Episode 522: What About Discord?
Written by Neal Dusedau
Twilight Sparkle might have a somewhat different range defining what constitutes fun to her, but her friends are fairly used to it by now. Spike should really expect it, even, what with how long he's been living with her. And she's self-conscious enough to be aware that few share some of her particular passions. Still, it's always nice when she can share that time with someone who cares. It's great practice for the next time she comes across an extra optimization for the library!
Did she ever catalog the way the books in the Castle of the Two Sisters were shelved? That sounds like quite an oversight if she hasn't!

The Cutie Re-Mark Pt. 2
Princess Twilight's efforts to stop Starlight from altering the past continue, but she fears that they may be in vain.
This is the first time I've looked at the synopsis for cutie re-mark
Not what I was expecting. Is it possible to
go back in time and prevent another ponys destiny from happening? Is Starlight going to go after all of Twilights friends or go for the princesses
How would you have felt if Twilight pulled a Moon Dancer, and cried during her rant at the end of this week's episode?
Would it have made the episode better?
I've been sorta drifting in and out of here mybad
Probably not. Moondancers crying was years of frustration and loneliness. Twilight's would have just been over discord being discord.
>Upon being transported to Equestria, you find yourself in the body of a handsome, virile, Zebra.
>You find yourself the object of much attention.
fuck wrong picture
I like how she's really grown fond of Pinkie in the recent seasons
why are they literally the perfect couple
they are the cutest 2 fillies, it just makes sense
Maybe writer wanted us to feel awkward so we can know how Twilight Sparkle might feel
>Learning lesson with every fiber of body
why are they literally the perfect couple
Please describe this character's personality.
I wouldn't mind an episode like that. She would have vacation away from the farm only for her to worry about AB or Big Mac screwing up the farm and wait, this already been done with that latest RarityXApplejack Episode.
she used to be my favorite
you just can't beat the dream team
i like the idea that sweetie brings out scoots' girly side
and Apple Bloom's
Sweetie is like the only girly girl of the group
scootabelle is the one constant throughout all of space and time
i just noticed that AB has an apple pattern on her costume
Misson: Keep all 3 fillies entertained and alive for the rest of the weekend
Hard mode: No molestation
>Hey Mr. Anon, what is this kid shit you got on your Netflix?
>You're such a fucking creep.
sometimes this show is pretty fun
although i wish she had shown more of a presence throughout the season
hey any time is a good time for pool and margaritas
I'll only put a little booze in theirs
this was more exciting to me than that time, it's a little more obvious so it can't just be a coincidence
But those are perfectly good reasons to like a good ol' pony. I agree, however, that they should make her interact more with the other main six.
That's sad, it's also a little funny how MLPG probably had more transformation art done for it than the TF General
She'll need that mane cut, though.
And no hats.
I liked this episode. It examined one of the little things about relationships I hadn't really thought of. This was certainly better than my expectations I guess the writer really did learn to improve from his previous effort.
The fucking YT comments were filled with cancer. 'Wah everyone was such an asshole'; 'I couldn't understand it'. If you think this is people being mean then you need your ass kicked. If you can't understand the plot and really think the inside jokes had to explained (some people were complaining about that) then you should call it quits you're braindead.
Would you still love your waifu if she had her mane cut?
I love all hairstyles, but short is an acquired taste(to me, anyway)
Ponies should have long flowing manes
Even the short cropped ones
I like all pinkies
Chickun barely has a mane
What if she had her everything cut?
Imagine oiling her down and having greasy, skin-on-skin cuddling?
>"Why are the digi-destined now called 'The Elements of harmony?'"
Rarity: Oh, pfft, they're not old, darling. They're vintage, and they're over there! I've even included my favorites by former Canterlot designer to the stars Rococo Froufrou!
Spike: Oh, I love her!
Spike: [laughs nervously] Both.
That's foul. Short should be for cute.
>Ready for our threesome tonight?
Celestia has charged you with eliminating the Changeling Hive in the Badlands.
As you cut your way through the changeling horde, you come across pregnant changelings. They're crying and begging for mercy.

But Anon, don't you want to impress her? Twilight's been reading a lot of dating books, and has expectations now.
>What kind of fertilizer have you had your nose in, Twilight?
Grab your tinfoil hats. Let's analyze this stuff.
Time travel was previously mentioned in Slice of Life, with Derpy and the Doctor. Back in season 2, Twilight used a time travel spell that allowed her to return to the past for about one minute (It's About Time). I would assume that Twilight would need a reference to the part in time she needed to return to.
If Starlight Glimmer needed a reference to the six's previous adventures, there's one dangling in the castle throne room now, where Starlight is seen in the preview clip.
We've had a whole bunch of episodes revolving around flashbacks. These are:
>Castle Sweet Castle (reminiscing about the Library and its associated memories)
>Appleoosa's Most Wanted (Troubleshoes had a flashback to his childhood)
>The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone (flashback to Gilda's childhood with Dash)
>Slice of Life (photos of Cranky and Matilda's reuniting, and their later adventures)
>Amending Fences (flashback to Twilight and Moon Dancer's childhoods, and the first episode)
>Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep? (Luna recalling her past as Nightmare Moon)
>Made in Manehattan (Coco's photo album of Charity Kindheart)
>Crusaders of the Lost Mark (series of flashbacks of the CMC's adventures)
Two of these episodes (Treasure and Manehattan) were both Map Quest episodes. We have one more of these on the way, being The Hooffields and McColts. And as far as these Map Quests have gone so far, they've both followed a specific theme:
>Problem and solution seem extremely obvious and simple at first (Griffonstone needs its idol back, park stage needs to be rebuilt), but later turn out to be part of a deeper, more complex social issue
>Pony A reunites with an old friend (Dash and Gilda, Rarity and Coco)
>Pony B does something that starts to repair a broken community (Pinkie fixes the recipe, Applejack builds the stage)
You've failed the test. She was testing your morality.
Celestia will petrify you at some point in the future, but she looks outwardly pleased for now. She will use you like a tool, because that's all you are to her. A tool with no critical thinking skills.
>"Okay anon, I'm going to magically teleport my fetus from my uterus into your colon."
>"Then you're going to shit it out while I watch and masturbate!"
Why would I want to impress Twilight?
This is a pony whose ideal vacation is resorting a library. My ideal library is an entirely digital and requires no physical sorting.
We can fuck if she wants, but I don't see a long term relationship working out. Which is why I'm bringing you along to Taco Bell.
Literally saved it.
When will she get her own episode? It's looong overdue.
>killing parasites is bad
Celestia's the one that failed the test.
>pony will never send you a package
>testing morality by sending someone out on a mission knowing full well they could be killing supposedly innocent creatures
uh huh, morality my ass
Twilight would have an existential crisis if she ever sees computer tech and the entirety of her library put on a microsd card smaller than a penny.
She's testing yours, not hers. Important to have your eyes on all the murderers in your realm. Those are the real threats.
>Wah everyone was such an asshole
You are an asshole, a hater, Hitler, jerk, douche, bigot, etc etc if someone felt bad. As long as they don't like it, people now take things personally and judge people accordingly, based on how they feel.
That's what they get for indiscriminately slaughtering little lovebugs.
Very funny, mom. I killed your stupid bugs, now give me the remote.
>Character's main trait is rhyming
>Episode where she doesn't speak
This is not the Zecora episode I want or need.
She couldn't cause she is so weak that she can't even handle the Smooze situation
In the two episodes where Starlight has been seen, she's been spying on Twilight: once when she was with Moon Dancer at dinner, and when Twilight was reminding Pinkie not to mess with time travel (which the two have experience with).
Then the CMCs. In both episodes where they played the lead, they were helping ponies rediscover their special talents. These were Appleloosa's Most Wanted and Crusaders of the Lost Mark. "There's so much more still left to learn about yourself. See the light that shines in you, we know you can be somepony else." During Starlight's breakdown in the second episode, she references individuality (and therefore cutie marks) as not just symbols of inequality, but of superiority. "You'd all still be living your miserable lives thinking you're better than everypony else!"
Her special talent might be that she's a pony of justice, fighting inequality and helping raise other ponies to be on equal footing, but her tragic past and misunderstand of her talent means she instead brings ponies DOWN to the same level.
So, current questions:
>How much does Starlight actually know about the main six, their lives, and their frends at this point? Will she cameo in the remaining two episodes? What if she's actually been in EVERY episode, and we've just missed her?
>Besides the main six, will other ponies be involved in stopping her, like the premier? I would suggest maybe ponies that have been helped so far (Gilda, Moon Dancer, Coco, etc.), but also the CMCs, who have the exact opposite belief system as her.
And here I thought you were cool.
Obviously I was wrong.
If Celestia was going to start genociding different species, let her start with these guys first.
I for one would like to see how changelings would integrate with the rest of society without an evil leader.
Kind of tired to analyze this properly but she probably knows a fair bit about them by now. At least he publicly known stuff. And I have to think everything's gotta be leading up to some big help by the end.
>Lunas pants sliding down off her hips.
and me marrying them both
Marrying 2 mares?
a good idea
I love it when people draw Dash with her hair falling down on both sides like that
she looks so pretty
1. I wish I can change how I look like, and how others as well.
2. I wish I can change people mentally, and alter their minds.
3. I wish I can change reality, to make everyone think these changes are natural and things have always been that way, besides me.
What should I turn Luna into?
other than an animation error, I don't think so
it should though, she looks so pretty with her mane flowing down both sides of her neck
>"Destroying a state owned weather facility? You must have me confused for some other pegasus."
True, that makes sense. I think it fell to both sides when she was flicking her mane in sleepless in ponyville
I'm also fond of when it's wavy like this going down her neck.
It's short but not scootaloo short
what if some are canon and some arent
what a cute pon
it depends on who else is gonna be in the relationship
Guys pls. It's simple.
Only the comics that are referenced in the show are 100% canon.
Everything else is EU stuff where the canon is ambiguous.
Hasbro has said before that everything pone is officially canon (which would include all the recolor toys, storybooks that contradict canon, Christmas, Equestria Girls, etc.), but it's one of those vague blanket statements used to avoid any backlash toward them over horse timelines.
The comics CAN'T be canon, otherwise this fucking OC is canon too (after the artist shoved it into Friends Forever #16).
The artist could bear having their OC's cameo be just some costume.
So shoved it in the background later on.
Oh I see.
>checks that OC tag
>tons of shipping art with Rarity
Uh. Well then.
i kind of wished she did
i've been in twilight's place so many times it's easy to feel depressed and a character expressing themselves through the same outlet I have would have made good closure
but that would have had to take more time, thus reducing the amount of time left for other parts of the episode- which I feel would have been detrimental to the feel of the episode. the buildup to that rant at the end needs to feel tedious and gradual, or else the the viewer is less empathetic towards twilight.
Exactly. Jenna's actually one of the more raunchier artists currently working for IDW. She was on a drinking panel at Nightmare Nights Dallas and basically spent the entire time talking about how she would do inappropriate things to ponies.
some people just take things so literally/follow leaders so perfectly that they'll do whatever shit you tell them
celestia should know this and her test is fundamentally flawed for not accounting for these factors
I wish I saved the full version of this.
Looks like it was a bit TOO lesbian and the artist deleted it from their deviantart account.
How do you think Shimmer is going to fuck up the timeline? If she just stops the Sonic Rainboom and prevents the main six from getting their cutie marks (specifically Twilight) then that'll just prevent the Elements from being available during Nightmare Moon, Discord and Tirek, so it'd screw her up too. I think she might try to replace Twilight as the Princess of Friendship.
>all of your friends you've ever had don't recognize you
>if you even try to explain the situation they'll automatically think you're crazy
The only solution I can see to that is Discord. He doesn't seem the type to have his memories changed easily.
Just checked. A lot of her stuff is there, but not that.
Already checked there, it's not.
But the six are working together to fix the timeline, according to the summary. And in Friendship Games, Twilight says "I was caught in this time travel loop".
So maybe the six are forced to relive certain key events but differently, looping over and over until they realize what's going on?
Say no. I dare you.
Nigga not everything is a reference.
Why isn't Applejack wearing any pants?
>the episode was literally about dank memes that twilight wasn't there for
>forced to relive certain key events but differently, looping over and over until they realize what's going on?
>Episode 525 – The Cutie Re-Mark Pt. 1
>Starlight Glimmer returns to seek vengeance on Twilight and her friends and has acquired a spell that could change the past, present, and future of Equestria forever.
>Episode 526 – The Cutie Re-Mark Pt. 2
>Princess Twilight's efforts to stop Starlight from altering the past continue, but she fears that they may be in vain.
>Princess Twilight's efforts
Doesn't sound like they're working together. Still possible I suppose.
The time travel mention in this episode feels like it was supposed to be foreshadowing. And considering Shimmer was hiding in a bush during...
Maybe someone could look through the whole season to see what scenes they can spot her in? Might give us an idea of what her plan might be.
>And considering Shimmer was hiding in a bush during...
When's she not deep in someones bush?
and then rara was a snake
You know it was a pretty nice episode. And it's so great that now all of them are finally friends with Discord, not just Fluttershy.
Now I just want to see a scene in the finale where Glimmer prevents Discord's redemption and they actually miss him when they see he's still a statue.
what sort of drunk is each of the mane six?
>Soarin’ gasped as Dash straddled his cock. She’d squeezed it with her thighs, jerking him off by flexing her thighs and ass repeatedly. She was humping his length, which stuck between her fat thighs and pushed out beneath her ass. Every time she humped him, grinding his girth along her marehood, her breasts bounced and smacked against her chest. Every thrust of his hips between her legs sent her ass wobbling, and his own shaft spasming with another burst of jizz.
It is in fact literally gross and there was a study that found our brains are less bothered by gross shit while we're horny. As soon as our brains aren't horny anymore our tolerance for gross shit goes right back down.
It makes me understand why there can be people literally not into sex out there. Their brains could just not raise their tolerance for that shit.
filly is very large
>Eating pony out when you suddenly "slip" and punch that ponut in with your tongue
i regularly have like 30 tabs of closeup female farts and cumfarts and japanese girls with milk enemas running around until they start shitting milk everywhere and things like that open and as soon as i cum i lose all appetite for it
but it always comes back
and so do i
But Dash loves it.
Pony casts a "want it need it" spell on her fartbox.
You cannot resist exorcising those farts with your mouth.
Goddammit I know you're a shitposter but that was unf
>Some poor stallion being hypnotized into wanting Twilight's scat,farts,piss and vomit
oh no i cannot help wanting you to fart in my mouth twilight it's so gross but i am hypnotized to want them
also i am jacking off while you unleash your stinky fury right in my face because i am hypnotized
>Did she ever catalog the way the books in the Castle of the Two Sisters were shelved?
I wonder what the ponies would think of
my genital piercings?
>"I don't think Ponies get your cutie marks, Anonymous."
>'Twist sure did.'
What about a calendar with 12 months of 30 days each, divided into 5 weeks of 6 days. At the end of each year there's an extra 5-day week, or a full six-day week on leap-years.
13 months of 28 days, divided into 4 weeks of 7 days. At the end of the year there's an extra day, two on leap years.
Six day weeks might be nice, because if you still made two of them "rest" days, you'd have a clean 2/3 of days are work days, and though it is more complicated than just an extra day, an extra week at the end of the year would be a cool holiday. Like super New Years.
I have touched myself many times today.
I don't see how this is ponies.
But the 13 month of 28 days is basically a Lunar Calendar.
Wanting a shorter work week is just asking for the US to turn into Yurop and get less shit done.
>tfw Ponk will never be replaced by Minuette one episode without warning and thereafter Ponk is never seen again
Okay, NOW it's ponies.
From a commentor on Derpibooru:
>Weeks are mentioned. I’m not sure they are specified as being 7 days, but Tuesday exists. The GGG is on the 21st of some month. The bit in the prophecy about the Mare in the Moon escaping in the thousandth year has been taken to mean that they number years from the Lunar Revolt.
They also make use of "moons" as a measurement of time but it's intentionally vague and seems to vary depending on plot convenience. Moons are less than years but longer than days. So they're essentially months. The lunar cycle and thus "moons" could be any length of time they want it to be since they control the cycle.
Hello, bourgeois! Did'ya ready for the friendship?
Never a day goes by in which I don't think of her
this is some pretty cheap childrens show level foreshadowing
how the fuck does a supervillain like starlight glimmer get around so easily unnoticed.
wouldnt celestia warn the entire kingdom and tell the local police to be on high alert
Hello my friens!
Дoлoй жoпoшницy, дa здpaвcтвyeт Лyннaя Pecпyбликa!
Бoжe, няши, oткyдa здecь cтoлькo извpaщeнцeв? He пopa ли нaвecти пopядoк?
A я жeлe!
Пaди пoдмoйcя, няшa!
We haven't seen her face yet.
Maybe's she's wearing a clever disguise
