[GRIMDARK] Fallout Equestria: Project Horizons Discussion

Post by Icy Shake on Tue Jul 22, 2014 3:02 pm


Welcome to the Fallout Equestria: Project Horizons Discussion Thread!
This is the place to discuss Fallout Equestria: Project Horizons, a Fallout/MLP:FiM crossover fic by Somber. Story discussion is on the left, group therapy to the right. Please try to schedule your emotional breakdowns when they don't conflict with anyone else's.

Rules
We have just a few simple rules here.


  1. Don't put down Somber.
  2. Project Horizons is a grimdark fic which deals with adult topics, so we might discuss subjects that some readers may find uncomfortable. Be mature about it.
  3. If Somber or a member of the editing team says to end a discussion, please do so.
  4. Spoilers abound. If you're not current on the fic, we recommend that you catch up before you read on.
  5. Looking for random discussions that may or may not have anything to do with the story? Check out the [Official!] Project Horizons Comment Crew Chat thread!
  6. Have fun!


People You Should Know
Somber: The author of Project Horizons, creator of Blackjack, maker of awesomeness, is a small gray mare who lives in the head of a guy named David. Ignore her claims of suckage.
Bronode, Heartshine, O. Hinds, and swicked (also formerly Hidden Fortune and Snipehamster): Your editing team. They make awesome writing look all shiny and pretty.
Kkat: The author of the original Fallout: Equestria. Not a participant in this discussion (yet), but you should be aware of her anyway. If you haven't read FOE, why are you even here? Go! Read!

Blackjack saw her running in and out of stable 99 in chapter 63, but we haven't seen her since. I think she's going to be important.

She got ties to both BJ, GB and Luna/Cog. Should be interesting

Lacunae Ex Machina
Eh? Psalm is a purple alicorn, now. Or rather, the purple alicorn we called Lacunae is now Psalm, because it was Psalm's body all along. She did retain Lacunae's memories (and emotions?) though.

Chapter 63 wrote:“Your name is Lacunae, yes?”
She swung her head back and forth forcefully.  “No!  No… I’m not her.  She was me, but I wasn’t her,” she stammered, rubbing her face with her drenched wings.  “I’m not supposed to be here.  I’m… I’m supposed to be in a bad place.  Because I did bad things.  But… but now I’m not.  I’m here.”
“This doesn’t count as a bad place?” Crumpets muttered.
The pale unicorn gave her a sharp kick in the shin with uncanny accuracy while saying in that gentle voice, “What is your name?”
She froze, her purple eyes haunted a moment, and then she whispered, barely above the rain, “Psalm.  My name is Psalm.”
“That’s a nice name, Psalm,” Fargazer replied in that calm, understanding voice.  “Well, it’s very wet, and you look like you could use a meal and a chance to dry out.  And I know that Paladin Stronghoof would like to--“
“No!” she blurted again, then bit her lip and shrank back.  “I…  No.  Please.  I want to see him… but I don’t deserve to see him… but I… I…”  She sat in the mud and bowed her head.  “He’ll think I’m her.  And I want to be her.  I can remember… remember everything!  Remember him dancing with her.  Remember her friends.  I… want what she had.  But I’m not her!”

And all along all Psalm wanted was a friend

Didn't Skull Kid try to destroy the world because he didn't have any friends?

Nah, it's Blackjack's

Gets drunk, hits the big shiny button and whooooops...

And now she's friendless and decides "To heck with this place"

I think she's going to play a pivotal role in the final confrontation, but as to which side she'll join, that probably depends on what she finds in her memories

Okey dokes. Checked out Nallar's collection, and there's no downloadable versions of PH. I have started my fourth read and I was hoping to make use of the note adding function of kindle to help editing. Looks like I'm gonna have to use the chapter 58 version though. I'm still gonna leave notes, so hopefully I'll have some editing recommendations at some point.

They were available as recently as last week, but the links are gone now.

Good lord man, that makes it even worse! We've already got spoilers that
say bad things:
say the kid dies before it's even born
but to imagine it's soul getting tossed into a blender on top of that!? It makes me wanna cry!

I think it was just an agreed-upon assumption on 4chan given Somber's tendencies. Then again, kipper might have gotten somber to say what he was planning again. I remember talking to kipper about all the things left unspoiled after he broke his promise not to post the final plot synopsis he got somber to tell him. In the interest of championing for /mlp/, I wouldn't be surprised if he then turned around and asked somber for a spoiler on that too before posting it.
In any case, it still strikes me as a b plot, not unlike Glory was when she debuted,  and therefore up in the air.

What ever happened to Kipper (not that I want to jinx anything and have him show up), he seemed fairly active back when I was a lurker

He just stopped coming here or posting much. No particular reason.
Maybe being here made him feel guilty. No one can really say but him.

I am neither confirming nor denying this rumor, but I would like to point out that it appears to be a rather old rumor that may no longer be accurate even if it was when it was first posted.

Nobody said that was one of the posted spoilers.

That's what I was going to say. Depending on when you asked, Somber could've honestly given you the spoiler that Glory was going to die soon after we met her. We all know how that turned out. Plans change. Not saying this one has changed or will change -- but don't put too much emphasis on something somebody says Somber said to them a year ago.

And that's assuming this is even the same spoiler we're discussing. I thought that Kipper got turned off by some revelations about the nature of the Legate and the Eater and how that whole thing was going to play out, not something relating to BJ's child.
