Hey there, hi there, ho there.
Thanks for deciding to give yet another Fallout: Equestria story a chance. With this here story, we're aiming to go a little more episodic, with chapters and groups of chapters making their own stories that you can pick up without much confusion or fuss. It'll go to sometimes weird, sometimes silly territory, but it's not random. It all makes a kind of sense.

First off, I want to say that Odds and Ends will contain NO SPOILERS for Fallout Equestria. So you don't need to worry about that.

Also, while this story is directly a part of Anywhere But Here, you don't need to read both to understand either (or Fallout: Equestria for that matter, I try to introduce all the concepts as though there was no other story set in this world). That said you should totally read both as they do add to each other and because we worked berry hard on them.:rainbowkiss:

Anyway, some fair warning:
This story is going to have both sex and violence in it and it will be explicit. So I dun wanna hear about you being shocked at this.

Secondly the "Chapter Intro's" use coloured text, if you have trouble seeing this due to eye problems (like me!), try switching to dark mode.

Now I just want to think Kkat for making the original Fallout: Equestria (which I swear I'll finish reading soon!) and for the use of the character's Ghoul Derpy, Red Eye, Gawd, and DJ Spinbitch P0n3. I want to think Stonershy for helping me every step of the way and for putting up with all my bad behavior. And lastly, but not leastly, I'd like to think my pre-readers, without whom this thing would be an unreadable mess.

Oh and I guess thank you for reading. I hope you have fun.

For the complete experience, read Rita with Sarah Silverman's voice!

Also, jeez that Stag is a messy fellow.

Pretty cool. I'm a fallout addict so anything related to is easy to picture in my mine. But damn that stag guy's a bit messed up.:rainbowhuh:


Gawd, I just dig Rita so much. She is hilarious. And that Iron Stag is one scary fellow. But I have to say there wasn't that much to this chapter, mostly gruesome violence and gore. It just feels like the story could go anywhere from here without this chapter having any consequence at all. I'm still looking forward to more, though, because I really love these characters you and Stonershy came up with. Both of you have an engaging style of writing :twilightsmile:

How much are those two stories connected? Do their plots (and following them) depended on each other, or do they just share characters and setting?

Same characters, but the stories are very, very different.

The original hasn't updated because I was waiting for this to get posted, and now that it has, I can resume posting.

Sometimes the events in this will be related to the events in that, and vice versa, but not always. This is more of a Double Tap and Paharita do whatever the fuck they want kinda thing.

1109940 Excellent story, the character of Rita is excellently fleshed out, and could easily be a real character. I enjoy FoE fics that still have an undertone of a nice reality under them!

Read the description.
This was originally one much longer chapter, but I decided to split it in two. This is actually introducing the characters and world and tells about how Rita's partner before Tap.

Sorry about the mess, but Stag's a close quarters combat guy, so that means taking his opponents apart.

I love the way Rita and Iron Stag interact. It's so amazing. Especially the end there. He just offs 'Sandy' and goes back to apologizing to Rita. I love it. I can tell that this is going to be awesome.

Not sure what you mean. She kinda, ya know, is a character.

Unless you mean in the show, because I think her sex addiction may be a deal breaker for a kid's show.:rainbowwild:

That's the the equivalent of 1/1! :raritydespair:

They do have a lack of empathy in common as well as a tendency to be over dressed. :pinkiehappy:

Yup, sorry about that. I never wanna see the inside of a hospital again. :pinkiesad2:

Alas, science can't do that. But look forward to the next chapter where Rita gets bored and takes some pleasure in a walk down memory lane.

That means she masturbates to a memorable sexual experience that she's fond of! :twilightsmile:

A hero's work is never done! :rainbowdetermined2:

1115396 Yeah, I reread that comment and I really could have phrased that better :rainbowlaugh:
I mean the personality is lifelike, there's nothing wooden about it. :scootangel:

Oh I see, well thank you! I'm trying hard to make a distinct character. And a griffon that isn't just a Gilda expy.

And you can't spell 100 without two zeros!
Why do you hate me?

Wow. Iron Stag has the badass silence of Steelhooves, the killing prowess of Rampage, the Calm of Lacunae, and the changing personalities of Blackjack.

I have no idea who these people are.
Except Steelhooves.
And when does his personality change? He's just very calm and cold, even when he's doing terrible things to folks.:rainbowhuh:

I have nothing planned in the future for this that will go to the level of the Chem Dealers demise, but some blood will indeed be spilled next chapter.

1115708 goddamn man it a good fuckin story!

You're only in it for the sex!!
I knew it!

(I am joking around with you. :raritywink:)

For all the disturbing violence, this is surprisingly hilarious. I look forward to loving this as much as the main story. :pinkiehappy:

Hence the "Dark" and "Comedy" tags.

This will be brutal at times, but the fact that Rita is so aloof about it kinda makes you wanna laugh.

Why did I know I would find you here Sevy
Great story intro Pacce, Though the whole Beginning of a beautiful partnership thing is a tad cliché.
Love how Rita seems to be so disconnected from the violence, can't wait until she actually starts fighting though, that's going to be awesome.

Um. She's a runt who's as big as the average mare, she's not much of a flyer, she can't hit the broad side of a barn, she tends to freak the hell out under fire, she's scared of just about everything that isn't a pony or a machine, she doesn't know how to throw a punch, she doesn't want to break a talon, and she's no good with explosives

Rita is not your average Fallout hero. For starters; she can't fight, she doesn't care about other's suffering, and she'll never fall in love. Also she isn't a hero.

Interesting, I am Intrigued

You and Stonershy have crafted some delightful characters and I'm glad to see Anywhere But Here moving forward again.

1116291 WHAT? you've never read Project Horizons? dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/misc_TwilightWut.png The only FO:E side fic that Kkat officially approved (go check EQD), while still writing the original FO:E? the story of not-a-nice-pony Blackjack, through the utter hellhole which is Hoofington, which is the regular wasteland plus a ton of other horrors/problems, all the while following the path of one of the biggest and most secret conspiracies of the 'old world' (all the while finding out how fucked up the 'old world' was as well)
and you haven't even finished the the original FO:E either? SHAME ON YOU!, again, SHAME ON YOU!
good story however, can't wait for more!

Iron Stag is best pony... just saying.

Huh i never noticed this fallout fict im going to have to read it ^^

Not gonna lie, I looked up a bit about it and it sounds really like something I don't want to ever read. You will not find any crossover here with that story or its characters.

He's the best he is at what he does and what he does is snikt snikt bub claw city.

Let me know what you think of it.

We try.

1125858 I like it you have my stamp of approval ^_^/)

Ah, wonderful, this series-thing isn't dead!

I did find what I think is an error, though:
"What drew her attention most was the helmet topped with two branching spikes, swept back and stained red."
If the spikes are swept back, how can they be used for the stabbing in the rest of the chapter?

Also, if you don't mind me asking, what is it about Project Horizons that's put you off it?

Think deer antlers, as the name implies. Also you'll notice that he lowers his head every time he uses them.

I don't really wanna smack talk another story, but the short version is it's not fun and the characters bore me.

Ah, I see; I was picturing the horns as curving back further.

Eh, okay.

Special thanks to Seattle, Stonershy, and Ape for helping with the editing. Without them, this would not be and that'd be terrible.

"Rita inhaled sharply, eyes wide, and Tap burst out laughing."
At this point, Tap has not yet introduced himself.

I really hate fucking up like that.
Okay, fixed. Thanks for the help, sorry about that. I'll try to do better next time.

Oh no, you made one small mistake in a 17k+ word chapter. This story is now totally ruined for me.[/sarcasm] :)


So that's how our two anti-heros met. And the Wasteland trembled in fear :trollestia:
Rita continues to be an amazing and hilarious character, so kudos to both of you for coming up with her (Stonershy mentioned she's based on Sarah Silverman. I heard of her, of course, but she's not very present on european television, so I hardly know anything her and can't really tell how much Rita resembles her).
Our favorite griffon only made one grave mistake: With wounds like that, she should have made sure Iron Stag is dead. Now he's doomed to come back as a very angry cyborg...

Great work again, those 17k words flew by in a breeze :twilightsmile:

Stag come back?
No one could have survived that. tm.

Also this will tell you everything you need to know about Sarah Silverman:

1477432 /) great work only way my day could get better would be if fire ghost updated have you given it a read?

You don't want to know how often the "no one could have survived that" trope has come back to bite me in the ass. He'll be back:pinkiecrazy:

Cant wait for the next chapter!!! :pinkiegasp:

gahhhh damn it..some how I didn't discover this until just now.
Now I need to read re-read (I fell behind and forgot stuff) Project Horizons, and this.
In all seriousness, I've heard very good things about this fic, and it's follow up, I look forward to starting it :)

I look forward to hearing what you think of it.
Even criticism is appreciated!

You know, I've been meaning to read this for a while. I think I will tonight and replace this with a real comment then. :pinkiehappy:

I can dig it. Did not expect the whole ordeal with the Stag, which made it very awesome. Stupid Stag getting all paranoid and reading too much into things. Now we have a Schrodinger's pony thing going on. :raritydespair:
