Fanfic Recs: Beavis and Butt-Head
Coming of Age, by Deep Metal
- Recommended by Gordon Schumway
- Synopsis: Beavis and Butt-Head are about to graduate from high school, still on their epic quest to "score" with some hot chicks, are invited to join their hippie teacher, David Van Driessen, and some of their classmates on a post-graduation vacation trip. In the hopes of scoring, our heroes reluctantly agree to go, and soon find themselves at the center of a horrifying plot aimed at destroying them for good...
- Comments: The author could have been an excellent writer for the show, given how well he knows its continuity. Many characters from the show, even ones that only appeared once or twice, appear and are given impressive development. The conspiracy surrounding Beavis and Butt-Head is nothing short of brilliant, especially as it involves many of the duo's old enemies seeking revenge on them. What's most surprising and gratifying is how the story blends both Beavis and Butt-Head and Daria together and gives Daria a new perspective on life without making it seem forced or cheap. We even get to see what happens to Beavis and Butt-Head after they graduate from high school, in a career that suits their "unique" talents. This troper's favorite part, though, has to be the Prison Rape scenes involving a certain character that he couldn't stand during the original show's run.
