Chapter 45 Facepalm by ManiakMonkey Chapter 45 Facepalm by ManiakMonkey
Just read Chapter 45 of Fallout Equestria Project Horizons, overall it was a good chapter, but there wasn't necessarily anything of the characters I wanted to draw. Instead I wanted to draw my reaction halfway through the chapter.

Long story short, Blackjack is not a clever pony.

I laughed afterwards and wanted to draw this but still...

Not

A Clever

Pony

I had a similar reaction. Only in my version, face met desk.

hopefully P-21 will be able to explain why blackjack is so blase about it before she meets up with them.

Considering P-21 never agreed with how things went in 99, I don't think he'll bail her out, but who knows :shrug:

i'd like to think they've bonded enough that he wouldn't let her relationship crash and burn because of a cultural misunderstanding while he just sat by and watched, specially after her little speech to him seconds beforehand.

Yup, pretty much.
Well... not so much 'not clever' as 'possessing extremely warped values due to her upbringing'.

This is true, but it's not something you get over all at once. Like she said, it's progress.

Yes it is progress... that said nothing you should yell to the world about

Better she hear it straight away and have time to let it sink in and work itself out logically rather than her hear it later and explode emotionally when BJ is there.

That said, BJ's gonna get beat up. Bad.

I think that, after she beats Blackjack within an inch of her life, she'll realize that Blackjack is better now, having gotten over the whole "boat" episode.

That's the thing though. During the chapter Blackjack still had to resist hurting people over something as simple as a makeover. Therefore trying to prove to herself that she's better wasn't necessary if she still has moments of fear/hurt.

I wonder what will glory will do to styg when she finds out ,and the thing going on between lacunae and sugarbomb.

I think Glory will be more sympathetic to Styg's most likely

I think she's going to try and beat the stupid out of Blackjack, just like she did after she came back from her friendly visit with Spike. I feel like it'll be a thing until she realizes that Blackjack honestly didn't know any better. I feel worse for Stygius. She was his first time, and will undoubtedly feel weird when she acts like it was nothing big and encourages him to date Psycho.

And you honestly didn't feel like drawing that awesome statue of Stonewing? COME ON.

It was 3 in the morning and I have a cold, to be honest I'd rather draw Twist's picture of the Marauders that says "My Family" when I get the chance :nod:

Yeah, that would be a good one, too. There are just too many awesome moments in this story to draw them all.

That's our Blackjack! Just as naive about Wasteland relationships as she was when she first left 99!

I'd be really worried about Glory's reaction to BJ's broadcast if I weren't already so concerned over why none of them responded to her message, despite the fact they were paying close attention to the airwaves just a couple hours ago...

It's a lose lose situation the way I see it, since Glory is Fluttershy tier sensitive, but you know...has guns... she either heard the transmission and is going to be furious, or she missed hearing what blackjack said and will only be angrier when she finds out because no one told her!
