Since a lot of stuff with MarissaTheWriter has changed over the years, I'll be working on a complete rewrite of all the pages related to her, including this page, Sue Mary, Invader Zim Born Again Christian, ITSMYLIFE Expanded Universe, Marrissa The Writer Complete Anthology and all the character sheets.

I think it doesn't need to be said, but please don't add any tropes from Invader Zim: Born Again Christian to this page. Marrissa herself said it was a separate continuity.

Suggestion: Rename this page to "MarrissaTheWriter" and have it talk about the author rather than the fan fics. (Of course that would not change most of the content, it just begins with "the author MarrissaTheWriter who has written two fan fics" rather than "a fan fiction saga ITS MY LIFE! consisting of two fan fics".)


I feel that talking about a fan fic of the same name as the page is rather confusing and stupid (take my example again: we're talking about "a fan fiction saga ITS MY LIFE! consisting of two fan fics: ITS MY LIFE! and TEEN FORTRESS 2" and here, two "ITS MY LIFE!"s).

Creator pages are less about the works and more about the creators themselves.

And? MarrissaTheWriter hasn't written any other stories and none of her identities outside of FF.Net are known, so the only judgement of her we have is ITS MY LIFE! and TEEN FORTRESS 2.

But this page is about the works. The entire point would be changed, and we want the page to be about the fics, not the creator (and what little we know about her — which only means there would be little point to having such a page, since there would be almost nothing on it).

To clarify what I mean: we would have to remove the entire trope list, or the vast majority of it, since the tropes pertain to the works rather than the author. We would also probably have to remove the links to MSTings and dramatic readings, since, again, they are specifically about the fics.

(Issue deprecated when it was confirmed that MarrissaTheWriter and Sue Mary are the same person)

Umm...why are all the colons getting changed to dashes? Colons are by far the more widely accepted system on the wiki.

Sorry. I was trying to be consistent. The page was using more dashes than colons already (not my doing).

So, I'm the person who wrote the MST that's linked to on this page, and I just discovered both this page and that my MSTs are on it.

I just want to say: this has made my day, my week, and possibly my entire month.

And I just discovered that you are a troper.


Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
