I'm British. I write crossovers with that horse show you people like. That's about it.

Princess Celestia and Princess Luna are loved by all citizens across Equestria. It is common knowledge that they are both over one thousand years old. However, no one really knows where they came from, or how they came to be. When the princess of the night notices a strange star in the night sky, all that starts to change.

With Equestria under threat from a powerful new enemy, Princess Celestia calls upon four warriors from an alternate universe; four warriors with a special talent. They are descendants of our world's First Civilization. When they arrive in Equestria, Twilight Sparkle soon finds out that they are not so different from the princesses after all.

Rated T for language and violence.

Interesting... I guess I'll keep watching, if only for my favorite badass grandpa.

ezio auditore da firenze WOO!

GAH! NEW INTERESTING STORY INTERESTS ME! MOAR!!! This is a great idea and I can't wait for the next chap! :twilightsmile:

... I do not know what to say to this.... ahem... FOR FUCK SAKE WRITE FASTER.... i mean.. if you want to that is...

I'll imagine them as humans.
Cause they're in all their killing glory as humans.

is the last one ummm Cole MacGrath?

725751 Eeyup, they are. But Cole was the only one to have his powers fully activated.

This is going to be awesome even if I never played RDR or uncharted. So far so good. Good thing is that the characters in your story and the ones in my story are completely different. Even though we have the same concept.

720630 so are the other 2 john marston from red dead redemption and Nathan Drake from the uncharted series?

That was a fun chapter. Interesting addition with the guns.

"candy store for adults" did you use that quote from one of the survivors in left 4 dead 2?

997698 Aw, ya got me. :pinkiehappy: Yeah, I thought Nate might have a similar reaction to Nick upon finding himself in a room full of heavy firepower.

I almost expect rainbow to reference darig do with drake around

Author's Note:

Oh, look at that, an Author's Note. That's new, haven't had that before.

So hopefully I will be able to start writing faster soon. I am infamous (in my own mind, anyway, and excuse the pun) for being a notorious procrastinator, and don't tend to release chapters for any of my fics on any kind of schedule. Hopefully that can all change.

The fight scene in this chapter was very fun to write. I have never actually written a fully fledged brawl scene before, so I'm not really sure how it turned out. Fun Fact: all the moves described in the fight scene are based on moves from each protagonist's respective game series.

Also my first use of YouTube links in stories, for ambient music. On my choice of song: since Equestria is already depicted as being immensely anachronistic (for example, Canterlot being a medieval city whilst Dodge Junction, which is mere miles away, being an Old Western frontier town) I've always liked the thought of its music style being reminiscent of Earth's circa the 40s and 50s.

And the fact that I've just finished Mafia II didn't govern my choice of song at all. No siree.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the chapter!

I almost expect Rainbow to mention daring do if she talks to Drake

Excuse me....I'm busy having a fangasam about how awesome this is. EEJHJEPHTPHEAIO;:rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss:

1202677 That's okay. One second. *speaks into microphone* Cleanup on aisle 3!

Author's Note:

Yay, faster update! :rainbowkiss:

Nothing much to say about this chapter really. Again, the fight was fun to write, and also shows us the beginning of Nathan Drake's tendency to getting thrown through windows.

Fun fact: Remedy, Braeburn's mother, was partially inspired by my own mother, who is a nurse herself.

Also, this isn't the only time you'll be seeing Strawberry Smiles. I considered changing her first name to Sunny, but I decided against it. And no, she does not have a dog named Cheyenne.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed the chapter!

Mad Dog ........ I did see what u did there dood :ajbemused:

I just thought of this: because this would be part of Ezio's life and possibly memories, Desmond must have one heck of a WTF moment.

1236399 I'm going to explain this in the same way they explained Ezio's appearance in Soul Calibur V. When Ezio goes to Equestria, he drops 'off the radar', so to speak, and Desmond is unable to access these particular memories.

1236967
Man... that would've been funny though. I know I'd buy that as a DLC. :rainbowlaugh:

Just the idea of an Old West cowboy meeting a 15th-16th century Assassin makes this have much potential for laughs.
662105 I believe I said something about this ten minutes ago. Protip, author: Don't clearly show the main characters as humans if they are going to be inexplicably transformed into another race at the start of chapter one. The other story had this as well, except it was with Noble Team. (Commander Shepard, for example, is always shown as human in cover art, trailers, what-have-you, and that's the only race we can play as in all three Mass Effect games.) The other story had the same problem, and I'm going to start disliking stories that show contradictory "title art", or whatever you call it. And I'm sure most of the fans of the series don't care what form they're in, but they do care if you set them up and change what you told them halfway through the beginning. If somebody already liked your story and changed their mind, they have to change it to a dislike, not a neutral rating, which may have happened at least once on this story.

You do notice that comment is from 14 weeks ago right

Come on Drake, it was a vision of the future if you fail. Also, nice use of Doc Mitchell line in Fallout New Vegas.

1374126 I like to sprinkle a few culture references throughout my stories. Glad you picked up on one.

Nate's cousins a bartender? i c wat u did thar:rainbowlaugh:

listened to this while they fought it was fucking amazing.

1419267 I admire your music taste.

"maybe today will be a quiet day" congratulations Nate you just jinxed it

Author's Note:

Yay, new chapter! Sorry about the long update wait, guys. I swear, sometimes I'm about as bad as Leonardo da Vinci when it comes to procrastination. :derpytongue2:

Anyway, the plot thickens! All the names Luna mentioned are protagonists in games and films, and (in the story's canon) have Assassin heritage. Who else do you think has First Civilization DNA?

I know the whole business with Salty seems a but non-sequitur, but believe me, it'll mean more in the future.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the chapter! :pinkiehappy:

I love this story.
So many cross overs.
Also idea to whomever
Adam Jenson+Corvo Attano in equestria think about it

1478357 Ah, as much as I'd love to have someone like Corvo in the story, I'm limited by really blatant alternate universes. There's no way the world of Dishonored could blend with and include the same timeline as the world of Assassin's Creed, because they're two very different universes. Imagine trying to crossover Fallout, set in a post-apocalyptic retro-futuristic 23rd century, and GTA, set in normal modern day America. They just couldn't run on the same timeline.

Well that was a quick side quest...

Anyways, where's Mills from? He's the only one I didn't get.

1478779 what about assassins creed's Desmond Miles? his ancestors were all assassins and maybe Hawke from dragon age?

1478779 and adam jensen is from Deus Ex Human Revolution its a pretty far into the future type of game and its enjoyable

1480322 Yes, but it would be impossible for me to say that the events of Dishonored and Deus Ex take place in the same continuity and timeline (like I've done here) since Dishonored does not take place on a normal Earth, or in a normal timeline. Deus Ex could blend with Assassin's Creed or Uncharted because it is quite possible to have the kind of technology we see in the game in about twenty years.

1479351 Bryan Mills, played by Liam Neeson in the movie Taken. You know, because he has a particular set of skills.

1481293
Ahh.... Of course!

I would've found it funny if Desmond Miles was included in that list. You included Kenway, so...

Ah yes, Cole answer to any medical problem. Got a broken bone, 15,000 volts of electricity. Bullet wounds, 15,000 volts of electricity. Scraped your knee, 15,000 volts of electricity.

1485718 Well, it's slightly more believable when it comes to cardiac arrest, since he's basically a walking defibrillator.
