That all sounds great actually! Though will people on Funnyjunk take the bait?

also, thinking about it, i suppose parody law should cover your ass against lawsuit. check out fair use rights and shit.

but you shouldnt be copying the dialogue word for word at any point anyways, so you should be fine.

Well I was afraid that if I kept the same storyline and general dialogue, that I might have gotten sued or something.....

I was originally planning on just scrapping the whole Abridged Series all together, but now that you mention it, perhaps I could try to salvage it....

Any other helpful suggestions on how I might achieve this?

hmm wait, sued? who the fuck would sue you over a fucking deviantart comic? is it copyrighted? is it monetized? what the hell? anyways, i dont know a ton about parody, but what i do know is that you are trying to make fun of the base material. therefore you have to keep a decent amount of the base material.

In general, i see this kind of comedy falling into two categories: a normal person in a bizarre world, or a normal world with bizarre people. I think a lot of the comedy here will come from why you originally chose this piece of trash to parody. You gotta ask yourself: "why is this funny" or "why do i want to make fun of this". its usually because the source material has gotten too full of itself and has gone full retard. Prime examples of recent parody stuff that comes to mind are things like dbz abridged, where the best stuff came out of a silly person interacting with a serious person and pointing out what is actually wrong with the serious person. Or in something like sao abridged where the world is insane and thus the comedy is often from the normal-ish characters interacting with it.

I havent ever seen an abridge of a comic, but its always worth a try and just remember to make this your own thing. Nobody can take away from that. If you want to go the other route and just fill it with memes? Go ahead. But if you're gonna fill it with memes, make it a meme narrative. Instead of lines and lines of text that go off on tangents about stupid shit, take advantage of the spontaneous nature of memes and making everything quick and snappy.

Go crazy, or hell if you are feeling adventurous, combine the two suggestions. Make a memelord living in a normies world. Suddenly theres fucking werewolves. shit thats gonna make our memelord have some hilarious antics, aint it?

But seriously, if you are going to do it, just try to do what feels good to you. I personally much prefer the traditional approach i first suggested, but hey, we dont have anywhere near enough meme-trash on fj. thats a lie, and we know it.

Well either way, I ripped the original straight out of DeviantArt and the actual dialogue and story is pretty cringe-worthy. Like SERIOUSLY cringe inducing, with so much fake edge, Mary-Sue dialogue, and angst that it isn't even funny!

I mainly did this to poke fun at the actual series, while trying to dial down the cringe as much as possible....

why not instead leave the cringe as expected, but instead have characters react to the cringe? not gonna tell you how to write your own stuff, but i find good parody often builds well on the base materials. so if the base material is cringey, adding some sane characters into the mix could potentially create good contrast and thus good humor.

As it stands, the base material is pretty much gone in this, instead being replaced by memes. That's not totally a bad thing, it's just a little muddled at the moment.

Yeah, I unfortunately rely on situational and slowly-building humor

I appreciate your input!

is this yours? because honestly, this may have potential. like is this based off of some cringey ass deviant-art shit? or is this "quality" deviantart shit? because thats important here, on how effective its gonna be to kick its shit.

Either way, you have an idea and if you like it, then go for it. But i'll guarantee that people are tl;dr'ing it. I know because i did too. then i came back and read it because that bit at the beginning about the GMO thing made me kinda smirk. only a little.
