Someone printed an anthology of Steve/Tony comics fic (including Paradise Found by No Silence Here, Trouble in Paradise by No Silence Here, This time tomorrow (where were we) by dorcas_gustine, Full Body Workout by Nix (Crimson Quills), Conjugate by Valtyr, Without Irony (WIPE 1 of 2) by tsukinofaerii, Per Expectations (WIPE 2 of 2) by tsukinofaerii, A Meeting of Minds by Nix (Crimson Quills), and Indelible by Penumbren. Excellent fics, from what I've read, and you should look them up, though that's not the Valtyr fic I would have chosen.) She promised to give away five copies, and make more availible on a print on demand site, sold at cost..

People were excited.

The authors found out. The majority of them had not given permission, nor even been contacted. Frowny faces were made. Also the print on demand site had in it's ToS that you had to be the copyright holder, and you could not include porn. Also she'd used NaNoWriMo tickets to get the free copies, which isn't fair to NaNo.

People were angry.

I changed my permission statement.

The OP apologised very prettily and took everything down.

Many people forgave her.

Yet the storm on tumblr continues. Either FOREVER or until next Tuesday. Whichever comes first.

Honestly, she's seventeen and clearly didn't know better. I feel bad for her. Also, a 'Zine of Steve/Tony fic would be pretty cool, if done in accordance with the Ways of Our People.

Urgh

This whole incident is making me feel old, tired and extremely cranky. Hopefully the OP learned her lesson. Also hopefully fandom will let this thing sink into obscurity and she won't be That Person forever.

Wow. I managed to completely miss that wank. Apparently I'm out of touch with fandom these days.

Well! That workout story! Have just read it and I...can understand why it was picked for an anthology. *whistles innocently*

Oh yes, her! The one fanfic that made me actually care about and/or get that pairing. Aha.

I don't do NaNo, so I don't know what this means. She got tickets that were supposed to be used for printing her NaNo novel but she printed this zine instead?

Ow. The sad thing is, I would cheerfully buy an anthology of good comics fic printed at cost. But I can't even imagine not asking any of the writers for permission first, and I'd feel really weird if someone had published zines of my fic without saying anything at all to me about it (whereas, if someone said, "Hey, I want to print a zine of 616 fic, can I include fic X," I'd totally say yes, and I bet a lot of other writers would as well).

*facepalm* And I just checked tsukinofaerii's tumblr and discovered that the no-permission anthology was totally going to have Salt Aliens fic/When the Lights Go On Again in it except it was too long. (Which is, ironically, the only fic I actually might have said no about - it's only posted on LJ where it can theoretically be locked to cap_ironman members only if necessary and not on ff.net because we might want to use the aliens in original fic someday).

I actually never posted it to AO3 because I'm lazy - it could be locked to archive users only there if necessary, like several of the Hocky RPS writers do. Whereas on ff.net, I'd have to delete it, and then I'd go to the fannish special hell right alongside people who say they'll only post the next chapter if they get X many reviews and people who ask actors at conventions how they feel about slash.
