Original ONGOING Adventure Comedy Drama Tragedy Male Lead Supernatural
Warning This fiction contains:
  • Sexual Content
  • Traumatising content

When you’ve seen as many catastrophes as I have, “disaster” becomes a relative term. But when disaster hits, feel free to do what I do—hang your head while waiting for the tights-wearing crowd to arrive. That only works if your superpower is the same one I have though. I’m an immortal walking magnet for superpowered problems.

This new guy, Ted—a fake, part-time villain who’s in it for the ratings and excitement—wants me to be a field correspondent for his news blog, and his offer sounds good. If I can’t beat ’em, expose ’em. The problem is he has no idea what my daily life is like.

One of my current favorites

I was skeptical about reading 'The Fiasco' because both the reviews and the synopsis felt vague, as if people were purposefully trying to hide the main character's 'Power' in order to prevent 'spoiling' things... Except his power is introduced inside a few paragraphs in the first chapter, and it's completely explained as well. I don't understand why everyone is acting like it's a huge spoiler when it really isn't. 

 

I've currently read through the first seven chapters of this story, at which point I needed a break from it to absorb everything that happened. This story doesn't really have brakes, it's action packed at almost every point which -to be honest- is directly consequential of the Main Character's power (the spoiler one). I shall follow suit and not explain his power either, even though I feel explaining it would actually increase the number of readers for this fiction.

 

Grammar-wise the story is near perfect. I don't remember finding a single mistake. 

 

Style - The style is first person and the tone is conversational, as if the main character were speaking to some unknown audience... Which, all things considered, might actually be prophetic... Or maybe just foreshadowing :) 

 

The story itself is a ball of nonstop action and nonsense, which is why it's fun. It's also slightly incoherent and doesn't seem to have a set direction other than 'Get to New York' at the moment. I will come back and maybe score this higher when I finish the next two chapters, but for now the overall story seems to just be 'Go with the Flow'. It's not a terrible story model, but I feel the lack of clear direction and narrative hurt the overall fiction a bit.

 

I rated the 'Character' score at only 4.5 stars because we haven't seen enough of the characters outside of the main one to know much about them. They are all either mysteries or caricatures at the moment -stereotypes. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it leaves open the possibility for the author to drop the ball. Of course, knowing FrustratedEgo, he won't drop the ball. But the half star off is a 'just in case' measure. Once more, I'll probably come back and update this to maybe a full five upon reading the next two chapters (though I might not depending on how they go). 

 

Overall I rate the story as a 5/5. It's enjoyable, witty, funny, and original. It doesn't try to copy what other authors have done in the same genre and it is its own thing. It's unique. I enjoyed the story very much so far and I hope I keep enjoying it. Of course, the update speed is rather slow... But that's forgivable. Each chapter is long and meaty, all filled with goodies. I highly recommend you read it and don't let the lack of concrete synopsis sway you. Give the first chapter a try. If you don't like the first chapter you won't like the rest of it, since it's more of the same -in that the author is professionally consistent. Now if only his releases were as consistent as his writing... *wink wink nudge nudge (UPDATE MOAR)*

Early review, off to a good start

Writing the review as of the 5th chapter. If you're holding off reading the story until more chapters are out, I'd like to point out that each chapter is longer that a lot of other fictions on this site.

 

As for what I think of the story:

Writing style and grammar is mostly excellent, so not much to say about that. There are some minor hiccups in words though, and could be rewritten slightly, I'd give story/writing style a 4 out of 5

 

So far, the story has not yet taken off, but the world and characters are getting introduced, and it seems to be a quite good start.

--

Small spoiler zone (Should be safe to read, doesn't reveal much)

--

The main character is so far not thoroughly fleshed out, but is on a good way to be established as a likable character.  As for the future of the story, it can become boring if the main character is immortal, and the reader does not care about other characters, so if you're intending to go for a adventure/action story, you should do something about that. The story so far however seems to be in a setting which is mostly humorous, and the world seems to be unserious and feels very volatile. As a lighthearted comedy, the story is so far progressing nicely. I would like to point out however that a good world setting only goes so far. The story setting seems to make it difficult to make the main character have a long lasting acquaintance, which i hope will be addressed in the story, I think more characters are needed to make the story live out its potential.

Can't help but count the chicks before they hatch

Hopefully you don't stop in the middle like most authors but from your past works that doesn't seem likely. Keep up the good work and I will also recommend it to other readers.

in a world with super powers, meet the man who has the worst luck

A great story(even though it is so young) i can't wait for more to come out and for the story to progress.

What will happen to Adam? will he be brought to another dimension, held in a torture camp, or attacked by aliens and their lasers? find out more next time on. . .

Well might as well start by saying I thougherly enjoyed reading this story, an incredibly interesting premise is translated into a story that feels like im barreling down a highway at 400 without brakes and just enjoying the beautiful view fly by.

Style: ALOT. Like so much style, the way the author transitions from one arc to another is always something of a joy to see, as i mentioned the premise does alot for this story, having the ability to literally through whatever he wants into the story while it being perfectly reasonable is a great asset.

Story: The Plot Exists as a vague but tangable path for the MC, with the 1st person perspective limiting our exposure to it, its not overly detremental to the story due to how much it adds to the shenanigans.

Grammar: Yeah Good.

Characters: MC is done well, removing a character from the threat of death would often ruin any sense of suspense, but its compensated in this case well in that the MC is absolutely lambasted with terrible situations and watching him try to climb back up.

IN saying that, any other characters development is acceptable at best (limited by the 1st P perspective, hard to develop people through the eyes of another character who cant talk to people for more than a moment before shit goes down.)

All in all, one of the more unique stories on RRL and definitly one of the more FUN stories ive read in general in quite a while. Get on it.

Now just to be hypocritical i havent proof read this review and im sure i missed stuff, so just dont judge this story by my review too hard ok? Thanks.

As far as I am concerned, this story is truly a unique gem. there are not many like it on royal road and every time I try to put it down I just have to keep reading.

As for style. the author sticks to first person and has just the right mix of inner thoughts, outer actions, and dialogue. it is not a chore to read and it is easy to understand what is going on.

Grammar is near impecable and Ive only found around 5 small errors, and I'm almost done.

As far as the story goes, this is unique. there is no other story that has this intreguing combination of super powers, horror, wonderland, and romance.

As far as the characters go. Adam is the most fleshed out due to him being the main character. however, that does not mean that any of the other characters are lacking. I particularly like Jade, his lawyer. becuase the author has went through the effort to make them simlilar, if only to a small extent. 

To summarise this story, if find it to be an uplifting piece about how no matter how bad things get, there is always a silver lining.

JUST START READING RIGHT NOW!!!

This review is made as chapter 22.

First i will start saying that i am very much new to this world of RRL so i will try to be mindful of the fact that all works here are most likely to made a mistake or two ( after all the histories in this site are made by amateurs) but i would like to think that this work here are one of the very few exception and that i almost have nothing to complain except for the little fact that the mc is always in some trouble wich is good considered the story seting but sometimes feels a little rushed ( in the sense that the people and the places that the mc visits or are kidnapped...lol are a little bit wasted becuse he comes and go and there almost no development between him and the others except for a few characters.) and that makes me a little sad but i hope that will change with the coming of the second book but besides that i can say with certainty that this work is funny , have action and a little bit of the right amount of drama  and most important of all : IT IS ORIGINAL !!!! , and that says a lot in this site so yeah good job author and i pray for god that you continue this amazing story.

( sorry for my grammar mistakes english is not my native language)

Two different stories had a baby

If you could take the style of story telling from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and put it in the universe of the Worm online novel you get this glorious amalgamation! I will be ordering a hardcopy of this book.
