Past Sins Cover by Dreatos Past Sins Cover by Dreatos
Major kudos to :iconpenstrokepony: first of all for bringing me in on this project. Also some kudos to Batty Gloom.
And some kudos to the team behind the Past Sins printing project.
Edit: And some kudos to one of my own friends for helping out the image a bit here and there with her imput.

:D
:D:D:D:D
I have wanted to post this up for SOO LONG.
:D:D
:D

:D

The full resolution may never be unlocked!

WAIT WHAT IS THIS: [link]
I hope they go for another round of printing the book. I REALLY DO.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE IRL?

The word that properly describes my reaction to seeing this is plain and simply: AMAZAGASH.

That is now a word and a part of your own personal dictionary.

AND NOW I retire to my cave. I have stuff to draw and I actually feel like drawing for once. Something rare the last few weeks!

This description/image may be updated with more information as it reveals itself. Not even the great Sasquatch can be sure of this.

Yes the author PenStrokePony actually took the time to publish his fanfiction (at cost of publishing) for others to buy. Sadly I myself was unable to buy it when he did the first publishing. He told me he would be willing to do a second publishing if he got enough people setup to by the book.

Either I'm all over the Internets or you stalk me. Or neither. Regardless, your point?

:iconinnak:
Innak Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2012
What you said makes no discernible sense. What exactly is your point? You've never read Fallout: Equestria, so on what basis are you making a comparison? Or are you just using any opportunity to mindlessly lash out at it like a rabid dog?

For that matter, have you read Past Sins? Or any of the Twilight novels?

:iconkomatsuzaki-xingqi:
Komatsuzaki-Xingqi Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm sorry, I was being facetious. I need to remind myself that over the internet that's hard to tell.

I'm not comparing whether Past Sins (read it) or FoE (1st chapter only) is written better. I'd have to read all of FoE to make that opinion. No, my point was that FoE is filled with trashy stuff. Past Sins isn't. In my mind, PS is the best MLP fic because it's realistic and clean like the Show.

You could have just said that, instead of making a nonsensical comparison.

For that matter, you could have just complimented Past Sins. The picture has nothing to do with Fallout: Equestria and there was no reason to try to turn this thread into a soapbox for your dislike of it. Instead, you've done a disservice to both Dreatos and Past Sins, showing a considerable lack of respect.

Don't try to excuse being a troll as just "voicing your opinion".

Fortunately, I am not your mother. Do I sound like your mother? Did she try to teach you how to treat people with respect and kindness? Maybe if you learned that lesson, other people wouldn't feel the need to correct your bad behavior.

I liked it when it was like "No a vampire I'm so fucked." Not like "OMG a cute vampire I want him to fuck me."

I've never read the Twilight series, so I can't speak in condemnation or defense of it. But I can say that your above statement is off the mark.

The vampire mythology has always had a sexual element. Bram Stoker's Dracula presents us with a seductive monster. And one of the very first vampire stories (before Dracula or Nosferatu) was a horror tale of lesbian eroticism.

That said, this has nothing to do with Past Sins so if you wish to continue the discussion, we should do so in private and not hijack Dreatos' art thread.
