[Note re: broken graphic links 07/21/13]
PLEASE NOTE: For some reason, many many older posts of mine now have broken links instead of images. I will be working through all my previous posts verrry slowly and fixing them eventually, but if you find a post of mine with broken graphic links that you want to read sooner, drop a comment on it and I'll bump it to the head of the queue for recoding/reuploading the graphics and let you know when it's fixed. Thank you for your patience.
LJ Support is implementing a workaround (YAY! \o/), everything should be okay now, but please do let me know if you find any broken image links and I'll look into them. :-)

The backstory is here in a prior post.

Four of the five Supernatural eBooks of stolen fanfic this guy was selling have now gone 404, including the one with my story, so thank you all so much for your help and support! \o/

There are still eBooks up by this guy though: one Supernatural, two Game of Thrones, two Vampire Diaries, and one Breaking Bad. If anyone knows fic for these fandoms or can signal boost into those fan spaces, that would be great. The other Amazon seller found to have copied fanfic that is linked in the Tumblr post has had some taken down now as well, but some of it is still up. Please continue boosting the signal to make sure if these are stolen fanfic too (more than likely) that the original writers can know and fight back.

I've just received a PM from someone on fanfiction.net:

ETA: Putting some things to condense space on f-lists.

[Amazon eBook seller is publishing stolen fanfic for sale in ebook form including some of mine so anyone could be in there.]
Subject: STOLEN FIC

Hey!!

I just found our fanfiction on amazon to buy. Someone called Brian Lewis is selling it under the name "Supernatural: Hell Inn".... it is an exact copy of your story. Please go and check it out on .

You are the second person now, he also published other fanfiction!

Please, please, check it out!



The problem is to confirm this I'd need to buy the eBook. It galls me a little to have to give the guy money to find out if he's ripping me and other people off, but primarily (and quite ridiculously) it's not feasible for me to afford the purchase right now. [snip personal details]

The Amazon page does say however that if you have a Kindle and an Amazon Prime account that you can download the ebook for free. Does anyone have this access available and can take a look? He's got a bunch of other ebooks up from Supernatural and several other fandoms (it looks like he posted them all on this past Sunday). If it's the case with this one that the stories are plagiarized, the rest of the ebooks are likely similarly plagiarized, and if so, the word needs to be spread.

It really needs to be confirmed before anyone goes openly accusing this guy publicly online though.

ETA: Further info:

[another PM with further details]
Hey!

Yes, of course. Here are the basic infos:

Supernatural: Hell Inn
/Supernatural-Hell-Inn-Brian-Lewis-ebook/dp/B010M4QW6E/ref=sr_1_9?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1435671036&sr=1-9

FANFICTION: When the Fiddler Stops by CaffieneKitty
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3805518/1/When-the-Fiddler-Stops ORIGINAL

(I hope allows now to send links, haven't been on here for a while :D)

It is your story "When the Fiddler stops". I only downloaded the sample, which is two pages, but they are word for word your story. (The person uploaded four other books, which are stolen fan fiction, too, I posted a link on tumblr: sorry if I posted your name, I just wanted to get it out there for the ones I couldn't find... I can erase it from the post if u want of course)

I can make a screencap from the first two pages I have on my phone if u want.



Here is the tumblr page the person PMing me has set up outlining the situation. ETA:Reposted here.

ETA2:SCREENCAPS OF THE EBOOK. (Thanks to xxxkia for posting them)
MY STORY, WHICH I POSTED IN SEPTEMBER 2007


So there's proof.

So it seems this guy and either another guy or a second ID of the same guy has definitely plagiarized a bunch of fanfic writers and is right now making money off their work on Amazon, so spread the word so that other people can find out if this jerk is making money of their fanwork.

If anyone knows what to do about this, that'd be really helpful.

I've got a really annoying moving-related road trip to make today. Since I have zero cash, I have (without intending to) managed to pack myself the same bag lunch I had in grade 2 (minus the semi-frozen Super Socco drink box): Peanut butter and Jam sandwich and a banana. In the process I have rediscovered some
[technical tweaks to my peanut butter and jam sandwich construction methods.]
technical tweaks to my peanut butter and jam sandwich construction methods, made in response to sandwich construction issues as they arose.

-If you use bread so rarely that you keep the loaf in the freezer to toast a slice at a time as needed, thaw the bread first.

-No, not toast. Thaw.

-Both sides of the bread.

-Let bread cool down and hope it doesn't dry into croutons.

-Spread the sticky things on the crustier side of each slice.

-There is definitely such a thing as 'too much peanut butter'.

-Spread TO the edges of the crust, not ON the edges of the crust.

-Use a little margarine on the jam side to keep the jam from soaking the bread to mush.

-Bread should not melt the margarine at this stage.

-Get real jam next time. (Whose bright idea was it to take something the consistency of half-set Jello, put mushed fruit in it and sell it as jam? They are evil.)

-The sticky sides go together, not sticky-side to dry-side (unless making a PB and J club sandwich, which doesn't pack well and uses too much bread for me. Also the cut banana in it would go weird too fast).

-Stick it in the fridge to firm up all the half-melted stuff spread on not-quite-cool bread before trying to cut it to fit in a sandwich bag.




Anyway. I'm off to do annoying adult things with my grade 2 dinner now. Blah. I miss Super Socco.

I don't remember if I posted about it when it happened, but the European Space Agency landed a probe (Philae) on a comet back last November, which was amazing considering it was like throwing a pea from Paris and landing it in the eye of the Statue of Liberty or something. However, due to some difficulties on landing it bounced into a shady spot where it could not receive solar power to recharge and had to go into hibernation, losing contact with the ESA. While it was on though, it got all the main science things they were hoping to get done done so it was a roaring success at the time but still, it landed and within a few days lost power and went to sleep.

The satellite it came from (Rosetta) which is still orbiting the 67P comet and (sending back pictures as the comet starts to change as it approaches the Sun) has been looking for the landing spot for months without much luck (try spotting a washing machine tucked into a shady nook somewhere in an area the size of Los Angeles when you're flying several kilometers above it and can't hover) and there's been a kind of heartwarming/wrenching #WakeUpPhilae twitter campaign going on, and school classes making models and kids having Comet Lander themed birthday cakes and so on. The ESA has cute anthropomorphized cartoon versions of the satellite and lander, each with their own Twitter feed and a narrative storyline about them which has definitely helped boost and maintain interest in the mission. XKDC's live comic coverage of the landing didn't hurt either.

To be honest, I figured it had already been a successful mission and that the little probe would likely never be heard from again. Space is big, comets are tiny, space probes are tinier and the universe is under no obligation to enable all real world events to have a satisfactory narrative arc. And that that was fine, even though it would be nice if it woke up and could do some bonus science and make a whole lot of people on Twitter happy.

Today it woke up.

And I am surprisingly emotional about it! It's like a happy ending! \o/

Philae has already sent back more data and will send back more when the satellite is in correct position to relay data to the ESA. Here's a news article outlining what's going on.

There are a lot of really excited scientists in Europe right now, and a lot of happy people on Twitter. And me. YAY! \o/

In the wake of the Nepal Earthquake disaster, the fandomaid Comm has set up a "Buy It Now"-style page to help promote donations to disaster relief charity agencies. According to the campaign alert there may yet be a full fandom auction for Nepal in future, but meanwhile there's the quick deals page.

For those new to fandom charity drives, the concept is simple: people offer to make fanworks (or send little gifts, or beta or whatever) in exchange for (in the Buy-it-Now style of auction) a set minimum amount to be donated by the first person to claim the offer. Further details of the process are on the page linked above. To help out you can claim and donate, or offer your talents, or signal boost the fundraiser to other fandom spaces, on LJ and elsewhere.

[After a crappy day of crap and more crap, I noticed there was a candle flame in my mug of tea.]


After a crappy day of crap and more crap, I noticed there was a candle flame in my mug of tea. No candles anywhere in the room, lit or otherwise; it's just a reflection of the overhead light, but I thought it looked cool, so tah dah. It's not like I was posting much of anything else on YouTube anyway.

(Yes it's a vertical video. I'm new at this and no one needs to see the rest of my desk anyway. :-P)

Terry Pratchett (author of the Discworld series, among other things) has died.

“No one is finally dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away — until the clock he wound up winds down, until the wine she made has finished its ferment, until the crop they planted is harvested. The span of someone’s life, they say, is only the core of their actual existence.”

- Reaper Man, Terry Pratchett
