This post will be showing how I grade the badfics I will be MSTing.
For starters, I will be adhering to this standard form:
Title: The title of the badfic.
Grade: The Grading Scale will be explained below.
Victims: [OOC Characters, or those who the story is about]
Summary: Summarize the badfic.
Offenses: What does the badfic do that makes it so bad?
Basically, explain everything. Now, if the story contains a Mary Sue, I will follow the above formula first, and then add a few more entries:
Name: the name of the Sue.
Powers (if any): Any special powers she has.
Classification: The kind of Mary Sue he/she/it is.
Unusual Appearance: Anything about her appearance that makes her abnormal.
Other MS Traits: Other traits that identify him/her/it as a Sue.
Now, the Grading Scale I will be following, from best to worst, is as follows:
Meh: Not a terrible one, but not a good one.
Lame: Bad, but there are worse.
Fail: This fic sucks, period. For such subjects as Kingdom Hearts and The Legend of Zelda, a high school AU is automatically stuck here. Unless, like Only in High School, they manage to do it well.
Epic Fail: Obviously the author thought this was actually good.
The Last Airbender: The next-to-worst fics, which are still better than Twilight, My Immortal, and My Inner Life.
Stephanie Meyer: The author writes like Stephanie Meyer. That is as opposite of a good thing as it gets.
If anyone has suggestions as to how I could make this list better, let me know.
