Pulling on her Strings by Conicer Pulling on her Strings by Conicer
Alternate titles:
"Tugging on Your Heart Strings"
"All Tied Up"
"Some Strings Attached"
"Tangled"


So!  This is a (extraordinarily belated) birthday gift for my friend, :iconelyonblade: elyonblade. He requested Applejack and Crysialis doing something, so why not show Applejack doing what she does best by wraggling some changelings? :)

Nopony was hurt in the making of this picture.

With all these holes in Chrysalis' body, this is so easy for Applejack.

Once again, I'd like to thank you for this wonderful piece of art! I couldn't have asked for anything better ;) It also looks like it is rather popular, I'm glad I was able to give you an idea, although you turned it into a reality quite nicely! I think that the crown pop and hat pop really brings out the entertainment in the picture, while the colors keep it in a cool and still serious tone. Nicely done! Applejack sure does have a feisty battle stance, it would be interesting to see how this scene came about.

Also as for your alternate titles, i feel like pulling on your heart strings reminds me of Lyra  for some reason... nevertheless the puns are indeed present, thanks again! Clap

"On it! Chrysalis, you're FINISHED!"

(the very air rumbles as arcane power builds, and is released)

"No...NOO! NOT LIKE THIS!"

(Chrysalis grabs a nearby Changeling bystander with her magic and moves him into the path of Twilight's spell)

"DIE FOR YOUR QUEEN, PEON! HA HA HA HA HA!!"

"I had already seen this coming, Chrysalis."

[The spell fire screams towards the two Changelings, only to suddenly WEAVE around the bystander Changeling the Queen was using as a shield, and hit Chrysalis dead on]

"No! It can't be! NONONO It isn't fair! IT ISN'T - "

[Chrysalis disappears in a blast of magical light]

[And as Chrysalis is literally vaporized, her now-nonexistent magical hold on her would-be meat shield winks out, and the Changeling drops to the ground. He quakes in fear and shocked relief, tears running down his chitinous muzzle.]

"I'm alive...I'm alive...oh Sweet Fires of Tartarus, I'm alive--
thank you, Element of Magic. That spell would have ripped right through me...but, why did you spare me? Why not let the spell keep going?"

"But...The Wedding, those three fillies, Manehatten! After all we've done to you, to Equestria, how can you think *you* have no right to judge us?! Why not look for revenge, blood for blood?
You killed the Queen while looking her in the eyes...how can you not hate the rest of us?"

[The young Changeling is shaking by now, both in terror of the mare before him and her Queen-killing power, and...confusion. He'd always been taught that mercy would never be granted to Changelings, least of all a mere worker drone like him...and yet his life was saved by none other than the Queen's greatest foe.]

"Because your hive was starving, and the queen used it as an excuse to rein you all in line with her plan to conquer us so she could drain all the love to power herself, she never told you we're willing to help you if your kind only asked. Granted, I did felt... anger, hatred, for Changelings for a while after the invasion." *Sigh* "But in the end... I realize there's no point to it, and hatred would take me places where I could sink just as low as your queen, if not worse. Plus, we didn't want the Windigoes coming back now, do we?"

"No, we do not. But still...you ponies are strange creatures. Raining the fury of all hell on your enemies in one moment, helping them sift through the rubble the next. I'll never understand it, but I owe you my life, Twilight Sparkle. Thank you."

[he dips his head, then shakily trots away, leaving Twilight with her friends. It isn't long before Applejack trots up, smiling]

"Ya did it, Twilight. That so-called Queen is gone fer good...and Ah think ya just started a peace treaty. But fer now, let's all go home."

Heh, thank!  It seems like quite a while ago since you've asked me to do something with Twilight and Chrysalis.  Glad that the story turned out so successful too! :)

Hmm, maybe I should do a pairing with the other main six as well. :P

You definitely should. 

I had an idea once involving Rarity begrudgingly taking her measurements, but I'll never do it... Well, maybe someday.

Kind of unrealistic, though, that Chrysalis is getting her flank kicked by an Earth pony like Applejack, but it's still pretty cool.
