After a series of strange events following a firefight, Senior Airman Jack Beckett goes from the harsh and hostile mountains of Afghanistan to the lush and peaceful lands of Equestria. Stuck in a world with no need for a defender like him, Jack sees a chance to escape from the stresses of war while they try to find a way to send him back. But when a dangerous threat, both old and new, looms over country, Jack finds himself the only one capable of standing against it to protect his new friends.


I apologize in advance for slow updates, but this story is literally being written on location in Afghanistan during my deployment, so bear with me and don't hate me too much when some chapters don't come for weeks. As always, constructive critiques are encouraged and compliments will be met with thankful tears.

Fun story so far. I am mildly disappointed in Jack for commenting on how bad the situation is, though. That would earn him a good smack if someone else had been in the vehicle.

Great job! There was one typo I saw, 'The truck('s) armour plating' about halfway through. Utmost respect for a military brony, hopefully you won't end up on the receiving end of 6 pissed off insurgents with RPGs and a lack of virgins. Gonna follow this, I like where it's going :scootangel: Keep up the good work! :pinkiehappy:

Oh, and if you were looking for a background, may I suggest this? http://warnewsupdates.blogspot.co.uk/2011/07/camouflage-guru-guy-cramer-interviewed.html

I don't know the copyright restrictions on it, but it looks fitting. I would 'shop some ponies in for ya, but 1. I have almost no photoshop skill, and 2. I have no computer with me. Hope it helps though!

Not bad, and even if it's weeks between updates, I might forget about it, and get the pleasant surprise of a new chapter for a story I forgot about. Like that time I favorited a story, and it took 2 months for a chapter to come out, I saw it, and it was a pleasant surprise.

952108 Let me tell you something sierra_seven_, I spent the better part of an hour trying to find a cover picture and you just come waltzing along and slap the perfect picture on my desk. And here come the grateful tears I promised :raritycry: Really though thanks very much. And thank you everyone else for the faves and watches, I really appreciate it. :twilightsmile:

WOW this is great.

You sir have made a very entertaining story. Keep up the good work.

Damn boxor always there when u least expect him

boxor?:rainbowhuh:
BOXOR! :pinkiegasp:
The Fiend! I thought I defeated him in the Marshmallow Mines of Romulack 7!
No matter though, I shall find him and defeat him once more, and his army of Nergals :rainbowdetermined2:

Awesome chapter, mate! Can't wait for the next update!

I'm going to give this a read on a later date, but for now, allow me to say good luck and stay safe over there battle. Hooah:rainbowdetermined2:!

You sir, have been forbiden to die until this story is finished. I havn't read it yet but i figured being forbiden to die would help you stay out of trouble. Now i'm off to go think up a punishment if you somehow unforbiden yourself....unforbid.....unforbiden.......unforbendy........whatever, you know what i mean.

994853 I like it! :rainbowlaugh: Kind of like in WWII when bomber pilots would start a chess game before a mission so they would have to come back alive to finish it. Alright friend, your on. :rainbowdetermined2:

994908
That's perfect. Your punishment if you break your forbiden....ness, (yea i'll go with that) forbidenness, is lossing to a 16 year old in chess. Pawn to e3 my good man, you can make your move when you return to wright some more.

(Be warned though, i'm fourth board at my school out of 20 kids, i hope you know your way around a rook.)

Dude, lovin the story, and as a MP myself, brohoof. Now, don't you even think of Dis'in my Army again bub. Tango Mike

haha! Amazing story. as a recrut in miliatary school, i appriciate what your doing over there sir. cant wait for a new update. if i could i would salute you, but seeing as i cant, i guess i'll just have to pray that you'll keep safe over there. anyway, good job and keep up the good work!

996084 A fellow copper eh? Well it was all in good fun, but I'm sure you knew that. One force one fight as far as I'm concerned :rainbowdetermined2: Tango!

994936 It's been decided, you're going to destroy me. But I shall try nonetheless! :rainbowdetermined2: Look for my move next post! :moustache:

And lastly, I would like to thank anyone and everyone who's given my fic even just a chance. Seriously, I never thought it would even get this much attention and its a real moral booster to come off shift and see that even one more person has faved, liked, or even just read the story. But the best boost is by far your well wishes and kind words concerning my deployment. I appreciate every word of it. So thanks again! :twilightsmile:

984686 Fear not, for the Ice Cream Golems of Nebulan-Five shall assist you. We will flank him through the Kool-Aid river, whilst you attack from the Frozen Yogurt Mountains. :derpytongue2:

1017953
Huzzah! Then the day shall be ours! :pinkiehappy:
Boxor shall rue the day the he was even Born by the time we are done! :twilightangry2:
Now, WE RIDE! :rainbowdetermined2:

1018500 Onward brother, our victory awaits! *gallops away on twilight's back while holding a abnormally large candy-cane*:pinkiecrazy:

Uh oh, it looks like the insurgents found their way to Equestria. This could get really, really ugly.

1044380 Or it's Jack's team controlled by Discord, thinking the ponies are a threat. But that's just what I'm guessing.

1044380 Allah wishes the death of all pastel-coloured equines. Also, I can't help but imagine Derpy being chased through a field by a band of insurgents.

If you'll alow me to be frank there's one or two things i'd like to get across. Don't worry none of what i have to say is that bad.

I'm not usually one for stories in Equestria that involve...let's call them human flaws. Rape, murder, death of any kind, loss, war, political unrest, ect. ect. ect. usually turn me off from a story. But this was not the case here. I don't know how to describe it but i both like and dislike this peace for the same reasones. And i'm very torn as to what i can offer you in the form of constructive critisisem. Everything is so subjective in fim fic wrighting, and your own skills determain what you can do without being...i'll say trolled to put it nicely. This is something i'd like to make you awair of because your on thin ice. It is VERY and i do mean VERY thin ice here.

It is EXTREAMLY difficult to wright a good peace where humans kill, persecute, inslave, ect.ect. ponies because we are by nature very week creatures compaired to them. A unicorn, if they wanted to, could rip us apart. Twilight defeated an ursa minor, something it would take more then just a few tanks for us to neutralize. If one of these creatures could do that i'd hate to think what they could do to our miserably week forms. The fact that you are wrighting this from Afganastan has intreaged me to the point that i'll stick with this fic to the end no matter what. But be carefull how you resolve this...problem.

On a lighter note however, i await your move, you neglected to tell me your opening peice in our little chess game and i'd hate to think you would surender before we ever began. Is that what they teach our boys now.:trixieshiftright:

1048429 I understand completely where you're coming from and it was something that I considered. The conclusion I came to, for the context of this story at least, was this. Ponies have a large amount of experience with unconventional threats. Things like changelings, angry goddesses of the night, mad elder gods of chaos, fantastical animals and yadda yadda. All things that could be defeated by the Elements of Harmony or Love or other such things. But what they face now is an experienced combat team of [REDACTED]. It's a kind of fighting the ponies are not used to. As for Twilight taking on the Ursa Minor, that's more an exception to the rule. After all her skill is magic itself which would indeed make her a very powerful pony. That and she more outsmarted the Ursa than anything else.

That being said, I agree with you. I'm walking a very fine line as far as this narrative is concerned and I'm doing my best to keep everything in the green. I'm hoping the way it all plays out will make it a believable situation. Maybe a little Die Hardish, but believable.

Oh and pawn to b6. sorry for the wait old boy :moustache:

*reads last part*

SOI SOI SOI SOI SOI SOI SOI SIO SOI SOI SOI SOI SOI

I have been hoping to find an MLP fanfic involving a displaced MP as the main character, and you answered the call. :pinkiehappy:

As an Army MP myself, you done me proud. I know your character is an Air Force MP (or Security Force), but I congratulate you for making this story possible.

As a United States Airman, I am very proud to read this story.
ENGINEERS LEAD THE WAY!!! AIR POWER!!! HOOAH!!!

1044605 I concur with your observation. Seeing as how I have shot the M4 before, I can tell you that it is a very accurate rifle. And being an Airman, I can also tell you that we are excellent shots.

1430816 Military bronies for the win, good sir. I'm US army myself, MP.

1854391 Who is "they"? You're not one of "them" are you?! :pinkiegasp:

No far from "them actually", U.S. Young Marine at your service

Pretty good stuff so far. I like. Unless the story suddenly goes down the drain the next few chapters, I'm upvoting.

Totally upvoting this. Good work, dude.

I salute you man. Not many people have the guts to become a soldier. My dad is in the Coast Guard.

Is it bad if I laughed when I imagined some Johnny jihad trying to behead pinkie?

Twilight walked up, also very confused.  “Pinkie how did you know that?”
“It was easy silly!”  Pinkie replied.  “All I had to do was put two and two together to get seven!  Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a lotta work to do!”   :pinkiehappy:

I hope that this story gets updated soon i have really enjoyed it.

I apologize in advance for slow updates, but this story is literally being written on location in Afghanistan during my deployment, so bear with me and don't hate me too much when some chapters don't come for weeks.

Wow, you weren't kidding... Everything alright on your end?
