The Newest Witchhunt on FF

16

Hello all

As you are all likely aware by now, an individual going by the name of NO MA ALLOWED has begun a witch-hunt of MA material on FF.net.  The irony is that in order to do so, they have plagiarized material from authors WORDPRESS and TUMBLR sites and posted them on FF as K.  One of the stories she plagiarized links to a tumblr post which contains graphic sexual images.  (Erect penises, naked women, penetration etc).  She also has a list of authors on her profile she is targeting and had the gall to write some extremely hurtful remarks next to EIM’s name, not to mention she ‘follows’ anyone who stands up for the targeted authors.

A lot of us began reporting her on FF and then also calling her out on her hypocrisy on various boards she posted on.  I also personally contacted one such board moderator, as did a few others, and we have a response. So…….

sistersofbattle14 commented on QueenOfAreaFive’s post:

Hey guys,
So, I have been in touch with several people, MODS, and high up people on fanfiction and wordpress. It seems our comments, protests and concerns have hit them big time! We are overloading their systems! WOO! Great job!
I have been told that they are aware of the situation, and looking into this.
However, each writer that has been listed on NO MA’s profile, and writers whose work has been plagiarized MUST contact fanfiction, and use the links that others have posted on here.
It is now in the hands of the writers.
We have brought this to the attention at the top, but now, the writers need to write their points, and we have won.
Well done guys, each comment on here, fanfiction and on other sites has shown loyalty, support, and proves what a great community of friends, writers, readers and reviewers we all are, and can make a difference.

The links she refers to are from this email I received from the moderator I was in contact with….

Having read your explanation fully, I completely understand why you voiced your concern over the matter and that’s perfectly ok. 🙂

However, I did talk to Cats and he gave me the following link to report plagiarized works when they are found:

https://www.fanfiction.net/topic/124913/128848605/15/TAPIR-Tip-Thread-Got-a-plagiarism-case-to-report-or-any-other-useful-info-Post-Details-Here

The group deals with matters of stolen works quickly and swiftly.🙂 You can report the user and your matter will be handled without a delay. 🙂

Now if you go under a thread in my forum named: The True meaning of Cyberbullying, you will find very helpful information about what steps you can take when dealing with a cyberbully. 🙂 Very accurate information as I update it when new information becomes available about the subject. 🙂

So, everyone who has been targeted by this person, GO GO GO!  Report and lets show these cyber bullies what for!

This is the link to the current bullies profile to check to see who is there:

Which order shall I lick those muscles in today?

 

Happy Birthday Alexander Skarsgard!!!!!

Disclaimer:  I’m Aussie so it’s August 25th here and therefore already his birthday.  Just an FYI for the email I received ranting that I was a crappy fan if I couldn’t even get his birthday correct.  He was born in 1976 so is therefore 39, not 37 as well, so ner ner.

Today is a glorious day.  Today is our (my) beloved Skarsy’s 39th birthday.

Happy Birthday to Thee!

I personally think today should be a global holiday to celebrate but alas, stuffy politicians do not seem to agree.

Discovering this wonderful man, who will become my future husband if I wish hard enough, has been an adventure.  I have met some absolutely fabulous people.  I have discovered some incredibly talented women who daily astound me with what they can do: Kjwrit, California Kat, Victory in Trouble and TL/NYC.  I’ve discovered some writers that confuse me with their popularity and I’ve met some women who are not so nice (putting that politely).  One thing we all have in common however is our affection for the love story between Eric and Sookie.

Until I die I will never understand why CH decided to crap all over what could have been an amazing series.  I understand she was ticked she was forced to keep Bill when she intended to kill him.  I understand she was peeved she was ‘forced’ to write more books than she intended.  I don’t understand that she blames Alex for the Eric-love considering I’ve spoken with a chick who writes fanfic who has never seen TB and bases her Eric love on just the written version.  I do understand she is the author and can therefore do whatever the heck she wants with her characters but sometimes what you intend is not what happens.

Perfect example!  In Star trek Deep Space Nine, there were two characters: Odo and Kira.  When the writers created these two, they intended for them to be friends.  That was it.  Friends and only friends.  Even the actors wanted their characters to be only friends.  Alas, in the very first season they wrote a scene where Odo discovers something about Kira which disappoints him and the look the actor used at that moment had every fan go, “Oh my god, he’s in love with her!!!!!!”  Even the writers looked at that moment and went, “Well crap.  He’s in love with her”.  They tried very hard to steer everyone away from that line of thinking but it was too late; as far as the fans were concerned, Odo was in love with Kira and no-one could tell them otherwise.  So, over the next six seasons the writers decided to go with it.  When the time came to either keep ignoring it or move it forward, the actors begged for them to ignore it but the writers knew that the fans deserved some kind of acknowledgment and pay-off for years of faithfully following this story and so Odo and Kira became a couple.  Admittedly season 7 wasn’t so kind, (shakes fist), but the fans were satisfied.  All of this because the actor chose to use a certain expression in one tiny scene.

CH gave us thousands of these tiny scenes over many books and yet for reasons only she knows, decided to completely ignore her own lore and character development to give us what is possibly the most brain bleach scene of all time; seal sex.  Without her, however, we would never have gotten to see Alex in the role which has ignited the imagination of so many people.  His ability to put so much emotion into one tiny look has set my heart aflutter many times and I am so grateful to him for doing magnificent work with what became an incredibly stupid show.

So Happy Birthday Alex!  I hope you have a great day, well as great as you can have without knowing me, and I’m sure I speak for many many others when I say I look forward to your future roles.

And now, some gratuitous Skarsporn…..

Todays Random Posting……..

Hi All It’s been a long while, not that I’ve actually WRITTEN anything to have you all hanging around at the moment, but thanks to those of you still here…..or who have forgotten you are here.  *snicker* Anyhoo, I am posting today for a few reasons so:

  1. A month ago I bought a brand spanking new, so shiny and pretty smelling it makes me happy, computer. Admittedly all I’ve used it for thus far is googling random things and playing World of Warcraft but those things make me happy so who cares.  As I am still working on my mental health, which is a long battle as 35 years worth of crud isn’t exactly going anywhere overnight, I am taking it easy in regards to all the things I want to do.  These things include a graphic design course which I had signed up for but then had to cancel once my laptop died and I had the mini-breakdown last year.  This is still something I am wanting to explore but now, rather than doing for others, I will be doing it for myself.  I’ve never tried to make out I was fantastic at what I did.  I used free online programs and a slow laptop to create what I could.  I didn’t have the money, resources, nor health to do more but I tried with what I did have and I was damn proud of it.  I taught myself and while I’ve had snide comments from some in regards to what I did create, screw them; I like ’em!
  1. A couple of weeks ago, a woman at work who I consider a friend, had her 22-year-old daughter go missing. For 2 days we anxiously sat around hoping for word that she had been found safe and sound, however last Wednesday, we attended her funeral.  The circumstances surrounding her death will always be a little unclear but the shock of it is very much a reality.  You always hear about these things happening but it is always to other people, never anyone you know.  My friend is an amazing and strong woman and I am so proud of her for how she has conducted herself throughout this terrible time and couldn’t be more amazed at how so many people rallied to help in any way they could.  As it is with such things, it has made me realise how fragile and short life is and I have strived harder in the last few weeks to connect with those I love so they know how I feel about them.  Life is too short to live in fear and anxiety and anger which leads me into my third point.
  1. I’m going to actually do it this time. Rather than planning and plotting and scribbling things down on paper, I will actually start writing.  I have a fair bit down on paper since I was computer-less but had been reluctant to transfer it to a word document to really work on it. I’m woman enough to admit I am terrified for a variety of reasons.  It has been so long since I have written, what if I am terrible?  I am already struggling with just reading thanks to the fibro, what if writing is more than I can handle?  I am coming late to a party which is already starting to dwindle, why bother?  And on and on it goes.  Truth is, I don’t know the answers to any of those questions.  It is true that the level at which I used to write has fallen since I was a teenager but then I have days now where I have to Google ‘cutlery’ because I spend 35 minutes trying to think of the word ‘fork’.  Fibromyalgia is not my excuse, but an explanation as to why I struggle now.  Depression also.  And let’s not forget Chronic Fatigue.  All three suck considerably and combining them into one human can make days seem insurmountable.  I recently bought a mug which states “if it requires clothes, a bra or leaving the house, it’s just not going to happen today.”  That is pretty much my life motto.  All of this aside however, I am not going to let it hold me back.  I don’t read much fanfiction anymore.  I tend to stick with a very small group of writers I adore which pretty much consists of kjwrit, California Kat, VictoryInTrouble, Virala, aaaaaaaand that’s pretty much it.  There are a few random stories I follow for Queen of Area Five, ILWE and a few randoms on ff.net also but nothing consistent.  Each of these ladies are amazing writers and inspire me greatly so I am going to stop being afraid and just do it.  As I have mentioned previously, I’m not in this for fame and glory.  I don’t care if one person likes it or one hundred.  I want to write for me again because when I stopped I felt as though a large part of myself died and I don’t think I have truly been myself since then.  I still answer ‘hobbies’ with ‘reading, writing’ in that order and that is not just from habit, but a true belief this is who I am.  I regret the wasted years but I have many more ahead.  So I am whipping out the trusty diary and I will find a time to set aside to write.  (It has to be in the diary now otherwise I forget.  Seriously, I even have laundry written in because it won’t get done otherwise.  So yes, I have a goal.  I will finally get this beast out of my head and onto paper.  I have no clue if there is anything similar out there, and I hope not, but I guess I’ll find out when I start.  I’ve had the Prophecy this while thing hangs on written for the last 2 years so it’s time to dust it off and get moving.  Please have patience with me, not that any of you probably remember me now.  🙂

Anyway, that is all I wanted to say.  Congrats to kjwrit, CK, Virala and ViT for their wins in the recent awards.  With the one vote policy these are well-deserved!  You are each amazing writers so thank-you for all you do as well as other writers such as Queen of Area Five, Mistress Jessica and TL/NYCS. See you on the flip-side!

Seriously, is there any better advertisement for reading than this?!?!

Pet Peeve Incoming…

0

I have a random query, prefaced by one of my fanfic pet peeves…

I read A LOT of fanfics, (the good ones), so I see this regularly. In fact I do not believe I have EVER read anything different. In fanfics involving Hunter, Sookie is often referred to as ‘Aunt’ Sookie, and Hunter, her nephew. People are aware that the child of your cousin is also a cousin, right?

I have no issue with him calling her Aunt Sookie because he is a child and family relationships can get confusing when it comes to extended and blended families, but not once have I seen a fix where it is explained that he is technically her cousin, and I also frequently read fics where upon first learning of Hunters existence, Eric refers to him as Sookie’s nephew. Eric, of all people, would know the correct term. 

So I guess my question is, do people actually know this but decide to story-telling time to ignore this or do people simply forget?  Again, there is no issue with Hunter calling Sookie his Aunt. He’s a kid!  Of course it’s easier. 

New Year Update

6

So, as some of you may know, (those who read my ramblings), I have suffered from depression for pretty much my whole life as well as various other illnesses.  It is a daily struggle to get out of bed let alone be functional.  I’ve whinged several times here and I thank everyone who has kindly let me ramble.  I thought however, I might give an update.

So as previously mentioned, I started going to a psychologist last year.  Unfortunately as it is a university clinic, it shuts down for three months over the Christmas and New Year period.  An irony in my opinion considering that Christmas is one of the peak times for those suffering depression.  My Christmas was made quite stressful due to the fact that my beautiful 18 month old car got hailed on (while I was in it).  Even though it didn’t look badly damaged, it was declared a right-off.  Thankfully my insurance covered a replacement but that took two weeks of constant phone calls and follow-ups to achieve and I was without a car for a month.  I live 2.5 hours ONE WAY to work and because of my pain condition, buses are not my friend.  Thankfully my glorious dad who is the best dad in the whole history of dads, drove 30 mins from his house to pick me up and then drive me the 30 mins to work each morning and afternoon for two weeks before I was given a free hire car until mine could be ready.  As I said, best dad ever.

The depression however seems to be in control at the moment.  I do still have down days, and my birthday was quite glum, but I’m not suicidal thus far which is the longest stretch I’ve gone for years!  Yay!  The fibro is being a bitch and the extremely hot weather we are having (30 degrees at midnight for example), means I’m still not sleeping well but cold baths are helping a little.

However, a few things have proven to be extremely effective in helping me.  The main one is reading, especially all the glorious fanfiction.  Unfortunately, as TB / SVM fics are now dwindling due to lack of interest, I’m finding it harder and harder to get my fix.  A few awesome authors are still updating occasionally, (mistressjessica, kjwrit, victoryintrouble, CaliforniaKat and a few others), but unfortunately it seems that crap authors are the ones writing new fics the most.  (Seriously, description people!  Stop writing like it’s a list!  And some of it is my fault.  In my early days of discovering fics, I was so excited for TB stories I encouraged bad writers, something I have remedied over the last year).  And of course all the old awesome fics haven’t had updates in forever (The Arrangement and a few trilogies with no endings).  I’ll just have to go back to reading my fave Star Trek novels.  (Oh no.  How terrible!  😛 )

Meanwhile, the amount of Alex pics over the last few days has given me much happy.  Everyone has most likely seen these but I shall share a few of my faves anyway!

The IMDb & Amazon Instant Video Studio At The Village At The Lift - Day 1 - 2015 Park City

Last but not least, my fave.  Seriously, this smile is enough to make me grin like an idiot also!  I still remember the first time I noticed his adorkable grin.  I was watching a TB panel on youtube three years ago and he turned to look at Kristin and smile.  Thankfully I was alone in the house so when I squealed, “OMG!!!!  He has an adorkable over-bite!!!”, no-one was nearby to judge me.  I’ve been obsessed with his grin ever since.  It saddens me that so few pap pics of him show him smiling.  He should never frown!  Smoulder, definitely.  Frown, no!

Thanks everyone again for letting me ramble,  I am still sans computer so anything I am writing is by hand so it’s slow going and one day I look forward to transferring it into types format!

Hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year!  Mwah!

Nooooo!!!!!!! *Alex Gossip*

*sigh*  Apparently the rumour mill has Alex linked to his Tarzan co-star Margot Robbie.  And while I know that the chance of ever getting to meet him is slim to none, let alone getting to meet him, him looking at me and going PHWOAR! then marrying, it still makes this little fan-girls heart hurt.  That being said, I really hope he DOES find an awesome gal to settle with and have kiddies because that man will have seriously good looking children and we all know that Alex with small children = ovaries exploding…..

Just Because

So by now, most people may know that there is a very tense hostage situation occurring just a one hour plane ride away from me.

Luckily, no-one I love is in that building, so for that I am very thankful. That being said, the last time we had a hostage situation here some 18 years ago, it didn’t end so well but did see much stricter gun laws which mean these types of situations are very rare here.

The reason I write this however is because I am so so proud of being Australian right now. I don’t care what anyone else says, right now, Australia is the greatest country on earth at this very moment. The number one tending hashtag on twitter is #illridewithyou. A young woman offered on twitter, to ride on public transport with Muslim people who do not feel safe right now. One wonderful girl reminded us all that what a small group do should never reflect on the group. Westboro church shame Christians and yet we don’t persecute them. Muslims are easily identifiable and therefore easily targeted. I may not personally believe what they do, but I refuse to discriminate one person based on the actions of another.

Right now, my glorious country is reminding the world that you don’t have to react to violence with violence, nor hatred with hatred. Someone may threaten you but your actions are all your own.

I am Australian, and right now, I have never been prouder.

Now It’s Getting Stupid

I still cannot believe the blatant disrespect people show when they steal someone else’s hard work and attempt to pass it off as their own. It happened to me in the days before the internet and was by pure chance I discovered it. Now, in this age of Google and plagiarism checkers etc, I find it hard to believe that people are this stupid. Yes, unfortunately, many people get away with it but I am hoping that as more and more people become aware of the issue, that many more will get caught. Fanfiction IS protected. Fanfiction writers DO have rights. Those who steal fanfiction works need to understand that it WILL NOT be tolerated.

Hi Everyone,

Okay, I’m starting to feel like I’m just pissing in your ear about the same thing over and over, but I once again need your help.  ANOTHER author on fafiction,net has stolen massive amounts of my stuff (from multiple stories this time) and put them in her Eric/Tara story.  It’s called Element of Blood by Carmel Muse, and from about Chapter 8 onwards, it’s just one huge ripoff.

Check it here.

A reader clued me into this woman on another fan site and I had them take it down, but she was writing under a different name and a different title.  I told her to take it down, which she didn’t, so the administrator did it for me.  I’ve written to her again on FFN to take it down, but it would be great if anyone who feels like it would go PM or review her and let…
