OrangeJack by SoulSpade OrangeJack by SoulSpade
I was always curious as to what would have happened if Applejack never saw Rainbow Dash's Sonic Rainboom and stayed with the Orange Family in Manehattan.

I picture her getting her cutie mark in oranges and becoming more of a gardener than a farmer.

Just an innocent what-if drawing

More forgiving than how most people picture this alternate timeline.

I don't think there's a world out there where Applejack isn't a naturally decent pony. Moving to the city wouldn't change that, not on its own, anyway.

I just don't like the idea that Orangejack has to become a bad pony, or be completely miserable, or couldn't find happiness.

And imagine her shock when she finds out her big brother saved the world? (With him becoming the Element of Honesty instead.).

My thoughts exactly. Hang on, aren't you that genius who wrote the Pony POV series?

I feel like the style is reminiscent of a painting and yet it looks like a photo of one,hard to say since I'm not artsy if you will but its certainly refreshing just looking at it. Kudos to you for the style and the idea behind it ^^

Ah, the picture of Orangejack that started a whole genre of fanfiction, and a section of great fan art. It's still as good as I remembered it.

This is one of the first pictures of Orangejack on the internet.

Nowadays, there are loads of pictures of Orangejack, in many of which she has that exact same hat and cutie mark. More often than not, they have her hair braided.

It would appear that you started a genre. Congratulations!

Surely it couldn't have been me. After all, I'm not that influential an artist in the slightest. Perhaps it's just a mistake or a coincidence ^^;

No, really, I sincerely think that it was this picture that helped Orangejack to become popular. I've seen this picture on other sites.

I guess your picture struck a nerve or something.

Congratulations!

Now this is an interesting idea. I wonder if she would have any regrets leaving the farm, feeling a sort of strain in living the high life of a Manehattanite. I'd imagine that when she gets stressed or really angry, she slips back into her Ponyvillian accent, which would really fluster her.

Another great work! Nice touch with the wind blowing :D It's quite an interesting idea I've always thought that part of Applejack's life should be explored in the show. Is that your signature in the corner?

Yes, that's my signature. It's kind of new so it's only on my more recent drawings

Probably not. It would be weird harvesting orange trees with your name being Applejack. But who knows
