Pinkieton Detective Agency

:pinkiehappy: You know I was hoping for more details about this.

Nicely dramatic ending!

#2 · Chapter 1 · 78w, 6d ago · · ·

Is it wrong that I thought of Octavia's voice at the end to sound like Christian Bale's Batman voice? No? Good. :rainbowwild:

Carry on!

Now that is how you open a story. Can't wait for more!

The title is grammatically incorrect :moustache:

#5 · Chapter 1 · 78w, 6d ago · · ·

Plot hook!!!!!!:pinkiegasp:


Can't wait for more! :pinkiehappy:

Changelings, changelings everywhere! Just as I am done with them, they pop up in the next place I go! Leave me alone, Chrysalis!

This version of Equestria seems to be a rather non-absolute monarchy. Mayor Mare being this critical to the crown is not that usual, but I'm always glad to see new takes on the matter.

(Celestia is watching you :trollestia:)

A random idea: somepony should make a picture of the Coltbert Report or, perhaps, properly ponify the logo, and then you could put it in the commercial break!

I am SOOO looking forward to more!

That is a brilliant idea. Fortunately, just such an image already exists! :pinkiehappy:

Looking forwards to this! Liked, faved, and read later-ed.

>>1444693 It is still incorrect :moustache:

Con Mane's back, and in a bloody great chapter to boot. :pinkiehappy: Loving the story already!

#17 · Chapter 2 · 77w, 5d ago · · ·

More like, "Never Say I'd Die from a Airship Crash Again."

Come on changelings, take the shot with that type of backdrop! Who would argue over, "A View to a Kill"?

Okay, I'll stop with the movie quotes. :twilightsheepish:

Nice way to get the agents out of a tight spot. An elaborate escape plan must be the first year in cadet training for agents or something.

Please continue!

#18 · Chapter 2 · 77w, 5d ago · · ·

"Everypony needs a hobby."

"And what's yours?"

"Resurrection."

#20 · Chapter 2 · 77w, 5d ago · · ·

Now I've got the urge to go watch a spy movie :moustache:

#21 · Chapter 2 · 77w, 5d ago · · ·

matrix scene?

#22 · Chapter 2 · 77w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1486514  Yes, I believe it's called SPY 101: Escapology.

You know what's really funny? I just typed in 'escapology' and didn't even realize it's a real word. Where do I sign up for that class? :pinkiecrazy:

>>1486804 Bingo. :ajsmug:

>>1487015 That gif fills me with such ridiculous pure giddy joy it's hard to tear my eyes away from it.

>>1489238 :rainbowlaugh: No, but now that you mention it I wish I had thought to put in a lengthy scene with lots of mid-air flips and martial arts moves.

#23 · Chapter 2 · 77w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1489266 Pretty sure I spent a good 5 minutes watching that GIF, all the while my smile getting bigger and bigger. Best 5 minutes of my life, that was.

#24 · Chapter 1 · 77w, 4d ago · · ·

Wow, quite a way to start this off!  So glad the sequel is here! :pinkiehappy:

#25 · Chapter 2 · 77w, 4d ago · · 1 ·

>>1489238

I GIVES YOU MATRIX SCENE!!

Not relevant to the story but...

As for this story,

Amen to THAT!!

BEER HERE I COME!!!

I always use images to convey my thoughts.  :trollestia:

#26 · Chapter 2 · 77w, 3d ago · · ·

“My goggles...I can’t see in here without my goggles!”

Velma Scratch.  That is all.

#27 · Chapter 2 · 77w, 3d ago · · ·

>>1498801

Nope Johnny Bravo.

Specifically from when he met scooby and the gang he ran into Velma and after she claims to not be Abe to see without them he says. "My glasses, I can't be seen without my glasses! "

Well, unless one of the changelings was particularly good at staying in character compared to the others, looks like Con Mane is alive after all.

Then again, I have to wonder, was the Con Mane in the airship crash a changeling as well? For that matter, have we ever even seen the real one?

>>1529159 I would post a certain reaction image containing Nicolas Cage, but I'm a nice person.

So Fluttershy will fill in. She's a nice pony.

#32 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 5d ago · · ·

I shall name him wubsy and he will mine and he will be my wubsy.

#33 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 5d ago · · ·

Oh, you know this is going to be good when two totally incompatible roommates shack up for an extended period of time. I expect nothing but completely civilized behavior from these two. :ajsmug:

Loved the names you gave to all the other agent ponies. The puns were many and each was spectacular.

Anyone putting bits down on how long the apartment stays intact? And I don't mean from a changeling attack!

#34 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 5d ago · · ·

I'm hearing the voices of Judi Dench and Desmond Llewelyn, and it is glorious  :raritywink:

This story and its predecessor... come for the story, stay for the delightfully subtle humor. I haven't smiled so much while reading a chapter of anything in a long time. Continue!

#35 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 5d ago · · ·

...Quite's parents must've hated him.:facehoof:

#37 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 5d ago · · ·

:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

Wubsy!!

#38 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 5d ago · · ·

Wubsy is a bass cannon??

It's too high pitched to be bass-line.  Something like "The Sonic Rain Cannon" would be better for that.

Otherwise

I mean it.  The first was cool but this is getting better by the chapter.

Yeah.

I always use images to help convey my thoughts.  :trollestia:

*fist pumps* :pinkiehappy: My job here is done.

>>1530705

Something like "The Sonic Rain Cannon" would be better for that.

That pun doesn't even make any sense. :rainbowhuh:

#40 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1530848

No pun here.  Serious logic.  Wait, logic doesn't count when we're talking MLP.

Nevermind...

#41 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1530921 I don't mind application of logic, but 'Sonic Rainboom' is a pun. So 'Sonic Rain Cannon' just...makes no sense. :derpytongue2:

#42 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 5d ago · · ·

Another great chapter, building up the world of intrigue.

When did Pinkie find the time to found a detective agency?  Was it founded by a predecessor?  I need to know who did done dood it!

I can only imagine the hilarity that ensues when these two roommates have finally had enough and go at each other with spy gadgets!  

Speaking of gadgets, I assume the Aston Mustang spy chariot is forthcoming?  One simply cannot leave a spy without his one-use, multimillion-dollar decorative missile launcher on wheels!

#43 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1532129

The spy chariot should, of course, be drawn by two earth ponies that turn into pegasi when you push a button for "flight mode" (or get pretty butterfly wings for the same reason).

#44 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 4d ago · · ·

Pinkieton, yes! And the Pinkie Promise had consequences!

I am content.

#45 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 4d ago · · ·

>>1532129 Perhaps she founded an agency after getting a taste of detective work during the MMMystery on the Friendship Express

#46 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 3d ago · · ·

Not really anything specific to comment about the chapter, but just wanted to say I heartily enjoy reading this story. The writing is excellent, the puns witty (well, as much as puns can be), and the characters lively and thoroughly in the third-dimension. I look forward to more.

#47 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 3d ago · · ·

Calling it now- Amber either is, or will be replaced by a changeling.

Because who suspects the little old lady?

Other than myself, of course.

#48 · Chapter 3 · 76w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1539125 I suspect the little old lady.  As soon as she knocked on the door.

I'm sensing a Red Scare scenario, but they're not red.  Black Scare?  Bug Scare?  Cheesehooves Scare?

#49 · Chapter 4 · 75w, 5d ago · · ·

Not even a day.

These two are going to end up killing each other way before Con Mane ever gets to them.

Nice development for the changeling. The ultimate spies!

The panic and chaos at the end was nicely done. Now we just need to find out what Con Mane was really up to...
