Discord is reformed and now on the path towards becoming a productive member of society. To help him stay on the straight and narrow, Fluttershy begins to write letters to him, with the two quickly becoming pen pals. With their sharing of letters, Fluttershy begins to learn more about the conundrum known as Discord, while Discord learns what it truly means to be a friend.

Collaboration with the totally awesome Flint Sparks! If you enjoyed the story, then definitely check this guy out!

You must never stop this

Fashion Magazines I love this story!

I like it, it sounds pretty cool. Your depiction of Discord is really well done.

Ahh, another good story that will never be finished :)

Yes, yes. :moustache:

Knew you'd take something from this episode and turn it into a great story. :twilightsmile:

And it's a collab! :rainbowkiss:

“Mail?” Discord muttered, flopping down on the ground, still in his one-dimensional state.

Unless he compressed himself into a line, he's 2-D.

Strange enough, I don’t remember writing any letters before that at all.

Hmm... Insignificant throwaway line, or hint at something deeper? :trixieshiftright:

In any case, looking forward to more. Especially if best pony continues to make her signature landings. :derpytongue2:


I love it!!! :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:
Please add this story to the MLP Fan Club!! My computer is derping and i can't copy paste. :fluttercry: But please try to add it here!

Not much of a FlutterCord shipper, but this has got me really interested. Do go on.

Sweet and funny! I can imagine Celestia's face when Discord asked her for fashion magazines:trollestia:

Nicely done! Angel, you had best not mess this up; Discord and Fluttershy are far too cute as a couple for there to be any interference.

This... this is good.
just a note, (and i hate to point this out) but

Spitting out his mail in his paw, his soar mood took a turn for excitement when he saw who the letter is from.

is that supposed to be "sour?" :rainbowhuh:

Anyway, I like what you two have done here, splitting up the letters so that it actually feels like conversation, and it's coming from two different minds. I'd actually rather NOT have this turn out to be ship fic, but it's your guys' story. Just saying, I think it'll make a better story if they stay "penpals"

Really, really, REALLY good penpals :pinkiehappy:

this story looks interesting. How would the letters between Fluttershy and Discord go?
Who wrote this one? RainbowBob?!
*double checks rating*
RainbowBob wrote something for everyone? What madness is this?
Oh, FlintSparks collabed this? I know I've seen that name before.
*quick research break*
Ah yes, I knew I've seen your name strewn about here and there, btw I quite enjoyed 'Red Hearts and Ditzy Eyes'.
Okay... well I guess I have no reason to not read this

Later. preferably when I'm not getting ready for bed. :trollestia:
Wait a tic... this is rainbow Bob's 69th story... and no clop. Internet you have the queerest sense of humor.

Instant fav! I'm currently on a Discord fic binge.

That's how we did it. :pinkiehappy: I write Fluttershy, he writes Discord. It's like we're writing letters to each other! :twilightsmile:

...because we kinda are, I guess?

Oh thank you! :rainbowkiss: Redheart is a pretty horse.

It's... kinda weird, actually. Lol, I am as well and am planning to write one XD

You took the best idea, decided to be best author by writing it, and then picked the best possible other author ever to write it with.

This is the product of good decisions. Rainbob Awesomeness.

Also, I had this same concept (well, almost same) set out with two other characters. And now it's going to look like I copied you two :derpytongue2:

It's a ship fic as well :pinkiegasp:

This amuses me greatly! Proceed with more, for you have my blessing.

i really like it keep on writing your good at what you do:twilightsmile:

Holy crap, I find Fluttercord extremely adorable! So I'm really looking forward to this. Haha, I love it. You better update this one soon!

Wow, I am truly looking forward to the continuation of this story as well as for many more penpal letters between Discord and Fluttershy to come. :heart:
I don't fav stories very often, but I defiantly want to keep a close eye on this one. I hope you both have as much fun writing this story as I am reading it.

....wat. lol, nice letters

The Lemon Tree Treaty.

Oh dear god...

~Skeeter The Lurker

This story is just beautiful! :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:
I loved! :raritystarry:
Dying of curiosity! :fluttershbad:

Is there something I'm missing here?

Many parts of Discord's body were warmed on this day. And also, Cinnamon Toast Crunch is damn good! Do not question us.

AWESOME!!! can't wait for more

First chapter ended with a Fluttershy letter. This one begins with a Fluttershy letter. Do we miss a Discord letter in here somewhere?

Whoops, sorry, there was bit trouble uploading the doc, fixe snow though. :twilightblush:

You’re a strong, independent yellow pegasus living the way you want! who don't need no man!
Everybody's a lesbian, doncha know?
I once ate Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I woke up, the bowl empty, and my head floating in a small puddle of drool. I still don't know why kids love the taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, dammit.


How could you miss the Lemon Tree Treaty!? It was so bold, descriptive, captivating and amazing. Having Angel clash against Discord!! Bunny vs draconequus! All the carrots and fish slapping, cabbage throwing and exploding yogurt mines!!

By all that was written there was nothing better or bloodier then the battle that lead up to that treaty. The treaty Fluttershy herself took up as negotiator to make peace between the two forces of chaos.

Oh right. I remember reading about it in the newspaper. Shame I missed it, I was in Trottingham at the time.

Damn it, now you got me in the mood for Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Thank God I have some with me. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go eat some cereal . . . at night.

Ha! I love your Discord writing style! So strategically chaotic!

Lol neext thing that Angel will become William Wallace XD

Well, this is becoming ever more adorable, intriguing, and hilarious. Also:

Sure, the marks on their flanks were there for a reason...

Now that's interesting. The part of me that just loves to make mountains out of molehills can't help but latch onto that statement. Cutie marks originally being a form of mating display that only later developed into personalized iconography? Very cool idea. Even if it wasn't what you were actually going for. If the intent of the show's writers can't stop us, I see no reason why those of fellow authors should.

But I ramble. Eagerly looking forward to more, especially as the draconequine/lapine tensions rise to a boil, are allowed to simmer for fifteen to twenty minutes, and then we add the pasta!

...yes. Perfect.

I can't stop giggling at how cute this is! D'awwws all around. :heart::heart: Plus, Discord's letters are a riot, and under the surface, very sweet and shows he cares. And Fluttershy isn't afraid to tell him her inner thoughts (though if it was face to face, it'd probably be a bit different), because he is trustworthy enough to be told stuff she hasn't even told her pony friends, ones she's known for quite a while. Really adds to his character. Though that end implies that, well... this should be interesting.

P.S., Discord, we love Cinammon Toast Crunch because it's the best cereal, bro!

Urgh, cinammon toast crunch. Notorious for causing little kids to bleed to death from the roofs of their mouths. :pinkiesick:
