Administrivia: The Fic May Be Yours, but the Trope Page Is Ours
We need to make this policy clear: The fact that you wrote the fic gives you no say in whether or not we have a write-up on it. You quite expressly do not have the right to have our page taken down because you wish to disown your work or because you don't like the tropes we have found in it. The page here is ours. The fic is yours. When you published the fic, either online or otherwise, you were releasing it into the world to be read and remarked on. The fact that you have changed your mind about publishing now does not give you the right to throw away our work.

Please do not even request that we cut a page on your work.

Incidentally, this applies to any work, not just fanfics. Just to make that clear.
