applejack is great because she’s a total goofball and she has all these odd southern quirks and mannerisms and sayings and she’s obsessed with apples but everything about her is just so GENUINE. she’ll say stuff like “my dogs are barkin’” or “scoot yer boot” or whatever all the time without batting an eye even though no one else around her would even think to use those phrases. and she’s just so ENTHUSIASTIC about being applejack. also she is a very nice pony who helps her friends. and she has freckles and a hat
basically if you don’t like a.j. we got a problem
All those silly country-sounding phrases she uses make Applejack really hard to write well for me cause I have a hard time coming up with them, but also make well-written Applejack one of the most delightful things ever.
