Jace is no Draco!! Draco isn't even funny. And Draco isn't hot. Ginny makes way fewer rash decisions than Clary does and Clary is so much more annoying.

I know Cassie Clare started off writing fanfic but her story doesn't really parallel to HP, does it? If you notice, lots of author's base their characters off of other characters from books, just as author's steal some ideas from each other and incorporate it into their story. For example: dystopias and love triangles.

Well the characters don't have to be identical...

Writing a dystopian novel isn't stealing or borrowing....its just a genre

Yeah but the first person who wrote a dystopian could claim that


message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

Not necessarily because every book has to fall into a genre and just because someone writes a book in a genre doesn't mean anyone is stealing it

Yes but the first person to create the genre could still argue that case! It's not stealing per say, just copying or mimicking or utilizing the same traits.


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

Then that would mean almost every single book made is stealing or copying someone elses stuff and that's not true.

Amazingggggggg!

Well it's not really stealing, it's just using the same techniques or ideas. They add different features and aspects, but some of the things are the same.


message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

There has to be some of the same features in order for it to fall into a genre. For example, dystopian books are set in a futuristic world with a controlling government and then there's the person who rises to fight the system or whatevs...if you have a book that's dystopia, it's not copying but you have to have certain things in the book that make the genre

well what about love triangles? that's a feature that lots of books have.


message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

Again, it's not necessarily copying anyone any more than writing a book with romance that has no love triangle
