Mr. Disc - CrackedInkWell

Mr. Disc, the rehired art teacher for Canterlot High had an argument with a student when he get's pushed into the portal and into Equestria. Dazed and completely confused, he tries to figure out why every living things is afraid of him.

(Overseeing the Damage: According to Princess Celestia)

I was flying into Ponyville with my Pegasi guards to give this other Discord the good news. That Twilight has indeed fixed the mirror, so he can now be able to go back home. But as we flew in, I couldn’t help but notice a line of destruction that starts from the schoolhouse leading into town. There were roads of soap, boulders that blocked the road and even sharpen candy canes that lay in their way. We all suspected the worst.

As it turns out, the local spa was nearly overgrown with plant-like tentacles, a sweet shop that belongs to Bon-Bon had a solid gray wall that had trapped the owner of that said shop. All along the trail of mischief, I found that a pony’s forehooves were glued together, a group of mares was trapped in a cage entirely made out of peppermint sticks, and I’ve run into a pony who seemed to be made out of diamond but thankfully was alive.

My guards and I followed the trail of chaos until we found who is at the end of the trail. It was Mr. Disc alright with the golden band still attached to his tail. But what none of us had expected was that he was crying his eyes out, and Applejack’s little sister, Applebloom was there trying to comfort him.

I approached them, “Mr. Disc, are you quite alright?” I asked. He turned to me in surprise.

“Both of you are here!” he said in total surprise.

“Disc, what happened here? Why are you crying?”

“I think he’s been seein’ things that aren’t there.” Applebloom said, “He was just fine when he was teachin’ us, and then suddenly this happened.” She waves her hoof over towards the line of destruction. And wait, what did she mean by “teaching”?

“He took them,” Disc whispered.

“Come again?” Applebloom asked.

“The other me, he thought that I would do better without my pills. He thought I would be able to control the delusions.”

Discord, there was no question about it. (Oh how could you?) I lit up my horn to summon him here. And sure enough, he did.

“So, Princess, what will it-”

“How could you be so cruel?”

He blinked, “Come again?”

“I hope you had a good reason in taking your counterpart’s medicine away.”

“Oh that. You see I… What happened here?” He pointed to the destruction.

“This is what happened when you took his medicine away. He had a hallucination that he couldn’t control, so this happened.”

“But… I thought he would be able to…”

“Discord, did you even so much as given a second thought as to what might happen? Did you so much as planned it out?”

“Plan? Celestia, you know me, I don’t really plan things, I just do ‘em.”

I think one of my eyes twitched. “Discord, that is probably one of the most foolish things that I’ve ever heard coming from you. Now would you please give your counterpart his medicine this instant?”

“Do I have to?”

“Discord, enough is enough, look at him.”

He did, and Applebloom as well.

“Discord, please,” she pleaded.

After a moment, he gave a defeated sigh, “Oh, alright.” He snapped his figures, in which a small silk bag appeared.

After Disc had taken a few of those pills greedily, I turned back to Discord saying, “You do know that I need to give you a punishment?”

“What?! Why?! I gave him his medicine back didn’t I?”

“Discord, your action was cruel, thoughtless and reeks of stupidity. You have broken your second self both psychology and emotionally. You have caused him to put himself and Ponyville in danger. Which is why that-”

“I forgive you,” I was interrupted by Discord’s counterpart. Discord, Applebloom and I turned to him in total surprise.

“I beg your pardon?” I asked.

“I said,” he sat up, looking at Discord in the eye. “I forgive you. While I am mad at you, no, furious at you for doing this to me. Look, maybe between the two of us that I’m the one who's completely lost his head but, I still forgive you. Even though it may take me a while to accept this.”

I took a deep breath, “As noble as that may be, you Discord still have to be punished for your stupidity. So, as a start,” I pointed towards the trail of destruction. “You can clean up everything that your counterpart has left behind.” He was about to snap his claw when I added: “Without using any magic.”

“What?! Come on! That will take forever!” He whined.

“You’re immortal, you always got time. I’ll have you placed under guards’ supervision. So if you so much as conjure up some for your convenience, I will be notified.”

He grunted but started to make his way towards his work. I turned back to the other Discord. “I have come here to bring you some very good news.”

“And what’s that?”

“Twilight has fixed the mirror earlier than expected, which means, you can go back to your own world.”

“So, he’s gonna go back now?” Applebloom seemed deviated when she asked that.

“What is wrong, my little pony?”

“Well, since school still ain’t out yet, can he still stay ta finish it?”


“I’m substituting for Ms. Cherliee mam.” Mr. Disc said, “I volunteered because it gave me something to do while Twilight was away.”

I raised an eyebrow. “I don’t know-”

“Please?” Applebloom asked, giving me her best puppy eyes that would give even the most stern of my personal bodyguards a heart attack.

“Fine, on the condition that I have a guard supervise to look over.”

Applebloom leaped for joy. “Thank ya, your highness.”

I smiled. “But after school, it’s back to the Empire with him.”
