204Draco Malfoy, the Amazing Bouncing... Rat? Plagiarized?
- ReeJan 25, 2006A friend of mine was looking for stories to nominate for the hposcars on LJ and long story short, she came upon the posting of Draco Malfoy, the Amazing Bouncing...Rat? here; http://www.fanfiction.net/s/582345/1/ under the name Sharon Armstrong ( http://www.fanfiction.net/u/158464/ ). Now, this story is like, one of the oldest D/Hr stories that are in our fandom. It's a story that many shippers have read first, and its well, a classic. Now, I don't know Maya (author of DMtABR) so I can't honestly say if she's actually this Sharon Armstrong, but while the story was originally posted on ff.net under Sharons name in 2002 - and last updated the same year, though not completed on that site - I find it odd that Maya would post her story on ff.net, not post the whole thing and post it under a name people do not know her as, especially as she posts it under Maya everywhere else. And, as this was back in 02, ff.net still allowed people to have the same authors name, so if someone had already taken Maya, she should have had no trouble using it as well. She's just have a number or two stuck to the name.In addition to that, Maya has other stories posted on her site - http://www.lasairandmaya.com/mayafic/ - that I believe she would post on ff.net as well, were she to post her stories there.Now, as soon as I've send this email out, I'm going to email Maya and ask her if she's posted on ff.net, and if so under what name. I'm also going to provide her with the links to where the story is posted. I just wanted to let you all know about it, and that I'm taking care of it. I'll update once its all taken cared of.At this stage, please do not contact ff.net, as I have yet to have a chance to take pics of the story. I do not want to risk it getting deleted before I get a chance to take those pics.Now, this may have been over for quite a while - the person hasn't posted a chapter in years - but she's still getting reviews on this story (last one not even 20 days ago) and I think that, even if she hadn't, it should be cleared up as its well, rude.Anyway, I'm on top of it.ReeCo-Mod
