King of Chaos by C-Puff King of Chaos by C-Puff
"What are you doing now King of Chaos? What is this new act you seem to want to pursue? It is against your essence, against your inner nature. It is better to be true to yourself. To be who you are. That which is destructive, warping and cruel. A truly awful existence, completely detestable with nothing of merit or value. Be yourself Discord. This isn't the real you, and you should not try to be who you're not."


From a dream I had a week ago. It was... a very strange dream. But it had Discord in it so it was pretty awesome.
Copy pasted from my Journal:

I dreamt the 4th season of MLP started and the first episode focused entirely on Discord. The episode focused on his inner turmoil since, in the dream, he wasn't always a being of chaos but a pony, and was twisted in a being of destruction. And since he's decided to change that, more destructive and evil beings than him challenge his mindset, telling him things like he's running from his true nature... and his true nature is a truly awful, terrible thing to be and he's a terrible being for existing, but that he should embrace it, because he is a corrupted life form. He was in a swirling, shapeless cloud while they taunted him, confused about his own powers which are focused on warping and destroying and his new want to be a good person. In a later part of the dream, while travelling with allies, they're wandering through a labyrinth and get split up. The person with Discord says they're afraid for the other 2 people who might end up getting killed by the various traps in the maze, but Discord mentions he'd cast a spell of protection on them so they should be alright. When the 2 missing people rejoin them, joking and laughing, Discords companion scolds them, saying that Discord had to cast such a spell, something that was apparently bad since it goes against Discord's nature, and it was something he should not have been forced to do.

There was also a small bit about he and Celestia (who in the dream is older than him) were very close when they were young, but as Discord grew and embraced his chaotic nature, Celestia grew to resent him, and even now no longer holds any fondness for him. He doesn't wish to rekindle the relationship with her, but he regrets what had happened between them, and there's a painting he had which reminded him of when things were simpler, and they had a friendship together.

There was a lot of other awesome stuff including a giant indoor pool flooding with foam so there's no more up and down, hidden treasures in old castles over grown with thousands of tiny mushrooms and Discord's lair being a little house balanced rather impossibly on an extremely tall pole that you can only get to by flying (which Discord did a lot).


More than likely the beginning of Season 4 will sadly not be this epic :(

Have you ever just stared at a piece of artwork and just went... "how?"

And not that how as in like, what kind of drawing implements were used, but just "how".

Every time I've seen Discord on MLPFIM he's this sassy, goofy, kinda ugly 2D looking thing, but I feel like you just beautifully bring him to life in your pictures!! It's absolutely astonishing! :D

I am SO JELEAOUS that you were able to remember this much of your dream! I don't have as much success when I dream of something cool. This sounds like it would be an AMAZING story! I really hope you'll make a fanfic from this, it would be epic!

It would probably make a pretty good story XD but I don't know how I would write it to be honest.
Reply
:icondoctorwholovesthe80s:
Well, if you don't feel desire to write it, you shouldn't then. Stories should only be written if the person feels the creative passion. If they're forced, the story fails. No worries!

reminds me somewhat of www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9r_R1…
( Discordantly : discord Story )

 And the theory in which Starswirl the Bearded fucked up a spell and became Discord (i really don't like this theory, but, oh well... )

The link goes to a animated comic on Youtube : "Discordantly : Discord's Story", and goes a lot (if not totally) in line with your description of the relationship between him and Celestia and your epic fanart. It tells his story, thousand years ago, when things went horribly wrong.
 Maybe you'll like it, so i just wanted to share it

About your epic fanart : Discord seems mirror-reversed, all his parts should be on their other respective side. (that's not a huge issue, this guy is such a mess it's the kind of things no one notice). The lightning and atmosphere are really good.

Oh sweet! Thanks! :D I'm always looking for good Discord fanfics (It's.... surprisingly hard to find any).

and maybe he is XD;; I have a very hard time remembering what parts of him are on what side.... but then again being the king of chaos maybe I can get away with it. ;P

To an aching heart, beating within an unsettled soul... what IS truly his purpose?  His desire?
Now shown that there's more to life than mere chaos, will he take such a blessing or destroy it for his own blind-minded in disharmony?


...the answer is unknown, but for sure, I know that even a boisterous spirit like him cannot thrive without at least one being with him. Otherwise, he can't operate.  Chaos without a victim upon it can never hope to succeed.


Sorry... deep thoughts.  I believe Discord can be a good, loving character and even still keep his chaotic clownish ways.  He just needs the right ponies to guide him...  ;w;  ...like one of mine for instance
