FanFiction.Net Freedom of Script sign now

Many online fan fiction writers have turned to www.fanfiction.net to publish their stories and get feedback so to better themselves. This site has been seen for years as a great creative outlet where one could hear and be heard. However, many authors, including myself, have seen better days.

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?

    Author? No Reviewer? No *Sigh* I used to love that site, along with some stories there too. "Unleash your imagination and free your soul"...what a load that is. How can a person unleash their imagination if someone else is saying that you can only write

    Author? No Reviewer? No *sigh* It's such a shame. What was once an oasis of freedom and greatness is now a wasteland of horny gay people (literally). If they provide a true, valid reason for this, I might accept it, but for now, it's a total shame. Some

    Author? No Reviewer? No I used to have tons of feedback (not all good, but still a lot), and then all my scripts and reviews got taken down. fanfiction.net would get so many more stories if they allowed scripted format. Bring back scripted format!
  • 22 May 201542. Brian C
    Author? No Reviewer? No They didn't give us a reason why scripted fics were not allowed. So, therefor, I feel they should allow it.
  • 06 May 201541. Untermenschen Cantrell
    Author? No Reviewer? No I might be out of it at the moment, but that doesn't mean that I'm not one-hundred percent behind this petition. It's ironic how FF.Net's slogan is "Unleash your imagination and free your soul" when the said imagination and soul a

    Author? No Reviewer? No We need to make ff.net open their eyes and see the tragic error they have caused by doing this. If this doesn't do the trick, then I don't know what will. I'm behind this petition 110%!
  • 01 January 201538. Robert D
    Author? No Reviewer? No I've given up on ff.net and I'm not going back to it, but perhaps a new generation of script authors will have better luck if this succeeds. So more power to them.

    Author? No Reviewer? No Until this petition succeeds, ff.net can NEVER be forgiven for their hypocrisy (i.e. "Unleash your imagination and free your soul!" my ass). Liberty Shall be ours!

    Author? No Reviewer? No I endorse this petition 100%. The ban has not yet been explained and has served only to marginalize, split, or destroy certain fandoms. Although script form may not be popular or the best for certain fandoms, in others it's the no

  • 05 June 201429. Call Meblues
    Author? No Reviewer? No It's bad enough that the script format was banned, they had some good stories in 'em. But what's worse is that slash has majorly increased in certain communities (ie South Park) and making people like me have to wade through piles

    Author? No Reviewer? No My Fellow Americans. FanFiction.net can't take away our rights. We must force them to be shut down and take away their internet privilages.
