There are seventeen spelling and grammar errors in the text below:
A friend of mine Drake, used to play soccer competitively with Alfred, James, and hockey too; although the hockey was a newly-gained pasttime. When he stopped playing sports and just laid in bed everyone of his friends were suprised and they asked him if he were alright. He was ok, but not motivated, he was actually kind of depressed and felt badly.

*throws crimson rose* rest in peace. I've come to pay my respects to a great author, one who's time came to an abrupt end. See ya later buddy.

Wherever you may be in your life right now, I will hope and pray the both of you are blessed with great things. Whether or not new stories are written, or replies are posted, we will not forget you. May you both have good luck in your lives.

And, just for the fun of it, dream not of today, but dream of tommorow.

Browsing and find a great story. Go searching for more fics and: Hey, everyone. OtterMatt here. Just for the record, I’m not coming back to FimFic. Not ever.

Nooooo! I was too late. It's like abandoned story sadness but instant.

My attempt at subtlety:
A friend of mine, Drake, used to play soccer and hockey competitively with Alfred and James; although the hockey was a newly-gained pastime. When he stopped playing sports and instead just laid in bed, all of his friends were surprised, and they asked him if he was alright. He was okay, just not motivated, but he was actually kind of depressed and felt badly.
(The comment spellcheck is telling me 'ok' isn't a word. Ok.)

Halfway through making the top correction I knew I had to burn the whole thing to do it right, and made the next paragraph instead, before returning to the top paragraph to attempt to eke out a passable attempt.
Drake, a friend of mine, used to play soccer competitively with Alfred and James. Additionally, he played hockey, a newly-gained pastime, with them as well. When he stopped playing sports and instead just laid in bed, all of his friends were surprised, and asked him if he was alright. He was unmotivated and depressed.

I'd admonish the writer for his managing of lists and ask him just what he wanted to say in the last sentence, but I'm no editor and just did this out of curiosity. I know you've been offline for around half a year, but I did it anyway.

A+++++ Editor - will use again!
