Well, kiddies my little fic "Power and Control" has developed quite a network of haters out there.  Fine, whatever.  I never expected everyone who read the story to like it.  What I do take issue with is these haters assuming that I'm getting some sort of cheap thrill out of writing this story by abusing the characters and stating that I'm treating rape and abuse as some kind of joke. 

I've said it before, this is a brutal look at sexual abuse.  I do not pull any punches with this story because there are far too many rape stories out there that gloss it over and trivialize it.  It is raw and it is real.  This is no laughing matter and I DO NOT take the subject lightly.  Rape is not about sex.  The Zaizen in my story isn't getting off on the sex, he's getting off on forcing the others into horrible situations.  He likes that control.

And to those who complain about OOC obviously missed the "semi-AU" in the disclaimer.  Amon would never allow such things to happen.  In canon, yeah, but this isn't a canon piece.  Normal rules do not apply.  I borrowed heavily from the series, but changed things to make them work within my guidelines.  This is more of a "what if?" story.  What if these things happened to these characters?  I believe that my characters behave realistically in this situation.  Disagree?  Well, you could always contact me and we could discuss like adults OR you can continue to hide in your fan communities.  The floor is open for debate.

Haters? That's awful. Why? Don't they know how to read your warnings and notes? To me, if it's in the warning and notes, the readers have no right to complain about it. (Though I have had it happen to me as well)

The scenes you write involving sexual abuse and rape are obviously not meant to 'stimulate' the reader. Unless, of course, they are sickos. There is nothing remotely erotic about those brutal encounters. They are about control, which is what you intended and what comes through quite clearly.

As for writing such scenes? Anyone who would imply the writer may get some kind of cheap thrill out of this is themselves sick. You and I have both written very difficult scenes, and I suspect you found them emotionally draining and at times extremely depressing?

If you want to talk more about this, my email address is on my user info page. For what it's worth, you have my total support.

Thank you, sweetie. Your support means a great deal to me. I care a trillion times more about the opinions of talented autors such as yourself then I do about the immature ramblings of hateful people.

"jerk" stamp on their foreheads...
havent emailed you in a while. meh, i blame life. or me for once. yeah, i am such a jerk. :(

anyways, what makes you say those jackasses are finally shoing their faces? did they give you a review on your AFF version?! god, those fools...

ive had a look at the forum i gave you. hasnt shown any form of activity since december. maybe its the same people, just not so daring, or there's another group out there.

i couldnt take a look at you AFF version since the comp here has quite a few blocks. im guessing they left something there to fuel the rant i just read. damn, i so wished to repay them for what theyve done to me, and to you.

heh, i have friends. ones who can make devastating viruses. yes... the male way of doing things always ends with some form of violence, but they fired the first shot. why not shoot back and totally make thousand-dollar computer terminals worthless shells of metal?

meh, i share rage with anybody whose gone through the same crap-people with their same shit-mouths.
nothing good to say cept that theyre good at being bullys.

i wonder... is it possible for the "bullied" to become the "bully"?

Re: "jerk" stamp on their foreheads...
Hey Ben,

Don't worry about not dropping a line in a while, you have school to think about.

The AFF version is the same one you read here, no difference. No, the brats on that forum didn't leave any comments on the story. In fact, no one has :( I came across a different thread then the one you posted the link to. I won't post the correct on to the thread because no one needs to see their stupidity and I've moved past my anger about it.

I appreciate you feelings on the matter, but I won't stoop to their level. Tell your friend to hold off on the virus. I plan to hurt them by not giving up and continuing to write this story.

heh... boom!
might as wells put up a link to that forum up for those who are curious. might inspire others to utterly destroy these jerks...


warning before you go there: its like wading through sewege. the kind thats bubbling and rotten, with things that float up that you do not want to know. i dont recommend even going in there, but if it satisfies one's curiousity, or makes one end these people's reign over fanfiction (and there's a lot of them), go right ahead. ill be here to join you, if you want. whatever is done, im right behind you people.

personally, i think the only reason these people at "Harry's" or whatever the forum is called, only get to voice out there hate because they have numbers. w/o others behind them, theyre no warriors, just meek dogs with tails between their legs. seperate them, and maybe this torment will stop.

if anybody wants, i can probably compile a list of people (and their aliases) that are known to be involved in flaming authors work. heh... this site is pretty much a confession to sins. maybe someone can show this site as proof or something to some admin.

Re: heh... boom!
Like I said above, this isn't the thread that I found, but you can see the dispicible nature of these children. I wouldn't advise anyone to look, but I can't stop you.

And believe me, if these people get the one chapter I reposted on FF.net pulled, you can bet that I will make the site admins aware of this thread. Me and my story are being unjustly attacked by this group. So, we'll see what happens.

i have proof of their transgressions
bah... im a revenge filled person. i didnt get anyone to send viruses, but others found a bit of sensibility in flaming them back. and hey, they deserved it...

and i now have proof that it couldve been one of them who reported:


somewhere along that thread there, one of them mentions that they are going to report their story.

that only fuels my rage.

me and my friends on the academy are just gonna blow them up, eh?

well, what can you expect? these people have caused hell. we cause it back. what can you expect from a bunch of 16-18 year olds who have nothing better to do than cast imaginary spells that cause pain and agony?

personally, i suggest you report those assholes. at least talk to them or something.

Re: i have proof of their transgressions
Unless they actually try and get the story shut down, I'm just going to go on with my life. These idiots are not worth my time. Though I do find one major flaw in all of their arguments. They keep insisting that Zaizen wouldn't act like this or Amon wouldn't do that because of blah, blah, blah in the series. Well, my story doesn't take place during the "regular" series. This is a point I've stated multiple times during the story. MY Zaizen is someone who would do these things and MY Zaizen is different in that respect than the one on the show. Deal with it people! You can't aruge canon facts in a non-canon story. This is an important piece of information they keep overlooking. So, it just proves that they are A- not capable of reading the warinings and such on a story. B- obviously not mature enough to handle the subject matter. C- Sad, sorry people who get off on trashing others so they can feel better about themselves.

There is no reasoning with them. I appreciate your anger, but its really not worth it.

Re: i have proof of their transgressions
You should understand that everyone is a critic and by posting a story where anyone can review it, that not everyone will leave a positive review.

As long as they don't attack you personally, it shouldn't bother you if they attack your subject matter.

Re: i have proof of their transgressions
Hello there,

Thank you for leaving a comment. That's all nice and good if everyone understands the unwritten rules, but there will always be people out there who will take it upon themselves to attack the writer personally. As I said above, I never expected everyone to like the story or it's subject matter, but since there was a discussion about me as the writer of the story, I did take issue with that.
