POVs Of Discorded De-Harmonized Ponies

"The Truth Can Be Deceiving" Applejack

Ah didn't ever lied before. Ain't now. Ain't ever!

Okay, so Ah reckon' Ah was sometimes dead wrong 'bout some things. Maybe Ah couldn't buck the entire orchard by myself. Maybe helpin' with ah tricky stunt, bakin', and herdin' bunnies what ain't the bright when Ah was half-asleep.

So Ah didn't tell Pinkie Pie 'bout her surprise birthday. But Ah didn't tell her nothin' that ain't true!

Okay . . . maybe . . . maybe Ah did kinda sorta hog the bed from Rarity that one here time an' said Ah was asleep when Ah really wasn't. But . . . but come on! It ain't a lie if ya ain't really tryin' to trick'em right?

Elements of Harmony Stolen. Into The Maze. Separated from the others. Grove of Truth.

Ah see us all. Sayin' we're done with each other. Goin' back ta before when Twili' first showed up in Ponyville.

Ah don't know what we'll say ta each other. But Ah know it ain't right. If this here is where honesty leads . . . broken friendships, broken hearts, hateful words . . . it ain't worth it.

Ain't it just better if everything is just wrapped up in sweet peaceful lies?

Don't tell yer friend what you really think of their music they like but you don't. Don't tell ya parents what ya really thank of what they think. Don't say bad things, even if they're true, don't say harsh things, even if they're true, don't say anything that might upset things even if they're true. ESPECIALLY if they're true! Isn't that what Rarity is always sayin' bein' polite is all about? Isn't bein' a lady in Manehatten sayin' one thing but meanin' another? Isn't bein' a polite friendly ponyfolk the same thing?

There is one truth Ah'll accept. The truth hurts. The truth is cruel. And Ah won't be part of somethin' that awful again! Sweet little lies are so much kinder.

Eine psychologische Auseinandersetzung mit dem ersten Zweiteiler der zweiten Staffel von My Little Pony: Freundschaft ist Magie, erzählt aus der Sicht der sechs Heldinnen der Geschichte:
Equestria steht am Rande einer Katastrophe. Ein Feind, so alt wie das Land selbst, hat sich aus seinem Jahrtausende-langen Schlaf befreit, und hat die königliche Hauptstadt und Ponyville ins Visier genommen.
Discord, seines Zeichens Gott des Chaos, will den Thron wiedererringen, von dem ihn Celestia und Luna einst gestürzt hatten. Und dieser Tyrann bedient sich zum diesen Zweck seiner zerstörerischsten Waffe; und das sind Equestrias Ponys selber. Als Herr über Verstand und Wahrnehmung, weiß er sich jeden noch so starken Willen untertan zu machen.
Nun liegt es an den sechs Elementen der Harmonie, Discord Paroli zu bieten, bevor das Land unter ihm im Chaos versinkt.
Doch dann kriegen auch sie die volle Breitseite von Discords Macht zu spüren. Eine nach der anderen stellt fest, dass Discord in seinen Begründungen doch sehr 'überzeugend' sein kann....
Dies sind ihre Geschichten.

1. Die Wahrheit schmerzt
Was passiert, wenn die ewig ehrliche Applejack mit der Tatsache konfrontiert wird, dass die Wahrheit nicht immer gut tut? [link]

So I decided to put this chapter through multiple different languages on Google Translate, and then translate back to English, here is the result:
Harmonization of private vehicles Discorded pony

Apple brandy "does not disappear from the reality."

Oh EVAH lie. Not now. EVAH not do it!

Well, AG if some thangs reckin 'Oh, I was dead wrong' bout. Probably not buck the funeral and mahself full board. Uh difficult tricks, Bakin ', and herdin' sleeping half AG is not clear when the rabbit "may be helpful.

Oh well, said his surprise birthday bout 'Pinkie Pie. But oh, that's not true, do not say anything her!

Okay. . . Probably. . . Probably yes, oh yes, he really was not time to sleep, the bed was acting a little black pig rare -DAH. However. . . But, come on! Later the trick'em well not really do "try, it's not a lie?

Elements of Harmony is stolen. In the maze. Otherwise someone else. Experts of the truth.

Oh, we have to see both. Other people say that we. Twalight first go back to the TA, arrived in Ponyville.

Oh, I do not know that we will say goodbye to each other. Ah, but we do not have that authority. This leads to honest here. . . Broken friendships, broken hearts hate the word. . . It's not worth the effort.

It's just a lie wrapped in sweet peace is better than not only Everythang?

You really seem to like his music tar crafty friends, but you do not say. Examples dates so that parents really thank you, thank you. Even if they are difficult to do, what they can in fact even if bad things, investment anythang not, they say, that's right. In particular, where a modest bridge to the tar! Rare, if not always say that? July, but another 'meanin do not talk to Manehatten woman when the bridge? No legs, courtesy, kindness gives ponyfolk July?

This option is really Ah'll. The truth hurts. The truth is cruel. Oh, and this is a terrible season can not be a part of something! Sweet little lies are very friendly.

-Liarjack

If anyone wants I'll do the other chapters, and I'll even take suggestions for languages.

Southern accents pronounce 'r' very strongly. You gave her a Bronx accent. Easy mistake to make, but don't "evah" do it.

Little review of this story.

- You know I always found it difficult to exactly incoperate accents into text.  You want to make it obvious what they're saying but you do want to make it distinctly thick enough for it to feel like it's own character, and constantly doing that must be a pain so even for this little bit salutaions for getting it right without going overboard.


". but come on! It ain't a lie if ya ain't really tryin' to trick'em right? 

- No but you were both being petty long before that, especially in convincing the other to stay for Twilight's first sleepover just to supposedly spare her feelings when it was just to get back the other.


-Also if we're counting all accounts of lying and falsehood what about trying to pretend you were selling high class apples at the grand galloping gala just to entice those rich snobby ponies? That was kind of sort of a lie if we're counting all of them.

- I especially liked the ending of just how desperate and sad Applejack was in trying to convince herself that lies were better then telling the truth with how hurtful the truth could be.  Honestly hers and Rainbow Dash's were the saddest stories as the others were either played a bit more for comedy (not saying it didn't work just saying that's what they were there for) or felt more specific to them instead of more general.  I can get behind this lesson though especially knowing some people who'd rather keep quiet and live with lies then the harsh truths they wind up recieving.

So yeah solid little intro little monologue of Discord Ponies and so glad this wound up managing to catch on.

I forgot that they were short and sweet to the point. It was kind of funny how AJ was getting all worried about this first but then suddenly started having a more positive tone. Although near the end I kind of had to re-read the parent thing a couple of times over thanks to your emphasis on her accent,^^; but I got it now. :nod:

Anyway I think I know when I should go and watch these videoes. I'll do it after I finish each chapter, that way I can give my opinions on the voice actor in the comments. :nod:

Maybe helpin' with ah tricky stunt, bakin', and herdin' bunnies what ain't dat bright when Ah was half-asleep.

I think that the "what ain't" may not fit with the flow of the sentence. It may need to be changed to "weren't". Otherwise, it sounds like it's talking about the bunnies. Possibly, it should instead be "and herdin' bunnies and what, weren't dat bright" as this version separates out the bit about the bunnies and also maintains tense.
(Alternative to changing "ain't" to "weren't" is to change "Ah was" to "Ah'm".)

THe 'what aint' was supposed to be one idea. So if the 'ain't' would go, so would the 'what.'

:iconsaphroneth:
Saphroneth Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2012
In that case, there has to be something to separate the bit about the bunnies from the bit about half asleep. So "What ain't dat bright weren't a good idea when Ah..."

Straight to the review, I can see why people complain about LJ's accent - this is your first story, and the accent comes on as a little strong here...you toned it down a bit in future stories, from what I can tell. I'm kind of spoiled on the GIANT ROLLING SCROLLS OF EPIC LENGTH you normally use for a chapter, so I can't help but dock points on that. Still, as first posts go, this is a very good piece; it draws the attention and gets the reader interested in what's going on...even if they already know from watching the episode.

The joke is that I MEANT to maintain the concise, minimal style of speaking and narrative with each chapter, but things . . . took on a life of their own.

I actually EDITED DOWN the accent from what I had it before here.

Re: Life of their Own
That's part of the fun of stories, they write themselves almost as often as they are written by a specific being.

Re: Accent
Huh. Maybe it's just that Applejack isn't the only speaker later. Weirdish, she seems to lose it a little as the series progresses. Not quite gone, but not at this level either...maybe I'm just delusional. There shall be...AN INQUIRY! Next story should be up soon...

Somehow i think that Discord really brainwashed them.
Well, at least not in the common meaning of this phrase. He showed them the underside of their elements and ponies simply broke because - as i see the whole thing - Equestria isn't the place where you meet bad things a lot or where you have to face the underside of the things. Thus ponies -all ponies- aren't used to it, unlike us.
I just clearly see it now, because when i was in middle school i had a sort of mental breakdown similar to one AJ had.

Want to talk about it?

And yes, the ponies may have natural hazards out the woozoo, but they don't have gang violence, prejudice is a annoyance rather than a social illness, teenager girls don't vanish in the night to turn up in a prostitution ring in another country, and the ruler of the land is Aslan-lit. So yeah, I have to agree.
