Awesome, flawless, cute, touching, beautiful, excellent story,
i love how you drew this one, in my opinion filly applejack looks way cuter than rarity, btu hey its just my opinion ...

AJ eyes through the whole thing are so pretty !! her look in the third pannel just breaks my heart .. but aj knows how to be a great friend, and she doesn't care if she gets a little wet, ... you managed to plasm applejack's personality so good .

Your drawings are flawless as i said before , aj is so pretty on this one, ..

10/10 .

I had to take a few minutes to calm down from all the cuteness so I could give an accurate critique. My two favorites right here.

I was originally going to nitpick and ask why Applejack had freckles in the middle of her face, BUT as I recall, this was the case when we saw her cutie mark story so that negative notched up to a super positive. FANTASTIC eye for detail on that part, super bonus points forever.

My only other two nitpicks, is Applejack's hat looks like two different styles of Cowboy hat from the first and second frames to the last three. The first two frames depict it as a "Open Shaped" cowboy hate and the last three are closer to her more "Telescope/Diamond Shape".

Finally, the last frame, I'm a sucker for cute endings, and I feel like you only went 95% of the way here. I loved the little details in the second frame where Applejack is holding her hat while noticing Rarity's concern. The contemplation she shows in the next two frames and how shamelessly she holds it over Rarity's head. I think Rarity smiling, at the last frame would've really gave it that extra feel.
Keep her shocked frame, then add another where she smiles, and Applejack gives her classic warm smile while the hat is in her teeth.

So those are my two nitpicks and as you can see, those are things you really have to LOOK for. Ok, time for good things!

Background is good, you did a great job of depicting filly Applejack and Filly Rarity. I like how Rarity's tail seems to be starting a curl, as if it grows on her as she gets older, that's a fabulous touch. Expressions are great, nothing really looked off or felt forced. And again, AMAZING eye for detail with fill Applejack's middle face freckles. We see the side ones so often that even I forgot she had them in the middle of her face during her youth.

Aside from the nitpicks, like I said I loved this strip. Especially, because you told a story without dialogue, (even though in the description you mention having nothing interesting to tell) that's always awesome. I just really wanted that stronger ending. I always like to end on a good note! But hey, I've been watching you for a reason, I like what you do! I hope you found my critique worthy and useful!

Do I need to say it? Ok, I will...but you already know it's coming! Cliche fan comment in 3...2...1...

I love your work, keep it up!

To begin I would like to say that this story could not be true because Applejack and Rarity did not know before having their Cutie Marks.
But the graphics are fine. Rarity's face is not that a lot like her.

It's just ment to be cute, not accurate to the original story :)

You are not who did this, are you?
TP-Night Nov 22, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No, But I'm assuming that, since it's not accurate to official timeline, and it IS cute.

Ok... Ok... dam
This is why AJ is best pony.

AW! Maybe they switched elements! Also, considering the last few comics where Rarity has been a bit mean to AJ with Big Mac, this is especially sweet.
