Radiant Dawn

Write what you know; write what you feel. Give life to that which lacks it, and mend the heart of they who need it most. Love, laugh, and cry. Never be afraid to be yourself. This is me.


It is a lesson we all learn early; life is unfair. Oftentimes life gives little to nothing back to reward those who make it through her trials, but that does not keep the strong from hoping.

When life itself hangs in the balance, we realize just how precious it is, and it can help us to realize that which we have overlooked many times before.

Rated T for language, use of alcohol, and suggestive situations.

All characters are humanized.

Story is inspired by johnjoseco's art, "Oh AJ..."

Off to a good start there Radiant, I look forward to reading more :twilightsmile:

I cant wait to see how this turns out. :pinkiehappy:

I've always been a sucker for good romance stories, and this is a very promising intro. Looking forward to upcoming chapters.

2363636 I've got big plans for this story, so I hope you'll enjoy.

2364565 It'll turn out...as it turns out.

2376352 Good, as there's much to come.

“Glad Ah got tha ‘Rainbow Dash Seal of Approval’ then.” he joked.

I see what you did there

ah, the next chapter. wonderful.
im enjoying this fic...
looking forward for more

Well this is certainly more intricate than I initially expected. Good chapter, I enjoyed it quite a bit.

2422013 Always.

2422062 And what, pray tell, did you expect?

2422797 I thought it would be pretty much exclusively an Applejack x (insert character here) ship. Don't get me wrong, though, it's really good!

2424810 While AJ is a main character in the storyline, I'm sure you can tell by now that she isn't the focus of the story.

Damn, that was.... well. Definitely a "strong" chapter. I feel sad for Mac, but hey, he's gettin all the ladies (forgot to turn his swag off it seems).
One thing that's bothering me... Is Apple Bloom his daughter or like in canon his sister?
Obviously, I'm not expecting you answering me right away, so maybe just a lil' hint?

Like always mr Radiant, you're showing your class.



2730537 I don't mind answering you, as the answer's in the story itself, but since you didn't quite understand, I'll spell it out for you and anyone else that might be confused.

Applebloom is in fact Big Macintosh's daughter, though raised as his sister instead. Clearly when he had a child at such a young age, he wasn't fit to be a father. More will be explained later on about the situation, as well as where her mother is, but for now all you need to know is that for all Applebloom knows, her father and mother were Applejack and Big Mac's father and mother.

Even here on Earth such a thing has happened throughout the ages. Only fairly recently since the boom of reality TV and shows like "16 and Pregnant" has underage parenthood become more prevalent. In the past, it was not uncommon for the grandmother to raise the child as their own, while the true mother or father was passed off as a sibling.

In Big Mac's case however, it was an easy fix. His mother and father were already gone, so Granny Smith simply told Applebloom that she had a big brother and big sister (instead of a father and aunt), and that mommy and daddy were gone.

Hope that answered your question.


Hell, now I'm even more curious.

Dang... Now there are TWO stories I want to hear from this. One where Mac met Blooms mother, and where this kind of Big Mac and Pinkie actually DID fall in love. An alternate reality to this world. Maybe as just a one-shot of Mac remembering the past, I don't know, 5-10 years of being friends with, then dating, then marrying and having kids with Pinkie Pie Apple. Or would that be just Pinkie Apple? Pinkie Apple Pie? Eh? :applejackconfused::applejackconfused::applejackconfused: Now I all confuzzled... :facehoof::facehoof::facehoof:

.....awesome!!!!!!!!.....go home dash.your drunk:rainbowkiss:

Aw yiss, I'm glad I faved this all those months ago! I missed it

3977296 I've got big plans for this story. Glad you're enjoying.

3977319 That makes me a happy man! I look forward to it :pinkiehappy:

3977296 this my friend is something we have in common ^^


So, how big are these plans? ;p

4632481 Big enough. A shitty work schedule has kept me from updating anything recently, but I hope to get back on that soon.

Holy :pinkiegasp:. After four years, one of the first stories I ever read on this site has updated. THE FUN HAS MORE THAN DOUBLED!!!
