Applejack was happy for Rarity, she really was. Moving to Canterlot to pursue a rather unique oppurtunity made sense... but it didn't help her feel any less homesick. As Rarity works on special dresses for the biggest fashion show of the season, Applejack dreams of where the fields are, where the summers are wet and the winters clear.

Happy is she who knows the causes of things--and as Rarity begins to understand the underlying problems with Applejack's discontent, perhaps she can find the right words to say.

Definitely an interesting start. Looking forward to more :twilightsmile:

Incomplete? Obligatory MOAR!
Will they move back to Ponyville? I can't really tell, need more story.

1455919 :D

1456045 :c Unfortunately, I meant to push completed... this is a oneshot! But there's always the chance I might return to this idea.

1456057 You silly, Rarity says that they're going back. :P It's the future after that that's uncertain. Also thank you for reading! :3

1456273 I see no problems with that :rainbowlaugh:

Make the cloppiest sequel ever. :pinkiecrazy: s-s-so much marshmallow

1456315 ...only for you. yes.

:pinkiesmile: m-m-m-m-marshmallow...

That's a pretty sweet start. The only problems I can find is there is something weird about your sentence flow but I'm not sure what it is, I might actually be imagining it, Ill post again if I can identify it.

this story was O-kay :raritywink: that ending was just cute :ajsmug:

I thought so, but was unsure if it was being left open ended for the reader to imagine. I've seen some incorrectly labeled stories before, and this felt like it could maybe be an ambiguous end.
That being said, dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/Rarity_lolface.png dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/Applejack_lolface.png

1457003 ha. More like how pretentiously read. :P

Thankya! :D

Well, you crushed me with all the cuteness, so I don't have much to say, except.... :yay:

I really liked the whole 'Applejack moving even though she doesn't want to' to make Rarity happy thing, and all those small stuff Rarity did to make AJ happy, like the little window garden. It just hits the feels ya know?

1520970 The little window garden was my favorite part of the initial idea. I just had this picture of Rarity kind of like watching her and adding plants here and there, trying to help. Being generous. One or two of those little mini potted tree things.... some flowers every now and then for the table...a little window garden that she tends herself... I really wish I could've done more with that. I'm glad you liked it, and thanks a lot for reading! :)

this is one of the best rarijack fics i have ever read and ive read alot of them well done :raritywink:

1528160 That's high praise! Thank you. :)

ok this was awesome!!!

Pow! Right in the feels! :yay:

So amazingly adorable! :rainbowkiss:

1608703 hurrah! Glad to hear it. :3

1608899 Feels acquired. :3 Glad you liked it. I have a soft spot in my heart for this one.

A nice soft story, nice to read but it makes me sleepy with its rhythm. Great job. :twilightsmile:

1627957 Glad to hear it!

It's strange. I seem to have only two modes: calm long walks and frantic corridor chases

Quite lovely! As with most well-crafted pieces, I can hear Rarity and AJ in this, and they never sound out of place. I was going to cover the "Ponyville vs Manehattan / Canterlot" dilemma for my own RariJack needs, but now I'll have to rethink the angle, this story having dealt with it so well.

Some very minor corrections:

kept in touch with the branch heads back home and a northwards towards Manehattan. = do you need the "a"?

the tell-tale sounds of apples falling neatly into yet another waiting baske: = basket

“Looked good to me,” shesaid, = "she said"

You sick little monkey!

Wow. That was beautiful. I wish I could say more, but I don't know. Both characters were so spot on, and I felt how strong their relationship was, considering it isn't even cannon. So innocent and beautiful. What these two do for each other (like Applejack moving for Rarity's sake) brings the feels, alright. No other words can describe my thoughts on this, only action:

*tosses away all papers with ideas for Rarijack fanfiction because this story made my ideas pale deeply in comparison* :rainbowlaugh: Great job. Up-voted and faved easily.

1765997 I'm really glad you liked it, friend! Thank you

Haha. No, try an' write. You should take what you like and learn from it! :D

Very impressive fic about what can sometimes be a difficult ship to pull off without going OOC :pinkiehappy:

2329082 I'm glad you liked it!

Hm. I really do think that Rarijack works. It's not my favorite, but I think that in Rarijack (as with Raridash) it's a lot about finding what one does not have. Rarity looking for something dependable, Applejack wanting something perhaps a bit beyond her rustic world. It's AJ's that can be hard.

Must... not... cry...
I decided to go after some of your older stories, figured RariJack was a good place to start as any. And I think I made the right choice. That was lovely. :heart:

2440856 There's a soft spot in my heart for this one! :3

The timeline gets a little fuzzy in places; it seems like some of the time transitions could stand to be a little clearer.

But the feels in this really blow that little complaint out of the water. This is a very good, very in-character take on a question that is important to any long-term ship with Applejack in it. Her feelings of homesickness are covered very well. I love that it's never something quite so bad that AJ can't take it anymore, but rather just this constant wearing on her. The way she grins and bears it for Rarity's sake and the way Rarity does her best to make it easier for her in any way she can all speaks of love way more than any amount of cute cuddling or smooches ever could convey.

Very, very good. I'm glad I came across it.

2548440 And I'm glad you liked it. I actually agree, the transitions might have been a bit smoother. Heh. I was still usin' "ah" for I back in this one! heh.

I really enjoyed working on this one. I was kinda living what she was feeling--being away from home, as a Mississippian (we are cursed with a sense of place that is hard to describe)--and so this story was really good for me to write, especially after rereading Virgil in the school library and feeling sort of nostalgic.

I really liked this one. Huh. I'm surprised to see it have so many views! I guess I haven't been watching, but it makes me happy. Thankya again
