Applejack will always love you 'cos that's jes' how she is, sugarcube <3


Twilight's trying to find out what makes earth ponies special, and her efforts start a chain of events that lead to Applejack and Rainbow Dash hooking up, and Applejack trying to be the iron pony to the point of endangering herself seriously. Grimlight- the cast go through a lot, but don't lose heart or become cynical, and the endings are happy. Kindle version available, linked in chapter one!

Wow.... Just wow. Absolutely incredible story, I'm not even sure what to say.....

“When it’s funny!” She winked, as if to a camera nobody saw.:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:
That alone earned you a 5/5

I agree with Art of Shadow, this story is amazing :yay:

Thank you so much. I can't really go on without seeing some ponies liking this stuff, not after all the criticism I've got- it's made the story better but also makes me long to give up. I just wanted to do better than 'worse than more than half the fics out there' which is how I did the first time (on EqD).

I'll keep tryin' and thank you for the nice words- it means more than you know. :ajsmug:

Nice start, please continue to make more. :ajsmug:

Funny thing is, before Heart's Warming Eve, this ability of all three pony races to form a sort of heart-meld to do magical things through a unicorn was NOT canon...
And now what was mere fanon now has canon support, so I'll come out with it- YES the love of Dash, Pinkie and Fluttershy is part of what made Twilight and Rarity able to do that (and Rarity, able to assist in a spell she couldn't actually do). :ajsmug:

Buffing unicorn magic via love from all pony races- canon! And I wrote it before it was official :derpytongue2:

I demand more! This is too good to let it fall by the wayside.

i love how you actually managed to write and describe in detail how much agony AJ was going through. i'm not being weird but it gave me an idea of how much pain she was in. my legs felt weird throughout the whole crushed legs+aftermath scene x3

yummy story :'3



I think that's an example of the TVtrope 'I knew it!'

Also, where are all the reviews?

Needs more reviews and likes. Because this is simply awesome!

Very emotional and very in depth with the character. Rather amusing how Twilight is still rather naive in such a tense situation.
I really do wonder whenever or not Applejack will start to relax now...

And that's a wrap- completed! :ajsmug:

Huh. That seems rather an odd place to end it. Its not necessarily a bad place, but.. I totally did not expect it to be the end.

That was quite a tale of misery and comforting. I really was impressed with the detail about the farrier!

An interesting way to end... but I like it. Its good to have things come full circle if you will. With Dash having to be supported by Applejack now.

Thanks, folks- that was where the first two chapters needed to go, because AJ's 'iron pony' act had to grow up a lil' and for a long time that was unresolved.

I don't think it would be safer for Rainbow Dash to be in the air during a storm. Lightning is in the air longer than its on the ground, and it can strike you at any point, airborn or not. Anywho, it made me sad to see super mean Applejack, but this story is very interesting. Nice work :pinkiehappy:

That was a wonderful read 10/10 no doubt. :ajsmug:
But there are two things need a bit of changing. First, the beginning was a bit of a read, as in I had to go through it a couple times to understand the situation. Second, I notice in the last chapter that you said Rainbow Dash saved 3 ponies, two of which were part of the Wonderbolts. She actually saved 4 ponies, three of which were part of the Wonderbolts. :rainbowdetermined2:
Just fix those two things if possible (mostly the second one). Otherwise, that was an amazing read, and don't feel down for the commentary. I have seen many fictions that have had countless mistakes. You happen to be the one with one of the least amount of mistakes. Great job, and keep up the awesome work! :raritywink:

631212 Hope you know, when you get stuck by lightning in the air, you won't get hurt really any compared to what it would be if you were on the ground. That is why you are told to never hold onto a telephone wire or any electrical wires when you are grounded, because electricity needs a natural flow. Ground, being a type of material that cuts the flow of electricity, can cause it to sit in your body and cause severe damage to your body. When you are in the air, nothing in your body cuts off the flow of electricity, so it will just pass through you without causing anything more than rubbing your feet on the carpet and touching a metal pole.

I love the story so far

439147 and save the lives of three ponies, including two Wonderbolts,
That's four ponies and 3 Wonderbolts

great story

hehe.. all right, all right! I'm on it. I was busy writin' other things... :rainbowlaugh:

958139 Lol, sorry, I didn't mean to put the stress on you or anything.:twilightblush:
This story is really great, and I am glad to add it to my favorites. Keep up the good work!:ajsmug:

From hell, to you, and back again,
Soto Konoha

That ... was AWESOME! :rainbowkiss:

Needless to say, Applejack is best pony. :ajsmug:

I just don't know how you do it, Applejinx ... this stuff is incredible. :pinkiesmile:

Aw, thanks! :ajsleepy:

..years of applebuckin'? :ajsmug:

LMFAO, Boss Applejack was hilarious at the beginning.

This story is awesome.

I gotta say, the first chapter is the one that appealed to me the most
There is just something about sacrifice that pushes all my buttons

Really well written and touching story. Brings back all the heartache that comes with helping a loved one with their fears.

That was amazing.

Buffing unicorn magic via love from all pony races- canon! And I wrote it before it was official

:-p they know a good idea when they see one.

Very tense. Putting poor AJ through hell.

heh it was kind of surprising seeing raging AJ but i suppose it does make sense given her impediment and crisis over the crops.
I thought Rarity and Twilight were written pretty well in this chapter, Rarity is very keen at picking up on insecurities and twilight is just adorable in her naivety. Then hugs

huh well i didn't expect this kind of ending but it's nice all the same. Though i am kinda curious about the whole beginning with Rarity, i didn't quite catch what was going on there.


I think, that Dash was referring to being above the storm, rather then under it.

Really enjoyable story but it felt really confusing in spots. Mostly the fact that the tapestries are a major plot point but ultimately go nowhere. It would've felt better if the reasons didn't center around something that ultimately didn't pay off. For example they could still go exploring but find nothing. They could've made repeated visits but not having found anything.

Still a green thumb but not a fave.

Aw- well, glad you had some fun. The tapestries are totally a 'MacGuffin', could've been anything- the only real purpose was showing how tough Applejack really was, and then getting her to accept her limitations (and then getting Dashie a hooficure :rainbowderp: )

2078866 *grins and nods* For sure! but to me the Macguffin sort of felt like "OMG look at me we're important!" and then they just kind of vanished.

Thanks for understanding as well that my comment wasn't meant to be an insult but just my honest opinion.:twistnerd:

I liked it i just wish that it could continue more so i could keep reading

And I'm wondering if you're gonna tell us what happened with RD and her first farrier....

Not to mention, Rarity's love of fixing up priceless art. You made that up beore cannon said it was
