:iconfluttersadplz:I'm sorry, Discord.
:iconfancydiscordplz:For what?
:iconshyfluttershyplz:I try my best to do the pranks you told me, but it all ended up that I was the one who get startled or frightened.
:iconfancydiscordplz:Oh, my dear, don't be frustrated. Everypony have ther own strong points and weak points.
:iconfluttershyisshyplz:but you had made so much effort, yet I...
:iconfancydiscordplz:No no no no, that's totally fine. "I never really expect you could pull off a successful prank". If you just can't be a prankster, so what? You are still who you are, you are still the Fluttershy we all care and love.
:iconflutterthinkplz:You really think so?
:iconfancydiscordplz:Yes, you just need to accept who you are and don't be too hard on yourself.
:iconfluttershyhappyplz: Thank you, Discord. (hug)
:icondiscordtrollfaceplz: Yeah, thanks me~~hehehehe~

:iconfluttersadplz:對不起, Discord.
:iconfancydiscordplz:不不不,那真的沒啥大不了的。 「我可從沒認為妳能夠成功」 妳當不了一位搗蛋鬼,又怎樣?妳還是妳,還是我們最愛的Fluttershy呀。
:iconfluttershyhappyplz: 謝謝你,Discord。 (抱)
:icondiscordtrollfaceplz: 說的好~~呵呵呵呵呵呵~~

After reformed, Discord finally persuade Fluttershy into playing some harmless pranks to her friends.:

Here comes the last one of mane 6. As my series progressed, some people asked about why would Fluttershy do pranks or, specifically, why would she do them which are likely-to-failure to characters like Pinkie or AppleJack. Now the answer has revealed in the description above. The whole PranksterShy series are actually the pranks that Discord do to Fluttershy. Discord play on the sly and due to Fluttershy's naive personality, she didn't even notice.

:star:Biggest Winner:star:

This series are my attempt to explore Discord's character. After he reformed, I think Although he may not once again wage his tremendous magical power and devastate Equestria, his cunning nature and playful personality would still make him unable to resist to do mischiefs to others including his cherished and only friend.

Last but not least. I never received art critiques before. Now I have became a premium member, I think I may as well try it out. Please feel free to leave an art critique regarding the 5 comics of this series as a whole. Thank you.

This is the first time I've given a five star rating in any category--I didn't think I ever would, but your originality here, and throughout the whole series of comics, has been fantastic. You've earned it.

The vision for this, and again, your whole series of PranksterShy strips, has always been clear, and very well conveyed. From Fluttershy's adorable cheerfulness as she prepares a prank to her shock or embarrassment when they inevitably fail, it's all well planned, well orchestrated, and done with no unnecessary padding.

As I noted in my opening paragraph, the originality you bring to this series is phenomenal. The core concept itself is extremely original, really--Fluttershy is the last pony anyone would ever expect to play pranks on her friends, but it's well-justified in your explanation and use of Discord. I never would've considered Fluttershy playing pranks at all, but beyond that, the pranks she plays and how they fail on her aren't predictable either. It's great stuff.

Your technique is extremely clean and well refined. Your art is not show accurate, but it's still a very good fit for pastel ponies, and you obviously were bringing your own style, not matching the show. You make the ponies even more adorable than the series itself does, and you do it while maintaining the look of each pony faithfully enough that nothing ever feels "off" or out of place. As a more subjective remark, I very much like your style personally; your art is some of the most enjoyable to look at in the way of pony comics.

There's very little to say about impact here. These are comics meant to be funny, and they just ARE. Every single Prankstershy strip has made me laugh out loud, and when you're trying to be funny, what impact could possibly be greater than laughter?

This strip, along with its whole series, is absolutely fantastic. Thank you for creating them.

This is really cute, not to mention hilarious. The art is supreme and the way it's performed is amazing. I can understand some people don't like the shipping, but I don't look at it like that. It's just a comic made for fun, and in my opinion it was a success. It was an unexpected twist as' well, which is something I really enjoy. These series are really cute and never fails to make me smile. Poor Fluttershy will never be a good prankster, but she will always be unbelievable cute. Great job artist, hope to see more from you.

You know... in my planet, EQUINEKLRTINGGA, we pronounce Fluttershy as *Cough* *Cough* Purrty!

Oh la la, Twilight! Never would have thought... . 

But Angel on the last panel really kills me. Like a boss! XD

I can see Twilight doing this sadly.  Since she is the most sheltered of the Mane 6 she would be the one to COMPLETELY misunderstand.

I wouldn't complain if it were to happen.
