On the topic of re-writes
Mon Feb 12, 2018 16:05

So, something I do for my own amusements every now and then is take a story by another author and slightly re-write it, it's not always a lot of differences, some times it's just me changing the dialogue a bit and adding some of my own preferred kinks to it, sometimes I double the length of the story with how much I add to it.

Naturally, I don't go around posting that sort of stuff around, it typically adds very little for the people who liked the original story, and I don't usually have the ability to get in touch with the authors to get their permission.

Now this is relevant because I recently re-write the story "Strip HORSE" that is posted on this board, as per usual, it was just a few added paragraphs and some grammar corrections that I happened to catch, but then I figured I'd write a second chapter, because why not, this one is, of course, entirely my own creation with 100% new content.

So to make a long story short (yes, I know, too late), I was wondering if it's frowned upon to post those stories here, bearing in mind that I'd be crediting the original author, is that okay? Should I just forget about it and keep my rewrites to myself?

What do you guys think?

      We recently had a gender-swapped rewrite posted on the story page to great fanfare. There is zero reason why rewrites would be frowned upon, as long as credit was posted.

      Agree with anon, as long as you give credit it should be fine. Seeing some of the older stories made a bit more readable and brought back to the front is nice.

      The truth is many author's read someone else's story and 'borrow' some of the ideas / subject matter to create their own story. Sometimes the new story is very different and sometimes it's more of a... more

      I think as long as you credit the original author, building off a small story and making it your own it totally okay
