Live at peace with all men, and carry a long sword that all men may live at peace with you.


This story is a sequel to The Painless Murders

Being a detective on the Canterlot Police Force was exactly where I was meant to be. When that was taken away from me, I started down a path that was not likely to end well. Then I found a unicorn filly lost on a rainy night. I was less than enthusiastic, but I couldn’t just leave her. The search for who she belonged to sent us down a path more dangerous than I would have thought possible. The destination would change the course of both of our lives.

This is another in the spin-off series from The Quicksilver Chronicles featuring the private investigator Dark Steel.

Please dont be a sad story

Glad you are getting this posted. I’ll ask a few folks if they can promote this story in their blogs.

I smiled and nodded. “That’s good. I’m glad he was able to escape this place. But I really gotta go. I got a date with a filly.”

*inhales* *exhales*
Me to brain: don't you dar- oh fuck you!

I think you'll find it a bit of a rollercoaster ride.


Me to brain: don't you dar-

True. My stories are wholesome. So, no, don't go there.

Surely I can promote this story

I like it. Eager to see where it goes.

If there's one bkc's story I really enjoyed editing, it was this one. There were some bumps here and there, sure, but there were also large sections where I could just recline and soak in the emotional atmosphere. I like when that happens. Not because it means less work for me, but because it clearly shows the author enjoyed writing the section in question and cares about it. If you're wondering whether or not you should read this story, give it a chance and read it. That is, unless you're afraid of reading about cute filies and dark mysteries.

I loved the alchemist, and I love this story

Better this than a changeling foalnapping

I’ve seen many of your stories over the years but I’ve never bothered to properly read one of them until yesterday, gotta admit I was missing out for a good long while. Now though I’m definitely going to have to read through everything.

I'm glad you're enjoying it. We got three chapters (plus a tiny epilogue) to go. Hopefully, you'll enjoy some of the other stories too.
