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 - Some names I recognize are amybnnyc , beergoodfoamy, brutti_ma_buoni , femmenerd , glossolalia , idyll , only_passenger , queenzulu , tabaqui , and voleuse .

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