Realm of the New God riff #1-How to start an untypical typical fanfic

I apologize if this confuses some of you. See, I did do the first chapter, but my initial style, namely just describing stuff on a skim basis while not showing anything from the original fanfic, confused some people, and it’s partially my fault. I thought that I’d be able to give people a viable picture of what the fanfic was like without having to show it. Hopefully, this will not only serve as a better picture riff of what’s going on, but also allow me to improve my riffing style.

Are you ready to explore the world of Fire Emblem fanfiction? There are boundless possibilities for you to explore, such as potential AU’s, off-screen relationships between characters, and even potential ways you imagine how the games went. All of those options are indicative of a surprising amount of creativity…by following the crowd and doing what everyone else is doing.

Chapter 1-The beginning of the end

Hello, and welcome to Zeus’s riff of Realm of the New Gods. Now, most people would point out what the fanfiction does by doing an analysis on said fanfiction, and then putting their own two cents in. But I don’t have that much persistence to do that, and I get bored easily. So instead, here’s something that’s inspired by “Terrible Writing Advice”. And by inspired, I mean taken wholesale. By following my expert advice, you too can make sure that you can write like the professional fanfiction writers. It’s that easy.

Hello ladies and gents, and welcome to what will hopefully be the final installment of Fire Emblem: ReAwaken.

Sura T’Lenya: I guess we’re doing this without Crunchy?

Critiqued by Herr Wozzeck and Sura T’Lenya

Hello folks, I’m Herr Wozzeck, and today—

Sura T’Lenya: Two chapters today? Are you losing your mind?

… Yeah, that is one more than I usually do with this fic, innit?

ST’L: Why?

Well… To be honest, it’s been a little hard finding things to make fun of in this fic as of late. And as a result, it’s just beginning to become a slog. Like, it’s no longer bad enough to be funny.

ST’L: But that means he’s getting better, right?

Well, obviously, but how do you mock that?

ST’L: Good point. So I’m guessing this is the part where we highlight reel the rest of the fic?

Somewhat. We still have four chapters left, so I think we should down them in two-chapter long installments. Sound like a plan?

ST’L: Works for me.

Great. Let’s get going, then!

So he won’t be joining us today?

Sura T’Lenya: Doesn’t look like it. He was too busy lamenting the fact he rooted for this guy. I kind of feel bad for him, to be honest.

Well, it is Crunchy. He’ll get over it.

ST’L: Still…

Whatever the case, we still have this fic to snark. Let’s get to it, shall we?

ST’L: Sure.

Art-tastic Saturday! – The Awakening Gang

Hey, folks!

So, I’m kind of an idiot and don’t know how time works, which means my riff didn’t make it on time. Rest assured, this SC is beating himself soundly like the bad little House Elf he is.

…God, I wish someone would give me a sock already.

Well, we can’t just leave you guys without anything to talk about, and I figured there’s not been much Fire Emblem fanart here – kind of odd, given that Herr is riffing the, what, third Fire Emblem fic in the Library? – so I decided to hunt down a personal favorite of mine: A fair amount of the protagonist cast of Awakening, having a good old time.

Sadly, I don’t know who made this, what it’s called, or what site you can find it on; this was found via Uncle Google, and the link led back to GameFAQs. If anybody knows the artist, be sure to toss a name my way so I can credit them properly.

(Visible) cast, in no particular order: Inigo, Owain, Brady, Lucina, Cynthia, Severa, Nah, Noire, Nowi, Olivia, Maribelle, Lissa, Anna, Gaius, Robin, Tharja, Chrom, Sumia, Cordelia, I think that’s Laurent sitting on a roof in the distance [No, stupid, That’s Morgan. Look at the damn jacket embroidery. -Book Specs], and the dragon-riding silhouette in the sky is Cherche. No clue who the shadowy horseman is.

Have a good weekend!

Ugh… What the hell happened last time…?

Crunchy: Oh good, he yet lives.

Sura T’Lenya: And you doubted me for a second there.

Ugh… What happened…?

ST’L: Well… You hulked out on something that I’m not going to repeat here, and you kind of went unconscious mid-riff.

Oh… Well, shit… Anything crazy happen while I was gone?

C: Just some villainous grandstanding from our mage Awesome McEvil. His name is Malus, for the record.

… Man, isn’t that rather on the nose?

ST’L: Still the same as ever, eh?

No kidding. Anyway, I guess we’re up for more snarknig?

ST’L: I think so. Right, Crunchy?

C: Of course.

Cool… Let me just wake up a little, and we’ll get started. In the meantime, update?

ST’L: Sure.
