... And a badfic reporting thread.

Because there's been a lack of them lately.

Over in the Sofia the First fandom, there's this poor thing - it's still ongoing, and relatively short besides, but the badfic aspects are particularly glaring. A Sofia that acts like Sofia (some of the time) but doesn't sound like her, an untitled book in the Secret Library, anachronistic (or at least World One!Earth-centric) references and geography, typos galore...

And most notably, an uncanonical kingdom (plus two Awesome McEvil villains) and amulet. The worst part? Check the author's note on the first chapter. Though really, it makes me worry for the writer, since revealing real-life information like that is one of the most dangerous things you can do on the Internet - or so I am told. ;)
I can only hope that book was written under a penname...

        A few pages that have tended to attract a lot of unwanted traffic and/or trolling are locked to new accounts. Give it a couple days for the new-member gleam to wear off, and you'll be fine. {= )... more
    • Oh, yes, and also...SkaterTheDJWolf, Tue Jul 31 1:04pm I'm not sure if this counts as badfic, seeing as it's a game, but man. It corrupts and twists the ENTIRE Pokémon franchise, nearly ALL of the ... more
    • Oh boy, do I have the fic for you guys.SkaterTheDJWolf, Sun Jul 29 2:36pm
      This one's a Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's fic titled "Sixth Signer". The link is here: She's the Sixth Signer (That's basically the 5D's equivalent of a Tenth... more

        I don't know my 5D's, mainly because I don't know my Yu-Gi-Oh, but yeah, all of that reeks of Sue. That, and from skimming through the first chapter, I caught this little number: Besides being a... more
    • Gonna report one of my own.Lunamann, Sat Jul 21 10:39pm
      Already said my piece on it in the Lounge, but I'll say it again over here. Over in the *Terraria* fandom (which luckily doesn't seem as prolific as some others, but that's no reason to let it go... more
    • Something I'm just going to point out.Iximaz, Fri Jul 13 5:51pm
      You specifically plugging this fic and drawing attention to the author oversharing information, and adding in "that is one of the most dangerous things you can do on the Internet - or so I am told.... more
      • That is: yes, I apologize.S.M.F., Fri Jul 13 8:12pm
        I said - or at least emphasized - the wrong thing, and made a poor example of myself in the process.
      • Touche, touche. =PS.M.F., Fri Jul 13 5:57pm
        That IS the thing I'm worried about, though.
