Fanfic / Errors In Continuity

Go To

"When a magical, half-demon superheroine, a timid, gender-ambiguous swordsman, and the self-proclaimed greatest space pirate in the universe get together to read some bad fanfics, this happens. A commentary on just about anything. Rated for language."

Errors in Continuity is a series of MST Fics by Zero VX. The main fic features Raven From the Comicbook/TV Show Teen Titans; Crona from the Soul Eater manga; and an OC named Subarrashii. There is also the Soul Eater spin off starring Crona and Maka; and the Teen Titans fic stars Raven, Beast Boy, Starfire, Cyborg, and Robin. The main point of these fics are to tear badfics a new one the size of the Grand Canyon, but there are a few aside chapters that allow the reader to see the character's lives.


The Soul Eater fic crosses over with Breaking Point by Roving Otter, and can be read here.

The main fic can be found here.

And you can read the Soul Eater spinoff here.

The author decided to move to Tumblr, with all existing and future chapters:

The Teen Titans spinoff was taken down by the site, but has since been put up on Tumblr.

On May 20th 2015 the series was officially canceled.

This work provides examples of:

  • A Day In The Lime Light: Subarashii gets one in Chapter 21 "Quality." It really helps flesh out his character.
  • Affably Evil: Subarashii is so relaxed and fun that it's very easy to forget he is in fact a criminal who never once expresses any remorse for his crimes.
  • Bad Ass Boast: This is how Subarashii always introduces himself.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Maka+just about anything negative=Angry Crona
    • Do not mention Ninja Jesus around Subarashii.
  • Crossover:
    • The main concept of the series.
    • Also has one with the Breaking Point here. Fan Fic by Roveingotter.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Subarashii may be a pirate who acts in a most uncouth manner, but flies into a frenzy when the host Reveals that Maka and Crona are fictional, causing them to go through mind rape.
  • Everyone Calls Him Bar Keep: The obscure, near-omnipotent scientist who set the review theater up is referred to as 'The Host.'
  • Fighter, Mage, Thief: The main cast fits this mold: Crona - Fighter, Raven - Mage & Subarashii - Thief
  • Hidden Depths Subarashii. At first he seems like a standerd deconstruction of OCs, but the bit of exposition in chapter 21 makes you feel sorry for the poor bloke.
  • Mind Rape: This is what happens to anyone who discovers they are fictional and doesn't posses Fourth Wall awareness
  • Advertisement:
  • Nice Hat: Subarashii has one that he is quite protective of.
  • Running Gag: All but averted; even the idea of a Running Gag is one.
  • Shipper on Deck: Subarashii for both the Crona/Maka and Crona/Raven ships the latter of which he abandoned after learning of the general hazards involved.
  • Ship Tease:
    • Subverted: The author intends for for Crona and Maka to eventually get together, but puts Crona and Raven in many... awkward situations.
    • Hell, the author even states that he's trying to get this paring going!
  • Shout-Out: Far too many to list but they are counted by Subarashii. There is even a counter for them in the original (but oddly not in the Soul Eater spinoff.)
  • Space Pirate: Subarashii claims to be the best there is.
  • Sword and Gun: Subarashii carries a sword and pistol. So far, he's only got to use them on notes and fan mail.
    • He also has a bad-ass hat, and will fuck you up if you mess with it.
