Heroes: Hired Gun by Foreling Heroes: Hired Gun by Foreling
I wanted to play videogames but my brain was all like:
"Fuck that shit, draw Silver.... No don't start TF2! Don't join that server! Dont... Okay you asked for it... I will take away your motor skills for games, make you a noob! Muhahaha"

And then bananas happened.

So here is "Hired Gun" probably wanting to buck somepony in the head, tell Flare to shut up or make sense of grade-school mathematical symbols.
Either way I visualize her with this expression pretty often.

--
I caught up with PH and asked around for another good Sidefic.
Menti suggested Heroes and damn it's awesome. But now I caught up on that one too so starting with New Beginnings.

I swear I never have read so much in my life.

You see, the reason I love this picture of Hired is because for some reason I cant imagine her being as big as some of the other artists portray her as, I mean she is suppose to be a large pony but everyone draws her as this over the top monster pony the size of Brimstone Blitz from the Murky Number Seven side story. I just don't see that.....but I love how you drew her, its much more believable in my eyes :D

TF2 is amazing. Just sayin'. And yes, I do believe the general attitude of Silver is, "STFU before I break your face."

Aaw, Silver looks so sad. I guess that's just who she is though. Still love her though :hug:

Hey, if you're in need of more side-stories, might I recommend Murky Number Seven?
*totally not subtly trying to get you to draw stuff from my favourite side-fic*

It broke out of the side-stories for a reason, it's really funny reading about a character who is actually many times more dumb than Blackjack xD

started reading it. yes, hired is indeed not a clever pony. This is an appropriate depiction of the hulk of motherly mare that is hired gun/silver storm.

i really hope that the story ends happily for her and serenity...

Expression seems about right.
And I'm reading or have read 6 of those fics.
I'm also in a similar way, I never used to read. Then I found FO:E and that changed.
Also looks good.

Currently reading 4 now. On which I reached the last chapter of 3 of them. I'm kinda afraid I will keep doing this until I caught up with a dozen or so and then I'll have to keep up xD

Thank you.

From :iconfreeflyingwolf:'s list, Ditzy Doo Chronicles and Misfits are probably my next favorites.

I'd also suggest Salvage: [link]

It reads a lot like Heroes or PH, even if the plot itself hasn't developed like those two have (excellent writing, casual narrator).

(And I'm up to 14 of 'em myself. No regrets. ^.^

Then again, I do have about 90 minutes of bus commute each day to read on. XD)

Oh I have read the first chapter of Salvage already but I totally forgot about it. Perhaps I didn't think it was that interesting though, might have to read over once more.

Only Flankorage and New Beginnings.
I skimmed Misfits and Pink Eyes a bit tho.

But I'm definitely reading some of these.

All the same writing quality of Horizons and Fallout Equestria?
Be honest.
Reply
:iconfreeflyingwolf:
freeflyingwolf Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2012
No, not all of them. I admit that my friend writing World of Pain doesn't have the best grammar, especially using ending marks (.!?) and commas. I read it for his sake, even though my grammar nazi cringes and cries.

Others though, have a generally high quality and I find they are under-viewed.
Pink Eyes has a massive following, and it's done.
New beginnings and Misfits are about alicorns who have lost Unity, so it's a nice sort of refresher, like how Pink Eyes is about a foal who isn't some hardened wastelander--she can't even read!
Flankorage is set way up north and follows a male unicorn who grew up in a stable with a virtual reality simulator, like the one in Vault 112 from Fallout 3, and how a pony deals with the stark contrast between that and the real wasteland. He goes through some shit.

I could do this all day with each one.

Love this art, and here's a tip. Do you know sw1tchbl4de? Normally, any sidefic he makes coverart for, I read. And let me tell you, I'm never disappointed. Although I have read others, the ones that he covers excel the rest.
Reply
:iconforeling:
Foreling Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2012  Student Filmographer
I somehow know what you mean.
Sw1tch made so many coverarts that it somehow feels... more 'there' like it gets more presence in this fangroup.
I'm likely to read most of the ones he made art for, he has about the same taste in reading as I do.

Also Murky Number Seven and Best Served Cold are on my list.

And thanks :D

Woo!

I was hoping you'd do one of Silver. One of my favorite -- if not my favorite -- narrator. She's such a brick, but I love her dearly.

(You need to do Serenity now. Most adorable filly. ^.^)

Aaaah maybe! I wanted to do Flare too but I sort of forgot how he looked! (Blue with yellow/green mane? I think!)
