Episode 273 - Ravage Three Bodies Evolution

Episode 273: Ravage Three Bodies Evolution

Meanwhile, on the invisible planet of the floating head aliens.

From the depths of the murky past  comes what could be charitably described as a fanfic (And could be uncharitably described as many other things) about one being’s struggle against fate, destiny, manipulation by powers far beyond his comprehension and his tendency to explode a lot. Born out of a desire to describe different toys and how they relate to each other, Ravage Three Bodies Evolution is a metaphysical tour de force as can only be described by saying the phrase ‘just then’ over and over again, and has to be experienced to be believed (Largely because you won’t believe that something can be this bad). So join us and the cosmic alien space gods, pull up your favourite shelf-warming filler figure and watch as space and time are torn asunder! It’s like having a head injury, only in text!

Episode 272 - Foster's Arc - The Solaris Jokers

Episode 272: Foster's Arc - The Solaris Jokers

The explosion had caused him to explode. Who knew.

Tired of bad fanfics based on your favorite anime, comic book or even action figure franchise? How about something different, being the prelude to a fanfic based on a tabletop wargame (with an optional role-playing add-on)? If that idea doesn’t immediately repel you and send you screaming in panic, you may yet be ready for the confusingly titled Foster’s Arc – The Solaris Jokers. It’s your basic tale of one guy (called Foster, strangely enough) and the mountains of carnage and dead bodies that he leaves in his wake in the name of establishing a backstory and an explanation as to why he’s a burned-out alcoholic bum and yet eminently desirable by potential employers. Add in a cast of one-dimensional prop characters (Titan, That Guy and the most awkwardly-named mercenary ever) and then stop the fic before it begins, and you’re ready to go. Or not, as the case may be.
