Harsh!

If people do 'get inspired' by one's works, it is a great compliment, though.

I was wondering about that Seibertron.com problem - thanks for filling me in.

But i would agree that the idea that IDW is robbing fanfics is ridiculous (as is the notion that just one fanfic delves into Megatron's background), unless there is something more to back it up than "i wrote this fanfic about Megatron's past so this is a rip off obviously"
QFT

i know for a fact that a lot of the creative forces behind the TF comics stray away from stuff like fan fiction so somebody doesnt go around "ZOMG THEY STOLE MY STORY!!!111"

if you honestly believe that you are the first [or only] one to come up with a Megatron origin story then i dont know what to say other than you're crazy!

if the comic comes out and its word for word, page for page, identical to your story then come talk to me

but its pretty unproper of you to accuse IDW of stealing your ideas [especially when you've not read it :P]


so yeah

take it easy :P

i've made my own Megatron/Transformers origin story before but that doesnt mean i ripped you/your story off

What's this about accusations? Where are the accusations in this thread?

You're right about your own story of course.

It's no wonder if someone interpretes your comments as accusations. :rolleyes:

See my 'Malevolent Dawn' story in the Creative section on Seibertron.com for an earlier version of the Megatron Origin story.

Wait until May and see if this old story (which I know well) is more similar to the new IDW story, or if my fanfic is more similar.

It is odd that online access to my fanfic section on Seibertron.com has been blocked for several days now, despite my reporting the problem to them. Why could this be?!

I'd imagin that Furman will go for something new with IDW Meg's origin, just to distance it from the DW stuff that also used the Gladiator backstory.

Also- If IDW ever nick my "Cosmos puts on a bowler hat and does an Odd Job impression" story I shall sue.

It wouldn't stand up in court! Except perhaps on Quintessa.

When Seibertron.com is back to normal, read my fanfic - it's superb!

[Hmm, Cosmos in a bowler hat ... must rip that off tonight.]

[Thinks about it.]

[Maybe Brawn in a bikini instead.]
