Wanted to try something absolutely different. The idea was to show emotions and convey the message without words. Hope you like it. Since this is my first comic any suggestions are welcome!

Thanx for the favs and comments!

Oh my. This is quite the quality work, nicely done, colored to perfection, the only thing is it's so sad, but that was the point, right? I believe, judging at how Apple Jack looks so young and Apple Bloom looks younger than she does in the show, that this is based off of the loss of their parents, correct? I doubt it's Big Macintosh, and it's not a Granny Smith apple to indicate it's Granny Smith who died. Really, the coloring is what takes the cake in this picture, very nicely done, very professionally done, as well. Good job, really.

This comic was absolutely amazing. This is my first critique so bare with me. The vision was clear and simple and had a beautiful message. It was simply a beautiful thing that I really liked and I think others would like it as well. You made a beautiful comic with a lot of thought, which I always like.

Originality, well, a few Applejack/Apple Bloom cry scenes, but this was very well-done. The scene setting was very interesting and it was very original with the darkening scenes and Applejack almost in depression, I can barely describe the originality of this. However, there have been a few delightful Applejack/Applebloom cry scenes as stated before, but this one didn't need words to describe the raw sadness and love in this comic.

Technique, god, it was so beautiful I couldn't describe it, your art style is unique and very lovely and stylish. Clear character format with a delightful twist of their manes, gosh, and I love that eyes you created, they are so unique and amazing. A small pallet of colours made a huge comic so unique, and those oranges and reds and creams and darker colours all were just what Applejack's kitchen would look like.

Impact, well, it was pretty good, and you left the viewers wondering, and that is always a good thing. The impact is very creative and I really think the message is clear for us, and that is important to get the message across and for readers to think about this through out their day. Why was Applejack crying? That question is haunting most people's mind, which is excellent.

Awesome work, please continue to create work for us, and comics.

I can relate to how Applejack feels. Truly beautiful.

I think that this comic captured the true sense of depression. Even Psychologists says that is impossible to give a full interpretation to its generic sense, but you have captured the essence of the moment. I suffer of a light stage of depression, but I can say to you that all the stages until she begins to cry are totally realistic.

You probably study Psychology or you are/have been depressed in your life. Don't get me wrong here, I was just guessing.
Anyways, this really reminds me how to cry when I need it.

Thank you

Thank you, I'm you realized the purpose of this short comic. And I both studied psychology (a little) and I suffer from depression as well. It was a really good experience to draw this one.

This is one of the best MLP fan comics I've ever seen. Ever.    ...Ever. Especially regarding this particular subject. I have no critique for you because you are on a level far surpassing my own. All I can say is keep it up!!
