passed through, until she had a thought about why. She had hurt Rainbow Dash a few times at the event, and she must be upset over it. She wasn't sure, so she decided to ask. "Rainbow Dash?"
Rainbow Dash doesn't even look over, as she says in a deep and annoyed tone, "What?"
Derpy cringes under her tone and bites her lower lip, not even wanting to ask anymore. But she builds

MY LITTLE PONY: EYES AND HOURGLASSES
Chapter I: "Mail Call"
Written by Diane N. Tran
Derpy Hooves was Ponyville's neighbourhood mail-mare. When she was first hired for this job, there was a great deal sniggering all over Cloudsdale for hiring the ridiculous, little cross-eyed pegasus. Luckily for her, looks can be deceiving and, in time, she became the best mail-mare that Ponyville ever had.
Letter by letter, parcel by parcel, she would work her way from one end of town to the other, zipping from house to house, building by building, slipping envelopes into each mail-box and each mail-slot, and waving to each pony she passed by. Through rain, wind, or shine, she was there every morning without fail and one thing she always prided herself on was never being late and, today, she was ahead of schedule. If she kept this up, she might treat herself with muffins at Sugarcube Corner a dozen<

"It's only been three days since we left Cloudsdale, Gilda - it feels like weeks at this point, though."
"How've you been keeping track? I can't even see the sun through all the smoke."
"It's a pegasus thing G.; griffins just don't have our talent for weather."
"Right, I completely forgot about that...So what's your special weather talent telling you about those clouds up ahead? They're blacker than normal...do you think Civil Protection torched another town?"
"...I don't want to think about that Gilda It was bad enough when they came to Cloudsdale looking for Rebels, but then they started butchering civilians... They took pleasure in the deaths of all those innocent pegasi..."

The Cake Theory
"Baby Cakes," the latest episode for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, evolved our understanding of the Equestrian world in more ways than one. Now, thanks to pony genes, we're able to see how two Earth ponies can give birth to a Pegasus and Unicorn without any immediate relations to ether race. Answer: Recessive traits. Thank you 8th grade biology! However, there are some questions that still need answering. I personally have a theory that pertains to each Cake baby, so let's slice right in!
Now, we're all familiar with Twilight Sparkle's struggle to learn and advance in magic as a young filly. In the episode 23 of season 1 - "The Cutie Mark Chronicles" - where we see her struggle to even turn a page with magic. And that's with the enormous amount of studying she puts in. So why then is it so hard for Twilight Sparkle - Celestia's prime student and the Element of Magic - to learn what she needed to and got to where she

The delicious aroma of a pot of fresh soup floated through the quaint Ponyville home, a grey pegasus stirring it as it sat upon the stove. Her wings occasionally flapped, sending the warmth and smell through the area to the point where she was positive that her neighbors were going to beg for some at any moment.
A smile spread across her face as she heard the click of her front door and the sigh of her young filly.
"Hello, muffin," she happily chirped, hearing Dinky's saddlebags hit the floor. "How was your day at school?"
Waiting for her response, Derpy listened as her daughter's hooves clinked across the kitchen floor, making their way to the living room, which was soon followed by the sound of the young pony plopping herself down on the couch.
Sensing the distress in her daughter's actions, she abandoned her stirring and trotted into the living room, looking at her grey filly with concern. She watched as the pony intentionally avoided her gaze.

MY LITTLE PONY: EYES AND HOURGLASSES
Chapter II: "The Welcome Wagon Comes to Town"
Written by Diane N. Tran
For the first time in her mail-mare career, the pegasus named Derpy Hooves was late in a delivery. That delivery consisted of one single, solitary letter to be dropped off at the very last residence of her rounds, Ponyville's Old Clock Tower. When she arrived at the building, she was, of course, as punctual as ever, but the mail-box was still missing from the lawn and she didn't have the courage to knock on the door again.
Dressed in her saddlebags, pacing back and forth, she was at a loss of what to do at the moment, so she paced some more. If she left it on the doorstep, the wind could blow it away. If she slipped it underneath the doormat, it might not be seen. Then a thought came to her, perhaps she could squeeze the letter between the cracks of the door.

To my lost love
Let me write you the tale
Of my life, before you arrived
When I knew you not
And the world was so dark
Long before happiness thrived
So I write you this poem
Of my poor life in past
Because now, we have gone apart
It started so simply
In a funny old town
All mayhem, even before the start
But twas not for me
So blind, I was then
Simple, I delivered the mail
Such a poor fragile thing
That dim helpless mare
My balance, so weak and so frail
Others said to their friends
That I was dumb and not bright
My expression did not help this thought
My eyes were so strange
It was not by my choice
And how to fix it; it couldn't be taught
So we meet in this story
Whilst average at life
Content, but not happiness blessed
That would all change
When our adventure began
A night, unlike all the rest
You know it too well
Twas the darkest of hours
On a street, I was walking so late
Lost and confused
Frightened and scared
I knew not, what was planned for my fate
Out of black

"Oh come on you nilly fillies! This is a great idea! We'll get our cutie marks in no time."
With timid eyes, Applebloom looked down to the hap-hazard bed of pillows and hay resting a good twenty feet from where they were. Attached to a couple of trees sat a taut, thin line of wire. Currently, the three of them stood on a thick tree branch, a few balancing sticks resting in the crook above their heads. It was a sunny day in Ponyville, and the three Crusaders had left class, eager to try out Scootaloo's newest scheme on how to get their cutie marks. The only problem was, as young Sweetie Belle and Applebloom were starting to figure out, most of Scootaloo's ideas usually ended badly. And sore. However, she swore that this would be different. After all, what was more important than staying balanced?
"Listen, Scootaloo," Sweetie Belle began carefully. "Why don't we at least try this

It was a glorious day in Ponyville, where all the ponies were at play and work. The work ponies were finishing lunch in a lovely afternoon, and the small school ponies were at recess, enjoying the sunny day. It was a daily routine in Ponyville, and nothing seemed out of place. The local Ponyville Library, however, looked like a darker place than before. The colors weren't as bright as they used to be, but instead with a darker hue. Ponies say it's because the library tree is growing old, but some school ponies started a rumor saying it got that way ever since a particular day.

They liked her, enjoyed her games and plays

Aching heart caters the fest

It was cold winters day at sweet apple acers, and the day looked to maybe develop some snow. A breeze came over the farm and nearly blew Apple Jacks hat off. She quickly grabbed it and put it back on her head. Apple Jack was sitting near the barn, and having just finished her work for the day and was contemplating what to do. She glanced up at the clouds in the sky and let out a long breath seeing it stream out in front of her because of the winter chill. Apple Jack thought to her self, ' I recon I aught to head on down to Ponyville and see what my friends are all up to.' So after carefully putting up all the apples she had gathered she began to trot on down to Ponyville.
Meanwhile in Ponyville Pinkie Pie was jumping up and down even more excitedly than usual. "Hey hey Dashie look! It's starting to snow! See see see see seeseesee!!!!!!" said Pinkie Pie as she leapt up trying to catch a snowflake in her mouth. Rainbow Dash quickly leaped up and pulled Pinkie back into the bus

...and then we went to the Grand Galloping Gala. Yes, that Gala. The one nopony is likely to ever forget about. Dressed in our finest - compliments of myself, of course - we had all come with the highest of expectations. Applejack was there for purely mercenary reasons: she was hoping to sell her family goods to passers-by.
Personally, I felt it was a tad distasteful; this was the Gala, the high point of the year for all of Equestria even for those ponies who don't get in, not some sort of... county fair for hawking goods. She even had a stall for Celestia's sake. Admittedly, her family did need the money to keep Sweet Apple Acres running, so I kept my thoughts to myself.
Fluttershy - the demure little thing - came simply to see the creatures in Celestia's royal garden. She gets along so well with animals as a whole, and many in the garden are said to be completely unique to all of Equestria. Myself, I have trouble enough with Opalescence, an

I shall now begin
A story of sin
Of a princess named Luna
Who had darkness within
She brought up the stars
From both near and far
But her head filled with envy
In her mind, it did scar
Ponies slept during twilight
They cared not for her night
So the dark made her jealous
So much that she'd fight
This evil had wit
In the deaths, it did sit
Made her jealous and angry
It would never just quit
Only true evil knows
How her anger had rose
Keeping darkest thoughts near
And pure hatred close
Until one day she broke
In anger she spoke
Held the sun low
As the darkness had woke
The true queen of Night
So dark was the sight
She bathed in the evil
And struck us with blight
We lost sense in the fear
When she did come near
Now there's none left to hear
And as we had yearned
For the princess to return
Under cold Luna's rule
Our hope then, did burn
She had left her mark
So this world now was dark
But when all was but lost
We heard Celesta's hark

Spitfire stood waiting with Ditzy in the cloudesium's mostly vacant backstage, staring pointedly at competitor number twelve as the event coordinator called for him for a third time. She leaned over to whisper in Ditzy's ear. "By Celestia, what is taking him so long?"
Ditzy whispered back, the colt in question only a few short steps away, trembling his way toward the curtain. "He's got the jitters, and bad. I heard he almost threw up in the bathroom a couple minutes ago."
The yellow colt took a deep breath, put on a shaky smile, and rushed out into the cloudiseum. Number thirteen sighed and shook his head as he walked over to the curtain to wait.
Spitfire stared at the curtain incredulously. "I never get ponies like that. If you're that nervous before you go out there, it'll only get worse when you actually are out there."
"I think it's his first time. At least, I don't remember seeing him last year."

Spitfire slowed as Ditzy’s house came into view ahead of her, marveling at how much more cheerful it looked during the day.

She twisted to look over her shoulder again, but there was still nopony following her. She kept her eyes peeled as she picked up speed again. She wasn’t going to draw any newsponies back to Ditzy if she could help it.
As she got a little closer, she spotted Dinky chatting with an orange pegasus filly on the lawn. Dinky’s back was to her as she faced her friend, her body twisted to show the other filly the new cutie mark which she was so avidly focused on, but her friend was busy staring at Spitfire. As Spitfire started her descent, she began to make out what Dinky was saying.

Ditzy sat on the sofa in front of her fireplace, staring quietly into the dancing flames, lost in thought over yesterday's long conversation with Spitfire. She'd barely slept; she'd kept running through the memories in her mind all night, striving to fill in the missing pieces and recall all the little details. Dinky lay on the floor in front of her, drawing a picture of what looked to be her with her new Crusader friends. Every once in a while she dropped her crayon and turned to stare wistfully out the window at the rainstorm which trapped her inside.
While her daughter may not have liked the rain, Ditzy saw it as a blessing, as it also served to keep most of the reporters away. Those few that had risked braving the storm quickly gave up and left once they realized Ditzy was adamant about refusing them entry and wholly unsympathetic to the conditions outside. As dusk fell and the temperature really started to drop, th

Ditzy finished the preliminary course and hurriedly made her way out of the performance area. Shortly after, Razorwind announced her scores and stated there would an intermission while they prepared for the free-flight section. Ditzy groaned, clutching her stomach and trying to hold onto her lunch. She'd been feeling ill all week. She knew she should have gone to the clinic, tried to take things easy, but there was no way she was going to miss her Wonderbolts tryout. Not again.
So she had to suck it up and stick it out. She winced, clutching at her stomach. If she could. She was so preoccupied with her upset stomach she didn't notice Spitfire until she was right in front of her.
She didn't look pleased. "What the heck was that, Ditz?"
Ditzy stifled a groan and her forelegs shot back down. "What? I'm leading, aren't I? I'm still top ranked!"

It was hours later when the storm subsided they ventured out and discovered the damage to the greenhouse.The Life of Derpy Hooves 2 - On the Cloud Farm1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
The ponies entered and saw the gruesome mess inside, and reacted with fear and revulsion. First they saw the soil and plants stained with partially frozen blood. There was no corpse to be seen. The surrounding plants had been either frozen or destroyed- cut down by the jagged hailstones that littered the ground.
The farmers looked to their unicorn supervisor, the only slave permitted to contact the pegasi. The unicorn, Beanstalk (named so for tending the beanstalks) quietly assessed the mess. Unlike his terrified co-workers, he knew a thing or two and had more to speculate with.

Impressed with Rainbow's performance, Arcenciel ordered them to take a break on a nearby cloud.

The town electing her as the manager of the entire building came as no surprise to anypony, except Fluttershy. As Fluttershy finished checking the medicine cabinet, she gave a small and delicate yawn. She would need to go home soon. She didn't want to be sleepy when she was dealing with patients tomorrow.
