>The article focuses on the results of a study of the predictability of urban travel patterns worldwide using a new visitation law. Topics discussed include the potential of the results to improve models of disease spread and city planning, discovery of an inverse square relation between the number of people in an urban location and the distance they traveled to reach the location, and tendency of urban dwellers to optimize their day according to lead author Markus Schlãpfer.

>I read about Reilly's theory of retail gravitation in the 70's, and have used it (combined with A*) for modelling my fantasy world's trading routes for years and years. Reilly's theory is an inverse square law too.

If they've refined, i particular, how to measure the draw of an area and the best way to measure distance (time, effort, etc.) then great, but this is not "super striking".

>Why post this here?
Cities are optimized to remove aberrant behavior by it's physical structure. As in due to continual data testing and implementation the physical is imparting mental effects one of such things is optimization. The spiritual effects are pretty telling.
Anyway the point being is expanding these search parameters one could model behaviors and actions with a high degree of success.

HARD CORE PROOF: Donald Trump is a Traitor of America
Well poners, sorry but what Trump did about the plandemic and the injections has to be addressed.
This may be called a shill and anti-Trump bread, but facts are facts, the Don opened the gates for hell to break loose and did nothing to prevent anti-American agents to run wild, except talking and complaining.

>He is a hard core ZIONIST and cabal member. They have video on him to force him to toe the line and he does as he is told: no taxes for life for wealthy cabal members, VAXXES for us proles, etc.
>Trump works for super wealthy British Banksters & Empire period not You.
>Other countries use Ivermectin but not the leading criminals in the U.S.

>HARD CORE PROOF: Donald Trump is a Traitor of America
>'Betsy and Thomas' have supported Donald Trump since the day he and Melania came down the escalator in Trump Towers to make their announcement. We are as devastated, as any of you might be, after discovering that Trump threw the whole world under the bus for big pharma with an executive action that he signed in January 2020. If what we discovered is part of a counter intelligence operation to expose and destroy the British Pilgrims, we need to know now. Is Trump a man of God and TRUTH or son of Satan and lies?
>Listen and decide for yourself.

More facts:

This photo is enough proof that he's a traitor.

>With you magic, you unwrap the rope and throw it down to yourself.
>With your front hooves, you squeeze the rope and pull the rest of you body from the ground.
>Then you move both your hindlegs to the left side of the rope.
>Then you extend your right back hoof and then use your left back hoof to pull the rope around the right one and then squeeze the rope bwteen them.
>After this, you begin to climb.
>You pull yourself up a new length with your forehooves and then follow suit with your back hooves.
>You climb pass a bunch of boards cobbled together so they look like a floor and swing off onto it.
>She put the rope back again with a wave of her horn.
>On the floor she stood on was a tree house the size of a real house.
>It was hard to see from below due to the leaves of the tree crown blocking the view.
>Your horn glow green as you start to mumble words.
>A circular plate is on the door.
>The inscriptions on it begin to fill with green light as you chant.
>You hear a click.
>You immediately push the the door open with your snout.
>Inside is mostly dark with the exception of a few candles here and there.
>You step inside, close the door, dry your hooves off with a nearby towel, and navigate the house with ease.
>You enter a room and found who you were looking for: Your mom.
"Mother," you say with a shaky voice.
>A mustard furred mare turns from a table cluttered with open books and gives you a scrutinizing look.
>"Yes?" she asks with eyes that signals to you that she already suspect what you will tell her.
Stop it! It'll be fine.
"I searched over the whole hill but I didn't find any Tomb-rose seed," you say.
>You look at the floor as you speak and you scratch one of your front hooves with the other.
>That's all the sound you need to start to tense up and hold your breath.
>"Which hill did you look over? Describe it for me."
>You take just a brief moment to think over what to say.
"Well, uhh... The one you told me to look over."
>Your head remains hanging but your eyes peer up and face the most scary thing in the entirety of the Everfree: Your mom's disappointed face.
>"Which was?"
"Uhm, you told me to go through the mud moat passed the gnarrly log and take left after the breezy mushrooms, right?"
>Her face becomes softer.
>"Yes, that's exactly right. Go on."
"Then I just walked straight for a like forever and I saw that phoniex nest and even a phoneix landing in it. From there, I saw it right behind that nest."
>You shut one eye and make a gesture to give the idea of a line.
>It's similar to that military 'go in' gesture.

Mmmm, cosy.
>Be Red filly.
>Vomit and Shrek won't leave you alone.
>The green one bites hold of your tail, nom!, and the other one is blephing constantly in front of your face.
>Your glower at the orange filly, which she clearly sees, is only obstructed by the need to blink.
"Look guys, I just wanna go to the toilet in peace," you say.
>"Yeah, but we're all girls-" the orange one begins but is interupted by the green one.
>"Fillies." After that correction she goes back to munching on your tail.
>"Fair enough, My point is, as the female members of the this world's dominate species it's our sworn duty to keep up tradition."
>You heighten one of your eyebrows.
"And that tradition is?" you ask.
>"To visit bathrooms together." She gestures away towards the horizon even though your inside your own house.
>Green nods to her statement.
>You feel your bladder telling you it needs release so you sigh.
"Okay, fine. But don't do anything weird."
>"Cross my heart, hope to die, stick a cupcake in my eye," she chants the pinkie promise and does the motions.
>You look behind you.
>As green sees your gaze, she also start doing the motions while mumbling the words through your tail.
>This satisfy you.
>This is Pinkie and Purple's domain.
>It had been evident since you got here that they were the successors of Princess Celestia's and Discord's dynamic of being physical representations of chaos and order in this world.
>A Pinkie promise was probably better than any contract written by a griffin lawyer with the most chutzpah in all of Equestria.
>You nod to orange and move passed her as green is dragged along by you.
>You enter the bathroom with your entourage.
>"So what do you wanna do first?" the orange filly asks as she gives you a bright smile.
>"Ooh, so it's to the toilet then?"
"...Yeah." You shake you head as you speak but you do it so little and fast that's more looks like you tremble from side to side.
>You walk across the bathroom rug and push up the lid of the toilet before sitting down on its seat.
>This time you don't have to hold your tail so it doesn't get wet by dipping into the toilet bowl, because someone else is munching on it.
>You feel that your bladder really needs to be drained but you have two pairs of cheerful eyes on you with a hint of anticipation.
>You cough in your hoof.
>"Could you turn around, please. I can't really do it with you... well, looking at me."
>"Do you need some help. How about I turn the tap," orange say and move towards it.
>Soon the sound of running water can be heard comming from Orange.
>"Which is most inspiring? This," orange asks and turn on the faucet to basically full-throttle or this, "or this." She turn the small chrome wheel and a thine but stll whole string of water gives off a sizzling sound as it hit the drain of the basin.
>You shut your eyes and massage your templates.
"Please, stop. You know well enough that that's not what I asked for. I want you two," you say and look over to the green filly, "to stop looking at me while peeing."
>The orange filly blinks.
>She looks a bit disappointed.
>She titls her head to the side and asks, "But what if you need help?"
>You stare at her with wide eyes, your mouth opens but no sounds come out, and you shake your head slowly.
"I think I can pee on my own," you say while keeping your facial expression but changing your head's motion into a rapid nod that again almost resembled trembling with direction.
>"B-but... I'm helping you by holding tour tail," the green filly says as you feel it swing down at the toilet's exterior as she drops it. "Without me, it could have fallen into the toilet."
"First off," you hold a hoof in the air, "the water is clean. Secondly, I'm quite capable of taking care of this myself. I have done so ever since I got here."
>The green minature horse walks up to you.
>"But I'd just wanna help youuu," she wails.
>She climb up on you with her front hooves placeed on your hindlegs and begin to nuzzle you profusly.
>Be Anonfilly.
>Be in Rustling Pages, a bookstore in Canterlot.
>With your nose, you flip some hardcovered books out of the way in the fantasy section pile.
'The Floating Discs of the Hightlands by Alley Gust', 'The Forbidden School of Magic by Young Tree', and 'Zappie Snappy and The Gnarly Black Tree of Silence by J.K. Yearling'; you read the titles in your head.
Wait, isn't J.K. Yearling that Daring Doo author?
>You looked at the cover.
>A blue pegasus with a red and yellow mane tried to fly out of reach from some black branches that seemed to grab after her like tentacles.
>It certainly looked like Daring Doo cover.
>You had actually read the first book of Daring Doo, your mom being a huge fan and all that.
>Speaking of which, the pegaus in the image was kinda light blue now that you thought of it.
>She also head pink eyes and...
>Yeah, Daring Doo had written a fantasy story with Rainbow Dash as the main character.
>Did she know?
>Only one way to find out.
>With your wing, you open your saddlebag and pull out a feather pen, an ink bottle, and a paper.
>After dipping your pen into the ink, you scribble down a message for your mom.
>You roll it into a scroll.
>You look around; Where is that unicorn?
Maybe in the romance section, you think.
>You pack back your stuff into you bag and bring the book under one wing and the scroll under the other as you walk off to the romance section.
>You smile as you find who you're looking for.
>A yellow unicorn's face has dived into a book that she hold up with her blue magic.
>You hear the small giggles here and there.
>She seems to become self-aware and combs some of her blue bangs of her mane behind one of her ears.
>She looks around to see if anypony is staring at her; she finds one: You.
>She recognice the knowing sly smile on your lip, blush a little, and look away.
>You walk up to her and tries to peek at what she is reading but she pulls the book out of your view.
>Your gazes meet.
>"Go read your adventure books, will you? Shoo," she says and waves you away with a hoof but she can't help but to grin a little.
"What can't I read it? You seemed to enjoy yourself? Maybe, I'd like it too," you say with a shit-eating grin.
>"Hm-mm. I was but-" She shakes her head but the playful smile is plastered on her face. "-you only want to read it to make fun of me."
>She pokes you with a hoof in your green fluff.
>Your grin somehow does the impossible and stretch even further and you look to the side.
"Nah, would I do that to a friend? We- Haha. All like diff-Ha-"
>"See, you can't even finish it. So no, you're not gonna get to read it."
>You see her slide the book into a plastic bag.
>You make a bluff attempt to reach for the book with your wing by stretching it over her back and stick it into the plastic bag.
>She just hoist it to the ceiling.
"Oh, you wanna go? You think I won't fly up there and get it?" You playfully flap your wings but carefully as not to drop what they're carrying.
>She rolls her eyes to begin with but then sees the book in your wing and look puzzled.
>She points to the book in your wing.
>"You find something you liked? That's unusual," she says.
>You reveal the contents of both your wings and hold them up to your friend.
"Do you remember that I told you that my mom is friends with J.K. Yearling?" you ask.
>"Yeah," she says and nods as she looks over at the book.
>Her eyes go wide and her mouth creates a solid, 'o' shape.
>"Ooh, wait," she turn to you, "You mean to tell me that. That's so cool!"
>She smiles at you and you blush.
"I mean I think the resemblance is quite striking, don't you?" you say.
>"So you learned about this now?" she asks somewhat surprized.
>You nod.
"Yeah, I've not heard anything about this from mom that's why I came to you. I need you to send this scroll to my mom," you say and nudge your head towards the scroll.

>Looks like Jews aren't that tolerant of blacks after all!
Only when niggers can be used as a battering ram against Whites.
Indeed, whenever a Gentile (or group of gentiles) outlives their usefulness they go from being allies to being subhumans in a second. Just look at their shift in opinion on Arabs/Muslims - they used to love them in the middle ages, now they HATE them.

Jews don't know loyalty to anyone but their own, bottom line.

Mass Immigration / Invasion
315428 315701
It is clear that the American ruling class is determined to dispossess and genocide the historical American-European nation. This crime begun in 1965 when those in power initiated the multicultural and multiracial experiment, without consult and enforced at gun point.
Now the government is accelerating the foreign invasion at the levels seen in Europe while at the same time collapsing the economy that supposedly would sustain the invading hordes.

ZOG is running a travel agency out of McAllen, Texas.
It's interesting to note that Stacey Abrams had that "race will win the race" presentation in 2014 that called for immigration and redistricting to remove the white vote by 2021. Bizarre. If you try to find the video it was purged off the internet.
Also, I figure you could make one of those low populous red states blue without even having to bring a lot of immigrants in and pick up two more senate seats. Wyoming population is only around 500,000.
That reminds me that Stacy Abrams is on the steering committee for bilderberg

For anyone who stumbles across this thread and is wondering what it is, this is a literary review thread for pony fanfiction. We take an MLP fic, read through it, and shit all over it discuss its literary merits.

We are currently reading Fallout: Equestria by kkat.

Thread number four. We are nearing the end of the tunnel, thank God.

Previous thread: >>304714 →

Currently on Chapter 38: Peace in Our Time

Continuing from previous post.

>>311555 →

Page bweak. Littlepoop falls unconscious, has a flashback, and drones on about how shitty she thinks her life is for literally eleven paragraphs. Nothing else happens.

Page break. Littlepoop wakes up in a filthy, unfamiliar bed in some abandoned cottage somewhere. I'm sure kkat is writing from personal experience here. She whines for several more paragraphs about how miserable she is, even claiming to have PTSD from losing a rib, even though she stated earlier that it had been healed with magic and she will sustain no permanent injury other than a scar.

>The heart-rending blow of watching Applejack step out of that elevator… and realizing that Applesnack had intended to propose to her that very night, and she was anticipating it… oh Goddesses.
This is another continuity error along the lines of what I pointed out in the previous chapter. By her own admission, she did not view the orb whose events she is referencing here until after Canterlot, and unless she's been losing herself in orbs during battles again, she would not have had time to view it between their escape from Canterlot and the present. She should not have witnessed these events yet.

LP can hear her friends talking in the next room. Apparently they found some new armor for SteelHooves from somewhere, or found some armor they could use to repair his existing armor, or something along those lines, because they are discussing rehabilitation for him. He can't move properly at present, but should be fine in a bit. Also, Xenith is there, so presumably they are back at Glyphtown or whatever that place was called.

Anyway, SteelHooves gives a schmaltzy speech about how Applejack learned to love zebras, and so he figures he could learn to love them too. You may or may not remember that SteelHooves doesn't like zebras, or doesn't trust them, or something. At least I think that was a thing with him. Anyway, the significance seems to be that he's over it now, and he and Xenith can be friends I guess. Nothing else happens.

Page break. Littlepoop is still sick or injured or something, so is Velvet, and SteelHooves presumably hasn't learned to walk again yet, so it seems they will need to rest for a couple of days. Xenith comes in and rubs ointment into Littlepoop's horribly painful bum-wounds, and tells her that she is not allowed to get out of bed until she is rested enough to stand on her own and keep down solid food.

For some reason, LP is in a huge hurry to resume her mission all of a sudden. It's been about twelve chapters since Red Eye first gave her the task of killing the Goddess, and told her that there was a bomb in Tenpony Tower that would explode if she didn't do his evil bidding incidentally, how is that situation coming along, anyway? bomb still tick, tick, ticking away?. Since that time, LP has done nothing but goof around and go on side missions, stopping to help every random pony she bumps into, no matter how trivial and mundane their problem is. She's still done absolutely fuck-all in terms of progress on this mission, though to her credit she did finally complete the mission the Goddess tasked her with, when she agreed to do a mission for her instead of killing her, which was the original mission.

So, what's the big hurry all of a sudden? Why not rest, take a few days off, heal your injuries, which for some reason you can't just shrug off by downing a potion this time around? You were willing to spend several days goofing around in Tenpony immediately after Red Eye gave you this assignment, so what exactly is the issue?

Anyway, they talk about Xenith's daughter for a bit. Seems like she's being basically written out of the story so that Xenith can rejoin the party. Since she wasn't much of a character in the first place, I don't think anyone is really going to miss her that much. After this, Littlepoop proceeds to mumble to herself about the usual nonsense until eventually the scene ends.

She embarks on one of her annoying little self-doubt episodes, bemoaning that she is about to lead her friends on a mission but she doesn't even know what the plan is since she erased her own memory. Then, she remembers that she is Mary Sue, the Chosen One, and nothing bad could ever possibly happen to her.

>I’ve told everypony their parts, and just their parts.
>Every pony...
>…because the Goddess couldn’t read zebra minds.
>A smile broke across my muzzle. Ooooh, I was a clever pony!
Has it been established that the Goddess can't read zebra minds? This is actually a serious question; I really can't keep track of even half of the ridiculous rules that have been introduced into this story thus far, but kkat is generally more less consistent when it comes to these kinds of details. Anyway, it looks like LP's plan is going to revolve around Xenith somehow.

Page break. It looks like someone else might have pointed out the continuity error with the memory orbs to kkat, because this scene starts with an angry rant from Calamity about LP viewing a box of memory orbs while he was off getting the Fart Cruiser. If I'm interpreting it correctly, the idea is that LP watched all six of the orbs while she was in the warehouse, sometime between Calamity's exit and the basement explosion.

This one is a draw, as far as I'm concerned. +1 to kkat for recognizing and correcting a continuity error, -1 for doing it in an idiotic, clumsy and illogical way.

This attitude persists throughout the entire story. As we've seen, the events of this book are pretty discordant: LP escapes from the stable because she's horny, goes looking for her girlfriend, can't find her, and ends up captured by slavers. She escapes, wanders around for awhile, ends up in some random town, decides to randomly invade a nearby town and go on a killing spree, escapes, decides to go to another random town to go on another killing spree, gets sidetracked on the way, ends up fighting a dragon for some reason, and so forth and so on.

The whole story is just a string of bizarre actions taken by this character: she does one random thing after another, constantly throwing herself into fights that have nothing to do with her, attacking characters who have shown her no direct aggression, continuously putting her own life and the lives of her so-called friends in danger. She has no overarching goal other than a vaguely-defined belief in "good" and an unexplained desire to somehow "fix" the wasteland. However flimsy this belief may be, though, she is clearly quite driven by it, and that drive pushes her from one situation to the next. In other words, her actions make no obvious sense to the reader, but they clearly make sense to her somehow. In short, she's deranged.

The simplest comparison I can think of is this: imagine a story about a space hero who is fighting to save the earth from alien invaders. The aliens keep coming, constantly threatening the hero's life and the lives of the people he loves, and he keeps fighting them. No matter how many of them he kills, the aliens keep on coming and coming. There are piles of dead aliens all around him; he's tired, he's hungry, he's thirsty. All he wants is to go home to his nice little farm in Oklahoma and live a long, peaceful life with his three-legged dog Bootsy. But he can't, because the aliens keep coming and he has to keep killing them, or else the Earth will be destroyed.

Then, the M. Night Shyamalan twist: turns out there were never any aliens. There is no invasion of earth, no threat, no danger. There's not even a farm in Oklahoma. The "space hero" is just some lone schizo who escaped from a mental hospital and shot up a mall.

That's basically Littlepoop in a nutshell: she's not heroic, she's just crazy. If you don't believe me, read her unhinged blather about "faith" at the beginning of this chapter and compare the substance of her words to her actions so far.

It's important to understand that LP's derangement exists separately from any tangible action she takes in the story, and from any tangible consequences her actions produce. Even if she manages to accomplish some kind of overall "good" by the end of the story, she's still deranged, and her motivations for every action she's taken in this story still make no sense. Imagine if instead of shooting up a mall, the schizo from our example had inadvertently wandered into a bank robbery and foiled it. He technically accomplished something good, but does that make him any less deranged or dangerous?

Protip for authors: this is why you need to thoroughly consider who your characters are and what drives them, rather than just narrating their actions and assuming we will naturally grasp the why. It doesn't matter what their ultimate goal is, whether it's saving the world or getting promoted to assistant manager at Arby's; if you can't easily explain why they are pursuing the goal that they are pursuing, then the reader will have no choice but to assume that your character is insane.

As an ironic aside, LP could actually have been kind of a fun character if kkat had actually realized how mentally unhinged she is, and explored it. Unfortunately, this would never happen, since her derangement is actually the product of kkat's.

Page break. It's becoming gradually clearer that LP's first-person narration is actually part of the story. We are now getting some pretty strong hints that she is not telling her story to the reader in the meta-world, but to another character in the story. Whatever final action she intends to take, that (in her mind at least) is the one thing she can do to save Edgequestria from the horrible doodoo that threatens to consume its soul, has yet to be taken. The individual to whom she is narrating this is probably essential to whatever she has to do next, and she felt it was necessary to tell her story to this person before taking the final plunge.

Anyway, this microscene begins with this heading: "two days ago." The gang is apparently back in Zecora's old hut, having some kind of meeting. We are given a brief recap of everything that happened between the end of the previous scene and this one: basically, they kept walking, found the hut, took some healing potions, and rested a bit.

>Several of the ponies from the Overcast’s prison had worked together to dig a grave for the foal who had died in captivity.
I think I'm gradually beginning to remember what was happening in this story before I went on hiatus. When LP talks about the ponies she's "rescued," I've been assuming she is talking about the 25 unicorns that Red Eye had in a cage. Though she did indeed rescue these, she also rescued some captives from the Enclave ship Overcast when they were in there earlier; I'd just forgotten about it.

In my defense, it's partially kkat's fault that I've forgotten about these other captives. Not only because of how long and convoluted this story is, but also because he's been treating these captives the way he treats all his other NPCs: as complete non-entities. These characters have had little, if any, spoken dialogue, only a couple of them were given names, few of them were given more than the most bare-bones description, and literally none of them were made remarkable enough to remember. Their only purpose in the story is to give Littlepoop another batch of random background characters to rescue.
How do you feel about the fact many fans have been giving this story praise for how it handles its narrator, citing the fact that it's a retelling of events by the protagonist of their journey as her being inherently delusional/ unreliable and thinking of herself to be a hero when she's actually not, and how this is brilliant and well-written? And that the flaws in her characterization and the plot and such are explained by this fact?
Something's been bugging me about this tale for a while now.

How many heroes have "i defend this city/planet/universe because I live here" as their motivation? Batman and Twilight want to protect their homes.
Then there are heroes with something to gain. Edward wants back what Alchemy took from him. Naruto wants the respect of his village.
Then there are heroes with a precious person to protect like how Jotaro wants to save his mother.
There can be heroes with multiple goals. Lelouch hates Britannia and wants his sister safe.
Then there are reluctant heroes just here to do a job like "retrieve that person" or "get this character to x location.
Joel from The Last Of Us just wanted Ellie where the Fireflies wanted her, until they bonded so much he said no in the end and saved her.
And then there's Littlepip.
She was manipulated by Velvet into removing Velvet's PipBuck, helping her escape the vault without any way to track her.
LP was loathed. Felt like she had to go out into the wastes to retrieve Velvet. Even as she's told on her way out "don't leave or you will never be allowed back in".
LP's life was basically ruined at least a little by this selfish bitch. Learning Velvet had a stupid motive and has flexible morals should piss her off nore.
And then when LP stumbles into meeting Velvet they get along instantly.
LP isn't pissed. Doesn't call Velvet a selfish whore. Doesn't try to drag Velvet home kicking and screaming. We don't get a scene where LP is injured and Velvet saves her life by surgically removing the bullet and sealing the wound with a campfire-heated knife on the condition that LP lets Velvet be free in the wasteland and takes her to Tenpony Tower.
We don't get a scene where LP drags Velvet back home only to be told "Velvet the celebrity can come back but fuck off, Littlepip. If we let you come back with awesome tales of murder and heroism everyone will want to leave this vault and be just like you. So fuck off. Sorry, you're a hero and you have to leave", prompting LP to say "fuck this" and leave with Velvet.
Littlepip decides she has to kill all the major faction heads in the area she doesn't like even though she has nothing to gain except ammo and sicker guns.
LP isn't going around looking for a place to settle down. She isn't carrying an all important mcguffin and she isn't one either. LP isn't on a mission with a time limit and stakes. She's on a self-appointed crusade to slaughter everyone she doesn't like for fun and profit.
She's the one who wants to visit the radio tower that sucks LP cock constantly and giving her Velvet's music is a bonus. Going through a monster infested radio tower for old vinyls for said radio tower is also a bonus. She takes it upon herself to sneak into Red Eye's land as a slave hoping to get within killing range of him. It's not like she's a pawn masterfully played by Red Eye or Homage. She's just a wrecking ball out of control, a powergaming munchkin looking for loot and EXP...
EXecution Points.
Littlepip never fundamentally changes enough as a person to start being a coherent hero with coherent goals, she's just a bored murderhobo and there's no reason why a person like this wouldn't have created a more interesting backstory for herself in the Stable.
LP was sold to us as a nerdy cowardly snarky everypony who once woke everypony up at a slumber party in her childhood by screaming after a nightmare about leaving the Stable and falling into the infinite nothingness beyond it. She is also a telekinetic god with maxed stats in everything except Explosions.
But besides occasionally blabbering to herself about a fear of heights or wide open spaces she fears nothing, not even death or the loss of her friends, and the author doesn't seem to see anything unusual about this. Calamity didn't have any complaints when he was dying from poison and LP put off treating him until after she'd looted everything in the chimera "misoginist" stable that wasn't nailed down and blew the place up too. The death of Steelhooves didn't make Velvet question LP's ability to keep her safe or make Calamity doubt his own ability to keep Velvet safe. The slaughter of cannibals and BOStards at Arbu didn't change these ponies fundamentally or seriously damage LP's reputation in anypony's eyes.
Kkat has no idea what kind of hero LP is supposed to be or what kind of better world she's supposed to be creating through the mass slaughter of anyone who doesn't meet her moral standards. She just knows she needs to gun down villains until she is told there are no more villains to kill, while smarter ponies than her do good for the Wasteland and build trade routes and relationships that can form the foundations for a new country. Societal change is big and confusing and it happens offscreen and we're told it's a result of her actions. We're told society made ponies become raiders who decorate their homes with piss and shit and gore and cum splattered beds and we're told society is improving thanks to Littlepip's "inspirational" mass violence. She's never said anything particularly inspirational about peace or war or rebellion or fundamental leaders or human(pony, whatever) rights or building a better world through mutually consensual deals. She's never said anything politically or economically wise enough to inspire anything intelligent like the rejection of monarchy and leaders in general and the birth of capitalism/anarchocapitalism. She has nothing smart to say about how or why Equestria fell. She has no solution to the Zebra problem and if she existed in the prewar era without postwar knowledge nothing she could or would have done would have saved anypony. LP only started killing when she thrust herself into a world of killers to escape her unpopularity in a safe stable.

We're told LP is nopony and LP tells us she is nopony. Then she demonstrates OP violence. Then we're told she is an inspirational wounded hero fighting for a better world.


Kkat can't design one. Or policies that'd build it.

Anyway, the team appears to be having some kind of war council to discuss Littlepoop's latest deranged plan. For some reason, that hellhound with the robot leg has been allowed to join, and seems to be considered a member of the group now.

LP announces that she intends to pull a reverse Mr. Burns and bring back the sun. Pause for astonished gasps. Her reasoning is that this will kill a few different birds with one stone. The Enclave relies on the cloud cover to grow their crops, and taking it away would deal them a fatal blow, since not only would they no longer be able to feed themselves, but they would also no longer be able to keep their population from descending to the surface.

>“Open the sky and they won’t be able to stop all the pegasi who look down and then decide to buck off the government who has lied to them,” I proclaimed. “Open the sky and they no longer have a reason to slaughter ponies out of fear that one of us might remove their precious clouds.”
So basically, the Enclave has been bombarding its citizens with propaganda for years, claiming that the surface ponies are evil villains who want to take away the pegasi's farm-clouds and starve them. LP intends to expose these lies...by doing the exact thing that the Enclave said she would do, thus proving that their propaganda was actually right all along? Brilliant as ever, LP.

Anyway, the other part of this is that removing the cloud cover will bring the sun back, and everyone can enjoy natural light again. While this would no doubt make the wasteland a bit less dreary, LP seems to have overlooked a couple of details; namely that destroying the Enclave's only food source will probably cause widespread famine and death. We've already been told that the Enclave employs population controls on account of how they can't farm enough food to feed their population. We also know that food is scarce in the wasteland in general, since the population seems to mostly subsist on scavenged prepackaged food from before the war. LP's move will likely double or even triple the number of hungry mouths wandering around the wasteland, without doing anything to improve its food production. But hey, at least they'll all be able to enjoy the warm glow of Celestia's sun again.

Velvet seems to have caught on to this somewhat. She points out that the cloud cover is a food source that the pegasi depend on. However, it seems LP is just too darned clever for both Velvet and myself. She now reveals the cleverest part of her plan: she's not going to blast away the entire cloud cover, just some of it. Her plan, literally, is to "get in there, analyze the situation, and trigger a cloud-sweep from as many of the towers as we can without causing famine." It's okay folks; she's only going to nuke half of their crops.

Calamity isn't quite convinced either. He points out that the pegasi have razor-thin margins on their food supply as it is, which is why they engage in population control. His prediction is basically the same as mine: getting rid of the cloud cover will have a cascading effect that will likely result in even more chaos and bloodshed spreading across the wasteland. LP's answer to that one, naturally, is a song we've heard many times before: "I have a plan, but I can't tell you what it is yet. Just trust me and it will all work out." If the world wasn't a nuclear wasteland, this loony twat would probably be a very successful politician by now.

Since every one of these characters is a complete fucking idiot, this answer is enough to appease them. Life Bloom has no helpful comments at all; he just babbles autistically about how nice it will be to have the sun back, and of course takes the opportunity to heap fawning praise on ol' Mary Sue the Glorious Lightbringer™.

Anyway, with that out of the way, there's nothing else to do but hash out the details of how to gain access to the Single Pegasus Project, a feat which the best minds of Edgequestria have tried and failed to do multiple times. Fortunately, LP has a plan for that as well.

Like all of her plans, LP's strategy is so simple an idiot could have devised it. She plans to hit the base really hard and really fast with a front-on attack. Her party is of course, ridiculously outmatched in terms of both numbers and firepower, and the chances of this working, even under the most favorable conditions, are pretty much zero. So, Calamity's reaction to it is perfectly understandable:

>“Ah surgical strike,” Calamity suggested, pondering. “Could work. Assumin’ ya c’n find a way past the two shields.”
Well, in his defense, this idea really isn't that much stupider than any of the other ridiculous stunts they've pulled over the course of this ridiculous, ridiculous story. So, what the hell; let's just get this shitshow on the road already.

Anyway, the hellhound, whose accent I already hate even worse than Calamity's, suggests that they enlist the aid of one of his comrades. The name of this character is unironically "Fluffykins." However, if they wish to procure the services of Ms. Fluffykins, they will need to bust her out of the clink first. It seems she was a test subject in some kind of secret Enclave experiment, and she has superpowers probably, and she hates pegasi, and yada yada yada, I'm already falling asleep. At any rate, it looks like we've got another goofy side-mission lined up before the main event.

Speaking of goofy side missions, it seems that before they go running off to single-handedly assault a heavily armed military base in the sky, using only their arsenal of small arms and someone named fucking Fluffykins for crying out loud, LP wants to escort all of the nameless NPCs she rescued to Junction R7. You may or may not remember that Junction R7 is the super-rad base that LP took over from Gawd like 40 forevers ago and then never returned to. Once they get the details of that hashed out, Velvet pulls LP aside for a private chat.
I was joking with the Twilight/Batman thing, I know they fight for more than just the homes they live in. They fight for ideals and that is represented beautifully when the heroes who work together face flawed villains who mistreat their underlings or flawed alliances of villains. Friendship good and evil bad, it feels weird to compare a story written by an "adult" for "adults" and point out what they lack compared to kids shows.

There have been heroes that start with an inherently selfish goal like "retrieve someone who doesn't want to be retrieved so I can get my old life back" but then they grow as a result of new stimuli and life lessons and bonds made with others. They choose new moral missions like "Help this person gets where he truly needs to go no matter what" or "protect this person my old bosses wanted me to retrieve".

LP never goes through the kind of transformative character arc necessary to go from "I'll get Velvet back home and then everything can go back to normal!" to "Velvet and I will change this world for the better no matter what!" and so her character fundamentally doesn't work. Kkat wanted her "perfect" from day one so she's already peak murderhobo despite some grumbling or an odd moment of nerves or vomit here and there. But he didn't understand heart, or the heart of character.

Kkat doesn't understand enough about society and the death or birth of nations and laws to convincingly write about LP's deeds killing a bad society and giving birth to a new one. So we're just told to believe "Littlepip The Lightbringer, Wasteland Savior and Bedfellow of Edgelords" successfully took so many cruel influences away from the few ponies alive in the wasteland that only "kind" influences remain. Forget anything deep this story could say about society and the morality of using force to rebuild society vs letting thriving moral settlements that thrive due to their morality voluntarily form trade agreements and protect each other's interests and hire travelling heroes to solve problems only force can solve. No, this whole story was just a shooting gallery and now that the inherently evil enemies are all dead the remaining "inherently nice" ponies can enjoy life and do their part to fix things without any Raiders or Slavers or Alicorn cunts getting in the way. What a leftist view of the world, to believe that post-apocalytpic nightmares only suck for the inhabitants due to the actions of others, actions that can be undone with the murder of others.

Does the cloud covering maintained by Pegasi farmers prevent other races from farming? Just exterminate Enclave forces until you can take weather control away from them and use it to make your own "good" farms. Do Raiders feed on Trading Caravans? Just exterminate the Raiders as you would a RadScorpion infestation. Murder, murder, the solution is always murder to this blood-soaked pony with blood magic spells, and we're told she's morally superior to all the other killers in this hellhole because she tells herself she only kills "righteously".
As long as there is resource scarcity some will naturally want more. If society has no moral safe avenue for these people to get what they need (like becoming farmers) they will turn to crime. Authoritarian dictators like Red Eye might be able to promise his people full bellies and paved roads and a world without raiders but is it worth it if it has to be forced onto the world at the barrel of a gun held aloft by an Alicorn tyrant who's one third murderhobo, one third cyborg wannabe-dictator, and one third the worst villain Kkat could imagine: A racist food-hoarding Gwneral in charge of the local America stand-in hurting the "poor oppressed peoples" of the Edgequestrian Wasteland that's somehow supposed to also be the Middle East despite also being the ruins of a decadent failed-universalist failed-humanist American state that accepts drug-addicted drug-trafficking zigger rapefugee terrorists?

I wish Kkat found Fee.Org and youtube videos like Out Of Frame and Common Sense Soapbox before writing this, and got over his leftist delusions so he could understand reality for what it is and reflect that better in his moralporn emotionalporn murderporn gorefic for whiny teenagers who think nothing's edgier than Pinkie Pie becoming a crackwhore or a Pegasus with a shotgun saying fuck.
Kind of a reference? but this side mission might exist just to reference the fact that the Enclave in Fallout 3 have a few mind-controlled Deathclaws (the monsters that Hellhounds are based upon) in their possession.
