Family

I simply love what the comics have done with Discord, Fluttershy and the Cutie Mark Crusaders. In a way, I think they are Discord's surrogate family. I see him in a fun uncle role, with Fluttershy as his mate and the caring aunt that keeps him balanced, and the Cutie Mark Crusaders are his surrogate daughters or nieces. They're closer to Discord than anyone else and he loves them and can't bear to lose them. 

Why can't we see this in the show?? It's adorable! Applebloom,sweetiebelle and scootaloo (ahh!)#2 plz

First of all, I love the lighting in this piece. It looks as if they're wandering home after a long day of adventure in the sunset. It's really atmospheric and reminds me of Indiana Jones.

There is also a lot of movement and action in the scene. It doesn't look like a static image, but instead a frame of something that is actually happening in the present. Discord is stepping forward and the Cutie Mark Crusaders are still full of energy. This contrasts with Fluttershy's tired yet peaceful body language.

It's just really heartwarming overall, and it grabbed me immediately when I first saw it.

The colours you use are very soft, yet still convey mood beautifully. Very unique artwork.

Wow, thank you so much! I'm so glad the movement came across. Your comments are too kind! 

I still think I need to edit Sweetie Belle a little :P, but your comments have given me more confidence! DEADPOOL - Happy Valentines Day! - Icon GIF

I’m still in the process of reading the comics and I have yet to see Season 9 of the show, but this picture and the concept behind it is great. Deep down, I think Discord just wants to feel he belongs somewhere. I absolutely love the colors and the lighting you used to create this piece. :heart:

I love it too :D If only the ones who write the tv series and the ones that write the comics were the same... or at least agreed on things...
Beautiful picture :D

Thank you! :D

Yeah I'm not sure what to think with the comic timelines because the creators of the series have said different things. I've heard "it's canon until the series contradicts it," "it's not canon" and "the comics are doing their own thing."

Can't make head or tail of that!

Yourwelcome :D

When writing fanfics, I try to combine them, with... mixed results.

I would love to see that too! It's #9 on my Season 6 Wishlist:

It would be so much better to see this in the show and it would also help to make the comic haters shut up.

I love your theory about how they are Discord's surrogate family. Discord seemed all alone in the world until Fluttershy found him. 

This picture is just lovely and heartwarming. Fluttershy (talking,laughing) plz

Thank you so much! 

Yeah that's pretty much my headcanon with these five. :) Apple Bloom Emote Scootaloo Emote Sweetie Belle Emote :fluttershy: Discord

You're welcome!

I may have to critique this...

Yeah. I love those two comics with Discord and the CMCs. But now that the CMCs got their marks I just wonder how Discord have reacted to this event. In one episode in a near future perhaps.

BEautiful work
PraysForAPrankster's avatar
Thank you so much!

I'd just like to see more interaction between Discord and the CMCs in general! They haven't really bonded much in the show the way they have in the comics, which is a shame because think of all the mischief they'd cause together! 
cajobif's avatar
Yeah. There are elements in the comic we would die to see in the actual show. That's one of them. And Luna's pet perhaps.

And just how exactly Zecora seems to know Discord.

Thank you, I love how it came out!  :aww:

And yeah, I feel the same way about how the comics have handled it.
