Barts dino dick.
That was the most messed up fan fic I've Read. (I don't really read that much. But this was so funny im still laughing about it.).
Im a big fan of young justice and my friend is a doosh so he sent me a link to a fan fic about a yaoi pairing called bluepulse.
Even if you dont like yaoi this is hilarious.
Though I worn u its slightly mature (kwim)
But if u value your sanity dont read...

hmm.. OOC (its annoying); grammar and spelling errors abound (i'm a bit of a hypocrite that way, as im not very good at spelling and grammar, but I cant stand reading the stuff f it isn't done properly.); and mary-sues make the reading difficult and irritating (I usually quit early); m-preg isn't too bad, as long as it is believable, not like 'they had sex and somehow he magicly grew a uterus and a vagina and popped out a baby nine months later', either there has to be established gender differences (like males that can bear young-for whatever reason, or gender neutralities that make bearing young possible for males or race differences in the gender-matters) whatever the reason may be, make it believable. oh, and I kind of like gender bending, its funny, and you can make the characters do all sorts of funny shit without it being really OOC

I hate gary sues and mary sues,
bad grammar
I tend to like some OOC-ish although some people tend to overdo it.There are some who do the vampire fic okay but otherwise ...(DEATH TO VAMPIRE! ESPECIALLY TWILIGHT! *shudders* oh the glitter...)
Never read Mpreg ( thank God!)
Genderbending is okay once its done well.
I absolutely HATE people inserting characters or themselves to have relationships with important characters, its sicking!
I trully have kudos to those who pulled that one off without making someone feel like strangling the author...

MPREGS ARE BAD! 
Seriously, you like a character because he's a guy and then POOF! You are magically pregnant!
It pisses me off, because I think I could bear with it if it's descripted as to WHY. But... My biological part of the brain tells me NOO! IT'S IMPOSSIBLE, GO AWAYYY! :D

To me its awful grammar, OCC characters, some fanfictions crossovers, gratuitous character bashing, emotional Mary sues that cries a lot, songfiction, fan girl ocs with superpowers, oc characters with ridicules tragic past, ANYTHING doing related to Opitmus Prime's long lost daughter, and unjustified crack..

I especially hate overly emotional human mary sue female ocs that are overpower, stupid, have emotional problem (like crying and spazzing alot), have a traumatic past, and always butting into everyone lives. Many of them claiming the secret lost daughter of a cannon character! Any character like that destroys a good fan fiction.

Sure, grammars bad when you can't even read it, and gender bending is awkward (but fun) when it's not all of the characters, the worst is OOCs. It makes me wonder whether they even know what they're writing about.

ALL of these things. :iconmegustaplz: I really can't stand bad grammar and when they constantly make characters OOC. I can almost live with Mary/Gary Sues. There's no excuse for bad grammar. A few mistakes are one thing. But when everything is a huge run-on sentence and there's no capitals or periods or commas anywhere, I can't even TRY to read it. And OOC...well, sometimes it happens by accident. But complete turnarounds, I can't handle. I don't even like Shattered Glass. In my opinion, if you're going to manipulate a character that much, you should give it a different name and color scheme and make it an OC. To me, the golden rule of fanfiction is that you're using someone else's characters, so you'd better keep them in character.

Also, Mpreg just confuses me. Especially Transformers.
Oh, and I hate it when people write Transformers smut and they all have human parts. I mean, it just doesn't make SENSE. :icontearmyhairoutplz:

Sometimes genderbending can be amusing, if it's done right.

And none of that "I'll make them vampires/cowboys/Beanie Babies/Norse gods" stuff. Sometimes the art can be interesting, but for the most part the fanfictions end up badly written and don't make sense.
