*** And, sadly, it looks like ''that'' "ending" is the only ending that series is going to get.

* Done in a similar vein on ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' in which Alex writes a graphic novel and, due to being a wizard, can actually [[PortalPicture "live it"]], turning herself in [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses a princess]].

** "Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps" features each member of the study group telling a scary story. In every one, the characters of the story are [[WriteWhatYouKnow clearly analogous to]] (and played by) members of the study group. Every one has elements of this, but the worst offender is Pierce, who tells a story about Magnum, a young, virile man who is still relevant, pausing from having sex with three women at once to beat up a pair of gun-wielding hoodlums with his GagPenis. Runner-up is Shirley, who writes a ''LeftBehind''-esque story about a bunch of jerks who bullied their nice Christian friend who definitely isn't named Shirley, but then the Rapture comes and she saves them from Satan with her powers of faith just long enough to forgive them for mocking her before going to Heaven. [[HypocriticalHumor Leaving them all to be horribly tortured by Satan.]]

A form of StylisticSuck. Whenever an in-universe author or creator not established as being a (passable) writer [[ShowWithinAShow creates a story]], the main character will be a blatant AuthorAvatar MarySue. Whatever they want, their character gets. Often, all the other primary characters will [[WriteWhoYouKnow have their actual fictional counterparts of their own as well]], usually with [[{{Flanderization}} one or two traits exaggerated greatly]] and generally portrayed in the light that the character sees them. This may include the villain of the story being based on a character the writer doesn't like. Most of the time, these stories will be treated as being pretty bad by the other characters (whether or not they express it depends on how nice they're feeling), and the work will often raise [[UnfortunateImplications implications]] about their friend's desires and feelings about the people around him [[MuseAbuse that will raise eyebrows]]. This is all usually played up for comedy, however the trope could also be used to tell the audience what the character writing the story wants and what he thinks of other characters, etc.

* In the ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' comic ''Better Days'', the crew tells stories about what they'll do with their cut of the giant pile of cash they've scored. When Jayne tells his story, he's a BadAss [[TheCaptain Captain]] of a ship that's so powerful it commands the respect and fear of the Alliance, has carved out a section of space all to himself, and is surrounded by an all-female crew who refer to him as "Your Manliness."

The other stories are a Creator/DanBrown TakeThat starring a MarySue, and two completely insane but violent works starring obvious {{AuthorAvatar}}s.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' does this when Fern tries to write a story and publish it under a pen name, giving copies out everywhere around the school. She calls it "Happy Happenings" or something similar, and actually ends up taking the criticism of the story well and changes the story to be less...Sue-like.
