I'm older than your average brony, but then I've always enjoyed cartoons. I'm an experienced reviewer, EqD pre-reader, and occasional author.


Apple Bloom makes her yearly journey with her big sister, one that gets harder every time. But this year will be different. This year, she'll tell Applejack everything, even if it hurts. She couldn't do any less for somepony she loves so much.

This resonated quite well with me, as my father died two months before i was born. I never met the man, so when people ask me how I feel about it, I don't really have much emotional feedback to offer them. It's hard to feel something for someone you never met, and Its hard to miss something you never had.

The worst part for everyone else, I think, is I look almost identical to him, and In many ways, I act like him too, as if he were vicariously living through me, and that makes it hard for everyone else. But that's not the worst part for me. It's the best part. Because, he might be gone for them, but to me, it's like he never left, and he's always there with me. And I have him to thank for everything, my existence not withstanding.

Bravo, good sir. You might not have brought me to tears, but a feel was had. The people i know would call that a success.

...wow :rainbowderp:

Amazing little bittersweet rollercoaster here.

not bad this was interesting.

some left out details here and there but it was fascinating to see Bloom and Jack (most certainly Jack) in a different light.

I'm glad it struck a chord with you. That's one of the best parts of writing: when you can share a connection with someone you would have otherwise never encountered.

This story was pretty good.:rainbowkiss:

I think it is bad to let the wound in your heart fester and bleed every year, but Applejack's reason is because of what it took away. Of course it's easy to say that when you aren't the one in that mindset.

Tears were shed. This was beautiful.

Thank you for this lovely story.

Great story, love Apple Bloom's viewpoint. Greenthumbed!

I liked it. I liked it a lot. Using Apple Bloom's perspective to tell the story made it seem so much more... real, if that's the right word.

Beautifully done! All the details were just so right for the situation as well as for AJ and AB, but your AB just blew me away! I've always felt that AJ and Big Mac have voluntarily put their own personal lives on hiatus just to be the parents AB needs, and having her acknowledge AJ in this regard is beyond heartwarming. Manly tears were shed. :yay:

This resonated with me but in a different way from some others. I know who gave birth to me, but I have never had a mother. When people ask me if I wish I did I have to tell them no, they always look so confused. I didn't grow up with one, I have nothing to miss. My birth mother didn't want me, my fathers love me just fine. But it's hard for other people to understand.

Niiice job, Apple Bloom.

This was emotionally intense. I really worried about AJ when she jumped in the freezing water and what Bloom told her was just heartwarming.
