* [=InTheGallbladder=]: I loved ''Overmyth.'' Watching [=ReadingForever=]'s OC Patta grow over the course of the story was not just riveting, but it taught me a few things about myself as well. Plus, I just plain like True Pacifist-end {{Fix Fic}}s. Which is why it's all the more vexing that the story ends on the limpest excuse for a SequelHook ever: Early in the last chapter, [[spoiler:Another OC, with no foreshadowing, comes, quite literally, out of nowhere (which is where Patta happens to be at the time). She describes herself as being "from a higher plane of existence" than all prior established characters, canon and fic-specific alike, and prides herself in taking credit for making Frisk go into Mt. Ebbott by shoving them past the DespairEventHorizon. She's outright contemptuous of Patta, and this shows in everything she does, down to whipping out a piece of never-before-mentioned {{Magitek}}; it bluntly declares that the one thing he is still physically capable of doing is, and never wasn't, a totally doomed effort. The exposition describes this as an instance of OOCIsSeriousBusiness.]] This is somehow supposed to make me want to look at [=ReadingForever=]'s forthcoming ''Undertale''[=/=]''Persona'' crossover. If anything, it's put me off whatever they may endeavor to do next.

* [=RickTommy=]: ''FanFic/PokemonAMarvelousJourney''. The author's previous work based on the same franchise, ''FanFic/SylviaTheSylveon'', is articulate, well-written, has likeable characters, and doesn't rely on clichés to be good. Oh, and it's a jillion times better than a lot of the other crap I've seen. ''Marvelous Journey'', on the other hand, is an ''extreme'' regression in quality. Seriously, you'd be surprised it has the same author as one of my all-time favourite fics... Why are the mons' names not capitalised? Why do the characters act older (I don't know any 13-year-olds who are/were like the main character's older sister)? Why are there no characters who are as likeable as ''Sylvia'''s characters? Why the obsessive-compulsive names given to the characters? Why the use of real-world brands? Why the overuse of "facepalm" and other words that you would not expect to find in a professional publication? Why the overuse of "Julia thought (insert Pokémon name here) looked more like a (whatever it [supposedly] resembles) than a (what the Pokédex calls it)"? Why the overuse of certain other phrases? Why the incorrect portrayal of certain attacks, one of which is in ''the first chapter''? Why the unbalanced 'mon genders? And why the overall DarkerAndEdgier tone?

* SenorCornholio: Since [[Fanfic/MyLittleUnicorn My Little Unicorn]] already has its own page, let's talk about DakariKingMykan's other crowning achievement, [[Fanfic/TheEndOfEnds The End of Ends]]. It's exactly as much of a wangst-ridden [[AuthorTract Author Tract]] as you would expect, and there are plenty of moments to choose from. I could have put [[BigBad Count Logan's]] ([[TheUnreveal actually Beast Boy's]]) reasons for blowing up Tamaran being that he was upset that Starfire and Robin got together while he didn't get back with Terra, but I think there's a moment that's far worse. A fair warning: this one's slightly going into meta territory. At the end, Logan performs a [[HeelFaceTurn heel-face turn]] and helps defeat [[TheStarscream Dr. Beljar]]...[[DroppedABridgeOnHim and then Logan dies]]. After that fact, some fans (yes, this fic actually has fans) were sad and upset because of his death, to which Mykan responded with his reasoning: [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer because Terra had left him in "Things Change", he is doomed to die even if he is redeemed and Terra gets back with him!]] Let's ignore the fact that Logan was an outright terrible VillainProtagonist to begin with and that plenty of his actions in the story, even as Beast Boy, fall under DesignatedHero more so than his [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo TTG Counterpart]]; Mykan believes he should die because Terra dumped him, and not even her becoming a Titan again and actually coming back to Logan can't change that! Even as someone who finds this fic to be pretty pathetic and Logan to be a badly written character, I can honestly say that this guy's reasoning is...just no, Mykan...

* DrY9K: The VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2 fanfic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10831245/1/A-Couple-of-Misfits A Couple of Misfits]] would be decent if it didn't decide to keep Foxy as an [[spoiler:UndeadChild]] as he is in the game, and portray Mangle as a non-[[spoiler:possessed]] robot. The author decides Foxy being a [[spoiler:murder victim]] isn't important and what is important is that he and Mangle become close friends/lovers, essentially making the story a case of "[[spoiler:[[{{Squick}} dead child X soulless, deteriorating robot]]]]," and yet the author thinks this is [[DudeNotFunny cute]]?!?

* Tropers/Candycane14: What did [[Franchise/TheSmurfs Handy]] ever do to deserve the SlashFic "I Love you Handy"?! Even as a slash fan I hate this fic... Long story short, Handy suffers the worst form of {{Wimpification}} in the fic as he gets into a relationship with Hefty (who, by the way, [[IncestYayShipping are revealed to be brothers by Papa Smurf]]). Furthermore, there are a lot of UnfortunateImplications -- if you're best friends with someone, it means you wanna have constant sodomy with them, Rape Equals Love, girl's first choices are hot muscled guys, and more I'll get to below. Now, toward the end of the fic, Hefty gets gravely injured when trying to save Handy from Gargamel and dies. What does Handy do? He blames Greedy for not coming to help sooner and attacks him. Uh, no, prick! It's your own fault for [[IdiotBall not listening to Papa's advice to stay out of the woods, getting lost into the forest without preparing anything for support, and getting captured]]! Over the next few chapters Handy doesn't do anything but cry. And then the fic pulls an AssPull of epic proportions: Hefty is brought back to life ''because of'' all Handy's crying. ... And what's worse, this in a fic co-written by two authors who get lots of praise for it.
