Indeed. It's been a while, hasn't it? I couldn't help but notice all the unfortunate abuse you've been getting lately. I mean, I'm all for mixing things up and causing a little chaos, but not like this. Chaos that only serves the purpose of bringing down someone and not giving a positive push elsewhere, especially when these acts pile up, is just wrong even in my eyes.
A moment of weakness. My judgement was clouded, I'll admit. A thousand years in a rock will do that to you. Besides... it doesn't seem like your friends needed my help in turning on you this time around.
But was it not their actions that put you in this state to begin with? I never did care for that Big Macintosh fellow. I felt the dog-like state I put him in was very appropriate. Surely you know by now that he's had relations with several of your friends behind your back?
And don't you still wonder what it was that all your friends were trying to hide from you? They seem more concerned with hiding the failures of their kin than being honest with you...
As far as I can gather, young Applebloom misplaced the small furry thing you gave her to watch over. More concerning is the fact that all the ponies who found out jumped to aid her in finding it and pretending it never happened, instead of telling you.
I'm sure they just wanted to help Apple Bloom. I know my friends. They'd never do anything to hurt me on purpose... Unless... Oh no! What if I did something terribly wrong to one of them? I should go apologize just in case!
Such trust you have in your friends... You're truly a determined person. Still, you can't deny that they elected to help Applebloom first, even though I'm sure you would have understood and helped them too. Even past that, we still have the issue of that lout Macintosh. At the very least, he deserves to be shunned.
