Oof the edgy deppressive fics in my fandom, The Avengers, can get so bad. Peter jumps off of roofs for no reason and then the story ends with Tony giving a cheesy speech or party that magically cures his feffking suicidal thoughts. The writing is usually so loosey and generic and laughable and fast. There are good ones though, just gotta keep mining in a zone See More▼

By far the best ship I've seen that makes no Goddamn sense is Molduga, a desert whale monster, x the chief girl in Gerudo Town

The changing of point of views or changing it from past tense to present tense with no reason or rhyme.
Or making it in illiterate rp format
Or making canon characters act out of character or adding an OC
Or bringing a character back to life even though the fic takes place way after their death.
