16. Shallow

Okay, I did the unthinkable yesterday and went to read a fanfiction. Solely for the reason that I found this one fan-fic writer with over five hundred fans. Needless to say, curiosity killed the cat. I found one of her works with the most likes and proceeded to read. Bad decision.

 

Granted, it was better than the usual drivel and the author did seem to put some effort into the grammar and paragraphs etc. I will not lie about that. But there's the matter of her being confused. In an instance where the character says something sarcastically, she explains in the dialogue that she was being "ironic". Seriously people, if you don't get what irony is, don't use the word and defile it. You want irony? Read "The Nightingale and the Rose" by Oscar Wilde. That is irony in a beautiful and dark form.

 

I continued on, you know, hopeful as always (being sarcastic, not ironic here). No actually, I continued on because I wanted to see how far I could get. No matter how much I've tried in the past, I've never gotten past five chapters in any fan-fiction, unless it was ridiculously short or something.

 

The protagonist makes lewd comments about her, and is in general, a douche. But she's attracted to him anyway, because he's attractive. That's the only requisite for them to be attracted to each other. A nice face and dimples. It drove me crazy people, because the fanfiction, nay, most fanfictions that I come across, depict teenagers as shallow excuses for human beings that are only interested in boys, parties, and coitus. Yes, I got that from the Big Bang Theory. Huge fan of that show.

 

Anyway, I stopped after it started to get weird. Get your minds out of the gutter, I meant that it got super-mega-cliche instead of just plain old cliche. The first one, Curly of course, who totally comes onto her, beats up a another guy who's exactly the same and comes onto her. Yeah, I know.

 

Well, this is the end of my ire. I'll be back soon to rant some more considering the amount of fan-fiction on here.

 

Your lord and master (anybody watch Foamy the Squirrel? Watch the fan mail thing, you'll get this),

Mina.
