Most of the world's longest published novels barely cross the 1,000,000 word mark. But Christian's fanfic The Subspace Emissary's Worlds Conquest is over 3,500,000 words long. (That's about the equivalent of reading The Fault in Our Stars 52 times.) Christian, or AuraChannelerChris as he's known in the realm of fan fiction, based his story on Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. He's been writing it since 2008 which, in case you're curious, means he's been writing about 700,000 words per year. Yeah, we feel totally inferior, too.
The Subspace Emissary's Worlds Conquest revolves around the personal lives and struggles of all your favorite Nintendo characters (Link's somewhat Klepto tendencies, Fox's romantic endeavors), as well a larger battle against the evil that's threatening leave the video game world and invade the real world. Christian, currently a college junior, began writing the story to improve his English: he grew up in Spanish-speaking Mexico and learned much of his English by playing video games.
Reviews for the work on FanFiction.net are largely positive, but would YOU read it? And if you do, will you let us know how long it takes you?
