The tale of the great war and its aftermath stretched across generations.

Be it from the harsh wartime era before the balefire struck, or from the two hundred years of wasteland that followed, there are many tales to be told. From the first shot of the war all the way to the activation of the Gardens of Equestria, countless stories played out.  Some were of mighty heroes saving the world, others were personal tales of struggle, never known to any but those who experienced them.

All can be told here, as we delve a little deeper into the world of Fallout: Equestria and track its history through the eyes of those who saw both Equestria's fall and those who saw its gradual rise to escape the 200 year long nightmare.

Story 1 - "For Want Of A Purpose" - Living in Tenpony is generally considered a paradise, especially if one has the wealth and influence of a family like Flintlock's. He wants for nothing; and yet despite this has nothing he wants. Something keeps him feeling unsettled and disconnected from the social circles at play within this sanctuary. At his wits end, he finds himself wondering just how to find a purpose, and in doing so a life worth living.

Loved it. I would like to here more of flintlock, where he goes, how he adjust to the wasteland.

There really aren't enough oneshots in the Fo:E universe. It's interesting to see new characters from Tenpony Tower - nice to see another one that doesn't have the snobby behaviour one would expect from the place.

Some weird phrases that you may want to look at:

It would be us to be seen doing it.

There's a lot of young colts and fillies in this tower do odd jobs for tips, Radiance.

That was a really sweet story. Well done. I'm surprised Flint didn't try to interview DJ Pon3 considering how "in the know" about the Wasteland he would seem to ponies living in Tenpony.

(I know the timeline doesn't quite work out, but I was really hoping that at some point in the story Radiance would complain that some runt had pickpocketed her. :twilightsheepish:)

Very nice story.:twilightsmile:

As good a story as it can make, there are too many FoE heroes who simply stumble into their adventures. Somepony like Flintlock who deliberately seeks the Wasteland out is very welcome -- not to mention how nicely fleshed out all the main characters here feel (Radiance reclaiming everything Flintlock purchased with the family accounts might be little more than an offhanded line, but it really gets across how she prioritizes family). The only problem is that there's not going to be more of a story following him. I don't suppose the game was recorded, or even summarized anywhere?

her horribly emancipated foreleg.

To have one's foreleg "emancipated" (liberated from) ones body would be horrible indeed!

However, I believe "emaciated" may be the word you intended.

I simply love this, this is the type of story I could spend anot her year reading Fuzzy. (If only I could write as well as you, you managed to flush out a character and make me fall into a trend of reading just to find out more, I still want to read more about him!)

Thoughts on this short story:

Seriously though, this was a nice little read after the madness that was MN7. Kind of like a little sundae after a large dinner.

Though I do hope Radiance gets a stain in her sundress that no amount of Abraxo could remove.

Very well done.  Please continue.  While I'd love to hear more of Flintlock's adventures, I'm sure there are a lot of other tales you'd like to tell as well.  I'll happily read them all.

Very nice! It never ceases to amaze me how well you manage to do characterization, even in a short story like this one. Everyone in your stories feels alive.

I agree wholeheartedly. One o' Fuzzy's most outstandin' traits as an author is to create well thought-out, relatable or likeable n' believable characters. Even through a significantly small amount of lines.

I definitely look forward t' readin' more o' these stories.
