A Wasteland of Possibilities by chibiBiscuit A Wasteland of Possibilities by chibiBiscuit
Hi folks!

So this month, despite my intents to finish that one picture that I feel like I keep putting on the backburner, I really wanted to do a picture based off of what has become my favorite game Franchise, Fallout - or more specifically, one of my favorite stories, Fallout: Equestria by Kkat. If you're not familiar with the work and have an interest in either of the universes, I highly encourage you to check it out! (Warning: Mature Content)

Now, while I don't think I'd ever actually have the courage to write this story or fully explore the concept in a comic (specifically because the wasteland is a dark and gritty place, and all I draw is fluff), I did put together a little backstory for our characters. (Besides, it took me hours just to write this little excerpt...)

Background
Found in the back of the reactor room by one of mares on the maintenance team, Tea's appearance in the vault was a strange one. Besides the fact that the purple-hued foal was mysteriously left in an off-limits area of the stable with no clue as to who her parents were or how she got there, the phenomenon was made even more mysterious by her horn, and the fact that Stable 104 was, and had always been, inhabited entirely by Earth Ponies. Still, the stable dwellers weren't the type to abandon a pony in need, so they did their best to raise her as one of their own.

It didn't take long, however, for the stable to realize Tea's other unique trait. As she got older, it became clear that the unicorn was growing faster than her peers. By the time she was 10, she was a head taller than her classmates. At 12, she was the tallest mare in the stable. She surpassed the height of most of the stable doors and passages by the time she was 14, and by 16, the only room she was able to stand up straight in was the large, cavernous atrium in the center of the stable.

After much deliberation, it was decided by the overmare and the councilponies in charge that the stable couldn't continue to support the unusually large unicorn. Besides the amount of resources it took to feed and clothe the burgeoning mare, it was clear that Tea's growth was accelerating. The mare had just celebrated her 18th birthday, and at this point was so massive that almost none of the corridors in the stable were able to accomodate her size. The council was concerned that if she were allowed to remain a resident for any longer, she would become too immense to fit through the stable door leading to the surface, at which point there would be no solution.

A plan was hatched, and Tea was presented with a mission: The water talisman that purified the water supply was decaying, and without a replacement, the stable was running on borrowed time.  Tea, of course, accepted the mission, and promised to venture to the surface and find the magical talisman.

Among the vault's other inhabitants was a small Earth Pony by the name of Cee Biscuit. Unlike Tea, it seemed that Cee's only remarkable quality (apart from his short stature) is just how unremarkable he was. Cee received a ruler as his cutie mark at a young age, and while many of his peers joked that his talent was simply 'being short', the ponies on the council simply assumed it had something to do with engineering and assigned him as an apprentice to the maintenance team.

Cee was one year older than the amazonic purple unicorn who occupied the seat next to his in the cramped schoolroom, and despite their differences, the two became good friends. Even after Tea grew too large to properly attend class, Cee made a point to visit her at every available opportunity.

Tea hadn't expected any company on her journey, but Cee was waiting for her in front of the vault's exit, duct-taped rifle in hoof. Neither knew kind of world they would find on the surface... But as long as they had each other's companionship, as long as they had each other, there wasn't anything they couldn't do.

S.P.E.C.I.A.L.
Tea
Strength:     10 (+4 due to size)
Perception:     2 (+1 from glasses)
Endurance:   10 (+4 due to size)
Charisma:       8
Intelligence:    4
Agility:            1
Luck:              2

Cee Biscuit
Strength:       2
Perception:     4
Endurance:    4
Charisma:      2
Intelligence:   4
Agility:           4
Luck:             8
Anyhow, hope everyone out there in the wastes is having a good time! Keep your boots tight, keep your gun close, and die with your mask on if you've got to.

I love how long her neck is. You could dress her up like a giraffe and i wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

She does have a mighty long neck... and long legs, and pretty much long everything. She could probably compete with a giraffe in a height contest. ^_^

Sorry for the delay, the holidays and the following week were a bit of chaos. ^^;

The reason I'm hesitant is I have my own idea for these two that I'm actually planning on exploring, and I don't want to inadvertently create conflicting plot points or character traits by having them portrayed in something as deep as a game before I get the chance to follow through with my own plans. I hope you understand, I'm sorry that it's not the answer you were looking for.

But Biscuit, how tall is Tea to be exact?

chibiBiscuit Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, if we're using standard measurements, she'd be about 10'4", but it's best to just guesstimate her at about twice the average pony size. :)

I've seen these two OCs of yours blow up a bit online in terms of popularity, even my friend's posting a lot of about the two on G+. So here's an idea: I'm planning on having a zombie videogame series with the eighth game having the 8 main characters needing to go to a Fallout Equestria to help out an old friend. And in this world, there are no Vaults, just Bunkers. You fine if I have your two OCs have a form of cameo in this eighth game as a small side mission to do called Investigate Bunker #104?

In the wasteland, everypony has to be prepared to fight when the need arises. That said, neither of us are very proficient. I have some small arms skill, but being an earth pony makes firearm management difficult. Tea... Well, there aren't many weapons that are big enough for her to use properly. Most of the time, all she has to do is pretend that she knows how to fight to scare off raiders.

Well, he's a giant unicorn as well. He's very sociable and tries to use his size for good. He doesn't necessarily exist in the FO:E universe.

Hey chibi, do you think I can expect another height measurement soon? I doubt Takai has grown that much since last time, but hey, you never know 😉
P.s. Try writing a giant ruler on the floor, then you won't need the ladder!

Hey there!

You might have to wait a while longer, because while she's still growing, it's not enough to warrant a new measuring. ^_^

And I like doing the measuring while she's standing up, the challenge is half the fun! :D

I didn't at first to be fair, but I figured it was intentionally there for some reason. Most of the fan vaults I've seen have a meaning to the vault number. Then I remembered the latest hight reference pic.

Love this picture, lol I love the agility at 1  for Tea and 8 luck for Cee, which tells me that when she trips, he's going to be lucky enough not to be stepped on or tripped over on :P

Hehe, well I would figure Tea would have a lot of trouble moving around tight areas at her size, and Cee has to have something going for him out in the wasteland! Besides, he's travelling with his special somepony, that makes him the luckiest buck in the world. :heart:

LOL, cute!

Heh, Cee Biscuit has a bit of a cartoon sidekick vibe ^_^ 

Ooh, looking for a water purifier? Reminds me of the main quest from the very first game ^^

:iconchibibiscuit:
chibiBiscuit Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's what I was thinking of! I never got far in the first one, but I thought it would be a good starting point to take inspiration from (although I kind of doubt they actually needed a purifier, I think they just wanted a fetch-quest to get her out before she grew too huge. ^^;

Jackurai Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2015
LOL, yeah, I guess there would be a rationing problem if that happened ^^;

The first game was pretty fun. Took a whole lot of save files to pass it, though =3

:iconchibibiscuit:
chibiBiscuit Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, even at her current size rationing was becoming a real issue... 

And someday, I'm definitely going to have to go back and finish it!

That's quite true... They were legitimately worried about her literally outgrowing the stable (with them stuck in it) and eventually growing right through the roof!
