"Never before have I perceived such fear...felt such terror...experienced such joy when I stared into her eyes...
the stone creeped up her body like a snake consuming its prey, devouring her whole...tears began to run as I leaned in closer, never breaking my gaze.
I never knew it could be so much fun breaking another's soul...especially one so innocent as her. Element of Kindness...a pure soul by every definition...untainted, yet her eyes were the most feared weapon in the country...
I fought to defeat them...and now, as I stand inches away from her eyes, the final moments of her life ticking away...I claim my victory.
The Stare is defeated...and I have claimed its throne. Enjoy your stone prison, Fluttershy, for you won't be breaking out of it like Discord did..."
Remember that Fluttershy is very reluctant about using The Stare. Maybe her conscience prevents her from using it on something that looks like a pony, even if it's to save her own life. That's Fluttershy for you.
This makes sense to why she didn't use the stare. Fluttershy can stand up to animals being its her special talent. Ponies on the other hand is a different story. A combination between a pony and an aggressive animal is dangerous combination. Now I got Paralyzer in my head.
So this thing is a half-cockatrice half pony... the cockatrice itself being half-serpent half-chicken... I wonder just how the hell is this (rather Suetiful) cross-cross-species abomination even possible genetically, though I suppose the answer is probably magic. *snort snort*
I'll have to let him slide though, just because he's so perfect to use this theme for [link]
