"For all who thinks that war in Equestria is acceptable."
Well, Equestria has a standing and professionnal Armed Force, right ? So they're bound to get action, sometime.

sometimes we should remember that sad things still happen. Just to appreciate the good things we still have.

I feel sorry for him.

He has to live on, even after the end. He has to keep the memories of his family in his mind for as long as he could, because in a way he could make up to them for his lateness by giving them the only life he can possibly give.

His predicament reminds me of Randall Clark from Fallout New Vegas, the survivalist who holed up in Zion National Park when his world came to an end in a nuclear holocaust.

He tried suicide for years but didn't do it, despite having lost his family and everything else, believing that living as long as he could and keeping his memories of them is the only way he could atone for not being there for them when they died in atomic fire.

He did however leave behind a meaningful legacy in the form of the Sorrows tribe, whom he protected and looked after, from a distance, when their ancestors (a band of children) arrived at Zion valley in the last years of his life. He died considering them a gift to him after years of loneliness and failure, being able to behold innocence, and he is remembered by them as the Father of the Cave, figure of their mysticism and worship. His story in the game is one of the best tales I have ever read.

I've played the Honest Hearts addon. But I never noticed the resemblance between the Survivalist and this character. That's... quite interesting.

Yeah, only knew it myself when I caught it on Tvtropes page and then the Fallout wikia before I actually played the add-on. Made an effort to find all his entries and all his gears.

His terminal entries was what made me decide to side with Joshua Graham and wipe out the White Legs. I couldn't let his efforts go in vain; Zion belongs to the Sorrows and the Dead Horses. Though I did make an effort to convince Joshua not to kill Salt-Upon-Wounds.

"I must remember you alive…
Sorry for being so late…"

By god, I've never felt this depressed before, especially by a picture. The detail, art style, color, word choice… it all creates a huge impact upon my heart and conscience. This is by far the most influential art piece for my feelings that I have come across so far. Good job, you brilliant bastard.

It’s really sad, dark, and yet very well done, and emotional. You have a nice art style. Very good job on the background, characters, and details.
The doll next to the smaller skeleton especially tugs at the heartstrings.

this kind of flipped the tables.
the only thing worse than being killed in the ramy is to loose your family in the army.
you know you could have protected them, but you failed. THAT is painfull

You are wrong. Her mane doesn't look like Octavia's, and Octavia's cutie mark looks different. Besides, there are remains of a broken piano on the background, not a violin.

Ok, i knew it was a far shot.
You know what would have been epic? If you made a fan-fiction out of it.

Not really sure who i pity the most. the soldier or the family. i think i have to go for the soldier, simply because he have to live with the memories until the day he dies.

You're right, sometimes I want to write a sidefic in FoE setting, and this scene would surely be included to the story, - but I'm too lazy to think over all the plot and the dialogues. Futhermore, even if I make it- it would be written in Russian, so you won't be able to read the story ;)

You actually gave me some inspiration for a story i am working on. It will take a long time before it is out, so we will wait and see.

I don't think war is ever acceptable. Which is why it's important to make stories about it that shine light on the horrors that soldiers have to see on a daily basis. One should never have to come across a scene like the one above in real life.

That said this is an amazing work of art that really draws the emotions to the surface. Not sure if this was meant to be a Fallout Equestria scene or if this was just a commentary on war in general but it is moving.

i think people today are BLINDED from the facts of war, no thanks to all those war games.
No thanks to all those codded models with absolutely no emotions. The psychological horror behind it... it's..damn.. just... no words can describe it...

beautiful picture, by the way. ^^
