Song: Here Today

"...Twilight? Are you okay?"

Twilight Sparkle fluttered her eyelids. She finally shot them open and leaned up. "Wh-what just happened? I had the strangest dream!"

She turned to the gathering of ponies. All of her friends were there, as well as the Princesses. Celestia looked as though she had just gotten out of a haze as well.

The sun goddess cleared her head, and turned to her student. "You were under the spell of Discord, or at least, I thought you were," she admitted.

"Wait, what do you mean, 'you thought she was'?" Rarity pointed out. Princess Celestia lowered her head. "I'm... sorry, Twilight, but I was wrong. You weren't under a trance."

Twilight looked at her teacher. "You mean, it was just my imagination? What is today?" She quickly changed the subject.

"Don't you remember, silly? It's the day after our celebration!" Pinkie Pie piped up.

Again, Twilight was quizzical. "But how can that be? How could I live three years of my life... in just a night's time?"

Rainbow Dash stepped up to Twilight's bedside. "Dreams have a way of doing that. I've had fantasies of being in the Wonderbolts, and they are sometimes years long, too." The cyan pegasus blushed a bit. "Then I wake up, and realize it was al just a dream."

Twilight Sparkle sighed. She lifted her head quickly. "Wait, what about Classic Rock? What happened to the real him?"

Everypony, including the princesses looked at each other. "Twilight, my dear student... Classic Rock doesn't exist," Celestia said. "He was just a figment of your imagination, merely a pawn, like I said. I had to show you that it wasn't real..."

The unicorn felt as if her whole world had crumbled like in her dream. "...and, Discord?" she asked slowly, knowing the answer already.

"Still trapped in stone," Fluttershy said quietly, matching her friend's low tone. "I'm sorry, Twilight..."

Diamond tears filled Twilight's eyes. "Can I have a moment alone, please?" she said.

All the ponies nodded, and left her alone, sobbing quietly on her bed.

A few months later, Twilight sighed with relief as Pinkie Pie's peport to the Princess was sent off.

She still couldn't believe that everything that had happened in her dream actually came true-with the exception of a certain draconequus being there, of course.

Oh, no, She thought. Am I thinking about him again? Twilight hadn't given the Chaos Entity a second thought since her crazy breakdown. She felt bad all of a sudden, as if she should've thought of him more.

Twilight trotted back home, accidentally bumping into somepony. "Oh, I'm sorry!" She quickly apologized. The colt groaned, and smiled warmly. "Oh, no worries, mate. I wasn't looking where I was going."

The unicorn stared in disbelief. The colt she crashed into was a green, striped pegasus, with a messy black mane and glasses.

"...I'm sorry, but what are you staring at?" He said. Twilight moved her motuh a few times before getting it to work.

"I-it's just that... I feel like I've seen you before," she said slowly. The pegasus chuckled. "I get that a lot. Name's Classic Rock. Nice to meet you, Miss..?"

"Oh, Sparkle, Twilight Sparkle," she answered. "Right. Miss Sparkle, it was nice meeting you." Classic Rock bowed slightly, and trotted away.

He turned around and called back to her. "Oh, and do look where you're going next time!"

Twilight giggled. The princess had said he didn't exist, but this was no dream. She trotted home, thinking about Him again.

She called her number one assistant. "Spike, take a letter, please," she commanded. Spike groaned. "Again? I just finished Pinkie's!"

"Just do it, please." The dragon sighed, and produced a quill and parchment.

"*ahem*Dear Princess Celestia,
I am hoping that you can find some free time to schedule a visit.
Spike and I have gathered our bags for a short visit, and await your answer.
Your faithful student,
Twilight Sparkle."

Spike sent the letter off in a burst of green flames.

Days passed, and Twilight walked through the labyrinth-like gardens of Canterlot, carrying a bag.

She passed up multiple statues and sculptures, each representing something. But there was only one she was looking for.

There, in the middle of the labyrinth, behind black and yellow tape, was him.

Twilight looked around to see if anypony would see her, and ducked beneath the tape. She approached the statue, frozen in a look of sheer terror.

She couldn't help but feel bad, for it was partly her fault. Twilight chuckled. "You know, I was once trapped in stone too," she sympathized.

"... Do you think that, any of my dream was real? Were you there, like Celestia was? Watching me?"

The statue just stared.

"I... I need to know, do you... do you...

" you love me?" She asked. Discord's stone face showed no sign of answering, or any indication he heard her.

Twilight started crying. "Please, show me a sign that you hear me. That you understand. Even if you say 'I don't like you,' I don't care. Just tell me that you hear me."

The statue just stared.

The unicorn cried some more, and levitated the bag she brought along. A pair of ridiculous sunglasses floated out, along with some flowers. "I brought these for you," Twilight said. "These look better on you than on me." She chuckled.

She placed the flowers and the glasses down on the statue's pedestal.

Twilight bowed her head, and galloped back to her room. She packed her bags, and was escorted home.

It rained that day in Ponyville. Everypony stayed indoors, for it was coming down hard.

Even the energetic Pinkie Pie was inside, serving pastries to those who were stuck in Sugarcube Corner.

Only one pony was outdoors.

Dear Twilight Sparkle, dancing around like a filly,

Under her one cotton candy cloud.
Well, here it is guys.

The final Chapter of Discord's Symphony.

The song is Here Today by Paul McCartney.

This ending I had planned long ago, and really wanted to use the cotton candy cloud scene. I just wasn't sure how to bring it in.

I was going to make it so that Discord leaves Twilight, but I think this is a bit more creative.

Ciao, Guys!

:( wha... what...

Still made me sad...:(

His goofy glasses, the flowers at his stone, the dancing in the rain...I know what I'm talking about but I won't say anything. ;)

Still, Discord...and he loves her. Well, I'm SURE he does.


Really, I pray for a third story to this series! Discord just can't be stone! Twilight misses him, and he misses her!

And I miss them being together! :iconsobplz:

Oh, My gosh!
Should I really go for a threequel?

I was actually pushing the envelope with this series already! I don't know how to continue it!

I guess I might, but give me time. I can't promise anything to anybody. I do want to leave it at this. But you just awakened my imagination, and it is telling me to continue.

... give me a few weeks, and if I do come up with a new series idea, then so be it.

I might know how to start up the threequel if you're having trouble.

-=Mini-Wall-of-Text=- :blahblah:
At some point Twilight could be going over her books and she might come across a certain book... "Mythical Master Magic and Spectacular Spells: a unicorn's guide to alicorn magic"... You know the book she keeps seeing over and over in her "dream" thanks to a certain draconequus *hint* *hint*. She could go over the book and find out how to release Discord, but not without complications from Celestia. From there it can go anywhere really, but it's really up to you. However, I DO really want to see some Discolight and not this sad ending. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this story to it's fullest, but to have the relationship just haze out at the end seems to leave an "empty" feeling in me. Lets just hope this will help you out even a little bit.

Anyways... I love this story... It's one of the few Discolight stories out there and I loved every minute of it. I will pray that this will continue, but in the mean time I'm off to reading more stories. :gallery: --- :lightbulb: =) :lightbulb: --- :reading:

Wow, thank you so much for the compliments!

And you remembered the book?! I completely forgot about that thing!
But that does seem good...
idk, I might use this, and of course, give credit where it's due.

Thanks for everything! ^^

Foshi64 Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
lol thank you so much!

I might write more stories, 'tis all I can do until the bloody scanner gets working. We just need to get a new one, I'm telling you!

But thanks, I did try to make it a touching ending, and I thought that the cloud scene would spark a tear or two.
