    New Story and News

    Hey guys! Jacoboby1 here! I'm fully recovered from my Wisdom teeth being pulled and I'm ready and raring to get things started with Noir. I'm back in college now, so I may not be as active as before. But hopefully, we can get some awesome stories uploaded! Aside from that, not a lot of other news, but just know that the story list is still in flux and isn't set in stone. Hopefully I can nail down the last 11 cases for Noir.

    News of what's ahead.

    Hey everybody, sorry there haven't been updates lately, I just have been caught in a total slump. With exams, school life, and well, life in general being an absolute pain, I haven't been as active in updating as I should have. So, I'd like to make clear I am making an effort to give out chapters as best I can. I do hope to see this case done, and done soon. But with finals, don't expect updates super quick.

    I was going to give a piece here about the season 4 finale, but I decided may as well say it's AWESOME and you all should go see it NOW!

    Anyways, that done, onto the news.

    1. There have been some comments going around about my references to Turnabout Storm, and people wondering if I will someday connect them. The answer to that is a big fat NO! I can't. For one, it would be me taking another person's work and at this point in the story, it wouldn't make sense to shoehorn in the events of another person's work into my own. I can't bring up the fact Phoenix defended Fluttershy because in Noir it's mentioned time and time again that humans are a myth. It just wouldn't make sense. Another thing, I have never been a fan of court shows, so I couldn't make a realistic trial story if I wanted to. So, with that out of the way.

    2. Shoutout to Sagebrony, that guy is just awesome for giving me side story ideas. If you guys read an awesome side story from here on, odds are it was one of his ideas. Good on ya!

    3. I do have a steam account, hopefully this link works http://steamcommunity.com/id/jakenas

    4. I will be moving away from the format of previous cases for season 2. Expect more adventures than mysteries at this point, with more emphasis on the overall plot. I just hope to get everything wrapped up nicely before my own finale!

    5. PLEASE! Stop talking about Raiden and Rainbow's falling out! It's really getting annoying on my part when that's all anybody seems to care about lately! It needed to happen for both character's to grow! So please stop talking about it!

    Now that my little vent is over...

    6. Anybody an artist out there? Still looking for one!

    7. I just, wanna say it's been an honor getting to know all of you. But, this has been a tough year for me and I feel as if I haven't been giving you guys the quality you deserve. By this point, I should've been done with the finale, but I'm only halfway...and not even that. Yet you guys have been so patient and understanding, that I can't help but feel blessed by everything you guys do. So, to commemorate, I will be taking suggestions as to what kind of blogs you'll want me to do, I'll do a week long series about any subject you guys feel can be touched on. I have a lot to talk about with this series. So, put in the comments below what you want to know, it can be personal questions about me, questions about the stories, continuity weirdness, just imagine I'm at a convention and you guys just payed for useless junk and want to hear me talk for a few posts. =)

    Hope you all had a wonderful day! This is Jacoboby1 signing off!

    News and Potential Spin off!

    Hey Guys, I am officially back from tour and will be writing more regularly, I apologize for not being frequent but life gets in the way at the worst of times. Now, I have some things I need to address.

    1. The next case will be on it's way soon, a largely Trixie focused experience so you know that'll be instant faved by Sethisto. (I kid, but you have to admit the guy needs a new best pony). I however, am curious as to any side story ideas you guys have, and hope you will put them in the comics.

    2. I am currently working alongside my good friend and fellow Fan Fiction Writer Incrediblewerekitty to make a slice of life Equestria Girls set of stories with characters from the Noirverse as a sort of continuation of Mirror Mirror. The plot will be written in the style of her Sour Grapes Chronicles and will largely focus on high school life and even some of the adults in the Equestria Girl's world. I do hope you will be willing to give this setting a chance as many of us have did and will enjoy what Kitty can bring to the table. So give her your support and I'll be around with a link when the story goes up.

    3. I would like to make a statement to everybody who's been hounding me wondering whether Raiden and Rainbow are going to get back together. The answer is-SPOILERS! I have a plan in mind for them so quit asking me when they will get back together, IF they get back together. So please, stop asking, it's not helping matters.

    4. With that out of the way I'd also would like to say a large part of the plot is finished in my head at this point. I still have an arc of cases I can do and hopefully you guys can squeeze in some ideas in these last 15 or so cases.

    5. For those of you wondering if you too would like to enter the Noirverse and take a character or group and write your own spin offs, contact me first. I am a big stickler for this and do want to make sure that anything cannon within the Noirverse is at least good quality. It's nothing against you guys, it's just a policy I adopted early on.

    With all of that out of the way, I think I said my piece for the night, and I will see you all, at the next case!

    Season 2 Second Arc and News

    Hey guys, really glad to have Case 10 done. I've been taking some time off to catch up with school. But, I'm about ready to kick things off again. So, let's get some news out of the way first.

    1. Sadly, Eliyora ran into some issues with her computer and won't be able to provide covers for a while. So, until further notice all stories will be uploaded without covers. If another artist is willing to come forward and show their work, I'd be happy to have them. But until then, you all will just have to have coverless stories.

    2. I'm officially announcing here and now, that Noir will end it's story at Season 2's finale. I'll have a sort of, Epilogue collection to tie things up with the other couples, but Private's saga is going to end with Case 25 of Season 2. Does that mean I'm going to stop writing? HELL NO! I'll still keep writing, but I want to complete the task of cleaning up Noir and putting all the edited chapters and stories in 'collections' in chronological order. I'll explain more of how it's going to work as we get closer to the end.

    3. Still looking for ideas of side stories, I am going to need them since I don't have strong plans for them like I do the cases.

    4. Speaking of Cases, here are the synopsis for the next 5 cases. ENJOY!

    Case 11: "On a Cross and Bullet"

    A mysterious killer known as the Black Widow has been targeting husbands who abuse their wives. Seen as a hero by some and a horrible criminal by others, the Black Widow's most recent killing has caused a lot of stir in Ponyville. While investigating Private and Twilight get into an arguement over the situation. To solve this, Cadence casts a spell on the pair of them that suddenly transforms them into Dusk Shine and Pruena Oculia. While learning how the other gender lives the pair have to get used to their new bodies before the Black Widow claims her next victim.

    Case 12 "Big top Fall"

    When an accident takes the life of acrobat Spindle Wire, Private is once again called to investigate. But when he arrives at the circus, he's met by Trixie. Turns out, this circus holds a lot of personal memories for her. The pair arrive and find that the circus is a lot darker than the bright lights would have you believe. Especially when Trixie vanishes mysteriously and a note is found: "If you want her to live, Kill the Ringmaster"

    Case 13 "Enter Nightmare"

    Something strange is happening in Ponyville. Nightmares are attacking ponies without end. Luna enters the dream realm to investigate, but is suddenly attacked by an evil creature of nightmare. Luna now lies in a coma, and if somepony does not save her from the dream realm soon, the Princess of the Night will surely parish. Private volunteers to enter Luna's subconscious but finds a lot more than he bargained for among Luna's dreams. Will Private be able to find and free Luna before it's too late? Or will another, darker being find him first?

    Case 14 "Hearts of a Feather"

    Private's Aunt sends him an invitation to attend the family reuinion for the first time in over a decade. Private's mother's side of the family has always been distant from the detective following Sparrowheart's death. Private and Twilight venture to New Orneighs and discover that all is not well for the Hearts. With Blueheart dying what little inheritence he has left is up for grabs. When one of Private's uncles is discovered dead, Private finds out just how broken the Hearts are...

    Case 15 "Manehatten Rain"

    Private's old high school of Elk Ridge finds out that a guest has mysteriously come up on campus. A young foal is found in a dumpster and evidence points to the mother being a student. Private returns to Manehatten and discovers the mother who claims that the father is a mysterious Bat Pony boy who lives on the streets of Manehatten's poorest district. But something else is going on here, as Private discovers that the young Bat Pony may actually be the one in trouble...

    So yeah, hope you all enjoy what I'm going to offer. Plus, for those of you wondering, my birthday is in 9 days as of this post. So, I doubt I'll do something special, just continue writing for all of you! Because let's be honest, I do it all for you guys, I would've given up a long time ago otherwise.

    Stay Pony everybody, this is Jacoboby1 signing off!

Amazing story! You've just earned a follower.

#2 · 118w, 8h ago · · · Epilogue ·

>>931014 Can you say Best Follower Ever!!!:rainbowkiss:

#3 · 118w, 6h ago · · · Epilogue ·

>>931057 Yes, yes I can. Best Follower Ever!!! :pinkiehappy:

#4 · 117w, 2d ago · · · Epilogue ·

This was pretty great! :yay:

#5 · 108w, 1d ago · · · Epilogue ·

That was indeed a great read! Although, I hate to say that I won't keep reading.

Not that I didn't find it interesting at all, hell, I had to find some type of song that would last more than an hour to accompany me while I read it. (Beethoven's 9th symphony, just incase your wondering, haha)

But being a writer myself, I have to continue writing my story! Darnit though, I just blew a solid hour and a half reading this.

Don't take it the wrong way though! That was an hour well spent! :twilightsmile:

I'm just stressed out that I haven't been able to find time for more than a week already to continue writing my story.... :raritydespair:

I've only been getting around a few hours everyday to myself, and I always blow it away by goofing off to relieve my everyday stress....

and I digress!!

Your story was overall fantastic, and I ate up every word. Thumbs up, 5/5, what other thing can I say? I feel as if saying "Good job" wouldn't do the justice.....right Big Mac?


Yup. Anyways! That was a very good read! Hopefully you could find the time to read my story sometime? :raritywink:

You mixed up the witness statements. Mac saw the shadow and Lyra felt the feather. “A witness will testify she saw a shadow flying out of the crime scene when the murder occurred. Also another will testify that he felt something land on his head as he left the scene. That something...was your feather”

Other than that I am enjoying this story very much as well. :pinkiehappy:

you do know big mac says eeyup not ayup? :eeyup:

Here was Princess Celestia, absolute monarch of all of Equestria and she wanted to give me an office, in Ponyville of all places.

Its a diarchy, can't forget Luna.

Unless she's not part of your world... If thats so then nevermind.

>>1736347People are still getting used to the fact that Luna is back. That and this was written a long time ago so errors are present

#14 · 97w, 23h ago · · · Epilogue ·

A little late to the party... but I saw number 16 on the front page and figured I'd better start with number 1.

The entire story was peppered with errors. Missing periods, to/too violations, missing spaces between words, at times it got downright messy.

Even so, I enjoyed the storyline. I guess I'm just a fan of this kind of story.

So yeah. Not bad.

#15 · 97w, 23h ago · · · Epilogue ·

>>1783682Before you go on allow me to explain. I didn't get an editor on board until case 11. You'll see a lot of errors simply because we haven't had the time to go back and fix everything. I apologize for the inconvience

#16 · 97w, 23h ago · · · Epilogue ·


Ah. Ok then.

#17 · 96w, 4d ago · · · Epilogue ·

Just finished this story in about an hour or so. I now feel that the next 15 book will be done within a week. You got yourself a fan! :raritywink:

Someone! Call the presses! This is NEWS!

#42 · 71w, 23h ago · · · Chapter 6: Revelation ·

Quick grammar check (Sorry, I'm a Grammar Nazi, but ... :twilightblush:)

Twilight spoke honestly “Pinkie we still need to know why Mandarin hired had Tangerio killed"

Main prob here is the part I underlined. A better way to say it would probably be "Mandarin hired somepony to kill Tangerio".

Also needs to have a comma after "honestly".

#43 · 71w, 23h ago · · · Chapter 7: Family Feud ·


Maybe the guy was writing this while listening to said soundtrack...

'filly recounted her tail'   Should be tale, as in story. Sorry. :D Loving it so far though, quite new to fimfiction. :eeyup:
