Broken by Earthsong9405 Broken by Earthsong9405

天天彩选4中奖情况 www.3tbpb.cn And on one beautiful night, a family is broken.

—————————–

My take of the fate that befell Bright Mac (otherwise known as “Chief” in my headcanon), the loving father of the Apple Siblings. I wanted to try something different here: instead of actually depicting the violence just draw the shadows of Apple Dad and the timberwolves tearing at each other with the two eldest watching on in horror. A pretty interesting challenge; I’ve never done anything of the sort before! o: But I wanna get better at my work so I figured I should at least give it a try; didn’t turn out too bad. :3

Apple Bloom isn’t here because she isn’t born yet: Chief passed months before Pear Butter could give birth, and the resulting heartbreak of his death is one of the reasons that led her into her own death: she wasn’t strong enough to recover from giving birth and died from an illness.

Hope ya like it! C:

For whatever reason, whenever I see a character dying/eaten by a canine breed, I always think about Ben's death from the Barnyard movie. But I love this <3

How I see this:
Aj: "PAPA!" The filly screamed as she watched her father getting killed by the timber wolves she wanted to help but her brother was holding her back to protect her

If this were canon
It would explain why applejack is very protective with Applebloom when it's about the everfree forest creatures.

Great art ! :D
Also...
It's a very interesting idea.
Especially since we don't really know how Apple-Parents have Died.
This idea makes a lot of sense, since the Apple Acre is near the Everfree Forest.
+ the fact that Applejack did say they had some problems with the "Timberwolves" in the past.

you know thinking about this headcanon, it would explain why they don't remember much about their parents and why applebloom doesn't remember them at all

It's characters from the show MLP. The description is extremely simple and self-explanatory. It really doesn't get simpler than that. Do you really need everything to be spelled out for you?

...If you watched the show, you'd know. It's very heavily implied that the parents are dead, they can't outright say it because it's a kids show. But there's a lot of obvious hints dropped throughout the episode, throughout the whole show, even. Applejack's parents are talked about in the episode "The Perfect Pear". Do you seriously need every little detail pointed out to you? It really doesn't get simpler than that, it's not rocket science.

Because in the show the two kids in the picture(which are adults in the show) grew up with both parents dead. This image is a interpretation as to why they died, since the show never says

Such an emotionally charged scene!  Love the expressions on them!

As a side note, do we know for sure their parents were killed by Timber Wolves? Last I remember hearing about it, they thought the cause of their deaths was too gruesome to speak of.

The show itself does not disclose how their parents die, just that they have passed away. This is only my interpretation of it: the father fights timberwolves to protect his children, but succumbs to his wounds, while the mother dies from an illness soon after giving birth to Apple Bloom.

Ok, cool. I'd heard the timber wolves theory before, didn't know if that'd been confirmed as cannon or not.

Protip, you should remove the highlights on BM and AJ where the shadows of the others fall on them. IRL you only get highlights in shadows if you have multiple light sources, and given the natural outside setting I kind doubt that's the case. Makes the picture a bit hard to read atm.

this reminds me of this other work I saw... X-Men Evolution... Someone drew Kurt comforting Toad while Logan kicked arse, all you could see was Logan's shadow along with the bad guys' shadows... It's an awesome aesthetic that works very well to convey strong emotions as well as tell an intense story
