I'm an irritating fangirl who also writes. A lot of my stuff is sad. I am sometimes overly sex-positive, so if you are sex-negative, I might have called you an elitist taint jockey. Sorry about that.


During the war, many small villages were simply not worth fighting over. What would the ponies want with a small village of pottery makers, like Zoco?

The greatest threat to Zoco came not from the ponies but from their own kind, a pair of corrupt ex-spies looking to extort them. The former frumentarii killed the town's only defender and promised they would return for whatever they wanted.

But will a member of the new order of spies -- the agentes in rebus -- turn out to be any less corrupt?

Eeesh, I'm a sillyhead. It's complete! It's just a single little tale far away from the fighting in the war. I just forgot to mark it complete. :derpyderp1:

Very much liked this. Good show! :pinkiehappy:


Thanks! Asazi gets used in Long Shadows but I keep wanting to tell stories about what he did during the war, so I figured I'd try. (I was going for a western feel, if the title didn't give that away.)

Fuck, how you manage to make plot like that? :derpyderp1: Heh. Good.:twilightsmile:


I stole it, sorta! This story is a 'zestern ', a zebra western. Westerns use the 'dangerous stranger helps small defenseless town' trope a lot.

I'm half thinking about writing more stories set in Zoco, though. ^.^
