Applejack's Unease by Omny87 Applejack's Unease by Omny87
This is my first attempt at a more "serious" MLP comic, as well as a chance to experiment with panel layouts and lighting. There's a lot of things in this comic I'd like to change, but I've already spent more than enough time on it as it is.

I came up with this comic after thinking over the implications of having shapeshifting creatures like the Changelings in the show. These creatures have the ability to perfectly mimic the appearance of any pony, right on down to the voice and clothes. Knowledge that such creatures exist could cause rampant panic and paranoia, with everypony starts pointing hooves at anypony who acts just a little different. It'd be like the Equestrian version of the Red Scare. I'd like to see something like that explored in Season 3- assuming it ever comes out.

the way AJ hugged Big Mac in the last panel is just adorable!

I know a  jillion people said this too, but due to my ignorance on the topic of fertilizers and manure, I expected Applejack to walk into a barn full of poop.

Big Mac best be careful in that next to last panel. I know its just the angle, but it still looks like his hats about to catch fire.

Great comic, really. Like the guy a few below me, I thought it was going to be a poop joke at first, then it got creepy, then heartwarming.

I've had at least five people saying they expected a poop joke. Manure is made from animal poop. Fertilizers are nutritious chemical compounds either made synthetically or produced via compost.

I apologize if I offended; growing up in farm country when not a farmer, though, the only thing I ever learned about the stuff was to roll up the windows on the drive home.

No offense; it's just a weird trend I've noticed in the comments.

So I hate to be creepy when I say this, but these are ponies we're talking about. When Big Mac asked for the fertilizer, couldn't AJ just go to the bathroom for a while and came back with it?

You're thinking of manure. Fertilizers are typically either compost or nutritious chemical mixes.
