NOTE: Duck and Cover is not required reading for this story.
Atom Smasher is a special kind of pony. She lies, she cheats, she steals, she stockpiles explosives and relishes their liberal application, and she's one of the good guys. She earned the praise of the locals after becoming the accidental hero of the wastes around her home, but once the day is saved, being the hero is boring.
She needs a new adventure.
One day, a letter arrives, inviting her to join her brother in San Palomino on a search for their missing dad.
She doesn't remember having a brother.
It is, however, just what the doctor ordered. Now, if only this desert wasn't so damn hot...
A more serious look at Atom Smasher from Duck and Cover. Also being written at a less breakneck pace. Original by Kkat,
