Your Best Shot is a My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Fan Fic, written by Potato Joe, that asks: "What if Rainbow Dash had been present when Discord gave the Mane Cast their first shot at him?"The result: Twilight and Discord swap powers, and part of their physical appearance. Now bestowed with strange abilities, Twilight and her friends try to get her back to normal while attempting to control Discord.
This fanfic provides examples of:
- Alternate Universe Fic
- Butt Monkey/ Villain Decay: Discord towards the end of Chapter 6 and onward.
- Eye Scream: Downplayed; a character is turned into a doll, complete with button-eyes, which then get torn off as a crowd fights over the doll.
- Fetish: Pinkie really likes hooves.
- "Freaky Friday" Flip: Downplayed: Twilight and Discord merely swap powers and part of their physical appearances as a result of the disharmonized Elements of Harmony.
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: Twilight briefly makes sure she hasn't swapped genders with Discord. Pinkie promptly notes:
- Medium Awareness: Pinkie Pie, full stop.
- Oh, Crap: Discord after realizing Rainbow Dash is present."W-wait, she’s not supposed to be here!”
- Power-Up Letdown: The Harmony rainbow is disharmonized; that is, each part is fighting with the others. How fitting for the mane cast's current situation...
- This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!:Discorded Fluttershy: Dust this, bitch!
- Wham Episode: Parodied: the chapter titled "Wham Episode" consists of almost nothing but the word 'wham' repeated over and over (as the mane cast beat Discord up).
- What If?
