MLP: FIM - Without Magic - Part 4 by PerfectBlue97 MLP: FIM - Without Magic - Part 4 by PerfectBlue97
This is part 4 of my ongoing Pony comic.

Princess Celestia has magically transformed Twilight Sparkle into an Earth Pony, after deciding that she has become too dependent on her magic. There have been some tears, some tantrums, and some hugging, too.

Now, Twilight has set out to find somepony to help her in her quest to find out how Earth Ponies do things without magic.

Part 1: [link]
Part 2: [link]
Part 3: [link]

I've used gameguy001 's Sweet-Apple-Acres as a background for all frames ([link]).

Twilight Sparkle is an altered version of my Twilight Sparkle vector from Page 3 ([link]).

Apple Bloom from Frame 3 is based on Saveman71's [link] The color and the style didn't match my own color\style. Particularly the line thicknesses, so I created my own vector from scratch, using it as template.

Apple Bloom from Frame 7 is a combination of images. I re-used some of the components from my previous Apple Bloom vectors, and overlayed them on an image of Derpy crying from one of my earlier pony pieces ([link]).

The pose is identical to CommyPink's Sad day...-Apple Bloom vector 1 [link]. So I used it as a guide when I re-sized\positioned Apple Bloom's face and mane. I also used it as a template for the eyes.

I don't honestly remember where the image of Derpy came from. I remember modifying it from somewhere else, but I cannot remember where. It could be this video on Youtube ([link]).

The cloak was scratch drawn, but it is based on Trixie's cape. I used Why485's Pony Fashion Study ([link]) as a guide, but altered the decorations and added a hood to turn the cape into a cloak. It was inspired by Twilight Sparkle's dress from The Best Night Ever.

The sudden tears at asking a simple request was humorous, though I get the feeling that wasn't intended result. Honestly, I doubt Apple Bloom would particularly care if She was asked where AJ was. Seriously, its a simply request. And I doubt that she would feel insulted that Twilight would ask her for help re-finding her place in life. Hell, if anything she would probably feel honored, and ask her to join the CMC as an Honorary member.

Um, missing links to the other parts.

Alright, that was an effective use of narration in the beginning, although you could have left that last panel to stand on its own, without words to support it.

By the way, in the dialect the Apple family speaks, the singular second person is still "you," and "y'all" is reserved for the plural second person. Also, other than their use of "ain't," they conjugate their verbs standardly. In other words, AB should be saying "you are," not "y'all is."

Isn't she supposed to be Canadian?

Just no.

Please tell me you're not a native English speaker. I'm given to understand that Southern tends to be the most recognizable American regional accent to those from other continents.

It was a joke. Her VA is from Vancouver.

The only two actual Canadian ponies, as far as I know, are Snips and Snails.

But, not kidding, Applejack uses Ya'll in the singular in the show, so I used it in the comic.

Watch Look Before you Sleep. She uses Ya'll when speaking to Rarity about a dozen times.

That was one of the few episodes that I'd seen when I started scripting the comic, so I used it as the base for her speech.
