Finally, here we are, Chapter 6. Sorry about the wait, I ran into some issues with the chapter I was working on (I'm working a number of chapters ahead) not wanting to sort out properly. But I got it all ironed out, and I can finally release this here chapter!
This chapter has a meta moment or two, as well as having a few darker than usual moments in it as well (Don't worry, It's still an adventure fic, not a grimdark fic). Clockwork's dream sequence is, as I'm sure some of you guessed, a homage to Fallout: Equestria and is littered with symbolism. As for the meta-moment, it's Clockwork mentioning how she almost wrote a fan-fic about the world. This is actually very true, I almost did write a FoE fanfic... but "A New Breed" happened, so instead of sitting around as some insanely popular (or, more likely, long forgotten) side-fic writer for FoE, I wrote A New Breed to try and explore the untapped (at that time) potential of super-hero ponies. Sometimes I second guess that decision, as New Breed never quite reached any real level of success beyond a small core of rather rabid fans.
Offside, I know some of you were expecting/hoping for some Sam Fischer antics from Flourish again, but I opted to focus more on Filigree and her perspective to solidify that side of the story. I apologize for those who feel gypped out of their stealth action fun...
Anyway, this is chapter 6, enjoy!
And as always, comments and critiques are welcome and encouraged.
