A weaver of tales who enjoys a good story. What more is there to say, really?

After getting a taste of his own medicine from Lord Tirek, Discord has decided to take his reformation a bit more seriously. Sure, he has magic and friendship again, but it's clearly not enough to warrant his own throne in Twilight's fancy new castle. In order to earn the coveted throne, he figures that he has to be the best friend he can be.

While scrolling through the Friendship Journal for inspiration and pointers, an epiphany hits him. Since he was reformed, he has never made an honest attempt to make new friends by himself. As the first step on this new journey, he decides to rectify that. And who better to befriend than the other ponies that provided the keys to the chest? It's the perfect plan!

Too bad he doesn't really know what he's doing. Yeah, despite understanding empathy, Discord still has a lot to learn about friendship.

Okay I'll bite. Just what did he end up saying?

4612625 Same thing as in this clip:

I actually went to the wiki and transcribed Seabreeze's little tirade for that line. Because I'm a huge nerd. :derpytongue2:

Albequerque by Weird Al reference!

No I mean what was the translation. I'm not on my computer right now due to monitor issues and won't be till probably tuesday.

A nice little concept for a story, and very well-realized too! Definitely the breath of fresh air I needed after writing and reading so many stories with such heavy themes. Loved it!

I did pick out a few typos, just in case you wanna fix 'em:

a low-handing cloud

Old habits did hard

Seabreeze wave goodbye to his wife as he flew out into the grotto.

I'm on for tea with Fluttershy, anyway\.

Looking forward to your next story! :twilightsmile:

Cheese snickered and rolled his eyes. "Noooo, I want you to cut off all of my legs with a chainsaw."

Hmm, now where have I heard that before? :raritywink:

4612728 Well, there actually isn't an official translation, and there probably never will be (fan-made translations, however, are not out of the question :rainbowwild: ). The whole point of the joke (as portrayed in the episode clip; not this story per se) was that it was DHX's way of getting swearing past the censors. All you really need to know is that it's super offensive. :twilightblush:

4612761 Whoops! Thanks for catching those, mate! :twilightsheepish:

*Grins* Very cute, bravo:pinkiehappy:

I want to know what Discord said! The rest of the story was very good. A perfect writing of Discord's character and mannerisms, and that's coming from a HUGE Discord fan. Very good small story. Keep doing what you're doing if you decide to do more Discord or slice of life/comedy fics.

Cheese snickered and rolled his eyes. "Noooo, I want you to cut off all of my legs with a chainsaw."

*snicker*

4614873 As I explained to Warwolf, the breezie line Discord said doesn't have an official translation. He basically said the same thing Seabreeze said in his little cursing tirade in It Ain't Easy Being Breezies. So, all you need to know is that it's super offensive. :derpytongue2:

Otherwise, I'm glad you enjoyed this little tale. :twilightsmile:

Oh this was brilliant. Fantastic Discord, I always like it when Discord is written as innocently clueless about the finer aspects of interaction. He has malicious interaction down to pat, but he doesn't really get the other ways you can go about it, though he is trying pretty hard here.

Man, my mind seems to be permanently stuck in the gutter. Discord's Breezie language being offensive and blushworthy and that he was trying to ask for nectar just adds up in my mind to something involving the Breezie equivalent to our slang term "honey pot" and some extra vulgarity. Which should be plenty to make people angry and Fluttershy blush.

I'm thinking that not least because Discord unknowingly propositioning first a Breezie and´. then Fluttershy in the most vulgar manner imaginable is just too hilarious.

Great little shot.

4617668 Portraying Discord like this is actually a lot of fun. Again, I did this to show that he can still be a compelling character despite not being a villain anymore. And to that end, it seems I've succeeded. :scootangel:

Great story!

Poor Coco Pommel. She's almost as nervous as Fluttershy, and having Discord come out of nowhere like that...ouch.

I don't blame that Breezie for slamming the door in Discord's face. I mean, who goes up to a complete stranger and starts talking about shaving her mother and...that thing about the donkey and the spatula...I mean really! :pinkiecrazy:

Does not do windows?

I died laughing when I read that part!!! :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Oh, no, no wait, I just got the picture of Discord in a maid's outfit in my mind again. :twilightoops: Oh, god, no.

4612625
My Breezies a little rusty but it had something to do with Twirly's parents. Something about hamsters and elderberries.

This was a great story! I wonder how the whole friendship thing would have worked out for Discord :derpytongue2:

Good story though, loved it :twilightsmile:

I'm not even gonna ask what that translates into.

5322337 As I've explained a few times, the breezie text doesn't have a translation (at least not in canon). It was simply transcribed from Seabreeze's rant in It Ain't Easy Being Breezies, so all you need to know is that it's super offensive. :derpytongue2:

Otherwise, I'm glad you enjoyed this little tale. :twilightsmile:

5322630 probabl includes his grandma and a mannequin hand.

Her boss stroked his chin in thought. "Well, it's not better, but it isn't worse, either. It's just, different. Hmm."
Coco's heart pounded as her boss hemmed and hawed for a while. Finally, he shrugged.
"Meh, I think I can still use this," he said, taking the costume from Coco. "Thanks, Coco."

Nice to see that boss doesn't automatically equal jerk and that he's willing to give it a try.

"Oh, that's why," said Cheese with a chuckle. "Howdy, Discord. I haven't seen you since our Goof-Off in Mustangia. What's up?"

Cheese and Discord have met before. Episode. Make it happen. Don't care how.

Cheese snickered and rolled his eyes. "Noooo, I want you to cut off all of my legs with a chainsaw."

Nice reference to AAAAAAAALBUQUERQUE!

"Well, that happened," he said.

Discord in a nutshell, Silver Shill.

5386635 That quote from Cheese Sandwich is actually a reference to a previous story of mine, Rocky Road Trip. And yes, it would be entertaining to see him and Discord get into some shenanigans together. :rainbowwild:

5386730

Or better, Cheese, Discord AND Pinkie.

This fic was pleasant in a...normal sort of way. It was quite inoffensive, but it didn't exactly wow me either. It felt a bit repetitive towards the end, fairly predictable, which in turn led to a sort of sweet dullness, like a marshmallow.

I'd give this an 8/10. Upvoted.
