Um...so? Yes, different stories follow the same models, and the models themselves have been in place for thousands of years. Did you just now figure that out?
August 12th, 2005
(0)
No, Cronos. There is more lore Philospher's Stone than in that stupid anime. Not to mention the fact that it was the "Sorcerer" Stone's ORIGINAL title.

Oh yeah, look at me: I post things cause I think I know more than everyone. It's just a funny ytmnd! YTMNDs have been around for thousands of years, did you just figure that out now?
(0)
This is beyond stupid. The sentences are so vague and impertinent that you could fit any two stories together with that much generality. Hagrid's distinguishing feature is his beard? give me a break.

Oh man, I think EVERYTHING on here is unoriginal. I have not seen one idea here that supposedly someone had first. *BTW- what I just said is copyright.

Cronos, you f*cking wap. You know that the Philospher's stone was not created for f*cking Full Metal Alchemist, right? Please tell me you do. The original title was Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Tards.

Hey exqva, do me a favor. Take a moment and think, long and hard, about how many times, in the history of mankind, someone has wrote a plot for something.
August 12th, 2005
(0)
Now I want you to think even harder, but don't hurt yourself, ok? Think about how mathematically improbable it is that someone can write a completely original story, that has no similarities to any other story, at all. Think you can do that?

-1 for "Wilderness of Suburbia." -1 for "WISE, bearded Hagrid." -1 for "Hogwart's." -1 for "Darth Vader, whom we know murdered his aunt and uncle." -30,000 for omitting every single unique concept in each work and then acting like it's an am

I agree with the downvoters who are saying that mythical tales do have similar elements so the people who are saying potter was copied from star wars are f*cking idiots. But the YTMND is still fairly original and funny so it gets a 5.
August 16th, 2005

I like all the dipsh*ts saying "omg she ripped off starwars!". Did you not read the aprt about the HERO'S JOURNEY? Have you f*cking heard of JOSEPH f*ckING CAMPELL? Props to exvqa for not being retarded.

Kind of funny. I assume that Cronos is just being a troll, but I'll repeat that the Philosopher's Stone from the first HP and FMA are based on the same myth. It was only Sorcerer's Stone in one country.

Actually, the book is called "HP and the Philosopher's Stone" in England. Star Wars has its uneditted versions, CSS has CS 1.6, and Harry Potter has the British version. It's just the way the major fans like it. Very nice comparison.

Felt too "set up". The whole thing at the last half tried too much to connect the plots together, mostly because the whole dqueditch was only part of the story, while it's the forces of evil which is the other and the Star Wars plot is just 1 straight thing.

There are only about 10 different plots and they were all done in Greek plays 2000+ years ago
