IMP!!

One of my stories was copied and posted at another site (which I strictly do not allow) and of course with no credit to me.

I'm really disgusted. I have taken every security measure I can think of: I no longer keep my entire chapters on IF, I have codes against right-click copying/highlighting in place on this blog, and I have all my stories copyright protected.

Short of restricting this blog completely, I've done everything.

I began sharing my arhi FFs for two purposes alone--to keep the fandom alive and get some feedback on my writing. Despite everything, I would like to still believe that most of my readers (even the silent ones) are honest people. 

So, I'm keeping most of my stories here still. My short stories, Secluded Island and Fateful Love, as well as Secret Passion will remain untouched. Desert Heat is something very close to my heart, something I've spent a lot of time researching and perfecting and I cannot risk it. So from now on, only the latest chapters of DH will be posted here. If you have been following the story closely till now, I think you deserve to know the ending. But new readers will have to wait several months to read it.

Mind Games was the one that was copied word for word and I really wonder how that person will continue the story now. The first 4 chapters have been removed; I will keep the rest up for those who reread it. For new readers, I will post a brief summary.

But this is my last warning and final attempt at this public blog. There's only so much I can take.

I hope you respect my decisions.

-tina

ps. It might be delayed, but I'm still hoping to update something this weekend. I won't let this deter me.

  3. Agree with you Tina di. Taking down the previous chapters is the only possible solution of this issue. I respect your every decision and i am with you in this and every situation BAS!!! people who are copying your stories should be thankful to you because you have kept ArShi alive. Hope they got the message loud and clear..!!

  5. that is so disgusting
    how can someone lay claim to something which they did not write?

    I support you in whatever you deem necessary to ensure
    that your work is not plagiarized

    should you decide to make this blog private
    please allow me access, as I have read all your stories

    I am currently reading Secret Passion, Desert Heat and Fateful Love

    Mind Games has been one of my favourites and I have re-read
    it a few times

    wish you all the success that you so rightly deserve

  10. Ohh nooo!!! Why do people keep posting other writers stories and not give the credit?

    I love reading all your stories although I have yet to read the latest chapter on DH. And I so love DH! And of course, everything that you have written that I have read.

    I don't even know what to suggest!

  13. Totally understandable! Plagiarism is sick! Both for the writer and the reader. It deprives the writer from the satisfaction of sharing their work and the reader from enjoying the actual writer's point of view. The wait for eACH chapter is only known by a true follower! Though I have been a silent follower till now.. I totally am lost in the flow of all the stories..I have read and reread every single story to the extent that I can quote to context! Plz ccontinue wrint

  15. I absolutely agree with you Tina and appreciate the step you have taken of removing your copyrighted stories..i am still wondering you care for us (a silent reader) so much that you will still be continuing the stories..i am really grateful to you because i always look forward to your updates especially DH and your updates have always made my day..Mind Games was the first story of yours that i read and i have been a great fan of your writing skills..i really pity that fellow who has copied your work.., arshi FFs are something which are really close us ..The Fandom..and it is not something about showing the world how great your imagination is..and that too by copying someone else's imagination..

  16. I repect your decisions Tina. Are you going to remove SP and DH and all other stories from here, I hope not because I have been your reading since day one of the stories. I hope whoever has copied your story , learns their lesson and apologies and gives you credit for your work. Thank you for keeping this blog open for us because for me this is the only place where I read your stories and if it gets blocked then I won't have access to it. :( I hope those cheaters stay away from your stories and let you writers write in peace and let us readers read in peace.

  17. tina you are absolutely right with your decision. we are with you. we don't want to loose such a fantastic writer because of some stupid and disgusting person.

  18. I completely support your decision Tina! Honestly i have reread each and every story of yours so many times that i think i know it by heart! Will miss Desert heat's untouchable first few chapters but it will forever be in my heart!

    ReplyDelete
  19. i completely agree with you, your writing is amazing, and you should be credited for that. i'm glad you will carry on still don't want to lose your writings just because someone cant come up with something on their own and feel the need to copy.

  22. Hi Tina! I'm so sorry to hear about this plagiarizing mess! I don't understand what a person thinks they will achieve by stealing someone else's work! Thank you so much for keeping this blog going and allowing us all to continue reading these stories we love oh so much! I've been a silent reader for the most part but I'm a big fan of your work! I'm really invested in DH and SP right now and I'd be sad not to be able to read them anymore so thanks for continuing and keeping them accessible!

  28. I truly support your decision
    Taking down chps seems like the only possible way
    Thankfully you didn't decide against continuing the story like some authors but I still respect their decision as its their work but I feel its a bit unfair on the parts on honest readers
    Dnt knw whats satisfaction these cheaters achieve in receiving feedbacks as appreciation.
    And update this weekend...yayeee

  32. Plagiarism is becoming more and more pressing issue. How cheap of those people to steal other's hard work and post it like their own. Loyal readers are losing many writers in IF also because of this issue.

    I really love your stories a lot. I was waiting and really looking forward to read Shameless from long time. You did right thing of removing some parts of your stories. That serves those disgusting stealers right. We are with you even though we miss your stories.

    Will wait to read DH. Thank you very much for writing and letting us read such Awesome and Fantastic stories. Wish you very good luck in all your future endeavors.

  33. not again.... when someone likes another writers story so much why cant they just give their frens the link and mention abt the original writer instead of Copying it.
    How will they enjoy the readers comments when the comments are actually for the original writer..... its so sick.
    Thanks for not losing the spirit TINA... we are with you in whtevr decision u take

  34. I cant believe how sick some people can be to take credit for someone elses work. Its the lowest of the low!! I love ur stories tina and im SO glad ur not punishing everyone for the mistakes of an individual! Ive said this a few times before and ill say it again - im completely and utterly addicted to ur stories!!

    I hope the plagerism stops immediately and u continue to share ur beautiful stories with us!!

    Thanks for still letting us read ur stories... really appreciate it!

  36. Hi tina.. i have been a silent reader to your blog.. But i m really ashamed that people can copy things of others and not even give them the due credit..

    I really am grateful for you to still keep ur blog open..
    I m also sorry that i havent commented before on your blog.. but i am definitely going to do so henceforth...

  40. This is very disappointing to hear Tina! Since I'm a writer myself, I totally understand how it feels when you put in precious time and effort to write and the only thing that makes it worth it is the feedback you get from readers! But there are always those handful of people that are deceiving and think its ok to steal some one else's work.

    I really hope this is sorted out for you soon! Stay strong till then <3 you have the love and support of all your faithful readers!

  44. This is horrible. Why do they have to copy, they can share your link if they want someone to read your stories. Your stories are amazing. Almost everyday I check your blog for updates. I have been a silent reader but i have been reading your stories from the start. I had been reading shameless but due to exams and stuff I had stopped coming on IF due to which i couldn't read the whole story. Believe me when I say that Desert Heat is fabulous. It's not only close to you but also to us THE READERS My IF id is (sweetpinky123)

  49. Hi Tina, I don't why a person who cannot write in the first place, copies other's hardwork and claim it as theirs. i really hate people who have no shame in them to copy others work. because of this, many good writers have quit IF. Don't know when this will stopl. i really feel bad that your work also has been copied. Dear, whatever decision you take i am with you. Secret Passion and Desert Heat is very close to me. Don't loose hope and continue to do the good work you are doing.. take care..

  51. This is simply pathetic... even when u trusted ur readers sharing something u had never done and someone stopped so low to steal other's work and post under their names... no ethics and manners and they have no idea by doing such act they indeed are making other to question their upbringing.... stealing is stealing no matter what... if u think that oh its just a matter of words nothing else than u r wrong sweetheart.... u r doing the stealing and in short u r thief....I would say go for what Jen said and do those steps only then ppl will know tht they will need to go through proper court and punishment for such crime as plagiarism if u have so much spare time and u want to get praises learn from these writers and bring something of ur own initially it wont be good but at least it will not show u a low person such pathetic acts and people I HATE PLAGIARISM AND PLAGIARIZERS

  54. Hi Tina, i m new to blog, just 2/3 mnths before i came to about stories written on our beloved ARSHI, since than i m reading all the stories on them including yours & i have become addicted specially urs. u r my fav writer the way u write scenes whether ful of passion or emotions are tremendous..

    i hav been a sillent reader i hav never commented before bcoz im not good at words, i cant express what i feel but right now i cant stop myself to comnt after reading ur this note. those people whoever copied ur work simply dont hav self respect for themselves. if they want to write stories than they should use thier brain & comeup with new concept by taking inspiration from other writer not by coping thier works.

    i just wanted to let u know that u hav full support from ur readers including silent(like me). u r a true fighther who fight against plagiarized.
    til date i hav been a silent reader .(.big sorry for that) now onwards i m going to comnt whther it is for 2/3 words or more..

    big thanks to keep this blog public bcoz of that we still can relive our magical jodi Arshis power. & by any chance in future if u plan to keep this blog private pls pls allow me access. i cant even think about not reading ur work. i hav read all ur works. my fav are mindgame, sp & dh
    though i cant get a chance to read shamless but i m sure that one also awsome..

    pls keep going my best wishes are with u..

  55. oh Tina, its look as if its a bad period for arhi fanfiction writers and readers. some leeches are copying awesome writers work and because of this the writers suffers and which also result in the reader bearing the burden of the crime.
    i am so srrry for the trouble it must have caused you.
    obviously we value your decision its already very nice of you to let it effect you, continue writing and keeping the blog open wht else can we ask for more.
    i was just stalking the blog for update of secret passion that i came across this note

  56. Hi Tina. Silent reader here (commenting 2nd time on this blog), just to let you know that you are supported and appreciated. Sometimes, I'll stumble upon a great FF story, I'll get into it, just to find about half way through that the author has removed the story due to plagiarism issues. Although I understand why, as a reader, it's frustrating. So I really really applaud you for trying so hard to cater to your readers, in-spite of obstacles. Unfortunately, it takes all types to make the world, we can only just chin up and continue doing what it is that makes us us. Thanks so much Tina. If the comments on this post are any indication, you have a heck of alot of people behind you!

  58. It is a shame when people do despicable things like copying - I can understand stealing an idea or something - but copying word for word? That is just wrong!! Mind games is one of my favorite stories - very different from the mainstream stories about arshi.
    I sincerely love your work and feel it is good enough to pay for!! Even though I have read all of Shameless I still intend on purchasing the ebook when it comes out! Would love to read it again.

  59. I am absolutely disgusted to the core Tina. It has even happened before. But I am very proud of you Tina . This hasn't deterred you from writing for us . My respect for you has grown in leaps and bounds . Remember, no matter what happens, we sincere fans of yours are with you.
    PS Could you please give me a link where the stories were copied. Would like to put my bashing skills in use.

    U\Your fans would always be there for your support.

  61. UGG MY FAVORITE STORY!!!!!! Mind Games was one story which I LOVED LOVE AND WILL ALWAYS LOVE VERY MUCH NO MATTER WHAT! it comes in the top list of all my favorite fan FICs actually it's number one on that list..nd now m hurt! But I truly admire you..you settled this in such a mature manner, unlike many who would have taken abrupt decisions and all..that's truly amazing, just proves that you are not only an amazing writer but Also an amazing person..a very mature one..

    I swear if it was me I would have reacted violently like WHERE ARE MY SWORDS..lol..this is no time to joke I know but I hope I lightened up your mood a little..cz I'm sure like many i know that mind games was very close to you after Shameless..so I truly hope the idiot who even thought of plagiarizing faces some sort of penalty!! I'm being mean, but that story truly was the one story I always read when I was upset, or was going through a low mood, I even read it after recieving a bad grade on my test though ppl would go study or get depressed after low scores on a test that was suppose to be a final test of the semester I just read Mind Games cz it took my mind off of the real world..

    I even acted stupid once thinking imagine if someone knows WHT I'm thinking in my mind right now lol..I was hoping for an Arnav lol..I swear I'm so upset over this news..hopefully I'll see the WHOLE story once again so I can read it like I always did..and you know what's weird I feel like reading It now cz I'm upset..ugh.. The person who copied it has me now in a total off mood..

    But gladly you handled the situation well..so THANK you for that! Truly.. Thank god like many other authors you didnt take the entire story off..but I'm really sorry to hear this..you deserve a lot AND I MEAN A LOT of credit for all your stories, and mind games is one of them!!

    I swear If i ever find that person on I-F, IM GONNA GO ALL ASR ON THEM DAMMIT! Well a female version..though definitely not Anjali version..but A female Arnav Singh Raizada version!!

  70. Hey! I am so sorry this happened! Ugh just hate it when it does! You are such a great writer. I am glad you are still giving people a chance to read your work! It's just sad because I loved to go back and re-read..especially DH. But it's totally understandable. I hope to one day be able to read DH start to finish again! Glad you are finishing it! :) thank you for the wonderful stories!

  71. You are such a gifted wtiter, I know nothing about writing but I am sure it takes a lot of hardwork. And then if someone steals your work I am sute it hurts a lot. I have read all ur stories and I always wait for ur updates eagerly. The thing u have done is I guess the best option to deal with these people right now. Thanks for thinking about ur old readers.

  81. hi there tina,
    i am mrudula, and i am a silent reader of yours... sorry that i am one... but this topic u have posted here is of very much importance..i am so very angry at this moment to those people who did that...the issue of plagiarism is at its peak i think... why the hell are they bent upon posting the hard work of the writers ???? i am damn sure that they cant write a thing of their own... this makes the writers in such a tight position that they are apprehensive of posting the work... the same thing happened with anne with her story neertherose some idiot posted it in a site.. and we new readers were caught up and we cant access the story.... we cant blame them also who will they believe if the story was definitely posted by some of their dedicated readers ? but in that case i was the one who told her about the posting.....
    but pls remember this whatever step u take i will definitely support u ..co its not anybody's right to steal any of theses amazing work & post it in their work... but i still appreciate that u r still posting it.. hats off for that .. really love you yaaar for considering all ur readers... i admire u actually... thanks for considering us silent readers too.. not so many people are that accommodating thanks a million for that ....

  83. I have been a silent reader for the most part, I have only posted a comment once but now to read that some unscrupulous individual had the audacity to copy your work is utterly disgusting and despairing. Mind Games was your first story that I read and for me that remains very special but apart from Shameless I have read and re-read all your other stories and am particularly fond of DH and SP. Your stories are amazing and your are such a talented writer and as a reader I am so grateful that you share your stories with strangers like myself around the world, the common thread binding us all - the love of Arnav and Khushi. You should be afforded the respect and appreciation by others as well. I strongly support whatever necessary security measures you take to safeguard your stories, and am very touched that you have continued to post more updates. I eagerly look forward to reading the updates which I constantly check for. Your stories provide a welcome change in the humdrum of our daily routine.... I sincerely hope that the plagiarism stops now! Best wishes alwayz to you....

  86. I am a die hard fan of your stories. I have read your FFs so many times. And Mind Games is my most favorite story. I have read it 7 – 8 times from start to finish till now. Usually my weekend starts when I read at least one chapter of any of your stories.

    As usual this week also I wanted to start reading Mind Games again and noticed that you have removed first 4 chapters. Then I read your note and understood the reason. I don’t know why some sick people want to take credit for other’s hard work. You have invested so much time and efforts in writing these wonderful stories. You have every reason to get angry when it is copied somewhere else without your permission. I wish there is some way to protect these stories. Please do not remove any more parts. I am so sorry you have to go through all these. But please continue to write the FFs.

I hate people who just wants to take advantage of others hard work.
