I am not the original author of either Fallout Equestria nor any of its side stories.
Hello there, I'm JohnConquest1. Not my real name but I don't care to use that here. Call me John, I'll be friendly, I promise.
I primarily work on Fallout Equestria here. Currently I am the chief/only Fallout Equestria contributor on the site. Something I hope to change but after having made 25 pages, I can wait a little longer I guess.
I use the same username mainly, the r/falloutequestria subreddit (u/JohnConquest1), and on discord (JohnConquest1#9704). I also lurk the /mlp/ foe general threads from time to time.
I also lurk Jojo, and DCAU stuff on VSB wiki.
Feel free to message me if you have any questions.

My General Opinions on FoE
OG Fallout Equestria is the best fanfiction of all time in my eyes. It can be cited as (baring New Vegas) the best thing to come out of the Fallout Franchise in the past 10 years. Which is both impressive and sad. In any case, its a story well worth reading, thats filled with likable characters, motivations, and themes. It also sets itself up to be readily expanded on by further fanfiction/writers. Great read all around, it'll certainly subvert your expectations of what a crossover this ridiculous can be if handled proper.
Fallout Equestria: Project Horizons
Project Horizons gets extremely wacky and can be an outright mindfuck at times. ESPECIALLY WHEN CHAPTER 33 ROLLS IN. The warning I have at the top of the PH section is no exaggeration, as anyone whos read it will tell you. With that in mind, it lends itself to a lot of annoying problems revolving around its protagonist. Many of which she shares with Shinji from NGE. I'm not as annoyed by how many tonal shifts or nose dive in quality the story takes but I can absolutely understand why people decide to drop it at certain parts. Comparing it to NGE as far as wacky psychological metaphors goes isn't exactly out there, wrong, or even necessarily a chide against it. Just a warning for the kind of writing you're in for. If you like NGE, you will like Project Horizons. However you will also by virtue come to see its flaws, be it pacing, character staleness, or the fact that it devolves into a shonen battle manga disguised as a FoE story.
Also 1.8 Millionish word Fanfiction with supplementary sequel stories pushing the overall story past the 2 Million word mark. Shits really long and makes maintaining character stats a nightmare.
Fallout Equestria: Pink Eyes
The lightest major spin off story. Has almost nothing to do with the previous two and is its own, short, sorta self contained story. I really enjoyed it, especially its overall tone, surrounding its protagonist.
Fallout Equestria: Murky Number Seven
The closest of any of the side stories that feels like a more natural expansion of the world from an entirely new perspective. I regret not reading it in full until very recently but of the big stories this one captures the feeling of the original the closest while also offering its own spin and overarching narrative on fate and freedom. The cast has entirely relatable arcs, motivations and depth to them that make them entirely multilayered when adapting events from the original story in mind. Out of all the spin offs this one rates high, though there are times where it drags on occasion, and spends too long hammering in certain plot points.
Fallout Equestria Remains
Not a book I know but f**k you, not dicking around here, go f**king play Remains right now if you love roguelikes and Fallout. Best game ever made on Adobe Flash by f**king far and makes Bethesdas 3D Fallout stuff look like abominations.
Personal Fallout Equestria reading order
These are just my opinions at the end of the day but considering how many times I've exposed myself to Fallout Equestria materials I feel confident in sharing this to newbies. I'm also gonna throw in a word count for each story so people I show this to have a good idea of what they're getting into. This isn't exactly a tier list for my favorite stories, just my preferred way of guiding newbies into the series.
My recommended reading order:
- Fallout Equestria by Kkat (620,000 words)
- Depends on what you want:
- Heroes by No-One (582,905 words) (By virtue of not being the next entry I plan to read eventually, but the last spot(s) warrant being read last.)
- Project Horizons by Somber (1,780,334 words)
Project Horizons has two ongoing canon spin offs to its lore. Only read these after finishing Project Horizons. Otherwise you'll be completely lost on whats going on.
- Homelands by Somber (426,436 words as of May 15th, 2021) (Starts/Set 6 months after the events of Project Horizons Chapter 77. Stars PH secondary character Scotch Tape.)
- Speak by Heartshine, Supervised by Somber (258,096 words as of May 15th, 2021) (Starts/Set 9 years after the events of Project Horizons Chapter 77.)
- Total Word Count for PH stories: 2,464,866 Words
Pages I've worked on the most
- Littlepip (Remains)
