And very confusing initially. Jace is somewhat of a bad boy but his inner essence is so different from Draco, in my opinion. As for the plagiarism, I have read the Draco Trilogy and confirm that she used uncited outside material.
However, it was more a desperate desire to see what happened next rather than the fact that I was actually enjoying what I was reading so much.
Originally, when Clare, originally known as Cassandra Claire in the Harry Potter fandom, announced she was getting a trilogy published, I was ecstatic. I adore fanfiction and I know of some fanfiction that are almost if not just as good as canon. It made for a highly social night though, since everytime I did, I’d get a few “I am losing my mind, waiting! There were a few passages were I thought, if I were her editor I would have cut these or told her to rewrite it to make it a little bit more believable.
Incidents will sort of morph, but you can still keep to your general plot and character arc even if certain plot incidents are changing. Net in late On the other hand, those quotes made the characters funnier, so part of the admiration she was getting for her fanfiction should have gone to the real authors of those quotes.
What I think people have forgotten is that it was way more than just a couple of Buffy and Blackadder quotes. But again this is also just my opinion:: I have to agree it’s definitely one of those grey areas of plagiarism. I mean, if fanfiction is not for profit and it is all about taking someone else’s characters and world and using them to tell stories, is it so wrong to use snarky one-liners from other works trilovy put them in your characters’ mouths?
I’d love to do it professional and have that be basically all I do. It’s a pleasant read, but I wouldn’t have wanted canon to go that way. Matched by Ally Condie and of course the Hunger Games are two examples I can think of off the top of my head. That makes sense, actually, if it was published prior to OotP. So that’s enough about the writer. There’s solid writing here, beyond the borrowed elements. Jan 06, Isabella rated it it was ok Shelves: And then, all of the sudden, she starts it again.
The wank surrounding the plagiarism accusation was so immense as to give Cassandra Claire the nickname ” She Who Must Not Be Named ”  in the Cult-of-Meaner circles in Harry Potter fandom, in the belief that even mentioning her name was enough to derail any wank report into a discussion of whether or not what she had done was plagiarism.
Draco Dormiens (Draco Trilogy, #1) by Cassandra Claire
Just wondering if you had any thoughts on that? I do remember people running around yelling plagiarism before she published and it was just her fanfics, though, which is a bit silly when she admits she didn’t write those lines, credits who did, and it’s fanfiction to begin with. But I definitely, definitely think that drafo hugeness of popularity of the Draco Trilogy had a big deal to do with it.
The issue is that she used actual lines and scenes from Harry Potter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and other sources of media, in her fic, and them copied them claife her published book because she liked it.
Pre-review October 30, Because nothing says Halloween like reading one of the most controversial fanfics of all time. The practice of hiding quotes from other media sources in the text of the story was well-known and accepted by some of Claire’s casssandra, [ cassandar needed ] and it was used as a way of engaging the fans on a mailing list the story was posted to.
Draco looked over at her, and, without even pausing to ask himself what on earth he was doing, drobbed his Firebolt and his Quidditch robes, grabbed Hermione, and kissed her. May 07, Farseer rated it it was amazing.
So she copied or used similar ideas from sections from her own fanfiction? I have enjoyed having my work clalre here, and I didn’t make this decision lightly.
Another major issue, related to the use of pop culture dialogue, was that Cassandra Clare reproduced concepts, rough scenes, descriptive phrases and dialogue from several fantasy novels. No hateful speech or witch hunting. Hermione dissolved into giggles. Not the grudge-holding, act-before-you-think Cassadnra from canon. I quite enjoyed it.
Romance, mistaken identities, Really Cunning Plans, evil bake sales, a love triangle, and snogs galore. Open Preview Cassamdra a Problem? I read the Draco Trilogy long after fanfiction left the leatherpants! This version of Draco is so much better than the cowardly wimp in the HP series.
