Unfinished Fallout: Equestria side storyEquestria seems to still be in the throes of a great literary revival, with the new edition of The Book of LittlePip having come out and all. Not that time has diminished the popularity of the Stable Dweller, the Security Mare, or Argyle Stockings (and her stalwart ghoul mareservant Xyra) that I've ever been able to notice. It seems only a natural step that once ponies have to focus less on survival they begin to once again create on a rather grand scale. Hundreds of memoirs have been published, or found, or recorded since the Day of Sunshine and Rainbows to someday serve as a testament to ponykind's ability to outlast its (so far) best attempts at self destruction. Now, as a pony that reads a lot trust me when I say this is largely for the better. Also trust me to say as the author that you're reading this is probably going damage the value of that opinion substantially.Unfinished Fallout: Equestria side story by cptlfrghtr
My reasons for writing this story are not nearly on par with
Experiment Description, Stable 76I have, for many years, doubted that the Stables were truly intended to save anyone. The fact that any of us survived down there seems like more of a mistake then anything really. Stable-Tec knew that they couldn't get everypony to safety and apparently decided to make all of us their little playthings; Stable 44's mood alterations, Stable 99's population control, Stable 69's chem overdoses, or Stable 77's poor colt and a box of puppets. Of course there were a few normal Stables, what good is an experiment without a control group? My own birthplace belonged in the former group.Experiment Description, Stable 76 by cptlfrghtr
Stable 76 was one of the company's delightful social experiments, particularly in methods of government. In this case, their apparent desire was to see how ponies adapted to what they called a 'representative democracy' rather than the old diarchy or the Ministries. Our original overmare was, naturally, appointed by Stable-Tec.
