An Almost Pleasant Surprise by RedApropos An Almost Pleasant Surprise by RedApropos


EDIT: Nicole Oliver said she loves this comic. SUCCESS!! :iconapplepimp1plz::iconapplepimp2plz:


Oh, don't get your ethereal mane in a tangle, Princess! See, it's chocolate hazelnut, your favourite! :D

Doesn't hazelnut just seem like Celestia's favourite cake flavour? It just seems RIGHT to me. :3
Anyway, my last comic really sucked, so I hope this makes up for it!

Dude, first of all, I wanted to say this is gold :XD:

This sounds just like Discord! It fits his M.O. to a T; I can see Celestia also behaves just like cannon.
Although the trace looks a bit bumpy and just slightly off at times, the art is really well done, too. The background seems too bland, though.
You conveyed the characters' feelings very well, especially with the all different font sizes; so much, I could feel the mood as if I were inside the comic.
All this, not to mention the strip has some very witty humor to offer. A good laugh, for sure.

Great job! I hope to see more of your splendid work in the future!

ok this would be my first critique, so forgive me if it is bad.

Where should i start off? let me see...oh yes, one of the most interesting pairings of which i have stumbled upon on this website. first off, the artstyle is amazing. then again, probably everyone says that. but still, way better than what i can do. the idea of discord doing something nice for celestia, then have it blow up(in this case, litterally...) in her face is an nice idea, and i have never seen any like this on this website. the second, when he trolls her with her age. priceless. classic discord! the old saying is that you should never consult a woman with her age. he pretty much tramples on that saying and rule. and of course, i could say that this is nice fitting into cannon, even with celestia being mad at discord for his antics. but then again he does it for fun, which is why i enjoy the character so much. all in all, i have to say that this is an nice piece. keep sketching for the brony community and also for the v.a.'s and lauren faust. all your watchers are right behind you!

Ahh! Sorry I just assumed because you included diglett dig in the cry when a Dugtrio can only say the syllables "dug", "trio", "rio" or the combined "dugtrio".
What is he?!?!?!?!

A draconequus. Deriving from the two Latin words "dracon" and "equine or equus"

Dracon meaning "dragon".
Equine meaning "horse".

Therefor, draconequus would mean "dragonhorse", but while being a draconequus, Discord (the character you see in the comic) is a mixmatch of a bunch of different creatures. Hence his name "Discord", which means chaos or disharmony.
-mind goes blank but still understands- Ok! :B
