I was poking around on Tumblr this fine evening. It's not normally a place I go, but I'll poke around it sometimes if I remember a specific blog I encountered through a link on TV Tropes or something. I've found that if I Google my Internet-name and "Fan Fiction" that a few people who run fan communities on Tumblr have my work on their recommendations pages. (So far, all Legend of Zelda fics. My other pieces haven't caught onto as much popularity). I rather loved the description of my Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess horror fic, "Wolfhide" as being both good and something that readers would need therapy for upon a complete reading. Anyway, tonight's foray started with looking up a webcomic / Hunger Games splice community I'd seen once and found interesting (looking it up again)... and I wound up doing outright searches for various fan communities just to see what's out there as far as blogs for my fandoms.
Hey, if someone wants me to join Tumblr, they should ply me with shiny, shiny fandoms.
Anyhow, that's how I wound up looking up "Super Smash Bros" and finding this BEAUTIFUL THING OF BEAUITFUL-NESS: supersmashbrothersfanfiction.t…
It's not actually a fan fiction community, apparently. It's a community where people submit out of context quotes gleaned from fan fictions. According to the rules there, they will take quotes from well-written fan fictions as well as poorly-written ones, but they get a lot of badfic quote submissions, because they are hilarious.
So, I've been scrolling through (I won't lie, I'm curious as to if anything I've done is there), but mostly just laughing my head off (quietly, it's 3 am and I don't want to wake anyone up) at quotes that are insane for being out of context.
Some of them are a little racy, since, face it, about 90 percent of fanfic in the world is pairings, particularly badfics with their poor attempts at sexytimes, but I think my favorite as of writing this journal entry is this very simple feature: 41.media.tumblr.com/e4ee72f113…

It's just... Yes, it makes me realize that a major hobby of mine (fan fiction) ... is delightfully weird. I wouldn't have it any other way.
