ProtoCreed exists so Alex Mercer from [PROTOTYPE] can be shipped with various Assassin's Creed characters and be bent so far out of character you'd think he's someone's edgy OC or a terrible Shadow the Hedgehog gijinka. I've seen ProtoCreed and ProtoFamous (crossing over with rival parkour superpower game inFamous) art where Alex looks more like me or a cat in a wig.

What justifies these ships? Alex wears a hoodie and lots of AC characters wear hoods. That's it. That's literally it. You know who also wears a hoodie? Me! Where's my Alex shipping fics?

The Alex Mercer tag over on Tumblr is really quiet and at its busiest, gets two posts a day (compare the Jason Todd tag which gets hundreds even on slow days) so it's really really fucking annoying to see a new post and it's bullshit shipping or "Alex is transgender/autistic/gay uwu".

Stuff like this also happens on Archive of Our Own. The vast majority of [PROTOTYPE] fanfics on AO3 are OoC shipping, kink meme transplants, almost all ProtoCreed and very very rarely an original non-crossover. Most of the decent stuff on AO3's crossposts from FanFiction.Net. As someone who likes [PROTOTYPE] but nothing it's crossed over with, it's really really annoying to have ProtoCreed shoved in my face all the time when I'm looking for purely [PROTOTYPE] content.

The fandom also produces shit like this: (Alex is scrawny and he runs very hot - see his thermal vision) and (I seriously doubt OP actually played the game).
