Wonder why no one has said Fallout Equestria yet...

At 2034 pages, 108,000 words, it is the single fanfic given the Legendary rank by Equestria Daily.

Well, its basically set in the fallout game universe. Takes place 200 years after the war between Equestria and the Zebras, which ended in balefire bombs detonating utterly demolishing the world. In Fallout Equestria, it follows the story line of Littlepip, a pipbuck (not pipboy) repair mare living in Stable 2 with a pipbuck as her cutie mark. After Velvet Remedy asks her to fix up her pipbuck and then leaves Stable 2, Lilpip (the nickname used during the story most of the time) follows her out into the wasteland to rescue her. She soon finds out that the wasteland is a harsh, bitter place and she wants to help it as best as she can.

Here is a link to the EQD page, I HIGHLY suggest reading it.
http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/04/story-fallout-equestria.html

There are also sequels not written by the same guy, but are endorsed and liked by him such as Fallout Equestria: Project Horizons (Not currently finished, but you can still read the 2,700+ pages that have already been written [and yes, it is currently a lot longer than the original]). I highly suggest reading this as well.

Hello there !

I'm following your advice from a few months ago.
I started reading FOE a few days ago, and... Sweet Celestia ! This fic is beyond awesome. I mean : two of my favorites universes (MLP and Fallout) combined in one story, isn't that freaking cool ?
I really like the characters and their personalities, the story goes without real "dead" moments... And yeah, there are some kind of moments where I actually have feelings for the characters (for instance, I genuinely felt bad for Littlepip [Spoiler] when she had problems about craving for Mentats [/Spoiler].)
And the story, besides being a loooooong-ass one, is (in my opinion) well-written, and easy to read (I've got no issues reading it even though English is not my first language.

In other words, this story kicks ass ! I wish I took your advice sooner ! I'm currently halfway through the story, and I wish it never ends.
By the way, do you know if there are adventure stories like this, of the same length ? Or even half of it, it would even be great. I mean, 1 freaking million words ain't nothing !
User avatar #56 to #55 - grayrhino (03/04/2013) [-]
Of course!
------------
Fallout Equestria Project Horizons is a currently on going spin-off of the original Fallout Equestria. Currently, it is around 2800 pages and is my personally favorite story. It follows Blackjack, a security mare that follows the trail of the mysterious EC-1101 trying to unlock its secrets while simultaniously discovering the dark secrets of the pre-war era and of the elusive character 'Goldenblood', the head of the OIA (Office of Interministry Affairs).

This one is by far my favorite fanfic of all time because of the intense storyline and characters that is even more on-depth than the original FOE.
------------
Fallout Equestira: Pink Eyes is roughly 200 pages and follows the adorableness of Puppysmiles (roughly aged 3 in human year comparison) after the pink bomb that goes off in Canterlot and she falls asleep for 200 years. When she awakes she finds herself in the ruins of her home and she must track down her mom whom said she would be back for her after work. Even with the horrible world around her, she seems like she doesnt see it at all, and just follows the trials of her mom.

This one is a bit shorter than the others, but it is a 'must read' for any fan on the FOE style of fanfic. It will 'tug your heartstrings' by sheer adorableness and darkness of what happens.
------------
I am currently reading Heroes, and so far it is a nice change of pace besides the whole 'must save everyone and be the best I can' and instead goes with 'survive at all costs'.
User avatar #57 to #56 - grayrhino (03/04/2013) [-]
Oh, and these both take place at the same time as the original FOE.

There is one specific chapter in Horizons that is very fun and pertains to the original FOE, but I wont give any spoilers!
User avatar #59 to #57 - strelokkk (05/05/2014) [-]
I would like to thank you again for getting me into all the FOE ! I read the original one, Heroes and PH (even though the 2 latter were not finished by the time I read them)
User avatar #60 to #59 - grayrhino (05/05/2014) [-]
Well I'll be damned! I'm not the only one that goes back to old comments and will thank people!

You are very much welcome strelokkk.
User avatar #61 to #60 - strelokkk (05/05/2014) [-]
Even a year after, you don't need more than 30 minutes to answer ! I like that !

May I ask if you're still into MLP fanfic, or MLP fanbase generally ?
User avatar #62 to #61 - grayrhino (05/05/2014) [-]
Oh yeah of course. I'm still watching every episode that airs (usually on the same day, but I never get to watch it live). I'm very much so still reading Project Horizons as well. I think I've actually bugged the writer once about the lack of updates.
User avatar #63 to #62 - strelokkk (05/05/2014) [-]
That's pretty cool !
Do you know if PH is about to end ? I reached the end of what was written like 6 months ago so I think there's a couple new chapters now.
My opinion is that PH is as enjoyable to read as FOE, but some chapters are really hard to read (eg. without spoiling too much : friends who die, rape scenes, torture) so this is not for every reader !
User avatar #64 to #63 - grayrhino (05/05/2014) [-]
From what somber says in the little author notes at the end, he is planning on ending it within the next 5-8 chapters. Some crazy **** has gone on in the last few chapters as well.
User avatar #65 to #64 - grayrhino (05/05/2014) [-]
Also, my computer is about to reset, and I have to leave to a concert so I won't be able to reply for a while
User avatar #67 to #65 - strelokkk (05/06/2014) [-]
Fine, enjoy your concert dude, it was a pleasure talking with you (like last year ), feel free to poke me if there's new chapters being released, or if you stumble upon an interesting fic (I'm still reading the **** out of those, I've stumbled upon a few good pieces)
User avatar #68 to #67 - grayrhino (05/06/2014) [-]
Oh! Read Murky Number Seven!
User avatar #69 to #68 - strelokkk (05/06/2014) [-]
This was on my list, I'll just wait a bit because I'd much rather read a completed story, instead of reading it in 2 parts ! Did you finish it ? (I mean, the completed part)
User avatar #66 to #64 - strelokkk (05/05/2014) [-]
Oh thank you, I'd better read this as soon as this is released, because I really liked the story (even if I felt a kind of lack of inspiration in the latest chapters, but this was great overall), and I was terribly frustrated to be unable to end such a looooong story
User avatar #58 to #57 - strelokkk (03/04/2013) [-]
Well thank you very much my friend, I think I've got a lot to read by now :D
User avatar #29 to #28 - grayrhino (10/24/2012) [-]
Forgot to mention, it can be emotional at times. One minute you are laughing about what happened, the next you balled up in a corner crying your eyes out.
User avatar #34 to #29 - turtledude (10/24/2012) [-]
There's always Project Horizons.
But the gore and rape might be a little much in it.
(so much rape, it became a plot point. pun not intended)
#35 to #34 - turtledude (10/24/2012) [-]
re-read your comment.

I derped a little. it's 3:30 am, and i have to sleep.
User avatar #40 to #35 - grayrhino (10/24/2012) [-]
It actually doesn't talk about rape except one point in which one mare (not going to name) is raped once. (Not going to say when or how)
User avatar #41 to #40 - turtledude (10/24/2012) [-]
well, that, then there's pretty much all of 99, that one crusader filly that you know who killed (spoiler altert: she didn't really die), P-21, I'm fairly sure Rampage was (after she was found by the ghouls that turned her into a slave, many years before the events of PH) , you could include the raiders, but that's a given.

It's pretty good. I've read the entire thing twice so far.
User avatar #43 to #41 - grayrhino (10/24/2012) [-]
Ok, I'll agree that 99 was a rape factory, but Somber didn't go into details on that.
Yeah, but it was only briefly mentioned in a paragraph.
P-21 didn't go into talking about it much, but it is known.
And yeah, Rampage was, didn't talk much about it.
Lol raiders.

And same here, I wish the rest of the story would be instantly done so I could finish it, but I also want it to never end because I would have nothing to read.

awesome story, by the way.
User avatar #44 to #43 - turtledude (10/24/2012) [-]
Yes. I agree with you. Kinda curious as to how it ends, though. FO:E left too many open ends, in my opinion. Pip never gets to try bacon. That was my first rage at the end of it. And it wasn't until about 3 days later that i noticed something kinda important. (link soon to come to avoid spoilers)

The kinda important thing

well, i'm off to continue writing my story. APoaDC if anyone is wondering...

it's a first for me, so i don't really know how good it is. (chapters 1-5, ~69k words)

*the story as a whole is pretty good

Thank you but I've already read this one.

Ahh, I agree :) Past sins was great :D It'd have to be second on my list of favourites :P I loved the ending.   
   
I can't be of much help in the sad fanfic department (or any fanfic department :P I havent had time to do alot of reading. Not enough time. I've even put off reading the new chapter of Crisis: Equestria :P) I've only read about 5 fanfics in total.   
   
The saddest I've read would probably have to be the Cupcake Chronicles. Thats sad in a way. I would recommend reading that, but it doesnt fit the criteria. the Author started experimenting. There's a bit of R34 in there (Although I don't really care much for rule 34 in fanfics, I do admit, the presence of that one scene sort of added to the feel of the story (cant go into more detail, spoilers)) Most people just skip that chapter though. Im not sure this story fits what you want. As i mentioned, it contains a scene with rule 34, and it has some gore in it (not that much to be honest, just some explanations. It is a sequel to Cupcakes :P)

one I can think of is "A Precious Rainbow"    
its an alternative ending/story for "Cupcakes" were Applejack saves Rainbow from dying, but she looses her wings. she then has to learn to live without them. as for romance, Applejack helps rainbow and cares for her, so there's that kind and tender feeling between them.    
(it doesn't describe Rainbow loosing her wings or anything like that, the only bad things seen is Evil Pinkie dying in the beginning and Rainbow having nightmares)

You have read Memory Pending? This is the first time I have ever seen someone else who has read that outside of Fimfiction. Anyway, you may wish to try out "Dreaming with Ponies" by the one and only ROBCakeran53... and suddenly I have realized that someone else already linked that. Perhaps, try
www.fimfiction.net/story/54226/The-Rainbow-Face-Up
(Trust me, it has the sad tag for a reason.)
There is also www.fimfiction.net/story/58261/Gift,

www.fimfiction.net/story/19198/Background-Pony, www.fimfiction.net/story/5921/Eternal, or www.fimfiction.net/story/22831/1/Yours-Truly/Yours-Truly (one of my personal favorites). Background Pony and Eternal do not focus solely on sad, and I do not think the others have too much romance, but certainly worth a shot (at least in my eyes)
User avatar #19 - cpthitsugaya (10/23/2012) [-]
Well mine's not sad... But it's not very known... Perhaps you might try it?
User avatar #18 - joekooldash (10/23/2012) [-]
here you go, my fav so far

Past sins is VERY good
along with Eternal. those are long one that are great
#15 - John Cena (10/23/2012) [-]
If you liked Past Sins, I would recommend reading "Creeping darkness". It's written by the same guy, and I personally loved it.
#14 - strelokkk (10/23/2012) [-]
Thank you all ! I've got a lot to read now :D

I'm surprised though that no one posted gore/R34 fics so far ! Thanks Bronies !

A favorite of mine, and you'll like too if you like Doctor/Derpy.

www.fimfiction.net/story/36542/Roots-of-a-Heart
A Derpy/Fluttershy that I absolutely love. I cried at the end...

I'm also on the lookout for sad/dark stories too. They always have that something that makes them special.
User avatar #8 - twentypercent **User deleted account** (10/23/2012) [-]
I don't think I saw it in the comments below, but Until You Met Her is one of my favorites. It's written in the second person, and some have said it was awkwardly done, but I loved it. And the story has a sad air about it, but it's got a happy ending, so it's pleasant. Hope you enjoy!

User avatar #6 - strelokkk (10/23/2012) [-]
Thank you to all who answered !

I think I'm gonna check Dreaming with ponies first, sounds interesting.

Thanks for the titles giuetta ! (I read Eternal, very nice story, a bit too long sometimes though ! )
