Song: Brain Damage/Eclipse
Discord shuddered. He felt as though chaos had just happened, but not by his hand. He shrugged it off, and returned to his task: cleaning the library for when Twilight came home.
Said pony knocked on the door. Discord, snapping his fingers and making the area clean, looked around, satisfied, and opened the door. Twilight Sparkle stepped in, a surprised look on her face.
"Wow, Discord! You did a nice job," she complimented. The draconequus smiled. "Sorry I'm late, a friend invited me to lunch."
Discord raised an eyebrow. "Neat. Who?"
Just then, a chestnu-"DON'T YOU DARE!"
...Twilight Sparkle looked around, slightly nervous. "Oh, uh, an old friend."
"Uh..." The phone rang loudly. Twilight, seeing an excuse, answered it. "Twilight's Library....7:00 on weekdays, midnight on Saturdays. Thank you."
Discord was now curious. She was hiding something."Who?" He asked again, leaning in playfully.
Twilight realized there wasn't much of a way out. "Who? Uh, just somepony we know."
Discord chuckled. "It's Classic Rock, isn't it?" Twilight flushed. How did he figure it out?
"Yeah, it was. It's just that, well, he was very nice, and seemed to blank every now and then," she recited. "I wonder why he looked so distant..."
The Avatar of Chaos chuckled again. He facepalmed. "Don't you get it, Twilight? He's fawning over you! Probably to get back at me!" Discord stopped talking the second he saw Twilight's concerned face.
She stepped over to him. "What exactly did you do?" she asked. "I... might have... brainwashed him in the past, and now he's been after my tail since then."
Twilight had to pick up her jaw before it could get tangled in her hooves. She collected herself, and breathed out a sigh. "Well,at least he looked forgiving," she said. Discord laughed. "Forgiving? I'll be lucky if he doesn't show up with a chainsaw in his hooves!"
At that moment, a large whirring sound like that of a chainsaw rang through the library. The sound belonged to a spinning blade cutting into the side of the old tree, shredding it piece by piece, bark by bar-
"SWEET CELESTIA'S MANE, STOP WITH THE DESCRIPTIVES ALREADY! THERE'S A CHAINSAW TEARING UP MY HOUSE!" Twilight yelled. Oh, and sorry.
The blade cut a neat rectangle hole while Twilight and the author argued. A grey pegasus with a wicked smile stepped in. "Heeeere's Rocky!" He shouted.
Discord slithered in front of Twilight defensively. "Stay back, my dear," he said calmly.
Classic Rock growled. "That won't do much against this ol' chainsaw, mate!"
Discord snapped his fingers. "Chainsaw? What chainsaw?" he said. The spinning blade Classic Rock was holding turned into a cherry pie, that proceeded to smack him in the face.
This, while hilarious to the Chaos Entity, only made him angrier. A bright light filled the library. Princess Celestia appeared, trotting to the pegasus' side.
"Well done, Classic Rock," she commended. "You've done exeptionally well in bringing me to these two."
Classic Rock looked up at her. "Yeah, well, guess what? I didn't come here for them. I came here for you, luv." He said, snarling again.
Celestia blinked in confusion. "Wh-wha..."
"You see, I believed Twilight when she said that Discord had changed. I don'thave anger towards him anymore. All that anger built up- For you. You tricked me. You used me. You wanted me to hurt potential friends." He looked at Twilight and Discord. The colt smiled softly, slightly turning a dull green.
Classic Rock turned back to the Sun Princess. "Now that is true evil. All Discord does is joke around. 'Tis all he does! I have never seen him hurt anyone while travelling with him. And you wanted me to kill him."
Celestia heard a gasp from her student. She started to sweat nervously. "Well, Twilight, you must see... I had to get you away from him. He's not what he appears to be!"
Twilight started to say something, but Classic Rock steamed up again. "Alright, you know what? I've had ENOUGH of your false accusations!" He jumped at her, screaming.
Time seemed to slow down at that point. Twilight looked around her. Discord was frozen in a look of sadness, tail still around her in defense. Classic Rock was halted in midair, a wild look on his muzzle. Celestia didn't even flinch; she had activated her horn for a spell.
Classic Rock turned-slowly, of course- to face Twilight. He smiled warmly. "Thanks," he said, time returning to normal.
The colt was hit by a ray of light, and slammed into the wall. He slid down in a heap, unmoving.
"NO!" Twilight screamed.
Classic Rock cracked his eyes open, staring at Twilight and Discord. He coughed, and smiled once more. Classic Rock's eyes glinted, and his head fell to the floor. The pegasus' dull green coat fizzled into a bright green. He let out his final wheeze of air.
Discord stared, mouth open in a small gasp. He shook his mixed up head, and pulled the crying Twilight into a comforting hug.
Princess Celestia tsked. "Hmph. Merely a pawn. Now, I believe I came here for you two..."
She stepped towards the pair, horn glowing.
