Episode 522: What About Discord?
Written by Neal Dusedau
It's probably that Twilight generally doesn't notice her friends' in-jokes that don't involve her, rather than them not happening at all. It'd be sort of strange the latter way! Discord has a way of drawing attention to things she takes for granted, though. Maybe he has some greater plan, maybe not - what matters most to him seems to be the moment to moment irritation he can squeeze from her without really stepping too far over boundaries. All part of dealing with such a chaotic spirit.
Celestia might be pleased.

Guys, I hate to interrupt, but this is very, very relevant.
Guys, sorry to interrupt but
HIRO IN /trash/ discussing clop influx.
GET IN HERE
This question has been asked to him
I HAVE A STRAWPOLL ON IT. GET IN HERE.
Any sane person could tell you the same thing, Anon. The only reason it became a topic is because there was a vagina attached. You don't see anyone talking about all the games that let you beat the shit out of male celebrities.
Is it so fucking hard to have porn on a different site? Christ, it's like you people are so fucking lazy.
anon filly is kissing the other fillies again
This little detail from Twilight at the end makes me smile. I missed it the first time watching the episode and it was nice to see them make up like that. I don't know if it'll stick, but it's nice to see Discord being treated more nicely by all the main 6.
>someone post pictures of prolapsed anuses
>faggots start complain because is not the porn that they want.
Fuck you guys. >>/trash/
He is practicing!
>You will never be wrapped in a cozy ribbon blanket
>You will never be held off the ground by the superior magic and strength of your host
>You will never let stockholm syndrome set in and cuddle into it
Or perhaps he's wondering why someone would rake a leaf before throwing it into a bag
No-one cared who I was until I picked up the rake
Okay, but I won't stop the fillies from trying to kiss me.
I go into my bed room and find this gigantic pony just sitting there in the middle of the floor.
What do I do? Should I call pony control?
that is not a gigantic pony anonymous
unless you are an ant or something
are you an ant?
Whatever, she's just sitting there staring at me. She won't budge at all. I think she thinks this is her new home.
>someone post pictures of prolapsed anuses
well allrighty then!
Your name shall be Pewku.
Thats what you get for leaving the window open
>Have a tuft off with Mane-iac
>She shows off hers which is laughable at best
>You smirk and show off yours
"Well I guess I wi-"
>With an audible *pomf* her tuft expands proud and strong in which the prehensile tuft grabs you and forces you endure the loss of being a tuft warmer
Well, she calmed down a bit. She's letting me have my room back.
Would you please leave me alone?
does that work with older fillies too?
fillies can be placed in any overhead bin for convenient storage
oh my gosh it's the filly daughter i always wanted
yes i shall hug and cuddle and raise you to be a strong independent mare who don't need no stallion
also teach her how to fuck
I WILL LOVE HER AND PET HER AND HOLD HER AND SQUEEZE HER
she is perfection
her fuck lessons shall begin immediately
she's already behind compared to most fillies her age, they've already moved on to advanced topics like double penetration (vag and anus, double vag, and double anus)
Pony technology is cute.
Her talent is pillows. She's cuddly and not for sexual.
What does pony think about fire and fire accessories?
You can become a pony and live in Equestria
You must also choose a new pony name from this list
I want to treat this woma-....mare right.
I've always thought it would be fun to be Fluttershy. I'd have to get rid of most of the animals but I could smooch Dash all day.
>anal beads cutie mark
No wonder Big Mac was hitting on her the whole episode.
i want to spend a quiet, cuddly night with flutters and marble
we can do sex stuff, or not, or just mostly nonsexual quiet activities just being together and not talking and every once in a while some gentle fucking, either as a threesome or as a pair while the other just watches, or gently supports us and quietly encourages and helps us get off, or just two of just fucking in the same room as the third, who is aware of our sex and supportive but not actively participating or watching, just happy to know that it's going on but also happy to just do her own nonsexual thing like reading a book quietly while two people fuck next to her, looking up every once in a while to give us a supportive smile and nod, then going right back to her book, just being a good friend whether she's part of the action or not
and after we're covered in each others' sexual fluids, one of them will make hot chocolate for all of just and we'll just sip it quietly in front of the fire, completely satisfied, touching each other's genitals occasionally but not getting fully aroused, just enjoying the company and sexual openness
Do you think Fluttershy owns any hentai?
she has the largest collection of yuri in equestria
#2 is rainbow dash
I'd rather know more about cute pony and her technology.
Fluttershy is my one and only waifu, tripsanon
Remember, excessive pone cuddling can lead to unpleasant side effects.
Pony already impresses me. I'm just hungry for pony knowledge.
>Fluttershy makes snacks for all three of you between rounds of sex
>You enjoy milk and cookies, just eating quietly together in silence as they wait for your cock to get hard again
you mean treehugger, right
fluttershy doesn't know why, but she just feels so comfortable around her
like she could share anything with her, do anything with her
and she just makes her feel really funny like she wants to
kiss her or maybe do other stuff together
She could breed two ponies at once with those bad boys!
Well OFCOURSE it's awful, why wouldn't it be.
Look at all these horrible things happening to ponies
I wish they weren't rainbow powered, so many funny pictures
She went into her all powerful rainbow mode just to watch some fuckin' TV
Can't we just cum on the pony instead?
DASH RULES EVERYTHING AROUND ME
D.R.E.A.M. GET THE MONEY
DOLLA DOLLA BITS Y'ALL
Oh, the gags were good. I laughed out loud at the fertilizer line and Discord's Bob Ross painting of Twilight. I think there might have been an oblique reference to the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle in there too (Twilight couldn't observe an event without changing its outcome), but the story was weak.
>she leaves for 5 minutes
>comes back covered head to toe in thick semen
TF2 is the perfect time killer, like RTSs, I just can't bother reinstalling 10+gbs everytime I switch PCs
And I dont want to deal with awkward steam friends I havent talked to in years, why the hell do i have to sign in to play a damn game, same with Xbox
>Let's be honest not every show that you enjoy has episodes that are all stallar
True. In fact, with the exception of the Turd Season, MLP:FiM has a better track record than most. In one of his last interviews, Rod Serling said that he thought about a third of the Twilight Zone episodes were good, about a third were so-so and the last third were crap. That's par for the course. MLP:FiM does better than that, which is why the flat ones stick out for me more.
I'd play hats with pony.
>That's the way I like to- !
>...hey wait a minute
I think when there's a balance of not having the best episodes all the time, it helps keeps things fresh
writing good new material all the time must be hard, look at spongebob and the simpsons
It got awfully blue in here, awfully quickly
pretty little pegasus mares
well the show can't last past 2017 because that's when the friendship is magic toyline ends. So I don't think we're going to have spongebob tier seasonal rot. 7 seasons and that's it
only the bluest
i just figured that was a jackoff break that he desperately needed from being so pent up working next to a naked twilight while she bent over and sorted books, wafting her pussy smell right in his face when she swished her tail, completely oblivious to the effect she was having on him
>I don't think we're going to have spongebob tier seasonal rot
No, we'll have it, just it'll be spread over the next series
There's no way Hasbro will give up the brony cash cow
And the fandom's already headed down the shitter as it is
overly energetic horse hugging
What a faggoty way to relax. What fucking adolescent boy wants a fucking manny peddy as a treat? Spike is a pussy. He needs some goddamn male role models in his life. Desperately.
>...that's when the friendship is magic toyline ends.
The Friendship Theme is already worn out anyway. Hasbro would be stupid to let go of the Mane Six, though. Those characters are at their best in episodes that are just random. The show doesn't need a theme beyond, "These ponies are neurotic."
My wild, fever-dream prediction is that Season 6 will begin with a small time-skip of 1-2 years.
This will allow time for the CMC to age up a bit (growth spurts!) and for Starlight to get some basic training as Twilight's pupil out of the way. That way we can jump back in with Twilight finally willing to give Starlight her first solo task/finally being ready to join the 6 in a big adventure.
It was more like, sitting next to him, seeing a bit of his cock slipping out of his sheath, spitting in both my hands, jacking him off, feeling his dick growing in my hands, then waking up. But that is also unf.
that pone is a hugger
I've said this before and I'll probably keep on saying it, but if I was a Big Swingin' Dick at Hasbro, I'd continue the "friendship theme" with the former CMCs and spin the Mane Six off into a show rated at least TV-Y7, and preferably TV-14 (the Simpsons rating, I believe).
And in the meantime I'll have my fun
>The shock value crazy episodes like TftM are some of the worst.
That episode is an example of why they need a more mature rating than TV-Y. It would have been a good episode if Tank had been dying, but his just going into hibernation made Dash look like an overwrought idiot.
Something similar happened to "Spike At Your Service." In the original script, Spike was working for Rarity, which made his behavior explicable. But, it was felt (by whoever feels these things -- suits, undoubtedly) that Rarity came off too bitchy. So, they switched the focus to AJ, and consequently, Spike's behavior made no fucking sense whatsoever.
I guess you could argue that. Personally I was disappointed in the way they wrote him in that one. It would be OOC for Q to genuinely betray the main cast, or to be fooled that way by another antagonist.
>I don't think changing the rating would work the same way
It wouldn't, but I thought it worked in one twenty-two minute episode.
In a TV-Y7 or TV-14 series, they could simply spell out the things they talk all around, like AJ's parents being dead.
I'll start with the pink one then.
If Tank had actually been dying, RD could've gone on a quest to find the antidote (I know Spitfire did that in RI) or anything else instead of attacking a random institution
I didn't think At Your Service was too bad, even though it did seem a little out of character for Spike. I don't think Rarity would naturally reciprocate him going out on a limb for her
>little fillies will never cheer you on as you plow your waifu's ponut
That's what bothered me about that episode. He's a fucking God. He shouldn't have fallen for Tirek's shenanigans. I figure they had to do it though, otherwise the episode would have been over in ten minutes when Discord first confronted Tirek.
>...it did seem a little out of character for Spike
It seemed totally out of character for him. He's always been portrayed as competent, so why did he turn into such an idiotic klutz? And why did he make up the stupid bit about the "Dragon Code" in the first place? He doesn't know ANYTHING about dragons! And why would he even think about leaving Twilight? She's like his mom and his big sister rolled into one.
If he had been doing all that stuff for Rarity, it would have made sense. Just being around her turns him into a klutz. It's not because he's incompetent. It's because he's got a major-league crush on her, but AJ doesn't do that to him.
(Neither does Fluttershy, which I've always found inexplicable. If I was an adolescent dragon who had been gushed over by a creature like that, I would have spent the next three years walking around with my head under her big, fluffy tail.)
yeah one thing that always stood out for me in that episode was his suddenly shitty cooking, when we'd seen him make great cookies and even help bake at Pinkie's party before
I don't think he'd get that desperate for Rarity's attention. He does some embarrassing things around her sometimes, but only because he chooses to be embarrassed. He would rather the feelings be genuine. You see this a little in the Trenderhoof episode, his attitude over everypony fawning over somepony else
I'm with you there. Spike even pretty much shaped right back up after visiting Rarity's. It's pretty overblown.
>I don't think he'd get that desperate for Rarity's attention.
It was the way SayS was originally written, though, and it would have worked better that way than it did with AJ as the straightpony.
my waifu said I'm not allowed to smooch other ponies unless she's there to watch or join
Anon...please...not so har-PHHHBHHBBFFFFBPBTPT
You don't have to. They're grown mares. They figured that out a long time ago.
The Ponies Formerly Known as the CMCs are just figuring it out now. It will all be explained in the episode that shows us how AJ's parents died, Fluttershy got gang-raped as a filly, and Pinkie fried her brains on a truly heroic hallucinogen binge.
She's pretty cool huh?
This was the worst episode is season 5 the episode was the 5 of the main 6 being jerks to twilight the way the epidode was pased it seemed like they where constantly making jokes that left twight out and that was ouviouly bugging her witch makes them all seem stupid, ignorant or jerks or all of the above. Although this episode was not completely awfull most of the discord coas humor that we are used to was toned down because it had to be in refference and the two Chuggaaconroy style bad joke that where in the episode stoped being funny realy fast. The thing about bad puns is that they are funny onece if that. This episode is the worst in season 5 and i was hoping a slice of life was going to be the meadioker worst episode but the is was worse. And the ending when the main 6 did it to discord just made them seem like jerks.(For anyone who is wonder i just didn't think slice of life was good because somone who is not that asociated with the onlne fandom would not know who the cherecter in it where and the didn't realy explain who they where in the show because they had to more on and fit all 6 in the episode)
please stop, anon.
You're making the ponies cry.
A true masterpiece of run-on sentences, all right, but "What About Discord?" really was weak. It felt as if it were written solely for the target audience (six year old girls), but they threw in Bob Ross, Back to the Future, noses in fertilizer and the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle as a nod to the adults who were watching.
Sly references did not redeem it.
>actual show discussion from someone who cared enough to write out an essay
>hurrrrr not your blog
Where are you when the trannies or bis try to validate themselves through transformation fetishposting?
for a general audience it was meadioker put youself in someone who dose not go online or on youtube and look up any mlp video or content they would not understand the episode. I didn't mind the episode i though they could have spent more time on each cherecter but it was a 7/10(for a brony)6/10(for a nonbrony
That makes them bisexual to some extent then because they like dicks but find the male body icky. I've accepted liking dicks a long time ago.
Ponies probably aren't anywhere nearly as sexual as us.
>>actual show discussion from someone who cared enough to write out an essay
Good point. Even with its run-on sentences and misspellings, I like it better than this irrelevant chicks-with-dicks shit. 4chan ought to create a Henry Darger board just for them.
It's literally on topic, and now all the queers and trannies are coming out the woodwork to once again broadcast their chip on their shoulder and make it about them
And then they wonder why people don't like them.
