Metool Bard

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


This story is a sequel to Reformation Buddies

The Friendship Games are tomorrow, and Sonata Dusk couldn't be more excited. However, the same cannot be said for Adagio Dazzle. Even after all these months, she still feels bitter about the Battle of the Bands. What's more, her fellow Sirens have befriended the Rainbooms, and she feels as though they don't respect her anymore. While nothing could be farther from the truth, proving it might be a bit tricky.

Luckily, Discord just happens to be in the area, and he's willing to help the Sirens out. The only question is, are the girls going to like it?

Considering that Discord is reaching into his old playbook for this one, probably not.

"Okay, heads I win; tails you lose."

Best line of the fic. :rainbowlaugh:

"To be fair, I think most of this is your fault. When you made your little plan to have us make nice with the Rainbooms, you deliberately cut her out of it."
"She was trying to sabotage my friendship with Sunny," said Discord with a pout.
"Only because she didn't know what you were really planning," Aria countered. "If you just told her, maybe she wouldn't be like this."

Sums up my problem with the original fic. Well, that and Adagio being uncharacteristically stupid there.

6800098 I always thought Adagio's one-track mind was a bit stupid, so it's just as well. Plus, what can I say? Discord can be a very vindictive jerk when he wants to be. :duck:

Not to heavily criticize Nightglimmer22, but the cover artist might want to go back and retouch his/her work after getting a little more experience.

Nice draft concept also, and you're right, this does look like it could use some more filling. So I'm happy to support you as you let your think tank percolate a bit.

6800168 Discord? Vindictive? Say it ain't so! :ajsmug:

this just made my day :pinkiehappy:

We've got an ace in the whole.

Hole. Ace in the hole.

Discord using the Jedi Mind Trick on Flash is pretty funny. :rainbowlaugh:

With that, he snapped his fingers and summoned a red doghouse. He climbed up on top of it, donning a pair of flight goggle and a red scarf. The doghouse rumbled as though it had the engine of an airplane and suddenly took off into the air. With one final salute to the Sirens, Discord disappeared in a flash of light.

"Huh. Well, that happened," said Aria.

Yes. Yes it did.

"Yeah, good thing this soup doesn't take long to make," said Sonata, handing Aria the bowl. "Here, you feed it to her. I'll take her temperature afterward."

What, is she planning to take it up her butt? Because you don't do the oral thermometer right after you've eaten or drunk something.

"It's my own special recipe," Sonata chirped. "Creme of Taco."

Adagio's eyes went wide. "C-Creme of what now?"

"Creme of Taco," Sonata repeated.

Adagio spat out the soup, spraying Aria's face.

"Blech~! Ick~! You braindead moron!" she sputtered. "What made you think that was a good idea?!

Taco soup is a real thing, y'know...

That was a fun little read. I don't think you really need to expand on this, aside from maybe a short, silly epilogue where Sonata and Aria run Adagio ragged.

6801600 Thanks for catching that mistake up there. :twilightblush:

Also, did not know that taco soup was a thing. Although I doubt it has a creme base. :rainbowlaugh:

6802136 Not usually, no. In practice, it's more of a watery, taco-flavored chili with veggies in. You eat it with tortilla chips. But you can put sour cream in it!

Oh? This is just a taste of what's to come?


"Cover art is provided by the amazingly talented"....Ghahahaaahaaaaaa. I'm sorry, but I just can't. Are you serious? That picture is abysmal! I know it's a mean thing to say, but it's true!

6835192 Jeez, rude. :trixieshiftright:

Art is subjective, my friend. And while this isn't the best cover art I've commissioned, it's a hell of a lot better than anything I could draw. :applejackunsure:

You contradicted yourself -- how would you know that you can't do better if it's all subjective? There is no "better" or "worse" if it's subjective.

6836058 Well, that's my subjective opinion. Otherwise, I would've drawn it myself. :duck:

With a snap of his fingers, he teleported in front of Flash wearing a long brown cloak. Before Flash could say anything, Discord waved his paw in front of him.
"You did not see anything strange here," he said.
"I did not see anything strange here," Flash repeated blankly.
"You will go about your day like nothing happened," said Discord, waving his paw again.
"I will go about my day like nothing happened," Flash repeated.
"Be on your way."
"I'll, just be on my way."
Flash turned around and marched to his class. Discord breathed a sigh of relief.

If memory serves, that only works on the weak minded. Poor Flash.

"Oh gosh. Th-this is worse than we thought," she whimpered. "Adagio, if there's anything we can do, anything at all, just name it."
Adagio let out a cough before her lips curled into a thin smile. "Well..."

This is gonna go like Glass of Water, increasingly ridiculous requests, except no song.

"Aria~! I want a glass of water!"

Called it!

I accidentally skimmed through the bathroom section and didn't read that Discord was there first. I thought Adagio was on the toilet and 'she' turned out to be a 'he' and I got momentarily perturbed.

I see Discord mindwiping Flash is something of a running gag in this series. I like it.

And this was pretty sweet. Now if only the other sirens could convince Adagio to expand her social circle. Well, I suppose that's what the other sequel is for.
