Wolfie 03

No one is really a grown up. They just act old because they have to. - An anonymous little girl to her big sibling.


Applejack is a simple farmer, Rarity is a complex and up-and-coming fashionista; two very different personalities and two very different lifestyles. So different that they had very little contact or interaction with one another until a certain lavender unicorn came to town and six near strangers became the best of friends.

Can Applejack and Rarity learn to get along or are they just too different? This is the story of a simple farmer and not so simple fashionista....

So after the end of your Octa Scratch story, you dare make a Rari-Jack one!!!!!!!!

Thank you so much:raritystarry::ajsmug:!

3511667 LOL:rainbowlaugh: Of course you'd be the first one to comment. Yes, you're portraying of AJ and Rarity was so good that I went in search of other Rarijack stories and decided it was a better pairing than Rarity and Spike. :rainbowlaugh::pinkiehappy: Enjoy :twilightsmile: :pinkiehappy:

Just finish the chapter, and it was quite good :twilightsmile:
(Small remark, you mentioned Hoity toity as a unicorn.... I think... He's an earth pony) but other than that, it was good!:raritystarry: Have a like and a Fav

3511730 so he is :trixieshiftright:, I must have just mentally classified most of the Canterlot snobs as unicorns. :trixieshiftleft::trixieshiftright::trixieshiftleft:

It's fixed now though, thanks for pointing it out. :twilightsheepish::twilightsmile:


you may want a short description to attract more readers; otherwise it is blank

Glad I could help.

Applejack was being a tad too helpful..... reminded me of Spike somehow.... without the annoying adoration part.
But I guess that I'm just used to AJ sending Rarity away whenever the fashionista asks her something in connexion with Modeling or Froufrou-y things... (Probably that Applejack likes manual labor.... as well as the white unicorn of course :raritywink:)

3511837 well, I have something in the short description, but I guess it's a little bland. I'll try to spruce it up. :pinkiesmile:

3511856 I see it as she's trying to make things simpler for Rarity to try and show that everything doesn't have to be so complicated and dramatic, but I guess that doesn't come across too well right now... :applejackunsure: I'll work on that in the next one.


3511879 ah nevermind, it was at the point it stopped showing the short description here. I think it's fine.

My only real complaint is that you use "the gray white unicorn" to describe Rarity way too often. I started counting at one point but it became too much of a hassle. Other than that, I'm liking this story so far.

3522697 i do describe the ponies more often than just stating their names... :applejackunsure:

I'll try to make sure not to go overboard with it (here I thought I was saying farmer too much:ajsmug:) :twilightsmile:

Glad you like it so far:pinkiehappy:


3522697>>3523430 as editor I will start looking for things like that, and together we will try to keep it to a minimum.

This certainly has been a sweet story. Well, everything is really sweet when you have :ajsmug:+:raritywink: paired together.
And I certainly loved the chapter (even if I want Changelings to EAT those Canterlot ponies) and waiting with intrest and bit worry about how and what Applejack is going to do now... :trixieshiftright:

3785536 :rainbowlaugh: Well, it's no where near the invasion so there's still time for them to be roughed up. :pinkiecrazy:

Glad you like it so far and thanks for the comment :pinkiehappy:

Aaah... nothing makes a RariJack story (or any story) greater than Blueblood getting his... plot handed to him, :trollestia:
Although, I doubt this is all over with Applejack trying to be fancy, I just have this feeling... or maybe it's over. Well, looking forward to next chapter!
I'm waiting.
I'm STILL waiting...
WHERE'S THAT NEXT CHAPTER!? :pinkiecrazy::flutterrage:

3848427 Lol :rainbowlaugh: I'll try and get the updates out a little faster, but there's four stories I'm working on at once (including this one) so they all have to have a turn first :ajsmug:

Glad you like it, I'm rather pleased with Aj's dealing with Blueblood as well. :pinkiehappy:

3848514 Heh. Alright. And I can wait and I also understand as I also have many projects to work with than just my current story. Although I have concentrated myself bit more with my current story. So probably have to work with them too soon. :pinkiehappy:

I greatly appreciated what happened to that dear Prince Blueblood.

Also pretty awesome that Rarity likes Applejack for herself more than the fancy Jacqueline persona (as I like to call her):raritywink:

3848583 gosh, I'm starting to think everyone does :ajsmug::pinkiehappy: ('cause I certainly do as well, that part was amusing to write)

As for 'proper' Aj and what Rarity sees in her friend, it's like having your best friend (and perhaps more) do a complete 180 in manners. I know it'd freak me out. Besides, in Sweet and Elite, Rarity choose her friends and didn't try to explain away anything they had done at the party. :pinkiehappy: I figure she prefers them to be themselves over impressing others.

I totally forgot to favorite these four adjoining stories!

Also Well done, glad to see Bluebutt getting his ass hoofed to him.

3850544 :twilightblush: Well, gosh, thanks for the favoring, hope you're liking how they are going. Cause I gotta say, these are going to be some interesting stories.:pinkiehappy:

3850558 I am! And I was thinking to myself, why havent I seen any updates yet? Then I realized I hadn't even favorited them :twilightblush:

3901148 well, that is Rarity to a T after all :duck::twilightsmile:

Don't worry, the accent isn't offensive.

3910407 Ok, because there was another reader who kept mentioning it as he read the CMC story and Gwg and I started to worry about whether or not the accent really was annoying others.

Thanks and hope you like how it's going so far :twilightsmile:

3910413 I'm from Georgia, and I don't find it offensive at all. And I can't really understand how it could offend someone.
Ps- I'm loving the story so far!

3910424 I don't know, maybe as a stereotype of what southern ponies (and people I guess) sound like and having it spelled out...? Yeah, don't know either but some people are just weird.

Glad to hear you're loving it (sorry, no McDoubles to give out though:pinkiecrazy::twilightsmile:)

Uh, wasn't Discord's escape before Twilight's birthday, AKA Sweet and Elite? Or are you doing one of those non-chronological canon things?

3922413 I consider the timeline to be different because how they have the episodes lined up doesn't make sense (like Winter Wrap-Up is before Fall Weather Friends with only Call of the Cutie in between them, so either time went by really quickly or they weren't paying attention when they posted the episodes)

So I kind of went with what I thought happened timeline-wise. For example, I feel like Discord's thing happened in September (of the second fall that Twilight was in ponyville for), while the wedding of her brother and Cadance happen in March while the Crystal Empire happens in April (of the third spring/winter that Twilight is there); if that helps any.

This is the same for all my stories, would that qualify for the alternate tag then? So others aren't confused?

I since shipping soon. This pleases me greatly.

3925280 Hmmm, a shipping sense... At least it's a bit more amusing than a Cheesy Sense, 'cause that was just a touch too cheesy.:applejackunsure::pinkiehappy:

Unless it's 'since'? Like 'since this and that'? :derpytongue2:

Hmmm, my stupidity surprises even me sometimes.

What's up with this?

extremely pale-blue earth pony

Hoity Toity looks like this!


4036396 I can visualize colors but when it comes to spelling out those colors... and I re-use the same descriptive colors for ponies I feature often, so it's less likely for me to forget them... He slipped through the cracks :applejackunsure: Sorry :ajsleepy:... I think the first time I wrote him, I had him as a unicorn but my editor caught that one. :twilightoops:

Thanks for catching that, hopefully nothing else goes wrong with the coloring. :facehoof::twilightsmile:

Super-Duper-rific-magnificent awesome update :pinkiehappy:
Can't wait for some more amazing :pinkiesmile:... keep it up:twilightsmile:


3925280 hehe, you poor fool, if you had read perfect pitch and Party animal and the bookworm, you would know that Wolfie can be very cruel in making readers wait.

And I am worse.

Good chapter, just fix the spacing between paragraphs. It's a bit off. Also I got an issue about how you describe Sweetie Belle's coat. You say Sweetie Belle has a pale green coat, and then you apply the same description to Granny Smith. Sweetie Belle's coat is NOT pale green in any way shape or form. Same with Rarity, her coat isn't gray white. Rarity's coat Is pure white. Sweetie Belle's coat is gray white. Basically get your colors right. Im sorry but it just irks me.

4147118 Kay, thanks for your input, but I've only ever described Granny Smith with the pale-green thing (just went and checked by searching for 'pale-green').

As for Rarity's coat color, it says on the MLP wikipedia that her coat is light gray, same with Sweetie Belle. If you'd like, i'll switch to saying light gray, but I've been using gray-white (as in, not quite white with a tint of gray) for the whole story... :applejackunsure:

Though to be fair, I've gotten side almost-shows-up-in-only-one-chapter character's colors wrong before (with Hoity Toity being the big one, which I have gone and fixed).

4147502 Oh I thought I saw you describe SB as pale green once. I may be wrong. Sorry.

4147513 It's ok, I have gotten ponies mixed up at times, but I went to make sure just in case. I do appreciate the feedback and I understand the annoyance of wrong colorings, finding them distracting when I read other stories as well.

CURSE YOU!!:flutterrage:
Now I must clean the floor, while searching for those ninjas with onions you sent!

But in all seriousness, again a great and emotional chapter, just like last one. So now waiting with lot of excitment for the next chapter! :pinkiehappy: And eventual :ajsmug:x:raritywink:

PS: Oh yeah, also waiting to see how you will deal with Spike. It has been rather nice add since very few RariJack's seem to concertrate on it. But then again, it depends on the writer and the story. Am I right?

oh rarity why are you so dramatic

does any else have a feeling like rainbow dash is gonna yell 'just f@#k already' to rarity and applejack
seems like something she might do at this point

4211600 Yeah, especially since I actually forgot about the little guy at first. :ajbemused: He started to return to my mind during the Harvest Feast chapter, so yeah we'll actually see more of him for a few more chapters:ajsmug: One does have to watch for ninjas, they are hard to find, the little buggars.

4211807 Rarity is dramatic, she almost felt like Pinkie Pie with how she just kept going and going. And I think Rainbow was more focused on why a farmer and pretty much equal competition for her was suddenly acting and taking those kinds of interest. And wants to mess with them.:rainbowdetermined2:

Glad you both like it! :pinkiehappy:

Great chapter! Though I noticed, that Rares likes tp use verbal low-blows...

Damn you, Marshmellow, don't you see that you're hurting the love of your life?

Keep it up, mate! Ship them like FedEx!

4235928 Well, she was trying to get a reaction, hopefully a truthful confession. She wasn't going to hold back :duck:

And she did get a reaction, just not the one she was expecting or ready for. :pinkiehappy: Not that she really even heard it but still... :twilightsmile:

Glad you liked it! :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

................... OH COME ON!!!! JUST BANG ALREADY!!!!!:flutterrage::flutterrage:

Sorry, I gotta let it out of my system :twilightsheepish:

Anyway, it was a great chapter^^ Full of nice moments, and a few frustrations (good frustrations, I assure you :raritywink:)

I'm waiting for more of it :twilightsmile:

4351503 LOL :rainbowlaugh:

You haven't read Party Animal and Bookworm have you? :ajsmug: I like to make sure they have proper build up before any type of relationship goes on :pinkiehappy:

Glad to see you're liking how it's going so far. :twilightsmile:

I like long build-up just fine,
it's just that sometimes you want to push them together when they're being silly: like when Rarity didn't hear AJ at the end of the previous chapter ....:ajbemused::rainbowderp:
