Alright mate, you get a like.  It's well formatted and the premise is completely out of left field.  If you can keep this going, more power to you.  


#2 · 218w, 23h ago · · ·

@Description: The fifth one. The fifth statement is false.

#3 · 218w, 23h ago · · ·

Damn . . . that's all I can say. This shall be interesting. Will be watching.

#4 · 218w, 23h ago · · ·

Good story so far! I can't say I've read a story like this before, so I can't wait for an update! For now, I'm going to read your other stories.

#5 · 218w, 23h ago · · ·

Fascinating. You have my permission to proceed.

#6 · 218w, 23h ago · · ·

I'll keep an eye out for possible updates.

#7 · 218w, 23h ago · · ·


I WILL MAKE YOU LOVE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!! >:D


#8 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·

Secondary to your other stories or not, this deserves some attention. The premise alone is worth the read!

Gold star & thumbs up for you.

#9 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·

This... is... hilarious. Favorited.

#10 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·

YAY! Moar of your work! :pinkiehappy:

#11 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·

I like where this is going. I don't think I have read an alicorn transformation story like this. Also, not sure if Celestia is trolling. :trollestia:

#12 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·

Passes by... View count at 69... Epic win. :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

#13 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·

well...this is a shock but one I cant totally deal with... wonder if this relationship, assuming it develops as I think it will, will be a three-way thing...

#14 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·

Oh good gravy.  :rainbowlaugh:

#15 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·

This sounds promising, and I love the premise. I'm a sucker for Twilight to Alicorn fics, and this one hits all the right notes. Can't wait for the next part... uh... whenever it comes out.

#16 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·

So Luna is actually Celestia's longtime marefriend?

Oh, well. Alright. :rainbowhuh:

...I can dig it.

#17 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·


SOOOOO many whats.


#18 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·

why would you do this???? You put out this awesomeness with no intent to get back to it any time soon? That's not nice. Not nice at all.:applecry:

#19 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·


I'm sorry, but if this really does get popular I'll be right back to it after the first story arc of my other story. Fortunately that should only be two more chapters.

#20 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·


Oh my god, it all makes sense now.  Like this story people, like it so that criticalmess must suffer greater pressure than ever before!  Just kidding man, good job.

#21 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·

HOLY CRAP D: I LOVE THIS. OMFG I FREAKIN LOVE THIS STORY :D Twilight is busy having a combined stroke/heartattack/aneurysm AND I CAN'T PUT THIS STORY DOWN :pinkiecrazy: Tracking. Upthumbing. And, if I'm not already, I am WATCHING this author. @_@ Like a goddamn hawk. :D

#23 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·

>>1378100 It is false in that there are not one, but two false statements, one of which is the fifth.

#24 · 218w, 22h ago · · ·


But then that would make the statement true as the qualification of "one of these statements is false" has been satisfied. In fact, it has been satisfied twice over by itself being false, thus making it true. Logically, the only statement that can be false is one of the four above it.

You're Welcome :twilightsmile:

#25 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·


Oh geeze! I was just giggling for the entire last bit of this story! :pinkiehappy: Twilight freaking out is a lot of fun to read and this time she actually has reason to go nuts!

Oh poor Twilight... well, at least its not death by snoo snoo! -You win an Internet if you get that reference! :trollestia:

If we must wait... well, we must! But this story is DEFINITELY worth continuing. :yay:

#26 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·

>>1378126 It depends on your interpretation of the term. Strictly, "One of these statements is false" would imply "Exactly one of these statements is false." But if you more broadly define it as "At least one of these statements is false," then the possibility of the fifth being said statement brings forth a paradox (wherein the statement being false renders itself true, a simple liar paradox). Assuming the Novikov self-consistency principle, the probability of the broader definition being true is zero. Thus, the fifth statement may or may not be false, in which case the number of other statements in the description that are false may be equal to or exceed one.

At first I was like :ajbemused:

then I was :ajsleepy:

but eventually... :applejackunsure:

I was :ajsmug:

You got my approval to write another chapter... but not till we get more Changling Twilight...

#28 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·


Well... your mom...


Stop looking at me like that Applejack... Okay, fine, you win this round. BUT I WILL RETURN! (Spoke Capsule) :trixieshiftleft:

#29 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·


Did I mention I wrote this months ago, before even After the Sun? Back when I was still experimenting with story ideas? I may have cleaned it up recently, but its plot bears all of the markings of my early creative mind.

#30 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·

Princest shipping?

I am soooo totally in.

#31 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·

>>1378205 I like how you didn't point out that, through my complex chain of logic, I did nothing more than confirm that the number of false statements is equal to or greater than one, which may have been implied in the first place.

I also like how you didn't point out that the Novikov self-consistency principle only applies to time travel paradoxes :twilightsheepish:

#32 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·

I don't care if this gets featured,

It's featured. I don't care if its secondary, I want to see the rest of the story eventually. :pinkiehappy:

#33 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·

Panicking Twilight is best Twilight.

  It should be interesting to see where this goes.

Also, Clover is Luna? That's pretty awesome as well.

#35 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·

That is both horrifying and hilarious. Horror for Twi, hilarity for us.

#37 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·

You lowercased Twilight at some point - copy paste on a touch screen s a joke, cannot point out. ast

#38 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·

my god

#39 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·

Solid concept with plenty of room for expansion and shenanigans.

Have an obligatory :moustache:

#40 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·

Will track and read in a couple hours when I'm done writing:trixieshiftright:

#41 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·

Spoiler Alert: "One of these statements is false" is the false statement. :trollestia:

But this is a most interesting story. I will follow this.

#42 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·

This does bring up an interesting question: the legend says that Nightmare Moon was created due to Luna being upset that ponies didn't like her night.  But with the things revealed here... what other causes were involved, either alongside or instead of the classical reason?

#43 · 218w, 21h ago · · ·

Oh, also:

"Twi?" Rainbow Dash carefully pulled Twilight's hooves off of her shoulders. "Why don't we slow down this crazy train for a second?"


#44 · 218w, 20h ago · · ·

oh right you are the one that wrote Want me Need me Love me that is a good story, you have a natch for the stress out Twilight stuff, though i have to say the Luna being Clover the Clever bit is interesting, but damn man that was total Trollestia if i have ever seen any

#45 · 218w, 20h ago · · ·

Hahaha, this is awesome and funny! This funesome! :pinkiehappy:

#46 · 218w, 20h ago · · ·

>> see character tags

Good Lord, Twilestia? Meh, gonna check it out, see what happens

>> after reading


Ok, this is so awesome I can't even. Alicorn by snoo-snoo. It does raise the question tho, how did Celestia become the way she is? And what of Cadence? Will she be here too?

#47 · 218w, 20h ago · · ·

Great story, also does anypony know how to switch from thumbs down to thumbs up, I clicked the wrong one.

#48 · 218w, 20h ago · · ·

How did I know... they always, ALWAYS make it to the bar...

#49 · 218w, 20h ago · · ·


I normally don't... but I'll thumbs up my own story to offset yours. As long as you're sincere.

#50 · 218w, 20h ago · · ·

I have a feeling this is all a misunderstanding.

But I hope it's not, because that would be way funnier.:pinkiehappy:
