Keep Calm, Pinkie by ArtisteFish Keep Calm, Pinkie by ArtisteFish
A little (humanized) tribute to the newest episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, focusing on Pinkie Pie

I couldn't hep but notice that Pinkie Pie seemed rather... out of spirits in this episode. I mean, obviously everyone was pretty on edge the whole episode cuz of Discord, but even when he first showed up in season 2 she still didn't seem very scared of him or all that worried. She laughed at his weird antics, she laughed about being turned gray (and turned UNHAPPY) and she even took a moment before he was sealed in stone to enjoy the chocolate rain one more time.

Don't get me wrong - I thoroughly enjoyed the new episode.
But I was surprised Pinkie wasn't a little more... excited about the prospect of being the friend of someone who could make chocolate rain (even if it didn't originally include dollops of whipped cream).

And I ship Pinkie and Discord, but that's beside the point. :meow:

I tend to like the idea that Pinkie wanted to be the one to reform Discord, and couldn't really understand why she didn't get to do that and didn't end up being his first friend.
Really though, I still think they have plenty of time to become BFF's. I bet he'd enjoy her parties. ;)

Oh gosh, this is exactly how I felt when I watched the episode. I was like....wait, wouldn't Pinkie Pie really be his first friend? I mean they got along rather while during the chaos. And yea, they down played her a lot, all the wackiness that went on during the tea party, I was really expecting Pinkie Pie to "enjoy" the tea party. I don't know why she didn't enjoy it, maybe it was because she was too worried for Fluttershy to enjoy the tea. During the pranking Pinkie/Dash did, Pinkie made sure not to prank Fluttershy. 

And it really did break my heart when my bro suddenly went "Flutter/Discord 4 Life!!" after the episode. It was pretty obvious that he was rooting that to happen after only the preview of the episode cuz we had a conversation about Discord.  

And yea Pinkie Pie probably wouldn't be the best to reform Discord, she and Discord are explosive. They would have too much fun, lol. He would be like Gilda and take his pranks a little too far and Fluttershy probably needed to teach him that....teach him to be like Pinkie Pie with her pranks and all. He probably would laugh at Pinkie at the wrong time, not reading the situation and make her cry. Fluttershy, although would cry too but she knows how to stand up when it's wrong. Like the episode with Fluttershy became a bully-ish made Pinkie/Rarity cry of course if she would had done that with the other girls, they probably wouldn't stand for it, there defiantly been some bad blood happening.   

I really was expecting some Pinkie/Discord moments, I even still holding on till the last moments of the episode, lol. So yea...I am not a Flutter/Discord fan.

"And I ship Pinkie and Discord, but that's beside the point."

I'm pretty sure that is the entire point entirely.

I like your design for human Discord a lot. =D And I think I agree with you about your theories for Pinkie Pie's feelings about this episode. It's a good explanation.

Thanks!! :)

Besides the sheer lunacy of reforming chaos incarnate, all I can figure for this ep is that placing Discord with Pinkie for his 'trial period' would've been less civilizing, more 'white phosphorous + gasoline'. And really, even post-Fluttershy I'd want a three-minute head-start to sprint outta range before those two made with the party-brainstorming ("Flying snakes-in-a-can that spit gummi-roaches-no, maple syrup!" "Ooh, good one....").

Anyhow, Glum!Pinkie is nicely-rendered indeed, and your Humancord makes suspenders work.
ArtisteFish Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Student Filmographer
Heheh, I totally agree. XD As much as I love the idea of them together, there would probably have to be some *serious* restrictions on Discord's power. I don't know if I trust his self control. ;P
geekspace Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013
Your mistrust seems rather well-founded. On the other hand, I kinda doubt he'd take to such wards/seals/whatnot all that well if Twilight/Celestia/whomever just tried slappin 'em on prison-warden style. Which seems to be where buttering-up via the Six's more empathic types comes in.
Mellamew Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013
He even tried to take her ice skating, which is what I bet was his and Pinkie's first date. o;
Bjarru Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Yeah, I agree with you. It seemed that they just badly needed Fluttershy to be the only one who doesn't mind Discord. Pinkie Pie's reasons to hate him seemed... a bit exaggerated
ArtisteFish Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Student Filmographer
Definately! And thanks for the compliment! :)

I read a great fanfic where the reason Celestia didn't have Pinkie reform Discord is that she loved him the way he was, and didn't think there was anything wrong with him. Terefore, she wouldn't reform him correctly because he thought he was fine the way he was.
(DiscoPie is my OTP... that and AppleDash)
ArtisteFish Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Student Filmographer
Heh, I think I read that one too, and I do really like that idea!! :)

It's on deviantart, it's called "a dollop of chaos."
HareTrinity Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah... I didn't like the ep myself, and 2 of my big problems were that:
(a) They toned down Fluttershy's Discord-hate. She was angry enough to out-fly Rainbow Dash at the mention of Discord by the end of RoH, and she was the most consistently glaring during the banishment scene. I've heard "she doesn't hold longterm grudges" offered as an explanation but to me it lost something interesting.
(b) They played down the other mane 6's surprisingly lack of grudge! Twilight and Discord talked a lot in RoH (it was kind of a Picard/Q vibe, I liked it), and of course Pinkie's general enjoyment of his chaos... Mneh.

I'd have rather seen Pinkie and/or Dash do the reforming (since they're pranksters and thus have something to actually do together with Discord). Or all of the mane 6 as a group effort. Or everypony BUT Fluttershy until right at the end.

Ah well. What's done is done. :shrug:

As for headcanon, well. Maybe Pinkie really did want her lover Discord to supply more whipped cream. ;)
ArtisteFish Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013  Student Filmographer
I totally see what you're saying. And I noticed the same thing with how mad Fluttershy was in that episode too! When I watched "Flutter on" again I did find it weird that she was so okay with befriending Discord... but I guess that's kind of her 'job' on the show.
Oh, and I enjoyed the Picard/Q vibe as well!!! :meow:

But I probably think about these episodes too much... I really don't know what thoughts go into the making of them.
Like you said, what's done is done.

And thanks for the comment! :)

LOVELY STYLE! Despite I always imagined Discord being kinda old, I really love your humanizations of them!
And yeah, obviously I agree with you about the episode. Pinkie was not hyper enough, not herself at all. But you already know my take on that, so... yeah :D
Amazing work! *faves*

The feels, the FEELS.

Nice man!

I love this! It made me so upset that Pinkie wasn't the one picked to reform Dizzy :(

Awwww... I ship DiscoPie too, and... yeah. I like how you pulled this off.
