On February 12, 2014, Mock-Fiction IV – Alea Iacta Est, was removed because a user complained about it being “offensive”. The admin staff that contacted me said that he appeared “genuinely distress” by the some of the comments made in the story.
Note: This was not a One Direction fan.
There was only one character change in this Mock-Fiction. Only one.
I did not understand why he was “offended” or “genuinely distressed”. There was a plot-change, and I changed his character’s name, so that the character was no longer associated with him.
I don’t see why this is “offensive”.
I wonder, would he have preferred that I kept his name the same and villianized him?
Honestly, would he have preferred that?
And, on that note, isn’t that exactly what (*cough* Father of Italian Literature *cough*) Dante Alighieri did in his The Divine Comedy with his political rivals? He made them all burn in Hell, in his Inferno!
He stated here:
That I could use him in the story. I didn’t specify what role – hero, villain, commoner, etc. – and so the freedom to express was mine.
I could well have made him a villain.
But I chose not to, because I don’t fall that far down a bottle. I gave him a chance – regardless of the fact that we had a few spats – and I changed his character name.
And – in all honesty – I’ve come to dislike him.
Why he decided to feed on my, as he calls it, “grudges”, I have no idea. I literally have had nothing to do with him since our last argument.
But I have to be honest:
I am sick of giving him chances.
He doesn’t seem to take them seriously.
And since he couldn’t leave a comment or query, and instead… I’m going to stop there, since this is supposed to be formal, not my Anger Management venting-session.
I’m removing him entirely from the story.
From this day forward, the user is no longer to be associated with the Mock-Fictions – as an entirety – in an way, shape or form. He is also no longer to be associated with the Brotherhood – fictional or otherwise – in any way, shape or form. And finally, he is no longer to be associated with myself, Midnight Rogue – again, fictional or otherwise – in any way, shape or form.
The permanent character in the series is Assassin Richard Il Mentore, not the previous user in question.
And, for fear that another character may become “genuinely distressed” and “offended” by her character-change, the user that was formally associated with Abbess Britney is also dismissed from the story.
Here is the evidence showing that she signed up for this series:
Again I repeat:
From this day forward, the user is no longer to be associated with the Mock-Fictions – as an entirety – in an way, shape or form.
She is also no longer to be associated with the Brotherhood – fictional or otherwise – in any way, shape or form.
And finally, she is no longer to be associated with myself, Midnight Rogue – again, fictional or otherwise – in any way, shape or form.
I know this may seem a little unfair, but from all the over-hauling I’ve been doing: I’m sorry, it seems I can’t take any chances.
Any references, dedications and quotes that I may have made/used in the story concerning these two users have been removed and replaced by simple notices.
I humbly request that you both remove my name from any movellas you have published – whether it be promotive endorsement or as a character. If you would remove any comments I have made on your page or on your movellas – positive, negative, critical, or otherwise – I would equally grateful.
Aunt Midnight Rogue.
