An Intricate Disguise


Selling out has never felt so dirty. (Patreon!)

T

When a major magical mishap leaves Discord homeless and seemingly without his powers, he gets it in his head that he can simply stay with Twilight until he has somewhere else to go. He's rather insistent, too.

But hey, having an annoying and presumptuous roommate that causes ridiculous and unpredictable things to happen all around them simply by existing can't be all that terrible, can it?

...on second thought, maybe don't answer that. Just pray she doesn't end up falling in love with the fool.

I love this dynamic and I love me some Twicord.

Twicord works for me. I haven't read it, but I'll give it a like

I LOVE the synopsis. can't wait for more

Consider that while your stove operates in Fahrenheit,

How difficult was it for you to write that lol

I take two teaspoons of coffee in my sugar

Same honestly

Good shit man, definitely wanna see what happens with this

Heh, you think that's something? In the UK we don't even call them stoves, we call them ovens. I'm constantly using Americanisms in order to foster reader enjoyment and understanding, to the point that I sometimes accidentally use them at home and have to be reminded where I'm actually from!

Tbf I use oven as well, but just in a different way; stove is when I'm making something on top, oven is when the food is inside.

Was a partial inspiration when putting this idea together! Good eye.

Oh hell yeah my dude :D

Ahh the sweet smell of Twicord. I'll just read this with my morning coffee every update and I'll be happy as can be.

Deep down inside, she knew that reading a guide on caring for a draconequus sounded way too interesting to pass up. Stupid interesting Discord.

I got a very distinct Simpsons vibe from that line.

Wut? An intricate disguise writing a book and it’s NOT CLOP?? Impossible!

Hiya! My name is Flurry Heart

This doesn't seam to be a new thing *looks at author tab and sees three non clopfics*

"That's fine, Twilight, dear, I imagined there'd be some resistance at first. After all, I'm probably the first male other than Spike or an ancient Pillar of Harmony to step into this castle since it was founded, I imagine it's all very confusing for you."

I was about to point out that Big Mac has been inside the castle, and Discord has as well, but then I realized that Discord was probably intentionally omitting that detail just to screw with Twilight.

I've noticed that a lot of people I talk to from overseas do the same.

He has no powers now!???




*Takes in a deep breath*
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Haay your number 3 in featured already.

Technically, the stove is the top part with the burners/coils for heating pots and pans, aka "stovetop". We still call the lower part that you stick stuff in for baking an oven over here. :rainbowwild:

And now "modern" kitchens sometimes separate them into different places, even!

Loving this so far. I'll definitely keep in touch.

I wish they'd have one definitive word for the appliance in question, because it has a range of ways to cook food, but I'm not about to get my hopes up. :trollestia:

Oh, and while this usually isn't the kind of story I enjoy reading, I decided to give it a try and found it interesting enough to follow.

just a quick question, how often do you think you can update this, cuz i really wanna see more for this. The idea of Twicord is fantastic and i hardly see stories like this.

:rainbowlaugh: I liked this!
Discord is notoriously hard to do well, and this is a good version.

One of Us One of Us One of Us One of U.S.

It speaks wonders about a TV show when Everyone in Geek Culture knows what you are talking about from just a word and letter.
A show that aint even been live in 25 years. :trollestia:

From Malaysia and I'm UK influenced educated though it's a mix with some American in it but mostly the Colour/Color thing is what I see the most of (I prefer the former, stuck with me since the beginning). I also can't read Farenheit. It's completely alien to me.

A powerless, annoying Discord staying over... I'm getting a Q/Picard vibe here. I wish the show had done that with Starswirl. That would have been fantastic.

Well now. You certainly have me intrigued. I look forward to seeing what this odd couple gets up to.

It's funny how like 50% of the comments is about the proper word association of stove/oven. Yet, I haven't heard anything about refrigerators ... or how Discord is basically scared of Fluttershy. :flutterrage: :rainbowlaugh:

Alternate title: DejΓ‘ Discord. Twilight is the new Picard.

I can't wait to see what happens next!!πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

Damn... remind me never to piss Twilight off when it comes to her books

This is getting more and more entertaining.
I can't wait for the next chapter.

Her ears might have steamed if she was in a cartoon right then, but thankfully she wasn't, and that was impossible.

She made sure any parts of her mane that were starting to smolder were pointed away from Mahogany. The wardrobe might be rude, but it didn't deserve to die in a fire.
Yet.

In any case, Discord clearly has some power. The catch will be getting it back under something resembling control. And whether that can be done before Discord eats Twilight out of house and library.

Ri2

So, how long until the castle gains stairs that go nowhere, a bottomless pit, singing pinatas, and exists in multiple dimensions?

Oh boy, a tsundere-ish Twilight. This'll be good.

Twilight felt feint by this point

faint

Interesting how the sentience and sapience naturally granted by Discord come with a full battery of knowledge. Then again a wardrobe that just screams in existential dread would probably get old fast.

She should count herself lucky that she does not have doors with Genuine People Personalities

Yay!!! New chapter!!!

Dreadnought

I gotta admit, the idea of the God of Chaos without his magic is quite an appealing lure

I detected the Narnia reference right off the bat, but there's had to be more. What else?

9195722
Naaa. The doors in Hitchhiker's were actually pretty happy to be doors. They opened. They closed. They were perfectly content with their lot in life. As doors go they had it ALL.
Mahogany? Daaaaang! That wardrobe is just an asshole!

As a Discolight/Twicord fan, you have my full attention.

9195871 He's now Q from that one ST: TNG episode.

Some weird gaseous cloud thing is gonna show up and try to kill him. I suspect Sombra.
