It is the night after the Apple Family Reunion. Everyone was able to attend; except for two...Applejack decides that night to take a trip deep into the outskirts of Apple Acres; the only place where she could visit them now.
However, when she arrives, she finds them waiting for her...as ghosts, as young as they were when they...passed.
She runs over to the tombstones placed in front of the 2 dead apple trees and reaches out to hug both of her parents, only to pass through them. Applejack sets her hat onto the ground sits in from of them, stunned and in tears, as her parents looked back at her and smiled.
"Ya’ve made us both very proud Applejack" Her father, Apple Cider, says to her.
"Ya’ve been so strong for Big Mac, Applebloom, and Granny Smith" Apple Blossom, her mother says.
Applejack breaks down and sobs harder as the rain starts to fall. "Ah thought about ya both today...about how much Ah wish ya both could've be there with us...Ah wish ya could always be with us again..."
Her father frowned slightly. "Applejack, ya need to let us go. Ya made us more than proud...but ya can't live everyday regretting that we aren't there with ya."
"Don't worry about the things ya can't change; that includes us.” Her mother says with a smile. “Instead, prepare for the good times to be had in the future rather than dwelling on the past."
Applejack wipes away a tear. "Ah’m so sorry..."
Both her parents smiled.
Her mother says "Ya don't need to be sorry sugarcube. Ya need to do just one thing for us; live strong and live happily."
Applejack smiles this time. "Ah will...Ah...love ya both"
Her parents looked back at her.
Her father says "We both love ya more than anything Applejack, ya’ve made us proud..."
Her mother then says "...and ya’ve made the Apple Family proud."
After that, both her parents slowly vanish into the mist, Applejack wipes away her tears, and then goes back to the farm to start a new life for herself, a life focused towards a better future, rather than an irreparable past.
Have some feels. After being in production for around a month or two, it's finally done. I hope you all enjoy it.
Huge credit and thanks to for making all the vectors specifically for this wallpaper. This is just as much his work as it is mine. Huge credit also goes to for coming up with the original designs for AJ's parents
Just before I start I wanna say that this is my first Critique and I don't know how good I am at this.
Starting off your story in the description was inspiring, and full of image. Your picture is amazing I don't know where to begin. The background really sets the tone of the piece which I take to be sad yet calm. Everything about this just screams at me that you have talent and know how to use it not everybody can do that so its nice to see that you can. looking at this almost made me cry even before I read the short story. Your originality is amazing I would have never thought of this let alone have it turn out like this. This piece in short is one special picture that many will love and many will admire.
I have to say, this is very emotional. The look on Applejack just breaks my heart, she just looks so sad in this. But her parents are so happy for her and it is nice to have somepony watching over her.
The art in this is truly amazing, as well as the facial exapressions on Applejack and her parents. The background fits the scene very well, at night over at two graves. But I always thought her parents were dead and gone, but this is very emotional in many ways. Another amazing work of art by Jamey4, keep it up!
