17th Dec 2022, 6:00 AM in What About Discord?<sigh> Once again, a page that has barely a punchline because I wanted to write another Tirek monologue. I swear I didn’t intend at the start of this for most of this arc to end up a love letter to Tirek as a character and as a villain…
Notice: Guest comic submissions are still open until this arc is finished! Guidelines here.
Twilight Sparkle: So, uh… how does Tirek react to that?
DM: Well, he’s not much of an artful dodger, so he’s going to block it with a shield of his stolen magic. He’s barely able to keep himself safe as the beam washes over him. But it still pushes him back a rather massive distance and forces him to exert a lot of effort. With the two of you trading explosive arcane blasts, the sky has turned a dark, fiery orange from all the ash, smoke, and debris. The beam you just cast has left a long scar on the land.
Twilight Sparkle: We need to stop, Tirek! What’s the point of ruling over a land in ruins?
Tirek: Oh, you misunderstand, Twilight. I will not be content to rule from a cozy palace like Celestia. When I finally have your magic, I will spend the rest of time playing with this realm like so much clay. Can’t you feel it, Princess, with all that alicorn fury? The rush of power and destruction?!
Twilight Sparkle: I’m gonna make you wish you never left Tartarus!
