''That's just the sort of person Lina was, always active, always leading an exciting life. Randomly moving from situation to situation. She was like a monster reincarnation of some hero long gone; a girl on the move, just lucky enough to be totally confident.''\\

Begun in 1998 by Stefan Gagne/Twoflower (If his name sounds familiar, it's probably because you've read or heard of one of his other works, ''SailorNothing''), ''Slayers Trilogy'' is what TF calls a "dramedy epic trilogy", which sums up the premise rather nicely. The story begins when Lina accidentally breaks a priceless magical artifact belonging to the Sailoon royal family, one with the potential to open up a whole new school of magic. At risk of being lynched by Sailoon's citizens, Lina (and Gourry) agrees to go a-questing for the means to reconstruct the artifact, and sure enough Zelgadis, Amelia, Xelloss, and Naga manage to get caught up in their quest along the way. But what starts as "just another adventure" quickly snowballs into an epic battle with the fate of the Red World hanging in the balance. [[ButWaitTheresMore And that's just in Reflect.]]

->''What starts as a simple quest to find some long lost magic eventually steamrolls into a battle for the fate of the world, digging deep into the backstory of Slayers (which I mostly made up as I went along, so canon twonks need not apply.)''

->''Once upon a time in fair Sailoon, there was a sorceress.''\\
''Let's call her Lina.''\\
''Lina was known across the land for a variety of reasons. She was a famous bandit hunter, magic slinger, world saver, and consumer of large dinners. With no fixed address, she wandered the world doing random quests and getting into surprising amounts of trouble. In recent times, her and her usual gang of cohorts managed to find a lost power, unearth a deadly danger from beyond space and time, and save the world from it; all in the span of a few weeks.''\\

->The first, and arguably the best work in Slayers to date.\\
-- '''Creator/{{Twoflower}}''', summarizing ''Slayers Trilogy''

It takes a lot of balls give your fanfic a summary like that. Assuming your would-be readers don't simply roll their eyes and move on to the next story, you're likely to get a reputation for being completely full of yourself when the hype backlash kicks in.

But when your name is Twoflower and the fanfic series in question is the ''Slayers Reflect/Chaos/Rebirth Trilogy'', there is no such thing as hype backlash, and nothing else will adequately describe what it is you have written.
