A Somewhat Unique Circumstance

"Hi all!

Since I probably won't be able to officially join you guys (my parents don't seem to understand that you're not actually that serious about what you do and instead see you as some sort of self-appointed fanfiction cops), I'd like to create two independent characters, sort of hired fanfic mercenaries who aren't part of the PPC, but look up to you and reference you frequently (perhaps even using a few techniques they learned from the Wiki, without the equipment, of course.) Aside from the fanfic reviews they do, I'm thinking of making a sort of "Main Arc" animated series, in which they get hired for a mission by the PPC (and maybe join up with a couple agents) to cleanse a badfic that I'll make up for the sake of the plot. Since it involves them getting hired by the PPC temporarily, but it's not exactly a PPC story, would I or wouldn't I need permission for that? I promise I'll follow the rules of PPC content if I do need permission (and hopefully if I don't, too, since a lot of those rules are no-brainers for someone as into writing and character creation as I am).

(This is the same person who asked about examples of the PPC uniform and removed an extra L from the C-brian page. Until I get a Wikia account, my Scratch username is twistedwindowpane and you can find me there. However, by the time I create the Main Arc series, I'll probably have moved on to Newgrounds, so keep an eye out for that.)

Thanks!"

    Hey there! After reading the Board FAQ and realizing I don't have to put down an email after all, I'm here! I don't think anyone's seen me yet, but I've been doinking around on the PPC Wiki a couple... more

        In that post, I'm actually not asking for permission now, I'm just asking whether I need to ask for permission later, when I've left Scratch for more peaceful places, when my fanfic reviews are in... more
        • We weren't ignoring you.The Triumvirate, Thu Apr 6 6:40pm
          We were trying to figure out the answer ourselves. This is, after all, rather an unusual situation as far as I've been able to tell; certainly a confusing one.
          • Oh thanks :Ptwistedwindowpane (Twistey), Fri Apr 7 9:12am
            Thanks for letting me know that you weren't ignoring me. Let me know when you've figured out something. (By the way, I thought for a bit, and the answer to whether they'll team up with an Agent in... more
            • No, you shouldn't need Permission for that.Huinesoron, Sat Apr 8 2:07am
              It would be far, far beyond reasonable for us to say that anyone who set their writing in the same multiverse as the PPC needed Permission from us. The OFUs are all in that multiverse, for instance,... more
              • That's right; this could be in the same category as an OFUCat-on-the-Keyboard , Mon Apr 10 2:04am
                I wasn't too clear on what the proposal was the first time I read through, but now it does seem like it would either be similar to an OFU or a cowrite, and either way wouldn't require Permission. So... more

                  ...Not sure what to put here, other than to acknowledge that I read your message. Is there anything else that I need to know, or that you (the PPC) would like to know while we wait for me to get a... more

                    And also, here's a funny question for you. One of my two "hired mercenary" characters tends to throw insults around a lot when angry. What are your favorite insults to use against Mary Sues and OOC... more

                      While we do appreciate your interest in us, we don't all sit around formulating questions in case something like this happens. All of us have things to do - work, school, et cetera - that don't... more

                        Yep. It's official now. I just don't anymore. I usually get on the Board after school at the same time as doing homework (in the words of another Scratch user, "I can't be productive at all!"), so I... more
              • That's right, I suppose this would be like an OFU ^.^Cat-on-the-Keyboard , Mon Apr 10 1:58am
                That is a good way of thinking about the situation. And probably the right way. :P --Key
              • Good grief! Larfen J. Stocke, esq., Sat Apr 8 2:21am
                Nevermind my rubbish - I'd say hS' properly covered all that. Couple things I didn't account for, there. Pardon me!
                • No offense taken! :)twistedwindowpane (Twistey), Sun Apr 9 2:48pm
                  I do understand what you mean by "influencing PPC canon", and I probably would have been fine with needing permission. As I said to Cat-on-the-Keyboard before I realized that I'd had a severe brain... more
            • It's not just about writing agentsLarfen J. Stocke, esq., Sat Apr 8 1:54am
              To be specific, it's about adding to the canon, y'know? So even if you aren't writing agents, and it's not technically a PPC story, and they're just sort've affiliated and influenced by the PPC, it... more

              I think it's pretty clear-cut: you're going to need Permission if you want to do this. And to get Permission, you're going to have to join (introduce yourself, hang around, etc.) -- so, welcome... more

                I think Huinesoron takes precedence here, since they (she? Or is it a joint account? Need to check the page) created the universe. But either way, even though they said I don't need permission, I'm... more

                  Uh, no, I'm neither Jay nor Acacia. ^_^ "We" referred to the entire PPC, and specifically to the Permission Givers of which I am one . I'm curious now, can you link to an example of that meme? I... more

                        1. Probably went without saying, considering this is a massive online community and I just- I don't know. Can somebody teach me some more German? So far the extent of my vocabulary is insults, curse... more
