Hasty Revision


This story is a sequel to Royaltea

There are two things that can be said about Discord with reasonable certainty. First, he will spread chaos wherever he goes and, second, he will be at Fluttershy's on Tuesday for tea. It's an arrangement that nopony else knows whether to take seriously or not, to the point that many in Ponyville doubt it even happens. So far as most of them know, Discord isn't wreaking havoc and the wielders of the Elements (and the Elements themselves) are to thank for it, end of story.

The truth is that the reigning in of Discord rests less on the Elements and more on one mare having the nerve to be his friend in the only way she knows how: with patience, kindness and consideration. It's an idea just crazy enough to work.


Follows on from my previous story Royaltea. This is planned as an anthology of short stories and scenes based around Fluttershy's friendship with Discord, specifically in the form of their weekly tea parties. Chronological order may or may not be followed from one entry to the next.

This is pretty good so far, I'm curious to see what the next chapter looks like. Also, will you be doing some chapters from Discord's POV?

Thanks for reading, I'm glad you're enjoying it so far. As for Discord's POV, I'm undecided. I've thought about how to approach that and I'm not sure how to do him justice, especially in a first-person perspective. There's a lot of decisions I'd have to make about who he is and how he thinks that, unlike Fluttershy, there isn't a lot of background for. I might try it eventually but for the moment everything I have drafted for this anthology is from Fluttershy's perspective. Sorry to disappoint if you were hoping for that.

Thank you for your feedback, I really appreciate it.

I'm not disappointed, I agree that Discord can be a bit tricky to write for, so just do what you feel most comfortable with.
