THOUGHTS: trollfics (“and the pants were dead.”)
Gordon Freeman said “its time to end this ones and for all!” and punched the final boss in the face and the final boss fell. John Freeman said “thanks i could help, bro” and Gordon Freeman said “you should come here earlier next time” and they laughed.
I’m not going to lie; I hate fanfiction. The concept itself is terrific, but the actual result… not pretty, thanks to the downright terrible “writers” who pen said fanfiction. I recognize three types of fanfic: “meh”, “crimes against humanity”, and “trollfic”. I haven’t actually read a fanfic that I thought was high-quality enough to be a legit book (although I don’t mind a decent crackfic here and there), as “quality fanfiction” is practically an oxymoron.
However, fanfiction can be good for one thing… you guessed it! LULZ.
Okay, so most fanfics aren’t funny. They’re more like “oh-god-the-English-language-has-been-mutilated-I-think-my-eyeballs-are-bleeding” bad. BUT. Internet shenanigans to the rescue!! Trollfics are a gold mine. Whether they’re actually trollfics or not… the terrible writing is funny to read, rather than nauseating and/or painful. It’s funny because it’s SO WRONG. If you suck at spelling/write terrible fanfiction yourself, you won’t enjoy trollfics. |D
And after seeing this video, I became OBSESSED.
My second favorite is DIGIMON SAVEZ THE WROLD!!1111, penned by literary genius Peter Chimaera. He masterfully crafts trollfics for many series, but I’m personally fond of his Digimon ones. And why yes, there is also a matching video for this, and well as one for its sequel. ❤
Do you find trollfics funny? Maybe they’re not your cup of tea? Let me know! :’>
