@Fanon Pony Families!
Berry Punch and Cheerilee being sisters has actually been around for quite a while.
I first remember seeing it somewhere close to two years ago now on one of the first Berry Punch Tumblrs here: Linked Because Semi-NSFW
Now they have one big happy family!
Cute as hell, too!
(Berry and Cheerilee are sisters, Pinchy is Berry’s daughter, Colgate/Minuette is dating/engaged/married to Berry, and Cheerilee adopted Scootaloo.)
Here’s a big old dose of headcanon for Derpy’s family: Linked because BIG
Very cute little comic that ties a lot of different pieces together.
Like xTSGx, I too really like the Derpy/Dinky relationship due to the sheer number of adorable/feelsy pictures and stories that have cropped up around the pair.
Pretty sure that the second fic I ever read (and the first that I liked ) was about them and was a total sadgasm.
I can’t really say that I ‘hold it above canon,’ but I am certainly far more receptive to the fandom’s farfetched explanations and work-arounds when canon seems to contradict it.
Anyone remember The Last Roundup?
(I know Derpy stole the show, but other stuff was going on, too.)
And that last shot is from Just for Sidekicks/Games Ponies Play.
Canon seems to be pretty heavily implying that Dinky is in fact the daughter of Carrot Top and that stallion, who seems to be known as ‘Written Script.’
Luckily, the fans swooped in to save their favorite family and explained this apparent contradiction away by combining two pre-established bits of fanon.
Since Derpy and Carrot Top have long been considered friends/roommates, it was just assumed that this was Carrot taking Dinky on a trip while Derpy stayed in Ponyville, perhaps because she was helping to repair town hall… since she destroyed it.
It’s a flimsy reorganization of facts presented, but I’ll take it for Derpy and Dinky!
@Lunar & Temporal Shenanigans
Yeah, Derpy’s already a pro.
Wonton time travel can lead to some odd situations sometimes.
