Steadfast Cliplette 01

Discord Off the Rails

I wrote the last 1k of this near a year ago to weave Steadfast Discord’s mindset into the show version we all know and love. Of all the ideas I had about ‘the fall’ of these characters, this was the only one I really liked, and really wanted to show. So for my first cliplette : exactly what it says on the tin.

So. I wrote the story below shortly after finishing Steadfast. It’s my thoughts on Discord as he ages, and eventually, falls. Doesn’t really fit in with the rest of Steadfast. Mostly because its a monologue. somewhat because it’s a mashup of very new and very old writing. I wanted to write a companion piece about him and Luna, but soon afterwards I dove headfirst into a writing rut so deep that I hit the liquid mantle and suffered severe literary burns.

I could go on, but have a story. It’s not my best, but that’s not an excuse to be a sissy about it.

“I think my grandfather may have the correct approach to art. He’s had a long career, and in his retirement he’s been working on building a boat. I doubt he’ll ever finish it, but I don’t think that’s particularly important to him. He wakes up every morning, drinks his cup of coffee, then goes out to his workshop to sand a tiny portion of wood. He doesn’t need to finish that boat to pay the rent. He can afford to have some distance from it, so he gets to enjoy it. He looks at that boat tenderly, like he looks at his grandkids. He gets to have a dream without the necessity of achieving it.”

Aggressive/Dramatic Zuko that make me giggle.

Zuko is basically the most perfectly accurate teenager ever to appeal on TV.

I answered some Q&A stuff on twitter to make up for the lack of a page on Monday! Thanks for reading!

I think about pokemon in non-battle situations a lot. Like pokemon who have been trained/raised to be helpers and assistants than to be battle partners.

Pokemon visiting hospitals to cheer patience up like dogs and cats do. Or ones that help kids learn to read, speak, swim, go through therapy?! Even pokemon whose abilities help owners with specific disabilities?!

I love thinking of pokemon outside of battle situations.
