Special Episodes

 

Here's a list of miscellaneous reviews I've written for various fanfics and articles that had to be quarantined in their own section of the site. Anything that I feel is deserving of my professional scorn, but is too short or too strange to cut it as a regular episode of Project AFTER will eventually end up in here. For the most part, this is basically a dumping ground for crap I threw together in a few minutes or wrote as part of some stupid holiday-themed update to waste time. Enjoy!

 

 

Pilot Episode
"DragonBall: A New Beginning"
Back before it got its own domain, Project AFTER was without a home. In order to generate interest in the series and hopefully find a host for it, I put together this brief pilot episode featuring an ambitiously shitty DragonBall fanfic. Ironically enough, this little seven-page mockery is what ended up getting this entire site started in the first place.

Special 01
"How to Write Almost Readable Fanfiction"
Learn the most treasured and ancient secrets of writing fanfiction from some crazy old woman who refers to herself in the third person and suffers from violent mood swings. Despite its claims to being a "guide" and all that, you probably won't actually learn anything from this that you couldn't learn from studying a toilet brush.

Special 02
"Evangelion: Alone"
Since there just aren't enough Evangelion fanfics out there focusing on how miserable and tormented all of the series' cast members are, public demand has given us this story based on the suffering of Shinji, who is apparently depressed because everyone is dead or something. Or maybe he's just crazy, like the author of this disaster.

Special 03
"Christmas at Sub-Zero"
A charming and poignant yuletide tale that reminds us all of the true meaning of Christmas! No, wait, I'm thinking of a different story... This one reminds us that the holidays are an extremely dismal and lonely time of year when past hardships and lost loves are all the more painful to live with. There's also a really creepy sex scene.

Special 04
"Angry About Anime"
If you thought anime was just another harmless form of entertainment, then think again! One very distressed parent speaks out against the evils of anime in this startling editorial that reveals how watching Japanese cartoons will turn any well-mannered, straight 'A' student into a lustful, foul-mouthed killing machine in the blink of an eye.

Special 05
"Helping Paws"
When a married couple is unable to conceive a child, they decide to take a vacation in the country in hopes that a change of scenery will help them make a baby. It doesn't, so the wife takes the next logical step toward parenthood by abandoning her husband in the middle of the night to have sex with loveable Studio Ghibli mascot Totoro.

Special 06
"An Unfamiliar Evil"
A routine rescue mission goes awry when Jill Valentine and the rest of the S.T.A.R.S. team are attacked by the undead and wind up trapped in a creepy mansion. While that part may sound familiar, a preposterous plot twist results in a lot less zombie shooting and a LOT more violent rape than you probably remember from the PS1 classic.

Special 07
"Christmas Fluff"
Reclusive rich-boy/professional asshole Sasuke hosts a holiday soiree in hopes of luring a special visitor he secretly has a crush on. The guest of honor turns out to be none other than Naruto, who, thanks to the magic of extremely unimaginative writing, also silently harbors feelings for a certain former rival of his. What a co-inky-dink!
Anime: Naruto Author: Star Wolfie

 

 

Special 08
"What If Link Married: Ruto?"
This inane "what if" scenario gives readers a glimpse at what life might be like for the Hero of Time if he had ended his adventure by shacking up with a certain aquatically-inclined princess. In an unexpected display of realism, Link's married life is banal, tedious, and utterly devoid of anything that would make for an interesting story.
