[GRIMDARK] Fallout Equestria: Project Horizons Discussion

Post by SilentCarto on Wed May 09, 2012 10:39 am


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. Expect random discussions that may or may not have anything to do with the story.
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, O. Hinds, and Snipehamster: Your editing team, presented in alphabetical order. 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!

Fanart! Where would we be without it?
...Okay, pretty much in the same place doing the same thing. Still, fanart is awesome. Have some.

Our Heroes
Blackjack

by MisterMech

P-21

by Fore-Trekker

Morning Glory

by DotRook

Rampage

by DotRook

Lacunae

by DotRook

Scotch Tape

by Fore-Trekker

Boo

And of course, no list of character portraits would be complete without our unofficial mascot, WavemasterRyx's bald, pudgy, adorable version of Boo.



Artists
A special shout-out goes to our resident artists:
The amazing MisterMech can be found on DeviantArt or tumblr.
WavemasterRyx has an general pony art tumblr and an ad'awwable "ask" tumblr just for Boo!
Fore_Trekker posts his impressive work on DeviantArt.
Shytalon posts most of his art on DeviantArt, but also operates a tumblr for his visualization of Arloste's backstory.

Why would anyone put Somber down?
He has created one of the best, most epic and longest stories ever written. We should praise him to the heavens for such magnificent feat. Big mac

Well, how to put it...

I think that Somber's fic jumps more from dark to happy atmosphere, whereas Kkat stayed more near the gray middle. That goes for both atmosphere and characters, they seem more varied in how they act and all, some would say they are more crazy sometimes. Depends on viewpoint I guess. Twilight crazy
It isn't worse, Kkat's style I mean, just different and I like Somber's style more. Though he prefers to stay in the dark more often, especialy immediately after things start to get brighter. And like someone said before, he does like to torture his characters in one way or another. Brace yourself for some really grim moments... or longer time periods.
And also there are all those conspiracies, I love stories with conspiracies. Rainbow

Yeah, if you haven't actually read PH, I strongly recommend that you don't read the comments or look at fanart. There are a couple of Darth Vader-class spoilers that you really don't want to lose out on.

Yup. This is why I wanted a fully operational phpBB forum, which supports all the BBCode specs!

Hello everypony!

Maybe finally I will comment on this favourite fic of mine, now that the discussion has moved to a more comfortable setting (:
While i'm here asking questions, can anyone explain to me the strange and puzzling nature of Sombers gender...I haven't been able to figure it out on my own.

@ Princess Celestia (Can't believe you got that name XD)

Somber, the human being, is a guy but somber the writing persona is a female pony. Either pronoun is acceptable.

@Curebores

I couldn't believ it wasn't taken either so I went for it (Celestia is best poni)
I promise I wont roleplay too much.

I see. That's interesting because I always had a feeling there was something feminine about the writing of Somber, I guess this explains it (:

Kippershy here - Glad we've finally made the move. Also glad we seem to have picked up a few friends from the main board!

For anyone who doesn't know me; I am the destroyer of Somber, I honestly am. I say something and Somber breaks down into tears as I realise I've just been stupid yet again.

BUT IT'S OKAY BECAUSE I MAKE IT ALL BETTER. Honest!

I'm nothing intentionally hurtful, I just have a very weak stupid filter at times.


Anyway, thanks for having us.

No one.
I never commented on EqD, because i didn't like the old system (and the new one seemed even more horrible)
I am much more comfortable with a forum-style thing, so here I am!
I hope noone will resent me because of my name ;)

Nice one ^^
I'm glad to be there to benevolently watch over all you little ponies.

I hope Somber will join us soon and be as active (or maybe even more?) as in the old thread.
I really like getting infos and updates directly from the author when I read a fic.
