First I know this is going to sound odd, but four of my drabbles were
plagiarized but I don't know who did it.
The only thing I'm absolutely sure of is it wasn't the person who's
name they were posted under. I've known this person for years and she
writes wonderful fics of her own. Also she's not stupid, the
plagiarized drabbles were uploaded to one of MY archives that requires
validation for all posts so obviously I'd notice.
I've spoken to the girl who's name was used and it wasn't her. The
person that did it used an email that was one digit off from her real
email so that I honestly hadn't noticed at first that it was wrong.
Not until she (the person who the account actually belonged to, not
the plague) tried to request a new password and it bounced back to me.
I've already removed the drabbles, and we've changed the email and
password on the account so the plague can't access it again. The other
author has also changed her passwords at all the other archives she's
used as a precaution since we're assuming this is someone that knows
hwer and wanted me to accuse her. I do have pics of the postings
though, not that it does any good since it was under a false account.
The drabbles in question are all linked at http://magical-
worlds.us/fictables.htm . Other than the links there the only places
I've posted them are my live journal (shannon730) and the LJ comms
they belong in either Joss100 or Fanfic100.
I realize with no idea who posted there is no way to track this person
down but I wanted everyone to be aware and on the lookout. Since I
don't believe (or want to believe) it's anyone on my journal flist,
I'm assuming it's someone from one of the comms that knows both of us.
At least I assume they know both of us and wanted her to be blamed.
Posting at my Drabble site made it so likely it would be caught.
If anyone has any ideas on how to track down this person I'd love to
hear them. Both myself and the other author would really like to find
out who did this.
