Let's see. Good description, well-written, funny, and it's a genre I love. Take your like, follow, and fav. You've earned them.

AW SHIT SON.

An excellent and involved story very much a tribute to Marlowe, I personally liked the pulp detective style a lot and you really have recaptured it perfectly in this.

#5 · Chapter 16 · 117w, 3h ago · · ·

Definitely got to check this out, I love Detective stories and wanted to do a Pony one of my own. :twilightsmile:

Love the character name and sounds ace! :pinkiehappy:

You're getting a lot of mileage out of the 'pencil in the mouth' gag, aren't you?

#7 · Chapter 16 · 111w, 15h ago · · ·

I couldn't resist the pull from the mention in the Blueblood stories. Fine story. Really deserves more likes and whatever.

Ohmygoshohmygoshohmygoshohmygosh :rainbowkiss:

This was amazing.

And the title suggests a series maybe? :pinkiehappy:

There is a sequel planned and partially outlined!  However, I'm currently sidetracked by an ongoing series of stories about everyone's favorite inexplicable royal, Prince Blueblood.  Once that's done, though, I do plan on getting started on "Looking Glass, P.I: Savage Nights."  Griffons, changelings, gang wars, and more freakin' politics.  Should be fun :pinkiehappy:

Please make this a series! I loved this one and would love to see more! You are a very talented writer. I hope to see more from you! :pinkiehappy:

I was taken in at the "Bellicose drunks" line. I can practically feel Marlowe in this. Definitely looking forward to reading this.

#12 · Chapter 9 · 105w, 6d ago · · ·

Hmm well Hot air is up to something. nobody's that helpful *suspicious face*

#13 · Chapter 1 · 104w, 5d ago · · ·

Looks good and Im looking forward to reading this. One thing I noticed; you said pony was xHands high. Was that intentional and referring to dragon hands? Or did you perhaps mean xHooves high?

#14 · Chapter 16 · 104w, 5d ago · · ·

That's... a tricky question.  "Hands" don't really exist in Equestria, but, "hands" is also the unit of measurement for determining a horse's height.  So let me just stroke my mustache and waggle my eyebrows mysteriously at you while I say something cryptic.

Ready?

Yes.  :moustache:

How is this still languishing at less than 400 views? This is criminal!

#16 · Chapter 16 · 88w, 1d ago · · ·

Thank you for the story!

Pretty good style and well written.

I'm looking forward for the sequel :)

I would say this story really struck the noir mood, though I didn't read enough noir to be allowed to say such things. :derpytongue2: Either way, from what I can tell, the mood was really enjoyable, the pacing felt right, and the editing was solid - although since I read the .txt file, I think I'm not too competent in this last regard. Since I'm not a noir or dark fan, I had my doubts (slight as they were), but fortunately you proved me wrong!

The only moment I would criticize is Nightingale sparing our hero's life. I mean, Looky already knew too much, and Nightingale could enact his plan herself, without his help. Or alternatively, if not she herself, one of her henchponies.

Also I would've kinda liked to see our protagonist ending up with his ex again, although I understand that noir is not a genre for knights in shining armor and happy endings. It still felt a little dissonant when he demanded for the safety of a mare he just met a few days ago, but not for her ex - but I guess he just couldn't forgive her. Kind of a shame.

What I didn't like, though, is the epilogue - I mean, obviously you wanted a sequel hook, but this letter felt rather out of genre. You could've just written an author's note or something, but the epologue made me feel that almost everything our hero accomplished (and consequently, the story itself) was sorta pointless. (Not to mention that the sequel never arrived. :pinkiehappy: Although I'd place my money on Nightingale being the changeling spy!)

I loved, however, the guns - horseshoes analogue. That bit was a nice touch!

Ahh, the old Guy Noir style. XD

Pony gives chance?

Pony gets jumped.

So bankers are evil... I have noticed a trend in your stories.

#23 · Chapter 15 · 62w, 3d ago · · ·

And I read the Prince series before this... :)

Good old-fashioned emoticons.

Wow, Crown was an IDIOT. Hadn't he ever read the Evil Overlord List?
