From the desk of the Riffing Academy Headmaster:
It's occurred to me that I'm making a pretty sizable series already in the Riffing Academy, and this merits making a nice index page to put everything on so anyone who is only glancing at the Academy's page can swiftly snap to a fanfiction riffing.
First, for newcomers, welcome to the Riffing Academy. For those who do not know, the Academy is a blog devoted to fanfiction riffings, or MSTings. These are where one takes a bad fanfiction or something similar and makes fun of it with snarky, silly comments. I do a lot of these and I use the Academy to publish my work, which I have cultivated and attempted to hone over several years.
My method is partly-preplanned and mostly-improvised: while I do my homework to make sure the fics are riffable (not entirely incomprehensible, not entirely reprehensible, easy joke setups) I like to think I'm reading the fanfiction with the riffers. This way gags come quickly and the riffers don't look like they all read ahead like I did.
I use many original and fancharacters in order to make fun of the fics, and the Academy's loose canon is based around a direct descendant of the MST3K plot: the Deep 13 and Pearl Forrester experiments gave way to an all-volunteer school in a gigantic space station called the Satellite of Love: The Sequel, orbiting a terraformed Mars.
...in case you haven't figured it out by now, yes, I'm an enormous sci-fi freak.
Anyway, I'm prattling on and I'm probably boring you, the readers. All three of you.
So, with that in mind, let me direct you to the riffings, presented in chronological order from earliest to most recent.Assignment I: Chobits Double FeatureAssignment II: Nameless Planetarian Lemon Re-MST-eredAssignment III: Minoru Double FeatureAssignment IV: Chobits Cliche Drinking GameAssignment V: DID WARS Re-MST-ered
)Assignment VI: Oh My Goddess Knight!Assignments VII and VIII: Knights of the Old Code: The Complete AnthologyAssignment IX: My Inner LifeAssignment X: Velma Dinkley Goes To HellAssignment XI: Ah! My Goddess MedleyAssignment XII: Ah! My Goddess! Goddess Up Above! The Tv seriesAssignment XIII: Celebrian Re-MST-ered
This is the state of the Academy thus far. Other projects will always present themselves, and I always prowl the net for more viable riffing material. I'm a hardcore MSTie at heart: I know crap is out there, and I cannot-will not-let it slip through the internet's collective fingers. Crap like this exists; that's the long and short of it. And as long as it's out there, the Riffing Academy will be here to try to make it readable.
As the motto of the Academy reads, "Ex Malis Litteris, Comoedia:" Out of Bad Literature, Comedy.
