GamersFTW writes - The world of Fanfiction.net is a bizarre place. On one hand, it’s filled with some excellent stories full of great prose, but on the other, it’s a dark, sordid and strange world.
I like bad fanfiction, it makes me feel better about myself.
Some of them are so very creepy. I wonder if the developers read them. I would.
If you want to see creepy just google search "(your name) The Hedgehog" Weird, weird shit my friend.
I think the Zelda one made me laugh the most. I'm curious to know if Link actually speaks or just yells randomly? (I'm sure that exists somewhere).
"Hiyah! Hargh!" etc.
I feel like you have taken one for the team here, now I don't need to spend hours searching myself, it is all here in one handy article. Good job!
I love bad fanfiction so much (My Immortal is still a good read). Fantastic article. I'm not 100%, but I might have read that Zelda one...although, Link is "...big" in most fanfic. Not that I'd know. I mean...what's fanfiction, amirite?
Trampled all over my childhood that has! Much respect for the research that must've been carried out for this article, hah!
Bad fanfiction is a guilty pleasure of mine. I'm not even sorry.
