Hmm, why do I always get great ideas for holiday fics when it's too late to start writing them and have them done in time?

ATTENTION ALL READERS & WRITERS -- there is a thief among us!! A reader brought to my attention tonight that she saw one of my stories posted on fanfiction.net under another author's name. After some poking around, it seems this person has stolen multiple stories from me -- and other writers on this site. Please go check out "her" stories and make sure one of yours is not among them. If you find yours, please report it to the site managers. I'm hoping they will take down the stolen stories and revoke that person's registration. Here is the link: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1465773/Bella4Edward I am FURIOUS -- and you should be too. Plaigarism is not cool -- it's the same thing as STEALING. It's the theft of intellectual property and it is ILLEGAL.

O_O To see someone with the audacity to do something like this...I'm sincerely sorry to see this happen to you Kayla Ariev. But, a bright side (a rather weak bright side) is that she thinks your stories are brilliant enough to claim them as her own. If you need me to sign a petition or be a witness or whatever FF.net asks for, let me know :)

By addictedtotwilight

Well, it seems I don't have much to worry about.... she hates Jake. Why would someone do that? And ditto for me to the offer Marauder by Midnight made. Sorry that this happened... some people suck.

By Blonde Bella

Posted 23 Jan 08

Um, wow. That's so completely pathetic that someone would do that.

I repeat what Kayla Ariev wrote. She copied the stories from THIS site, WORD BY WORD. Somebody wrote, "Do you have an account on Twilight Archives? I've seen your work on there." This, is not her work. It is yours, and the work of many other people on this site. She just thought she could get away with it because she posted it on a different site, I guess. I second Kayla Ariev's suggestion that you go check to see if your fic has been ripped off. It disgusts me that someone could do this. I'm sorry for Kayla Ariev, and everyone else who got their stories plagiarized.

that is so stupid that someone would dare rip off someone's else's story and put it as their own. what kind of untalented desperate person would do that?!?! that would seriously tick me off. Sorry Kayla Ariev for what happened.

By addictedtotwilight

Posted 23 Jan 08

It looks like they made her take it down, she only has one story up now. Did she copy that too, or is it her own? Anyone know?

By Kiss My Fang

Posted 23 Jan 08

She messaged me saying that she didn't realize that they were plagiarized, her friend just asked her to post some stories for her. She took them all down because she was horrified. She claims that the one story still left is actually her work, and no one else's.

By Kayla Ariev

Posted 24 Jan 08

I call BS ... whatever. At least the stolen stories are down. I'm so glad to see everyone here rallying around the "cause," so to speak! I was so furious (as you may have guessed from my previous message) and it's nice to see that I wasn't overreacting.

By Edwards Rose

I'm so sorry that this happened to you, Kayla Ariev! And to all others who had their work stolen. SO not cool. I checked the link, but it looks like all her stories were taken down...save for one. I'm sorry to say that this person has taken a few plot ideas from my story for hers. Does anyone know if the rest is original?

By awsomealice94

Posted 25 Jan 08

omg....well i looked through the story still left on her account, i have not seen it on TA so hopefully its her own. that is just sad-copying fanfic??? she has some problems, i'll say that much. i didn't see her account before, so i have no idea if she took some of mine (i hope she didn't tho) its kinda scary to think that people can copy your own stories and put them as their own on ANY site and that you may not even know. is there something that can be done to stop that from happening??

By Wolfgirl_Mindi

Posted 25 Jan 08

I think a lot of cases of plagiarism happen because the plagiarizer actually doesn't realize it's wrong. It happened to me once--I freaked out and told her to take down the story, and she went all defensive, saying she didn't realize it was plagiarism to copy my story word-for-word, change only the names, and call it her own. Anyway, I'm sorry it happened to you, Kayla Ariev. It's a horrible feeling to see someone stealing your work. :(

By awsomealice94

Posted 27 Jan 08

sorry for posting twice on here but did anyone happen to see the stories that were taken from TA before 'she' took them down?

By AmethystOrnella

Posted 29 Jan 08

Man Kayla Ariev, that's totally not okay. I like you're strories too but I'd definately be upset if someone was plagiarizing my stuff, I completely understand where you're coming from. Is there anything you an do about it?

By snowcoveredroses

Posted 30 Jan 08

That's awful. I'm so sorry Kayla Ariev, and to anyone else this has happened too. It's totally NOT COOL!

Erhm, guys? Are any of you noticing the startling lack of activity on here lately? I think we need something to spice things up... like... a challenge? Even though I'm not even updating my current stories, of course... :P Oh well.

Oops, sorry, didn't mean to post that so soon. But I agree, addictedtotwilight. And we need something creative, because (no offense) we are getting a lot of future fics and AU's, which are nice in small doses but after 30 of them it is hard to find a unique plotline.

By bleedforyou

Posted 03 Feb 08

I agree wholeheartedly =D We so need a kick-butt challenge... i'm getting tired of even my own stories...

By Blonde Bella

Posted 04 Feb 08

I can empathize; the muses have gotten sick of each of my writings.

By girlysquirrelly

Posted 04 Feb 08

i totally agree. we need something to write for like a contest. that would excite me.

By bleedforyou

Posted 04 Feb 08

dude, my muses are pretending like they dont know me or my writing... bleck.

By london_calling

Posted 04 Feb 08

It's probably just a little funk that settled over this site for a little while. There are only so many different versions of what can happen. But I'm sure someone will get a spark of creativity and that will get things rolling again! Midterms just kind of ended also. Don't blame it only on the writers, blame it on the school system and lack of sleep.

By Master Sword

Posted 04 Feb 08

Sigh, hopefully I'll be able to write more now that my stupid exams are over. (obsessive exam revision really takes a lot out of me)

By awsomealice94

Posted 05 Feb 08

yes, i totally agree with london_calling. school and lack of sleep is exactly why i have not been posting often. but i have a break for a week and i have some weird ideas in my mind for some new stories. but i agree, we have not done a challenge since like oct.

By Blonde Bella

Posted 05 Feb 08

Yeah, the last challenge was the minor character which I didn't get to submit to because I got grounded.

By girlysquirrelly

Posted 08 Feb 08

breaking dawn comes out on August 2!!!

By addictedtotwilight

Posted 08 Feb 08

So, yeah. I started an AU... maybe you're right. I'm at District Chorus right now, at my host's house, trying to come up with something to write. Nothing. Awful! Maybe all the fanfictions have been written... Nah! We need some inspiration, Kaiwynn... help us out!

By Master Sword

Posted 09 Feb 08

Seriously? Breaking Dawn is coming out Aug 2nd? That's my birthday. I guess I know what I'm getting with my birthday money.

By darkangel_8694

Posted 09 Feb 08

Lol, that's what I would do. And since that's close to my OWN b-day, that's what I'll ask for my Christmas birthday present!

By darkangel_8694

Posted 09 Feb 08

Oh. My birthday is AUGUST 6 not Christmas. Typo, sorry. Lol

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! So many typos! Now I'm getting really annoyed.

By addictedtotwilight

Posted 09 Feb 08

I don't reccomend pre-ordering it if you want it that day, BTW. I did for Eclipse, and I ended up with two copies because I couldn't wait any longer and went out and bought it. It was another week before the copy I had pre-ordered arrived. Gr.
