Ah yes, this was probably the first FiM fanart that I actually put some real effort into! If it was not already apparent to people perusing my gallery or who are not already familiar with my work, Applejack and Rarity happen to be my two favorite ponies and as a result, I'm prone to making a great deal of fanart of them. This particular piece was partially inspired by a scene in chapter 17 of a fanfiction I had read much of when I first joined the fandom, Growing Pains, where a particularly playful Rarity is enjoying teasing Applejack during a brief respite from some much more serious goings-on (and I can only imagine that pony must be incredibly fun to tease... who could blame Rarity?). Anyway, I do remember having a lot of fun with this idea, and I'm still somewhat fond of it even after all this time... adorable ponies.
awesome u r awesome
lol! love it!
applejack is not amused
AJ : careful rarity.. it got dandruff...
Rarity : AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Best Rarijack picture ever. I love this pairing!
Be still my heart
(im surprised she likes aj's hat. usually she only likes big fashion ones.)
I actually look good in her hat!
"Hey look! I'm Applejack! Howdy howdy howdy!"
This looks really great! Thanks for sharing!
Now I want t see an episode where AJ's hat goes missing and - coincidentally - Rarity produces a set of western-themed outfits (plentiful denim!). The presence of a Stetson in one design leads AJ to accuse Rare of stealing the hat.
Not sure how it resolves yet.
Not sure how it resolves yet.
this is soooooooooo adorable it's nice to finally see Rarity's silly side
Aww, Rarity's Smile is Adorable and Applejacks Look is Perfect, Amazing Work
Oh, come on Rarity would NEVER put something so REPULSIVE and DIRTY on her beautiful mane!
Oh, I don't know about that. She's worn it once before on the show already of course, in "Sisterhooves Social". ^_~
This is an incredibly late reply I'm afraid, but thank you very much!
How is that I didn't notice this one? Her smile it's beautiful, and the expression on AJ's face is priceless, she's like mad but... *meh, make her happy AJ, just make her happy*
Loved it as the most of your work <3
Loved it as the most of your work <3
its just not rarijack until rarity wears applejack's hat
Um, hmmm... I wouldn't say "stolen" persay as he was at least considerate enough to credit me, but at the same time he didn't ask for permission and that's obviously my artwork with nothing changed save for text being added. Ugh, I'll have to think this one through, but thank you very much for notifying me at least, I really appreciate it.
I see that you mentioned growing pains, I didn't know if I should read it or not, It was in the rarijack folder on fimfiction, but I didn't see any hints towards rarijack,(then again all I did was look at the description and the picture) Couple that with the fact that the story is so freaking long, I haven't read it yet, So I am just wondering if its a good story and what you think about it
Oh, hm, this is a good question. I'll be entirely honest, I am no longer caught up with the story and it's been a while now since I read it last (I'm afraid I no longer have the time I used to devote to reading pony fanfictions and the like; most of that extra time is now taken up responding to comments and such here on deviantART!) but it does indeed start to get Rarijack-y partway through and some of the scenes were definitely entertaining, including the one which inspired me to draw this picture. As for the story in general, the writing itself is not always the best but it is a pretty interesting plot, and I know it's gotten to be quite popular. So, I suppose if you ever have a bit of extra time, you might consider reading it if you enjoy action-adventure stories with a side of romance!
Yeah this picture mostly reminds me of the story "marital bliss" I think its called. which is like the saddest rarijack story I have ever read, maybe even the saddest story I have ever read period (then again I don't read a lot of sad stories). it is also a bit confusing because the time frames change a lot, but that's about it. but the person used this picture as the cover art so congrats on that. and thanks for the evaluation! keep up the good work!
Oh, really, I didn't know that! I'm afraid I haven't read that story yet either, or perhaps not-so-afraid considering I don't generally enjoy reading sad stories most of the time. But still, I appreciate your letting me know and thank you again!
I think.. you like Rarijack, eh? :3
The one and only pony-pairing to ever win me over, yes... in a way, it's embarrassing to admit but ah well.
Hmmm something just occurred to me...If you like RariJack and consider yourself to be a lot like Rarity...if you met somebody like applejack...what would be your reaction...
Ah... well, that is a very good question, actually! And I feel I should preface it by saying that I am not exactly like Rarity of course... she and I have many things in common, but even still we've grown up differently and have had different life experiences and so on, and not to mention the fact that she is a cartoon pony. However, to answer I'm sure that if I ever met anyone much like Applejack I would be intrigued, and if I had the opportunity to really get to know said person, I'm sure I'd be willing to readily welcome their friendship if nothing else!
Oh wow, now here is another picture that always brings a smile to my face. I don't think it is very often that we see Rarity enjoying herself so much. She looks as if she is having such a wonderful time. That face is just simply adorable. In fact both of their faces are. Poor Apple Jack seems to be used to this now. You just never cease to amaze me with your drawings.
Oh grrrr, did deviantart put this as a comment for the entire gallery. It was supposed to be for the picture that is titled "My Hat".
No no, it's okay, from my point of view at least it did post to the proper page! And thank you so very much for the wonderful comments... I did intend for Rarity to look as though she was really enjoying herself here (I imagine she must have a pretty good sense of humor under her usual prim exterior) and as I said I can only imagine Applejack would be fun to tease at times. And yes, happily for Rarity she seems to be tolerating this patiently enough! I'm so glad you like them both, and thank you again for the kind words.
And once again, you're welcome. XD. I agree, I do believe Rarity has a good sense of humor. Especially after seeing the episode where Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash put sneezing powder in with a bunch of flowers. Rarity took that prank fairly well.
