Nothing foils a good plan for revenge like having your plot explained to your target, and then being forced to spend time with said target without murdering them.

This is a lesson Chrysalis will learn during one of the strangest days of her life, courtesy of an insane (or possibly just inane) draconequus.

As for Starlight, well, it's not like she was doing anything. What's a guidance counselor in a school of friends even do? Honestly.

TL;DR Discord tries to forcibly ship Starlight Glimmer and Chrysalis.

Are there spoilers for the latest episode in here?

"Chrysalis, this whole conversation started because you were talking to yourself about your plans, because you have no friends and are extremely lonely. Are you trying to say this is one of your high moments?"

Drubbed.

I have it on Word of God that the spoilers are incredibly minor and require some degree of inference.

Awww.

Also, the parasprite comment was gold.

Basically "Not really". They just happen to deal with similar subject matter/characters.

I like this story. It's interesting.
Also, can't wait for them to kill Discord.XD

Have to say I love the setup of this story. Two characters separately by the morality spectrum, yet with little choice but to communicate, leading to greater understanding on both sides. I hope it doesn't just end with Chrysalis becoming nice and good, and that they instead at least meet each other half way.

The author's music choices are on point.

inb4 discord shows up

How does it feel to be reading this just barely faster than I am writing it?

It is really nice seeing twilight being this... Twilight-y.

This story is infinite talking heads.

And the author's notes are atrocious.

link is broken in the AN

8977514
Eh, considering discord could have just altered their minds if he really wanted to, I'd say this has been pretty reasonable.

8977535
Holy shit. I had no idea until I read your comment. My stuff never gets featured. This is weird.

Wait... is that it?!?! aww.... so much for the joy ride. Very well written, good sir. Have a star!

8977540
what are you talking about? this story has been featured all day

Notice: No "Complete" status!

"When we first met, I offered to help you. That offer hasn't changed. I never wanted any of that for you. The suffering and all. I wanted to help you skip it. And I'd still like to help."

Everything from this second onward reminded me of how much Starlight hated herself, which reminded me of how much I hated myself, which in turn lead to her desire to spare Chrysalis from her the same suffering reminding me of my own experiences, watching friends make the same mistakes I made, and the feeling of helplessness as I desperately, desperately wanted to spare them even a moment of the suffering I felt and being unable to do so.

I was wondering when you were going to hurt me again, Solo.

Also, given how much even the needling that ponies might not trust her hurt her in the previous chapter, Twilight's complete and reflexive trust of Starlight's choices hit me right in the gut. It also stands in a stark contrast with what happened with Trixie. They've grown so much, those two.

Feels good, man. Feels good.

I never stopped hurting you. You just numbed over, see.

Ah... now THAT is an old meme. LOVE IT!

WHEN DID THIS BECOME MY LIFE

Starlight.

You're a guidance counselor.

Furthermore, you have, twice now, arranged yourself to follow in Twilight's footsteps in this exact matter.

Don't call it a grave, it's the future you chose.

[ugly cackling that carries on for a very long time]

Starlight pondered that, chewing her lip over, and shrugged. "The sooner everypony is on the same page, the better. It'll help build trust. Don't worry; if anyone starts anything, I'll finish it."

Hurt Starlight's waifu, she ends your laifu.

This chapter was a nice bit of downtime after the absolute roller coaster of the previous chapters.

Oh no... Haven't read this yet, but... Wow, I have a bad feeling about this.

8977794
Why's that? What prompted this comment?

YOU MUST TELL ME

8977540 I'm amazed it took that long, with how relevant it is right now. Of the three Chryssi stories of the last 24 hours, this is the one I'm most keen on, and at least one of the others is already featured. Congratulations!

I like my love stories with ultraviolence.

A man/woman/etc. after my own heart. Please don't burn yourself out on this, take it slower if necessary. I love where this is going!

8977835
I guess that's what I get for actually trying to be topical to the show with my writing for once.

8977840
Oh, far from it. This is me writing leisurely. It takes virtually no effort to write this way, but that's why the story has a few issues (talking heads, occasionally having to explain something that happened earlier). It's sort of stream-of-consciousness.

8977811
Just... The thought of Discord... SHIPPING!

8977765
And now there's more! Lucky you

I kinda wonder if Crystalis knows/knew about Luna being Nightmare Moon.

Considering it seems Twilight, Celestia's student didn't know about Nightmare Moon being Celestia's sister, Crystalis might very well not know. So, could that mean Starlight introduces her to Luna ?

I am just loving this so far :rainbowlaugh:

Wow! That was quick! Thought I'd have to wait a month.
