Hi this is totally gonna sound fake but it's not! Yeah that's not reassuring is it? Anyway I need to warn you that someone is author shaming you! So basically your story was added to a community called "Reportable offense!" because whoever runs it has labeled your story as a violation of the community guidelines. It is LITERALLY author shaming, and they did it to me too.

Here's the community weblink community/Reportable-offense/101067/3/0/1/

Your story is on THIS, and they probably put it on here without even asking you and you don't deserve to be publically shamed like that even if there is supposedly a "violation of community guidelines" and all that. Ouch. Please help me warn the other authors on the community page?

Since it has the copied lyrics of Amano Tsukiko's "Koe", it breaks the following part of the Content Guidelines:

Actions not allowed:
3. Copying from a previously published work (including musical lyrics) not in the public domain.

Please remove all of the copied lyrics from your story before someone can use them as evidence in their abuse reports.

And in case you're wondering when and why that rule is made, here is the background information. Back on April 27, 2005, the admins put this message on the front page regarding songfics:

In addition, [this site] would like to address a growing problem. For whatever reason, some writers feel it's okay to copy-n-paste musical lyrics they have not written into their fiction. If you did not write it, do not post it. This has always been our policy. Please remove these entries immediately to avoid account closure.

Keep in mind that "public domain" means something that has expired intellectual properties, like Shakespearean works. And disclaimers don't cut it for song lyrics. Not even changing a few words from the original song will be enough.
