This story is a sequel to What Goes Around...


Furious about Silver Spoon's new-found support for the Cutie Mark Crusaders, Diamond Tiara goes out for a walk, hoping to calm down. During her outing, she is visited by Discord, who shows the filly what Ponyville would be like without her.

This story has a sequel:
Diamond Tiara is Special

The title reminds me of "A Day Without Mexicans". This better be good.

Maybe I should've called it "It's A Wonderful Diamond"...

Now that I've read this (my first comment was before reading the story), I'm impressed. This deserves a "thumbs up". Keep up with the good work.

Thank you. Be sure to check out "What Goes Around".

About my 'before comment', the movie is a good one. It takes in account what happens throughout California if there were no Mexicans. One of the best examples was the Dodgers team.

I'll look into it.

Even Diamond Tiara knows not to break a Pinkie Promise.:pinkiecrazy:
She has to be good.:pinkiehappy:

You know what this made me do?

Hate Discord. It doesn't matter whether you exist, what a heartwarming message. He should erase himself from existence next. And that makes Diamond change her ways? Knowing everything is completely futile? That doesn't sound very convincing.

I'm afraid I can't vote either way here, so I'll leave it as is.

I wish I'd learned about the birds and the bees from Discord.

That was pretty rushed. I can't say it was bad, though, so I won't give it an upvote or a downvote.

Thank you for your input. I'm thinking about expanding, or maybe rewriting this and its predecessor at some point.

5063414 Wouldn't be a bad thing ... I enjoyed it, but it could've used a few more scenes to really hammer it home. Still, it was a good read, and one of the more innovative takes on "It's a Wonderful Life" I've seen.

I'll get to it sometime after I complete DTIS. I'm not sure when though, I have a lot to do.

I'm glad you liked it.

5116563 Cool ... no need to rush.

If Diamond Tiara didn't exist...

Poor Dia...

I do not like this story. I'm sorry. I just don't.

Sorry. I shouldn't have said that....

Bye...

Exactly! I have slightly lost hope in Discord now. He just "discorded" another pony.

Cue sad violin music...

actually if he really showed her a Ponyville without her, the CMC wouldnt exist. The ponies would exist but the club would have never come to be.

Applebloom wouldnt have become obsessed, she wouldn't have gone to Rainbow Dash (who forever damned them with her tactics of try as many things as you can just once, without research or practice) and it wouldn't have been at Diamond Tiara's cuticnera that they meet. They came together solely in defense of Applebloom.

The CMC would have to be formed in a different way and possibly better planned out. (WITHOUT Rainbow Dash's influence.):facehoof:

also it's canon that Silver Spoon got her mark first. "Silver Spoon got hers, I just got mine." I believe were Diamond's exact words.

also Applebloom wouldn't have abandoned Twist. Sooo yeeah.. sadly not allot of arguments to be grateful Diamond exists. :unsuresweetie:

Good story! I really liked this one. :twilightsmile:

actually if he really showed her a Ponyville without her, the CMC wouldnt exist. The ponies would exist but the club would have never come to be.

That doesn't make any sense to me. Whether Diamond Tiara existed or not the CMC not having cutie marks would not have changed, they'd still not have them.

Applebloom wouldnt have become obsessed, she wouldn't have gone to Rainbow Dash (who forever damned them with her tactics of try as many things as you can just once, without research or practice) and it wouldn't have been at Diamond Tiara's cuticnera that they meet. They came together solely in defense of Applebloom.

Actually, it's not Apple Bloom who's obsessed but scootaloo. This is amplified by her being a pegasus with abnormally small and undeveloped wings with which she cannot fly so, with that said, you can see double root of her obsession: lack of cutie mark, lack of useable wings.

The CMC would have to be formed in a different way and possibly better planned out. (WITHOUT Rainbow Dash's influence.)

Now you're contradicting yourself. First you said the CMC wouldn't exist and now you're saying they'd have to be formed in a different way? And how in the world would Rainbow Dash not still be a part of Scootaloo's life? I don't see their relationship as being either non-existant or changing since that relationship stands independently from Scootaloos involvement in he CMC.

also it's canon that Silver Spoon got her mark first. "Silver Spoon got hers, I just got mine." I believe were Diamond's exact words.

What season/episode is that shown in?

also Applebloom wouldn't have abandoned Twist. Sooo yeeah.. sadly not allot of arguments to be grateful Diamond exists. :unsuresweetie:

As I recall Applebloom didn't abandon Twist but that Twist left the CMC because she'd gotten her cutie mark the day she was making candy canes at the candy factory. Well, the one argument that I can present in favor of Diamond Tiara's existance is that the show, itself, would be a lot less interesting without her.

You're welcome. :twilightsmile:

Just a suggestion but, if you should decide to try a story like this, again, why not try it using the Rashomon Effect? In other words, tell the story from the perspective of several characters who conflict and even contradict each other? That's always a nice approach. Perhaps, from Discord, Celestia and Luna's perspective. Since they're immortals I suspect that they may not be subject to the same effects of time changes and shifts mere mortals would be. It's just a thought.

I just might do that. Thanks for the suggestion.

You're welcome. I'm glad to be of help. :twilightsmile:

Don't buck with Fluttershy. Discord will get you!
and in the end, it's true, life WILL go on without DT. The only people her existence is truly special to, is truly needed by, is her parents. That alone is important.

When Discord showed up, I was like "Oh crap, Diamond hurt Fluttershy's feelings and she's gonna get it...Run!"
