The doctors didn’t mince their words:  Applebloom would never be able to walk again.  Devastating news, to be sure, but it was her own fault.  Now her roommate, though…  Nothing about her situation was her fault.  It’s important that she understands that.

oooooh
I love this story already!

The clock on the wall opposite her said 9:06, meaning she was in the east wing, and that her family was definitely up by now.

Well it certainly means one of those things. Unless you're in a magic time based teleportation hospital.

This isn't going to have transphobic Rarity is it? Please tell me it isn't that.

If it helps (I know it probably doesn't but still), it's more thoughtless ignorance than malicious.

“She’s like you, Applejack!” Applebloom was up on her elbow again. “She’s, uh… whatchacallit?”
“A Libra!” Pinkie Pie shouted excitedly. “Her birthday’s pretty close to yours, Applejack!”

lmao I woke up my cat from laughing so hard :') great story you got goin' here!! <33

My partner already laughed at that one but she's obligated to think I'm funny, so it's good to know someone else did too~.

I had to stop and think about that one too before it made sense.

Great story so far. Looking forward to more. I generally hate written accents, but you've managed it well.

Well now I'm confused, because I honestly thought with the previous line it was clear enough? I guess I just need to be more concise in the future.

If it helps, I'm pretty sure I got it just from the comments and the content warnings (I haven't actually read the story). Oof. It sounds possibly interesting, but I'm scared to read it. I generally don't care for the dark stuff.

If I'm being honest the Dark tag is easily the most nebulous; I threw it in just to be safe (and for the sweet sweet search results hehehehe). So far it hasn't held to be all that justified as I've written it, though that very well can change depending on how the next chapter turns out.

Very much enjoying this story and I can't wait to read more.

This is really well-written and engaging so far. Helps that it's super cute too \o/

Damn, this was brutally real. Reminds me of when I came out as Gay Gay Homosexual Gay™ to my parents.

You're doing a great job with this, hon. Don't let the loser transphobe downvotes get to you :heart:

I have to say you've been doing a great job writing the Apple family.

Oof this was so well written I was tense too

[dabs] I'm gonna ✨ cry ✨

Mustering every ounce of courage she could, she met that jade gaze with her own, once again doing her best not to cry. “I’m...”

She didn’t notice it at that moment, but the next day, and on several separate days for years afterward, she would ruminate on how, in that instant, she felt like she’d breathed life into herself for the first time.

Sweetie Belle. The name was hers.

Bam. Right to the heart.

Interesting premise so far. The characters are all different from their canon counterparts, but in small, subtle ways. I can tell you've put some effort into this. Coming up with all those new names for Pokémon alone must have been a lot of work, haha.

This hits all the right notes, from every angle. Like, god, I wish I could convey emotion half as good as this with my prose.

Also, an aside, I was so focused on the core narrative that I totally missed that Scootaloo was neurodivergent until this chapter. I thought she was just being really enthusiastic. :twilightsheepish:

Dawwwwww :heart:

Although I feel like this is a good place to start other fics that can touch on other stories like AJ's transition (if they find another hand for the farm or in the future), RD's introductions, Rarity's development with or without her self dicovery...

You did a really good job with building characters in this story.

Still I hope to read more in the future, cheers.

I don't even need to read this yet to say this is one of the best representation stories on here. Thank you for making this. :heart:

Beautiful story, truly <33

Pinkie would have stolen the show, here, if not for all the cute couple energy. Also, while I don't think Red is actually planning on moving to a mountaintop and standing there menacingly, the name fits him really well otherwise. I'm certainly looking forward to further stories set in this AU!

Apple Bloom is two words. Please respond to this comment.
