The Doctor is outnote And he needs someone more than anything. -Jack.
"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 blogs on tumblr. Written and drawn by Jitterbug Jive, Discorded Whooves follows the adventures of everyone's favorite Time Lord-turned-pony, the Doctor, after having been discorded, leaving him a sarcastic, womanizing, alcoholic, physically abusive asshole. At least at first.As well as Ask Discord Whooves itself, the story has since grown to include many other blogs (of varying quality) told from alternate POVs that intersect with the main story, as well as several Alternate Universe blogs.These include:
Ask the Time Master - A blog starring this universe's Master, which also provides a lot of backstory and worldbuilding for the pony universe.
Ask Lovestruck Derpy - A prequel about Derpy and the Doctor's adventures together before their encounter with Discord.
Torchwood V - A blog starring this universe's Torchwood team and Captain Jack, following on from after the Doctor shot him.
Ask Miss Twilight Sparkle - A somewhat grimdark blog starring this universe's Twilight Sparkle, who is also the discorded Doctor's lover.
Ask Dalek Sha - A blog starring a strange dalek who shows up in the Discorded Whooves universe from time to time.
Doctor Rorschach - A blog for the Doctor's therapist, who also has sessions with Derpy and the Master.
The Perry Doctor - A blog starring "Perry", originally a Joke Character from an April Fools' post that was revealed to be All Just a Dream, but who now exists as a living entity in the dream world. Has since crossed over into the Zerum universe.
Not listed here is a Valeyard and Octavia blog set in the main universe, which the mod has requested readers not to link to to keep it "secret".
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
