Milk is an RPF story featuring Andy Pettitte, a baseball player.

It was the centerpiece of a cease and desist letter by Pettitte's attorneys over its inclusion at FanDomination.Net.

The story was twenty chapters long. The lawyers had many issues with the story, but specifically cited chapter 16 for suggesting that Pettitte had engaged in "criminal conduct," which is likely a reference to same-sex sexual activities: "A review of the article reveals that the false statements about Mr. Pettitte and his family were made with knowledge of their falsity or with a reckless disregard for the truth. In fact, at least one part of the article, Chapter 16, includes statements that Mr. Pettitte has engaged in criminal conduct. These accusations are false and amount to libel per se. Thus, Mr. Pettitte is entitled to recovery without proving any special damages sustained from the defamatory statements." [1]
