Fanfic / A Angle Is With Us
A Angle Is With Us
is a Final Fantasy VII
Fanfic that exemplifies MarySueness
at its zenith, with a half-hearted plot and frail-yet-lovely protagonist that reads like a checklist of quintessential Suefic traits.
The plucky 16-year-old elite military operative
, with the angelic beauty and singing voice, is assigned to help the main characters from Crisis Core
attack a site of Dark Soldiers
outside of town, but once there, she is confronted by a Dark Soldier who seems to know more about her backstory than we, the audience, ever will. As they begin to fight, she casts a spell and another
beautifully-dressed angelic form appears to help her
, but the original teenage girl collapses and the entire mission stops as the Crisis Core cast tenderly bears her back to their Headquarters. Once there, the resident mad scientist
Professor Hojo takes an interest in her supernatural abilities, and the whole cast of the game rallies to defend her from his poorly-defined-but-definitely-evil schemes.
Oh, and her name is Anal
. Anal the Angel, in full.
Anal the Angel spends most of her own story unconscious or incapacitated in some way
, and her presence is guaranteed to stop the plot dead in its tracks as the rest of the cast flocks attentively
around her weeping (but still lovely!)
form — even in the middle of a fight scene. The story's main plot is amusingly hard to follow, being fraught with forgotten subplots, character confusion, massive timeskips (hours to weeks) whenever the OC couldn't take the spotlight, and interludes of Anal and her friends going shopping or gossiping about the Bishonen heroes they like. Early allusions to a possible backstory and antagonist gradually peter out, in favour of scene after scene wherein the game's original Badass Crew
cast stands around admiring Anal's wonderfulness, helping her to develop her angelic powers
, and constantly smiling.
The story is most notorious for the moment when, not content with her OC's personal tragedy quotient, the author blatantly plagiarized one of the more famous and tragic scenes from Crisis Core, Zack's Heroic Sacrifice death on the cliffs outside Midgar
, making it about Anal and her brother Anakin
