I don’t know why I enjoyed this scene so much. It was sad, but seeing Discord’s magic in raw form was very interesting to me.
this scene, though… literally Discord’s magic, magic he’s known for, magic that was all he used to have, is being stolen from him. It’s fitting that he gave Twilight her key, since Twilight’s the element of magic and Discord’s known for his magic.
I hadn’t thought of that! This is true.
The parallel Discord gave up friends for power, Twilight gave up her power for her friends.
