“It had been a long battle for survival, but he had managed to prevent the idiots from defeating him once and for all.” That’s how one of the longest novels in human history begins. Is it a work by Homer? Plutarch, perhaps? Nothing could be further from the truth: it is the fanfic by Aura Channeler Chris, the author of ‘The Subspace Emissary’s Worlds Conquest’. Quite something.

Mario? … Mario!

Between 1913 and 1927, after 18 years of work, Marcel Proust completed his ‘In Search of Lost Time’, an epic of one and a half million words divided into seven parts that is not only an undeniable masterpiece, but also the longest work published on paper in history (hence the famous author’s madeleine, by the way). But it pales, and in a big way, compared to Chris’ colossal work based on ‘Super Smash Bros Brawl’.

221 chapters with a total of 4,102,328 words that were published from 2008 to 2018, when the author left the story unfinished with aliens entering Palutena’s world, from ‘Kid Icarus’. And before you ask: yes, there are people who have read it all… even though Chris started it with the sole intention of improving his English.

The plot couldn’t be simpler, basically: Lucario (from Pokémon) and the character that the author already created in another fanfic, ‘The Aura Bond’, are jumping between different Nintendo worlds trying to stop their disappearance. However, since 2018 it has been surpassed by others like ‘Ambience: A Fleet Symphony’, based on the video game ‘KanColle’, which reached 4,555,264 words and, especially, by ‘The loud house: Revamped’.

This is a fanfic updated daily (daily!) since 2017 and based on the Disney series ‘Una casa de locos’ in which its own author meets the characters and goes on adventures with them. Do you want to read it? It already has 16,777,215 words in an absolute madness divided into 2217 episodes. In its latest episode, it already has characters like Goku, Vegeta, the Winx, the original ‘Dragons and Dungeons’ group, and even Steven Universe. Only for the bravest.
