I love fluttercord way too much.


Inspired by Elemental and written in a frenzied haze, one author tries desperately to make a fluttercord fic loosely based on the movie.

Fluttershy had always admired the Draconequus that performed feats of chaos magic in Draconequus Town, the portion of Mythic City where the species lived. She always watched his shows during her breaks from working at her father's cloud museum.

She had always considered herself his biggest fan, even if she didn't know his name. But that was for the best. After all, harmony and chaos couldn't mix.

But what if they did?

You have no idea how much I’m in love with this. The writing :raritydespair::raritycry:
It’s so beautiful
And I haven’t even watched Elemental
What are you talking about “so many things wrong?” I don’t even have enough words to express how much I love your execution of this concept. Well done. Well done indeed.

is a good discord story

Oh, I love this! Elemental is such a great movie, and Steal the Show is an amazing song--I remember listening to it like non-stop after I saw the movie in theaters. I'll have to go listen to it again now lol. :twilightsmile:

The scene where Discord and Fluttershy finally touched was beautiful; I was nearly crying right along with them. :heart:

Great job on this! :pinkiesmile:

Powerful! I've always pictured Fluttershy and Discord with Elemental♥️

11697876 Thank you so much! Sometimes I post these things so quickly that I worry I was too hasty. And I actually did fix a lot of typos I found right after publishing, haha! But I'm so glad you feel that way! I'd definitely recommend a watch of "Elemental". I call it a loose translation, but i still took a ton from it! It's a beautiful film, in animation and story. The characters are just *chef's kiss*.

Thank you so much! I'm glad you think so.

I am currently also listening to it several times a day! And I'm so glad you enjoyed this after seeing the film its inspired from. Especially if the touch scene was enough to get an emotional reaction from you. That is the greatest compliment to any writer. Thank you so much, that means a lot to me.

Right??? I was surpirised how easily making it fit into Elemental's narrative was, using magic as the means of separation rather than their actual species. Thank you so much! I actually really like that you found it powerful. I wasn't sure if I echoed that feeling the way that "Elemental" did. So I'm so happy you feel that way!

I’ve watched the trailer and some reviews, oh and yeah, I did forget, I started watching it but I’m still at the start like <20 minutes into the film.

Haha, yep, good ol’ typos. But in terms of your prose, no mistake there. It’s immaculate. I love it so much :raritycry: Definitely gonna reread after I finish the movie. It’s gonna hit harder then, I reckon.

I feel so dense, I just remembered Steal The Show was literally a song part of the movie, the name was ringing bells but I couldn’t remember for the life of me.

Oh man, you haven't even hit the best parts yet! Except the parts with adorable little Ember, of course.

You flatter me so much, it makes my heart fill with joy. Prose and making it flow well isn't always easy for me. I can do dialogue well, but balancing it out with details and action have been tripping me up lately with any attempts I have had. That's why iyfelt so good to write something and really enjoy it, for it to flow so easily as this one did. Then again, "Elemental" did some leg work, giving me a frame to work with, but I don't care. It was fantastic to feel that creative flow again.

I would love to hear your thoughts of the movie once you finish. And if you decide to reread this, I'll admit, I'll be curious to know your thoughts since you'll have a comparison. Though be warned, I also skipped a lot and focused way more on the romance than the bigger theme of "Elemental" that focused on immigration/sacrifice/following your dreams vs. taking care of family and holding on to their values.

Definitely would love to share how I think of the fic after finishing the film! Something tells me I’ll enjoy and appreciate the fic even more afterwards!

:twilightsheepish: I just hope for everyone to see that everyone can do something well, and I love to let them know so they know that they can do well (way of paying it forward, when I’m someone that would’ve benefited from hearing that from someone else in the past). I wish I could write as good as you.

I relate to writing dialogue better than other parts of a story so much. It’s like you just read my thoughts. Glad to know I’m not alone in my plights. Don’t underplay your writing even with the template being from a movie. It’s still so amazing and works perfectly with Discord and Fluttershy (and I’m saying this before I’ve even seen the movie!) With the themes of forbidden love, longing, and whatnot (what I can pinpoint before I get more understanding of the details from the movie). Looking forward to see whatever else you may write! This was a perfect first impression of your work. No pressure, but if you can write this good, I’m sticking around to read some amazing stuff. :heart:

I actually love how the romance is the focus! Always love me some heartwarming romance that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Well, that was a long rant 😅.
Have an amazing day/night!

No problem, I was a little upset the story ended so quickly though, I wanted to hear more of the passionate moments.

Honestly, I think this concept could easily flesh out into something multi-chapter and includes all the themes (or shall I say elements? HA) of the movie. But I'm busy and when I'm not busy, I'm usually lazy. I really wanted to take the fervent inspiration and drive I had at that moment and go full-throttle and just have fun with it without making it a multi-chaptet thing that I'd fear I'd either 1) post it as I finish the chapters but lose steam and don't finish, or 2) write the whole thing over a long period of time and lose inspiration before I even post anything. I'm already struggling with a Beauty and the Beast fluttercord piece with several chapters done, none of them published. And technically I wrote the prologue of it YEARS ago! (And will I finish? The thing even has an outline, something I NEVER do, and I haven't worked on it in months. I should go back to it.)

I didn't want to give this story either of those fates. Instead, I took it and trimmed it and turned it into a one-shot that I hope was still a good time, even if it's a washed down version of all it could be.

But who knows? Perhaps someone more dedicated than I will still take that plunge!

I still haven't watched Elemental, but hearing you talk about it and reading this story has gotten me interested! I'll have to keep an eye out for a way to watch it...

Him mistaking her for a cat because she was too far away and she looked blurry to him made me laugh. Nearsighted Discord!

Oh, I ADORE that her parents don't judge her for loving Discord! How their concern is whether she'll be happy if she can never touch him!

Also, I love how she tried to lie about not loving him and break things off for his safety...But of course he knows her too well to fall for that.

And the description in the ending, with their magic perfectly balanced? That was beautiful.

You did a great job with this, especially writing so much so quickly!

Thank you so much, GeekCat! I didn't tell you about it since you didn't see the film that inspired it, but honestly, like I said, it's loosely based on it and definitely not a carbon copy. I skipped a lot and changed a lot of what did I take, but I definitely borrowed plenty of elements (Pun intended, I can't stop) to say it's based on it.

The cat thing was a random thought. I was writing and thought, "What if he DID notice her?" And l could see Fluttershy trying to hang out in a tree, sort of hiding herself but trying to get a good vantage point. But yeah... He's gonna call her "cat pony" now and never let her live it down.

The parents being so accepting is honestly more of a way to keep this a one-shot. I could have made it an issue, but ultimately I decided to have Fluttershy's family parallel a different one in the film, while placing Fluttershy in the predicament of a character with the OTHER family. Basically I mixed and matched and once you see "Elemental", that will make more sense.

Fluttershy can't fool anyone when it comes to her heart. I'm not sure what made her think she could in that scene. She felt desperate. But you know Discord won't let her get away with it!

I'm so glad everyone, especially you, likes the scene when they touched! I tried to make it as big and pivotal a moment as I could, since it was all leading to that. It's a pretty big metaphor for touching someone you connect with and care about, and I'm glad readers like you believe I did it justice.

Thank you again, GeekCat! I always love to hear your thoughts! You know I love and respect them so!
