In a forgotten suburb in a forgotten town rests a small underground shelter that weathered the hellfire and brimstone that greedily swallowed up the lands. In the years since life as Equestria once knew it vanished, it has kept its sole occupant safe from the destruction the great megaspells carved in their wake.
But nothing lasts forever. This lone survivor is forced by his own folly to leave the home he'd known for so long, and reenter the husk of the world he left behind. Unlike many who ventured into the scorched earth above, however, he had long prepared for the wasteland that would meet him.
But could anyone truly be ready for the end of the world? Or will the hell that followed with it consume him like it has so many others?
