Ode To Bad Fanfiction 2 by shinga Ode To Bad Fanfiction 2 by shinga
Ok, so I had to do another one... who knows, maybe I'll make a whole series of these artistic cop-outs!

Anyway, we ALL know how bad Harry Potter fan fics... hell, FANS... can be. Don't get me wrong, I love the books, and I've written my share of fanfiction(though I always try to avoid to stereotypical). Good HP fanfic is hard to come by... but when you find it, its well worth it.

Unfortunately, its the millions of fics that taste of bile that you have to weed through that discourages even the most avid fanfic readers. The horrible Mary-Sues have taken the HP fandom by storm and won't go away, no matter how many exterminators we try to call. Even the Ghostbusters ran screaming.

The most common Mary Sue problems: Exchange student(from America 99.9% of the time), flawless, beautiful, some object or just natural talent of extreme power, Gryffindor, Harry's(or Sirius', or Remus', or Oliver's...) love interest, and Voldemort's daughter. I'll admit I have a character who's related to the Dark Lord, but not so directly, and it was actually a pretty damn good connection if I say so myself.

So, here then. I'm mocking Mary-Sue, bad crossovers(Hellsing, anyone? Mmm, Alucard...), and the evils of self-insertion(writers, please don't do this... or if you do, make sure you're actually as interesting as you insist you are). Also, the stereotypical Clueless!Harry. Even I've written him once or twice.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the 1337 speak! Ah, teh evilz.

You, my dear Alucard, are a hero. The truth has been made very clear today.

You deserve a hug! APH Prussia tackle hug

Not to mention the absolutely worthless Hellsing fics. And the ones that never update. and the ones with reeeally long auther notes. or the ones with author not chapters. or the ones that are really good, and then they go and do something so stupid that you're like "why the HELL would ANYONE do that!!" Oh well. Hellsing ftw.

HP + Alucard + your art = EPIC!

"good job Alucard" she said to her kawaii waifu "my anti-sue plan is complete. Now you and I, Darkness Hellcharity Murder Monroe, can be super vampires with similar powers and totally, date. i sure hope the fact that I'm also in love with everyone in the Escariot foundation doesn't come in conflict with this" that's how this should have ended.
BuffaloBorgine Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2012
LOL! Alucard always appears in this situation!

HAHA! This was so funny! Actually it made me laugh even more because I *do* have a scar in the middle of my forehead, but it's just straight and, unfortunately, it's not from my defeat of a dark lord. It's from sledding into a wooden picnic table one winter!!! XD

I'd imagine that since Hogwarts is a school for British Wizards and Witches then there's probably a few schools in America for the kids there. I hate when American fanfic writers try to insert American characters into the British Hogwarts. If you can't right a British character then you shouldn't write a story that takes place in Britian!

This just bugs me so much!

Whats your opinion on the Goth-Sues!? The polar opposite to lady perfect Mary-Sue?
transparent-soul Featured By Owner May 12, 2012
I'm just cringing mentally at the thought of Mary Sues.

and this is why i just stick to couples that do NOT include OCs unless i am reaaaaalllllly bored, and need my brain to be sludgified for a while. (especially after precalculus)

My friend emailed me this because I love Harry Potter fanfiction, but she hates fanfiction in general. I still found this really funny, 'cause I've come across examples of it more than I dare to mention. :lmao:

Well, actually, maybe you do. Here's a fanfiction that you MUST read with the youtube read along.
Good luck.

The only time I do fic insertions or OCs is when I'm not taking a fic or fanart seriously at all and am just having fun. And then I get to hear from all the people who seem to think otherwise. I should probably write a serious fanfiction or do a serious fanart one of these days.

Probably won't ever happen.

But, yes, Mary Sue fics are scary. However, you forgot the #1 thing about bad fanfiction: crappy spelling and grammar. Not to mention never knowing who's talking.
MistressoftheRoses Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2011
It makes me laugh you made her wear pink and be blonde. All the fanfics, no matter what book or show it may be for, the girl has 'vampire pale skin, blue eyes and black hair' and is too 'omg I don't need anyone else cause my past is horrible and I'm fine on my own' crap.

Now I write fics with actual characters in the actual series....Like seras and Alucard.

Is is acceptable to jump into the HP world yourself and stalk Bellatrix? I mean... It's FUN, don't wanna stop. :XD: I have to keep stalking Bellatrx.

(though I do try to keep my fanfiction well written, even if it is just for lulz)

Err, it ok for Remus and Sirius to have love interests so long as they're girls with normal names and who have normal human flaws? Oh and as long as the love isn't the plot of the entire story? ^^;
awesome-McAwesomenes Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2011
Well, I certainly think so! I've written several fanfics with main-charater love interests...As long as their flawed and their is some other element besides their romance, then it works out pretty well.

Phew good, otherwise there goes all my hard work designing characters who actually work with the story :)

I get what you mean. Me and some friends tried a hellsing/hp thing and it was just....weird. The only awesome Harry potter fanfic we made was based off a dream my friend had, where I was Lily, my bff Ally was Snape, and Heather was...somebody, can't remember who. All I know is...we kept making Snape look gay.

Good lord I hate bad fanfiction, especially when they have the random exchange students... Make the mind rape stop!!!

And tha, my friend, is why i hardly make fan characters..and when I do, they are my real life buds..cause those dudes are FAR from mary-sues..and gotta love teh hellsing.
MissLadyGrim Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
The only way I could see you being able to put your OC in a fanfiction story would be if you made them a friend of the main character, or working with them. I hate Mary-Sues. And if you're going to do a cross over, do something that would make sense.
thatSaori Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2010
i believe i crossed a fanfic which futured a pregnant naruto and a love-dovey sasuke once.. it was epic.

in a bad way.

If I ever wrote a HP Fanfic, I'd have freckles, brown hair, green eyes, shy, and I'd be going after Ron. Oooooh yeah xD
sonicspeedx13 Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2010
when i make fan fics (for mostly Sonic the hedgehog) I try to stand near how the characters act and how the story line has been and try to stick to that, try to stay away from all that imposible things lol but meh it never works mostly, but this is awesome and i agree XD
AlexTheFork Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2010
I actually started writing a fanfic where my OC was realted to Voledmort but I thought twice about it. And there are alot of stupid fics where the OC is an exchange student from America. I hate those. And sometimes there realted to Dumbledore in some way.

I consider Alucard himself to be something of a Gary-Stu. The guy has almost no weaknesses(he even states that sun doesn't hurt him, he just hates it), everybody is after him, etc. If they gave him at least the basic vampire weaknesses, he would be a much more likable character.
FuzzyNecromancer Featured By Owner May 2, 2010
I suppose Alucard makes sense, given how many of the Sues are half-vampire.

yay for alabi's to make girls feel like their a fictional character's girlfriend cause they don't actually have one themselves...

I swear to God, i didn't know being Voldy's daughter was a Mary-Sue trait when i made my first OC. Hell, i didn't even know what fanfiction was. But looking back, the things i used to make up, it's headdesk-worthy ^^;

Nowadays, thank God, i've changed my OCs into some more tolerable beings. I still do self-insertion, but hey, it's FANfiction. I bet that there's not a single fanfiction author and/or authoress that hasn't imagined themselves in whatever fandom they might have at least ONCE! :ohnoes:

I write HP fanfiction about muggels that are angry about wizards oppressing them and fight back.And its a gray vs gray vs black morality.
ProjectWicca Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2009
I am very ashamed to admit my first HP fanfic featured a Mary Sue from America. I was twelve at the time and had no clue truly annoying it was. I'm proud to say I never once thought of my character as being Voldemort's daughter but one version she did end up being Harry's lover but I changed that. So glad that story's been abandoned. :doh:
Green-Ruby Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2010
Yeah, after 12 there really isn't an excuse to write such crap.
At least you have the courtesy to admit it instead of shoving it at people to read Like Stephany Myer. Good for you. :iconjellybeanplz:
