everyone agrees…

Yanno, just because you tend to lurk more than you comment some people seem to be under the impression that if they speak in code (ie ‘he who must not be named’) you won’t be able to understand them.

Let me ask you this question, virtual folk…

What m/m romance character always, ALWAYS comes up in any discussion about alpha wankers?



You’re all living in denial if you don’t think that’s proof that deep down everyone really believes Jake ‘I’m a selfish prick’ Riordan is an arsehole.

But wait.

Maybe that’s why so many poor confused readers do think they like him??

They have something in common with good ol’ dickwad…


ETA: In an attempt to piss me off some people (eg Richelle) have written spoilers in their comments. Consider yourself warned.

About Kris

Reads, rants, randoms & R+s. You've been warned. BTW, don't follow me if you're a GLBTQQphobic wanker. It won't end well. For you.

  1. So, I still haven't read this Jake guy.

    He who shall not be named makes me think of Harry Potter, another set of books I haven't read.

    I blame those sparkly vampires for limiting my books to read.

  2. Tracy says:

    First she posts pictures just to piss me off and now she calls me an arsehole. That's friendship, I'm tellin ya. Don't tell me differently.

  3. lbgregg says:

    Jake is all that is good, Kris.

    I believe the shoe is clearly on the other foot.


  4. lbgregg says:

    I was so excited, I forgot to punctuate.

  5. Kris says:

    Katebabs chook: Jake is nearly as evil as Voldemort, IMHO.

    Oh, and true or not, you blame sparkly vampires for everything. πŸ˜‰

    Tracy: Friends??

    I said Jake was a prick, arsehole and a dickwad. I implied that those of you who liked him are completely and utterly mental. There's a difference, albeit a small one.

    LB: Puleeze. Take your propaganda elsewhere.

    “I was so excited, I forgot to punctuate.”

    I think you forgot something else too. *smiling sweetly*

  6. Tracy says:

    Ok – so you said I was in denial and not an arsehole but s'rsly? Not. even. Jake is just misunderstood.

  7. Tam says:

    Voldemort is an alpha male?

    I'm with KB, I've yet to experience Jake for myself so I remain neutral on the subject. But Tom Riddle was sooooo gay.

  8. Kris says:

    Just misunderstood?? JUST MISUNDERSTOOD?! The hell you say.

    He's about as misunderstood as anyone who's a let's-nearly-kill-the-ex-even-though-I'm-obviously-in-love-with-him-to-save-my-career-and-to-keep-the-fact-that-I'm-you-know-GAY-a-not-very-well-hidden-secret kind of a guy.

    What is WRONG with you people?!!!!!

  9. Kris says:

    Tam, being Switzerland is NOT an option in this discussion. CHOOSE!

    BTW, if Tom Riddle is gay would that mean… Hmm, I guess that would explain all that anger.

  10. Tam says:

    But Switzerland has chocolate. You're going to need a crow bar to pry me out of here.

  11. Kris says:

    Oh. Good point. Since it's chocolate you're excused.

  12. Tracy says:

    *snort* (I knew that would get her worked up. teehee.)

  13. Sean Kennedy says:

    Yes, I would have to say if I were Adrien I would be pretty much holding a grudge.

    I think it's lucky for Jake that Adrien's sisters don't know the full story, or else they would take him out. And I don't mean to the ballgame.

  14. nichem says:

    Aww, I love Jake. Tracey's right– he's just misunderstood.

    And Jake SAVED Adrien at the end of the last book. AND he finally stepped up and did the right thing. Give the poor guy a break. πŸ˜›

  15. Kris says:

    Tracy: *pouts*

    Sean: Yay, finally. Welcome common sense.

    I suggested that the next AE should have a scene where the tables are turned and Jake is 'punished' by Adrien so to speak. I don't think Josh took me up on it, but I'm still crossing my fingers. πŸ™‚

    Richelle: You're still meant to be sucking up to me after yesterday so I'm just ignoring you, although I will point out that JAKE WAS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS WHY ADRIEN NEARLY GOT KILLED IN THE FIRST PLACE! *the fucker*

  16. Tracy says:

    Gosh I really wish you had stronger feelings on the subject. You're so undecided on whether you like JAKE or not.

  17. Kris says:

    Ha. Ha. You are so funny. ROFL.

  18. Lily says:

    One of these days I'm going to have to read the books. They been sitting in my TBR for months.

    So Kris, I take it you're not too fond of Jake? πŸ˜€

  19. Ingrid says:

    Lily you have about 2 months to read them all.

    I do think Jake needs to suffer a bit more. But he is going in the right direction for sure

  20. Kris says:

    Lily, as Ingrid said, times-a-ticking!

    “So Kris, I take it you're not too fond of Jake? :D”

    Everyone's a comedian today.

    Ingrid: I'm crossing my fingers that Jake loses everything he loves and has to crawl back to Adrien and beg his forgiveness. Either that or Jake dies and Adrien finds someone who actually treats him decently. Needless to say that I hope he gets killed off.

  21. Sean Kennedy says:

    Okay, killing him is going a bit too far. Give him a chance to redeem himself!

  22. Kris says:

    Et tu, Sean?

    Well, considering the fact that there is only one more book in the series, I'd say his chances are all about done. Although, let's face it, they were pretty much done in book 3. *the bastard*

  23. Not a huge fan of Jake, but I adore Adrien. And since Jake is who Adrien wants, I kinda want them to be together so I can read about So Happy Adrien. Even if I think he could totally do better.

    Have already sent Josh many threatening emails. Will disown him if Adrien doesnt get his HEA with Jake.

  24. Kris says:

    Emmy, you really think that the removal of Jake's head from arse will make him less of a wanker?? I have more hope in your threats working.

  25. Jenre says:

    Excuse me? Lurk? I comment every friggin' day (except yesterday). It's just that by the time I get here (at 7.30am proper time) all that could be said, has been said and I have nothing further to add to the argument – especially one which discusses the finer points of anal sex and sparkly vamps from a book I haven't read. :P.

    I CAN comment today though and say that Jake is just misunderstood. He's a complete teddy bear who just needs the love of a good man (ie Adrien) to set him right on the road to a HEA. Something which is going to happen in the next Adrien book or Emmy won't be the only one throwing a hissy fit.

  26. Kris says:

    Hello?? Guilty conscience much? I was talking about me being a lurker. Go back and read that post again.

    “He's a complete teddy bear who just needs the love of a good man (ie Adrien) to set him right on the road to a HEA.”

    He had the love of a good man from the first friggin' book!

    He doesn't need a road so much as a map, compass, GPS, satellite phone, sign posts at 10 meter intervals, a guide plus a fucking chauffer-driven vehicle. Maybe then he will wise up to being a prick and begin to see the wood for the trees… or at least where his arse is stuck at.

  27. Jenre says:

    This is what comes of some people referring to themselves in the second person so as to confuse those who haven't had the requisite number of cups of tea for their brain to be properly engaged.

    My conscience is clear *ding – halo appears*.

    Ah, Kris. Why are you raking up old ghosts, hun? You know I'm right and you'll just end up looking like someone with a grudge against an imperfect man who may have made one or two mistakes in his life but has finally seen the light.

  28. Kris says:

    *ping* That halo sounds a bit friggin' hollow to me.

    One or two mistakes?? Too bad those mistakes were the size of Mount Bloody Everest!!!

    Oh, and fyi, my ability to hold a grudge is a tribute to my Irish grandmother and my Eastern European antecedents. I am all about my family heritage.

  29. Ingrid says:

    I have to side with Jen. He has lost the way but is on the right track.
    But he does need a good kicking for letting Adrien suffer that much.

  30. orannia says:

    If I ask who Jake is will I be shot?

  31. Kris says:

    Ingrid: Right track?? See my comment to Jen re: his being 'on the road to redemption'.

    Oh, and the kicking?? Needs to be done repeatedly, IMHO. Right in the balls.

    Orannia: Consider yourself lucky more like.

    Ingrid: Smart arse.

  32. Orannia: you and I are outcasts because I haven't read Jake whose head will be pulled out of his arse.

  33. Anonymous says:

    I don't think we quite get how you feel about Jake. Could you be more specific? You're so vague…
    I am yet to read the books but considering the reaction I will wait till the last book is about to come out before I start them, just so I don't lose my mind like some people who shall remain nameless…

  34. Tracy says:

    I thoroughly love Emmy and Jenre's comments. You get all my love right now ladies.

  35. Kris says:

    KBC: Apparently, the head pulling will occur in the last book. I won't hold my breath.

    Suzi: *trout stare*

    Tracy: Yeah, yeah. Just because I post a couple of pics you don't like and say you're mental you get all stroppy and stuff. You're so sensitive.

  36. Tracy says:

    Don't you hate it when I get stroppy? What the hell does that mean anyway. And there's nothing wrong with being mental. My psychiatrist said so. *blows cherry*

  37. Kris says:

    *wonder why Tracy has cherries on the brain*

    Stroppy = techy, PMSy, pissy, Ms Mental Head.

  38. Lori says:

    Jake is just confused. Honest.

    Sure, he's messing w/Adrien's head while he's figuring it all out, but he's really just confused.

    *stirring the pot*

  39. Kris says:

    *Damn stupid not biting thing.*

    Let me put it to you this way. Say you had a friend who starts seeing and then quickly falls in love with this guy. Later you find out that the guy is a liar, emotionally and physically abusive, srcewing around, not to mention (geez, I'm saying that a lot lately) nearly getting said friend killed.

    When the friend asks you for your advice, do you pat them on the hand and tell them it's okay the guy is just misunderstood??


    You tell your friend to fuck him off and you have yourselves a little voodoo ceremony where you curse the guy with some horrible disease in the hopes that his dick falls off!

  40. Ingrid says:

    Kris, he does it mean it that way. Honestly. It just happened.

  41. Kris says:

    Have you noticed how many times some of you have used the word 'honest' or 'honestly' to describe Jake's behaviour. It's kind of interesting.

    Although it reminds me of an over-used Scout's Honour promise.

    Just sayin'.

  42. jitterbug says:

    Look what happens when one's away from the net! Kris starts an uproar in which she's making all the noise πŸ˜› because some of her cunning friends wave, torero-like, a Jake-flag under her nose… funny! πŸ˜›

    BTW, Jake's stamina is impressive: he succeeded in juggling not one, not two, but three lovers at the same time (!) at least for a while…

    We'll see what will happen in the final book. I surely want him (Jake (you bastard) of course) to suffer some more, because he has committed a loooong list of crimes against Adrien, but I'm with Emmy – he's the one Adrien wants and I fear it's too late to make him change his mind (there's only one book left after all ;).

  43. Kris says:

    Oh, shuddup. *pouts*

  44. Kris says:

    Look at what you've all done.

    All your ganging up on me has made me been mean to Sara when I've been cool, calm and collected in the face of adversary up till this point.
    Hang on a sec. She was taking the piss too!!

    I take it back then.

    You're all meanies. 😦

  45. Ingrid says:

    Kris, you need to head over to Josh's LJ. He will be having an “interview” with Adrien and Jake.
    And you, the reader can put up your questions now.

    Now that sounds just something for you.

  46. orannia says:

    LOL Ingrid πŸ™‚

    KB – I'm about to enter into the world of Adrian & Jake…I have packed a survival kit for a quick escape *grin*
