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.

Sincerely,
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.

Fontspace.com 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!

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.

Dislestia?  Isn't that some kind of reading disorder?

No, it's DiscordxCelestia. You're thinking of dislexia. And for me, that's big, because I'm not a shipper.

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."

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.

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.

I would love an episode focussing on Discord and Celestia, heck just an episode focussing on Celestia would be great.
