TMMDW #2: Act III
The Mysterious Mare Do Well #2: The Truth of the Matter
Act III: "So It Begins"
***
I continued working with my friends for the following weeks, getting stronger and faster and improving my new skills. I had yet to have made my choice but each day I felt I was getting closer and closer. All it took was a gentle nudge, or maybe a ham hoofed shove in the right direction to get my mind made up.
Here's how it happened...
***
The training was hard but rewarding. Over the last three weeks Amber Lights had subjected herself to hours of physical and mental training. She was stronger now, faster and more agile. She was becoming more and more skilled a healer thanks to Fluttershy and she was able to readily sense the use of magic nearby after exhaustive training with Twilight Sparkle.
She was on her way back into town from a morning workout with AJ and Dash, for strength and agility respectively when she sensed a light pressure beside her. Knowing what was coming, she shut her eyes and a bright

TMMDW #2: Act II
The Mysterious Mare Do Well #2: The Truth of the Matter
Act II: "The Choice"
***
I wasn't always eager to put on the mask and traipse around the cityscape, attacking criminals and thwarting villains. It was a process. One that began in Ponyville when my friends decided that they wanted to help me become a better mare, even if I didn't become Mare Do Well. I could have left the suit in it's case and just went about my life but that's not what happened.
But my friends, they decided I was worth the time...

Amber stood silently staring at the three 'Mare Do Wells' before her.
"So..." She began, but trailed off, taking a step towards the costumes and inspecting them more closely. "So there's three Mare Do Wells?" Her mind was having trouble processing what was happening around her. The six mares were all watching her inspect the suits. "How are there three?"
"Well, it ain't exactly what you thought it was," Applejack said, approaching Amber. "See, if you wanna get right down to it, ther

The Mysterious Mare Do Well #2: The Truth of the Matter
Act I: "The Truth"
***
It was like stepping into a different world when I left Manehatten. I was used to ponies being constantly suspicious and on the verge of a fit of rage. It was strange to see ponies so happy and care free like the Pies were. They worked their mineral farm and they lived happy productive lives. In the city you worked a job like the Barrister at a Starbucks or a Diner waitress and you just muddled through life.
I learned that even if you have noting left, these ponies out here want to help...

Amber Lights stepped through the old roadside gate with Clyde and the rest of the family seeing her off. Clyde gave her a warm smile and stepped forward, extending a hoof.
"Don't be a stranger now," He said as Amber took his hoof in hers. "And be sure to tell dear Pinkamena that we miss her, and look forward to her visits very much."
The sisters took up positions to his side. Inkamena, to the left spoke first.
"Also, b

The Mysterious Mare Do Well #1: The Mare Before the Mask
Act III: "Finding Mare Do Well"
***
So now I'm dead. Dead to the world and even if I wasn't my life is basically over. So I decide then that something needs to be done. I'm in no position to do anything but there's somepony out there who may be able to put an end to this. I decided that night that I was going to find the Mysterious Mare Do Well and try to enlist her aid in putting a stop to all of this. It's a lot harder to find your way around Equestria when your face is on the front page of Equestria Daily, The Royal Tribune, New Yoke Times and even The Tabloid papers.
I did run into some unexpected help along the way, as well as some serious stumbling blocks. One pony ended up being a bit of both. I am, of course talking about 'The Pink Lady' but I'm getting ahead of myself here.

Not a bit to her name, Amber trudged down the deserted stretch of road out in the east Equestrian Countryside. She had brought her boat a few mil

After that, It all really goes down hill. I don't hate him for what he did, but we both know, one day, he'll get his. I'll be sure of that. I should have seen coming it too, but I guess there's what they say about Hindsight. I just know, nothing's gonna change what happened next, no matter how much I wish for it to go away, for me to wake up in my bed and forget this, like any other nightmare. Heh... Nightmare... But pay attention this is where it all really begins.
Cause you see... This is the part where I die.

"This is the place," Amber said at last. "Trottingham and a hundred-first. There's the first store that was hit. Let's start there." With and ever increasingly antsy Stone in tow, she led the way across the street to a small unassuming Magi-tech repair shop. The bell above the door rang merrily prompting a less than welcoming 'welcome' from the Unicorn mare at the counter who har

Act I: "Moving up!"

It's funny. I remember clearly, a time when a pony didn't have to fear the night. When a mare could walk the streets under Luna's vivid stars and feel safe in the knowledge that no harm would come to them. It wasn't even that long ago, really. The streets of Manehatten are the worst offenders now that the night holds real darkness. The rules have changed it appears. Crimes never before seen are now commonplace. The two rival gangs, The Hoods and  The Vandals swarm the alleys and byways. And the police? Don't make me laugh. Incompetent foals and soft headed lackeys.
I should know. I was one of them. My name is- was- Amber Lights, and this is the story of how I became Mare Do Well.

Dear Readers,

You few who have decided to read my story, you have my gratitude and my sincerest apologies. Life's been getting in the way recently and I've had no time to write, but I'm still trying to do stuff.

For Example! I recently received my stylus from my old house and was, just this night attempting to (and doing quite well at that) draw a nice picture of The Pink Lady to show you guys. For those of you curious as to who the Pink Lady is, She's to be the first case that Amber takes on in my Fanfic, The Mysterious Mare Do Well.

Moving on: My brilliant self decides I don't need to save my work and just as I was doing the finishing touches, guess what! My program skits out on me and I lose all of my work. Two hours down the drain, and I was really pleased with my work too.

Anyway, I've learned my lesson and am going to get something out soon, so patience my fellow bronies and pony lovers. Patience...

Frustratedly Yours,

Dalkrin The Wanderer

PS: The next chapter is well underway but I've got a bad record with writing good beginnings but once the action ramps up, puttering out. So bare with me as I attempt to fight my writer's block.
