09:24 pm - WELCOME TO DAS SPORKING [sticky post]

Welcome one and all to das_sporking! I am your host, das_mervin, and I hope you enjoy your stay at my fabulous little community of sporkers. Here, we have over thirty different sporkers that spork in over forty different fandoms including original fiction, so you have plenty of flavors to choose from. The sporks range from the short and succinct to highly-detailed and long-winded, but above all else, they are all devoted to snarky analysis of the stories they pick apart.

Aren’t sure where to start? Well, come on in—this post has the rules and every single link that might interest you and help you find your way around.

Das Sporking Points of InterestCollapse )

The Chatterbox

You talked, I listened—some of the comm members here expressed an interest in a place where they could just talk—well, here it is! Welcome to the Chatterbox! It’s kept here at das_sporking so you don’t have to go join another comm or something. With these posts, you don’t have to keep your discussion limited to a chapter or part of a story in a sporking—here, you can just talk with the other comm members and get to know them. It doesn’t always have to be about badfic and bad writing! Right now, the list of topics is short, but if the Chatterbox proves popular, perhaps the list shall soon expand.

06:16 pm - A Ranma 1/2 Fanfic
A Ranma 1/2 Fanfic

By Sheep

Alternate Title: A Ranma 1/2 Butchering

SPORKER: Ultimate Paragon

Ah, Ranma 1/2. One of the first anime/manga series to have a thriving fanfiction subculture (for lack of a better word), it has remained a juggernaut of anime fanfic ever since the Internet was a thing. Unfortunately, this means that there are piles upon piles of badfic that have accumulated for over twenty years. But even in these festering heaps of manure, there is one turd that stands out from all the rest: a Parvum Opus simply titled "A Ranma 1/2 Fanfic."

The brainchild of an auteur known only as "Sheep," the story takes the common fandom plot of girl-type Ranma getting pregnant and puts its own spin on the premise. Unfortunately, its take defiles both the common plotline and canon, and its protagonist to boot. Ever since it was first posted online in 1998, it has been infamous in the fandom, spoken of in the same hushed tones as Bronies speak of Cupcakes.

Now, I'm gonna level with you guys. I first read this when I was in college, and it disturbed me on a level I could hardly even describe for years. So yeah, this piece of shit and I have a long history. As for why I'm splitting this apart so much? It's partly because I can only handle so much in one sitting, but mostly because I want to really dissect this fic and give my thoughts. I've seen it riffed, but I've never quite seen it analyzed.

Well, that's enough for the introductions. It's time for me to pick up some shears and tear apart Sheep's idiotic bleating.

ZeldaQueen: And so we conclude our story of such woe, etc. and so forth. I wasn't sure if I wanted to do final thoughts on this at first, considering how short the story is, but as I was sporking, I decided this would really benefit from one. I had a few thoughts that I wanted to address for the book as a whole, and what better way to get them out there?

Last time on Early Redemption, Leia went to Alderaan and nothing else happened. Now behold Vader returning to the story! It's going to be awesome, right?

NOTE: This post contains spoilers for The Force Awakens and by now you should just assume that a Star Wars spork might have spoilers in it.

10:23 pm - A Boy and His Fox - Chapter 17
Author's Note: Hey readers, here it is, Chapter 17 of A Boy and His Fox. I hope you guys are ready for quite a bit of action and drama as they'll be spanning the next couple of chapters.

Action is good. Drama - your drama in particular - can go crawl under a rock and die.

I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it. thank you again for reading and reviewing my work, it really does mean alot to me.

Also, if you've yet to see it, I've started a new story focusing on the ladies of Piltover. It's my first attempt at a crime/romance series so please tell me what you guys think. Do not worry, A Boy and His Fox is not going anywhere! I intend on seeing this thing through to the end. - Kiba Elunal

I actually looked on his fanfiction.net account to have a brief look, and discovered that Kiba writes a lot of fanfiction, mostly about League.

And a lot of it is about sex scenes. Yay.

Okay, this chapter was slow in the coming.

Why? I stopped partway through and refused to touch it for a week.

You'll see why I did that. Basically, it involves Kal hurting Ahri emotionally, but through idiocy rather than malice.

06:01 pm - Dracula in Love Chapter 13
Not only is this chapter 27 or so pages long, this is a very triggering chapter for several reasons. Behold, the descriptive sex scene! Watch as we get the infuriating retcon that I was hinting at previously in chapter 5! And be sure to stay for the physical abuse that is inflicted on Mina! Okay, in all seriousness, discretion is advised.
This will not be fun.Collapse )

07:41 pm - 1810 - Chapter 18 - Part II

Yewfelle: So! I know it’s been way too long (again), but in the end, I found a placement and jumped right into my last semester after that. That, well, and there were a few things that completely sapped my motivation. Anyway, let’s wrap that eighteenth chapter. Ready, Laure?

Laure: Not really, but it was either that or an afternoon of stitching and painting the same landscapes over and over with Eglé and Hortense, so either way it would have been dull. Let’s get it over with, shall we?

Yewfelle: Sure thing! So, previously on the inaptly-named 1810, Bella said it was perhaps time for her to stop leeching off the English royals and go home, and Edward seemed to say “why not?”

[Oh, and while I have your attention: part of the reason why it took me so long to pick this sporking back up is that I am now pretty dissatisfied with the way I handled it so far. So once the curent iteration is wrapped up, I will rewrite it, most likely on my own journal so as to avoid cluttering up the comm. Among other things, I will bring in more appropriate guests: a prince who knows quite a lot about teenage rebellion, and an actual Daughter of France. Whoever first guesses who they are will get a gift of their own choosing :D]

Here we go again! (again...)Collapse )

11:10 pm - A Ranma 1/2 Fanfic, Part 2
Hidely ho, readerinos! Well, I'm here again to continue my sporking of Sheep's most notorious work. And if you thought Kuno being turned into a rapist was bad enough, well, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Anyway, when we last left off, Ranma had just woken up and found out Kuno violated hir while che was unconscious. Here, we get to see the reactions to this news.

Well, I think this is as good a spot as any to take a break. But don't worry, I'll come back. And when I do, I'm turning Sheep into mutton once and for all.

Good God, I need a stiff drink...

AURORA: Welcome to Maragor, everyone. As you might expect from a country full of ghosts and a god who’s gone partially insane with grief, this and the next chapter is going to be grim, though we’ll spare you the rather gruesome descriptions of said ghosts. Thankfully, we spend most of it on a completely different subject.
