Applejack never put much weight in having a special somepony. She was a farmer through and through, and her life is dedicated to preserving and upholding Sweet Apple Acres. It is in her blood after all, her heritage. It is up to her to carry the mantle. Alone. Sure, Big Macintosh might not be of unicorn genius, but he holds a hidden genius that could revolutionize how technology is used in Equestria, something that the farm holds back on.
The same could be said of her sister Applebloom. She might not know it, but the little crusader shows a hidden knack for construction, even if the Crusaders themselves don't realize it. There is also something else she also hides, something more subtle, but even of perhaps greater potential.
All in all, Applejack wouldn't be surprised if her talent was something non apple related. As for Granny Smith, she might have had been once a proud apple bucker during her younger years, but in her ailing old age, all she can do about now is cook.
That means the whole future of the farm falls squarely on Applejack's shoulders.
She doesn't have time nor the desire to find and fornicate with some stallion or mare, her duties demanded that she give her all to the future of her livelihood. So she didn't expect anything much one cold morning when a mysterious pegasus crashes into the barn that is undergoing renovation.
A very "famous" pegasus to be matter of fact, who flees a most tiresome life, desperate to just settled down and find some simple peace. Both Applejack and this mystery pegasus will find out life is never simple, especially when their fates are intertwined with something most sinister.
