Same source material

This tag is metadata for the state of this website. It identifies reviews that are related to other reviews via a third work that has not been reviewed on this site, and is therefore not visible. That invisible third work is the true parent of the two others, not only of the later work with this tag.

This is sometimes a kludge. If the true parent work is ever reviewed, the child work tagged with “same source material” will be reassigned to that true parent. In general, their relationship will then be “adaptation” or “version” or, in the case of intermediate plans, “implementation”. In some cases, it is not possible to review the true parent, either because no canonical form is preserved—as is the case with legends—or because its parent work is in a medium excluded by an editorial policy.



The following make direct references to the same source material tag.
