Wicked Cut, a Tribal pony learning to be civilized, faces exile from his hometown to 'learn how to be a better pony'. Can he survive the Wasteland long enough to gain the knowledge and experience he needs to earn his place? Set in a post-Battle of Sunshine and Rainbows Equestria, this story will follow its protagonist through caves grimly holding the last of their radiation, abandoned pre-war facilities, and even to the clouds above.

This... I must read later. :twilightsmile: Is good for health.

Brilliant! I never would have seen through your cunning disguise !

Enjoyed chapter 2. Very fun. Keep at it!

Just wanted to say thanks for the name drop! Still reading through it but good sofar! :duck: :twilightsmile:

It's looking good, I'm liking the way Wicked is informed by not wise to ways of the wastes making him a bit different to the unwary stable dwellers and the hardened wastelanders :twilightsmile: One problem I did notice was, at times, the text was a bit heavy going. I found myself getting lost and having to read back, but more importantly I did read back because it was interesting. Looking forward to the next chapter! :moustache:

Blast you and your cliffhangers cant wait for the next chapter :twilightsmile:


I've got to be careful with that, its easy to push too far - noone wants to read paragraphs about a single leg motion!

Thanks for reading! Next chapter goes into production tonight.

Holy shit I'm in a Facfit!

Finally got around to reading this good job so far. Little weird seeing Chalice being portrayed as a collegiate pony even weirder seeing her Squee over a terminal :derpyderp2: as I said before do W/e you want to her alternate universes and all that .

Self promotion. http://imgur.com/VcK1o Chalice her mark is a grail.

Seriously thank you wire your the best!


Alternate Universe is my favorite explanation - but don't worry, she won't be around for long!

Glad to see you enjoyed the fic! The next chapter is at about 25% (3000 words down, 3000 to go - then comes brushies!)

I Will gladly wait for the next chapter of your series! Keep up the exelent work! :yay:

Thank you! Most of chapter six is sitting on the phone I'm writing this comment on, I hope to have it done and to pre-read by sunday!

Something is going to have to make him tough up. :rainbowdetermined2:

Pretty ace, like the characters alot.


Why? I mean, sure, it'd be boring if he stayed a level one weakling the whole game, but you don't run out of the Stable and start destroying everything that offends you.



thank you! now that I'm back from the lake, I hope to get ch 6 out to pre-read tonight.

oohh a cure for taint eh? too bad before the war ended they never figured it out


You ain't kiddin, there!

Gardens should have taken care of the problem, though.. right?

magical polution sure. but stuff like garbage and coal something entirely else. All that smog in 1800's London like in Sherlock Holmes stories was from coal polution.


"That actually works wonderfully as a metaphor, Mr. Brick, thank you. And it's precisely correct. Even after Gardens stripped the worst of the magical radiation and corruption from the environment, we are still plauged with normal pollution and contamination. A burned building that falls into a river can make the water downstream for miles unsafe to drink. Even worse if it was.. occupied."

Atmospheric pollution is something I'm going to touch on at some point - stinky air is not just stinky!


Thank you! I'm actually hunting for a few equine posers so I can keep track of limb and strike and whatnot easier. It takes a lot of effort to keep fights coherent and.. ha - realistic!

Wicked Cut is now a tribal barbarian, he gets one Rage a day.
Headcanon achieved.

If hitting things with a stick is wrong, I don't wanna be right!

"Fallout: Equestria belongs to Dan Shive, and was popularized by Kkat and Somber"

Fallout: Equestria belongs to Kkat, who was inspired by (a piece of artwork by) Dan Shive. And Somber helped add to its popularity.


good point - I'll go make that change.

Once again great work! I will once again gladly wait for the next next chapter! :twilightsmile:

Just wanted to pop in and say, great job on this chapter. Very solid chapter, and I love Lyrical so much. She's so adorable. Sunrise is totally cute too.

Looking forward to next chapter! :twilightsmile:


Sunrise was supposed to be barely sentient. That did NOT work out.

why is it that the characters are telling me how they're going to interact?

Good chapter and I like Sunrise shes cool I hope Lyrical gets to stay :twilightsmile:


I'm gonna have to commission something with Sunrise, she's so fun!

Wirepony, I demand more.

Lyrical and Sunrise are cute.


I'm cudgeling my brain trying to figure out a way to keep her around, but she's stuck in the lake. 8(

You mean the lake that would make for a viable settlement as soon as they make the water cleaning plant operational?

*bops wire on the head*

we need to discuss this more, why u no on irc

no comment. I don't know how much of my pissed off is bad brain chemistry and how much is legit. Also I'm busting butt prepping for a mega garage sale, which means cleaning up the garage after my pig roommates.

well i have a fealling that lyrical will most likely become Wiked's new follower and maby they can use any knoledge that sunrise can remember about the plant to get a reason for them to stay, after all if lyrical has to leave who would be next, * points at wiked* yep


Is making more as we speak! of course, I'm only .4 kwords into chapter 8, but I have a pretty good idea of what's going down.. I learned that from VolrathXP, go read Starlight while you're waiting :twilightsheepish:

And you seem to have caught Wicked's new companion perk, too! :pinkiehappy:

i pay attention to detail very well kinda a natural perk of mine, same thing with sniper rifles... oh how i love to shoot a 30cal!

My Remington 700 in .30-06 is my second favorite gun. I can't get over how awesome my Kimber .45acp is, though. I.. I'm a pistol fan. :fluttershbad:

892983 Awesome! I wish i owned my own firearm but being 15 has its limitations... but the 30 cal has been my fave wepon so far! havent shot a pistol yet... when i get the chance il have to try it out! also have you used a bow before? i use em whenever i go to summer camp, im not as accurate with them as i am with a gun but i usualy hit my target :rainbowwild: PS: for some reason when i replied to your coment instead of it showing your name it showed the numbers 892983 with two arrows in front of em.... is that your account nummber on the site that is the code for your user name? just curious.

hmm wonder where they are going to go now good chapter :twilightsmile:

I had to pull three scenes that, on review, were pushing 'saucy ' and headed towards floppy....
Nope. Not yet anyway!

Well, first they have to make it out....

1035083 oh yes indeed wonder what misadventures will occur :trollestia:

YES! YES!!!!!!!! yet another great chapter keep it up! :yay:

A seemingly important character getting owned by ghouls? I like it! Excellent story looking forward to updates.


Thank you! The next chapter is being written as we speak. It's been a hell of a delay, but I had a hell of a time on a week long fishing trip in Valdez.

Wicked should have a monocle that pops out when he goes into tribal rage.

well worth the wait for this chapter good one again and glad the Lyrical left with Wire :twilightsmile:


All of the myriad plans and plots and theories I have for the future keep those two together. The jury's out on whether or not they'll end up 'together-together' or not, though. :scootangel:
