"Woe was a hegehog like Sonic exept he had emo hair and was blak with dark blu streeks."
— the opening line
Smash School is a Troll Fic set in the Super Smash Brothers universe, written by sonicluvr242 and Diabolical Pie. What makes this Troll Fic different from others is that there are two authors collaborating on it. One author (Diabolical Pie) is respectable and can write quite decently. She claims to not be incredible, when she really shouldn't be, since she isn't half bad. The other author (sonicluvr242) is your basic Troll Fic author. Reading her work has been shown to reduce IQ levels. So read at your own risk.The story follows two points of view. Ana/Anna and Woe's (sonicluvr) and Ryan's (Pie)sonicluvr's story starts with Woe, who is assumed to be an orphaned hedgehog because the story constantly mention his parents dying (or dyeing their hair?) in front of his very eyes. He's basically a Palette Swap of Sonic. Woe catches the bus and meets a girl named Ana (or Anna or Annna), who is a beautiful girl who has been revealed using a couple slips to be sonicluvr's Self Insert. Suddenly, Master Hand attacks the bus (with his hand), but is killed by Woe, who expresses his love for Anna. Then they go through school, learning their attacks. Over time, the two are subject to crossovers, zombies, and secret stones! Needless to say, it gets stupid quickly.Pie's story is a lot less cryptic than sonicluvr's work. It follows a girl named Ryan who is unemployed and has to support her lazy father and the rest of her family. After catching her brother Shirley whacking it to Peach's underwear, Ryan is mysteriously sucked into the game. She tries to escape, but is mistaken for an escaped student. She attends the school, giving a clearer point of view to whatever sonicluvr writes.The difference in writing ability could not last forever, though. By Chapter 12, Diabolical Pie couldn't take the lackluster writing ability of her friend, and the Fan Fic exploded into full Civil War between the writers. Now we'll see whether this Fan Fic can be salvaged into something semi-decent, or be condemned into the pit of terrible writing (though it could be So Bad, It's Goodif you're into that kind of stuff).Read it here.A Dramatic Reading can be found here.
All Just a Dream: sonicluvr retcons Anna's death by saying Ryan dreamed Chapter 12. Apparently, Woe's death was also in Ryan's dream, despite that plot point being written by sonicluvr. Still, it's still some type of genius to hijack someone else's writing to Hand Wave your Plot Hole.
Chapter 15 throws in some guy named Hunter, a character written by sonicluvr's boyfriend, apparently due to Pie leaving after a major fight with sonicluvr. However, it is revealed at the end that Pie is still on board, allowing this Fan Fic to not degenerate into complete insanity.
Asshole Victim: After several chapters of putting up with the annoying Jerk Sue Anna, it seems oddly satisfying when Ryan beats Anna to death.
Back from the Dead: Woe is apparently still alive, according to the author annoncement after Chapter 11.
It was revealed in Chapter 14 that Woe's death was also part of Ryan's dream. There's no foreshadowing whatsoever for this point, and it's not even explained in the narrative (only through an author's note).
Beam Me Up, Scotty!: In Chapter 14, sonicluvr claims that Sun Tzu (spelled Sun ZOO) said, "Tha show must go on regadless of war...". Apparently, according to her, Sun Tzu was also Egyptian.
Bond Villain Stupidity: Robot Zombie Colins successfully manages to ambush the heroes. Instead of attempting to, you know, kill them, he says that he will make Woe so angry that Woe will get a Smash Ball attack and then attack him in single combat. Of course, that's what usually happens with this trope in effect, but never with the villain deliberately doing it.
Big Bad: Possibly Robot Zombie Collins, since he claims to return. But since this fic is completely bananas, this could be completely dropped...
Blood Knight: Ryan seems to be becoming this at the end of Chapter 12, meaning she might start getting more and more insane as the story progresses. Of course, it's not like anything else was sane to begin with in this story.
Burger Fool: Ryan used to work for one before getting fired, and then moved onto a local coffee shop, instead.
Butt Monkey: Pit's math equation constantly gets erased.
Canon Discontinuity: Due to the second announcement, Woe's death in Chapter 11 is ignored, as evidenced with Anna saying that Woe will save her.
Captain Obvious: After the skyquake hits, everyone yells "IIIINNNN THA SKYYYYYYTTYY".
Civil War: With Diabolical Pie finally snapping under the sheer stupidity of sonicluvr's writing, war has broken out between the two writers.
Continuity Snarl: Taken Serial Escalation in Chapter 14. Big ROB was apparently killed by Ryan, and then flew off with zombie Colins. What's notable is that this is the same writer making this mistake, and makes it literally in one sentence.
Corporal Punishment: The teachers beat Ryan senselessly when she didn't do a "B Down" move, which she is incapable of doing as she isn't a video game character.
Dark Fic: Assumed. Woe, after all, lost his parents and he's constantly moping about it. Of course, due to the way the Fan Fic has been written, it doesn't read like a Dark Fic. Diabolical Pie does a better job at this.
Decoy Protagonist: Woe is apparently this. Yes, the same Woe that was the main character up until Chapter 11 is now revealed to be this, or at least forced into this due to real life circumstances (Read below).
Subverted Trope: Now that it was revealed that Anna and Mark are back together, Woe is apparently still alive, and will presumably resume as the "protagonist".
Depending on the Writer: Now that full civil war has broken out between the writers, the direction of the story could drastically change between the two authors.
Case in point: Anna is killed in Diabolical Pie's Chapter 12, and then in Chapter 14, sonicluvr reveals that it was All Just a Dream and then kills of Ryan.
Deus ex Machina: "Dashin Rainbow" comes out of nowhere to assist the "heroes" in finding Big ROB.
Woe pulls out a random Smash Ball from his backpack to use against Robot Zombie Colins. After that doesn't work, he pulls another one and gives it to Rainbow Dash.
Disproportionate Retribution: Even though beating the resident Jerk Sue to death is oddly satisfying, this trope is still in effect considering that Anna hasn't really done much to Ryan herself. Not that we're complaining...
One-Paragraph Chapter: Chapter 14 is a very painful example of this trope, and it was almost unreadable (or, more unreadable than normal). sonicluvr claims that it's due to using an iPod Touch for typing (despite claiming to be using the iPod for other chapters, all with paragraphs).
Only Sane Girl: Ryan within the story, pointing out all of the continuity errors, broken laws of physics, lack of research, and various other problems with the story. Outside, Diabolical Pie is definitely this compared to sonicluvr.
Rant Inducing Slight: Diabolical Pie has exploded into a rage in Chapter 12, with her character, Ryan, beating Anna to death. It seems like all those months of putting up with sonicluvr's bad writing has finally caught up with her.
Real Life Writes the Plot: Apparently, the motivation for the death of Woe in Chapter 11 was due to Anna breaking up with her boyfriend Mark.
Revenge Fic: Now has shades of this, although this is directed at a real life person.
And furthering this trope, according to the author's annoncement, Mark and Anna are back together again, and apparently Woe either was revived or was never dead.
Now that Chapter 12 was released, it's apparent that there was some sort of falling out between Diabolical Pie and sonicluvr, as apparent in the author's note. As such, Ryan beats Anna to death. No telling how sonicluvr is going to respond.
Sadist Teacher: The "disgusting lady" that mistakes Ryan for a student and forces her to attend class.
Schedule Slip: Mainly in Pie's updates since hers probably takes more effort. But justified in an announcement from sonicluvr stating that it was broken.
Straight Girl: Ryan in the story compared to everyone else. Meta example, Diabolical Pie compared to sonicluvr.
Switching P.O.V.: The Point of View has shifted before, but Chapter 11 is when this finally becomes blatant, as the whole story is now written in first person through Anna's eyes, instead of the third person that it was written in previously.
Thus ensuring that there is no doubt that Anna is the author's Self Insert.
This Means War!: War has erupted between Diabolical Pie and sonicluvr, Pie in response to sonicluvr's terrible writing, and sonicluvr in response to Pie criticizing the writing.
