PlagiarizedSeveral of you contacted me last week to notify me that an author on fanfiction.net had directly stolen large portions of my story and was trying to pass them off as her own. At the time, I didn't want to make a big issue out of it and I tried to work with her to correct the problem.
She had initially removed my parts from her story but I received another e-mail today and came to the realization that she's doing it all over again. The story is awful and it's extremely embarrassing to have my quotes in there alongside hers. That's not even mentioning the fact that it's incredibly wrong to steal from other authors anyway.
The stories are not my best work and have actually been up here for a couple of years. I've been intending to redo them but I just haven't had time yet. Now I'm considering taking them down completely because of this.
The author won't seem to listen to me but if you want to leave her some feedback on my behalf, here is the address to the story:
My parts are little further down in that chapter but you should be able to recognize them, as the writing style is completely different.
Thanks and I hope this never happens to any of you. It feels like such a violation to have somebody rip off your work this way.
ETA: Evidently the author is actually plagiarizing someone on this site who has plagiarized me. This grows even more complicated but I do have to say that plagiarism will not be allowed on the site under any circumstances. If you see any in the future, please report it to me immediately.
