The Secret Ingredient is Love by Mystic-Forces The Secret Ingredient is Love by Mystic-Forces

When it comes to MLP Fandom, this is probably the most adorable thing that fans come up with, Derpy Hooves/Ditzy Doo as a mother to Dinky Doo!  I think what I like about this pair the most, is that (other than being adorably cute) it shows that despite Derpy being seen as clumsy, she can be a capable and loving mother to a cute, little filly like Dinky.  The other thing I enjoyed out of making this comic is that it's a silent comic.  Whether it be in comics, cartoons, or animated films, I just love how art that can be used to tell the story itself without any form of dialogue needed.  My favorite examples are the flash cartoon series, "Brackenwoods", featuring Bitey, and a French-Belgium animated film, "The Triplets of Bellville."

This was a very cute story! The art style is really nice, almost like the actual show. I don't see many people doing this type of comic style: Having no dialouge, yet still impact you with an "Awwww." And yet, it works perfectly here! It also is hilarious at the beginning, and when it shows Derpy hugging her beloved daughter, that hit me in the feels. (Located next to the heart. X3) Honestly, I can't find anything bad in this comic. I like it that much! Great work on this! Looks like you got yourself a new watch! I'm looking forward for morw of your comics! :)

A very sweet and cute fan story. I already have diabetes so I don't have to worry about that from reading this. Giggle 

I think Derpy and Dinky are wonderful as a single mom and daughter. The way I get around the issue of Derpy being such a young mother is that Dinky is adopted. Like Bamm-Bamm from "The Flintstones", Dinky probably was left on Dinky's doorstop as a baby and she was taken in. Problem solved. It shows that Dinky is loved, and that Derpy is worthy of being a mama mare. And I've always thought Derpy is actually a lot smarter than her clumsiness and wall eyes suggest.

I used to think it would be better for Derpy to be Dinky's sister, since it makes more sense age wise,
but then I quickly changed my mind and accepted the cuter headcanon :D
Your comic only reinforced my decision ;)
It's a cute idea well executed and looks very show like.
Especially Dinky's expressions in panel 4 and 14 are gorgeous :)
I guess the muffins look a bit flat, which might be helped by using fewer blueberries or
using some outlines, that end in the muffin like in this picture: ponilauta.fi/k/src/13871447107…
but otherwise you've done a great job.

we don't actually see a negative expression on Derpy's face, just tears start coming to her eyes.  Maybe they're actually incredibly good, but Dinky interprets her mom's stopping as a sign they aren't

The love is so strong I'll bet the show makers are kicking themselves for not doing this in the show first. And of course Hasbro doesn't allow fan things in the show. Their loss, fandom's gain...

I know what happened; Derpy was so touched by her Daughter's caring that she almost choked, and this caused Dinky to think Mom didn't like her gift (which was naturally pure feldercarb; she LOVED it!)
