Hello, lovelies!

*flounces into the room with a giant mug of eggnog in her grip*

Welcome back to Betrayal!  And speaking of betrayals, all my helpers abandoned me this week when they found out I’d be doing this fic instead of PB:LiW.  As I’m on my own, I figured I’d need some foritifcation to make it through.

*sits down in her chair and sets the mug on the desk before pulling a bottle of Fireball Whiskey from her desk drawer*

This should do it!

*adds a generous glug to her eggnog then takes a big swig from her mug*

Ah yessssss.

Now that I’m ready to go, let’s recap.  Sakura encountered a couple of demon children and they all exited the forest into the forest, while Naruto et al ate ramen and then went to… someone’s… house.  Sakura may or may not have teleported into the scene to hit Naruto.  The details are about as muddled as the author’s notes are prolific.

Critiqued by Lyle and Koori

Hello, everyone!  Happy Monday and welcome back to Betrayal.  Last time we went through this fic, a lot of cracked-out stupid happened.  There was something about Sakura summoning her demon creature who may or may not have killed Ino and then ate her.  Neji was overpowered by Sakura and then everyone had a party in the hospital while Neji admitted to Sakura kissing him.  This is a bid deal because blue.

I’ve been under the weather lately, so hopefully this chapter doesn’t kill me.  Let’s do it.

Critiqued by Lyle Koori and Lina

Koori:  Hello everyone!  Miss Lyle is at work today – and tomorrow for that matter – in order to get a five-day weekend that starts on Friday, we will be handling the riff today.

Lina:  A five-day weekend would just be a week off, there, Perky.

Koori:  Not listening!  So last time on this piece of crap, there was a confrontation of sorts between Sakura and a bunch of ANBU that aren’t actually ANBU.  Bascially, the author just name-dropped enough of the main characters to try to appear as if she’s actually seen the show or read the manga.  By the end of the chapter, Sakura summoned something.

Lina:  Don’t forget about the copious author’s notes scattered throughout this thing, too.  Those have been as much fun as pulling teeth.

1775: Betrayal – Author’s Note and Chapter Two

Title: Betrayal

Critiqued by Lyle

Hello, lovelies!  After some consideration (not a whole lot, mind you, just some) I’m dropping SONIC HIGH SCHOOL.  It was sapping my will to live and just wasn’t funny anymore.  So good riddance to the trollfic.  Let’s get back to the crackfic I’m doing, instead!

Last time, Sakura ran into Ino, who was turned into a moss-covered cat.  Ino told Sakura that she has a demon inside of her and then Sakura fake-exploded, the author threw a random-ass note into the middle of the fic explaining that Sakura didn’t actually explode, made fun of Ino, and then resumed the story.  Sakura decides to follow Ino’s advice of skipping town and we find out that Ino is actually serving a dark master (that the author reveals in her author’s notes to be Madara Uchiha, because what the hell is suspense and mystery about, right?)

With that, let’s start the next chapter, which is really an author’s note, because Darksakudragon doesn’t put enough author’s notes before, during, halfway through, and at the end of the prose as it is.

I’m sorry.  I’m so, so very sorry.  I can’t apologize enough for what I’m about to subject you to, my poor lovelies.  Welcome to “Betrayal.”

“Betrayal” hails from the Naruto section of ff.net.  Koori has been conspicuously absent since I mentioned I was going to look into riffing this fic, but I’m sure she’ll show up periodically to rage at the story for it’s numerous inaccuracies.  I won’t bother infodumping before we get started since I’ve done Naruto fics in here before.

Let’s dive in.

Critiqued by Lyle Koori and Hekai

*Koori peeks her head into Lyle’s office, glances around, then slips in*

Koori:  Good morning, everyone.  *looks around again*  Uhm.  I honestly don’t know where Miss Lyle is today, which is worrisome since I’m supposed to be really good at gathering information and this is making me look horribly incompetent.  *fidgets and chews on her bottom lip*  I’d go looking for her some more but, according to my contact, I’m supposed to take her place in the riffing chamber should something like this happen.  But don’t worry too much, patrons; my host-clan, the Batá no Ninja, are out searching diligently for her.  And Lina said as soon as the morning rush ends, she’ll dispatch a couple baristas to aid in the search and rescue efforts.

In the meantime, I’m just going to take over here.  Shouldn’t be too hard, right?  I’ve done this before, although never on my own.  Let’s see here…

*sits down in Lyle’s chair and flips through some notecards*

Last time, we discovered that Alice was a better writer than Echinoderm, although she still needs some work.  Her character was reborn as part of the branch family of the Nara clan that the author made up.  But that’s okay, because she made a joke about it that Lyle liked.  Alice was from a happy family and well loved.  She does have some weird defect dealing with chakra that wasn’t very clear but it sounds like she absorbs it from around her but can’t produce it herself.  I think.  Uhm.  Anyway, we ended last chapter with her having some sort of panic attack, even though she was three, or five.  That part wasn’t clear, either.

*taps her cards on the desk for a moment*

Right.  Let’s continue with the story itself!

Critiqued by Lyle

Hello, lovelies!  Welcome to the second chapter of the inexplicable Naruto Self-Insert fanfic, Tensei II.  So far, nothing Naruto-y has happened and we’ve read through a prologue and a chapter.  In the prologue, a plane exploded because blue, killing the self-inserts Alice and Enema.  In the first chapter, Elephant is reborn into DA MOSTEST TWAJEK BWAKSTOWY EVA!!111!1111!!! By the end of the chapter, she has discovered that she can turn parts of herself into hard silver and she gets a pet owl named Hedwig Kyokan, which, according to our resident Japanese learner, actually means “Large Warship,” even though our clueless author seems to think it means Compassion.

With that, we are switching to Alice’s point of view this next chapter.  Let’s see if she’s as twajek as Epididymis.
