Added DiffLines:

* DarkFic: A lot of the retellings can be a lot darker than the originals, like Rob has Luke die in Film/ReturnOfTheJedi, Walter has Scar raising Simba in Disney/TheLionKing and Doug’s version of Film/MaryPoppinsReturns has far more grief details.


''Fanscription'' is a WebSite/ChannelAwesome show, created by Walter Banasiak and Rob Walker of WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic fame. It's essentially a FixFic show, taking movies that they care about but feel have problems, and making them better. Then they have a post-episode sit and talk, discussing behind the scenes. It's a monthly show, and they alternate the episodes.

''Fanscription'' ''[[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0AQIMR-tpolSV_hNOJ_V2GJhq3heZpfv Fanscription]]'' is a WebSite/ChannelAwesome show, created by Walter Banasiak and Rob Walker of WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic fame. It's essentially a FixFic show, taking movies that they care about but feel have problems, and making them better. Then they have a post-episode sit and talk, discussing behind the scenes. It's a monthly show, and they alternate the episodes.

Added DiffLines:

* BreatherEpisode: The Snyder Infinity War was far jokier than other episodes, and Rob admitted concern even though he thought it was really funny.
* {{Fanboy}}: The subjects of the episodes tend to be franchises both Rob and Walter grew up with and adore, which makes sense as it’s a FixFic show and you want to fix stuff you care about.
* FanDisservice: In a discussed example, Rob and Walter [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xG2noQi4kcY talk]] about Slave Leia, and even though they and Jim are "guy's guys", thought it was more weird and gross than fetish fuel.


Added DiffLines:

* FranchiseOriginalSin: In-universe. A bit with his own bias because he’s firmly believing the 2016 reboot is just SoOkayItsAverage, but Rob tries to point out with GB 2 that the guys who think it’s “SJW worst thing ever trash” are missing the point, and it’s just a symptom of Hollywood trying to make everything post first movie accessible to kids.
* GiveGeeksAChance: In “Ghostbusters 2”, Rob’s annoyed that they changed Janine’s character to super dork to match her with Lewis.
* ItsBeenDone: They’re adamant about not doing the Star Wars prequels, as they wouldn’t know where to start for one, and for another you can find plenty of videos on fixing them.
* StuffedIntoTheFridge: Walter changes Rocky IV because he feels Apollo’s death was cheap motivation for Rocky and that’s all it was.
* TakeThat: In the Rocky 5 Fanscription podcast, Rob joins the people who dislike ''WebVideo/CinemaSins'', using them as shorthand for needless nitpicking.


Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: In-universe. While they’re both frustrated with how little Ernie Hudson is used in the Ghostbusters movies, Rob who grew up with the first one gives it a pass but younger Walter isn’t so sure.

* TooSoon: On the Infinity War fanscription podcast, Walter said he stopped doing the Snyder character for a while because personal tragedy in the director’s life, and only came back after the “Batman should kill people” rant.

!!Tropes Include:

* FirstWorldProblems: Knowing full well how… passionate Star Wars fans can be, Walter and Rob point out on the “What If Luke Died In Return Of The Jedi” podcast that it's just fun media and don't yell at each other about it.
* TooSoon: On the Infinity War fanscription podcast, Walter said he stopped doing the Snyder character for a while because personal tragedy in the director’s life, and only came back after the “Batman should kill people” rant.
* VocalMinority: Rob and Walter joke in-universe that Rob does the franchises where fandoms rip into each other (Star Wars, Ghostbusters etc) and Walter’s fandoms are much more chill.
