Celebration #s 9 and 10. Today, I celebrate Lisa and Amanda (and Rachel).
In light of what is going on for some of my favorite fan fiction writers, I have decided to add on to my “celebrate someone” posts. Even though I already made this post about Rachel yesterday, she is in inherently included in this post as well. :D
Lisa (aka xmonalisa) and Amanda (aka privatestorm) are awesome. They write some of the best fan fics around. Their characterization is spot on, and their plot ideas are unique and well executed. Recently, one of the stories jointly written by these three ladies has been plagiarized. I won’t go into details, but let’s just say this other “author” should have thought twice before messing with the Puckleberry bubble.
Amanda and Lisa (and of course Rachel) have always been more than accommodating when it comes to giving people advice or props about their own writing (note that I said their own writing). Like I said, these ladies are some of the nicest people I’ve talked with when it comes to writing. They do not deserve to have their work treated this way. Yet, through it all, through their anger (rightfully placed of course) and through their hurt, they are still super classy.
So, today, Lisa and Amanda (and Rachel), I celebrate YOU. <3
