Re: [Beta_Unlimited] Digest Number 344
- I was under the impression that this affected actor
stories. More specifically, in the real person
but only the actors. As far as I can tell, there's no
mention of musicians, boyband or otherwise. Here's
message quoted from the main page of fanfiction.net:
"As today, actor based stories are no longer allowed.
fiction are stories revolving around the real actors
that have portrayed fictional roles in tv shows or
Writing about actors behind a fictional work
has very little to do with the work itself and is not
part of FanFiction.Net. As much as we would like to
FanFiction.Net is not
designed or structured for writings of every possible
format. We do want to encourage writers who wish to
these types of stories to have the initiative
to create a dedicated website for their unique needs.
updated rule is in effect immediately and authors with
affected stories will have until April 21st to backup

We've all got our little secrets; let us keep them
while we can.
We have so little else.
Yes, but I thought when they said actor based stories
that they might also mean any real life fic....I don't
know, I wasn't exactly sure that they only meant movie
and TV real people. I don't know if they would mean
music group artists in the catorgory or not.
I guess I just wanted to make sure that people were
prepared for the possibility.
As someone from another group pointed out, the reason
they are probably doing this is so that they won't get
sued for slander....because a person writing about a
real person could say some bad things in their fics
about the real person.
I was thinking that the same thing applied to any real
person. They could also be sued for music group
slander too, couldn't they?
So that's basically why I sent the message
out.....just in case they meant all real people stories.
