So she had a naughty streak even when she was younger. I suppose thats quite normal for many kids. She just got the opportunity to do something a lot bigger then getting into a fight.
Its also worth noting that she's barely trying to hide her misdeeds. I think she wants attention.
Also thats a very creatively-lacking school.
Sure, you've got a sweet smile, but how many of your peers were watching the argument because they were hoping to see that fight break out? It's sloppy to allow there to be witnesses who might testify against you.
True...but this story is about trying to redeem these guys. So I think it’s reasonable for me to believe that her backstory is gonna have some redeemable elements to her character.
Also, A LOT of stuff is unoriginal these days - that doesn’t automatically make it bad. It’s the execution that counts, and so far the story itself is being executed in a very likable manner, so I think it’s safe to say that whatever road they take with Cozy, it‘ll be fantastic one way or the other.
Finally...how is being an “ass for the sake of it“ any more original than her having some baggage? I’ll admit they don’t do that nearly as much anymore, but y’all can’t tell me that’s an original idea.
Agreed, I'm currently reading a great fanfiction that consists of several semi-connected mystery stories, one of which is almost exactly like a similar case from the annals of the great Sherlock Holmes, the author even admits to the similarity.
If we want to follow the logic of "only original ideas are good ideas" then little or nothing in at least the past several hundred years has been a good idea. As long as the story is coherent, and enjoyable in some fashion, it's good enough for me.
I agree, I read and write fanfics as well. And one thing I hate about when the reviewer about originality. Nothing is original, every show has cliches and overused tropes.
Nothing is truly original anymore.
There's this one comic that I read about how Cozy Glow was despicable to her parents, specifically her mother. What I noted is that it's AFTER she has her Cutie Mark. Perhaps how she got it influenced her to become evil? Like she saw more benefit of being evil than being nice or good.
