Itachi: "So, Kisame, how anachromistic is this fic going to be?"
Tragic Romance Play With Anachromisms is a 2011 fanfic by Oxenstierna D. Yuki-Rin. In the fic, it is 1916 or 1917 in San Francisco and the mother of a large family made up with random anime characters, who is named after Paris Hilton, dies. The daughters of the family, Lenalee Lee, Yuuki Talho, Taiwan, and Jewelry Bonney must marry to save their family. It is a tragic look into family life in World War One-era America and the dynamics of love, the decadent lives of the wealthy, and family honor.
This would sound like a romantic Tear Jerker with many crowing moments of heartwarming that would border on Tastes Like Diabetes, but it isn't. It's actually a three-chapter Crack Fic with Anachronism Stew played with according to Rule of Funny.
- Anachronism Stew: Played for Laughs in this fic. While the characters do live in a period-appropriate mansion and our surrounded by influences of the area, there's modern-day stuff such as 7-11, iPhones, pimp clothes, and NCAA March Madness thrown in for Rule of Cool.
- Sarcasm Mode: People who read most of the summary think that Oxenstierna D. Yuki-Rin has finally written something sad. However, they don't realize that they are about to read another one of the authoress' many comedy fics.
- Soundtrack Dissonance: During the weddings of Allen and Lenalee, Holland and Talho, and Trafalgar Law and Jewelry Bonney, the Good Charlotte song "I Just Wanna Live" plays in the background.
