The works of Chrétien were some of the first to elaborate on the character Guinevere beyond simply the wife of Arthur.This was likely due to Chrétien's audience at the time, the court of Marie of France, Countess of Champagne, which was composed of courtly ladies who played highly social roles.Many a rant has been made by harassed creators/producers/personalities/celebrities who state that they actually could be off doing better things or that their life is already stressful enough with their other job(s) that they really don't need to come home from a long day's work just to be hassled by entitled bastards.And many a rant towards pirates have been made saying that they actually need to make money or else they won't be able to produce further installments. It's been pointed out that very few people who do webcomics (for example) actually make off of them, with most of them doing it as a hobby.
There were mentions of Arthur's sons in the Welsh Triads, though their exact parentage is not clear. A half-sister and a brother play the antagonists in the Lancelot–Grail and the German romance Diu Crône respectively, but neither character is mentioned elsewhere. She first appears as Guanhumara (with many spelling variants in the manuscript tradition) in Geoffrey of Monmouth's pseudo-historical chronicle of British history, the Historia Regum Britanniae, written circa 1136.She is also found in medieval Welsh prose, in the mid-late 12th-century tale Culhwch and Olwen, as Arthur's wife Gwenhwyfar, sometimes spelled Gwenhwyvar.In Chrétien de Troyes's Yvain, the Knight of the Lion, she is praised for her intelligence, friendliness, and gentility, while in Marie de France's Lanval (and Thomas Chestre's Middle English version, Sir Launfal), she is a vindictive adulteress, disliked by the protagonist and all well-bred knights.Early chronicles tend to portray her inauspiciously or hardly at all, while later authors use her good and bad qualities to construct a deeper character who played a larger role.
Maybe the creator actually was screwed by someone else and the fans responded with threats and the posting of the offending party's personal information. In some cases, this tends to induce a Creator Breakdown, ending in a take that from the author to the fanbase within the work, sometimes in the presence of a Straw Fan.
