There, There Sweetie by Thundercracker417 There, There Sweetie by Thundercracker417
After seeing "One Bad Apple" and thought about it, I could not help but feel a bit sad about how Rarity and Applejack BOTH don't notice or do anything to help the CMC out...sure, it might detract from the message, I get that, I do, but seeing them do NOTHING ticked me off. So I decided to make this, an alternate take on the episode. But Applejack isn't off the hook yet...well, I think I'll be making a comic for her too, albeit going down a different route!

Oh, and because I know some people will mind how long this is, I must point out that I am accustomed to writing long and winded fanfictions, so this is something I am still growing accustomed to. On the other hand, one must also realize that this is a complete comic, not broken into parts like you might find elsewhere, so of course it is going to be longer than average. I personally think the length allowed me to show things that could otherwise be lost, such as the Rarity/Sweetie Belle hug. So please, don't hate on the length like some people did on my "This Day Aria...What?" [link] , and instead think about other, more constructive criticism! I don't mind that at all!

Soooo, anyways, I must thank all the amazing vector artists for letting me make this, for without their work this could not have come into being. All I did was the arranging of images and the writing of the script, they did all the nice art, so go check out the artists that I will be listing below! Who I must thank the most is :iconmanangatanga: for actually making three of the vectors used specifically for this and doing so in a most timely fashion! Without their help I would have been stuck and so they deserve a great deal of credit too!

Thanks also to :iconhasbroplz: and :iconfyre-flye: for this great show!

My friend is doing something for me, and I've agreed to dub or have animated two comics of his choice and he chose this one.  I hope you'll like seeing this comic come to life in my Hooded Quickies.  I make sure to do very professional jobs on dubs.

Of course.  I always do.  I just need to deal with some other comics first, and then I will do this as my friend requested.  Also, to inflate my friends' ego a little, but as I feel he could use the support.  My Friend was on an episode of True Life on MTV.  The episode was called The Benjamins.  He is Kenny Benjamin from that episode and he's a really good guy.

Not yet.  I finished another comic Kenny also requested as it's smaller.  This one will be next when I get to it.  Keep in mind, I dub a lot of comics.

Thundercracker417 Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I agree there. It gave her a semi-sympathetic reason for acting out, but it made her just as bad as Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon in the end for not rising above their pettiness. I don't like Babs Seed and wish she wasn't going to be a recurring character, as she's been shaped up to be.

I personally think if babs started as a bully and grew to protect the cmc from diamond tiara and silver spoon that would be compelling charater development and in apple family reunion apple bloom seems to have completely forgotten what happened

It's a great comic, as much as I loved this episode, the ending itself left me with a bad feeling.

 

Rarity I can understand not taking action or not noticing something was wrong. Because Sweetie was staying with her parents.

 

Applejack do'n got much of an excuse in my option. :o

no saying she is excused, but Applejack was probably bus with the parade, the farm, and stuff. She may have been to busy to spend much personal time with Applebloom and the others until the parade started

Thundercracker417 Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Possibly, but that is not proved by the show and is only a possibility. Just like it's a possibility that the reason why is that she was actually practicing making dresses. That too isn't supported by the show, but is possible. Endless possibilities, none of which we know for sure. I just find that not being able to witness bullying and abuse within your own house to be inexcusable.

On another note, this comic concerns Sweetie Belle and Rarity. I am working on the Applejack version though.

Yeah, I understand your feelings. There seems to be a strange lack of awareness in the adults. They don't notice bullying if it is happening right in front of them *cough*callofthecutie*cough*:cough: . Rarity I can understand not noticing, because she and Sweetie Belle don't even live together, but Applejack doesn't really have any excuse. :no:

Love this, by the way. Rarity and Sweetie's conversation was sweet, and well done at that. :clap:

Thank you very much! I am actually working on an Applejack version at the moment along with :iconmanangatanga:, a project that got shelved for half a year due to school commitments, but is now starting back up!

I feel as if the adults all need to pay a little more attention to the young ones...this goes doubly for Applejack and Twilight who each have a young one whom they are like a mother to. As you said, Rarity and Sweetie don't even live together, as well as Scootaloo and Rainbow Dash (they don't even become really close until the next episode! Then again, the episodes probably all have some timelines that overlap in some regards, and they aren't always in a logical order...), but Applejack had no excuse for missing Bab's bullying RIGHT IN THE SAME HOUSE.

Thus why she gets next treatment! Thanks again :hug:

Can't wait to see it! I bet it will be awesome. :evillaugh:

That is very true. I honestly thought Applejack and/or Rarity were going to get involved while watching, but instead the CMC tried to trick Babs into ultimately driving off a dangerous cliff in a giant golden apple. There is certainly a very strange disconnect between the adults and youngsters. I do hope later episodes help dispel that.

:excited: You're welcome! :glomp:

Babs is lucky on many fronts. Imagine if the episode had happened after Rainbow Dash took Scootaloo under her wing? Or if Applejack were to actually react to Babs? Poor Babs would never have made it to "Apple Family Reunion"...she would still be in a full body cast.
