The name's Diane, Private Eye. I'm the stickiest gumshoe in all of Manehattan, with an addiction to danger (and chocolate). Hot on the trail of a missing foal, a feeling deep in my twitchy-tail tells me I'm about to crack the case wide open. Unfortunately, I may need the help of my weirdo "friends" to do it... but who knows, maybe I'll change my mind about friendship after an epic character arc.

Oops. Sorry for breaking the fourth wall there, but you can blame Mom for that one. After all, I'm just a half-bit mimeo of the #horsefamous Bearer of Laughter.

I mean, it's not like I have a soul, or anything.

Why is this happening to me?

This story is a sequel to Candy Mane's Almost-Epic Slice-of-Life Adventure


It's common knowledge that Candy Mane is, in all likelihood, the least clever pony in all of Equestria. But that doesn't mean she can't find romance on Hearts and Hooves Day!

No... wait, I'm pretty sure it does mean that. But maybe romance can find her, instead?
