阿杰的父母到底遭遇了什么?

原标题:In My Little Pony, what happened to Applejack’s parents?

Alivia在Quora的回答:

这是一个自小马开播以来就遗留下来的问题,而最广为认可的说法是:AJ的父母已经去世了。多年来官方也曾多多少少含蓄的暗示了他们已经死亡,而剧集《并蒂枝连》似乎终于证实了这个说法,诸多支持此观点的证据如下:

剧集《家族团聚》中,史密斯婆婆这样说道:“这次整个苹果家族都要来。”与此同时,窗外划过两道流星,两道平行、相伴的流星。流星通常是永垂不朽的标志,这两道流星或许象征着AJ前来家族团聚的父母,又或是他们灵魂的化身。

剧集《一错再错》中,年幼的AJ和大麦争执着谁能够从史密斯婆婆手里继承农场,却不是从他们父母的手里,这或许暗中印证了AJ父母已逝的观点。而此时的烂钱(玉珠冠冠的母亲)看起来更加年轻,玉珠冠冠应该还没有出生。考虑到玉珠冠冠与小苹花年龄相仿,所以此时小苹花应该也没有出生。

剧集《可爱远征》中,小苹花终于得到了自己的可爱标记,AJ这样说道:“如果爸爸妈妈在这,他们得多骄傲啊。”

剧集《可爱纪元》中,当幼小的AJ动身前往马哈顿时,送别她的只有大麦和史密斯婆婆,没有她的父母。

剧集《并蒂枝连》中也存在大量AJ父母已逝的证据,比如所有小马提及AJ父母时,使用的都是过去式;蛋糕太太和焦木就如同不愿揭伤疤一样,在AJ提起之前都拒绝谈起她的父母,且在谈过此事之后,他们都流露出了怀念的神情,也是在暗示AJ父母的遭遇。

而唯一解释不通的地方就是小苹花的身世。在上述的这些插叙片段中都没有出现小苹花和她的父母,也就产生了一个悖论:小苹花是在她父母死后出生的。我曾以为她是被领养的或她其实是AJ的女儿,但她却与辉麦如此相似,只是生了对史密斯婆婆般的眼睛。也许金梨果酱死于小苹花的分娩,但这无法解释辉麦的死。

有人认为他们只是去了一个永不回头的冒险,但是一对儿如此相爱的夫妻不可能会抛弃自己的孩子。唯一合理的解释是他们在小苹花出生不久后(金梨果酱可能是在小苹花出生的过程中)就去世了,可能是耕作事故、木精狼或是其他怪物的袭击、疾病、产后并发症等等。

大体上来说,AJ的父母已经去世了,但是没有人敢保证确有其事。在刚开始在制作剧集时,编剧就表示“最终没有确定”AJ父母的身世,而劳伦和她的团队喜欢给苹果家族留下一个开放的变量,且他们认为并不需要一集故事讲清楚AJ父母的最终命运,所以他们留下了一个供粉丝自由演绎的空间。

回答原文:

It’s been in speculation since the beginning of the show, but the generally accepted answer is that they’re dead. It’s been implied for many years, but it seems now the show has finally confirmed it. There is much evidence to support this:
Apple family reunion: Granny smith says “all the Apples are coming.” and applejack looks out a window to see two shooting stars, at the same time and parallel and each other. The stars symbolize (the spirits of?) their parents, coming to the reunion. Stars are often used to symbolize immortality.
Where The Apple Lies: Young AJ and big mac arguing about who’s going to inherit the farm from Granny, not from their parents. This implies that at this point the parents were already dead. Also, Spoiled Rich/Milk is seen here when she is much younger and diamond tiara hasn’t been born yet. Since Diamond and Applebloom are about the same age, Applebloom probably wasn’t born yet either.
Crusaders of the Lost Mark: When Applebloom finally gets her cutie mark, AJ says: “If mom and dad were here, they’d be so proud of you.”
Cutie Mark chronicles: When little AJ leaves the farm to go to Manehattan the only ones to see her off are big mac and granny, not their parents.
The perfect pear also has tons of evidence that they actually are dead:
Everypony speaks about them in past tense.
Mrs. Cake and Burnt Oak seemed hesitant to talk about them until the apple siblings brought it up, not wanting to risk opening old wounds. At the end they seem nostalgic to talk about their old friends, implying that something happened to them.
The only frustrating thing about this is it leaves a big plot hole with Applebloom. She wasn’t there in any of the flashbacks, but neither were their parents, leaving the paradox that Applebloom was born after her parents died. For a while I thought she was adopted, or somehow she was actually AJ’s daughter. But Applebloom looks exactly like her father, only she has granny’s eyes. Or maybe Pear Butter died while birthing Applebloom, but that still doesn’t explain what happened to Bright Mac.
Some people think that the apple parents abandoned their children, went off on an adventure and never came back, but no couple that was that in love with each other would abandon their own children just like that. The only reasonable explanation was that they both died shortly after Applebloom was born, pear butter possibly during. It could be anything: farming accident, timberwolf/monster attack, disease, postpartum complications, etc.
Basically, they’re dead, but nobody’s sure how. When the show was first created, the writers said they “never quite figured out” what happened to the parents. Lauren Faust and her team liked the close family dynamic the four apples had, and the parents weren’t really needed for an episode, so they just left it open to interpretation.

  3. 具说两人认识到相爱,也是遭到双方家长不同意(好像苹果家梨子家有仇),但最后还是走在了一起,但是如果他俩真死了,就有点像《罗密欧与朱丽叶》……

  7. 只有去世才说的通,而且……现实也不缺乏悲哀的事情,就算是乌托邦,也不该一切都完美无缺,区别只是要乐观地面对悲伤,这才能得到幸福。
