* CharacterExaggeration: Due to the themes and character types that appear in the [[{{Opera}} operettas]], and corresponding limitations on the subject matter available in the verses, the verses for some ''Total Drama Island'' characters tend to focus on peripheral aspects.
** Chef Hatchet’s verses focus mainly on his military background.
** Cody’s verses focus mainly on his [[HopelessSuitor unsuccessful suit]] for Gwen’s affections.
** The verses for Geoff, Bridgette and Tyler focus mainly on their romantic relationships.

''Total Drama Island, by Gilbert and Sullivan'' (commonly abbreviated TDI-G&S, pronounced "Tiddigus") is a crossover based on a straightforward question, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as stated]] in the Introduction: {{What if}} Creator/GilbertAndSullivan had written ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Total Drama Island]]'' (TDI)? It was written by [[http://totaldramaislandfanfiction.wikia.com/wiki/User:Gideoncrawle Gideoncrawle]].

TDI-G&S is technically an [[AllMusicalsAreAdaptations adaptation]] of ''Total Drama Island'', but is really more a work of scholarship. In fact, the author doesn't even call it a "story", he calls is a "compilation". ''Total Drama Island, by Gilbert and Sullivan'' uses songs and recitatives from the Gilbert & Sullivan [[{{Opera}} operettas]] (which would probably be called [[TheMusical musicals]] if written today) to retell the canon story arc of ''Total Drama Island'', effectively turning TDI into a comic opera--in essence, a [[SongFic song fic]] expanded [[UpToEleven exponentially]].

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Invoked. Because Cody's verses relate mainly to his [[HopelessSuitor unsuccessful suit]] for Gwen's affections, the cumulative effect is to depict him as a much more tragic and pitiable figure than the one that ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Total Drama Island]]'' portrays.

* AuthorAppeal: The author is a fan of both ''Total Drama Island'' and [[Creator/GilbertAndSullivan Gilbert & Sullivan]], and the whole point of crossing the two is to introduce to one readers who are familiar with the other.

Added DiffLines:

* AllMusicalsAreAdaptations: Although the purpose of this work is different from a typical musical, the effect is similar. [[MetaphoricallyTrue In a sense]], it remakes ''Total Drama Island'' as a comic opera.

#A “Guide to Incidents” presenting synopses of the TDI episodes in whatever level of detail is needed to support the verse references and to allow the uninitiated reader to understand the episode’s major events. Every episode has at least 13 verse references, and one has nearly 100. The synopses themselves are similar to the plot summaries that one might find on a ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Total Drama]]'' reference website, but with a more storylike flavor. The synopses also include [[LemonyNarrator commentary]] on certain storylines and characterizations to aid uninitiated readers, because TDI-G&S was originally written for a general interest website.

The compilation is available in two versions: a web-based version and a downloadable PDF file. The web-based version omits the “Introduction to ''Total Drama Island''” section because it resides on a website dedicated to fan fiction for the ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Total Drama]]'' series. The web-based version also has numerous embedded music videos for some of the songs, whereas the PDF version has many more screenshots from the show.

* AdaptationDistillation: The ''Total Drama Island'' episode summaries have what is needed to support the verse references and keep the plot coherent, but little more. The summaries rarely go two paragraphs without a verse reference.

Added DiffLines:

* LemonyNarrator: The "just the facts" character of the episode summaries doesn't preclude drollery. For example, a certain summary doesn't just say, "Bridgette alarms a family of skunks and gets sprayed." Instead, it says, "Bridgette alarms a family of skunks and pays the customary penalty."
