I’m intimidated by the fear of being average.
@taylorswift13: Met this girl at club red last night, she looks so much like me when i was 17!
This is false. I hate people who come up with stupid lies like this. J.M. Barrie had no brother named Peter. He did have two brothers who died before his birth, but it was common for parents back in the 18th century to have a child that was deceased. J.M. Barrie got his inspiration from the Llewelyn Davies boys.
Not every damn story that has inspired Disney has a huge fucking dark side. One of the Llewelyn Davies boys was named Peter, and he did commit suicide, but that was after J.M. Barrie’s death. His suicide has no connection with fictional Peter.
This is a prime example as to why people shouldn’t believe everything they read on the internet. This continues to be passed on in the Peter Pan tag, and it’s annoying to see everyone who has been fooled by it.
Actually his brother David, who actually kind of inspired the story didn’t die before James’ birth, he died when James was 6. His brother David and the Llewelyn Davies children were the inspiration for Peter Pan, who is named after Peter Llewelyn Davies.
…But I agree it is annoying how many times I’ve seen this post lately
And now this lie of his brother being called Peter will live among the other Peter Pan lies like that guy who everyone thinks is Jeremy Sumpter, the “Never say goodbye” quote who everyone thinks came from Peter Pan and the idea Peter and Wendy are in love.
