Stolen story part 3  
I know y'all believe that I wrote 5:59:59 and did not steal it as is being claimed by the person on fanfiction.net (which my BFF and I generally call failfiction.net for reasons that should be obvious.) But the thief is demanded proof that I wrote it and didn't steal it from her "when she sent it to me to proofread." Well, I don't generally proofread stories for people I've never met. And I certainly don't proofread stories that were never sent to me.

Anyway, I am posting my "proof" here because if push comes to shove, I want to be able to show it to all concerned parties - which frankly only may be me. But documenting the fact that I wrote this story makes me feel better. So thank you for indulging me.

Microsoft Word Properties showing I started it May 22.

Email to my BFF on May 24 asking her to proofread it:


Email to the BigBang Mods on June 14 providing rough draft:


The person claiming I stole this story from her said:

I wrote it during the summer before giving it to a 'friend' to look it over whilst I went on a long vacation away. I didn't realize that during that vacation that 'friend' has posted it up. I did not plagiarize anything. I will keep posting the story I work so hard on until someone forces it down with proof.

None of this may matter since she isn't saying when she supposedly sent it to her friend. And I guess it could be faked but not by me. I'm not nearly talented (or sneaky) enough to do it.

And now I am going to stop worrying about it and go do my homework, like I should have been!!!

Thanks to everyone for your support. It means more to me than you'll ever know!!!

I don't know how I managed to miss this whole thing, but I did! Someone stole another story! OMG! But that does kind of show how good your writing is, that people think enough of it to steal it. Maybe? But real people know you wouldn't do such a thing.

Thank you! It's hard for me to believe that anyone would think they could get away with stealing my story. Especially since I have 76 stories posted and she has one which isn't even hers!!!

You know I'll keep y'all posted.

is it bad that I want to leave a comment as H50Fan saying:

"I checked out the other story and this is a fake. I'm sorry T'Key'la that your story was stolen."

because you know, H50Fan is defending the author who stole it and I have a feeling that it's just the author logging out of their account and leaving a comment like that.

I think you're right. Interesting that only one person believes the thief and she's anonymous!

The whole thing is just surreal.

so say this person did go on a "long vacation" this is October you posted in September (right?), summer was June/July/August, I don't think anyone can afford to take 3 month vacations anymore, and if they can, I hardly think they'd be writing fanfic.

has anyone gone to your page to say that you stole the story from this other author?

Yeah, I was curious about the really long vacation too.

The only comment I've gotten on my story is that it was stolen by this other person.

I've been out of the loop for a few days. Man, this sucks! Maybe you should take everything down from ff.net. I can't believe that not only has it happened again, but the other person is claiming she wrote it first. That's horrible and awful. Makes you want to slap the sh*t out of that person.

Imitation is the best form of flattery, but stealing someone's work and putting your name on it is cowardly, unimaginative, and slimy.

We know you wrote the story.

Hope this incident doesn't totally ruin your day.

I've considered taking down everything from Fanfiction but for better or worse, I have quite a few followers on there. And I don't want to be run off. That makes it feel like the plagiarizers are winning.

It annoys me that she did this but it isn't a day ruiner by any means!

Thanks for the support!!!

(((hugs back)))

Of course you wrote this fic, it's time the other 'author' grew a backbone and owned up that she stole it from you!

Thank you so much!!! I had a moment of panic where I was afraid people would think I had stolen it but that has since passed. I know anyone who reads my stories knows my work when they see it, no matter whose name is on it.

Thanks again!!!

You shouldn't have to provide proof that the story is yours. She should have to show the proof.

I am getting more and more tempted to post this to stop_plagiarism on your behalf. Cause really? This biatch really does have a set of brass balls the size of King Kong.

I haven't reported it to stop-plagarism yet but I'm going to. I don't know that it will help but at least I'll alert them that it's happening.

Thank you again for the support!

I think you're wise to post your proof and I'd show the stop palgiarism comm and ffnet this proof.

And yes not only do we know the truth and the one person who appears to be on the plagiarizer's side doesn't have the guests to actually log in.

I'm going to post it to stop-plagarism and send my proof to ff.net. Don't know how much good it will do but at least I'll stand up for my story!

Thank you!
