This is the story of a very ordinary pony's extraordinary day. Carrot Top and Derpy are good friends indeed, and sometimes friendship can lead to wonderful surprises. It can also lead to arguments, frustration, and general grumpiness, of course, and this story has all of those things as well. But mostly, this is a story about the day Carrot Top learned how to fly.
You may recall me mentioning the Hearth's Warming Care Package a while back; if not, it was a fanfic-writing event for which the goal was to write a story for Kiki, a seven year old girl who's fighting cancer and who likes MLP. This was my entry.
I'll spare you the suspense: I came in sixth place, out of 25 stories submitted. Not what I'd call a terrible result, considering the quality of the other top entrants. You can check those out here, by the way. And now that the contest is over, I've posted it for all the world to see.
So here it is: my go at writing an irreverently whimsical yet sincere bit of friendshipping suitable for all ages. If that sounds like something up your alley, why not check it out? And if you do decide to read, I'd love to hear your comments, either here or on FIMFic. Feedback, whether positive, negative, or otherwise, is always appreciated.
