I Found Love: Discord and Twilight - MLP Fangirl

Shortly after Twilight stood up for him, Discord found something he could only ever dream of having. Who knows? Perhaps she'll return the feelings.

  • ...

Beginning the Journey

It had been about a week since that special day. The day where the Lord of Chaos, Discord, finally decided to confess his feelings to Princess Twilight Sparkle. To his surprise, she had accepted him almost immediately, and he couldn't have been happier.

The new couple wanted to take things slow. After all, this was the first time any of them had had a particular love interest. Twilight and Discord were new to romance. Sure, they knew what it was and had a good understanding of it, but they themselves had never experienced it.

That was due in large part to their previous anti-socialism. When Twilight lived in Canterlot, she was always distancing herself from other ponies. She had never expressed any interest in finding that special somepony. There had been numerous high-society stallions who would have pleaded for her hoof in marriage if they ever got the chance. Twilight was of Canterlot nobility, so she had caught the eye of several eligible colts. But, her studious nature caused her to reject any talk of courting and the like.

Discord was like her in the sense that he never sought love. He wasn't a shut-in bookworm like she was, but his chaotic tendencies drove away any hopes of romance in his life. Plus, it wasn't like he was looking for a potential partner.

But, the past is the past. Twilight and Discord are now going to be embarking on a journey that many long to make. Romance may have been unheard of for them in the past, but now, they'll be able to experience it for themselves.

Twilight was reading a book in her lounge, a sight not uncommon to see. She was also thinking about her new coltfriend, or should it be draconeques-friend? Anyway, Twilight hadn't really told her friends about their new relationship. Applejack already knew, but Twilight was unsure how the others would react.

As far as she was concerned, her friends didn't have a companion of their own. Would they be jealous? Twilight shook her head.

"Come on, Twilight. These are your friends you're talking about. They're not going to be jealous. They were trying to encourage me to tell Discord about my feelings. If they didn't like the idea, why would they persuade me to take actions? I'm sure I have nothing to worry about." Twilight looked around the empty room and slumped her head.

She sighed, "I really need to stop talking to myself."

"Then, why not talk to me?" A voice that Twilight recognized reverberated throughout the room.

Twilight giggled, "Hello, Discord."

There was a flash of light, and the infamous spirit appeared in the room.

"Aww, how'd you know it was me?" Discord feigned surprise.

Twilight raised an eyebrow, "It's not hard to figure out, you know." She jumped off of the couch and trotted over to him.

"Well, I'll have to kick my tricks up a notch to impress you," Discord grinned. He curled around Twilight and placed his hands on his hips.

"So, how're things? Regretting your decision yet?" Discord joked.

Twilight rolled her eyes, "We haven't exactly done anything that would make me rethink my decision."

Discord stroked his white goatee, "I suppose you're right. We're gonna have to change that." He smirked, tickling her nose with his tail fluff.

She scrunched her nose and backed away, "If you plan on doing things to me, you can pack up your things and leave because I will dump you on the spot. I may be new to this whole relationship thing, but I'm not ignorant."

"I never said you were. And I don't plan on doing anything to you. Unless, of course, you want me to, in which case, feel free to ask," Discord wiggled his eyebrows in a suggestive manner.

Twilight felt her cheeks warm up, "I-I don't think I'll make such requests. It's a little early to be thinking about that. This is the first stage. We haven't even told the girls."

Admittedly, that was something they should have done already. Better to tell those who you can trust then to tell random ponies and start gossip.

"Well, I guess that's our next course of action. This kind of thing isn't something to keep quiet about. How should we tell them?" Discord summoned a stool and sat on it, posing in a thinking manner.

"Well, Applejack has given us her approval, so that's one down already. As for the rest, uh..." Twilight put a hoof to her chin.

"To be honest, I don't think they'll give us much trouble. They're the ones who give us the advice to tell each other. Huh, wow! I still can't believe you had actually developed feelings for me. That has never happened before," Discord mused.

Twilight chuckled, "Well, same goes for me. Nopony has truly developed an attraction for me. I mean, I've had some admirers, but none to the point of establishing a relationship with."

"A fact I find hard to believe," Discord gave Twilight a comedic grin, to which she rolled her eyes at.

"Sure. Anyway, I think you're right. But that's just our friends. How will others react?" Twilight looked over at him.

Discord opened his mouth to respond but closed it as he processed the question. How would others react? They didn't know about their situation.

"We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. Besides, what's the worst thing the populace could do to us? I mean, most of the ponies in this town couldn't come up with an insult even if somepony was paying them a million bits to do so. We've got nothing to worry about." Discord put his hands on her shoulders.

Twilight smiled, "You've got a point. Now, I don't know about you, but I'm getting kind of hungry. Shall we get something to eat?"

Discord put his claw on his chest. "Why, Twilight Sparkle! Are you asking me out on a date?" He asked, feigning surprise.

Twilight blinked, "I-uh, if you want to call it that, you can. I wasn't--"

"'Cause I'm pretty sure that's my job," Discord gave her a sly smile. "Would you like to get a bite to eat, my princess? My treat?"

Twilight rolled her eyes. "I'd love to, my good draconeques. Wherever are you planning on taking me?"

"I was thinking the Haybuger. I have a sudden craving for some hayburgers," Discord rubbed his stomach.

"Funny, so do I. Guess the vote's unanimous. Let's go." Twilight lit up her horn to teleport, but Discord's finger being placed on her horn disrupted the magic flow.

Twilight looked up and frowned, "You know, if I had been at the apex of that teleportation spell and you had done that then, I could've gotten hurt. Please do not disrupt my magic. I get very ticked off by that."

Discord took a step back, "Sheesh, don't take it all out on me. Anyway, I apologize. But, I don't want to teleport. I think now would be the perfect time to have a nice stroll with my princess. Surely you wouldn't decline such a tempting offer. Especially from me." He slid a finger down her cheek, sending chills down her spine.

Twilight gently pushed him away, "Very well then. I give you permission to escort me to the Hayburger. If anything happens to me, I'll hold you responsible." She walked out of the room, pulling her neck back to mimic a Canterlot noble.

Discord chuckled before realizing she was getting ahead of him. "Hey! How I can escort you when you're walking ahead?"

Twilight and Discord were strolling down the dusty roads of Ponyville, passing by several ponies. By this time, the citizens of Ponyville had pretty much forgiven the draconeques. It took some time, but Discord proved to the town that he truly had changed by helping out the townsponies. He had definitely gained the trust back from some ponies. He hoped that one day, everypony in Equestria would learn to reaccept him.

"Hi, Princess Twilight!"

"Oh, hello, Daisy. How are you?" Twilight greeted the florist.

"I'm doing okay. What are you doing today? Oh! Would you like to come to my stand? I'm having a 30% discount on red carnations," Daisy motioned over to her shop with her head.

"Flowers, huh?" Discord butted in. "I can think of no better gift to give for my mare." Discord winked at Twilight.

Twilight blushed, trying to conceal her embarrassment by turning away.

"Oh, Discord! Sorry, I didn't realize you were there. Wait, you have a marefriend? Who is she?" Daisy raised an eyebrow.

Twilight jerked her head up. Discord, please don't say anything that you might regret.

"Why don't you guess?" Discord smirked, placing his paw on his hip.

Daisy put a hoof to her chin, "Uh, I don't know. Pinkie Pie?"

Discord chuckled, "Good guess. But, no. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy Pinkie's exuberance. But, she's a little too much for me to handle. That mare's got the energy of a dozen little kids at the park who just had seventeen pounds of sugarcubes. And that's dumbing it down a bit."

Twilight silently huffed, "Why do I have the feeling this won't end well?" She muttered to herself.

"Well, then is it...Applejack?" Daisy shrugged.

Discord held back a laugh, "Are you serious? The day Applejack becomes my marefriend is the day I renounce chaos."

"Ugh, this is pointless. Just tell me who the mare is, for pony's sake!" Daisy furrowed her eyebrows.

"Look, Daisy, I--"

"I'll give you a hint. She's standing next to me," Discord gave a pointed look towards Twilight.

Daisy looked at Discord, then at Twilight, then back at Discord. Her eyes widened.

"Wait, you two are...? Oh! Well, that's unexpected. You certainly have odd tastes, Your Highness." Daisy grinned and winked.

Twilight shyly hid behind her wing. "You don't plan on spreading this news, are you?" Twilight peeked over her wing.

Daisy giggled, "Only if you want me to. I'm not one to gossip. But, you know, ponies are going to find out one way or another."

Twilight nodded. "Yah, I know. We're working on it. Thanks, Daisy."

"No problem. Here, take my card. I've got a great selection of flowers on display. Feel free to stop by anytime!" Daisy walked away, waving a hoof.

"Well, that was a fun distraction. But, it's past noon, and I'm not going to wait any longer. Forget walking, it's magic time!" Discord flourished his eagle claw and snapped his fingers, causing both of them to disappear in a flash.

In a burst of light, Discord and Twilight appeared inside Hayburger, startling almost everypony there. They found themselves seated at a booth.

Twilight hoped with every fiber of her body that this would not turn into a rotten day.

This was actually their first official date. Twilight had read several romance novels and understood that the first date was always the most important one. It would decide whether or not they should continue the relationship. Knowing Discord, Twilight could easily predict something would happen that she would not be appreciative of. But, there's only one way to find out.

"So, what are you getting?" Twilight held up the menu, examining it.

Discord held his menu with his goat horn. "I don't know what to get. Everything here is in another language. What's a regrubyah?"

Twilight turned her attention to his menu and noticed it was upside down. She rolled her eyes. She used her magic to turn the menu right-side up.

Discord gave a look of fake surprise. "Oh? It was upside down? Oh, my mistake. Thank you for correcting my error, Twilight." Discord gave a fake smile.

"Yah, mistake. Anywho, I already know what I want, so I'm going to go up and order. Feel free to come up when you're ready." Twilight quickly got up and went to the counter.

Discord noticed Twilight's lack of enthusiasm. Drat! You're losing her, Discord. Not a good way to start. Got to step up my game.

Discord looked around the restaurant. His eyes landed on something. Bingo! He got up and was about head to the counter when he bumped into someone.

"Hey! Watch where you're--Discord? Since when do you get fast food?"

"Oh, hello, Rainbow Dash. And yes, I'm eating out. But, really, I love fast food as much as the next guy. I just don't come here often," Discord crossed her arms.

"Hmm. Okay, I'll buy it. So, what are--"

"Oh, hi, Rainbow Dash!" Twilight interrupted. She was levitating a tray of food in her magic. She set it down on the table and turned to Rainbow.

"Oh, hey, Twi! Wow, is everypony here today?" Rainbow nudged Twilight.

"Just a coincidence, I guess," Twilight shrugged. She looked at Discord for a second before panic flooded into her eyes.

Discord noticed this and gave her a subtle wink.

"So, Twilight, you feel like going for a flight later on? Today's my day off, which is the reason I'm here." Rainbow took a bite from her hayburger.

Twilight took a sip of her fruit punch before responding, "A flight, huh? Sure, I'd love to stretch my wings." She looked at Discord who raised an eyebrow at her.

Discord rolled his eyes, "Can I join you? I'm fancying a flight myself."

Rainbow narrowed her eyes, "You really think I'm going to let you--"

"He's fine, Dash. I want him to join us. After all, he is our friend," Twilight looked at Discord.

Rainbow gave Twilight a quizzical look before shrugging, "Have it your way. Don't blame me if we get snow in April."

Discord put his claw to his chest, "Why, Rainbow Dash, how could you possibly think that I would do something so, so boring? Come on, snow? How delightfully simple. I'm offended at the mere thought of that."

Twilight giggled. "Don't worry, Rainbow. I'm sure we'll be able to keep him in line." She subtly fluttered her eyelashes, causing Discord to turn his gaze away.

Rainbow noticed this odd display. She raised an eyebrow. "Uh, Twilight? You feeling all right?"

Twilight grinned, "Of course, I am. What makes you think I'm not?"

Discord stretched his arms out in front of him, "Ah! Well, that was a satisfying meal. But, I'm in the mood for dessert. How 'bout you, Twi?"

Twilight turned to Discord, "Dessert? That sounds nice. Can you get a--?" Before she could finish, Discord dashed up to the counter and ordered something.

Rainbow narrowed her eyes again, "Twilight, something's not right. Discord's acting weird."

Twilight rolled her eyes and looked at the blue Pegasus next to her. "Always with the conspiracies. Honestly, Rainbow, can't you look at Discord in a--" She was once again interrupted by Discord's return.

"Anypony in the mood for a banana split?" Discord set the bowl of ice cream down on the table.

Twilight gaped, "How did you know?"

Discord shrugged, "Great minds think alike, I guess." The mismatched creature winked once again at the purple alicorn.

Twilight grinned and took a bite from the dessert, "Mmm! You're too sweet."

Rainbow scrunched her eyelid, "Ok. What's going on? You two are acting strange."

Discord took a bite from the split as well, "You'll find out soon enough." He said with his mouth full.

After a few minutes, the three had left the Hayburger. As agreed earlier, they took off into the cool blue sky. It was a beautiful day, hardly a cloud in the sky, flying all the more enjoyable.

"Isn't flying the best?" Rainbow flew in a loop before flying back to the others.

Twilight was behind a bit. Her flying had improved greatly, but that didn't mean she had perfected it.

Discord stayed next to her, making sure to keep a close eye on her. "You doing okay?"

"Huh? Oh, I'm fine. I've pretty much gotten the hang of it." Twilight wobbled around a bit but straightened herself up.

"Come on, Twi. I know you're faster than that. No rush or anything, but do you mind picking up the pace?" Rainbow asked in a rather impatient manner.

Twilight rolled her eyes. "Oh, Rainbow." Twilight flapped her wings a little faster, allowing her to propel herself forward.

Discord flew faster to catch up with her. Rainbow was a little ways away. "So, do you think we ought to tell her? She's been suspicious of us all day."

Twilight looked towards Rainbow and smiled. "We'll tell her. But, let's make this interesting. If you know what I mean." She winked.

Discord raised an eyebrow, but his confused expression was soon replaced with a smug grin. "I catch your drift."

He took Twilight's hoof and rocketed forward to catch up to Rainbow Dash.

Rainbow felt something coming and turned around to see Discord and Twilight finally catch up. "About time, you guys! I was wonderi--uh?"

She saw what she never expected to see. Twilight was sitting on Discord's back, snuggling against his furry backside.

Rainbow Dash rubbed her eyes but continued to witness the same thing. "Okay, what the hay is going on? Twilight, what are you doing? You two have been acting odd all day. And I don't mean your normal 'odd.' Spill!" Rainbow flew in front of them, crossing her forehooves.

Discord winked back at Twilight, "Why, Rainbow Dash, I do believe it is customary of mares to snuggle with their coltfriends. I don't believe that certain tradition has changed." Discord smirked in a Cheshire cat-like manner.

Rainbow stared blankly. Twilight got off of Discord's back and waved a hoof in front of Rainbow. "Hello? Dash? I think you broke her, Discord."

Discord waved his eagle claw. " Pish, Posh! Broke Rainbow Dash? Ha, not in a million years. She'll snap out of it in three...two...one..."

Rainbow shook her head and looked at two with confusion. "Are you saying that the egghead and chaos king are an item now?"

Twilight snorted, "I guess that's one way if putting it. But, yes. Shocking, I know. But, he's really not that bad." Twilight smiled at Discord.

"Oh, stop it. I'm going to lose all of my dignity if you keep doing that," Discord turned away with a slight blush spreading on his cheeks.

Rainbow Dash was silent for a few seconds before her face broke out into a sly smirk. She started flying ahead, causing Twilight and Discord to quickly follow.

"So, who was the brave one? I know you two already had feelings for each other. But, who confessed first?" Rainbow asked with anticipation.

"Guilty as charged, Your Honor. Frankly, I could've picked a more 'proper' location for it, but hey, you work with what'cha got. Am I right?" Discord chuckled. He noticed Twilight beginning to strain herself, so he flew underneath her allowing her to rest on his back once more.

"Thanks, Discord. And, I must admit, I never expected to hear those words come out of your mouth." She gently nudged him with her hoof.

"What can I say? Hanging with you has improved my lexicon," Discord tickled her nose with his tail fluff, eliciting a cute giggle from her.

Rainbow shook her head and chuckled, "Got to say, Twi. Didn't think you had it in you. You two may be the strangest couple I've ever seen. But, you've got my support." Rainbow patted both of them on the back.

Twilight gave Rainbow a hug, which she gladly returned.

After about an hour up in the sky, the trio eventually decided to call it a night. Twilight and Discord dropped Rainbow off at her cloud home and bid her goodbye.

Discord then teleported back to Twilight's castle, where Spike was waiting. And from the looks of things, he didn't seem too happy.

"About time you guys got home. I've been here for about three hours alone. Though, I appreciate a little 'me time,' can you try to get home sooner next time?" Spike crossed his arms.

Discord rolled his eyes, "Yes, Dad. So sorry to have kept you waiting."

Twilight giggled, "Yah, sorry, Spike. We didn't realize how late it was. I promise that next time we'll be back sooner. Okay?" Twilight stretched her hooves out for a hug.

Spike hopped into her arms, and she wrapped her hooves around his little body. "Okay. Thanks, Twi. Now, I don't know about you, but I'm rather tired. I'm heading to bed. G'night!" Spike scurried off down the hall.

Twilight sighed as she watched her assistant run off. "Spike, don't ever change." She then turned to Discord. "And you."

Discord was examining his nails but stopped when he heard her speak, "Yes?"

Twilight flew up and gave him a little peck on the cheek. Discord froze immediately, cheeks turning the brightest red.


"I had a great time today, Discord. Even if we didn't get the day to ourselves. But, next time, let's go somewhere for just the two of us. I'm thinking a picnic in the park. Sound good?"

Discord's mouth was slightly open. He quickly shook his head, gaining a sly expression, "For you, my Princess, anything."

Twilight gave Discord a hug, and he teleported back home.

When he got home, he lounged on his bed and sighed in contentment. Yes, this day had been great. And there were more great days to come.

Author's Note:

Hi, I am sooooo sorry for the wait. I've been busy with school work and real life interferences.
Well, wait no longer. Here's another chapter. Can't say I'm proud of it, but I can't say I'm disappointed.
Either way, I hope you enjoy it.
See you next time.
