The Creepy Teen Years

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Read it here

Following Alternate History: The Series and AHDotCom:theNextGeneration, The Creepy Teen Years is the board, in a High School AU.

Staring many of the notable newer posters, and casting the older big name posters as the Faculty, It follows the bizarre happenings at an interdimensional high school.

One would think that sounds pretty Straight Forward and Kinda Boring, but what follows can probably be described as Cromartie High School on drugs, if that's even possible. It's probably telling when one of the few really Sane characters undergoes a Gender Flip ever other chapter or so.

This series is heavily influenced by high school animes, and whatever else the writers fancy at the moment, which tends to go all over the place.

New episodes are posted on the main website, but they now have their own website, where the episodes will slowly be going up. Seasons one and two have already been completed on both sites, and Season Three has now hit the roughly half-way point.

Tropes used in The Creepy Teen Years include:
  • Academy of Adventure: Unsurprisingly....
  • Action Girl: Othyrsyde and Evilprodigy
  • A Day in the Limelight: done for Lord_Roem, FDW, Othyrsyde, Ynnead/Ryder, Evilprodigy and Emperor_Norton_I. Catboy has gotten a Three episode version, and Nothingnow's Day has started.
    • Fenrir_Angerboda has stated his intent to do one for each of the Main characters.
  • Aliens Are Petty: what caused the Aliens to go on Rampage? British food.
  • All Just a Dream: the Halloween Episode "HORRIFIC SHIT HAPPENS". We think.
    • "A Really Terrible Idea" as well. It might be a pure version, but knowing this series? We can only hope.
  • Alternate Universe: it's implied that Ynnead switches between his AU counterparts
  • Alternate Universe Fic: "The Melancholy of Evilprodigy" is basically a High School AU, for a High School AU, Albeit one based more on Shojo.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Beedok gets her arm cut off in her fight against Nothingnow
  • An Asskicking Christmas: Shiny Happy Krall's Christmas-time Massacre.
  • Anyone Can Die: it's probably Easier to list who hasn't died. Which is a Grand total of one, OTHYRSYDE.
    • Fenrir_Angerboda bit it during Season one, Catboy was killed in CATBOY VERSUS THE HOMAGE, Ynnead, Nothingnow and Lord_Roem were Killed in HORRIFIC SHIT HAPPENS, and FDW was vaporized in the Alien Invasion.
  • Anything That Moves: DoctorWhat.
  • Artificial Human: Othyrsyde, maybe
  • Ascended Extra: NothingNow. His first appearance was in a In-universe Fanfic in Season 1, and he made the leap to Major Character in Season 2
    • this also is true for him outside of the Story. He's started as a reader, but has become the Third editor of the Series after the First two left.
    • and Now Evilprodigy has been bumped up.
  • Ascended Bronies: some of the student-turn-ponies turn out to be Bronies, and want to Remain Ponies.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: there was a Giant Man-eating Salamander. Only twenty feet, but it still counts.
    • It was a mutated Axolotl actually, but that's not a big difference.
      • ....Which is a Salamander last I checked.....
      • Exactly.
    • and Then Roem becomes Bulldog_Churchill_Roem.
  • Author Avatar: You'd think so, since, somewhat like it's counterpart series, all of the authors so far are also characters in the series. They like to do horrible things to each other, and to the rest of the cast. Of course, since Characterization Marches On, the cast often have very different personalities from the people that inspired them.
    • Leading to it sounding like the Writers and commentators are talking in the third person in the comments.
  • Back from the Dead: because Death Is Cheap.
  • Badass Teacher: Arguably Emperor_Norton_I.
  • Bad Santa: Bad_Santa_Krall
  • Baleful Polymorph: FDW builds a laser that blows up and turns most of the School into Ponies.
  • Beach Episode: "Because all we have are Beaches here"
  • Berserk Button: the Kazakh border and Justin Bieber for KRALL.
  • Blade of Fearsome Size: Kome wields a lightsaber cleaver blade against Nothingnow.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Subverted in "In Which Levels of Baddass are taken". FDW attempts to make a Dramatic Entrance Through the window for...

Fenrir_Angerboda: "I replaced the window with Shatterproof glass."

    • played straight with the SOM brigade showing up to help the SOF brigade
  • Big Damn Kiss: Roem and Othyrsyde finally Share one in "Break Through the Dream Part IV"
  • Bloodier and Gorier: Season 3 has taken that tone.
  • Bloody Hilarious: In a effort to make his Zombie Maid uniforms look more authentic, FDW used Exposed Organs for them. Ynnead, Catboy and Lord_Roem's Exposed Organs.
  • Body Horror: Australium quickly turns people into Musclebound Screaming Australians.
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick:

Blue Max: "There are…reports of various events from around the school. Water Buckets above doors. Unscrewed Saltshakers. Drawing Moustaches on all the portraits of Queen Victoria, Claudia, Elizabeth, and Margaret. Shoelaces tied together. In fact, THANDE and DOCTOR_WHAT are in the Hospital because some one replaced their…… videos with something called “Pure white lover Bizarre Jelly”, and a video of DOCTOR_WHAT in the shower.
I don’t want to talk anymore about that."

  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Occasionally.
  • Breather Episode: "He's Late", following the Three part "Catboy Vs the Homage".

  • Bunny Ears Lawyer: Much Most of the staff, Especially Doctor What, GeorgePatton, and KRALL.
  • Butt Monkey: Lord_Roem, although he's becoming less of one lately.
    • It looks like Leo Caesius might become one.
    • Ynnead, Catboy and The Unmentionable Sea Mammal also have shades of this.
  • Calling Your Attacks:


Emperor_Norton_I: Died….wait, Died? Hmm. Seems like you people die all the time.

    • so far the only Characters who have remained dead are Mojojojo, Godsown1991, Hashasheen, Imajin and Doragon
  • Death Glare: Othyrsyde's Death glare can blow up Machines.
  • Death Seeker: Kome. Nothingnow obliges him.
  • Demoted to Extra: Randomideaguy. Former writer, main character, and editor in season 1, quite a bit less important in season 2. Isnt it sad RIG? ;_;
    • Randomideaguy even disappeared for the first half of season three, before showing up out of nowhere with out an explanation, both instory and IRL. NothingNow even had trouble remembering when he had last appeared. So, is accidental Chuck Cunningham Syndrome a thing?
    • Blackwave, and several Others also fall in this Category. Whether or not this is for the better is up to the readers.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: This:

FDW:I do not care if you are Canadian, Mormon, Human, Jewish, Communist, Canadian, Japanese, Wapanese, Krallian, Alien, Canadian or Canadian!

Catboy: The only fact about Fenrir that you can take at face value is that he’s an asshole and everything else that he says is probably bullshit.

  • Kid From the Future: Somethinglater.
  • Lampshade Hanging: some of the Episode titles, including "Possibly the Reason Enrollment has fallen in the past few years", and "Probably one of the stranger episodes this season...."

  • Magical Girl: Sparkling Magic Limey Thande in 2x19. The less is said of this, the better.
    • and then followed up With Magic Goo Bunny Ynnead. Don't Ask.
    • and then Finally played straight with Mythical Multiversial Canuck Evilprodigy. Yes, the axe-hockey stick wielding French-Canadian plays this somewhat straight. Or at least plays with it in a not so disturbing manner.
  • McNinja: Beedok.
  • Multiversal Conqueror: an army of Alternate Dimension Thandes show up, apparently as the main villains for "BREAK THROUGH THE DREAM"
  • Mundane Fantastic: Yeah, Some of the events in the background (and off screen) are hideously bizarre, and the plots can be even more so, and they realize that. But well, they're not really as concerned with how Catboy made the Super Serum as they are that the Twenty Foot Salamander's trying to eat them.
  • No Fourth Wall: Played with. Fenrir_Angerboda was completely aware that there was a script in THE DISASSOCIATION OF OTHYRSYDE, but because it was a dream no ones quite sure....

  • Rule of Cool: Admit it.
  • Sadist Teacher: KRALL and GeorgePatton.
  • Scary Black Man: Thyssyde, Othyrsyde's counterpart

    • Everything. Everything is a Shout out to something or another.

  • Sitting on the Roof: done quite often. It's less romance and More Fleeing the Plot.
  • Sliding Scale of Fourth Wall Hardness: Depends on the writer.
  • Small Girl, Big Gun: Othyrsyde in 2x17. Yes, She's The Big Guy, but, well, no matter how you put it, a minigun's pretty damn big.
  • Snap Back: How else does the School recover from whatever just happened or how everyone else comes back to life?
  • Space Whale Aesop: in Classic Twilight Zone fashion, "The Creepy Zone" gets Aesops. Just not the kind you expect.
  • Spider Tank: The Austrian Death Machine. A laser equipped walking monstrosity with a Coffee Maker for a head that spews Stallone and Schwarzenegger quotes.
    • and it's Successor, the Austrian Death Machine 2.0. This time with Hulk Hogan quotes.
  • Super Serum: Catboy's (Off Screen) attempt at making Citric Acid.
  • Take That: US President Obama appears in one episode. . .
  • Tank Goodness: GeorgePatton's Sherman, and later on the Chaffee.
