Literature / A Girl Who Brought Down the World

Go To

Christine (formerly Christian) Weston Chandler, creator of the Webcomic Sonichu, has a significant hatedom, and you'll rarely meet somebody who is trying to help her or change her behavior. One of those rare people is Vivian Gee, who was trying to help Chris for a very long time... before giving up. note  One of her attempts to make her realize how bad and harmful his behavior is was writing a micro-novel and giving it to him. A Girl Who Brought Down the World was that novel.


The story focuses on Kid and her older sister, Vivian, as well as other people living in a world ruled by President Christopher Winnfield Vega. Almost all the cast is made from poorly-masked copies of people who somehow get in a conflict with Chris.

You can read it on the author's DeviantArt account. Compare with Asperchu as takes on Chris-Chan, and Downfall as sympathetic portrayals of universally reviled figures.

Please remember this is a page only about said webnovel. Anything involving CWC and horrible things she did, that isn't necessary to understand context behind story's plot points, doesn't belong here and will be deleted.


This story provides examples of:

  • Almighty Janitor: Hendrix is The Man Behind the Man to Chris.
  • Ancient Conspiracy: A not-exactly-ancient conspiracy made by China — they made the United States weak using inside agents, and then made Chris president to watch how he destroys the world.
  • Bad Santa: Vivi tells Kid that Christopher is one because she thinks she's too young to know the truth.
  • Big Bad: Christopher Winnfield Vega, president of America. Until Hendrix is revealed.
  • Bottomless Magazines: Lampshaded with the EZ Gun.
    "My god, that gun is amazing!" exclaims the principal, "You didn't even have to reload!"
    "It's just that easy," boasts Mays.
  • The Caligula: Christopher nukes entire countries for trivial reasons.
  • Captain Ersatz: As the story involves multiple Ersatzes of people who somehow wronged Chris-chan, we'll just list the most important ones with one-sentence descriptions, for context's sale.
    • Christopher Winnfield Vega — Christine Weston Chandler, creator of Sonichu.
    • Melanie — Megan Schroeder, a close friend of Chris before his actions drove her away.
    • Advertisement:
    • Unnamed magician — Wes Iseli, a man Chris was jealous of a long time ago.
    • Eva G. Warren — Mary Lee Walsh, an employee at Chris' college whom he believed was conspiring against him.
    • Jones Brimley — Cole Smithy, Christine's half-brother.
    • Clyde — Clyde Cash, who attempted to help Chris before becoming his most active troll.
    • Hendrix — trolls' Hive Mind.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Kid has shades of it. Of course, she's just...well, a kid.
    • And Vega, who makes his characters part of his cabinet... and in a scene are revealed to be merely drawings.
  • Cosmic Retcon: After Chris destroyed the world, God remade the timeline to one where he never rises to power and ends up dying in a mental institution.
  • Deconstruction: Of Sonichu. Just like Christine's comics, it happens in a world where she can do everything, but mercilessly shows how bad it would be.
  • Digital Piracy Is Evil: Why Vega nuked Taiwan.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Christopher nuked Taiwan for supporting piracy, South Korea for supporting Taiwan, and Poland for stealing jobs from Britain. He tried to nuke Brazil after their president called him on his behavior, but nuked Canada instead.
  • The Dog Was the Mastermind: The janitor turns out to be manipulating Chris for his own ends.
  • Dying Alone: Chris in the rewritten timeline.
  • For the Evulz: Hendrix and his organization's main motivation.
  • Happily Married: Vivian and Clyde in the rewritten timeline. This is a little disturbing when you realize that their "public" counterparts are cousins, and that both are in Real Life separate characters played by the same troll.
  • Have I Mentioned I Am Heterosexual Today?: Christopher says this so much it might make one think he’s Armoured Closet Gay.
  • Heteronormative Crusader: Cristopher actively tries to brainwash people into being straight. This involves a ritual wherein two opposite-sex children are put into a flooding room that will only stop when the male deposits semen into a cup.
  • Hurricane of Euphemisms: Lampshaded.
    "You just do it for the hanky-panky, the horizontal tango, hitting the hay, the wango tango, the bonus round of love, rocking the room, tasting the heavens, you know."
    "Jesus, Christopher. You really have no experience at all with any type of relationship with any woman, do you? I mean, no one uses those euphemisms, I haven’t even heard of half of those."
  • Jerkass God: God himself, who created Christopher as a drunken joke. Even so, it was nice of him to rewrite the timeline so none of this ever happened.
  • Knight Templar: Vega crusades against gays, blacks, “terrorists”, and other “enemies to the country.”
  • Logic Bomb: When Chris is trying to have sex with Vivian, she agrees, but only if it will be a threesome with another man. This gets the deeply homophobic Vega so confused, he leaves the room.
  • Lonely Funeral: Chris's, in the rewritten timeline. Nobody attends it.
  • Man Behind the Man: Hendrix, Vega’s janitor.
  • Noodle Incident: If you don't know much about Chris, Melanie's reason for leaving Vega counts as this.
  • Poisonous Friend: Hendrix, to Christopher.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Chris hates gays, blacks, Jews, Muslims... the whole package.
  • Power Fantasy: During a fight between Chris and the magician, the former starts imagining how he overthrows the latter and expects him to accept his imagination as reality.
  • President Evil: Chris uses his power to combat gayness and bomb other countries.
  • Psychopathic Man Child: Christopher is short-tempered, doesn't care about the feelings of others, has very poor impulse control, has a very juvenile view of love and romance, and his “cabinet” consists of drawings he made.
  • Reset Button: God, after laughing a bit at all the mayhem, decides to press it and Set Right What Once Went Wrong.
  • Shout-Out: The man character's name, Christopher Winnfield Vega, is based on character names Jules Winnfield and Vincent Vega.
  • Take That!: Trolls are shown as a bunch of crazy, heartless psychopaths who want to watch the world burning at the hands of Chris and laugh.
    • Also averted: Chris's portrayal, while negative, is not malevolent... but rather a genuine effort to show her where she's wrong.
  • Troll Fic: Averted; Vivian didn't write it to piss Chris-chan off, but with the intention of helping her become a better person.
  • You Are What You Hate: In addition to this story, Vivian's responsible for the Sonichu audio books (yes, they do exist). Vivian's YouTube and DeviantArt pages are frighteningly obsessive shrines devoted to the art and antics of Christine Weston Chandler, suggesting that Vivian may have a lot more in common with Chris than she'd like to admit.
    • It's pretty safe to say that Vivian Gee was a bit of a Stalker with a Crush towards Chris. Which is highly ironic, since she herself is infamous for her stalker-ish tendencies.
  • World Half Empty: This is a world where a man like Vega can become the president...and everything's ruled by internet trolls. Even God admitted this world was His failure.
