War. War was a foreign concept. After over a millennium of peace, the dark shadow of war covers Equestria leading to the Last Day and the end of pony civilisation for two hundred years. This is the tale of a pony who came long before the Wasteland, before Littlepip, before Red Eyes and the Enclave. This is the story of Rivet Bolt and his journey to become a champion of peace through an instrument of chaos.

Unfortunately, Our Finest Hour is dead and I currently have no interest in continuing/rewriting it at present. However, if you enjoy my writing, please check out my current FO:E side fic Waking the Dead! I'm sure you'll enjoy at least 5% more than a memory extraction!

440018 Should be done in around a week or two, glad you're enjoying it :twilightsmile:

Very nice I like. The more fallout the better, check mine out if you get a chance

466484 I'll try to update roughly every week or two, school depending. Hope you don't loose interest if you have to wait that long :twilightsheepish:

468864 Will this just take place during the war and not in the Equestrian Wasteland or will he wake up from stasis or cyro sleep and into the Equestrian Wasteland or something like that?

469037 I'm planning for this to stay in just the war for the moment, the Wasteland has many tales but I think the war allows for a slightly newer spin on the universe:twilightsmile:

466743 Thank you! And I have, it's pretty damn good :pinkiehappy:

YES UPDATE. I'm gonna read this when I get to school.

Fine chapter sir, well done
When i read the title all i could think was 'This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine!'
Good show :moustache:

497943 Yeah, watched it for inspiration on the training scenes :pinkiehappy: Glad you liked it!

My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
This is how i fell about my SK :pinkiehappy: I'm glad you haven't fallen prey to the FoE side story slump. A lot of side stories get you hooked in a couple chapters then no update for months or never at all. its a damn shame. Any ways keep on keepin on and remember... have fun with it!

Great chapter mate looking forward to more:pinkiehappy:

Another excellent chapter. Good show ol' chap :moustache:

yay new chapter cant wait for the next one

567683 Woo! I can safely say that I have fan or two... maybe three now :pinkiehappy: glad you're still reading it :twilightsheepish:

567706 no problem but when is he gonna wake up with his cybernetic enhanced body?

567723 Very soon! I'll be putting the next chapter up week after next so I hope you can wait just a teeny tiny bit longer :twilightsmile:

Another excellent chapter. Love the new cover image by the way. :pinkiehappy: I did notice a few small errors but nothing serious. I don't know if you have a pre-reader or not but i would be glad to look your chapters over early to iron some of those issues if you want. Or i could PM them to you whatever works for you. Anyways keep up the good work.

573255 Thank you on both counts :pinkiehappy: If you could PM me them that would be awesome and I'm considering using gdocs for pre-reading in the near future so any help is appreciated :twilightsmile:

629828 Glad you think it's good :pinkiehappy: Always cheers my day up when someone likes my story

yay new chapter this was a good one he finally woke up :twilightsmile: cant wait for the next chapter

635681 Glad you enjoyed it :pinkiehappy: I'll be releasing these fortnightly until exams have passed, but hopefully the length will compensate for it :twilightblush:

Just thought I'd self promote a little bit more, I've started up a tumblr for Rivet so if there's anything you wanna know, just drop a question :twilightsmile:

Nice. :pinkiehappy: Very entertaining as always. Great to hear you've joined the tumblr game. Check Crack's out if you want. http://askcrackshot.tumblr.com/

639370 Shall do! And thanks for the follow on it :pinkiehappy:
648066 Thank you! I hope I can keep up with the tension and pacing, hope you enjoy it! :twilightsmile:

Very nice and the memory extraction scene was priceless! :rainbowlaugh:
I looked like this while reading it= :rainbowhuh: :pinkiegasp: :raritydespair: :rainbowderp: :rainbowlaugh: :moustache: Well played good sir.

719261 I'm glad you liked it :pinkiehappy: I was thinking about how they would extract the memories, and I reckoned it would involved something going in somewhere. It just got out of hand near the end though :twilightsheepish:

ohhh Changeling invasion failed come on 1000 ponies :facehoof:

Well that was epic. Another fine chapter my good sir. :moustache: I was on the FoE side doc and noticed you weren't on there. It's great place to post your fic and they have a lot of cool stuff going on. You should definitely check out the Hole in the Clouds Wasteland Spotlight. We only need 2 more authors to get started and everyone who enters will have their week. It's basically a good way for lesser known fics to get any kind of art they need while the winning artist gets whatever prize that weeks author has listed. Check it out when you get the chance. :pinkiehappy:

good chapter :twilightsmile: and Rainbow didnt you learn from last time :facehoof:

Nearly four weeks since the last chapter :applecry:

wow Snow is a traitor never knew looking towards the next chapter cause I wanna see Rainbows and Pinkies faces when the public sees it :pinkiehappy:

Hey man, nice story! It's great to see someone else writing one during the war ^^

This is a great story, I'm really enjoying it and want to read more. But... Last updated in the last half of 2012? Is it dead?
