Hello, Comic Vine Fan-Ficers! Excuse me for talking to you like you're from an alien planet, but this is my first post on the FF board. A friend of mine who I write comics with said I should check out this board, so here I am! However, I'm more than a bit confused about how this board works. The pinned threads aren't really helping, only sending me to older, broken threads or expecting me to know more than I do. To put it simply, all I know is that you guys write stories. Nothing else. So could someone explain to me how this works, as basically as possible? I'm wondering about things like the rules, what Fan-Fic groups are, if you guys use your own characters or pre-existing ones, and other incredibly pathetic questions. Can anyone here help me out?

@rulerofthisuniverse:

The FF rules thread is up to date. We write existing characters, and originals characters. Groups are "shared universes" where some of our stories over lap. Or at least coexist.

@wildvine: Thanks! I might think of more questions later, but for now what are the main Fan-Fic groups I can potentially sign-up for? Or are there just a gigantic amount of them? Or are they private groups?

@rulerofthisuniverse:

Almost all groups welcome new writers. Unfortunately the shelf life of a group is not very long. Also, it depends on what you want to write. DC Mayhem is a good group, but you have to pass a trial to get in. DC Re-invented is good if you want to re-Imagine DC characters. If you want to write original character, @spideyivydaredevilfan26 would probably let you write in his universe.

@wildvine: First off, thanks for the follow, I'll follow you back :)

Secondly, that sounds really cool, but is there a reason that it hasn't been posted on in a month and the creator hasn't posted anything in 2 weeks? Is it an old group, or are they continuing it in a PM?

@rulerofthisuniverse:

I'm not in the group, so I can't really say for sure. But like I said, groups have short shelf lives. The creator may simply be too busy to update the library. Or maybe they just got tired of it.

You could always just start your own group. Writers are always fast to jump on new groups.

DCRI's not dead. Just that RedHood has been busy recently. I'm pretty sure I'd be able to add you and he'd be fine with it. Depends who you want to write.

@tommythehitman: Sounds cool. Is there a collection/library of what's already been written, so I could check what's available? Or do you guys just discuss that stuff in a PM?

@maccyd: Is that every series and issue that's currently been made, or has it not been updated in a while?

Hey Tommy, on topic. Do you think I could import my Harley/Creeper thing from Re-Imagined?

@rulerofthisuniverse: Pretty much, except for some of the upcoming series are now current and the odd recent one-shot like Deadshot.

@maccyd: Okay, seems awesome. I think I'm going to sign up. I'll probably read what's already been written before I choose my character, but it sounds really cool. Is there a PM or thread or something you guys talk in?

@rulerofthisuniverse: Yeah, but you'll probably need Redhood's permission before signing up, good luck!

@maccyd: Any idea when he's coming back or if he's coming back? His profile says he hasn't posted in over two weeks.

@tommythehitman: I think I'll decide after I read what's in the library. Thanks so much, though :) I'll tell you when I choose.

@rulerofthisuniverse: You're allowed to use characters in more than one title just communication would be hassle, it's up to you.

@maccyd: Yeah, I guess I'll just use Question, then. Before I start thinking of plot ideas, though, how long should an issue be? Is there a schedule or due date for when you need to post the next issue?

@cbishop: Thanks!

And of course I'm the ruler of this universe. If I wasn't, why would my name be ruler of this universe?

@tommythehitman: @maccyd: I've got some really great ideas for The Question, so whenever either of you guys get back, could you add me to that PM you were talking about earlier?
