Badfic: The Daily Spork
|||||Let You Down- Three Days Grace||]|
I have, in the past, been accused of being a slash “Hater”. This is a popular misconception. Sure, it doesn’t exactly light my candle, but that’s mostly because I’m such a canon slut. The majority of popular slash pairings seem, to me, to come out of nowhere. (Example: Hmm. These two characters, who have only shown heterosexual tendencies in the past, hate each other and have never even given a look to each other that was not seeped in loathing. LOVE!) I’m not saying this is true of all slash, but it has been my experience.
However, let me say this: Spangel. This I can see. This I respect. Several of the writers have supported it. I can watch the show and, as a staunch Spuffy fan, say to myself: “Hmm. There’s something going on here.” I can read the fiction and enjoy it for the plot twists and the emotions, knowing that most of it is written for the purpose of goodness, not OMGMAN SMEX! (Though I have yet to be recommended a truly masterful Spangel fic that does not include said man smex. Go figure.)
Okay, setting the personal tangent aside, here's your badfic.
Culprit Author: lillypadgirl5
Summary: “Hey guys sorry for the title. it sucks i know. Well i hope ypu like this story its about Angel getting stress out at work and spike gets angel to leave for a vacation. Its a slash As.”
Spelling and Grammar: HAHAHAHAH! Oh, god, hysterical laughter!
Best Line: “‘I call you peaches because you smell like peaches duh’ I say then walk out to get his sweats.” Le sigh
Notes: Why do Spangel badfics always turn Spike into such a woman? (S: “OMGANGEL WHY DID YOUGO OUT RU LEVING MEEE?!” A: “LYKE, WTf, Ur SMUTHurinG MEH!” S: “WAAAAAAHHHH!!!!” A: "OMFGTEH GiULT!) Also, would it kill you to actually watch the show and get a feel for the characters' voices (or, you know, PERSONALITIES)? At least you have the stupid “Blank’s POV” markers, or just reading, I wouldn’t know Spike from Adam.
Verdict: 4/4- Abysmal
( Bad foreplay ahoy!Collapse )
Well, at least there’s no princely seed. *shudder* Why do they hurt Avatar so?
