Former "master thief" Sly Cooper had given up his old, criminal ways for good and settled into a new life with his love, Carmelita. But when an alien god of chaos spirits away and imprisons his lover and his friends, the last member of the Cooper Clan must take up his cane once again to get them back.

The deal is simple.

Come "willingly" to a peaceful, tranquil world populated by magical, colorful, talking ponies, and "acquire" six pieces of ceremonial jewelry in exchange for the release of his friends and the promise of a safe return to Earth. Piece of cake, right?

Are you trying to make my head explode from all the awesome cross-overs you do?



This is either going to be spectacular or horrible.

Sly Cooper huh never played any of the games what can I expect from this?

Oddly enough, I've been watching a lot of Sly Cooper gameplay and playing Sly, so I'll check this out. As LaBarata said, It could either be amazing, or terrible.

True, but remember, this is L2L we're talking about.

Shall be epic!! :pinkiehappy:

Hey, uh... you kind of have other stories to finish. This way lies the way of suckdom and never finishing anything.:fluttershysad:

This story is going to be good. It's already off too a great start. I like all the pictures.

This brings back memories of my first real game...

Ohh, very nice. I'm interested to see where this goes. Big fan of the Sly Cooper games on the PS2 as a kid, and this is already shaping up to be in the spirit of it!:twilightsmile:

:fluttercry: *sniff* No words, should have sent a poet.

NOT FAIR! What about a chapter 1 to go with the prologue for those who've actually played the series in and out, why end here? :raritydespair:

That was a great intro, the quick overview of Sly's games was pretty nicely handled. And in all classic Sly Cooper fashion with the snapshots. I hope you somehow manage to add some of those into future chapters with original works, maybe? :raritystarry:

I hope chapter 1 isn't too far off! This is like an instant favorite <3
Even as a prologue I bet it'll hit featured easily :p

EDIT: LOVE LOVE LOVE The cover art! XD
Please do some of that for special scenes in the story ala Sly Cooper fashion ;3
Too much to ask I suppose, but you do excel at both art and writing so not hard to believe you could <3

2094935 OH! That is not my art, I cannot stress this enough!
Art in my works is most often the work of FoxinShadow, my very awesome illustrator.

Also, there is no 'set' update schedual for Stealing Harmony, but I don't think you'll have to wait too long for Chapter 1.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the cover art was a commission by FoxInShadow (who also does the artwork for many other L2L stories), so odds are the story won't be accompanied by a continuous stream of illustrations. I doubt she has the money or the willingness to ask Fox to spend so much time drawing commissions for one story.

This is AWESOME! Make more please

Oh my..... MOARMOARMOARMOARMOARMOARMOARMOARMOARMOAR............. Please? :twilightblush:

L2L is doing a Sly crossover! Woohoo! :pinkiehappy:
If Robin Hood was a Cooper that became immortalized in history, then he must have been the worst Cooper ever. :ajsmug:

I had taken down monsters bigger and badder than Dr. M. To me, it wouldn’t have even been a challenge.

What game were you playing? I had to go through that fight dozens of times before I won. :twilightangry2:

I think you're taking the treasure image behind the cane a little too literally; I think what Bentley meant was that the vault may have collapsed but that cane was still the only key that could open it. I'm pretty sure that same image of treasure was used in the intro movie where Sly described the vault's treasures. (I never thought of it this way, though.)

Two things I hope to see in this story:
1) Sly finds a use for that stupid laser-sliding trick he used for all of five seconds in the game. Thieves in Time is headed to the past, so it's unlikely they'll find lasers there! (Spoilers: I know, they find some anyway.) Do beams of magic have a similar consistency, I wonder? (Sliding down the Rainbow of Light! Wheeee!)
2) Sly does a ninja spire landing on a unicorn horn.

Never had a PS3, so I haven't played the new games, but this makes me want to get the old ones and play them again.

Never played the games.

Still gonna read this, though. :P

Haven't played the Sly Cooper games myself (not a game genre I'm particularly into), so I appreciate the backstory. But I'll echo Telaros wanting a start to this story, too. :twilightsmile:

robin hood is a cooper
new headcanon accepted

this looks quite, quite interesting....i shall await with much eagarity

Well this is going to be good. I've seen one other person who has done a crossover with Sly Cooper but as of lately has boiled down to Sly and the Gang in each of the episodes. This looks like it's going to be fresh and exciting. :pinkiehappy:

I hope to see more of this soon. :eeyup:

I'm a big fan of Sly Cooper having played all 3 games on the PS2. Sadly since I don't have a PS3 I can't pick up the fourth one. :yay:

I can already tell this is going to be a awesome crossover and it with two of my favorite series, can't wait for more.:pinkiehappy:

Sly Cooper. Brings back loads of memories. Can't wait to get Sly 4!

hmm, nice re-account of the original trilogy. But now comes the hard part. You've got us interested but you've got to follow this up with a great second chapter to make us permanently invested. If all goes well I think this could be a long and great story. keep goin and stay golden^^

I've seen awesome starts ruined before... but you seem to have some experience with fanfics so i'm not to worried. good luck, i look forward to part two.

This is not only awesome, it is also expected with that 4th game out hehe. PLEASE MOAR! :flutterrage:

In ever truth, I have never heard of this "Sly Cooper" thing, but it is quite most invigorating. The story of a thief, nice. So much potential in this one. I am under my garters as to what happen next.

FANGASM :eeyup:
I have every LAST game by these people -- Jak+Daxter, Ratchet+Clank, and Sly.
Totally love this!
Plz - Moar!

2096351 Sly Cooper is the protagonist of a series of games developed by Sucker Punch, the company who also made the "Infamous" games. :twistnerd:

My nostalgia, its rising... OVERFLOWING! :flutterrage:
Sly cooper was my FIRST ps2 game ever, I also bought 2 and 3, im low on cash, but I might buy the 4th.
Keep up this Faaaaaantastic fic! :twilightsmile:

-Kiryu :moustache:

I definitely look forward to see how it goes.

I've always loved playing Sly Cooper. Can't wait to get my hands on Thieves in Time. Watching.

With the entire comment section gushing over this fic, and its consequent author, I just might need to see your other stories...

Have a mustache;:moustache:

YEEEEEEEEEESSSS, i can't tell you how much i love Sly Cooper :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. i'll definetely give this a read

Never been much of a Sly fan & never played more than the demo for Band of Thieves. Don't care; definitely reading this.

Ah, Sly Cooper. My favorite of the three PS2 mascots. I was thinking of writing a Sly Cooper crossover, myself... only (to be fair) making the pony cast anthropomorphic.

So, he's in Equestria? SWEET. And Discord's look... classy! I'm going to favorite this.

Sly Cooper was the first video game I ever liked! this is literaly the BEST THING EVER

A Sly Cooper/MLP crossover. That's unusual, but I'm sure you can make it work.
Uh oh! Inconsistency with established canon spotted! :twilightangry2: According to Thieves In Time, the Cooper legacy actually goes as far back as the Ice Age, not Ancient Egypt.

2100157 I haven't played Thieves in Time yet and it is not considered canon for the sake of this story. :derpytongue2:
As of the end of 'Honor among Thieves' the first 'known' member of the Cooper Legacy was Slytutamen (doubt I spelled it right) in Ancient Egypt, so I am using that as my springboard. So... *Avoids canon conflict bullet*
:rainbowdetermined2: Me so sly

You have a most excellent beginning.
Go on...

2100204 :rainbowderp: Curses! You may have escaped me this time, but if I spot something that contradicts the first three games I WILL bring you to justice! :twilightangry2:

2100252 Stop! You have Violated the law!

2100950 I never broke the law! I AM THE LAW!!! :flutterrage:

That last picture.

"Why don't you take a seat over there?"

Alternate title: The Return of Rapetrain-Express

Some really bad ass cover art there. I think I'm gonna like this.:twilightsheepish:
