What is the PPC?
The Protectors of the Plot Continuum, or PPC, is a fictional organization dedicated to the extermination of badfic. It is a consensual reality based on the writings of its members, known as PPCers or Boarders, but most especially on the original PPC series by Jay and Acacia.
So, you're new here?
- Wait, what?
Ahem. Welcome, newcomer! What brings you to our neck of the woods?
If you're looking to join the PPC, you should go introduce yourself on the PPC Posting Board. That's where we hang. This is just where we keep track of all the various crazy things our members get up to—and believe me, that's a lot of crazy.
There are a few things that we routinely ask new people to read when they join up. If you want to get a jump on it, here they are:
- The Original Series by Jay and Acacia. This is the series on which all the rest of this is based.
- The PPC Constitution, which applies equally on the Board, on the wiki, in the IRC room, and anywhere else you choose to represent the community. You can sign it here!
- If you're planning to write PPC stories, please see the Permission article.
If you're not planning to join up, you're probably here for one of two reasons:
- You heard of us somewhere and had an attack of curiosity, or
- One of us sporked one of your stories.
In the case of number one, hi there! Feel free to look around all you like. If you have any questions and can't find answers, feel free to swing by the Board and ask us.
In the case of number two, you may be wondering why this happened. Well, we've come prepared with this handy FAQ. That should pretty much cover all the bases, but if not, you're also welcome to drop by the Board and ask about it. We promise not to bite.
Introduced yourself on the Board? Been showered with lots of virtual gifts? Excellent! You're officially a PPC Boarder. What would you like next?
More information, please!
It can be a little hard to navigate the currents of tradition and random silliness, so we've prepared some materials to help you out. These are them.
- FAQ: The Board - this'll help you learn to use the Board if you're having trouble.
- FAQ: For Newbies - this will help with general PPC questions that new people often have. If what you're looking for isn't answered here, just shout out on the Board.
- Guide to the PPC - a companion to the above, this gives a more detailed history of the group and what we're all about.

If you're interested in contributing to the wiki, that's fantastic. Just sign up!
I know, I know, Wikia says you don't have to have an account to edit, but we're a pretty tight community here, and nameless people messing around gives some of us the creeps. Signing up takes less than a minute, and all you need is a username—preferably the same as your penname on the Board, but if it's taken, using something else is okay.
Before you edit, please read Neshomeh's Editing Tutorial, which contains important information about PPC Wiki's etiquette and style. For additional help, see Wikia's help site. Try using the sandbox page to experiment!
If you've gotten Permission and you're ready to make pages for your characters and post your missions, see these pages:
Need more to do? There's plenty! Take your pick:
- Some good places to start editing are the lists of stub articles and articles that need work.
- Alternatively, you could check the special pages for short or dead-end articles, or check out the wanted pages listing to see if you can contribute things we're missing, or anything else that takes your fancy.
