So I had to cut some things back from Discord Wooves in order to progress the story faster. One mini arc I had involved a unique pegasus species that he and Octavia were going to encounter.
I give you the Pegasi of Paradise, based of course on birds of paradise
It was going to be a tropical island paradise, but the catch is that all the males are colorful and elaborate while females are plain and dull. This of course makes Octavia and Dissy seem quite attractive to the stallions on the island, who try to woo them both in typical bird of paradise fashion.
Once they learn however that Dissy is in fact a male, the other stallions become determined to try and show him how to stand out and dance with his wings, making his wings far more flexible and emotive.
So, sadly we won’t be seeing Dissy expressing with his wings much after all, but it was a fun concept to play around with.
Another older character I dug up from last year; Lazzaro, some sort of demonic shapeshifting harlequinn with a hobby of taking wistful hearts - quite literally. Definitely the overzealous romantic type
