Ao3 removed the fic and sent me the following message:

After investigating your complaint, the AO3 Policy & Abuse committee has determined that the work “The Boy Who Has Fire” by Familiar_Anonymous did in fact contain material plagiarized from your work “Birth of the Serpent King”. This is a violation of our Terms of Service, section IV.E., and accordingly, the offending material has been removed. However, we have also determined that there was insufficient evidence of plagiarism of the other works included in your complaint.


I checked the link and the story is no longer on a03. I'm relieved but also still irritated by the plagiarism and the four month wait on a response.

Did they suspend or remove the person from AO3 as well?

If it should happen again (I really hope it doesn't just to be clear).. why not mention it earlier so those that follow you (including me) can also report the story/author? .. If nothing else there's power in numbers and it would increase the chance that they'll do something about it within a far shorter period of time. Have a good day/night.

Honestly, I am not surprised it took so long, it seems to take them along time to reply to reports.
