board, in a
High School AU
Staring many of the notable Newer Posters, and casting the older big name posters as the Faculty, It follows the bizarre Happenings at an Interdimensional High School.
One would think that sounds pretty straightforward and kinda boring, but what follows can probably be described as
Cromartie High School on drugs
, if that's even possible. It's probably telling when one of the few really Sane characters undergoes a
ever other chapter or so.
This series is heavily influenced by High School Animes, and whatever else the writers fancy at the moment, which tends to go all over the place.
New Episodes are posted on the Main AH.com Website, but they now have their own website, where the Episodes will slowly be going up. Seasons one, two and three have already been completed on both sites, and Season Four is currently undergoing its run.
Read it here
AH.com Wiki page of the series
also has an overview of all the episodes so far.
Contains Examples Of Academy of Adventure: Unsurprisingly.... Action Girl: Othyrsyde, Evilprodigy and Turquoise Blue. A Day in the Limelight: done for Lord_Roem, FDW, Othyrsyde, Ynnead/Ryder, Evilprodigy and Emperor_Norton_I. Catboy has gotten a Three episode version, Nothingnow's Day has been completed and Turquoise Blue had one as well. Fenrir_Angerboda has stated his intent to do one for each of the Main characters. Aliens Are Petty: what caused the Aliens to go on Rampage? British food. All Just a Dream: the Halloween Episode "HORRIFIC SHIT HAPPENS". We think. THE DISASSOCIATION OF OTHYRSYDE. maybe. "A Really Terrible Idea" as well. It might be a pure version, but knowing this series? We can only hope. Alternate Continuity: Essential, Fenrir_Angerboda, FDW and whatever other writers attempt to throw their hats in the ring are writing their own versions of the series. Sometimes there are Continuity Nods to each other, sometimes there isn't. Alternate Universe: it's implied that Ynnead switches between his AU counterparts Alternate Universe Fic: "The Melancholy of Evilprodigy" is basically a High School AU, for a High School AU, Albeit one based more on Shoujo. An Arm and a Leg: Beedok gets her arm cut off in her fight against Nothingnow An Ass Kicking Christmas: Shiny Happy Krall's Christmas-time Massacre. Anyone Can Die: it's probably Easier to list who hasn't died. Which is a Grand total of one, OTHYRSYDE. Fenrir_Angerboda bit it during Season one, Catboy was killed in CATBOY VERSUS THE HOMAGE, Ynnead, Nothingnow and Lord_Roem were Killed in HORRIFIC SHIT HAPPENS, and FDW was vaporized in the Alien Invasion. Anything That Moves: DoctorWhat. April Fools' Day: The series was canceled and replaced with a Teen Drama inspired counterpart. Artificial Human: Othyrsyde, maybe Ascended Extra: NothingNow. His first appearance was in a In-universe Fanfic in Season 1, and he made the leap to Major Character in Season 2 this also is true for him outside of the Story. He's started as a reader, but has become the Third editor of the Series after the First two left. Others, such as Evilprodigy, and Turquoise Blue have made the transition to important characters. Ascended Bronies: some of the student-turn-ponies turn out to be Bronies, and want to Remain Ponies. Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: there was a Giant Man-eating Salamander. Only twenty feet, but it still counts. It was a mutated Axolotl actually, but that's not a big difference. ....Which is a Salamander last I checked..... Exactly. and Then Roem becomes Bulldog_Churchill_Roem. Author Avatar: You'd think so, since, somewhat like it's counterpart series, all of the authors so far are also characters in the series. They like to do horrible things to each other, and to the rest of the cast. Of course, since Characterization Marches On, the cast often have very different personalities from the people that inspired them. Leading to it sounding like the Writers and commentators are talking in the third person in the comments. Back from the Dead: because Death Is Cheap. Badass Boast: Fenrir delivers one to Princess Rainbow Sparkle Fenrir_Angerboda: "Now I can add killing a god to my Resume." Badass Teacher: Arguably Emperor_Norton_I. Bad Santa: Bad_Santa_Krall Baleful Polymorph: FDW builds a laser that blows up and turns most of the School into Ponies. Battle Couple: Lord_Roem and Othyrsyde. Beach Episode: "Because all we have are Beaches here" Berserk Button: the Kazakh border and Justin Bieber for KRALL. BFS: Kome wields a lightsaber cleaver blade against Nothingnow. Big Damn Heroes: Subverted in "In Which Levels of Baddass are taken". FDW attempts to make a Dramatic Entrance Through the window for... Fenrir_Angerboda: "I replaced the window with Shatterproof glass." played straight with the SOM brigade showing up to help the SOF brigade Somethingnow, Beedok and Turquoise Blue intervene before Everythingnow Can kill Nothingnow Big Damn Kiss: Roem and Othyrsyde finally Share one in "Break Through the Dream Part IV" Bloodier and Gorier: Season 3 has taken that tone. Bloody Hilarious: In a effort to make his Zombie Maid uniforms look more authentic, FDW used Exposed Organs for them. Ynnead, Catboy and Lord_Roem's Exposed Organs. Body Horror: Australium quickly turns people into Musclebound Screaming Australians. Brain Bleach: Invoked by Nothingnow during his fight with Kilngirl. Nothingnow: "….you know what, just get over here so I can kill you. Then I can do everything in my power to forget that this episode even happened." Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: Blue Max: "There are…reports of various events from around the school. Water Buckets above doors. Unscrewed Saltshakers. Drawing Moustaches on all the portraits of Queen Victoria, Claudia, Elizabeth, and Margaret. Shoelaces tied together. In fact, THANDE and DOCTOR_WHAT are in the Hospital because some one replaced their…… videos with something called “Pure white lover Bizarre Jelly”, and a video of DOCTOR_WHAT in the shower.
I don’t want to talk anymore about that."
Breaking the Fourth Wall: Occasionally. Breather Episode: "He's Late", following the Three part "Catboy Vs the Homage". "In Which Nothing Out of the ordinary happens" has nothing major happening. Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Much Most of the staff, Especially Doctor What, GeorgePatton, and KRALL. Butt Monkey: Lord_Roem, although he's becoming less of one lately. It looks like Leo Caesius might become one. Ynnead, Catboy and The Unmentionable Sea Mammal also have shades of this. Calling Your Attacks: FDW:"MAIN CHARACTER DEFENSIVE TECHNIQUE, MAJOR CHARACTER SHIELD!" Fenrir_Angerboda: "ASSHOLE DEFENSIVE MANUVER 7! NOOB MEAT SHIELD!" Emperor_Norton_I
KRALL: "I-REFUSE-TO-ACCEPT-YOUR-BASE-MAP-PUNCH!" Fenrir_Angerboda: MAN-ON-FIRE-BLAZING PSYCHIC-KICK!" ImperialVienna Needs to shout his attack names for them to work. Beedok also feels the need to scream her attack names when she uses them. Catch Phrase: numerous. "Goddammit FDW!" for Ynnead, " what" for NothingNow, and "I find that Strangely Arousing" for Dr. What. FDW had "MOAR MOTIVATION", but it seems to have fallen out of use. FDW notes he hasn't used it in a year in Meet The Sealions Cerebus Syndrome: Begins to develop a real continuity in season two. This arguably helps to improve the series. Chainsaw Good: Bad_Santa_Krall and Fenrir_Angerboda have a Chainsaw duel in the Christmas Episode. Fenrir Continues this theme, when he picks up a chainsaw during the Alien Invasion. Somethingnow wields a Chainsaw in her battle against the undead. Chaotic Stupid: FDW. Chekhov's Gun/ Person/ Skill/ Gag: Things are never quite forgotten. Christmas Episode: Episode 2x15 "Shiny Happy Krall's Christmas-Time Massacre" Cloud Cuckoo Lander: FDW. Combat Pragmatist: ImperialVienna Tries to be one, Nothingnow Catches it though. Cool Old Guy: Emperor_Norton_I. Crazy Memory: Lord_Roem has one where he re-imagines himself as Sparkling Barbarian-esque hero. Catboy immediately calls him out on it. Crippling Over Specialization: Emperor_Norton_I teaches a class about Ronald Reagan. All of them Dark-Skinned Blond: SomethingNow, and maybe NothingNow, depending on who you ask. Death Is Cheap: People don't stay dead for very long, that is, when they're actually dead, anyway. so far the only Characters who have remained dead are Mojojojo, Godsown1991, Hashasheen, Imajin and Doragon Death Glare: Othyrsyde's Death glare can blow up Machines. Death Seeker: Kome. Nothingnow obliges him. Demoted to Extra: Randomideaguy. Former writer, main character, and editor in season 1, quite a bit less important in season 2. Isnt it sad RIG? ;_; Randomideaguy even disappeared for the first half of season three, before showing up out of nowhere with out an explanation, both instory and IRL. NothingNow even had trouble remembering when he had last appeared. So, is accidental Chuck Cunningham Syndrome a thing? Blackwave, and several Others also fall in this Category. Whether or not this is for the better is up to the readers. Evilprodigy, Catboy, and Lord_Roem have less focus on them in seasons 3 and 4. Department of Redundancy Department: This: FDW:I do not care if you are Canadian, Mormon, Human, Jewish, Communist, Canadian, Japanese, Wapanese, Krallian, Alien, Canadian or Canadian! Depending on the Writer: Character personalities swing around wildly. the only real Constant is Emperor Norton, KRALL and Patton. Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Lord Roem kills Thande-Prime. this briefly causes Reality to collapse Distaff / Spear Counterpart: arrives in the form of MDW, Something Now, Alt!Ynnead, Lady_Roem, Hecate_Angerboda, Thyssyde and Catgirl. More have been introduced including Goodprodigy and Fuschia Red. Doujinshi: Fenrir_Angerboda collects them. Eagle Land: Catboy is this. So is BigTex, since they're from the same world. Easily Thwarted Alien Invasion: in Episode 2x17 "CREEPY VS CREEPIER (WHO AM I TALKING ABOUT)?" The Pony's attempt to invade and take over the school can also be considered this. Elaborate University High: It has an Armory. With Cannons. Eldritch Abomination: Hecate Angerboda. Dialogue between Fenrir and Othyrsyde indicate that more of them exist. Further conversations name several of them. Else Worlds / Something Completely Different: the Summer episodes seem to be taking this path. End of the Multiverse as we know it: Roem destroyed the multiverse by Killing Thande-Prime. Hecate somehow recreated it. Everything's Better with Monkeys: the Kiat Summons Demon Hipster Monkeys in his battle against Catboy. Expy: the SOF Brigade Eye Scream: TheUnmentionableSeaMammal takes a Candy cane to the eye in the Christmas Special. The Great and Powerful Turquoise_Blue gets both her eyes slashed out by Nothingnow's laser swords. Fate Worse than Death: PRINCIPAL IAN's punishments for breaking the Fourth Wall in 2x02. Highlights include stranding Mmmeee0 in a world without Pot, and sending CATBOY to an America run by an unholy combination of Rush Limbaugh, Anne Coulter, and Michael Moore. Five-Man Band: Gadgeteer Genius / Mad Scientist: FDW has his moments, as evidenced by the Austrian Death Machine from 2x13. Gender Bender: Ynnead/Ryder. started as a Girl, and tends to swap back and forth. another example would be an In-universe Fanfic Fenrir_Angerboda made in season 1. Gender Flip: Hashasheen. the real Hashasheen is a guy. Evilprodigy still qualifies....sense it turns out she's really a G.I.R.L. the real Rainbow Sparkle is also a guy. Get Ahold Of Yourself Man: Nothingnow gives one to Lord_Roem to snap him out of his Heroic BSOD Giant Enemy Crab: the Rock Lobster in the Beach Episode. Girl With Psycho Gatling Gun: Othyrsyde during the Alien invasion. Groin Attack: Due to...ImperialVienna's unusual weapons mounting, Nothingnow Kicks him in the crotch. This then takes a Horrific turn as the ImperialVienna's Laser codpiece Explodes. Kilngirl attempts this on Nothingnow, only to find out he wears a cup. Gym Teacher Nasty: GeorgePatton. Seriously. Halloween Special: 2010 had "Horrific Shit Happens" Headdesk: Normal for Ynnead. Homage: Catboy Vs the Homage is a Three Chapter example of this. Humongous Mecha: Turntable Z VS Liberty Catboy Prime Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: Multiple Patterns. They're either a shout out, vaguely descriptive, lampshading something, or address the audience, either as an apology, or a confession. And they're usually capitalized. I Love Nuclear Power: FDW's insistence on the value of Radium Toast as a remedy. Instrument of Murder: even Dynamite hates Lord_Roem's vuvuzela. Intercourse with You: Othyrsyde and Fenrir play a game where they name all the Innuendo filled songs they can. Jerkass: Fenrir, Depending on your Interpretation. Catboy: The only fact about Fenrir that you can take at face value is that he’s an asshole and everything else that he says is probably bullshit. Kid from the Future: Somethinglater. Lampshade Hanging: some of the Episode titles, including "Possibly the Reason Enrollment has fallen in the past few years", and "Probably one of the stranger episodes this season...." Large Ham: KRALL. Emperor_Norton_I and GeorgePatton can be this at times. Last of His Kind: Fenrir and Hecate. Latter Nothingnow and Somethingnow. Leaning on the Fourth Wall: season 1 episode "THE REASON WE SHOULDN'T LET FENRIR WRITE MORE EPISODES". Fenrir in "THE DISASSOCIATION OF OTHYRSYDE" Lethal Chef: FDW's Grandmother and FDW. It's implied that her cooking killed her. Loads and Loads of Characters: It's a school, What were you expecting? Magical Girl: Sparkling Magic Limey Thande in 2x19. The less is said of this, the better. and then followed up With Magic Goo Bunny Ynnead. Don't Ask. and then Finally played straight with Mythical Multiversial Canuck Evilprodigy. Yes, the axe-hockey stick wielding French-Canadian plays this somewhat straight. Or at least plays with it in a not so disturbing manner. Turquoise Blue also counts as this. However, she's a pony now... McNinja: Beedok. Mind Screw: THE DISASSOCIATION OF OTHYRSYDE, again. Multiversal Conqueror: an army of Alternate Dimension Thandes show up, apparently as the main villains for "BREAK THROUGH THE DREAM" Mundane Fantastic: Yeah, Some of the events in the background (and off screen) are hideously bizarre, and the plots can be even more so, and they realize that. But well, they're not really as concerned with how Catboy made the Super Serum as they are that the Twenty Foot Salamander's trying to eat them. No Fourth Wall: Played with. Fenrir_Angerboda was completely aware that there was a script in THE DISASSOCIATION OF OTHYRSYDE, but because it was a dream no ones quite sure.... No Indoor Voice: KRALL. Non Sequitur Thud: after being Shocked back into consciousness, Catboy begins singing Fergie's London Bridge FDW gets one after getting an EZ bake oven thrown at his head: FDW
: Yes Mr.
, I'll be your Dipping Sauce Bitch.
Official Couple: Lord Roem and Othyrsyde. and now Alt!Ynnead and Nothignow. Only a Flesh Wound: Nothingnow is shot in the shoulder in his battle against Big_Tex. Despite that, it has little effect on his battle. Only Sane Man: Ynnead/Ryder. Usually. Blue Max can be this as well on occasion. Opposite-Sex Clone: Most of the Counterparts seen in the series so far. Petting Zoo People: Depending on the writer, Catboy. Post Modernism: Very much a core ingredient of the series, and especially evident in parts of Season Two. Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: Delivered by Blue Max in 2x11. Psychic Powers: Fenrir_Angerboda. Mojojojo also has these until they are taken away by the Good Taste Police. Quip to Black: CATBOY tries to pull one. CATBOY: "(after Mojojojo loses his Electric powers) Looks like.." (Puts on sunglasses) "A shocking turnabout. YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Real Song Theme Tune: used to open and close every episode. the most Commonly used Band is The Killers. Reasonable Authority Figure: Emperor_Norton_I to a large extent. Double Standard: Rape, Male on Male: NothingNow and The Unmentionable Sea Mammal. Maybe. Could be a Shrug of God? it is. NothingNow confirmed that he doesn't know what happened. Nor does he want to know. Red Shirt Army: The US Army lead by Georgepatton in DANCING WITH CATBOYS. Fenrir Turns the remaining student Body into one during "BREAK THROUGH THE DREAM" Richard Nixon the Used Car Salesman: the Various Alternate Reality Ronald Reagans that are mentioned. Rule of Cool: Admit it. Running Gag: Patton's tanks blowing up. Nothingnow getting shot/stabbed in the same shoulder. Sadist Teacher: KRALL and GeorgePatton. Scary Black Man: Thyssyde, Othyrsyde's counterpart Schedule Slip: The first season took about five months to peter out. However, it has been averted with the second season, which been posted on time every week, save once, when it was three hours late. Admittedly, it did take a couple of weeks off, but those were announced well ahead of time, and were for good reason. Happens a few times in Season 3. Screw Yourself: Played with in 2x18, Krall and RHAF Krall get it on, while Fenrir ask Hecate what it's considered. Self-Deprecation: Used at times. Most notably as a book titled "HOW TO GET BETTER WRITERS FOR YOUR INTERNET ORIGINAL SERIES" Shamu Fu: Othyrsyde takes on the giant Lobster with a Shark. Shock and Awe: Mojojojo's superpower. Shout-Out: where do we even start..... Everything. Everything is a Shout out to something or another. Unless it's not. Which probably isn't the case. Sitting on the Roof: done quite often. It's less romance and More Fleeing the Plot. Sliding Scale of Fourth Wall Hardness: Depends on the writer. Small Girl, Big Gun: Othyrsyde in 2x17. Yes, She's The Big Guy, but, well, no matter how you put it, a minigun's pretty damn big. Snap Back: How else does the School recover from whatever just happened or how everyone else comes back to life? Space Whale Aesop: in Classic Twilight Zone fashion, "The Creepy Zone" gets Aesops. Just not the kind you expect. Spider Tank: The Austrian Death Machine. A laser equipped walking monstrosity with a Coffee Maker for a head that spews Stallone and Schwarzenegger quotes. and it's Successor, the Austrian Death Machine 2.0. This time with Hulk Hogan quotes. Super Serum: Catboy's (Off Screen) attempt at making Citric Acid. Take That: US President Obama appears in one episode. . .

That Came Out Wrong: While referring to the Catnip Fenrir stuffed into his pants Lord_Roem: Catboy wants what's in my pants. Nothingnow/Big_Tex
The Bechdel Test: referenced and passed in 2x19, with a pair of lesbians discussing vacation plans. Unusually, in every appearance, the two women are referred to only as NINJA#1 and NINJA#2 in the script, and never actually named by a character. Othyrsyde and Turquoise Blue may have also passed the test in "My Life as a Teenaged Magical Pony". The Gunslinger: Big Tex. The Smurfette Principle: Due to the gender imbalance of the Site, the first actual female Character was Othyrsyde in Season 2. this seems to be Ending, as EvilProdigy, and Turquoise Blue has joined the cast. The Stinger: At the end of "Break Through the Dream Part 4", It turns out Nothingnow still has his lightsaber. At the end of Boast Beatings Princess Rainbow Sparkle resurrect Turquoise_Blue as a pony. At the End of Pony Wars a Massive fleet begins to move out to find the ponies. Someone has plans for the Geist/ Lord_Vetinari and Beedok Took a Level in Badass: Pretty much everyone in "In Which Levels Of Badass are taken" Nothingnow seems to be doing so in "No More Nothingnow" True Companions: As often as the group bickers with each other, they really do see each other as friends. Except FDW Uncanceled: the Series petered out after an 8-episode first season. Sense then, it's been brought back and is going strong. Unexplained Recovery: Several Characters have Died. They're usually back by the Next Episode. Imajin attempts to explain how he came back, but Nothingnow cuts him off. Unfazed Everyman: NothingNow, as far as we know. Universal-Adaptor Cast: Following the Footsteps of AH.com: The Series, AH.com Wars, AH.com The Next Generation, and others. Unsound Effect: Pelvic Thrust Villainous Crossdresser: FDW. He's not a villain, but he's not exactly Heroic Either.... Wham Episode: "Break Through the Dream: Did you See that Coming?" Othyrsyde Disappears into Light, as a Massive Ship appears on the Horizon. Wham Line: At the end of "CREEPY VS CREEPIER (WHO AM I TALKING ABOUT)": Fenrir_Angerboda: They beat them? Heh. I wouldn’t have hired them if I wasn’t sure they would lose. and at the End of "No More Nothingnow" Alt!Ynnead: I love you. Whole Plot Reference: CATBOY VS the Homage. Plans are made to continue similar episodes in later Seasons. Season three had "The Ynnead Horror Picture Show." Wholesome Crossdresser: Occasionally Ynnead/Ryder. Is Ynnead really a Crossdresser if He/She/It changes gender every time? Male version has been in a dress several times. Words Can Break My Bones: Zombie Imajin fights by screaming words at Nothingnow and Somethingnow, and having the words turn into letters that fly towards and attack them. Word Salad Title: at times. "Shiny Happy Krall's Christmas time massacre" is probably the best example. Wrestler in All of Us: Despite being a Pony, Iserlohn Performs Several The People's Elbow NothingNow Mentions that he has started watching wrestling videos to improve his fighting skills. he later uses several Suplexs against his opponents. Beedok performs a Double Wrist Suplex against The Geist. Yandere: Lady_Roem Yaoi Fanboy/girl: Evilprodigy. Possibly Fenrir. You said you would spare My Earth: The Reason Fenrir worked to get something the Thandes wanted. They lied. Yuri Fan: Fenrir Again. Maybe. Zombie Apocalypse: the Ponies and Evilprodigy are sent to a Pony Universe where this has happened. the Reborn Imajin Attempts to start one, only to have Nothingnow and Somethingnow destroy them all.
