How He Truly Feels - N7_Spartan117

Discord takes Rarity on a trip through time to show her how Spike truly feels about her.

  • ...


"Oh Spike. How could you ever understand what it like to be in love with somepony only to find out they are in love with somepony else?" asked Rarity through her tears as she cried over her shrine to famous traveling writer Trenderhoof. Hearing those words felt like acid to Spike's heart.

"How.. how could I? Why would she say something like that? I...I thought she knew that I liked her." thought Spike. He was trying to hold back his tears and be mature about the situation, but the pain the words caused was to much for the young dragon. As he watched her cry a tiny flame of anger started to burn inside his heart, he tried to suppress it but the more he tried the bigger the flame grew. "Is that what you think?" asked Spike looking at the floor.

"What?" asked Rarity as wiping the tears from her eyes.

"I said is that what you think. That I don't know what it is like to love somepony and have them not love me back." answered Spike still looking at the floor, showing no emotions when he spoke, Rarity just stood there in silence. "Well you know what? I do know what it feels like, probably better then you." Spike then looked up at Rarity with an expression of both anger and pain on his face.

"What?" asked Rarity looking at Spike whose whole body was starting to shake.

"You heard me, I know what it feels like. I have been living with this feeling for years and every day that pain grows more and more." said Spike, sounding more angry.

"Well why don't you just talk to this pony about how you feel, darling?" asked Rarity, saying this only made Spike more angry. He then started to walk over to the door of her boutique.

"Why should I!? It's not like you ever noticed my feelings before!" yelled Spike before he slammed the door behind him. The boutique quickly fell silent after he stormed out.

"What did he mean I never noticed his feelings?" asked Rarity out loud to herself or so she thought. Then the small glass dome that contained a lock of Trenderhoofs mane began to shake and the mane started to speak.

"Well that took longer than I expected." said the mane, Rarity started looked at the mane strangely. She then came to the conclusion that she was just hearing things, and turned away from the mane and started to walk away from the shrine when the mane spoke again.

"Seriously. I thought the little guy would have blown his top along time ago."

"What in Equestria? Now I know I just heard this thing talk. Ugh Sweetie Belle if this one of your little pranks, it not funny." said Rarity. The lock of mane then began to change shape into the filly in question.

"Yes sis." said the mini Sweetie Belle. Rarity was very confused and was trying to comprehend what was happening. She then realized who it was.

"Discord." said Rarity through her teeth. Discord then began to laugh and change into his normal draconequus self.

"Hahahahahahaha oh this is to good. It really took you this long to see past my disguise and here I was thinking you were smarter than this." said Discord still laughing. Rarity was starting to get irritated with the draconequus that had somehow gotten into her shop.

"Why are you here?" asked Rarity in a irritated tone.

"Well I was in the neighborhood and I thought I would stop by and say hello." answered Discord as he teleported out of the small glass dome and appeared in front of her.

"I appreciate you coming by, but I am very busy. So if you would kindly see yourself out." said Rarity as she opened the door for him to leave.

"Why, so you can continue to wallow in your own self pity?"

"I was doing no such thing." argued Rarity as she tried to look at anything that wasn't the draconequus.

"Really? What do you call this?" asked Discord as he snapped his fingers to summon a screen that showed Rarity sobbing over she shrine, with a timestamp marked five minutes ago.

"You saw all that?" asked Rarity.

"The whole thing. You crying and the dragon's little outburst. I have to say that was quite a show, watching him lose it like that. It was worth me losing fifty bits to Luna over how long till he snapped." said Discord as he and Rarity watched as Spike yield at her on the screen.

"Why should I!? It's not like you ever noticed my feelings before!" yield Spike on the screen.

"They don't make entertainment like that anymore." laughed Discord as the screen disappeared. "Let me guess. You're trying to figure out what he meant."

"How..How did you know that?"

"It's written all over your face." said Discord as he made a mirror appear with a reflection of Rarity with the words "What does he mean I never noticed his feelings?" written on her face.

"So what if I am. What is it to you?" asked Rarity.

"Well what if I told you I can show you what he meant."


"Why time travel of course. I can send us back in time and show you what he means." answered Discord as he played with a tiny blue police box in his hands. Inside the small box could be heard two faint screams crying for him stop shaking the box.

"Oi! Stop shaking my Tardis!" yelled a tiny brown earth pony from inside the police box.

"Make it stop." yelled a gray mare with crossed eyes. Discord then made the box disappear and waited for Rarity answer. Rarity was deep in her thoughts, trying to decide whether she go with him or not.

"Why would you do this?" asked Rarity. Much like her, most ponies were still cautions to trust him after the whole Tirek incident.

"I just want to help a friend." answered Discord with a grin on his face.

"What do you get out of this?"

"Why do you think I would get something for doing this?"

"What do you get out of this?" asked Rarity again.

"I promised the princesses that would help them with their jobs, in penance for betraying them." confessed Discord with a tone of sadness in his voice.

"While I will commend you for trying to rebuild their trust. I on the other hoof still do not trust you, so why should I trust you? How do I know this is not some type of sick game of yours?"

"You have no reason to trust me, but I promise you that is no game. I Pinkie promise" said Discord as he did the motions for the promise.

"NEVER BREAK A PINKIE PROMISE!!!!" yelled Pinkie Pie in the distance.

"Ok, but how do you plan to take me back in time?" asked Rarity

"With magic of course. I will send us back like I did with Twilight when I tried to take over Equestria the last time."

"And how do you know where to go?"

"Oh I have a list." answered Discord as a scroll appeared. He then unrolled the scroll causing the bottom of it to fall to the floor and roll out of the boutique.

"Oh my. Wherever did you get this list?" asked Rarity as she looked at part of the list that was on the floor.

"Luna gave it to me." answered Discord as he rolled the scroll back up. "So, are you ready to go?" Rarity looked at his extended lions paw, trying decide if she should go or not. She then started to remember the last words her Spikey-wikey said.

"Why should I!? It's not like you ever noticed my feelings before!"

"Ready." She then put her hoof in Discords paw. As soon as she did he cast his spell and started to send them back in time.
