Fanfic / Inner Demon

Go To

"Inner Demon" is a "Uncle Grandpa" Dark Fic by House City 101.

There is something wrong with Pizza Steve lately. He slowly feels depressed and less like himself. And then he's robbing stores and murdering innocent people. But why is he doing this? It's because he has an Inner Demon. The voice in his head is controlling him to do all of these deeds for a mysterious purpose. So when Pizza Steve creates a spell to reveal the voice, things change from bad to worse...


Can be read here, but be warned. It becomes more darker and gorier than it can get.

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

Inner Demon includes examples of the following:

  • Abusive Parents: There's Laura Oliver from the third chapter, Toxic, where she despised her daughters ever since they were born and killed them off after her husband was murdered.
    • Not to mention Riley's parents from Innocence, who basically physically and mentally abuse their daughter. But thankfully, Riley was able to beat them up as revenge for what they did to her.
    • Hunter has both a pretty nasty mother and brother whose cold behavior driven him to mass murders out of revenge.
    • And lastly, Alice herself had parents who punished her for self defense.
  • Ax-Crazy:
    • Alice obviously.
    • Hunter from Lie, too.
  • Big Bad: The inner demon in Pizza Steve's head. It later turns out to be a immortal being named Alice the Wonder, who definitely shows how menacing she can be.
  • Bittersweet Ending: So far, this happened at the end of Innocence where Riley was killed off by Alice. In order to cheer him up, Riley tells Pizza Steve that she will finally be in peace while seeing Scott and his father again.
    • At the end of Sally, Pizza Steve attempts to shoot Sally with a gun by killing her parents first. But before he kills Sally, he tells her that they can play a game and he remembers the time they had together. Extra points for Sally being completely innocent of what's going on.

  • Bloodier and Gorier: This fanfic deals with a lot of violence on attempted murder and suicide.
  • Dark Fic: And it shows!
  • Darker and Edgier: For a fanfic based on a Lighter and Softer cartoon with a weird but fun premise, this has a lot of heavy themes surrounding killing, abuse, suicide, and many more.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Turns out Alice is out for revenge on the living because her parents and the school harshly punished her for getting back at a bully who spread lies and picked on her for not getting the role of Alice.
  • Gosh Darn It to Heck!: Starting from the first chapter, almost all of the swear words have the first letter replaced to make it sound clean. But by the start of Memory, it started to use regular curse words now.
  • Heroic BSoD: Pizza Steve suffers from this most of the time.

  • Kill the Ones You Love: This has to happen to Pizza Steve where he is forced to cause an incident that may end up killing a person he befriended. So far, Andy, Laura, Riley, Hall, and Sally were killed off.
  • Meaningful Name: Alice the Wonder's name is based off from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Also, the way she dresses is similar to how Alice wears because she died while crashing a school play based off the book and killing nearly everyone.
  • Sympathetic Murderer: Pizza Steve is definitely this. He is forced to kill innocent people and yet, he feels ashamed of himself for doing do.
    • Alice turns out to be this in Memory.
    • Hunter in Lie is also one of these.
  • Twist Ending: So far Toxic and Steal have these endings as well.
  • Was Once a Man: Alice was revealed to once be a human girl in the ending of Steal, and was involved in a elementary school massacre that she caused.
  • Wham Episode: Has plenty of these so far.
    • Andy starts off quick when Alice is revealed and forces Pizza Steve to kill off Andy, which he sadly does.
    • Even bigger in Toxic, where it was revealed that Laura actually hated her entire family, and waited for the right time to get rid of them. She even thanks Pizza Steve for murdering her husband, and finally, commits suicide while smiling in glee.
    • Innocence has Pizza Steve being tricked by Alice to kill of Scott and his father for being killers and Riley getting revenge at her parents before being killed by Alice.
    • The ending to Steal got big when it's revealed that Alice was the one who made Hal join the mafia. And also, Pizza Steve discovers that Alice was once a human girl.
    • Memory gets way to big when it reveals Pizza Steve and Alice's backstories.
    • The next chapter Sally became a major Tear Jerker where Pizza Steve meets a little girl name Sally, who is surviving a terrible illness. And of course, he has to kill her and her parents. This also became a turning point for the entire fanfic as well.
    • Lie instantly became the turning point for the rest of the story. After killing Sally and her parents, Pizza Steve, who is in a complete depression, finally manages to attempt suicide. However, he was able to survive in the local hospital and a lot of things get worst from here...
      • Later on in the chapter, when he was trying to calm down the murder Hunter Jones, he unexpectedly reveals his dark secret to him. Sure it manages to help him at first, but it quickly ended once Hunter realizes that Pizza Steve was the one who framed him for the Fields' death. And sadly it results in him committing suicide.
      • Another interesting thing about the chapter: Alice's complete absence. The fact that she's mysteriously gone would be foreshadowing something bad.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Pizza Steve have some moments in this.
  • Would Hurt a Child: The ending to Andy proves that Pizza Steve can kill children as well. Alice can be this too at the end of Innocence where she killed off Riley.

How well does it match the trope?
