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.

The new version ends with him weeping.
