There's some reconciliation in my head that needs to be done between "Celestia that has dealt with Discord's impenetrable wall of villainous ego before and is beyond done with it when Round 2 starts" and "Celestia that invites reformed Discord to the Grand Galloping Gala for the lolz."

The Gala really must be that excruciating for her.

Notice: Guest comic submissions are open! Guidelines here. Deadline: January 27th, 2023.

No more excruciating than brushing your teeth in the morning is for you as a part of your day. It is one of the events of a year, like the summer sun festival, seeing the hearth's warming thing, etc.

G3 confirmed to be a worse evil to Celestia than Discord antics.

What to do, what to do.
I kn-no that's that's been too many times.
What abo-that wouldn't work here even with my magic.
For once I'm actua-oh perfect.
I'm sure Digo didn't need this box of medical supplies any way.

"We have secretly replaced Digo's medical supplies with Folger's crystals. Let's see if he notices."

Good coffee.
You know i was going to turn Pinkie into a mummy, but now I'll give her this coffee instead.
I think that will be enough to break the walls.

"My Faithful Student" has that as a gag and a plot point. :)

'Tia is very protective of her little ponies. She's got zero chill if you come to do bad things to Equestria, so she goes straight to beyond done when her subjects' safety is on the line. But she never actually hated Discord's antics in and of themselves (it would seem); she just hated when it was a threat to her subjects. And she's developed a lot of maturity over her long life about the futility of holding grudges. Thus, once Discord is downgraded from "mad god" to "mostly harmless prankster," she thinks he's pretty funny.

I think Borg pretty much has it there. As an added level to Celestia's impatience, all of that chaos happening across Equestria is potentially hurting her subjects RIGHT NOW. She doesn't have time to listen to a monologue when her subjects are suffering and when irreversible harm might be caused in the chaos at any time.

<non-sequitur> 1066 -- the Norman conquest of England

<segue> If Discord's lecture is "white" noise, would one of Pinkie's high-speed rambling explanations be "pink" noise?

Almost but not quite. Pinkie often (though not always) has useful information to share. Discord's socializing is not that.

- So, what is the emergency?

Discord... elements...

- Uhh, yeah, but how can we do that?

Discord... Elements

- Where is the villain castle?

Discord... Elements

The Gala really must be that excruciating for her.

Given her age I imagine she's attended every gala that ever happened and got bored with them a long time ago.

Weird thing happened today after mowing my lawn. I found Folgers Crystals coffee in the medicine cabinet. That stuff is just... beyond stale coffee. Ugh.

If it's good for Mister Bookman then it's good enough for me.

Yes. The Gala really is that excruciatingly bad, due to it getting more and more pedantic and stuffy over the years.

Also, Gala invited Discord is WAY better than "just woke up" Discord.

I wonder how many times it will be hard to tell whether it is Tia who is angry at Discord, or DM angry at the fellow-DM.

"Hey wait. Are you being in-character or out-of-character now?"

"I... don't... know..."

Given the similarity of M6 and their players, how Discord-like will the new DM be OOC?

Technically wasn't TWLILIGHT in charge of the Gala that Discord got invited to?
Needling Haystacks 22nd May 2018, 8:57 AM edit delete reply
Yes but Celestia explicitely said that she (Celestia) was the one who invited Discord.

I like the "seed" comment in the 4th panel. I don't know if it was intentional or not, but it *does* neatly play into the later episode with the chaos vines. Especially if he makes any more gardening comments in this appearance.
