These 'no-nonsense' solutions of yours just don't hold water in a complex world of jet-powered apes and time travel.
"I know I'm not the handsome prince for whom you waited. I don't have a fancy castle, and I'm not sophisticated. A princess and an ogre, I admit, is complicated. You've never read a book like this, but fairytales should really be updated."
—Shrek: The Musical, Big Bright Beautiful World, reprise.
"Though this irredeemable world has its continuing hatred and tragedies... this is still the place that she once tried to protect. I remember that. And I will never forget it. That's why I'll keep fighting."

[about Andrew Hussie] He does almost everything a bad author would do, and somehow makes it work. He makes a story full of Mary Sues. He works in numerous inexplicable time paradoxes. He makes a comic with incredibly shitty words and art (S Ba HJ). All of these are things most authors would immediately discard as stupid. But because of both the scale of the situation the characters are placed within, it works. The character's sue like traits and abilities get them through non important bits, but fail them when they need them most. The paradoxes are explained via a Universe space that allows them to be such. S Ba HJ is hailed as hilarious by being so intentionally awful. Hussie thought outside the box by doing idiotic things that he managed to make incredible, not to mention near unprecedented.
