Re: Gotham High

With three chapters of this story behind me, I feel that I have to admit something. This was worse than I was expecting. It’s weird that I have to admit that, because that’s sort of always been my expectation with any other fanfic. But this time, it comes from an unusual source. The author made the...

Re: Yugioh: The Divine Conspiracy

Props to you for getting through this mess, GorillaGamer. Just reading this exercise in demolishing strawmen and rationalizing spiteful murder has been exhausting.I don't think I need to sum up the story too much, since I think you already did. You hit the nail on the head here. Jesus Christ, is thi...

Re: Gotham High

Thank you, GorillaGamer. I agree, the antagonist stereotype of "misogynist prime" is rather pervasive in the stuff I find. It's one of the most lazily implemented bad guy stereotypes in fiction, the stock reference for a kind of person everyone dislikes, and that sums up the entire point of their e...

Re: Gotham High

The stage is set. The author’s OC has been introduced along with her worst enemy - herself. The eponymous Gotham High has been plastered up as a backdrop, and more than a dozen named villains inhabit it for reasons that are beyond the author’s interest. It’s time for the main star of the canon seri...

Re: Yugioh: The Divine Conspiracy

How are the heroes deplorable? I'm glad you asked! Just across the last few chapters, we've seen behavior that not only counts as villainous but also as goddamn war crimes. We've had the slaughter of surrendering enemies, who had been intimidated into surrender, their deaths being bookended with thi...

Gotham High

If you’ve spent at least some time browsing fanfiction, you’ve probably come across a peculiarly popular type of story. The High School AU. In short, it is an exercise of taking every character from the established canon and throwing them into a high school setting. If that sentence itself made you...

Re: Harry Potter : Potter Verse REDUX

Much appreciated, and you're right about this being an exhibit of "creative differences" highlighted by an author change. I had the same experience back when I mocked True Masters , where Tracker-02 handed the story over to Draco122. What few interesting bits that could be salvaged from the first pa...

Re: Yugioh: The Divine Conspiracy

I'm utterly lost whenever I read this fanfic. I’ve said it before, but I feel it needs repeating. I don't know who anyone is. I don't know who the heroes are, because everything they do is either selfish or deplorable. I don't know who the villains are, because they're so ineffective that they pose ...

Re: Harry Potter : Potter Verse REDUX

Ding-ding, round two! ------------------------ There was a long moment of stunned silence as they let that sink in before Harry pressed on yet again. "That isn't my only iron in the fire so to speak. It came to my attention during one of my midnight jaunts around the castle that Theia's and my own ...

Re: Harry Potter : Potter Verse REDUX

We’re finally at the end of this mess. With the authorship now changing hands fully, how can I best summarize what has happened thus far? Half of the story, Mateos had Harry grind himself up to a super human level of ability by reducing the entire world to his videogame sandbox. For the other half,...
