But I haven't found the need to go searching for it either

that's an automatic dislike for an author from me.

I guess she's afraid someone will write better than her

yes, well, some fanfic writers are clearly superior to published ones.

That's what I mean though, some could say as she got published off of twilight fan fiction that she was a better writer.

I started writing a fanfic three years ago (for a completely unrelated book-series ) and the last book from the actual series was published just a few months ago.
Two of "my newly introduced characters" quite literally now exist in the last book
I'm convinced the author read my fanfiction

But yes, I agree, an author so set against fanfic isn't a likeable thing.

Maybe it was just two predictable characters?

Not really Quite unique.
The story is about "savants", people who have gifts like being able to heal, being able to see emotions, stuff like that.
I came up with 2 new partners with 2 new gifts. And the writer used the same gifts down to the same partner-combinations
I'm Not bothered by it, just find it funny

I completely made a strange sentence in my other post though Fixed that

Why am I not surprised. Pretty disillusioning what goes on sometimes.

I think it may be a coincidence. I mean whilst studying Creative Writing, we were taught that no one has an original idea. Plenty of people use the same plot devices. If you're friends, I'd just ask her, but if not, it's just a common plot device.

Well, apart from the fact that this really isn't that common (sticking to my guns here, there are a lot of details the same ), I'm right there with you in thinking it's a coincidence. My fanfic isn't that popular, so unless she would've searched it out, which I don't think she would, it seems implausible that she took the idea(s) from me.
I do indeed know about the idea that no idea is original

I do follow the writer on Facebook and won a book from her once through a writing challenge of hers, but I'm not going to PM her asking about it or pointing my fanfic out Maybe she doesn't even support fanfic, I have no idea

Either way, I just thought it was a funny coincidence
