-->--Rose

The first installment of FanFic/TheJubiverse.

On the one hoof, itís [[XMeetsY My Little Pony as a film noir]]. On the other hoof, itís also a borderline Shock Fic.

The story opens up with [[AntiHero Rose]], who is traumatized by the death of her friends Lily and Daisy. After she has completed her ďtrainingĒ, she picks up crime fighting, and stumbles into a huge conspiracy that involves serial killers, gang leaders, and even [[spoiler: Twilight Sparkle.]] How deep does this mystery go?

''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis All. The way. Down.]]''

It was uploaded to FIM fiction by [[http://www.fimfiction.net/user/theycallmejub theycallmejub]], and can be read [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/5257/Eyes-Without-a-Face here]]. But be careful: since it's a part of the Jubiverse, the story itself is ugly, violent, scary, and in many ways disturbing. Administrivia/YouHaveBeenWarned.

!!This fanfiction series provides the following tropes:

* AntiHero / VillainProtagonist: [[ZigZaggingTrope Really]], when it comes to Rose, [[UnreliableNarrator either]] [[NightmareFetishist trope could]] [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant apply.]]
* BadassBaritone: Heck, the guyís NAME is even Baritone!
* BadGuyBar
* BlackAndGreyMorality
* CreepyTwins: Temporal and her brother are both [[DirtyCop dirty cops]], and capable of doing some pretty terrible things.
** [[spoiler: Even though Inkie and Blinkie arenít really twins, they still fit this trope unnervingly close.]]
* DarkerAndEdgier: This is the first story in the Jubiverse, and by far still the most violent and sinister.
* DatingCatwoman: Rose begins to warm up to [[BecomingTheMask pretending to be Crestís girlfriend.]]
* {{Deconstruction}}: We've already seen [[spoiler: Twilight Sparkle flip her lid over the small stuff]] a few times in the series proper. Now we see what would happen if [[spoiler: she lost her horn.]] It ain't pretty.
* DepravedBisexual: Rose is the kind of pony who would make out with a guy, kill him, then make out with his girlfriend. Or maybe [[ILoveTheDead the other way around.]] [[CrossTheLineTwice While they watch!]]
* DirtyCop: Pretty much anypony on the police force, but especially [[spoiler: Twilight Sparkle.]]
* EvilBrit: Most members of the Daughters of Discord gang are from Trottingham. Their leader, Crest, stands out the most, though.
* [[spoiler: FallenHero: Twilight Sparkle, big time. Also implied with Applejack.]]
* FilmNoir: In the vein of FrankMiller.
* ICanChangeHim: What Redheart thinks she can do for Rose. [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption You don't even need to guess whether or not she can.]]
* IFellForHours: An entire chapter is about Rose falling. It's over a thousand words long.
* InLoveWithYourCarnage: [[spoiler: The reason Twilight Sparkle wants Rose to work with her. Unfortunately, [[BigBad the Pie sisters]] also have their eye on her for this same reason...]]
* InterplayOfSexAndViolence: Referenced often enough and used in such a way as to turn this whole fic into the occasional GrossOutShow.
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique
* JustShootHim: Baritone's solution to Rose chasing him.
* TheNicknamer: When Rose doesn't know somepony's name, she thinks up one herself as a placeholder, such as "Tiger Voice" for Baritone or "Blondie" for [[spoiler: Applejack]].
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant[=/=]NightmareFetishist: Rose likes to ping-pong between these two tropes. She glosses over a lot of what she does to ponies as if she's describing a cooking recipe or recounting a hot night on the town.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Rose on... well, nearly anypony she gets her hooves on, unless it's ColdBloodedTorture instead.
* NoEnding: Because it's just the beginning.
* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: Junebug never wrote down the exact recipe for Shard, which is why [[spoiler: the Daughters of Discord require her alive in order to make more dirty money.]]
* OriginStory: Believe it or not, this whole story leads up to how Rose becomes the new Mare-Do-Well.
* PorkyPigPronunciation: J-J-Junebug has this.
* [[PsychopathicManchild Psychopathic Mare-Foal]]: Rose has no obligations (Even if she's dating or staying with somepony, she does not respect this obligation), no job, no real sense of personal responsibility, and absolutely no social skills, to the point where Redheart or whoever she decides to stay with needs to take care of her or she will forget to.
* RedLightDistrict
* ShoutOut: There's a cowgirl-themed stripper who seems to be exceedingly good at her job. [[SinCity Where have we seen this before?]]
* StutterStop: What the Shard does for Junebug... [[MushroomSamba among ''other'' things...]]
* {{Tearjerker}}: [[spoiler: Twilight Sparkleís death.]]
* ThereAreNoTherapists: To be honest, if this were RealLife, a person like Rose would be in an insane asylum.
* TrainingFromHell: From what Rose says about her training under Storm Chaser, this was his idea of "toughening up."
* UnreliableNarrator: Given the fact that itís all from Roseís perspective, and that Rose is a completely broken failure of a pony, the reader [[MindScrew canít be totally certain]] if anything really happens the way Rose claims it does.
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler: The Pie sisters]] fight over Rose, killing each other in the process.
** [[spoiler: Twilight Sparkle, unable to cope with her victimhood, chases after Rose and falls to her death as a result.]]
* VillainousCrossdresser: A ''whole gang'' of them no less!
* [[spoiler:WouldHarmAChild: The entire Daughters of Discord gang was involved in pony trafficking, [[MoralEventHorizon selling foals off as sex slaves.]]]]
* WretchedHive: Manehatten seems to be the mother of all urban decay.
