Discord and Celestia: A Parody of Romeo and Juliet by InkRose98 Discord and Celestia: A Parody of Romeo and Juliet by InkRose98
So I was sitting in English class reading Romeo and Juliet when I read a few lines mentioning Juliet like she was the sun. I thought to myself: "Hey... that sounds a lot like Celestia!"
And so this came to be.

Took me FOREVER to draw. I'm still getting used to using my crappy old tablet again. My friend's awesome new tablet spoiled me.

SO my idea is that Discord is from the family of the Draquonequi, (If that's how you spell it) and Celestia is from the family of the Alicorns. Being chaos and order, they naturally do not get along. But when Discord and Celestia meet and fall in love, instead of dying in the end like in R and J they run away to be together forever in a new land called Equestria. There Celestia demonstrates her wonderful powers of order, and the ponies there choose her as their new queen, along with her sister Luna, who tagged along with the pair. Discord, however, is rejected by the ponies, as his powers of chaos only brought misery. His heart twisted, and her turned to darkness, using the full force of his chaotic powers against the ponies. Celestia and Luna were forced to stop him, turning him to stone...
and so is the tragedy of Celestia and her beloved Discord.

Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Equestria, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where chaotic magic makes civil hooves unclean.
From forth the fatal struggle of these two foes
A pair of star-cross'd lovers flee from the fight;
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their vanishing bury their parents' plight.
The fearful passage of their magic-mark'd love,
And the continuance of their parents' rage,
Which, but their children's flight, nought could remove,
Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;
The which if you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

I like it, but Discord's mane is a little too thick

For there wasn't a story of more woe,
Than of Celestia,and her Discord.

I forgot the dialogue to this scene...
Needless to say, everything was going smoothly with a smile on my face till "kill the moon" gave me a flutter of panic as I interpreted it literally and didn't like the implication that Luna would die.
I should really go to sleep.

Discord bringin' the moves.

Wait a minute the other reason I don't like the implications of it being a Romeo and Juliet parody, THEY DIED.

AWESOME! Dislestia is the best MLP:FIM pairing ever, and to have them do one of the most romantic scenes ever is too wonderful!

Wow, thanks! Personally I find SoarinDash to be my favorite pairing, but Dislestia is a close second, if only for the amazing backstory and feels that could go with it in my headcanon.

I was trying to make her leg look like Zecora's when it is bent, with the little point at the top.

Great work! You can never have too many Shakespeare references.

I wonder who Discord will end up dueling to the death with? Blueblood? Of course, that'd be after Pinkie Pie says, "'Tis not so deep as a well, or as wide as a churchyard, but 'tis enough. 'Twill do."

Mind, really, the one bit of Shakespeare I want to see done with an all pony cast is Titus Andronicus. Imagine how THAT would look to the audience!

Nice epic story ya got there! I have slightly different theories on what happened to the younger Discord, but I like this nonetheless. I assume you're a high school freshman if you're reading Romeo and Juliet. Those were the days..

It's not exactly my head cannon, I just wanted to fit it into the R&J storyline, but I'm glad you still like it!
And yes, I am. Very observant, you are!

Ok, that makes sense. I just assumed it was your head canon though, but now I'm curious..what is?

:D I try..have you gotten to then end yet?

I still don't know for sure what my big official head canon is yet, but I feel it is a bit different from the above-mentioned story.

Yes, we did get to the end. So sad... even though I knew it was coming.

Hmm. Well keep me posted. You've got me curious now..

And yes, it is sad, but it all depends on what you thoughts of Romeo and Juliet as characters. For example, my english teacher last year was firm in her belief that there was no love between them, only lust. Looking back, I kinda agree. Me and my conspiracy theories...
