Life can be hard in the Apple Clan, for ponies who don't like farming. Farming is what the Apple Clan does, that's just how it is. But Caramel was never any good at it. He could never focus, and he was always making mistakes. One night, he decided he'd had enough. He was going to run away, and leave all his mistakes behind him.

This fanfic is absolutely charming, yet at the same time introduces serious elements without being "grimdark." Good ol' Caramel . . . I'm glad he finally found his place, or rather, his purpose. It's also a clever explanation of his changing symbol. (In Winter Wrap Up it's briefly caramel apples, and then suddenly . . . it's not.) Great job!

Amazing, simply amazing. :pinkiehappy:

I can't think of anything else to describe it. :twilightsheepish:

I agree with the serious tone without making it dark, it got a little suspenseful in a few places adn that was just awesome. It all wraps up quite nicely too with Tack's talent and it ends with a good solution. I horribly enjoyed it.:twilightsmile:

Wow, really loved the fic. Not really sure what else to say? It was beautifuly written, loved the charactors, loved the story, & loved the ending :twilightsmile:

Though I am curious as to the general reaction when he returns.

These characters you've made are lovely to read about. I think I'll enjoying reading through this story.

Such a sweet ending, and entire story. You're bloody good at this writing gig Kegisak.

Fantastic! You're a natural born writer, Kegisak!

:pinkiegasp: The plot thickens!:pinkiegasp:

Hats off to you and your spectacular writing!:pinkiehappy:

The whole idea of a town where ponies are forced to do certain job in order for the town to survive is a great contrast from Ponyville, also the way you've described brumby left a detailed impression in my mind while I was reading your story. Lastly this story was one of the first fan fictions I’ve read and it caused me to get immediately hooked on them, thanks for sharing this amazing story with us.

Every now and then, you'll come across one of those unappreciated treasures. One of those diamonds in the rough that you would've never even found if you didn't take the chance. This is one of those beautiful pieces of work that doesn't truly get what it deserves.

I read this fic quite a long time ago. It has been so long that I had almost completely forgotten about it. I cant believe that I would even think about forgetting this.

The conflict in this story seems so normal on the surface, but was executed so well that it had me through a roller coaster of emotions just waiting to see what was next. I cant say enough how much I remember enjoying this story, and how many times I had re-read it.

Wow. This was absolutely brilliant. Given the recent S5 opener, I was expecting this story to be darker than it was once Caramel made it to the village. I'm glad I was wrong. The characters here were just fantastic, and this is a great backstory for Caramel as well. My only complaint is that it is in need of editing for some occasional errors, but given that it's one of your older stories, that's forgivable. :twilightsmile: You definitely made me tear up at the end... that moral is beautiful.

Keep being awesome. :ajsmug:
