Yes, there are no "official" rules, but it doesn't change the fact that, if you choose to make the setting different and have different main characters, then you should just write your own story, rather than writing a derivative work.

They did write their own stories.

Anonymous 100245

My apologies, I meant that they ought to write original work if it's that different.

So there's no middle ground? That sounds pretty dumb. Living life in blacks and whites always is.

Anonymous 100247

"Living life in black and white"? What the hay, man? I was only stating that you should write original fiction if your idea diverges that much from the source.


...Or you could take that as a challenge to make completely divergent ideas converge into a story that remains entertaining despite the source material(s).

Of course, that's just an opinion. Everybody's got one.

BillyColt!3F18SEGwVI 100257

The gore is off-putting, but I don't have anything against darker fics in general (save for stories that are pretty much just pointless exercises in gore).

My main objection to the story is that five chapters in I'm bored out of my skull. And the protagonist rubs me the wrong way.

Anonymous 100260

But why should you write a derivative work if you have your own ideas? It's considered more respectable to write original fiction, so it would work out even better if it was unconnected to any source material.

BillyColt!3F18SEGwVI 100263

You're on a fanfiction forum telling people to not write fanfiction?

Anonymous 100264

No, I'm not saying that you shouldn't write fanfiction. I personally like the 10% of fanfiction, I just believe that you ought to write original fiction if you have an idea that just doesn't make sense for the universe of the work you are setting the story in.


I absolutely agree with this sentiment, but don't think that it applies to Fallout Equestria. I feel that FOE's story is enriched, not burdened by its relation to MLP and its relation to Fallout. It doesn't share the tone of either, but it does rely on a lot of different elements from each to make its story work. It's got game-mechanic-based humour, it's got a lot of references to stuff in both FIM (a few too many awful fandom references, but eh) and the Fallout games, and really it's just incredibly intertwined with both.

Had it disregarded every aspect of both settings, I would agree that it should be original fiction (there are plenty of stories where this is the case), but it hasn't. It is very much ponies and it is very much Fallout, but it's also not entirely either of them and actually something new, but not something entirely new. I'm probably not saying this well.

Or perhaps we just have different ideas about the amount of property X a work of fanfiction should retain to still be called fanfiction. It's a murky area, but I will agree with you that some non-superficial bunch of stuff has to be retained.

I think it's a case of asking if the canon of whatever property enriches or burdens your story and acting accordingly... but of course, that's subjective.

[Adventure] [Crossover] [Human] (4,306 words)

Synopsis: Once upon a time, on the not-so-magical planet Earth. There was a US Marine who signed up to defend his country. He was assigned to a fire team, the fire team assigned to a squad and the squad assigned to a platoon. Together they defended the area surrounding a Forward Operating Base in Afghanistan from insurgents. If only it were that simple.

When lone Marine is transported to Equestria he finds a post-apocalyptic wasteland. With no orders, no resupply and seemingly no hope of return, he sets out to find what brought him here, and why.

Hey there. I recently wrote a '.5' chapter for FoE - Project Horizons. I can't link it here since it's explicit, but it's up on Fimfic for anyone interested. The title is 'Warmth'. Should be easy to find if you do a search with the mature filter switched off.

Tags: [Crossover], [Shipping], mild [Dark].

Synopsis: Stable 99 is saved! After securing her home from an army of vicious raiders, Blackjack takes a well-earned opportunity to rest and recuperate. Despite everything, she finds herself struggling to decide how she feels about her budding relationship with Morning Glory, her young pegasus friend. Glory, meanwhile, is eager to help her come to a decision.

Fallout Equestria: Sola Gratia 117467

Wait, were allowed to post our own garbage here?

Feedback has been oddly positive so far, so feel free to damper my dreams with your criticism.
We wouldn't want another Hitler... wait


Can someone please help me understand Fallout Equestria's Enclave?

A while back I read Fallout Equestria & loved it. Bar some minor annoyances & pacing issues it was a fantastic read.
I've now started reading Project Horizons & this is where I'm getting confused...

The Pegasus Enclave in FoE (from memory) was hiding all knowledge of what existed underneath the clouds from the civilian pegasi. They had them believe that the surface was still tainted and that only monsters roamed the land. Any pegasi that goes below the surface without Enclave consent would be executed upon returning or labelled a Dashite & banished.

Yet in FoE: PH (as of ch14), I'm getting the sense that the pegasi DO know what is below the clouds and while the Volunteer Corps might be a sham to deter pegasi aiding the surface, they aren't exactly hiding that there is something there...

So what am I missing? Is this just a difference between the two stories, or am I not remembering something correctly from my original read of Fallout Equestria?

Seattle_Lite!C6/9YiYc6I 118598

I’m glad you reposted in the thread mate. So check it out—
In FOE, Calamity states the the *majority* of civilian pegasi are wholly unaware of the conditions of the surface below due to a deluge of propaganda and enforcement from the ruling junta. It’s fairly vague, but reinforced a few times.

Now, in FOE:PH, dude creates a sort of outcast pegasus city that has been effectively ostracized from the civilization at large, and that’s the one responsible for the VC and the press to do surface work/exploration/mass-fuckery.

So at the least, we can assume a disconnection and misinformation campaign, seeing as this rogue city is largely considered a threat to the government at large, and as such anything coming from there is heavily restricted and delegitimized. Thats… the best I got.

Anonymous 118606

Or... PH and Fallout Equestria don't occur in the same exact universe and Somber dungoofed.

Also, PH is non-canon.

Rebuttal from the Honorable Vice President VP Daniel Bird 118607

File: 134688492421.jpg (23.73 KB, 600x300, Enclave Gathering.jpg)

Pegasi Enclave are no proper substitute for the real deal, son. While them winged freak horses can walk on clouds and have guns, they just don't do the Enclave name proud. I know this, since I half-run them. Or, at I did, before our HQ got blown up...

But before I sidetrack further, these pegasi just aren't as intimidating or exude the same fear and respect that's commanded by good ol' pure human Enclave. I mean, we had Frank Horrigan. Do your ponies have a Frank Horrigan? I very much doubt it.

Also, from what I'm understanding, these horse Enclave don't even make a proper introduction. What I want you to do is watch this here fancy internet video thingamabob, to see how you establish a serious threat from the get-go.

And that, my fellow Americans, is why horse Enclave will always be inferior. Oh, and more reason why Frank Horrigan is the best.

See that? He made a Deathclaw explode just by PUNCHING it! I rest my case, and I must leave. My planet needs me.


Thanks for the response. I guess that is the best idea as to why, but it still leaves my brain hurting as much as Littlepip's when she asked about the trains... :P


I say, Frank Horrigan is indeed the best pony.

Fallout: Equestria - The Oddity 121141

Boy, has it been a while since I've been here. Place looks kind of dead to me, but let's give this a go.

I've been working on this story for over a year or so. (I just searched. My last post here was from November of last year.) But everything's been a bit on-and-off. If you've ever read this story, believe me, it's no longer the same story. There's no messing with canon, there's no bizarre character moodswings, and there's a more solid plan behind everything.

If you either haven't read the story, or want proof that it's changed, here's the link:

Now, here's the fun part. If you really like this story, or you think it could turn out to be something special, and you would like to be an editor/pre-reader/idea-trampoline, email me. If the email doesn't show up somewhere else on here, it's masquerade313@gmail.com

That is all.

Fillyosopher!sHYACEbRoI 123912

Hey masq! does this mean I can read chapter 6, finally?

That said, wow this place looks dead. We need an FoE revival! POST STUFF!!!!!!!


I'm sorry, I don't really... get it? There's a lot going on here. You're jumping from scenes in a way that detracts from the understanding without adding anything to the atmosphere.
The, uh... leg stuff, while it didn't make sense (... I don't understand which direction Odd Job is going, in relation to the door and the handler), had one operation of note. Never revealing the actual damage to the reader makes the increasingly bad injury more serious to the reader and draws up a lot of suspense.

Fallout Equestria: New Roam 125760

Well, in the interest of promoting my fic here and hoping it DOESN'T get smashed to a bloody pulp, I hope and pray that it is received with at the least neutrality, and at the most with warmth.

Hello there! some may know me and some may not... oh well anyway my fic is well duh. any way......... I am putting my fic through a bit of a rewrite. could anybrony/pegasister lend a hand with helping me think of a beginning

Church 125791

just got into the Fallout Equestria fic a week ago and loved it (even though never played a single fallout so some references will be missed).

just read chap 1 coz been planning to 'read' it as slowly as possible(plus i've tons to read in my own sched: tolkein and cs lewis stuff).

ok, so i read it through a brony in youtube who did extra effort on it. added bgm and sound effects even, unluckily he was the only voice for all characters, i think he only got to do it till chap 2, then he stopped.
i was wondering if any of you know of other 'audios' who did extra effort too, with bgms, effects and importantly other voices and stuff/accents while reading.

Church 125792

also wondering if other from:
pink eyes
and horizons
(as they were the only KKat approved side fics)

what fallout fic would you suggest to anypony?

Anonymous 125804

pink eyes sucks balls
heroes sucks balls
horizons is... on the red line for dropping. Like... there's only so much you can press that delicates SoD line, even in such a lengthy work, before your reader just throws up his hands and "NOPE"s. EG:Blackjack is Twilights great grand daughter thing and has adventures on the back of alicorns with lilpip. dafuq

The only decent and well-written FOE fics I've seen are Stonershy's and Pacce's, which go hand in hand... sort of.

Anonymous 125806

Your taste in FoE fic is terrible and seems to be guided by your penis (the only real hook those works have).

Oh, see how that doesn't work?

Pink Eyes: This one was written by an Italian guy with only understandable English, and boy does it show. Even if you ignore the grammar and the weird syntax (I understand he got a couple of editors, but that didn't help much it seems).

Will be continued, have to do some shit.

Church 125809

holy manure bro, did i struck a nerve or something?

haven't actually read any of those and are just wondering the best fic to read after the original
FOE. never expected such 'responses'.

there's probably points in your arguments(if they're totally not exaggerations) but still, thanks.

Hey guys, I make radio plays, and I enjoyed FoE quite a bit after recently finishing it.

I was wondering if some fans could tell me what they think of this little vignette I dreamt up last night. I happened to be on /mlp/ in the FoE general and I snagged some VA's and wrote the script on a whim. We made it in four hours.


MLP isn't the best place to collect opinions. The story is about Prodigious Peddler, traveling through the wasteland with his Ghoul companion Domino. I was also thinking about perhaps doing a few more of these centered around Peddler, you could help me brainstorm if...you know...you wanted too...


File: 136212927280.jpg (91.09 KB, 450x1250, T2zCC.jpg)

Been a while, Squeak.

The first voice has some weird echo thing. I assume it's like that because it's a monologue. I'd suggest making it like a recorded message instead, since Fo:E uses them so much. Start with Peddler (inb4 "It's Prodigious Peddler!") saying something about the date and location to set the scene.

I.E.: "It's been five days since we left Hoofington. Had to stock up before we crossed the badlands."

Do the same for the rest, along with a little (JUST A LITTLE; you always go overboard with these things) static and hiss to complete the recorder effect.

I really, really don't like the ghoul's voice. It's the sound you would get if you put a metal grinder against a cheese grater, and the cheese grater is alive and is screaming the entire time.

Overall, can't say I was enthralled. Admittedly, I skipped large swathes since Domino's voice makes my neck hair stand on end, but it sounded like it was just six minutes of the ghoul waxing not-so-poetic exposition, along with some play-by-play by Peddler. Their limited banter was stiff and unconvincing; for a pair that's been travelling together for some time, they don't sound particularly close.

FYI, the /fic/tioneers have mostly moved to MLPchan's /fic/ ( http://mlpchan.net/fic/index.html ), although many still lurk here (myself included, obviously). You might have better luck over there for getting an audience.

We are eternal enemies now.


Could you guys look over this? It's the first 500 words of the story i'm writing. I hope everypony likes it :)

The wasteland can break you. Turn you into a monster. Take away what made you a pony. Many have already fallen. Raiders are a perfect example of those that turn to cruelty because they have nothing else. Some have gotten off much better, such as LilPip and her band of do gooders. This is a tale about one of the unfortunate. And how a friend can help you see the bright side.

Chapter 1: Fall

I love this gun. It really is a great gun.

I watched as the raider fell to the ground, a scorched pocket in his head where the electricity hit him. What remained of her mane stood on end and smoked. It was very funny.

From what he could see, there were only two Disciples left. One fuming mad for me killing their ally, the other putting a magazine into his RAD Gun. The gun looked like every other gun in the wasteland. Utter crap. Last two. I turned the power setting on my gun to Bolt. Oh, look. They're charging me. One even started firing at me. The bullets failed to penetrate the armored radiation barding. Their fast firing guns. The bullets left small, slightly glowing indentations in the suit. Damn radiation bullets.

The discharger of the gun flared. A supercompressed cylinder of energy flew halfway across the courtyard and sailed gracefully into the raiders skull.

Mmm, crispy.

The other continued her charge, swinging her RAD Sword and yelling out religious crap about who knows what. She reached me around the same time her head dissolved due to the amazing power of lightning.

With the last raider down, the courtyard grew eerily quiet. Now, Scavenging. Later, zapping cultists. The complex had a small courtyard and a decent sized building in the center. The door had fallen open in the conflict, and the inside looked like a...well...it didn't look like anything. It looked like nothing. Being the smart pony I am, I activated my light spell and stepped inside the dark, unknown, and dangerous enemy building.

Smart indeed.

Inside, a few light flickers from dim panels. On the opposite side of the room, the door to an office. On either sides are the sleeping quarters and armory. And I know all of this due to the convenient labeling above each door. That was kind if them, the cultist freaks. I walked straight towards the armory. Somepony had been kind enough to leave the door open. Inside, a room filled with the Disciples trademarked RAD weapons. Guns, swords, and rocket launchers. Carefully, i magically lift whatever I can and place it in a sack hanging from my horn. Heavy, but manageable.

This was too easy. Get in, Steal Weapons, Get out, Sell to towns at inflated prices. Not even much resistance. I had caught them during their morning prayers, but there should have been more of them.The thought was very troubling. Even more so when I saw the large group of disciples waiting at the gated entrance to the compound.

Oh hay.

They spotted me, the leader, a massive pony magically wielding a broadsword, shouted out "Send him to the Bale!" And with that command, the sword wielding loons charged, some bombarding me with religion and such. The gunners stayed back, waiting to open fire as soon as the group dispersed.

Hello everyone~ I'm just posting a little something to celebrate the 10th and darkest chapter of Fallout Equestria: Treasure Hunting!

A commemorative art piece to illustrate perhaps the most iconic single scene in that chapter.

A quick synopsis of the story:
Sisters Hidden Fortune and Lost Art adventure through the Wasteland after discovering a Stable during an ordinary scavenging run. Used to an avoidant and scarce life, they must learn to survive all over again as the wastes throw all manner of new threats against them.

Gaia Prevails has 41k words at the moment and keeps up with weekly chapters (~5k)

Link: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/94078/fallout-equestria-gaia-prevails

My name is Aideen, I was a slave for the Crimson Company. As I grew up learning Stable-maintenance my talent has been used to hack terminals and the likes. The story starts with them discovering a facility by "Gaia Prevails", a resistance-group especially known for stealing and destroying research and weapons on both sides during the later half of the war.
Of that team I am the only survivor; they were all slaughtered by - and this is where it gets weird - an evil bodiless entity, I believe is Nightmare Moon. After having a good bloodbath she planted a weird type of memory-orb in my saddlebags and let me go.
Being a free pony has its own set of challenges, getting a mission from Nightmare Moon and keeping a slaver-superpower from getting all that fancy tech from the Gaia Prevails facility doesn't help with that either.
I don't think I'm going insane, but then again 90% of those who are deny it.
