    So.....

    Well, it's been quite a while since I've spoken on here and... I really am sorry for that. Over this past year, I've been trying to push forward in my life, throwing a lot of time into my work to try and afford a home of my own (which I almost had, but at the last moment, the numbers just fell through so I had to let it go). I haven't really kept up on my writing at all outside of some friendly

    Moving Forward...

    So... it's been a while since I've actually done anything on this site other than piss off mods and read stories (occasionally). And, I'm really getting tired of that. I really plan on making myself better now that I am getting financially stable and having a bright future with a new job. I took quite a hit when several of my stories were pulled/cancelled due site mods cracking down on musical

    Stories gone.

    As some of you may or may not have noticed, several of my stories have recently disappeared from the site. Well, I want you all to know that this was not my doing, but was done by a staff member of FimFiction. The reasoning behind this was that they're cracking down on the use of song lyrics in stories and I certainly don't have the time to go back to remove the songs that helped my stories

    Baby steps

    Hey guys, I just wanted to let you all know what was going on recently as my writing instantly fell off when my Halloween story fell through. Well, to be honest I've been fighting a steep loss in motivation to write out these stories, despite many different ideas coming into my mind. Thankfully, though, now that I've made a new employment change, some inspiration has been coming back to me so

    Decision

    So, I made my decision: I'm pulling PARANORMAL down for now and we'll refocus on another story for the month of Halloween. I'll try again next Halloween with it to see if I can pull more of a following. So, for the rest of the month, I will shift my focus to another story that fits the theme of Halloween: The Ultimate Enemy. Prepare yourself for the some ghostly action in the coming days and

Stories gone. · 2:35am May 9th, 2017

As some of you may or may not have noticed, several of my stories have recently disappeared from the site. Well, I want you all to know that this was not my doing, but was done by a staff member of FimFiction. The reasoning behind this was that they're cracking down on the use of song lyrics in stories and I certainly don't have the time to go back to remove the songs that helped my stories shine.

And yes, I have been aware of this rule from the start of making stories, I will admit to that. However, I personally believe that rule of not being able to use songs that aren't MLP related to be complete bull. MLP songs are just as copyrighted as any other song, so how is it they can get a pass but not others? If it weren't for that fact, I would believe that they were simply trying to avoid lawsuits. So, for the time being I will be removing several of my stories until further notice and will inform you all once I have set them up in a better place to be viewed without scrutiny. From there, I will decide if FimFiction is worth making content for anymore.

See ya later.

Sooo, they're gone forever than? Until you go back and change the stories at least?

Once the author removes the copyrighted lyrics, the stories are perfectly welcome back on the site :twilightsmile:

4525626 Yes, they are gone for good.

4525702 With how ingrained music is into my stories, it's my only choice. I'm not going back to change my vision just because the staff are afraid of copyright laws. That's their problem and i won't let it become mine.

While I'm not the biggest fan of your stuff, I agree that this is sad. Having that much hard work removed because it dares have the same words as some piece of music? That seems kind of unfair, I understand the point. And that they have to protect the site, but still. Sorry to hear about this, man.

This is SO unfair! And I was really looking forward to the finale of the Chaotic Harmony Trilogy. I'm super sorry. But to be honest, no offense, you could've at least given the song writers credit.

Oh, shit, I'll need to double check mine then.

So the stories are never, I mean in a LIFETIME NEVER, coming back?

4556823 At this point, yes. I may try another site in the future, but for now I think it best to move on and use this learning experience to better my future products.

4556940 Ok. I'm so sorry. If you need help with anything on Fimfiction, let me know. BTW, your stories of DJ were the first ones I read on this website.

4556940 There is a website like this one. Have you heard of Quotev?

What about Deviantart? I know of a few authors that have stories posted on there.

You could always put up a petition for the people of fimfiction to let people put songs up on their stories as long as they put an authors note at the beginning of the chapter on about how they don't own the original song and stuff.

4556940

I may try another site in the future

what about www.fanfiction.net?

For your three stories that were removed "I Left My World for Ponies!?, My New Life with Ponies!? and Living My Life with Ponies!?" can't you now go and put them back up on this site or Fanfiction.net, just remove the music video's from the chapters that have them.

4525707
Thought of putting in on something like a tumblr page or something?

just saying if you go here https://web.archive.org/web/20170210000027/http://www.fimfiction.net:80/story/160259/i-left-my-world-for-ponies you can download the books or evan read them as if they were not removed
