A Twilight Sparkle fanboy who also likes to write. The author of the Change series.

One small change can alter everything you know. One small change, no matter how seemingly insignificant, can change the entire course of history for the better or worse.

Enter Maripony, the Enclave soaring overhead as a monstrous entity screams its death throes, it and the Enclave force annihilated by the Stable Dweller. Very few Enclave escaped that day and lived to see their final fall.

But what if a single officer, in another timeline, had their sky carriage malfunction, thus causing them to miss the departure? Small, insignificant. An officer who had very little to add to the story of the Lightbringer, who was to die a meaningless death in a balefire blast. But if they survived...?

War Never Changes. But the world has.

And Littlepip is dead.

A collaboration with Twilight is the BEST and BioQuillFiction.

I usually don't read FO:E fics other than the original, but decided to check this one out because of that art. Really glad I did, because this is the best fic I've read in a while. Genuinely feels like the original while keeping freshness to it. Looking forward to more!

Oh man, looks pretty good so far. But holy crap, that cover art, scared the heck out of me.

Footnote: Game Over.

Start new game?
Yes/No

YES Very Yes, I am Really Enjoying the Idea of this Story, I hope this Story will Continue :3

Also that Cover Art Seems abit Intense For the feel of this Story

Confident that I had, if not everything I needed, but everything I could take from here, I turned back around again. I then took one last breath of the musty air in my chamber, and then I stepped out into the unknown.

Once more unto the unknown, Littlepip.

The next question is, what will drive you next?

I think you mean Xena. That's her name. Xenith is Pip's old friend.

And yes, it's her.

9450918
Oh right Xena. There’s too many zebra characters that has a z sound in their name.

Damn man , you getting these out fast.

Chapters 1-6 were written before publishing. After next week there's gonna be quite the gap between updates.

I'm getting a MGS: Phantom Pain vibe from this...

Me neither, but from what I understand there's a plot twist that the player character, Venom Snake, was actually a medic caught in the same explosion that injured the real Snake. While in the coma, they performed plastic surgery and hypnotherapy on him to turn him into a decoy/body double. He woke up from the coma years later looking like and believing he's actually Snake.

The scene outside the wall with the Enclave executing the wastelanders was intense. Littlepip had never once been able to turn her back on innocent ponies in need, so putting her in a position to either starting a fight she had no chance of winning or simply walking away from the atrocity was pretty brutal, and I was glad the Resistance intervened to save her from making that terrible choice.

The majority of Littlepip's inner thoughts and narrations closely resembles the original in tone and style that there are moments when I forget I'm not reading the original, however the chapter's dialogues can feel a bit weak and expository at times.

Finally there are some minor nitpicks where certain elements doesn't quite match the original. If these are intended divergences for the AU then please ignore them:

This, however, was nothing like my first venture into the Wasteland all those years ago.

Nothing save for the barren, dusty wasteland I had come to call my home throughout recent years

While there is no precise timeline, most estimate that Littlepip's adventure happened over the span of several months, certainly no more than a year.

“You’re my hero, Miss.”

I stood there for a time. Hero… Forty years, at least that hasn't changed about me.

Littlepip had always believed that she's undeserving of the titles other ponies had bestowed her. I think it's more likely for her to mentally comment on how that is something that's remained unchanged in forty years.

Granted, I didn’t have the slightest idea of where that was -or where I was to begin with- but if that pony was right and that… PegWing had something like a GPS integrated, I could simply let it guide me there.

The mapping function of the pipbuck was ever only described as a 'spell' in the main fic, and it's used to handwave away how the pipbuck have markers for locations that didn't exist pre-war.

I'm glad you enjoy it. I sometimes worry I'm not doing Pip's inner characterisation justice, so to know I'm not so far off is gratifying. :twilightsmile:

As for those nitpicks, I have explanations...

While there is no precise timeline, most estimate that Littlepip's adventure happened over the span of several months, certainly no more than a year.

Her journey was two months before the Goddess died, then ten days after that until the SPP. The 'years' comments are due to the fact that, by this point, those events were forty years ago. She's in the future, remember?

True. But here she's more referring to how others perceive her.

The PipBuck does use magic in its functions it is true, but so does most equivalent Equestrian tech to ours. The PipBuck also gets its info by accessing any and all computer terminals it can in a significant radius for geographical information to constantly update itself. The spell is intricate, but it does act as a bit of a GPS.

Thanks for replying and addressing my concerns.

She's in the future, remember?

Considering her just-defrosted state, I wasn't sure whether that fact had fully sunk in for her when she made that statement. From her perspective, it had only been months after all. But if she had taken the forty years into account, the second quote "throughout recent years" probably isn't entirely accurate either.

But here she's more referring to how others perceive her.

Yes, you're right. It seems I may have misinterpreted that.

The spell is intricate, but it does act as a bit of a GPS.

No issue from me there, I just wanted to point out that the term 'GPS' wasn't used in the main fic and may seem a bit anachronistic for the world of FOE.

Edit: arrrgh! posted the comment to the wrong chapter, why do I keep doing this?!

Edit: arrrgh! posted the comment to the wrong chapter, why do I keep doing this?!

If you reply to a comment on the main story page, it will appear in the comments of the most recently released chapter. In this case, 'The Factory'.

Well then. This chapter was a rollercoaster. Can't wait to see the rest -Though I wonder. Doesn't this future Enclave have access to their own PegWings, and thus access to their version of SATS?, and other death-tools and whatnot? It'd be very silly from their part to have so many shiny toys but never using them when they need to.
(Excluding of course the one they used on this chapter. Props for that!)

As soon as I finished chapter 6, chapter 7 is uploaded. Now that is good timing. Anyways keep up the good work.

Sweet, a new chapter!

The Nazi Germany vibe is strong here.

Hey tom117z, just wanted to know if this was a sequel story for the original Fallout Equestria and FE: Project Horizons or if its just an alternate sequel story following the same timeline, just curious cause i read through both stories and Project Horizons ended differently based on Morning Glory being dead, but in this story she's alive; love your stories by the way, awesome job

Uh... the whole premise is that the timeline diverges at the Battle of New Appleoosa in the original, because the Enclave won. As a result, things happened very differently from that point on, Morning Glory never made it to the point of her death in PH, Blackjack was seemingly lost in the Hoofington Core alongside Boo when the Enclave brought the city crashing down. Cognitum is buried beneath the rubble, as is the Eater of Souls.

Enervation is still increasing in Hoofington, though, even if the Project Horizons plot has been unwittingly thwarted by the Enclave.

I remember seeing this, but forgot that it even existed for a while.
I'm assuming it's still being worked on?

Yes, it's being worked on. Updates are far slower both due to chapter size and the fact that it's a side project.
