Subject: Potential Badfics? I've seen a few
Posted on: 2022-01-05 18:13:17 UTC

But I've only got one to hand in today (so far), been doing a lot of reading on AO3 over Christmas, and came across this little beauty (if you want to call it that)

One Potential Badfic Here

It's called The Order of Free Andrastians, in case you're not familiar enough with the fandom to work it out right away it's Dragon Age and more specifically it's a Dragon Age Inquisitor AU where the Herald doesn't become the Inquisitor. No warnings that I'm aware of, it's rated Teen.

That on it's own is not too bad, what does make it bad is if you stick around for a while this interesting concept unfortunately devolves into what feels like a fairly typical Mary Sue story with an overly obvious bad guy that's so bad (in all the right and wrong ways) it'd be funny if this wasn't meant to be taken seriously, a Protaganist who is even more special than normal (this one actually talks with Andraste (read Dragon Age Jesus) in her sleep guys) and most of the canon characters go completely OOC (especially the actual bad guys, it's weird).

There is one downside to this though. It's 141,000 words and 89 chapters long at the moment, and it's still going at around a rate on one chapter a week, so it might be too much to be taken on.

Also hi, to any newbies. To any non-newbies, yes I do still exist even after I left Discord (long story, not going into that here) and will continue to lurk for the forseeable future, heck I might even get a mission or two out some point in the next millenia, you never know.

Have fun and a Happy New Year to you all.
