I just...uuuuggghhh, that would be creepy and in my opinion ruin Discord...and also leave out most chances of a possible discordxcelestia pairing...

I thinks Star Swirl was Sombra's Mentor, and that Discord's been with Celestia and Luna since before Star Swirl

That's a mindblowing thought...

It reminds me of Adventure Time, where have the past life of the Ice King...


I imagine the same with Discord. jejejeje

Example:
Star Swirl was investigating a spell.

"-I hear voices in my head ... they say things ... secrets ... The secrets of the chaos". -said Star Swirl. -"May the power of chaos will protect me ... I have no idea what you mean...but as I can see I am experiencing changes in my appearance ... and my powers have increased to a point not even I need to concentrate...I have no idea when this will end ... I'm scared"..

2º part

"-I know my mind is changing .... but I've come too far to know what to do". -Said Star Swirl become more in Discord. -"Want you to know if I do things ... things that hurt someone .... please forgive me".

3º part.
Star Swirl as Discord (as in the image above)
-"Just stay away from me ... until I can find a way out of this maze of my head and regain my sanity!!!! -said "Discord"...

logical and ironic......

it is said that Star Swirl never had a friend, or understand the meaning of friendship. And Discord said he never had friends in life. Maybe for a failed spell him into Discord.

Note: may be the cause of why Princess Celestia sent him to release.

Starswirl couldn't have left any descendants because he didn't understand friendship, so how could he have wooed a mare and had foals with her? Unless he created offspring in a lab, that is.

this speculation still holds up since starswirl never finished his master piece because he never had friend and neither did discord i hope they put something like this into the show. over all though your art work is very well done. =)

Ya know, doesn't it make more sense that Starswirl would be Twilight's ancestor?

The records of family lineages would have been lost during Discord's chaos... only Celestia and Luna would know THE TRUTH!!

It's a theory I've recently subscribed to, more because it makes complete sense in my mind. And I REALLY would love to see Twilight's reaction to learning that one of her idols of history has become the embodiment of chaos.

you know what. I think that he was supposed to be star swirl, but that the word got out and spoiled everything so they made that quick episode. that episode seemed so rushed. i think it is a open secret.

The more I hear about this theory, the more I begin to believe it. We'll have to wait for an episode that is centered on either a Discord origin or an actual Starswirl episode. Here's hopin' they come out soon.

Ho visto l'immy su tumblr e mi sono schiaffata qui a favvare 8D Davvero molto bello! A Twilight sta bene il fatto che le abbia rubato il costume?
Cavoli, come idea ci starebbe anche... personalmente preferisco vederlo come solito elemento burlone del caos e basta. È un personaggio figo, non vedo perché smontare tutto
