Foxy Lady(Shit I Plagiarized From Jimi Hendrix Now)



"The events and characters described in this story are as real as The J-Lo butt(TM). Infact this is an autobiographical account of a near death experience. Bear with me I've got evidence. This is the inside spoof as opposed to the public comments reiterated elsewhere"
..........................................................................................................................................................................

I read her story. It was called the end(TM)(yes you better write TM whenever you write the name of her story, or she will create another fuss). It was missing something. It didnt have the zing(even the name was depressing). I thought I could do better than that. So I rewrote it. I called it The Beginning(I wanted to give it an upbeat ending). I posted it on my blog. I sent her a link to view it. I thought she would take it as a compliment that I, I of all people decided to rewrite her story. But i didnt take into consideration my previous acrimonious encounters with her. I didnt know that she would be holding a grudge against me. Yes i knew her from orkut.com. We were both in a few communties in which I was forced to insult her publicly( due to the nature of the communities).

And hence the dirty dancing began. She came and accused me of "lifting off" her story. I had taken only a few basic concepts and woven my own imagination around them. The definition of originality in my view is that if it took your sweat its yours. I did work on it and actually changed the emotional tone. Her's was sad. Mine was angry and aggressive. She doomed the poor boy without any will power to take big decisions. I pitied his fate. I gave him the cheek to kill her aunt and run away to safety.

But she wanted controversy. She was actually getting a finite number of readers after this fuss started. So she pasted her link on my blog claiming her story was the original. I let the comment remain even when It implied that my story was a copy of hers(she calls herself meow-The *Cat).

Then I posted a comment stating that hers is a very similar version. Now I didnt say anything offensive here but, she could still be original but she started acting all hurt over this.



Then I got a mail from her. Her first mail. She was Oh so diffident, Oh so demure.She said She was hurt about some reportedly sarcastic comment which I had apparently passed(Damned if I know). She very sweetly asked me to delete my comment saying hers was similar to me. And in a fit of compassion I agreed(Yes I fell for it, Punch my nose, yeah..once again). And she conveniently forgot to delete her comment disparaging my work. And yeah she acknowledged, in private of course that I did not steal( And stupid me, I was content with that).

So act 1 ended thus. I had moved on. I wrote another story in which "some" would say I had plagiarized from history books. But yes I did move on. Then a fan of hers comments on "The beginning". That comment is visible on its comment list. I still have not deleted it.(I cant provide a link coz I dont know how to). So I sent her a mail saying that her fans are giving me trouble after the fact of our agreeing on the fact that I did not steal.

To be very honest(which I generally am) I expected a civilized response. What happened was she didnt reply at all(unlike when she had an axe to grind). My visitors didnt like the outrage and railed against "The Fan", which ruffled the cat's fur and she decided to write a post totally devoted to me.














Now this the act three and I'm going to provide evidence of her double talk






Gallerie De La Prima Donna.







She looks innocent doesnt she? But looks are deceptive.

I've deleted most of the mails but I have enough to uncover her.(click on the screen shots to view them in full size). This is how the dialogue goes

This comment too! It is the main culprit you see.. Please do not misunderstand my mailing you, I just did not want to make a worse mess of things at the story "The Beginning".
A *SIMILAR* version @shmoo for a more original version we should all read Harry Potter or better still Ciderella dont you think?....

.........................................................................................................................................................................

This was when the fit of compassion disabled my critical thinking.

Since the link has already been mentioned in the comments, providing one in the post won't be necessary at all. You may also delete my first comment, since this entire matter is resolved now. One more thing, I'm not an evil person who wants to go around accusing people, I was just hurt over, what seems to be a very unfortunate misunderstanding over the link not being included. Hope we can put this behind us ^_^ Oh yes, n please delete the 5th comment.

..........................................................................................................................................................................

The entire matter is supposed to be resolved now. I could only hope. Not an evil person? Somebody pinch me.

No, you did not steal :)

..........................................................................................................................................................................
















Her own words..you did not steal..and a smiley too...if somebody gives you a smiley, be sure he\she wants to stuff a chilly powder filled bag peppered with glass shards down your throat.

Act 1 ends
Now after that comments of her fans I typed off an angry mail to her that was not exactly emmoliating. This is the aftermath.

What do you mean by 'this Nothingman of yours'? I did not ask him to comment at my blog or yours. Piyush, you need to realize one important thing, people will not always be as forgiving as I was in this situation. When people read both our stories, they will think I am a fool to let go of the issue so easily. I don't mind putting up both stories for the people to decide.. infact it is already happening. Both links were available, N read them and posted a comment. I cannot stop the world from reacting to your post. Your blog and your actions are not my responsibility. Similarly, comments left by other bloggers aren't my responsibility either. If you are so confident of yourself, why don't you sort it out with N?One more thing, get rid of the misconception that you backed off. The issue was discussed and and we came to a mutual agreement. You did not do me a favour.

..........................................................................................................................................................................

of course not her responsibility after all they are not her babies. Discussed? I never thought about my own interests, I just gave in to her antics. Here's my explaination to that.

I came to an agreement on the provision that you the so calledoriginal writer agreed to the fact that i did not copy or steal...itook the concept and did what my imagination told me...there have been22 movies on the concept of Godzilla, nobody calls them copies. And u need to get rid of the misconception that you"let goof it so easily"you pestered me ,and sweettalked me into deleting those comments.Mywork is original but the concept is the same as yours,mine is not acopy.I didnt even force you to aknowledge it.You got away scot freeafter calling my work into question.You came to know abt my post onlywhen I provided you with the link of my post otherwise you wdnt evenhave known abt it.And you didnt even delete ur first comment.
My honesty costs me this..people are telling me to be a man....Finei'll be a man.And there will be no concessions from my side from nowon.

..........................................................................................................................................................................

yeah I know you can see me seething but thats how I felt. And people talk about hurt.

So this is my side of the story. In the comment section u'll find the links to all the things you need to know about this unnecessary fuss. This is the last time I'm talking about it and I leave the whole thing for the readers to decide.
