Narrative style

  • Take a shot whenever Marissa does any of this, which shows her misuse of the English language:
    • Using something that is not a verb as a verb, usually in the participlenote  or pastnote  form (to LOL, to happy, etc.)
      • Take two shots if it's a nationality, and therefore the word is taken to mean "to speak with an X accent" (to british, to russian, to texas, etc.)
    • Using the complete neologism "to o-mouth"
    • Using emoticons or txtspeak (yes, that means LOL counts as two shots)
    • Advertisement:
    • Censoring cursewords
      • Down the glass if you can't figure out what the curseword was, due to it having too many/too few asterisks, or the single letter that was not censored being wrong.
  • While misspellings are copious and taking a shot whenever something is misspelled will kill you before you get through Chapter 1, misspellings of all of these merit a shot:
    • Marissa's own name
    • another character's name, but only if either it's over-the-top or is lampshaded (Gabe vs. Cave, Jenny vs. Ginny, etc.)
    • the fic's title
    • the chapter number or the word "chapter" itself (chapter fife, sex, etc.)
    • "face"/"faces" as "feces"
  • Take a shot when Marissa prefaces a character's appearance with "… CHARACTER NAME!".
  • Take a shot whenever Marissa feels the need to preface a chapter, or a section of a chapter, with an indication on whose POV we are following.
    • Two shots if it's in third person.





  • Take a shot whenever a plot twist is so out of the line, it makes you wonder how Doombly/Marissa even came up with it in the first place.
  • Take a shot whenever time travel is involved, but none of the typical Time Travel Tropes are followed.


  • While TEEN FORTRESS 2 was still the current Marrissa fic, there were at least two distinct MarissaTheWriter drinking games proposed, one by the various reviewers of TEEN FORTRESS 2 and one by The Half-World. These, alongside a version by Dreigonix, have been integrated into a single game here.
