• Discord Origins Exploration Contest - Write or Draw Discord's Origins!

    One thing we still haven't heard much at all about yet even after six seasons and multiple comics, are the origins of Discord. His history is as mysterious as his mental processes.

    On the 18th of this month, a giant episode length Discord origins animation will be releasing from the team corralled up by ILoveKimPossibleAlot. Check out the trailer for it over here! We've decided to hype it up a bit and team up by running a contest for the next five days while waiting for it to release.

    All you need to do is either draw an image of your take on the origins of Discord, or write a fanfic about it. It can be anything you want, from BORN OUT OF A DYING STAR to grown from a moldy donut. It's entirely up to you. Be creative! 

    On top of this, Entertainment Earth has decided to send us a bunch of MyMoji figures to give out. Four people that submit either a fanfic or a drawing of the origins of Discord will be randomly chosen as winners of a pack of six of them.

    If you don't want to hope for a win, you can just buy them over here, or go check out their pony section. It's pretty overflowing with upcoming Guardians of Harmony and other figures.

    Head on down below the break for the rules and submission info!
