fandom ralph: cynical no-one-touches-him prince, all aloof and cool and level-headed, always finds witty insults for jack, tough, smarter than everyone, everyone’s love interest, popular with everyone, good at everything
book ralph: quite airheaded and oblivious, moderately smart, often pissy, confused a lot, sad a lot, looks tough but is not, taunted by jack, moderately decent person, tries to be righteous, no one actually likes him except for a couple of people, mostly wants to go home
fandom jack: always stupid, either extremely hot or extremely cute, either punk rock or weirdly woobified, unpopular with other characters, always softer than his book version, either complete nerd or complete jock, no one takes him seriously, his whole purpose in life is to impress ralph
book jack: moderately smart but mad, scary, ugly af, ambitious af, agressive, both nerd and jock, obsessive, very manipulative, knows how to make himself popular, his purpose in life is actually stepping over anyone who gets in his way
fandom simon: always feminine and small, flower crowns, always needs protection, sometimes sarcastic, sometimes smokes weed, is the epitome of the woobie
book simon: vulnerable child because of health problems, very smart, very wise, always knows the real cause of the problem, brave, strange af, looks like mowgli from the jungle book
fandom roger: either emo or goth, wears makeup a lot, weirdly has feelings for things other than murder, is inexplicably in love with either simon, jack or maurice, also sarcastic af, always has deeper backstory than other characters
book roger: small but scary, loyal to anyone who likes murder, doesn’t react much, stoic and quiet, you literally don’t know anything about him except that he’s a child sociopath
fandom piggy: quite accurate most of the time, except that he is in love with ralph and is brave enough to confront jack, often forgotten
book piggy: tries to be useful, knows a lot of useful and useless things, p smart but not the smartest, quite dislikes ralph, is terrified of jack, also wants to go home, is thrashed by everyone through the entire novel before he gets murdered, is literally the saddest case
So I’ve seen some posts on my dash talking about how we shouldn’t go after each other over fictional characters and this was reblogged by some of my favorite people in the fandom. It might have been directed towards me, it might have not. However, I’d like to be clear on my stance towards the show
I never said I disliked the show. I was over the moon when the actors were announced. I LOVE THE CASTING. They are prefect for the role.
HOWEVER, the problem for me are the show writers. I hate the fact it happens so frequently that some director/producer/whatever finds a book /series/manga and likes the idea behind it. And then they are like “Oh well, I don’t want to be sued so I’ll buy the rights but everything else I’ll do my own way.” It happened to Percy Jackson, Death Note, Shadowhunters and it will continue to happen.
Don’t try to defend yourself by saying “Oh well, the books are plagiarized”. Well, the show took those “plagiarized” characters and benefits from them. !!! It doesn’t make you a saint.
Back to the topic of plagiarism. You can’t accuse someone of plagiarism without actual proof. If CC actually plagiarized someone, it would’ve been all over the place. It just that these “antis” read it somewhere and immediately accept without researching. As far as I know the author was quiet for a long time. Why didn’t they complain after City of Bones was out? Instead it took them almost 10 years or something. Wtf? It’s not even mentioned on the wikipedia page of City of Bones.
All urban fantasy are almost the same. Look at Vampire Academy and the Covenant series. Why is nobody talking about the fact that the first two books are almost similar?
Friendly reminder, HP is rumored to be plagiarized too. Doesn’t mean it is. People like to sue people for the pettiest reasons just gain some money.
AND FINALLY, DO NOT THINK THAT I HATE YOU OR WISH YOU HARM. I JUST DON’T LIKE IT WHEN PEOPLE ARE TALKING BULLSHIT. I WILL FIGHT (not physically, I’m a potato) YOU!!!CAN!!!LIKE THE!!!SHOW. BUT DON’T SHIT ON THE BOOK FANDOM OR CASSIE CLARE. AS FAR AS I KNOW, SHE’S ONE OF THE NICEST AUTHORS I KNOW. SHE READS AND REBLOGGS OUR STUFF. SHE ANSWERS OUR QUESTIONS NO MATTER HOW STUPID SOME OF THEM ARE.
It’s not like the bookfandom is a bunch of mean people. We’ll accept anyone who wants to be accepted
