"A world without friendship is a lonely world indeed."

T

A famous crime boss once had this to say about mafia life: “This life of ours, this is a wonderful life. If you can get through life like this and get away with it, hey, that’s great. But it's very, very unpredictable. There’s so many ways you can screw it up.”

Back when I was a young assistant, I never thought I'd end up a mobster. But now that I am, I can't help but feel this quote describes my life to a t. I bet you're wondering what I'm talking about, and why this story's called Mr. Smokes instead of Spike. Well, it's a long story, but it all started on the day Rarity broke my heart...

Pinkie lives to make others smile.

But the world is far from a nice place, and not everypony deserves to smile. For the sake of Equestria, perhaps it is best for some ponies to be left to drown in their own misery.

Then again, it's not like she ever had a choice.

What did it mean to be a worthy man?

This was the question that had haunted Spike ever since he had fallen for Rarity. At first, the answer had seemed so simple. Honesty, laughter, generosity, kindness, loyalty, and magic. These were the qualities Spike aspired to embody.

At least, they were, before he had his heart broken.

Now, he knows the truth.

A year has passed since Twilight's coronation as princess, and the only pony who isn't happy during the anniversary party, is Twilight.

Perhaps what she needs is a night to herself, to reflect on why she's afraid to break free from her chains and find happiness.

Or perhaps what she needs is an escape. A way to run away and forget her problems... just for the night.

Luckily, the perfect escape comes to her in the form of a stranger.

Or perhaps this escape is just her next set of chains.
