X-Com didn't know it yet but they had finally found the thing that would end this war in their favour and humanity its greatest friends.

The Etherials knew only that these two new species had taken a step closer to ascension.

Best picture I've seen in a while! Well done!

This picture, and the linked story, are pretty much single-handedly responsible for me now having a fimfiction account.

Any chance to get a higher resolution to use it as a wallpaper? :D

Twilight doesn't possess the secrets of psionic powers, silly humens.

You know what's worse?

humans discover magic.

Wizards are more deadly than psykers.

Who cares? I never played X-Com:EU, but in original UFO:EU most interrogations were done for lulz, because they awarded no practical benefit, just some fluff text.
MuddyFudger Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, I know that. The original is the only game I can play on the PC, and I still get bad frames. Though I have played the new version and it is shit, skillwise since it relies entirely on luck. It's essentially a $20 board game.

And anyway, that's called the lore. Don't be disrespektin' the lore, even of it is woefully lacking in scientific accuracy.
Necroant Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2013
I'm disrespecting the lore of UFO:EU? Ridiculous! I have a screenshot of every single Ufopedia page stored on my PC, and i filled the damn thing myself, with no savescumming and such. Also, i have the game itself installed, it still kinda sorta runs even on Windows 7 if you use UFOLoader.
MuddyFudger Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Heh. My PC struggles to run it.

Considering she can teleport, the possibility, nay, the inevitably that she will accidently find herself somewhere she would rather not be, is pretty much a forgone conclusion.


Imagine if the trolls from the previous generations where introduced as a alien advanced tech warmongering race.


The pony-vers version of Star Treks Klingons.


And using Tech to cancel Magic would be a great counter to pony powers.


War Tech Trolls versus Magical Ponies.


Ahhhh. The Possibilities.

This is pretty sweet! Great cover art for a great story!
GraffitiImp Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2013
Your pony art is (in my opinion) some of the best on the web. It always tends to convey a sense of dread, yet at the same time, whimsy.

how to interrogate twilight... put her in front of a library and burn it...

Twilight: *browsing library on Earth* "Ohhh, Fahrenheit 451? I wonder what this is about? Thermodynamics? *half an hour later*

This is absolutely stunning. I really should take a look at blue lighting sometime soon... it just looks so nice.
Lorventus Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2013
Thank you for making this, if you hadn't it wouldn't have shown up on EQD and if it hadn't shown up there I wouldn't have come across the fic it was commissioned for.

I have been on a huge X-COM kick lately, and it is all pretty much because of the fic this picture is based off of.

nice and gloomy, the light effects are really well done
TLSpark Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013
Color me impressed.

I don't play XCOM, but I know a good crossover when I see one.

I had to dust off the ye olde Deviant Art account so I could properly give my compliments to the artist.  I love this little bit of art to death (its now my desktop wallpaper, and it may end up as cover art for Stardust!) and I can't compliment it enough.

This art came as a welcome surprise from a fellow author, and it made my day.  Seriously.  Entire day ear to ear smile. 

Keep up the good work, man!

Dr. Vahlen is going to get a shot in the head.
Loyal2Luna Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
You think this is bad... Vahlen later 'yells' at Twilight. She actually YELLS at our Twilight.
You wanna see what happens? Go read the fic. XD
moonlightavenger Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013
Of course I'm gonna read the fic! XD
I'll just try to find a way to get Vahlen killed next time I play XCom EU. XD
Dylinismus Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013
I opted to read the fic.
It was great and I'm thrilled for more.
MoppyPuppy Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013
I love this premise. Not XCOM, just Twilight being captured and interrogated.
You know about "Xcom: Enemy within"? It comes soon. I saw a trailer on the gamescon 2013.
Project Horsehead
"Commander, zhis species seems to; like the Thin Man, posses almost human traits, it is sentient and can infact speak, yet is both visibly more distressed at it's current position here in captivity. With all due respect, herr Commander, some of the research team, and myself included, almost doubt whether this.... unicorn.... is even part of the alien invasion. Such a proposition is distressing, given that it opens the possibility of other alien species being subject to these... invaders, and what lies in store for us, zhat cannot be good for morale. All the same, We will try to prevent this subject from expiring on us, it may wield more intelligence than what Shen's machines can probe from it's mind"

Considering the way the x-com program interrogates its subjects, I sure hope that Twi can teleport out of there.
Eakin3 Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013
You should read the story. It would have been a lot shorter if she couldn't.
GasmaskBrony Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I've got the story open now in fact and was about to start reading.

I LOVE this fanfiction!
bugsydor Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thought I recognized this when I saw it on EqD as art for one of my current favorite fanfics, and I was right!

A great pic to go with a great fic.
