A pair of ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' fanfictions by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1722613/Frank15 Frank15, a.k.a. Mallory16]].

The first story, "[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5288602/1/Total_Drama_Chris Total Drama Chris]]", has the contestants return for a second season of ''Total Drama'' where one of them wins $1,000,000. There are new teams such as The Screaming Pansies and The Killer Chrises and certain friendships, conflicts, and relationships are given some development. There's even a ''Total Drama Aftermath''-like show called ''Total Drama Izzy''. Many contestants have time in the limelight, but the story focuses especially on Lindsay, Katie, and Heather. Lindsay and Katie are intent on showing that there is more to them than meets the eye, and Heather seeks redemption.

The sequel, "[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6114419/1/Total_Drama_Alphabet Total Drama Alphabet]], is hosted by Izzy and Bridgette and features twenty-six new contestants (one for each letter of the alphabet), that can be found on the author's Website/{{Deviantart}} account [[http://frank35.deviantart.com/gallery/# Total-Drama-Alphabet here]]. The story is ongoing.
!! This story shows examples of:

%%* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Hank from Alphabet (much to his chagrin) believes this.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: In-universe, several. Lindsay, Katie and Heather's changes are noted above; Ezekiel is a well-meaning but easily confused FishOutOfWater; Justin is a ManipulativeBastard and utterly self-absorbed {{Jerkass}}; Leshawna benefited from ManipulativeEditing hiding that her grudge against Heather wasn't just sparked by Heather's own actions...
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Alistair boasts that he has one yacht; Katrina has 15.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: {{Lampshaded}} when Leshawna asks whether Courtney counts as a 'sister' or not.
* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: In several episodes of Alphabet, Izzy speaks Spanish. Or what passes for it, at least...
%%* TheAtoner: Heather, and also [[spoiler: Leshawna later on]].
* BaitAndSwitch: The contestants on ''Total Drama Alphabet'' are clearly being set up for a ''Phobia Factor''-like challenge, where the interns are forcing them to reveal their fears, mostly by using drinks laced with truth serum. However, as it turns out, the contestants are really going to be scaring the interns.
* BerserkButton: Don't mess with Lindsay in front of Tyler.
%%* BreakTheHaughty: Heather.
* [[BluffingTheMurderer Bluffing The]] SmugSnake: This is how [[spoiler: Justin]] gets eliminated in ''TD Chris'': [[spoiler: Cody]] accuses them of what they actually did, then pulls out a tape. They immediately go after them, after which [[spoiler: Cody]] mocks them for going through all that effort just to snag a blank tape -- and why would they do that, unless they were afraid that it ''proved'' what they'd just been accused of?
%%* BluntMetaphorsTrauma: Ezekiel suffers from this.
%%* ButtMonkey: Chris in the first story, Leanne in the second.
%%* CardCarryingVillain: Todd from Alphabet
* CarriedByTheHost: Chris ''thinks'' this of the ''Total Drama'' series, and does not appreciate being told otherwise.
* CharacterDevelopment: Chris' bane. He views the entire cast as {{Flat Character}}s, and actively tries to cram them back into their respective stereotypes.
* CharacterExaggeration: Chris was always a {{Jerkass}}, but here he's apparently [[LevelGrinding Level Grinded]] [[TookALevelInJerkass to evil levels]], to the point where he makes [[JustJokingJustification jokes]] about hoping to see campers ''[[DrivenToSuicide kill themselves]]'' after friendships break up.
%%* ChekhovsGun: Noah's book.
* CycleOfRevenge: A major theme in ''TD Chris'' is the contestants trying to ''stop'' this cycle.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Chris has a personal vendetta against several campers. People are hurt, sometimes very seriously, in the name of getting 'revenge' -- and this is carried at times to the point where some are even willing to attempt ''murder''. Racism is directly addressed, along with other unfortunate stereotypes.
%%* DesignatedVillain: Frederique InUniverse at least to Rachel, Xuxa and Katrina.
%%* TheDeterminator: Danielle, due to her supermassive ego.
* DivergentCharacterEvolution: Katie and Sadie. Katie is established as smarter and a fiercely temperamental {{Tsundere}} {{Tomboy}}, while Sadie is the "nice one" to the point that she's practically a DistaffCounterpart to {{Canon}}!DJ. The fact that this reverses their designations as "the nice one" and "the smart one" in their canon profiles is {{Lampshaded}}.
* DisproportionateRetribution: [=LeShawna=] spilled Gwen's secret to the world. Her reply: [[spoiler: letting her almost die in the hot box]].
%%* TheDitz: Bob from Alphabet
%%* DracoInLeatherPants: In-universe, Danielle calls Duncan this.
* DramaBomb: The fourth episode of Total Drama Izzy, where Izzy brings on Leshawna's abusive former friend Madison, forcing a confrontation.
* DumbBlonde: Harold's ex girlfriend Autumn; she actually makes Lindsay look like Albert Einstein by comparison.
%%* EliminationHoudini: two InUniverse examples:
%%** [[invoked]]Chris views Katie and Bridgette as this. [[JerkassHasAPoint He's not entirely wrong]].
%%** [[invoked]]Danielle. It's [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by everyone, [[UpToEleven even herself]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Even Chef, Chris' normally loyal henchman, starts protesting that Chris is going too far.
* ExactWords: Goes hand in glove with the rampant LoopholeAbuse. After all, a provision that enables using the letter of the law to defeat the purpose is the very definition of a loophole.
* ExecutiveMeddling: Both negative and positive examples in-universe:
** Negative (1): Chris ramps his abuse of his position as show host UpToEleven and flagrantly tries to bend the rules in his own contract to give himself even more control.
** Negative (2): It comes to light that, in the first season, {{manipulative editing}} was used to further push Heather as a villain and make Leshawna more of a hero to avoid racial UnfortunateImplications.
** Positive: Chris' superiors at the network override several of his demands and abuses, resulting in the Aftermath-like ''Total Drama Izzy'' and aiding Izzy as a SpannerInTheWorks of Chris' scheming. By the end of ''Total Drama Chris'', they're so sick of Chris' drama that [[spoiler: they drop him like a bad habit]].
%%* FallenPrincess: Heather.
* FanDumb: In-universe, PlayedForLaughs and seriously during the ''Total Drama Izzy'' segments. Izzy is not happy with all the bashing that goes on in the fandom, nope nope!
%%* FreakyFridayFlip: [[spoiler:Danielle]] and [[spoiler:Ophelia]] experience one in Episode 11 of ''Alphabet''.
* FreudianExcuse:
** Harold ostensibly despises Lindsay because he once had a date with another DumbBlonde who humiliated him after their date went badly.
** Leshawna's real reason for despising people like Heather is because of their similarity to a former friend turned enemy in Leshawna's home town.
* GroinAttack: Several. Part of the reason Chris develops such a hate-on for Katie is because she kicks him in the crotch while humiliating him in an early episode.
* HeroicSacrifice: Rachel accepts elimination to keep Katrina in the game.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Katie and Sadie. Questioning the "heterosexual" part is a big BerserkButton for Katie.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Chris; just as he tries to find loopholes to inflict more pain on the contestants and [[ExecutiveMeddling eliminate who ''he'' wants to see gone]], so too do the contestants find and exploit loopholes in his poorly thought-out challenges. And it's a loophole in his contract that allows his producers to [[spoiler: fire him at the end of ''TD Chris''.]]
* HumiliationConga: Day 5 describes one from Heather's past: She was invited to the prom, only to be stood up by her date, who was ''actually'' dating her former best friend. Another former friend of hers whom she'd tormented for being a lesbian invites her to dance, only for both of them to draw further mocking.
* {{Irony}}: {{Lampshaded}} throughout Day 8 of ''TD Chris''; particularly ironic comments are followed by an innocently oblivious Lindsay rambling on to the ConfessionCam about how her maid is good at making everything "[[{{Malaproper}} nice and irony]]".
* IsThisThingStillOn: Chris [[RunningGag frequently]] insists that anything that incriminates him should be edited out of that episode.
%%* LargeHam: Harold as Air Man definitely counts.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: In the first episode of ''Total Drama Alphabet'', new hostess Izzy mentions the first story's winner.
--> '''Izzy:''' ...and you've just been spoiled, so ha!
* LiteraryAgentHypothesis: A later, unrelated story by the same author implies that Katie wrote ''Total Drama Chris'' as a fanfiction. This would certainly explain Katie's [[MarySue Sue-ish]] portrayal.
* LoopholeAbuse:
** Used as a RunningGag during the Anime/SailorMoon challenge, and as a lesser RunningGag with later challenges. Chris doesn't plan things out too well, and ''[[BerserkButton hates]]'' getting called on it. Of course, that's all the more reason for the players to do so.
*** To elaborate, the challenge has the teams split into boys and girls, with the boys dressed as monsters, and the girls dressed as [[MagicalGirl Sailor Scouts]]. Both sides are armed with squirt guns filled with [[{{Squick}} Vomit]]. First team to eliminate the other team's monsters/scouts wins. Ain't no rule that says scouts that have been hit can't help. Or that getting hit by your own teammates (like, say, Owen, after he's been bribed with jelly beans) doesn't count. Or that you can't hide in the cabins until the challenge is over.
** Chris abuses loopholes himself, as per canon. While his contract keeps him from rigging the vote to eliminate any competitors he dislikes or directly interfering with challenges, he eggs on other contestants to do his dirty work.
** The network uses a loophole in Chris' contract to [[spoiler: fire him at the end of ''Total Drama Chris''.]]
%%* MalcolmXerox: Isis from Alphabet is a rare female example.
* ManipulativeEditing:
** Used to explain Leshawna's AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: according to Heather, they were ''both'' in the wrong during ''Island'', but Leshawna's nastier behavior was edited out to avoid accusations of UnfortunateImplications and to cast Heather as the BigBad.
** Chris and [[spoiler: Justin]] both expect to benefit from this. Chris constantly orders the film crew to "edit out" any unflattering moments, while the latter gives a HannibalLecture about how they'll be edited to look like the victim while their victims are made into the bad guys, thanks to their 'connections'.
* MeaningfulName: According to Chris, the team names were meant to be meaningful: he deliberately filled the Killer Chrises with who he saw as the strongest players, expecting the Screaming Pansies to get the tar whupped out of them. Towards the ending, this takes on a different meaning: [[spoiler: the fact that the Killer Chrises only start surviving after they've been reduced to the two members he outright ''hates'' completely kills what's left of Chris' cool]].
* MortonsFork: In the Final Three challenge, Katie is dared to eliminate herself from the game. The penalty for refusing the dare is to get eliminated. [[spoiler:Katie survives because Lindsay [[TakeAThirdOption used the two free passes she received during the challenge to save Katie and eliminate herself.]]]]
%%* MustMakeAmends: [[spoiler: Leshawna]] tries to do this after their MoralEventHorizon moment.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: Katie]] accidentally causes [[spoiler: Sadie]]'s elimination by pressuring [[spoiler: Noah]] to vote for them after a fight... and forgetting to tell him to change his vote to someone else after they make up.
* NotSoDifferent: Leshawna and Heather. [[spoiler: Which foreshadows Leshawna's attempts to become TheAtoner after she goes too far in ''TD Chris''.]]
* NowOrNeverKiss: [[spoiler: Eva and Cody]] kiss during the 'Fear Multiple' challenge because they think they won't get another chance.
--> '''Katie:''' "Aww. That would be so sweet if we weren't about to all die."
* OddFriendship: Lindsay became best friends with Courtney and Heather, of all people.
* OneSteveLimit: {{Averted}} and commented on; while comparing notes about their backstories, the campers are surprised at how many [[spoiler: evil Jewels]] there apparently are.
%%* TheOphelia: Take a wild guess.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: DJ [[BewareTheNiceOnes snaps and gives his teammates a tongue-lashing]] [[spoiler: just before his elimination]]. He stays in a bad mood for several episodes, only snapping out of it after the first installment of ''Total Drama Izzy''. [[AllThereInTheManual A later author's note mentions]] that the writer struggled with his character and even eliminated him earlier than originally planned because of this.
* OutOfFocus: There's a contestant named [[spoiler: Zack]] on Total Drama Alphabet? Really? His type label is "The Cannon Fodder"
%%* ParodySue: Danielle from Alphabet
* PoorCommunicationKills: Played with in Total Drama Chris. While a lot of Chris and Justin's more forced schemes for more drama fall apart because the contestants talk things out and figure out what's going on and therefore don't blame each other as much, other times the contestants simply don't listen to each other because of old or new grudges.
* ProductPlacement: One episode revolves entirely around [=McDonalds=], with Chris shilling the restaurant every chance he gets.
* PurpleProse: The story Trent writes for the fanfiction challenge is so deeply purple that it reads like a {{troll fic}}.
* ReformedButRejected: Heather struggles with this; the problem is only amplified by Chris doing his damnest to shove her back into the role of villain.
* RelativeError: When Heather sees Geoff and [[FanFic/TotalSiblingRivalry Marilee]] together, she assumes they are on a date, not realizing that they are siblings.
* RetCon: A later, unrelated story by the same author implies that [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis Katie wrote]] ''[[LiteraryAgentHypothesis Total Drama Chris]]'' as a fanfiction. This would certainly explain Katie's [[MarySue Sue-ish]] portrayal.
* RuleOfThree: During Day 4's 'secret challenge', Chris is punched out three times in a row, by Trent, Tyler and [[strike:Cody]] Chef.
* RunningGag: Throughout the series, the cast frequently performs a LastSecondWordSwap on the title, replacing Chris's name with somebody else's, much to the host's frustration.
* SerialEscalation: As you read, some questions arise, like how much of a JerkAss can Chris get? How worse the next MoralEventHorizon can be? [[EvilPlan How "evil" can Todd's plans be?]]
* ShoutOut:
** The series takes several cues from ''[[Fanfic/TotalDramaComebackSeries Total Drama Comeback]]'', including a few of its {{Crack Pairing}}s.
** One challenge is based off of ''Anime/SailorMoon''. References are made to both the original series and TheNineties English dub, with Noah expressing shock that Lindsay is only familiar with the subbed version.
%%** Another is based on PacMan. %% DESCRIBE
** And yet another is based on Series/SesameStreet. %% DESCRIBE
%%* SpannerInTheWorks: Izzy.
%%* SpoiledSweet: Lindsay and Katrina.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: The girls in general get far more focus and development than the boys.
* StrawMisogynist: Invoked when the campers have to {{Cosplay}} as each other: [[spoiler: Justin]] is assigned Ezekiel, and takes advantage of this to gleefully spout the most sexist rhetoric he can come up with. Chris also gleefully encourages sexist comments, though it's unclear whether he actually believes this or is just trying to stir up yet more trouble; either way, it fits with his higher level of Jerkass.
%%* {{Squee}}: A trademark of Katie and Sadie.
%%* TakeThat: Against Literature/{{Twilight}}, [=McDonalds=], Total Drama Action... %% DESCRIBE
** In the third challenge (the Sailor Moon one), Noah asks how changing Sailors Uranus and Neptune from Outright lesbians into [[HideYourGays strongly implied to be lesbian cousins]] was supposed to put [[MoralGuardians Soccer Moms]] at ease.
%%* TemptingFate: Izzy letting Sierra in the island during the second season reminds the readers of this.
* TokenMinorityCouple: Isis from Alphabet ships Stephanie/Quincy (despite herself having feelings for Quincy)
* TooDumbToLive: Owen votes himself out for cake.
%%* TookALevelInJerkass: Chris most notably, but also Justin and Leshawna.
* TrialBalloonQuestion: ''TD Chris'', Day 7: After being threatened with exposure, [[spoiler: Leshawna]] tries asking Gwen how she'd react if [[IHaveThisFriend someone else]] was responsible for [[spoiler: posting her diary page everywhere]]. Gwen, naturally, doesn't respond well.
* {{Tsundere}}: Katie, who has BelligerentSexualTension in her relationship with [[spoiler: Noah, naturally]].
* UnEvilLaugh: Rachel says she is practicing.
* UnreliableNarrator: A later, unrelated story by the same author implies that [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis Katie wrote]] ''[[LiteraryAgentHypothesis Total Drama Chris]]'' as a fanfiction. Naturally, Katie's the heroine, and a MarySue into the bargain.
%%* TheUnreveal: Katie's fanfic.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: In-universe, some of the contestants seem to think Leanne is a girl. His having a girl's name doesn't help.
* VillainousBreakdown:
** [[spoiler: Justin gets one]] in ''TD Chris'', after their elimination.
** [[spoiler: Gwen also has one]], when she discovers that everyone voted against her, to her own safety.
** Chris goes into an ever-larger, ever more insane one throughout ''TD Chris'', with several meltdowns and tantrums along the way, culminating in [[spoiler: completely losing his job at the end]].
* WhatTheHellHero: Noah badmouthing his love interest Katie in front of her, without feeling remorse. It was a challenge, but still...
* WishFulfillment: A later, unrelated story by the same author implies that [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis Katie wrote]] ''[[LiteraryAgentHypothesis Total Drama Chris]]'' as a fanfiction. Naturally, Katie's the heroine, and a MarySue into the bargain.
* WouldHitAGirl: Leanne (a boy, despite the name) says, just before his boxing match with Ophelia in the first aftermath, that he doesn't have a problem with hitting her.
* WronglyAccused: Heather has to cope with this. Leshawna also got a lot of this in her {{Backstory}}, contributing to her FreudianExcuse.
