Scootaloo's Diary is a leather-bound "Forever Pages" enchanted diary with her name hoofwritten in smudged permanent ink. It is hoofwritten by what looks to be a fairly young pony. The edges of the pages are all warped as if it has been dropped in a puddle or left out in the rain. Various pages appear to have things tucked within.

Entry 1:

Auntie Raincloud said I should start writing a diary with my memories of my parents. She bought me this special notebook that has lots and lots of paper, even though it's not very big.

Mama and Papa have become very sick, she says, and I may want to see these someday, she tells me. I don't know what she means. They just seem sick from some food, it's nothing too odd, is it?

Anyway, I feel like I might give this a try. I do like to write. Mama and Papa are in the hospital right now. Mama said she'd be fine, she's just a little sick. Just like I was thinking, nothing strange there.

Whatever, I'll give this a shot, but I don't see myself being one of those girly girls who writes in her diary all the time. I hate to waste such a nice gift, especially from Auntie Raincloud.

Last week we were out at the park and Mama and Papa seemed fine. Papa and I were playing and he was holding me up like I was flying, telling me one day I would be a talented flyer like the Wonderbolts.

Mama was watching from under a tree. She was just resting. We had been walking around the town for a long time. She bought me strawberries. They're my favorite. There wasn't really anything that happened since then, except Mama and Papa going out to dinner last weekend. We think that's where they got sick, other ponies in the hospital went there, too. Some restaurant.

I can't really remember anything else right now. Maybe that's why Auntie Raincloud said I should do this. I know my parents have done a lot of fun things with me, but I can't remember them right now. Small drawing of a frowning pony

Oh, also, the strawberries were great! I hope that once Mama and Papa get better we'll be able to go get more!

I will probably submit these as independent entries, even if I make several the same day.

As of the entries on July 16th, this is 50k+ words!
November 16th marks 75k+ words!
December 2nd marks 250 entries and 80000+ words!
December 4th marks 100 favorites on deviantART!

*WARNING TO READERS* As long as it can stay in canon (that is, provided the show doesn't in some way debunk a key part of the story) this will be ongoing at the pace of the show. Elsewise it will go at whatever pace I come up with continuing ideas. If I ever feel like I will only be dragging it on for the sake of dragging it on, it will finish. I have no intention of killing any of the main characters of the show. I have no intention of making it end in any sort of global-scale tragedy. I intend it to be very slice-of-life in dealing with the hurdles thrown at Scootaloo in my interpretation. It won't be complete until I feel like writing more would be detrimental to quality.

THIS FIC WILL NOT BE: A slash fic, mutilation fic, murder fic, paranormal horror fic, or a clop fic. Ever.

Daily Deviation! O_O :heart: My first one! So happy!

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-07-14
Scootaloo's Personal Diary - Entry 1 by ~Tails-155 weaves a story in-and-out through its source material, getting deep into the head of an adolescent girl. ( Featured by JZLobo )
It is a piece that connects to anyone who has had someone get sick and to write down a memory of that person in a diary or Journal. I like how you describe what the journal looks like and how there are things in the book besides pages of the original journal. The emotion in the writing is strong and give a sense of what she is feeling as she writes in the journal. You might want to elaborate what her parents look like so the reader gets a sense of what her parents look like. It would make the story seem like she wants to remember how her parents looked that day. It would probably give the readers something more to relate to. The story is good and keep up the good work.

I don't know too much about Scootaloo (other than the fact some people has debated whether she is a chicken or not for some reason) as I haven't watched a single MLP episode. It really seems that she is close to her family and there seems to be a child-like innocence to her character that is kinda endearing. Very good so far.

The child-like ignorance of this makes it perfect and tragic....
