Well, this looks like it could be an entertaining story. Love the work that went into the exchanges, characterizations and future chapter set-up. Loved Starswirl's interactions with Young Celestia and Luna, as well as his frustration concerning his "masterpiece spell" when he first met Baby Discord.

Yeah, have to say that a Discord raised by Starswirl DOES have potential and COULD explain how he could lash out the way he did after Starswirl and the other Pillars disappeared.

At any rate, VERY definitely looking forward to more of this.

The Cause of Chaos bad parenting by starswirl

I know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but as soon as I saw the cover art, I thought "Young Discord angst with Starswirl? Oh I'm going to LOVE this!" Luckily, I wasn't wrong. I'm already loving the father figure Starswirl thing you have going on, and I'm sure it's only going to get better.

Also, I love that Starswirl's first thought upon finding a potentially lost child isn't "Maybe I should try to help you find your mom". He's just like "Welp, I don't see your parents, guess you're mine now!". I wonder If Starswirl sees Discord as a glorified, highly intelligent animal. If so, then him feeling comfortable just taking Discord home without spending 10 minutes trying to find his parents makes sense.

So Starswirl finds out that the youngster has no family (at least none he particularly cares about) and finds out a bit more of his abilities. And, yeah, pretty good origin for Discord's name.

Anyway, the characterizations and exchange are pretty well done and I'm certainly going to be looking forward to more of this.

REALLY good job on the exchanges, characterizations and future chapter set-up in this latest installment. Yeah, have to say Luna and Celestia's reactions to their first meeting with Discord DOES make sense (both because, unfortunately, LOTS of children react that way to finding out they have essentially a new adopted sibling AND because Discord looks so different from them), but at the same time, I can also feel for Discord a bit (yeah, being feared just for looking different and having that kind of power with no control over it ISN'T a good place to be). But, yeah, I DID really like Starswirl trying to educate Celestia, Luna and Discord.

Very certainly looking forward to more of this.

Given that he's housing three young to be gods, Starswirl should be happy that only the kitchen, his books, and his blood pressure were harmed.
