OOC WAY fanfiction

OOC= out of character [just in case you don`t know ^_~]

this topic is to discuss fanfics you read where you were insulted by the portraying of al or feel it is OOC but wasn`t meant to be insulting.

[size=18][MOD Edit: Rather than just looking to be insulted, perhaps we could discuss any fanfic where Al or TBITB seem OOC, and why they seem that way to you. If it's because you are insulted, or offended, that's ok. But let's keep the tone friendly and civil.] - Scottidog

I read one insulting one and another just OOC.
1st the insulting one.He was in some gameshow.My memory is worse than a al induced haze but i remember a bit.
He was on a game show and they asked what his charity was for [special charity edition one]
he just acted confused and stupid.
host:"how about the negro colledge fund?"
al:"the what?"
host:"the negro colledge fund!"
al:Bank!!!!! [it was weakest link, now I remember :biggrin: ]
host:you don`t say bank yet!
al:No bank??? [looks sad]
host:no, no banking.
Now what is your charity?
Perhaps negro colledge fund???
al:Yeah! I`m playing for a negro!!!!!!!

note:This is not the actual story but a wrough idea of what happened,I have no responcibility over the story and was a mere viewer.I had no intentions to insult colored people as I am not racist [exspecially of the "yeah I`m playing for a negro" line]
though I have problems with retarded monkeys [dumb j.v inspired joke]

Another I read recently was "al meets tenchi nuyo" or some crap like that.I don`t watch tenchi or any form of anime but I was able to catch on what was going on.
Basically al was the relative of a female charactor on the show [lots of BS to me]
and was visiting along with his fav hmster in the whol wide world.
The most insulting line done by al was "K-I-S-S ....uhhh how do you spell kissing, harv?"
and in a dream sequence takeing place at a graduation he yells from the audience "speach!!!!!!!!!!!!!" now is al the type to do that????I am not sure of his childhood traits.Maybe Mrs. Yankovic [the much older one,not Suzanne.Lol...not Ms. Yankovic who is much younger either :P ]
Whenever he mentions something involving a topic from his songs [bologna for example] and he would whip out the accordion and burst into song [remember the whole "I tone down the wirdness,it`s not like I am weird al when I shop for groceries"]
and he tries to fix up a couple that just won`t work out.I havent found out how it culminates and I don`t want too.
How about all of you guys?

Hmm what else????
I read a Al meets x-men"
wear they made hm look like

I still find that highly insulting, particularly as a find the word negro insulting- I'm pretty anti-racist, anti-whatever...
Just that line is bad though... "Im playing for a negro!" Tsk tsk tsk tsk.

Well, I know some people that do... so in defense of those people.

Dammit, I rant too much.

i think your a little self centered. its a COMEDY!!!! just because u dont like anime and tenchi muyo (thats the way its pronounced i cant spel) doesn.t mean its bad, and the whole relative to a female character being OOC....

THATS WHO HE IS IN THE STORY!!!

You know what? I'm not liking the tone of this conversation. If we can keep it friendly and actually discuss the topic, fine.

If not, I have a lock and it's got this thread's name on it.
