The man who likes ponies but also likes monsters... so what's wrong with him combining the two? ;P



You are a pegasus stallion who has been living in a Pony Accommodation Containment Shelter (PACS) for your whole life, serving as a member of the maintenance crew. When something goes wrong with the facility, you are forced to go to the surface in order to save everyone you've ever known.

Now you're stuck on the surface, in an ashen wasteland filled with raiders and monstrous ponies. Do you have what it takes to survive?

Please note that while this story does have the [Violence], [Death] and [Gore] tags, my intent isn't to make anything too descriptive. There is blood and some fighting going on but unless it was something I felt was necessary for the story, I didn't go overboard with it. :fluttershysad:

Thank you all for helping me with this story. :scootangel:

Also thank you all for reading this story. If everyone enjoys it than I might actually write more in this series (I would love to write more, please like the story :fluttershysad:).

it good! i wait for more

You know I can't stop thinking that the suit kind of looks like the one in Dead Space

This is a great start!

i cant like twice so i faved

10614276 Thank you. :twilightsmile:

10614173 That may or may not have been one of the inspirations for it. :raritywink:

Looking forward to see where this goes.

10615063 Well, chapter 2 is out now. So I hope that you enjoy it. :yay:

why do i feel her plushies wont survive?

Adorable and deadly, a perfect combination! Also, she reminds me of King from the Owl House. A bit kooky and rough but still kind in her own way.

Was this story inspired by Fallout 1?

The description and the opening chapters are very close to how the game starts.

10615511 I will admit that King might have been one of my inspirations for Runt. While there are a few things about Owl House I'm kind of meh about, I do love King. King is the best.:rainbowlaugh:

10615512 It is inspired by a few different things. One is the Fallout series (and to an extent Fallout:Equestria), though I also took inspiration from a few other apocalyptic settings. :pinkiesmile:

quick glance, i can already tell this is mlp version of Fallout.

10615528 Sort of, as I stated in another comment while it does take some inspiration from Fallout it was also inspired by a few other apocalyptic settings (and monster girls). :moustache:

I haven't even read it yet, but by the description, I can't wait to have the time to do so.

And Congratulations on the feature! :pinkiehappy:

10615823 Thank you, I hope you enjoy the story when you have the chance to read it. :pinkiehappy:

Flint’s lucky wrench +50% critical hit chance

This is really cute, and I like how you are incorporating ideas from Fallout while avoiding being too similar to Fallout Equestria. I am curious where you will take this!

Oh hey another of Rob's- oh god not this again :fluttershyouch:

... *leaves a like just cause* :pinkiecrazy:

10616430 Wait, what's wrong? The three red tags were just to make sure I covered my bases, I swear. :fluttershysad:


Also epiphany is misspelled.

I'm here for the monster girl romance, you can keep the rest :pinkiegasp:

Jk I'm just not into the dark stuff

Mystery, backstory, drama and leveling up this chapters got it all:pinkiehappy:

“Shiny sock for Roph’s dingaling!” The pony you believed was Roph said as he charged at you with a big, heavy cleaver. It soon became very clear that the last thing you wanted to be was a sock for Roph's… dingaling.

This is funny typical dumb character stuff right here.

10616738 1 vote for Adapted Mechanics, and thank you for pointing that out to me. :pinkiesmile:

10616744 Well, I have no intention of going dark with this series. If you were able to enjoy chapter 2 then know that I have very little intention of going beyond that when it comes to violence and gore.

10616781 Indeed. By the way are you interested in voting for one of the perks?

I haven't made it to chapter 1 :pinkiecrazy:
But fine I'll give it a try when I have internet again

I go for adapted mechanics

Companion acquired! Let the relationship be a long and healthy one, romantic or otherwise! Also, I vote 1 for now, but work on 3 for the next perk.

Primary choice is 1. Secondary is 3.

I'm really liking this.

I vote for #1.

I want to vote for 3 as flying will likely be a lifesaver but there are just too many interesting opportunities that 1 will open open, so I will go with option one!

Holy Faust, why is everyone voting for 1?:applejackconfused: Sure, building stuff is cool n all, but it only says fix! I guess learning to kill stuff isn’t as important as it would be without Runt, but if there is something they can’t kill, they gotta get away! Runt can dive, but “we” ?:fluttershyouch: Nope, ‘m not skipping wingday. 3 please.

‘M not saying 1 is bad, it does have crazy potential, ‘m just sayin’ to get the wings working first.

What is that purple creature in the cover art?

After reading your story that you posted yesterday and comeing to this makes me very, very curious for your future stories

This story was great, while I'm not a big fan of fallout equestria, this story was interesting

Also, i pick perk #3

10638930 Thank you, I'm glad you enjoy the story. I have a few ideas for the sequel that I will start writing sometime in the future. :twilightsmile:

You gotta check out Robipony’s “Monster Mares and You” stories if you haven’t already. You can find them here.
It’s the same writing style (2nd person ‘n all) and they’re all really good!

whos the five drunken fools that down voted this?!? this was a very interesting and well written story! im super sad its already over :applecry:
i look forward to reading the sequel when it comes out!
now im off to reed the new installment of flash gloom & gash bloom! :moustache:

10671742 Well, I'm certainly glad you like the story. I hope you will enjoy the one with Gash Bloom and Flash Gloom as well. :pinkiehappy:

The story begins!
It'll be fun rereading this story.

I love the plushies scene. It's wholesome.
The Fallout world will fall to the Army of Plushies!!!!!

Ooooooooo. Perk options!
I don't know which to choose XD
Nice read!

11342778 Yes, war may never change but plushies can. :rainbowlaugh:

This was really well written, in fact the only thing I didn't see mentioned was 'why' he couldn't come back into the vault... I mean PAC.... I assume it's due to some preconceived notion of contamination... but he was in a sealed suit! If nothing else, could the PAC afford to loose a skilled tech AND that irreplaceable contamination suit? And all the tools? All they said was, 'whoever goes up there won't be coming back.' But why? I mean he completed repair in no time, all he had to do was go to the elevator and ask for a ride down! It still works! I know, silly nitpick, but a throwaway line about 'contamination above acceptable levels' from his PiP... uhh... Hoof-pilot :) with him sighing and muttering something like, "guess there is no going back now." would give us the why the vault wouldn't let him back home... but anyhow, on with the story!

Meanwhile, outside a different PAC...
