"You realize what this means," Discord said from just behind Twilight's right ear.

"What?" she said. Actually, Twilight first said "Gah!" and jumped forwards, her landing cushioned by Pinkie's mane. But then she said "What?"

"I never added days to a month. Nopony had, because nopony was foolish enough."

Twilight became terribly aware of a pink glow emanating from her landing pad.

Discord's grin widened until the top of his head nearly fell off. "And when a pony unleashes a magic like none before it..."


"And that," said Twilight, "is how Pinkie became a draconequus."

Berry Punch nodded. She didn't even pretend to understand, but that never stopped a bartender from being sympathetic. "Another round?"

"Please."

(Delightful bit of silliness. Thank you for it.)

I laughed, I cried, I spilled juice on my good pants. Ten outta ten! :twilightsmile:

This is so stupid and I love it! :rainbowlaugh:

"But what about leap years?" Twilight asked.

"We don't talk about leap years!" Chronos snapped.

I still remember March 0th, 2000. I got free bus rides that day. :derpytongue2:

"Y2K" had screwed up the public transport's OS. That's what happens when you don't account for leap year rules. :rainbowwild:


...But that aside, my old, early 2000s-era radio-controlled alarm clock actually does this a lot.

It keeps messing up the date, indeed sometimes insisting on it being the 32nd of a month.

Even got the 35th once. It simply has no build-in checks to see if the date it gets from the radio signal makes any sort of sense. And it doesn't double-check for mistakes either.

It's a horribly unreliable alarm clock. :twilightsheepish:

At least it's usually just the date that's off, not the time... though it did once forward the time by 4 hours. Good thing the alarm was off that day. :twilightoops:


"Now March goes on until the 51st!"

But Pinkie, have you even considered what would happen if somepony was born between March 32nd and 51st, and Chronos changed the calendar back to what it was?! :pinkiegasp:


And what about ponies who's birthday was supposed to be April 1st? They have to wait extra long now. :pinkiesad2:

This was a wild ride from start to finish.

I love it.

This was just so funny! Thank you for making me smile.
