Frost Windchill is known to be a storyteller of sorts. Comfortable with telling the occasional sprite tale or legend, a child approaches him one day and asks for a real story.

And so Frost tells one- the story of his life. It's not a typical story, and there's more to it- just as there's more to the descendant of a Lunar Guard. It's a story not just of himself but the heroes he stood beside- big and small, legendary and obscure. But there's something amiss, buried lies between the lines.

After all, it's hard to kill memories when you remember everything.

Personally, I've found it to be a great place! please check it out!

I am loving this one so far, keep it up. :pinkiesmile:

I am curious, how do you managed to write Russian lines?

122794 Can it be? Another comment at last? :pinkiehappy:

I think I might have gone a tad overboard on the gun detail in chapter five. It's good to see that you like it, but I think a few of my readers were a bit overwhelmed. And as soon as chapter seven comes out... XD

I'm very fortunate to have learned Dumka. It's by far the most difficult piece I've ever come to play, and though it's been about a year since I've last tried to play it, I felt it was appropriate after a harrowing night in the City of Blood and Iron.

Thank you for your feedback, Sapphire. It's much appreciated. :twilightsmile:

... well I'll definitely say he does have a certain flare with his ice magic. Yeesh...:twilightoops:

165086 New comment! :rainbowderp: --> :rainbowkiss:

Well, what did you expect, honestly? It's not like he wouldn't keep his word...

165111

Heh, with this story i don't really know what to expect, that's why it's good. Besides, this has a level of awesome akin to hellsing, so it's a really fun read, i just tend to have a rather strong imagination, which is good at times but others, well not in this case but i've been running low on brain bleach of late. :derpyderp2:

165263 Thank you kindly, though I honestly don't know much about Hellsing stuff... :twilightblush:

165358

not a problem, it's not a manga for everyone, OP vampires tearing it up against other OP vampires in england old school style. plenty of big guns too, case in point is a 30mm shoulder fired, breach loaded anti-freak cannon. just look up the harkonnen cannon, it's quite the weapon.

165371 Um... WOW. Really. I don't think I'm quite that over the top. o.o

...

Yet. :raritywink:

165459

well, FoE project horizons (i think) has that wonderful piece of gun that can essntially punch a hole through the moon from equestria so so long as it ain't used too often i don't mind a trump card :pinkiehappy:

177382 Which is yet another reason why you never, ever, ever, ever piss off Frost that badly.

"We've been comprimised! Game over, pony, GAME OVER!" :raritycry:

189490 I'll admit- I chuckled after reading this.

yaknow, frost takes things like that hunter unit kinda like i do...

although myresponse would be "Fuck... this is gonna get interesting fast."

190345 All the better for ze big action scene in chapter 10!

One more thing! I have an Ask Frost tumblr!

*smoke bomb*

............Wow that was...Unexpected

234219 A new commentator! :pinkiehappy:

Forgive me, but ah, what do you refer to? Lots of unexpected things happening in this chapter (guessing the bit about Rig). :twilightsheepish:

I could have sworn that i had commented before (•.°)
Anyways loving the story also the part with Rigs mechanical leg is really what stumped me...Hehe bad pun. Also if you ever need some help and im not busy with Fallout equestria misfits send me a message im always happy to help a fallout fan ^-^/)

234909 Thank you kindly. *grumbles something about possibly having broken up that chapter into two...*

Psychological warfare master? Ehhhh, maybe. Now, Azrael....

Again, thank you kindly. :twilightsmile:

241948 Something tells me you'd love Pink Eyes. SO MANY MEMES!

Probably just call it an ACOG. Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight seems descriptive enough, really. Personally, I thought the TF2 ref might be pushing the cheesiness boundary. ^^;

:pinkiegasp: wat. Really? I'm not sure I can live up to those characters.

Bit of both, honestly. And thank you for the longest comments I've received so far! :fluttercry:

249427 o rly? :derpytongue2:

249436 Can we settle with "Don't piss off Frost"? :rainbowlaugh:

Thank you kindly. I was actually a tad worried the chapter dragged on a bit long and had too much breadth. :twilightsheepish:

250341 when you minchend griffen cant see in robots :trixieshiftright: bit of a give away ta something:trollestia:

250509 Oh, you meant Azrael? Mmmmm, I guess. ::raritywink:

250519 eeyup and caps for dooing it in stile :twilightsmile:

Lovin' it so far especially the history bit. Always loved Russia.
Good choice on the music and honestly when I saw the name I instantly thought "Moonlight Sonata"
And I thought the name of the bar was "The Rusty Steed" but after Frost notices the piano he calls it "The Rusty Pelican".

256965 Thank you kindly, and... major derp on my part. *quickly goes to fix that*

259228 Thanks. That specific part of the chapter took quite a bit of work and I still don't think I quite nailed it. And I'm sure you can see some familiar phrases if you've played Bastion. :derpytongue2:

Oh...damn, that was intense. Murder the people who know who you truly are to save your friends from knowing too soon? Sorry, that last bit with Wendy and Miranda rubbed me the wrong way.
Great chapter as always.

The things some people do to keep secrets...sometimes is just a little too much.

Fallout: Equestria- Luck of the Draw

261012 That was the intended effect, so mission accomplished!

261085 Surprisingly, action's pretty hard for me nowadays; dialogue's easier. Even more surprisingly, it used to be the other way around with my previous stories. :trixieshiftright:

Also, I made a Portal reference somewhere? Jeez, it's only been a few weeks since I wrote the chapter and I'm already forgetting. :rainbowlaugh:

261127 "It's all secrets and lies with these ponies..." :pinkiecrazy:

Well, that's Frost for you.

...aaand now any sympathy I was able to have for the protagonist has been destroyed. Like, regardless of any other factors, I can't sympathize with him anymore because he's not a vigilante, he's just SCUM. Meaning it will be impossible to care what happens to him. Meaning the story will no longer be interesting. And it's been pretty great up til now, so that's really disappointing. :ajbemused:

261302

He did get instant karmaric justice for it though.

I know, Adder's got a way out with this, folks. Ya just got to stick with it. The dirt rat bas-I mean the author killed a little molly mule and defaced the statue of another, and I'm gonna stick around.

261302 Well, if that's how you feel, you're not going to like chapter 12 or 13 (depending on how long events draw out). I included the scene for the sake of a) sucker punching the reader, b) showing Frost isn't a pure "Very Good" karma Fallout type of character, c) his agenda differs from what the Rig, Azrael, and the reader might expect, and d) putting in a new reason to doubt the narrator (Frost, 40 years ahead). Buuuut again, nopony's forcing you to read this. I appreciate your sentiments for the chapter and the fact that you posted a comment on it in any case.

261385 Oh. OHHHHH! That! Yes, that was a Portal reference to the Curiosity Core. :rainbowlaugh: Ahh, wow, only a few weeks and I almost forgot about that...

And thanks for the comments again. :twilightsmile:

261955 Depends on what you see as a "way out of this." Next chapters are gonna get interesting for sure, though. Also, you actually commented here! :rainbowkiss:

...

And you're comment number 50! :pinkiegasp: Hail ze president!

262883

Savin' it all for number 50. :ajsmug:

Naw, I just don't comment if I haven't got something to say. And I said my piece when I edited. In this case, I had something to say. Heck, I was surprised and disturbed by the sudden plunge down the alignment chart. However, I figure yer a good enough writer to make us understand why. There's plain unlikeable characters that seem to do their atrocities it for the heck of it, and there's unlikeable characters that have reason for it. It might be good, it might be bad, but it's a reason. That's a tragic character. And I appreciate that sort.

262883
There's a difference between not being a pure Very Good karma character, and being someone that remorselessly shoots a woman and child so your friend can't catch you in a lie. One is relatable, while the other is most definitely not.

263600 I suppose, but then again we're talking about magical, pastel ponies in a post-apocalyptic magical world.

Now I want to see Luna's Fortitude. And Luna's Judgement. And whatever other weapons they are carrying.
Quick question are the weapons that are described based off of real weapons?
And DAMN is Frost sadistic.

264286 Yes they are. There really is a bullpup AK in real life, though it's manufactured by Century Arms instead of Izmash. Chapter 7 is more gun porn and goes into detail on them. :rainbowlaugh: Hm... should I try to draw them...?

If you think that's sadistic, you ain't seen nothing yet (DOUBLE NEGATIVE! :raritycry:).

And so I big a quick farewell and left, taking off for the Hammer and Horns.* bid
“Come on. Let's get out of this noisy place and let me me show you.”* remove a me
Adder you have done what no other FO:E side story has. You have the history part, the gun nut part and the music part of my mind going crazy.
Luckily it's not the Pinkamena kind so I don't mind. :pinkiehappy:
I shall continue to read with great enthusiasm. :twilightsmile:

Aaaaaaand there goes the gun nut in my head again. He joined Frost in that fangasm. So many beautiful sounding weapons. Wunderbar!!!:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

265921 *headdesks* Graah, and I didn't catch those when I combed the chapter over. @_@ The going crazy part is good though! Crazy (in this case) is always good!

Gruesome way to go, but I'll assume it's gonna get worse.
And I probably missed it but where'd the other balisong come from?

268283 Thank you kindly. And I wouldn't know about that, but if you find another story that's chock full of even more gun porn, let me know! :rainbowlaugh: And I guess you could definitely say that.

...

Okay, you really can say that. A lot.

268523 Mmmmmmmm... that depends on how imaginative/creative I can get.
