While welcoming a foreign dignitary to Princess Twilight's Palace, Applejack refers to the single monarch as "Y'all." This, of course, causes the entire Kingdom of Equestria to explode into flames.

Okay, maybe not explode into flames, but it could happen... right? Just ask Twilight...

that cover o.o

Oh Rarity, you silly goose. You were doing so well! :rainbowlaugh:

'Cuz I'm y'allin', straight ballin',
with a flick of my hoof, every apple on the tree is fallin',
'cuz there ain't no stallin' my callin'
got the colts straight fawnin' over my bottom,
But I don't pay them no attention, and oh, should I mention
I'm all about the money and the carts with suspension
Bouncin', waitin' for the fly boy with the smile,
Take him to the ground, roll in the hay for a while, til then
I'll roll a fool under my shoes with a kick and a wink,
make ya take a dive in the drink, don't even think
that you can stand my swag and flow cuz yo...

I'm straight y'allin.

Nice little fanfic. I always loved Applejack in your stories - she's just so sweet and lovable!

“... ... ...”

Don't ever do this.

“So... your Highness... shall we embark to Sugarcube Corner?”

Whoa whoa whoa whoa. Okay, I can understand your wanting to end this story on a punchline, but seriously, if this were all it took to set her off, Luna Eclipsed would have turned into The Hanging of Twilight Sparkle before the first commercial break. 'm jus' sayin'. :applejackunsure:

Sadly, the Royal English Academy couldn't get people to correct their ways, and added "irregardless" as an official word. :fluttercry:

To be fair, the Sparkle friendship castle would be cooler if it had a moat.

Even before I read, thumbs up for the cover:rainbowlaugh:

Most entertaining, especially that ending. Oh, Rarity. A lady should know better.

Thank you for it, Skirts.


Actually, pretty sure Twilight was mentally imploding over:

Irregardless, a certain modicum of decency wouldn't hurt one's vocabulary.”

It took me a moment too; It gets a bit lost since Rarity/we don't see Twilight's reaction until after Rarity's second line.

Saw it coming immediately.

I have horrid grammar as anyone who knows me can attest. And I definitely have a friend like Twilight, that tries to correct me.

Awesome story.

At least Applejack never pronounced you all as ya'll.

Oh boy.

*beats head against the door to the TARDIS repeatedly*

Dammit Twilight...

Exceptionally well written. All characters were within their personalities, and you could tell who was speaking simply based on their speech patterns.

Well done!

“Oh, absolutely, darling.” Rarity slid the dress into its ornate box, then tied a ribbon around it. “Irregardless,

Heh. Being a Southerner, I can attest that despite what any fancy-schmancy grammar professor may tell you, there ain't no "official" usage of the word y'all. I've used it for singular and plural. It's all about the vernacular, ya dig?

Still, I really liked this. Simple and to the point, and it properly recognized Applejack as Best Pony. Great Job, Skirts.

The bomb did not explode.
That was Twilight.

Is that your own freestyle creation, or an adaptation of existing lyrics?

Twilight's adorably disastrous in this.


Bit of both. One line is borrowed from Snoop Dog, but the rest is me.

zaponator #26 · Jul 8th, 2015 · · · l ·

That really got out of hand fast...

...dayum, a moat does sound pretty sweet.

I only wanted to visit to check on story updates.

Irregardless, I now have a new story in my Favourites.

zaponator #29 · Jul 8th, 2015 · · · i ·

Mmm, best pony indeed. :ajsmug:

This was delightful. Short sweet and adorable.
Characterization was as fun as ever, of course, and Applejack is definitely best pony.
Good show.

That conclusion... Are we going to get a Twilight Brain Implosion Mark 2?

Possible alternate title: "Twilight Sparkle Has Yet Another Conniption".:twilightoops:

RoboRed #33 · Jul 8th, 2015 · · · a ·

In. What. Way? Do I wear a huge pink diaper?!”

“Erm...” Rarity fidgeted. “Not at this precise second...”

...I'm kind of curious as to what brought about that particular response...:rainbowderp:

RoboRed #34 · Jul 8th, 2015 · · · l ·

Well, that memory trip went from 0 to "lolwut" in a hurry.:rainbowhuh:

Perfect dialogue pacing. I LOVE it.

RoboRed #36 · Jul 8th, 2015 · · · l ·

Rainbow joining Rarity for tea? Now I'm starting to wonder if Twilight is having a fever dream.:twilightoops:

RoboRed #37 · Jul 8th, 2015 · · · i ·

Warm fuzzy feelings all around!:twilightsmile:

“Oh Applejack...” Twilight sighed, leaning forward to nuzzle the mare. “You really are best pony.”


And after that, Applejack was no longer allowed to talk when foreign dignitaries were present

“She referred to Duke Autumn Breeze in the singular... using a plural second-person pronoun with a contraction!

"It's called 'pluralis majestatis', sugarcube. Ah was bein' polite. Really, Twilight, y'all a princess. Y'all should know 'bout this." :ajsmug:

I... I think I got a migraine just by reading their yelling.

I am dead f-ing serious.

iisaw #46 · Jul 8th, 2015 · · · n' ·

Maybe it's like the Royal "We"... an honorary plural? :applejackconfused:
