1. Hey everypony. Can anybody tell me who applejack's parents are? :3 Because her family lives together, but instead of her parents being there, it's Granny Smith. Any particular reason?

    1. @crystalcharmer lauren faust said that she assumed they had died at some point earlier on, but now its open to interpretation

    2. @crystalcharmer They died in war. Granny Smith was spared because she was too old to enlist.

      1. @ceruleanspark @purplephish20 Ah. Thank you both. :)

        1. @crystalcharmer I don't know. That was just my interpretation of the absence of seemingly a whole generation of ponies in ponyville.

          1. @ceruleanspark It's a good interpretation, nonetheless.

            1. @crystalcharmer Depressing though. I'd prefer to imagine an equestria without serious conflict.

              1. @ceruleanspark I'm not quite sure about that. I feel conflict adds more depth.

                1. @crystalcharmer I prefer my candy colored ponies happy and worrying about cake, rather than picking their way across the a post nuclear wasteland.

                  1. @ceruleanspark I would quite like to get round to reading the whole of fallout equestria though... i got halfway through chapter 2 and just stopped, i thought it was awsome... i just never got round to the rest. makes sense considering ive got piles of books i still need to read.... including one that i took a train to sheffield, and queued up for over 3 hours to get signed....

                  2. @ceruleanspark A lovely way to imagine it. :)

                    1. @crystalcharmer All that said, Fallout Equestria is my favourite pony-fanfiction. Somewhat contradictory.

                      1. @ceruleanspark I haven't read it.
