Forensics Is Magic

My Little Pony: forensics is magic; part two

Yes, I finished in under two weeks, a new record for me.

The story continues as Wedge and Biggs search for Pinkie’s accomplice, and start to uncover some truly disturbing facts about the killing...all done in the traditional MLP:FIM style!

My Little Pony: forensics is magic part two.

My Little Pony: forensics is magic

I know, I’ve been working on this junk rather than finishing my original Fiction, but inspiration is a wind: you can’t control it and when it blows you’re usually better off going with it than fighting against it. So fanfic not Original Fiction: that’s one strike against my credibility...

It’s a My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic fanfic.

That’s strike two.

It’s a Pseudo-sequel to Cupcakes.

Strike Three he’s Out! (note, as a Brit, this is my only knowledge of baseball. Above and beyond the fact it involves strikes you could tell me almost anything about that game and i’d believe it. American football I get, baseball... it’s a complete mystery to me.)

Yes, sorry chaps. But, it’s halloween. Consider this a Trick and/or treat (again, as a brit Halloween is another institution i’ve never really got, but never mind) I’ve followed the rise of “Bronies” online with considerable and purely anthropological interest, wondering what all the fuss was about and marveling at the totally inexplicable memes and in-jokes (thank you Meme-bace). Then, two weeks ago when house sitting and very bored, I discovered that they had finally got round to showing My Little Pony Friendship is Magic on british TV, and it instantly took over small but important parts of my mind. I’ve always had a soft spot for the weirder aspects of internet culture, was a borderline Furry, and still regularly watch cartoons I remember from the ’90s, so you could say I was a Bronie in the making...

And of course, I could resist the chance to take a much-loved children’s cartoon and put in realistic depictions of crime-scene forensics, time of death estimations, Noir plot elements and cold-blooded murder, because thats what watching Animals of Farthing Wood as a kid will do to you.

So buckle up and enjoy as Guardsponies Wedge and Biggs investigate what looks to be a routine murder at Sugarcube Corner and stumble onto a far bigger and more sinister crime.

concluding part soon...

Happy Halloween!

My Little Pony: Forensics is Magic, part one.
