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 love Romeo and Juliet

For there wasn't a story of more woe,
Than of Celestia,and her Discord.
As we speak, Shakespeare is spinning in his grave! :P

A poetry a princess of the star & an chimera of chaos...

Pure poetry...TuT
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.
OMG, yes! So much awesome backstory!
wonderful concept. Love the idea. You just might want to fix Celestia's knee. Its very pointy.

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