"Writers are vain, selfish and lazy." ~George Orwell


Applejack left her childhood blanket in Appleloosa with Bloomberg, choosing to keep the memories rather than the physical object. She winds back up with it, although not on terms she would have liked.

7th Post!:trollestia:

Cool story bro; sisterhood FTW!

As much as I want to say something incredibly good about this story, I find I'm blinded by the cuteness of it. I'm glad I managed to find this before it disappeared.

And seriously, Applebloom is the best sister ever.

Read this earlier, and saw it mentioned again by none other than Vargas! So, I felt giving you a nice comment about how much I liked your story was only fair! Really sweet and reminds me of something my smallest sister did for me this year (not knitting or anything, but remembering something and being so perfectly timed, it made me teary...in a good way!)

Anyway, have a like, and a Fav!!! :pinkiehappy:

Touching in a way few fictions are these days. Very well done! :eeyup:

Excuse me for just a moment while I assess this situation.





So incredibly cute and well done. Fiercely warming, surely even to the hardest of hearts.

I approve!

It shouldn't be knitting. A knitted scarf, a knitted sweater, sure. But you don't KNIT a blanket, or a quilt.

You SEW a blanket. If Apple Bloom learned to sew, I could believe she sewed a blanket together. Knitting can't make a decent blanket, especially not the kind of blanket that you could put on a bed.

Plus, it would also have been more heartwarming if Apple Bloom was learning to sew/knit to earn her cutie mark in sewing/knitting. Then, after she learns about Applejack's blanket from Braeburn's letter, she would sew it together, choosing to put her knowledge to use for somepony other than herself. (And sewing something as big as a blanket would likely take several days, not just one or two, especially if Apple Bloom is still a beginner.) This way, it sounds less like Bloom was plotting this whole thing right from the start.

But that ending? Thumbsup, and a D'AAAWWW.


143372It took her two months to make, as there was a TWO MONTHS LATER header.

Glad you liked the ending, though!

All my feels! the daww level is through the roof!:fluttercry:

If this doesn't end up in the Featured box, then I'm a Purple Platypus.
My like, my feels, my moustaches. Take them all.:moustache:


1438617 A bit too late now. It only peaked at #21, then it is dying from there.

1438633 Don't give up hope! Never surrender! Believe in the me that believes in yadda-yadda and all that jazz!
Put the word out to all your watchers and fans! This masterpiece of adaawwable must get more reads!

Also, I don't wanna be a purple platypus. My hat wouldn't fit properly.:applecry:

Wonderful, just wonderful:ajsmug:


"They were some of the best ones our lil' tow has ever eaten! "
hem hem.

anyways that was a nice little tale. Though i guess Appleoosa is now a one tree town. o.o

This story managed to make my cold, rock-hard heart just the tiniest bit warmer. Well done.

Grats on EqD!

haha! I was hoping this one would hit EQD someday xD

Oh sure, sewing's a valuable skill when Apple Bloom does it, but it's frou-frou nonsense when Rarity does it. I see how it is. :trollestia::trollestia:

1572596 Maybe it's because one sewed a blanket and the other sews fancy clothes in a town where ponies don't tend to wear them, aside from the occasional saddle, as street wear. :ajbemused:

Naaaaah, it because it's her precious little sister as opposed to a friend she normally wouldn't hang out with if not for Twilight. :ajsmug:

1572596 4131025 And besides, blankets are practical. Clothes however, on a species that, in-universe, noted how they usually go naked, more of a luxury.
Very touching read. I give it a solid 8.5 out of ten. :pinkiehappy:

DAwww!! this was so cute of a story.
