What About Discord

Didn't we just shelve all the books in the library a few months ago? Yes, but that was because we needed to! This is just because I want to! I call it my 'booksort-cation'! Three uninterrupted days of reorganizing books.
Can you think of anything more relaxing? Well, claw massages, back rubs, bubble baths You weren't really looking for an answer, were you? I've even devised a better system for organizing them! It decreases the amount of time it takes to find the book you're looking for by nearly three quarters of a second! Whoa.
That much? Look at them all! Why, there must be at least twenty thousand books to organize! Best long weekend ever! I'm sure we can make some time for a claw massage and a back rub too.
Yes! Best long weekend ever! Whoa! That strange yellow orb in the sky! What is that? All right all right, so it's been a little while since we've seen the sun.
A little while? We've been in that library for three straight days! Yes, but they were three very productive days! Even if you did take that two-hour claw massage break.
Hey, you promise a claw massage, I'm getting a claw massage.
It's not like we missed anything.
Hello, Twilight! Hi, Spike! Hi, Rainbow Dash.
Good to see you, Discord.
Did you rehearse before you found us? What makes you think we practiced? Come on, Rainbow Dash.
What's going on here? Sorry.
Me and Discord are just messin' around.
Like we do.
Since when? Oh, Twilight.
We simply had a momentous time together these past three days.
You could say it was hiss-terical! Sneaky snake! Just snaking around! Good one, Discord! It is? Kind of an inside joke from this weekend.
You wouldn't really get it unless you were there.
Oh.
Okay! Cool, well, uh, catch you later, Twilight! Catch you later, Twilight.
That was strange, right? Since when have Rainbow Dash and Discord had inside jokes? Since sometime in the last three days, I guess.
Hey! Nopony made you join me on my booksort-cation.
I'm jokin', I'm jokin'! Rarity? Twilight, you've returned from your book sorting sabbatical! All that organizing has done wonders for your complexion! Thanks! It was very relaxing.
And we were able to clear a shelf for those old-fashioned books you wanted to donate! Oh, pfft, they're not old, darling, they're vintage, and they're over there! I've even included my favorites by former Canterlot designer to the stars Rococo Froufrou! Oh, I love her! Him.
Both.
Twilight! This makes twice I'm seeing you in one day! Aren't I lucky? Weren't you just with- Hi Twilight! Hi Spike! How was your booksort-cation? It was good! Orange you glad you did it? Orange you You're a card! Oh, please.
You'll make me blush.
You do seem to be turning a shade of- orange! Oh, sorry darling, you see we were at Sweet Apple Acres, and, uh, ooh, how to explain Well, let me try and paint her a picture, dearest.
Dearest? You see, we were all at Sweet Apple Acres, and I ended up turning the trees into the most- Oh, who am I kidding? I simply can't do it justice.
You really had to be there.
We would've invited you to come along too, but we didn't want to interrupt your organizing.
We know how important it is to you.
And I'm sure it was much more important than the fun that we had, haha.
I appreciate that Speaking of books, I should get these on the shelves.
Hmm.
Rainbow Dash bonding with Discord, Rarity finding something he did genuinely funny? Must've been some weekend.
Somepony sorry she missed it? Of course not.
What's got you two in hysterics? Oh, we were just reminiscing about the best weekend ever! He's everywhere today, isn't he? Oh, now where was I? Ah yes, we had just finished our soup, "and then Applejack said," ' Peanut butter hoof? Yuck, not even with jelly!' Eh, I don't get it.
It was hilarious! I wish we'd taken a picture for you! Oh, well this should do! I guess that's funny? Well, seems this has become quite the sticky situation! Sticky situation! Aw, shucks Twilight, we haven't even asked how your weekend went! It was fine! And yet you look so glum.
Does somepony need a huggy-wuggy? I am not glum, I'm glad! I'm glad you all had such a good time together.
Having inside jokes can really create a lasting bond between friends! I'm just sorry that all this bonding happened while you were holed up in your castle.
Heh.
Oh, don't you worry about Twilight.
Bet you were in hog heaven organizin' all them books! Again.
I'm sure I had just as much fun as the rest of you! I can't believe I missed out on all that bonding! I knew it, you are jealous! Spike, I'm the Princess of Friendship, I don't get jealous.
I'm sorry I missed out because sharing that experience would've helped me with my Princess of Friendship duties! Come again? If our friends could enjoy three full days with Discord that much, it must have had something to do with the specific things they did together! If we can find out what those things were, it could be a real breakthrough in the science of friendship! Oh, I guess so.
I know so! You thought our booksort-cation was fun? This is gonna be even better! Thank you for coming.
I wouldn't have asked you here if it wasn't important! I love important! I want to know how these funny moments you shared came to pass.
I can use this data to help advance friendships all over Equestria! Well, I like the sound of that! Perfect.
Let's start with the snake.
I don't know if I can get it out! It's too funny! Oh but we must, it's for the greater good! It started when we were helping Granny Smith with her garden Ah, I reckon you mean my sister Apple Bloom.
Eh All you Apples look the same.
And then Rainbow Dash saw a snake! I think it was a garden hose.
It was a hose snake.
Super deadly.
I recall it bein' a large stick that looked like a hose that, in turn, did in fact resemble a snake.
Point is, we galloped away.
And it chased after us! The hose? A snake? A stick? A snake! - A hose! - A stick! We literally trotted for our lives.
Isn't that hilarious? I guess you had to be there.
I do need to be there.
But you weren't! And it's already happened! Ooh, are you suggesting Time travel?! Absolutely not.
Time travel is not something to be messed with.
We simply need to recreate everything that led to these jokes.
Oh, what a brilliant idea! Shall we begin with the lunch date that kicked off the glorious weekend you missed out on? Are you sure it was this table? Uh, does it really matter? When it comes to science, everything matters.
One change to the equation could ruin the experiment! Ohhhhhh it was this table here.
All right, so you sat down at the table, and then what happened? Oh, well first, I expressed my displeasure with the design of the menu.
It- I'm sorry to interrupt, but I just noticed something.
Yes? The tablecloth.
It isn't the same color as the one the restaurant used on the day in question.
Really? He's right! The tablecloth was red! I remember because it clashed with the font on the menus.
I don't suppose that means we're gonna need to get a new tablecloth, does it? Oh, most definitely.
One change to the equation could ruin the experiment.
Twilight said so herself.
Anything stand out as being different? Anything at all? Um, I've noticed a couple of things.
Me too! Excellent! A little to the left! No, my left! A little bit more oh, no, no, no no, on the more right! The cloud over our table looked like an ice cream sundae! Perfect! No no no no no, this is barely room temperature! Garçon! Garçon, over here! No? Nothing? Are you sure there's not something you've missed? Some other detail about your lunch together that you're forgetting? Well I don't know about the rest of you but I feel we've been pretty exhaustive in our attempts to recreate every single detail of our previous encounter.
Yeah, Twilight.
If you don't get it by now, I don't think you're ever gonna get it.
But it is really important that I figure this out! It's for the good of all Equestria! Well, perhaps we should have another look at the data that we've collected.
Of course! There is one last variable that we haven't accounted for.
What? You! Me? You weren't there observing us.
No matter how hard we try, we can't possibly recreate our weekend of fun exactly as it happened because you'll always be watching, and you weren't there.
Mmmm.
He makes a good point.
It has only served to prove that moments of levity and bonding between friends simply cannot be recreated so that others might share in the experience.
He makes another good point! Oh don't worry, darling, I'm sure there'll be plenty of other chances for you to share in the kind of frivolity we had with Discord while you were away.
Yeah, and I'll bet they'll be just as hissssss-terical! Absolutely.
I'm not buying it.
Not for a second.
There is definitely something else going on here, Spike! Or, maybe there isn't, and you should just drop this whole thing and admit that you're a little jealous! Even if I'm not able to laugh at what happened, I should be able to figure out why they find it funny! Why they think they had this amazing and hilarious time together, but I can't figure it out! It doesn't make sense! Some things just can't be explained.
Our friends think something great happened to them while I was away, but maybe it was something awful! If we don't break the spell they're under, who knows what terrible things could happen?! Spell? Come on, Spike! There's no time to lose! Zecora, what do you think? Can you undo Discord's magic? In what way can you tell that they are indeed under a spell? They're having fun with Discord, that's why! Ah, a friendship with Discord is truly a shock, but who says it is something that we must block? Trust me, they would never laugh like that unless something magical was involved! It's not that funny! I know funny.
All right, this potion will break the spell, then you will be able to tell.
Wait.
If that's the potion, then what's brewing in your cauldron? It ties the room together and emits a warm glow, but if I am to be honest it's just for show.
I wonder why she asked us here so bright and early.
Another map adventure, perhaps? Nope, no glowing tushies here! Or maybe it's more of a non-adventure.
Maybe she just wants to tell us how last night's slumber went? Hey, gang! Ooh, you look excited! I am excited! We're gonna have fun today! Yes! Just one tiny, miniscule, microscopic thing before fun times.
I need everypony to sip this potion to break Discord's spell on you! A what now? Don't be embarrassed.
So what if Discord cast a spell on you so you thought you had a great time, and now you have all these inside jokes that you seem to be constantly laughing at? Don't worry! You didn't have your defenses up, I get it! You're kidding.
Twilight, darling, we simply had a nice time with Discord.
As I recall, we spent much of yesterday afternoon re-enacting it for you.
Uh-huh.
Or, you re-enacted what you thought was fun, but really wasn't because you were under a spell that made you think what happened was fun! What kind of fertilizer have you had your nose in, Twilight? Be honest.
The only reason you won't drink the potion is because deep down in your hearts, you know there's a chance that Discord has you under his power! Twilight, how could you say such a thing?! I know Discord still makes mistakes sometimes, but you're accusing him of being downright evil! Yeah! And to top it off you're accusing us of not being able to tell he was up to something! What do you take us for? Yeah! What do you take us for?! Dee-licious! Got any more, Twilight? Hi, Twilight! The gang mentioned we'd all be hanging out together today! The gang? Yeah! The peanut-butter-hoof gang! It's still funny! So much for that whole 'spell' theory.
Ugh but it's still not funny! It's funny if you were there.
But I wasn't there! I wasn't included! Maybe it's my own fault for staying in and having a booksort-cation when I could have been making jokes and memories and having a great time with my friends! But I didn't do that, did I? You all did! You were all there but— I wasn't there.
I missed out.
And seeing you having all these jokes I wasn't a part of and couldn't understand made me Jealous? No.
The Princess of Friendship can't get jealous! Sure you can, Twilight, and none of us begrudge you for it.
We're sorry if we made you feel left out.
You didn't do anything wrong.
You're allowed to share things that don't include me.
And you're allowed to feel a little jealous about it.
You just have to be able to admit that that's what you're feeling so you can let it go! And, you know, not try to make us recreate everything that happened when you weren't around.
Of course none of this would've happened if I hadn't encouraged everypony not to invite you this weekend.
They wanted me to be there? And you convinced them to not invite me? Well, I didn't think that they should interrupt you.
But now I see that we should have.
Oh, I feel just terrible.
You don't look like you feel terrible.
Better? Wait a minute.
You didn't suggest not inviting Twilight because you wanted to make her feel left out, did you? Of course not.
That whole jealousy thing was just a happy accident.
Certainly we can all agree that Princess Twilight learned a valuable lesson here, that even she can have feelings of jealousy, that she should recognize said feelings rather than trying to pretend that she doesn't have them Did I get the tiniest bit of glee out of watching her try to recreate our weekend of fun in the name of science? Oh, most definitely! But what's important here is that it was never my intent to make Twilight feel jealous, that's something that the old me would have tried to do.
Orange you glad I've changed? I said, Orange you glad I've changed? Orange! Like the lunch at the Applejack farm! I mean from this weekend! No? Nothing? Really? I thought you'd find this hisss-terical! Yes, no.
Discord, I think these jokes have run their course.
Only way we'd find them funny now is if you put us all under some kind of spell! Come on, you'd have to be a complete crazy pony to think he'd do something like that! What are you gonna say next, Pinkie, that we all have to drink some weird potion to break the spell? Wh-what's so funny? Come on, Discord, do we really have to spell it out for you? I, I, I don't get it.
Somepony want to tell me what's so hilarious? Anypony? Hello?! I'm talking to you! You! And, and you and you! Wh-what's funny about spells? I mean, really, I really don't get it, I feel left out and I feel really bad about this Sorry, buddy.
Guess you had to be there.
