THE MOST OVERRATED FIC EVER!

Spin the Bottle
Book One
Book Two
Book Three
By Princess Destiny

For some reason that I can't quite figure out, people like this fic. I don't know why. It's not like it's high quality writing or anything. It's mediocre at BEST. Sure, the grammar – while not great – is passable… but that's all that I can find.

"Spin the Bottle" starts off decently. It's about Usagi crashing an older party and playing guess what? Spin the Bottle! Naturally, Usagi and Mamoru get stuck in the closet together. Then things get weird. Really weird. Everything that occurs after chapter 7, however, has absolutely nothing to do with the earlier parts of the fic.

From then on, we're forced to suffer through chapter upon chapter upon chapter of absolutely nothing happening. Meanwhile, we discover that Usagi and Mamoru have multiple personality disorder. Now, while they both may have their problems, MPD isn't supposed to be one of them.

The last time I checked, roughly half of the senshi die only to be resurrected and psychically linked to Usagi and Mamoru. All of the linked persons can't be further than five feet apart from each other or else they risk dying AGAIN. The Tsukino house blows up so all of the Senshi and family AND friends are forced to move into a large mansion that Mamoru bought immediately and with cash. Minako shows up. Mrs. Tsukino becomes pregnant for one whole hour (no sex needed!) and gives birth to a daughter that is the reincarnation of Queen Serenity – known here as "Seline". This, for all intents and purposes, makes Usagi her mother's older sister. However, Queen Serenity is lucky enough to age to a teenager within minutes of her birth. Then, the generals from the past mysteriously appear and everyone hangs out in what is now the senshi living room.

Like I said earlier, why anyone likes this fic is beyond me. I fear for the world. May the fans of this fic never breed.


A fun quote:

Sailor Pluto smiled in amusement and then de-transformed. Everyone stared at her and her smile widened. "Call me Setsuna, when I'm not transformed" she told them, running a slender hand through her long dark green hair.

"That's a Japanese name" Usagi noted, startling them all again with her intelligence. It would seem that Serenity was emerging fast within her body. ["HEY! I'm not a total airhead now!"] she growled at Ami, Rei and Mamoru when they opened their mouths to say something.

The interesting thing to note here is that USAGI is also a Japanese name! I'd hope that she would be able to notice something like that considering how she lives in JAPAN and all….


"I stopped reading after the house blew up. I'm willing to suspend my sense of reality, but I draw the line at chucking it out the window." - Lyra on STB.

"How the fuck does one go about writing an ~epic~ *snicker* about the DUMBEST GAME ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH? No, no, sorry, stupid question. How the fuck does one convince people to READ this?" - Wreaker of Havoc after being told the plot to this fic.
