I HAVE TO HELP WARN OTHER AUTHORS & READERS OF WHAT HAS JUST HAPPENED TO ANOTHER AUTHOR . THE LOVE, CREATIVITY AND HARD WORK THAT ALL THE AUTHORS PLACE HERE FOR OUR ENJOYMENT SHOULD BE RESPECTED! SO HERE I HAVE COPIED & PASTED AN AUTHORS NOTE TO HELP EVERYONE KNOW WHAT HAS JUST HAPPENED!
To All My Fellow Twifans:
I am deeply troubled.
Last week, it was brought to my attention that another "writer" on fanfiction, aashi16, had essentially copy/pasted "An Untitled Continuation of the Twilight Saga" and placed it on fanfiction under the title "Life After Breaking Dawn" as her own work.
In an attempt to be magnanimous and wanting to give her the benefit of the doubt, I messaged her privately asking her to take it down.
She refused and maintained that the story was her own. On her profile, she claims to be sixteen years old. Regardless of the fact that she is a decade younger than me, I feel that she is more than old enough to comprehend the enormity of her actions and offer some kind of remorse for her theft.
Clearly, she is incapable of such maturity; but that does not mean she should be excused.
I then reported her to fanfiction as violating the Terms of Service. The story she posted was not an original work of the user listed as the author.
I followed-up and tried to reason with her. She demanded that I stop claiming she had stolen my work. To prevent me from messaging her further, she disabled the "Private Message" function in her fanfiction profile.
Many of you have written to me in support and acknowledgment. Some have gone as far as to report aashi16 as well. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate it. I've even heard from some of you that she messaged you back saying I stole the story from her. Utterly ludicrous.
Whether you are a writer, painter, actor, musician, dancer, etc., your artistic contributions are extremely personal. They are a labor of love, and the theft of such painstaking effort is one that profoundly disturbs me.
I am writing to you all because I want to ask your help and also give you a chance to save my story.
If fanfiction does not remove aashi16's stolen story in one week from today, I will be removing my work from the site permanently.
If only one person read it on her profile and believed the story to be her own, the damage to artistic integrity would still be irreparable.
I encourage you all to take a moment to comment on aashi16's creative use of copy/paste in her "Life After Breaking Dawn". Because there is only a single hundred thousand word chapter in it, you can only comment once, so please make it count.
I also request that you comport yourself respectfully, and do not harass a sixteen year old girl beyond pointing out her theft and requesting that she do the right thing.
If "Life After Breaking Dawn" is not gone in a week, "An Untitled Continuation of the Twilight Saga" will be.
I cannot continue to share my work on a site that does not enforce its own Terms of Service.
It breaks my heart.
I do not mind if you wish to download the story and save it on your own computer. I merely ask the same thing I asked of aashi16 – please credit the person responsible for the writing.
Thank you all so much. I shared so much with so many of you when I wrote the story, and I will cherish the memory forever.

I must honestly say that I love this story! I apperciate being taken along this fabulous journey however I do not under any circumstances appreciate Halward in any shape or form - he is not a nice "thing" - he must be stopped - this situation cannot continue as I cannot read to the end when the end comes if Bella is not reunited with her beloved Edward - surely at some point she realises that she is turning into a raving lunatic - perhaps Carlisle could come and talk to her or even that stupid Dr Gerandy - help her - give her some Prozac at least! Jacob, not a fan of him, I do like the wolves but I think that Jacob is very immature and too impulsive for Bella! Hurry up and update as I am hooked!
| Biddy429 chapter 3 . 3/1/2010
I cant believe you are making Alice stop him from seeing her and she wants this! Argh - if this ends badly then all I can say is "you will be the meal" ha ha - Fab story by the way - I am enthralled - great twilight fix for today! Now I must go read the next chapter!
| Biddy429 chapter 2 . 3/1/2010
Definitely has a JACKASS in her head - I dont like him at all - mean guy he is! She shouldnt listen to him - hope she doesnt!
| IrishLoveForever chapter 4 . 3/1/2010
I'm glad to see you updated! Love love love crazy Bella. Can't wait to see how Edward reacts to Bella's inner voice!
| PLEASE READ chapter 1 . 2/22/2010
Very IMPORTANT! Please,please read through whole review post
It's not even Fanfiction admistrators who are causing this problem of the removal of Fics rated M, but a groups of, kids, mostly boys with god-like complex who run a hate group called Literate Union.
Please feel free to use all this info with in an Author's Note if you like or send it to all your loyal readers, ask them to pass this message verbatim however they can, or ask them to send this email to FanFiction admin at reportabuse . There is also a petition, please sign at s/5734048/1/Petition
I don't know why the Twilight authors and fans are not fighting back and are letting the Literate Union members get their way and win. As a result I've seen many terrific authors taking their stories to many different sites and leaving FanFiction. All the hard work and time authors put in to write stories put to waste with fewer readers following.
This is the email that I sent fanfiction about the attacks from the scum who run Literate Union.
/u/599541/ - Lord Kelvin – Moderator for the Literate Union
/u/1600268/Georgasaurus - Georgasaurus/kittysaurus - Co-Founder of the Literate Union
/u/1935085/ - Ever heard of a dictionary – Co-Founder of the Literate Union
The three accounts and two forums above are violating the terms of service for fanfiction.
The TOS say in Section 7B: " reserves the right to decide whether Content or a User Submission is appropriate and complies with these Terms of Service for violations other than copyright infringement or privacy law, such as, but not limited to, hate crimes, pornography, obscene or defamatory material,or excessive length. may remove such User Submissions and/or terminate a User's access for uploading such material in violation of these Terms of Service at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion." A hate crime is defined as: a crime if it involves the use (or threat of use) of force, intended to hurt and intimidate. Obscene is defined as: offensive to one's feelings, lewd. And, defamatory is defined as:defaming or tending to defame; slanderous.
The Literate Union takes part in hate crimes and obscene or defamatory material. They target authors who write in certain genres and they take it upon themselves to “constructively criticize” them by telling these authors that they cannot write and that their story is crap. They also leave spam reviews that have nothing to do with the stories. The obscene/defamatory material that they partake in includes, but is not limited to:
Georgasaurus (now known as kittysaurus)
2010-02-01 . chapter 19
"I look forward to this story being deleted and two authors leaving the site. Reposts of chapters are against the rules, and so you are reported again.
Co-Leader of the Literate Union
2010-02-01 . chapter 19
Posting non-story chapters is illegal on FFN. You are ripping off your readers by providing them no content, but still wishing to generate review 's comparable to getting a candy wrapper instead of of you novices can squirm as much as you wish, but this story was supposed to be rated MA. MA was forbidden on this site for years, so I wish the poster and the public a good trip to adult fan fiction dot net. They host such uploads and offer plenty of competition for an aspiring senseless smut uploader. There, you won't need to mask your story as something friendly to underage individuals. Consider redirecting your complaints to Georgasaurus in the Literate Union a nice, abuse-free day."
The Magic Flying Walrus
2010-02-02 . chapter 1
"Tell me, Shannon, how's your son doing? Does he know you can't write for crap? Oh, the shame he'll feel when he realizes his mother is so bad at writing, she has to write cheap smut that has no excitement factor at all. It's as if a large, invisible hand has picked up your characters and started smacking them together, like a child playing house with her favorite dolls."
This last review was the worst of them all. This person went to my profile and used the personal information I shared with fanfiction and then wrote this “review” and left it for all to see. All of these reviews are considered spam and are harassing, obscene, and are defamatory. Although two of the reviews pointed out my mistakes, I did correct my story and it now complies with the guidelines.
The forums that these people hide under are just masks for their work against the authors and stories that the people in the Literate Union deem unworthy. They take it upon themselves to police the site and look for stories that they think are unacceptable in terms of spelling, grammar, plot, or content.
Then, the Literate Union sends mass emails to their members and post links in their forums so that the other members and non-member people who hang out in their forums can click on the link and report the stories numerous times. They even have members as young as 13 who are asked to click on links to M rated stories and report them. M rated stories are only appropriate for ages 16 and up. By asking these young members to visit M rated stories they are engaging in the act of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor.
The excuse of the Literate Union is that the content on should be acceptable for any age and that anyone will click on the stories. May I present this information?
Stated in section 5F: "You understand that when using the Website, you will be exposed to User Submissions from a variety of sources, and that is not responsible for the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of or relating to such User Submissions. You further understand and acknowledge that you may be exposed to User Submissions that are inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable, and you agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against with respect thereto, and agree to indemnify and hold , its Owners/Operators, affiliates, and/or licensors, harmless to the fullest extent allowed by law regarding all matters related to your use of the site."
The Literate Union argues that the material in the stories that they oppose and object to is offensive, indecent, and objectionable. Yet, fanfiction’s TOS state that each person may be exposed to that kind of material and they waive any rights. These people have no right to police the stories on fanfiction and report them numerous times in one day just because the information was offensive, indecent, and/or objectionable.
The icing on the cake of this group is that they consider themselves above the rules and regulations that they attempt to enforce. The co-founder, Georgeasaurus, has a swastika on his profile which falls in with the hate crimes. And, one of their members, NaLaaSt has a pornographic story posted.
These people, these self proclaimed literate people, need to be stopped and their actions ceased. They have targeted a number of fanfiction authors and are attacking them through organized mass emails to the members asking them to contact the author and leave mean comments on their reviews and in private messages, and they repeatedly report the stories they deem unacceptable. One member even admitted to reporting a story over 25 times in a few days. That is harassment and stalking and should not be acknowledged or allowed.
Many popular authors have had to pull their stories or have had them deleted because of the Literate Unions actions. These authors are moving to other site and pulling large numbers of readers with them. This is taking away from and will continue to happen if the Literate Union is allowed to continue with their actions and forums and profiles.
The main fandom that the Literate Union targeted is the Twilight community. The Twilight community has been involved in numerous fund raisers including Fandom Gives Back for Alex’s Lemonade Stand and The Haiti Compilation where over $80,0 was raised for Haiti Earthquake Relief. I was one of those authors who participated. The Twilight community has a voice and we do make a difference.
Stop the Literate Union. Delete their forum and let the people on fanfiction rest easy that they will not be targeted unnecessarily. The Literate Union even has a list of stories in a thread on their forum that they are working to have removed. They are acting like the Nazi Regime and should not be allowed to continue with their actions. If they continue then will lose many loyal authors and readers.
Fanfiction is our home; please do not let us be run out of it by some bullies masking themselves as the Literate Union.
It is my understanding that also created . If was as easy to navigate and post on as then many authors would be happy to move their submissions there. However, it is difficult to post on and to navigate. If is not affiliated with adultfanfiction then fanfiction should either include an NC17 rating or an MA rating or completely remove the M rating altogether. The lines are too blurry and many authors are having their hard work stripped from them because they do not know the specific line where a story crosses from M to MA/NC17.
Please fix fanfiction, whether it be by adding a new rating or removing the M rating and by getting rid of the Literate Union. They are giving your site a bad name and reputation and running off many authors and fans.

I really like your story.
Will there be a new chapter soon?
| IrishLoveForever chapter 3 . 12/11/2009
great chapter! Can't wait to see more of Crazy Bella. Update soon!
| Peace in love chapter 3 . 12/10/2009
I love this chapter. I really like the characterization of Edward and Alice. I like how Alice and Bella are friends. And I completely seeing Edward not leaving Bella alone if she had rejected him in New Moon. Which makes me upset that Edward is so controlling. I'm glad Bella is realizing how controlled she is. I can't wait for the next chapter.
