More than two centuries ago, the land of Equestria was a place of harmony, friendship, and prosperity. It was a land that was growing, flourishing under the peaceful reign of its sister monarchs and an industrial boom that echoed through its pastoral valleys. And for young Equestrian Army Lieutenant Dawn Glean, it was everything she knew. But when a steamer carrying coal vital to Equestria's economy is captured by Zebra pirates on the open seas, Equestria will find itself reacting to a changing world, one in which the daring expedition to rescue the hostages reveals a bitter truth - that war changes everything.

A work of historical fiction set within the universe created by Kkat in Fallout: Equestria.

Inspired by the Richard Sharpe novels of Bernard Cornwell.

Chapters (12)

interesting cover art

Why the Fallout: Equestria universe and not the canon one?

Historical fiction requires, by convention, a history to set the story in. I had originally considered using the canon history, but fell in love with the detailed worldbuilding and history that Kkat made for Fallout: Equestria. It better suited the kind of story I want to tell.

Another reason is that to me writing is like a conversation we can all contribute to. The themes and ideas I want to explore make the most sense, to me, in the context of the conversation Kkat started with Littlepip's story.

Your work is too good for this illiterate site, my friend. I'm absolutely loving the story.

By the way, you may wish to promote the story in relevant groups. The Shameless Self-Promotion group is perfect for that purpose, and you can add it to some other warfare and Fallout Equestria groups, too.

Thanks, glad you are enjoying it.

So it begins! Your descriptions are a wonder, my friend. Every scene flows into the next one smoothly and the pace is on point. I'm having a blast with this. You can really tell you've made your research both into the historical and fictional aspects of both the settings you're merging.

awesome chapter cant wait for the next chapter:pinkiehappy::twilightsmile:

Thanks! This chapter was fun to write. Mostly because Major Bolt may be my favorite character. :twilightblush:

awesome chapter keep it up:pinkiehappy::twilightsmile:

Just caught up with the story again! Great job with the past few chapters. :coolphoto:

Thanks everyone for all the positive comments - it tickles me that all of you are enjoying this story. :pinkiehappy:

You've probably noticed the new artwork for the cover and chapters. I hope to finish the sketches for chapters 5 - 8 this week. Also, chapter uploads will be slowing to once a week - I was burning through my buffer quicker than expected.

“This work is written as an in-universe series of historical fiction novels.”

Uh oh.

Not Cherry Bounce! I liked that one! :raritydespair: Another awesome chapter. Here's to Captain Bounce, the bounciest of captains, and to her probable new career as a pirate.

RIP. Always sad when lives are lost to otherwise preventable circumstances.
