Hippocratic Oath


I love reading, running, and traveling. My goal is to heal others; Trauma is my Trade ~ let’s get you back in the fight!

Things used to be so simple before Autumn shifted, before she knew what she was. As she goes on her journey she will meet many different creatures. Some will be friends and others will mean to do her harm. Can a Canis Equus ever have a happy ending despite being something other ponies deemed a myth, a monster?

Canis equus? What is that?

10157672
Werepony it’s the Genus words for both wolf (Canis) and horse/ponies (Equus). Sorry for the confusion, :facehoof: hopefully you were able to enjoy the first chapter despite that and I’d love to hear your thoughts. :twilightsmile: Side note I went back and fixed that extra N in Canis sorry it was a typo. :derpytongue2:

i love the buildup sofar very suspenseful. :pinkiehappy: can't wait to see the next chapter and how it plays out.

Thank you for commenting feedback is always great to hear!:pinkiehappy: I’m glad you’re enjoying the build up of the story so far I’m hoping you’ll continue to enjoy the story as we learn more about Autumn and her life :raritywink:

Loved this chapter. Can't wait to see how they spin the tail to the teacher

Thank you for commenting, and I’m glad you enjoyed the chapter! :pinkiehappy: Hehe yeah they’re all pretty busted at this point... If there was anything you liked or noted feedbacks always appreciated but here’s hoping you’ll love the next chapters as well :raritywink:

Thanks for the credits, really appreciative of that!

10182916
No worries, you’re putting in the work and will always give credit where credit is due! Thank you for the good work and I hope to use your editing stylings again soon :raritywink: Cheers!

Tuner, YOU IDIOT! YOU DO NOT OUNISH THE VICTIM!

10250583
Sadly most of the time when you do defend yourself you get in trouble as well :ajsleepy:

10251501
whgich is a problem. just because our schools are stupid doesn't mean Equestria's should be

10251549
Fair Point, however you also see Diamond Tiara and even Babs Seed get a away with a lot when they bullied the CMC. On a side note... how are you enjoying the story so far?

10251554
Overall interesting. And that could be Cheerilee's incompetence.

10251805

Glad to hear you're enjoying it so far, hope you'll enjoy the next chapters. And For real:rainbowlaugh:

okay if these Crypt Hunters are against the law. TELL THE COPS!

10262247
And if the cops are payed off? :ajsmug: no worries good point but the law may be old, or only apply to ponies... sadly not all laws were made for the Benifit of all races... *cough cough* Jim Crow

10262292
A lot of lore will be explained next chapter, going over why that law came to be, who’s under its protection, why there are wereponys (lycans/werewolves) and possibly other races :raritywink: and why no pony seems to realize that these creatures live among them. But not for nothing it was great you picked that up if you’re down to proof read I’d love to work with you seems like you catch small details well! :raritystarry:

10262309
Grammer wise I suck but ideas I am pretty good. As is I can see Autumn's dad going to the cops about him and why he and his daughter are under threat because their ear tufts are enough for these crazy ponies to go after them

10262363
Fair point so is mine, thus I work with an editor RandomGuy101 :pinkiehappy: does great work and has fixed up a few prior chapters. And you’re right on the tuffs but even assassins need to be sure of their targets, and when your on the run you may do a few things to fly under the radar...but seriously if you’d be down to proof read or wanna run some ideas I’m down to collab or I may look towards the proof readers. Anything to make a good story better :twilightsmile: (or at least readable :rainbowlaugh:)

Keep it going. I can not wait to read the next chapters.

10300745
Thank you so much for reading, I’m glad you’re looking forward to the next chapters! I hope you enjoyed the origin of the children of the night :twilightsmile:

...welcome to the United states public education system...

If the main OCs in this story were voiced, what would they sound like?

10408478
That’s a great question thanks for commenting :twilightsmile: Sugar Beet would sound like Kala from Tarzan with a more Appolosian/southern accent. Shadow Snare would have a voice similar to Mufasa rolling like thunder, deep but not unkind his voice no real accent (normal ponish?) and Autumn sounds like Junipher Lee when I imagined them. If there are others you want to know about let me know and I’d love to hear what you think so far... this is my first attempt at a multi chapter story and though it’s rough any feedback is helpful

Glad to see that this story is still alive, I really enjoyed the new chapter and can’t wait to see more.
Hopefully a lot quicker than this chapter. Keep up the good work.

10412094
Me too, I’m glad you liked the latest chapter and with any luck I’ll get another chapter out sooner :applejackconfused: life willing. Thanks and Until next time Cheers! :raritywink:

“Sometimes seeing is believing for a ponies little one,” said Shadow as he watched as his daughter’s eyes continued to follow him as he turned to face the mares in front of him. Shadow took a deep breath as he began to shift, an intense pain ran through his body like an old friend. Shadow’s fur grew thicker as his eyes turned bright scarlet, his jaw broke snapping like a rotted branch before reforming five inch fangs sprouting from his mouth as he breathed deeply, clenching the muscles in his barrel to aid the transformation.

First part doesn't sound right.

“Any who left or tried to leave… were said to have been put to death…eventually Nightmare moon was defeated, and she was banished. Though to where we do not know… some say she became the night sky…we were finally free of Nightmare Moon’s corrupted power. But we cryptids were labeled as traitors, monsters and freaks. Though many were captured during the last battle and locked away legends say that the remaining creatures of the night had managed to escape.

Nightmare Moon.


There is another in there but I lost track of it.

Thanks for giving my story a read I’ll go make those corrections. Hope your enjoying it and if you have any other thoughts I’d be glad to hear them Cheers! :twilightsmile:

Hi from a new reader! This story has a fluffeh foxies' approval, I do love Autam!! And anticipating new chapters!! Keep up the good work!

10525513
Thank you so so much for reading my story!! I’m glad to hear you love Autumn and new characters will be joining this Tale soon. Though life has been crazy :applejackconfused: and I haven’t been able to write it makes me happy to know that there are still people reading my story :rainbowkiss: I do plan on continuing this story and hopefully will have a new chapter out in the coming months.

I don't trust the "rookie" any more then he spoke .

10596512
:ajsmug::raritywink: Guess you’ll have to wait and see what happens, and thanks for checking out this story and your comment! I love feedback Cheers! Hope to see it in future chapters. :rainbowkiss:

10596661
If I find a scenario I feel warrants a comment, I shall.

10596684
Well here’s hoping to see more of your comments in the future *spike salute* :moustache:

why the hell would the cops come in the MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT to ask those questions.

10598820
If someone with rank/money/influence sends someone there they’re going to comply. Also not everything I’d as it seems. :twilightsmile:

This is a great setup. I cannot help but think things will go sideways before Autumn gets her explanation, but I really hope that's not the case. The trope that often would happen here likely also involves those skin-wearing stallions and would leave Autumn an orphan. I do hope that isn't the case, though, as it is rare that a protagonist still has caring and supporting parents.

Escape Clause and Silver Tongue also strike me as important, rather than just bit the players in Autumn's childhood. Silver's magic being green and the story having a certain tag makes it seem likely that they have larger parts to play.

Hmm...this is a different turn than expected, but it almost certainly still involves the stallions Tales accidentally ran into.

Shadow doesn't know it since Autumn couldn't tell her story yet, but Tall Tales will definitely be asking questions about his friend, and his parents will likely hear from him first. As bards, they almost certainly know the werepony legends, so I kinda think bringing that whole family in on the secret may be necessary. While having others in the know does increase the chance of discovery, it also provides a haven and safety net.

Not that they're likely to stay unknown if Silver Tongue finds his buyer anyway... And as sleazy as Escape Clause seemed, I have to hope that he would be angry at his son for that. He seemed to know more than he let on before, so he may be involved with that law Shadow briefly mentioned in his narration.

Sorry for the late reply, but I’m so so glad that you’ve been making so many great comments and I do hope you’ll continue to enjoy this story though I’ve gotten a bit busy with life I do plan on continuing this story and hope to put out more chapters hopefully soon :twilightsmile: I agree that building a safety net is important and you may be right about them being able to help :raritywink: but it may be in a different way then you expect. As for Silver Tongue he’s not the one selling them out it was a sleazy unicorn janitor in the hospital but his father Escape Clause and him will have more parts to play as well. Though I wonder whether you got the thought on green magic :twilightsmile:

The pelt wearing stallions are part of something that may be revealed soon. But I can’t wait to hear what you think of the other chapters Cheers!
