Sorry if this is OT for this group, didn't know where to ask.
I understand deleting your fic if you are being stalked/sued, but otherwise, what's up?
I tend to come into fandoms late, and it annoys me when people delete, purge, block from wayback machine, and request not be posted anywhere.
If you at one time liked writing fanfic enough to post, and your stories were well received, then ???
Also, I have seen that a couple people pulled their fic because they got/are seeking a professional publishing contract. Does anyone know if this is for legal reasons, or that they are afraid the publisher will find out they wrote fanfic?
Thanks!

I'm torn when I see that, because on one hand I'm not going to tell the writer what to do...on the other hand, fans may not be as hard on the story as the writer almost inevitably is, and it's sad to see the loss of something that's loved.

OT: Thank you for introducing me to Egidiuslied from your icon. I finally got so curious that I looked up the phrase, and it's lovely! I haven't found any translations into a language that I know, sadly.

I deleted one recently because I wanted to submit it for publication. Guess what? It's going back up again soon.

I imagine the reasons are as varied as thpeople who pull their fics. People change, and what they once enjoyed may not work for them any more.

It's a good thing you asked this coz I've been curious too. I guess it's just sad that we don't have them now to enjoy.
