Daring Deux


Roses are red, violets are blue. That was a comma splice, this one is too.

What is a Comrade? Well, not me anymore, I guess. You can still call me that, though. I don't mind.

As for who Daring is? I don't actually know, myself. Or should that be 'I don't actually know myself'? Commas matter.

There are many, many places to go for grammar rules on the internet, but that doesn't seem to reach everyone. A lot of people, hobby writers especially, have trouble with grammar and are often too intimidated by these sites to dive in. I decided to write informational blogs to try to give writers the tools to understand how language works. If there are topics you find confusing, post a request in the comments below, and I'll see about writing a post to explain it. And never be afraid to ask questions. Ever.

List of topics I've covered.
-Writing the Royal Canterlot Voice
-Participles, Gerunds, and Tense
-Parts of Speech (Vocabulary)
-Contractions
-Vocatives
-Homophones

Indeed I was! And I couldn't agree with you more. SGaP, for me, is sonic tranquility. Eudaimonia.

And, just so you know, I still regularly listen to The World is as Iron, On SteamGear Wings, and Appleblossom. In fact, they often get mixed in with SGaP when I'm looking to relax :twilightsmile:.

You were the one who first introduced me to SoGreatandPowerful and "Space Pony", weren't you?


I still listen to Space Pony sometimes. It's very peaceful. Or, rather, it makes me feel that way.

My love for you right now transcends my ability to express using words.

KBR vs. Justin Wong (there will be a test later)

I've been too caught up in UGC! I forgot to watch it! Thanks for the reminder!
