Derpy Night by Blackm3sh Derpy Night by Blackm3sh
This is how Derpy got her cutie mark, she originally had a cutie mark of a letter, but that changed after this dreaded night.

Derpy was just going out as always, looking at the stars at the edge of the Everfree Forest. Suddenly she saw a beam of light coming down from the moon wrapping around her. She felt a burning sensation on her flank, where her cutie mark was. It was lighting up and changing form right before here eyes. She was very scared, she didn't know what to do. They strange light that emanated from her cutie mark seem to calm down, but it was hard to tell what it was. The light fled as Derpy slowly tried to get a grasp of what happened. The cuitie mark... it was, bubbles? Or so she thought! But it was really stars, given to her by Nightmare Moon herself. She had split her power for both the moon and the stars and gave Derpy control over the stars without Derpy knowing. Because she wasn't as trapped as Celestia first thought. She was slowly planning her escape, laying down the pieces for her upcoming empire. Derpy was simply a piece in her diabolical chess game. She has anticipated that Celestia would train up someone in the hope that she would have the magic inside of her to defeat Nightmare Moon, but little did Celestia know that she had already planted a seed among her people, to someday when her plan comes into life, she will use it against her to regain Equestria and banish Celestia for what she did to her.
------------------------------------------

That was a lot longer than I thought, but you get the general idea behind the image.

As for the image itself, I tried a lot of different backgrounds. First some simple graphics, but that didn't quite work out. So I resulted to back in some of my old style Photoshop-ing. It was an attempt to be a bit more artistic as I'm not to good at drawing, more manipulation. But it was interesting, and I like the backstory I came up with ^^

And fanfics writes, here is your story. Personally I wouldn't consider myself much of an Author. So I'll leave it for you if someone wants :)

Her filename says "Derpy" on the HUB website. That disqualifies Ditzy Doo. >>> [link] Derpy IS best pony.

And, the auctioned off sketch of Derpy, on EBAY is Titled "Derpy Hooves: Lauren Faust MLP:FIM Original Art" DERPY HOOVES. Yes. Derpy IS best pony. >>> [link]

I thought this was a parody of this, [link] and in that context, it was hilarious. Now knowing it is not a parody of that image makes me feel bad, because that false impression was replaced by the sad story in your artist's description. That isn't your fault though. Still, a great drawing.

Yeah! Hidden secrets and demonic evil beings! These are a few of my favorite things! I like it and the story sorta makes sence, though if I'm remebering right the mail job was a fan speculation but, whatever. (Though to be fair almost all the show has things that are unknown.)

The problem is that the escape and banishing happened and we know the final result. So when Luna will go recuperate this part of her? There is something wrong about that. Is Nightmare Moon has still some use for Derpy Hooves? Did this detail slip out of Luna mind? Did Luna wait because she fear that Celestia will punish her if she learn about it or caught her?

After Luna lost her battle with Twilight she realized, as she feared, that she could not win with her power alone. So when Twilight beat her, she lost all of her powers and returned to her normal state. But before this battle happened she had stored some of her magical power, "the power of the starts", in Derpy. So she is secretly visiting her to gain her trust as she can't forcibly take her powers. She later plans to use her against the regime of Celestia. But for the moment she is acting all nice like to gain everyones trust. Derpy is mostly unaware of her powers, but she is seeing small signs of her powers and starts to get suspicious.

Personally I don't think Derpy will ever join Luna. But you never know right?

But I guess a story with Derpy/Bright-Eye and powers over the stars... might also make a good story :) (especially if it involve Dinky)
