Valiona Liveblogs Bad Fan Fiction



I'm going to be doing a liveblog on certain less than stellar works of fan fiction, as something of a side project that I'll update from time to time. As usual, I'll provide commentary as I go through them.

I'd like to point out a few things before I start, though.
  1. The stories are from a variety of fandoms. You don't need to know the canon all that well, because odds are the authors don't know it very well, either.
  2. The titles will often point out which fandom they're based on, often at the start (for example, Half-Life: Full Life Consequences), but if not, they will have it in parentheses in the entry title. (For example, "a sad story (Harry Potter)"
  3. Most of the stories will only be a single chapter long, and will be fairly short, typically between 1,000 and 5,000 words long, with some less than 1,000 words long.
  4. I'll occasionally be doing numbered lists of everything that's wrong with a specific passage or event that contains several blatant mistakes, usually with regards to canon, in rapid succession.
  5. I'll also do The Bechdel Test for the works I cover. To give a refresher, a work passes if it has 1)two female characters, 2)who share at least one conversation, 3)that is not about a male.

So there you have it. Check the Table of Contents for a list of the fan works I'm doing here, and if you find one that interests you, click the link to read its entry.
