23rd Oct: It's time for the second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest, theme: cute monsters! Details and voting here.
nine here: this story is one where I participate, and since there is enough tropes and story, I supposed it would do well with a page here (although the Clans should've had theirs first).This page is to describe the Megatokyo Campfire Story, for lack of a better name, set up in the MT Forums, specifically the SD Fanworks section, known for being? well, out there and quite different from normal people.This story started out innocently enough as a single thread created by xp194, one of the forumgoers, describing it in the first post as "Chinese whispers with a plot" and that it took place in the world of Megatokyo.From then on, all bets were off.The story quickly got large in more ways than one, incorporating stuff from all genres and all tastes, where the forumgoers put themselves in as Author Avatars alongside the original MT characters, and essentially started chaos.After a while, people began to set everything into a plot where the forumgoers were trapped in MT as their forum personas; the story was usually spearheaded by the unofficial GM, Grimblaze, who also set up the wiki for this story, which has reached 140+ pages across four separate threads, not including the Christmas spinoff (only two more pages, but still?). The core of the story is Tom Johnson (aka Grimblaze) working against the Norse gods in some sort of prophecy involving Destruction or something along those lines (Needless to say, it's quite complicated).There is now a 'sequel' of sorts, subtitled "School Days", incorporating some characters/elements from the first, but mostly starting over from scratch, making it easier for new people to drop in; there is also a cap on powers/abilites. The plot is also (mostly) controlled by Grimblaze: the local high school now finds itself under the control of one Grigori Rasputin, who decides to mold the schoolchildren into his personal army as part of his return from power; there are many 'specials' with notable talents attending the school as well, some who will have to fight against "Rasp-sensei's" minions?
If it's a critical plot element, it's in spoilers. Many of the original tropes from Megatokyo still apply, along with these:
