Core of the Apple Part 3 by NaterRang Core of the Apple Part 3 by NaterRang
Part 1:…
Part 2:…
Part 4:…

Okay, it's finally here! The next part of the Core of the Apple comic, and the saddest chapter of this story. For those that might be feeling down, the mood will lighten with the next chapter. Also the next chapter will be MUCH shorter, so it shouldn't take as long to get out if life doesn't get in the way. First and foremost I would like to thank :iconobabscribbler: who's brilliant dramatic readings of the other two parts of this story rekindled my motivation to complete this story. And I would also like to thank :iconfauxsquared: for his composition advice for this chapter. Anyway, hope you guys enjoy and look forward to the next chapter! Let me know what you think in the comments!

EDIT: :iconobabscribbler: has once again graciously provided a comic dub for this chapter of the story! (In record time I might add!)

Check it out:…

Well, frs i have to say, you are a really good artist and a comic writer, you are truly showing us Applejacks and the others feels. You also invited Rarity to the story without destroying anything, and not everyone can do that. The colours are correct and bright, thats really good. You also actually tell us one of the reasons Applejack unlikes Rarity. I would like to see some more effort put in to the tears, the lineart and i also see small dots of paint (Panel 4# When Applejack is exploding, a blue dot of paint in Appleblooms mane. It dosnt ruin the pic that much but when you once do it, it may happen again). And the shadows could be much more improved, but since i know almost every Pony artist keeps their comics simple, so i can Honestly say that this is a really good artwork, And i clearly give it my approval.
What do you think?

Wow...just wow. I see that there's alot of passion and heart put into this. I have never felt so emotionally drawn to a comic like I have here. This comic has a perfect mixture of a fan's point of view, and what could actually be cannon some day.

First off, I find it awesome how you made AJ's dad with an orange cutie mark. Really smart. Second, the art work is amazing! Really fantastic work my friend.

This is just perfect, I loved every minute of it when I was reading and cannot wait to see more of your future works. /)

Best chapter yet!

As with parts 1 and 2, I watched the dub, which was marvelous.
I didn't expect the twist, and the the ending was the strongest part of the story to my mind. Congrats NaterRang+Scribbler.

... but I was also happy that the comic of part 4 so that I could process the emotion :)

It's funny because Applejack's parents had just the day before harassed a unicorn about using magic to repair the bridge because they wanted to do it the traditional way.  Because of their prejudice, someone who could have simply picked Rarity up telekinetically without putting her life at risk was stuck at home, and now Applejack's parents are more broken than Windows 95.

Awww, poor baby Apple Bloom looked so upset crying in her crib. If I saw the little filly like this, I would pick her up from the crib, comfort her with hugs and kissing, and say: "Shhh... It's okay, Apple Bloom. I'm right here. Don't you cry, my big filly." Then after drying off her tears, I placed Apple Bloom in her cradle, gave her a kiss on the head, and rocked her off to sleep.

At some point you should listen to the dramatic reading by Obabscribbler on Youtube if you haven't already.

It's enough to get even me misty eyed. XD
