I’m about to cry oh my god why am I so unlucky I mean what did I actually do to deserve this?

So, I had this whole thing written out. Entirely written out, all the terrible jokes, all the explanations no one wants to hear, all of it. It was long, and mostly interesting, and even had a gif at the end, like I never do that, that’s how into it I was. Then, I left it for three seconds to quickly check if I spelled ‘repression’ correctly, and I had, and then I went back and for some reason it was just gone! Gone! GONE! Why are even the simplest tasks so difficult for me to do?

Anyway, ehm, even though this story isn’t told through Rarity’s perspective, it’s narrative is still mostly driven by her scrapbook, which at first mostly contains almost stalkerish pictures of Applejack but eventually leads into the school year, which is the duration of time this story tells or whatever.

The basic storyline is this: Twilight Sparkle, a junior reporter attending Ponyville High begins her school year by delving into Ponyville’s unassuming history in order to figure out the cause of all the magical mishaps happening in Ponyville and how new girl Sunset Shimmer ties in with it all. Her photographer, Rarity Belle, struggles to cope when her mother’s old process camera begins to capture shadows, strange figures and feints of light that aren’t there, while also very awkwardly wooing her romantically oblivious crush, Applejack. Pinkie Pie, resident class clown and conspiracy theorist, attempts to get the attention of Twilight through numerous acts of love, but they ultimately end in misfortune and mess up her investigation. Fluttershy Breeze, an amateur voodoo practicer, keeps getting prophetic nightmares about her classmates, and, more specifically, her best friend Rainbow Dash, whom she had begun developing feelings for. Meanwhile, Rainbow Dash really begins to feel the burn of popularity when her boyfriend, Soarin, and the football team start getting in the way of her friendship with Fluttershy, and with her younger adoptive sister Scootaloo suddenly hospitalised and her parents divorcing, begins to emotionally distance herself from her friends and family. Applejack Smith begins suffering with paranoia and anxiety when touching people leads to them acting on their more sadistic and honest desires, which only gets worse when she begins to do the same with the people she cares about. Eventually it all leads them to the same place; the Everfree forest, where they discover they are connected to both each other and the forest in more ways than one…

Real quick apology to @feellikeaplat because I accidentally gave my Twilight your Twilight’s hair. I swear it was an accident I didn’t even notice until the drawing was finished and I was casually stalking your page and it was too late to change it.

And now also a huge shoutout to my boy @slendyanswers who has been endlessly patient with me and has helped me with many parts of this storyline, which he will be credited for more specifically when they show up! Also, public apology to him too, I know I suck at keeping up conversations and I know I can get weirdly distant and stuff but it’s just I get really nervous when I text people sometimes and I’ve been really busy lately. When I get the time I will absolutely send you a hello or whatever, thanks for being so cool about my terrible social skills.

In other news, I went to see Wonder Woman today and it was AMAZING and everyone should watch it. At the end she does this like care bear stare thing and it’s really cool. Yup yup yup.

Why is Minotaur!Applejack very scarred and has a broken horn? Was she in a brutal fight one fine day?

Her scars is almost always because she, and Big Mac, are the primary protectors of not only the farm but of the family too. And living so close to the Everfree Forest means the odd hungry critter, like timberwolves or sometimes even manticores wander into the farm. It doesn’t happen often but when it does it’s a danger.

Not just wild animals though; saboteurs are a big threat to the family in this AU too, those who want to ruin the family because no minotaur brute should be outselling their produce. It shouldn’t be their family that’s in such good grace the royal family of Equestria, they aren’t even actual Equestrians! 

To sum it up; some are from wild animals, and some are the results of hateful assaults by xenophobic assholes looking to ruin their livelihood, and maybe them too.

As the group walked out of the Everfree Forest, they were greeted by a…rather unexpected party.

Discord: Woo-hoo! Well done, ladies! You’ve done it again! Congratulations!

Discord: How did you do it? With those little necklaces of yours?

Rainbow Dash wasn’t too keen on Discord being so close to her like that.

Discord: Speaking of which, where are those things? You know, the ones that sent me to that dreadfully uncomfortable stone prison.

Applejack: …Gone.

Discord: Gone?!

Before he even had a chance to celebrate, Fluttershy flew over to him.

Fluttershy: But our friendship remains…

Fluttershy: …and if you want to keep it that way, I suggest you help clean up and stop thinking whatever it is that you’re thinking.

Discord shrunk himself, now slightly intimidated by Fluttershy, which is almost unsurprising. Her stare could make even the most vicious of animals cower at her hooves.

Discord: Fine, but I don’t do windows…

Keira laughed at his outfit, as she had seen it before.

Keira: Thanks, Discord. I knew you’d help out.

The magic from the Tree of Harmony made all the vines that were crowding the Everfree Forest disappear into tiny black shards.

The magic even destroyed the vines that were ravaging Ponyville!

Discord seemed to be enjoying this though, as he lay atop on one of the vines in a tropical shirt, a coconut drink in his paw.

Unaware to Discord though, the vines were disappearing.

It wasn’t until he hit the ground that he realized they had gone away.

Discord: Oh poo…

Kai is a son of sorts, not biologically but in more of an emotional and mental way. We met a couple of years back when he was still a young foal.He was neglected at home and ran away to Everfree Forest. I found him after he had been out in the wilderness for a couple of days, he had passed out from hunger. Since then I have taken him under my wing as a mother. He’s a teenager now and has grown up quite well. He has a wonderful talent for dark poetry, the Poe type in my opinion. 

(this is a drawing I did of them back in 2014, so you know they REALLY go back!)

Kai belongs to @rainbowartz . She has given me permission to use her character on my blog. All character credit goes to her!
