I know that this has been a divisive subject amongst fans. I myself ran through the gamut of reactions from frustration to acceptance. But in all of this I fear we've lost sight of one of the main issues:
What will become of Applejack's farm truck? I just don't know!
This comic is my own way of venting over the recent announcement for the season finale. I won't have a solid opinion until the episode has actually aired, and I am hesitant.
The only thing to do is enjoy Games Ponies Play, and then see how Magical Mystery Cure goes. And remember that out of all the oddities that can come from a toy-driven show, nothing (not even Twilicorn) is quite so odd as Applejack's farm truck.
Hang in there, everyone! I hope you enjoy the finale and this comic!
Update: And now my madness can spread through the fandom! Thank you, everyone, for your thoughts, your input, and your laughter. Whatever the episode's outcome, this is a highlight for me.
True story: For my birthday in 2011, my friends got me Applejack's truck. It was more of a joke since, as goths, the idea of anything cute or fun causes them physical pain. I had never seen it before, but my mind conjured a dozen questions. These included: Where would ponies get fossil fuel? Does it run on magic? If so, how does she fuel up? How does she steer? Is it stick-shift? Who the heck thought this was a good idea?
That is what it's like to be me.
The truck sat unopened on my shelf for about two months before I decided I would never be an MLP merchandise consumer and I donated it to Goodwill. If people enjoy it, good on 'em. It's just not my thing.
"I just made my last payment!" That is gold right there. Pure gold.
Literally, I can't see Applejack with a truck of that color unless there were other underlying factors in the purchase and painting of said truck...
I am never serious!
