A class field trip gets the Cutie Mark Crusaders talking about their parents. And an off-hoof comment by Apple Bloom gets Scootaloo wondering about something. She goes to Applejack to commiserate.

Revolves around S9E12, The Last Crusade, though that's maybe a spoiler.

I really liked this story because it starts off like it's a "where do ponies come from?" piece (which was very funny!), then it could have become a "where do ponies go" story, but ends up as a really nice "what are ponies made of" (sterner stuff in Applejack's case).

I liked where it was going, and then it just stopped. :(

"My stupid parents took forever to sign this permission slip!" She moaned and bumped her forehead against the floor.

Far be it for me to argue against good old-fashioned Apple family angst, but... wasn’t there a whole episode where all the Apple kids knew that their parents were dead? And I don’t think the characters at this point in the series would buy into such easy euphemisms as this. It feels like season one Apple Bloom in season nine Apple Bloom’s body.

I think the premise is interesting, but you’ve set it at a point in the timeline where it doesn’t quite work to me, sorry to say.

I like when the sads make me go haha

On one hand this is a heart-wrenching story about how we deal with loss -both as children and as adults- but on the other the beginning made me think of this.

Applejack finds out she and Scootaloo share a deep, hidden pain.

Absentee lesbian aunts?
