Total Drama Letterredo is a For Want of a Nail Peggy Sue Total Drama fanfic by Darkshockbro, and details Kim's revisiting of the Total Drama season she lost...

After a massive Humiliation Conga that ended with her going to juvie, Kim leads a miserable life in juvenile prison, growing bitter at her fate and her downfall on the show. However, as she is about to have her lunch, a strange old man appears who goes by the name of Father Time before her and offers her a second chance to go back and redo the season and possibly prevent her downfall from ever happening. Can Kim manage to make sure the same mistakes don't transpire twice in a row, or will she be doomed to her fate in prison a second time?


You can read the story on FF.Net.

This fanfic contains the following tropes:

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Nina to Donny. Understandable, considering what kind of character Nina is classified as.
  • The Alcoholic: Gordon, just like in the original.
  • All Men Are Perverts: Gordon and Bishop, true to form. Kim manages to exploit this trope for all its worth by getting Gordon to chase Sasha down and grab her ass right in front of her whole team! This ends up cementing his position as the first boot once again.
  • And I'm the Queen of Sheba: Jill often uses this as a retort, most notably when Max states that he has 650 friends on Facebook. Jill's response?
    Jill: "Uh-huh. And I'm wearing black, Max."
  • Big Good: Father Time, who is responsible for giving Kim her second chance in the first place, in addition to possible improvements for the lives of the other contestants.
  • Advertisement:
  • Berserk Button: Donny's height. Again.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Alice and Bishop.
  • Brainy Brunette: Eddie.
  • Butt-Monkey: Paul is the consistent target of Quarla's abuse.
  • Buxom Is Better: Gordon, Bishop, and even Kim herself agree that large chests are indeed all that. Perhaps even Eddie too, if his reactions to Kim are any indication.
  • Catchphrase: "Peas and Carrots" for Fripp. Repeat ad nauseum.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Paul carries a ton of cleaning supplies with him at all times. This is naturally lampshaded by the Confessional Spirit.
  • Country Matters: Kim uses the word in her first confessional rant.
  • Crying Wolf: Kim's fake scream when she supposedly gets stuck in the brush so that she could lure Gordon and Bishop to the egg quicker. This also has the ulterior motive of giving her the opportunity to spy on Eddie and Sasha after the fact.
  • Advertisement:
  • Deadpan Snarker: Lankston's probably the biggest one on the roster. Both Kim and Eddie also get in on some snarking action, as well as Ulric.
  • Deep Sleep: Kim mentions that she gets tired easily at night and her body starts to shut down more easily than most other people.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Gordon gets hit by this towards the end of Chapter 4, courtesy of Kim.
  • The Dreaded: Kasimar.
  • Dumb Blonde: Fripp still sticks to this trope like white on rice. Kim's an aversion however.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: Another trope that Kim loves to exploit. She's already got Gordon snookered at least until he got booted, she has Bishop wrapped around her finger and most likely has Eddie working for her now due to the fact that they all think she's quite attractive.
  • Femme Fatale: Take a wild guess.
  • Gamer Girl: Sasha, like before.
  • Groin Attack: Kasimar's on the receiving end of this from Rheneas' slingshot. he completely deserves it.
  • The Generic Guy: Ulric.
  • Kissed Keepsake: Bishop gets one of these from Kim for saving her from a brush that she wasn't actually stuck in. As is typical of the trope, he proclaims that he won't wash that cheek for a long time.
  • Lemony Narrator: The Confessional Spirit which is always seen before every confessional always has some kind of snappy comment related to the situation in some manner.
  • Literal-Minded: Cherry seems to believe that Vespa scooters were popular in Mexico after Opal immediately shouts "Sombreros!" for no particular reason and explains that it was "for the thrill of the Vespa chase".
    • Zed isn't exactly exempt from this either, thanks to him being on a farm for most of his life.
  • Little Miss Snarker: Jill, who's much snarkier here than in Letterama.
  • Marshmallow Hell: Kim plays this for all its worth with Eddie during Chapter 8.
  • Moral Dissonance: Averted, if Raven scolding Gary for grabbing her ass - something that Kasimar did (and of whom Gary was the biggest critic) - is of any indication.
    • Another aversion happens towards the end of Chapter 5. The immorality of the truth serum's usage and the fear challenge as a whole is pointed out multiple times as being wrong. The end result is that Spider and Quana feel incredibly guilty for what had transpired, and publically admit they're sorry after they admit that the actual challenge was based around making flying machines. Heck, even Kim's manipulative actions towards Lavender in an attempt to guilt-trip her weren't entirely unfounded, and Kim even points this out in the confessional!
  • Ms. Fanservice: Kim, just as in the original.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: For Kim, seeing as how she's explicitly told she's getting another chance.
  • The Nicknamer: Rheneas, if him calling Kasimar 'Kazzy' is any indication.
  • Jerkass: Quarla and Kasimar clearly haven't changed one bit in this version of the story.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Kim, during one of her several Confessional rants.
  • Nice Guy: Eddie. This trait is amplified here more than in the original Total Drama Letterz 2.
  • Noodle Incident: According to Spider and Quana in Chapter 3, Vinnie (a contestant from the first Letterz) also took part in an Easter Egg Hunt, which ended in disaster. The details of said egg hunt aren't disclosed.
  • Not a Morning Person: Considering Kim says she'll snap if someone wakes her up early, it would be wise to let her sleep.
  • Odd Friendship: Between Kim and Tabitha, probably the last people anyone expected to be friends with one another.
  • Only Sane Man: Eddie, again. Along with the Nice Guy trope above, this trait is amplified.
  • The Pig-Pen: Nina, ye gods. In fact, this is the entire reason that she becomes the second boot of the game.
  • Plucky Girl: Sasha, Winnie and VayVay.
  • Pun-Based Title: The Confessional Spirit drops one at the end of Chapter 4, called "Ineibri-out-ed", most likely a pun referring to Gordon's elimination.
  • Pyromaniac: Rheneas is a rare heroic example, true to form, who is a cross between a Type III and Type IV.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: Gordon was built up to be much more important to the overall story than he was in Letterama as a potential longtime ally of Kim's... only to become the first boot again.
  • Sickening Sweethearts: Spider and Quana, at times. Kim agrees.
  • Signature Laugh: Kasimar has his typical throaty "haw haw haw haw" laugh. Anyone who's read the original Letterama will be able to single him out as the identity of the mysterious cloaked figure who appears before Quarla in Chapter 6 based on his laugh alone.
  • Snarky Inanimate Object: The Confessional Spirit. Not so much an "object" as it is incredibly snarky text that comes before any and all confessionals.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Helen in the toy making challenge, which ultimately lead to her elimination.
    • Her decision to make a featureless beige ball that couldn't bounce at all was a pretty bone-headed move, especially since the challenge was to make a toy that was fun, interesting and original... not a single criteria that the ball came even remotely close to matching.
    • Quarla and Ulric's reaction to the bounceless ball. No doubt that they played a big part in the decision to vote Helen off.
    • the bounceless ball got the lowest possible score and cost Helen's team the challenge, resulting in her being the third member of the cast voted off the island. Lesson learned, folks: if you're going to make a toy, don't make it featureless, boring and completely underwhelming.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: Fripp is somehow even dumber here than he ever was in Letterama.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Ulric seems a lot testier and more critical of others here than he was in Letterama.
  • Villain Protagonist: Kim's the star of the story this time around.
  • Vomit Discretion Shot: No less than five from Donny thanks to Nina in Chapter 4 and Chapter 6.
  • You Bastard!: Ulric uses the "you monster" variant on Gordon in Chapter 4 after the latter tosses a beer can at him, though it's with an extremely sarcastic tone that most other examples.

How well does it match the trope?
