Second Wind is an ongoing side story written by TinkerChromewire. It chronicles the adventures of Steelgraft the cyberghoul, and what few allies are willing to follow him. It takes place 100 years before the events of the main story in the ruins of Detrot. The story can be read on Fimfiction


When second chances are almost unheard of, one soldier that made the ultimate sacrifice will find himself in a world that moved on without him, seeking an end to his story with absolution. Oaths are sacred and promises must be kept--Even if they don't matter to anyone else but the dead. Also, friendship.

Second Wind follows Steelgraft, an undead cyberpony called a deadmare, as he combats raiders, wastelanders, and terrifying monstrosities not unlike himself. Centering around the area of Detrot, this story takes place 100 years before the events of Fallout: Equestria.
