''Fanfic/MyInnerLife'' is a rather legendarily bad piece of ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]]'' fanfic, which you can read about in more detail over on its own page. Here, we're going to discuss the various adaptations it's had.

!!The manwithoutabody DramaticReading adds examples of:

* {{Angrish}}: There is a wordless outburst of fury during the scene where Jenna gets drunk while pregnant. Seems to be a BerserkButton for him.
** He inserts a clip from SexyBeast consisting of [[RapidFireNo "No no no no no no!"]] When we learn of Link's last name, or the name of the Planet.
* DeadpanSnarker: After Dalamar's Scottish accent made him somewhat likable, all his dialogue (particularly any reference to Link and Jenna as his friends) is delivered in a very sarcastic tone.
* DVDCommentary: The annotations, chock full of snarky remarks putting down the author and the story at every opportunity, more or less function as this.
* EarlyBirdCameo: "Sparkling/Abusive boyfriends? I'm not doing ''Literature/MidnightSun'' yet..."
* FakeBrit, to cover up the ElmuhFuddSyndwome.
* HeAlsoDid: A DramaticReading of ''AtlantaNights''. Shameless self-promotion, ahoy!
* LadyMondegreen: In-Universe, we have Hugh, born of bad spelling.
* LargeHam. Also HamAndCheese. The story isn't worth the least bit of effort, but he certainly seems to be having a good time.
* LarynxDissonance: Particularly with Jenna and Saria.
** With Saria it seemed to be done on purpose after a while. What with Saria speaking in this really gruff Bronxy man tone.
* {{Leitmotif}}:
** In the DramaticReading, whenever "[[BadassPreacher the preacher]]" talks, "Lord I Been Changed" starts playing. Dig that kickass gospel.
** Also, Dalamar quickly becomes associated with bagpipes, in a ''PeterAndTheWolf'' sort of way.
* MilkingTheGiantCow: You can't see it, but it's there.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Mundane, BeigeProse tasks, described in '''AN IMPROBABLY EPIC TONE OF VOICE!''' Hell, he even makes ''formatting errors'' sound awesome. EMBED PBRUSH!
** Special mentions when out all the other things he could emphasize he chooses to emphasize "WHILE I DID THE DISHES!"
* RunningGag:
** References to ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames''.
** Every time the word "pleasure" is said, a clip of Matt Berry saying it on ''SnuffBox'' is used.
** Every time the word "water" is said, a clip of Matt Berry saying it as George the Volcano in the infamous ads for Volvic bottled water is used.
*** Once Jenna discovers her elemental powers, the other three elements ([[ComicStrip/FlashGordon Earth]], [[Music/BobDylan Wind]] and [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Fire]]) get this treatment as well.
** Every time Jenna thinks about having children with Link, a clip of Creator/BelaLugosi's "Atomic Supermen" speech from Creator/EdWood's ''Film/BrideOfTheMonster'' is used.
*** OverusedRunningGag, with LampshadeHanging in the commentary boxes. It stopped eventually, once it would have gotten out of hand.
** Every time the story mentions how much Link wants a son, "[[Music/HermansHermits I'm Henry VIII, I Am"]] is played.
** Every time Jen says "minuet" when she clearly means "minute", the Minuet of Forest (from ''Ocarina of Time'') starts playing.
** Whenever Link gives Jenna a gift, the ItemGet music from ''Ocarina of Time'' plays until she opens it.
** Every time the monks chant for the Bonding Ceremony, Blue Swede's "Hooked on a Feeling" starts playing.
--->Oogachokka oogachokka ooga ooga oogachokka...
** Every time Jenna's head "snaps" in a direction, there's the neck-breaking clip from ''{{Creepshow}}''.
** [[TheRockyHorrorPictureShow Antici...pation.]]
** Due to the author's belief that the names of certain things (chiefly gemstones, but in one case seagulls) need to be capitalized, the narrator conveys this by putting a very hard emphasis on them.
* ShoutOut: Most of the character voices are "borrowed" from other sources:
** ''Every'' character with a counterpart in [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames the CDi games]] has that same voice, or at least a game effort at it. His Zelda and Impa [[LarynxDissonance are a bit lacking]], but his "The King" is okay, and his Link is surprisingly uncanny.
** Navi has the same voice as the characters from ''WebAnimation/TeenGirlSquad''; this was apparently unintentional (she was just meant to be as grating as possible), but since it was pointed out to him, he seems to be [[AscendedFanon playing it up more]]. Nabooru is based on WebAnimation/HomestarRunner himself.
** Lilly sounds like Joan Rivers.
** The recurring "healer" character is based on Terl from ''[[Film/BattlefieldEarth Battlefield Earth]]''. With a spot of Prof. Scudworth from ''CloneHigh''.
** Rauru is ChristopherWalken.
** [[RougeAnglesOfSatin Daurina]] is [[Series/BarneyAndFriends Barney the Dinosaur]], though he also sounds very much like Tristan from ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''; the two sound alike enough that Little Kuriboh once joked Barney ''was'' voicing Tristan. "Daurina" is also [[{{Expy}} a recycling]] of the Steven Suffern voice from ''AtlantaNights''.
** Aria has the voice of Terry-Thomas.
** Saria gradually becomes Doctor Girlfriend from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''.
** Dark Link is [[BamanPiderman Piderman]]. Although he gradually comes to sound more like WebAnimation/HomestarRunner.
** The villainous Dark Knights are the Moonenites from ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce''. The Moonenites also showed up as a pair of convicts in ''AtlantaNights''.
** The griffin innkeeper is [[TalkLikeAPirate Robert]] [[TreasureIsland Newton]].
** Tanis, a griffin silk merchant, is Stewie from ''FamilyGuy''. Griffin. Get it?
*** The griffin elder, Alhana, sounds a little like Peter Griffin.
** The griffin guardsmen talk in Stephen Hawking-esque RoboSpeak.
** One of the Hyrule Castle guards happens to be named [[SarahPalin Palin]]. This is, of course, milked for all it's worth.
* ScheduleSlip: Avoided where possible, but sometimes RealLife and ''ThePiratesOfPenzance'' intervene.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: All Dalamar really wants is to be rid of Link and Jenna.
* SoundtrackDissonance: Music/{{Cake}}'s cover of "Mahna Mahna" is played over one of the worst and longest of the sex scenes.
* TalkyBookends: Inverted. Pieces of music are used as bookends to all the talking.
* {{Understatement}}: The fic involves LucidDreaming and is LeftHanging, "like ''{{Inception}}'', but not as good."
* ViolentGlaswegian: Averted, as Dalamar is portrayed as the OnlySaneMan who desperately hates the other characters.
* WildMassGuessing: The narrator speculates that the king probably dies during the war against Ariakis and Zelda, despite being the rightful ruler, abdicates to Link and Jenna for no reason. In one version of the ending, Jenna [[Film/TheKingsSpeech gets speech therapy classes]] from Creator/GeoffreyRush. In another, she is accosted by the screaming crone from ''Film/ThePrincessBride''.
-->Sue! Sue!
* WriteWhoYouKnow: The Deku Tree's voice is based on that of a history professor.

!! The [[{{MST}} MSTs]] provide examples of:

* {{Angrish}}: Slash falls into this a few times.
* AuthorFilibuster: All MST authors stop at some points to rant about how bad something is.
* TheCameo: All of the sex scenes in Zelda Queen's MST are done by different people.
* ClusterFBomb: Slash's MST.
* DeadpanSnarker: Ganondorf in Zelda Queen's MST.
* HeroicBSOD: Suffered by Link in Zelda Queen's MST.
* RunningGag: "THROUGH!" and "COMMA!" for Zelda Queen, "GET ON WITH IT" for Slash.
** Also the Triforce and Eye Description counts for Slash until she dumped them as an OverlyLongGag.
** Zelda Queen's "Paging the DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment" count.
** Chloe and Maddi's ''Gannon Banned'' Counter, and their Queer count.
** The Pocket Dimension of Horrible Fanfiction riff has clips of actual animal sounds spliced into sex scenes and Ganondorf punching the host for bad jokes.
* SanitySlippage: Slash suffered so much that she had to use her own characters to MST it because she couldn't do it by herself.
** Link in the Pocket Dimension riff suffers a few.
* ScheduleSlip: Tropers/SlashPrower and Tropers/ThatKidInTheBasement both suffer from this.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After the chapter in which Jenna's baby is blessed, Zelda Queen eats a special brownie to put herself in a coma. She wakes up two chapters later.
** A more [[http://riffingacademy.livejournal.com/8709.html recent take]], as done by some of the Ocarina of Time cast, has Zelda herself leave about 2/3s of the way through the disclaimer. Then the riffers have to get up and leave to fight off some GoddamnedBats.
* TroperWorks: All of them.
* ViewersAreMorons: Tropers/ThatKidInTheBasement points out that the author seems to think this, since she has to describe things that are common knowledge, like ''dreams.''
* WildMassGuess: Zelda Queen theorizes that the level of character derailment in the fic is proportional to how much ShipTease there was in the game, as well as that Link's Queen is not a native English speaker and mixed up "eyes" for something like "face".
** Or that Link's Queen has some connection to ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''.
** The Pocket Dimension riffs host figures that the Malon and Ruto oneshot song fics have the music provided by the cows trying to form a band and a Zora barbershop quartet.

!! The[[http://www.youtube.com/user/sims2reenactments#g/u Sims 2 Re-enactment]] provides examples of:

* TheAbridgedSeries: Somewhat. It skims over the birth scene and TheReveal of Jenna as a Silverlite, while it skips the sex scenes entirely due to the limitations brought on by software.
* RecycledScript: It uses the audio from Tropers/ManWithoutABody's dramatic reading.
