[spn] dean - wait what?

(no subject)

It's been brought to my attention that an "author" over on fanfiction.net has been plagiarising one of my stories, doing a find/replace on the names & genders and claiming it as her own. And not just any story, but my reinventing 'love verse. This story is my pride and joy, my BABY, and this seriously is hurting my heart.

The person in question is WhatEverHappened on FF.net, and she seems to have taken a lot of the 'verse.

She took tell them we're like magnets and turned it into "Eye to Eye". Parts of waste our weeks and stuffed became "To the End".

Her A/N on the magnets rip-off: "A/N: Soooo remember how I wasn't going to do a sequel to Say it Ain't So that was a linear story? Yeah, I lied. This is set when they go to college and pretty much up until the summer after their freshman year. I have it all planned out and I'm super excited for it so the chances of me losing interest are like, zero."

Yeah, because I already wrote it.

Love 'verse is over 200,000 words and I've been working on it for almost four years, and to just see someone jack it and mangle it and call it their own, well. It really sucks. So if you want to go leave this self-proclaimed author a nice little "review", I really wouldn't mind. I've always wanted to be part of an angry mob. Here's even a handy dandy clicky link to leave a review.

Nothing like this has ever happened to me before, and for it to be my favorite thing I've ever written just makes me heartsick. She seems to have stolen a few really good stories from the SPN fandom, and this just can't stand.

Any advice on where to go from here would be greatly appreciated. Maybe an email to reportabuse@fanfiction.com?

ETA: Apparently, this girl posted her magnets rip-off as a sequel to another J2 story (the amazing My Heart Don't Beat the Way It's Used To by raina_at. It's been posted here as "Say It Ain't So", so be sure to report that one as well. Ugh.

I am completely awed, humbled, and grateful to everyone's reactions and responses to my earlier post about love 'verse being plagiarized. So many of you jumped to my defense and said such sweet things. You guys literally made me cry with all your support, and it just goes to show yet again that the Supernatural fandom (aside from the crazies) is full of the snarkiest, wittiest, best people ever. We stick together, and that's awesome.

As for the update: WhatEverHappened deleted all of "her" stories from ff.net along with her twitter and tumblr. She made no acknowledgment of what she had done, let alone an apology to me or any of the other authors she stole from, but at least the stories are taken down.

And now, to celebrate the end to this clusterfuck of an ordeal, I have a love 'verse timestamp to post! TAKE THAT, SUCKA!

In closing, I love you guys more than words can say, Supernatural fandom is the best family, and, most importantly:
