hey i’ve seen a bunch of j*hanna//the/mad on my dash lately and here’s a reminder she ships sh//eith (a ~25yo and a 16yo) and draws g/nderbends (i’m sure there’s more but that’s all i can remember off the top of my head)
Plagiarized fics - asking for help from the 1D fandom
Hi everyone! I’m poking my head in your door from the Haikyuu fandom to ask you guys for help. I have spoken to quite a few people in the One Direction fandom thus far and I have been overwhelmed by their kindness, support, and how fast everyone I talked to acted to help me and my friend get this sorted out.
It came to my and my best friend ellessey-writes’s attention (confusing names, sorry! I’m Esselle) this morning that many of our fics had been stolen by the Tumblr/AO3 user Fruxoo, who has since deleted her accounts.
Here are two screenshots of Fruxoo’s fics, posted in April. The first is a direct copy of my story Hunger, completed last June 2016. The second is the summary from Ellie’s story Tea and Sympathy, posted January of this year. The entire text of every fic Fruxoo stole has been copied almost exactly word for word from our fics, changing only the names and other relevant character info.
I messaged her privately and asked that she post an explanation on Tumblr, as well as replace the text of her stolen works with links to our respective stories, in order to notify any readers who enjoyed these works. Unfortunately, she didn’t respond. Now that she has taken everything down, that’s no longer possible.
It would mean the world to Ellie and I if people would help spread the word about what happened. Last year, between the two of us, we wrote 626,000 words. We poured all our energy and love (and time!) into these stories, and to have someone copy them word for word, lie to people who were kind enough to comment or send asks as if they had thought up the ideas on their own, and interact with other people in the 1D fandom based off of love for OUR writing, is devastating to us both. This was going on for at least 2.5 months.
They also took my incubus story Dreamless and reposted it as Lilin. This fic was posted as a part of a collab for my close friend’s artwork.reallycorking drew this (VERY NSFW) art as part of a 30 day challenge, and the two of us worked together for a full month on Dreamless. Here is my fic masterpost for last year, and a link to my AO3.
I wanted to share links to the rest of our work because we don’t know how many stories she stole (it seemed like there were around 10 in total). We didn’t even have time to make a note of everything before she removed her accounts. So we don’t know what people read and might want to re-find (if there’s any interest cross-fandom).
Again, the One Direction fandom has been so incredibly supportive (Gina, Ange, phd-mama, Emmi, Lisa and everyone who was so helpful and understanding). Ellie and I started off the morning crushed, and now I have comments in my inbox on the fics that were stolen, and asks on Tumblr showing support, and it’s nearly brought me to tears. Thank you all so much. If anyone who sees this would be kind enough to get the word out there in any way (reblogs, just telling your friends who’ve read these stories, anything!!), we’d be incredibly grateful.
THANK YOU, to everyone who takes the time to read this.
oh wow! that's really neat! i'm really glad to see representation, both good and bad characters, in media!
yea except that character isn't ace they're gay coded bc they've acted flamboyantly and turned down people of the other binary gender before so please don't steal our characters. and if they're not gay they're straight bc they've never shown interest in dating anyone!! don't make things up it's just sad :))
every time I listen to Sign of the Times I remember staying up until midnight and listening to bbc radio 1 just to hear it play for the first time and crying uncontrollably when it finally did. I don’t think I’ll ever find the right words to express what this man means to me, but I’m so glad he exists and that I got to hear one of my favorite albums sung live yesterday by someone I look up to with every ounce of my being 💌
The Rangers are partly a hive mind now, the Morphing Grid combines them. It was meant to be instant when the coins chose them, like with Zordon and his team, but because of the abstract and tremulous nature of Human brains it wasn’t: their brains rejected the Grid. They had to get to know each other and accept the Morphing Grid’s influence, and that’s why they suddenly can all move in sync after they Morph.
It’s incredibly useful and vital for fighting and piloting the MegaZord, but not in real life, because they even move in sync outside the suits: they subconsciously move as a collective, sometimes it subtle, sometimes it really isn’t.
Once during a particularly animated chat one lunch time, all of them laughing and happy and just enjoying their clique, Billy spontaneously did his usual tick of four quick claps, only the other four did it too in freakish synchronization, and it caught the attention of the. entire. cafeteria.
Trini started clicking her pen out of boredom in detention and none of them noticed they were doing it too until- OH MY GOD WILL THE FIVE OF YOU STOP CLICKING YOUR PENS- again it was freakishly synchronized, especially since none of them were looking at each other. Literally all of them were looking at their desks the entire time.
Kimberly has a habit of hooking her hair behind her ear and regardless of the fact only one of her four fellow Rangers have enough hair to warrant the action, they all do it too. Zack, Billy and Jason look… odd to say the least.
Zack clicks his knuckles. The others hate it and they hate it even more when they find they’ve picked up his habit.
The teacher in detention end up exploding at someone else in the class for bad behaviour, and Jason gave this low whistle of ‘oop awkward’ which would have be ignored had the other four not also done it and turned the man’s wrath on them instead.
Literally it’s FUCKING. WEIRD. watching the five of them walk ANYWHERE TOGETHER BECAUSE THEY’RE IN PERFECT SYNC FROM EACH STEP, RIGHT LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT LEFT, PAUSE, RIGHT LEFT- HOW THEIR ARMS SWAY TO WHERE THEY’RE LOOKING WHAT THE FUC-
Kimberly’s ex-squad said it was “so cute how you’ve trained your own little loser squad” and all five of them flipped her off at the same time.
Luckily it’s only when they’re within a certain proximity of each other and only applies to whichever Rangers are together. So if it’s only Trini and Kim, only those two will move in sync, while elsewhere Billy, Jason and Zack hanging out move in sync with just the three of them.
Their synchronized movements is reason no. 4396835986 why Zack’s mother, Jia, knows they’re the Power Rangers.
As the Red Ranger, Jason subconsciously knows what each member of his team is feeling about something. So if there’s a decision that needs to be made he just… knows, he doesn’t know how or is even completely aware that he knows, if someone isn’t happy and if a true consensus has been made.
[ Bonus crack headcanon that isn’t serious but still hilarious:
Zordon was being literal when he said Jason spoke for the whole team. He’s not just leader but he’s a mouthpiece and if one of his team has something really burning on the tip of their tongue he sometimes says it in their stead.
Kimberly’s parents arguing about Kim and how they disapprove of her new friends.
“Assholes!… what the fuck Trini!? Sorry, Mr and Mrs. Hart… only I’m not sorry you dicks- Zack!” ]
