Applebloom Comic by Didj Applebloom Comic by Didj
When I got back from my deployment, I had a lot of pent up drawing to do. And since one of the things that kept me entertained was downloading the episodes of My Little Pony (don't judge me) in every port, I had more than a few fan comic ideas itching to get out. Here's one of them.

For those of you who know nothing about the show and require an explanation: In the show"My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" the characters almost all have images on their flank. These images always coincide with the character's name (Applejack has apples, Fluttershy has butterflies, etc). These are called "Cutie Marks". However, we are told in the show that a pony's "Cutie Mark" appears when they discover their special talent. Kind of like a right of passage into adulthood or a puberty thing. And despite their conveniently placed name, the cutie mark represents that special talent. One of the ongoing plots to the show is that the young filly Apple Bloom is impatient about gaining her Cutie Mark and constantly tries a variety of things to discover what her special talent is. In one episode, it is heavily suggested that carpentry may be her special talent, she just doesn't realize it. But if that's the case, then her cutie mark would have something to do with carpentry and not something like an apple bloom to match her name.

This made me crack up. Me and my friends always talk about the names and how they go with their cutie marks.

I had an idea that her cutie-mark wouldn't be on but it would be black apples all over her body except her face and white face of all the ponies would be in the apples and the main six would be going down her back and her two friends would be in a big apple on her forehead and the biggest apple would be on her flank and that apple would have her in it; this is okay to :T I guess (lolz XD )

Great little comic. You mentioned being in port. Are you Navy, then? What ship are you assigned to? GOD BLESS YOU for your service. { hugs, snaps to attention and salutes}

I'm former U.S. ARMY MILITARY POLICE CORP myself. [peacetime]

I am Navy, Canadian Navy that is. I am currently posed to the HMCS Ottawa with homeport in Victoria. I always find it awkward when people thank me for my service. I'm not exactly out there dodging bullets all day like some people think.

The CMC all have a valid reason for getting a cutie mark, they just don't realize it yet maybe that's the trigger
