Hey guys!

I have a custom labbit hand painted to look like Watchmen's Ozymandias for sale on ebay. He's a very happy labbit, and he even includes two mouthpieces! He would very much like a home with one of you. He may or may not destroy it in efforts to achieve world peace.

Rule 63
whystherum
Hi,

Are you aware of rule 63?  http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=rule%2063
Rule 63 is a rule of the internet that reads as follows: "For any given male character, there is a female version of that character."

I have noticed an interesting trend with rule 63 and Watchmen, there is a wide variety of Rorshach and Nite Owl fics, but very few Adrienne Veidt. which leads me to my question.

What would you think of Adrien if he were a woman? Would you expect him to be written differently? Certainly in the fics the writers show how a female Veidt would have to act more ruthless and yet be seen to act more smoothly/less assertively

I wonder why there is so little fanfic about her....

Is he a sociopath?

I lurk on livejournal, and have noticed an interesting trend where Adrian is labelled as a sociopath. Is this something you agree with?
On the one hand he can be glib in his rationale of how he makes his decisions, and the "I made myself feel every death" somehow doesn't feel quite heartfelt...  and te whole "I did it!" seems to be about him the hero rather than the people he's "saving"

... on the other hand he does what he does to save the world.

So what do you think, egomaniac hero or sociopath?

Which way does he swing his bat?

OK, movieverse! Adrian has quite clearly shown which way he swings his bat.... but Graphic Novel Adrian. What do you think? Is he as asexual as your favourite cuddly uncle, or is there something more sinister going on?

There's no clue I can see in the novel about his preferences. What do you think?

This is not to instigate any sort of war and I believe we're all sensible enough to not engage in one anyway. ;) But mod, feel free to delete this if inappropriate. ^^;;

I am wondering, what are your thoughts about the differences between comicverse!Adrian and movieverse!Adrian? Any form of opinions welcomed, on any aspect of the man himself - be it the personality or the demeanour and actions. (Okay not so much the absolute senseless, to keep to the comm guidelines - no omgliekhe'ssohot comments. LOL.)

This came across my mind as, to be truthful, I am introduced to Watchmen via the movie. While watching the movie, I am indifferent to all characters, but upon reading the comic, my heart goes out to Adrian (comicverse). I will say that I do not not like the movieverse!Adrian - it is just that he comes across as a slightly different person - hence, the prompt. I'd like to hear other people's thoughts on this matter. :)

First post, I suppose.
