A trilogy of Total Drama Island fanfics by cragmiteblaster that is obviously inspired by Frank15'sTotal Drama Alphabet.The first story, Total Drama Letterz, takes place roughly a year after the Total Drama Island and subsequent seasons never happened. Twenty six new characters are introduced, each with a different letter name, such as creepy Uzuri, sweet innocent Jimmy, bad guy Wallace and multi talented chef Gary among others. In the end one of them will win one million dollars.Unlike the real show all of the characters get roughly equal screen time so predicting a winner is harder. While the main plot is fairly common there are a number of subplots such as Lavender trying to prove cheerleaders are not dumb, Xaria's troubled past and couples forming.The second story, Total Drama Letterama, is hosted by Spider and Quana and features ANOTHER twenty six characters. The sequel is where the story 'really gets serious. Several characters from the first story are revealed to have sad backstories (such as Tabitha) and the story has an overall darker tone. Every character from the first story reappears and each of the new twenty six has something new to offer. The story is currently in progress.A third story has been confirmed; it will be titled Total Drama Letterific. It is said to be by far the darkest in the trilogy; it will feature 26 returning contestants (13 from each story) and 9 new ones. What is known is that the main villain will be a puppet inhabited by the soul of a pure evil demon.This page has a character sheet.
Aristocrats Are Evil: Tabitha and Nakia are from very rich backgrounds and are both antagonists and pretty nasty.
Attention Whore: Nakia; she loves her hair and having people doing things for her. She also uses the confessional a fair amount, mostly just showing off her hair to the audience.
Author Tract: The author dislikes Total Drama World Tour and refers to it as 'The Season That Must Never Be Named'. In fact, you could replace half of the character dialog with a list of what the author likes or dislikes and you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.
Backstory: Xaria's negative attitude comes from a highly abusive family relationship with her older sister.
Fifi become a feminist and man hater because many boys and even a teacher looked down upon her and mistreated her because she's a girl.
the reason Tabitha is the reason she is is because of her Abusive Parents forcing her to act like that.
Butt Monkey: Kasimar. He gets punched, kicked in the balls, knocked out by an oar, electrocuted, burnt, made sick, hit with a baseball bat and knocked unconscious. Subverted as he very much deserves it.
The Cheerleader: Completely Averted with Lavender. She's a cheerleader but not only is she really intelligent but she is nice too. Her reason for auditioning was to prove the 'cheerleaders are dumb' stereotype wrong.
Chef of Iron: Gary; do not insult his cooking or call him small.
Clear My Name: Vinnie when he is blamed for digging the hole Fifi fell into. Hector and Gary were on his side but he nearly got voted off. His name is later cleared and Wallace is found out as the culprit.
Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Barney; he dresses as a pirate, speaks like one too, is hyperactive and genki, considers himself a love expert despite never having a girlfriend and sings a sea shanty. But he is quite funny.
Irene as well, who often drifts into her own little world.
Uzuri too; but when you're on a strict diet of horror movies and ant burning it comes natural.
Even Evil Has Standards: Starting in the 'say uncle' challenge, Chef sternly tells Chris he's going too far. Chris just brushes him off.
Also in the 'say uncle' challenge, Wallace alters his cheating strategy for Spider. He simply ejects him from the torture chair rather than increasing the Pain. This is because he finds it unsporting to hurt a sick person to a specific degree.
Evil Genius: Say what you will about Wallace; there is no denying his intelligence. He even invented a special gun that can hack into things from a distance so he can remotely control them. And then there is all the bombs he uses that he made himself.
Five-Token Band: Though there is a lot more than five characters the author seems to have given the cast a lot of culteral diversity. Mable, Raven and Ireen are black, Quana is Hispanic, Vinnie is Russian, Andy is Japenese and a recent Word of God confirms that Wallace is Italian.
Heroic Sacrifice: In episode thirteen the Bonfire Ceremony for Team Jungle ends in a three way tie, one vote for everyone left on the team. Chris tries to eliminate Uzuri because he doesn't like her but Vinnie steps in and quits so Uzuri could stay. Chris allowed this but didn't understand why Vinnie did it.
Hired Guns: Kasimar will do any deed, no matter how hienous, for monetary gain.
Humiliation Conga: Wallace gets this in episode ten. After his team loses he is held down and force fed his own tainted star fruit; then at the Bonfire Ceremony he is betrayed by his henchman and voted off ... which nobody cares about. And as an extra insult to injury he falls flat on his face while walking the dock due to a missing plank taken earlier in the episode.
Justice Will Prevail: Good has beaten Evil most of the time so far, and like Gary says It's karma, no two ways about it. What goes around comes around.
Kick the Dog: When Uzuri doesn't get a present from home in the first part of episode twelve Chris jeers and insults her to the point she ran off in tears. Shockingly he basically told Uzuri her own parents don't love her.
Kid Hero: Jimmy is only ten years old; he is obviously a protagonist. Likewise Eleanor is twelve and also one of the good guys.
Let Me at Him!: Lavender tries to seriously hurt Kasimar after he insults her one too many times. It takes Xaria and Mable's combined strength to hold her back. and they only did so not because they like Kasimar but because they didn't want Lavender to overturn the boat and make them lose the challenge.
Level Grinding: Chris is far more sadistic and nasty than in the first season. The torture challenge was designed just so he could watch the campers suffer.
Pirate: This is Barney's stereotype; he not only dresses like a pirate but he talks like one too. And he's quite hyper.
Please Get Off Me: In episode 4 Yessica and Irene fall down the hole trap. Gary and Raven had already fallen in and Irene landed on Gary (more accurately his spine) and Gary asks Irene to please get off him.
Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Tabitha is rich to the point of carrying at least $200 dollars around and giving it away as though it were nothing. Of course; it was given away as a bribe to get Kasimar to hurt someone she didn't like.
Vayvay: Adding "And all that doo dah" to the end of her sentences.
Chekhov's Gun: Midway through the previous story Tabitha said that she stands to lose a lot more if she doesn't win but it isn't explained. In this story though ... it is. See Freudian Excuse below for details.
Darker and Edgier: Letterama, while still rated T, is a lot more serious than the mostly light hearted Letterz.
Deadpan Snarker: A lot of the characters are this at some point but the biggest examples are Jill (labeled the Sarcastic Chick), Donny, Rheneas and Helen.
Freudian Excuse: read Total Drama Letterz and you will see Tabitha as a Manipulative Bitch who only cares about money and winning ... this is far from the truth. Turns out it was all a Jerkass Façade. This was because her Abusive Parents were forcing her to be like that and everytime she failed at ANYTHING they would beat her and usually hospitalize her. All this made her become very insecure about herself and up until episode fourteen she is an emotional wreck who just wants to make things right. Tabitha even admits she was jealous of Uzuri, her former pawn.
It is later revealed that Lankston has a similar excuse, as his parents were highly neglective and he nearly died on one occasion because of it.
Hide Your Lesbians: While played straight for the vast majority fo Total Drama Letters, this time it is averted as Irene's sexuality is much more important to the plot than in the first story.
Hooker with a Heart of Gold: Averted with Kim; she admits she has slept with fifty guys in the past and is willing to sell away her body to Kasimar in return for him finding her the immunity Idol.
Human Shield: Tabitha's father uses his own wife as a shield against Rheneas.
