So ages ago I had a crazy idea. A halfling bard that dual wields bastard swords. Littleteapot was my last 28 point build I ever made and I honest to god had a blast playing her(even though she only reached level 10) and now the idea has come back to me.
Since I purchased epic destinies I'm feeling a little more confident in weird builds and I actually believe something like this could work, while still being fun to play. That's the main goal of the build plan after all, a fun build that takes people by surprise.

This is the idea I have in mind currently. I want to be able to do traps as well as any other rogue while having bardic crowd control, and a little extra melee damage. Y'know because she doesn't carry around giant swords for nothing!

The concerns I have is that: That's a lot of melee feats when I know I'm not going to be able to hit really awesome damage. Could I perhaps swap out GTWF for extend spell or another spellcasting feat?

Oversized TWF doesnt really do much anymore. the -2 difference in to hit is hardly noticeable.

I'm not sure spellcasting feats makemuch sense wither though. Your Spell Penn is low due to multiclass and your DC's are going otbe extra low due to low CHR and the fact that you are a bd which is spell handicapped from the beginning anyway.
