Does Code Geass count?

Wait, even better, Naruto. Ninja society ius very bleakj, children are tools that can be killed, and totalitarian utilitarianism is the norm. Then comes Naruto who gains everyone's trut and friendship and restores peace.

Yeah, but it's still kind of a mystical setting. I'm talking magical Thoreau in the Foundation here.

I haven't read it, but I'm already feeling Hype Backlash because, you know, logic and magic should never ever ever mix.
Indeed, and they don't. rational!Harry realizes about halfway through Chapter 14 that the universe cannot possibly work logically.

Not normally one for Fanfic or Harry Potter, but now reading this due to laughing out loud at some of the extracts posted here.

Raw Power, What have you done?

I have gone drunk with the power of the Bayesian Conspiracy!

How often does it update anyway?

New chapter's out.

holy crap, the omake chapter.

"Oh, dear. This has never happened before..."

What?

"I've had to tell students before that they were mothers - it would break your heart to know what I saw in their minds - but this is the first time I've ever had to tell someone they were a father."

WHAT?

"Draco Malfoy is carrying your baby."

WHAAAAAAAT?

"To repeat: Draco Malfoy is carrying your baby."

But we're only eleven -

"Actually, Draco is secretly thirteen years old."

B-b-but men can't get pregnant -

"And a girl under those clothes."

BUT WE'VE NEVER HAD SEX, YOU IDIOT!

"SHE OBLIVIATED YOU AFTER THE RAPE, MORON!"

Harry Potter fainted. His unconscious body fell off the stool with a dull thud.

"RAVENCLAW!" called out the Hat from where it lay on top of his head. That had been even funnier than its first idea.

I can't believe I never knew about this before now. This is the best thing.

I will never fail to be surprised that Yudkowsky writes fan fiction.

I think he does it in part because he enjoys deliberately abusing people's preconceptions.

...eventually, we will reach a maximum entropy state where nobody has their own socks or underwear, or knows who to ask to get them back.

Harry, magic does not WORK that way!

EDIT: HOLY SHIT THIS IS SUCH A WHAM EPISODE!!!! And Yudkowsky has managed to show Death Eaters as sympathetic. Read that again. Yeah, I can't believe it either.

This is only slightly less excessive and needless then the "XKCD sucks" blog.

Jun 6th 2010 at 9:00:43 PM

I don't know. I mean XKDC Sucks was excessive, but xkdc really did have a bad slump recently. I think it's gotten better, but that's just my taste.

Reading the blog I got the who Completely Missing the Point in everything to the point of exasperation, but the general point that MOR is an Author Tract is spot on even if, you know, still missing the point.

I think we can both agree that, "People like art that I hate! Wahhh!" is a terrible premise for anything.
