Wouldn't you be terrified to ask out someone whose overprotective parent can slay a monster

Oh, trust me... plenty out there that wouldn't be intimidated because they think having a parent like that is the coolest thing ever.

So if she threatened you with "if anything happens to my little girl..." Or "if you do anything to hurt her" you wouldn't be scared

I wasn't talking about me, fella, and besides, aren't those kind of parenting clichés? Some scary parents are known to do that as a gut-check to see how serious you are, to go with another trope.

So Celestia used to be in the military before she joined the police.

(Can't remember if you have already covered Celestias backgroung story)

1. I am extremely impressed at how many aspects of Source Accuracy you managed to integrate into your Celestia.  You managed to portray just about everything here that says "Princess Celestia" to the viewer, image-wise.

2. Excellent use of technological wings, another good translation from your original concept of mystic energy wings.  Perhaps you can even use both aspects with later works.

3. My topmost favorite has to be how you portrayed battlesuit-Celestia's arms.  Not only did you depict her golden horseshoes, but even the shape of the armor's forearms with the recessed hands visually mimics hooves.  That was very inspired artistic detailing.

4. Only one extra minor bit that could have been done, which I am surprised you did not do, a helmet to add both alicorn-Celestia's horn and crown.

5. Probably the only negative is that the timberwolves do not really look like their canon wooden counterparts, but made of earthen materiel.  But that is a passable detail I can overlook ;) .

6. I also look forward to seeing you portray Sunset Shimmer as a positive character, instead of an antagonist/villain.  Perhaps Sunset Shimmer can be Commissioner Gordon to Twilight Sparkle's Batman.

Everyone contributes to the person we are when we're grown. Our parents, certainly, but also those who are as close to us as a parent could be. Celestia was more than just a foster mother and an example of good. She was an example of heroism and self-sacrifice that both Sunset and Twilight would take with them into adulthood.

You are brilliant at comic-style panels, SDOGZ. Your human!ponies are the best AU that I've seen so far!

The fact that Celestia was former military is amazing.  I guess she trained both Sunset and Twilight in terms of hand-to-hand?
