The basic premise is that Dot Murray is moving to Sleepyside, the hometown of our protagonists, the Bob-Whites (For information on the fandom's reaction to said character, check out the YMMV section of the TrixieBelden page). In contrast to canon, where she was a subject of Trixie's envy but otherwise well-liked by the group, each one of them now dislikes her, [[InformedFlaw with the only explanation provided that Dot is "fake."]] Dot arrives, and the Bob-Whites thinly veil their disdain for her and complain that the adults leave them no choice but to include Dot in their activities. Dot, who had not a single line in the single TrixieBelden book she appeared in, is [[DieForOurShip quickly characterized]] as an [[TooDumbToLive oblivious]], [[AnythingThatMoves slutty]], [[ItsAllAboutMe self-centered]] teenage girl [[{{Retcon}} who hates Trixie]] and [[TheVamp is trying to steal Jim for herself.]]

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8264126/1/You-Have-Got-to-Be-Kidding-Me You Have Got To Be Kidding Me]]'' by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/3613997/Daughterof8 Daughterof8]] is a one-shot TrixieBelden FanFiction story that is actually well-constructed in terms of grammar and spelling. As far as the fandom goes, it's fairly mundane, as it focuses on teenage romance without much character development, or [[OutOfCharacterMoment even heed to canonical characterization.]] What makes this fic notable is the unashamed but seemingly unintentional invoked tropes of RonTheDeathEater, {{Slutshaming}}, DieForOurShip, and MadonnaWhoreComplex, which are interspersed through a rather unimaginative fic that has nothing to offer in plot.

\n\n* VagueAge: How old is Dot supposed to be, anyway? She was canonically Jim's age, which implies she would be in college, but the text seems to infer she's in high school.

Added DiffLines:

** She's not unattractive at all, actually, the guys are just appalled by her forwardness.


Added DiffLines:

* FelonyMisdemeanor: One of the indicators of Dot's "antagonism" is her red bikini, in contrast to the other girls' one pieces.

* DesignatedHero: All of the Bob-Whites, who barely make an effort to be friendly to Dot.
* DesignatedVillain: Dot is supposed to be despicable for being sexually aware and willing to chase guys.
* DieForOurShip: Poor Dot. The entire fic is basically a love letter to this trope.



* RonTheDeathEater: Dot is written as a petty, jealous, and promiscuous girl in order to make Trixie look better.

The Bob-Whites barely tolerate Dot's presence until she makes an offensive remark to Trixie, at which Jim delivers a harsh riposte rather than allow Trixie to stand up for herself. There's some arbitrary romance between Trixie and Jim, and then the story ends, before not before establishing, one last time, that [[{{Slutshaming}} Dot is a total slut.]]

!!This fanfiction story contains examples of:

* AbhorrentAdmirer: One of Dot's [[SarcasmMode horrific crimes]] is that she actively pursues Jim, and later, Dan, neither of whom are interested in her.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Dot's attraction to Dan, though her depiction suggests she would chase any guy.
* DesignatedHero: All of the Bob-Whites, who barely make an effort to be friendly to Dot.
* DesignatedVillian: Dot is supposed to be despicable for being sexually aware and willing to chase guys.
* DieForOurShip: Poor Dot. The entire fic is basically a love letter to this trope.
* DoubleStandard: Dan is frequently depicted as a notorious skirt-chaser in fanfic, and other characters casually tease him about it, while here Dot is scorned and disdained for actively expressing interest in boys.
* MadonnaWhoreComplex: Frequently, but especially when their bathing suits are mentioned: Trixie wears a "one-piece light blue bathing suit," while Dot is attired in a "red bikini." Really, the entire fic is extremely evocative of the MadonnaWhoreComplex with the strong condemnation of a young woman's sexuality.
* NoGuyWantsToBeChased: Could be a freakin' moral of this story. Both Jim and Dan are disgusted with Dot for her pursuit of them.
* RonTheDeathEater: Dot is written as a petty, jealous, and promiscuous girl in order to make Trixie look better.
* SexIsEvil: Dot is obviously intended to be portrayed negatively due to her awareness of her sexuality.
* {{Slutshaming}}: BLATANTLY. Dot's sexuality is intended to be positively deplorable to the readers.
