''Plankton's Eye View'' is a ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' FanFic by [[Creator/MonicaGilbeyBieber Monica Gilbey-Bieber]], the same {{Troll}} who brought you the TrollFic ''Fanfic/OneLessLonelyGurl''. It is a story that revolves around Plankton and the events that happened in Bikini Bottom ten years after TheMovie. Unlike its predecessor, however, it is actually a serious, [[FanficRecs/SpongeBobSquarePants well-written]] fanfic.

You can read it [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8063013/1/Planktons_Eye_View here]]. It is now complete.

!!''Plankton's Eye View'' contains examples of:

* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: Appears in Chapter 2, where one of the contests held by Neptune is called "Short Story Seasons."
* AlliterativeTitle: Appears in two chapter names: Stanley's Scrap Shop (Chapter 5) and Pesto and Pests (Chapter 11).
* AllJustADream: [[spoiler:C'ren, shown in chapter 1.]]
* AfterlifeExpress: The Flying Dutchman's ship
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Plankton, when he described ''FanFic/OneLessLonelyGurl's'' plot.
%%* CompletedFic
* CostumePorn: Mr. Krabs's opulent new outfit.
* DarkerAndEdgier: This story has a more somber tone in contrast to the usually silly canon. A review even referenced this trope in describing the story.
* {{Determinator}}: Plankton, but no longer in his pursuit of the Krabby Patty Formula but for the [[spoiler: forgiveness of an old friend, who is no other than Mr. Krabs.]] This also marks Plankton's CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* DrivenToSuicide: Plankton, after seeing everyone become a success in the ten years he was imprisoned.
* EpiphanicPrison: This is the 'bigger prison' that Neptune sent Plankton to in Chapter 2.
-->"You are still a prisoner in yourself. You may have been let out of this tiny cubicle you have learned to call home for a decade, but you are still also a prisoner in the world. All the bitterness you have in you right now will continue to confine you. I'm simply moving you to a bigger prison. Freedom is nothing but illusion to you…"
* FateWorseThanDeath: Plankton being set free from his prison but is made to see everyone become a success and him remain a failure.
* FictionalDocument: Plankton is shown reading ''Fanfic/OneLessLonelyGurl'' in the second chapter, and the last chapter reveals that the in-universe writer of the story is [[spoiler: Fred Rechid. There is also a fictional explanation in the chapter about how the pseudonym Monica Gilbey-Bieber came to be.]] Also, the newspapers that Plankton read in the fanfic, making him learn of [[spoiler:Mr. Krabs getting a heart attack. This twists the whole plot of the story, making Plankton want to go back to Bikini Bottom and apologize to Mr. Krabs for one last time before he dies.]]
* GloriousMotherRussia: C'ren's 'reality sequence' (Chapter 1 of this fanfic) takes place in Russia. In the fanfic, Russia wasn't accurately portrayed, possibly because of {{Satire}} purposes.
* GoshDarnItToHeck: There are no swear words in this story, except probably for Neptune-damned, which is an alternate form of "goddamned." Also, there is just one instance of an actual swear appearing, where C'ren says the word goddamned.
* TheGrimReaper: The Flying Dutchman
* [[ItWasWithYouAllAlong He Was With You All Along]]: Guess.
* HeelFaceTurn: Plankton. This is basically what the plot is about.
* HeelRealization: Plankton realizes that conquering the world is not as appealing as it used to be and turns over a new leaf for real.
* {{Hell}}: Davy Jones's Locker
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Plankton and Howard, the OriginalCharacter. Howard is the guy who will help Plankton on his mission to redeem himself.
* LastEpisodeThemeReprise: The song 'The Best Day Ever' is performed in the last chapter.
* NearDeathExperience: Plankton was given a second chance by the Flying Dutchman after his suicide attempt.
* TheNothingAfterDeath: Plankton floats around in an endless expanse of black space after he commits suicide in the incinerator. This trope gets subverted though when a green, floating cube suddenly appears.
* OhCrapThereAreFanficsOfUs: Plankton reading ''FanFic/OneLessLonelyGurl'' and remarking on how disturbing it was.
* OutOfCharacter: Plankton, but this is justified because of the plot. Ten years can change anyone.
* PerspectiveFlip: Even the title states that this is a story told from the main villain of WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants. The story is founded on this very trope, along with HeelFaceTurn.
* {{Psychopomp}}: The Flying Dutchman.
* {{Pun}}: Plankton refers to his meals in jail as breakfast, lunch, and suffer.
* PurpleProse: Most of the story is written like this, but it is well-done and enhances the descriptions of the sceneries. Despite the poetic way it was written and its use of sophisticated wording, it is still quite understandable.
* ReformedButRejected: Plankton when he apologizes to Mr. Krabs for the first time. This prompts him to leave Bikini Bottom in order to escape the past and start anew.
* SceneryPorn: Unlike the usual costume porn found in most fanfics, this fanfic has mostly this. The author describes the settings of the story in vivid detail.
* ShoutOut: The fanfic has shoutouts to {{Literature/Twilight}} and FanFic/MyImmortal in Chapter 2 in reference to the yearly Worst Writing Contest Neptune hosted since he read what seemed to be a Twilight book, which Plankton describes as 'the blasted love story about a human and a vampire.' This can also be considered a TakeThat, as the author himself has admitted to hating Twilight. My Immortal here was described as 'that 'story' of a 'beautiful' girl with black, red, and purple hair who cursed the world for making her too beautiful, described what she wore in vivid detail in every chapter, and despised anyone who isn't like her.' This was most likely done to balance out the otherwise overly serious tone of the story. There is also a {{Music/Blink182}} shoutout at the end of Chapter 1. There are a couple of references to WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutron; one of them is a reference to roadkill ripple, a dessert found in the evil cloned earth, and another is Spongebob and Sandy's son being named "[=JimJam=]", one of Hugh's nicknames for Jimmy.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler: Howard isn't really an OriginalCharacter, but a rudimentary body for Mr. Krabs's soul.]]
* TriumphantReprise: The song 'The Best Day Ever' is performed in the final chapter of the story. In the movie, which was supposed to be the series finale, the same song is also played in the credits. In this fanfic, Plankton then muses about his success and the lessons he has learned from his life. The performance was also described as bombastic, and includes a clarinet solo from Squidward.
* VillainProtagonist: Plankton. He is a villain in the canon, but here, he is presented in a whole new manner.
* WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue: An interesting variation here; in this fanfic, this trope is applied to the first chapter, which details what happened to [[Fanfic/OneLessLonelyGurl C'ren]]. Another one is seen in the third chapter, where Plankton sees the success of everyone. Basically, all the characters of the canon except for Plankton finally achieved their goals. This can be considered, in a way, an epilogue of the canon.
* YouAreNotAlone: Plankton and Howard both reference this trope when talking to each other about life.
