Fluttershy's heavy eyes struggled to open as sunlight beamed through her window and spilled onto her face. She didn't even have time to stretch before she saw Discord's wild grinning face.

"Howdy doo!"


The yellow pegasus pony fell to the floor below, frightened by his sudden appearance.

"Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to scare you." He apologized as he helped her back into bed.

"Um...how did you get into my house?"

"It was really easy, the door was unlocked. Well, not the door, but the window. Yep, just walked right in. In fact, I've been standing here watching you sleep for almost two hours. Did you know that you don't really snore? You just make a little high-pitched whistling sound out of your nose. It's really cute, actually. But I've really come to make you…"

He snapped his fingers on his lion hand, and a big tray appeared in Fluttershy's lap, filled with all sorts of food.

"…breakfast in bed! Fit for a queen!"

"Aw, thank you, Discord. You didn't have to."

"We're friends, remember? It's what we do."

Angel woke up from his slumber and saw Discord standing over Fluttershy. He jumped up to protect her and clawed Discord's face.


"Angel! Don't be rude. I told you, Discord has changed. Sorry about him."

"Oh, it's alright. I know I caused him quite a bit of torment when I was all chaotic and jazz."

He snapped his fingers, and the cut disappeared. A discouraged Angel stomped off to watch TV.

"So…I've got quite a day planned for us as best friends!"

"Like what?" Fluttershy asked as she chewed some toast.

Discord poofed a checklist up from thin air and unfolded it so it stretched all the way across the room.

"Oh, my."

"Yep! First, I thought we'd go to the beach. You like the beach, right?"

"Of course."

"Wonderful! Next, you know that amusement park in Manehattan?"

"Manehattan? That's so far away."

"Oh, I'll use a teleportation spell. In fact, on this list, I've marked the most fun things in red."

"Everything's in red."

"Yeah, I know!"

"Well…I kind of had an appointment with Pinkie Pie. She needs me to-"

"Oh…I see…Well, I'll just go back to the stony lonesome, where I belong."

He poofed himself up a jail and a prison outfit.

"A lonely guy like me doesn't deserve a kind mare like you. Helping out your pony friends and all."

"Oh, nonsense, Discord. You're not a lonely guy. Of course, I'll go with you."


He poofed himself out.

"Um…before we go, I have to feed my critters."

"Already taken care of."

"Aw, you're such a sweetie."

"Now, you just finish your breakfast and come out when you feel like it."


Fluttershy and Discord were at the beach, walking along the ocean front. The tide came in and almost swept the pony away, but Discord helped her back to her feet. She kind of blushed as two ponies ran away at the sight of Discord.

The two were at the amusement park, and Discord convinced Fluttershy to ride the roller coaster. He practically had to drag her on, she was so frightened.

"Come on, I promise you'll like it."

The ride started, and Fluttershy was breathing heavy. As the car ascended the hill that led to the top, she became even more nervous.

"I won't let anything happen to you, okay?"

The air was eerily still at the top of the coaster, and they were above the cloud bank. The only sound was Fluttershy's heartbeat. The cart descended, and Discord put his two different hands in the air.

The pictures afterward showed Fluttershy's hair backwards. She was screaming and gripping onto the car with all her might for safety as Discord put one arm around her and his other one in the air.

At the end of the day, they were just staring up at the night sky in Fluttershy's yard.

"Look at all those stars. Princess Luna really did a good job tonight," Fluttershy commented.

"I know, not that many ponies appreciate her work. She is an artist."


The two were just lying there, looking up at the cosmos, when a quick white streak appeared.

"Oh, a shooting star. Make a wish."

The two closed their eyes.

"What did you wish for?" asked Discord.

"You're not supposed to tell," replied Fluttershy with a grin.

"Well, you can tell me. We're friends."

"Well….okay. I wished…for us to be friends forever."

Discord smiled and hugged her close. She hugged him back.

"Oh, I KNEW IT!"

Pinkie was behind a bush, spying on them both with binoculars.

"Fluttershy blew me off to hang out with DISCORD! That dirty rat…psychofink!"

She was eating cupcakes as she talked to herself.

"Hold on, Pinkie. Maybe it's not her fault and Discord has her under a spell or something. No, it can't be that because he's good now. You even made him Pinkie promise. Maybe…maybe she just doesn't like me any more. Come on, Pinkie. You're being weird. The point is, Fluttershy blew off our cupcake appointment, and you've got to do something about it. Well, I am! I am gonna show her and that dirty…nerf herder!
