I write stories.


My own personal headcanon for the story behind the death of Applejack's parents.

Applejack has seen a great many things in her life. Some good, some not so good. Fortunately she has her faithful group of friends to help her out when things get rough. But things weren't always that way. There is a day in her past that continually haunts her, and back then, she didn't yet have the magic of friendship to get her through it.

This one shot details that one night, the night that changed everything.

This was a good story. The way it was written reminded me of "Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry" I think you got across sadness very well but it still seemed hopeful. I haven't seen a story yet going into the death of AJ's parents and I think this story did a good enough job of that. I love the atmosphere you created in the night, really reminded of a book from the seventies or Stephen King's type of writing.
Anyway, this was great, good job!:ajsmug:

2799750 Thank you! I really wanted to convey sadness, but not a complete message of futility. The whole point of Friendship is Magic is that there's always room for hope, even when the night seems darkest. Applejack didn't yet have her friends to turn to here, so I really wanted to show that even though she got through it, she's still struggling. It gives her character a bit more depth.

WOW, this was one of the best short stories I have ever read.:heart: it was really good, but could you make more to it, like an after story? Thanks!!!:pinkiehappy:

Not bad, a little choppy in places, a good proof read or two can help before posting. I've seen this handling before for the loss of AJ's parents. Yours though gives it a more natural feel to it, no overly massive storm, no rogue pegasus with a grudge against someone and the Apples being innocent victims. It's very good, and you have my :eeyup: of approval.

If you'd care to take a look at a different piece about the events surrounding the loss of AJ's folks try this Mac's Tale no pressure though.

That was certainly heart-warming yet bittersweet at the same time. And I love one-shots as well. Great job! :pinkiehappy:

I have a soft spot for the apple family, and this is a good story in its own right, so you get my thumb up and fave.
I pictured Aj's and Mac's facial expression during the ending, it made me smile.

Disclaimer: not only am I writing this from my phone, but I'm also Brazilian and, as such, I apologize for any typos.

I feel real bad now for leaving this on my read later for so long

This was a darn good and well written story, despite it being short. Good work man.
