Finished reading BLP right now; I like the idea and the trio of protagonists, they are a strange group and make me curious about what's going to happen next.
For the story i can't still say anything, since chapter one is just a sort of premise, but I'm really curious to see what happens in chapter 2.

Heroes Comment mimezinga 59392


I like your style and the way you narrate the events; Silver is an interesting and very unlucky character, but what I like the most in her are her reactions to the various events.

The story so far is quite easy to follow and has its appeal, also because it goes on its trail, staying faithfull to the setting

Keep up the good work


NoOne!jXe3H56tvs 59602


All you have to do is take a cup of Fallout, add it to the plot!
Now just take a little something dark, and funny
bit of pony--just a pinch!

*Ahem* Sorry. Don't know what came over me. New Pegas is a classic FO:E fic with a twist and that is out gallant hero is more inclined to moral ambiguity then you usual Blackjack or littlepip.

Now while it may seem to some a bit too derivatve of New vegas at the start the story really comes out on its own later on, and is worth it. I would suggest it for any FOE fan needing their fix.

Well, it's a bit short, but it could be a nice premise; for my personal tast, it's a little hasted and the dialogue between the raider and the protagonist has something weird but I can't say what...

I'd say to try writing something more into it and see where it goes

Yes. Somewhere on the planet, kkat's blood has just been replaced by pure frosting.


Not a reference bro.

I'm not even American or English, yet I've heard it been used a ton of time on children and such.

Quite sure it's not a reference...

Anonymous 60195

Don't forget, Littlepip is just Littlepip's nickname. Her real name? Pipsqueak.

HOWEVER, they are not the same pony because A: I'm pretty sure cannon Pip is a guy. and B: FoE happens 200 years after this. What I'm thinking is that Pipsqueak is LP's great great grandfather, who got underground just before the balefire bombs hit.

Also, I'm fairly sure Littlepip mentioned that her family is originally from Trottingham.

Anonymous 60196


Oh wait, never mind. She's not named Pipsqueak. Forget what I said.


Almost certainly not a reference. He's obviously supposed to be English and calling a kid pip squeak or something along those lines in ye olde Englishe would hardly be a stretch.
If he'd been a girl unicorn I'd say the odds were in favour of a reference, but they share a name only.

Are we still ignoring the fact that there are constantly ghouls know who Rainy Days is? Seeing she as she survived the brunt of the disaster, and had been moving south as well.

It's more the "Hammer of 'Oh god no'" hanging precariously over the story. The story just feels like it's building up to a point where everything comes crashing down.

Hi fellow bronies!
Yeah, I kinda joined this cadre of side story writers by starting my own little story, called "The Longest Road". It has a little inspiration from the Lonesome Road DLC for FONV, but the storyline has nothing to do with it. Hope you will enjoy it.
Also I can't wait to have time for a little story scavenging around these parts, see how others fare with their stuff.

Broken Steel Comment mimezinga 61709


Okay, done reading broken steel; I think the author has a nice and weird concept here, but he needs help with his english, a lot of help; in the latter chapters it gets a little better.

at the beginnng of the fic the author states that he's no writer, so maybe all he needs is some more practice, but some help from a mother tongue pre-reader or editor could help him a lot.

Anonymous 61712


I do agree, and the narrative seems more monotonous at times where it's seems more-so descriptive, losing that grasp upon the reader.

mimezinga 61719


still i think the story has potential and could go very far, it touches some themes i didn't see in other stories

Fallout: Zebrica
Why has no one done this yet (to the best of my knowledge)? Everyone's so infatuated with ponies that they seem to have completely forgot the zebras got bombed too. Rather depressing.

zebras! mimezinga 61743

truth is, no one cares about the chinese... even in fallout there is almost no BG for china, so the fact that the zebras get ignored is just kharmic... actually, if you exclude fallout 2 (or was it 1) wiith the ruins of los angeles and the chinese settlement, they ar mostly put there as targets (like in mama dolce)

zebra get a better treatment, they give also some co-protagonist instead of simple targets

so yay

Anonymous 61793


Oh of course! I do believe this story has alot of potential and is adequete, all the author needs to work on is to make things more descriptive and breathe more life into the actions instead of "I walked downstairs and got a bowl of cereal".

Ion-Sturm 61845

Yes, but the mini-fandom is already flooded with pony/equestria stories. Who cares what FO canon doesn't do with China? Whoever makes a Zebrica story would have a huge advantage since they wouldn't be limited by any major canon or fanon elements, not to mention the bonus of being the firs with a real, major twist in the setting.
BTW, if somebody DOES decide to do one now, I expect to be mentioned as the person who actually thought about the obvious when everyonle elese had ignored it >_>

The Longest Road feedback Tosxychor 61868

Hello there guys, first post in Ponychan for me *blushes*
I was asked to provide some feedback for The Longest Road, so here it goes.

I definitely enjoyed reading it, the idea of using a already developed courier looks viable, so far it looks good.

A few things to note:
- I've seen some verb tense errors, like using the present tense in a past tense phrase, or forgetting a 'had' in a past perfect tense (sorry if I can't find it back), but still, it's very minor stuff.
- The prologue... it's kinda OK, it's just that the protagonist kinda wanders a lot with his thoughts, bringing up even philosophical matters (like the 'good nature in the Wasteland') that make the prologue less brief and to the point. and would feel much better placed in the middle of an actual chapter, where thoughts can get more space to be properly developed
- The character doesn't seem very consistent, he's supposed to be a weathered courier, yet jumps at the sound of someone coughing? Wastes a bunch of .50 cal at some raiders camp, just to scare them off? Shooting some cages in the process? That doesn't read very professional to me.
- The gun thing is an entire thing by itself, in fact. I was tilting my head to the side at his... liberal use of an anti-materiel (besides, just how long has he possessed this rifle? It seems a little late for him to say "Oh, I know this overheat thingie, 's been bothering me a bit, I'll look into it tomorrow", yeah right, like you haven't said that for the past 2 years or so :p ). And then came the Overkill perk, which fits with the character, of course, but from the looks of the intro, I thought the story was gonna be... a bit more serious than that, with the protagonist having a bit more sense than shooting .50 cals for fun (and shooting locks with it, even). Or are you saying that all ponies who can weld a gun eventually become trigger-happy madponies? XD I know this happens in games, but really, some things are best left out of stories IMHO. Unless it's comedy/parody, that is (and from the protagonist's drama, this one doesn't look like one of those).

This of course not to detract from the good points: the scenes are well set, the descriptions are good, and I particularly liked the exchange with the two rescued ponies a lot. It still needed a teeny tiny bit of polish with the pacing, but all in all, what I'm seeing is a good writer in the makings; you just need more practice (thus more writing) to get more the gist of it, get the text to flow more freely and smoothly.

I definitely see the premises for a good story, so good luck with the next chapters! :)

Can anyone tell me why this story is (apparently) so good? I haven't played fallout (super long game) and I don't plan on reading the story (super long story) but what is the allure of reading an already set story and putting ponies in it?

Anonymous 62047

Considering chapter lengths, the fact she is still commenting within the last few days and that writing is difficult, not showing anything for 2 weeks is hardly impressive (the fact it was done before hand on the other hand...) so don't shiver your timbers my friend.

The world of FoE is impressive not because of grabbing ponies and putting them into Fallout, but the manner which the characters have evolved due to the nature of said universe. The work is very well written, the plot is engaging and in general is has little to no flaws, but again, what makes it shine is it's excellent use of the characterization and expansion of what we see in the show to play around with the emotion of most readers, making you care for the characters rather than being a mere silent observer.

Thus, the greatness of FoE is how natural the world fills and how Kkat managed to convey the notion that the pony world could actually end up where you see it here.

Wednesday!uhGols11hY 62069

This story is too good. I love the fact that he can fit the mane six in. If it weren't for that, I feel I would have stopped reading ages ago. The story made me laugh and made me sad so it was (and is) a great read if you have the time.

okay, it's quite short to say something about the story, but it seems quite an ok out of the stable intro; my real concern is about your puntuation.

Ok. I just looked through chapter 1 again and noticed a few errors and hopefully I have fixxed the period problem. Tere was alot of unnessasary pauses. I know there are still some problems in it but mostly small problems. I still have no clue what to call it XD I was thinking maybe "Blood Ties" due to Ruby's father leaving but I'm not making that the main goal nor the only goal. Its going to be kinda like Littlepip leaving to find Velvet thing.

The next chapter is going to have more in it so its going to be longer then chapter 1. the only reason chapter 1 was so short is because I couldn't think of too much for the Stable plus I really wanted them to just get into the wasteland.

I also didn't even think of the reason The Lone Wanderer left the vault because of his dad leaving when I came up with Ruby's dad leaving XD I just relized that. And I've been working on a title for the story for when I get one of those scanner things and figure out how to use it. Can it get colors too? I don't want to mess up the pic with coloring it if it can't. Im not the best artist but i'm ok so hopefully the pic will be fine. Wow feels like I'm writing a story right here with how long I made this :P

I have no clue what happend to my old post so I'll just put a shorter version. I corrected a bunch of stuff in chapter 1 and chapter 2 should be longer for what I have planned for it

opps. for some reason my previous comment didn't show up for awhile nvm then

Subject Sigma"s story Errant 63917

I'm bit of an editor and a friendly hobo pointed me towards yer chapter.

I guess you cleared up the period problem that Mime mentioned, but I'm frankly confused what he's refering to. A big improvement would be to increase the line spacing. Hit return one more time after each paragraph to leave an empty line. It makes the document look clearer and easier to read.

Also, I'd advice spelling out any number small that a hundred in exposition and every number in dialogue. It looks cleaner and flows easier.

Also ya need to be sure that you put commas in when you have compound sentences and subordinate clauses.

The only story issue is how easy it was Ruby to open the stable door. Kkat said that you needed a code.

Errant 63959

Also, when yer thinkin' about a name don't go for the obvious. Sometimes making a name that will only make sense later in the story is better.

Found a gem that slipped under our radars, already 15 chapters in.

Title is better than it sounds IMHO. Nice spin of things while keeping to the spirit to both the cartoon and game. Nodding to both FoE and Project Horizons. Also, the pony equivalent of Honest Hearts in the latest chapters.

Anonymous 65089

A funny thought occurred to me. Looking at how many of the side-stories are taking place at around the same time at Littlepip's exploits. Wouldn't it be funny if another side-fic came up to acknowledge the events of the side-fics as cannon? Big names like Project Horizons, Pink-eyes, and other fics that are starting to gain following.

That so many heroes (or at the least, anti heroes) are popping up the same time as Littlepip, I'd be surprised Equestria is not restored to it's former glory.

Anyways, that's just wishful thinking on my part.

Fallout Equestria: The Manehattan Project (um... review, please?) Caffeine Jolt!QD/YR.wHDo 65164

Um... hello, everypony... is this the appropriate thread to ask for review/critique of a sidestory?

Fallout Equestria and all of it's spinoffs are hands-down my favorite fanfiction series for MLP, and I thought a little while ago that I should try my hoof at writing my own little sidestory.

It doubled as an Honors English class assignment (also, may have turned my teacher into a brony, haha...) and it's supposed to be the first in a series (In future installments I plan on fleshing out a better antagonist or group of antagonists, among other improvements).
I don't think it's that good, personally, but that's probably because I don't have a lot of faith in myself...
It's an adventure sort of story.. not very grimdark, though there are some moments that might be considered that. Takes place in the Manehattan Wastes... I'm not sure if there's any other well-known sidestories that take place there, but if so, well then that's pure coincidence.

Any advice you can give is welcome, please critique constructively. <3

Fun fact my story is now 62 thousand words long. Fourth longest FO:E sidefic. Also comes with free cake.

Anonymous 66689

Has anyone written, or have considered writing, a story about a pony who starts as a hero of the wastes, but ultimately falls. In FO:E, Watcher and Homage make a big deal about all the would-be heroes that came before LittlePip, but are broken by the wasteland. Sounds like a source of a lot of stories.

Winston 66710

Im workung on something those lines, yes. Though less of a story about a hero who failed and more about a main character that just wasnt good enough to be a hero. Remember that colledge kid who went to Libya to fight for the summer but got sent home by the rebels? Kinda like that. Basically its about some random wastelander picking up a rusted out rifle ans heading out into the wastes. Sure, he eventually gets his own team together but theyre all just as ill-equipped for the wasteland as he was. The idea is to write about an inept hero gathering a group that simply does not mesh well, and tries to make a difference. Problem is, they somehow wind up just barely missing out on every major event in the timeline, and whenever they actually do get mixed up in something, chances are they fail miserably. Even worse, what few successes they do manage get completely overshadowed by another, more competent upstart team of do-gooders. Though thats arguably a good thing, seeing as if they were suddenly sucessful enough to gain a reputation (and thus wind up on someones bad side) they probably wouldnt last two days.

Noting down for the actual story yet, the concept itself is still a work in progress, and i dont really have a full character roster yet. Expect to see it in the future. Far future.

Shit is definitely coming to a head in the story. I'm going to be... unmitigatedly sad to see the final chapter, I have to admit. If Lil'Pip doesn't get to see Homage before she dies, there will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth in the northwest (though I doubt Kkat will go that route)

From the way she was talking, it seemed like LittlePip was planning for their reunion at the garden was to be her chance to say goodbye to Homage.

Whatever Littlepip's plan is, it doesn't involve any real hope of survival. Even being dubbed the Lightbringer, she still sees herself as expendable, the one to clear the path, not actually guide the world.

For almost one hundred years, Stable 55 had been a scientific haven in the wasteland, built on the backs of Equestria's brightest.
Under the orders of Stable's AI, a dangerous new project began - The Grand Galloping Gardens Creation Kit.
It was never successful.
For fifty years, the Stable remained dormant, until one young mare was pieced back together and sent on a mission to bring help to the survivors of Stable 55.

So how about that new official chapter? HSQ was through the roof, and the episode references came thick and fast (some of them were a little groan-inducing, but Kkat does that stuff decently).

The weird time tense stuff irritated me a little, and I can't help but wonder if the prologue is supposed to fit into this chapter. Actually using words like "Today" might make that make sense.

It just had to end on a cliffhanger. There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth until the next update.

Because I'm going to be revealing huge spoilers about the new chapter, and I'm pretty sure that no one else has had any similar ideas to mine, this will all be spoilered. spoilers
I've been reading lots of Stephen Hawking, and watching some of his shows. Also some Stephen King, but that's irrelevant. I watched a show a few days ago that described what happens on the event horizon of a black hole. To an observer (assuming they are not affected by the black hole's gravity) someone falling into the black hole would appear to be affected by all the things extreme temperature and gravity will do. Breaking down into ever-smaller particles and such. But the the person falling into the black hole, this does not seem to be the case. The person falling into the black hole feels completely fine, and they go down into whatever fate awaits them at the center of the black hole, where space breaks down and the laws of the universe go "fuck you!" From Quantum Physics, we learn that it is possible that both of these outcomes are possible at the same time. (Ignore that quantum physics doesn't usually apply to large-scale physics. It does in this case.) From reading the new chapter, I realized that this must be the case with dragon transportation! Littlepip is teleported into the SPP while simultaneously being disintegrated. I've concluded that dragon teleportation magic is based off of black holes! I don't really think this is particularly significant to the story, but I feel accomplished in figuring out the workings of dragon teleportation in a fictional realm.

I kinda like the way Littlepip sacrificed herself. I think it was an appropriate end to her story, and honestly I didn't really care about her (fuckbuddying) relationship with 3-Pony.

I'd . . .

Like to talk about the sex scenes.
About their relevance . . .
When I first read through the converse between Littlepip and Homage, I thought their relationship was rather . . . well, not a real relationship. When I read "A Mare Worth Fighting For" . . . it clicked, although, that sex toy kind of killed the entire thing.

But . . . what about the fling between Blackjack and Glory? There was that point where Blackjack said that the sex offered by the mare running the sex club was completely, just, you know . . . and that Glory's offering would be trite when that is considered . . .
So why the change, in the newest chapter? I know they . . . did it, before, but what they just did . . .
I will say, it's the least messed up use of bondage I've read in a while.

Welp, thought I might as well hors my own story here :3

The Daily Unlife


These are the voyages of the Canterlot ghoul Lemon Frisk. His mission: to find the Meaning of Unlife. His continuing perils: crazed raiders, feral ghouls, overzealous rangers, and a mare who won't stop poking him.

The story is notoriously plot-less (unless you count Misty Cloud's plot), completely character driven, and generally aimed towards humour. It does gets a bit emotional-rollercoaster-y though, since the main driving force behind it are the traumas of the main characters. I'm mostly exploring the way ghouls look at the last days of Equestria, and what keeps them going.

So, um, yeah, I hope you'll like it. I'll try to keep my chapters relatively short, but since they're days... you just got short days and long days, y'know.

When the missiles fall and the Old Equestria ends, Seafoam loses everything. This is the story of her finding something to live for again.

Even though this is set in the FO:E universe, it is entirely character focused, no violence for haters of gore! This is just because I always found the character moments of FO:E to be the most emotional. Also, do you think it's too angsty?

Fallout Equestria: Stable Crawler RaineDash!Es67jio/Qo 92718

Firstly I'd like to say that I love the Fallout Equestria world that Kkat has set up. And while her story was the best, some of the side stories are great as well, like Project Horizons, Heroes and Misfits.

I decided to start my own FoE story called Stable Crawler (as you've probably guessed, it's the play on the term dungeon crawler) and it takes place after the end of Fallout Equestria.

The basic story line is that, while the Gardens has cleansed Equestria, it did leave the NCR in bad need of a new power source. Eventually, their scouts come across Stable 0, which still has an operating door panel, meaning its reactor is still functioning. After figuring out a possible way to open the stable door, they hire some mercs to go in first and map out the vault. The protagonist, Ember a pegasus from Las Pegasus, is one of the mercs sent in first, and she gets trapped inside.

As a side note, I could use a reviewer if there are any in this thread. I didn't want to dump it on a reviewer who doesn't know about the FoE world.

Hello, I have recently started my own Fallout Equestria fan fiction titled Honor and Survival, the link leads to my cover page but as of now only chapter one is uploaded, please leave comments on it if you want! All reviews are welcome :D

Northern Hearts morning_angles!0eMPxHn02k 93496

Seeing as this is the FoE side stories thread, I figured I'd step in and get some opinions from the sources' mouths. I'll try to stop back and give some reviews and opinions on other writers' works in the process. Give and take, right? It's already 34k words, so its not for the faint of heart.

Fallout: Equestria - Northern Hearts

The fall of the cloud curtain has changed the face of Post-Apocalyptic Equestria, but not necessarily for the better. The long frozen north has begun to thaw, along with all its blood thirsty monsters, vicious predators, and opportunistic scavengers. And that's just the pony population. Lost among it all, the last runner of the 'Pony Express', Manila Parcel, wanders the Quebuck Wasteland in search of answers. But this is Quebuck, not the Ponave. Raging blizzards, cold hearted factions, and a best friend who is quite possibly insane will test Manila Parcel's endurance, patience, and tolerance for the bizarre.

>I tried reading through Pink Eyes, but the stilted writing made me nearly pop a blood vessel.
Yeah, no differential diagnosis needed here. I even tried it again months later and this time made it maybe... 6 or so chapters in before I just couldn't take it anymore

>I've given it thought, but the funny thing about it is that my idea didn't star a zebra. In fact, zebras in Zebrica were nearly extinct in my idea since most of them died during the war.
Nah, I don't think so. High population centers? Sure, probably. But considering the zebra's were able to take out almost every major military complex in equestria in a coordinated strike suggest the response would have been limited. This is further implied when the zebra's launched a sustained missile assault on Canterlot for hours on end.
Remember, they initiated, so they knew what to expect, and had the warning to implement their immediate contingency plans in expectation of a counterattack.

Stonershy!!Z0ZzV3LGt0 100190

Fuck I'm just following you everywhere now.

My co-worker keeps telling me to read either Pink Eyes or Past Sins and I don't know what to do. I've heard things about them both, but Pink Eyes has Fallout mixed in. What makes it unpalatable?


File: 133585206046.png (108.99 KB, 332x380, 0034-132650838711.png)

Pink Eyes is a bit flimsy, within reason considering the author is Italian speaking. I still have to finish it, but there's notably less... bending to the 'whims of the reader base' than Past Sins.

But I've got much looser reading requirements then most people. And I still have to read the last six chapters of it.


Huh, the more I try to make up a reason for them being mostly dead and gone, the less logical my idea seems :/.

Past Sins is the cotton candy of fics; sweet, sugary, but lacks any nutritional value. It tastes good at first, but eventually you eat so much you start to feel sick (in this case, NMM's return) and ask, "Oh dear Celestia, why did I eat all of that cotton candy?" And then Pinkie does some random bullshit as you throw up into a nearby flowpot.
It's a rainy-day fic. Don't expect anything too amazing from it. If you haven't read it yet, Jetfire's It's Dangerous Business would be my recommendation. Barring a rather obvious plothole and a slow beginning, it's a romping adventure story that features several interesting OC species and a diverse cast of characters, as well as some of the best renditions of canon characters in the fandom. In case the title doesn't give it away, the story draws significant inspiration from The Hobbit, and I daresay Jetfire did it justice.


File: 133585626009.jpg (501.75 KB, 1067x756, 74575 - Fallout Pink_Eyes Pupp…)

I've gotta say, I really enjoyed Pink Eyes. The stilted writing made it kinda slow going, but (for me at least) the cleverness and charm of the story really shone through it all. Pink Eyes is a comedic, subversive take on the grimdarkness of FOE that actually doesn't really subvert and isn't entirely comedic. The author evidently respects the setting and the story he's telling, but still has a sense of humour. It's a great blend.

I love a story that can make me laugh and cry, and Pink Eyes did that for me. If it's a choice between Past Sins and Pink Eyes, read Pink Eyes.

Or just say "screw it" and go with Ion's suggestion. Dangerous Business isn't everyone's cup of tea (due to all kinds of arguments about plotholes, stealing too much from Tolkien and authorial worldview)*, but I loved it and think there should be more stories like it.


Anonymous 100214

Honestly, the whole series is just ridiculous. It's simply too grimdark. Even in Fallout 3, no moments were as grimdark as the Fluttershy Medical Hospital sequence in Project Horizons. Isn't it just a bit stupid that a series that is partially inspired by a show with technicoloured ponies is darker than the series of games?


>Isn't it a bit stupid ...?
Put simply: No.

Anonymous 100217

Could you at least provide an explanation for how it isn't? It could be that I'm trying too hard to not find it silly.


>whole series
>Project Horizons
I think most would agree that Project Horizons is some of the grimdarkest stuff in the FOEverse. That's most of the reason I never really read any of it past about chapter sixteen. The original FOE is about my upper limit for grimdark.

I find it odd that people harp on about how FOE being darker than the Fallout games is some massive fic-breaking flaw. Yes, it is darker than the games and a lot darker than FIM, but that's hardly a bad thing in and of itself. Fanfic doesn't always have the same tone as its source material. I'll admit that I very nearly stopped reading Fallout Equestria in the early chapters because of the horrors Littlepip found in Twilight's Library, and I'll double-admit that there are plenty of reasons why none of these stories are anywhere near as amazing as some of the more rabid fans would claim (if Fallout Equestria is the best book you've ever read, you need to read more books), but I think the original story at least keeps a strong undercurrent of hope and optimism.

It's dark and downright depressing at points, yes, but it's a story about hope and friendship, there is light at the end of the tunnel, and it does have a (very much earned) happy ending. The grimdark, I feel, is justified and treated with appropriate gravity, and that's more than you get in most grimdark pony stories.

I think there's a hurdle of "fallout plus ponies plus grimdark, this is ridiculous what the tartarus am I reading?" that you have to overcome to enjoy this story, and not everyone wants to or should do that. That's probably what prompts a lot of the accusations of silliness. Is it justified? I don't know, and I don't really want to get into a subjectivism debate.

Anonymous 100228

Yes, but the story proper lacks the good factions, in addition to lacking equivelants of the truly caring individuals in the Fallout series that are capable of doing anything.


It doesn't really sound that you any real argument against the quality of the thing other than it being too dark for you, which has nothing to do with how good or how bad the story is, so this conversation is pointless... I think....


File: 133588156277.jpg (46.78 KB, 788x749, cev72.jpg)

I think you're going into it expecting it to be Fallout with ponies in text. Good crossovers don't just take their source material and use it bit for bit. There were certain themes in Fallout that kkat et al. decided to use and certain themes they didn't. If they're not your cup of tea, then all power to you in not wanting to read them, but you can't say that it's "too dark". If you took the dark elements out of Fallout: Equestria, would it still be the same? Obviously not. For better or for worse, the dark elements are there.

I can't for the life of my sympathise with the constant aversion to gore and sex. I'm as much against gratuitous use of it as everyone else, but experimentation demands failure. You can't keep saying "Does it really need to be there?" Those elements make the story. Remove those elements, and you have a totally different story.

Stonershy!!Z0ZzV3LGt0 100232

I've got Dangerous bookmarked, but I've yet to actually burrow into it. I'm not a huge Tolkien fan, but The Hobbit was pretty fucking awesome.

I guess I'll just sample a bit of Pink and Sins and see which one leaves a better taste in my mouth. I have no intention of delving into Project Horizons, though. I've researched that one and I do not like the things I've found.

Anonymous 100233

Look, you fail to realize that the problem is that the setting adds an unwarranted does of nihilism to it. I've got nothing against grimdark (provided it's done well), but it goes well beyond what a crossover between two series that are at heart optomistic warrants.


File: 133588244008.png (118.67 KB, 830x750, 133136037973.png)

Your word choice is all about saying, "This isn't allowed." Warranted by what standard? Literature is about exploring new ideas. Contrasting themes are an obvious corollary to that.

Notwithstanding your questionable perception that Fallout: Equestria is nihilistic. I've only read half of kkat's, and the themes I read are all about pervading optimism even in the face of terrible odds.

Anonymous 100238

I say that it's unwarranted due to the fact that fanfiction ought to share similar themes with the series it's about. Otherwise, you may as well just write your own fucking story.

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.

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?

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.

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

Also, PH is non-canon.

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: War Never Changes jarmari 119353

Umm hi...? I'm hoping I'm doing this right...heh.

(Romance) (Tragedy) (Dark)

When scavengers come across a single working cryo pod from before the war will the scientist within be able to help them break their way into the biggest secure facilities in the wasteland? And will they be able to help him figure out just how he ended up in the cryo pod in the first place? What secrets does this pony out of time hide? And just who is following them across the wastes?


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.

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.

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.

Hopefully this goes well. Ooh, boy, here we go:


In case anyone is interested, the link above will direct you to the story. Hopefully it entertains any of you, and I hope to hear from someone.

Project Polymorph Flutterawesome 125790

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.

You should just read all of them. Then you might learn a thing or two about how to actually write a story.

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.

>long time no see Strum
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.

Links of course, the story:

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.

Hi, I'd like to add my FoE story to the list and apparently this is the place to do so.

Title: Fallout Equestria - The Wish Machine

Author: RealmOfMereShadows


Synopsis: Nopony ever wanted the apocalypse, the fall of the Balefire bombs, the release of the pink cloud and all the mess that happened afterward. Fortunately, I survived the Last Day. Unfortunately, I lived long enough to see the hell that followed and fought long enough to leave my mark into the brickwork of the shaping Equestrian Wasteland.
My name is Vault Skin, but ponies know me as 'Waste'. And this is my story.
