Rainbow Dash: ...OK! All teams ready?! Everyone knows where they need to go?
Pegasus Teams: Ready!
RD: Awesome! Just... one small extra precaution. Twilight said "any kind of problem, and I mean ANYTHING."
*All the Pegasus begin murmuring.*
RD: *goes deadpan* DERPY.
RD: *flies up to Derpy* Derpy! Here's your mission! Stay on top of that cloud and keep a look out for any kind of disaster! *shoves Derpy onto a nearby cloud* Until next TUESDAY!
Derpy: OK! ...Can I keep this flower I found while I'm here?
RD: *kicks the cloud high up into the sky* Yeah! Sure! Whatever! *turns back to the other Pegasi* OK EVERYPONY! We're gonna need at least TWO ponies watching her! Raindrops! Cloud Kicker! You take first shift!
Cloud Kicker: I wanted to see Baltimare...
RD: Next shift, I want Lightning Bolt and April Sh-
*off in the distance Derpy begins hopping on the cloud causing static*
RD: *facehoofs* Make that THREE ponies watching her at all times. I'll help with the first shift. Details later! EVERYPONY, MOVE OUT!
*the Pegasi scatter; and Rainbow Dash, Raindrops, and Cloud Kicker "escort" Derpy even higher over Ponyville.*
Derpy: ...Since I'm keeping watch for so long, could someone get me a pot for my flower?
This is actually a sketch I made a few days ago. I didn't know what to do with it until I saw the most recent episode "It's About Time". The lack of Derpy at Twilight's mention of "disaster" kinda made me feel a bit surprised, she nearly destroyed town hall a while back, remember?
Ah, well. This is my take on Derpy's absence during the episode.
The background has been DRIVING ME CRAZY. I've attempted to fix it, as well as make the characters less... lumpy. -_-;
Here is the original for comparison: [link]
