Chaotic Dreams


T
Source

The rewrite of this story can be found here.


Under the bleak sky of a post-industrial Canterlot, a young mare named Neverwas ekes out a living through her knack for hacking computers. Her day-to-day existence is turned on its head, however, when she becomes entangled in a hidden war between the government and the megacorporations vying for control of the city.
In a world where cybernetics and genetic engineering, computerized dark magic and reality-altering conspiracies have long since displaced sunshine and rainbows, can one little pony hold onto her own life—and her own existence?

Now featured on Equestria Daily!

Ooh, this looks awesome! :heart:

The laws of the Internet has been broken:twilightoops: you have 8 views and ten up votes :pinkiegasp:
This can only mean one thing:derpyderp2:, this story is awesome :derpytongue2:

Edit: I was right!!! :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

Enjoying this, so far.

Shadowrun Equestria? ALL MY YES!

I shall keep an eye on this. :twilightsmile:

This, ^ this right here ^, is some very nice work... I'll watch from the shadows.

I always love this kind of story, where I have no idea what's going on, but I don't want to stop reading it.

This has my interest, indeed!

Let's see where this goes, hmm?

~Skeeter The Lurker

I'm really interested in seeing where this is going, even if it does hit my pet peeve of adult ponies having cutie marks. I hope there's a good reason for it beyond "she just didn't find her special talent yet".

We.. will be watching.

If this were a video game (and yes, I think I can already tell that it would be an awesome game), we'd just finished the character design stage. Task one: get some food.

Anyways, Had this on my favorites since it came out. I just have a feeling that this will be one hell of an epic ride.

So when is the next chapter coming out? >.>

3178138

I'm waiting for something.

Neuromancer and Ponies. Lovely.

I can't wait to see what cyberpunk adventures will come up in this fic.

Cyberpunk with a chance of chocolate rain. Did Discord go evil again or something?

I take it that Glowsprites are sterile.

3298291

All will be explained soon. Thanks for reading!

Right now I'm in a state of shock. I'm also working on a cyberpunk project, and judging by the description it looks like we somehow had almost the same exact idea. :rainbowderp:

Added to RL list, because great minds think alike. :twilightsmile: :scootangel:

Pony Creator Booth. In a world where there's no such thing as a bad OC, because everypony is a bad OC...

I like this. Glowsprites sound cute as hell.

My attention, you have it. Continue.

This is really cool! Please write the next chapter! :D

3301702

It's currently in progress. Thanks for reading!

yay! cyberpunk! im goin' in!:pinkiehappy:

3301744

No problem, thanks for the update! :twilightsmile:

well this is vastly more intriguing than I had anticipated, the only problem I have is the cliché oc still being a blank flank in their later years, but its so well written that I can forgive it

3305109

Thank you. There is a reason for the protagonist having a 'blank' flank that will be explained in later chapters. Rest assured, it's not because she hasn't found her special talent yet.

3307208

Chapter 2 is currently in-progress.

Interesting start, I will definitely be watching for more of this story.

And with that last line the plot convolutes. This is going to be good.

And so it begins....... I really want to see where this goes.

I'm hanging from four separate cliffs simultaneously.

WHY CAN'T I LIKE AND FAVORITE EVERY CHAPTER?!

Old Soldier... But that means... But... Impossible... Noooooo.... Or perhaps... Yeeesssss... That would make more sense... Probably.

Looking forward to the next chapter.

Oh-ho-ho yes. I'm am definitely loving this.

Hmm.

Definitely can taste influences of Neuromancer, maybe a little Blade Runner and some Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

And well, it looks like things are escalating quickly. I suspect Hierwaus is an AWOL soldier or maybe a terrorist.

"why does a simple food run have to be so complicated?!"

rule n°1: it's never easy

you also have the option of the scariest words: "it's gonna be easy". my SR4 experience (along with a slight dose of paranoia) proved it many times

Well, this was worth the wait for sure! Can't wait for the next chapter.
I suppose she'll end up in some kind of revolution soon, and kill Daisy sometime.
But I'm not sure if I saw two errors in the beginning, there.

Gut feeling: that was actually Twilight.

Yes update update update update- you updated! Don't leave us hanging so long next time, plz?

Here was a small bastion of refuse from the Council,

*refuge

3317799 Wilfred Mott? Wilfred Mott.

Awesome! I'm getting curious as to who the other ponies on the cover are. :pinkiehappy:

What an intriguing story. I am certainly looking forward to more!

Definitely love the Neuromancer overtones here; that just so happens to be one of my favourite books.

Good chapter can't wait for the next one!

Damn, I thought I was being original. :trixieshiftright:

That is a ton of up front exposition. I hope the frame of the narrative is as compelling as the phlebotinum.

I don't mean to nag you, but when do you think the next chapter will be up? I can't wait for more of this story :)

This is some awesome world-building right here. Clicking that fav button.

This story has sssooooooo much potential!!! :pinkiehappy:
I really hope you plan on continuing this story. :pinkiesad2:
