More logic? Tarra.exe The 8bit operator !3NiGhtwiNg 481531

Thinking this over, if they have Discord on their side now, why not just get him to help out? I'm sure he would do anything that Fluttershy needs him to do and using his magic would make the most since.

But seriously, even if we went on the assumption that Discord's gesture at the end of season 4 meant "I'm officially on your side now", I get the feeling the ponies not named Fluttershy aren't racing to interact with him yet. They're still wary that he might make the problem at hand worse rather than help out, either by turning things upside down for his own amusement, or being tempted to go back to being evil again. So they'd rather not talk to him unless it's unavoidable.

Because it's their job, not his. And exploring friendship is Twilight's journey. Your question reminds me of the comic issue with Celestia and Spike when he asks her why she doesn't just deal with everything herself with her massive power levels.

whoa, that comic thing sounds cool. Is there a way I can see that without paying for it?

seriousness in a meta discussion?
this site is really strange
anyway, even with discord on the side of the mane 6, discord is still likely to do what he wants until fluttershy expresses disapproval, that makes him unreliable, and while he likely wouldn't let serious harm come to the mane 6, he's just an inconvenience that's better left alone

I haven't seen you in the other thread for a while
I miss the witty humor you add (also I fear the thread is starting to stagnate)

Discord has a tendency to break shit.

Oh, I'm still there, lurking in the shadows. OP is doing one of his one-a-day drip fed cinemas, where there's not much to do but watch the talking slowly. I'll rear my pretty white head again when I have something to add.

Twilight could prolly call on him and he'd pop right up.

fair warning, extremely nerdy and potentially off content (not directly related to the show, apologies in advance) post below
the character discord seem to be based on the Q from star trek and more specifically character Q
http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Q_(species)
the Q as a a species are apathetic to the universe (see paragraph #2 in the link)
given that it's not guaranteed that discord would appear at twilight's call
also the Q are not all powerful (see paragraph #3 in the link)
and in the season 4 finale discord is overpowered by tirek (showing
that discord is not all powerful)

based on this discord can be seen as
a) unreliable
and
b) not a sure bet
yes I am aware this is a very 'cherry picked' argument
