We're Always Here by Graystripe64 We're Always Here by Graystripe64
Before viewing, I highly recommend the links below:

This was inspired heavily by this amazing fanfic that I read today: [link]
and was made while listening to this tear-jerking piece of orchestral music: [link] EDIT: Oh, oh, and this song too, which was just published on EqD today: [link]

Applejack being comforted by the spirits of her parents (my personal versions). The bonds of parental love are eternal, even beyond death. :aww:

LET THE SHEDDING OF THE LIQUID PRIDE, COMMENCE! :eager:

Enjoy!

Your ability with expressions is what makes this piece. You perfectly capture all the complex feelings involved here, and I think this is probably my favorite of all your works.

This is probably one of the many things that made Applejack my favorite pony, she has been through so much and yet came out of it strong, independent and kind hearted. I have been through my own share of tragedy in life and that is one of things that makes me bond with Applejack in particular as a character, it has been 2 years as of today that my father passed away so I understand how Applejack must have felt.

It's a pretty short track, but it plays for a man who knows Applejack's sorrow all too well.

let me ask you... because she has an Aunt AND Uncle Orange, that means that one of her parents has to be part of the Oranges... so, which one would you think would be the Manehattan Socialite smitten by the rustic farm hand and ended up moving to Ponyville and starting a family? regardless of you answer, this is such a touching piece and is just wonderful

In my personal headcanon, I believe their mother to be the Manehattenite. I sort of have her designed as this humble pony born into a family of social elitists, but never quite fit in. She was a little different -- liked to get down and dirty when playing as a filly, and even while baking, her passion. Of course, she always obeyed her parents in being prim and proper, but resented it on the inside. She wanted more out of life, to feel enriched while following her destiny in making the best baked goods she could. Her older sister, who we know as "Aunt Orange" always knew her little sister was a bit of an "oddball" but never dreamed she would abandon her high-class birthright to marry and live with some...FARMER?! She met Haralson while peddling her treats in Manehatten and the two were practically smitten the moment their eyes met...

Uggh, look at me, I'm rambling again! Well, hopefully that answered your question...and more! Thanks for the kind words, too! :aww:

that isn't rambling, that was adorable. I like finding decent ideas to expand on my own headcanon's for the show... Haralson Apple? interesting name, what is your Headcanon name for the mother?

Fanfics aren't usually my thing, but damn I have to say that was one of the best things I've read in a while. It gives us an idea of who the characters really are, even if the actual developers haven't gotten that far in depth, it gives us the opportunity to build on who these characters are. I like Applejack honestly, she has probably experienced the most hardships out of everybody, making her strong as she is now.

I know this is supposed to be emotional and sentimental, but that face is kinda funny yet creepy. That's, "The horse that passed gas" look. And considering this is My Little Pony, that makes it more hilarious. Great picture, Major props, but that face...
