Fanfiction on archive without my consent  
Hi all! It's been another few months, but I wanted to pop in and address a rather serious matter, since I'm sure it's not just isolated to me. My story Severed and Sewn was recently nominated at the Fuffy Fan Awards, which is awesome. Less awesome is that the link to the story did not redirect back to my Livejournal, but to a Fuffy archive called Oralfxatn. Not only was my name mistyped, but I was never contacted by either the site owner or site webmaster asking if I gave permission to have my work archived there.

While I do prefer to have my work read at my Livejournal, I have consented to a few fictions being posted at personal or pairing specific archives and was always contacted about whether this was okay or not. A lot of my Spuffy work you can also find at Spuffy archives, but that was self-selecting and I posted it myself. 

I just contacted both the site owner and webmaster about removing this story immediately. I encourage those of you who read or write the pairing to have a look at their author list and direct this to anyone who might be affected. I get the feeling that I'm not the only person this has happened to -  http://oralfxatn.com/fiction.htm. Some names I recognize are amybnnyc , beergoodfoamy, brutti_ma_buoni , femmenerd , glossolalia , idyll , only_passenger , zulu , tabaqui , and voleuse .

A more updatey post about myself coming shortly, including news about Hawaii trip (not Australia) and my awesome Beetlejuice Halloween costume.

Nice to see you, and sorry to hear this has happened.

Indeed. Always annoying when stuff like this crops up. Felt responsibility to spread the word about it.

But it is nice to see everyone! I've been away too long. I'm going to try and start posting more frequently. Probably not fic, but it's a start.

I was always very careful and asked permission before adding anything to my website (when I ran it anyways!). Sorry to hear this is happening to you (and others).

p.s. - your livejournal banner is smokin' hot. ;)

I know. You and many others are awesome and respectful about contacting authors about archiving fic. Most people will say yes when asked and it takes practically no time at all. It's a shame when things like this happen.

Thanks for the compliments about my banner! I love it. It was done by the very talented framedinlove. Your icon is also super sexy!

Definitely not cool. Sorry to hear that's happened.

And thanks for the heads-up; they actually did ask my permission, though obviously I have no idea if they usually do.

Less nice to see that happen though. :-P Hope you can sort it out.
