Character (Original Universe)
Name: Applejack
Age: ~mid 20s, 25
Gender: Female
Canon: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Canon Point: End of 5th Season
History: Faithful and strong!
Personality: Honest, reliable, and hard-working. That's Applejack in a nutshell and she doesn't really mind it all.

She's believes in honesty and fairness, almost to a fault as she can be pretty blunt or when she needs to keep a secret (she doesn't have much of a poker face). Because of this though, she is very straightforward and trustworthy, even able to convince Twilight when she was hanging from a cliff that all she had to do was let go and she'd be safe. On the other hoof, she expects that same sort of honesty and fairness from others, and can get pretty ill-tempered when others cheat, like how upset she got at Rainbow Dash during the Iron Pony competition.

She's very hard-working, caring for her family's farm and orchard with only some help from her brother as well as running the business of selling the apples. She does this all so as to provide for her family who she deeply cares about. She's very protective of her younger sister Apple Bloom, and likes to keep an eye on her, knowing how much she can get into trouble. While this may at times leave Apple Bloom feeling overprotected, it does show how caring Applejack is, to the point that even when AJ was shrunk down to the size of a mouse, she still chased after Apple Bloom to "rescue" her.

She is glad people consider her reliable, and is always ready to lend a hoof if she can to her friends, families, and others. But again, she might take this too far and bite off more than she can chew, as shown in one episode where she tries to harvest all the apples in her orchard herself while still helping her friends with small tasks at the same time. This in a way shows the other side of her personality, her pride and stubbornness. She was working herself to death, exhausted, and falling asleep standing up, and yet she still wouldn't accept help until the very end. This isn't the only time her pride and stubbornness have caused trouble though, as when she was trying to negotiate between the Buffalo and Settler ponies of Appleloosa, she escalated the tension because she felt they were "right."

All in all, Applejack is a strong, honest friend who's toughest critic might be herself. She's confident in her abilities and proud of the way she does things. And while at times these beliefs might cause her trouble, she is always first to realize her mistakes and apologize or make amends for it. As such, this gives her a more mature, older sister personality to other ponies, which she is happy to be.

IN CHARACTER INFORMATION
Name: Applejack
Canon: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
OU/AU/OC: AU (transplant from Mayfield)
Canon Point: Before season two

History: Canon Background before Mayfield. But shortly after the Grand Galloping Gala, Applejack wakes up to find herself in a totally different world.

This would be Mayfield, modeled off a surburban North American town, most humans brought there find themselves stuck in a house without any special powers they had back from where they originally from. Applejack woke up in a dog house. And she was missing her hat. Needless to say, she wasn't happy. But she learned to adapt. She found out that some of her other friends where also in similar situations, and in worse situations as unicorns like Rarity and Twilight were without their magic. So after getting over the initial shock of seeing these 'hue-min' things everywhere, and then learning that Mayfield is some strange free-range prison that punishes you pretty harshly if you cause a big ruckus (or fracas), she decided to try and stick to what she was good at: Helping her friends and family.

And not just her friends from Equestria, Applejack quickly did her best to get to know these strange hue-mins everywhere. The ones that lived in the nearby house she woke up by and the ones elsewhere in town, sometimes with the tried and true methods of various baked apple treats in tow. While a vast number of 'drones' in Mayfield treated her like she was a dog, she tried to take it in stride and be of some help to those around her. She got a job at a bakery, she would cook breakfast for her new 'family' at the house she was staying at, and once she even organized a Sisterhooves Social like event to try and bring a little bit of home and happiness to Mayfield's residents.

It was tough, trying to survive the various 'events' Mayfield threw at everyone, but Applejack kept at it. She helped when she could and tried not to give up on the possibility of someday returning to Equestria. And things got even tougher when Apple Bloom suddenly appeared in Mayfield. Now she not only had to worry about her friends, but her sister was now trapped in the nightmare that was Mayfield. It was almost like the town was trying her; her sister suddenly appearing, her memories being messed with, and even the new 'family' she made all disappearing or being turned into drones. Yet Applejack didn't give up. Maybe it was her stubbornness, maybe she'd just never believe she'd never get to see home again, or maybe she wanted to be a source of strength for her friends and family. Either way, when it was finally revealed that Mayfield was only a virtual simulation and everyone trapped in the town were just digital copies, Applejack didn't let this new bit of info depress her. She had her friends and family to watch over and help after all, so what if she wasn't the real Applejack? She was still just as reliable, honest, and devoted to her friends as the real Applejack, and while she may not see Equestria again, she could be still helpful to those same friends and family in the new virtual town that the survivors of Mayfield found. What can you say, she was set in her ways.

Personality: Honest, reliable, and hard-working. That's Applejack in a nutshell and she doesn't really mind it all.

She's believes in honesty and fairness, almost to a fault as she can be pretty blunt or when she needs to keep a secret (she doesn't have much of a poker face). Because of this though, she is very straightforward and trustworthy, even able to convince Twilight when she was hanging from a cliff that all she had to do was let go and she'd be safe. On the other hoof, she expects that same sort of honesty and fairness from others, and can get pretty ill-tempered when others cheat, like how upset she got at Rainbow Dash during the Iron Pony competition.

She's very hard-working, caring for her family's farm and orchard with only some help from her brother as well as running the business of selling the apples. She does this all so as to provide for her family who she deeply cares about. She's very protective of her younger sister Apple Bloom, and likes to keep an eye on her, knowing how much she can get into trouble. While this may at times leave Apple Bloom feeling overprotected, it does show how caring Applejack is, to the point that even when AJ was shrunk down to the size of a mouse, she still chased after Apple Bloom to "rescue" her.

She is glad people consider her reliable, and is always ready to lend a hoof if she can to her friends, families, and others. But again, she might take this too far and bite off more than she can chew, as shown in one episode where she tries to harvest all the apples in her orchard herself while still helping her friends with small tasks at the same time. This in a way shows the other side of her personality, her pride and stubbornness. She was working herself to death, exhausted, and falling asleep standing up, and yet she still wouldn't accept help until the very end. This isn't the only time her pride and stubbornness have caused trouble though, as when she was trying to negotiate between the Buffalo and Settler ponies of Appleloosa, she escalated the tension because she felt they were "right."

Applejack's trials in Mayfield taught her just how much friends and family need to stick together during times of trouble. She also learned that sometimes stubbornness provides a type of inner strength that helps keep you going even when all hope seems lost. Mayfield may have tested her limits at times, but she endured and survived, because sometimes that was the only option worth striving for.

All in all, Applejack is a strong, honest friend who's toughest critic might be herself. She's confident in her abilities and proud of the way she does things. And while at times these beliefs might cause her trouble, she is always first to realize her mistakes and apologize or make amends for it. As such, this gives her a more mature, older sister personality to other ponies, which she is happy to be.

Strengths: Applejack is a farm pony through and through, and complements her natural Earth pony abilities. Managing and harvesting farm crops and apple trees aren't her only skills though. A basic business sense allows her to sell the surplus or provide food for events as an added income for her family. And of course there's her athleticism, roping, and herding abilities that mark her a tough competitor in any rodeo.

Weaknesses: As mentioned before, Applejack can be quite stubborn and sometimes it takes a lot for her to change her mind when she's set in her ways. Lots of times these ways can be direct and physical, which might not be hard for her to handle, but might not always be the best way to do things. Also, as the Element of Honesty, she is rather terrible at lying. While she might be able to deflect or stall an answer, if she's put on the spot or asked point blank, she has trouble creating even a convincing white lie.

Possessions: Her stetson hat, obviously.
Pony/Animal Type: Earth
Cutie Mark: Three apples
Pony Picture: Who says Applejack isn't best pony? Because that just isn't nice.

SAMPLES
First Person:
Ah'm not too sure what to say or how Ah even got here to be honest. And if anything, Ah try to be honest. But Ah can pass on something Ah learned from being in that Mayfield place to all these new ponies showing up and saying they're hue-mins or whatever.

See, once long ago, Ah was too stubborn for mah own good. Still am at times, actually. And Ah use to think that was probably something Ah need to work on, that it was something pretty bad. And sure, it's not always good to be stubborn, but it's not always a bad thing either. Sticking to your beliefs is being stubborn for example. Standing your ground is another way of being stubborn too. And in a crazy place like that Mayfield, being stubborn was probably the best thing for me. That place seemed like it was designed to wear down your hope. Make you think that things aren't going to ever get better. Well, it didn't stop me from hoping, and now here Ah am somehow.

The point Ah'm trying to make Ah guess is that all you new people shouldn't give up hope. Things might be strange now, but sooner or later it'll get sorted out, and there's ponies out here who are willing to listen and help get you back where you need to be. So you need anything, just let me know, and Ah'll see what Ah can do.

Third Person:
[Waking up before the sun rises is part of Applejack's usually routine, something she kept at even when she was in Mayfield. Since arriving at the new town, it was even easier to keep up old habits, what with being able to make a small area a pretty exact copy of Sweet Apple Acres. This is why when she wakes up today, she doesn't immediately notice anything different. It's still the same surroundings she had set up already, after all.

But the minute she stepped outside, she knew something was up. First of all, the air just smelled different. And the ground felt different as well. Not the created facsimile she's been use to working on, but just like the ground back ho- Wait, it couldn't be, could it?

With that sudden thought, Applejack takes off down the path that winds its way through the farm. Towards the town. Towards Ponyville. And sure enough, after a bit of galloping, she can see the town in the distance. Bringing herself to a full stop, she just stares at the sight before her, the sun rising and illuminating the familiar town. Finally it sinks in and she just sits down in the middle of the road with a strained chuckle.]

"Well Ah'll be..."

[That's all she can really say. She has no idea what's going on, and probably should start finding things out, but right now, she's going to enjoy being back in Ponyville. In Equestria. Her home.]
downtoearthpony: (Hey there)
Part A (Night before Dec. 17th) | Action | In Applejack's mind
Shhh! Applejack's dreaming! )
Part B (Morning of the 17th) | Phone | 337 Brady Lane

Listen everypo-er body. Ah had a pretty strange dream last night, and Ah have a feeling Ah wasn't the only one.

Whatever it was, whatever you saw, don't believe a lick of it. Nothing is worth giving up your life over, especially when it was probably showing tricks and lies to ya. If this town wants to get rid of us, then it can just send us home, none of this 'things would be better if you didn't exist' stuff is necessary unless someone's just trying to mess with us.

So Ah guess what Ah'm trying to say is hang in there, alright?

Part C (forwarded dated to Friday, Dec. 23rd) | Action | 337 Brady Lane
For the housemates... )
Part D (forwarded dated to Friday, Dec. 23rd) | Action | Around town

[Applejack is out and about, running some errands. At least, it sort of looks like Applejack. But she's not wearing her hat. In fact, she's wearing a somewhat stylish winter fur stole and her mane in a completely different way then normal. As well as makeup, for those who take a closer look. As she walks by, you can hear her speak up...]

Oh, pardon me there, sir. My apologies, I didn't see you there.
downtoearthpony: (sad)
Part A | Action | In and around 337 Brady Street

[It's early afternoon in Mayfield, and Applejack has been walking around town during the morning, only now just returning to her current residence, and noticing the little red flag on the mailbox sticking up. Always willing to be a helpful mare, she opens it up and carefully pulls the letters out with her teeth before closing it up and putting the flag back down. And, mostly because she's part of the 'family' living there, but also because she's a little curious, she sets down the letters on the sidewalk and sits back on her haunches to get a good look at them.]

Huh, looks like we're suppose to pay bills here. As if this place is just another normal town...

[Of course this does bother Applejack a bit. This means her not!Family at this house have to support her on top of themselves unless she provides some kind of income. And considering how most of the drones merely consider her a dog, finding a way to help pay for things is going to be pretty tricky. Applejack was still lost in thought about this when she noticed a few letters addressed directly to Theo, her house mate. All of which are marked "Homeowner's Association Committee."]

What in tarnation are these for?

[Gathering the letters up in a pile with her hooves, and then picking them up with her teeth again, Applejack decides to head inside and ask Theo about his mail when she stops short.

There's a package on the porch. Simply wrapped in brown packing paper and tied up, it's rather unassuming. She walks on up to take a look at who it's for and is slightly surprised to see it addressed to her. Well, probably for her. It actually says 'Applejack Crawford' for the recipient, but remembering what Rarity said about the package that gave her horn back, it's pretty safe to assume it's meant for her. Setting the letters aside on the porch, she unties the package, removes the paper, and finds....

Her hat. It definitely looks like her old stetson cowboy hat. Sitting down again, she takes the hat up in her forehoofs to take a better look. It looks old and worn, but anypony can age a hat, so it might not actually be hers. At least that's what she thought until she got a closer look. The familiar creases and scratches, dents and tears, were all there. Like a road map of memories she shared with it. Aging is one thing, but it's hard to believe somepony would go to all this trouble to make a replica of every little mark on her hat. Which of course means that it IS her hat, and that conclusion just brings back a flood of homesickness that Applejack was trying so hard to keep at bay. She gives herself a bit, hoping no one notices the tears, before cleaning herself up and putting the hat in it's proper place on her head. The comfortable feeling of it brings a smile to her face and she can't help but comment aloud about it.]

Gotta say Ah'm sure am glad to have this back. Felt rather naked without it.

[And with that, she gathers up the letters and wrapping to take inside to the house.]

Part B | Phone | Sometime later in the day, after Part A

[Applejack has put the phone on the counter to make an unfiltered call to the town in general. Don't ask how she dialed. Her muzzle still smarts. But for those who haven't met her yet, a female voice with an accent that you would think hails from the southwest Missouri Ozarks is speaking.]

Hey y'all, this is Applejack over at 337 Brady Street. So in the mail today there were some bills, and Ah realized it probably would be a good idea Ah did some paid work around here to carry mah own weight. Especially if Ah'm going to be here for awhile.

...So, um, anybody need a helping hand? Ah'm mostly used to doing farm work, but it doesn't look like there's much call for it around here currently. Ah'm pretty strong though, so if you need a workhorse, Ah could probably help out that way. Oh, Ah guess Ah can cook too. Ah usually just make treats and snacks for sale at mah stand, but ah've made a meal or two for my family, so Ah know mah way around a kitchen.

Well, that's all Ah had to say. If'n you have a job for me, or know someone who might be able to use mah help, Ah'd appreciate it if you let me know, thanks!
downtoearthpony: (No hat smile)
[With all the supposed fear and panic that the town has tried to recently instill on the residents, such matters actually don't affect a new arrival. Especially one who doesn't watch TV or recieve mail yet. Which is why you'll find someone trotting down the street.

Yes, trotting.

Applejack has decided that if she's stuck here, she might as well be neighborly and introduce herself. So she borrowed her house's kitchen and supplies to make a couple of homemade apple pies. Using years of practice, she keeps them balanced on her back as she moves from house to house, knocking on each door and calling out:]

"Hello? Anypony in there? It's your new neighbor Applejack being friendly and bringing some pie for ya!"

[And no, unless you're a drone who treats her like a dog, or keep her from seeing you in there, she is not leaving until you do answer. Though once answered, she will offer you a nice slice of some delicious smelling apple pie! She'll introduce herself as well, offer to help out if you need it because you're neighbors after all, and she'll also pepper you with questions about the town as she tries to find out more information about Mayfield. She's not being subtle about the questions, but not forceful either, she is genuinely trying to get information in a way she knows how and being sincere in her offers of help and pie.]

((OOC: Applejack is literally going door to door to offer slices of pie and get some answers, as such she's pretty much breathing in massive truth gas. But this is Applejack, who's pretty honest to begin with so it really won't affect her unless she hits Stage 5. So folks who want to respond can just sit back and chat with AJ or try and figure out how to get an orange talking pony off their front porch.))
downtoearthpony: (Hatless anger)
[Dawn has passed on Brady Lane, but only by an hour or so when sunlight has reached the newly appeared doghouse in 337's backyard. The doghouse contains an orange colored pony with a yellow mane, quietly snoring, as if unaware what awaits her when she wakes up. Which is actually the minute the sunlight hits her face. She's use to getting up when the rooster crows, after all. Of course when she finishes yawning and rubbing her eyes with her hooves, she's a little shock to see the unfamiliar surroundings.]

What in tarnation? I don't remember falling asleep in the barn last night... Wait, this isn't mah barn. Where in Equestria is this?

[Applejack steps out of the doghouse and looks around to see a strange and unfamiliar landscape around her. She's looking over everything, which isn't actually much what with the backyard fence blocking her view.]

Well, it's definitely not Ponyville... Or any place Ah've seen before. What's with the door there? Doesn't look like it's made for a pony.

[She's referring to the back door of the house of course, and she makes her way to it when she suddenly is jerked to a stop by the rope that has her tied to the dog house.]

Erk! Now who did this? Is this some prank of Dash's and Pinkie Pie's? Hmph, Ah'll be sure to give them a piece of mah mind if it is.

[She walks over to the doghouse and uses her teeth to untie herself from it. She can't really get to the part looped around her neck at the moment, but she'll worry about that later. Now is the time to get some answers. Which is why she walks up to the door with a determined look and knocks on it loudly with her hoof.]

HELLO?! ANYPONY IN THERE?! Y'ALL NEED TO COME OUT HERE AND EXPLAIN YOURSELVES!

[She pauses and seems to glance up, as if noticing something for the first time before knocking again.]

AND YOU NEED TO GIVE ME BACK MAH HAT IF YOU HAVE IT, TOO!!
