You know how something happens and you just can't look away? Yeah, doing that now.

Once upon a time, there was a slash writer named [livejournal.com profile] thamiris. I didn't know her, but I'd read stuff she wrote. She was one of those people you just encountered if you were in slash so many knew of her. She died of breast cancer in '07 and lots of people were sad.

Fast Forward

There's this guy called [livejournal.com profile] boyan_fraser who has apparently decided that no one will notice he's plagiarized the words of a dead woman. Not only has he been copying her fiction, but he's been copying her entire journal! That's right, from daily life posts to fandom commentary, hell, even down to his replies to other people! He's taken them all from [livejournal.com profile] thamiris' mouth! WTF person?! WTF!!

I'm watching the situation roll downhill with the momentum of a speeding train here and watching the angry comments added by the moment over here. with sick morbid fascination. What kind of sick attention seeking fuck do you have to be to lift that much material from a woman who isn't even around to defend herself anymore?

Update
The LJ team is claiming that they can't do anything about the situation unless a family member comes forward, but Thamaris was very careful to keep fandom and real life separate and that simply isn't possible without disrespecting her wishes.

The thief, after being flamed to hell and back, has started to lock and/or delete his posts.

He has also gone on to claim that he knew Thamaris (whom he calls by her real name, just going to show that he couldn't have possibly been her friend given her strong separation of her two lives) and that this was a plan the two of them cooked up, but he cannot spill the details because it would be against her wishes. He is now blaming all of the people that are flaming him for misunderstanding the situation. Uh huh...way to dig the hole deeper you jackass.

So is anyone else having thoughts of what to do with their journal when they die? O_o

Update Jr.
The asshole has made a public...well, I can't call it an apology really. It's more like a cry of martyrdom than anything else.

Dear F-List,

This post is wanky. This post is a rant directed at a person who is a liar and a thief. Please feel free to skip this post and any wank it might generate. Should you have a taste for wank, please grab a bag of popcorn while I outline the situation for you.

I haven't talked about my RPing in this journal a lot. I'll tell you about it now, enough to explain this situation. Daeva and Drake initially came up with the character of David. He would be Archer's son with a female Kimblee. From David, the universe began. Roy became Reine, Jean Havoc became female and Hawkeye became a male and they had kids. Alex, Paige and Ryan were their names. Dae and I began to RP David and Ryan. Our wacky high-jinks inspired others. Phishy and Yuriko did some genderswapping and came up with Clara and Damien and various others. Worlds collided and it was random insanity and it was fun. Complicated, but fun.

Into this mix stepped Broken_Envy and Invidia1988. They had also been inspired and created a genderswapped universe. There were kids there as well. Lots of them. It got a little weird. They wanted to invade our universe, but Dae warded them off. It was ok, just weird. Then it got weirder. Suddenly their characters were popping up with our characters' names. Their characters were using the image songs that the others had carefully picked out. Hell, their characters resemble the art that Daeva and Phishy drew! Basically, something a little more than inspiration was going on.

But you couldn't bring this up. Oh no, you couldn't mention this. You see, Broken's been working on a novel for ten years and those characters are hers! She has rock solid proof of this!! Or so she claims. And when more characters pop up with more of our characters' names? Her sister made them. And when yet more characters pop up? Well we need to STFU up because we're big stupid bitches and you can't copyright a name. That may be so, but we're tired of these childish shenanigans. We're just a little too old for this kind of bullshit, and here is where I finally put my foot down. Cue an open letter to [livejournal.com profile] broken_envy.
