At the beginning of the Age of the Great Frost, Canterlot has fallen. The ponies who lived there either dead, hiding inside their houses or having joined the Ponyville expedition to find the fabled Generator.
Those who decided to stay in the mountain city fought a constant uphill battle for food and firewood. In this collapsed society, a mother and her two fillies are part of the battle, but their mother just lost it.
Hyper Sonic and Gooseberry were on their own now and all that was left for them, except for trying to survive alone, was to give their mother her last honor.....

The first story ever set in Yudhaikeledai's "Frostpony" universe! Inspired by his wonderful and epic animation!

The cover art is an edited screenshot of "Between Dark and Dawn" and was created by me and DinkyUniverse.

More please or the derpy gets it :derpytongue2:

Very nice! Great job! I always find FRostpunk interesting. While never played it, it still came in handy for me


Derpy is a good thought here. She and Dinky have a very prominent appearance in "Frostpony". We even know their occupation in New Ponyville! I should eventually go and write a "Frostpony" story for them too. The story is just the first one I felt inspired to write.
I definitely will write more stories for "Frostpony". And I am also interested in writing more about Hyper Sonic and Gooseberry in this universe, in a multi-chapter story that goes into detail about life in the post-apocalyptic Canterlot during the Great Frost.
I want to write a lot more chapters for my other story "Dreamwalker Dash" first and update it regularly again, a story in which Hyper Sonic and Gooseberry also have roles, but after that I want to go and write more about their life in this universe.

Thank you for reading! :scootangel:

“We have to scavenge for food soon and some of the other houses are abandoned, maybe we will find the ingredients there.”

Only some? This means there are still more ponies out there?

Good story!
I enjoyed reading it.

Alternative/extended ending:

The two sisters were sitting in front of the fire. They ate their last food rations this morning, and their fire would run out of wood any moment.
Both of them knew they were doomed, but despite everything Hyper Sonic kept close to her sister. "I'll never leave you alone. Never, no matter what."
Hyper Sonic suddenly noticed a trembling. That itself wasn't surprising, shaking in the cold was painful familiar to her and would usually simply be ignored. This time however it felt like it came from the outside.
It slowly grew stronger and Hyper Sonic even imagined she heard an accompanying rumbling. But just as she was about to convince herself it wasn't her imagination the sound suddenly came to a screeching halt, just like the vibrations.
"This is really the end." Hyper Sonic sighted, "My mind is already making things up. The moment the cold drives us crazy it's truly over." Just at that moment, like a cruel twist of irony, the flames went out. Gooseberry didn't notice, which might even be for the better. Hyper Sonic simply hugged her even tighter. "I'll stay with you, no matter what."

She closed her eyes, but slightly opened them again when she heard the door being smashed open. For a moment she felt like she should panic, but it seems some rational part of her mind was still working. "Those fools. Trying to steal supplies from two helpless fillies? If there was any doubt Equestria was dead it's gone now." She closed her eyes again, a small smile forming on her lips. "They may have sacrificed their equinity, but they won't gain anything from it. They can't take from us what we don't have."
She heard the heavy hoofsteps of the unknown ponies who entered their room, but decided to simply ignore them. Whatever they wanted it wouldn't matter anyway.

"Okay everyone, you know the drill. Take everything we can use. Any rations, wood, tools, clothing, whatever. And hurry, clock is ticking."
"Got it, we'll pile everything in the center between these abandoned houses, then load everything onto the Steam Lorry."
"Our friends and families at the Generator need them to survive".
"It may feel a bit like stealing, but their owners don't need it anymore and probably wouldn't mind anyway we'll put their belongings to good use."
"Hey, do you see that? There, on the couch?"
"Looks like the remains of two foals. See how they are holding each other? Probably two siblings sharing their last moment of warmth before their fire went out."
"May Celestia have mercy with their innocent souls... Wait, hold on. They are still... breathing?!"
"What?! Quick! Where is the medic?!"
"No time! Simply grab them and bring her into the heated Steam Lorry!"

Hyper Sonic felt the two of them being lifted, and she instinctively hold her sister closer.
She passed out before she understand what was happening, but she knew she wouldn't leave Gooseberry alone. Not ever.


Only some? This means there are still more ponies out there?

Yes, there are other ponies left in Canterlot. Some ponies have joined the expedition up north to find the generator, but others stayed behind, either because the expedition couldn't hold more ponies or because they have decided to stay in Canterlot and to survive on their own initiative. I don't know if they are still alive at this point, when Hyper Sonic's and Gooseberry's mom has just died and when Hyper Sonic buries her, or if they have succumbed to the Great Frost because their firewood or their food ran out, but there are other ponies besides them who stayed in Canterlot.

Good story!
I enjoyed reading it.

Thank you! :scootangel: There will be more eventually, I can't tell when exactly, but there is going to be another short story set in Yudhaikeledai's "Frostpony" universe and I will expand on Hyper Sonic's and Gooseberry's life in the Great Frost together with their mom, Candy Wave, in a multi-chapter story.

Alternative/extended ending:

Wow, this is great! You wrote a story for my story! A fanfic of one of my stories! :scootangel: And it's really good! A few wrong words, some tense issues and I'm not yet sure if Hyper Sonic uses the word "truly" in her speech, but otherwise, it's a great and solid story!
I don't see it happening like that, in the events that follow after what you just read, Hyper Sonic and Gooseberry will stay for an extended time in Canterlot, but this is a legit possibility, it fits into the scenario and has a great twist with ponies returning to Canterlot after the generator has been taken into operation, to gather supplies from deceased ponies who don't need them anymore. And you also have put Hyper Sonic's rhetorical talent in the story, it's great that you thought of that!
I love this, thanks for writing it! :heart:

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Since you keep calling it "Yudhaikeledai's "Frostpony" universe" I should mention the video "Frostpony" was partly inspired by the story The City Must Survive.
See also this comment thread under the video.


Oh, "Frostpony" was inspired by a ponified "Frostpunk" story? So, the animation and the story show the same universe? I will have to read the story soon and compare it with the animation.
