Commissar Rarity

You call this romance, Charlotte?


Yes, Virginia, there are such things as angels. And there's one pony in particular, a carefree, prideful unicorn mare who just happens to be one.

There's only one problem: She's a little too prideful and carefree for Heaven's liking, so they've booted her to the colorful world of Epona. Her only chance at returning to that realm of gold-paved streets and beautiful music is to protect Ponyville from the armies of the devil.

It'd be a lot easier for her if she hadn't decided one day to become a famous musician. So one day, a fellow angel descends and hits her over the head with an ultimatum: Defeat the Taraxippus that's been haunting Ponyville for months or you won't ever return to heaven.

Chapters (1)

Funny how things turn out. Trixie, disgraced from both her failures in Ponyville, is a vagabond who finds solace in a bottle. Until one day, a griffon shows her the truth behind her lineage: The Lulamoon family were once proud demon hunters. And the griffon nation of Prussia is in bad need of a demon hunter.

One of their sacred castles, Fortnight, has fallen prey to an onslaught of demons. And as it turns out, Trixie's the only demon hunter left in the land of Equestria. Except for the part where she's not really a demon hunter.

As if a castle of horrors isn't bad enough, Trixie also has to put up with a mysterious girl haunting and fighting her every step of the way.

Chapters (7)

In the Equestrian Rim, the best known trader is Beatrix, or "Trixie", captain of the small freighter Lulamoon. Some would even call her a merchant princess. That's how well she's done for herself. She's never particularly cared about what happens to others, only that she gets paid.

But when a routine contract leads her to the backwater Outer Rim, to a colony called "Ponyville", things change. First she almost has a run-in with the nanite-infested Sombrans, and then learns the Sombrans have been raiding Ponyville regularly. So why does she now care about what happens to others?

Sci-fi AU.
