A Girl Who Brought Down the World

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Christian Weston Chandler, creator of the Web Comic Sonichu, has a significant Hatedom, and you'll rarely meet somebody who is trying to help him or change his behavior. One of those rare people is Vivian Gee, who was trying to help Chris for a very long time...before giving up. [1] One of her attempts to make him realize how bad and harmful his behavior is was writing a micro-novel and giving it to him. A Girl Who Brought Down the World was that novel.

The story focuses on Kid and her older sister, Vivian, as well as other people living in a world ruled by Psychopathic Manchild Christopher Winnfield Vega. Almost all the cast is made from poorly-masked copies of people who somehow get in a conflict with Chris.

You can read it on the author's DeviantArt account. Compare with Asperchu.

Please remember this is a page only about said webnovel. Anything involving CWC and horrible things he did, that isn't necessary to understand context behind story's plot points, doesn't belong here and will be deleted.

Tropes used in A Girl Who Brought Down the World include:


"My god, that gun is amazing!" exclaims the principal, "You didn't even have to reload!"
"It's just that easy," boasts Mays.

  • Captain Ersatz: As the story involves multiple Ersatzes of people who somehow wronged Chris Chandler, we'll just list the most important ones with one-sentence descriptions of the originals in order to make story's context clear.
    • Christopher Winnfield Vega — Christian Weston Chandler, creator of Sonichu.
    • Melanie — Megan Schroeder, once Chris' closest friend, who severed all ties with him after he posted an obscene drawing of her to Encyclopaedia Dramatica.
    • Unnamed magician — Wes Iseli, a man Chris was jealous of a long time ago.
    • Eva G. Warren — Mary Lee Walsh, Dean of Student Affairs at Chris's college, who earned his hatred for trying curb his strange methods of getting a girlfriend.
    • Jones Brimley — Cole Smithy, Chris' half-brother.
    • Clyde — Clyde Cash, who attempted to help Chris before becoming his most active troll.
    • Hendrix — trolls' Hive Mind.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Kid has shades of it. Of course, she's just...well, a kid.
  • Cosmic Retcon: After Chris destroyed the world, God remade the timeline to one where he never rises to power and ends up dying in a mental institution.
  • Deconstruction: Of Sonichu. Just like Chris's comics, it happens in a world where he can do everything, but mercilessly shows how bad it would be.
  • Digital Piracy Is Evil: Why Vega nuked Taiwan.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Christopher nuked Taiwan for supporting piracy, South Korea for supporting Taiwan, and Poland for stealing jobs from Britain. He tried to nuke Brazil after their president called him on his behavior, but nuked Canada instead.
  • Dying Alone: Chris in the rewritten timeline.
  • For the Evulz: Hendrix and his organization's main motivation.
  • Happily Married: Vivian and Clyde in the rewritten timeline. This is a little disturbing when you realize that their Real Life counterparts are cousins.
  • Hurricane of Euphemisms: Lampshaded.

"You just do it for the hanky-panky, the horizontal tango, hitting the hay, the wango tango, the bonus round of love, rocking the room, tasting the heavens, you know."
"Jesus, Christopher. You really have no experience at all with any type of relationship with any woman, do you? I mean, no one uses those euphemisms, I haven’t even heard of half of those."

  • Jerkass God: God himself, who created Christopher as a drunken joke.
  • Logic Bomb: When Chris is trying to have sex with Vivian, she agrees, but only if it will be a threesome with another man. This gets the deeply homophobic Vega so confused, he leaves the room.
  • Lonely Funeral: Chris's, in the rewritten timeline. Nobody attends it.
  • Misaimed Fandom: Vivian wrote this to make Chris realize how much of a bad person he is, and even sent it to him. He never read it (or doesn't want to admit it, which is very unlikely since he's pretty bad at keeping secrets). The story openly insults trolls, yet they love it.
    • He said he liked the cover, and one of his comments on one of Vivian's videos suggests that he at least skimmed it. Also, it doesn't help that in the alternate timeline that appears at the end, Vivian is married to the Captain Ersatz of one of the trolls.
  • Noodle Incident: If you don't know much about Chris, Melanie's reason for leaving Vega counts as this.
  • Poisonous Friend: Hendrix, to Christopher.
  • Power Fantasy: During a fight between Chris and the magician, the former starts imagining how he overthrows the latter and expects him to accept his imagination as reality.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Christopher Winnfield Vega.
  • Take That: Trolls are shown as a bunch of crazy, heartless psychopaths who want to watch the world burning at the hands of Chris and laugh.
    • Also subverted: Chris's portrayal, while negative, is not malevolent... but rather a genuine effort to show him where he's wrong.
  • Troll Fic: Subverted; Vivian didn't write it to piss Chris off, but with the intention of helping him become a better person.
  • You Are What You Hate: In addition to this story, Vivian's responsible for the Sonichu audio books (yes, they do exist). Vivian's YouTube and Deviant ART pages are frighteningly obsessive shrines devoted to the art and antics of Christian Weston Chandler, suggesting that Vivian may have a lot more in common with Chris than she'd like to admit.
    • It's pretty safe to say that Vivian Gee was a bit of a Stalker with a Crush towards Chris. Which is highly ironic, since he himself is famous for his stalker-ish tendencies.
  • What an Idiot!: Vega. The president of Iraq convinced him to nuke one-fifth of the world.
  • White Knighting: The book's intended purpose.
  • World Half Empty: This is a world where a man like Vega, who would reach Complete Monster territory if he wasn't too stupid to understand what he's doing, can become the president...and everything's ruled by internet trolls. Even God admitted this world was His failure.
