This story is a sequel to Sleeping in the Light
A prequel to: The Parliament of Dreams
95 years in the future, where Equestria is a parliamentary republic and cutie marks don't exist. There is a small nation known as the Federation of Salaya, situated in chain of islands in the South Sea. It's a peaceful, idealistic setting with sun, surf, and most importantly, Insurgency. A series of bad judgement calls strands three ponies of the Equestrian Republican Army's Fillydelphia Regiment in the middle of dense jungle. Cut off from the rest of their forces and running low on ammunition with only a nervous and inept officer to lead them, they're fighting for their lives.
In the words of Lance Corporal Summer Lightfall: 'We're screwed'.
