  1. And apparently she named and loosely based the shirtless werewolf guy on one of her brothers. Yeah.

    The Meyer family reunions must be quite interesting.

  2. *summons thread from the darkest depths of kiwi farms*

    (btw why is this thread about two seprate, unrelated cows? :?: shit's autistic. someone fix it. )

    Well....lookie who's getting sued for honest-to-god plagerism? Miss Cassandra Clare sticks again, this time with actual profiting from the works of others!

    http://www.courtneymilan.com/cc-complaint/1-main.pdf

    here's the legal dossier, but in laymans terms, Clare just plain ol' took someone's work and published it as her own. Funny thing is, I had just seen her one of her new books on kindle and was wondering how her writing suddenly got better. Silly me thought she might have attended a writing seminar or something....

    She literally just highlight/copypastes this other woman's work, changed the word "Dark" to "Shadow" and called it a day. Some tigers cows never change their stripes.

  3. Wait... so did Clare actually write anything over the course of the past decade making her entire career been one long con of plagiarism? Or did she just outright steal the concept of Shadow Hunters from someone else and then write a terrible series around it?

  4. That is a good question. I don't have the answer for it right now, but I'm going to make a tentative guess and say she's always been skating right on the edge of plagiarism, changing just enough that no one could really say anything, you know? She must have gotten lazy in the last few years. It sounds like everything from 2013 onwards has basically been this other woman's work.

    Oh! I found an example. This is what clare does. Yeah, like I thought, she'll just make juuuuust enough changes for it to fly under the radar:

    Notice how the first example not only describes how a character looks, it makes statement about loss of innocence/childishness when a boy becomes a man and how said character subverts it. Of course, Clare just takes the whole thing literally.....

  6. She wrote it all. She hasn't done any line-to-line copying since her fanfic days. The charge was that her work was so close to someone else's as to result in confusion (particularly due to changes in the way her stuff's marketed bringing it closer to the other person's thing). It looks like kind of a borderline case. After all, you can't really copyright "people who defend humans from supernatural forces." But Clare's shift to referring to the series by the "Shadowhunters" title brings it much closer in branding to the "dark-hunters" series.

    http://thecelebritycafe.com/2016/02/cassandra-clare-sued-copyright-infringement/
    The linked article above includes a link to some court documents describing the series' similarities, though I'm not sure if any of it really constitutes plagiarism per se.

    Clare's attorneys have also claimed that at least some of the supposed similarities are made up.

  7. Didn't Clare also write some sort of Ron and Ginny incest fic that was actually titled "The Mortal Instruments"? I distinctly remember reading about that online, I have to find the source...

    Cassandra Clare, 43, born Judith Rumelt and now fondly referred to by her detractors as Casserole Clam, is best known for writing a teen fantasy novel series called The Mortal Instruments. The first book was written in 2007, and since then she’s written 14 fucking books in the same universe and nothing else. They got made into a really unpopular flop of a movie in 2013, and then became an ABC Family show (called Shadowhunters) in 2016.
    However, Clare is best known as a plagiarist, cyberbully, predator, and ogre.

    As it so happens, Clare got her start as a Fanfiction writer around 2000-2001, writing 895,000 words of Harry Potter Draco/Ginny smut. (If you’re curious, part one of the fanfic “trilogy” is here). Keep in mind that this woman was in her early thirties while writing this.

    Despite being one of the most popular authors in the Fanfiction community at the time, she quickly came under fire, getting herself banned and blacklisted due to plagiarism and bullying.
    A good concise summary of the plagiarism story.
    And here’s the full account with all the (quite frankly confusing) drama.
    One section is definitely worth a read, though; it shows her borrowing lines from Buffy, Black Adder, Friends, and more without citations. She also steals large chunks of text and scenes from books.
    [​IMG]
    The scummiest part is that she primarily plagiarized from an out-of-print series, which she lied about getting permission for, so that nobody would find out.

    Okay, but no big deal, since it’s just Fanfiction, right? Well, Casserole’s Harry Potter fic got big enough to land her a book deal. She directly turned the fic into The Mortal Instruments series, E.L. James style. Here are the main characters of The Mortal Instruments, Ginny/Clary and Draco/Jace.
    [​IMG]
    Ginny/Clary and Draco/Jace are gifted teens with magical abilities. They use their magic wands to fight magical creatures and stop an evil wizard named Voldemort/Valentine. And so on.

    This article tries debunking the Harry Potter comparisons, but more importantly admits how a backstory Clare wrote for Draco was reused word-for-word to become the backstory of Jace. The character makes the same speech about their past in the books, movies, and now the show. So, there’s blatant recycling of entire scenes.

    If this isn’t enough plagiarism for you, Casserole was recently sued by Sherrilyn Kenyon, the author of a series called Dark-Hunters. Kenyon’s series began in 2002, five years before Clare’s. This section of the lawsuit is seriously a fascinating read. Some of it’s a reach, but some is just uncanny…
    [​IMG]

    HOW SHE'S CRAZY

    This part is why I'd say she's a Lolcow rather than just a regular shitty person.
    Although most of her drama is in the past, Casserole still chimps out all the time. And now that season 2 of the Shadowhunters show is about to begin, more is to be expected.

    First off, she is a huge bully. Here is one account of her bullying (there are numerous). Some of the behaviors mentioned:
    • Internet stalking.
    • Obsessive wiki editing.
    • Using lawyers to threaten people into deleting stuff.
    • Using people’s IPs to call them and threaten them, or having the police threaten them.
    • Getting people to gang up/turn on her enemies.
    • Saying “Tell her that her parents should have aborted her.”
    • Calling someone’s university police to try and get them expelled during their exams.

    And lately there’s:
    • Sending fans to attack the Shadowhunters writers and try to get them fired.
    [​IMG]
    Following the backlash from this tweet, the showrunner passive aggressively spammed positive retweets and likes about the show and how it improved upon the books.
    • Openly shitting on the show.
    [​IMG]
    This refers to a plotline unique to the show. She even referenced her salt in her newest book; a character exclaims “it’s not an arranged marriage, that would be gross!”
    Unfortunately, Clare forgot that she did actually make arranged marriage a thing in her books three years ago.
    • Blocking fans for not asspatting her.
    There are numerous stories on Tumblr and Twitter of fans asking Clare legitimate questions, usually polite, and getting blocked.
    [​IMG]

    Example of her typical brand of passive aggression:
    (Referencing a character from the show)
    [​IMG]

    What’s frustrating is that despite dissing the show, she’s more than happy to pretend to like and support it when a) it’s getting publicity or b) presents an opportunity to promote her new books. Despite barely being involved with the show’s creation, she always shows up at conventions and other appearances with the cast. After having called the show shite again and again.
    Clare in 2014, pre-TV series: "I won’t answer questions about the gay characters’ sex lives because that is homophobic. They are not a fetish."
    Clare in 2016, when the gays become the hottest TV couple: "I’m writing porn of their “first time”! (And monetizing it... For charity?)"

    OTHER CRIMES

    Here’s some other miscellaneous grievances people have with Clare:
    • Abusive relationship fetish. i.e. a black female character gets back together with her white male abuser. Tumblr loved that one.
    • Yaoi fetish. Wants Aragorn and Legolas to fuck.
    • Sucks at writing.
    • The main character is a self insert and it’s dumb. Clary = Clare, both are “gorgeous” redheads. Clary’s best friend/kinda boyfriend is a Jew named Simon Lewis, and Clare’s husband is a Jew named Josh Lewis.
    • The way she writes female characters indicates clear spitefulness towards attractive and sexually confident women.
    • Fat and ugly.
    I want to end this on a high note, so here’s some examples of the cast and crew of her show dissing her.
    From the star of the show:
    [​IMG]

    Blatantly left out of the show's creative choices, and salty:
    [​IMG]

    The showrunner shamelessly cropped her out of this group photo:
    [​IMG]

    I know this op is fucking ridiculous, but I noticed that nobody's been able to find a comprehensive Cassandra Clare post with evidence anywhere, so that's what I went for.

  11. I think I remember reading about this tugboat somewhere else. I think that she might have been discussed on an earlier iteration of /cow/, ironically enough.

    Yeah, a lot of these bookworm autists have freaky incest fantasies, I will never understand it.

    We actually do have a thread on her, but the OP isn't that great

  14. She seems like a big plagiarist, a big cyberbully, a big salt mine and, well, just big in general.
    She also seems to be super full of herself.
    Crap, can't write anything without making it sounds like a big joke.

  16. If anyone wants to take one for the team, there's this...



    I personally couldn't make it past the two minute mark, or whenever it is she waddles out onto the stage. Though that approximation of male (Picoult's son I think?) is almost as cringe inducing. Got a vibe that Picoult herself was a bit on the embarrassed side to be there, though that might be wishful thinking. Possibly at a publisher's insistence? Maybe I'll revisit this one down the line.

    I've actually read a few of the books, though not the fanfic. They're generic, predictable and altogether tedious. I think the most memorable bit of whichever book I read it in was the poetry at the start of each chapter by a notorious Victorian era bondage freak.

  17. Hah, good for her for bashing that Dark hunters crap author. That cunt sued GW for naming a space marine chapter with the same generic name as "dark hunters."

    How can she win that, and GW not the space marine lawsuit? I mean either both are wrong or right. If Gw can not copyright a generic sci fi term, why can she a generic edgelord term? Dark hunters is like one of the most cliched name for a group of evil stalking baddies. At least Tolkien had the class not to copyright "Rangers" .

    So this fat cow at least did a little good!
