    UUUUUGHHH

    Okay so I'm not dead and my stories aren't either. I get so many comments asking me "y u no update" "is it ded" "update when"...

    I'm over 5 thousand words into chapter 3 (nearly finished) and I have begun writing chapter 4 already. Calm your tits people.

    I just have a life and little time to write. Add to that more worries and a whole lotta stress about the future, I'm not very productive on the writing side right now. I do what I can, just stop bothering me about it, for fuck's sake. It's not like I have a fucking paetron or ask for money.

    Speaking of money, if anyone needs a programmer, I'm looking for a job here. I know Java, (and Android, duh), dotnet (special mention to VB), object-oriented programming, bases of even-driven programming, web programming (PHP/HTML/CSS/JEE/Glassfish...). I'm good with databases (SQL2 and bases of SQL3) worked a lot with MySQL. It's been a while I haven't worked on a project but it's like riding a bike, it comes back fast.

    Oh, and I'm not socially impaired so I can do client relations. I can't really be bothered to spell out my resume here so there you go. Google Drive fucks up the formatting but whatever. And yeah, that's me.

    Peace!

This story is a predecessor to Operation Homecoming


[S.T.A.L.K.E.R. crossover.]

Now with TVTropes page!

We are S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s: Scavengers Trespassers Adventurers Loners Killers Explorers Robbers. The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, the most dangerous place on Earth, is our home. Radiation, killer mutants and deadly anomalies are just another day at the office -just another day in the Zone, as we say. We get by, day after day, by scavenging gear, trespassing and exploring in forbidden areas, seeking for new adventures, all on our own; we kill for money, loot or survival and sometimes rob each other. Well, not everyone does the robbing part, that would be the Bandits' job.

I named myself Strider. I am a free stalker and I do not even know what I am doing here, not that I care anyway.

My name is Vano. I'm a free stalker and one of Strider's rare friends. It's a peculiar predicament, trust me.

My name is Celestia. I'm a free stalker and just want to get back home. Well, I wanted. Maybe I still do.

This is our story.


First time writing a story ever. Constructive criticism and comments are appreciated and encouraged, just don't kill me in the process. Romance is a sub-plot thrown in there for exercise and because it's popular, apparently. I made the cover art. I was bored and felt like drawing something.

I like where this is going. Well done.

Also.

>"the Zone is a world of its own."

Quick, change the t to a capital T before the grammar neighzis show up and start hatin'.

>>2243940

Because I want a better overall quality. And i'm an attention whore. :pinkiehappy:

Don't fret, the rewriting process shouldn't be too long. I should be able to go through one chapter a day.

>>2243960fuck,now i got that turd guy from southpark in my head now......

A decent STALKER/MLP Crossover? I said come in, don't just stand there!

Anyway, I noticed a typo. "It was logic to start our hunt there" should be "It was logical to start our hunt there."

Ok maybe I'm being a bit buyest here cuz Stalkerr SOC and COP are my favorite fps open world rpg's and i am really loving the vibe the prolog is giving will have to follow it closely nice work oh and here's something to consider

"and my armor seemed and my overcoat seemed in good shape."

I think it would have sounded a lot better if it was just

"my armor and my overcoat seemed in good shape."

without the 1st "and"

:moustache:

>>2244294

Thanks man. Typos are normal here and there considering I don't have a proof reader or editor.

>>2244314

To make it better. Don't worry. I'm already halfway through chapter 2. :raritywink:

Good job getting featured, it's well deserved.

Ti's a good fic!

Keep being awesome!

Love this chapter it's just something about :trollestia: being so vulnerable it adds that something something

>>2244648

Thanks! It blew my mind when I saw my little fic in the feature thingy!

This may be a little bit late because I've got a metric fuckton of paperwork to do atm. But hey, It's there, isn't it? So shut up and enjoy :heart:

“AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH”

I woke up, startled by loud screams and instantly pulled out my pistol, whipping it around. The equine creature was staring at a wide eyed, slack jawed Vano. And she  was screaming.

I sat up, pinching my nose and looked at the screaming creature.

“Please, would you calm down?!” I asked in English.

The creature stopped screaming, turned around and took off, running out the front door.

Should have seen that one coming.

I sighed. “I think you frightened her Vano,” I said.

My bearded friend looked at me with a scowl. “No shit. You’ve got some explaining to do.”

“That will wait. Follow me,” I said, grabbing my sniper rifle and my spare shotgun, walking out the door. “Let’s catch up to her before she gets into trouble again.”

Vano stood up, stirred and picked up his machine gun and shotgun before  following me. I was already climbing down the stairs when he catched up.

“Why would you bring some kind of evolved mutant in here?” he asked.

“She’s not a mutant... she actually spoke to me in English,” I explained.

“So what? Some mutants are known to ‘talk’, like Snorks or Controllers,” replied my friend, shrugging.

I stopped in my tracks and looked at Vano. “That was not unintelligible garble, but real, understandable English,” I said, making wide gestures for emphasis. “My best guess? We may have just made First Contact,” I added, climbing down the stairs again.

Vano followed me, wide eyed. “What? First Contact? Aliens are here to destroy us? As in Mars Attack? Independence Day? The War of the Worlds? The Day the Earth Stood Still?”

I chuckled. “No. She just seems lost. When I first found her she was almost dead, half eaten by Bloodsuckers,” i said, cringing at the thought.

“So more like E.T. then,” said my friend, smiling.

“Yeah. Flying Unicorn phone home.”

:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Flying unicorn phone home!!!

Their face was rotten and deformed, bloody tentacles sprouted out of its maw and their eyes shined with a malevolent yellow gleam.

Fix this ASAP! >:(

>>2254292

I really need a proof reader...

Wow i wasn't expecting this chapter to be this interesting and the part with the artifacts was brilliant

Can't w8 for next chapter :twilightsmile:

So there I am, releasing chapter at 2 AM. Holidays, fuck yeah! They're over in three days though. Better start to do my homework.

2 AM? Damn you really are in another country. Great chapter, a bit cleaner I think from the original and the inclusion of the AN with the links is a great touch.  

>>2268388

France, heh. Homeland of the baguette, fries and xenophobia. It's almost nice at no time of the year.

>>2268446

Good place to visit but never to stay?

>>2268537

I'll take your word for it, the closest I've been to France was French I and II in High School and all I remember from that is how to say hello and cheese omelet.

Most stalkers are polite and welcoming, except for that guy patrolling on the catwalk near the South entrance...
Get out of here stalker!

Now that that bit of silliness is out of the way, this is looking much more polished than it did.

Well I hope you're happy, I'm installing Shadow of Chernobyl and Call of Pripyat as I type this.

>>2268593

You won't regret it. It can be frustrating at times, but the whole series is amazing. Just remember to play on master difficulty all the time. The difficulty makes the enemies react quicker and the guns -yours and the NPCs- deal more damage. There is also a permanent thread on /vg/ where most people are polite and welcoming, except that Deep&Edgy guy...

New reader here, I like this fic very much although the TF2 references were... Awkward, somewhat.

Looking forward to the next chapter.

>>2268617

Ohh I've already played the entire series, I'm just upset because I'm gonna have to uninstall a half dozen steam games to have enough space, and my "read later" list isn't getting any smaller... :trollestia:

Also

>Going to /v/ for advice about video games

/tg/ always has way better STALKER threads imho.

>>2268670

/vg/, not /v/...

/v/ hasn't been about video games for a long time.

>>2268630

Yeah. The TF2 reference sort of fit better in the previous version but I wanted to keep it. There's also a Jason Bourne reference somewhere.

I don't get it,if Celestia is in the world of S.T.A.L.K.E.R., then why isn't she using her alicorn goodness magic to make the world a better place?:applejackconfused:

>>2269010

Causes have been established. It's written explicitly. Everything will be explained in detail in a later chapter.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat with MISERY mode installed on master now that's some challenging shit :moustache:

Like your version of Celestia kinda adorable

all in all really good chapter

>>2271298

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat with MISERY mode installed on master now that's some challenging shit

Try out ZoA or STALKERSOUP for SoC. Not dying? Impossible.

>>2271499 will have to try it out looks promising although the fact that in misery bullets in a unfortunate place can instantly kill you and first aid don't do jack shit other then heal like 10 % of your health and stop bleeding it kinda get ridiculous if you get caught off guard or surrounded without any cover

>>2273598

ZoA increases the A-life and everything is harder... I wasn't prepared.

In SOUP, the NPCs have lazor accuracy, microsecond reflexes and battles strategies that constantly outsmart the player. Oh, and one bullet WILL kill you, whether it hits your head or foot and whether you wear leather rags or a top of the line exoskeleton.

Misery is a walk in the park next to this.

>>2273647 I will take your word for it then although i kinda don't like the fact that you can die when someone shots you in the foot :rainbowlaugh:

I'm tired. There's school tomorrow.

Shit shall hit the fan soon.

Heh, didn't remember the explanation for Cel's embarrassment from the previous version, but

Also, check the description of the Space Bubble.

>>2280920

That scene wasn't in the previous version. I made it just for laughs and ice-breaking

I've finished to read the chapters, first thing: not bad, really, you keep the personality of each character pretty well, thumb up about the links for the atmosphere, ha and last thing: thank for the heavy weapons guy scene ? (make me laugh for the akwardness)

PS: Bon travail, continu comme ça ! :ajsmug: [from an unknow French guy]

Funfact: I have an ushanka, real fur, and damn is it soft! Cost me quite a bit, but it was damn worth it. Never had anything warmer :D

Also, calling it now, Tia and Strider are gonna have romantic feelings for each other :|
