Darn, I ran out of pony again. I’m trying to practice drawing humans. Hmm, I guess this means I can practice more Equestria Girls.
Also, I’m slowly updating my Flash fanfic, but I have absolutely NO IDEA when the whole thing will be finished. Such is the life of a mere hobbyist.
The Return of Nightmarity.
I’M SORRY I KEPT MEANING TO REPLY BUT WAS A DUMB AND DIDN’T
- Why I like them
Everything about him fascinates me. He’s one of those characters where you can just pick them to pieces and STILL find new aspects you hadn’t really thought about. I love people’s theories and ideas; they can be so weird and diverse and still work for him, to explain different aspects of his rather strange personality. There’s a lot to work with from surprisingly little.
Plus his DESIGN oh gosh. It shouldn’t work but somehow it DOES. And the way they animate him is just memorizing to me. I can just watch him move and interact with his environment with no sound at all and I can still adore his performance.
and his voice oh man oh gosh he’s gosh such a fab voice i am so HAPPY they got de lancie to portray him because nobody else could do him justice
- Why I don’t
He’s been a little one-note in the newer episodes, but honestly it’s not a huge deal to me (I can OBVIOUSLY still find things about those episodes and his performances that are super great and interesting and probably much deeper than the writers intended) so long as there’s a bit more development outside of the asshole that pops in, messes everything up, and waltzes out.
- Favorite episode (scene if movie)
In terms of characterization/writing, “Return to Harmony”. But “Keep Calm and Flutter On” is more appealing to me on a sentimental and emotional level. I can watch it over and over. The dialog’s great, the gags are perfect, and I just love everything about it.
- Favorite season/movie
Season 4 since he’s being featured so prominently and it makes me so HAPPY. <3
- Favorite line
"Did you miss me, Celestia? I missed you. It’s quite lonely being imprisoned in stone—but you wouldn’t know that, would you? Because I don’t turn ponies into stone.”
Like holy shit where to even START. So much of my headcanon and character analysis came from these lines alone (and as I’ve mentioned, insta-OTP feels like WHOA). Everything we need to know about Discord is conveyed in this set of lines: he’s coy, perhaps even a touch flirtatious, he’s intimidating but in an off-hand kind of way, he loves to provoke others to enjoy their reaction, he doesn’t take things too seriously, and he is very very angry. But he can’t even properly express that anger, not outright. He hides basically every negative emotion behind a laugh and a facade of amusement. Makes one wonder just how many emotions he’s learned to cover up like that. And where the hell he learned to do that to start with. Basically Discord is the king of ISSUES but he’s also funny as hell and ughh it intrigues me deeply. And there’s the subtle implication that he might be Chaos incarnated, but even he has standards and is a bit insulted those standards were under-minded. People seem to forget his game had rules and the rules obviously matter to him.
That is how you establish your villain correctly.
- Favorite outfit
ooh bby you can serve me dinner any time
- Head Canon
I have this really sad headcanon going where he messed things up so bad with Celestia that, because he’s utterly incapable of ever APOLOGIZING and admitting the things he did were wrong, he’s basically building Twilight up to be “new Celestia”. Pretty much he’s projecting all his feelings and desires on to her in hopes of getting another shot at a happy relationship, without having to ever deal with the repercussions of just how badly he hurt Celestia. It will fail. He will be hurt. And hopefully he will grow from it (I hiiiighly doubt the show will go this route like even a little bit but it’s a fun scenario to muse on all the same).
- Unpopular opinion
I think it’s really silly how people want him to just be a villain and nothing else. Like theories about how he’s gonna BETRAY EVERYONE AND IS JUST MANIPULATING FLUTTERSHY just make me roll my eyes. It’s fine if you prefer him as being evil, but oiiii vey can we come up with more creative plot threads and character arcs for Discord than “LOL J/K GUYS I’M STILL EVIL”.
- A wish
CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT PLEASE
- An oh-god-please-dont-ever-happen
Discord never changing ever at all and just always being a jerk-off. Or being turned back to stone.
- 5 words to best describe them
Egocentric, manipulative, clever, immature, grandiose.
