If there is anything the nonconformist hates worse than a conformist, it's another nonconformist who doesn't conform to the prevailing standard of nonconformity.

Awake and alone, Applejack will find a way to survive.




And here's a TV Tropes page, if you're into that kind of thing.

I really like where this is going. Nobody ever does these kinds of things with Applejack. A shame since she's a great character known for her strength and resilience, but equally known for her strong familial and friendly bonds.

#2 · Chapter 6 · 85w, 6d ago · 7 · ·

This was exactly my thought process. I think Twilight's been lost enough times now. Make room for the farm pony. :ajsmug:

#3 · Chapter 4 · 85w, 6d ago · 2 · ·

This chapter is perhaps my favorite thing of yours that I've ever read. The stark imagery really frames the rest of this story quite nicely, particularly in conflict created via Pinkie's mannerisms and gruesomely described expression; a role she fits perfectly.

#4 · Chapter 6 · 85w, 6d ago · · ·

Not entirely sold yet. This is kinda completely different from what I normally read, but by virtue of who wrote it I gave it a chance. It definitely has me interested in knowing what happens, but I don't really know how to feel about the premise and it being Applejack etc. It certainly does give a different take with the change in character from the norm and that should be fun to read. But, like i started with, not entirely sold yet. Favorited just to see where it goes.

Glad you gave it a shot at least. :pinkiehappy:

Hopefully you'll like what I have planned.

#6 · Chapter 1 · 85w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

ya know the mother of invetion is the freelancers spaceship in RVB right?

#7 · Chapter 6 · 85w, 6d ago · 2 · ·

>>1868399

I do know that. It's a good name for a spaceship.

More prudent however, is the fact that it's the second half of the phrase "Necessity is the mother of invention"

And Applejack is certainly going to need to be inventive when faced with the necessity of survival.

#8 · Chapter 6 · 85w, 6d ago · · ·

Good so far, but I just think that the language is a bit eloquent for something concerning Applejack, but bear in mind I have been reading Contraptionology recently, so it's not a complaint, just a little thing for me, but as I said before, I like it :pinkiehappy:

#9 · Chapter 3 · 85w, 6d ago · 3 · ·

Pretty good so far. I wonder if Luna would be able to talk to Applejack in her dreams. . . that could be interesting :rainbowderp:

#10 · Chapter 4 · 85w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

Woah, that was a pretty awesome dream sequence. I liked the way that AJ recognised several logic flaws in the dream but accepted them anyway; something that often happens in lucid dreams.

Heh, you've definitely got me hooked now. Creepy island and dead-dream-Pinkie? Awesome. :rainbowdetermined2:

#11 · Chapter 6 · 85w, 6d ago · · ·

I'm definitely looking forwards to where this is going :pinkiehappy:

#13 · Chapter 3 · 85w, 6d ago · · ·

Small typo

The site of the familiar satellite was a relief.

-sight

#14 · Chapter 6 · 85w, 6d ago · · ·

Small typos:

then Twilight would feel feel terrible about it.

than the thought her own death.

--==--

Kind of remind me old classic Ranma fic: Bliss by Lara L. Bartram and Mike W. Loader

Alone on the island, no memories of how they get there, temples with evil colour imprisoned inside

Also Applejack? Going down? Good luck.

This feels like a side story to Austreuoh.

It is my new Austreuoh head-canon that Applejack got revived after Dash woke up in Blue Shelf and this is the story of her return.

#16 · Chapter 6 · 85w, 6d ago · · ·

>>1871045

Yeah, I finally agreed to let Pilate (my editor for MoW) take a look at this story.

I'll fix those typos now though, thanks. :pinkiehappy:

#17 · Chapter 6 · 85w, 6d ago · · ·

>>1871142

I'll take that as a compliment. I do love that fic. :pinkiehappy:

(The sequel is even better)

#18 · Chapter 1 · 85w, 5d ago · · ·

So it begins...

#19 · Chapter 2 · 85w, 5d ago · 10 · ·

No other wildlife in the jungle? Either this is an artificial place... or she's gonna get a nasty surprise when the moon comes out to play.:applejackunsure:

#20 · Chapter 3 · 85w, 5d ago · 3 · 4 ·

...Wait a minute. :rainbowhuh:

This story was inspired by Minecraft wasn't it! :pinkiegasp:

#21 · Chapter 4 · 85w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

Why do i get the feeling that this was also inspired by Austraeoh/Eljunbyro? :applejackconfused::fluttercry::pinkiecrazy::rainbowderp::raritycry::twilightoops:

#22 · Chapter 6 · 85w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

>>1871532

Maybe a little bit by Austraeoh/Eljunbyro, but I actually didn't notice the Minecraft parallels until after I wrote it. :rainbowlaugh:

Applejack had better watch out for creepers.

I thought she would be on an island. But I didn't think she'd take the revelation so hard. :fluttercry: :ajsleepy:

Yeah, she cares a lot about her family and friends.

Up until now the only thought that had kept her going was the thought of getting back to them as soon as possible.

Now it looks like she might not be able to get back at all. :ajsleepy:

She'll pull herself together though, don't you worry.

#27 · Chapter 3 · 85w, 5d ago · 3 · ·

Her concerns about rustling bushes were immediately shoved out of her mind when a blood-chilling shriek tore apart the nighttime tranquility.

Bloody Pinkie Pie? *shutters* Better move on before I start getting flashbacks to that...other story... :rainbowderp::pinkiecrazy:

I know exactly what you mean.

I'm still curious to see where this story will go...

The next few chapters should have actual stuff happening in them.

I just had to set everything up, and get a full description of the island in there first.

#33 · Chapter 7 · 84w, 5d ago · · ·

I wonder what's ruslting in that grass...

There's... someone else.

Thanks for doing the past few titles, but if it's alright with you, I'd like to take over from here and get to feel useful again.:twilightblush:

I'm Bear Grylls, and I'm going to show you what it takes to survive all alone on a desert island!

#40 · Chapter 1 · 84w, 1d ago · · ·

I see... potential! Will read, so have a fave.

#41 · Chapter 4 · 83w, 4d ago · · ·

Is it okay that when she reached Pinkie Pie, I genuinely started to get scared at the gore-ish description of her features?

#42 · Chapter 7 · 83w, 4d ago · · ·
#43 · Chapter 7 · 83w, 3d ago · · ·

Hope twilight has some sort of scrying spell.

#44 · Chapter 7 · 83w, 1d ago · 1 · ·

Poor AJ. I hope she can find some duck tape on that island. That's all you need to survive on an island. Sounds crazy, but it is true. :twilightsmile:

#45 · Chapter 6 · 82w, 12h ago · · ·

:applejackconfused:: Well... buck!

#46 · Chapter 7 · 82w, 12h ago · · ·

She shook her head, trying to dislodge the fatalistic thoughts.

...Suicide? :rainbowderp:

Side note: Moar please?

#47 · Chapter 7 · 82w, 12h ago · · ·

>>2017603

I will definitely write more, but I haven't updated my other fic in a thousand years so I'm going to focus on that first. :twilightsmile:

Still, I'm glad you like it so far. Trust me when I say that I'm not done with this fic. Not by a long shot. :ajsmug:
