Touch the Sky

*strokes blanket* I am a good writer. I am a good writer. I am a good writer...


When Discord hears that his botanical creation, poison joke, continues to flourish in the Everfree, he simply cannot resist a good prank. Poison joke in hand, he storms Canterlot Castle.

Needless to say, the princesses are not impressed. But then, neither is Discord, since the joke also has an unexpected effect on him. And none of them know the cure.

Nice one. Haha. I really loved it :twilightsmile:

Hilarious story, brilliant even!

It was a fun read, thanks :pinkiehappy:

That was great, for a one-shot.

Beautiful. Brilliant. Other good words that start with B.

I loved this one shot, and the second fic I've read with Eris. By the way, Discord making Poison Joke is now Head Canon. Thank you.

I always thought it obvious that Discord was responsible for Poison Joke in addition to Timber Wolves.

Needless to say, great one-shot. :pinkiehappy:

the effeckt of the poison joke are not really good in the series every effeckt is something thats goes against with the nature of the special talent or has something to do with their life. personally i would have made it like this

Cadence: She would look like an emo dark highlight in her hair black lipstick etc etc and she couldnt wash it away (Because she is the princess of love and such things)
Luna : She could only whisper extremmly silently (for her canterlot voice)
Celestia: She would looks like a monster (Because she is a benecolvent parental figure)
Discord: Completly symetrical and he couald only do things symetric (because hey he is chaos)
Shining armor: Female

It was funny, though it needs a little bit of work to make it even better particularly in exposition.

this was great! :D thanks.

Dear Princess Celestia
What Cadance said:
1: Celestia! What is the meaning of this?!
2: I can't help it! I say everything backwards for some reason!
3:Discord! What have you done to me?!
4:With all due respect, Celestia, youre crazy for letting him stay here!
5: Wait! If she wrote about her whole life, then this essay must say how she cured the poison joke!

I learned this from one of my books!
Your faithful student,Twilight Sparkle.:twilightsmile:

ahhh, that ending... oh Discord, you just can't help yourself, can you?:twilightsheepish:
I enjoyed reading this story!:pinkiehappy: I look forward to seeing more of your work!


The letter Discord changed was priceless.

What's worse than one Discord?
Nothing really, because if you add more they'll only get on each others nerves.

This was a great read

next story discord and the pool

I demand a squirrel!!!
Wait, no, I meant a sequel!

This was just the right amount of silly and humor. :pinkiehappy: And if I had the will I would draw Celestia with her most excellent moustache and beard. :moustache:

I'm still wondering how she wrote thousands of pages worth of an essay about her entire life extremely detailed and accurate, in 5 seconds.
She must've stopped time and wrote everything in the frozen timeline.

lol, nice.


Other good words that start with B.

I don't know many people who think Bitch is a good word. Although there are a few peeps who are proud to be called one. But not a B word I would personally choose :unsuresweetie:.

Learn it.
Live it.
Love it.
Happy nightmares! Ironically, of course.

And remember,


Check out my:

My Airforce:


[AF comes with complementary Pianos, Safes, and Adorability]

Plus I have several magic cards and artifacts that I'm willing to tap Everfree Forest, and Celestia's Beard for.


Guys cant we all live in peace.

I actually tried to read that for about a second......and for that, you win!

...I think the author's choices work very well? :twilightsheepish:
Cadence is based on love, which is an interpersonal (or interpony...al?) connection. Her speech is impaired, which goes against that very nature.
Luna is the princess of the night above all else -- she's now pink, of all colors, being a complete departure from the former persona.
Celestia the beautiful and motherly, becomes masculine and fatherly.
Discord... Not fully sure. The dude is on top of almost everything, acting cool and in-control, and then he becomes a chick, and all the awkwardness involved with unwanted gender swapping follows.
Shining Armor is a protector, someone intimidating and commanding while in authority -- dude now sounds like a chipmunk.
Not to mention all end up being rather, well, funny. :twilightsmile: ...I think the image of Celestia with a flowing celestial beard-mustache combo is gonna be burned into my mind for awhile.
And just so it's said: I'm not trying to bash you or your suggestions or anything, I just wanted say that the author's choices seem to work well in my own opinion, though I could see many different 'pranks' working.

Luff to all, and awesome story, TtS.
(PS: Emos can be very lovely people)

My gut needs repairing now. I busted it. And, draconwquui stampede ending is best ending. Let's see you gifure this out.

Gifure? Discord must be messing ithw oury ekyoarbd. :facehoof:


Not bad.

I love it! The way Discord knocks on doors is now my headcannon.:rainbowlaugh:

Then Celestia turned around- and Discord saw that she had grown a thick moustache and beard

Sorry, couldn't stop myself.:twilightsheepish:

By Celestia's Mustache! this fic deserves a place in a hall of fame.

I honestly wonder what would happen if somepony was stupid enough to eat Poison Joke.

The letter! Seriously funny beyond measure, laughed my eyes out. Unique perspective on the Reflection Pool & Poison Joke. :rainbowlaugh:

A decent one-shot, if not particularly well-written.

Now at the top of the featured list.

And I thought Cadance was trying to summon the Great Old Ones...


Are you planning to write sequel? I know this is more likely one-shot, but sequel would be really, really hilarious.

I do say i did quite enjoy this!!

Also, i just absolutely LOVE a story that has a R63 Discord in it!! Sadly, there arent enough of them out there.

Anyways, great story!
