I'm no longer sad.
All that is left is anger. extreme,
Let me explain:
so today i get this email from the wonderful and overall genius that is auchic.
anyway, she informs me that she stumbled upon stories in the Gilmore Girls Rory/Jess fandom that eerily reminded her of my Sarkney stories....
And lo and behold! they were my stories. WORD FOR F*CKING WORD. the only difference were the names and in one of them the setting from a plane to a dining room.
turns out that they plagerized AmyLynn's stuff too (a brilliant author)
and do you wanna hear the worst part? they had more reviews than mine did.
see for yourself: "Best Deceptions"-- MINE, theirs.
so, i've done the reporting, but this just serves to solidify that FF.N is officially dead to me.
I damn them to the firey depths of hell and I'm pulling my stories as soon as this is figured out.
And i'd been warned about this. a lot of my friends from the Escaflowne fandom had this problem also.
Unfortunately, there isn't much that can be done about this other than be on the lookout for these people. if you see something even the slightest bit suspicious alert someone. I can't tell you how important this is. PLEASE support one another. If someone hadn't pointed this out to me, there's no way i would have known.
thanks for listening to me rant.
x-posted pretty much everywhere. (i apologize)
