A couple of reviewers over at ff.net have informed me that I've been plagiarized. My Dean/Cas big bang from 2011, Bring It On Home, has been reposted there as The End of Our World. With an added note about how hard it was to write. I left a review asking it be taken down and reported it. Anything else I should do? This has never happened to me before.

When this happened to me I directly contacted the writer who stole my work and calmly informed her that I was aware of what had happend and that I expected all relevant stories to be deleted from EVERYWHERE and that I was sure it would never happen again WOULD IT.

I was surprised when I got a quite contrite email back in return.

Good luck.

There used to be an LJ community devoted to announcing and policing fanfic plagiarism, but I do not remember the details.

Ugh, I'm sorry. :/ Depending on how much effort you want to put into this, I'd consider messaging anyone who commented praising the story. Say thank you and you're glad they enjoyed it, then include a link to the original and your other work. (I'd certainly want to know if a story I loved was stolen from someone else.)

ETA: Both of your links go to your DW post, but if this is the right link, then two of their other stories appear to be plagiarized as well. The Most Cliché Story of All Romances is endversed's We're the Cliché, and The Story of Us is Raeldaza's We're the Movie.

You might want to report it to [livejournal.com profile] stop_plagiarism as well. Take screencaps; their profile page offers clear instructions on how to proceed.

Since plagiarists are in it for the apparently reflected glory (?!), public fannish shaming is often the only resource.

Good luck.
