    I've been working on one of my pieces, and while I've come up with the characters myself, anyone with anime experience is going to be able to tell what my influences are. The story is about shinigami, but it's more like Death Note had an encounter with Full Moon and she brought along a side of Fushigi Yugi and InuYasha. I've done as best as I can to avoid even the slightest hint of plagiarism, but you can tell I didn't invent the concept of the shinigami.

    So would my story get lumped in as a fic or would it be something as simple as an homage?
