Fallout: Equestria - Pink Eyes is a completed side story of Fallout: Equestria written by mimezinga. It is currently the shortest side story, and it has its own page on Equestria Daily.
General informationEditFallout Equestria: Pink Eyes revolves around the adventures of Puppysmiles, an earth pony abomination formed from a Mark VI life support suit that was exposed pink cloud gases and a form of necromantic demonic possession. She has the mind of a five year old pony, retaining the memories of her life before her transformation. After nearly 200 years in suspended animation, her suit re-powered, allowing her to move and re-awake. Now Puppysmiles wanders the wastes looking for her mother, Rainy Days, as well as giving the inhabitants of Route 52 the one thing that was thought to be lost to the Wasteland forever: hope.
Pink Eyes is set mostly along Route 52, a pre-war highway. Multiple cities lie along the Route, populated by various tribes as well as a few factions from the original Fallout: Equestria.
Pink Eyes uses a combination of both Fallout: Equestria and Fallout Equestria: Project Horizons as canon for its setting. It never references the location of its setting in comparison to the other two stories, however, Puppysmiles has not encountered any cities from either story. The story also uses Fallout: Equestria - Heroes as part of its canon, referencing the NCA's borders being near Emerald Shores, which was referenced in Heroes as being renamed Nightmare's Fall, an event that occured at the conclusion of Puppysmiles journey.
Unlike the other FoE works it references, Pink Eyes often draws directly from real world culture to flesh out the setting. Location names and phraseology are often drawn from present sources. Examples of this are; Salt Cube City (a reference to Salt Lake City), the common phrase 'can has' (drawn from internet meme culture), and references to the Powerpuff Girls.
The story also borrows elements from other video games beyond the Fallout universe for many elements of the overall story and setting. Some of these integrated elements include Security Setinels that say "Stop right there criminal scum." This is a reference to the Elder Scrolls games made by Bethesda who also made Fallout. Then there is the A.I. SolOS and Stable-Tec's rival Solaris Inc., both of which bear many similarities to GLaDOS and Aperture Science from the video game series Portal by Valve. A location that is also mentioned in the story is Ivory Tower where a battle takes place between the factions of the Steel Rangers, which may be a reference to the multiplayer level 'Ivory Tower' from Halo 2 made by Bungie.
