The following tale...is true. And by true, I mean false. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies. And in the end, isn't that the real truth? The answer is no.

E

(Set in the "Accomplished Steampunk Scientist Twilight Sparkle" universe created by Egophiliac.)

Twilight Sparkle has gone to the Apple-iance Store to pick up her newest order of parts for her laboratory, and she's brought her Honesty Unit android Applejack along to help get all that cargo loaded. Once Applejack's job is done, however, she has a chance encounter with the store's owners, and it's one that opens the android's world up just a little bit more....

Well, this sure is an interessting Verse and a really good written story.^^

:pinkiecrazy: I have to admit that I was expecting a totally different scenario, at the mention of Robotic Applejack.

I expected her to be cold and unfriendly, like a...well, like a machine.

"I AM OPERATING AT 60% APPLE RETRIEVAL FUNCTIONALITY. OVER 95% OF THE APPLE CROP HAS BEEN CONSOLIDATED, IN FOUR HOURS, FIVE MINUTES, AND SIX SECONDS. MODIFIER: Y'ALL. *BEEP*

"BIOLOGICAL LIFEFORM, NOMENCLATURE: BIG MACINTOSH, ANALYSIS CONCLUDES THAT YOUR APPLE RETRIEVAL ABILITY IS SEVERELY HAMPERED DUE TO YOUR PHYSICAL COMPLAINT. RECOMMEND YOU TRANSFER APPLE RETRIEVAL TO THIS UNIT. RECOMMEND YOU SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION. SENSORS INDICATE ELEVATED HEART RATE, HIGH ACIDITY LEVELS IN YOUR PERSPIRATION, AND INCREASED ADRENALINE OUTPUT. MODIFIER: Y'ALL. *BEEP*"

'BIOLOGICAL LIFEFORM, NOMENCLATURE: APPLEBLOOM, REQUEST YOU STEP AWAY FROM THIS UNIT'S OPERATING RADIUS. ATTEMPTING TO CATEGORIZE 'HUG'. CANNOT PROCESS. MODIFIER: Y'ALL. *BEEP*"

A smile appeared on the "dragon"'s face as he overlooked all the pieces inside. "Wow, Applejack," he said, "is there anything you can't lift?"

'MECHANIZED UNIT, DESIGNATION 'SPIKE', THIS UNIT IS RATED FOR WEIGHTS EXCEEDING ONE HALF-TON; OR, ONE THOUSAND POUNDS, OR SIXTEEN THOUSAND OUNCES."

4484188 So glad to hear you felt that way, thank you. :D


4485031 Apologies for the disappointment, but as I said, this is based on a pre-existing AU, and...well, that's not really how robots work in that 'verse. ^^; Still, I hope you managed to enjoy the story anyway. :)

FWIW, not all robots have to be unfriendly, so don't feel like my entire life fell to pieces when I read your fic.

I reasonably doubt that you were trying to frighten us, as well, so a cold, machine like AppleBot might not be a good fit for the story you're telling here.

4485259 Heh...well, glad t'hear, then. ^_^

First - d'awwww!! and Squeee!! Adorable! Love it!
Second - thanks for introducing me to the tumbler - what a cool AU!

4485774 Hee! So glad you enjoyed, gladder still I could introduce you to the ASST 'verse; it's seriously wonderful. ^_^

It says "The End" but it's marked incomplete. This confuses me.

Also, nice short story. The ASST setting is pretty new, so it's nice to see it getting expanded a bit. Still trying to decide if Applejack or Fluttershy is best robot.

4606475 ...huh. I marked it "incomplete" by accident without realizing it; thanks for catching that, I've fixed it now. ^_^

Anyway! Glad you enjoyed it; I kind of love ALL the Constructs in ASST, in a way that is at once similar and distinct to how I love their Pony counterparts, so picking a favorite is surprisingly tricky right now...but I'm favoring Applejack right now, unsurprisingly. X3

What a lovely story. I'm glad bookplayer sent me your way - I'd already read your most recent story, but I'd neglected to have a look at the rest of your catalogue. Time to correct that!

5594455 Well thank you kindly! I sincerely hope you enjoy the rest of my output. ^w^
