23rd Oct: It's time for the second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest, theme: cute monsters! Details and voting here.
A Rag Tag Bunch Of Misfits saves humanity from aliens. And itself.Everyone Went to School Together. The Hero answers The Call. Believing he is The Chosen One, he sets off to save the world. Our hero is an Informed Loner. Not even his True Companions believe his I Work Alone speech, and everyone just ignores his irate protests as they set up a team (a Five-Man Band) and support his mission with their specialized skills.The first draft drew a lukewarm response, prompting lots of confusion from the author at the response. Also, this damn Mary Sue keeps sneaking into the narrative. I can't keep her out; she just shows up with a different face. so I think I'll just have to Kill Her.
