Honesty - Deception. Dishonesty works, but deception sounds better.

 

Kindness - Spitefulness

 

Loyalty - Betrayal

 

Generosity - Greed

 

Laughter - Despair

 

Magic - ......Don't have anything. Normality?

 

Pretty good, i am stumped on magic also, sadly.

Honesty - Deception

 

Kindness - Cruelty

 

Loyalty - Selfishness

 

Generosity - Avarice

 

Laughter - Despondency

 

Magic - Reality (analogical real life. Nothing is more ability-prohibitive than logistics.

 

Discord - Harmony (but you knew that)

Chaos - Order

 

Sunrise - Solar Prominence or Super Novae

 

Moonrise - Lunoeccentricity, or other such astronomical failures.

These are almost perfect.

 

To finish it off we have to come up with a valid opposite for Magic that fits the shows context.

Well it's staring at you in the title Friendship is Magic!

 

So if we look at the episode "Return to Harmony 1/2" where we see what I call the Elements of Discord.

Anti-Applejack is Deception

Anti-Fluttershy is Cruelty (Spiteful works too)

Anti-Rarity is Greed

Anti-Rainbow Dash is Betrayal

 

Anti-Pinkie Pie (aka Pinkamena) is a bit different since we see her in "Party of One" also.

In the literal sense Despair works, but in context Jealousy is more accurate.

 

Anti-Twilight need an Element of Discord. In context Friendship is Magic.. Therefore Anti-Twilight needs to the opposite of Friendly.

Hostility and Animosity works best!

 

My Little Discord: Animosity is Reality!

Heavens no, only close-minded people think that, not suggesting you are. Science only increases the magic.

 

No offense, but this seems like a pretty near-sighted viewpoint, if only because you're calling someone else close-minded about this.

 

Ever heard of Aurthur C Clarke's "Laws"? "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

 

This doesn't mean that they are the same, only that they are indistinguishable from each other at a high enough level.

 

I thought about this subject last night, and found this thread today and just wanted to share. I'm already using these in a story...

 

Honesty = Deceit

Laughter = Anguish

Generosity = Greed

Loyalty = Treachery

Kindness = Malice

Magic = Entropy (or Science, if you like)

 

I'm thinking Entropy (high entropy, really) is probably going to be a tough sell for most people, though...

My personal anti-element for magic would be realism. A world, a creative and interesting, exciting world like Equestria is magic - but if you keep denying every aspect of it because you are taking it too seriously and are a dead set realist you can really destroy the show or the good feeling of other worlds to people.

 

It's hard to explain, but that is my interpretation of that.

I said that in early 2012. Wow, a blast from the past huh! Actually I don't remember posting that but I remember this thread.

 

I don't even know what I was saying. Oh well.

No worries, we've all been there done that. I certainly have! ;)

 

So wow, I really dug up a tombstone thread! I guess I was thrown off by the closeness of month and day... and I kinda forgot the year. Oops. :P
