Fallout Equestria: The Daily Unlife

Postby Nyerguds » Mon Jan 02, 2012 10:27 pm

Hi everypony! Some people already know me from staying up in the chat and the side stories doc until ungodly hours (like the one at which I'm posting this now; 4:30 AM, I must be crazy).

So anyway, I've always wanted to read a story about the daily life of a ghoul in the Fallout Equestria world, to see their general look on things. Since no one seemed to have written one, I started one myself.

Note that this story isn't very serious. That doesn't prevent it from being quite an emotional rollercoaster though; being a ghoul, the main character has obviously been through some really awful stuff, like seeing everypony die, and well, dying, of course. This story is also completely character driven. It really just tells the story of a ghoul who leaves his stable and goes out in the wastelands, expecting nothing, and taking everything as it comes. If this story will ever get an overbearing plot (the story kind, you pervs), I assure you it will be entirely by accident. And before you ask, yes, that has happened before, in some of my totally non-MLP-related writings.


Since images apparently make or break stories, I made a pony in Generalzoi's Pony Creator, pasted him into Gimp, added a few layers of decay to make him look like a Canterlot Ghoul, and put a blatantly googled Fallout picture behind him. Say hello to Lemon Frisk! (and Misty Cloud, too)

So, without further ado...

Well. This is a strange fic, but it does have a charm on its own.

Lets get down to brass taxes.

The main character is fine, but he really seems to know a bit too much. Explosive collars blast direction and pressure weaknesses? Just What the heck has he been up to prewar / while "scavenging" ?

Though i guess Ditzy explains most of that in her book. HMM. More exposition!
Being evil is not the same as being heartless.

He's usually trying to look knowledgeable while he doesn't have much real experience in the wastelands, besides the mentioned "book knowledge". But yeah, the Guide would probably have some info about slavers and the specific nastiness of their collars. Him knowing that specific type of collar is probably pure bluffing, though. As the chapter 0 perk says, he's kinda prone to doing crazy things.

I updated the logo to have the Rainbow Dash cutie mark in the O of "fallout", to match the general FOE logo :)
