Discord waits alone and forgotten in the Canterlot gardens, brooding over his hatred for the princess and wondering who truly was the monster between them. But an unlikely visit one night changes him and his feelings for Celestia...
This dynamic between Discord and Celestia interests me greatly. I usually write it as hatred, but it works both ways. Well done.
That...was sad. And depressing. But, in thus being sad and depressing, it was also really lovely. Short and simple; too bad it says it's complete. Personally, I would love to see more. Discord and Celestia always intrigue me, since the two seemed to have SOME kind of hidden connection that was never focused on. This made me want to cry; how can you NOT feel sorry for Discord? The horrified way he looked when he was imprisoned...the fact that he showed anger when he called out Celestia and said that "he didn't put ponies into stone" or whatever he said...the way that he wasn't really "evil" as more as he was just a guy who loved to have extreme fun...it's just so sad.
beautifully written.... we need a decent discord celstia shipping thats a few chapters long
THANKS FOR FUCKING UP MY NIGHT! And right before I sleep as well... good fucking job on the story by the way, really sad and depressing and it almost made me shed a manly tear.....FUCK.....Discord is so misunderstood.
oh discord...so misunderstood.
I NEED A SEQUEL FOR THIS!! one where discord is freed again. maybe like...after a hundred years or whatever. and then he and celest form..discolestia!!!
or another idea is that he's freed the moment he stops hating and shit and then he and celestia get together and it freaks everypony out
Poor discord... I can partially relate with his desire for fun, regardless of what others thought.
Please wright another chapter!!!!
I agree with hiy:
we need a sequel some time in the distant future where he escapes.
I humbly request a sequel!
sequels are a good thing. i think you should do one
I love this pairing!
Sequel, please. This deserves one.
There better be more of this or I will kill you and then bring you back 2 life so I can kill you again!
please keep up the awesome work and do please make more
Hm...Short and sweet.
It seems a bit unlikely that Discord would have never realized that Celestia might feel anything but hate for him. I guess I could imagine it, if they never really met before they were banished. I was under the impression they had, though, and if they did, Discord changing his mind so suddenly or being so surprised doesn't make much sense.
WOW, I was not expecting this much popularity
I thank all of you who read and commented on it, and about a sequel....
I wasn't originally planing it, but I'm starting to think I don't have a choice...
I'll get one out as early as possible, so keep on the watch
this totally puts the bad characters into a good light, it was sad, and yet it was awesome, thank you for writing this :3
And now I'm sad face all over. This was amazing I can't for a sequel :D
O.O..........*stands up and starts to clap* this is awesome , amazing , well written, buitefuly described..... i found it amazing bravo for my good sir bravo for u ........... u better make a seqel or me and meh army *waves hands and armys of elites humans demions magicians and dwarfs* will acend upon u
i relay enjoyed reading this, good story and writing, to bad it was only a short story
hope you make a sequel, you have alto to work whit and many directions you can go in.
I who'd easily read it the second it came out´
fantastically written and a brilliant portrayal of my favorite villain.
BRAVO GOOD SIR!
(also please write a chapter two. the ending seems to have the faintest hint of a clifhanger on it for you)
I may not have read the whole thing yet, but DANG THIS IS SOME GOOD STUFF!
THIS IS really good, I liked it
Don't write a sequel!
'Cuz then I might miss it.
Another chapter will do just fine!
Ya know, that does sound like a much better idea. With the amount of people who have tracked this, might as well.
Changing status to incomplete for now.
This was very...well, interesting to say the least. If you continue it, I'd definitely consider reading.
Just a question, is this based off of the story "Discordantly"? There are some similar details shared in both, and just kind of made me wonder.
To those who haven't seen it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9o45SCnPXmY&list=FL2zImGdQH58wh6k6VCAhKyw&index=9&feature=plpp_video
I absolutely recommend that you do.
Other than that, absolutely amazing!
Yes, this was inspired by "Discordantly" I love that story, one of the best DiscordXCelestia stories out there.
If you do make a sequel please don't make it like a future fic, I couldn't bear the though knowing that none of the Mane 6 or anyone else we know for that matter aren't alive anymore (Except Celestia, Luna, and Discord obviously)
Other then that I loved this story.
>>7802778027 You better hope to Celestia that your sequel does well dude.
Otherwise.... I think some bronies here will attempt to go Cupcakes on you...
Or worse. Then again, nobody knows where you live, so you should be safe.
: continue dood! it so greaT!
I've seen a lot of sad stuff, and it takes a lot to actually move me.
You have done that. I humbly yet eagerly wait for the next chapter.
More, for the love of all that is good in this world, more.
The elements setting him free?
*sobs self to sleep*
Aw man. I wanted to write a quasi-shipfic between Celestia and Discord, but you beat me to it.
You won't get upset when I finally got around to writing that, would you?
BETS OF THE BEST!
I like is story, tracking it. I like how it is based on "Discordantly". However i found out one mistake, in this line.
"“Discord…” The white Alicorn walked up to him, looking his hideous form up and down."
I think you meant "looking at his hideous form" Otherwise it is great!
Interesting. Tracked and left unrated for now.
You will recieve an arrow to the knee if I don't see a second chapter soon.
You've taken a strange approach to the two characters and I really like it.Keep up the good work!
Why would I? The more CelestiaXDiscord fics out there the better! Spread the love!
Annnnd I read this JUST before reading the "Discorded ponies" series, Discord breaking Trixie and the horrifying epilogue included.
Wow. Its kind of funny that Pinkie in the follow-up series "Reharmonized" by the same author whines about the prevalence of "Cupcakes" on the web. She had least has a reputation as a round, sensitive character in the show to shield her from that trouble.
Discord doesn't have any wide-spread defenses against that story....
I now support DisLestia.
No, the way he had it was perfectly fine. See, this is something you learn about writing very quickly if you want to succeed. You have to learn how writing works, and how to exploit grammar. The way he wrote it was completely correct.
In my head I can see a possible second chapter that I would do, but who knows, you will most likely do something completely different, but just as great.
Absolutely amazing chapter. I was hoping that Discord would've been set free on accident. A chance to redeem yourself doesn't happen often!
Your writing technique and story telling is just amazing. I only have one thing to say. You better keep going with this!
*the box pooped open* i giggled
*clap...clap, clapity clapapapapa.* Chears, whohoo! Best fucking thing ever!
Short and sweet, I like that.
This is a very nice story <3
The first time i went "D'aaw". I didn't even know i could do that! DUDE I LOVE YOU! (A small possibility of homo)
I think you have a little room to squeeze one last chapter out.
Addressing things like Luna and the Mane 6.
awww, that was
Confound these ponies! They drive me to write
But really, I may write another chapter. It's been fun writing this so far, so I'll most likely continue.
manly tears where shed
THEN SHE WAS PREGNANT!
Well this was disappointing , Interesting story though. 4 stars for effort
This is the kind of story I really love.
God of Chaos + Trollestia. Dear Luna, we are doomed....
"Maybe, just maybe, they could be together." I like the way you enforced that.
OK not going to lie, when I saw you added the new chapter...........I almost shouted "FUCK YES!!!", thankfully I kept it in my head.......I can't wait to read it I really loved the first.
I sqeed when I saw this post. I started throwing money at the screen when I was done reading it.
Amazing story. 5 stars.
moar!! i wanna see everypony's reaction to this!!!
Well chaos does need order to survive and vice versa...
You deserve a 5/5 from me
Awesome work my good sir
As Brody once said, "GENIUS! YOUR A FREAKING GENIUS!"
... Okay, I can tell already, that this is going to be good. Not 5 paragraphs into it yet, and I'm reading it as if it's Q talking, using his inflections and everything! XD (Also, the 'past' right at the beginning? Should be passed. Just trying to help!^^)
*Goes back to reading*
~ Moonstone, Minstrel of Equestria
Nice... And that's all I've got ta say 'bout that...
O.O.....................i...well......ill be damned............now if u will excuse me im going to right a fanfiction about me losing my mind and trying to kill CELESTIA, ALL THE GRIFFONS,LUNA, DISCORD, GODS OF DEATH LIFE AND DREAMS, DOCTER WHOOVES AND THE ELEMENTS OF HARMONY.....i just relized i have no way of posting it if i make it......all well il still make it............breif summary:CELESTIAS ANCESTER'S ROYAL GAURDS ROYAL SCREW UP IMPRISON ME AND I GO BESERK.....OH YA AND OTHER SHIT HAPPENS TOO
Bravo, 90 thumbs up
>>7745877458 Fuck fuckity fuck fuck fuck. Has it been said enough?
Simply beautiful. Lunasty must pay however, this all was her fault. Your description on discords feelings made me a genuine sad. Spot on good mate, spot on.
Then they lived happily ever after.
The way you portrayed Luna and Celestia in the flashback seemed pretty out of character for the two of them. Have you ever thought about revisiting this story?
Well think about it, this is a THOUSAND years before the Mane 6. People change with time.
Also remember this is before they become the rulers of the land, so it's not like their princess's.
can someone please hug me........ i need one
ive re-read it and i still feel like curling up in a ball dying, espically the part on discords rejection
Hmmm... I think I mite write Discord a bit differently in the next chapter of my story. Not really different, but not as evil as I was going to go for. Awesome story by the way, Off to the sequel!
Well I mean of course we can assume it's taken Celestia and her sister hundreds of years to accumulate their current understanding, wisdom, manners, etc.
I dunno, I suppose it's just me.
I LOVE THIS STORY SO MUCH.
Is this based on a particular fanart? Because it certainly reminds me of one- especially with the flowers.
Yes, this was heavily inspired by the amazingly awesome "Discordantly" written by CrappyUnicorn.
There's a youtube video with music, it's makes it even more amazing. It can be found here, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9r_R1e3R9E
......Sorry I doubted you, Legacy55. I thought that it was just the first chapter.
'Tis very good.
Now I'm sure I'll enjoy the sequel much more.
Oh man, that just describes how I feel for this story.
... I need my insunlin.
Hmm, while I'm not going to flat-out demand a sequel, it wouldn't hurt to make one anyways. Don't worry, these are tears of joy.
Edit: Just noticed you made it. I'm so happy. :D
this is great. amazing, even.
but you have an inconsistancy (sorry for pointing this out, but i'm kinda OCD). you said that discord changed AFTER what celestia did, and that luna became nightmare moon soon after. well in th' show, discord was defeated BEFORE luna became nightmare moon, as both sisters fought aginst him.
again, terribly sorry for pointing this out, but i couldn't stand it.
Damn this was beyond awesome, it was beautiful!
YES!!! Finally somebody labels discord as misunderstood, not evil.
I think Discord deserves a special place in all our hearts
A fantastic story, that could turn make a great sequal where Discord drives for acceptance of the rest of the land of Equestria! I really felt sad for Discord and angry towards Celestia at moments.
I was thinking about writing something like that, but now that I know about this, it's no longer needed.
This is beautiful.
Amazing!!! I love the relationship you have created between the two!!!
Can't wait for the next chapter -sniff-
