Celestia has had enough of half-arsed promises from her loyal subjects. It's time to wear a different hat.

BY THE NAMES OF DISCORD, HARMONY, FAUST, LUNA, AND CELESTIA, I DO HEREBY DECLARE THIS FICTION IS OF EXCELLENT QUALITY.

Also, apparently I'm first post. Hmmm.

Brilliant idea! BY THE NAMES THAT ARE MENTIONED ABOVE, I INTEND FOR THIS TALE TO BECOME FEATURED! SOMEHOW! I don't know how a tale becomes featured BUT I'M GOING TO DO IT! SO HELP ME CHRYSALIS!

971513

Heh, thanks. I would be thrilled to see one of my stories featured, so here's hoping :twilightsmile:

So help me Micheal Jackson, I'll be the first one to comment one this!

......

Micheal Jackson isn't very reliable.

AS OP IS MY WITNESS, I WILL FAV THIS STORY

This is wonderful!

I give it 5 hearts :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

They need Mann Co to lend them a few hats.

Also, In B 4 Featured!

Not quite sure if you have the tone for the princesses right, but the premise was great, you shoehorned in Rarity just perfectly, and the ending was full of lols. Gets a thumbs up from me. :)

By OP's beard!

Er, I mean.

Not bad! Pretty interesting story here. :D

UFB

By Luna and Celestia that will be featured for pure hilarity!

This.
Is.
Genius!

A mustache for you :moustache:!

971784

Thanks :twilightsmile: Celestia in particular is very OOC, but that's unavoidable given the premise

By Lauren Faust, Hasbro should make this canon

With Deadpool as my witness, I declare I shall always say "With Celestia as my witness!"

It's nice to see that someone appreciates Rarity's giant hats :duck:

Well, if ponykind ever decideds to invade, all we have to do is swaer abunch of stuff in the name of each soldier.

That's epic!:yay:
Oh and I wonder... even if that machine creates paper out of nowhere it still needs to go somewhere... so where do those printed oaths go? A magical disintegrator? A fiery pit? A pool of lava? A black hole?:rainbowhuh:
Meh, whatever, this simply HAS to be featured!:twilightsmile:

I swear in the name of FiMFiction that this will be featured.

971513 That's one fucking creative comment ya got there! :eeyup:

Here take this little moustache :moustache:

Clever. This story made me think of the commandment about taking God's name in vain. Every time somebody lies while swearing on the bible, Jesus will appear with a chorus of angels singing fanfare and drop kick them.

They are no doubt recycled and turned into scrolls for Twilight's endless to-do lists :twilightblush:

I really enjoyed it!

Two things caught my eye, though: "stratasphere" should be "stratosphere," and Rainbow Dash says “I'm going to follow here!” I only recognized them because they interrupted the flow a little.

972296

Thanks. "Stratasphere" is intentional to show the age of the CMC, it's a fancy word :unsuresweetie: Fixed the other

972321

:ajbemused:

"Ah reckon Ah have trouble with fancy-shmancy voca-blary words too, sometimes."

This was hilarious. Just hilarious. Though I find myself wondering whether the rest of the comments are all going to be "With [insert name here] is my witness". Meh, I'll try a few.

WITH LUNA IS MY WITNESS, THE INSANITY SHALL BE TRIPLED!

WITH DISCORD IS MY WITNESS, I WILL TROLL LIKE NEVER BEFORE!

WITH CHRYSALIS IS MY WITNESS, I WILL BECOME EVEN MORE OBSESSED WITH CHANGELINGS!

There. That should do it. And before I forget, liked and faved.

Good day, my fine fellow.

This is strangely awesome. I like almost everything about it. Though the ending fell just a little bit flat compared to all the great jokes before.

972187
I'm... pretty sure that's not in the Bible.

I really enjoyed this story. It's goofy, it's interesting, and it's perfectly in-character. Thanks for writing another Celestia story for me to enjoy!
...Okay, I have to do it, don't I?
By the Royal Pony Sisters, this was the greatest story I've ever read! As Celestia is my witness, I'll never enjoy another story quite like this one again!

BY THE BERK! This is fantastic....

"Hi-ho, Celestia! Away!"

You got me. :rainbowlaugh:

Bananas, bananas everywhere! :trollestia:

Really cool fic. I started grinning like crazy when Vinly entered the bar. Great work!

This was pretty fantasticing awesome. I hope it gets featured.

If it's “Hi-ho Celestia away” should not the next line be . “Getteum up Pipsqueak”
Forgive me Jay I couldn't help myself. For all you kids out there that's to Jay Silverheels aka Tonto. His horse Scout was a pinto

With Luna as my witness, adcoon shall write a sequel!

Hilarious!! I lost it at Soarin'. :rainbowlaugh: Leave it to Twilight to be the only pony left who swears by Luna's name!

I knew this thing would get featured JUST BY LOOKING AT IT.:trixieshiftleft:

This is such a great, original idea.
"Don't make me make you make me wear it!” was a personal highlight.
Also, I thought I was the only human who ever used the term 'Half-arsed' anymore, it's nice to know I'm not.
Well done mate, this is going straight to the favourites.
All the best

Hah. A short and clever read. Well done.

If ponies started to swear in other ponies' names, an all-out war could be won that way.

*A couple million allied troops* By Mussolini's beard, we'll win the war! *Beard catches on fire, Mussolini burns to death*

Never ever let Twilight know she can get a direct line to one of the Princesses and then not expect her to use it! :derpytongue2:

By Odin's Mighty Beard, this is awesome!

(How do beards react to telepathic communation?)

I wonder, does this phenomenon affect all ponies or just the Royal Sisters?

AS TWILIGHT SPARKLE IS MY WITNESS, I SHALL TEST THIS THEORY IMMEDIATELY!

Also, how has Celestia (who is clearly in troll-mode here) not exploited this to troll Luna?

The picture itself has me sold.

1. Yeah, "Don't make me make you make me wear it" was pretty great.

2. I know I've seen a couple stories where Luna can hear wishes made on the stars, which is kind of a similar premise.

This is super duper :pinkiehappy: More is required purdy please.

AS JH5KPONY MY WITNESS, I SHALL COMMENT ON THIS FIC!

971784
I kind of agree; the characterizations felt rushed.
It would have been nice to have a more gradual build-up, showing Celestia becoming more and more distraught as the day progresses:
- Celestia in front of her mirror, grooming herself before the day begins.
("By Celestia's gray mane!")
Celestia frantically and self-consciously checks for any gray hairs

- Celestia meeting with Parliament/noble ponies
("By Celestia's horn!" "By Celestia's hoof!" "By Celestia's sun!")
Celestia cannot get a word in edgewise

- Celestia, with a migraine, trying to relax in a bubble bath after waking Luna up an hour early to cover for her
("By Celestia's fat flank!")
*SNAP* :pinkiecrazy:


Oh well.
Mind you I love the premise behind this story.
The thought of Celestia being constantly interrupted by everypony's frivolous oaths made me laugh

972385
I believe that particular reference is from the Gospel of Leon, right after St. Henry's second epistle to the Guidos.

973277
"26 And lo, the Lord did say: 'Speak ye not the name of the LORD in vain, or I shall step down from my mighty parapet, and I shall crane kick thee in the throat.
'27 And I will lead the angels in a holy chorus, and their song shall be like the rock ballads of old.'"
28 And yea, it was awesome.

Dat Ending! :twilightblush::trollestia:
Also, TF2 style hat ftw! :rainbowkiss:

Okay, so which of my six named entities put this in the featured box? Have to give proper credit.
