A nice short story. Even got me a little saddy-waddy at some parts, but anyways - thumbs up!

Very emotional. You captured it very nicely!

If this doesn't get featured, I hope this website burns. :trollestia::trollestia::trollestia::trollestia::trollestia: 5 trollestias to you.

A thumbs up and fave from me!

ok, now I know I still have a heart...

oh, fuck it, you sir are a genius, an evil genius :fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry:/5

I enjoyed this story, Thanks for the read.

Nice story. Liked, might favorite later.

I felt the accent was a smidge overdone but other than that it was a beautiful tale. Good show.

Amazing. You are getting a like! :trollestia:

I think you should remove the mane 6 tag, since they only got a cameo.

...*sniff*Is it bad to say I was reading this story while listening to this song:

sorry bro, english isn't my first language, there, edited, are you happy now?

D-Darn it! Now you got me acting all sappy:raritydespair::fluttercry::raritycry:. This was a masterpiece and darn right should get featured!

I played this while reading the story,and clapped when I got to the statue part. If Lauren Faust were to read this, I know for sure she'd approve. From me, you get a 5/5 :twilightsmile:

1061244>>1059117>>1058965

I wanna thank you guys, and everybrony who posted here and read this story and shared his or her thoughts. Thanks for getting this story in the feature box at the number 7 spot as of this writing, and thanks for your very kind words. PhantomRoxas, I'm not sure if Lauren Faust would approve, since this was geared as a kid's show and I'm no mind-reader so I wouldn't know what she'd think, but I'm glad you do.

1059805
Naw, it isn't bad.

1059700
It's true they only show up at the end, but they DO play a very important part in the story. So they're in the tag-box.

This was beautiful. Thank you for writing this masterpiece.

1061412

Goooood :c.Over all,good story.I really love the idea of the family trying to hide the fact that Applebloom/Applejack/Big Mac's parents were dead to Applebloom,only trying to protect her :/.

Wow, that teared me up :fluttercry:
Beautiful story.

2 people had to many tears in there eyes to tell the difference between the like and dislike button.:raritycry:

this story..these writers.....there the reason why i have faith in humanity, Why? because it shows mee that we still have hearts

SIr, you are now orded by humanty to wright a sequal of some sort inluding theparents death and why Applejacks so torn up. I await with perked interest.

1067682

I understand, but I felt it would be better for the confines of this story to simply focus on the aching void a person's death leaves behind in the lives of his or her loved ones. Basically, focusing on the after math as opposed to the how.

I have other sadfics in mind, focusing on the pain and angst of some of the other characters, so you might wanna keep a Watch on my account either way. And maybe read some of my other fics while you're at it. Nudge, nudge.

1067816

Darn.

Well it's for the best anyway. I'm already wrighting a fic myself with my own vertion of Apple Tree and Peaches death so i probably would of been biased reading your veiw anyway. I'm not going to PROMISE to read your next work, since i'm a man of my word and have become increasingly busy as of late so i may not have time. But i will try my best to do so if you try your best to keep content at this level of feals.

1067816
Agreed. Stories like this don't need... nay, would in fact suffer from a sequel. The emotions themselves, not the events that caused them, are the focus.

Five sad Apple Blooms for you!
:applecry::applecry::applecry::applecry::applecry:

Actually, I had planned this one a month or so before reading Sweet Apple Acres: A Love Story, although I gotta say, yours was better in terms of its meaning. Mine focuses on the by-now tired fan speculation that AJ's parents have passed away, while you came up with something new and unique.

The happy ending originally wasn't going to be apart of this story, in fact. I was going to end it with the line in which the family members held each other, but I felt that it was just too negative an ending. I like my endings bittersweet: Applejack will still miss her parents, but with those two statues out by her front gate, she'll always be reminded that she is very much loved by her family and friends. Bittersweet endings, I find, are much more believable and enjoyable than just "happy ending" and "downer ending", simply due to the fact that you separate the ending's elements into the win/lose columns, and they tend to really make you think.

:pinkiegasp: This. :pinkiesad2: Was. :pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy: Beautiful!!!!!!:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy: I loved this story DX It was SO SO sad but it was SO SO GOOD!:heart::heart::heart:

This has been a part of my headcanon (minus the statues) for a long time, but this is the first fic I've read that does the theory justice. You captured the emotion beautifully. Your writing isnt perfect (for one thing, I thought the constant repetition of "It was time for AB to grow a little older" got a little tiring and wasn't used as effectively as it could be. There were a couple of technical errors and this typo: "Applejack lie on her side on her bed" made me very :rainbowwild:. But all in all, a good piece of writing.

1398023

Well, the repetition of Apple Bloom getting a little older was meant to be kind of a theme. Despite AJ being in the title, Bloom is the real star of this story, and the story is about her being alerted to the concept of death and mortality, thereby making her a little older.

Applejack lie on her side on her bed... Hmmm. Coulda done without the "on her side" bit.

Thanks for the critique, it's rare that I get any.

1400614 I got how it was supposed to be a theme, but such devices should still be used sparingly. It would have been better, IMO, if you had used the line, say, three times: once at the beginning, once in the middle, and once at the end. This way we hear the same line and it creates a theme, but each time we hear it, the meaning is changed slightly. That, I think, is more interesting than using it several times in quick succession.

1400659

It's funny. I was just making up an excuse before, but now that I go back and read my own work, I find that there's a different feel to that whole Apple-Bloom-Grow-Up aspect.

It captures what Granny Smith is feeling. She dreads the moment that this is leading up to. She doesn't WANT Bloom to grow up, but knows that for her own good she will have to. So basically, it's Granny Smith telling herself, over and over, "I hate this, but it has to happen," trying to force herself to just get on with it. Get it over with.

1400740 Different interpretations. Anyways. I'm gonna start on one of your long-ass fics now. Which would you recommend?

1401182

OHO BOY.

Lessee here, now... I haven't updated "Twilight Sparkle and the Witch Baby" for like... since April, I think. It's my very first published fanfic, even though I don't think I'll ever be able to finish it. But since it's my very first, I recommend that one first.

1401528 Very well, good sir. I'm not a speedy reader so it might be... Let's see... 72k words... I have no clue. A week or more, til I finish. I'll be sure to get back to you on it.

WHY ARE SO MANY ONESHOTS SAD

But... beautiful.

You're really, really good.

1548638

I wanna say most oneshots are sad, because if a sadfic goes on too long in the hands of a talented author, it may cause some bronies to commit suicide.

Those who disliked this work of art obviously have no heart.
I salute you author! :pinkiesad2:

You made ME cry. What a touching story. :heart:

You made applebloom cry:applecry:
You made ME cry!
This story is amazing but now I have to cry:raritycry::fluttercry:
Well done!!!:pinkiesmile:

1060318 (Hugs the green aND black Pegasus)

Eyes moist, wife wondering why her hubby is about to bawl, well done. :fluttercry:

3783361

Tell your wife you love her, dude. Thanks for the comment!

Good story, and well written for the most part. But I find it pretty tough to read the dialogue, especially since a lot of it doesn't necessarily reflect the ways the characters actually talk. We have their accents in our heads; readability is priority.

3784191

Do you mean this in terms of sentence structure or phonetic spelling? I honestly prefer spelling their words phonetically as opposed to something robotic and flavorless. That's why I love accents and dialects -- it gives their voices color!

3784201 It's the phonetic spellings that make it tougher for me to read. Another (famous) author who did this sort of thing is Orson Scott Card, in Prentice Alvin. There are chapters where the dialect is so thick, even in the narration, that they're unreadable.
