A broke, anxious mess with a sweet tooth. Usually tired or hungry.


Pear Butter and Bright McIntosh have recently passed. What remains of the Apple Family find themselves in the care of their newest family member. But they can't do everything to provide for the new foal on their own.

An ad is placed.

A position is filled.

But loss is a thing that affects each individual differently. And new faces can be both a curse and a blessing.

Interesting take on their parents' deaths, and honestly, this one sounds the most believable out of any theory out there, in my opinion. This is cohesive, well-written, and a tearjerker. Good work!

Powerful stuff. Have a fave and follow from me.

thanks so much! i almost didn’t write it cause it seemed like sad for sad’s sake, but i think it turned out pretty good c:

That... That was absolutely beautiful. Powerful stuff man. Not often I care for an OC this much, but... By god I wanted to give Rosemary a hug.

It's okay, I didn't need my feelings today. You can have them. Beautifully written, and a perfect example of bittersweet. Lovely work.

i’m glad she left such an impression on you, thanks for the compliments c:

i tried to make something sad, but special. glad it spoke to you

Just....whoooo....I need a minute after reading this one....

take your time, it’s heavy stuff

Thank you for hurting me.

*shakes your hand* thanks, i try

So sad...Rosemary apparently had a late/mid-term miscarriage...at least now it looks like she has another baby. Her new baby won't be Skylark, but hopefully it'll grow up knowing about it's big sister that it never met. I want a sequel now where we get to meet Rosemary's baby (Uh...not THAT Rosemary's baby...although it would be interesting) and Apple Bloom learns about the first pony she called Mama, and why. I like Rosemary as an OC. She's perfect because she's NOT perfect. She has problems. She's not an all powerful alicorn/unicorn or super fast pegasus. She's not even a super strong Earth pony (physically, mentally, she's incredibly strong). She's one of the most realistic OCs I've seen in a long time. Well written. I'd love more of Rosemary's story for sure, especially her life with the Apples, and, perhaps, how she became an Apple for real. Through adoption, or through marrying an Apple family member, making her new foal an Apple by name and blood. :heart::applecry:

im glad you liked the story c:

if i can think of an interesting enough premise, i could imagine a sequel, but it’d have to be something special

i think something that lends to Rosemary as a character is that i never gave her a physical description, so she’s all personality. you feel for her as a person (pony) rather than a “____ earth pony with ______ eyes, etc.” even i don’t know what she looks like ha

Welp I'm sad now

we aim to please

thanks for reading c:

Really beautiful. Well done.

thanks so much, glad you liked it c:

:twilightsmile: great story.
