So why is Discord afraid of needles?

Really great, updates are slow but one of my favorite stories on this site only updates about once a year so hears hoping this is just as good. Speaking of which its that time of year to bug them for a bit. :P

I'm so happy you updated. This is one of my favourite stories. I really enjoyed reading this chapter. :)

Hm, I wonder if Discord antagonizing Twi like that is boredom, force of habit, or if he's still getting some sort of boost from the disharmony he's causing? I mean, a magical boost, not just enjoying being able to push Twi's buttons, Last Draconequus made it seem like it was more a literal magic boost, than just feeling better because you saw something that amused you...
Either way, another lovely chapter. Spike and Cadance's conversation was interesting regardless of the fact that I don't quite see how it fits into the plot of this story. *strokes nonexistent beard* Though I suppose it does fit in thematic sense, so nevermind.
AJ and Rarity trying to give Flutters the runaround was amusing, and Zecora is Zecora. Fun to read, and a her comebacks are witty, but there's that niggling voice wondering if her rhyming is a good sort of challenge to write or a bad one. XP
The mystery becomes clearer! The tatzlwurms are gigantic, and got to be so by paralyzing their magic-dependant prey (ie everything they come across in a high-magic world like Equestria) and then eating them. And absorbing the prey's magic? Like, adding to their pile of magic instead of using it up? *shrugs*
Pinkie turned into quite the little seer of doom today, didn't she? XP Oops, I mean, seer of worse things that could be happening but aren't. ;)

I love Cadance in this.
It's weird, I always think of her name as 'Candace', which is likely the point. Taking a word used for a rhythm and meter, cadence, which can be used to describe a horse galloping, and making it a sort of musical pretty name is very MLP-punny. I'm remembering how much I love that show. I used to watch it all the time (in my mid twenties. There's not really a word for a female bronie) but I didn't ever see the last season with Twilight's Coronation or whatever it was. I just know it happened.
Where would you put the main characters on the human age scale? Assuming Fluttershy, Dash, Pinkie, Twilight, Applejack, and Rarity are the same age, because it just feels that way. They have their own jobs, Rarity has a business, a couple still live with their parents, but in an agrarian society, that's normal, and currency beyond bartering isn't really a thing, so it's like, they're obviously out of school, but seem too young to be, due to their maturity levels.
Then again, growing up in a farm town with magic doesn't jive either, so school might just be until they learn to read and write, simple mathematics, and know the basics of history and culture - somewhere to what we think of as the 'tween' level, and anything else is specialized and up to them (dressmaking, baking, print media, tending the family farm, tending almost-non-sapient animals, ...flying...really fast? That's not a job, that's like you're either on call for weather disasters or make it onto that sports team, which it's clear most don't, otherwise, I'm not counting it. It's weird, there are only like one or two Pegasus-only oriented jobs in Ponyville, I think Rainbow Dash has a Peter Pan syndrome and doesn't want to learn an 'uncool' skill, so she only does those lol). It confuses me, but it's a kid's show, and I'm sure my mind could be better used elsewhere, but since it disagrees I'm stuck thinking about this. Maybe 17-22ish? Is there even a way to compare their responsibilities to human adult responsibilities? Twilight is Shining Armor's little sister, and Applejack has an older brother, Mac, AND a little sister, which means the older ones are probably no later than mid-20's, using human timelines.
I don't know.
That seems like a nonsequitur, and I suppose it was. I was just thinking that Twilight Sparkle is a grown, educated Alicorn, but can't handle two adult... *whatevers* bickering about fairly tame BDSM lol. Usually the curious ones who read all the time are curious about that kind of thing, too. But then, it was basically her 'sister' and an ancient lion-pony-eagle-(goat?wtf-sure-why-not-goat)-dragon-thing talking about it, then bringing her best friends into it . So in that light, it's a justifiable reaction.
Cadance IS a troll lol, she obviously only said that to get Twilight worked up. A treasure of a troll, I say. I bet Discord loves it, even if he is sick. Well, he's obviously a little sick all the time, so I mean 'ill'... No, wait. I mean, 'has caught an exhausting physical malady.' From plant things that are fuzzy and probably shouldn't really exist, or be that large, or carry diseases. Chaos magic, you know, amirite?
It's funny that having seen a kid grow up, the way Cadance has with Twilight - even grow up to be an Alicorn - makes it more fun to make them embarrassed haha. Oh, the joys of family.
It's also always entertaining when someone *could* tell Twilight something she's fascinated with and feels like she needs to know (even though she's just curious and it's hardly an emergency) but won't. And she can't do anything about it, because someone's personal history isn't her business, so her curiosity isn't as important as Discord's personal memories of Starswirl, so not telling her anything would be annoying but also totally justifiable.
I've noticed in human culture, this tabloid society with Instagram and blogs and Twitter and Facebook and everything, people seem like they think they have a *right* to other's personal lives that have nothing to do with them. No one should have to tell anyone anything. And I can just imagine Discord going to that exhibit with them and scoffing about what they got wrong or laughing remembering something while looking at certain parts, but refusing to explain it, just for the fun of poking at Twilight lol. Which is what I would do if I were him. He's super old, he knows so much, I'd do it *constantly* haha. Just dropping enough hints to make her crazy curious then shrugging her questions off.
I think the best moment here was Discord talking to the rock. Bob? He named it? Or it HAD a name? And an uncle? Or he's just being crazy for fun, maybe. Or he's hallucinating from exhaustion and fever.
Anyway. I write rambling reviews. Sorry. Uh, good job.
I always mean to say that, then his happens.
Also, I've been reading your Q fics, and love them, here and at AO3, but reviewing all that here would be annoying, probably. But I want to know what happens to smuggler Q. And 'working in groups' Q. And Q and his Vulcan teacher/body guard/ fired therapist. If I got any of those mixed up, I apologize.
While I'm at it, heck, what about Discord being rescued from sadistic ponies? because that's a cliffhanger. I have weak upper body strength. I'm not great at hanging from cliffs. Help a sister out here. ;)
Oh. I got distracted again. I should probably read the rest of this story. Thanks!

This story is really awesome. Seriously. You write the characters perfectly. Please write more soon!

You've stayed in character! You've stayed in Cannon! I LOVE IT.
Please, will there be more? And soon!? :}
| Animekitty47 chapter 3 . 4/6/2014
This was a good fic before and PInkie's bit just makes it awesome. :D
You write her so well, off topic and very random _ but not infantile :0 and with a joke somewhere in it. :D
And you actually closed the plot hole of why Pinkie let Discord distract her so very easily! Once you say it, it seems so obvious! XD
You and your fandom references, I saw a Lyra one this time. It's like playing I Spy with you. More awesomeness. And analysis. *pokes AJ*
And a nice break from Elements of Opposition. I admit, when I saw the update was for this story I was a little sad. That latest chapter... *shudder* But, Pinkie and Discord were hilarious and fascinating together. The break was very refreshing indeed. So congrats on spreading happiness. Pinkie should give you a cupcake.
Anyway, interesting and well handled as your DiscordxTwi theme (plotline? idea?) was in the earlier chapters, I like this chapter best. XD I guess I'm just a Fluttercord fan at heart. XP Although...if alicorns are essentially immortal, unlike other ponies...*grins* *blinks* Oh, um, anyway, marvelous job with Pinkie. *waves* *starts to leave*
Update Elements of Opposition soon? *puppy dog eyes* Please?

The Discord and Cadance interactions were one of my favorite things in "Three's A Crowd". Happy to see it happening here too! :D
