In Saint-Celest, a vast and thriving city not too far from San Francisco that has known incredibly fast growth since the arrival of ponies in the human world, anything and everything goes down in its streets.

First of all, special thanks to C Note for proof-reading and editing the chapters of this story. Many clumsy mistakes were avoided thanks to him. You rock, buddy. Also, special thanks to Conicer on DeviantArt for providing this story with a great cover picture.

All feedback is welcome.
