* FinaglesLaw: The spell Twilight finds to fix Derpy's exotropia has to be cast several times before it becomes permanent, and any mistake could cause serious damage. In addition, the scroll she finds it on is very old, badly damaged and almost illegible without a lot of effort. So when she tries it on Derpy in Chapter 10, it ends up blinding her entirely. However, her vision has returned by the following morning, and Rarity manages to pinpoint Twilight's mistake - [[spoiler:though the spell continues to be enough of a risk for Celestia to ban her from using it]].

The seventh changes in Chapter 23, to Derpy's own colouring. This is a phenomenon that neither Twilight nor Celestia have ever seen or heard of before]].

* EroticDream: Twilight, in chapter 5.9.

* EroticDream: Twilight, [[InAnotherMansShoes In Another Mare's Shoes]]: Twilight invokes this in chapter 5.Chapter 8, taking a potion made by Zecora to mimic Derpy's condition. Her inability to adjust to it fills her with respect for how far Derpy has come in spite of it.

-->'''Derpy''': You know, occasionally when Iím delivering mail I get a letter addressed to a place that doesnít exist; maybe somepony moved, or maybe somepony miswrote the address. When we get those letters, we just send them back to where they came from and move on to the next destination. There is nothing we can do in the Post Office to make that address appear. Maybe that same thing will happen with fixing my eyes. Maybe there is no answer; maybe there is no fix. It doesnít mean we canít look, but if itís not there, then itís just an 'address unknown'. We accept it, we move on. And then I can move on, too.

** In chapter 6, Derpy tries to preemptively apologise to Post for the accidents she's likely to cause sooner or later. Post assures her that accidents happen to everypony and that he doesn't want her to doubt herself.

** Twilight again, after invoking InAnotherMansShoes: -->'''Twilight''': For a pony with normal sight to suddenly see like you do, it's entirely debilitating. I could barely stand, let alone walk; I knocked over everything in my path, and I nearly gagged from the intense vertigo it caused. But ''you''... You may be slightly clumsy, and not fly entirely straight, but you've adapted to it enough to function as well as anypony else. Right now, I can truthfully grasp how amazing you really are. Not only have you adjusted to your condition, you've come close to nullifying its effects while enduring agonizing emotions all the while. ** In chapter 6, 5, Derpy tries to preemptively apologise to Post for the accidents she's likely to cause sooner or later.
