The plot is that a pony has a cutie mark of himself fucking Celestia. Celestia tells him that it'll never happen. He later joins her guard. Given that plot, I went in with low expectations. The fic far exceeded them. It's largely comedy, with some weaker adventure arcs. All in all, although I've said that it far exceeded my low expectations, I can't honestly say that it's good. The author merely did a far better job with the premise than I ever expected.

The latest chapter, which is the end of the 'The Suitor' arc, has some readers rightfully concerned. The fic is not over, but signs suggest that the author has accidentally resolved the main arc.

Fic is still ongoing since my last review. I'm still reading it. I can't honestly say that it's good, but it appears to be improving. The comedy lands and it's some of the easiest reading I've ever found. My current worry is that the fic won't end. It appears to be following canon's timeline and it's currently in season 3. I worry that it will exceed one million words and continue all the way until the end of the show.

The wrestling match with Celestia and its consequences are such a great read that I'm forced to recommend the entire fic.
