I've Been Plagiarized

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] loriel_eris for alerting me to the fact that my Jack/Daniel fic Bruised was plagiarized and turned into a Jack/Ianto fic called Utility Cupboard.

Much scorn shall be heaped upon the plagiarist (who has deleted her journal). *scorn*

In general plagiarizing fanfic is pretty retarded. No one is making any profit off of it and all the plagiarist is doing is earning comments off of someone else's creativity. And while it's always nice to hear that people love you—in the case of fanfic, they love the work, not you. So basically what they're saying when they give you positive feedback is, "I love this work that you didn't do." And, personally, I can't imagine that feeling is all that awesome unless the plagiarist is just getting off on tricking people.

Anyway, let's do a quick side-by-side comparison.

She Stole My Fic! (That Bastard!) )

Other SG-1 fics were plagiarized and are being identified here at [livejournal.com profile] stop_plagiarism. if you have a moment and are familiar with SG-1 fics, please stop by to help identify the other fics.

Remember kids: plagiarism is bad.
