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.

Besides the two stories listed above, we know As Long As You’re Smiling was actually copied from ellessey-writes​​‘s fic The Chronicles of the Virgin Asahi. We think this is the first fic they grabbed, due to the note on the summary. Here is a masterpost of all Ellie’s works from last year, and a link to her AO3.

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.

Tea and Sympathy [1956]

Manliness is not all swagger and mountain climbing. It’s also tenderness.

Plot: Tom Lee is a sensitive boy of 17 whose lack of interest in the “manly” pursuits of sports, mountain climbing and girls labels him “sister-boy” at the college he is attending. Head master Bill Reynold’s wife Laura sees Tom’s suffering at the hands of his school mates (and her husband), and tries to help him find himself.

Director: Vincente Minnelli

Actors: Deborah Kerr (Laura Reynolds), John Kerr (Tom Robinson Lee), Leif Erickson (Bill Reynolds)

Writers: Robert Anderson 

Happy DaiSuga Day!!!! Have some fluff in honor of the sweetest ship that ever did sail. (Read it here on AO3 if you prefer.)


Suga: can you make me some tea pretty please?

Daichi puts his phone down and looks over at Suga. His feet are in Daichi’s lap as he leans against the other side of the couch.

“Why are you texting me?” Daichi asks.

Suga: my throat hurts :(
Suga: and my head
Suga: if you could speak in delicate soothing tones only, that would be very much appreciated

Daichi hopes the look he gives his boyfriend fully communicates how pathetic he thinks he’s being.

Daichi: should I text you instead?

Suga: you can, but what I really want you to do is make some tea

Suga blinks at him innocently and smiles, and Daichi lifts one of his feet to bite the arch of it.

“Daichi!” Suga shrieks, pulling his feet away.

“Look at that,” Daichi says. “Your voice works.”

Hey,How are you? I hope you are doing well. Soo this is the first time I am asking for recommendations. Can you please rec some drarry fanfics with time travel and dimension travel (Harry travels to another universe) Please Please Pleaseeeeeeeeeee

Until you asked, I never realised how many wonderful and amazing fics I’ve read on dimension travelling and time travel! Btw, I’m doing great and omg Easter is so close I can’t wait to stuff myself with yummy chocolates - thanks for asking! ❤

Time Travel

  • Tea and Now Sympathy - by who_la_hoop (70k)
    It’s Potter’s fault, of course, that Draco finds himself trapped in the same twenty-four-hour period, repeating itself over and over again. It’s been nearly a year since the unpleasant business at Hogwarts, and Draco’s getting on with his life quite nicely, thank you, until Harry sodding Potter steps in and ruins it all, just like always. At first, though, the time loop seems liberating. For the first time in his life, he can do anything, say anything, be anything, without consequence. But the more Draco repeats the day, the more he realises the uncomfortable truth: he’s falling head over heels for the speccy git. And suddenly, the time loop feels like a trap. For how can he ever get Harry to love him back when time is, quite literally, against him?
    (The summary basically says everything you need to know about the fic, but it was such an enchanting and delightful story!)

  • Swish and Flick - by sdkshelly (7k)
    The Swish and Flick is the last place Draco wants to spend his Saturday evening—especially when he discovers Potter is also in attendance—and he can’t wait for the night to end. Unfortunately for Draco, time is not on his side.
    (Another story where Draco is trapped in a time loop where every day he wakes up next to Harry. But this fic is so hot and so great to read!)
  • Paradox - by faithwood (2k)
    An incriminating photo forces Draco to rectify the past.
    (The ending of this fic was so funny and honestly, Draco had it coming for him. A great one-shot!)

  • Tempus - by Ravenna_c_tan (85k)
    Did you ever wonder where the Hogwarts disappearing corridors go–or when? When Harry Potter finds himself at Hogwarts in 1927 he never expected that the first person he would run into would be… Draco Malfoy??
    (Another story with Slytherin!Harry. “Harry is magically transported back to Hogwarts in 1926, and until they find a way to return him to 1997, he is enrolled as a student. The very first student he meets is a blond Slytherin named Draco Malfoy.”)

  • The Seventh Turn - by MissSnakeyBoots (46k)
    The war is about to end but Draco Malfoy isn’t happy with the final turn of events. He alters the past and finds out how things could have been. However, was all of this meant to be, and can Draco really solve his problems with dark magic?
    (A re-telling of all 7 HP books all thanks to a bit of time-travel and Draco’s memories in a Pensieve)

Alternate Realities (Dimension Travel)

  • Life is a Twice Written Scroll - by lauren3210 (22k)
    The new world order hasn’t been kind to Draco and his family, and he wishes it could all be different. So does Harry, although not for the same reasons. But as Draco works to fix the mistakes he made in the past, he finds his reasons for doing so changing in a way he never expected. ‘
    (After the Battle of Hogwarts, Draco wonders what would’ve happened if he had done one thing differently in his past; he’s shocked to wake up the next day and find himself living in a world where he had made that particular decision. I loved reading about the different realities he experiences and it’s honestly such an entertaining story)

  • Secret of the Whole - by lauren3210 (18k)
    Snapshots in time as Harry and Draco grow up in a world without Voldemort, moving from enemies to lovers.
    (Sequel to Life is a Twice Written Scroll, detailing the last alternate reality Draco woke up in)

  • Progressive Displacement - by gatewaygirl (20k)
    Harry didn’t mean the wish that way. From his point of view, it hadn’t even worked.
    (Harry wishes he’d never learnt about Horcruxes, and then he’s suddenly transported into a different reality where he didn’t. But the thing is, there’s four different realities that are in this “loop” that Harry’s created. And Harry has to travel to every single one before he can get back to his own universe. Not gonna lie, I was so confused reading this at first, but it was honestly such a great read once you get the hang of it)

  • A Slytherin in Gryffindor Clothing - by mahaliem (43k)
    Draco hits his head and wakes up in a world where he’s a Gryffindor and Harry is a Slytherin.
    (This was absolutely wonderful! I’ve always loved Slytherin!Harry and Gryffindor!Draco and words cannot explain how much I love this fic!)

  • The If Sieve - by cest_what (36k)
    An If Sieve lets you see how things would have unfolded if somebody had made a different decision at a particular time.
    (Draco uses the sieve to see if he and Potter could ever be friends. And it’s heartbreaking to see Draco go through all these different realities only to find that he and Harry never became friends in that universe as well. A truly lovely fic)

  • Things That Seem - by Maeglin_Yedi (22k)
    A potion gone wrong. A desperate wish. A new future. And a…horse?
    (A potions accident causes Harry to wake up in an alternate reality where he’s a horse animagus and currently dating Draco Malfoy?? And the ending, oh god the ending is what made me love this story even more because it just ties everything together and I won’t spoil anything for you, but this is a brilliant story)

  • Extra

    Oh God Not Again! - by Sarah1281 (162k)
    Harry falls through the veil. He travels back to when he first learned he was a wizard and having to repeat his schooling years again, but this time with far more sarcasm and wit.
    (So just a heads up, this fic isn’t Drarry (there really isn’t any pairing tbh) but the humour levels in this story are amazing and despite there being no Drarry, Harry and Draco have a really good banter-bickering-out-to-get-one-another relationship)

“I suppose the part nearest me is Laura Reynolds in Tea and Sympathy. Of course playwright Bob Anderson didn’t know that, but he wrote Laura Reynolds and Laura Reynolds happened to be me. It was the coming together of a part and an actress - the same attitude to life, a certain shyness in life, a deep compassion for people who are being persecuted for anything.
