As the silent of the Pie sisters, Marble writes all her thoughts in a journal including how crushed she is that Big Mac is dating Sugar Belle and not her. She then shows it to Pinkie because she knows her twin, Limestone won't understand and neither will Maud.

So will Limestone ever discover her journal? Great story by the way.

Of course PInkie Pie would read her own sister's diary.

Marble gave her permission in her own quiet Marble way.

I like this. Keep up the good work.

The text seems to be implying that Marble and Limestone are twins, if I'm not mistaken?

But I'm pretty sure the show has established that Limestone's the eldest, then Maud, and then Pinkie and Marble who are the twins of the family.

Slice of life is always uploaded! Can't we get more variety around here?

CAN SOMEONE NOTICE THE FACT THAT BIG MAC AND MARBLE MIGHT BE RELATED!I other than than that, good fic bruh. Maybe you could get Marble to address this

Dude. Even if they are, it is many many many 50x many times removed

I constantly wonder the same thing. Now yeah I write Aria and Sonata as sisters and ship them big time but there is one big difference between shipping females with other females than it is with a female and a male that are related. Incest is illegal for a reason. Any off spring would likely have serious genetic issues because of a lack of diversity in the gene pool.

Marble is something like 4th cousin twice removed or some such nonsense or even further related. You may very well be more closely related to somebody in your home town and not even know it if your family has been in an area for a long while. As for genetic diversity and laws in most states and in many countries 2nd cousins are considered fine (some allow first cousins but I will go with 2nd cousins since I think it is more common and since it better illustrates my point). Marble is at least 2 generations out from that if not more so this is not an issue.

The only reason we would think of this at all is mostly due to a quirk that in English (especially American English anyway) we use cousin whether they are first cousins, 2nd cousins, whatever the heck Marble is to Big Mac, or even to people that close to the family as friends but are not actually part of the family (sometimes we see people use Uncle or Aunt for that as well).

These characters being family is more a statistical anomaly than it is something that anybody would actually be worried about.

I hate to think how Limestone reacted to her broken hoof preventing her from working.

Thanks for explaining that for me Crimson. Come back and comment anytime. Your presence is wonderful.

Ok, I kind of what Marble to be a little bit more happy for Big Mac by now.

This is intriguing.

I was thinking that Marble was going to write

"Dear Big Mac,

I love you. Please re-consider marrying Sugar Belle.

Marble Pie"

Darn it! That's smart. Why didn't I think of that? That would have been hilarious.

Twin telepathy at work

Marble then slams the journal and goes back down to try and enjoy Hearth's Warming dinner with her family. At the dinner table, Pinkie talks with her sisters, AJ, and Big Mac as well as Sugar Belle. After awhile of talking, Pinkie blows her crap at Big Mac.

"Big Mac! You hurt my sister Marble's feelings! Did you know she loves you? Did you even realize her run out in pain when you kissed Sugar Belle under the mistletoe? It really hurt her feelings. She has had a crush on you since last Hearth's Warming. Did you know that? Did you ever even realize that?" snaps Pinkie.
Damn it Pinkie!!! :rainbowlaugh::facehoof:

How:rainbowhuh:?

I wish I had a twin to do this with

Is she getting over Big Mac?

Marble is grateful that at least Pinkie understands her pain and her in general since her twin sister, Limestone never really seems to since she's annoyed by how quiet she is.

The comma represents two separate sentences made into one.

9358580 Nope, that'd be a semicolon; a comma is a pause (there are long, convoluted lists of exactly what functions a comma can have, but basically it's a pause).

The above sentence, for example, could be two separate sentences, rather than one joined with a semicolon. 'Nope, that'd be a semicolon. A comma is a pause etc.' Whereas this:

Marble is grateful that at least Pinkie understands her pain and her in general since her twin sister, Limestone never really seems to since she's annoyed by how quiet she is.

'Marble is grateful that at least Pinkie understands her pain and her in general since her twin sister' makes no sense as a complete sentence. 'Limestone never really seems to since she's annoyed by how quiet she is' is better, but still not as understandable as the two together.

So I think it's one big sentence, which suggests Marble and Limestone are twins.

And Limestone's fury erupts in 3....2....1....BOOM!

Sorry Limestone, but you have a bit of a girly side too.

Limestone got called out by the silent one

I don't cry, but this is bringing tears:fluttercry:

Would the next chapter of even happened then?

If they were twins it would look like this:
Marble is grateful that at least Pinkie understands her pain and her in general since her twin sister, Limestone, never really seems to since she's annoyed by how quiet she is.
Did you notice the extra comma? It's after Limestone.

9381488 I think we might be focusing on this a bit more than is warranted for one missing comma :twilightsheepish:

Ok, there are two ways the sentence could go that would make sense:

Marble is grateful that at least Pinkie understands her pain and her in general since her twin sister, Limestone, never really seems to since she's annoyed by how quiet she is.

Marble is grateful that at least Pinkie understands her pain and her in general since Pinkie is her twin sister. Limestone never really seems to since she's annoyed by how quiet she is.

And the passage in the story does neither of those things. You're right, it doesn't have a comma after Limestone's name, so it doesn't correctly work as an aside. But it also doesn't have words before that which make sense. The sentence fragment reads:

Marble is grateful that at least Pinkie understands her pain and her in general since her twin sister

So, her twin sister what? The second example I gave above is how I'd add a couple of words to that so it makes sense.

The sentence is kind of broken either way. That's ok, clearly a word or comma has been missed out somewhere, these things happen and we shouldn't waste time feeling too bad about them. In this instance, the missing pieces left two different options for how the sentence could be read. And the reading in which Limestone is implied to be Pinkie's twin needs only a tiny comma to be added to work, so that's the one I went for, consciously or not.

The second way you wrote is correct, but you can't blame the writer for leaving out a couple of words. They may not have an editor to check it for them.

I am excited to see Limestone raise hell as a bridesmaid :pinkiehappy: Can't help feeling A Canterlot Wedding would have gone differently if Cadence's bridesmaids had included her and Maud rather than Lyra and co.

Limestone is likely only doing it for the money though and I don't think that makes her the girly one, simply a hard working mare making a profit.

So do you have any plans on finishing this?
