While the 2nd Battle of Hoover Dam may feel like a conclusion to the story of New Vegas. For the Courier who fought at it and won it for Mr. House, it was merely another chapter in his already bloody story. Now armed with a prototype long ranged Transportalponder from Big MT, Houston finds himself in a world much different from his own.

One where you don't have to kill, lie and manipulate others to get by every day.
One where "friendship" is not a contract, but a given.
One where he is the Teacher to a world unscarred by the concept of war.

A world of...multi-colored Ponies?

Heavily inspired by the works of Rated Ponystar, ShoddyCast and numerous other MLP X Fallout stories.
Note that Courier Six's backstory derives from the Fallout New California mod.

This story is very promising so far! I really enjoyed how you changed it up a bit by siding with Mr. House, other than the NCR or Yes Man. (from my knowledge you are the only one so far to do so, but I may be wrong in that assumption)

I hope this story continues on and all the other Couriers of the Mojave Wasteland come and flock to read your character's adventure ^^

I can not wait for a new chapter. (You are good at it)

Оооо да.

How many chapters can i read before getting new california spoiled ? I'm at the point where the patriots try to take over the vault

I don't know. I can't get the other DLC for Vages. only one I did was the Gun Runner's arsenal. Still like your story.

I am most interested.

Well hopefully no one/creature decides to automatically assume the worse and escalate the situation to violence. Although I suppose that depends on the language barrier and where or not Natalya is able to defuse the situation.

Twilight entered the room, sort of speak

Hmmm, fallout always had something going on. It was probably cthulu mythos shit that caused him to panic. Because that shit can anyone panic and go crazy.

Sorry to hear that, take your time and God bless!

Uh, I guess this story is going to hate magic because it's unfair to other species who live perfectly fine without it. Why can't they just pretend to play nice and use their strengths to their advantages?

The species of Equestria do play nice with one another. That brief history section was just to give a non-pony perspective on the concepts of magic and further explain why Houston dislikes it. It won't be a major narrative point since this story is a reactive story.

9718322
I understand, but to me what they are basically are arguing about is that Equestrians are so advanced that Celestia is duping everyone by calling their technology magical. Yeah, that would make human correct in that regard.

HMMMMMMMMM. This interests me.

I'm guessing no one knows about the Scorhed outbreak...

What's a Scorhed Outbreak?

9745737 The Scorched outbreak as far ad I know is a post-war apocalyptic event that too place in FO76. Everyone that's not from Vault 76 died a slow and dusty death and the source is apparently airborne. The fungus that makes up the Scorched either burns people into moldy ash or turns 'em into undead mushrooms. Oh, and an irradiated Noivern is the cause of it all.

Shining Jew of the Mojave stood proudly in the middle of the Mojave desert.

Shining Jew LOL i think you meant jewel :trollestia:

9745753
Thankfully, most of the mutations seen in 76 aren't really viable long-term and would have died out fairly rapidly even without the player(s) in 76 nuking the fuck out of the Scorched and erasing the blight.

True to its name, the 'Shining Jew of the Mojave' stood proudly in the middle of the Mojave desert. Neon lights and signs illuminate its darkness as patrons flooded its streets on their way to one of the four casinos. All the while Securitrons, Robo-Scorpions, and Cyberdogs patrolled its streets with a vigilant eye.

Lovely description, I recommend changing "Shining Jew of the Mojave though.

fallout 76 isn't canon change my mind

9745759
Welp, I probably should have checked the other comments before speaking up :P

I personally am not happy with the direction that Bethesda has taken the Fallout series, such as the multiplayer-only gaming experience, or the fact that they are milking the series based on brand name only. E.g. Ridiculous In-game microtransactions and excessive merchandising.

I also am not happy with some of the current lore that Bethesda has established, such as the Brotherhood of Steel being in Appalachia. Honesty, why does Bethesda continue to keep adding them in nearly every Fallout game they make with a major role to the story? Do they think that by adding an 'icon' of the series constantly, that it would make canonic sense to a world as complex as that of Fallout?

What I'm getting at is...I'm sick of Bethesda milking the franchise for what it was and trying to appease fans with iconography that has no soul or purpose to the canon. Therein lies the problem, Bethesda has forgotten that it is they themselves that own the series, not us fans, not Obsidian nor the gaming critics. Bethesda should move beyond the already established lore and strive to create their own lore, and by that, I don't mean lore that is built on patchworks of another. Fallout 76 is not their own creation. It is a horrid mishmash of modern-day trends, business practices and iconography that does not blend well together, no matter how much they'd like to think it does. I don't think that the people who built this game were proud of the end result. And neither were the fans. So while I'd prefer Fallout 76 to not be canon, it is a sad reality that we must accept cause they own the series. I can only hope that Bethesda moves on from the pre-established lore that's holding its creative talent back.

Sorry for rambling on.

9745778 I really wish 76 wasn’t canon like Fallout Tactics or Brotherhood of Steel.

I'm pretty sure 99% of Fallout fans believe the same as this.

Branding. yOu cAnT hAvE fAlLoUt WiTh oUt tHeM. The BoS are the 'coolest' guys in the series so they brought them back. Same with the Enclave. Its not about lore, its about what sells.

Yes, but the existence of 76 contradicts pretty much all lore. They don't really care, they just want something that sells. They dont give a shit about the lore. Take 4 for example, T-60 armour. T-60 only exists because they want something that looks like T-45 (the 'coolest' armour) and is 'good'. They care only about merchandising. Super Mutants and the BoS are in EVERY Fallout.

9746365 Okay, I won’t mention it again. The more I think about it, ‘that’ game might as well be the equivalent of a certain book series that shall not be named. Or its lewd sequel, for that matter.

" as long as the griphon is not already dead " this is the most damming part , feels very out of character

Please update this soon!

Interesting so far, glad that this isn't rushed or that you portray ponies as dumb xenophobes

"Cool! Does this mean my heart and spine can talk too?" asked Pinkie excitedly.

"Erghh...you do realize that those particular organs lack neurons, don't you? That means can't speak?"

"But a brain lacks a mouth! Rebut that Mr. Smartypants" argued Pinkie.

"I...I...My inferior frontal gyrus is wired up to both a language translator and a thought-synthesizing processor in my robot. Your heart and spine can't be wired up to thought-synthesizing processors! They can't SPEAK!!"

"Hey, Twilight?" Rainbow Dash nudged Twilight gently, "Can you explain all this egghead mumbo-jumbo to me?"

"Very Well, let me put it in simplistic terms for you. Brain. Smart. Heart. Stupid. Spine. Very stupid. You? Exceptionally stupid" Applejack and Rarity had to push themselves against Rainbow dash to hold her back from pouncing on Houston.

"Why are you such a jerk now?" asked Twilight slightly annoyed.

HAH, almost entirely taken from big empty with the think tank in NV heh heh heh heh

Holy shit! At over hundred likes with zero dislikes! That is quite an unexpected sight!

At the very least, Houston’s going to compile a medical encyclopedia for all the races in his spare time. Are Bark and Alpha companion mods?

Impressive. I had honestly forgotten about the Courier’s brain having its own sapience. I’m looking forward to seeing how this goes. Also I do have to say it seems unlikely that Fluttershy would react so poorly to carnivores, she lives with a bear after all.

The majority of the mane six are for the most part in character but I think the biggest fault here is Pinkie Pie. Shes random, but shes not ALWAYS random. Everything out of her mouth cant be a meme, in joke, random fourth wall break or a sentance without spaces.

Gas Gas Gas~

Sorry was listening to the the song, anyway loved the new chapter and can't wait for the next one!

If I were ever to write this kind of story I'd go with the Yes Man route it's my personal favorite

Unlike Twilight and her friends trying that on Celestia will fail. She has more years of experience in the field of speech craft and such.

loved the new chapter please update soon!

Interesting take on the Post-House ending. I always agreed with House on most of my playthroughs and most of the aftermath you've come up with seem logical and in line with House's reasoning. Kinda curious what House's take on the other DLC's would be (Red Fog from the Sierra Madre, Tunnelers from the Divide)

Also is it just me or did you basically make the the transportalponder into a flying nuclear DeLorean?

Curious to see how your take on the Courier reacts to Equestria, and how Equestria reacts to your Courier.

9771813
I'm curious what's your reason for that? I always imagined that route would end badly long term and the only reason to take it was for the catharsis of claiming the neon throne of Vegas for yourself.

Huh, lots of fandom community content here. As far as I'm aware the ultimate fate of 76 is undecided, and New California is straight fanon, as is the Story-teller.

Not holding it against, just stating for anyone reading the comments. Who's confused and may feel they missed something.

Tempted to add that armor mod to my list next time I play NV.

And now we start progress on first contact. At least these aliens are friendlier then the Zetans.

Well, clearly someone maxed out their Intellect stat.

Hrm, I guess a disdain for magic makes sense for a 'scientist' type of character. Seems a bit of a stretch considering the amount of sci-fi absurdity you find out in the wasteland. Besides, any sufficiently analyzed magic is indistinguishable from science.

Mane 6 are mostly in character except for Pinkie, she a bit too meme-y. Tapping on the fourth wall is fine. Outright referencing fandom memes and such is not. To be fair though, Pinkie is that hardest member of the main cast to write well.
