Is anyone still out there?

We do still live, but I have a request! Fandom has become so huge and bizarre and full of kinkmemes and so on that it's hard to keep up with what's good...as well as with what's terrible.

So, my request is:

(1) Do you guys still want to see any reviews? There's plenty of badfic mockery sites, but given sufficient interest, I'm sure we could give it a go again.
(2) What fandoms do you want us to start combing for fic?
(3) Any specific requests? With links?

On the other hand, we're also willing to look at fics that aren't godawful (not like Chocobo Nights or something), but ones that are more....deeply misguided. Go off the rails. Start off interesting, but then everyone ends up weeping and wrist-slitting and so on.

I figured I'd ask, since there are still about five hundred people who have this journal friended. Long time no see!

(1) Definitely.
(2) None in particular, maybe the regular offenders, like Harry Potter and Twilight =)
(3) Not at the moment.

Oh yeah: welcome back!!!!! *waves banner* Good to see you're still alive and ready to snark =D

1. Yes
2. Inception, Hawaii Five-0, Star Trek (the recent movie)
3. Sure, but lemme break out the hard liquor first.

INCEPTION, OH MY GOD THE BURNING HATRED FOR THOSE FICS THAT I BEAR

That is a genius idea!

...There's some pretty shitty STXI fic too, you are completely right.

Got any specific recs? Those two kink memes, in particular, are monsters.

~ LD

Umm, is it ok if I send you the recs via LJ message or some other means?

Fire away! LJ message, perhaps, or however you like.

~ LD

1. YESSSSS.
2. Recent shounen series have apparently been doing some wacky things, like Bleach? Also, TV series Glee has some pretty... questionable stuff at times.
3. I'LL LOOK.

I AM TOTALLY UP FOR MORE REVIEWS
FOR ANYTHING REALLY

YEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Whoa this entry just made my day.
1) Yes, please!!
2) Phoenix Wright, Team Fortress 2, and Kingdom Hearts all have pretty terrible fanfiction out there. :x
3) :x I have none at the moment, but let me get back to you on that. I'm sure I can dig something up.

HOLY SHIT YOU'RE ALIVE.

1. Hell yes.
2. Can't really think of anything that hasn't been mentioned, but I also don't read fanfic in very many categories.
3. In the "not godawful" category, I have this from the HP fandom (it is complete, by the way). Started off slightly interesting. Bunch of OOCness that I was willing to overlook for various reasons that I can't remember now. I stopped reading at the end of chapter three, though, because the plot twist disgusted me ("I can't believe they would do this" disgusted, not "OH GOD MY EYES" disgusted). So I don't know if it manages to redeem itself or become worse or remain the same quality.

...In the Godawful category, though, there is "Artemis's Lover" by Oscar (and/or the sequels), found here. I'm not quite brave enough to actually read it without help, so I can't tell you much about it besides the bits that everyone knows (i.e. bestiality. With a hermaphrodite. And if I remember correctly, a 12-year-old hermaphrodite, but that could be some other terrible fic.). I'm sure it's been done several times before, but I want to see the Fic Bitches' take on it.

(Also, I was looking at the "memories" section of the journal to make sure you hadn't done that one. Are you aware that this journal currently has 69 memories? Excuse me for acting like a twelve-year-old, but LOL.)

HOLY SHIT YOU'RE ALIVE.

I was going to post and be all "OMGWTF HOLY SHIT YOU'RE ALIVE" but apparently a dozen other people have already had that idea. So instead I'm just gonna stand here with my thumbs hooked in my pockets, lean on the doorframe, and nod non-committally. 'Sup?

To answer your questions:

1) Yes. Very yes. Especially from the likes of you, you animal-pelted father figure you.
2) Sherlock Holmes. Oh please, please Sherlock Holmes. I'm sure there's some great stuff since the movie came out (I generally avoid it like the plague, perhaps unfairly, but meh), but there's a very special kind of "Twoo Wuv" S/H fic that has existed since the dawn of slashdom. You know. Stuff like...
3) The Problem. It's got a nice level of competency tempered with "WTF?" and creepy fawning over OMGtraaagic original characters. And 19th century gaybashing.

That should, of course, read "H/W" fic. Durr.

It must be a topical thing. I tried reading the fanfic at the Lois and Clark Archives (Superman related: L&C:TNAOS) and was stopped cold by the SuperMarySue plots and the lack of objective feedback. No matter how bad a story is or how many plot holes it has the readers praise it to the skies and ask for sequels! I'm seriously thinking of starting a site of my own so I can write a few reviews of those stories from a newcomers stand point. Seriously, there is a story called "Masques" that the members of that site call a masterpiece that I couldn't even finish it was so boring - and I'm a brand new fan to the series these fics are based on and open to anything! I thought I was anyway.
All that said, there are a few gems on the site but most of the stories I've read over the past year (about 500 out of 3000)are so bad I couldn't finish them.

Ah, Mobile Suit Gundam Tournament. The sex scene reads like he's programming a piece of machinery. A (worksafe) sample from the first chapter:

Une took her hands off of Reccoa's ass.
Reccoa took her hands off of Une's ass.
Stella and Une turned 180 degrees.
Une hugged Stella.


And so on.

And yay for the return of ficbitches! The internet can never have enough sporking.

You have no idea how happy I was to wake up with a notice you'd updated. AND EVEN HAPPIER THAT IT'S TO SAY YOU'RE ALIVE! I'm going to re-read stuff in celebration!

1) YES LIKE THE NUMBER OF STARS IN THE UNIVERSE.
2) There's the usual culprits like Harry Potter and so on, and in the fandoms I'd like to see, Supernatural, BBC's Sherlock re-imagining, Phoenix Wright, and Mega Man are at the top.
3) Well there's this rather horrible Mega Man X fanfic. Features rape as plot, rape as romance, very fucked ideas of what's romantic, and a revoltingly abusive seme/uke relationship with what's possibly the worst OOC X I've ever seen written since the days of the Megaman Yaoi site that was hosted on Geocities.

(1) Do you guys still want to see any reviews? There's plenty of badfic mockery sites, but given sufficient interest, I'm sure we could give it a go again.
Definitely, you guys rock.
(2) What fandoms do you want us to start combing for fic?
It's all good to me.
(3) Any specific requests? With links?
http://nifty.nisusnet.com/nifty/gay/celebrity/x-men-tales/

1) Yes. Yes^1000.
2) Most of the fandoms I was thinking of were already requested. Though I second the Star Trek XI and Glee requests whole heartedly. Maybe more Naruto and Bleach? Oh, I've got one. Black Butler. And if any of you are into Kpop, any of bandom fanfics you can find. That'd be fun.
3) Nothing specific.

You're going to make me go back and do a "best of ficbitches" re-read. :)

Yeah basically everyone is probably going "Woah, you guys are still around!" right now. INCLUDING ME. Incidentally, how many of you guys are still around besides you, Leather Daddy? (Welcome back, by the way! You guys have been missed!)

1. I definitely would like to see more reviews from you guys!
2. I'm going to ask something no one else seems to have asked thus far: what fandoms are YOU guys into right now? Since you're the ones reviewing it, it ought to be stuff that you all like too. ...Because if you like the source, then your hatred for its badfic will burn that much brighter, as your remark on Inception fic sure displays!
3. Hmmm, I can't think of anything off the top of my head. I don't read much fanfic anymore.

You're aliiiive! :D

(1) Hell yes.
(2) Avatar: The Last Airbender, Pokemon, Daria, Fire Emblem, Sailor Moon
(3) Anything by GoldAngel 2, Little Miss Mary (Harry Potter, there's 4 parts to it), There's Something About Birdstyle (Gatchaman, though I may be going out on a limb here due to how obscure this anime is), Not A Monster (Super Mario)

Edited at 2011-02-20 07:54 pm (UTC)

I can't recommend anything because I only read stuff by friends these days, but I'd love to read just about whatever you find.

Ficbitches! I love you, I missed you! ;;

1. YES TO THE TEN BILLIONTH.
2. Recent/Mainstream fandoms of course, like Inception, Kingdom Hearts and Twilight. But I'd love you forever if you did reviews for Pokemon or Sonic the Hedgehog. Those are fandoms just flooding with weird, fucked up fics begging to be reviewed. Hell, throw Chrono Trigger, Silent Hill and Starfox in there too.
3. Manipulated Love. (Sonic the Hedgehog) Starts off as your typical bad yaoific with WeepyUke!Sonic and WeepyAngsty!Shadow, but by the time we get to the Truth or Dare chapter and Tails admits he's been raped by Eggman, well... it gets really fucked up from there. I always meant to do a FicBitches-inspired review of it, but I never got around to it. And who knows, I'd like to see what minds outside of my own think of this fic. :P

There's also A Day Inside May (Pokemon), which may or may not fit into the lines of "misguided" but may be worth a look. :P

You're back!

1. Hell-to-the-motherfucking-yes-times-infinity.

2. Twilight, Supernatural, Marvel Comics fandoms are chock full of crazy fics. I'm not a betting girl, but there's probably some horrifically awful Black Swan fics gracefully pirouetting across the 'net.

3. I can't think of anything off the top of my head, I'm too happy at your return!

(1) YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSS. Please. It would fill my life with so much joy.
(2)/(3) It's always fun to see bizarre crossover fic. Not a specific fandom, per se, but ranks right up there with bad lemons and Mary Sues. I'm sure I have some in a file somewhere, but my brain is just a little too tired to come up with them right now. Will look and hopefully post some links later.

OMG. Avatar fic. Please, please, there's so much out there that SUUUUUCKS. (And by Avatar, I mean Avatar: The Last Airbender" not the heavy-handed James Cameron environmentalism-with-blue-catpeople movie.)

1) Gods yes.
2) Torchwood? Merlin? Yes to all other fandoms mentioned in previous comments, especially Glee, Inception and SH.
3) I'll get back to you on this since I don't actually read things without rec anymore.

1) Yes please!!!
2) No opinion at the moment. Sadly, most of my favorite fanfics are FF7, which is so last decade...
3) I discovered this one story on adultfanfiction.net that was a crossover between Harry Potter, Braveheart, and Passion of the Christ. It was by far the most jaw-dropping thing I've ever read. I'm on the lookout, but I can't find it at the moment.

Yes, I'd like more reviews please.

There is some really awful stuff to be found in crossovers for some reason. The worst I keep seeing involves Inuyasha/YuYu Hakusho. I love both but crossovers that don't rape one or both canons are almost non-existent. I think I've seen maybe two and both were short. Not that YYH fandom NEEDS help producing bad!fic.

Yes! Please! More Reviews!
I've missed you guys!



I hope you will keep updating your content constantly as you have one dedicated reader here.


I was so excited when I saw this post. I was wondering how things are going with the comm. Will it start up again? *hopeful*

When it comes to that is NOT HOW SEX WORKS the Homestuck fandom is rampant with no preparation for anal and other such things. It would also be interesting to read a review from someone not into the fandom since there are alien romances running amok and making things weird.

Hurray, you're back! I'd be pleased with anything new to read, really.

OH YES YOU'RE ALIVE!!

Honestly, just seeing a new review will make me happy forever. I go and read through all the old posts every now and then just for some good laughs. You guys are what inspired me to try my pen at reviewing.

The only fandom I can think of that I know of with awful fic is Yu-Gi-Oh, but they all get pretty same-y after a while. Oh, Dark Knight has some zingers, too, but I've tried to avoid it.

If I find some, I'll send them on.

(Suspicious comment)
Dear lord, I came here because I saw those awesome reviews taht you made... And found that you hadn't been active in a while.

But, now taht you are... Definitely, there needs to be more reviews ^.^ Like more HUnterxHunter ones... Or is that because that was the one that caught my eye? BUt there's also One PIece, Bleach, all that stuff... The popular Shounen ones that get mutilated (Not that I'm saying that I don't mutilate my characters when writing, but at least I know taht I am XD)

Please... There are tons of stuff out there that are scarring... Like my own fanfics, but that's irrelevant, right?

1. Yes yes yes yes yes!
2. Anything?
3. Anything.

Yay!! You´re alive! So it was worth the wait. ;)

1) Definitely!!
2) Avatar: The Last Airbender, for instance.
3) Not that I know of right now. Unless you review fancomics as well?

Is this still a thing? Can this please be a thing?

I still love you, you know.

New reviews would be cool, four years into the future here. And I HIGHLY RECOMMEND (by which I mean 'Here is the pain,') that you look into Avengers fics where poor pwecious widdle Tony Stark is a poor helpless traumatized baby ukething. There are a lot of them.
