The Cupcakes genre is so worn out by now, I don't know why I had hoped there'd be something different. The fic follows Twilight's horror at discovering Pinkie's crimes. It's well written, but very bland and typical if you have any sort of familiarity with the "realistic" section of the Cupcakes genre, where everyone's horrified, the Royal Guard aren't incompetent, and Pinkie's a psychopath. Was disappointed it didn't do anything new with one of the oldest plots in the fandom.
