Blog: Discorded Whooves
The Doctor is outnote .
"You like that, don't you? Watching me throw myself on the line for your own amusements?"

One of the most (in)famous Ask A Pony blog on tumblr. Written and drawn by brony community celebrity Jitterbug Jive; Discorded Whooves (& Captain Jack) follows the adventures of everyone's favorite Time Lord-turned-pony, Doctor Whooves after he's been discorded, leaving him a womanizing, alcoholic, sarcastic, physically abusive asshole.

This blog spawned a massive Intercontinuity Crossover, with multiple Alternate Reality and POV blogs, of which are:

"Ask the Master"- A blog starring this universe's Master which also provides a backstory for Discord.

"Doctor-Obsessed Derpy"- A prequel about Derpy and the Doctor's adventures together.

Ask Miss Twilight Sparkle- a somewhat Grimdark Twilight blog about the Doctor's girlfriend.

"Zerum Hooves" - very NSFW

"Master of Zerum" - a Discord blog based on Zerum Whooves' Discord.

"Ask the Puppets / The Void" - Based on Zerum and Master of Zerum.

"Torchwood V" - A blog Starring Captain Jack.

"Bedeviled Derpy" - An alternate universe blog where Derpy gets discorded instead of the Doctor.Each of these boasts solid artwork and an engaging storyline.

Related to this blog, the mod also has a "secret" Valeyard/Octavia blog.

This tumblr contains examples of:

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Despite being a complete Jerkass whose antics include beating Derpy to a pulp (which sent her to the hospital), sleeping with her nurse and her best friend just to spite her, and possibly being an alcoholic, Discord Whooves has both Miss Twilight Sparkle and Laura the Zony in love with him. And they're both aware of his actions. Though to be fair, this probably has more to do with the mods of both blogs being friends in real life with Discord Whoove's mod.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: How Discord ultimately defeated the Doctor and caused him to become Discorded:
    Discord: So after all of this, I only have one question for you: Doctor 'Who?'
    Doctor: I... I don't know.
  • Battle in the Center of the Mind: A constant theme.
  • The Chess Master: Discord gives off this vibe.
  • Crapsack World: Equestria is really down in the dumps. Rather than just a single day of chaos, Discord's release in this universe resulted in a cataclysmic war that left thousands dead, the land blasted and barren, and the Princesses completely unable to do anything about it due to the war having severely weakened them.
  • Continuity Porn: Oh you have no idea.
  • Crossover: The blog itself is a crossover between Doctor Who and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. As stated above, there's a massive Intercontinuity Crossover spanning multiple blogs. Outside of that, however, there's the crossover between Discorded Whooves, Miss Twilight Sparkle, and Pregnant Scootaloo.
  • Dirty Cop: Arguably Warden, see Knight Templar below.
  • Driven to Suicide: Miss Twilight Sparkle nearly killed herself due to how hopeless the situation in Ponyville has become, but thankfully Dissy saved her and convinced her not to do any more attempts.
  • Everybody's Dead, Dave: Ponyville, at least from Miss Twilight's perspective. Rainbow Dash was murdered and cannibalized by Pinkie Pie, who never stopped laughing psychotically after being found out, even as the gullotine came down on her head. Dash's death caused Fluttershy to suffer a mental breakdown resulting in her hanging herself. The only ones of the Mane Six left alive are Applejack, whose become an alcoholic sociopath, Rarity, whose become a sadomasochist, and Twilight herself, who has been so thoroughly broken by what she's gone through that she suffered from suicidal depression until Dissy entered her life.
  • Fisher Kingdom: Deconstructed. While ponification is possible... it doesn't mean you can survive the process. ...unless you're a Time Lord.
  • Foreshadowing: Everything, potentially. The mod apparently has the story laid out start to finish, and even the slightest reference can be this or Chekhov's Gun. More concretely, anyone following the secret blog knows that the string of Ponyville murders foreshadow The Reveal of the Valeyard.
  • Gender Bender: Dissy once had a run-in with poison joke, causing him to turn into a mare for a period of time.
  • Great Offscreen War: What Discord's release from his prison resulted in this world. Equestria is still struggling to recover.
  • Hope Spot: A combination of Jack's appearance and Twilight being left with Pregnant Scootaloo's baby to care for. The Doctor manages to make good work in breaking his Discording. Then the Doctor meets Derpy again and Discord starts messing with the asks.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: After he sees Minuette outside of a hospital, he runs into the TARDIS and begins breaking down, culminating with him needing a bloody drink.
  • Justfor Pun: Enforce on the Doctor once he enters the Punverse.
  • Innocent Innuendo: During their trip to the PUniverse, Captain Jack spends some time flirting with a librarian, while Dissy pays a visit to that universe's Twilight. When Jack comes back to Twilight's library, he finds a closed sign affixed to the door, so he listens in. Inside, he hears Twilight shouting things like, "it's so long!" and "faster!" which cause him to pop a wingboner, when in reality, all that's happening is that Dissy's using the Time Lord perk of being able to read through a book by merely thumbing through the pages.
  • Interface Screw: Discord's spell has recently begun altering and outright destroying asks to ensure Dissy acts exactly as Discord wants him to.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Dissy is sarcastic, mean-spirited, and a womanizer. But he can't leave a child and baby to die.
    • No wonder. His body is fighting against the discording, after all.
  • Killed Off for Real: Amy and Rory.
  • Knight Templar: Warden is obsessed with pinning everything that goes wrong in Ponyville on Dissy, even in cases where he can't possibly be the culprit. Its been hinted at that he was like this even before Dissy was Discorded.
  • Mind Rape: Runs all over this blog.
  • Morality Pet: Miss Twilight Sparkle and, more recently, Jack Harkness.
  • Never My Fault: Part of the reason Dissy is such an asshole is because he believes everyone close to him, especially Ditzy, up and abandoned him when he needed them the most. Naturally, this attitude is due to Discord's spell.
  • Oh Crap: Jack has this when the Dissy starts tapping out four drumbeats. Just like the Master.
  • Opposite-Sex Clone: It's strongly implied that Sparkler and Dinky are clones of the Doctor, being the pony versions to Jenny.
  • Reality Subtext: The whole Discord Whooves and Derpy drama which represent some aspect of Jitter Bug's personal life.
  • The Resenter: Ananta is not happy that Jack has become a resident, presumably due to his paradox-fueled immortality.
  • Roaring Rampage of Rescue: Dinky saves her mother with some seriously powerful magic.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Sparkler who acts more like a young filly and Dinky who acts more like an adult mare.
  • Take That: Dissy did not like My Little Dashie.
  • Wham Episode: There have been several, including:
    • Dissy finally snapping and beating Ditzy to within an inch of her life.
    • The appearance of Ananta, the personification of the TARDIS' soul.
    • The sudden appearance of a Serial Killer who slashes unicorns' throats and steals their horns.
    • The appearance of pony!Jack Harkness.
    • The reveal of when this diverged from canon "Doctor Who".
    • The Daleks show up, the Master makes a reappearance, and Jack gets Discorded.
      • Followed by the Doctor becoming more Discorded than he originally was, shooting Jack, and shoving him out of the TARDIS.
  • Wham Shot: In some ways, literally.
  • Wretched Hive: This version of Ponyville is a violent, depressing, crime-infested hellhole. Mayor Mare has actually abdicated in disgrace due to how bad things have gotten.
