I read that fic! Was a good fic. I used to draw a lot of sesskag fanart back in the day. It's been ages though.
Sucks for people taking other people's art without permission, but it's what we resign outselves to when we put it online unfortunately. I've had my share of art theft. Some people just take when they see an opportunity and thus ruin things for the rest of us who actually have a sense of respect for the artists we admire.
Well I mean... I hate to be rude and pick a fight but, it's not really like you're entitled to her art (: It's her property, and if she feels that it isn't safe here on deviantart, then it's up to her to take it down (:
