The Facts of Life by Dunnstar The Facts of Life by Dunnstar
Holly moly. Thought I should tackle one children's innocent queries that we always try and dodge and well 10 days later.. Produced this with various programs, painter, photoshop, mangastudio. Took awhile, I don't even know the hours.

I gave it a twice over for spelling but as always I probably missed something, leave a message and I'll fix it.

Anyways I'm satisfied with the result, there was times I thought I wouldn't squeak this out but, heh, anything can happen!

Another (cough) SMBC inspired comic.

Edit: WOW! within 2 hours I get featured on Equestrian daily. I don't know how that happens but thanks!!

that means:
1.Apple bloom was created by Applejack+Big Mac 
2.Apple bloom adopted from somewhere
3Apple bloom's mother aren't the same with Applejack and big mac,I mean like this,Applejack has a step mother,and this is the story if that's so
Applejack:Apple bloom,actually you have other mother,our father is cheat with other girl,and then the other girl got pregnant,and our mother,me and your brother's mommy are angry and then went to the other apple family,while the other girl married with our father,for covered you,and then the other girl are left you and your father alone,and then your father had a suicide mission,and that's how you made
Apple Bloom: so where's my mom now
Applejack:well i don't know

So, the parents had two children over maybe five years, and only after they got knocked up with the third they decided to finally get married?

Well of course she made something up, Applejack is the least honest character in the show. SERIOUSLY. WATCH HER EPISODES.

(nice art, didn't find it that funny, but well done nonetheless)

Ma Apple got knocked up with Big Mac from somepony outside marriage as a teen, a few years later she met Pa Apple, had sex again and Applejack was born a few months before  her mom was 18, so Big Mac and AJ are half-siblings, then AJ got pregnant from Big Mac while drunk, and Applebloom was the result, so Ma and Pa Apple had to marry each other quickly...

or

Applebloom is the oldest sibling

or

Applebloom is adopted

EXPLAIN DAMMIT

this is melting my mind

Did I read this wrong or am i missing a joke here

the smbc comic only had to do with one child


at first I thought you were implying that applebloom was asking if Big Mac and AJ were her parents

now im not sure

The joke is that all 3 of them were born out of wedlock, but AJ lied so fiercly she made spring long enough for all 3 of them to be born in wedlock... because spring used to be super long.
