Just a nice, polite Canadian.


Discord breaks off his relationship with Reality in order to see Insanity exclusively. It's better for everyone this way.

Or that's what he keeps telling himself.

Interesting... well is has defiantly earned a like from me :twilightsmile:!

Interesting concept. Well done! :twilightsmile:

You're on fire with the Discord fics! I love this one to bits, and I know those feels. Not that I would like to go insane, but I know what numbing yourself because you're scared of emotion feels like.

Build a castle in the sky made out of condescending teddy bears?

Have a like


That was nice.

Also, Discord is now a cat.

Oddly enough I seem to have wrote my response to this, several years before you wrote the story. Which of course is competently appropriate in this case.:raritywink: https://sites.google.com/site/quixoticsstudy/The-Library/dancing-diatribe

Pretty great. Just one thing, italics.

That was enjoyable.

This was decent.

7024959 Coming from you... decent = great! :pinkiehappy:

7024841 Thank you! :twilightsmile: I was a little worried this concept would be a bit too weird. Guess that means we can get weirder then!

7024485 I was originally going to use italics like usual, but thought since it's all letters, it would be hard to write italics. Also, Discord... so YELLING in written form. Glad you liked it regardless!

7024214 Correction. Discord has always been a cat. You realize how much he naps?

7024124 My favorite line. "You call that a bridge? I'm full of stuffing smarter than you!"

7023907 Thank you! :yay: I love you too. In a purely professional sense.

7023823 Thanks for saying so! I'll need to check if I have anymore Discord stories I've been meaning to get to. I know I have a very dark one that I've been sitting on... maybe a little too dark, though. :pinkiesick:

7023783 Thanks! :moustache: Glad you enjoyed it.

That was great! I think this is relevant to the topic at hand:


Wow.... Such a wonderful little work of art.
I'm quiet jealous I didn't think of this Idea first. XD Nicely written- though a bit tedious with the reality bashing.... This definitely qualifies as a 'Hidden Gem' in my book though- as it's a wonderful dive into Discord's personality- and mindset.

If I were to suggest anything though- perhaps put Fluttershy's Letter in Italics? .... Or at least a more Dainty Handwriting. That way it's only just SLIGHTLY more believable (even though I think you nailed the characters all spot on here.) Well Done.

A superb character piece for Discord.

7030051 Thank you! :twilightsmile: Glad you liked it.

7028665 I agree. Changed the Fluttershy part to italics. And too much Reality bashing? Never! :flutterrage: You must be a fan of Reality. How silly of you.

Only kidding. Thanks for the comment!

7026408 Thanks for saying so! :pinkiehappy:

This sounds exactly like something Discord would do. But you know, it's a metaphor for all of us. Most of us hate our reality. Hell, we hate is so much we read fictional stories about pastel colored ponies just to escape it. But it's not all bad, I guess. Insanity is not all it's cracked up to be either...unless you're a spirit of chaos.


Awwwwwwwww feels
Wow... I really like the way this fic is written

Cats tho xd:twilightsmile:

It seems that during the first half yyou could replace "Insanity" with anyone you want to see shipped with Discord, and replace "Reality" with anyone you see shipped with Discord you rather not see and it would fit like a glove.

She thinks because she’s a part of EVERYONE’S lives that that somehow gives her the right to be included in mine. But you know what? I’ve never been the type that follows the norm.

That x2

This was nice, strength forward, simple concept with no complicated insight to look into. It's a swallow way to address a fairly sensitive topic and the good thing about that is that makes it really accessible to all public.

The numbers speak for themselves with a 106/0 up/down vote ratio it would only take another hundred or so for this story to be among the top rated of the site.


7132001 I’m a bit late, but I’d like to point out that “that that” (see what I did there?) is grammatically correct, though admittedly a bit awkward. The first “that” connects the two clauses “She thinks because she’s a part of EVERYONE’S lives” and “that somehow gives her the right to be included in mine.”, whilst the second “that” is a pronoun.

And I’m quite impressed with the zero downvotes (so far) as well. They’re rare, like valuable gems. :raritywink:

7139631 Alright if you say so, still I would at least put the "somehow" between the two "that" so that (LOL) it wouldn't sound awkward anymore.

One word in between makes a big difference don't you think.:twilightsheepish:

And yes it's quite difficult to get this much attention without gathering disapproval. The longer the story exist and the more people see it the more likely it is to get a negative rating. Right now the top stories that exist without down-votes on the site I think are:

Luna's Throne
Frame of Reference

Of course having down-votes doesn't discredit the value of any other story. Just like beauty is in the eye of the beholder, the idea of up-voting worthy writing it's different from person to person.


7139717 I suppose swapping the second “that” and “somehow” does make it flow better. Paging 7030174.

As for the stories with flawless ratings, don’t jinx it by linking to them! (though thanks for letting me know that there’s other such fics out there :derpytongue2:)

Ya know...i had some simillar philosophical conversation with my motor cycle helm and my ocha mug a few years back...those days...it gave me the shivers...

This story is short...

...a short masterpiece! It's very well written, another job well done!

Good one shot, nothing less than what I expected from you. Keep it up!

I'm giving that one downvote the stink eye, maybe it will go away

Re-reading this just confirms how great a story it is.
Aw, screw it, have a favourite.
