Previous: 13 Discord Gala by vaiya   Next: PonyCord at the Gala
Twilight blinked as Princess Luna entered the ballroom. She’d arrived late after having to raise the moon for the night, so that wasn’t all that unexpected, but what was surprising was that the Princess seemed to be arriving with a strange stallion. A unicorn stallion that Twilight had never seen before.  She supposed it wasn’t all THAT strange that she’d never seen him before, since there were plenty of ponies in Canterlot she’d never met, especially after she’d moved to Ponyville, but if the stallion was with Luna, it did seem a little odd that she’d never even heard of him.
She glanced over in Princess Celestia’s direction, but the Equestria ruler was in the middle of a conversation with three other ponies and hadn’t noticed her sister’s arrival yet. Luna paused at the doorway, and once one of the guards noticed her, he announced her presence, loudly, to the entire ballroom. The dark princess smiled and bowed, then whi
 



Discord tries a few forms out, much to the irritation of Princess Celestia. And finally finds one. Hoorah!

With the exception of Starswirl, each ponyCord uses colors directly eyedropped from his draconequus form. No new colors used at all. The Starswirl is a nice tip of the hat to the 'Discord and Starswirl are the same' theory that's been floating around. While I really like the idea, and find it fun and amusing, it is not my headcanon, and won't be used more than this in my story. (Nope. Still not writing one.)

Discord's unoriginal cutie mark is the symbol for chaos.

My two favorite characters are Luna and Discord, but I don't think I ship them. Fluttershy and Bulk, however, have severely grown on me this last season......

I really don't mind if anyone wants to use any of these designs for pony Discord, so long as you give credit. Have at it.

Background is from here.


Characters are belonging to Hasbro, but art is mine.

Haha, you don't even KNOW how much I was giggling watching the Gala episode. I'm really glad I decided to post this (I almost didn't, and kept it to myself.)

I was a bit surprised they used the Moorcock Chaos Symbol on the show, since it's the generally the symbol of the kind of chaos that piles up the bodies & worse whether it's "Blood and Souls for Arioch!" or "Skulls for the Skull throne!".

They... didn't? I thought the pony Discord on the show had, like, a tornado cutie mark.

Really, why not go as a blank flank? It kind of fits Discord, never knowing what to do next.

Because it would draw too much attention to him, and that's exactly what Celestia doesn't want.

I understand it would draw attention. But there is not no such thing as an adult blank flank. I would consider myself one, not really sure what my talent is.

I never said he couldn't be one, nor did I imply they were impossible. But, the story would have been much more complicated were he to stay a blank flank. For the sake of a couple simple but funny strips, I gave him a cutie mark. Feel free to make a comic where he doesn't have one if you wish.

Haha! This is only a Lunacord fic if you want it to be. This could easily be just two ex-villains becoming friends through mutual understanding. Honestly, I haven't decided yet if I ship these two. But I do ship Fluttershy/Bulk Biceps. Way too cute.
