This event repeats every year until 01/21/99

Event details

WARNING: Season 2, Episode 14 SPOILERS!

In today's episode, Rainbow Dash called Derpy by name, rendering her previously fanon name official. Derpy then went on to have a full speaking role for a good minute or so in which she destroyed part of Ponyville's town hall, much to Rainbow Dash's frustration.

This event is significant because it proves, once and for all, that the show's creators are well aware of their fandom and listen to their viewers. Derpy originally began as a simple animation error in the show's pilot episode, but became a hit character among the fans.

All because a fan character got lines in the show...?

 

Because if it wasn't for the imagination, creativity, and persistence of the fandom, today would never had happened. The fans created Derpy and the animators were generous and kind enough to make her a legitimate character. Derpy is truly a fan-created character. One tiny animation derp (pun intended) evolved and exploded into a full-fledged character.

 

Also I hope I don't live to the year 6099 >_> Oh wait, I'm The Doctor. Of course I can live that long.

I am seriously not giving the MLP community enough credit.

I shall now make a complex and elaborate speech, specially adapted to fit the importance and meaning of this day. Please highlight the paragraph to avoid spoilers.

Sad days these days for Derpy, but it's not like soccer moms can ever get rid of her within the fandom. I don't particularly care for her a lot, but I know she means a lot to the community, and I hope people can find comfort in that she'll stay alive as long as they want her to.

^ I've heard that that isn't true, along with the Twilight-alicorn rumor and season 4 being the last season.

I would sit here and go off on a rant about how stupid it is that a fan character gets her own event just because said character got a couple of lines for one episode, but I suppose that would be improper of me to do so. But hey, like you said, it shows that they know that we Bronies exist! But does it really deserve it's own event?

Actually it wasnt an animation error the illustrator decided to throw it in just because and was noticed by the community and was eventually named " Derpy Hooves "
