FoE: And the Spark Shall Cause the Sixth to Appear by arconius FoE: And the Spark Shall Cause the Sixth to Appear by arconius
SPOILERS HERE IF YOU HAVEN'T FINISHED READING FALLOUT: EQUESTRIA
.
.
.
.
.
Thus did the tale of the Stable Dweller come to its conclusion, the Lightbringer realizing her destiny and taking her place at the right hoof of the Goddess Celestia, to seek out the sixth Element of Harmony and bring hope to the shattered wastes. And in time, she would succeed.

But the story of the Equestrian Wasteland is far from over: though the radiation and Taint have been purged from Equestria, there are still many other problems to be solved. Fortunately the actions of the Stable Dweller have rallied many ponies to fight the Good Fight, and there are many more tales of their adventures yet to be heard.

It is said that war never changes, and that may be so. But nor does the power of friendship change. And Friendship... is Magic...


***

Wanted to do a big finish for 2011, and this seemed like the ideal choice what with the main FoE story finishing up just a few days ago. What a ride it has been.

I started really working on this last night around 6pm, and it wouldn't let me go until about 4:30am this morning, at which point I finally keeled over, woke up 6 hours later and finished the job. The main Photoshop file for this project was a whopping 1.4GB, with about 30 layers of inks, coloring and fancy effects; my computer wasn't thrilled about this, but was very nice about not crashing or freezing up.

In my personal headcanon I imagined Littlepip's appearance changing in the SPP's virtual reality to something a little more majestic, to reflect the fact that she's 3/5 alicorn now. I kind of pictured her as standing in for Luna now, and if ever there was a pony in the Wasteland who needs a friend, it's Celestia. :P

Life Bloom's appearance is my best guess based on a sketch from one of :iconjustmoth:'s drawings. I don't know if there are any other sources for him out there.

Man, I so wish there was a book or something that follows the adventures of Homage and Velvet, all the way to when all are found and the GoE is ignited.

I like to think Bottlecap makes a pretty good generosity. Save the wastelands through trade.

Though Charity can be generous at times, but her patients with certain people does put that to question...Especially with the pony that suggested her to Spike.

I like how Kkat leaves it open to speculation on the readers part and how other writers of side stories give little guesses about the elements.

When I did this I thought Life Bloom might be Magic; that was my best guess for what he looked like based on what I could find on the net.

If we accept PH as canon, perhaps Charity?

Charity is FAR from generous she tends to rip off people when she wants to such as Blackjack. She charges for things not gives them away. She is unkind to Caprice. In my opinion... Blackjack is more generosity. To me she is very generous giving ponies a second and even third chance to do better, forgiving over and over again when ponies don't deserve it. THAT is a form of generosity. I dont feel generosity is about giving items! You can be generous in mind and spirit and it's FAR more powerful.

No it wasn't. PH was approved by Kkat as a high quality side story to get its own page on EqD and no, it's not canon. She never said that is was. The only side story ever confirmed as canon by Kkat was the clopfic, A Mare Worth Fighting For.

I'm pretty sure Blackjack is a sure in for Generosity. she literally sacrificed most of her body and humanity (equinity?) for thwe the wasteland. Besides, project horizons is as much FO:E canon as the original story!

Perhaps this will be one of my next projects. ;)

So. Many. Unicorns. I'd love Lifebloom to be the element of magic, but we've got two unicorns and two pegasi so I'm pretty sure the elements of magic and generosity are going to be earth ponies.

I really love the concept you have for Little Pip, the wings and helmet are going to be my headcanon now. I also love Homage's picture. All of it, it's just so cute!

I'm going by what's in the main story here. Magic was implied but never confirmed, and Generosity wasn't mentioned, which is why they're depicted as they are.

No, just from Equestria. Other surrounding lands still have radioactive zones, so the problems are only partially fixed.

And yes, though it isn't confirmed or denied, Life Bloom certainly is a good candidate for the Element of Magic.
