    Hey Everypony, Try your hoof at writing

    Hey Everypony, Doomande and some of the others have decided to try to get another round of FoE: ABC, this time it is Enclave themed. This is to be for fun and it has been long time since a group project happened last time. They are having trouble getting enough writers for it so far. I am in, but would really appreciate it if some you others out there who would like to try your hoof at writing,

    Strange Coincidences and Events

    Sometimes when we read a story we will say to ourselves, "How could that have happened, what are the chances that those characters could know each other." Well, I would like to share a situation I had recently that brought such chance encounters home to me. Just over two weeks ago I went in for knee surgery. As the preop/postop nurse was getting me ready we were talking and discovered that we had

    Possible delays

    I just wanted to let everypony know there may be a possible delay in my posting the next couple of chapters due to my going in for a knee replacement today. But it also may mean I can write more while I recover.

Strange Coincidences and Events · 2:26am June 9th

Sometimes when we read a story we will say to ourselves, "How could that have happened, what are the chances that those characters could know each other." Well, I would like to share a situation I had recently that brought such chance encounters home to me. Just over two weeks ago I went in for knee surgery. As the preop/postop nurse was getting me ready we were talking and discovered that we had served together at RTC Great Lakes as staff back in the mid-1990s. This is the same hospital that my brother has worked since 2005. That alone was surprising to me. What happened after the surgery was as well as humorous to me.

It seems that due to unforeseen issues I had to be under anesthesia longer than originally planned. The anesthesiologist decided to use a less often and stronger one to keep me under, all of this was unbeknownst to me. As I was coming out of the anesthesiologist, I recall swinging my arms and fighting yelling "Raiders, get off of me you #@$@$ Raiders." the whole time this former shipmate of mine was fighting to hold me down. When I was finally lucid he was laughing and I asked him about it. He told me what had happened and what I was yelling.
Because I was playing so much Fallout 4 I had to ask, "Was I human?" This caused him to burst out laughing as he told me, "No, you thought you were a horse."

Slightly shocked I explained, the reason I asked that question and I told him about the world and fandom of Foe. Shaking his head he just smiled at me and told me "If it got you to fight like that, I may need to read some of those stories." So perhaps we have another convert to the fandom. As I side note, my brother has since let me know that the OR staff that were there when this happened are still laughing about it. So we never know who we may meet again and how we can influence each other's lives.
