These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
This trope is ultimately subverted in chapter 8, where Firewall fails to stop The Nightmare from possessing Princess Celestia.
Sturgeon's Law: This fic is arguably part of the 10% of fanfics involving the Human in Equestria, Self Insert, and/or OC Protagonist tags that actually pulls it off well. According to the author, this was his intention in making this story.
