Already, people are using emojis for their story titles.

I don't know whether I should love or hate this site now. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Have an upvote, anyway.

Thanks Knighty, you've ruined Fimfiction.

8199729 You damn beautiful bastard, you.

Don't know why people don't like this, I think it's funny as hell. ๐Ÿ˜

Honestly? This story doesn't seem half bad so far. I don't really get the large dislike ratio, but I wouldn't worry about it. This story looks interesting, and I'd like to see where you go with it.

8199743 Because it's hilarious, and I'm making a point.

8199729 It's rare to see both like and dislike being half and half. I have to wonder why?

Wow that wa-๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ˜ง๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ‘พ

8199954 Because everyone hates change.

I have to say that I too was pleasantly surprised by how well Twilight and Cadance's dance translated to emojis.

Don't worry guys! I speak fluent emojinese! I'll translate! Yes, I know I have too much free time, but it's my summer break. Fight me. :ajsmug:

Spike: "๐Ÿฆ„โญ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ก๐ŸŒŸ! ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฅ!๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘„๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™‚๏ธ!"

"Unicorn Starlight Glimmer! Something has gone wrong! I can't speak and I'm a guy!"

Guard: "๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฆ, ๐Ÿฆ„โญ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ก๐ŸŒŸ."

"Embarrassingly scared, unicorn Starlight Glimmer."

Trixie: "๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ’ข๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘„!"

"Puffy face! I hate that I can't speak!"

Twilight: "๐Ÿ‘? ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿฆ„โญ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ก ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘„. ๐Ÿ•Š๐Ÿด๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿ˜ณ?"

"You have eyes? Curious. Unicorn Starlight Glimmer's good at speaking for once. Winged horses like Fluttershy?"

Pinkie: "๐Ÿ‘Œ,๐Ÿ•Š๐Ÿด๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿ˜ณ! ๐Ÿ™Š,๐Ÿ™‰! ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‚!"

"Okay, winged horse Fluttershy! I can't say or hear a word you're saying! And I love it!"

"๐ŸŽ? ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ!" She scowled, "๐Ÿค ๐ŸŽ, ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ, ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿค ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ?!"

"Apple? Why am I sayin' apple?! I mean, I do like apples, but why am I only sayin' apple?!" (Come on, that one's obvious! :ajsmug:)

Starlight: "Shit."

:twilightangry2::ajbemused:

8200388 Use Firefox to see the emojis properly? If you're on PC that is.

This story made me horrified and sad.

Have an upvote. If for nothing else than for doing something different.

Unicorn Star Lightbulb Shinystar! Fear disappointed, but relieved! Downvote lips, not good male!

Awesome. That was something unique. Have a like and a follow :twilightsmile:

Hey, this is actually original. Well, it's the first time I've seen this type of story. Props!

Damn, this story had me hooked. Great stuff!

Wait do the I's count as .5s? I thought the half words would be a .5?

Why didnt they just whrite what they needed on a piece of paper and figure things out from there?

Real fun story! Love the out-of-box thinking to step out from structure. Provided some fun deciphering and some big belly laughs. You had me in fits with Applejack's conversation :)

Sad to see so many downvotes though! Are folk so down on something fun and interesting? It was still nicely written.

Maybe the downvotes could have been because of the resolution? Part of me wants to say that an extra chapter might have been nice. Maybe to put in a few more gags or show how the girls might solve something with just emoji for communication. It is a bit of a downer to end with them stuck that way. Forever stuck spouting pictures at one another. Still a good story and a fun quick read regardless :)

Oh man, this story got so much hate because I wrote and published it the DAY that FimFic added emoji support, which everybody was HATING ON at the time. I knew what I was doing, lol, and I'm not even a little bit sorry.

Writing counts towards the total.

Wow. The sheer novelty of the concept actually got me laughing in delight at the beginning.

Got even better as I started to recognize the meaning of some of the symbols and how their arrangements together conveyed meaning in a way that made sense in my mind.
Very nice.
Thanks for this.

As an experiment to see just how far one hundred words can stretch, I am going to attempt to summarize my feelings on this story in less than one hundred words. And seeing as how I will have used fifty six words by the end of this sentence, I already get just how difficult that is.

The premise is entertaining, especially given when this fic came out.

Those emojis are a bitch to try and read, though. Other than Starlight's name, Twilight and Cadance's greeting, and a few smaller sentences, I couldn't follow a thing.

Applejack can only say Apples.๐Ÿ’ฏ ๐Ÿคฃ

Welp, time to go get Sunset Shimmer.

I...don't...have anything to say....:pinkiegasp::rainbowhuh:

Actually yeah I do:

WHAT THE HAY DID I JUST RRAD?!

"๐Ÿฆ„โญ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ก๐ŸŒŸ! ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฅ!๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘„๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™‚๏ธ!" Spike said, rushing to grab her by the hoof and looking up at her anxiously.

...Hey, I got the Star Light Glimmer part, at least!

This was really clever and enjoyable, kudos on managing to make it work so well. And Applejack was god damn hilarious :rainbowlaugh:
