THEN FLUTTERÉN DECLARED HER POWER,

AND THE SPELL WAS LOOSED THAT BOUND

STONE TO STONE, AND DISCORD'S CASTLE

CAME TUMBLING DOWN, AND THE PITS LAID BARE...

"But no unicorn's spell, neither trick nor venom, nor troll's art nor beast-strength, could overthrow Angel of Bunnymor, the Hare of the Ponytär; and he took the Lord of Chaos and pinned him down. Then Discord shifted shape, from wolf to serpent, and from monster to his own accustomed form; but he could not elude the grip of Angel, without forsaking his body utterly. Ere his foul spirit could leave its dark house, Flutterén approaching glared at him, and her gaze was piercing and adorable as to command the most hardened enemy of ponykind; and said that he should be stripped of his raiment of flesh, and his ghost be sent quaking back to Tírek. And she said: 'There everlastingly thy naked self shall endure the torment of his scorn, pierced by his eyes... unless you yield to me the mastery of thy tower. That is... If you don't mind...' And she smiled. Then Discord did yield, and Flutterén took the mastery of the isle and all that was there; and Angel released him. Again Flutterén chastised him, saying that he had made a bad decision and should leave; and immediately he took the form of a Draconequus, great as a dark cloud across the moon, and he fled, dripping chocolate rain upon the trees. It is said that he came to My-no-Taur, and dwelt there, filling it with terror; but the Eye of Discord would not fall upon Equestria for a thousand years."
