It's easy to go full-tilt Mary Sue when it comes to parodying this kind of subject matter, but there's so many more bad practices to explore, I think.

Of course, this could very well be a case of the pot calling the kettle black. I've been writing fanfiction since I started high school. Roleplaying even way before that. I'm guilty of a lot of these mistakes and more. The best case scenario is to keep at it until you gradually suck less. And besides: Most of the time, if you're making something people like at a basic level, no one actually cares too much.

Still, you develop a pet peeve or two after a while.

So the plan is becoming clearer, Pinkie will drive the DM crazy with her "fanfic" till the DM breaks and promises to tell them the truth

This sounds like it would fall under 'crimes against humanity'. The poor GM, the PCs are really giving a hard time this session. XD

And this is all assuming that the DM hasn't been telling the truth this entire time. *Sigh* This is going to get ugly when AJ returns and finds out about all of this. I mean, I'm curious about things and I've bugged my GM about minute things that I thought might be important but actually weren't before. But I'd like to think that even I know when to stop. Especially when it's obvious that there really isn't anything more to gain with pestering the GM about a particular subject.

Having said that, this plan is rather good if a bit insidious. I'm looking forward to seeing how the DM reacts once the DM has had enough of this.

I think it would be funny if the DM cracks and agrees to tell them everything, the next day, and calls it a session and promises pinkie's player that the next day when AJ's player is there she will explain everything. Then AJ's player gets thrown into this scene and decides to skip town. ^_^ I may be onto something actualy, have to wait and see.

Hmm, maybe you are. XD

Or alternately, this is a crazy plan to keep the DM from actually playing AJ any more, instead stalling for time in epic fashion until AJ's player can arrive or the session ends.

You know, the "just crazy enough to work" type. Bonus points if at least one other player has read PP's player's writings and knows she can do much better than this.
