"But Spud, why didn't you just photoshop some wings onto Twilight in these screencaps?"

"Because I couldn't find clean vectors of just Twilight's wings at enough angles that I was confident it would look good shrunk down and in so many different poses I didn't waaannaaaaaa."

Discord in the last panel reminds me of a time I almost got one up on my Dad in something we were doing, it was either a one on one debate or a chess game. I was at an advantage, but he snatched victory from the jaws of defeat at the last moment, then he looked at me and smiled as he said, "You're better at this than I was at your age...but I'm still *my* age."

I tried monologueing at Nightmare Moon once. She counter-monologued and then dropped me off a bridge to my demise.

...I got better. Then accidentally poisoned her with the element of Laughter. >.>

The party was stuck in a nightmarish dream, and at one point my character and another PC escaped some Silent Hill inspired creatures into a hole in the wall. On the other side we met a pink pony in a dark hoodie that went by Laughter (we both aren't familiar with Pinkie Pie, so her similarity doesn't raise a flag). She treated us to some hot cocoa and a few helpful hints on how we might escape the dream.

Much later the party regrouped together and confronted Nightmare Moon to get her to let us out. After my first confrontation ended poorly, I thought to try a more diplomatic approach. I even offered NMM some of the hot cocoa I had gotten earlier from Laughter. My thought process was that the cocoa seemed to cheer one up and put them in a better mood after a few sips. NMM took one sip and spat out blood, collapsing momentarily from the drink infused with an element of harmony. Whoops! The diplomacy went downhill from there. ^^

All sometimes a hero monologue makes the villain do a save toll versus nausea...
And so the chess game continues as the surprise element is lost and now DM Discord is challenge a all or nothing attack...

This is making me want to rewatch this episode. Only now the only season on Netlix where I live is the first season. Ugh.

That is such a perfect segue into a VPN advertisement I can only assume it was intentional.

Calling it now: What Discord is up to is tricking them into *not* trying the Elements of Harmony right away, when he actually has nothing to stop them from working. It's a colossal bluff, built on the reputation he established with them by out maneuvering them so thoroughly in his first session, and Applejack's suspicion is going to make her walk right into it by trying to avoid walking into whatever trap she suspects he might have.
