Hello my fellow readers and friends.
Many of you may know by now that there have been some problems over here at Fan Fiction Net but for those that don't let me recap briefly.
A group of kids started a group called the LawlClan. They have targeted Twilight FF and their goal is to remove stories that they don't feel meet the standards of FF Net. They reported many stories to the administrators of FF net who then proceeded to remove stories that were not meeting the guidelines. Now for the record, FF Net does state that sexually explicit language and situations are not allowed under the M rating and at this time they do not accommodate an MA rating. Their guidelines also say that they can remove a story that isn't meeting the rating guidelines. This part is not in question. Well, at least to me but what I do have problems with is that these stories were removed without giving the authors a chance to decide whether they would like to change their stories to meet the standards or remove them themselves. They were just removed without notice. In fact some stories were removed just because this group reported them even though the authors HAD been meeting the standards. It is very much a mess as this group of kids is causing havoc and in return many authors are leaving.
As you all know my stories are very explicit and I have no desire to change them or tone them down. They can't get me for grammar or anything like that as my amazing Betas make sure of that but they can get me for content as I know I am violating the M rating. So that being said, I opened an account at The Writer's Coffee Shop (TWCS) where I have posted all my stories. They have an NC-17 rating that does allow for lemons. Many authors are moving their stories over there and to other sites. I want it noted though that I will NOT close my FF Net account as I do love it here and have made many delightful friends and have had such a wonderful time with all of you. But I also don't want my stories lost so if I am targeted and you can't find my stories hop on over to TWCS. My author name there is LovinRob1 … www dot thewriterscoffeeshop dot ?uid=59171
I will keep ROAL and TMH/TMH Outtakes here until they are removed but I will post my new stories over at TWCS. As many of you know I have a TMH Novella that will post beginning August 1st featuring the one and only Daddy fucking C and then I have another new story called A Dry Heat which I will begin posting in July when ROAL finishes. So if you are so inclined hop on over to TWCS and add me as a Fav author so you will know when I begin posting these other stories. And of course if you want to review TMH and ROAL there that would be appreciated as well :-) Special shout out to amandac3, kalinca62 and dishie for copying their reviews from FF net over to TWCS. Thanks girls...Love you lots!
Now… for the issues at hand:
So for the upcoming weekend June 8th and 9th for a 48 hour period we are asking people to ban FF net as a way to bring notice to them about what they are doing and how they are handling things. Twilight is I believe their second highest group of stories and if they didn't get any hits from any of us that would affect them and possibly make them take notice of the atrocious way they are dealing with their authors. I am asking that you all avoid FF net Friday and Saturday (these are the highest traffic days)… there are over 1000 authors and readers who will be banning FF Net during this time period, myself included. Because of this I will NOT post the next chapter of Role of a Lifetime on Friday on FF Net but I WILL post it on TWCS so you can read it there and maybe check out the site. I will post the chapter to FF net the following Friday but I do urge you to avoid FF net, don't even go here, let them feel what it would be like if we all left.
Thank you everyone,
Proudly participating in the
Banning FanFiction Net for 48 hours (6/8 to 6/9)
