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.
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.
