Enemy Mine by MLP-Silver-Quill Enemy Mine by MLP-Silver-Quill
Dear Pinkie Pie,

I am afraid I must call upon you and your friends to help further Discord’s rehabilitation. In particular, he needs lessons in practical joking. As you are specially suited for this lesson, I am entrusting him to you and Rainbow Dash. Please do not let him anywhere near Fluttershy, as I fear she is most ill-fitted.

I shall be by with Discord shortly; right after I prepare a de-petrification spell and find my titanium baseball bat.

Princess Celestia


A friend of mine in college had an alternate name for Valentine's Day: Singles Awareness Day. It fits.

I'm sure we'll see a lot of art and comics devoted to the ponified holiday this week, and who am I to resist the flow? Besides, Discord's a fun character to write. What started as a pretty straightforward prank grew and took on a life of its own. My only regret is that I chose to draw the two most visually complex characters in the series!

Which I why I'm grateful for the statute vectors provided by :iconblowingbomb: and :iconcooltomorrowkid:. It gave me some flexibility with a time-sensitive project. provided the My First Crush style font. Remember to read the instructions in the zip file before using the font so you can get the hearts effect.

And if you happen to be on your own this hallmark holiday, keep in mind that you are still celebrated by friends and family and that's not something to forget.

Happy Valentine's/Singles Awareness/Hearts and Hooves Day!

Update: By special request, an enlarged and clean version of Panel 6.

Valentine's Update: Never invested much in a day like today, but I am feeling the love.

Not only do I get to have my art featured on Equestria Daily, my comic was also translated into Russian which is pretty amazing. And a Google search has revealed this piece on various websites and blogs across the net.

Thank you everyone! It is a true rush to know that people across the world are enjoying my work and sharing in my enjoyment of these characters!

Should've known Discord would have a trick in there somewhere. All seriousness, you're comics are awesome dude. Keep up the great work.

The contrast on my monitor is a little weak, so I had to lean down toward my screen to read what was on the sign at the end.

Naturally, doing so was totally worth it.

Just noticed the subtle box design change between the second-last and third-last panels.

Senpai noticed me!
Sharpman01 Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Where did that meme come from? The senpai notice me thing...I REALLY would like an explanation.
MagicSong123 Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2015
'Cause Siver replied to me! XD
I never expected him to!
Sharpman01 Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
But the meme itself is more the question.
Endri11 Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Although this was HILARIOUS, I would like to see this in the show, they do show from time to time affection from one another (lie the end of season 4), I hope they show more of these two together in season (with her or not I would want Discord either way).

Is Celestia crying in panel 5?
RebornAnimalz Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
lol, honestly, Discord and Rainbowdash should be like best buds in season 5. They both love pranking.

Discord is such a troll Troll!!! Troll Face Icon

Best part of this comic: Celestia never saw it coming

I almost agree Discord.  Almost.

gdi Discord you had one job
UndercoverSeeker Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2014
I was kinda hoping something like that would happen in the season 4 finale with that whole cake in the face this. I was really praying that the flowers Discord gave to Celestia would squirt out water or explode. XD
Themlplover Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2014  Student Artist
anypony else relize in the panel celestia gets hit with the pie the hearts on the box become broken hearts?

on the 17th pannel, i have one thing to say
TF2 Sniper Smiley  Headshot! :D as discord said... totally worth it!
jeremeymcdude Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
i wonder what happened when luna showed up after the cake to the face.
RedBoy262 Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
the 6th pannel (including the top one) reminds me of that part in greek mythology where the lady is tied to a rock to be eaten by a sea serpent and gets saved by someone (I need to do my reading) via midusa's head.
Catz4eva Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2015
You're talking about Perseus.

Lol, I totally ship dislestia, though!
TheGr8MC Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Dislestia?  Isn't that some kind of reading disorder?
bluebell5656 Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2014  Student General Artist
No, it's DiscordxCelestia. You're thinking of dislexia. And for me, that's big, because I'm not a shipper.
TheGr8MC Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I know the difference, I was just making a lame joke.  I used to say "one of the reasons I don't ship Discord and Celestia is because I don't tend to support ships that sounds like they're named after neurological disorders."
bluebell5656 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2014  Student General Artist
Lol, sorry. I didn't get the joke! facepalm 
marinus18 Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2014
I would really love for something like this to be in the real series. That Discord is pestering Celestia and getting her less formal and stiff.
Krysnha Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014
Nice thanks forsharing
1cosmiconsciousness Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2014
Luna: -walks in, sees Celestia, tries to hold back laughter but fails- HAHAHAHAHA! Wh-what happened?
Tia: Discord.
Luna: He sure does have a sense of humor. Where's yours?

Now that I think about it, Luna probably did talk to Discord about this prank, help set it up.
1cosmiconsciousness Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2014
I'm sorry. I'm not quite sure what I was thinking when I wrote this.
Arkus0 Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I would love an episode focussing on Discord and Celestia, heck just an episode focussing on Celestia would be great.
Culu-Bluebeaver Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2014
It was totally worth it, to take a look at this great and funny comic :)
