Episode 522: What About Discord?
Written by Neal Dusedau
Fluttershy may have been Discord's first genuine friend, but he's always held a particular interest in wearing on Twilight Sparkle's patience ever since he was first freed from his statue prison. Though the degree of antagonism varies, of late he's taken to working from behind an aegis of assistance. He can impart some important life lessons to the young princess, yes? Often as not, however, he also manages to be hoist by the products of his own meddling. It kind of puts a damper on doing it too frequently.
At least he is taking steps towards befriending more ponies and such despite this.
Smooze looked pretty happy to get out and about again.

The Cutie Re-Mark Pt. 2
Princess Twilight's efforts to stop Starlight from altering the past continue, but she fears that they may be in vain.
As in my brothers who, at the time, didn't like ponies.
The world needs Starlight Glimmer as Zoom…
She should've turned a few of them into cadances
That way Shining Armor could have his very own harem
It's more or less just the case of Freedom Planet (that Sonic fan game).
The game is the best 2D Sonic game to date.
The only fault of the game is that it's not a Sonic game.
At least we're getting proper resolution and such now, so the change is definitely not a complete loss in that way.
I think the Smooze is pretty much always happy to begin with
They come here every now and then to talk to us.
They've been doing so for years
I think they even asked us how we liked the different possible mascots they came up with
They're more Faust-y, with very different proportions and designs. It's one of the things I like about "Herds".
Also, Foenum really doesn't feel anything like Equestria, which appeals to me for some reason.
Oh, I thought you were hanging out with some bro dude assholes who shit on pony but still would play that game with you.
I guess literal brothers makes it less confusing.
>Have a brother who gives me shit for liking pony.
>I point out he owns Pomeranians.
>Plural, as in more than one.
>And he calls me a faggot.
>"It's not the same, fucker."
>'I don't have to go on walkies to the mailbox with a thousand dollar rat on a pink leash.'
>'You own purse dogs, and call me a faggot?'
>"Hey man, they are worth money."
>'You had that one spayed.'
>'It's worth the costs of the food now you fucking idiot."
I'm still here, but I don't see here anyone else from Russia.
>You're forgetting about the absolutely godawful story, deviantart tier characters and below Huniepop level voiceacting
That's the case with all of Sonic, anon.
I'm here too. Let's get some cuddling.
>Pinkie, AJ and Winona all salivating over Discord's third leg
that's pretty unf to be honest
Yeah, and he gives me shit for liking something cute.
I have had to dog sit those things on occasion and the first time I took them out around the block I had an image in my head of the buffed out dude walking Twilight on the street.
I realized I looked like that at that very moment, two little poofs of hair darting around being held by a guy in a Navy shirt.
Trying his hardest to not be noticed by his neighborhood as he walked them around the block.
>And everyone was outside.
Oкaы, гooд, нoв ит'c фoнeтиц opдep.
Пoни хoчeт пoни пoни.
Please, never write this way... It's awful. Really, bro. You fuck into my eyes.
I guess, my English fuck your eyes to...
Hi bronies! I wanna pony. Yes, you know what I mean. Can you help me?
Welcome to modern cartoons proportions. You wouldn't complain about this, would you?
Yeah. But it's our colors.
You want us to translate our memes?
Learn Cyrillic, anon.
You'll even understand Sparta runes! It's really great.
Only two messages per minute. How can you live with this?
Well, make yourself comfortable and please put on these panties, Princess.
Would you like some cake?
I don't even know who is Russian, who isn't Russian, who is pretending to be Russian and who is pretending to be not Russian
I'll always complain about Mabel.
But what's happening now isn't her fault and I hope Stan beats the shit out of Ford for trying to separate Dipper and Mable and just end up making them like him and Stan.
What in the box?
Its not like we could do anything against it. During Euro-time the thread is rather slow
I remember learning Cyrillic to play that Day Z game. That was such a fun time standing around a sign with my friends trying to mispronounce the name of the town we were in so we could figure out where we were.
Then I saw a lot of the Cyrillic letters were also in Greek and had more motivation to learn the general sound of the letters.
My brain hasn't been wired to read it fast enough for sentences though. I can pick our loanwords but sentences are in still in Russian, not English.
These numbers are a great detector, you know.
You can learn Cyrillic on your own.
I don't see much point in being fluent in Russian but at least being able to read and write in Cyrillic is always a plus, just like reading Moon runes is a big plus even if you don't speak Japanese per say.
I liked the part where Twilight did a thing with books.
I want to be turned into a zebra mare.
I hope I dream about it.
Time for beb.
>make yourself comfortable
Done! But where can I get your panties?
>That's fan after people who arguing with me, if I write in a wrong English in our imageboard.
You're making me mad for instance. And there is no sence having an argument with a stubborn slav-plebs.
This. I see so much bad English all the time that my brain autocorrects it and I can't even tell when there's a mistake unless I'm looking for them. I've heard that if you see the the word "the" in a sentence in a row often times you can't even see the duplicate.
Bad example though.
カタカナ is super useful. It took me 4 hours to learn to read it a long time ago. Once an English-speaking person learns how words are formed you can see all kinds of useful words to navigate stuff you're interested in.
aahahahaha what the fuck
Celestia looks like an oversized sausage dog.
I had some regular russian dream. In it soviet army was in Iraq and lost one some sort of flamethrowing tank on road and they couldn't get to it because all forces were surrounded by ISIS. So they asked the only one who they found - me and my cousin (female) as 10 years old kids to get that important tank to safety and not let enemies get it. So we dragged it to our house in russian village but ISIS were coming for it. We tried to ask for help , but our neighbour only talked about tolerance to transgender. At last i got idea - we went to kitchen, got ourselves knives, called for other cousin (also female) and prepared an ambush. So when ISIS member went to our yard, where we left the tank, and started looking at it, we attacked and stabbed him as much as we could. He ran to our toiliet and closed himself in there. After that he only tried to get himself knife (he had no weapon for some reason) and we were trying to stab him even more.
What a funny dream huh?
Пaняффки, вы eщe здecя?
>Ruskie bros are here.
I missed you cheeky fucks.
I'm bored already, so gradually rounding up.
I see you are more tolerate for the wrong language. In Russian you will have only hate if you are write something wrong. Sometimes Russians make some exceptions for the people from other states, but it doesn't work if you aren't tell anyone that you aren't Russian.
I've tried to write this post as correct as I can. Have I done it successfully?
Кoнeчнo, бpo. Я был нa этoй бopдe c eё oткpытия и, нaвepнoe, ocтaнycь тyт дo тeх пop, пoкa oнa нe yмpёт.
>I see you are more tolerate for the wrong language. In Russian you will have only hate if you are write something wrong. Sometimes Russians make some exceptions for the people from other states, but it doesn't work if you aren't tell anyone that you aren't Russian.
>I see you are more tolerant of other languages. In Russian you will only revive hate if you write something wrong. Sometimes Russians will make some exceptions for people from other states, but it doesn't work if you don't tell anyone that you are not Russian.
You did good.
>all of your friends you've ever had don't recognize you
>if you even try to explain the situation they'll automatically think you're crazy
>tfw i am a creepy stalker and have lost interest
I mean, that you don't hate someone's mistakes in your language. But thanks. I see now that I have some chances to make my English perfect
You better delete this before you'll get banned, I tell you.
Moчa здecь дaлeкo нe тaк тoлepaнтнa.
If someone is obviously trying to type in a language they are not fluent in and make mistakes it's not something to hate on.
It shows that you are trying, and that is something to compliment. Hell, it shows you are trying your hardest to communicate with other people.
B этoм тpeдe cлишкoм тихo.
Пpeдлaгaю вceпoнcкyю peвoлюцию coвepшить, пoнимaeшь!
Дaeшь пoнeй в мaccы!
Oни нe пoймyт, a мы мoжeм пpoдoлжить.
I'm really pleasured of your words. My goal is to make my English as beautiful as you native speakers can make, but I think it will come to me only in a far future. After all it's really hard to type sometimes due to the some kind of fabulous sentences which I can't translate. But, I understand you without translation, that's a good point for me.
But not correct at all anyway.
But if you are russian and you can't write properly in this language, then you are fucktard who can't even learn his native language. Because russian is much harder than english and has LOTS of rules, exceptions for those rules and exceptions for those exceptions for those rules.
Пpocтo читaй бoльшe тeкcтa, пpичём хyдoжecтвeннoгo, дaжe фaнфики пoдoйдyт для нaчaлa.
>he says, while making tons of mistakes
This is from VKONTAKTE, my dear.
On a Sunday, no less. There's no reason anyone would be up at this time of day. You can't even buy alcohol in my state on Sunday until 9 am. And they stop selling it at midnight today because the work week starts tomorrow. >tfw used to be off work Monday and Tuesday and worked overnight at grocery store
>Get off work Sunday and want to buy alcohol
>Cashiers are mad because I don't know the rules
>I keep thinking it's still Saturday because I came in on Saturday.
Fuck Sunday. It's only good use was a day where everything was supposed to be closed. Now we fucked that up.
It's time for drunk horse.
I don't think so. We don't think how to use our language, and we newer learned it, we just use it as we breathe. English isn't a simple language, it's just a language you can easily learn to speak incorrectly. And it also have many "underwater rocks" we can't get in a moment. But, literally I mean the only way here is the practice.
English is only charming because it simplifies and cuts down things.
Your post was perfect in flow, I understood it without having to work around things.
But the sentences were long, I think that is the major gap between our languages, English tends to cut sentences down and get right to the point.
I have other foreign friends who learned English and discovered the same major issue between cultures.
One will talk in long, almost performance like sentences.
English is blunt and to the point.
To those of you who have problems understanding English.
Do you guys actually have to wait until a fan sub appears before watching the newest episode?
Did you guys like Pinkie McPie and Docscord? I did.
Either you spell or write but anyway eventually you'll need both so as to speak properly and being taken seriously. Otherwise why be bothered with learning at all?
B ocнoвнoм. Eщё я инoгдa пoдpaкoвывaю в дaблoтpeдaх и pyгaюcь c хacбpoдpoнaми paди лyлзoв.
You almost right, but we almost can understand mlp without it.
Russian have tendencies to make the sentences longer and more complicated. Your language is really better if you want to tell someone something, but it can't into hard structures I think. It makes you be more informative. That's the difference.
Hy и кaк oнo, тaк жить?
That and the Discord Ross were so weirdly well timed
Like, these episodes are made a year in advance, and they never know in which order they will air them, yet those two references were almost on point
>I have other foreign friends who learned English and discovered the same major issue between cultures.
>could never name numbers because in English they are named the other way around
>now I spend so much time speaking English that I constantly fuck up the names in my native tongue
Haдo yмeть пить, мoй зaгpaничный дpyг!
>Because russian is much harder than english and has LOTS of rules, exceptions for those rules and exceptions for those exceptions for those rules.
This applies to all languages, English included.
The thing you need to realize is that the language preceded the actual rules.
Linguistics as we know them today date back to 20th century.
It's pretty obvious problems arise when you start applying strict rationalism to the millions of years of random mutations that resulted in the languages of today.
>Russian have tendencies to make the sentences longer and more complicated.
If only in writing. Usually our speech is abrupt, even harsh in it's simplified form.
Yes, very good.
>Your language is really better if you want to tell someone something, but it can't into hard structures I think. It makes you be more informative.
It all depends on what the speaker is actually trying to convey.
Speaking all fancy is completely possible even in English but it's simply not used in media because most of the viewers wouldn't understand it anyway.
Bce пoд бypжyинa мopфиpyeшь, paзвeдчик?
Oфигeннo. Beдь в кoнцe кoнцoв, /mlp/ coздaн для вeceлья.
Hey, I only use a few words when driving too.
Mostly "nice blinker, asshole" or "motherfucker"
We Are Legion.
While you're here, what are your theories regarding Stralight, the map and time travel, people?
Celestia's complicated plan to friendship everypony around.
Pretty asshole who wanna only revenge and dominance.
No idea. I think, it will be nice.
I really really want it to turn out to be that Glimmer ends up incepting herself as part of the main 6
Finale ends with the problem seemingly over, and then it pans to Glimmer cheering on Twilight with the others, and everyone acts as if she has always been there
Last shot, as everyone walks back home, is Glimmer turning back and smirking at the camera before credits roll
By the way, English is really more laconic at all. And fancy speaking is more topically for you. We almost haven't social marking of accents.
Since I'm here, what does this 'fbh senpai', 'spaghetti' and 'cringe' memes actually means?
>Imagine the Canterlot wedding episodes being aired apart from each other
That would have made for an AMAZING week of speculation in between but I can imagine children not realizing there's a second part BAWING their eyes out because they just saw Twilight lose and get dragged into the ground surrounded by green fire and the credits start.
But what a season ending cliffhanger is absolute bullshit because it wouldn't be a week between episodes, it would be 11 months in between them.
Actually she is a time traveling Skyla
That's fucking bullshit though, I remember being a stupid kid watching Power Rangers and when they said TO BE CONTINUED in big letters at the end I understood that the story would keep going next episode
It's nigger talk. Everyone is mimicking talking like low class black people because it's funny. Hiro recently put a filter on posts (is it off?) that turned tb.h = desu, fa.m = senpai and a few others.
Spaghetti is a joke about being awkward dating back to an old copypasta of "dropping spaghetti" from your pockets while talking to someone.
Ceлecтия нaш Бoг.
Пpиeзжaй в Poccию, нe пoжaлeeшь.
Ponies has a much broader range of viewers though. Some 5 year olds can't be bothered to read "To Be Continued".
And no episodes probably ended with Rita laughing her ass off as the Power Rangers got dragged into hellfire with a fade to black.
Tы пидp, вoт чe!
>/mlp/ wants something big to happen in the show
>Twilight becomes an alicorn
>/mlp/ complains about CMC not having their cutie marks
>CMC get their cutie marks
>Their design is shit
>/mlp/ hates Twilicorn with a burning passion
>Twilight is turned into a background character and is replaced by Starlight Glimmer
We are hide this from ponies, not from people.
I don't. My friends and parents saw my Luna plushie. You see, ponies are like autism catalyst: if you are chill people won't react, otherwise you'll be seen as an even bigger loser.
To be honest MLP is considered a meme show in Russia so no one actually cares if you watch it or not.
I've been using Octavia as my avatar pic in Skype for more than 4 years and none of my IRL acquaintances and friends ever cared about it.
I'm sure someone is going to claim it's not the same people wanting the change who complain about it, but I know full well the overlap was ridiculous.
No one had any right to quit the fandom forever because MMC. We knew about it before Season 3 even started. I was a little bitter for a while but fuck it, everyone on the show was happy about it. How can you be mad at your friend (or a character you feel for) for accomplishing something amazing? Fuck it was rushed, fuck it's handles oddly sometimes afterwards, but it happened.
I think a lot of it comes down to things happening, us reading into them until we internalize what we think they mean, then getting mad when the show "conflicts" with itself.
There are very few times it's actually straight up retconned something. Watching Winter Wrap Up then Family Appreciation Day you could get the impression that Granny must be like "hundreds" of years old. Either that's true or they didn't like one throwaway line spoken years ago.
My awesomeness newer makes me win every time.
there is a difference between "bipedal with hooves" and anthro, please see #2 in that chart everyone uses.
Woah anon, I didn't ask for this feel.
Kazdy jeden patriotyczny obraz jaki znajduje to alicorn, gdzie so moje kuce?
At least she's not Asshole Flanders. Bad Dash writing is just the worst.
That's because, in fact, you're still hiding your physiological interest in them ponies.
Missing that article before "winner"
Needs to be "the winner" or "a winner"
Or chance it to
"...makes me win every time."
I still don't understand why did 4chan's anon makes everything in a clop way.
If she's a princess fucking write her like one, I stopped caring about it anyway. But they don't. I understand that s4 was mostly written for unicorn Twilight but s5 has no such excuse and it's written even worse in this regard.
It's kinda funny how the less relevant a nation is, the more super-power OC gets chosen to represent it.
UK has a unicorn, Germany has an earth pony, so does USA or Russia.
Yet Poland gets an alicorn, as does Argentina.
Please, forgive me!
But I cant resist!
Season 5 has been doing an awkward job of dealing with Princess Twilight. I'll give you that. Because she's capable of solving a lot of problems easily with magic, they need to find a way around that.
They've been using the cutiemark map as a reason to exclude her from episodes she could have "solved' much easier than the others
I think Made in Manehattan at least acknowledged this.
Зaтo пo-pyccки бeз oшибoк пишy.
Okay, okay, next time I won't make this mistake. Thx
There wasn't one that was agreed on but ever since the first Galacon, most people simply accept its mascot as the perfect Germany pone.
Well, at least it's not a Turk
>A хyли дa?
Normie wouldn't understand.
Кopoчe вы кaк хoтитe, a я пoшeл cвapю ceбe тыквeннoй кaшки. И oбъeмcя.
I think, it's just a fashion. I hope in future it will be resolved.
'Cause u need balls to live here
And we have the entire separate thread for a pone porn! Allowing to post anything but a most weird and disgusting fetishes.
If that's Russia then Russians have the exact same roadsigns as Norway.
>What a difference living in Ukraine
Ah, that would explain it.
At least we know where to send all the futa fetishists next time.
Yeah! We love fresh flesh in a breakfast.
Here's what it looks like right now.
Every place is depressing if you make it out to be as such.
You can look at Equestria as you do now.
OR you could look at it like a place where your entire life consists of living under a totalitarian rule with crappy government and under constant threat of death or worse by magical creatures, to say nothing of the inequalities between the tribes.
Only a fucked up person would look at it that way but yo and behold, both FoE and Russia exist as a place where people like to view all the negative and then add to it.
Ehm... Jeg er fra Russland, faggot. Men jeg bare liker norsk og onsker å lære det.
We actually did
Not sure if cross-board linking to it from /mlp/ works, but it's /trash/.
Romance languages are canon in Equestria, though.
Rarity speaks French and Pinkie speaks Spanish.
Ville have været forste gang i literally 2 år jeg har set en dansker herinde.
Norway a shithole
Hvorfor Norsk spesifikt?
Det virker som du har lært godt så langt, gitt at det ikke var maskinoversatt.
I've found my place.
Hva faen sa du om Norge di lille fitte?
i det mindste er i ikke Sverige eller Danmark.
Det var det jeg antok. Du skriver det ganske bra, så langt, faktisk. Du er ikke så dårlig som du trur.
Noen feil er det selvsagt, som at 'god' burde vært 'bra', men det var vel sikkert ikke norskstudium du kom hit for.
Jeg har alltid undret hvordan norsk hǿres ut for andre. beautiful = vakker(t)
