My name is Austin G. Lancaster. Before the first strike, I served in the United States Marine Corps as a Lieutenant in Western Iraq to defend against rebels allied with Russia. My job, life, and everything I considered normal is long gone. The only thing that I have to remember it are the scars I bear.

Was it worth it...?

Took your time! Nice work man. ...There was one thing that really stood out to me though. The description of the cache. 'sealed in encased steel' This does not make sense for describing a container. You could just say it was sealed steel case, encased steel is'nt a material. The way its wrote makes it sound like encased steel is a type of steel thats all...

Anyhoo I look forward to see where you take this

5858373 thanks! And yes I think I should have probably elaborated on that. Oh well but I will be posting 1 chapter a week.:moustache:

"That's impossible… there used to be millions of us!"

7 billion people in the world. Amazing, isn't it?

In other news, not to diss your story: the half-life of Uranium is about 4.5 billion years, so, if it's only been two thousand or so years, I'm going to assume that there is at least some uranium powder (From the Russian missile), and therefore radioactivity, remaining, meaning that he should be fucking dying of radiation poisoning, but I'm not going to argue or nit-pick, plot hole aside you sir, are pretty damn good at writing. You sucked me in, and had me going until the end.

5858780 HAHA! you had me going for a moment there! Thanks for the wonderful comment man! but hey my only retort to that is Magical ponies will be magical ponies. Thanks for reading!

5858863 No problem.....I guess...? Was that first bit a compliment or an insult.....?

I don't care either way, just curious...?

But yeah, magical ponies, and all that hullubalu.

5858886 Oh... Then thanks! :twilightsheepish:

Also, I got hooked, do you know when another chapter might be out...? :trixieshiftright:

5858901 Sunday next week 1 chapter a week so far my editor and I are currently at chapter 4 / 5 of revising this story its been slow going but its about time I released it I've been holding it back for nearly 2 years now. :moustache:

5858927 Aye, thank you.

Wait... So only five chapters to this entire story? Or are those the ones you've completed?

5858952 Theres about 30 /40 if I remember correctly I wrote 2 years back im in the process of re-writing them; and so far ive written about 10 chapters so far but about 5/6 aren't revised yet. so releasing these 1 week at a time will give me and my editor a breathing space to work on em and make sure they are perfect for reading. :yay:

Change 7 days to a year or at the very least 7 months, also there would still be enough radiation to kill a man after 7 days, give the man a Geiger counter and a hazmat suit! P.s. a Geiger counter measures radiation.

5859468 Yes I am aware of that. but for the sake of the story moving along I didn't want to elaborate each month. I assure you I know all about radiation sickness and it is something that I will cover later on. Thanks for reading! :twilightsmile:

Love it so far... I do hope he will find these 3 things

1: A car... (preferably a GT500 2015)

2: A gun

3: Another Human ;)

5861837 LMAO :rainbowlaugh:

1. Nah there's no real traces of human presence anymore after they terraformed the planet.

2. He has some weapons with him that he got from the Cache.

3. I've been thinking about this actually. I'm not sure if I will or not. that would be one hell of a twist though )_)

Thanks for reading!

5861978 Well if you think about this "said" human would be in another cryopod it makes sence to be honest military never work alone on research projects

5863878 I thought about it. Perhaps its something I will implement into my next story in the sequel. Depends, but it does call for some really interesting ideas.... :rainbowderp:

I like the stir i hope you continue it.

5869295 Thank you! Next Chapter this Sunday. :twilightsmile:

I'm pretty sure the United States national missile defense would have taken out any ICBMs or other ballistic missiles long before they hit any populated area.

5878317 not if they where disarmed long before but it happened anyways. Thanks for reading.

Used to be 29 likes now its 30 sneaky assassin toast approves

he is gonna crack and fuck up, but then he is gonna move on with his life....somehow XD

I do hope that the tomes that are in his language he reads and its like his diary or soming :D

5898300 Twilight doesn't possess the Tomes, she just mentioned them.

5898364 It will take a long time for him to adapt though. and I have some cool stuff planned later on.

5898349 But... who does? DUN DUN DUUUN

5898392 Nice.

5901278 No prob! Although I do think that First Contact was initiated too quick. He should have observed the ponies for a few days, or maybe even weeks, to learn their week eases and strengths. But, not-picking aside, it still stands, good job.

5901795 I did that purely because there wasn't much in the way of food around him, he would have most likely starved from lack of food and water. There is a stream but being him he determined it wasn't worth getting the s***s from tainted water. It was more of a decision which he could feasibly do. Thanks for the comment! :twilightsmile:

5901840 well yeah, but BT for the USMC would have taught him survival in the wild, possibly if he took SERE, which is Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape, I forgot where I was going with this, but still, he should have the skills and tools to survive in the wild for at least a few weeks.


5903491 Unfortuneatly he does have the training but doesn't account for being lack of anything within the immediate vicinity and without tools he can really only rely on the sun for where he's going even.

5903837 hmmm... That's a good answer. I have no further argument...

Uhh school why!
Keep up the good work man hope to read the next chapter soon.
