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.

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

#3 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

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

#4 · 102w, 1d 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 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

Fascinating. You have my permission to proceed.

#6 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

I'll keep an eye out for possible updates.

#7 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

MOREZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

:yay:

#8 · 102w, 1d 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 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

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

#10 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

YAY! Moar of your work! :pinkiehappy:

#11 · 102w, 1d 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 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

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

#13 · 102w, 1d 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 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

Oh good gravy.  :rainbowlaugh:

#15 · 102w, 1d 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 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

So Luna is actually Celestia's longtime marefriend?

Oh, well. Alright. :rainbowhuh:

...I can dig it.

#17 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

What.

SOOOOO many whats.

BUT SO MUCH EPIC AS WELL. AAAAAAAAAAAAHH~~!!!

#18 · 102w, 1d 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 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1377952

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 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

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 · 102w, 1d 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

#22 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1377566 Mother of God.

#23 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

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

#24 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1378114

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 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

:rainbowlaugh:

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 · 102w, 1d 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 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1378193

Well... your mom...

:ajbemused:

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

#29 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1378202

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 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

Princest shipping?

I am soooo totally in.

#31 · 102w, 1d 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 · 102w, 1d 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 · 102w, 1d 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 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

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

#37 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

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

#38 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

my god

#39 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

Solid concept with plenty of room for expansion and shenanigans.

Have an obligatory :moustache:

#40 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

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

#41 · 102w, 1d 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 · 102w, 1d 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 · 102w, 1d 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?"

THERE ARE NO BRAKES ON THE CRAZY TRAIN~! :heart:

#44 · 102w, 1d 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 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

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

#46 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

>> see character tags

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

>> after reading

:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

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 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

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

#48 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

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

#49 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1378432

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

#50 · 102w, 1d ago · · ·

I have a feeling this is all a misunderstanding.

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