YMMV / Meg's Family Series

  • Growing the Beard: It's not until "Little Maddie Lost" that the story gets really good, as it is the first chapter to have Meg and Zack's daughter Maddie talk.
    • "Jillian the Genius" marked the end of the mediocre chapters following the fanmail.
  • Les Yay: Olivia is pretty much in love with Maddie.
  • Moment of Awesome: Several, but what takes the cake is in "Home For The Holidays", where Zack and the Griffins tell off Frank, Zack's Jerkass abusive father.
  • Tear Jerker: "Time Stew" has Zack's death in the Alternate Timeline, which is followed by Meg's suicide.
  • Unintentionally Sympathetic: "Cody's Mom" shows that Maddie is in the wrong for being quite jealous of Cody after Nikki abandoned him on a freezing winter day. Yes, calling him a "bastard" was uncalled for, but Maddie was being ignored by Meg, who rebuked her for being jealous at one point.
