    Concerning the Value of Groundhog Day

    Now,  you may think, this is a bit late, no? But this wasn't actually inspired by Groundhog Day, nor by the movie about that day (which I haven't seen, anyway), but by Admiral Biscuit's excellent story Silver Glow's Journal, in which a pegasus exchange student got acquainted with an odd human tradition that went against everything her weatherpony training had taught her.

    Unlike the poor pony in the story, I did realize that weather predictions given by a sleepy woodchuck were not to be taken too seriously, and my ponderings on that subject condensed into this poem:


    Concerning the Value of Groundhog Day

    By Nyerguds

    Oh it's just a tradition

    Based on old superstition

    You won't risk extradition

    By finding it dumb,

    So just make it your mission

    To avoid all derision

    Go ahead, make a wish and

    Enjoy all the fun.

    But in case you are fishin'

    For some truth in the vision

    Of a groundhog's decision

    As it sees the first sun,

    Then I'll make the admission

    There is not much precision

    In the assumed position

    Of that old groundhog's bum.

    (With salutes to Tom Lehrer, whose style undoubtedly influenced this :yay:)

    This seems appropriate.


    Rassemblons-nous au même moment

    Nos mille visages sur un écran

    Pour déclarer d'une seule voix

    "Prenons courage"

    Let us gather at one moment

    Our thousand faces on one screen

    To declare with unified voice

    "Let us take courage"

    (from "Calling All Dawns", the full album from which the Civilization IV opening song "Baba Yetu" originates)


    Now, I'm Flemish, so I'm certainly not one to sustain the myth that Belgium is French, but this song just seemed appropriate as tribute. Incidentally, this is one of my favourite songs, like, ever. It never fails to give me chills.

    Let's not forget all those others out there; the recent bombing in Pakistan claimed about twice as many victims as the Brussels attacks, and all that is still peanuts compared to the tens of thousands that died in the war in Syria.

    It's a dangerous world out there. But don't hide in your homes; that's what they want. Instead, let's gather on the streets and squares... and take courage.

Foresight has an amazing magical talent; the ability to peek slightly into the future. As far as he knows, he's the only one with such an ability in the whole world.

Well. He sincerely hopes he is. He's a bounty hunter, after all. And a clairvoyant trying to outsmart another clairvoyant... that probably has a lot of potential for spontaneously exploding heads.


This story could be considered to be set in the Equestrian Wasteland from Fallout: Equestria , because it was technically written for the setting... but in the end there isn't anything specific linking it to the FO:E lore. It's more of a western-style thing, really. I just needed a setting where bounty hunters and hitmen were a normal acceptable thing :raritywink:

This story is a sequel to Fallout Equestria: The Daily Unlife

It has been over a year since Lemon Frisk first dove into the ruins of Whinnyapolis and decided to call them his home. In fact, it has been exactly one year since he spent his first Hearts and Hooves day with Misty Cloud there, and was forced to realize that despite everything, the day still made him feel miserable.

So this year, he won't spend Hearts and Hooves day with Misty. He'll spend it with someone he should've visited a long time ago.

Written for the Fallout: Equestria group's collab of February 2016... which more or less means it can be read as stand-alone story :raritywink:

To some, the Day of Sunshine and Rainbows had a different name. Because, when LittlePip destroyed the cloud cover, all those vegetables from the Enclave cloud farms had to come down somewhere.

Written for the Fallout: Equestria group's collab of January 2016.

This story features some characters that readers may remember from my main Fallout: Equestria story, The Daily Unlife.

As Fen Runner dutifully worked on the ancestral farm, he glanced at the southern edge of his field with a feeling of unease. He wondered when that had started; that odd gut feeling that down there, in those caves, something horrible happened.

He gazed at the ancient wartime complex in the far distance, and hoped this didn't mean he would be the next victim of its curse.

[Inspired by Enya - I Want Tomorrow, and written for a challenge posted by Emerald Flight in The Writer's Group.]

This is the story of the stallion who loved Luna while she became Nightmare Moon, and was loved back by her throughout it all.

In the end, though, he chose to see the dawn again. He wanted a tomorrow.

I wake up, dazed. I look around me, and see robot arms gently lifting me out of a bloody cocoon. Not that I have words for this, yet. I know nothing. Nothing at all. Then, the strange helmet appears. I look on, fascinated, as it is put on my head.

As the memories flood in, I realize I made the worse mistake of my life.

I said "yes" when somepony offered me a second chance.


This story is kinda set in the Hippocratic Research Center of Fallout Equestria: Project Horizons, where Project Chimera takes place, but since I took some serious liberties with my version of the place I don't really think Project Horizons is required reading for this. Though it may help to get a better understanding of the place.

Misty Cloud and Lemon Frisk find themselves in trouble... and it's entirely Misty's fault.

This was written for the 300 Members Special competition at the Fallout: Equestria group, and it seems I still got it, since I won third place!

Any events that happen in this are totally non-canon with the main TDU storyline. Jokes used in this silly one-shot may be recycled in the main story later! You have been warned.

A changeling who has lived at the side of an Equestrian mare for most of his life finds himself in the middle of the changeling invasion of Canterlot. He has no idea who the invading queen or hive are, and just wants to stay where he is, and more importantly, who he is.

The spell that ends the invasion doesn't discriminate, though. With his old pony form irreversibly stripped away, and the whole kingdom out to hunt his kind, he tries to keep his family together, and struggles to find his place in the world.

Please comment! Even now, I'd love to hear what people think as they read through :pinkiehappy:
