Exactly. People have this idea in their heads that certain stories can only be told a certain way, but it's called ADAPTATION, not TRANSLATION.

"harm" is not the same thing as "stuff we don't like." - metaphysician
"Despair is for people who know beyond any doubt what the future is going to be. Nobody's in that position. So despair is not only a kind of sin - theologically - it's also a simple mistake, because nobody actually knows." - Dr. Patrick Curry
"There is no "supposed to be." It's an adaptation, a word that literally means change. Why bother making a new version if it doesn't offer a fresh approach?" - Christopher L. Bennett
