Confound these wretched equines! For every one I fling away, a dozen more vex me!

What you are about to read never happened. There is no clandestine government group referred to as "The Agency". If there were such an group, it would most definitely not employ young fillies as agents. And rest assured, an organization called MULE did not come within minutes of detonating a bomb at the Summer Harvest Parade in Ponyville.

The only things out of the ordinary that happened that weekend were some bullying related incidents. That is the official story, and we are sticking to it.

This is really clever! I like the way you've interpreted the fillies' personalities and talents while still keeping them close to what we see on the show.

I don't like it. I find the fact that Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon as heroes. It is off putting, now if it was the CMC stopping the bomb while doing it with comedy, that I will like, but I am going to do a thumbs down, hope you don't mind.

I didn't realize the mayor was in on the underground spy network. Is she working for the Agency as well or is she just kept in the loop as a public official?

There's a lot of fun to be had using the CMC as agents in a comedy, for sure. I do it myself in Saving Mrs. Buzzy. For this though, I wanted to play with the idea that, behind what we see in the show, there's another story going on. And since the episode is essentially from the CMC's PoV, it had to be someone else (hence no CMC tags). So I used the antagonists, making their jerk behavior part of their cover identity.

Of course, thanks to bullies being something people encounter in real life, they do tend to evoke strong reactions in people, and when something you feel strongly about gets messed with, well, down votes happen :scootangel:

She's a public official kept out of the loop. But if they want to evac the town, they go to a public official...

A very creative take on the characters. Multiple hints at darkness lurking just past the edge of the Equestria we see, but you had the sense to let it stay there, threatening. Good deal all around. Thumb's-up and faved. :twilightsmile:

Very nice, very d'aww! :twilightsmile:

Give the antagonists some slack, please? :fluttershysad:

Yay, :yay: another story to add to my 'Read Later' list.

This was brilliant. I loved every word of your story. Diamond and the others as secret agents gives a totally new twist to everything we see them doing since normally we only have the Cutie Mark Crusaders' view to go by. I say this is one of the most creative approaches I've seen in a Friendship is Magic fan-fiction. Well done :twilightsmile:

Vinyl Scratch, Diamond Tiara, and Silver Spoon all secretly being spies is the kind of silly, but quite entertaining thought that provokes discussion on whether or not half of Ponyvile's residents are putting on crazy fascades to mask secret lives. :pinkiesmile:
Is Fluttershy really shy, or just hiding something?
Is Rainbow always practicing stunts up in the sky, or keeping an eye out over town?
IsTwilight really a neurotic mess, or... Actually, that's probably all to that one. :derpytongue2:

BRILLIANT!!! I love how you used every aspect of Babs Bullying and gave her good reason for it.

you made me like Babs Seed just a little bit more!:duck:

So sad about DT and AB but at least Diamond has Silver and now Babs has the two of them.

I loved every moment of this fic!

I loved DT and SS talents to. I loved Silver Spoons psychic connection to objects and photographic memory (the latter kina like Batman which is super cool!) I would love to see more Agent D and Agent S (and yes B to) adventures in the future:raritystarry:

As someone currently kicking around the idea of a DT superspy story, I cannot help but love this. There's a slew of various typos scattered throughout, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying and continuing to grow in my appreciation of the pony I thought I would hate forever!
