Earlier today, I wrote a series of tweets about the Osomatsu-san series. In order to save those tweets for posterity, I’ve embedded them in this post. Please enjoy the story!
Fair warning: this story is piled with dirty jokes. Proceed with caution.
Things were going really well for Slaine and his relationship prospects until the princess’s double exploded and an interplanetary war ensued. He and his sort-of-but-not-really girlfriend lost all touch. They couldn’t even text each other. But Slaine thought they could weather the storm together. After all, he and the princess had already had their first KISSU a long time ago. They were totally going to get married.
Unfortunately, trouble was brewing on the relationship front.
Writing stories is one of those things that for some reason people seem to think is a cheap and easy thing to do until they actually get around to trying it themselves. Fanfiction authors have it the worst, of course. In theory, people know that a fanfiction can be good. Unfortunately, most fanfiction is crap. The reason that this is so is because, even more so than regular writing, fanfiction is incredibly hard to pull off convincingly.
I wrote this post to shed some insight on the fanfiction writing process – but of course most of this does apply to original writing as well, so anyone interested in stories and how they’re constructed should find this useful in some way. It’s a lot more involved than it looks.
Note: This is a lengthy post, which delves into academia and literary theory. I’ll try to explain it all in an accessible way, but nonetheless, I wouldn’t call this light reading.
I thought it would be nice to use my blog to showcase some interesting fanfiction / fan theories I read on the web. This is part of my vain attempt to prove to the world at large that not all works of fanfiction smell like donkey shit.

This particular post is about Hikigaya Hachiman and what he would probably do if he found a Death Note, so yes, it’s a crossover between OreGairu and Death Note. And it’s short, which is nice. While I tweaked the text a little to suit the blog format, I didn’t write the story, so if you have any specific criticisms, click on the link below and direct your feedback to the original author.
