Plagiarism
Today I was going through one of my social medias (I'm not stating which) and I found an edit that I did... I got a bit mad, but then I realized that maybe they gave me credit, so I clicked it. When I clicked it, I realized that characters were changed, but the plot and wording was still the same. I got angrier and somehow I read through it all. My suspicions were correct, they plagiarized my work. This isn't the first time something like this has happened, and I know it's not going to be the last time. However, I want to adress this before it happens any time soon-

I WILL NOT PUT UP WITH IT.

I can keep my cool for a long time, but whoever you are, I suggest you take it off before I find you, and how about get your own inspiration? I appreciate you reading my work and looking at my edits, but if you're going to do something like this, block me. I don't want someone like you on my friends list. Or how about give me credit? Something that literally only takes 5 minutes at the most, and you couldn't do that? If you won't do any, message me and tell me who you are, so I can block you instead. Something that takes me two fucking days may not be much for you person, but in those two days I could've practiced my music, I could've been doing things that needed to be done around my home, I could've been doing so many things. But no, I decided to work on this specific thing and for you person to take all my credit?

I WORKED HARD FOR IT. DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO PUT EMOTIONS INTO WORDS OR IDEAS INTO ACTION? HOW ABOUT INDESCRIBABLE FEELINGS INTO EXPLANATIONS?

Like I said, it may not mean a lot to you as you just copy and paste MY WORDS but You make it seem like it's nothing. Like my emotions and ideas don't matter at all. Like anything that was said were just meaningful words without actual meaning.
Whether it's a story, a form (applications), edits, Ideas, etc. I will not put up with it even if it's something very simple. If you're inspired by my work, it makes me happy and all. It just pisses me off if you copy and paste and just change names and wording around. Don't do that to anyone. I'm sorry for being extremely rude with my words but this just pisses me off. Most of this rant, was referred to those people that plagiarize. Oh one more thing. I know who you are. I just want to see if you're woman/man enough to claim your 'trophy.'
Rant credit to @MichelleIbarra Oh look! It was that easy.

You have the right to feel this way. I know I would be mad too. Whenever I see someone posting things and they have a hint of plagiarism, I make sure they have credit. If they don't, I know that that person is not someone to interact with as horrible as it sounds. Like you said, giving credit is so easy. Even just saying "credit goes to owner" is super simple! I hope this stops soon! 💕
