Equestria was just a game, one of an endless number of semi-illicit online games created to take advantage of the ubiquity of cheap augmented reality hardware. But that changed, when for no reason anyone knows, the virtual population of Equestria woke up.

Two decades have gone by since then, and the world has been transformed. The former game network has grown to encompass the backbone of trade, infrastructure, and research the western world over. Its vast computational resources have given rise to an infinitely subdivided world of overlays and sublayers, coterminous with the various cities and towns within Equestria. Every person in the modern world is assigned a Synth, a pony personal assistant that adapts to their needs and helps them access those parts of the world governed by Equestria's systems.

It is a world Dakota barely remembers, thanks to an automobile accident that turned most of her body to mush. But thanks to the medical miracles created by joint equestrian-human research, her life is saved by a remarkably new series of implants.

But Dakota isn't content to sit around while her body slowly knits itself together. There are unanswered questions to answer, questions that will ultimately lead her to the oldest mystery of both worlds.

What is going on? What am I, where am I? Why do I walk through the dreams of abnormal horses? I was just a regular guy and now I'm walking through the dreams of sapient horses. My 'powers' rip me from this dimension to one that I'm never meant to set foot in. Why was I chosen, why am I so special? Is this some kind of joke or is it destiny? What purpose do I have here, why can't I just have a normal sleep? One dreamless night is all I ask for. Maybe this is all just a dream, or...maybe I'm dead.

Just, please, don't let the horse on the moon catch me.

This story is a sequel to Equestrian Border Checkpoint


Hi, I’m Anon. I’ll be your asshole for today. See, ever since I came to the Equestrian Border Checkpoint of Manehatten, I’ve done two things. Stamp papers, and insult everyone I pass. Keep in mind, that if I insult you, you’re either a genuinely crappy person, or I just wanted to do that because I’m bored. Anyway, glory to Equestria or some shit.

(Papers Please does NOT belong to me, but there isn’t a tag for it. Sex tag is for references to sex. Also, there’s a shizzle ton of swear words. It get heckin hectic .)

I’m starting to think, here at 12/14/18, that the only reason this gets to the featured list, is because it updates...

Of course, cover art was made by me.

3,000 years have passed since the Great Equestrian War. Both sides in war suffered major casualties. However, the end of the war didn’t bring prosperity to Equestria; instead, it brought its downfall. In a final attempt, the princesses, along with the bearers of Harmony, gave their life to defeat the enemy forces. With the massive devastation caused by the many battles, the Everfree Forest began to spread its roots far and wide causing a territorial division in the land of Equestria. The land of the North began to prosper yet, things weren’t as nice as they seemed. Friendship existed but hate was more visible than in the days of Equestria. As the years passed, records of Equestrian history were destroyed and  the only remains laid in the Woods of Everfree, where anypony who dared to venture into will never return. In the center of the New Kingdom, which got the name of Illusia, laid a small town. In it lived a young pegasus with a light blue coat, scarlet red eyes and his cutie mark, still not found. That meant that his fate wasn’t set yet. Join the young pegasus as he embarks on a life changing adventure to uncover the past.
