A rather unfortunate event

I'm sure some of you saw this over on time_and_chips, but I got plagiarized tonight. Just what you want to see, someone taking one of the stories you've worked very hard on and bastardizing it and calling it their own. Anyway! The mods at t&c agreed with me and removed the post, but the person who posted it still has the story up on their own personal lj (http://xxebonyxx.livejournal.com/) as their work. So I'm wondering if anyone out there who feels comfortable enough to do so, would be able to go over there and gently (please gently and civilly, I don't want to be too bitchy and rude about it) make aware to the girl that she's got work up there that isn't hers. I'd be a great favor and I'd be very much in your debt.

While I'm here, I just want to tell everyone out there who reads my stories how much I appreciate your comments and just the fact that you read my stories. It means so, SO much to me that you enjoy them, and while I may not always be the best at responding to feedback, I always read every comment and am so glad you took the time to say so. So thank you all out there for everything. :)

I feel like saying "release the hounds" right now, that would be rather apropos...

Thanks kindly,
Aenaria

I assume the offending post on that journal is the most recent one? Just want to make sure I hit the right target...LOL...

You are correct sir! ;) But yeah, that story compared with my latest one (next post down). I saw it and definitely did a bit of a O_o. Then I spent half of the night online with sopdetly panicking about it, LOL.

Hmmm...I took a look, and you're right. Too bad, really. I left the author a polite note.

Thank you kindly Mazarin! I really do appreciate it, no one should ever have to deal with that - and thank you for doing it politely. :)

Nice is good, most certainly. She seems young, and while that's not an excuse, I don't want to be too harsh. Thank you very kindly for leaving a note there. :)

Hey you, I left a message this morning as well - was very polite. Seriously, if you look at both fics side by side, it's uncanny.

I just checked. The journal's been deleted! :) Justice is swift.

I was too shocked to be coherent (or polite) last night, but I see they've deleted their journal now. Really, they took the skeleton of your lovely story but left out the soul.

You flatter me too much, really. ;) But yes, shocked was an understatement. It didn't come across here in ye olde journal, but over IM that night with paiger1218 and sopdetly most of my conversations with them consisted of "OMGWTF?!??@?" and incoherent ranting. *g* The journal's gone, as Paiger let me know at work (who has blocked lj and any personal websites of the sort, so I missed a few hours), which is a huge sigh of relief.
