The '''Mediochre Q Seth''' series, otherwise "The Mediochreverse" or just "The Mediochre Series" - although that last [[IThoughtItMeant sounds unfortunate]] – is an in-progress five-part UrbanFantasy series by Calum P Cameron. He started writing it while in high school, primarily out of boredom, but also out of a desire to see if he could write a story about a [[MarySue unique and powerful]] [[Series/DoctorWho Doctor-like]] individual while having them [[DeconstructedTrope remain realistically human and fallible]].

* AuthorAvatar: Mediochre looks much like the author did aged fifteen. The author has also noted that, personality-wise, Mediochre is similar to what he would be if he was an idealist. And more {{badass}}.

* BadassTeacher: Mediochre and Joseph are both university professors. Joseph actually has an apprentice with him during most of his adventures – although the apprentice is also a {{Badass}} and doesn't really need protecting.

* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: As a child, Dhampinella has long hair and a demure EmotionlessGirl personality, in contrast to her adult self's BoyishShortHair and stoic {{Badass}} personality.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: Antler.



* BlondesAreEvil: Guinevere Spencer certainly qualifies.



* BlondGuysAreEvil: The Scruffs – although an argument could perhaps be made that Valentine is more Blond Guys Are NotEvilJustMisunderstood (and Really Bad at Thinking About Things).
