Literature: Madgie What Did You Do

It involves the titular Madgie and her older sister, Bunny, and a series of time travelling experiments gone awry. So far the series has about 55 stories, with more to come.

Tropes for the Madgie, what did you do? Series:

  • After the End: When Bunny and Madgie returns to the future
  • Anyone Can Die: Definitely
  • Bad Future: Played with to a certain degree. Usually it is and, sometimes, it kinda is.
  • Blood from the Mouth: Depending on the story and usually the cause is some sort of illness.
  • Break the Cutie: Oh yeah
  • Butterfly of Death and Rebirth: Madgie, what did you do? VI: Butterfly. In general, butterflies do show up up often.
  • Child by Rape: In the 24th Madgie, what did you do? story, we have this happen more or less to Doki as she becomes pregnant but doesn't give birth, making that a "Pregnant by Rape".
  • Children Forced To Kill: The subject matter of Madgie, what did you do? XIX: Mercenary and, as the description put it, no one is exempt from fighting, even the youngest must fight, as in if they can hold a weapon and know what it is, they can fight.
    • One a side note, it's also been pointed out that Bunny was surprised that Doki (the one leading this group) was affectionate and maternal towards them and that they mean a lot to her, thus if she didn't have to, she wouldn't be putting them up to it but she has no choice and they have no choice either, as per the lines:
      In whatever war that is going on, I was surprised that Doki was very affectionate with them and it occurred to me that, due to what was going on, she didn't want to put them up to killing as so to defend their turf or themselves but it was not like she could take them anywhere else or hide them for very long. As it seemed in the case of Violetta, who was minus a leg, they would have to be damaged in sort of way if they were to be out of duty. Doki's affection towards them proved what no one thought, it proved that they were not expendable weapons and, that to her, they were precious and that, if she didn't have to, she wouldn't be making them do what they are doing.
  • Child Prodigy: Madgie, having made it possible to go back in time.
  • Children Are Innocent: Played with and Zigzagged.
  • Child Soldiers: The Tragic Variant. In Madgie, what did you? XIX, the children aren't given much of a choice in whether or not they want to but it is put that they have to fight. That, and their guardians, the ones that lead them, have would't put them up to it if they didn't have to.
  • Dead All Along: In Madgie, what did you do? XXVI: Requiem II, this is most prominent.
  • Dead Hand Shot: Some of the preview images have Madgie's and, at one point, Antoinette's hand.
  • Disease Bleach: Sometimes.
  • Driven to Suicide: The titular Madgie and, sometimes, Toki
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Doki in Madgie, what did you do? V
  • Endless Winter: Happens to a fair amount.
  • Empathy Doll Shot: Some of the preview images
  • Episode 0: The Beginning: Madgie, what did you do? 0: Beginning, where it all began
  • Everybody's Dead, Dave: In Madgie, what did you do? XLVI: I have outlived you all and, still, I remain trapped in a dying world, dying along with it, we have Doki who is all alone and everyone she and Bunny knew is dead and she, having a long lifespan, has spent 1,000 years alone.
  • Facial Horror: Unless Akai draws a picture of it as a preview image, it is usually described, but there is an image of Toki with a mass of tumors on her face. It's unsettling, to say the least.
  • Flower Motifs: Yes, sometimes. More often than not, it comes in the form of lilies
  • Foregone Conclusion: Usually, we know that someone is going to die by the title.
  • Ill Girl: Varies. Usually, it's Toki and other times it is Madgie.
  • Infant Immortality: Played with and more often than not averted in Madgie's case
  • Last Request: Toki's was for Bunny to say "hello to the sunshine" for her, during the events of Bullets and Sunshine
  • Mature Animal Story: This is a series featuring anthros and a lot of the subject matter here and there are not for a younger audience.
  • Mad Oracle: Toki, being in she mentally ill but otherwise says things that are true. However, she is usually on medicine to make her coherent.
  • Mercy Kill: In XIX, this is the reason as to why Toki has hidden herself in an underground safehouse. Well, needless to say, she's regretted it and says Madgie didn't give her a choice. Subverted, though, as Madgie is not explicitly mentioned as suffering, though if she was bleeding quite severely, so one would assume that she had been injured badly enough and was already dying, so what Toki regretted ever having to do had only quickened her death.
  • Noodle Incident: What the hell does Madgie do in the past that causes something so catastrophic in the future?! Well, we never find out, even when some parts are narrated from Madgie's POV. Justified, though, Word of God stated she wanted the readers to play with their imagination on it.
  • Numbered Sequels: Yup
  • OOC Is Serious Business: In some stories we have this with Doki, who is normally kind, gentle, and sweet.
  • Rape as Drama: In Revelation, this has happened to Doki and she was forced into prostitution afterward.
  • Stars Are Souls: In Madgie, what did you do? LII: Can I die happy, now?, Doki mentioned Madgie amongst the stars
  • Snow Means Death: Quite often this is used.
  • The Virus: Blood Rains, Shattered Plague, and Virus have some sort of illness spreading around.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Madgie is this or, occasionally, some of the stories has it where her fate is ambiguous but in most of them has it that she dies, often in horrible ways, ever since the second story to the rest. She gets better once time is reversed back to the way it was.
    • Actually, ANYONE that dies in series is like this, however, Madgie dies the most. This should be noted that this isn't for comedy, rather, in the first instance, it was to make the story more poignant.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: The fact in these stories, left and right from the sequel onward, there are children killing themselves, something that, otherwise, they really wouldn't have considered.
  • Truth in Television: Some of the material, from dying of radiation sickness in one story to mental illness in another, are actually based on real things
  • World War III: Not necessarily three, but there are an awful lot of nuclear wars.
