“Make new friends but Keep Discord” review
WOW! This episode! Hjhjhajhdjahjhajhjzjfhjh
Okay let me calm myself for a moment to give a straight
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
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.
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
Insults- he tries to get rid of Treehugger by “forgetting
her name”, that fails too.
Story telling- he mentions the story about
Fluttershy and him getting cakes together to show how “great” they are “together”.
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
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,
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!
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.
They love spending time together and tell
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

Quotes “I was wondering when you were
Going to ask me”
Like how a girl acts around a guy, or
But with the roles switched.
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.
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
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…)
In regards to their Tea Time, it seems like

But really he is.
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
The things I like:
Discord attics-it was so funny, any episode with
Discord is a good episode in my case.
Treehugger- eh, she’s nice, I don’t really hate
DISCORD: “We like eachother!”
And so many more ^_^ Im so want this on a shirt!
My overall score:
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!!!
I REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE ORIGINAL VERSION OF THE ENDING WAS!
