'You Will Never Have To Be Alone...' *SPOILERS* by DolphinMoana 'You Will Never Have To Be Alone...' *SPOILERS* by DolphinMoana
Is that why you always hated friendship so much...? Because you never understood it, and lived over 1,000 years without ever knowing what it feels like? I'll admit, I was scared when I first met you. You were so confident and boisterous in who you were, and you didn't care who you were hurting. Then I told you I was your friend and you took advantage of that, and once again you used me against my friends. But I won't hold that against you... You've never had a friend, so you don't really know what it means to be one. And I understand that... I've taught you once, and I can teach you again. You've done horrible things, so have I. But what's a friendship without trials for friends to help each other through?

No one should ever have to live their life without knowing there's at least one person out there that loves them, that cares for them. Even if I'm the only one, I'll be that friend... I'll never give up on you, so all I ask is that you don't give up on yourself, or let yourself fall short. No one deserves to have to be alone all their life...

Not even you, Discord...


This episode seemed WAAY too short. But I guess that's what happens when you get engrossed in it. ;_; Sure, this episode may've had flaws like any of them, but WOW was it great to have Discord back. XD

I think was was the most endearing thing about this episode and this relationship was how shocked Discord seemed that he actually had someone around that cared for him (And I really wanted that near-tears shock reflected in this drawing). He came across as a lot more childlike, and he really seemed like a lonely creature for the first time since we've met him. I mean, yeah, we felt kinda bad when he got turned back to stone at the end of The Return of Harmony, but he CRIED in this one, man, when he realized he could lose the one pony who's ever believed in him. And it's really the first instance we've seen of him using his magic in not only a healing manner, but also a slow, methodic manner. He could've just snapped it all better, but no - for once he actually takes it slow, with his hands folded over his heart no less.

I really enjoyed this guy as a villain, but honestly, I think I love him even more now. :lol: He will more than likely still be a prankster and a rascal as long as he's around, but at least now he has a purpose in life beyond being a lawn decoration. XD Can't wait to see his next appearance. Season finale please??

And for the record, I do not consider this a shipping picture.

I actually wrote a short story about Fluttershy and Discord, explaining how they needed each other like family. Discord filled a void of lonliness for a family in Fluttershy's heart adnd Discord finally got a true friend and someone to take care of him. 

Story is in POV of Fluttershy's dreams for the most part

Feel free to read it here:…

(If interested - Its not a "ship" story, just family love.)

Can be used for when she forgives him in the season finale too :3

Discord basically is a child if you think about it. If you look at the "chaos" he makes it's very much what a child would come up with, such as cotton candy clouds, streets made of soap, rain as chocolate milk, etc. So he's not evil, he's just very much a child at heart. Being mischievous and a prankster, but also sweet and innocent. And I think the writers really captured that in the last two episodes of season 4. :D 

Great job on this Btw! And I love what you wrote down! Too sweet! ^^

Oh yes, I level with you there. XD I always described Discord as a kid who was getting WAY too carried away with playtime. Thus why Fluttershy was the perfect one to "tame" him. She's the most maternal of the Mane 6, and I guess somehow Celestia saw that all Discord needed was someone with the patience and kindness and eventual sternness of a mother. And there have been multiple times since when she pulls the mom look/voice and Discord is brought down a peg. :lol:

Thanks! :D

No...words...should have brought...a poet...

Seriously, though.  This is beautiful.  That whole episode I just wanted to give him a big hug.

That episode, as well as this pic, was incredible. It was a really touching episode, maybe one of the most dramatic ones, along with "Sleepless in Ponyville" or the second part of "The Chrystal Empire", specifically the part of the door, and itīs one of my favorites. It makes a lot of sense that Discord despised friendship if he had never experienced it. I guess that his lonely life was caused due to his aspect. Because, where do Draconequus come from? If there were more like him, maybe he wouldnīt be so evil. And I donīt think that more creatures as powerful as him can exist. In Equestria a lot of monsters exist, like manticores or dragons, but even them have somebody to be with. Discord didnīt even had that. I have another theory, which in summary explains that Discord loved once somepony and after she or he was gone, by one reason or another, Discord felt abandoned and lost his trust with everybody. And after being treated as a monster, he became one, seeing that the world where he lived could only give him pain, so he changed it to make it better in his way, and by the way, to have revenge of the ponies who had hurt him.
