* After reading most of Peter Chimeara's works as well ''MyImmortal'', I've come to realize that even horrible fiction can be deep and meaningful upon drunken nights and deep consideration. ''{{Doom Repercussions of Evil}}'', itself a parody of twist-heavy pretentious faux-deep fiction, has deep insight into the motives and drive of the human race. Don't get me started on analogues to racism. Then there's ''Batman: Nemesis Fight'', which if played straight and filmed, would be BY FAR the best Batman movie ever made. Why does Robin leave batman? Because Batman has broken his own rules after losing everything. Ergo, Robin loses the will to fight. Regarding My Immortal, Tara Gilesbie creates a fictional world so completely bizarre and surreal that it's hard to call it anything but original. Put simply, gay vampire witch goffs go to a magic school, split on West Side Story style grounds.

* It took me reading [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5169753/21/The_Trouble_with_Weather The Trouble with Weather]] (an [[AlternateUniverse AU]] {{Film/X-Men}} fic) about three times before I had a moment of FridgeBrilliance. In chapter twenty-one, Ororo tells Logan that humans had put her in a cage; Logan then wonders if there was some kind of hidden meaning or test in what she'd said, since her expression to his reaction is described as "disappointment," and "her eyes had been searching" as she'd told him about being in a cage. Here's where the FridgeBrilliance kicks in: in the very next chapter, Logan has a dream/flashback of rescuing an eight-year-old Ororo from a cage, and it's revealed later in the fic that Ororo hadn't forgotten that incident. Ororo was hoping that Logan would've remembered it, too!

* This can occur quite a lot in ''Hetalia Axis Powers'' AU fanfiction. They'll be the obvious relations there, but sometimes you look back at a situation and realise that the author has written the entire base outline of WW2 in the form of a soccer game.

* Back before I became a co-author of ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/1319848 Something New]]'', an earlier version of this story had a scene where Scout's mother was described as blushing despite my headcanon suggesting that she's in her late 50s. Once I came to the point where she revealed that [[spoiler:she's pregnant again]] and did some research, it hit me. She might've actually [[spoiler:conceived naturally thanks to being on hormone replacement therapy (HRT)]]; it's remarkably similar to the case of Dawn Brooke, a British woman who was 59 years old when she gave birth by way of C-section in 1997.

* ''FanFic/PersonaEG'' introduces early on the Canterbook network, which is clearly meant to be this story's equivalent of {{Website/Facebook}} and is used internally by the Canterlot High student body. The fridge brilliance comes in when you realize that this is ''exactly'' what Facebook was when it was created: an internal social network used exclusively by high school students.

* Watching AMVHell 5, I was amused by the pairing of ''{{Manga/Gantz}}'' with the song Singing in the Rain, thinking it a matter of LyricalDissonance of a lighthearted song paired with violence. Then I remembered ''Film/AClockworkOrange''...

* The FruitsBasket fanfic "Eyes of the Cat" is known for a few things - but two of those things are a lot of filler chapters, and having one of the only likable Original Characters in all of fanfiction - the second is because Kyo and the OC mesh well together (and, thankfully, purely in a platonic sense). Its only if you reread the fanfic from the beginning, and read it all the way through in one sitting that you realize those filler chapters are designed solely to alter Kyo's character in a believable way. Each of those chapters describes events which, on their own, are humorous but plotless; its only when read together that you realize you are actually watching Kyo's character evolve and change in a realistic fashion because of those events while still keeping the main attributes of his original character.

** One might argue that Creator/AgentMatt's works are the same way. For anybody who's read his fanfics regarding ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretShow'', you might've noticed that all of them revolve around the popular OneTruePairing of the show. Well, that's because they're supposed to be StealthParodies of fanfics that pervert the characters to fit the narrative of said pairing being soulmates forever and ever. (For example, "Anita's Birthday Gift" and "Sneaky Agent" both have plots where Alphonse has been given the RonTheDeathEater treatment to manipulate the readers into rooting for Victor, who is by and large a [[PossessionSue Possession]] RelationshipSue.
