    A Mary Sue most-likely-self-insert character gets a whole bunch of bullshit powers from the Command & Conquer universe, then gets reincarnated in the Game of Thrones universe. Really, this is less “C&C/Game of Thrones crossover” and more “God Mode Sue in Game of Thrones”, given how little presence C&C actually has in this story.

    Was planning on snarking this myself, but I’ll probably never have time to finish this given how busy I am with uni right now. So I’m putting it up for anyone to take a shot at. (In the unlikely event that nobody riffs this in the next 2~3 years, I’ll probably get off my lazy ass, actually watch Arpeggio of Blue Steel, and finish what I started)

    Anyway, the badfic: canon defilement (the Soviet Union taking orders from FutureTech, who are their mortal enemies in the game), childish characters (there’s a scene where it’s literally just the three main characters yelling “Fuck you!” at each other), ridiculous lack of common sense (a Japanese warship named “the Yakuza”, which makes about as much sense as an US Navy ship named “USS Mafia”), horrible lack of even the most basic of naval knowledge (C&C style weapons design aside, the author couldn’t even get the IJN battleship’s naming scheme straight).

    So yeah, a treasure trove right here.

    Pretty much a one-sided curbstomp of evil!ponies by the humans…Except the author, in a misguided attempt to make the story seem like it’s not complete human wank (it is), threw in some absolutely ridiculous defeats for the human side, like airships somehow blasting supersonic fighters out of the skies with cannons.

    Pretty much every bad MLP fanfic cliche all rolled into one: “badass”, TRAJIK protagonist with a bunch of guns, ponies being hostile to him for no good reason, Gary Stu, Wish Fulfillment, and worst of all, having hundreds of upvotes despite all that.
