Now that Discord's reformed and friends with a princess and her entourage, he's decided it's time to assimilate himself into pony culture. With Nightmare Night coming up, Discord decides to get into the spirit of things by opening a costume shop in Ponyville. His amazing costumes soon become the talk of the town, and Nightmare Night fever is stronger than ever...

...but is Discord about to play the ultimate Nightmare Night prank on an unsuspecting Ponyville?

I see potential... Can't wait to find out how this goes.


Nightmare Night book... must read... NOW TO MAKE A NEW SHELF JUST FOR NMN BOOKS!

Yay! I love this, can't wait to read what happens next! :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

Fluttershy's eyes widened as she rapidly began changing into a series of random and bizarre things: a vampony, a giant bee, Saddle Rager, a Breezie, a butterfly, a crystal pony, and a strange two-legged creature in a green skirt, white shirt, and boots.

No tree? Eh...too easy.

I think this one will be interesting.

Well...this could be fun.

Still waiting on a reply to the comment I made on the related blog post, though.

I await the impending update!!!! :pinkiecrazy:

I suspect that I know Discord's ulterior motive here, but I'm not going to say anything. Let's see if I get it right...

Also, I'm surprised that Luna needs a Nightmare Moon costume. I thought she just shapeshifted.

(Also also, two stories updating daily, and another one weekly? I admire your work ethic, Moth, but I don't envy you in the slightest.)

Looking forward to more.

5170068 I've written more in the last two weeks than I wrote during all of 2012. :derpyderp1: At least this one's only a short run of 11 chapters. The secret is I've padded out a week's worth of Persona EG chapters, and I write .5 to 1.5 chapters of Persona EG a day, then work on this and Tomodachi. I've got...*checks* I'm good until Saturday on this one before I run out of material, which gives me a good lead-out to actually finish writing this in time. :twilightsheepish:

On the Luna thing: Yes, she CAN shapeshift into Nightmare Moon, but I figure at some point she actually had a costume made because it's "more fun".

"You can trust me when I say no harm will come to anypony."

I'm assuming Discord only means no physical harm. I can only wonder at what mental scars might potentially occur... :twilightoops::derpyderp2::pinkiecrazy::applejackconfused:

Very good discord. No longer shall the ponyvilliabs have to go and have makeshift costumes bought from the store at red icloud prices! Unique costumes for all !

Oh I am looking forward to this! :pinkiehappy:

Also Luna and Tibbles are so adorable! :yay:

:facehoof: he is just going to make everyone turn into their customes, isn't he?
:twilightsmile: don't worry if it is, but everyone has done that. Though it would be nice if you did something new, unexpected, and chaotic

"You can trust me when I say no harm will come to anypony."

And loophole confirmed.

Well, I know this is not ending well. Free will is probably the scariest power Discord has until Fluttershy steps in. Either way, on with the show, as they say!

Will their be any evil costumes? Please no evil costumes. If that's the plot fine, but still, cliche maybe?:facehoof:

Why am I picturing a Happy Mask Salesman/Majora's Mask reference coming soon? :derpyderp1:

"You've suffered a terrible fate, haven't you? :trollestia:

I want to trust him, but this is Discord we're talking about here. I feel so conflicted. :twilightoops:

Was that...:pinkiegasp:... A WILLY WONKA REFERENCE!!!:raritystarry: mustache for you!:moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

5172169 I'm sorry, have you seen the sincerity in him during the last episode of season four, in which Tirek tricked Discord into helping him, and ultimately betraying Discord? Maybe you haven't... You must go do it now.

I'm calling he pulls a Halloween town, and says, "Hey, I said it wouldn't hurt anyPONY, and last I checked, those aren't ponies!!!"

Very good, it shall be te most chaotic nightmare night ever! And I think I can guess what it is but I don't wan to spoil it.

This is tres, tres grand. Trixie needs to become his sales associate.
But this is acually the second story today I've seen involving Discord and costumes. And it's just as good!

"Come, sister! The revelry of shopping calls to me!"

That's a good way to end a chapter :rainbowlaugh:

Can't wait for the next one! Keep up the good work. :pinkiesmile:

"Well, you girls have fun...Ah'm gonna go, uh...look in that other section." She trotted off, glancing around warily before ducking into the Something Sexy section.

Oh....my. :applejackconfused: I had no idea applejack cared about....that stuff.:derpyderp2::derpyderp2::derpyderp2:

Heh. I like how you have Applejack brush off the Power Ponies costumes and then have Rainbow Dash get excited for the Silver Surfer Soarer costume. :rainbowlaugh:

Excellently chaotic. All I can do is demand more.

Oh boy. I can just see Discord smirking on the inside. Unless the story's a massive double bluff and he really, genuinely just wants to have fun...

We'll see.

In any case, looking forward to more, though I'm not sure how you'll extend this until Halloween. Everypony seems to have already made their selections.

5174213 Tomorrow you'll begin to understand WHY there are eleven chapters to this story. :trollestia:

so they are going to turn into their costumes?

So is this going to be an MLP version of The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror XVI: I've Grown a Costume on Your Face which is also a parody of Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge?

5174386 Probably not, since I don't get that reference. :derpytongue2:

Can hardly wait to see what everyone dresses up as.

Though what I know from what you said about the story...and AJ looking in "Something Sexy"...oh boy.:pinkiegasp::pinkiehappy:

Could be, but I'm positive he's up to something.

I'm going to guess that these "costumes" are a bit more like transformations, hopefully temporary ones...


he's going to turn everyone into what they dress as isn't he?

My guess is that they will end up changing into whatever they picked until they say "Discord" three times backwards while hopping up and down on one leg and brushing their teeth.

I have a feeling that those costumes could end up being more than just costumes.

If you've watched the halloween themed Jimmy Neutron episodes, you'll know what I mean.

Hmmm three d's in succession? Discord is the king of chaos... I know King DeDeDe right?

OOOH BOY. I love this story so much already after only two chapters. The idea that Discord is trying to fit in and is actually doing it well? It makes me wish that it was actually some outside force and not Discord himself that would cause chaos on Nightmare Night, for the sole purpose of not wanting him to get all that trust for him taken away by the end of this story, especially with how much its being shown that they're trusting him after the Tirek incident. But keep up the good work, this is amazing!

Oh god of chaos what are you up to now. This story is hilarious. I wish I could write this well.
Where AJ went into was just too funny.:rainbowlaugh:

This is gonna be good!:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy: I can't wait to see what chaos is wreaked by Discord. Or somepony else wreaks on Discord.:trollestia:

Eh, considering how sincere he seemed after the Tirek incident, I can probably see it going like this: Discord wreaks havoc in some way, everypony's mad at first, but then they all realize how much fun they had. That's my opinion on it, anyway...

I haven't read this yet, but I can totally see Discord selling costumes and then when they are worn on Nightmare Night everyone turning into whatever their costume is....

I have a strong suspicion how this is all going to turn out, but I'm sure I'll enjoy it anyway. I always enjoyed the 'wacky hijinks with costumes' kind of stories.

Time to pull out the industrial popcorn maker and butter melter, cause this is going to be fun to watch.

I think that exactly that will happen. This is Discord after all.

and a strange two-legged creature in a green skirt, white shirt, and boots.


Man, as soon as Discord went into his salesman spiel, I couldn't stop reading his voice as Bartley from Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance. I just couldn't shake it.

Also, nice work on Hawkershy!
