You know how the Internet as a meme going about "If you didn't cry, then you have no soul?"
Well, I'm not sure I have a soul, given I rarely if ever cried from such a thing.
But this story...Oh boy, I bawled like a baby. Thinking about it makes me happy, and even now I have trouble keeping the floodgates close. This is certainly one of the most beautiful story I have ever read, in not even 2000 words.
If you like Derpy - even if you don't - just go on and read it. If it doesn't make you all fuzzy inside, I don't know what will.
