Headscratchers / IT'S MY LIFE!

Go To

  • Caroline was injected with special powers and passed them onto Marrissa, meaning Marrissa was born with them. Yet, when evil Teen Fortress 2 makes a clone of Marrissa, Assirram doesn't have them?
    • Because the needle of special powers alters the bloodstream, not the DNA, and bloodstream is something that passes through generations.
      • That would hold if Marrissa gestated in Caroline's womb, but... she didn't. She was created via artificial insemination (and therefore was likely born to a surrogate mother), which means the only part of Caroline that she inherited was the DNA.
    • On the same topic: it is never once brought up that Chell, being Caroline's daughter as well, also has speshul powers. If anything, evidence suggests the contrary, as eating zombee taters made Chell into a zombie, despite one of Marrissa's powers being the prevention of such a thing.
  • J and K go back in time to recruit Teen Fortress 2 in THE MARRISSA GAMES, but they're already in "the past" and and they end up going point in time set after TEEN FORTRESS 2. Its a pretty huge Timey-Wimey Ball.
    • Not a question, but for explanation, I don't think J and K actually travelled in time when Abraham Lincoln told them to get Teen Fortress 2, since we know he was the president when they graduated from Portal High School.
      • But they were in the time streem and everything.
  • How precisely did the wave that brought all the good guys back to life work at the end of THE MARRISSA GAMES, despite Marissa ordinarily not being able to resurrect people, even with her Mary Sue powers?
    • Wheatly/Harry's Marty Stu powers, of course.
      • Wait a minute... one of the fundamental rules of Harry Potter magic is also that no one can truly resurrect people; only their imperfect shadows can exist.
      • That's a great point, but you are overlooking an even greater one: one of the fundamental roles of MarrissaTheWriter magic is that the protagonists will always benefit, and a Downer Ending in which everyone but Marrissa and Wheatly is dead (including their infant daughter) doesn't make that much sense.

How well does it match the trope?
