On the one hand, it's a MLP/MtG crossover. And a notably well done piece at that to, showcasing the haunting beauty and dynamic lighting and cascade effects of the original very well. And it's a re-rendition of a picture by the phenomenal Todd Lockwood; my favorite artist for MtG and one of my favorite artists of all time.
One the other hand...
I actually checked through my spares to see if I still have that copy of Research/Development... only to find that I don't. Fck. I suppose I've just have to stick with protecting her with a sht-load of counter spells. That's what I have to do with my Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind anyway. (I swear, I can't summon him unless I have a Counterspell in hand and two open Islands.)
Applejack dug her hooves in the ground, panting after her leading her pursuer as deep into Sweet Apple Acres as she could. Hearing a rustling of trees behind her, She turns to face the dreaded Draconequus. - "Ah'm not afraid of you, Discord!" - (chuckles menacingly) - "Ah won't let you hurt my kin and you won't trick me like last time! You overgrown snake!" She shouts, glaring daggers at the floating figure. - "Oh please, Applejack! I'm a performer of the highest caliber, and performers rarely do the same trick twice." He says as reclines against the a tree that suddenly becomes a wooden chair in which he lounges. Applejack keeps an aggressive stance, despite the fear telling every muscle in her body to flee. - "What is it you want?" - "Oh, should know this already dear. I'm not that complicated. I just want to have fun. But there is something...or should I say six somethings standing in the way of that. - "And we always will be you monster!" She reared on to her back legs and began jabbing at the air, hoping to at the very least intimated him...He just smirked. - "Is that so my fair Applejack." He got up from his char, which collapsed into a burning heap, and stretched. "I'll just have to remove you and your...friends" The word choked out of him as if it tasted like the Flim Flam Brother's poorly made cider. Applejack growled at his threat and shouted a response. - You'll have to step over me before Ah let you law a finger on mah friends" She shouted planting herself down in front of Discord. - "As you wish my little earth pony." He laughed manically as he snapped his fingers. Applejack felt an odd sensation as the spell fell over her. She tried to move but felt only fell forward. As she looked back at her hind legs, her eyes grew wide with horror. They had collapsed into a pile of sand whilst her hooves turned into simple black stones. She attempted to crawl only for her front legs to meet the same fate. She tried to scream but the air just past through her as her body transformed into leaves that scattered in the wind. Glancing back once more she saw three apples fall out her coat as it flew away in the form of leaves. She gazed up at the grinning Discord and tried to cry but her eyes had become bright green emeralds. Discord looked down at the pile of leaves, straw, sand and stone that had once been the element of Honesty. He took up her hat and dusted it off before impaling it on he antler and walked over the earth...pony.
-What in the hay. Braeburn, why would you paint this?! I... wanted to give it a mortal effect... And here I thought you could tell the future. Nah, I'm just kidding. You guys are so cute when you're terrified for your lives. That would explain why we're the ones sent to do all the dirty work.
