Aww, Lyra, I'm so terribly sorry for my wrong use of the word. I forgot how much you adore hands. Tell ya what. If I can muster up the ability to draw an Apple Jack with hands, will that make things better?
Haha, I'm glad you're happier than before, Lyra^w^ Though, don't die on us yet. Friendship is Magic might want more appearances of you. And who knows? Maybe you and Bon Bon can become main characters...with hands!
in the defense of the writers, there's a perfectly good reason Applejack would be less competent a dressmaker than Rarity: no horn, no telekinesis (ever tried threading a needle with hooves? It's not easy!)
