Best pairing of the whole show, seriously! This episode made me laugh, but it also made me think. It´s normal that Discord was such a selfish and nearly evil being if he had been alone his entire life (and we are talking about centuries!). But, the first time someone shows love to him, well, he felt lost. You know, when you are used to hate and contempt, finding that somebody thinks that you´re important for him, and she even defends you in front of her own friends you don´t know how to react. I hope that from now on we´ll see Discord in the show more often than usual.
I really do not ship these two. But it is definitely amazing how the creators molded this all together. I hope it's not only me, But I found this episode to be a metaphor for Bronies and Haters becoming friends. Fluttershy was the one who took "Love and Tolerate" to her full capacity, unlike the others; and Discord was the troll who eventually became friends with the one who reached out to him.
Personally, I thought "Read It and Weep" was a take on that...first with Rainbow mocking Daring Do, then trying it out, then becoming addicted and trying to hide it from everyone because she thought it would make her less of a person.
That is also a good episode. However I meant the actual befriending of said Brony and Troll. That episode was a good metaphor for finding out you liked MLP even though you thought it was going to be the worst thing.
Loved this episode. Discord is a fun guy, I never really saw him as evil anyway he's just a Chaos Spirit, its in his nature to cause mischief, only difference is now he'll use his powers to help the ponies rather then hinder them, although he'll still most likely troll the heck out of em, cept flutes of course cause she's his PFF. But yeah nice to think Discord will be a reoccurring character now, even if his appearances will most likely be rare like Luna's.
Well John has said he enjoy's playing the character, the biggest problem is most likely the same one they have with Luna, finding a good way to fit them into a story with out if feeling forced. But yeah I would think Discord, like Luna will pop up at least once a season. Hopefullly *knock on wood*
