    Summary

    "And then there's a customized copy of PONY PALS, a gift to you on your 14th birthday from the slippery Mr. Strider. Each page contains lovingly hand-written commentary on the deeds of this intrepid young horse. Later, about halfway through the book, rather than see the gag through to the bitter end, Strider began pasting over entire pages of original text with his own completely rewritten version of the story, while keeping all the chapter titles. His revision is a tough, emotionally draining read. But it's cathartic, in all the worst ways possible.
    He tends to get carried away with his projects."

    Note: this work is an altered book, and it plays on the physical relationship between the original pages and the edited text. As such, it's presented as a series of images. Reading the images is the only way to get the full experience, but I'm aware that some people can't/don't want to read it that way. So if that's the case, you can skip to chapter 13, which is a text-only version of the story, including rough descriptions of the most important illustrations.

    Summary

    The year is 2614. For the past two years, the Alternian and Human races have been in a bitter, brutal interstellar war. Humanity's advanced technologies meet the raw physicality of the Imperial armies time and time again. In the thickest fighting, where bodies cover the ground and blood flows more freely than water, stand the Archons: the United Terran Coalition Legion's finest troops. Biologically and technologically superior, they carve bloody swathes through whatever fight they happen to be in. Alternians that have deserted the Empire stand under one Karkat Vantas, who himself stands for an Alternia free of the oppressive Hemocaste system.

    In which John is a badass, Karkat is a revolutionary, and war spans the entire galaxy. And cyborgs, those too.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku has always been written off as weird. As if it's not bad enough to be the quirkless weakling, he has to be the weird quirkless weakling on top of it.

    But truthfully, the "weird" part is the only part that's accurate. He's determined not to be a weakling, and in spite of what it says on paper, he's not actually quirkless. Even before meeting All-Might and taking on the power of One For All, Izuku isn't quirkless.

    Not that anyone would believe it if he told them.

    (This story now has a TV Tropes page!)
