The Emo Game is a three part story under some sort of progress by Padur Karil and his best friend. It is a total self insert on both parts, but great efforts have been made to keep all characters non-Mary Sue The plot revolves around a group of twelve Emo Teens who get murdered by a group of punkish kids. The Emo Kids are rescued by a "Goddess" who goes by the name The Empress. The Empress recruits the kids to participate in an interstellar quest to rid the galaxy of the evil "Shifters". She bestowes upon this group elemental powers, and gives them missions.
Heel-Face Turn: Billy slowly evolves from a sociopathic murderer to a competent, tough love style leader, partly due to influence from Matthew and Big Ben
Heroic Self-Deprecation: Pierce is by far the strongest of the team, but constantly underestimates himself, shrinks back from glory, and often lets it get in the way of acting decisively resulting in his own death
I Am A Humanitarian: The owner of The In, whose closets are freezers with former In patrons in them.
I Let Gwen Stacy Die: Pierce gets killed after deciding against his better judgement to take an escape route Ben insisted was the right one.
Little Miss Badass Natalie is the smallest character, but is by far the most competent fighter of the group.
Mood Whiplash: The whole thing, but especially the In / Empress Domain Arc which quickly went from cannibalistic horror, to jokes about driving a Jupiter and Purple Squid to heartbreak to Heroic BSOD and Freak Out! on the part of Devon
