Possible Movie in the Future for The Mortal Instruments Series

August 28th, 2009

Less than a week ago, Cassandra Clare announced to her adoring fans on her LiveJournal blog, that The Mortal Instrument books could be on the big screen soon. Well, the rights have been taken up by Bob Shaye film line called Unique Features. As Casssandra pointed out:

Now, a book series being optioned doesn’t mean a film is being made right now or is definitely going to be made at all — it means that the studio or production company in question is developing the books as a film project — right now they’ve nailed down financing and a screenwriter (I don’t know who that is yet) and are working towards the next stages in the development project. It is, however, an important step in the movie-making process, so I feel like it’s okay to be excited about it.

Cassandra also reiterates this information in the FAQ section for The Mortal Instruments website.

Despite Cassandra Claire’s controversial past, as documented by FanHistory, she had proved resilient and cleaned up her act. With all the fan support and perseverance – to get to this point is a great feat.

Here are some links to some fan reactions:
WHOOOOHOOOOO!!!!

Re: Movies That are Going to Suck: Part Deux

Of course, there are some mixed reactions already towards the idea of a movie, but obviously there needs to be some huge congratulations sent out to Cassandra!

Race Fail 2009/Mammoth Fail 2009

May 19th, 2009

We’ve largely been watching Race Fail and Mammoth Fail from the sidelines, trying to document what is going on and provide a good resource for people who want information about the topic in as neutrally as possible. We’ve occasionally been checking our search referrer keywords to know where to focus on adding links and out of curiosity as to what people interested in the situation were really interested in. We were intrigued and thought that our blog readers might be too. The chart below includes keyterms related to Race Fail and Mammoth Fail for the period between April 19 and May 18, 2009.

Things that kind of surprised me:

  • People were looking for information on Cassandra Claire‘s involvement in race fail. (I don’t think she’s participated.)
  • Interest is still high regarding Elizabeth Bear’s involvement in race fail, despite the precipitating event being several months old.
  • Interest is not higher in regards to Patricia Wrede and Lois McMaster Bujold.
  • People are still interested in Will Shetterly‘s involvement in race fail.
  • There is interest in finding out more about a boycott of Tor as a result race fail.
  • People don’t seem as interested in what members of the fan community like vee-ecks are saying so much as they are about the professional authors.

    Top fandoms for January 4, 5, 6 on Fan History

    January 7th, 2009

    This is just really interesting to see. The list of popular fandom articles on Fan History rarely seems to coordinate with top fan fiction fandoms, nor with what is on television. I would speculate that we won’t see that until we probably quadruple our traffic and have better links to Fan History from out visitors. :) At the moment, it probably very much relates to which fandom articles we plug.

    Most popular Fan History wiki articles by month in 2008!

    December 17th, 2008

    In addition to top ten articles regarding content, a number of blogs and sites have been doing a month by month listing of their top posts and articles. As we’re all about riding the trends, though this obviously isn’t a trend in fandom (just in social media as far we can tell), we’re jumping on too! Sadly, we’re not as interesting as other sites and blogs. This is a bit of a snooze fest. (But continue reading anyway! Please?)

    January 2008
    Cassandra Claire: This was our most popular article in January. The second most popular article had half as many views. The wiki was pretty much known for this article at this point and trying to downplay it wouldn’t be successful for us until her popularity decreased and interest in the whole of the wiki increased. That would take a couple of months though.

    February 2008
    Cassandra Claire: Still the most popular article but the page views on the second most popular article, Draco/Hermione, that month were up and the gap between the two was smaller.

    March 2008
    Draco/Hermione: The article went from 1,400 page views in February to 4,800 in March. We got plugged by a really awesome Draco/Hermione fansite, did a few plugs of our own on various LiveJournal communities and elsewhere. This helped blow away the Cassandra Claire which had almost an additional thousand page views from February 2008.

    April 2008
    Cassandra Claire: Back to being the top article in April. At this point, we were busy working on this more practively and with a better staff than we had in months.

    May 2008
    Draco/Hermione: Back on top baby. This article was our most popular for May 2008. Our search engine on the site also saw increase action, with more searches being done than ever before.

    June 2008
    Cassandra Claire: Down from previous highs for views per month, it still came in as the most popular article.

    July 2008
    Draco/Hermione: And that popular Harry Potter pairing was back on top. I promise, if this list is yoru first exposure to Fan History, we aren’t just into Harry Potter. The wiki is more diverse than that. (Our SEO just became optimized around those two phrases… It wasn’t our fault. Really!)

    August 2008
    Draco/Hermione: Er. Yeah. Them again in August 2008. But great news! For the first time, our second place article was something not Cassandra Claire. The second most popular article was Sakura Lemon Fan-Fiction Archive which had 1,675 article views that month. Awesomeness.

    September 2008
    Draco/Hermione: Yeah. September 2008 is pretty much the same as August 2008 with fewer views on our two most popular articles.

    October 2008
    Draco/Hermione: Third verse, same as the first. We need more diversity and interest in our articles that are the top for the month. Help us out by improving some articles and plugging them because this write up has become boring with its predictability. on the upside, by tis month, Fan History has accomplished its goal of being less known for being about Cassandra Claire. (Now we’re known for other things. Some of them untrue. We’d rather not have changed what we are now known for if we could do things over.)

    November 2008
    Draco/Hermione: Did you even have to guess? Sakura Lemon Fan-Fiction Archive came in second with very little change in the amount of times the articles were viewed per month.

    December 2008
    Draco/Hermione: So far this month, that continues to be our most popular article. On a bright side, Twilight is our second most viewed article this month. It is nice to have a change their. Plug the article. Turn December around. Help keep the Twilight article at number two.
