Part of summary: “This just takes out all the inappropriate stuff in the books”

Me:


 WTF could they have cut out?  I can’t even….with what it’s about…how can you retain the plot and cut out the violence?  I am so puzzled…

IKR?! And it’s just ASKING for a world of hate to be brought down on this writer. What made the books so awesome was it’s realistic. You can’t have a battle to the death without having, you know, DEATH. This isn’t TWILIGHT - thinks don’t get glossed over and faded to black. Much of life isn’t appropriate. I get this person didn’t think it was appropriate (though apparently they read the entire series, from what I could tell), but don’t write a fic. Just fucking deal.

It’s only a matter of time before someone notifies Suzanne Collins that someone is abridging her copyrighted material without permission. This goes beyond mere derivative works such as fanfic; it’s the re-publication of Collins’s book.

Addenda:

@Evrymeeveryyou Never read Hunger Games, but I think Pip mentioned FFN
as the source of most HG fanfic. Unless the idiot posted to LJ.
