HAHA, I do love this story, and since there is no ninjas I shall leave. I do have a problem with the story however, see there is no second chapter, and there should be. and that makes me sad face. What? no I don't care if the story just came out a hour ago.

Hmm... intriguing. Please, do go on.

Ah, maybe so, but I am the first to post something readable, with real punctuation and sentence structure!

:moustache:

btw, I'll be watching this story.  It's kinda good.

Not what I was expecting, but still fun.

4/5 Moustaches

:moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

oooooooh!! loved the bit:

"Is... everything alright, dear?"

"Yes."  She chewed her lip.  "The, um, the driver was kind of shaken, you know, about the, um, the cat.  Um.  Absolutely no ninja fights happened on top of the carriage."

Rarity blinked slowly, and nodded.  "Good to know."

hehe lol

You have grabbed my attention and held it hostage.  I shall not resist.  Your ways are too strong, too irresistable.  Proceed with your diabolical plan of....things.

Very theatrical, visual, just what I like about you.  I can see this as I read it.

THAT TREE IS A SPY!

Cute, original fic so far. I want moar :3

>>1043848

Well, there is now!

>>1043944 >>1044367

Oh, if you insist.

>>1043982 >>1044103

Between the two of you, I got five moutaches, so I'ma just combine your scores and divide the total possible by half. :coolphoto:

>>1044233

Heh, I had a hard time deciding whether to end the chapter there or after the first section of Chapter 2, but in the end, I liked that line enough to make it the bumper.  Glad ya enjoyed :pinkiehappy:

>>1044348

Thanks, man.  That means a lot :twilightsmile:  Honestly, the biggest reason I've had writer's block on Prince of Ponyville is that I just can't get my visual image of the diamond dogs' base down.  (Oh, yeah, spoiler: the next chapter is back to Shining and Pinkie :trollestia:)

>>1044354

Shh, you'll ruin the ending!

>>1044471

Thank you, Spike Connery.

(I dunno, the manic grin just reminds me of Sean Connery.  Carry on.)

Argh.  So many italics tags.  Sorry about the formatting error, one guy who's read the chapter so far.

#12 · 123w, 2d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

I will claim the second post as my OWN, Now its time to read.

#13 · 123w, 2d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

Oh, Celestia! Photo Finish will continue to wear whatever garments she wishes to. :coolphoto: I love you, bro. I love you.

#14 · 123w, 2d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

Well, I was reading another story when I saw that this had updated, and then I read the update, and I enjoyed it!

Keep up the good work.:pinkiehappy:

#15 · 123w, 2d ago · 1 · · Photo Ops ·

Duchy of Fancè

Holy shit, you turned "Mah sister's speakin' Fancy!" into a France pun!:pinkiegasp:

Also, 'Fluttershy's dad is a wrestling coach' (or something similar) is getting headcanon'd, right next to 'Rarity's dad is a pro hoofballer', They're thematically appropriate!

Blatant lies in a Russian accent are always hilarious.

#17 · 123w, 1d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

i really like where this story is going.. keep up the nice work

#18 · 123w, 1d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

I will do things to you.  I wrestle bears, lady.  You do not want me to do things to you.

I can't begin to tell you how awesome and hilarious I'm finding this story, so all I'll say is "By Celestia's mane, give me more!" :yay:

Well this is great fun! :yay::raritystarry:

#20 · 123w, 10h ago · · · Photo Ops ·

This is such a great idea for a story! :twilightsmile: I absolutely love it! I've always suspected that Fleur was Fancypants' bodyguard, and don't think I haven't noticed all of your clever references and nods. :raritywink: This is just too much fun! :raritystarry:

#21 · 123w, 8h ago · 1 · · Photo Ops ·

>>1057646

Yeah, what can I say?  I really like the idea of Fancy Pants being a do-gooding social crusader.  (Who also likes airships, of course :twilightsmile:)  He's kinda like Batman, if Batman used his wealth to help Gotham instead of becoming a ninja.  And instead of minimizing crime, he tried to gradually dismantle the old aristocracy by promoting egalitarianism.  Hrm.

Actually, another thing I love about your take on Fancy is how it ties in with my own ideas about Equestrian politics, like in "Coins and Crowns."  Hrm.  I kinda wanna write a prequel piece about Fancy meeting Crown Jewel now.  Think that'd actually be pretty interesting.

Anyway and also, thank you :pinkiehappy: Compliments from the author of a story I still kick myself for not reading sooner are deeply and profoundly appreciated :yay:

Um, while I've got you here... any ETA on the last chapter?  :moustache:

#22 · 121w, 5d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

Loving this so far buddy, please continue :pinkiehappy:

Can't think of anything intelligent to write atm so have a moustache for your troubles :moustache:

#23 · 120w, 1d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

This is brilliant. There is no pony better for the life of an Agent Secret than Fluttershy. :flutterrage:

I would give it the thumbs up even if it weren't awesome though, in order to support a fellow Rarity-lover. :duck:

It's bon soir, though the "r" is silent in some dialects (and others it's not but an English-speaker wouldn't be able to tell due to the difference in "r" sounds between the languages). In other news, this is awesome. :coolphoto:

i just finished reading this chapter, and i scroll up to find the new chapter was posted while i was writing my last comment :rainbowkiss:so awesome!

That was great, can't wait to read more. Liked, watched, and fav'd.

#28 · 120w, 1d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

I don't know why, but I couldn't stop laughing when I read "tai kwon po." :rainbowlaugh:

Umm...Gentlecolts?

MEET THE FLUTTERSPY

I see the Rarity is safe. Tell me...if thats ok with you...did anypony happen to see a Red Adder on the way here? No? Then we still have a problem *eep* :fluttercry:

um...um... would it be um okay if i killed you and took that briefcase?

#32 · 119w, 5d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

Amazing story the imagination and creativity of the story is all so astounding! Love how the photographer is photo finish too! :coolphoto:

#33 · 119w, 3d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

as if Fluer's accent wasn't obnoxious enough; Photo Finish.

srsly tho, i'm loving this so far.

#34 · 119w, 2d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

The newcoming huffed dismissively.

I believe you meant newcomer.

I have now headcannoned Fancy Pants as the mild-mannered alter ego of Bruce Mane. Not what you intended, but headcannon is headcannon.

I enjoy the plot, and I especially enjoy the character development. Of course, the realist in me is upset about how fast Fluttershy's been trained. My inner troper is screaming back about how it's fine here because it's a dramatic convention, and my super-realist hasn't gotten past the "pastel ponies" part yet. But give him time... I've watched since late season 1, and I expect him to calm down by mid-season 8 or so.

Fluttershy and spies? ~curiousity intrigued~:trixieshiftright:

Meets Fancypants ~curiosity peaked~:moustache:

Fleur is FRENCH ~attention grabbed~:heart:

Bitchy pony so bitchy it annoys literally everypony ~intrigued once more~

Fleur is French AND a spy AND gets into a ninja catfight ON A MOVING VEHICLE~STORY FAVORITED~:yay::raritywink:

I... What? This story took a strange turn. I mean, I expected it, but it was still strange. But in a good way, of course. :twilightsmile:

#37 · 118w, 3d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

Well. That was interesting. But Fluttershy is best spy, so it's okay.

You done wrote yourself a good story. Nicely done :twilightsmile:

#38 · 116w, 2d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

A very cute concept with fantastic execution.  I'll definitely be following this story.

My goodness, this story is simply wonderful so far!  Intriguing, well-written, and with great characterization.  Can't wait to see where this goes!

#40 · 116w, 11h ago · 1 · · Photo Ops ·

"a plot to ruin Rarity's career"

A better plot than Rarity's!? IMPOSSIBRU

#41 · 115w, 1d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

Awesome story! I HAVE been craving for a little ol' fashioned 007 James Bond action! Keep up the good work and update soon!:twilightsmile:

#42 · 115w, 18h ago · · · Photo Ops ·

gibbe finished story pls

#43 · 106w, 2d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

When is the next update?!:flutterrage::raritycry:

#44 · 105w, 2d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

*scans the story with a tricorder*  I think it's dead, Jim.  :trollestia:

#45 · 105w, 1d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

>>1783481

Not dead, just indefinitely postponed.  Writer's block is a terrible thing.

Probably should officially flip the "hiatus" switch, though.

#46 · 105w, 1d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

>>1786504  Maybe I can jar your creativity!  *begins 'jarring' your creativity... with blunt blows to the head*  Gotta rattle those thoughts around a bit!  

*when he's through, the only thing you can do is growl and mumble incoherently about crystals and slaves*

Oh great, I made another Sombra!

:trollestia:

My eyes are selotaped to the monitor in excitement. Please continue before I go blind!

#48 · 87w, 3d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

>>1786504 It is unfortunate that you aren't going to finish this; I was enjoying myself.

#49 · 86w, 5d ago · · · Photo Ops ·

Woot! :yay:

#50 · 78w, 47m ago · 1 · · Photo Ops ·

YAAAAY!!

Oh the wish for updates...
