The friend I have is better than I ever could've hoped for.


Behind-the-scenes progress: 11.43% (more information here).

For info on the hiatus, see this blog post.

The Lone Wanderer. Defender of the Capital Wasteland for 17 years.

He's accomplished many things in that time. He's removed the Enclave from the D.C. area, and taken down numerous other threats. He's activated Project Purity, bringing clean water to all the denizens of the Wasteland. He's almost completely explored the former capital of the United States.

During an exploration of the Arlington Library, however, he comes across something he could never have prepared for: a light blue, rainbow-maned pegasus.

I was given permission to remake Rainbow In The Wastes by the original author, re- Punished Yamsmos. Go check out his stories!

This story was in the "Popular Stories" section for most of 5/19/2017, and for that you have my utmost thanks!

How do I know this story won't be cancelled too?

8176352 I have no plans to cancel this story. While production may be a bit slow as I find the pace that works for me, I will continue to put out chapters until the story is complete.

Thank you for the comment and favorite! :twilightsmile:

I can't wait to read more! Awesome story!

y'know at first i thought this would be like one of tatsorous stories
but it seems i was wrong any ways great start and can't wait for more

8176550 of course and going off someone's story maybe a good way to see how you like writing

Will there be romance in this story?

8176692 It's entirely possible. However, I don't have anything planned in that regard yet. :pinkiesmile:

Edit: I completely forgot about something I prepared beforehand. :facehoof:

To correctly answer your question: yes, there will be romance in this story. However, it will not be between Rainbow Dash and the Lone Wanderer. Sorry for the mix-up. :twilightsheepish:

This screams Tale of Two Wastelands already.

8177591 I haven't actually used that mod before! :rainbowlaugh:

Although Carter and the Courier are two separate characters in this story, we will be seeing more of the Mojave Wasteland in the future...

8177667 It had to be Tale of Two Wastelands after the Lone Wanderer mentioned Turbo.

8177689 Oh, I know what TTW is; I just meant I haven't used it while playing. :twilightsmile: I actually forgot about it until you mentioned it!

Yeah, I actually referenced Turbo before I remembered that it doesn't exist in Fallout 3. So, based on plans I have for the story, I came up with some convoluted way to mention it and the Mojave. :twilightsheepish:

Wow! :pinkiegasp: Thanks for publishing the next chapter so quickly! I had figured I'd need to reread the first chapter in order to remember what was going on, but it was still fresh. I'm excited for the next installment! :heart: :pinkiehappy:

Haven't read a Fallout fic in a while, then I found this and was hooked.

Love it! It sucks me in and I feel like I'm there. :coolphoto: After you publish the next chapter, I'm going to re-read from the beginning. Great job! Thanks for writing!

is it bad i want a carter-dash ship?:twilightsheepish:

I f i didn't read a similar story like this already, i would of thought the original author already finished that story

8182444 What story did you read that was similar to this one?

(If I've misunderstood your comment, please let me know! :twilightsheepish:)

8182444 Nope! I put it on hiatus because I had to tend to other stories for awhile, but then I lost some respect on people who inspired me to write it and said screw it. Plus, it was just a huge mess anyway! :derpytongue2:

Anyone else reading this, don't bother looking at the original! It is not a good story by any definition! :rainbowlaugh:

Its called A Pony In The Wasteland by FireRain

Moria is going to freak when she sees Rainbow Dash, and it will be awesome.

Moira freaked out, and it was awesome. :rainbowlaugh:

Gahhh! I'm on the edge of my seat! :pinkiegasp: Rainbow Dash! NOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!! :fluttershysad:

How long have the Lone Wanderer and Moira been married?

8206975 For about eight years.

They actually married on the anniversary of the day Carter left the Vault (and, by extension, the day they first met), August 17.

8206990 There's a mod that will let you have Moira as a companion and eventual spouse. It's called Craterside Enterprises. Oh yeah, I finally got Fallout 3 to work again by switching to the vanilla profile (I use Nexus Mod Manager) to test everything and going back to my modded profile to play the game. I haven't finished Broken Steel or Point Lookout, by the way. My least favorite is the Pitt because I hate raiders and Wernher. On the other hand, Mothership Zeta's my favorite because it's funny and you get what is esssentially the most powerful energy weapon in the game. Shame that the ammo for it is rare and that's if you're not using the weapon at all. It also has F03's equivalent of weapon repair kits. Finally, my favorite energy weapon is the gauss rifle, seeing as it has the range of a sniper rifle and the power of a combat shotgun.

8207027 Wow, that's really cool! If I'm able to get Fallout 3 working, I'll definitely make sure to use that mod. Thanks for letting me know about it! :twilightsmile:

8207059 Well, seeing as you lurve Moira, I wanted to tell you about the mod. How hard is it to write a Fallout crossover?

8207086 Honestly, it depends on how well you know the material.

For instance, I haven't played much of Fallout 3 (main game or DLC), but I know enough about it to be able to write what I think would happen after a time skip. My lack of knowledge is also why I'll be moving it over to the Mojave; I actually have New Vegas and all its DLC, so I'll be able to better describe the stuff that's going on, or at least have an easier time doing so.

On the Friendship is Magic side of things, I've only watched about halfway through Season 5, so my "version" of Rainbow Dash probably isn't up to date with her characterization in the show itself. I'm doing the best I can with limited knowledge, as with Fallout 3.

8207105 You know more about the Mojave Wasteland, don't you?

8207143 A lot more! :rainbowlaugh:

I guess you could consider this part that takes place in the Capital Wasteland to be the prologue, with the main plot kicking off once Carter and Dash get to the Mojave. I won't go into any more detail than that, though; I don't want to spoil the story! :raritywink:

8207156 That's fair. The only reason I can't play Tale of Two Wastelands on my laptop is because it's demanding as hell and it's a pain in the neck to install.

8207163 Yeah, I read through the Tale of Two Wastelands FAQ, and it definitely sounds like it. :applejackconfused:

Y'know, a Legion-controlled Mojave with a female Courier won't end well. I'm pretty sure one of 'em will be screwed over at some point. Anyone who's played Fallout NV knows how the Legion treats their women. I'd sooner choose the NCR than side with those slaver-rapists.

8224903 Oh, don't worry. That will definitely be important when we get over there. :ajsmug:

and that is if you do not add the mods Sexout and other naughty ones that expand of the legion

Wait, WHAT? What's the Legion doing here?

Nothing good if personal experience is anything to go by.

Somepony has been playing story of two wastes

Just new vegas, but the Legion has proven to be asses whenever I see them. Remember Nipton?

This wont end well for someone.

I only did three runs of NV, one speedrun survival mode where I chose Yes Man, one good run where i chose NCR and one evil run where I chose legion
