So. After being bombarded with suggestions from who-cares-where, I caved in. I caved in and read "My Little Dashie." *Dodges brick* Now, I don't watch, and never have watched MLP, but I'm familiar with the basics of it. *Dodges more bricks* But, even with my minimal knowledge and impartiality towards the pony fanbase, I still felt the story beat at my stony heart with a diamond pickaxe. (Woo, Minecraft.) Now, usually, my hare-brained ideas for stories peter out after about a few hours, and my interest follows soon after. However, MLD has been an inspirational tale for me, and I just had to rip it off write a version that would not cause a complete and utter dungstorm that could express things from a different viewpoint, had a similar thing happened to someone else. Look, it's a derivative of a derivative, I know. But I needed to write something with my heart, and that's hard for me. This was all I had.
