Forged Destiny is a bad story, but not a bad fanfic in a usual sense. Let me elaborate.
When a fanfiction is called bad, it means that it is absolutely horrible by the standards of any other media. It means that the story is full of errors, unfinished, immature or several of the above. It means that only people looking for a specific thing, like their favorite pairing or an unusual story concept, would find it worth their time.
Forged Destiny has none of the above-mentioned problems. It contains almost no grammar or spelling errors, the author doesn't show obvious hatred nor favoritism towards any character and it actually looks like a fairly good adventure story for the first two arcs. But the Romantic Plot Tumor, flat characters, annoying characters, informed flaws, inconsistent themes, unsatisfying conclusions and numerous contradictions soon begin to pile up, resulting in a story that is not only unengaging but downright frustrating at times.
The author is clearly talented and puts a lot of effort into his works. A story of that lenght and writing quality could be published as a novel, or even a series of novels. But they would be mediocre novels at best. And with all the characters being vastly different from their original counterparts, there is little reason for RWBY fans to find it particularly endearing. At the end of the day, I would recommend doing something else with your time than reading it.
