Anyone think this reads just a little bit like Last Night I Didn't Sleep?

Wow. We're both shaking here, because...flattering you like our fic, but dude...claiming it's your own is not fucking cool, okay?

Anyone else want to check the other fics in that series, make sure they're not yours?

Oh my GOD. She not only stole a story, but stole one from obviously popular authors, easily apparent by the two pages of feedback you have.

What the fuck, seriously. *seethes on your behalf*

I know! It's like...how did you think this wouldn't get noticed?

Maybe she figured them being different fandoms would let her get away with it? Who from the Scrubs fandom would be reading HEROES slash, right? The answer of course being, duh, lots of people, as lots of people are into more than one fandom. >.<

RAWR. I hope reporting it helps!

*giggle* Well, let's hope. As I've said a couple times already to Thuri--I'm amused that the person who roared over to defend her against us is the one who brought it to our attention.

...and the one who, while apparently ready to rip us to shreds, is now claiming it was probably an accident. *facepalm*

I'm sorry, how exactly do you accidentally change the names in someone else's story and post it to a community? Oh, and answer feedback. With things like:

I have no idea where this ball of twisted angst came from, but I enjoyed writing it a lot.


This one might be my favorite too. Of course I say that about each one as I write it.

Yeah. Totally an accident. Oops.

So that girl did think you guys stole the thief's story?

JEEZ. You must always double check these things. I read this thief's version before I made any comment. And since 'Last Night I Didn't Sleep' is one of my favorite Cox/JD I had no problem yelling at my computer screen calling this THIEF every name in the book.

*hugs* We both appreciated your comments, both here and to her, more than we can say. It's wonderful to know our readers will stand up for us.

Thank you. Very, very much.

That's pretty much what we thought, yeah. We reported her to [livejournal.com profile] stop_plagarism and hopefully the case is cut and dried enough to get her blacklisted there. Not a lot else we can do, since we already have told everyone what happened.

But grrrr.

I'm so glad someone caught that. I can't believe the things people do.

I'm glad, too. Amused, that the person who brought it to our attention had come over to yell at us for stealing, since she'd misread the dates, but glad.

At least it should make it harder for her to do it again, if everyone's on the lookout when she posts, now.

That's really terrible, and reflects badly on fanfic writers in general. I guess I can't say anything that hasn't been said before (railing on your behalf, etc.), except that I think you guys are handling this with a great deal of aplomb which I think is admirable.

Since I've never actually commented on your lj before, I should perhaps introduce myself. I am a long-time lurker and fan of your fics (see how I did that -- FAN of your FICS, fan-fics...ha!). LOVE them, seriously.

Anyway, I'm just offering my support, sympathy, and indignant anger, for what it's worth.
