When the merry bunch of misfits from B-Company get transported to Equestria, what's the first question that comes to mind? What happened to them? Where are they? What will they do? What will happen to them? For them, none of these questions will be their first. Instead, their first question will be: Where did Marlowe go?

This story takes place immediately after the end of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and for those of you who have not played the game, the prologue has a basic description of the characters and the story behind the aforementioned game.
PS: The tagged characters may not be all prominent ones, but they all represent who each of the squad would most resemble in Equestria.

What's this? a fic about my favourite multiplayer game of all time? Count me in!

Quick question though. Does anybody know why Russia was invading the US in the first place? I mean, I know they're kind of the go-to bad guy for the FPS genre nowadays but still, there has to be some kind of reason why America and Russia are at war in the first place. The game never really gave me a clear explanation :/



I'm Russian so I'll lay it on you, after the cold war Russia was seen as the 'Communist Menace' and has never lived that down. To this day we are still hampered by America, and all your games and the like are based off our short, if not pointless stage off. So the reason will most likely be about terrorism or some sorts of one way plot line to do with Russia becoming top dog.

That's my two bits.


Yes. Very yes. Do continue, now.

This is already gold.
We need more chapters!

1902965 I suppose you're right. I was just always a little put off by the fact that Bad Company made Russia an antagonist without explaining to the player why. I've always found it rather racist how the game gave me no reason to kill people other than 'because they're Russian'.

Still, the fic is fairly good.



You know how the 'No Russian' level in COD:Modern Warfare Two was about slaughtering innocent Russian civilians? Well there was a game where the player was a terrorist in every mission, and it was banned before it was even finnished. Just beause you killed Americans. I'm sorry to say that I don't see Modern Warfare two banned and disowned by all...


I hope you add comedy as a tag, it's what made that squad stand out.

1903435 well, from what I've gathered Bad Company IS set in the near future, so I guess that could work.

1903065 Ah yes, the infamous 'no russian' level. I'm pretty sure Infinity Ward put that level in the game for no other reason than to get attention. They used similar tactics in Modern Warfare 1 and 3 with the nuke scene and the cutscene with the child dying. I wouldn't take too much offense from it if I were you, things like this are added to the COD games for shock value. It's a cheap tactic, and if anything is kind of childish. When I played through the 'no russian' level I felt as if the game itself was waving it's arms about and screaming "look at me! I'm a big boys game!" in my face. But like I said, you shouldn't let it get to you too much. It's there to raise controversy and get Modern Warfare's name in the paper. It's kind of pathetic when you think about it.

But look at me! I'm veering off topic here.

Yeah, this fic could turn out pretty well, but that depends entirely on what comes next. Personally, I'm eagerly waiting for Haggard to demonstrate the power of explosives to ponies (whilst leveling half of Equestria whilst he's at it).



Oh dear no, I'm not offended. Merely saddened by the factor of our current world, and I agree wholeheartedly. The level was nothing to me, I was simply sitting with a friend, watching him shoot random NPC's. There was no emotion, no back story, no real passion. The nuke scene was okay, a daring move that paid off well in M.W.1, which is the only good one in my opinion. But alas, my point was. Nothing is really based upon fact, only loosely made from truth. I have a scene planned in my fifth chapter.. and well... I could P.M. you the details, but I'm using it to introduce a new story ark. The way I use it will have to be good, my 'Monoverse' writing is very.. sad. So hopefully it'll fit into my universe eh?


1903599 hopefully so, and please don't P.M me the details. I plan to read through that story you mentioned, and I could never stand spoilers.



Well I got a feature so we'll see whether or not you like it.
My cover art was drawn by my friend, who is a girl~


It's 'Defecation Hit the Oscillation'

Nice bro, never thought I'd read this crossover. It looks like it's doing well so far, so keep it up, and I'll be waiting for moar :ajsmug:

This is really just a filler while I wait for new chapters with other stories I'm reading, so don't expect much in the ways of progress

This almost made me not want to read this, but because a good battlefield story is rare I'm going to give it a try

Well considering the reception this fic has recieved, I will most likely (if not defintely) continue with it. However I will still take time out to read other fics, as well as presonal time (ie playing games, doing 'work' etc.). Other than that I'm pleased you all like it, and I will continue work ASAP.

1906161 I read it and thought it was great, but take time with chapters and make sure to get a decent editor (if you don't have one already) because nobody likes rushed chapters.


Okay, I'll see abuout that. In the mean time, I am trying to write up the next chapter as you speak, so if yuo don't mind...I'll be continuing my work.

Bad Company 1 was one of the few games I played online.

One of my favorite tactics was to plant C4 on pathway to a gold box. Wait in the corner for someone to come up then hit the detonator.


Cheap? Maybe.

Fun? eeYup. :eeyup:

:pinkiegasp: Oh look. New guy's dead! :rainbowlaugh:
Lol. I saw this and jumped on it, so see ya after I read.


The new guy always dies. They are almost as expendable as the red shirts in startrek. :rainbowlaugh:

Defecation has indeed impacted the oscillation, Sweetwater.
I know someone just like you, thing is he is an engineer suffering from clausterphobia, he is in the middle of a zombie apocalypse and the only other survivors he has with him are a guy who believes in conspiracies, a hobo and a woman with a tude of a rainbow maned filly and the accent of a certain apple farmer.

Also, shoot Blueblood for me please.


And I was just about to learn their names! :fluttercry:

Ok this is pretty good, I hope you continue this.

done and done, although I wont be killing him, I mean they're not crazed slaughterers.:trollestia:

can't wait for next chapter :yay:

MMMMMOOOOOOOAAAAAAARRRRRRRR!!!!! :flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::derpytongue2:

2540770 I would sir, but it was really just a spur of the moment thing and I never thought of making an overall story.:pinkiesad2:

Holy fucking shit.


and good chapter

...I favourited this?

Been that long, huh?

3534980 Yeah, sorry bout that, I've been struggling to get a chapter out for this one, and I've been busy with other things.

I saw where this was going with the first chapter and prayed it wouldn't come to this. But it did. It is a sad day to not like a Battlefield Bad Company fic, but that day has come.

3537337 what's wrong with it?


It began from the moment you explained that the reason why Marlowe was being so open and friendly in a town full of ponies was because they "seem friendly". This is the tough as nails Marlowe that I saw in BF:BC2? This is some other character that wears his skin.

I skimmed through the rest and I can see you have a very particular view of Equestria and how everything should act in it. But that intention is unmasked. I feel like everybody is a robot or a very bad actor. You try to work your "this is the reason why they are doing this and it is natural" into your character's dialogue in a few places. That detracts from the story for me.

It's not a bad fic. But it is in need of some editing.

3537828 I see...although I probably blame my lack of work on it. I spent maybe a few words at a time on it, then just finished up in the last few days, so my train of thought probably (if not definitely) went off. Sorry :fluttercry::pinkiesad2:


Dude, this is the internet. There are worse people than I out there. Plus, who gives a flying derp if I don't like it. The point of the whole thing is improve. If you truly want to write good stories, IMPROVE. You can always improve. And if you read the comment section, and look at the likes bar, people like the story you wrote for one reason or another. I, in singular, do not like it. 2 others agree with me. 93 disagree. Maybe they have (in my opinion) a different set of standards than I do to judge fics, but they like it none the less.

Maybe one day when you have cleaned up the fic and give it the polishing it deserves, I will come back on a cloud of light and accompanied by Pavarotti's Ave Maria and say:

"This is good.":moustache:

I finish the game today, it was awesome, and this story is very cool.
I know its more than a year, but, I hope you finish this story

chapter 3 i like this story BF Bad Company 1 and 2 are my only favorite battlefield games so i cant wait for the next chapter
