*Slams open door*
Twilight: DETECTIVE RARITY!!!

Rarity: Yes Mrs.T?
Twilight: That’s Commissioner Twilight to ya! We have a lead on a Sugarcube Smuggling ring! I need ya to investigate now! *Throws File onto desk*

Rarity: *putting trench coat on* Yes ma’am you got it. *Loads M1911A1,and Thompson*
Twilight: Ya finished yet sweetheart?
*Rarity ignores twilight then exits the door*
Twilight: I’ll take that as a yes.

Mrs.Carver: Oh? What is it that you’re looking for?*Leans onto the bar*
Rarity:*pulls picture from coat pocket* At around 10:43pm,yesterday some mysterious ponies walked in carrying sugercubes,I have come here to investigate.

Mrs.Carver: Right away!
*Mrs.Carver gets the 5 guests together including herself and her husband*

Rarity: I’ve had that one done to me more times than you can imagi-
*bodygaurds kick down the door and unleashes lead rain while rarity dives behind a steel locker*
Rarity: Dammit! I can’t let her get away!
*Rarity jumps out from behind the locker whilst holding her Thompson,she unloads the clip into the guards and runs out the door.

Rarity:Moon! Stop struggling! Surrender and come quietly!
Moon: NO!!! I’m not giving up my fortune!!!
*moon grabs a dagger that was attached to her leg,and attempts to stab Rarity,but she misses.Rarity throws her to the ground and puts her in cuffs.*
Rarity:Your drug smuggling days are done.
Moon:DAMN!!!
Kid: Wow Miss,you’re amazing at fighting people!
*the police then arrive*
Twilight: Satisfactory job Detective.
Rarity: Oh please commissioner...*lights cigar*
Twilight: You’re right,you did pretty good.You stopped a drug smuggling crew!
*Rarity stares at the city*
Rarity: Before I leave Commissioner I must ask...
Twilight:Yes?
Rarity: How come her bar was selling alcohol? Whereas the 18th Amendment says “no distribution of alcoholic substances”?
Twilight: uhm...I don’t know...?
Rarity: Right...*smokes cigar again,and hops into a patrol car*
