A TDA Love Triangle with Betty, Cody, and Gwenny Cover Picture

A TDA Love Triangle with Betty, Cody, and Gwenny is a Total Drama fan fiction made by Rufus T. Serenity.

It's TDA outside of the film lot. Gwen is out of the game and a pariah for breaking up with Trent. Geoff has become a jerk; he and Bridgette break up. Both girls find an unlikely friend in Cody and start to develop feelings for him as more than a friend. They are not on good terms because of the Trent debate. A Total Drama love triangle from the three character's points of view.

The story is on hold.


The story provides examples of:

  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: Bridgette. In canon, after Geoff realized he was becoming a jerk, he apologized to Bridgette and they got back together. In this story Geoff is even worse off camera, and, while trying to be understanding, Bridgette was at wit end. When she tried to talk to him, Geoff got angry and, after hours of yelling at her calling her a harlot and whore, he broke up with her, leaving her heart broken. And the producer heard about the fight and reminded Bridgette of the terms of her contract. If she acts any differently towards Geoff during the aftermaths, they can sue her mother. So she's pretty much trapped in an abusive relationship.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Geoff gets fully corrupted by fame during his time as host of the Aftermath and starts treating his former friends like garbage, and even insults and demeans his girlfriend Bridgette.

  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: In canon, Geoff realizes he was becoming a jerk and makes up with Bridgette. In this story, he becomes worse and breaks up with Bridgette.
  • Alternate Universe Fic: Basically showing how Season 2 would be if Geoff's corruption wasn't stopped; the story also focuses on the off-screen action, with the characters that didn't compete or were eliminated already.
  • Domestic Abuser: Geoff becomes a total Jerkass who mistreats and insults Bridgette on a regular basis. Even worse, despite breaking up, they're forced by contract to still be presented as a couple in the Aftermath episodes so Bridgette is stuck with him until the show ends.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Gwen and Bridgette both are warming up to Cody because of the kindness he show them when they are in a vulnerable position.
  • Better as Friends: Cody's love life until this point; apparently, he had been friend-zoned multiple times. While he feels bad over not getting a girlfriend, he still likes to know that he can comfort and help his female friends if necessary.
  • Both Sides Have a Point: Cody's feeling about Gwen and Trent's break up. He considers that Gwen certainly could have handled it much better but also realizes that she did the best she could.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Cody, as usual. He openly admits being a horny teenager, but he's also a very Nice Guy who will put the girls' comfort and necessities over his hormonal urges. He even feels guilty over having lusty thoughts on Gwen and Bridgette once he knows about their past bad experiences with guys.
  • Darker and Edgier: It has some strong, uncensored language; and, of course, the very accurate description of a rather gory video game.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Gwen to Cody. Originally she distrust Cody despite him hooking her up with Trent. Mainly because she thinks he want to use her break up with Trent as his chance to get closer to her. After talking with Cody and opening up to him about her problems and actions with him. She warm up to Cody and even say she officially thinking of him as a friend. And telling him she consider him her friend.
  • Elsewhere Fic: Type 2; showing Season 2's off-screen action. Unlike most examples, the canon characters are still the main ones, with the original characters only being mentioned or appearing in backup roles.
  • Executive Meddling: In-Universe, despite Geoff becoming a Jerkass, and Bridgette and him breaking up, they still must act like a couple in public because of their contracts' clauses.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Despite her friendship with Bridgette being ended, Gwen was sad to hear her break-up with Geoff and how Geoff was treating her.
  • A Friend in Need: Cody to Bridgette and Gwen. DJ counts too, on a lesser extent.
  • Friendship Moment: Cody has these with Gwen and Bridgette, which makes them both to start falling for him.
  • Give Geeks a Chance: After a while, Bridgette really considers dating Cody. It's Zigzagged with Gwen, who, despite not admitting it, is certainly developing feelings for Cody but still doesn't see him as more than a friend.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Bridgette feel she's this, with her not seeing signs when Geoff helped Duncan to bully Harold. Apparently this isn't the first time Bridgette totally misjudges a potential love interest, pointing out her terrible luck with boyfriends.
  • Hurt/Comfort Fic: Cody tries to help Bridgette and Gwen, both girls going through some very serious, hurting issues. Unknown to both girls, they're also giving Cody some comfort over his own insecurities and past troubles to get a girlfriend.
  • Internal Reveal: Gwen learn about Bridgette awful situation with Geoff from DJ in chapter 8.
  • Mistaken for Prostitute: Apparently, many guys think that Bridgette Really Gets Around. In reality, she comes from a town where different-gender friends often kiss, even in the lips, and see it as nothing more than a friendly showing of affection. That sometimes causes her troubles since Bridgette often forgets that things don't work that way in other places, leading to an undeserved reputation.
  • Nice Guy: Cody is quite nice and helpful to both Gwen and Bridgette. DJ also qualifies, comforting Gwen and sympathizing with Bridgette's awful situation with Geoff.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Gwen gets an instant liking for Cody's video game due to the very descriptive, gory and creative violence and death's scenes.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech; Geoff give one to Bridgette saying she's a doormat, who let anything slide because she was too spineless to do anything about it. He also called her a harlot and a whore, that all she cared about was making out…and still wasn't ready to have sex yet.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Both Gwen and Bridgette have suffered from really bad luck with love, mostly because most of the guys who've gone after them are jerks and/or pervs. They become attracted to Cody when he show himself to be a nice guy that help them with there problems.
  • Switching P.O.V.: The story's point of view alternates between Gwen, Bridgette and Cody's.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Geoff becomes a truly despicable guy.
  • Urban Legend Love Life: Played for Drama. Bridgette got a undeserved reputation as a slut because of the way she was raised; she is often very affective in public with her male friends, even kissing her sometimes, often forgetting that this might work in her hometown but not anywhere else.
  • We Used to Be Friends: This is the case with Bridgette and Gwen, as a result of the fiasco over the latter's breakup with Trentnote . It's also the case with Geoff towards Gwen and DJ, due to his Acquired Situational Narcissism being even worse in canon to the point where he begins abusing Bridgette.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Related with how Both Sides Have a Point, Cody tells Gwen that she doesn't deserve the general vilification she got from breaking up with Trent since she was just trying to deal with a difficult situation as best as she could.
