Good Idea, Shame About The Execution

So I wanted to see if there were any fanfics you guys have had the pleasure(?) of reading that had some really interesting ideas, yet in some way failed to really execute them in a way that was satisfying for you?

Any fun standouts? Something that looked good on paper then fell flat on its face in the first paragraph?

Anything that fell flat in the first paragraph, I have likely erased from my memory. :p

If I find or remember anything, I'll let you know.

Edit: anything that starts with a mob beating up and/or torturing Naruto applies.

That sounds more like a bad premise executed even worse.

True, but some have novel ideas (at least according to what I had seen in the summary/-ies)... which I never got to see because I closed the tab.

The only time a mob beating up Naruto is acceptable is when that mob is made up of children because children are assholes.

So speaking of Naruto fics, Pride Thief is an interesting take on Naruto ending up in Shield Hero, only to almost immediately trip over its own feet into a pile of cow manure. Naruto not being one of the four summoned heroes is good, him being a thief trying to get food/money for the orphanage that's been taking care of him since he appeared there is better.

Naruto choosing to become Naofumi's slave, because he knew what the Princess was going to do, and did nothing about? Not cool. He also takes the revelation that the matron in charge of the Orphanage is one of the Queen's spies much better than a Pre-Graduation Naruto reasonably should have.

That said, the Goblin versions of Malty and Melty are pretty funny at least.
