Raven’s Jig – Fallout Equestria

What if the post-nuclear context of hit video game Fallout was transposed to a universe such as My Little Pony’s Equestria? This creative clash between two drastically different universes was imagined by Seventh Element, and was at the origin of his album “The Ministry Mares” which would follow some time later.
