hello discord, what are you doing here

no seriously, how the hell did you even get hired


Part 1: lopoddity.deviantart.com/art/M…
Part 3: somewhere over the rainbow-NOTE: Comic currently on hiatus


    Oh my god. Part 2 is done. Where Part 1 was more of a quick gag, we are now getting to the meat of the story. Lots of exposition about Twilight's decision to turn the Castle of the Two Sisters into the Academy of Magic.(Bit of a retcon here, I initially had the Academy of Magic be in Canterlot, until a user here suggested a better location.)

    Comic making is exhausting. I wrote and rewrote those last few panels over and over. Should Twilight figure Discord out first, or should he reveal himself first?  In my first draft, back when the comic was called Twilight's Theory, Professor Chaos Theory said a lot of incriminating things to make her suspect his true identity, and the rest of the comic was her doggedly spying on him trying to reveal his secret. Bleh. I figured the sooner I revealed Discord, the sooner we could get to learning his intentions.

   I'm pretty proud of that last panel. I love drawing Discord all dragon-y looking. I've always sort of interpreted his character to be a sort of pony-Mephistopheles, and I feel he should always look at least a little imposing and crafty and vaguely sinister. I like the more recent Nice Guy Discord the show has given us, but personality-wise, I tend to write him a bit more as he is in Return of Harmony.
