Fandom vs. Reality by Tenshi-no-Hikari Fandom vs. Reality by Tenshi-no-Hikari
I made this comic to show a strange observation (and because this theme is very personal to me...and I guess to some of you, too).

Characters like the ones mentioned in this comic are extremely loved in the fandom while real people like that aren't. They often even have their lives made hell by fellow humans. Because, as sad as it is, society hates the ones who are different. They are picked on and become social outcasts.
I think, especially L is a typical example, since he shows signs of the asperger's syndrome. (Those who know what that is will know what Iím talking aboutÖ)

I guess, this is because in fiction, people get to know the characters from the inside and learn to appreciate them 'as a whole' but in real life, people often see only the outer side and label them as 'strange', 'freaks', etc.

Btw, the guys in panel 5 are supposed to be (young) Snape's and L's 'real life equivalents'.
And the shallow and hypocritical behaviour of the bitches girls in this comic is meant to represent the 'offending side' (I know itís still very harmless here compared to what often happens IRL.)

Geeeeh, as an aspie, I definitely find that I'm probably one of those "fugly nerds" who is the victim of such a mindset other people have. Boys always say they want this shy, quiet girlfriend who doesn't care much about her appearance and is this book nerd who would rather stay at home and read than party or something. I don't know female characters like that boys lust after, since I don't really follow what's popular with guys, so I can't name any. But I like to think I'm kind of like that shy, quiet girl, and yet all throughout high school and middle school, boys thought I was gross or would rather make fun of me than much of anything else. I really hate that "I want a shy, quiet nerd girlfriend" mindset for such a reason. Mostly because of my experience, but also because guys probably just want that kind of girl so that they could fuck her ad have her all to themselves. Problem with that is, how do they even know she wants to fuck them? :T

And then there's goddamn Loki. Don't even get me started on that asshole. He's a destructive prick all because of his "uWu sad backstory woobie just wants father's luv" and girls still love him. Yet, here I am getting shit for having trouble socializing and not eating sauce on pasta. You'll accept and even feel sympathy for a guy who tried to destroy an entire city, yet you shun and get angry with people who are only ever doing things that may inconvenience you (and aren't even trying to!). 

Loki: Aha, my father didn't give me the power of the ultimate weapon that I'm not strong enough to handle anyway and didn't tell me that I'm adopted, so I'm going to get my brother arrested and then try to ENSLAVE ALL OF NEW YORK AND DEMAND THAT EVERYONE KNEEL TO MY FEET!

People: Aw, Loki. It's ok sweet bb everything's ok we luv u mwuh sweet woobie cinnamon roll. <3 <3 <3

Me: Hey, guys. I'm really sorry if I get snippy or aggravated sometimes. It's just that I'm so used to getting pushed around all the time, not to mention sometimes I feel like no one's really listening to me. Sometimes, because of that, I just lash out at the wrong times and I'm really sorry. I don't mean to hurt anyone. I'm really trying to control it, and sometimes I have trouble reading social cues, so-

People: OH MY GOD, NO ONE CARES! NO ONE HAS TO CATER TO YOU SO JUST SUCK IT UP! YOU'RE SUCH A WHINY BITCH!

So, I pretend to hate him because he's a bad villain, but the truth is that I'm just salty about how defensive his fangirls are over him. And eeeeeyyeeeeeah, I know he's fictional and I really shouldn't compare myself to a character who's a god, but... Look, I'm allowed to be salty. Just let me have my fun and take my anger out on the horse mommy.

L never struck me much as Asperger's (being an Aspie myself) but more a slightly stronger variety of Autism. Though it would explain his obsession, which I can relate to. Though his insane mind that is similar to Light's... can't really say that has something to do with Asperger's (though if it was, it would explain, since I can follow Light's train of thoughts pretty well)

And yes, it's most likely because we get to see the personality behind the... strange... exterior. Which is pretty neat, though it would be cool for it to happen in real life, too. Maybe because the socially awkward people tend to have problems expressing themselves well, so it makes it more difficult and take more time to see what's behind the appearance.

I definitely see exactly what you are saying with this(a very serious message too), and find the comic funny in-and-of-itself. Although in all fairness, those guys have neither magical powers or an artifact of death shaped like a book.=P

I've noticed that about a few characters that remind me of myself.
It surprises me because I usually love those characters because they ARE nerds. Though most intelligent guys are either too shy to notice that they are smart or completely full of themselves. I need to develop nerd radar.

This is so true these girls just want the looks even though another argument can be that that's nontrivial what the series is about but I understand shows like free to be fangirld because it's not deep it plain out fan service and the fangirls what their supposed to do that is made strictly for them

Ah that is so true ;3;'  I have been labelled as a weirdo pretty often since early years, so I became rather shy towards people in real, in the closest environment, but I always try to give others chance and never judge anyone. I think that's all I can do to be a good person, I think that's what it is about more or less.
It's a really good thing that You touched this topic, showed it in such a way, You surely deserve respect for that! You've done good job!
And once again, Your drawing style is very very nice to look at :)

Snape was based on Rowling's Chemistry teacher and, let's face it, L is just a particularly good detective.
