Forever Honor-bound, Forever Strong


Nova, a pegasus mare, was born and raised in a place of safety and security by a proud and noble family. Stable 181, a Stable dedicated to teaching and preserving the pre-war virtues known as the Elements of Harmony, allowed its residents to live a life of peace, knowledge, and honor. But when the Stable falls under attack by a raider war party, Nova and the remaining residents are cast out into the wasteland of the Equestrian southeast.

Without a home, Nova and her fellow survivors must band together to make a living out on the surface. They must start from scratch, find a new home, learn to trade and explore, and establish a foothold in the wastes. But during her efforts to help her people, Nova comes across strange recordings and artifacts pointing to a hidden pre-war nation. And when a mysterious pony calls upon her to discover what it is that the writings portray, Nova and her closest friends find themselves cast into a war fought to claim a legacy left behind by a secret pre-war society. Nova's quest leads her to test her heart against the unrelenting force of the wasteland, to discover the meaning of the word honor, and to seek out and unlock a concealed pre-war secret, revealing to Nova that she is a part of something greater than she could have ever imagined.

(This story is set twenty-five years before the adventures of Littlepip.)

Author's Notes:

This is my first attempt at a writing project for a community webpage. As such, I am using this as a way to try and gain constructive criticism to help improve my writing skills for a non-MLP novel I am trying to write. (A couple of positive remarks wouldn't hurt either though) My main problem with writing deals with the flow of events in a story. I consider this my weakest point. So again, my primary purpose in this is to try and get some help with my writing skill, but since I'm a brony, and I loved Kkat's original Fallout Equestria, I also wanted to try my hand at a side-story that people could enjoy reading should they have the time to kill. So this story is what comes from my efforts, and while I don't expect great things to happen, I hope that anyone who reads this will enjoy it.

Credit for the Cover Art goes to Talazar who you can find on Deviant-Art (Talazar) or Youtube (ShiniDeathGodReaper).

This story is inspired from Kkat's original Fallout Equestria as well as Bethesda's Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas games.

HNNNNGGG! RIGHT IN THE OCD!!!! Please, could you put ONE more word in chapter 2 before my disorder becomes the death of me?

Way to roar out of the gates with a significant amount of wordage. Unfortunately, I don't have time to jump in right now, but I will soon.

That said, after reading your comment, I thought I would take a moment to linky the Compilation Document and the Fallout Equestria Resource.

The compilation document is where I found a lot of support when I first started. The chat on the FoE Resource site is also full of writers and editors that like to hang out.

Welcome to the FoE Herd.

Your favorite insectoid abomination,

Mister Clacky

The numbers are so near perfect it hurts...
It's almost as though he's trolling us. :fluttercry:

902181 Ack! No trolling intended I promise!


No no, good sir, I jest. :moustache:

It's just with 1 and 4 words over a hundred, leading to 5 words total over a thousand, the rounding impulse in me just wants to cry. :raritydespair:

No pressure to change it though. It was just an observation.

902248 If its any consolation, the next couple of chapters dont have near-perfect word counts like Chapter 2. :pinkiesmile:

902296 Well dangnabbbit now y'all got me confused. :applejackconfused:

good story and sad you made me cry :twilightsmile:

902187 Hold on, lemme check....Yup, I don't have the urge to blow my laptop up :pinkiehappy:
Thank you.

907226 Well we definately can't have you blowing up expensive machinery. So you are most welcome my friend. :moustache:

Say me please Nova FF or not? I had give story fav and up anyway. It is easy for me to read if I will be prepared :pinkiehappy:

915452 I'm afraid I don't follow... "Say me please Nova FF or not?" Could you elaborate?:applejackconfused: I'm sorry, I just don't get what you're trying to say is all.

Fillyfooler(FF) = Lesbian = Female/female :pinkiehappy:

915602 Ohhhhhhhh gotcha. lol. No, I don't intend to make Nova a filly fooler. lol

I had read it and I like how you write, keep it up. :yay:

good chapter and Gunny? Really thats a US Marine name lol :twilightsmile:

926355 Exactly! Couldn't help myself. :eeyup:

954201 I thank ye friend. :pinkiesmile: I hope that they will all keep getting better as they come.

This is pretty good but something seems off with the paragraphs... can't work out what...:twilightsheepish:

960924 NOOOOOOO uber confusion :applejackconfused: I must be able to understand what you mean. :applejackconfused:

964105 "I see." said the blind pony. :coolphoto: It'll take some time, but there's going to be a bit of the mushy romance stuff in this fanfiction too. I mean come on, it's just got to happen. lol

Allo! Here be the next chapter! Just as a heads up, I switched the content rating of Fallout Equestria - The Code of Honor to mature due to the inclusion of more colorful language and scenes of gore. This is just me playing things safe so that I don't get yelled at. Nobody likes bein yelled at. So that's just a little message to keep y'all up to speed.

AAAAAND... Thankee for three hundred views! :pinkiehappy:

Woke up this mornin and did mah happy dance: assets0.ordienetworks.com/images/GifGuide/dancing/smith1.gif

Anyway, I hope y'all will keep on enjoying Nova's story as more chapters come out. Stay cool mares and gentlecolts! :coolphoto:

EDIT: Confound my constant second guessing! It drives me to second guess myself! I removed the mature tag, but I'll still keep this comment up as a warning about the use of language and scenes of gore. If I'm told to change it back to 'mature' then I'll do that no problem. But for now, I'll just keep stuff the same. Cheers.

And here we go with the next chapter! Aiming for weekly updates for now, but I don't know how long that'll last. Third year of college is coming up soon, so there will not be alot of freetime come the middle of August. But I shall carry on, all for those who have deemed this story worthy of reading. I thank you for over 500 views! I truly am honored!

I noticed the this still is not up on the FoE Side stories Compilation doc. With your permission, I'll add this to the doc for you. It really is surprising a side fic of this length hasn't been put on there already!

1026160 hehe... yeah that's cuz i don't know how to um... add it... :twilightblush:

No problem! Basically it's lots of copypasta with some Gdoc magic thrown in! Of course, you have to have edit privileges.... I think.... or something. Meh. I can add you, but I've no idea how to give you edit rights. If you go to the doc and click on the 6 people viewing tab, you can get in chat and ask for someone to add you to the editors list. Regardless, I need your express admission to add you to it... This might go faster if you get on the chat there :scootangel:

This deserves so many more views. You write very very well, better than most, better than me.

This is really great and I look forward to reading this when I have time.

1043714 While I appreciate your words my friend, I am perfectly content with having just broke six hundred views. :pinkiehappy: By the by, I'm glad you think this story is worth the time to read, and I hope that you'll follow Nova's road as new chapters arrive. I'll do my best to make the story worth your time. :rainbowdetermined2:

1073511 I thank you my friend. Glad you enjoyed it! :yay:

Ayep. Great chapter.
One thing in this 'hard scene'. When somebody you like going to die you not care about things like 'bullets must be removed first' and 'I dont know about medecine', its bullshit. You do everything what you can. Sometimes Nova's reactions on different situations in story looks strange, or unnatural. That's issue you must working more closely i think.
And keep it up. :pinkiehappy:

1079491 I see what you mean. Good point. Might go back and edit that scene to make it more believable and then keep in mind what you have said in furture chapters. I thank you for your input my friend, and I am glad you liked the chapter regardless of this mistake. :twilightsmile:

very good chapter this isnt the last is it? hope it isnt :twilightsmile:

1153975 Hell no sir!:rainbowdetermined2: :twilightsmile:

If you want, you could say that Chapter 8 was an ending to a first part, or the conclusion of the quest to "restore Hopeville" (hence the quest perk at the end of the chapter). And ctually, just to go ahead and say it, I plan for this fiction to be roughly twenty-five chapters in length. :eeyup: So nope, nowhere near the end yet. Nova has a long road ahead, and Chapter 9 is going to bring up a whole new scenario. Cheers.

Your fighting scenas are really good. I think you must add shouts from enemies here. They shout out insults? Write it please. They are ponies, not just enemies what can shoot. And, heh, in two camps are no single raider survivor? At least I belive some of them will be finded alive after this big fight. How honor will help, when you trying to decide how to make your enemy speak? :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

1155546 Hm... I suppose I could've been a little more aware of that, especially since I've had the raiders speak in previous chapters. :twilightsheepish: I'll be honest though, my focus during the previous two fights (the battles between Proudspire and the raider camps, and then Hopeville and the raider company) was set primarily on expressing the scope of the situation involving the raiders, expressing that the raiders weren't just a spontaneous band of thugs but in fact an army with some organized strategies and their own set of goals. However, you are right sir... I shall pay more focus to this detail in the future and I thank you for the constructive comment.:twilightsmile: :rainbowdetermined2: And just in case you're worried about it, I'll say NO, this isn't the last you've seen of the Black Blood Raiders. How does the term go... "You've only seen a fraction of the monster." lol something like that.

".30 caliber HMG"

When being spoken, the dot is often removed for this sort of thing. just a nit pick.

The idea of Heavy machine guns is that they cannot be used without a support crew and cannot be carried without being broken down. Even MMGs can't be used by a single person; they take one man to carry the gun, another the ammunition, and another the tripod.

Now, these being ponys, I can understand the argument that they can carry heavier weapons. Be careful though... why would they use a similar naming convention if that was the case? The idea is to convey to the reader what the weapon is, so you can argue it either way. Is the reader more likely to guess the gun's nature by size, or by definition? I would suggest calling it an LMG unless you want to go into more detail about it's nature.

1274111 hmm yes.

I remember that I had some difficulty in getting the facts right in this case. It was my intention of using the HMG classification in relation to the overall bulk and weight of the weapon. However as you have pointed out, and as I have seen upon looking back at a few specific paragraphs, my lack of details in this regard hasn't brought truth to my claim. I will definately go back and look through a few things and change them. Thank you for the feedback my friend. :twilightsmile::rainbowdetermined2:

damn your good at the action parts cant wait for more chapters

1315510 I am glad you think well of this story my friend. :twilightsmile: I am currently in the process of writing Chapter 9, but understandably, it's taking MUCH longer because of college. :fluttershysad: Either way, I'll do my best to make the story worth the favorite you gave. Cheers.


So, at long LONG last, here is the next chapter of The Code of Honor. This comment will explain everything that went on during the writing process as well as explain some things that this chapter involves (no spoilers I promise!)

1. This chapter took a long time to write solely because of my school workload. Despite popular belief, studying music and aiming to get a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree is not easy, and I have had a busy school schedule including three regular classes, four different ensembles, and three music lessons. My point in explaining this - if any of y’all find any inconsistencies or errors in the flow of the story, my schedule is what you should blame. However, please feel free to critique this chapter so that I may go through and improve things if need be. :twilightsmile:

2. OMG, this chapter is really long, and I understand entirely. With 40000+ words, this chapter is nearly double the length of the last one. It is my hope that this will not deter anyone from reading on. I have already sought an opinion and have pondered a course of action, and if this chapter deters people because of its length, I will still not chop it in half like I had originally planned. This chapter features multiple scenes, so it is divided into many sections. Get your bookmarks out people! Lol

3. As I continue to discover new buttons and gizmos on this site, I have added some links to music in this chapter. While I do intend to compose a few songs of my own for this story, these songs are the songs I listened to when writing specific scenes in the story and serve to bring out the emotions of the scenes they correspond to, so it is my hope that you will listen to them as well while you read.

This is the important information regarding chapter 9. I hope y’all will enjoy the chapter despite its absurd length. I think that this is the best one yet. Carry on my friends.:rainbowdetermined2:

So wait, a pegasus in a vault? Seems rather... odd to me. Unless there's a rather stellar explanation...?

1478661 There is a reason. In fact, you should be able to make a good guess as to why if you pay close enough attention to the details of the first chapter. That's all I'll say until it's explained more in the story. :twilightsmile:
