One of the main reasons AFF is a moderated fanfiction archive is because we want to prevent plagiarism. For every new story submitted, we use Google to check if it is a plagiarized story. Since Google isn't a 100% effective way to detect plagiarized work, we cannot guarantee that there are no plagiarized stories on this site.
Plagiarism is a serious offense. There's absolutely ZERO tolerance for it.
If we find a plagiarized story here:
- it will be immediately deleted and
- the author convicted of plagiarism will be banned forever.
