I have had a few too many occurrences lately of people copying my stories, providing downloadable links to a story of mine, and posting my story word for word on their LJ.
The only place I have ever posted my stories is to this LJ, and it is the only place I want them read. The only people that have my permission to repost my story are the translators that I have communicated with.
I do not like the idea of my story forever being out of my reach. Yes, it might be strange but please respect my wishes. I have never liked locked journals, but I like thievery less. If suddenly you have to sign in to view my LJ this would be the reason behind it.
I have a feeling one of the people who copied my story to her LJ is just annoyed/throwing a fit and trying to get my attention because she can’t read the end of TFAN. In fact I get a lot of complaints (pms) from TFAN readers because they can’t read all of it. My beta has TFAN and when she is done I will post all of it……well I will if certain people have not driven me crazier than I already am by then. Please do not PM me asking for TFAN. I WILL NOT UNLOCK THE OLD VERSION OF IT.
