RPF has existed for as long as there have been celebrities. Any media ‘based on a true story!’ is RPF. Any historical fiction narrative that co-opts a real person or real group is RPF. Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar is RPF, and reflects reality just as accurately as the better and more lovingly, carefully written internet RPF of today: virtually not at all. The names remain - Julius Caesar, Mark Antony - as do certain simplified traits, the archetypal roles they play. In lieu of actual Julius Caesar and Actual Mark Antony, we get AU!Caesar and an AU!Antony in a simpler, more dramatic narrative.

Why hasn’t any movie had Fantine lie passively in the corner of a room while Javert writes a note sending her to jail?  This whole sequence shows who the characters are sooo well.

I have never known but one man who could take the place of a screw, and he was that convict.

What a fellow you are, Stephen. Any sailor can tell a great deal from the way another sailor sets his jib, or goes about, or flashes out his stuns’ls, just as you could tell a great deal about a doctor from the way he whipped off a leg.’

‘Always this whipping off of a leg. It is my belief that for you people the whole noble art of medicine is summed up in the whipping off of a leg.
