In Nanoha, the power levels are fairly high (think about a Mahou Shoujo version of Dragonball or Gundam), so the replacement of a major character is a fairly serious problem too.
For a direct example, the mission "Legendary Illogic", by Firemagic and me. Basically, a Replacement!Nanoha, after being completely drained of her magic power, still managed to survive being struck by a very powerful lightning-based attack. (And by "very powerful", we mean "we had to basically resort to the most powerful combination technique we had while wondering if it was actually plausible for PPC Agents")
About Madoka, our only hope is that nothing exits from pre-Madokami Madokaverse (exceptions made for recruits, of course).
Especially Kyubey. Although the nursery problem can be easily solved by making Kyubey-hating Agents make surveillance turns. If he just keeps being shredded on sight with extreme prejudice and without being able to get near potential magical girls, he will reach the point where he will think that going after Nursery teenagers isn't cost-efficient, right?
After all, one of the reasons why he didn't give up on Madoka when Homura started going after him is because he had found a golden-egg-laying hen. Enough energy to fulfill the planet's quota and maybe even more in one go? Homura probably would have had to make his entire race extinct to keep Madoka from being pestered by them.
A few days ago I was reading through some of the awesome stories and entries they have over at the SCP website, and I wondered, just how are universes that could be dangerous to the PPC handled? Such ... more
As well as many things that are hazardous to the health of agents, there are a few fandoms out there which would probably need special procedures to be followed. For example, in the Dresdenverse... more
She can't forget anything, so yeah. Poor dear. I even put it on the Things-I-must-not-do list! Plus, in Dresden Files you have the Outsiders, and the Skinwalker, and Shagnasty... Actually, now I want ... more
That might be why I thought of it actually, I was reading through the List recently (brought on by the latest chapter of it playing out on the Board). Not sure how the not being able to forget things ... more
Yeah, Ivy's smart enough to be leave the PPCers alone, or even offer some kind of subtle assistance if she can. And now I'm gonna go looking through the Pit archives for DF badfic, just to write that ... more
Bear in mind that anything a canon entity learned about the PPC wouldn't be canon, so unless there's a really compelling reason otherwise (such as the character being a god or it just being extremely ... more
She, or rather the Archive (which is her... it's complicated) is supposed to be the living repository of all human knowledge. She can remember all the lives of all the previous Archives, so yeah.... more
Aslan, from the Chronicles of Narnia, has displayed full awareness of the PPC (Being omniscient, etc). It can be completely in-canon for the canon character to have knowledge about the PPC, so long... more
Others have covered doing missions in dangerous universes already, but in the case where the Sue herself is extra dangerous (an overpowered God mode Sue) the general approach is to get backup: either ... more
Let's not forget the merits of trickery. I love it when agents take down massively overpowered Sues by outsmarting them, especially if it involves turning their own bad writing or ridiculous powers... more
The Canon itself is on the PPCers' side. Thus how Agents can derp about in Isengard or a Borg Cube without trouble - they're out of the attention, if not straight-up invisible, to Canon characters... more
There are quite a few fandoms out there with the potential for risk regarding the safety of the PPC. You've got things like radiation, zombie viruses, brain parasites, doppelgangers, mind control... more
That makes sense, though I was looking at it more from an in-universe point of view. Not so much us writing the stories, but as if it was a true existing organisation. Wanted to see peoples different ... more
Is to avoid the dangerous stuff as much as possible. I mean even in SPC-verse the scientist guys still go around testing stuff. It isn't really dangerous unless you're a D-class personnel. Also,... more
I don't think there ARE fanfics--since it's an online thingie, most people who know about it will probably be writing the stories for the website, so there's no need for fanfics. Ohgod, what if... more
The ground rule for the PPC is that none of the stories are canon, only the SCP numbers themselves. So all of the stories on the site are considered fanfics. Also, ohgod. That would be nine levels of ... more
Really. Also, pretty much anything can be dangerous. Think about all the canons where someone wants to take over the world. And is shockingly competent at it. It's not just elder gods, eldritch... more
So what's a guy to do but add stuff to the list? Mass Effect: What about the Reapers? You know, massive eldritch abominations that can dwarf entire fleets of ships and mow down everything in its path ... more
