Why Applejack Is UnderappreciatedBased on my brief experience with the brony community, Applejack seems to be the least popular of Mane Six. She's the only one who is called a background pony, albeit jokingly. But why do so many bronies find her uninteresting? They give reasons, but most of them don't add up to anything substantial.Why Applejack Is Underappreciated by Maran-Zelde
"She has no flaws"
I don't quite understand how people can't see Applejack's flaws, but the most likely reason is that her flaws aren't as obvious or exaggerated as those of her five friends. They do exist, though. You just have to pay attention.
Stubbornness: In "Applebuck Season," AJ was so stubborn that she worked herself to exhaustion before she finally admitted that she couldn't harvest her entire orchard on her own. She did learn to ask her friends for help, but her mind still tends to get stuck on one track, and as a result she sometimes loses sight of what's really important.
Pride: While AJ's pride isn't as in-your-face as Rainbow Dash's, she still lets pride get in the way
|Personally I've seen a lot of hate on Applejack from time to time. Sometimes more, sometimes less. Some people claim to not have seen any hate, but that doesn't mean it's not there, sadly but true. This could depend on where you go on the internet and who you talk to.|
But this group isn't necessarily just about protecting Applejack from 'hate', it's also for people who support her character and find her under appreciated in general. This is technically an 'Applejack Needs More Love' group, if you support that I'd love it if you joined. Applejack doesn't have to be your favourite pony to be a part of this group, not being a favourite doesn't necessarily mean hate, as long as you support and like the character you're more than welcome.
This group will not allow art that's considered offensive like being disrespectful, violent, porn, fetish or incest/family members closely related shipped together. Pairings are more than alright, doesn't matter if it's straight or not, but as long as you wont go too far.
Your work MUST include Applejack to be accepted, anything she doesn't appear or hated in will be declined. This is a APPLEJACK group that focus on loving/defending her after all!
The art must be done by YOU, no art-theft please.
NO screenshots, animations or anything else from the actual franchise is allowed here.
We do NOT allow pony vectors in real life, but vectors alone is alright.
