Angela's first day 1 (Commission) by Morphy-McMorpherson Angela's first day 1 (Commission) by Morphy-McMorpherson
Looks like it's starting quickly! :p There will be a bit more than just BE in this series, mwahaha.

A series I'll be posting on the weekends (until it's all posted, obviously). This is a commission for :iconsoeren87:, in which Angela is retelling her first day of working for Lessien.

Grammar corrections: Spinning Awesome Smiley 

"...when I SAW the prettiest drink I've ever seen!"

"It SMELLED so sweet."

I hope this helped. :)

Seen is grammatically correct when used after words like "Had" or "Have", or in this case "I've/I have" so while it's a bit awkward using seen twice in once sentence it isn't wrong.

Smelt is also a past tense of "to smell", so it is not wrong either. xD

Don't mean to sound like a grammar nazi or a jerk or whatever, but I'm afraid FlowersArePretty is actually correct.

While both are in the past tense, you use "saw" right after the subject, and use "seen" only if you connect it with "has" or "have."

Example:

"I have seen everything"
"I saw everything"

Saying "I seen everything" is gramatically incorrect, and in this case, "There I was in Lessien's office when I saw the prettiest drink I've ever seen" is indeed the correct way of putting it.

Smelt is not commonly used as a past tense of "to smell", but it can be used. Seeing it is a bit odd though. Second source: grammarist.com/spelling/smelle…

It is indeed more common to say "smelled" over "smelt", so it is an accurate correction, to a degree.

Whew, enough being an a-hole about grammar. As always, I am intrigued to see where this is going and can't wait to see what you do with this character. She has quickly become a favorite of mine based off her design and personality :D

Yeah but I used it as I've seen, not I seen. "I've" being a contraction of "I have" means "I've seen" is indeed correct.

And just because something isn't as common doesn't mean it is grammatically wrong.

Umm...no, you didn't. You used the second one like that. For seen to be correct, it has to follow the word "have" or "I've". In that sentence, it comes before it. The sentence is "There I was in Lessien's office when I seen the prettiest drink I've ever seen.". Let's split that sentence into two.

"There I was in Lessian's office when I seen the prettiest drink."

"It was the prettiest drink I've ever seen"

See it now? Just because there is an "I've" in the sentence itself doesn't make the rule valid. The word "seen" must come directly after the word "have" or "I've" to be grammatically correct.

And yes, I know, I did say that. I said that FlowersArePretty had a point, not that they were 100% correct. It was an accurate correction, to a degree.

It's fine, there are a lot of nuances and such. xD
