Weavers of Dreams

Welcome to the internet, where all arguements are invalid because we can't shove books down anyone's throats. Have a nice day.


Mercy Andromeda had always wanted to go to space, ever since she was a little filly. When she wakes up to her life-long dream after a devastating act of sabotage from the zebras, she finds a horror story in the aftermath. She forgets her dream and goes down to talk some sense into the ponies below.

No pony seems to take her seriously, and she resorts to using her highly advanced "assets" to get them to listen. Between pink clouds, raiders, and comic books, she'll prove to the wasteland that she's a mare worth their attention.

How will the wasteland survive when a mare with conservative views and ideals descends upon them looking like she just jumped out of a comic book?

Sounds like a good story.... okay I'll bite

I think this story shows promise:twilightsmile:, although it could use some editing and spell/grammar checking

6035358 Thank you very much. :yay:
We shall try not to disappoint. :rainbowdetermined2:

6036212 Yeeaah... nighttime is usually the only time the group can come together to write. So we're usually pretty tired, yet determined, at that point. :pinkiesick:

We'll try to do better in the future. :rainbowdetermined2:

I can't wait for the next chapter she should try contacting another radio station again

This story needs more love.... I wonder how you make stories popular?

that gas is not the same as the canterlot one

6055092 Well it was actually a few years before the bombs fell, so it was in its less advanced form. Plus... being out in zero-gravity with no ozone to stop cosmic radiation might have had some added effects. Which is why modern, real-life space shuttles have a layer of gold to protect the astronauts.

Great story. Shows great promise, I can't wait for more ^.^

Not bad... I was expecting worse, because this story was so heavily down-voted. But it's good so far, and barely started after five chapters. I'll bookmark this and check back later. Have an up-vote to help balance the scales!

6057292 Thank you. We appreciate it.:pinkiehappy:

We shall strive onward in good faith :raritywink:

oh gosh Space Captain Andromeda fic YAY! Definitely will read at some point.

This is looking good. My only suggestion would be to work on the syntax and spelling of the final product before you put it out. I'm sure there's somebody out there willing to edit these sorts of things for you.

6084436 We'll see what we can do. But then it might take a little longer to update. :pinkiecrazy: We'll do it.

6162604 Yes! Knew that would catch everyone off guard.

The captain reached out and hugged the makeshift antennae to her chest for some form of comfort. "What happened after we took off?"


Favorite two lines of the chapter. What a lovely interface!

I have seen great premises before in these fictions, but execution has always been a little off. Now here I see a fantastic premise with carefully thought-out execution. The pacing is just slow enough to evoke the feeling of isolation and hopelessness that characterize the great void of space. Our character is an eccentric family mare with a healthy sense of determination.

It would be awful if we had to sit through breakdown after breakdown, but Andromeda manages to keep working toward returning home.

The messages were an ideal way to present the personalities of the Mane Six without resorting to exposition. The last message, in particular, was a stunning use of dialogue for building a bit of Andromeda's backstory.

The only problem I could think of at the moment was the interface itself. The pipbuck gives some funny lines (as quoted above), but it seems rather hostile for a soulless piece of technology. Even a blunt interface should not be responding with phrases like "ignoring denial." It more often broke my engagement with Andromeda's unfolding revelation than anything else.

6170254 We're so glad you took the time to critique this. It really means a lot.

We're trying to keep Andromeda from falling into the "woe-is-me" category of characters, while at the same time giving her scenarios that that she could have never prepared for and trying to match her reactions in a way a mare such as herself would react in a hostile environment that's totally alien to her.

As for the pipbuck. Your right, a soulless piece of technology shouldn't have those lines. But don't worry too much. We have a plans for it :pinkiecrazy:

Again, appreciate the critique.

She found out later that she came in second, and the only reason she was chosen was because the Ministries and Princess Luna didn't feel it a good idea to send up a six-year-old colt.

Yeah, who didn't see that coming? :rainbowlaugh:

That was... interesting. So, what... she'll be a Canterlot ghoul? A ghost like Puppysmiles? Or maybe, something completely different...

Welp. Onwards! :rainbowdetermined2:

Remarks and corrections:
> Little Bighorn
Just "Littlehorn", actually, in Fallout: Equestria
> the most advanced mainframe
Not "maneframe"? :rainbowwild:
> It was unbelievable what would get past quality control these days, the questions were simple enough as well.
The sentence before that one ends on a comma instead of a period. Also, the comma in this should actually be a semicolon.
> That earned her a few laughs
Missing period at the end.
> incase of megaspell bombs
"in case" is two words.
> the technology to held levitate objects?
I'm not sure what the word "held" is doing there.
> carry a several light objects
Remove "a".
> Switches, buttons, view screens attached to sensitive telescopes for precision aiming, little light, and it was all painted white.
Shouldn't that be "little lights"?
> a fishbowl helmet with an antennae atop of it
"antennae" is the plural. Should be "an antenna".
> The part about was that it was
That first piece seems like it should be "The [???] part about [it] was"
> connected direct to the mini mainframe
"[directly] to"

We're sorry it took so long to update. There were other priorities we had to take care of. We hope you enjoy. :twilightsmile:

A wonderful read, I can't wait for the rest.

Guy the golden foil on spacecraft isn't there for cosmic ray protection, you need an atmosphere and a magnet field for that, it's for heat mitigation. Gold has bad ass reflective qualities, to keep space things cool.

Spell Nexus? Just realized that's very... Past Sins-y of you to do. :trixieshiftright:

None the less, love it!

6344380 Was wondering when someone would recognize the name :scootangel:

While I was sort of disappointed that you gave her even more powers than Puppysmiles had, notably one which appears nowhere else in the Fallout Equestria mythos, I am at least amused by one thing. It appears to be a rough imitation of a Green lantern power ring, complete with Bobblehead malware.

As a side note, how do ponies recognize the cubes, if it can form, say, a sawblade. A sawblade needs to have a much higher fidelity than would be visible as cubes.

6392606 Well, we figured that she needed some extra powers since she was working for the Ministries' top secret facilities. Whereas Puppysmiles, as adorable and amazing as she is, was just a filly in an environment suit that was just supposed to help her stay alive. Andromeda was given a series of abilities to aid her while in such an unknown environment as space. As for some of her other powers, those will be explained at a later point.

As for the magic cubes, ponies would see them as being just that, cubes, but might overlook it by thinking it to be an aesthetic thing. And the cubes are not restricted to a strict grid formation, so all the corners could be aligned into a ring shape perfect for cutting. Or just stacked atop of each other to form a wall.

6392949 No, I mean that cubes large enough to be seen as cubes, unless they shapeshifted or something, would be unable to make anything non-pixalated. Like, if the cubes were any smaller than, say, a centemeter cubed, you wouldn't be able to reconize it as a cube from much more than point blank range, and if it weren't moving, but if it was larger than a centemeter, it wouldn't be able to make, say, a knife, or any other blade.

6392982 Oh, that's what you meant. Sorry.

The cubes are adjustable in size. She can make them quite small, allowing her to make more precise tools. But the structure becomes weaker the smaller they get. But she can use her own magic to help hold it together.

I hope that was more what you were asking.

all i have to say to that dude is what a wierdo

And, now on my new reads. Kind of glad she would probably never end up on the Marewaii islands. There's a space theme park there, with a Space Captain Andromeda ride. Also theres a Lurker Queen who is a Space Captain Andromeda geek living on the island.

6438502 Are you talking about your fallout stories? They're in our to-read list. Ought to get around to those at some point.

6438637 It's the same for me with a lot of story's. So much to read, so little time.

Did I miss something? How were they captured?

6470980 Don't worry, you didn't miss anything. It's going to be explained.

6471595 is it bad i had a real strange Rp session with someone playing an androidified dr atmo and me as a changeling herbalist with them 'collaborating' in using spectra to try to cure taint mutations, but my ling had no clue exactly what spectra was? Cause it's skewing my vision of the good mad doc in your fic here.

6471811 Yes. Seek an alternative cure source and then stab the doc in the back.

If you're against doing that, try stabbing him in the front.

Or, see if Pinkie needs help in the basement.

6471932 My Herbalist had 10 int, lck, and per. Mint-als had no effect on him (he has 2 str, end, and chr to compensate)


I have not read a single word of this story (yet), but I love that cover picture.
