STOP the destruction of Fanfiction.net!
Ever since it was opened, Fanfiction.NET had always been a place for avid fans-- of ANYTHING-- to feel at home. To express whatever is on our minds and truly let our love for characters, plotlines and scenarios shine through.
Now all of a sudden, FF.net has decided to go through a massive upheaval and remove thousands of stories from its library, some of the best fanfics ever written, gone, never to be read again. They are removing anything involving sexual situations, or violence, or inspired by a song, the list goes on. And we as readers see this as a gross waste of talent and incredible material.
Fanfiction.net has always been a place for us writers to 'Unleash our imagination' as the tagline states, and now we are having that right to freedom of speech and expression taken away from us. Since when are they allowed to dictate what goes into our stories? They are OUR pieces of work. What if the violence or sexual content is part of the plotline? This whole situation is absurd. There are better ways to deal with 'inappropriate' content than to remove it altogether. What about adult filters? Age restrictions? There are so many other options!!
So I'm asking please, for all us readers, writers, and fans alike... STOP THE DESTRUCTION OF FF.NET!!!!
Link to the petition -#
The above letter is a copy of the petition that I have signed in the hope of saving fanfiction.net from destroying itself.
I love writing stories.
I genuinly don't know what I would do if I didn't write stories in my spare time (and sometimes at work - LOL) and being able to post my stories on fanfiction.net has been wonderful...until now.
Now I am afraid that they may delete my stories or even my account for being deemed innapropriate when all I have done is explore my imagination in a way that I feel comfortable.
Most of the time I give my stories a higher rating than they probably deserve just in case!
I am currently backing up all my old stories on my computer so that if this stupid change goes through I can move to another more understanding sight.
Pelase don't get me wrong - I am not slating fanfiction.net.
This sight has been one of my best friends for years (I read my first story TEN YEARS AGO! OMG! I FEEL OLD!)
It has helped me to grow as a reader and as a writer and has fueled my passion for the written word.
I love this sight - I just don't want it to change.
