    A Music Blog (#23: Dem eyebrows)

    The Jam Project cover is pretty sweet. No pun intended.

    A Music Blog (#22: But where are we going?)

    I quite enjoy how they frolic in the snow... Yes...

    The song is pretty zazzy, for lack of a better word.

    A Music Blog (#21: It knows too much)

    I kind of like how unpredictable this song is. Yet it still has a good melody. Nice find.

    Also, ignore how far behind I am on your blog. I'm subscribed, but it never tells me when you update it oddly. =P

    Anyways, both great songs there! The hairstyle back then, haha.
    Same area of the leg at any rate, I suppose!

    I bet their hairstyles were also musically gifted.

    But there's a double meaning (or triple?). Achilles in the tale is undone by being stabbed in the leg/heel, perhaps in what is currently called the Achilles tendon (which on that note is a horrible thing to break). Robert Plant, the singer, had prior to the song broken his ankle - the song was apparently thought to be initially called The Wheelchair song. I think I prefer this title better.

    I should just make a tl;dr post in FF&W and say "yo this is how just a brother ends"

    But yeah, good to see you've taken the first stride into getting this resolved. Like I said, if it were me...I'd be pissed.

    We must go back in time and find 15-yr-old Sydian! No that plane sounds creepy actually out of context. =p But yes, I would like to hear that. =)

    Wow that's seriously disappointing. If that was me I'd be fuming! You seem to be keeping yourself rather calm which I admire! Personally, I'd report them if possible - whether on the competitons Facebook page etc. And wow, that kid's school is not that far from where I live haha. I'm so tempted to report it to the FB page - but I won't because that's your decision and it's not my place.
    I am quite annoyed about it too mind you - as said though it's a bit diminished when this isn't the first time it has happened with my fic. =/ (More like 4th or 5th to some degree).

    I used the contact page on the website but I may have to wait a while for the person in charge to deal with it according to a generic return email from them I received.

    I would be ****ing pissed. My fic that I started upon joining got plagiarized once. They tried to make it a bit more different than this kid did, but yeah...didn't fool me. And it's odd since my fic wasn't nearly as good as yours haha.
    Whereabouts did that happen? And your fic was fun to read and I was disappointed it didn't get finished. =(

    I did say it had a bloated view count. =p And no, they did not. I just made use of the site's contact form.

    Haha, last year's winner of the short story competition has several grammar mistakes in the first sentence. :V Hilarious. And it's all about a shopping cart.

    What do they win anyhow that would make someone steal another person's work?
    Imitation is the greatest sort of flattery!... whoever said that was silly. :V

    I don't think they did win anything (at least) as the site has a million stories in it so they probably just put all entries there for their couple-every-year comps. But who knows. Didn't go through all the winners lists anyhow.

    I guess they have stuff like money and gadgets (e.g. xboxs, kindles going off the site) and also they sell published books of entries deemed good enough to be a winner. I guess this would be a way to have a fic officially published then? =p
