Apparently, all I write is Applejack.

Hey, it’s Wallflower. I’m not at the phone right now, but you can leave a message, or text me. Or don’t. You probably dialed me by mistake. Beep.” 

Wallflower has a history of depression. One night when Sunset can’t get through to her, she’s forced to go and look for her with the help of a friend. Where could she have gone? Is it too late? Sunset will make sure it isn’t. Wallflower deserves so much more.

I can tell this will be a wonderfully executed somber story from you again. And I can't wait to read later :twilightsmile:

I hope it lives up to your expectations! Thanks for the kind words

Rainbow Dash shifted behind Wallflower.

It should be Sunset at this point

The way this got past like 3 drafts and two prereaders and none of us noticed. Thanks for pointing this out!

No problem, it was a great read.

She didn’t notice Wallflower’s horrified look until she was going to pass her the helmet she had picked up.

I thought that was gonna trigger the guilt again.

And that's the only typo I noticed.

Overall good story, I like it.

God damn that was good, really hits you right in the heart.

As someone who, once upon a time, struggled with crippling suicidal depression, this really struck me in the feels something fierce. Well played. Well played indeed.

Looks good my dude! Elegantly done. Best of luck in judging!

This is such an amazing story; I wish I can favourite something twice. Have a great day! :heart:

She just hoped that it would be enough – that she would be enough. With a nervous frown and a reaffirming pat from Rainbow Dash, who held onto Sunset once more, she sped off down the road in the opposite direction. The wind blew with her, and if Sunset believed in something of a higher power, she’d think it was on purpose; a way to get her a speed boost and lead her in the right direction, but that was ridiculous.

When you're reuniting with the person you love, you don't need directions to know where they're at. Your love for them is your compass.

This was nicely written. Sunset's anxiety over her girlfriend not responding to texts was an interesting take. I used to get pretty bad paranoia issues when people don't respond to my texts. And I'm pretty much always the one that's worrying too much, and they're actually totally fine. They just forgot to respond or whatever.

a simple black screen with the words ‘I’m sorry’ on them.

Careful Wallfower your Canadian is showing :rainbowlaugh: this is clearly out of context but that joke just popped into my head. i'm sorry

I'm not sure how to feel about the ending. I don't know, it's just the whole ending about Wallflower wanting to commit suicide was pretty expected, and it made the long leadup to it not very compelling to read, although it was well written. The premise of the story reads like a mystery, but at the end of the story it doesn't really feel like a mystery was solved.

Overall though I loved the writing quality, and your characterization of Sunset and Wally is much more accurate than mine (and you just had to find a way to sneak Applejack into the story didn't ya? :ajsmug:) I hope this gets the recognition it deserves in the contest. Best of luck in the judging.

Also, P.S. I see you're an AppleDash shipper. In EQG I believe RariJack is semi-canon. :raritywink: :ajsmug:

Thanks for pointing out the typo! Not sure how that got through. Im glad you enjoyed!

10755109
Thank you! I think I did what I intended >~<


10755282
I'm assuming you're better now, which I'm glad for. Thank you for the kind words!


10755300
Best of luck to you as well!


10755302
Thanks! Have a great day as well


10755306
Thats a great way to put it for sure.

Hmm I'm glad you enjoyed and I will consider your critique and keep it in mind for future writings. Although I'm glad overall you thought it was alright! And yes I definitely had to sneak her in there somewhere.

Also I totally ship Rarijack in EQG and I had alluded to that ship originally but you can blame Hap for the whole "they were both in bed" thing happening. But overall, Rarijack TOTALLY canon in EQG, I agree

You know all those notifications you're getting right now? You deserve them. You got me all misty eyed.
