(Tigger warning: rape)
Found a NiGHTS sue. This thing is irritating.
So far, the suethor has a 10 chapter fanfic about her OC. But because it’s TEN chapters, I think that doing a Let’s Read of the whole thing would be too much. So instead, I decided that it would be better if I were to just describe to the best of my ability the sue’s backstory, with all information being taken from what I’ve read in the fic. I will also occasionally take snippets from said fic to aid in my description. This will be Part 1 of my description, so let’s get to it!
First thing’s first, I’ll start with the basics. The sue was originally a human named Dialla Ramsey. She’s apparently a 16 year old girl who is 5.2 and 107 lbs. (I was a little curious about those measurements. Correct me if I’m wrong, but based on what I’ve researched, this sue is seriously leaning towards being underweight!). However, the suethor just hand waves it as her being “small for her age”.
She also has the whole tragic backstory thing. Her mother cheated on her father and he left as a result. Surprise surprise, the father was also the stereotypical “good and kind parent” who believed in the sue’s
crazy whimsical little fantasies about seeing NiGHTS related things in real life and he’s the only one who was ever kind to her and understood her and blah blah blah, you get the picture. The mother is the stereotypical “mean and evil parent”:
She ran a hand through her dark pink hair, wishing she had inherited her father’s royal blue. She had asked her mom into dying it that color but the woman wouldn’t have it.
"I don’t want to look at you and be reminded of him!" Her mother would say, then would always add with a bitter voice. "You act like him enough as it is."
To which Dialla would retort in her mind. ‘As apposed to being be a trollop like you, that can’t hold a relationship for more than a month? No thank you!’ But of course she would never says this out loud. She couldn’t stand to be slapped again. A punch was one thing but slaps just stung and were humiliating.
UUUGGHHH IT’S SO MELODRAMATIC JUST STOP
So the mother is neglectful, abusive, and brings home strange men. This is also another part of the sue’s tragic past, as the man that the sue’s mom is with in particular, Stan, is apparently a big creeper towards Dialla and attempts to rape her at one point. She gets away, locks herself in her room, tries to call the police, drops the phone, AND THEN PROCCEDS TO JUST SIT DOWN AND DRAW HER FIREND’S NiGHTS OC LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED. It never affects her, NOT ONCE, throughout the rest of the fucking story and it is never mentioned again.
The sue’s school life is also annoyingly cliché. She has two friends that are literally walking anime stereotypes, Polly (the “perky and kawaii bubbly girl who’s all about fashion and is rich!!”) and Kitty (the “rebel, goth girl who’s emotionless and tells off the stupid preps!!”). And of course, what sue sob story would be complete without the generic bully preps! :
"Yeah, Dialla, where’s the dumpster you dug that outfit out of." A nasally voice chimed in. Standing there in all her puffed up vanity was Gigi Windsor and her posy giggling like morons. One of the followers stepped forward and without warning, tugged at Dialla’s magenta locks with her hand. "Look at this! Such a bold color!" She cried.
Gigi sniffed and turned her nose up. “Cici, don’t touch garbage, who knows where its been.” She flipped her dyed blonde locks.
Cici let go like she had touched poo. “Eeeew! Now I like have to wash my hands!” she wined and her twin sister Mimi consoled her.
Gigi stepped up and glared down at Dialla, she had a few inches on the other girl. “It’s bad enough to exist when no one wants you, your daddy left for a reason. Get a clue.” She smirked as Dialla’s eyes got wide and started to water, but wasn’t counting on the girl she had picked on for so long to grow a backbone.
The pink haired girl bristled and shoved Gigi away from her as hard as she could, causing the bully to fall back on her butt. “Don’t you dare talk bad about my dad, you… you… whore!” Living alone with her mother gave Dialla the special slut-detector.
Gigi’s eyes flared and she got to her feet then swung her hand. Her manicured nails were out for blood.
YAY WAY TO SLUT SHAME WOMEN WHO DRESS GIRLY SUETHOR
Mini rant here, I can’t STAND it when suethors do this. It’s petty, it’s snobby, and it doesn’t make us like your OC any better. Get over yourself.
Ahem, ANYWAY, so it turns out that the sue and both her friends are all NiGHTS fangirls, particularly the sue herself (remember this fact):
"By the way," Polly decided to change the subject and take their minds off the unpleasantness of high school. "I finally got the last issue!" Polly cried excitedly, taking a comic book out of her pack and then shoving it in Dialla’s face. "Sorry, I’m just so psyched that I have the complete set!"
"S’okay. Let me see!" Dialla, grateful for the change of topics, took the thin paperback out of her squealing friend’s hands. "Oh my gosh! This is it! Nights into Dreams 6th issue!" she exclaimed flipping madly through the comic, squealing and blushing at every part that showed a picture of Nights.
Yeah. The sue’s “admiration” gets progressively creepier:
Dialla was staring out the window at the clouds, daydreaming. She took pride in her ability to daydream. Unlike her night dreams which haven’t changed and where she lacks control, she was in her element. Sometimes it became so intense that she couldn’t see anything even though her eyes were open, she would fly, run, jump; but her body stayed still in her seat.
In this particular moment she was daydreaming about NiGHTS of course and she was flying with him through the clouds, laughing and smiling at each other. Suddenly, the nightmaren was in front of her. His marble blue eyes sparkled with love and untold secrets. She smiled back. Their faces drew closer and closer, he closed his eyes and she did the same.
Dialla’s eyes snapped open when something hit her temple and she looked down to see a tiny pink paper airplane on her desk. Stupid Polly.
Unwrapping the paper she read the sparklely blue ink. ‘Dreaming about a certain purple horned cutie?’ she glanced at the sender and gave a sheepish grin that made Polly giggle. The blonde went back to taking notes in her pink fuzzy notebook.
Unbeknown to Dialla, Kitty was staring at her from her desk behind her. The bluenette’s eyes narrowed and she forced herself to look back at her sketchbook, where love poems written to NiGHTS took the place of math notes.
She sighed looking at another picture on her desk; it was a picture of herself and Nights together. She was so pathetic. Not only was she a die hard fan of a game hardly anyone plays, she actually dreams of him coming for her and rescuing her from this place.
Why she put so much faith in this imaginary being was simply because she loved him. Correction, she was madly in love with the purple jester… head over heels, couldn’t stop thinking about him, in love. She loved his care-free personality, how no matter how dire everything got he could still bring her joy. She wished on countless stars for him to come alive and be her boyfriend… maybe more. Yet no matter how hard she wished, it never came true.
She slammed the door shut and locked all seven locks then dead-bolted the door, and then shoved her dresser in front of the door. Once the barricade was up, she dove under the bed and sobbed, her fingers shook as she tried to punch in 9-1-1, but she dropped the phone when her door knob rattled and Stan pounded on the door, screaming at her and calling her all kinds of things.
Dialla moved back further under the bed, squeezing her eyes shut and attempted to day dream him gone. She daydreamed that NiGHTS came through her window and flew her out to safety, whispering that it was going to be alright, chanting her name over and over.
This chick’s crazy!!! Seriously, there’s liking a character and then there’s flat out obsession! If it’s affecting her so much that it’s also affecting her life, I think it’s time for a major reality check!
Anyway, the sue falls asleep, ends up in Nightmare, and gets saved by Reala. He takes her to Wizeman where he turns her into the above pic: a half human, half Nightmaren replacement for NiGHTS (who they also never stop comparing her to by the way) named DAiZ (yeah, DAiZ, so original). When asked for an explanation as to why her of all people, we get this:
"You will replace the one who betrayed me."
NiGHTS. “B-but why me?
"I have my reasons. From now on, your name is DAiZ."
BECAUSE REASONS. The suethor’s explanation for DAiZ being chosen is literally BECAUSE REASONS. Keep in mind that this also is never brought up again or questioned, she just accepts it. This sue is not only crazy, she’s also an idiot.
After she blindly just accepts her new enslavement, she walks around with Reala and gets to know him (this is told instead of shown mind you). He is completely OOC and is polite and courteous to her and even tells her of his super-secret plan to overthrow Wizeman (whom he is completely loyal to in the games) at some point and take over for himself. He just tells her this, like it’s no big deal! Also, remember all of that obsessive fangirling over NiGHTS that she did? How she went on and on about how he’s her ideal boyfriend? COMPLETELY FORGOTTEN, she just moves on to Reala:
Creepy! Creepy! Creepy! Creepy! Creepy! Creepy! Creepy! Creepy!
He’s kinda cute.
DAiZ shook her head, “Where did that come from?! Cute? He’s scary!
But a good scary. Her mind argued.
He gives me the creeps. She shot back.
Creeps? Or something more along the lines of nosebleeds? Her mind purred, if minds could even purr.
Gross… He looks like the lead mime from a circus slasher flick.
But a cute mime-
"Ahhh! SHUT UP!" She screamed.
Greeeaaaattt, a badly-written love triangle, that’s just what this story needs. The next three chapters after this is just useless filler dedicated to showing how happy the sue is now that’s she’s been kidnapped and becoming friends with practically all of the bosses in the entire game like they’re one big happy family or something. She’s also stated to be training throughout this period, which could be a great way to show her getting over a conflict that she is said to have at the beginning of her enslavement (she can’t fly), but it’s never gone into detail and is just once again told instead of shown. We never once see her make an attempt to try and fly, we’re just told that she’s been trying.
Whew! And that concludes Part 1 of my summary! I’ll get Part 2 uploaded once I’m done with it (Only one more chapter of horror left!).
Hope you enjoyed!
