Nearly two hundred years have passed since the war that ended civilization. Stable 115, located in the once vibrant prairie lands at the edge of Equestria, is home to a young unicorn mare and her precocious filly. Life in the Stable is about stability and routine, and mother and child find comfort from this monotonous existence in each other and their friends.

Life in the Stable is about to change...

Inspired by Fallout: Equestria by Kkat, and Fallout Equestria: Project Horizons by Somber. Author suggests having read Fallout: Equestria before venturing into this tale.

Update 11/04/2012: To prevent confusion, an explanation about how the chapters are named/numbered. I essentially have the story split into several acts--each act will have a named chapter that precedes the number chapters and are a somewhat separate tale, but will eventually tie into the main story. If I ever manage to finish this (or you figure it out way, WAY before then), then it will hopefully make sense.

Nice work!
One small thing though, you might want to put in a page break between shifts in perspective, just to make it easier to understand.

808148 Oop! Sorry about that! Potential weekend project! ^.~ I'm used to working with little to no formatting tools on ancient word processor programs from the mid-90s. I got into the habit of massive chunks of space between perspective/scene changes for the simple fact that I found it far easier and faster. Also might have something to do with that one-semester creative writing class I took in high school.

808026 The social recluse reluctantly accepts the invitation! :D He warns you, however, that participation in any conversations will likely be short and infrequent. He DOES work for a living.

:twilightoops: oshiiiiiiiiiiiiii! Must read next chaptar! Also... FIRST BUCKING POST.

Okay, *notbad* but I was hoping for moar :/ *reads on*

Emmm..... She have a foal, but anyway story like the most other going to “I don’t need a stallion in my life.” point. FoE stories are so predictable :rainbowlaugh:

832713 I wouldn't know about any of the others, because I've only read two. ;) As for this particular tale, it will take time before it really gets going. It may yet surprise you (or it may not).

Hehe okay, I am a one who had read not two, but all of FoE side stories. I REALY like to be surprised:pinkiegasp:

Your story need "comedy' tag, realy. Good chapter:pinkiehappy:

957463 I never thought to add the "comedy" tag, as I find humor in life to be a natural occurrence. And the humor should help balance out the darkness to come.
If anything, the story needs a pre-reader or an editor other than myself, as I've already spotted at least two mistakes and a word omission since I put this up last night. Alas, I have no friends and am a rather reclusive person, so I must take upon the duties myself. It might also help if I spent more than just a half hour on the task. >_>

Wow. I fuckin surprised. It is really well written. I like it.

1217081 It appears that I have surprised you after all. :) I hope I can continue to do so.

yay another chapter good one also

yay nice chapter. What can be more cute than mother's love toward her foal. :twilightsmile:

1496854
Kittens.
Or puppies, if you're a dog person.

good chapter again looking towards the next one with Star Shine :twilightsmile:

This mother/daughter pair won't be seen again for quite some time, unfortunately. I'm rather slow with my writing/typing. And I STILL haven't figured out a name for the mare! @.O

I must say it's unexpected chapter. I want to see where it's goes. :pinkiehappy:

Prologue and an intro? Well then.

Well, fuckin awesome! Noxious cat! :rainbowlaugh: Damn, life in stable can be not boring even without any invasion. And now shit hit the fan! Keep it up! I love your writting style. :twilightsheepish:

1941553 Yes, cats can be awesome in their own strange way. :D That particular part was based on a rather lucid dream I had the day before I started working on the chapter (I work graveyard shift and sleep during the day). It involved very similar circumstances on Christmas morning with this fifteen-pound beast of a Maine Coon cat we called Sparks when we first got him as a kitten on July 4th, 1996. He was doing the same thing in my dream--dashing around, annoying my family, pouncing on the shredded wrapping, but when he leapt off the couch and right into a box, all this wrapping paper just came poofing out and I wound up laughing....and that's when I woke up. Laughing. I burned the dream into my mind and typed down as many details as I could recall later to make use of it, and it turned into the scene that starts off Chapter 5.

Sadly, Sparks developed a terrible chest tumor, but cats are very skilled at hiding potential symptoms of diseases and medical problems--my guess is that it's an ingrained ability that allows them to continue hunting and moving about without giving away their position to either prey or other animals. We didn't even know anything was wrong with him until he started having trouble breathing and moving more than a few feet at a time. Before that, we chalked up his increasing sleep periods and lack of spunk to old age as his breed is known to live an average of twelve years. By the time the tumor developed to the point where he could no longer hide it, it was too late, and we were forced to put him down a week later on July 29th, 2008. It was a little difficult writing that scene, but at the same time it also reminded me of all the laughs and joy he brought us, and was somewhat therapeutic even after all this time. I'd long since dealt with it, but this still helped in some ways.

I miss that big, furry bastard.

Really looking towards the next, good chapter :yay:

Fuck.. Heh, awesome chapter. I never thoughts I will be sad, about her leaving from stable. :fluttershysad: Hm, still not get it, why anypony else tried to leave stable? :rainbowhuh: Fuck, it's unique story, it's needs more attention. :pinkiehappy: You made damn intresting story, using only character's development and radroaches. :rainbowlaugh: And now, we have wasteland to play. :twilightsheepish: Damn, poor Windy..:ajsleepy:

Wow this chapter was really good :yay: and what was that bear thing? Man bear pig? :trollestia:

Awesome chapter. Some raiders killing. Classic. :pinkiehappy: Funny to see El-tee trying to calm down her mother. Good filly. Hey, she is ten years old, and still do not know from where foals coming from? I just can't belive in that. :rainbowlaugh:
Great work, I love you writting style. Keep it up. :twilightsmile:

2248053

Don't feed the yao guai! :D

1863491 Do you mention this on every story with a prologue and an intro, Mr. Pleb?

oh this chapter was really good. And dead slaver always a good thing. Good chapter again :yay:

Damn, El-Tee are awesome! :pinkiehappy: Great chapter! :yay: A little melanholy in begining, but fuck, this written good. :rainbowkiss:
Shit, it's a one of best writed FoE stories, actually.

I will be watching you. Also, I'm open for pre-reading and editorial junk, so long as you're willing to return the favor (mine quit).

Oh I like this chapter and hopefully they get those collars off :yay:

2998606

Why the sad face? :(

3000044
when I read it I thaught all three kids died but obviously not :ajbemused:
p.s.
ive been really enjoying the story thus far, but in some sections the wording can make it confusing, and in others it just seem to take so long to read I just skip it(long and daunting but to an ok point)

Hilarious! Ha, Ada are awesome.
Damn I love this story. How somebody can find it even slightly confusing is beyond my understanding. It actually have it's own style. And fuck! It's third person.
Also. 10 mm auto is powerful ammo. it's almost two times more powerful than .45 acp and damn comparable with your ' holy .44 mag'. Glock 20 had been considered too powerful for usual operatives not just because. But somehow people think it's just as fuckin parabellum. But 1 mm cooler.

That has been something I've been trying to work on for years, with little success. In K-6 I was reading Michael Crichton's novels (heavens bless his departed soul) while most other kids were reading stuff slightly below their grade level. From junior high up to high school graduation it was Tom Clancy. Clancy's stuff in particular can be excessively lengthy (my paperback copy of Executive Orders numbers over 1300 pages!), and my childhood reading experiences have had a rather hard subconscious effect on my writing style. Old habits are just hard to shake. Hopefully at some point in this tale I can start weeding that out.

3005581
I see now, but if ya cant im willin to help with that process, just ask :moustache:

This is awesome. And to prove it here is a list.
accurate gun safety lessons that progress as well as can be expected.
a look into the mentality of the characters that doesn't involve mind magic and near death experiences.
stables being treated as actual places rather than mythological hellpits.
actual flaws in people that show in ways you dont notice on first run.
accurate ballistics.
accurate wounding.
immaculate story progression.
world building.
off the wall names that are just too good to not like.
a little prereading and this stands to push the original so it may equal it... Also we need to get word of mouth around so you can get the reads you need.

You aren't the first to mention the idea of pre-readers to me. Hell, I've even wondered about it at one point or another. Unfortunately, any potential pre-readers that would be willing to assist with the project would be frustrated by my glacial pace of writing and understandably quit on me within a month. If I can concentrate and get in the right frame of mind, I can pump out 8,000 to 10,000 words on a chapter per sitting, but I find that difficult to achieve. Music seems to help a great deal--just this morning I had the soundtrack for Aliens going on via a Youtube video (I've never been able to find it on CD), as well as the combined soundtrack for the first two Fallout games when my ears tired of James Horner's work, and got the majority of chapter 10 typed out. And sometimes my own life can be a decent source of inspiration--the start of chapter 5 was directly influenced by a very weird dream I had about an old family cat (in fact, I think I explained it in a previous reply on this comment page months ago).

The word of mouth, thing, on the other hand....I'm not quite sure how to approach that, or even make it work. I've never been very good at advertising myself or showing off, it's just not what I do. I prefer to just hammer the stuff out, and let the world judge it without my outside influence (this may be a mistake).

I will be your prereader. And I won't ever quit. Quitting is the sign of a weak mind.

Wow that poor mare she got tortured by raiders for that long :fluttercry:. Though I hope they find a way to get those marks off their neck but at least they got them off, good chapter again :yay:

Finally! I read it! Awesome! No mare's land. It would be cool to go there. :pinkiecrazy:
And I know how to feed that two little dogs. Pony meat! A lot of it around. :scootangel:

I'm still sorta trying to get over am entire stable that is just dead now. I mean fuck I was thinking the door gets stuck open and that's it... I'm sorta in shock and I'm totally floored by how much more openly brutal and dead this wasteland is as compared to Equestria proper. I am beginning writing a story and people just keep me going forward. I want it perfect so that I can share it in confidence.

*Logs on* Hmm lets see whats here.
Oh look a fallout equestria story updated.
Reads.
Oh. Oh dear.
This story is so good. Like filled with the problems of life and the wastes so I love it when the story makes you feel like you are invested in the lives of the characters.
Keep up the good work.
