See? I gave everybody here an opportunity to tell me what a bad person I am and nobody did, because I fuckin' rule.

it never occurred to me until now to read the comments and OMG I love it even more.

Someone on Twitter pointed it out or I'd never have noticed it myself. The commitment to the conceit by everyone is just a delight.

Thrive to spite them

So I found a story on AO3 that isn't plagiarizing word for word, but taking some specific scenes from at least 2 different stories and rewriting them. And it's not like common things that happen in Supernatural or even common things that happen in AUs (this is an au) that you see like a meet cute type situation. It's more like specific scenes from, I think 2 different stories, have been taken and rewritten into this one.

How close does something have to be for it to be plagiarism?

"I'm useless alone." // "We're all useless alone. It's a good thing you're not alone."

Sounds close enough to me. I'd at least notify the authors.

I messaged the 2 authors, I hope I'm wrong about this.

I heard from the authors, both are aware of the story, the person who had the most ideas lifted knows the person and it seemed like they wanted to be flattered by it but were also kind of miffed by it but hadn't said anything because they didn't want to embarrass the writer.

That's good of you, askye. I would want to know.

It was so obvious I had to say something.

There's some controversy online about the OTW election, it's a little unclear to me but one of the board candidates is in favor of censorship? I haven't been paying attention as I'm not a paying member right now.
