"When the dust has cleared, and victory denied; a summit too lofty, river a little too wide. If we keep our pride, though paradise is lost, we will pay the price, but we will not count the cost."


Dreck von Schlemmenschwimmer is a simple griff. He sees a way to survive, he'll take it. Perhaps others would ask for a boring life, one filled with the drudgery of going out every day, slinging muck at one another, and then returning home to sleep in a cold cot with one's own fresh turnip. However, Dreck is not stuck with a dull life. After all, every day yields new surprises from Katerin's mad princess. Who doesn't love the chance to lose their head once a week?

Set in the world of the Heart's of Iron IV mod, Equestria at war.

Written as an entry in Equestria at War's Fourth Annual Writing Competition.

Well this certainly was an enjoyable experience, in a more cynical sense.

Glad you liked it! Don't normally write these kinds of stories, but it was good to practice. And yes, the only option for living in a horrible place like Katerin would be cynicism. :rainbowlaugh:

I really loved this. The characters were fun and well thought out and the storyline was very enjoyable to follow!

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it! I had a lot of fun writing Dreck and Diellza. :twilightsmile:

As the guy who helped get Katerin done
Your characterization of Diellza and Glitterhoof is on spot with my comments that they're intended to be Calvin and Hobbes! Well done on being faithful.
And yes, Katerin is a shithole. And horribly mismanaged. And just a terrible place to live in.

:twilightblush: Thank you very much for the praise! I'm glad that I was faithful to your ideas for Diellza. It was a pleasure writing her and fitting in a new OC around her shenanigans.

I was hoping the griffin butlers head/skull would talk to her too but make her do sane things that were good for her kingdom.

Well, there's always the chance for a sequel, I suppose. I hit (and went over a bit) the 10k word limit for the story competition, so I can't fit it in, at least this time around.

I would certainly enjoy reading that!
