MF217 in his natural habitat, showing his distinct love of plushes and goofing around with them.

MF217, AKA MightyFan217 and previously known as Chronicle-King, is a fanfiction author, artist, novice YouTuber and video game designer. He is the creator of the Massively Multiplayer Crossover known as Citadel of the Heart, although is mostly better known for his own original works content much of the time. A 24 year old man diagnosed with Autism at a young age, he began his (current) works beginning with 2014, but didn't begin working on them extensively until late 2015. He does have older works than the fics before Citadel Of The Heart, but he considers almost all of them to be an Old Shame in comparison; not even the Early Installment Weirdness of Truth and Ideals is safe from his views on this. However, despite that, he still believes there to be always room for improvement, even when it comes to his newer stuff; he even views his artwork as of late to be in need of much more improvement, especially in the anatomy department.

MF217 can be kind of an unorthodox individual to speak to directly; on one hand, he can give the image of being a Nice Character, Mean Actor, if merely because this is the kind of behavior he's prone to showcase when he's reached his own Rage Breaking Point. However, much of the time otherwise, he's more of a Mean Character, Nice Actor who simply doesn't have much of the time to sit down and talk with every individual reader of his works anymore; he used to be more social in this regard, as seen in the author's notes of earlier chapters of Truth and Ideals, but by the time he reached a larger amount of watchers and followers, he dropped these replies to his own reviewers entirely and began concentrating on solely getting the work he has to do done. Considering MF217 also has a very, very active gaming lifestyle, needless to say the chances of getting into direct communication with MF217 are rather grim; locked behind the overtly busy schedule MF217 has set up for himself. While he will sometimes try and communicate with select reviewers for his stories, he is rather cautious about approaching his readers ever since an incident with a reviewer in particular that led to him very hastily considering DinoSquad RX to be an Old Shame. However, despite that, he is continuing to work on DinoSquad RX with it getting its remastered version earlier meant to be a Fix Fic for his own Alternate Universe fic.

Works with Trope Pages


    Tropes associated with the work of MF217 

  • Adaptation Deviation: Tends to be used alongside Alternate Universe a lot. The most common of which tends to be Adaptation Personality Change, which in any way or form, canon characters from other works can have their entire characterizations altered solely because due to the Alternate Universe nature of his fics, and the fact the canon verses exist as separate universes entirely, there's no defined rule that he needs to stay Truer to the Text 100% of the time unless he ultimately feels doing so to be the best desirable option. Often times this happens solely because the author takes a What Could Have Been element of a work and reintroduces it into his own fic's context, so the changes in question are necessary at minimum.
  • Affectionate Parody: Even his more serious plots have some rather intentionally silly moments to them, special mention goes to Mirror M's entire debut arc in terms of how it's a deliberate Timey-Wimey Ball Mind Screw with how it works and yet somehow functions.
  • An Aesop: Averted; the author flat out admits he's not writing any of these stories with the overall intent of this trope in mind.
  • Art Evolution:
    • Using a human OC for Digimon as an example, check out Kashou as she looks when drawn in August 5th, 2015, and then again in May 3rd, 2018. While the latter hasn't been shaded yet, the improvements are clear in the fact the latter has a greatly improved grasp of anatomy and proportion than the first drawing of this OC.
    • Keeping in tradition with the author's tendency to draw bestial designs very well, a featherless T. rex in the form of the Queen from Jurassic World as seen here in June 11th, 2015, compared to a drawing sketch that he had made on April 11th, 2018 which features a much more realistic take on Tyrannosaurus minus the feathering, and thus having the correct anatomy and proportions that could technically also been seen from the Queen had it not been for her shrink wrapped nature.
    • Human anatomy practice yet again plays a role in the comparison between a cover artwork made for Truth and Ideals back in 2015 seen here, as opposed to the cover artwork for Starlight Ablaze as best demonstrated here drawn in 2018.
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Ascended Fridge Horror: Any noteworthy cases of Fridge Horror from the original material waiting to be Invoked and brought forth? From their nightmares to yours, tropers!
  • Author Appeal: Expect many aversions of what would've been a case of Status Quo Is God in any fic he writes with the source material being Strictly Formula tendencies.
  • Author Avatar: Grandis, one of the Big three in regards to the Ultimorian Deities, is flat out confirmed to be this as a Deconstructed Character Archetype of Parody Sues.
    "I literally stop hiding the fact Grandis is basically a more ideal version of myself every once in a while. I tend to keep other things secret about him almost completely, though."
  • Character Development: What he especially loves the most when it comes to writing his fics; he views stories as incomplete if certain people try and say characters overshadow the plot when in reality, according to MF217's logic, "No characters = no plot".
  • Continuity Porn: Loves to make use of continuity Call Backs among other things.
  • Creator Thumbprint: The Ultimorian Coat of Arms.
  • Darker and Edgier: No matter what MF217 does in regards to any of his fics compared to each other, but towards the canon source material his fics are always this trope no matter what.
  • Decon-Recon Switch: MF217 prefers to be much more idealistic and colorful with his works, but often times does dose his works into reality and more cynical viewpoints if he ultimately feels it'll make for a nice addition to the story.
  • Deconstructor Fleet: Something he doesn't actively try and do, but it's enough to where Citadel of the Heart got its own page under Deconstruction Fic because of the sheer number of Deconstructions applying all at once.
  • Dimensional Traveler
  • Exact Words: MF217 and Grandis both seem to abuse this trope whenever possible.
  • Fan-Art:
  • Fix Fic: The original purpose of Truth and Ideals, before it ended up just becoming yet another story in Citadel Of The Heart. Over time, Digimon Re: Adventure eventually turned out to exist for pretty much almost the exact same reasons as Truth and Ideals, but at the time the story was first posted, Digimon Adventure tri., which ultimately leads to certain writing choices that ended up becoming finalized before key reveals were made about the canon tri. series.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite the overly unrealistic art style which MF217 uses, he actually can draw things realistically, he just prefers not to since he has difficulty imagining his own designs in a realistic style. He has voiced his thoughts many, many times in the past that he's not exactly a big fan of looking too much like everyone else in terms of general style.
  • Insistent Terminology: He always has a tendency of referring to Rexie as "The Queen" instead of the former name, considering the author considers the Queen to be a Memetic Badass due to her young lived age and the fact she has survived so many things that would've flat out killed her normally.
  • Kaiju
  • Lemony Narrator: Via Grandis' internal monologuing.
  • Massively Multiplayer Crossover
  • The Multiverse
  • Official Couple: Every fic he works on has at least one that doesn't wait until the very end to get together.
  • Outside Context Hero/Outside-Context Problem: He takes advantage of the concept of The Multiverse a little too much at times.
  • Physical God: His original works having a tendency to crossover into whatever fic he's writing ultimately lead way for the Ultimorian Deities to get involved somehow.
  • Recursive Fanfiction: DinoSquad RX is planned to get a Fix Fic based off of itself as to get the story back on track with some of the original plans, as well as generally improve the story for the better due to MF217 being dissatisfied with the current product.
  • Rouge Angles of Satin: Something that MF217 can be a big victim of; thankfully most people who review his works (so far) are not exactly huge in the Grammar Nazi department... but some of them still tend to point out the author's troubled work with using the correct tense, something the author has admitted "being correct at these things is easier on paper than in practice, regardless of prior experience".
  • Rule of Cool
  • Rule of Symbolism: Chronicle-King, MF217's former namesake, is one of the opening of Pandora's Box if he actually appears in a given story. Minerva's Non-Mammalian Mammaries are to represent her gaining humanity in every way in which she tries so hard to deny.
  • Self-Deprecation: Something he himself admits he may have gone overboard with in his own works.
  • Serial Escalation: Seems to be something this guy has an unhealthy addiction for at times, especially when added into Fight Scenes.
  • Series Mascot: The Big Three of the Ultimorian Deities; Ultima, Dragora Galaxia, and Grandis.
    • In the older days, it was a dopelganger of Bowser turned Imp named "Chronicle-King", which is where MF217 gets his previous username from (his original was "Bowser-The-King", sometimes as "Bowser Da King"). Upon being turned into his original works self as his Imp design which removed the Bowser elements altogether, Chronicle-King barely gets used anymore if merely because if he does appear, it's a Wham Episode because he's an immediate red flag that shit is about to hit the fan because his arrival is Invoked Faux Symbolism of the opening of Pandora's Box.
  • Shout-Out
  • Shown Their Work
  • Sophisticated as Hell: Grandis and the MF217 both have a tendency to be oddly poetic for some of their dialogue despite the fact both switch back so very frequently between Sir Swears-a-Lot or simply not swearing at all.
  • Take That, Us: Despite the fact Grandis is described as an "ideal version of the author", he's also designed as to be an exaggerated take on the author's negative traits and flaws as a whole, as to make Grandis into a form of pseudo-Hate Sink at certain times.
  • Weird Crossover: You could say that.
  • What If?: His absolutely biggest defining trait with his fics are the various twists and turns he makes with characterization, plots, and anything from the source material and seeing what could happen if he can alter them as much as he wants and yet stay somewhat true to the original media's general appeal.

Alternative Title(s): Chronicle King
