WELCOME ONE AND ALL!

The internet knows me these days as Icarus. I like cheese. Hence the username. (avatar courtesy of the lovely Unofficial-Underfell on tumblr)

I have a very boring job where I am frequently bored. I fill the bored space with strange tales and dumb ideas. Many involve ponies. I have recently begun actually writing them, and enjoy the process. Unfortunately, I suffer from mild perfectionism and more ambition than skill. The result is me beating my face on the kitchen table while a story languishes on the white screen before me.

To help my writing process and help prevent further bodily harm, I need help in the form of feedback. Even if I do not respond I truly appreciate every comment I receive, even the silly ones. If you are interested in more in delivering in-depth feedback please message me.

Thanks for dropping by!

Is there ANY 'Southern' USAmerican dialect that uses y'all in the singular? I know in MLP y'all gets used in the singular on a regular basis. Having extended family all over the Carolinas, I have some exposure to country talk. I also know y'all is plural and that the singular I most encounter is 'ya' or 'you'.

Currently reading a fic where Apple Bloom is THE main character and the constant use of y'all in the singular is starting to drive me batty.:pinkiecrazy: What's worse is that for the most part they have the dialogue feeling very accurate, which makes the y'all that much more glaring!

Is this what it's like to listen to someone butcher your language?
