Critiqued by Crazy Minh and Major Wade

[And now, a riff that Crazy Minh sent me more than a month ago. Sorry about that. I’ve also taken the liberty of adding a few insights about the X-Men half of the crossover, mostly identifying characters the author doesn’t describe very well and providing wiki links for curious patrons. – Bats]

Hello, dear patrons, and a very Merry Christmas to you all! Welcome to the first break in the monotony that is EclipsePheniox’s ‘Trapped in 40k’. I’m your guest riffer, Crazy Minh, and over there at the tactical console is our special guest, Major Wade!

Sir…do we really have to do this?

Oh no, we do. Now, as I’ve already made clear in my riff of ‘Battlestar Highschoolia’, I am a massive BSG fan. In my humble opinion, Battlestar Galactica (2003) is the best military science-fiction TV show of the early 2000’s. In terms of broader science-fiction greats of the era, it ranks up there with Firefly, Star Trek: Enterprise, and Stargate: Atlantis. It is- for either the better or worse- the progenitor of the recent tsunami of dark, gritty science-fiction television programs that have taken over the genre. But unlike some shows (*cough*Discovery*cough*), it doesn’t take the road into edgelord territory. Well…for the most part, at least. The show was- and still is- extremely popular. I’d highly recommend watching it if you already haven’t. If you have watched it, watch it again!

With that popularity comes the obligatory fanfiction. With that fanfiction comes the bizarre crossovers. Thus, we have ‘Battlestar Prometheus’, a crossover with X-Men, which is 90% blatant plot-regurgitation, and 10% plain wrong. Let us begin:

2496: The Shadow Warriors – Chapter 30

Critiqued by BatJamags (GoodJamags), Kane, and Malcolm

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your guest host, BatJamags, and this is another chapter of The Shadow Warriors! Last time, we had a villain team-up of that Gallagher guy who showed up at the end of Sam Motherfuckin’ Jackson’s story arc, that Leonae nutjob who got his arms brutally exploded, yet another “Iron Man but with GUNS and SWORDS and SKULLS” character, someone who I think was supposed to be Jean White, a new guy in a white cloak who’s apparently Sovereign’s evil twin or something (Maybe I’ll call him Harbinger), and Hush.

Let’s get started, shall we?

Kane: I’d rather not, but it seems we’ve little choice in the matter.

GAH! Every time. Oh, and who’s Tall, Dark, and Bald there behind you?

*Behind Kane stands a large, muscular (and bald) man in black sleeveless robes and a mask that covers the lower half of his face. He looks rather bewildered.*

?: Wha- Kane. Why have you brought me here?! Is this another one of your tricks?

Kane: Calm yourself, Malcolm. You’ll give yourself another ulcer. Then we’ll have to get Constantine to heal you, and no one wants that.

*Malcolm attempts to punch Kane, who actually recoils slightly before sidestepping out of the way*

Kane: *Looking at GoodJamags* I’ve been mentioning my old adventuring party, so I thought I’d bring one along. Malcolm here is a monk with… anger management issues.

[Meta note: Kane and Malcolm (and the other five, Constantine, Lady Adelaide, Revenore, Erik, and Ylva) are designed as characters for a fic based on Dungeons & Dragons that may or may not materialize at some point in the future, but I might also play as them at some point in the actual game. However, they’re both characters I created.]

Malcolm: Do not mock me, sorcerer!

Kane: We’ve been over this. I am a Warlock, and you will remember this. As I was saying, Malcolm was exiled from his monastery for his inability to control his emotions. I, along with some other associates of mine, helped him train to go back and kill every monk in that monastery. It was one of our finest moments. I thought that as one of the edgiest members of our group, he’d have a unique perspective on this tale.

Is he up to speed?

Kane: Naturally. I always plan ahead.

Bet he hasn’t seen this chapter’s chapterly news briefing!

As usual, credit to Anne for this.

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your guest host, BatJamags, and today we’re tackling another chapter of The Shadow Warriors. Fun stuff. But first, your chapterly news briefing:

Opener

As usual, credit to Anne for this.

Chapter 29: Pure Evil

Oh, so this chapter is about Edgelord?

But then again, aren’t they all?

Authors Note: Okay people, I got a lot of ideas from some new reviews and some new characters both villains and heroes this story arc goes out to Light Seeker 001. I made a few changes but the plot is still the same, I got big plans for the climax of Slade which hopefully will be out by Christmas. Also, later I’m gonna put up all the dossiers of the Shadow Warriors and the Villains on a separate story later tonight so enjoy!

No.

No no no.

No no no no no no no no.

NOT MORE EDGELORDS! PLEASE! ANYTHING BUT THAT! HELP! HELP! LET ME OUT OF HERE! I’VE GOT TO-

*Tranquilized*

Kane: It seems I’ll have to step in earlier than expected.

Critiqued by BatJamags (GoodJamags)

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your guest host, BatJamags, and I’m back with the second half of this really long chapter of The Shadow Warriors! When we last left off, the Dork Patrol was storming the McEvil Alliance’s headquarters and whining about how Jean Grey needed his revenge.

Phoenix was storming through the holding area of the labs, passing many kidnapped children and teenagers along the way. He grimaced at the fact that Cole was stealing kids off the streets as they were nothing no one would miss.

So… they were something someone would miss.

Double negatives!

As he walked he stopped when he saw a small child no more than five years old. The two made eye contact as Phoenix saw his past and his pain in his eyes.

*Fails to dodge and gets cut by all that edge*

Critiqued by BatJamags (GoodJamags)

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your guest host, BatJamags, and I’m back with yet another less-than-thrilling chapter of The Shadow Warriors. Last time, Jean Grey angsted about his backstory (in which Dami(a/e)n Cole, sometimes known as Cole Damien but not, to date, as Cole Damian, twirled his moustache aggressively and Baby Jean Grey failed to SAVE MARTHA), Edgelord ESCAPED THROUGH A PLOT PORTAL TO AVOID BEING SOUNDLY DEFEATED BY THE REAL HEROES, and then the two of them stole the Batmobile for some bizarre reason.

Make sense? No? Who cares? We’re doing the next chapter!

Crap, it’s LONG. This’ll probably be a two-parter, so let’s get your chapterly news briefing out of the way now.

Critiqued by BatJamags (GoodJamags and BadJamags)

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your guest host, BatJamags…

BadJamags: … and I’ve been dragged into riffing this piece of shit again because fuckin’ GJ’s turned it into a Thing™ where I have to join in on the first chapter of every five-chapter chunk and then Kane does the last one.

And Another Thing

So, last time, the pointless subplot of Edgelord and Miranda Strawson getting turned into superfurries was abruptly, unfunnily, and unceremoniously resolved. Onward!

BadJamags: Got turned into what?

I’m legitimately not sure how else to describe it. The fic calls them “splicers.” Anyway, first, your chapterly news briefing:

As usual, credit to Anne for this.
