220*dramatic pause* I've been plagiarised
- ReeMar 10, 2006This isn't an outright plagiarism, however, lord, it's the same.My story - A Woman's Game http://community.livejournal.com/qo_ficexchange/25959.html - First posted 21st of December, 2004. I'm in the midst of editing this story, but this is still the original version.
quidditch_chic18's "story" - To Seduce... http://www.harrypotterfanfiction.com/viewstory.php?sid=181345&i=1 - Published with the two first chapters (it's a WIP, but she's basically just dragging it out) March 10th, 06.While so far I've not noticed any flat out copying, it's stupidly plagiarised. At one point, she's even writing; 'So, I think both of us should play a women’s game.' - Pansy to Hermione.While in her story, Pansy is going to seduce Terry Boot rather than Justin Finch-Fletchery or however it's spelled again, he - like Justin - was Pansy's first. The whole thing goes down in the library, with the actual first talk of it happening while they're doing potions. In my story, they're actually in Potions class, but it's still the same. Hermione and Terry are 'sworn to secrecy', just as Hermione and Justin are in my story.And of course, the big kicker that was in my story, how Draco and Hermione are really together, is in this story. Hermione even approaches Draco the same way in the library as she does in my story.Honestly, I don't think I have to explain more, do I?Oddly enough, despite all the plagiarists I've dealt with, I find myself paralyzed and I have no idea how to proceed. I've taken pictures and I'm now going to email this 'author' and then I'm going to see about emailing the archive mod. I've only been at this archive once before - earlier today, oddly enough - but I don't know how it works. *sigh*Also, there's a second story posted under her name. If it's the story I'm thinking of when I read the summary, then I'm going to need some help with reading that, as I haven't read the story I think of (The Given Choice by...um. Oh lord. I don't know).ReeCo-Mod
