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.
Her brother can just cart apples around.
"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!
