Hello, patrons, it’s Wednesday again so it’s time for Pudding!

No, not the delicious kind, I mean the soul crushing kind.  However, I think I heard Gumdrop yodeling from the kitchen on my way in today, so we might get both.

Anyway, let’s just plorp our way into this one!

Announcer: Welcome species from Earth and Wisconsin!

Greetings back from Wisconsin, Announcer, we will send you our customary gift basket of fresh bratwurst, cheese, and local craft beers.

G4: HAHA! I KNEW IT! I knew people from Wisconsin were alien hybrid, but you people didn’t believe me! Not even Dave!

Rude.  I know somebody who will be getting a face-hugger in their gift basket.

Hey, patrons, I’m back from Gen Con and ready to riff!  Had a good time overall and even got to hangout with Ghostcat and Herr a bit.  But you aren’t here to read about what a good time I had, no, you’re here to read about me suffering through another Talk Show of Pudding episode.

Once again no recap of the previous episode because there’s no continuity to speak of.

G4: Welcome back to another episode of Talk Show of Pudding

G4: Welcome back to another episode of Talk Show of Pudding!

And it was at that moment that Gassy found himself unstuck in time.

Hello, patrons, and welcome back to another installment of the LOL!Random funtimes known as Pudding Talk.  Since the summary of this episode is just mentioning the interview character, and there’s no continuity worth doing a recap for, we’re just going to jump right in.

G4: We’re here again at Talk Show of Pudding!


You know the fic is really bad when even the writer wants the hell out.

Camera goes to a cage with CHN in

G4: because you will go all fangirl on the guest (whispers) plus we ran out of straight jackets.

Ignoring everything else going on here in favor of being pedantic: does this mean you finally decided to delineate actions with parenthesis instead of just having the characters say what they’re doing?

That’s a nice bit of improvement.  A shame that it’s completely overshadowed by the rest of the fic being so fucking awful in both concept and execution.

CHN: I would not! I have gain self-control lately!

It’s Wednesday so you know what that means, patrons!  Pudding time!

I’m so, so sorry.

But not sorry enough to not subject you to this.

Now, since there’s no continuity between episodes to speak of, we can just jump right into episode two without worrying about any kind of recap.  We’ll also skip the summary this week as all it says is, “This ep 2, Gaara is in,” but with more words.

Well hey there, patrons!  Welcome to my latest mini-project, Talk Show of Pudding!

As a little background, I found this… thing through a completely different fic in my to-do pile that this author wrote.  When I went to profile-check her this week, I found this little mini-series of pure fail and moved it to the front of the list.

Before we talk about what this ‘fic’ is, let’s first take a look at why it immediately caught my eye:

This is when two siblings are bored. They make a TV talk show. Their fisrt guest is… Luke Skywalker! There’ll be anime, video game, and other characters from random stuff later on.

If you want a recipe for a hot mess, you’ll not often find a better one than that.  I mean the parody/humor genre on FF.Net is already a cesspool, but literary talk-shows never end well.  And toss in a couple of bored teens into the mix and you’ve got yourself something special.

And by special I mean one of the most* cringe-inducing attempts at humor I’ve seen.

*Not true, but this does count as one of the few that are super-cringy but don’t feature swearing and racism as the focal point of the humor.

This particular train-wreck is written by memyselfisesshy93, an author of some other fics that we may see featured here in the future, and Ghastlyme4, who is strangely absent from ff.net.  I presume either because he was banned from the site, closed his account, or never actually was a writer and just using an online handle.  I personally think it’s the last thing as some snooping around online found a few references to that username on the World of Warcraft and League of Legends forums.  And given what we’re about to see, that fits the demographic where I’d place Ghastly.

Anyway, this series consists of seven episodes, of which only six are available.  The fourth episode is missing, likely because it was reported for some form of offensive content.  You’ll see why that’s the most likely reason in a very few moments.  Though, I suppose it’s also possible that they misnumbered their episodes and never thought to go back and check to make sure they were done properly.

2357: Battlestar Highschoolia – Oneshot (ACCIDENTAL DOUBLE-POST SATURDAY!)

Hello everyone, and welcome to a special interlude! Yes, last time I did make out that my next riff would be the third part of the XSGCOM: Mirror Image riff; but then I found this, and everything changed…wow, that was REALLY overdramatic.

Anyway, there hasn’t been a ‘Battlestar Galactica’ riff before (well, unless you count fanart), so let’s add some frakking background! Battlestar Galactica is a 1978 TV…woah, hang on!

*scribbles out background we don’t need*

Sorry, I was about to go on about the ORIGINAL Battlestar Galactica; which was 10% cheesy 70’s style; and 90% trying to ride off the success of Star Wars. Anyway, that show was successful enough to garner a significant fanbase. Unfortunately, it didn’t get a revival till one fan, the brilliant Ronald D. Moore (the guy behind some of the best episodes of ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’, as well as a writer who’s worked on a wide range of sci-fi franchises), decided to reincarnate the show in the early 2000’s. And thus, we were given the 2004-05 TV show, Battlestar Galactica.

Scarlet: *Snerk*


Scarlet: It’s a riff, friend, not the Resurrection of Christ. Pull back on the reins a bit.

…Fine. Fuck you, ruining my fun like that.

Scarlet: Someone has to keep you honest.

Anyhow, to refresh the memories of anybody who might have forgotten: I took a hiatus. I made a post about it when I did. The terms of my hiatus were simply that I was out, indefinitely, until such time as I felt like I was ready to come back. Recently, I’ve been starting to feel like riffing again, so I’m easing myself back into the swing of things with a short riff here and there, as the mood takes me.

With that in mind, we come to the fic: “Through the Darkness,” by author Arisenlicious, a one thousand-some-such-word fic from the Dragon’s Dogma side of fanfiction.net.
