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 I’m talking about…)

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 it’s still very harmless here compared to what often happens IRL.)

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
