Equestria is less than a memory here. There is no magic, only enormous overpopulated Gigapoleis and miracles of genetic engineering. Living creatures are being constructed and programmed, shaped and modified, enslaved and abused. This is Earth. The indifference of its people is surpassed only by their greed and cruelty. Their kindness, honesty, loyalty, and generosity are too often just words. Their laughter too often means someone’s suffering.

But while friendship stands, any evil can be brought down, right? Right?


This work is a translation of a story "Сломанная Игрушка".

Let it begins YAY!

excellent :)

What is the finest peace of shit.

Программа освоения дальнего зарубежья начата =)
Remember this day. That is one small step for a brony, but a giant leap for fandom

Unfortunately, we can`t deliver moar less than in a month, as russian→english translation is a rather tough thing to do for non-native english speakers like us.
Still, we do have editors on our side whose first language is english, who proofread everything before it gets here.

7131865 Где-то я уже слышал?

Probably not soon see.

7132941 Эм-м... В чём ты видишь шутку?

7132829
To be even more exact, it's not the translation and editing that takes the most time, it's the audiobook. Yes, we release audiobook chapter as well. Here's the link

But yeah, we'll do our best to deliver a steady stream of chapters once a month at the very least.

Мне нравится эта история , и я понимаю, если он принимает зубец:pinkiecrazy:

7132947 это Нейл Хуфстронг делится впечатлениями после высадки на Луну

7132993 Ну не знаю. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Люди бы не поняли, если увидели название фика "YAY"

This might be an issue:

Can ya stop hooping around and come here, please?!” the man yelled.

What is hooping around?

Kudos.

7133428
It is actually a reference. And the more appropriate verb here would be "to writhe", not "to hop", as you might think. If you've ever played twister, you know what I'm talking about.

7134219
You're most welcome. How do you like the story so far?

7134231
Evidently, there`s just not enough text to draw opinions.

I'm tracking the story so I get notified when new chapters come out.
I want to read more.

I do have a question.
Apologies, if I sound hostile.
I don't mean it.

There seems to be a lot of back and forward on Prologues.
Some writers don't use them and others do.
I've switched back and forward on using Prologues too.

I wonder if the info in the prologue could have been dribbled into the story.
You could have started with the main char immediately, and drawn in the readers instead of an info dump then we meet the main char. Why did you or the writers decide to have the prologue?

Again, I'm being curious and not judging.

7134961
Now, I reckon the author wanted to set the stage first, so to say. That is, explain the basics of the story world without having lots of exposition in the main part (the chapters) devoted to it. So, in the future chapters showing something complex about the world would be easier for the reader, because they already know what makes the world go 'round.

I hope I don't sound too confusing.

I've just read Russian version of the story, and i must say it's very VERY good!
Such a dark cyberpunk alike the best of conversion bureau stories, action-packed and intriguing.
Have a like in advance!

What's with all of the disliked comments? Will Rainbow Dash be beating anybody up in this story? Will she be reaching Unstoppable Rage levels of anger? Will she be giving out any No Holds Barred Beatdowns?

What's with all of the disliked comments?

I have three guesses:
1) Tags: the story is hard to tag, since it starts off nice and cute and then goes darker or lighter like a sine wave. Also, the [sex] tag is not a sign of explicit content here. There will be mentions and references, but nothing explicit. Ergo, some folks may be unhappy.
2) The story has a huge fanbase in Russia. The same's true for its haters. Part of the dislikes are surely their doing.
3) Slow-ish pace: the story does not introduce all major characters right from the get-go. Say, Lyra is introduced only in Chapter 2, while Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo are introduced a couple chapters later (so have patience).

Will Rainbow Dash be beating anybody up in this story?

Yes.

Will she be reaching Unstoppable Rage levels of anger? Will she be giving out any No Holds Barred Beatdowns?

She will, so to say, lose her shit, yes. But I'm not sure if that scene is that trope-y.

Like, Favorite and tracking.

This story has a nice concept, a god pacing (IMO) and while it needs some spelling check, I think it has enough consistency to be read by anyone (English isn't my native language and I can read fine, but I hope those proofreaders help you a lot).

As someone who doesn't live in Europe (Latin America), I can see how this can go differently in other continents (almost), which incentivize the possibility of increasing this worldbuilding, another plus for me.

I really hope you manage to translate and send here more chapters because this has some good potential.

7403269 thanks for the kind feedback.

Yes, our editors do help us a lot. Without them, the translation would be.. less readable, to say the least. But alas, we do need more spelling checks to catch all of 'em typos (just like pokemon).

In the coming months we're planning to pick up the pace and release more chapters, since it's finally summer break (for me at least) and we'll be able to devote more time to the project. So stay tuned! The further you read, the better it gets.

Oh, and every chapter will certainly be accompanied by the amazing art you see in the published chapters. Also, we're working on The Broken Toy audiobook (can be found here)

Thanks again for taking your time reading our work. We're happy you like it.

No dislikes, this is so far an awesome story, and just begin, i wonder where it'll take off! Keep up the good work with the translation :derpytongue2:

Also i wonder, will we see a Blackjack, maybe? She's the best wastelander pon =P

7404101 I'm glad you like it. The further it progresses, the better it gets.

So you want to see a wastelander pony here, huh? I don't recall a Blackjack in the story, but... well, not gonna spoil it.

P.S. Blackjack is pretty awesome. But I'm more into Rampage now. And Boo is the best wastelander pony

7404183

She was mentioned at the catalogue part with Little Pip as well, a Blackjack be awesome, personal security mare ( and she does like the more adult activities lol ). As for Rampage, well if want a pony killing machine on the loose, after your enemies, sure XD

The original has "Characters death" tag. Doesn't the translation need "Tragedy" tag?

7404404 I'd rather get Boo - the luckiest pony out there

7404963 don't "Drama" and "Dark" already cover it?

Most important quastion of it all, when is the next chapter? :pinkiehappy:
And Boo is awesome too XD

7406868 We've already begun working on the next chapter, but I'm not giving any release dates. It's gonna be released when it's ready. Some things can't be rushed.

But if everything goes as planned, it's gonna come out soon. Stay tuned! :twilightsmile:

you all surprise me... How can you miss Puppysmile as best wasteland pony also Blackjack is a pony you drink with.

7407409 Alright, so, Puppysmiles is the cutest foal in the Wasteland, Blackjack's the best drinking buddy and Littlepip is... well, Littlepip.

7408036 Puppysmiles also has her Rock lol and Blackjack is queen of WhiskeyThat flies on alicorns lol. and lilpip is um sunshine and rainbows

7408247 Pretty much sums them up

Blackjack special talent is Victory, she's the best :derpytongue2:

And more! so very low on good chapters atm from other stories :raritydespair: it makes one go insane :pinkiecrazy:

7412003 Summertime has its ups and downs. Including faster chapter translation (hopefully).

Stop posting this piece of garbage.

Ignore sour flank, more chapters plz! :twilightsmile:

Update? :fluttercry:
We're starving for more chapters :twilightsmile:

7518625 We're working on them, although I'm sick atm (thank you, Poland, you're such a hospitable country :twilightsmile:) and the other translator has real life to worry about.

Sorry we're not working as fast as you and us both would like to =(

*turns light off*
*turns it on again*

Erin ‘Sunflower’ Olsen

This is wrong on so many levels. :rainbowlaugh:

I'm glad that translation from pidorashqas language to Human language of this piece of trash died.

VVB

Continue the translation, please! This story is great, it must be translated!
