Oh joy...

A reviewer on ff.net has just more or less accused me of plagiarising the final scene of chapter XVI of Dead Trouble - apparently it's similar to a scene in a story published four years ago. It's difficult to see how I could avoid writing the scene like that, given the essential ingredients of a certain reporter and a certain domestic appliance, and some need to make the reporter encounter the appliance, but apparently I am supposed to rewrite it to reduce the similarity. Yeah, right. I took a look at the story and am bloody sure I never read it - it's an angsty and VERY long pure Potterverse fic, a genre I tend to avoid - but I suppose that I will have to put some sort of disclaimer at the end of the next chapter.
