The speaking of rhymes. Zecora has never spoken without rhyme, but... what happens when she can't rhyme?
A rhyme for an orange, we must arrange
But... what happens next? I HAVE TO KNOW!
Did you mean to mark this "Complete"?
Fedora rhymes with Zecora. It's a type of hat, did you not know that?
This was perfect.
Bravo to your rhyming, sir.
Hilarious fic. Who knew Zecora's one weakness was an inability to form a coherent rhyme?
Your own name doesn’t even rhyme with anything.
I need to find a really good dictionary ''where's Sweetie Belle?''
Somone! Give this filly a cutie mark!
She shoulda used 'door hinge'...
Goodness, that was brilliant. Well done on your rhymes.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT???? MOAR PLEASE!! loved it by the wat
Waht a twist
Anyway, this was great to read, and I'm still laughing in the end. A few grammar errors are presnt, but not enough to set a reader off. Good job.
Another great story.
Congrats again, Sorren.
Brilliant. This honestly deserves the feature box.
Not sure what to do with "orange" or "silver" though...
Still an absolutely hilarious read!
One has found a orange fruit full of orange
They may not have Fedoras in Equestria, or, if they do, they may not be called that.
That seems more like only a partial rhyme to me....not sure. Just doesn't sound right. Personal opinions, though, eh?
Brony master sent me
Does it honestly matter? Don't nit pick the small stuff
No, it doesn't matter. I'm glad we are in agreement.
Then why bring it up in the first place?
>>738842738842 To solve the issue. Fedora is a half-rhyme and as far as I have seen, fedora's don't exist in the canon mlp world yet.
>>736728736728 Flora is just a fairly unknown word that is not normally used at the end of a sentence. And really, who the hay says flora anymore?
>>738842738842 And I'm not an imbicile, I know what a fedora is. I kind of own and wear one.
And alas, all arguement is over.
It was part of the rhyme scheme, never said anything about you being an imbicile.
>>738894738894 It was the way you asked it. (Quote) "It's a type of hat, did you not know that?"
Quote suggests you are unearthing the idea of a fedora to me for the first time with a condescending tone.
>>736039736039 DOOR HENGE, DOOR HENGE RHYMES WITH ORANGE.
I loved this story
It was the only type of rhyme I could think of at the time. You're digging to deep to find something that isn't there, no insult was intended. Ever.
>>738918738918 Okay, none insult taken.
That was hilarious!
Fun fact: 'dreamt' is the only English word that enda in 'mt'. I think.
I say flora. Hope this doesn't count as me being a smartflank.
Orange may not be shared against all whorange
Gorange rhymes with orange. On QI they mentioned it, it means to binge on something. Blorange is apparently a place in Wales.
Or you could just use the word Door Hinge.
There you go Apple Bloom, there's a few.
Great Story Sorren. Thanks to Bronymaster for recommending it
Thanks for the fun read Sorren, consider this favorited!
>>739078739078 Yes, but all of that would be cheating, and ponies don't have a Wales
>>739090739090 Thank you for favoriting. Every favorite puts me a twitch closer to featured!
>>739094739094 Gorange is cheating? It's the only one word in the English language that rhymes with orange. But if that was added it probably wouldn't be as good a story as it is.
Twitchy twitch? Twitchy twitch!?!
I wish you the best of luck, I assume this will get on the front page no problem
>>739208739208 Not if updates for stories that were popular months ago keep coming out. I'm getting pushed down the list by Anthropology and Discordant.
I've heard of Anthropology, but not Discordant... Luckily Bronymaster is shamelessly plugging this one-shot, and since I checked this out earlier today, the views, thumbs up, and favorites have jumped up quite a bit
>>739235739235 I have my hooves crossed. If I don't get these butterflies out of my stomach I'm going float away with nearvous jitters.
One of the applebloom's is still uncapitalized.
>>739505739505 shoot, where!?
and an everfree forest, somewhere that I don't remember
sorry, I just got back from a college thing, and I'm really tired.
>>738882738882 Fluttershy says "flora" in "The ticket master"
You could assume that she didn't think of it at the moment Applebloom told her her name didn't rhyme. She was freaking out and not thinking straight, after all.
Outstanding story! Conjures up terrible memories of when I was first learning to program though.....
o shit i love this
That would be hinge, mate.
That was funny as heck. Poor Zecora
Zecora outta charachter?
http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&global=1&q=shocked+face#/d4c2qzp explains my reaction well
This makes so much sense that it could be used as an actual episode. A very great read.
Would Door Hinge work?
Good job getting featured man! Proud of youuu
Door... heenge?.... Does not computer.
Actually, there's a village in wales named "Bloringthe", which is pronounced "Bl-orange". And yes, it used to be named something else, but they decided to be clever.
Pretty sure that she's comfortable with near-rhymes as well, particularly ones as near as "Pilfer" (only reason its not a full rhyme for Silver is that you don't voice the labiodental fricative in the former), or Carpal (Vowular shift in first syllable, but they are related vowels, and both have the r shift)
However, one should never let the truth get in the way of a good story. Good work! :zecoracrazy:
Sticks and stones may hurt my bones, but words will never hurt me!
But they don't have wales in equestria, and I would argue that using names is a way of cheating in the rhyming game unless the object or person bearing the name is the subject of a poem or otherwise. That's just my personal opinion, though.
>>738882738882 It's... Actually more rare NOT to know the word Flora, as Far as I know. It's even a Name in Real life, and It would suprise me if it weren;t one in equestria. In all, Not an uncommon word, Though it may just depend on where you live, I suppose. Now, For a VERY uncommon word that could help a Zebra out, Try Chilver. It's definition is a Ewe-lamb. Buggered If I can find one for Orange though. Purple has a good one though, Vis Curple. It's the strap underneath the girth of a saddle to stop the Saddle Kicking foward. A word more likely to be in common(ish) use in Equestria than here IRL. If no-one else in Ponyville knew it, Rarity probably would.
>>740182740182 Ouch, stop tearing holes in my story! it makes me look bad.
Spike was wearing a Fedora in 'Mysterious Mare-Do-Well'
I know everyone would rather forget that episode, but yeah. Fedoras. Canon for Equestria.
*Looks at cover image* And that's how Equestria was introduced to Sweet Stripes gum. Only, the flavor lasted in this type.
But did they CALL it a fedora?
Bravo. Bravo, sir
...I can't remember. I'm trying to Forget Mysterious Mare-Do-Well...
Are you going to continue this Fic?
>>740189740189 Well, Chilver is Obscure and Curple would most likely not be a word that Applebloom or Zecora would Know, Applebloom not being all that into fashion, From what I can tell and Zecora being a Foreign Hermit pretty much Gaurantees She Wouldn't Know any Fashion Terms. You're still boned on the Flora Front though :P
Can we please just enjoy a good story? First of all, Zecora may not even know those words. Second of all, if she DID know them, she may have forgotten in her panic over not rhyming. That's getting really technical in my opinion, anyway. How would you even introduce those words and it make sense? No, let's just let the issue drop. Please. For the sake of enjoying a story.
would silver not ryhme with quiver
OBJECTION Zecora rhymes with Pandora
>>736728736728 did you just make an image macro for the sole perpose of responding to this fic?
Pandora may not be a word they have, as that came from a Greek myth.
@everyone: Seriously, can we stop arguing about rhymes and enjoy the story as it is?
Ahh, we're just poking fun. Don't take it too seriously. It's a fun story.
Maybe, but it gets less 'fun' when every other comment is a quip about rhyming. It was hard enough for Sorren to come up with rhymes as it was. Much less trying to search all of the English language for words that don't rhyme besides orange. Everybody knows orange.
Short answer: it's annoying that everybody comments just to point it out. Fun for a few comments, annoying for all the rest.
Maybe I'm just too easily annoyed. Idk. I'm a crazy person, what do I know?
Then stop letting it bug you. Stop replying and read another story.
Purple - Burble or Curple;
Orange - Door Hinge;
Zecora - Fedora;
Silver - Yeah she's still screwed here.

fluttershy says flora in the episode "the ticket master"
Bewilder is, granted, close, but I don't think she would stoop that low, even if she was going to die.
And dilver? Huh, never heard of that one.
You have pleased Annoying Orange. A fuckload of oranges for him to lead into battle against our sanity.
Swerver? Ver, silVER, swerVER. Yes I made that word up. It means someone who swerves a lot.
Orange. Depends on how you say it. If you say or-An-j. No can help. If you say Or-in-j, than rhyme with hinge.
Purple. I think it rhymes with people. Pur-pull, pea-pull.
Yea I'm trying to break English.
Oh yah, awesome story! Now save Zecora Appleboom!
>>740549740549 Oh for the love of Celestia! gimme a break!
I have not read it, but I'm calling that she needs to either rhyme with orange or silver. Yeah, you heard me.
Silver also has no english word that rhymes with it. You just learned something new.
in the sea a boat i must see
Door Hinge does not rhyme.
Anyway funny story.
Blorenge is a hill in Whales, which rhymes with orange
Chilver is a female lamb, which rhymes with silver
Curple is the hindquarters of a horse, which rhymes with purple
silver rhymes with quilver, purple rhymes with burple and curble
Binge? Delver? Deliver? Flora? Fedora? Cringe? Badge (close as I've found for or-AN-j)?
Hora? Tinge? *looks at previous comments* DOOR HINGE!!!
Notarhymeophobia is Zecora.
Yes I made that word up on the spot.
You have WAY to much free time on your Hands. Go cure cancer or something.
