"Bad things happen. There's never gonna be a time when everything's perfect, but that don't mean we stop tryin'!" - Applejack


Applejack. Honest, hard working and true. Friendly to everypony and always willing to lend a hoof to those in need. This was the pony that the denizens of Ponyville knew so well. Who they trusted and relied upon. Who's stall they visit in the market, and who's family founded the town itself.

Hers has been a story of tragedy, grief and renewal.

That is the part of the story everypony knows. There is more to her tale, though. A dark secret she harbors from all but a few. A secret which could endanger her family, friends and everypony in Ponyville. . . .

Welcome everyone, to a story that popped into my head randomly while I was in the midst of a rant to myself! Inspired partially by stories like TDR's Twilight Gets a Puppy and Mister Friendly's The Irony of Applejack, this is my own take on the "Rewrite of the series, with a twist" story.

Here's hoping you all like it!

Cover Art belongs to the Internet!

What can I say? You write a good story, even if I don't agree with all your headcanon. Got me inspired. :raritywink:

Reminds me a lot of “Wawindaji”, though that was about Sunset Shimmer and Zecora

After looking it up, I'll have to give that a read! It sounds interesting!


Hmm this could be problematic.

I hope Big Mac will be fine.

Ooooh, I'm really excited to read more of this. Good work!

All hail Pinkamena Diane Pie, Breaker of Chains...er I mean the 4th Wall.

Oh, well, if you like that kinda thing, you're gonna love some of the stuff I have planned. :raritywink: :pinkiehappy:


Bit of emotional whiplash bounceing from silly to serious. Though its pinkie pie sooo...

Well, and it should be mentioned, that she might have acted 'silly' in this case deliberately to stop the argument before it could escalate. If there's one thing we should know about Pinkie, it's that she can't stand to see her friends (or future friends) argue or fight.

Also, there's ALWAYS more to Pinkie than meets the eye, but I'm actually intending to delve into that a bit in this story, although not until Season 2. I have a LOT of plans, for Season 2, and I'm really excited for them.

this is ilegally good writing

Oh, well, thank you! :twilightsmile:

I won't tell if you won't. :raritywink: :pinkiecrazy:

I wonder if Timberjack will fight Nightmare Moon.

Applejack is having a bad day all round. Great story!

I'm hooked, but Pinkie is a little stronk.

If you think that now, just wait until Season 2. :pinkiehappy:

Please have the folowing two things done:

1) don't get to much on the mad scientist twilight with Pinky, AJ and Flutters

2) make a sister story that tells the same story as this but form Flutters's perspective called flutterbat, and please make her be in the townhall when Luna escaped from the moon

I can see why Twilight would jump to Vampire, but I'm thinking Fluttershy is probably a Dhampir, if we're going with traditional folklore.

Well . . . this isn't exactly following real world folklore, this is just . . .

She's a vampire, per Equestria, so, yeah. XD

That said, I will be drawing on a lot of older stuff from folklore to spice things up, with her, so, yeah.

The second one would be great considering that in the show rainbow was stopped by AJ to not make a fool of herself when confronting Luna and the fact that you said pinkie grabbed Rarity and Fluttershy after she was at AJ, and that maybe Fluttershy stayed to help Rarity with the clean up of the town hall after the incident, not to mention the relation between Fluttershy and Rainbow and lot of other things. Also bonus points if you make Rarity a werecat and oppen that can of worms especially with Twilight's interests

I'm not writing another story. This is the story.

This is an AU, things happened differently, here. That's all there is to it.

Yeah but you can write the same story from a different perspective, it won't be the first time someone does it, retelling the story from other characthers perspective, you already have the action planned, just need to change the main character and fill the gaps in it from their view

But I'm not doing that. Okay? You should maybe think a little more before leaving comments like this. Suggestions are fine, but at this point you're just being pushy.

If you want to see a story like that so badly, why not write it yourself, and let me write the story that I'm here to write?

OK, how much, how much do I or someone else needs to pay you to write that story? And this is a honest question, I'm not asking because I'll pay, I can't really do that, but I'm really curious if you take story commissions and how much do they cost

I do not take story commissions. I write what I want to write, and THIS story is what I want to write. NOT the one you're talking about. Now, stop pushing, or I will start deleting your comments.

Is there going to be a fight between Timberjack and Nightmare Moon? Not telling you how to do your story, just saying it would be interesting considering how close the beast was let out last chapter.

You'll have to just wait and see. :pinkiesmile:

The Shadowbolts are a real group, that's a twist.

Also, way to make teleportation sound absolutely horrifying.

Yep. :ajsmug: And, thank you. I was inspired by the theory of what someone would see if they were standing inside of a black hole's singularity. I figured, teleportation rips space and time, just like a black hole, so why not use that? :twilightsheepish:

So... Pinkie does have that second personality here to, also wtf rarity, where did you learned surgery, is it me or all of them have a dark side related to the most comon tropes in horror? At this point is either twilight is the normal one or the necromancer, cause rarity sure is Dr. Frankenstein

That's not surgery, just common first aid, really. My idea is that Rares took a few courses in it, once upon a time, enough to know how to tie off a tourniquet and set a broken bone, CPR, things like that.

And, Pinkie's alternate in this isn't really an alternate, it's just something that happens when she feels upset. Distraught, angry or depressed, and it amplifies the effect of those emotions. We'll be getting more into who she is as we progress through this season.

Yeah... but stil knowing where to cut a wing to make it usles...

Rarity didn't cut the wing. The leader of the Shadowbolts did.

I think he's referring to the Shadowbolt that she shot off of Rainbow. You mentioned that his wing went limp but AJ didn't see exactly what Rarity did.

Well it's been an interesting day now find a new story, binge the current chapters and am now hooked on this AU. I shall happily wait for more of this fine tale!
