Grapevine Hills Vineyard and Winery is one of the greatest vineyards in all of Equestria. However, it has recently become the site of three murders, all apparently happened at the same time. The current detective on the case believes the owner Sour Grapes to be responsible for their deaths. But Private Eye has his suspicions about the whole case. What follows is conspiracy, cover ups, a secret the owner is keeping from her fellow workers, and a feud that goes back to before Private was even born. Private will need all the help he can get to solve this case. Luckily, Sour Grapes is quick to provide.

This story is a crossover between Equestria Noir and The Sour Grapes Chronicles

I wanted to punch Thatcher in the face until that last line. It raises a very good question!

Also, I can see a Lady and the Tramp sidestory between Luca and Winona forming...


Down Psycho Me! Down! Get back to the conspiracy board! We've got a new case!

2384075That is too hilarious! That would be awesome!!!

Great start to the new storie cant wait for the next Chapter. :eeyup::yay::twilightsmile:

“Normally Ah’d be easy to forgive,” but Ah’m not too forgivin' of a wolf that came tah deflower mah Winona!”

I saw ths and was like, "Don't you mean devour?:rainbowhuh:" *searches "deflower" in dictionary*" Oh, I see now-- oooooooh.... that's what.....that's what "deflower" means:twilightoops:"

Wow. Detective, element bearer, relationship expert, AND dog whisperer! I kinda imagine Private as the Equestrian version of "the most interesting man alive".

2384933But there are things that even Private can't do remember

A most excellent beginning! I'm thinking i may know where grapes was...let's see if I'm right

Interesting start to a new case and could we possibly see more Luca and Winona together in the future?

2387106For this is the night...it's a beautiful night...and we call it Bella Notte...

yet again, you have captured my attention with the beginning of yet another fine chapter in the equestria noir story:moustache:

2384075 Dark!!! Since according to Equestria Noir you and I are god friends......i need your help in getting rid of the Doctor.....Derpy shall be Mine!!!! :derpytongue2:......on entirely unrelated not, you like how Jacoboby made you a drunkard at the Violet Rose :scootangel: :trollestia:

2388613 Considering my country, I find it very appropriate xD

Okay, with Thatcher interrogating a colt shows he is a really racist jerk and I sort of do want them to have a reason to have him arrested or something.

Great chapter cant wait for the next one. :twilightsmile::eeyup::yay:

I giggled a bit, considering everyone hates Thatcher, and the whole thing with another Thatcher that happened today.
Good chapter, the plot thickens!
Shit. I'm stuck in it.
Psycho me, get me out of this plot soup! It's too thickened!

Screw Forceps. I want more Sherrie Illusions!

2397051Well, this was one of the last cases to use a examiner. So I had to go with the classic.

2397065 omg! You're killing off Sherrie's part? Nooooooooooo!

2397083I meant for this season! Please don't kill me! She'll be back in season 2 I swear! Possibly case 22 in season 1 if anybody gets murdered..

With what is happening around the farm, I'll say the case just turned sour with thatcher around... (bleck, bad pun. :pinkiesick: )

I am now very intrested in what would happen next however... I won't make any guesses yet until I know for sure about something.

“It’s fine, Twilight,” I said, shaking my head. “We’ll get through this without having to resort to using threats.”

Um...little late for that Private. :trixieshiftright:

Thatcher clear greased a few hooves to become a detective in the first place. i say this because he first forms an opinion and then constructs his investigation to get the answers he want to have. i wise detective would avoid this, but a pompous, racist ass like Thatcher appears to be would revel in that kind of thing...

2406529Not all detectives have the client's best interests in mind. Thatcher and Vegas are prime examples of that. This is the kind of world Private left behind. This is another prime reason why he left the force in the first place. Too many cops on it want to just get a case done as fast as possible. They don't care if a suspect is innocent so long as they have a suspect.

2406547 in point of fact, Vegas was in it for fame and renown, or at least thats how it seemed to me. Thatcher is too new to get an accurate angle on as yet, so ill just hand him a shovel to dig his own grave, and a rope to hang himself for now...

Cough syrup? That's nothing, Forceps! I know a guy who snorted three whole marijuanas and overdosed. He's lucky to be alive!

"Adamus Eye, C.E.O. of Eye Enterprises has recently come under fire as his health has been brought into question. Numerous workers have noticed that Adamus has been distant, acting agitated and short tempered to his fellow business ponies.
Adamus himself refused to comment on the exact nature of his health. However, he did tell us that the rumors were quote “unfounded” and “ridiculous.”"
Yay, more Doctor Who references.:yay:
All we need next is:
"Adamus Eye, C.E.O of Eye Enterprises"
"We know who you are."

Aww bloody hell... Looks like some of my earlier thoughts were proven wrong. :ajbemused: But I was expecting a tiny bit of Grape of hiding something, now that that's out in the open. The one thing that bugs me is the masked pony, most unicorns come from canterlot and the voice would match. But I feel something is not right about that. :rainbowhuh:

With all of this going on, I think I may need to actualy make my own conspiracy board, or I could just wait for the next chapter. :pinkiehappy:

2416704 We have a few spare ones in the basement if you need one. I can send Psycho Me down to get it.

If you don't need it I could use it. I dislike leaving things to waste away in forgotten memory...

Now all I just need is string, and possibly a tazer in case your pycho you tries to do anything funny.

2416831 Yeah, he's on his way. Told him to drop it outside, don't want him coming into your house.

Alright... now to make sure that My character John doesn't-... scratch that, I need to make sure Pinkie won't steal it first.

2416840Oh Sweet Luna now there's two of them...:facehoof:

In a way, these cases leave me in ways that make me wonder... Oh fer the love of.... Hang on a moment, I've got to get my board back from Pinkie since she nicked it.

More developments and still have no idea where this is going.
Noticed this,
"but t you already knew that.",
I think the T between but and you is an extra letter.

great chapter cant wait for the next one. :eeyup::yay::twilightsmile:

:facehoof: Somehow, I am not suprised that Thatcher was indeed involved. What I didn't know was the possibility of there being a part of Grape's family involved as well, something's not right. Though it is good to see Thatcher have to bite the bullet.

Now I did get my conspiriacy board back from pinkie with a bit of help from one of my characters (John if your intrested) But I don't think I can use it right now, there's nothing to conspire about here. I suppose I'll have to leave it empty until the next chapter. :ajbemused:

3 actually...while I don't own a physical conspiracy board....my constantly thinking brain is always checking things out and pondering on characters and questions:moustache:

nice to see that scumbag get the boot up the backside

I had a feeling he was involved:trixieshiftleft:

And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling hybrids!

2431742Sour Grapes does look a little like Thelma...

Now we just have to wait for that jerk Vice to be in another case.:pinkiecrazy:

2431784>>2431788 Jinkies! And I don't even have the bob haircut.

2433989It's the glasses mostly

2435041 I don't even know how you managed to refrence scooby doo, but I can't argue about that. :twilightsmile: I actualy liked the show myself.

It's so exciting to see what Private would do next, and how the case will play out. Now being a fan of this, I may try a hoof at writing a detective story. Probably won't happen for a while until I finish my first story though. :ajbemused:

hmmmn, i did have suspicions of both Thatcher and Pave doing something...Pave definitely after the attempted kidnapping, the broach with the family crest was a dead giveaway. thatcher was something of a surprise though...

Great chapter cant wait for the next one. :eeyup::twilightsmile::yay:
