A bunch of these tropes look like they belong in the YMMV or Trivia sections, but I can't move them because of the lock.

So a friend brought this series to my attention today as something that is actually WORSE than Twilight, which is very hard to believe. However looking over stuff, I can believe it.

There is one thing about the series, and it doesn't look like it's Artistic License, but more of a lack of research. Here it is:

"One of the main enemies in the series is named Abaddon, and is the son of Apollyon. Both Apollyon and Abaddon are names for the Biblical fiend that will bring about the end times, as the famed lord of the bottomless pit. Now for the fun part: Both names are for the same fiend, just in different languages."

Also, let's point the first sign of failure, just because we can.

She began her entire story with a set of ellipses. There. Now we can leave it alone.

I heard from a youtube commenter that the film would come out in September, though I can only call that "not bloody likely." When it comes out, I suggest all tropers inclined exchange youtube accounts and splice together footage from our videos to create a giant review made by tropers why were just pissed off. Not many of us will go along with our idea (I will, so long as I can find a gorram camera.) Alternatively, tropers not so inclined or those not very confident in their reviewing or acting ability can send DV Ds to people from That Guy With The Glasses. Who's with me?!

There's no way the movie will really be made, but if it is I'll do whatever I can!

It's now the end of October, and no movie is in sight. Might as well be the first to laugh!

Apparently, they really do plan on making a movie. Also, she ripped whole passages from The Bible, though since the Bible is public domain, it probably doesn't count as actual plagiarism. Still made of fail, though.

We might think about adding Rouge Angles of Satin, too. The spelling isn't as bad as the punctuation fail, but it's bad enough.

If it's uncredited, it's plagiarism regardless of whether it's in the public domain or not.

To bring some quick clarification from Arrant Pedant Man: copying passages from the Bible, a public-domain work, is plagiarism, but it's not illegal.

I understand how this article is locked so that Ms. Tesch can't edit this page to her favour as she usually tries to do, but there might be a few changes neccesary, namely in the segment pertaining to Swanki VY's video review; first off, it's not so much a review of the books themselves moreso as a critiqued observation on her promotional tactics, and secondly, the original video was pulled and has been edited and re-uploaded under the following URL:

Somewhat amusing are the Amazon reviews, one of the few places Tesch can't cherry-pick or censor them. Some of them are downright hilarious. (Perhaps most hilarious are the two from people obviously on Tesch's payroll: the 'Leah D' person is credited on Tesch's site as her editor.) Given how horrific the spelling, grammar, punctuation, characterization, internal logic... hell, how horrible everything about the books is, it doesn't speak well of that person's skills as an editor. Or a speaker of the English language.

I have to wonder how long it will take her to realize that she's Giftedly Bad rather than actually gifted. She can only tell herself all her detractors are 'haters' for so long, one would think, and I wonder what will happen when Reality Ensues and somebody finally hammers it into her head that she's not the genius her parents and friends tell her she is.

I think she already knows it and she is just too proud/embarassed to admit that even before herself. She can't be that blind to, say, the Amazon reviews, the hilarious sporkings of her books (Based on which the Maradonia ebooks seem to have been edited), or the failure of her Indiegogo campaign. On the other hand, there are, of course, people who are just that delusional...
