It was brought to my attention tonight that the newest fic by suzyluvsspike, titled "Leave me Breathless", was possibly plagiarized. After looking into it and entering a part of the story's summary into Google, I located the original fic without difficulty. Here is the link to the original story- http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1069893/1/

The summary is the same (with the exception of names), the chapter titles are the mainly the same with one or two word changes, and the chapters are the same (except for the name changes).

Here's is suzyluvsspike's summary- Buffy was merely a simple small town graduate in computer science looking for a job in the city. The last thing she had expected was to fall into the arms of multimillionaire Spike Crawford...

And here is the original- Usagi was merely a simple small town graduate in computer science looking for a job in the city. The last thing she had expected was to fall into the arms of multimillionaire Heero Yuy...

Here are the first few lines of suzyluvsspike's first chapter- "That is it!" the brown-haired woman shouted angrily, slamming shut the door to the spacious apartment she shared with her friend. Kicking off her shoes, she threw her purse onto the kitchen table and poured herself a much-needed cup of coffee, black coffee.

"Problems at work again, Cordy?" a blond haired woman teased, practically bouncing into the room, her sky blue eyes dancing with mischief as she seated herself across from her housemate.

Cordellia's angry brown eyes glared at the other woman. "Im quitting tomorrow," she replied flatly, downing her cup of coffee in one gulp. "I cannot stand that man!"

Her companion grinned. "Oh come on. There has to be a reason why hes the most eligible bachelor in all of L.A," she answered.

"Yea, his money, his money, and let me think. . .his money!" Cordellia yelled, her temper flaring. "No wonder the job as his secretary was wide open, despite the salary."

"Problems at work again, Rei?" a blond haired woman teased, practically bouncing into the room, her sky blue eyes dancing with mischief as she seated herself across from her housemate.

Reis angry purple eyes glared at the other woman. "Im quitting tomorrow," she replied flatly, downing her cup of coffee in one gulp. "I cannot stand that man!"

Her companion grinned. "Oh come on. There has to be a reason why hes the most eligible bachelor in all of Japan," she answered.

"Yea, his money, his money, and let me think. . .his money!" Rei yelled, her temper flaring. "No wonder the job as his secretary was wide open, despite the salary."


Here are the first few lines of chapter 2 from suzyluvsspike-

**********************************

Chapter 2 – Welcome to L.A

**********************************

Taking out the checklist she had made earlier that day and a pen from her desk, the young woman deftly put a checkmark next to all the things she had already packed into her medium-sized suitcase. There were her necessities, of course, some pieces of clothing, and other mementoes that her friends had given her at her farewell party last night.

She picked up an elegant silver picture frame sitting on her nightstand. All her friends, old and young, were in the picture. She sighed softly, briefly questioning her decision to leave her beloved hometown. However, she knew that her parents were right. She would never find a job that she enjoyed here.

A knock on the door startled her from her reverie, and the blonde quickly called out, "Come in!"

Although it is possible to assume the author writes for both fandoms, the original story is from 2002-2003, so it seems odd that they would wait for a couple of years before turning it into a Spuffy story. I also tried to contact the original author, but their e-mail address no longer exists, which further proves that there is a problem here.

The story has been taken down from The Spuffy Realm unless the author has valid proof that they wrote the original story found on fanfiction.net. Thank you to the people who informed me of this possible problem, and may I remind you all that plagiarizing a story - even if it's not Spuffy- is NOT allowed here and is incredibly unfair to the original author, along with being in poor taste. We take plagiarism very seriously here at The Spuffy Realm and are looking out for every author's best interests.

P.S. I apologize for the length of this, but it wouldn't let me post under 1000 words.
