The Last of Us - BlackRainboom

Four ponies survived after a horrible virus wiped out the pony race either killing them or turning them into mutants who walk the streets at night. But this virus has a dark backstory and everything might not be as it seems.

Cloud Flicker- Wait, what was that?!

Cloud Flicker slept peacefully for the first time in months. She woke up to the sound of cereal being poured into a bowl. Cloud flipped over onto his side to the sight of Rough Charger gleefully munching on some cereal.

Rough Charger noticed him sitting up "Oh good, you're awake. You want something to eat or drink?" he said.

"I could sure go for some cranberry juice right now. But as for food I'm fine." said Cloud who came to a sudden realization.

"Hey! How are you walking around perfectly?! I though your ribs were broken!"

"Oh about that. I stocked up on medications when I realized I was immune to the virus. I realized I would end up needing them for something like this and I had just the thing. My ribs aren't completely healed but I'll manage." said Rough Charger as he poured Cloud her cranberry juice and handed it to her.

"Thanks for the juice." said Cloud who quickly started chugging it down.

"Today I should probably give you a tour of the city. So you know how to get around when we go out on supply missions and such. Sound good?"

"Yeah that's a good idea. I really don't want to get lost out there after dark."

Rough Charger drank the dregs of milk out of the bottom of his cereal bowl and slammed it down on the table. "Lets get going shall we?"

"Okay lets go!"

"First I want to show you the weapon rack." Rough walked over to a seemingly normal wall and pushed his hoof down on something which caused the wall to flip around displaying a rack of weapons. All that was left was two crossbows and a couple of bolts.

Rough threw a crossbow and one bolt at Cloud.

"It's not much but it is all we got for now. Don't shoot unless you absolutely have to. Got it?"

"Got it."

"Okay then follow me and lets start this tour."

The two ponies walked out into the sunlight. Rough walked over to the nearest street sign.

"As you can see we are on 17th street. Since we will only be going on the north side of the city if you get lost and find 17th street always take a right and you will eventually make it back. Got it?"

"Got it."

So the two ponies walked through the abandoned city. Rough Charger pointing out important landmarks and locations with Cloud Flicker listening intently. After a couple of hours they reached the warehouse district.

"Okay Cloud. This is where we will go to get supplies when needed. The warehouses are filled with plenty of food and water and an assortment of other goods that are helpful to our survival. The bad news is none of these warehouses hold weapons. That is the reason we are painfully low on weapon supplies. This is also where the tour ends. Let us turn around."

So they trotted back to the bunker at a brisk pace. They needed to get back before dark. But on the way back something caught Clouds eye. As the two were crossing an intersection out of the corner of her eye thought she saw a pony wearing a radiation suit. She turned her head suddenly to see an open manhole and a pony quickly jumping into it down the sewers.

"Rough did you see that! Some pony wearing a radiation suit just jumped in that manhole!"

"Okay, that is really weird. Leave the pony alone for now. We will come back tomorrow to take a closer look."


The two got back to the bunker at sunset and ate a dinner of daisy sandwiches. That night Cloud Flickers dream were a haunted by that mysterious pony. He was chasing her and she didn't know why."
