FanFiction.Net Freedom of Script
Authors and Reviewers of FanFiction.Net/FOSFF.Net
More Info at:
There has recently been a strongly enforced script writing ban--one that, although declared in days past, was not enforced strongly enough--that has forced many authors to lose their precious stories and, in some cases, their own accounts. Many authors have been driven away from FF.Net because of this, and one group has even made a site that would allow these outlawed fics, www.FOSFF.net. However, one must not forget their home, their roots, and so this petition has been born.
The purpose of this petition is an attempt to salvage any hope of returning to FF.Net. The purpose of this petition is to get script fics to be allowed back onto FF.Net's servers.
One may argue, yes, the script form ban was there before, and many authors should have seen it before, but think of this; you can lead a horse to water, but you simply cannot make it drink. This "law" was weakly enforced, and so it was given no mind. If you want to be heard, you need to speak up. This is certainly no exception.
One may also argue that not all script form stories are great and most are, at most, bland and feelingless, but not all. Generalizing all of the script form stories as nothing but chat text is wrong. There are many a story that have packed the same kind of punch as any novel form story. Closing your eyes to one form of writing is locking your mind to endless possibility.
In conclusion, this petition stands for the freedom of writing whatever you please, however you please. This petition stands for the right to a voice. If you sign this petition, you are helping to free a seemingly trapped site from its chains of one-size-fits-all rule. Signing this petition will bring us all one step closer to returning to FF.Net, a site which, though many authors may despise as of now, cannot be denied as our starting point in writing.
It's time to make a stand. Will you answer the call?
