My name is Screwloose. I'm a mental patient and resident of Ponyville Hospital mental ward. A construction accident permanently danged my brain. That was at least the case until the megaspells fell. Locked in my padded cell and left to die as Equestria burned to ash in a storm of heat and balefire. The radiation changed me and gave me back my sanity. Here are the audio logs of my adventures after as I try to find out if my sister made it safely to a stable.
It takes place in many places across the wasteland during the first few weeks following the megaspells. It starts in Ponyville Hospital, but Screwloose travels to Canterlot, Appleloosa, and Manehattan during her travels.
The wartime events in the "native recordings" primarily take place in Ponyville Hospital. One takes place at a bar in Ponyville, one takes place at Dr. Cortex's house, one takes place in the Ponyville Park, and one takes place at Project Steelpony in the Hoof.
- Screwloose – formally a mental patient and resident of Ponyville Hospital. A construction accident gave her brain damage and the delusion that she was a canine and not a pony. This delusion mostly ended when the megaspells fell and she became a ghoul. Gifted with her sanity she escaped her cell and found the recorder used by her former doctors. On it she documents her experiences as she leaves the hospital and tries to find out what became of her sister and mother.
- The Recorder – the inanimate constant companion of Screwy in her travels. She uses it to document how she feels and what she is doing. It also contains a set of "native recordings" left by the doctors that formally tried to treat her. She believes her recordings are overwriting the native ones, but they aren't.
- Shoeshine – Screwloose's sister and closest person to her prior to her accident. Worked for the Ministry of Image during the war. Is presumed dead, but may have made it to Stable 1.
- Crowning Achievement – Screwloose's Mother. She is presumed alive in Stable 2, but is unconfirmed.
- Dr. Stable Rate – The first doctor to try to treat Screwloose since Screwloose. He is originally referred to as "Doctor Who" when introduced since Screwloose could not remember his hame. He was Screwloose's fiancé before her accident and was studying to be a pediatrics doctor. Following her accident he abruptly switched to psychiatry to help treat Screwloose. However he felt he was doing more harm than good and passed the case onto another more qualified doctor before switching back to pediatrics.
- Dr. Cortex – He is the second doctor to try to treat Screwloose.
- Vial – The corrupt Green-Med representative that takes control of Ponyville Hospital after the company buys it. Through forged documents he becomes Screwloose's 3rd doctor following Dr. Cortex's death.
Ponyville Hospital Nurses
- Redheart – The nurse Screwloose vaguly remembers hearing about Stables from.
Ponyville Hospital Orderlies
- Bedside Manner – one of the orderlies to tend to Screwloose during her stay at the hospital. He is also the pony to orally rape her each night at dinner time after feeding her for an unknown amount of time.
