Critiqued by TacoMagic and Retired Darth Lord Crunchy

NOTE: Today we’ve got a slasher fic, so consider this fair warning.

Happy Halloween, Patrons!  And what better way to celebrate the climax of the spooptacular season than with a Christmas fic!  A Christmas fic based on Nightmare on Elm Street.  Now, Halloween and Christmas have been demonstrably shown to work together in the right setting, so it’s not doomed right out of the gate.

“You will find that today’s setting, however, is not the correct setting.  Perhaps a Sithmas special would feature a slasher icon, but the more cuddly monkey holiday is unlikely to benefit from a string of murders.”

It’s also not helped by the misspelling of Claus in the title.

But the thing that really brings the suck in this fic is how overwrought the prose is.  Everyone get your purple shades out, it’s about to get all adjectivy up in this bitch!

Ah, the holiday season. A time for love, peace on earth, good will…not to mention a good slaying.

“I do believe she misspelled ‘sleighing.'”

Given that this is Nightmare on Elm Street, I don’t think she did.

Like everything else, not to be taken seriously.

EVERYTHING else?

“Correct, all things are non-serious matters.”

What about the stuff?

“Stuff is never a laughing matter.”

Fluff

Because when I think about a child murderer who’s burned alive by an angry mob who comes back as a malignant spirit that can kill people in their dreams, I think fluff!

“Well, I certainly think of fluff.”

Dude, you thought Texas Chainsaw Massacre was fluffy.

“You know what? It’s kinda sad. We’ve got pretty much the whole Spooptacular behind us now, and we have not seen one hyper-realistic hair of any of our old favorites- no Eyeless Jack, no Slenderman, no Demonic the Hedgehog, not even one measly little ol’ Jeff clone!”
You know what? You’re absolutely right. It’s been neat going through the ‘theory’ pastas and the ‘experiment’ pastas and whatever the fuck The God Theory was supposed to be, but when I think of creepypastas I think of possessed video games and pasty-faced supernatural entities in oddly contemporary attire. A lot of that got relocated to the Trollpasta Wiki when Creepypasta did its big ‘quality’ purge, and then when the Trollpasta Wiki got shut down two months ago due to Wikia’s admins being a bunch of humorless clickbat-mongers we actually lost huge amounts of it in favor of the bland, directionless drivel like Binary DNA and Arachnophobia that seems to currently be in vogue back on the main sites.
Fortunately, however, there is still fanfiction of the classic creepypasta. Including poetry. ~880 words of poetry.
“Yay.”

A little game for the reader: By the end of the riff, guess which YouTube channel I’ve been watching a lot of recently.

Also, when I say “marathon,” I mean it. This is long, but I was having way too much fun to cut it down. Just thought I’d let you know ahead of time. Seriously, though, it’s about three times as long as my normal riffs.

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I’m back.

There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to Man. It is a dimension as vast as the author’s note to My Inner Life, and as timesquiggly as My Immortal. It is the middle ground between light and Edgelord, between thermal radiation and BLUE; and it lies between the pit of a riffer’s fears and the summit of his anger. This is the dimension of bad horror oneshots. It is an area which we call… the Badfic Zone.

Respectfully submitted for your derision: A cavalcade of spooky, scary, and quite possibly skeletal oneshots from a wide selection of horror films!

2176: FNG – Chapter Two, Part Three (But it’s actually Chapter One, Part Three)

Title: FNG
Author: Richie23
Media: Video Game
Topic: Rainbow Six: Siege
Genre: Suspense/Adventure
URL: Chapter One
Critiqued by SC and Operative SC

Hello, and welcome back to “FNG,” by Richie23! I’m your host, SC, joined by myself, and last time, our two idiots got recruited into Rainbow and met each other in person, and for some reason, they really didn’t like each other. Also, Rainbow got a look at their files, and for reasons beyond my comprehension, the response was not, “oh fucking great, we picked up a pair of jackasses.”

Also, this riff took longer to write up because I was busy slaying vampires, and prior to that, got yoinked into Sakai’s damn Creepypasta riff against my will.

*Various pained-sounding spoopy noises*

You know, pasta authors, it really says something when I can kick the crap out of your monsters.

2175: Skyrim High School Halloween Special – Oneshot

Spooky tidings, dear Patrons!

I’ve recently been playing a lot of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – and getting killed by a lot by that damned frost troll near High Hrothgar, curse its many eyes – which made me think to myself; “You know what would be fun to riff? A Skyrim trollfic!”

And it is Halloween-themed, which works out well all around.

I’m fairly certain that this is a trollfic; the author has a whole collection of “high school” fics and every one I skimmed through was very similar to this one. Let’s take a look at the summary, which is a good way to judge the tone of a fic.

This is the Halloween special of skyrim high.

:glances at title:

You don’t say?

It is set during after Skyrim high. This is just a fun sotry about Halloween, i hope you enjoy it.

Ah. It’s a fic set both during and after an earlier fic written by the same author, making it doubly removed from the source materials.

Warning: do not read before youve read my other sotry, Skyrim High, or else you will reed spolers

I have read part of the first Skyrim High and it is only notable for the number if times “Totes” and “totally” are used. It is very much the written equivalent of Valley Girl speak.

Now, on the the fic!

Hello, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome back for more Scott Pilgrim X Mass Effect. I’m your host Herr Wozzeck, and today…

*sigh*

Can we just get this over with? I have the horrible feeling we’re just stalling for time at this point, and I think we really need to get this over with as soon as possible. Especially given the mass stupidity we can expect out of this fic at this juncture.

Yeah? Alright.

2173: Worlds collide (Haloween Special) – Oneshot

Critiqued by TacoMagic and Retired Darth Lord Crunchy

Heyo, patrons!  Welcome to another Haloween special!

“I suspect you are doing this on purpose.”

You would be correct.  This week we’ll be tackling a Pokémon fic based on, best as I can tell, the game and not the Anime series.  It’s really not clear as it seems the author may have borrowed from both sources; however, since we’ve already covered some of this canon previously in the Library, and the canon absolutely doesn’t matter for this fic, no info dump for you!  That said, if you’re not familiar with the characters, I’ll toss up some reference links as they show up, which will mostly be in the summary.

“Is this that thing with all those odious little creatures.”

Yup!  Let’s take a peek at that summary right now.

A short one-shot following Dawn and Lucas in the distorted dimension, being pursued by the terrifying Giratina.

As I mentioned, most of the characters are listed in the summary.  This fic is in the fourth generation of Pokémon and features Dawn and Lucas, who serve as the player avatars in those games.  Giratina is the primary legendary Pokémon of the fourth generation and is one of the three Pokémon responsible for managing the universe.  Shortly after it was created, Giratina was banished to the Distortion World because it’s a violent little asshole.

Will they survive the harsh conditions?

Snow on Halloween?  I forgot how much the weather sucks in the Distortion World.

More importantly, will their Pokemon survive?

In all fairness, the Pokemon generally have more personality than any of the characters in both the game and Anime, so I’ll let it slide that their survival is considered the more important thing here.

“They do not die.”

Well, they don’t die on screen, anyway.

Rated T for SPOOP!

*Crunchy rubs his forehead*

“You cannot fathom my delight at this moment.  You may as well get it out of your system.”

“I deeply despise whomever created that video.”
