Hello? Is... is this thing on? The red light means it's on, right? Or do I... I have to push a button, don't I? Well, which one? There's like ten! The black one? They're all black!

Throughout all of history, one concept has kept both the written and spoken word from becoming an unintelligible mess. That concept is that most holy of grounds known by some as "grammar." It sets down rules for language to follow, and keeps it free of distortion.

Yet something is wrong. The rules are failing. And only one pony so much as suspects that something is wrong. Something that goes deeper than a simple appearance of errors. Something that could be an attack on the very root of language itself.

..................Seems good but I'm so confused.

On my read-list, FNAN, you usually write good stories, so this won't be a waste of space.

Original concept. Potential for endless wordplay. Excellent characterization.

Well done!:twilightsmile:

Twilight's a grammare:facehoof:(got me doing it) nazi?...seems legit

#7 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

OH I see that the shadow of the 'incorrect grammar' is going around there.... That kind of shadow turns around every writter I think :rainbowlaugh::rainbowwild:

#8 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>534452

Uh, actually they use "Everyone" and "Everypony", as Everypony replaces Everybody.

Just mentioning.

This is going to be so epic, but I feel so sorry for you, the slightest mistake in your own writing (or worse, a lack of a mistake where it should be) could destroy the point of the story.

You have an epic journey before you, good sir! I shall await ye expectantly!

Penis broken. Please use quill.

Kerning, ri-ight...

I don't know why, but this

Indeed, at this point, the badger found itself wondering why it was suddenly the focus of the story, especially considering the interesting predicament Spike now found himself in.

was my favorite part of the chapter, despite it not being the focus.

In any case, I'm eager to see where you go with this.

#13 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

yur doin it rong. :twilightangry2:

I hope some grammar crazed bronies learn some lessons from this chapter

This is bound to end up being HILARIOUS! :pinkiehappy:

#17 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I feel your pain, Twilight.

Or should I say that I feel you're pain? Heh...

#18 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Oh my...

As a loyal member of the Grammarian National Socialist Party, I eagerly look forward to more.

:pinkiegasp: It's the Cylence, a race of mind altering aliens bent on forcing ponies to misspell things and controlling their societal development!

Quick, we need a Doctor, the one, the only, the (sees something in the corner).... bestesterest.... that looks wrong..... oh well. :derpytongue2:

>>535841 Call Dr. Whooves! Quick, so he can exterminate the aliens!

Strange but good story so far. I saw a mistake in your writing where I don't think there should have been. You wrote 'thePrincess?' and didn't have a space. Making the same mistake as Rarity, now are we? :raritywink:

#26 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

...THis story is hilarious, but I think the best thing about this story is the simple fact that Twilight is RIGHT...

Brilliant Work! Id like to see mor! :moustache:

#27 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>536002 OH DEAR GOD.

...

Fixed. Now let us never speak of this again.

#28 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>536024 Hmmmm... I want 5 million muffins. Or one giant muffin, blueberry please. Put it in a suitcase on the corner of Hat Avenue and Pony Street. Make sure no one follows you. I will expect it at midnight tonight.

#29 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I have to agree with Twilight.  Using there instead of they're is an offense deserving of death.

#30 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Brilliant story. But you made one small eensy problem.

It is called Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder.

OCD is where you have a habit to alleviate a fear, OCPD is when the habit is the beginning and the end itself.

Grammar Nazi Twilight is a go! :twilightsheepish:

What ever wierd and don't care:twilightoops:

#33 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I haven't even read it and I already gave it a like. Grammar Nazi fics will always hold a special place in my heart.

#34 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I see one person disliked Twilights nightmare.

Anyway good fic.

#35 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

...Aiming to the Grammar Nazi crowd this time, eh?

You've got my track.

#36 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I love your story. People always tell me to chill out about grammar, but being a writer I just can't.:applejackunsure:

BR
#37 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Its good.

#38 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I cant see the problem here. I guess its a good think we have spell check.

(That hurt even to write. Also, your author's note looks a lot like the alt text on XKCD 1015. Coincidence? Anyway, this is awesome.)

#39 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I mix up it's and its all the time:twilightangry2: So annoying.  Fuck the english language, it's one of the hardest languages to learn, and for good reason!

#40 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Twilight, even as a "grammar nazi" myself, I believe that you are overreacting.  Please, calm down.

Every intelligent living organism has made a mistake at some point in their lives, with grammar and spelling usually being at the bottom of the importance list. All you have to do to ignore those grammar and spelling issues and laugh it off.

Unless, of course, it is a future-determining essay/contract/etc. Then you have all the rights to scold the writer.

#41 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Hello, fellow grammar nazi here~ I must point out immediately: No point beating around the bush like he did when Twilight realized her latest friendship was report was at risk of being "tardy". THERE IS AN ERROR IN THIS SENTENCE. Take out the 'was' in between friendship and report!!! Now!!! Immediately!!! Before I explode!-

Sorry about that, just one of my little..."episodes..." Anyway, I can completely relate to everything that Twilight is feeling. Whenever somepony makes any kind of error in their writing, I totally flip out. ^^;

Cheers!

I Could totally see this being made into an episode for the actual show.:twilightangry2:  

#43 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I caught all the intended grammar mistakes, and none others. I think you're good. :twilightsmile:

(That's saying something, coming from a person who knows when to use "to," "two," "too," "their," "they're," "there," and even the obscure (yet useful) fact that "they" and "them" can be used as nongenderspecific singulars.)

P.S. Curse you inner grammar Nazi, get back into your cell! :pinkiecrazy:

#44 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

yea we all get that way sometimes when we spot grammatical errors.....:ajsmug:

you know you do :ajbemused:

#45 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Excellent work.  Let me complement you.

After all, even when broken, the penis mightier than the sword.

#46 · 264w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·
