The School For Good and Evil

Forum-Index General Discussion The School For Good and Evil

The School For Good and Evil.

The Tower of Evil hosts aspiring villains and villainesses while the Tower of Good hosts future Queens and Kings.

A witch who abhors pink is mistakenly guided to the Tower of Good while a beautiful princess is locked into the Tower for Evil. Once, they were best friends. Now, they're separated by complex concepts. They try to reunite since they were each other's first, and only friend. As they navigate their new world, they learn more about the other then they ever could have back in their home village. Will the truth tear them apart or bring them closer together?

One might wonder if this is just another fairy tale.

It is not.

The series challenges, and defies all traditional fairy tales.

Princes do not rescue princesses. Princess's rescue princes. Then fart on him.
Chivalrous concepts are rejected in favor of feminism.
There is no love-at-first-sight. There is hate-at-first-sight, though.
Even Princes need to be saved.
Even villains can love.
Friendships prevail.
Friendships shatter.

The very notion of good and evil are heavily challenged.
Who is good?
Who is bad?
Is someone only good, or only bad?

Sometimes the truth is obscure.

In a story about friendship, The School For Good and Evil is unique as it embraces modern, democratic concepts including, and not limited to, gay characters. There is even possibly a real werewolf in the story. I doubt the future movie will reflect that, though.

So, how about it?

Intrigued?

Already read it?

For anyone who has read the novels, I certainly wouldn't mind chatting about them!!! I have only read the first two books, though. I have yet to read the third installment, and, obviously, the fourth book because I don't think it's been released yet.

Anyways, I'm totally into the novels, and, since this is a general discussion forum, I figured I might see if anyone else knows them too. So, I, uh, hope my post being here is fine.

hi hello I love that series!! I've only read the first 2 books, and I've kinda skimmed through the third but I don't own it agh. I didn't have enough time to complete it. I'd love to chat with you and maybe roleplay about it if you'd like!! <3

Well, I don't know if I can capture the essence of the characters well enough to roleplay them. These characters, from a writers perspective, are quite complex. I am unsure of my own ability to roleplay them. If you want to judge my writing ability, you can find my writing at www.archiveofourown.org which is a website where people post fanfics. I did just write a fanfic for The School For Good and Evil. However, no one has Kudo's it, (liked it) nor have they commented on it, which tells me that I did not write it as well as I thought I did. Regardless, you're free to read it, and make your own opinion, if you want to. I can send a link over. I have wrote other fanfics, but I normally write unpleasant stories that I would advise you to be wary of. So if you don't mind, I'll just send you a private message and we can talk about the books there so we don't spoil the story, nor the characters for others who might pop into the forum.

All 3 books rock.

And, maybe nobody has had read it? Just keep writing and get yourself out there!! People'll read it soon enough.

congrats, you've reached the end of my post

I hope book three will be great. I am eager to read it. I just have to procure money to buy it. Not that it's expensive. Abebooks.com is where the thrifty book collectors shop for a reason, after all.

Thank you for the words of encouragement. I have to admit though, people have read my works. I know because, there's a "hit" count, where, every time someone clicks into the story, their click is recorded. It's also recorded whether or not they Kudo/Like it. Often, the fanfic looks like this;

1 Kudo - 200 views

But, it's not like I've posted original work. I know my original work is splendid. Plus, I don't write fanfics that the majority of the fandoms want to read. For example, the Attack on Titan community has an unhealthy obsession with the pairing Levi/Eren. I don't write that. I write about much more acceptable couples, and the fandom doesn't appreciate that. Lol. No one respects originality, lol. And I'm all about originality. So I'm cool with my current position.

And apparently, the Hort/Sophie ship is not popular either, in the School For Good and Evil series. Does anyone else ship them? Again, haven't read the third book, I don't want spoilers, but, discussing books 1-2, anyone else ship them?

Hmm, I believe that Levi/Eren is an acceptable couple? I dont see how it isn't. Is it because they're both dudes? Because that's okay, it's perfectly acceptable. I like both girls and boys, and that's acceptable.

But I don't ship Sophie/Hort. Third book spoilers, yo.

Oh, no. The reason I don't like the Levi/Eren pairing is because Levi is a (admittedly hot) thirty year old man, while Eren is just fifteen. I think normal people classify that as pedophilia and look down upon it. But I ship Eren/Armin hard, for obvious reasons.

And actually, as far as The School For Good and Evil is concerned, I ship Fillip/Tedros hard. I understand who Fillip actually is, and I understand that Fillip was only around for a moment, and that it is not a viable couple. They're both "boys", so, no, I'm not concerned about genders, only people and how they interact with one another.

I have purchased book three, and when it arrives, I will read it, and then be caught up with everyone else who knows the series.

Phew. I was worried there for a second, sorry. I've experienced a lot of homophobia so I get hot-headed when it might pop up ^^,

Lots of stuff goes down on book 3.

Well, hey, in America, at least, people have very diverse opinions. There are, for example, plenty of conservatives who support the LGBTQ community...just as there are gay republicans. In the future, it might be wise to not jump to conclusions, don't you think? If someone does say something honestly homophobic, then, sure, be mad, say something. No one should discriminate against anyone for personal life choices, or lack there of. Just saying.

I have just received the third book today. I am contemplating reading it. Or writing. Or cleaning. (the struggle is real) And for the record, I completely, at least currently, having not read book three, support Fillip/Tedros. Not that it would ever happen. But I can be interested in it regardless. Never did understand the Hort/Tedros paring though. I don't think they ever liked each other as friends, let alone anything else. Unless their lack of a friendship changes in book three which okay, fine then, maybe. But until then, I like my current ships.

I'm totally impatient for the movie though. Anyone else interested in the coming not fast enough movie?
