"The changeling looked at the foal much like a space explorer would look at an alien life form. He resisted the urge to prod it." - Flitter



This story is a sequel to Fallout Equestria: The Daily Unlife

It has been over a year since Lemon Frisk first dove into the ruins of Whinnyapolis and decided to call them his home. In fact, it has been exactly one year since he spent his first Hearts and Hooves day with Misty Cloud there, and was forced to realize that despite everything, the day still made him feel miserable.

So this year, he won't spend Hearts and Hooves day with Misty. He'll spend it with someone he should've visited a long time ago.

Written for the Fallout: Equestria group's collab of February 2016... which more or less means it can be read as stand-alone story :raritywink:

Nope, sorry, no actual sequel to TDU. But hey, it's something, right?

And if you want more of Misty and Lemon, they also appear in the short story Day of Cabbages and Turnips.

Zoom! Who cares! Thank you for the addition.

You're welcome :twilightsmile:

"a corpse molten into a wall"

Three? Hm. Including Misty?

A nice story, I found this. :)


"a corpse molten into a wall"

Heh. Every time someone brings that up I intend to finally look it up, and I never got around to it. But yeah, you're right. It's apparently "melted", and "molten" is mostly just used as adjective for the material state :ajsleepy:

Three? Hm. Including Misty?

This actually relates to a deleted scene from the original story. In the end I never brought it up, I think. "When he is ready to move on" is indeed most likely when Misty dies. The Petal Luck scene in the original story (Day Seven) shows he's quite "pro-choice" when it comes to ghouls choosing the end of their unnatural lifespan.

A nice story, I found this. :)

Thank you! :twilightsmile:

Heh, no problem. :)

Ah, thanks for the clarification.

Your book has been advertised on the new facebook group page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/foebooks/ :)

This made me think of this...

Bet Lemon wishes he could get drunk:fluttercry:

That story would be rather unfair if the ghoul in question can't actually get drunk :rainbowlaugh:

Well this was nice
Also I was wondering while reading the main story just what was his reaction to canterlot getting decimated by the enclave

Well, I guess Day of Cabbages and Turnips shows that it certainly didn't improve his views on pegasi :rainbowwild:

Though, overall... he was done with the place. He knew it was a poisonous hellhole unsuitable for normal life, and he had said his goodbyes there, so besides mourning the loss of the casual acquaintances he had there in the Stable, and the general fact that one of the staples of Old Equestria was now gone forever, I don't think it would've really hit him that hard.

Buoyant Waves wasn't in the city when it went down, by the way. He's still trekking around, singing the ballads of the ghouls to anyone who wants to hear them.

Hmm... Yes that does sound fitting for him

Also I liked the fact of him having a little guardian spook

This was really, really sweet and touching, with just the touch of bitterness to it that just makes the feels cocktail that much stronger. Really, really well done little tail. And nice little Pinkeyes reference too.

Thanks! Nice to see you digging into my remaining FO:E stories :yay:

I had actually read it a while ago, but I read fics mostly at work on my Kindle, and got WAAAAAAAY behind on updating fimfiction on what I've read. Been going through my read later list and correcting some of the backlog.

I was poking through your stories (recently finished Nope) and saw the title of this story. I can't help but throw this song out for your amusement (or not).

Hah! I honestly didn't know it had already been done when I made this title :rainbowlaugh:

If you've only just been poking through my stories, though, it might be advised to read The Daily Unlife before tackling this one. I've been told by my readers that it's quite universally accessible, for a Fallout: Equestria spinoff :twilightsmile:

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll think about it. I admit that I tried to read Fallout Equestria at some point (got through 10 or 20 chapters) and it just didn't appeal to me. I know a lot of people enjoy it and I'm glad they enjoy it. :twilightsmile: I have made a point of looking up a wiki about it so I know what happened and the basic characters because I dislike being completely ignorant of popular things.

Well, The Daily Unlife is, at its core, a comedy fic, and even though there's a lot of sadness from the past that pops up in the story, the general tone is a lot more upbeat than Fallout Equestria itself.

Heck, the fic literally started from a small piece I wrote that parodied the classic "pony leaving safety of the Stable" scene used in FO:E and far too many of its spinoffs.
