Twilight marveled as Pinkie led her through the large hidden structure that apparently lay secretly under Ponyville.
“We’re responsible for managing and handling outbreaks of magical beings and creatures in Equestria. We help as many individuals as we can blend seamlessly into Equestria while protecting its citizens from the denizens of the unknown parts of the world. We recruit spectacular ponies from all walks of life to help us in this task.”
Pinkie led Twilight down a hall and into a locker room. Inside Twilight gawked as she passed several ponies she knew from Ponyville before finally letting out a cry of protest when she passed Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash wearing towels and talking on a bench.
“You two knew about this?” she exclaimed.
“Oh hey, Pinkie’s finally recruiting you. I told you she’d pass,” RD said, ignoring Twilight’s cry and directing her statements back to her fellow pegasus almost immediately.
“Glad to have you, Twilight. Good luck,” Fluttershy responded, ignoring Rainbow elbowing her in an ‘I told you so’ manner, “I knew you’d make the cut eventually.”
Twilight sputtered incoherently as Pinkie led her down the line of lockers to one that had an image of the outline of her cutie mark.
“Why is it just an outline?”
“When we’re not in civilian roles we have our cutie marks obscured using magic to hide our identities. In the field I’ll call you agent TS. Now let’s put it on.”
“Put on what?”
“The last armor you’ll ever wear,” Pinkie said, opening the locker to reveal thin golden ceremonial chain armor inside.
“Pinkie, I’ve never worn ANY armor.”
A story over too soon. You really hook us in with this intriguing premise. More adventures with this squadron would be fantastic. And Twilight’s last line is perfect. Nice work!
