Fallout: Equestria

Part one of my “Is It Good?” on the massive, influential, yet polarizing story.

I know, I know. I made part one for The Lost Element and never made part two. Why am I starting something else without finishing that one? The answer is simple. When that story concludes I will do part two. But as it stands, that story is over three million words, and still hasn’t ended. Who knows if I’ll ever get to finish it?

That said, let’s talk about Fallout: Equestria.

What Do I Know of This Story?

A little. I vaguely remember listening to CrazedRambling’s take up until chapter fifteen or so, but I don’t really have any memory of what happened. I know the titular character is Little Pip, and that Fallout 4 made some references to this. It’s pretty obvious it’s an MLP spin on Fallout. I don’t know anything else.

Why Is It So Polarizing?

It’s taking a generally positive, cutesy series and merging it with a dark and gritty one. It’s a given that some will be upset by that. It’s gotten major attention outside the fandom, which is a big deal. Not all that attention is positive. I remember reading an article a number of years ago where the writer accused it of being purely smut.

What Do I Expect?

A lot. It’s been eight years now since I “joined the herd,” so it’s about time I’d do this. I will be listening to the official audiobook, aka “The Voice of Little Pip.” Once Wasteland Echoes drops, I might pick that up and start over. Depends on how far in I am.

Fallout: Equestria
Fallout. With ponies! Set in an alternate future, one pony must learn to survive in a blasted, poisoned land… and possibly, with the aid of friends made along the way, bring new light into the darkness of post-apocalyptic Equestria.
