A fledgling epic, ''For Good'' is [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1758544/Aleine_Skyfire Aleine Skyfire’s]] AlternateUniverse for BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand. The first and only multi-chaptered fic for the series, [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4695546/1/For_Good_I_Breakaway Breakaway]], is based on the concept of how one person can make a big impact. And with an expanded summary on [[http://www.fanfiction.net FF.N]], how "a handful of people" can impact the galaxy.

The protagonist, Erin Frame, is an {{OC}}, but the unique concept of the story is that she is a [[BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand BLoSC]] fan time-traveled to the Galactic Alliance. Her characterization is carefully developed throughout the fic as a dynamic character; the characterizations of Team Lightyear and Warp Darkmatter are also handled with care and realism. Chapters 9 and 10 introduce [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters some important new characters]], along with [[DarkAndTroubledPast a Zurg subplot]] and [[NextGenFic a new direction for the story at The Academy]]. The series appears to be headed eventually for some kind of galactic war, as hinted at in the prologue and Chapter 10 - thus justifying the author's use of the word "epic".

* DarkerAndEdgier: Than [[BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand the show]] in general, though ''Breakaway'' doesn't exactly skimp on the comedic moments, either.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** Warp and Zomega qualify.
** As do Erin's dorm-mates, especially Ricki.
*** Averted with Ice: "My family is very strictly [[FantasticRacism Tangean Isolationist]] — that means they avoid Off-Worlder stuff like the plague."
** As a bookworm, Erin also qualifies.
*** Especially since she's a time-traveled [[BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand BLoSC]] fan, who will not interfere with pre-established events for fear of disrupting the time/space-continuum beyond repair.
*** [[spoiler: This means that she will allow herself to become a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent wirewolf]], however briefly. You've got to admire her dedication.]]
*** She is the only character thus far to ''purposefully'' lampshade any tropes.

[[folder:The Roleplay Arc]]
* ActionGirl: Mira Nova, Erin Darkmatter, Liz Sherman, Cora Lightyear.
** Mira becomes an ActionMom once Cora hits the scene.
* {{Adorkable}}: Buzz as a dad.
* AntagonisticOffspring: Cora is a pretty sassy kid.
* BerserkButton: Buzz's is, interestingly, family - do NOT mess with the man's sister or daughter.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Buzz, in overdrive, at times.
* BilingualBonus: Erin is still speaking Spanish.
* BoldlyComing: XR on Liz. Erin rebukes him, but Liz is actually flattered.
* TheCaptain: Buzz remains this, [[CharacterArc though he finds himself trying to balance his work with his family...]]
* CardCarryingVillain: Invoked by Zurg.
* CharacterDevelopment:
** Warp in a HeelFaceTurn.
** Hellboy in a FaceHeelTurn.
** Buzz and Mira as they explore their [[RelationshipUpgrade increasingly romantic relationship]].
* {{Crossover}}: With Film/{{Hellboy}} - Hellboy (Red) and Liz Sherman were played by the same person.
** Also a crossover between two different [[FanVerse authors' universes]], ''For Good'' and ''Beginning of the End''.
* CurbStompBattle: Any time "Red" fights Buzz - [[TheCaptain Captain Galaxy]] really gets the tables turned on him.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Once Hellboy hit the scene, literally, things quickly got dark for a while.
* DespairEventHorizon: For Hellboy, the realization that he is effectively TrappedInAnotherWorld. He's helped along in his FaceHeelTurn by [[TheCorrupter Zurg]].
* DysfunctionalFamily: Let's see... a [[TimeTravel time-traveled]] [[AntagonisticOffspring teenage]] [[ActionGirl daughter]] to parents who want to be but aren't yet married in present time? Plus the [[ActionMom mom's]] [[FantasticRacism racist father]] [[ParentalMarriageVeto very much objecting]] to his daughter uniting in matrimony with a human? ''And'' the [[TeamDad dad's]] adopted sister's husband being the guy who used to be TheMole ''and'' the dad's best friend and ended up doing a HeelFaceTurn? Not to mention the veeery subtle FandomNod to ''Fanfic/{{One Hundred Days|BuzzLightyear}}'', implying that DaChief is the dad's grandfather. Are you confused yet?
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Both Zurg and Hellboy attest this.
* HeroicBSOD: Erin upon seeing the church on-fire - she has a flashback of her arrival into the [[BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand BLoSC]] era.
* HeroicResolve: A dream version of Erin spurs Buzz on to rising to his feet after receiving a [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown pretty heavy pounding]] from Hellboy. Serves as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, considering that Buzz is even able to ''stand''.
* InterspeciesRomance: Warp and Erin; Buzz and Mira.
* ItsPersonal: Interconnects with Buzz's BerserkButton.
** As well as Warp's... sheesh, do ''not'' mess with his girl.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Warp - most of the time, anyway.
* KirkSummation: Erin (and Buzz) try this on Hellboy in the hopes that he'll leave. His basic response is a ShutUpKirk.
* LargeHam: Zurg, of course!
* LoveHurts: Though the heroes firmly believe in ThePowerOfLove (and their faith is justified), they go through a lot of things for love.
* LukeIAmYourFather: A realization, though, rather than a declaration.
* TheOtherDarrin: Done twice, first with Zurg (switched with consent from Saron to EEZ), then with King Nova (switched from EEZ to Skyfire, but in completely different threads and parts of the story).
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: A fairly mild version by Zurg, directed at Buzz. It gets creepy when you consider that Zurg sounds more like some sort of dark mentor rather than Buzz's archenemy.
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: The gist of Zurg's ideals in one conversation between himself and Buzz. Justified when you think of his DarkAndTroubledPast as written by his roleplayer.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: With the players providing Buzz & Erin and Warp on one side, the players providing Zurg and Hellboy & Liz on the other, and the player providing Mira and Woody in-between (usually further on the idealistic side, though). It made for interesting dynamics.
* StormingTheCastle: Buzz, Booster, and XR try this on the Z Tower. Turns into an EpicFail when they're OutGambitted by the [[MagnificentBastard Evil]] [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Emperor]].
* TallDarkAndSnarky: Warp's roleplayer lived and breathed this trope.
** For that matter, Hellboy was pretty much this trope, himself.
* TimeTravel: Used so much that it gets deconstructed!
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: Played straight with Erin and Hellboy (Buzz even compares and contrasts them once), then subverted with Cora and Liz.
* {{Troperiffic}}: With so much talent and creativity collaborating on the story? You bet!
* WeddingSmashers: Zurg's plot for revenge against his ex-henchman, enacted by Hellboy, who initiates a CurbStompBattle. At least he waits until Warp and Erin say their vows.
* WorldWarIII: Discussed between Erin and Liz.
** It was nuclear. Berlin was leveled. And Erin’s brother Paul was in the thick of it.

* BrownEyes: Erin. The color acts as a reminder of her Spanish-Jewish heritage and as an symbol of her normalcy amongst so many BlueEyes (Buzz, Mira, and Warp). In the roleplay, she was established as a pro at using PuppyDogEyes, and, for having such a normal eye color, she can still do a [[HeldGaze piercing stare]] with the best of them.
