“Make new friends but Keep Discord” review

WOW! This episode! Hjhjhajhdjahjhajhjzjfhjh

Okay let me calm myself for a moment to give a straight review.

In the beginning, the fact that we get to see Discord and Fluttershy having tea together was a plus in my Fluttercord moments scale. So let me just separate my shipping sense and my friendshipping sense in two points, side by side.

So the fact they call their get-together’s Tuesday Tea. This was great to SEE and not mentioned. The one downside about it was that they were inside and not outside. I thought that when they have tea it would have been outside. But that was okay, I just loved how they interacted with eachother, they tell stories, they have inside jokes, and they laugh together. It was so lovely to see that.

Also I believe Discord won best face in this episode because from all of his jelousy moments, he had the best expressions. Plus two points for the animators! From the mere mention of Treehuggar he is sent to a jealous fit. Yet in the tea party moment, he gets up and leaves early! He acted so rude! He had his paws clenched, he stomped towards the door and he took all of the tea cakes! I would have never thought of him doing something like that to Fluttershy! UGH! It made me so angry at him “Bad Discord!” *slaps him with rolled up newspaper*

When he went to see the mane 5 and Spike was another good scene I saw, From Spike, he got a bit of a fright to find Discord underneath his blanket and too close for comfort. He even shook from fear! Lol. But I belived the reason Discord went to see the mane 5 was because he wanted to see if they were taking somepony to the Gala, almost a way to get into the party. The interaction with the CMC was an interesting one because we only seen them in the comics. In the comics they actually like eachother…

but in the show…they don’t…and I liked that. It showed that the CMC and the rest of the Mane 5 don’t really trust him completely.  Apple Bloom used SLAP!….its super effective.

When Discord goes to see Pinkie Pie, she already knew he was there…showing that there are still some power within Pinkie Pie if she was able to “sense” him and Discord still does not like Pinkie Pie and still finds her annoying. (Don’t be offended Pinkie fans, I don’t mean anything bad about this) .  

(Turns around and does a fist pump) no but seriously, that one scene might have fueled the Pinkiecord shippers.  Breaking the fourth wall and doing great refrences went along with his character and I was so glad to see that present itself throughout the episode.

Once Discord sees TreeHuggar he is already on his jelous-train.

  Once he heard Fluttershy laughing, you can tell that he is feeling hurt and betrayed because he thought that what he and Fluttershy had was something special.

 But while it was, he still felt betrayed because it seemed that Fluttershy could say the same things to anypony else. Treehuggar was an interesting pony, she shows not fear or hate towards Discord and calls out on his “sweet vibes”. Somehow that made Discord turn angry finding it as an insult.  Did you see his eyes glow? I loved it ^_^ it is so nice to see some “evilness” still inside him.

Discord’s dimension, (which is what we are going to call it)

was awesome! We finally got the chance to see where he lives! Kind of….I mean is it like a pocket dimension? But either way if the mail pony can find it then I guess anypony can. Also a moment of silence for Mail pony…who got taken by a monster….

Once Discord got his ticket, he is already planning what to do. He takes the Smooze as a last resort because he has no other friends to take. The moment he makes it to the Gala, he really does make his presence known throughout the gala. He is the center of attention, of course. Immendiatly he goes to find Fluttershy and his excitement to find her was so great and it fuels my ship even further. ^-^

He tries EVERYTHING to get her attention and to get Treehugger to go away.

  1. Attention grabbing-

    he introduce her to the smooze, the way he said that the Smooze and him were bestest friend, it was almost as if he wanted Fluttershy to experience the same jelousy he was feeling, but that failed.
  2. Insults- he tries to get rid of Treehugger by “forgetting her name”, that fails too.

    External image

  3. Story telling- he mentions the story about Fluttershy and him getting cakes together to show how “great” they are “together”.

  4. Jokes- once hearing that Fluttershy called treehugger funny, he tried to get his place back to be the funniest being she had ever known.

    In this episode, it really focuses on Discord to understand that sometimes Fluttershy and him could have other friends to discuss things with eachother. Fluttershy talks to Treehugger because they love nature. Im sure Discord finds that boring to talk about and if Discord want to cause some chaos, Fluttershy wouldent like that very much, so it really shows how their different interest really clash but it does not mean that they don’t like eachother. Its obvious that they do but don’t really express and spend time doing what the other wanted. They shared one thing and that is spending time together in their tea party by just..talking. Which is nice.

    The smooze…was…a side character, that became a “problem” by devouring anything that is shiny, but I think taking the main villain and turning him into a “minor” problem was not the way to go but, it seems that they needed the smooze for some reason. In fact, if the smooze wasent there everything would have ended the same, with Discord trying to send her to anouther dimension. Adding the Smooze did not make sense at all, I think that the writers and animators just threw the Smooze in there just to bring back an old villain.  The way Discord treated the smooze was so unbelievably rude and Discord is really a huge JERK…like always. But yikes.

    In the end with the confrontation, we see a really interesting fight. Discord plays off sending anouther pony to a dimesion as if it was a light problem. This is the first time we had ever seen him so angry. He was very very angry, did you see him on green fire?!!! The color of envy!!!

  5.

    After calming down he saw the errors of his ways and tries to win back Fluttershy forgiveness by playing the “pity-card” but that does not roll with Fluttershy who demands he apologizes and He presents HER with a flower,

  6.  with does not bode well with Discord as she does not accepts it and points to Treehugger. Did you saw how he stammered when she did not accept the flower? So cuuute, so much fluttercord!

  7. But in the end, he understands that Fluttershy is free to hang out whoever she wishes and that Discord would have to respect that and not be so jelous about it.

    I also made a list to separate the friendship aspect and the shipping aspect to Fluttercord. Check it out below.

Fluttercord ship

  1. They love spending time together and tell eachother

    Jokes and stories. Fluttercord LOVES their Tuesday teas and

    Discord loves it too. Mostly if its Fluttershy, the mere mention

    Of Treehuggar already sent Discord in a mild jelous fit which

    Quickly escalated to an uncontrolled jealous rage.

    He showed excitement when he heard about the

    Grand Galloping Gala and she took Tree Huggar

    Instead of him. He wagged his tail when he

    Quotes “I was wondering when you were

    Going to ask me”

    Like how a girl acts around a guy, or boyfriend? Hmmm?

    But with the roles switched.

  2. Asking around to see if the Mane 5 were taking somepony else to the

    Gala. It seemed he was looking for a way to go to the Gala, because

    He assumed he did not have a ticket. Finding a way to get close to

    Fluttershy in any means possible seems to hone in on his

    “stalkerish” or “clingy” personality. He seems to really revolve all of his

    Energy to get rid of the competition and have Fluttershy all to himself.

    He wants her to be jelous too, because I bet that was the reason for taking him. Fluttershy is his only friend but he does not want her to know that. As if he is embarrassed? And wants to keep in good graces with her.

  3. The way he wanted to get rid of the competition was a malicious one at that.

    When he is sending Treehugger to the other dimension, he was really really angry. He even quotes that “I can’t have you interfering with my relationship with Fluttershy!” AHHH! That quote! But in all seriousness, I think the writers made Treehuggar a girl to avoid any “romantic connections” from that quote. If Treehuggar was a guy, it would have been better…but whatever…

    Discord thinks that he is doing nothing wrong once Fluttershy calls him out, but he just plays it off that “they’ll have a good laugh” about it. Looks like someone was reading “bride of Discord” in Hasbro again…

    When Fluttershy tells him to apologize, he presents her with a single flower, I thought it was very sweet only for Fluttershy to slap it out of his paw. (okay I laughed at that) hitting the flower aside made sense because she was pretty mad at him and him trying to butter her up won’t work on her.

    Again this is something from Disneyfanatic “bride of discord”.

    But Fluttershy was the one that got him to calm down

    Fluttershy got him to apologize

    Fluttershy got him to understand. (pretty sure he is going to get jelous again…)

Fluttercord Friendship

  1. In regards to their Tea Time, it seems like any get

    Together that friends like them should have,

    Which is perfect to building back the trust that

    He lost with the Tirek-incident.  It is so nice

    To see the everything seems to be back to

    Normal in their relationship together, him being jelous

    Is relatable because if one of our friends went to a party

    That we wanted to go but took someone else instead.

    So his anger and annoyance towards it makes sense.

  2. Yet with his “clingy-ness” and apparent jelousy, Fluttershy

    Is his “oldest” and “bestest” friend he has, even if Twilight

    Is his friend, they don’t really hang out, so is Celestia. There are

    Two different friends in this, one who says they are friends but don’t

    Spend time together and ones who are like Fluttershy-who has tea parties

    Dinners, and you know, friends stuff.

    Him wanting to be the center of attention, from “interrupting” her and her friends

    By laughing with them, all awkward and also expressing the fact that the Smooze and

    Him are BEST friends to Fluttershy and everypony else to show that he is not alone.

    But really he is.

  3. Getting rid of the completion, was the final push for Discord because he actually felt threaten with his relationship with Fluttershy. The whole time that Fluttershy is spending time with Treehugger she makes comments that she made towards Discord. Those same comments must have hit Discord because it seemed that he was being replaced as a friend to her and from getting rid of Treehuggar was the only way of establishing his place. Yet, in the end, he realizes that he overreacted and that he shouldn’t be jelous if Fluttershy spends time with anouther friend because in the end they can still be friends.

    The things I like:

  1. Discord attics-it was so funny, any episode with Discord is a good episode in my case.

  2. Treehugger- eh, she’s nice, I don’t really hate her.

  3. Fluttercord moments

  4. Discord’s house!

  5. FACES!!

    The quotes:

    DISCORD: “We like eachother!”

    And so many more ^_^ Im so want this on a shirt!

    My overall score:

    9/10!!!!

    I really loved the interactions, Discord was really the focal point in all of this, what I did not like is that ending with Twilight and Celestia it seemed to really pull away from Discord and his friendship lesson and also A DANCE WITH FLUTTERSHY, from all that time! THEY SHOW US A SMALL TALK WITH TWILIGHT AND CELESTIA!

    WHERE IS THE DANCE!???
    I HAVE BEEN CHEATED!!!

    NOW I REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE ORIGINAL VERSION OF THE ENDING WAS!
