* FanFic/UniverseFalls has an adaptation of the "momswap" [=AU=] planned, a FandomSpecificPlot where the Crystal Gems are replaced by the Homeworld Gems (And Lapis Lazuli, but she doesn't really count). Like in other stories, [[MirrorUniverse they are the heroes, and the Crystal gems are the bad guys.]] It also has an upcoming chapter dedicated to a similar tale, only instead of the Gems swapping alignments, [[EvilTwin it's Steven]]. Yeah, it shouldn't come as a surprise that ''Steven Diamond'' is also combined with ''[[MirrorUniverse Reverse Pines.]]''

**''Fanfic/{{MLP}}'' is a deconstruction of the entire show which aims to bring the FridgeHorror and [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar more adult implications]] of the show to the forefront; it is ''also'' a deconstruction of other ''Friendship is Magic'' fanfics. For instance, it ties together the common {{fanon}} that Rainbow Dash is gay with the fact that she moved out of her hometown of Cloudsdale by presenting the theory that she was driven out [[{{Gayngst}} due to homophobia]]. It also emphasizes the VileVillainSaccharineShow and SurpriseCreepy aspects of the show to paint Equestria as a full-fledged CrapsaccharineWorld, and plays the main characters' flaws [[DysfunctionJunction far more seriously and dramatically]] than the original show did.

** ''FanFic/StupidDevilDog'' features Japanese-American MilitaryBrat Saito getting so fed up with Louise's [[SpoiledBrat brattiness]], he outright leaves her. The humiliation makes her a bigger failure in front of her peers. There's also an element of RevengeFic there which pretty much overshadows the attempts at deconstruction, as not only does the story rely on debunked fanon and and author created background elements to justify Saito's feelings and actions, but the story overall feels like taking a dump at everything that annoys the writer.
*** Also like many Familiar of Zero fic, it ignores that the reason's for Louise's actions and behavior towards Saito are grounded in serious emotional issues made possible or created outright by the flaws and customs in her own society. In her own way, she's as much a victim of how things are in Halkeginia as Saito is, yet the fic treats Saito as the only victim of the whole mess.

* ''Fanfic/FirebirdsSon'' is basically the Evangelion/Madoka to the Harry Potter harem fic. The entire thing is dedicated to showing just what a magical society where polygamy is needed by demographics would be like, and the result is a very unpleasant and unsettling place, among other things.

** Lincoln's status as the family ButtMonkey gets nastily shredded in [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12288661/1/A-Dark-House-Inadequate A Dark House Inadequate]]: the abuse, both intentional and unintentional, has literally punished Lincoln to emotional deadness, SelfHarm and [[DrivenToSuicide ultimately a suicide attempt]]. A scene where [[BadMoodAsAnExcuse an irritated Lincoln snaps at Lola]] is PlayedForDrama as the unfairness of Lincoln being essentially scolded ''for being in pain'' and forced to apologize to Lola is palpable, there are several scenes where Lincoln outright states in his head that he feels nothing from gestures of affection or anything that normally would be enjoyable, any sign of Lincoln's turmoil goes completely over the girls' heads, the parents are horrified when Lincoln admits to feeling worthless and having felt that way for two whole months and when Luna and Luan find the evidence of Lincoln's SelfHarm, they utterly FreakOut. Lincoln coming to after [[InterruptedSuicide his failed suicide]] and his sisters' reaction to the attempt is heartbreaking, especially since they've had to come to terms with how much their actions have hurt their brother and how close they came to losing him.



** In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/6212863: Living Without]]'', the FandomSpecificPlot of Hera and Kanan facing an unplaned pregnancy is given a rather sad deconstruction. [[spoiler:Despite them both wanting have a child together, Kanan and Hera realize that they cannot keep it as their responsibilities to the rebellion would make it difficult to raise a baby. Hera decides to abort the pregnancy with Kanan's support, subverting the GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion trope.]]

** ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4825209/1/No-More-Forgiveness No More Forgiveness]]'' attempts deconstructs Goku's behavior, specifically his parenting decisions, by showing ''just'' how badly repeated ParentalAbandonment and being forced to fight monsters from a young age could have affected Gohan if he wasn't so forgiving. Gohan grows angry and disowns his father, while Goku improves spoiler: they never reconcile and continue not to speak to each other. However, the deconstruction is flawed, as it seems to be based on Goku's memetic reputation as a deadbeat, which doesn't actually hold up to what was actually shown in the anime or manga.

**[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8354975/1/When-a-Dream-is-Done When a Dream is Done]] takes apart the frequent fan canon of 'Ash goes to Mt. Silver and becomes a total badass champion'. He does...but not only does he discover that VictoryIsBoring, the isolation and fixation on battles have seriously messed up his mental state and his relationships with everyone he cared about.

** ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11962940/1/ A Brighter Dark]]'' By ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/3371139/DeathDealer-Inc DeathDealer Inc]]'', a ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' retelling, that alters a few characters (and entire countries') personalities to what they would logically be in that setting and then shows how events would play out in that setting.

** ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11574281/1/Shattered-Reflection Shattered Reflection]]'' By ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1318050/Natzo Natzo]]'', a ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' fic, that shows how the Shepherds would naturally react to learning that their tactician was [[spoiler:a demon god that had destroyed the world in an alternate universe.]] It goes further with a bit of time travel taking the lead character to another version of the world to keep her tragic fate from befalling her sibling.
