Does this qualify as a Dramedy? I'd like to check before adding it to the page.

Isnt this fanfiction?
05:57:36 AM Jan 21st 2016
... no? Fanfiction is prose.

According to Google, Prose is something that uses normal structure rather then rhythmic structure .

Not only does this never attempt at rhyming, there is probably also fanfiction that does rhyme.

Please forgive me if I'm being blunt, but is English not your first language? And what is your point?
08:37:36 AM Jan 21st 2016
no, english is not my first language.

you said fanfiction is prose, wich it isnt, nor does it have anything to do with wether this is fanfiction.
08:41:51 AM Jan 21st 2016
Prose generally means "written language." This is not written. It's a fanwork, but it's not fanfiction as the usual definition of fanfiction is text.

And I still don't get your point.

well i tought "fanfiction" just meant fiction set in someone else's fiction.

Wait, why are we now not using the "ee" spelling for Freeza? that's how it spelt for this series.

Is Android 17's drumbeat just a leitmotif or does it play in-universe from an internal speaker?

I dont know if this will sound crazy, but could Mr Popo qualify as a twisted version of a Big Good? He insta-gibs Garlic Jr, and, well, tells the dragon not to destroy the earth "yet", since he seems to want to wait to see if humans can "clean up this place," and proceeds to get everyone ressurected. He also provides the spaceship to go to Namek on his own initiative.

In his own LSD-ranting way, he does seem to be helping the good guys, and he definitely out-powers everyone else.

Am I shoehorning too much here or can this work?

The guy uses a spaceship powered by souls, doesn't torture cats (and only cats it seems), and only killed Garlic Jr. because he trashed his weed plants. Popo is not good, though he does have his Pet the Dog moments.

This series is so popular and has so many fans, that I don't think I can get away with putting in a negative trope in YMMV, someone will try to justify it or justify it and then delete it (it's happened to me before).

But I legitimately feel like Vegeta's something of a creator's pet. In a work where the only thing you own is the script, that puts a lot of weight on the script, and Vegeta gets all the best lines and quips. They fit his character, and it's not that the others are lacking, but I just feel like they're kind of saving all their best stuff for Vegeta.

I can't be the only one who thinks this way, right?

You are rarely alone with an opinion.

That's not really Creator's Pet, though. beloved by the creators and being put in the spotlight are only half of what makes Creator's Pet.
09:02:30 AM Feb 28th 2014
Even if he's put in the spotlight, he's still portrayed as a total asshole who never really accomplishes anything. There's nobody in the series that talks up how good Vegeta is except for Vegeta, and then he gets his arse kicked.

For me Vegeta was good in the pre-buu sagas, after that he is to the other character(especially Yamcha) what SpongeBob and Patrick is for Squidward http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkntaGCIRmg&t=13m59s
