    Story: Fillystata (Update Story 2 Part 9!) 

    4 Star

    [Grimdark][Shipping] I usually avoid Grimdark like the plague, but due to reasons completely out of my control, I gave it a shot anyway.  I was completely hooked after just two chapters, and the nightly roundup ended up an hour late because of it! This story is just straight up awesome. Anyway have a pre-reader quote too!

    Author: Garnot
    Description: Set in an alternate Neo-Noir Equestria.

    Ten years have passed since Celestia and Luna mysteriously vanished from the face of the planet, leaving their nation to slowly fall apart. Now, crime, corruption and a faceless evil threaten to destroy the slowly recovering nation.

    In the middle of this chaos stands Bogart Maltese, an equine and member of the Regulators - an enclave dedicated to fighting crime, corruption and villainy - who is on a quest to find and punish the ones responsible for his partner's murder. Along the way, he will meet another soul, who just like him, longs to understand her own tragic past.

    To find the answers they both seek, the two will have to travel to hell and back. What they discover may change the face of Equestria forever.

    Trust no one and fear the dark places of the world.
