    Hello!

    Well, hi, I guess. This is my first post, after all. So, well, that's really it. And also, I apparently decided to write this like I'm actually saying it. 

      • Hi there! — The Triumvirate, Wed Jun 7 11:15am Welcome to the PPC! From your name, can it be assumed that you're a Steven Universe fan? (If so, have hugs. If not, have an Archive Binge of Steven Universe.) Either way, for your Newbie Gift, have a full set of roleplaying dice! Usually, I give them some boring theme like "space" or "chocolates", but yours are all carved from gemstones! Enjoy your murder dice.

    Okay, so, this might not seem like very big news, but I just felt like sharing this with other peeps. :)

    I'm writing my own story! It's not a Fanfiction, it's an original story. Namely, a fantasy called Myths of Nymphia. Here's some of what I've worked out!


    Five years prior, the Wizards' Council, after sorting out problems in a village, is returning to the Rosemari Palace. Buuuuuuuut disaster, as it tends to do, strikes. A not-so-subtle assassination attempt occurs that kills several mages, General Coral, and the current Lord of the Council, Reyman Ashe. Oh, and did we mention Reyman's daughter Soleil watches his slow, painful death?

    And since then, things have changed a lot. For one, Soleil's sixteen now, and serving as the new Lord of the Co…

    I'm gonna chuck some thoughts up here just to start getting organized. It will probably change dramatically. I'll put it up for discussion when it's in a state to be worth discussing. {= )


    In order to do something well, it is crucial to understand the purpose of what you are doing. In the case of role-playing, that purpose is to create a story in cooperation with other people.

    Role-playing isn't quite the same as co-writing. Role-play can be more or less improvised, but is generally more improv than plot. A role-play also has as many main characters as there are players, whereas a co-written story must focus on a select number, like any other story.

    In order to work, a role-play must be enjoyable for everyone taking part in it. It is crucial …

    Class is back in session, good members of the PPC! Hope your pencils are sharp, your erasers are fresh, and your notebooks are free of any errant doodles, 'cause it's time for another workshop. I will be focusing on a vital yet often overlooked aspect of writing: reviewing. As per usual, I will start off with advice and observations before concluding with a writing challenge.

    Many thanks to Neshomeh for beta-reading this workshop.


    We write reviews primarily to benefit the author. Good reviews can help the author see how well their work reached the audience. They can see what worked and what didn't through someone else's eyes. The author can then take what they've learned from their feedback and use that to improve their future work.

    Favorite PPC Spin-Offs

    September 13, 2015 by RinaAndRanda

    For anyone who is interested, I've put together a list of my favorite PPC spin-offs. They're not necessarily listed in any order of preference, just put in as they come to mind.

    • Supernumerary and Ilraen's missions, by Neshomeh. The first spin-offs I ever read, and my favorites to this day. The snark is out the window, and I never fail to laugh every time I read her stuff. Derik and Gall are also pretty good, too, but Earwig (written by Phobos) is another favorite. Who doesn't love a kender? :D
    • Speaking of Phobos, Barid and Eamon. Considering that trolls and dwarves are in opposite factions in World of Warcraft, is it really any surprise these two got paired up? You just can't not love the dynamic they have between them. (Plus, dat accent, mon…

    So, you've got yourself a Pernese fire-lizard egg. Congratulations! Fire-lizards are great companions: affectionate, intelligent, and quite useful with proper training.

    If you're not from Pern, though, you may not be familiar with these beautiful creatures and how to care for them outside of their natural habitat. This guide is intended to fix that. Before we dive in, though, there are three things you really need to know about fire-lizards:

    1. They're not lizards!
      In fact, they're not much like anything in the animal kingdom most of us are familiar with. They are warm-blooded and they don't have scales, so they're not reptiles; they don't have hair or nurse their young, so they're not mammals or monotremes, either.
    2. They won't…

    Hello people of the internet! I am here to give those gamers out there a place to share their favourite games or, like the title says, games you know but haven't found anyone else who knows it.

    Who knows, maybe you'll find someone who has heard of the game.

    To start things off I would like to share one of my favourite games of all time: SolaToRobo: Red the Hunter. Haven't heard of it? To be expected. The game is for the DS and is so amazing the theme song has gotten stuck in my head. As of right now I have not found a single person who has heard of it, but maybe one of you guys has. I suggest you check it out, it does have a great plot and cool sprites. It could end up as one of your favourites one day.

    After watching the very informative show of Game Theory I have decided to listen to them. Their point was that both Neville and Harry could have been the Chosen One. Obviously Harry is the one that everyone knows is chosen, but what do you think about Neville? I suggest you check out that video and make your final thoughts here. The video is on Movie Theory which is connected to The Game Theorists channel on youtube. //Now Closed//

    Missions. I think it's safe to argue that they're kind of a big deal around here. Perhaps even the biggest deal. There wouldn't really be a PPC without 'em. So as you can imagine, it's important to write missions well. The following workshop is the first installment of a three-parter focusing entirely on just that. 

    I'm going to be talking about the process PPC writers should go through before they start on their story. That includes picking out a suitable badfic to spork and plotting out a rough outline of what will happen during the mission. As is typically the case with these things, each installment will consist of my own observations and techniques before concluding with a little exercise.


    Badfic isn't exactly hard to find. Fanfiction.n…

  • RinaAndRanda

    "The point of the PPC isn't to be mythic heroes ridding the world of badfic, or even knight-in-shining-armor types cleaning one 'verse at a time - the point is that the agents are borderline-nutcases doing an impossibly large job one teaspoon-full at a time, with half-broken equipment that never was enough for the job, and working in the most messed up corporate environment that ever existed. And humor, ostensibly." -Techno-Dann


    One of these days, I will finish taking down not only the Legendary Rose Potter series, but Little Miss Mary as well. And hopefully slay my own fair share of Sues while doing it, all the while somehow trying to remain sane. Only time will tell if this will be the case.

    Hello, everybody!

    December 5, 2014 by LadyChampion

    I'm really just making this blog post to earn an achievement badge. But since a single line of text is super boring, I have some things to plug!

    First up, this guy does hilarious sketches involving various terrible internet comments. Maybe you've heard of him, maybe not. Go watch him regardless, he's very...PPC-ish.

    This guy right here writes really good fanfiction/original fiction, and he's currently doing a Nuzlocke of Pokemon SoulSilver. Give him a read, especially his My Little Pony fanfiction!

    Also, if you like funny comics, consider checking out LizDraws, formerly known as KirbyDrawer. She has a whole series of Nuzlocke comics, plus FNaF fanart (if, y'know, you're actually into that) and FiM doodles :D

    It might be the middle of summer, but PoorCynic’s school of writing advice is never out of session. It’s time for another (incredibly delayed) workshop/rant/advice/thing. I’ll be covering beta reading and peer editing in this particular post. Subjects I will be touching upon include reading as an editor as well as giving and receiving constructive criticism. As with the previous workshops, I will start with my own personal observations before concluding with a little writing exercise.

    Before we begin: many thanks to Neshomeh for sending me an outline of beta advice from two years ago.

    I meant to add to this blog for quite some time, but have only recently gotten the chance to.

    I have been doing quite a lot of research into the PPC and its history, and unlike when I tried and didn't get permission, I now know what I am doing much better than I had. A big score for me.

    I have also been giving my agents that I used in my previous permission request a needed makeover. I am very pleased with how they are turning out. I may even be ready to ask again soon. Not too soon, though. I don't want to come across as annoying. I may take another week or so to choose new writing prompts and write them well, aside from adding the finishing touches to my agents.

    Lastly, I am already planning the expansive careers of my agents, when they are…

    Ok, so here's the second of my ideas for agents. Feel free to comment below on whether you think she's suitable.

    The mixed ancestry is simply because I couldn't find any canonical female Dunlending names, so decided to make her part Rohirrim and use an Anglo-Saxon name instead. (It's not intended to make her speshul, since I like to believe this racial mix probably occurred fairly often, despite Helm Hammerhand's violent attempt at preserving the Aryan racial purity of his people!)


    Race: Human (Dunlending, but with some Rohirrim ancestry)

    Home Continuum: Arda

    Age: 21

    Hair: Blonde, usually worn in a messy bun

    Eyes: Grey

    Partner: Sean Bellman

    History: She's from a semi-fic blip, an unwritten Boromance in which she was a member of a group of Dunlending ban…

    Since I've foolishly decided to seek Permission, I'll have to create some agents. Well, maybe "create" is the wrong word. It's more like finding them in all the ideas that dance through my head of their own volition.

    So, anyway, here's the first one. (Actually he's the last one I found, but I'm posting them in storyline order. Never mind. It makes sense to me.) Feel free to comment and let me know if he'll be suitable.


    Department: DMS

    Partner: Agent Hild (at the start of the story arc, although this will change)

    Species: Human

    Home Continuum: World One

    Age: 27

    Hair: Dark, cut short

    Eyes: Brown

    Skin: Pale Brown

    Hello, everyone! Dark Brother 16 here, and I am going to be using this blog to document my progress in creating cohesion and coexistence between the PPC and my own series, Imaginations Collide.

    The first thing that I must do is create Imaginations Collide. I have first drafts for several episodes of Imaginations Collide, but nothing has been posted as of yet. I will most likely post the episodes to an as of yet non existent website dedicated to the series.

    After that, I will create tie ins with the PPC. I am officially a member of both the PPC and Imaginations Collide (How weird would it be if I was not a member of my own series' staff?), so it's all a matter of working out the wrinkles after I begin posting PPC missions and Imaginations Col…

    Current Goal

    March 14, 2014 by Y2k890

    I am planning to get permission when I can.

    Unfortunately though, my first attempt has failed. So now I will be working on a complete rewrite of the profiles I originally posted as well as choosing two different writing prompts when I finish rewriting the profiles. 

    Having reread the original thread where I was denied permission, I have now decided to completely abandon one of the agents I wrote and keep the profile of the other one. Unfortunately though, I decided to delete the original post of that agent's profile. Fortunately, I remember a majority of the information in his profile.

    Workshop Two: Speech

    January 27, 2014 by PoorCynic

    That's right, folks! Sit up straight and get out your notebooks, 'cause it's time for the second of my possibly many workshop/rant/advice/things. Today's subject will be speech and speaking -- specifically, speeches and speaking done by your characters. I'll go over how to make it, how to intertwine it with your characterization, and how to avoid abusing it. Just as last time, I will begin with my own personal recommendations and conclude with an open writing challenge.


    I'll be using the words "speech" and "voice" quite a few times over the course of this post. These are both being used to describe a character's manner of verbal communication. "Dialogue" refers to shared communication between two or more characters, just as "monologue" refe…

    Workshop One: Characters

    January 20, 2014 by PoorCynic

    I've seen this issue come up on the Board time and time again: hopeful writers presenting would-be that fail to meet the standards of the PPC in their bids for permission. It's a tricky thing, trying to make a good character without falling into a few pitfalls. So, as I mentioned wanting to try my hand at a few workshops in my return message, I decided to start off with character creation. I'l begin with a few tips and tricks of my own and conclude with a writing challenge for all of you.

    NOTE: The following is geared mostly towards making PPC agents, but can be applied to creating characters for works outside of our little group as well.


    Typically when one creates a new character, one has at least a basic idea of what said character is goin…

    What Neshomeh Is Up To

    Hi, guys! I've been thinking for a while that I might make use of this blog service to give myself a handy checklist of what I'm doing on the wiki and elsewhere PPC-wise, and to make myself a little more transparent and accountable. This might also give me a place to talk about stuff like obscure orthographic rules, or whatever else is buzzing in my bonnet. We'll see!


    Status: Ongoing

    The "titles" project started with editing all the continua pages, continued into editing all the agent pages, and keeps on anytime I see a page with incorrectly styled titles.

    Just a reminder: titles of long works get italics. Titles of short works get "double quotes" on pages with American usage or 'single quotes' on pages with UK/Commonwealth usage. Please remembe…

    The 2012 Formula 1 championship ended, and Vettel "won" it by 3 points over Ferdinando Alonso.

    The quotation marks are necessary here, as there are several things wrong about both the pilot's behaviour during the last race and especially the Red Bull car during at least the final four ones...


    First of all, the infamous "yellow flag" during the Brazil GP. There was a bit of confusion, as the electronic system has still yellow flags when a marshal started waving the green one. I can understand that. But, AFAIK, the green flag signals that, from that point onwards, you are free to resume the race. Vettel started the overtake maneuver before he passed the green flag. Other drivers have been penalized for that exact maneuver, so why he isn't?

    TOS Sues Are Getting Pictures

    November 20, 2012 by Meow139

    I'm sure some people have noticed that some of the TOS Mary Sues have been getting pictures recently. Yes, it's true. I'm behind those, and I intend to make visuals for each TOS Sue.

    The dollmaker I use gives specific wardrobe sets, and they don't have a Middle Earth set. So this won't be very easy for me to put together, but I really want to try. Don't expect them to be perfect, because some of the Sues (coughKylinacough) have incredibly stupid outfits.

    If you like my pictures and want me to make one for a Sue that YOU killed, or even for an agent, ask me here on my talk page. I'm meow139 on the Board, if you want to ask me there.

    Not on purpose, and not in real life!

    One of my friends asked me if she could create a blood elf hunter of her own on my Warcraft account about two weeks back. I thought, Okay, cool, here's a chance to get one of my friends hooked on WoW, and told her to knock herself out.

    Well, she did. Hard.

    Not physically, of course, because that would be silly and might also cause her serious pain when she woke up, not to mention the risk of concussion and--[really long medical bantering ripped straight from Untold Stories of the ER]. No, I mean she knocked herself out in the most brutal way she could manage it while still remaining metaphorical (and conscious).

    So the new talent system in World of Warcraft sucks icicles. I had my level 73 Beast Mastery Huntress about two-thirds through the old talent tree system, and now this...new cluster system has wiped all of those out and forces me to choose one talent from each level cluster. And the level clusters are 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, and 90. Six talents.

    Also, poor Roahega (my dragonhawk) has only six talent-based powers in place of his original twenty.

They were that big.

    Hey everyone. I'm new here, and I've just written a fic based off of Agony in Pink. It is a retelling of that story, in a less violent, more easy-for-the-eyes way. I really, really didn't know who else to turn to, so here I am, spreading it just now.

    Don't worry, you won't need any Bleeprin. Well, maybe some. But not terrible doses, like the original one.

    I'm fairly new to this badfic stuff, and this is my tribute to it. It's a badfic/darkfic, more likely. I don't care if it's bad.... I just needed to get it off my chest.

    Writing fanfic that’s as good as canon is still a bar most fans can’t hope to reach. But the PPC doesn’t look for fic to mock near the bar. It looks past the bar beneath that bar, and the bar under that, and finally peels back the mat underneath the lowest bar and boggles at the grime found underneath. The stories by supposed fans who seem to have forgotten that the high bar even exists. A slightly modified quote by Araeph. (The original can be found here)

    I think this quote in not just funny, but also enlightening, because it highlights the fact that it is actually very hard for a fanfiction writer to get his or her fic sporked by the PPC. Not just because of statistics – we don’t know how many agents there are, but we know that they are no…
