The Half-World is a blog originally dedicated to Fan FicMSTs run by Skepkitty. It used to comprise of awful fanfictions from fandoms such as Invader Zim, Twilight, Harry Potter, and Portal; as well as various other posts (some of which are MSTs in their own right, though not of FanFics). The site, which was started in September 2010 but didn't post any MSTs or attract much attention until early 2011, saw rapid growth in the first two years and now has over 250 chapters of MSTs. Currently, the blog is more focused on reviewing published literature, as Skepkitty has grown and picking on authors that are younger than him has become an issue.He has taken on these stories: note He even gives a handy index with roughly what you could expect in each story and warnings/pairings. (Sorted in order of appearance)
HATE. LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I’VE COME TO HATEYOUR STORY SINCE I BEGAN TO MST IT. THERE ARE BETWEEN 80 AND 120 BILLION NEURONS, ACCORDING TO WIKIPEDIA, THAT FILL MY BRAIN. IF THE WORD HATE WAS ENGRAVED ON EACH NANOANGSTROM OF THOSE TENS OF BILLIONS OF NEURONS IT WOULD NOT EQUAL ONE ONE-BILLIONTH OF THE HATE I FEEL FOR YOUR STORY AT THIS MICRO-INSTANT. FOR YOU. HATE. HATE.
“Hallo, mein Name ist Grazie, ich freue mich darauf, Sie kennen zu allen! Ach ja, und Frau Bitter ist ein horribe Lehrer und hat keine Ahnung, was ich sage, so HA! Toodles!”
According to Babelfish, that means: “Hello, my name is Grazie, I looks forward to it, you knows to all! Oh, and Mrs. Bitter is not a horrible teacher and has notion, which I say, so HA! Toodles!” I would suspect that what she meant is “Hello, my name is Grazie, I look forward to meeting you all! Oh, and Ms. Bitters is a horrible teacher and has no idea what I’m saying, so HA! Toodles!” I can’t explain the “Toodles!”
Allow me to rant here: you should never base a character on yourself. It just sets you up for viewing the character as you, rather than as a tool with which to write a story, and then you become attached and don’t want to make anything bad happen to the character because that’s you, and you also don’t want to show the character’s bad side because you’d like to present yourself in the best light, and before you know it you’ve turned your character into a Sue.

Ur Example: Love Knows No Race was actually written in 2002, inciting Skepkitty to point something out...
I was going to suggest that Marissa try to get a part in this, but then I realized that this story was written in 2002. Since it’s such an old Zimfic, maybe, instead of just borrowing every Zimfic cliché in the book, the author helped invent those clichés, which makes it worse in a way.
Which also makes it older than My Immortal, which by The Half-World's present day (2012) had become a badfic classic.
The site’s name comes from a phrase my mom uses sometimes; when I’m spacing out, she'll say “You’re staring into the half-world”. When I was trying to come up with a good name for the site, this was the only name that stuck. It’s rather appropriate for a blog filled with the kind of stuff I think about when spacing out.
