Cool Reading about yourself in someone else's recruitment story

New user, but long time lurker.

Have you ever read about yourself in someone else's recruitment story? Albeit not by name, but with enough details that you know it's you the author is talking about.

No, I'm not wearing pink sequins...

No, but that would either be horrifying or hilarious!

It quickly went from "Haha, I know who wrote this!" to "Wait...what? Is she talking about ME??!"

No, but I have had a couple friends figure out my recruitment story based on googling "Clemson recruitment" and finding it online. It amuses me more than anything else.

Oh, CloverMom, I WISH we had a “like” button.

But, when I POSSIBLY may have figured out the 2 universities and sororities from the original pink sequins story, I got really excited! (Oklahoma and Tulsa Universities. Think they both pledged DG.)

ChioLu, that's the thread that got ME hooked! I was inspired to write my own retro rush story after that whole pink sequinned twin fiction.

Aside from the poor writing and over-the-top pretentiousness, the biggest tipoff to me that it was fanfic was that the daughter of a supposed pageant-obsessed Miss America first runner up couldn't spell the word pageant.

Also that John pmed me and said she had the same IP as someone who had claimed to be a Pi Phi under another name and a Kappa under yet another.

Needless to say, most of it was fiction. I had to sit on my fingers to keep from commenting on a thread from so many moons ago. It was very hard to type after that, but I persevered!

I even searched for fanfiction on other sites, just to get some kind of closure.
