Hello everyone it's that time again.

Gotham Central is a Fan Fic group based around the Bat Family living in Gotham City and beyond as well as Batman's various villains and rogues.

Essentially in this universe Batman has been Batman for around 15 years with his world having evolved and changed over time. The lore of the universe essentially ends at the end of Scott Snyder's run so there's a good chunk of the Bat Family to choose from. Other DC Heroes such as Superman and... let's say the Canterbury Cricket do exist in universe and can be used however the focus of the group is essentially on the heroes and villains of the worst city on Earth.

Library Link

Without further ado here's the current list of titles:

TDK_1997 - The Batman.

TommytheHitman - Nightwing.

Batkevin74 - GCPD Undercover.

Cbishop - Cassandra Cain

Avenging-X-Bolt - Red Robin, The Creeper.

CyanideBuzzard - Zatara

IndomitableRegal - Red Hood

Sawed_Off_It - Mad Hatter

If you're interested in joining the group either shoot me a PM or simply comment below and let me know who you want. ;)

@tommythehitman: I don't know too much about Batman mythos and its characters, but I wouldn't mind. Although i'm super busy at the moment. Hence the lack of chapter 2 for Wiccan.

I’m going to write about a undercover cop inside one of the Gotham crime families

@tommythehitman: Two questions: 1) Do I have to keep my stories in continuity with everyone else? 2) What's Cassandra Cain called in this version?

@cbishop: It has to be in continuity but you don’t have to tie in or reference anything else.

Cassie can be called whatever you want. Though she will have briefly gone by Orphan at some point.

@tommythehitman: Crud. I don't know anything Batman from New 52 on. Except broad strokes like he had 5 Robins, and Joker cut his own face off. I don't mind calling her Orphan, but I'd be writing Cassie pretty much from what I remember of her from her Batgirl series.

Well technically "Gotham Central" is Gotham City's Central Police Station.

I think that the name for this group is mis-choosen.

Also, why make it a private group ??

@jb681131: It’s just a cool sounding name for the group really, not super important.

It’s not private either, anyone can join if they just comment who they wanna write and have a neat idea.

First post, but I'm gonna request either a Zatara or Maxie Zeus series. Figured it'd be interesting to delve into the magical corner of Gotham. Not entirely too sure on the details yet; whichever one isn't the protagonist will likely be a supporting character.

@indomitableregal: Basically it’s an FF Group where you pick a character from the Batfamily and write stories with them in a shared little universe.

@tommythehitman: ...Go on. Lol.

How shared is this universe, how long does this last (is this some like cosa nostra "blood in, blood out" type thing O_O), how often do you write, how long is each story, etc.

@indomitableregal: Shared as you want you can tie it all together or just do your own thing. Normally these groups last a couple months and then fizzle out. Write often as you want and as little as you want.

@tommythehitman: Does the story have to be about the Batman family themselves or could they be side-characters? I'm already working on a story so adding it to this group may or may not work out. And, is anyone already using Arkham Asylum for their story? If they are, I'll stay away from this series.

Edit: Meant to say that this is Jexsu. Also, I have a logo/symbol we all could use for this group.

@tommythehitman:

This still open?

I assume we are just writing for a Gotham character of our choosing?

@sawed_off_it: Yep still open. You can use any character as long as they’re not already taken.

@tommythehitman: Ok I apologize for the abundance of questions. Does it matter if they are hero or antagonists?

@sawed_off_it: It’s fine, and it doesn’t matter. Just as long as the villain isn’t being planned for use or anything. ;)

@sawed_off_it: As In you’re reading the group library?

Essentially just take a Gotham based character and write a story on them that’s set in the same universe as other titles.

@tommythehitman: As in, this is brand new to me and I am just getting a feel for it.

You cleared it up though. Thank you
