After two weeks of a blissful hiatus, I’m now back in the fucking saddle again to take on the Queen Bitch herself, the one, the only, Cassandra Clare! And I’m taking off the kid gloves and donning on my crash helmet to spork this piece of excrement disguised as an article. This article was written by New York Times journalist, Penelope Green. Not only does Green have the nerve to call I-Plagiarize-For-Shits-And-Giggles Cassandra Clare the queen of the YA world when other authors such as J.K Rowling Julie Kagawa, Rachael Mead, or Tamora Pierce deserve the title much more. It t completely didn’t even at all address Sherrilyn Kenyon’s current civil case against Clare for plagiarism. It also didn’t address Clare’s hateful attitude towards the ‘Shadowhunters’ television show and it’s fans, and it sure in the hell didn’t bring up all the problematic shit that was in the books.
I usually don’t spork articles. The last time I sporked a fandom creator’s article, I almost punted my computer out of the window in sure unadulterated rage. So now I just mostly comment on the articles, and just slap on a witty gif on it and keep on rolling. However, after this read article, I knew I couldn’t just not spork it. So get your crash helmets on WTFers, because this post is going to be full of Gifs, Memes, and Rage. You have been warned!

Regular Text: The Article
Cassandra Clare Created a Fantasy Realm and Aims to Maintain Her Rule
One morning in early March, Kyli Ledesma, a 20-year-old barista from San Diego, woke up at 3:30 so she could drive to Los Angeles to secure a copy of Cassandra Clare’s newest book, “Lady Midnight,” which would be for sale at Barnes & Noble at the Grove, a high-end mall, when it opened at 9. Yet she was not the first at the door.
[Um? Am I supposed to think that’s so special? Seriously, people camped out for days for Deathly Hallows and more recently the newest E.L. James Book, ‘Grey.’ I’m not impressed with this at all. And personally, I never understood the need to camp out for anything like that.]
Nor was Lydia Whitman, 15, who pulled in at 5 a.m., driven from Agoura Hills, Calif., by her mother to earn the 12th place in line.
[Again, this is supposed to be an example of how Clare’s fans love her books so much, and how popular her books are; when in fact Clare is not even a household name. People don’t even have to read J.K. Rowlings’s, E.L. James’s or Stephanie Meyer’s books to know who they are. I can pretty much guarantee if you pull a random person off the streets, and ask them if they know who Cassandra Clare was; they wouldn’t even know her! Also, I’m not impressed by Lydia Whitman. Why? Because as I said earlier, I have personally known people who flew across not only the U.S. but to other countries at the chance to meet their favorite authors. This doesn’t show me at all that Clare is the Queen of the YA genre. Personally, I would say that title should go to J,K Rowling, who is superior to Clare in every way.]
Sales of the book were capped at 400, but the urgency propelling Ms. Ledesma, Ms. Whitman and the rest of Ms. Clare’s fans was that the first 100 purchasers would get a seat that evening at a question-and-answer session with Ms. Clare and the actors from “Shadowhunters,” the television show that has been made from her series.
[So basically this article was written before Clare showed her entire ass on Twitter then? Good to know! Also, this really once again shows just how two-faced Clare really is. Clare did promo with the Shadowhunter’s cast to promote her new book ‘Lady Midnight’, and then weeks later she stabbed them in the back by publicly criticizing the show on twitter, and even directing her fans to a petition that wanted to fire the writers because the show dared to be so different from the books
By the way, I would just love to get a one on one Q&A session with Clare, because I have more than a few questions. Why did Clare write Alec as biphobic? Why does Clary hate women so much? Why did she think writing Jace as an unrepentant sociopath with no redeeming qualities was such a good idea? Why in the hell did she think rape, and incest is such a great topic to put in a book target towards tweens, and pre-teens?]
A tour for Ms. Clare has more in common with that of a country music star than an author. She travels on a bus emblazoned with her name, and hundreds, even thousands, of fans may show up at her events.
[LOL? No, Clare doesn’t have anything in common with a country music star. What she has is delusions of grandeur. Really, this just proves what I have always been saying from the get-go: Clare doesn’t love the writing for the writing’s sake. No, it’s more than obvious that writing for Clare is the quickest and most convenient way for her to gain money and fame.
And don’t get me started on that fucking bus! This is just Clare’s way of saying, “You see everyone? I’m famous! I’m a star!” Do you see J.K. Rowling with all her buckets of money rolling up in a tour bus? No, because despite Rowlings many faults she still has some humility. Clare is an arrogant twat who thinks just because her books was somewhat successful that we should just down on our knees and worship her. The bus is just a physical manifestation of her massive ego. ]
