Hey guys--

I'm writing a paper for one of my media classes looking at the various ideas/forms of ownership in media characters/plots and looking closely at ideas of ownership within fandom as part of it.

So, I just have a few questions I would really appreciate people giving me their thoughts on (with the right to quote you--anonymously/by handle not name) in my paper. If you could help me out, I'd greatly appreciate it

Please only answer these if you actively participate in fandom in some way--I don't want to start a "fanfiction is bad omg" war. You don't need to be a writer, but at least read fanfic and enjoy it. If you only have answers for one or two of the questions, that's cool, too--you don't have to answer all of them to participate!


1) Why is taking characters/plots from writers/TV shows/movies/etc and writing fanfiction okay, to you? Beyond the disclaimers of "don't own these characters" is there a moral sense that it's okay, because you aren't hurting the owners of characters, or is there something else? Some deeper reason you feel this is a valid practice?

2) Are disclaimers such as "don't own anything, all owned by X" necessary? Appropriate? Why/why not?

3) Is it okay to take someone's fanfic that you loved, and write your own set within the world they created (i.e. someone taking my Post-apocalypse Heroes fic and continuing it (does Peter forgive Adam? Do Mohinder and Sylar work things out? Is Angela pissed Adam had Arthur killed?) or writing something spin-offy from it--what does the time traveler do once he's banished from Hawaii?)? Why? Why not?

4) For RPers: Is it appropriate/okay to RP someone else's OC somewhere they don't play them? Why? Why not? When does it become okay (i.e. when someone publishes them)? For instance--would it be okay if someone else RPed Melissa or Keelia somewhere I don't?

5) If you do not think #3 is okay--how is it different than #1? Why is it okay to write with professional author's characters and plots, but not other fanfic writers?

6) Same question for #4--why is it okay to RP/write fanfic about someone else's OC in a published work, but not a character created for RP or written in fic?

Thank you so so much!

But since some of you like my writing...?

I had the chance to do a guest post for the blog of one of my favorite independent musicians and it went live today. 'Tis about my 2010 Word of the Year "Release" and, should you be interested, you can find it here.

I'm back, in theory, but I've been having computer problems, and though I got a new shiny I'm having to tweak a few things to get it to set up on my wireless, etc. So, err...I'm physically back from vacation, but probably not so much back to RP for a few more days. I'll try and catch up as I can, but if there's anything important me or mine need to see, please link me here?

changehistory: (OOC - Mr. Monroe is busy)

Headed out of town first thing in the morning, and up to Seattle on vacation thru Sept 8. I'll have wifi for some of the time, and be around off and on, but not nearly as much as usual, on either LJ or Twitter.

Everyone be good and I'll catch y'all as I can.

changehistory: (OOC - Mr. Monroe is busy)
I know I've been frighteningly slow the last week, anyway, but letting y'all know that I'm going to be AFK all weekend, starting about 5PM tonight and running til late Monday night. Headed up to Oregon to FaerieWorlds, and will not have computer, let alone access.

I'll try to hit all my tags before I head out this evening, but otherwise will catch y'all when I get back.


(This goes for [ profile] thepainted_lady, [ profile] elementof_risk, [ profile] capableof_both and whomever else of mine is running around, too, obviously!)

Posted on Lydia's journal.

Yes, that's where the majority of my more diverse (aka, not just Heroes) muses play, at the moment.

Because this one has been spread out over 6 journals and Adam, Melissa and Lydia, at least, Tweet from it rather frequently, I thought I'd set out the basics of what's gone down and where everyone's at now, 'cause I've gotten a few, "..o.O?" from folks. :-) Yes, it's very AU.

This verse was created basically when three separate PSLs converged, because it occurred to us all that they fit together pretty well.

Adam - [ profile] changehistory (Twitter: @changehistory)
Peter - [ profile] hadtobeahero (No Twitter, the lazy bum)
Sylar - [ profile] heroslayer (Twitter: @selfnamedman)
Melissa - [ profile] capturedworlds (Twitter: @capturedworlds)
Samuel - [ profile] offering_hope (Twitter: @anofferofhope)
Lydia - [ profile] thepainted_lady (Twitter: @thepainted_lady)

Adam & Peter )

Sylar & Melissa )

Samuel & Lydia )

I think that's the highlights?

So, my show opens in 9 days, and we have load in and tech this weekend, and my parents will be here for the show next weekend. In addition, major plot starting in [ profile] hearts_andminds that we've been planning for months and which will probably take through mid-April, and which Mohinder, Adam and Lydia all have pretty big parts to play in. Plus, I've been a little neglectful over there of my other muses, and need to get everyone out and about and keep on top of things there.

So, I'll keep tagging things I have going, but my focus is very much going to be H&M and [ profile] thepathwechoose, and then into [ profile] recreating_eden to get things going there as they should be for a while, and catching up on prompts and some RP in my smaller 'verses as well. I don't like feeling out of touch/behind--but that means I'll be slower starting some stuff, and not as around in other 'verses/games, because I have other commitments.

Basically just a note to say I'm busy, and have a lot on my plate, and other obligations to meet, so if I'm not as randomly around for a while, or as there in one game or another, that's why. I'll work to find some sort of balance and try to figure out what that is, but right now I need to shift some attention to writing and people, games and muses I've neglected.

For those not following along on my personal Twitter--I just got back from urgent care for the migraine that won't break and all the ick that goes with that. Two shots later, the pain and nausea are easing, but, lo, shots from heaven do tend to have side effects--like supreme drowsy and loopiness.

Also--big push on rehearsals this week, and in other things, I'm having a Hell week (probably triggered the migraine of death) so--if I'm not around on Twitter, or tagging much or...doing much of anything, that's why. I'll try to poke at tags as I can, but--preemptively forgive any odd wording or spelling errors. Y'all know I'm generally pretty careful, but. Well, the room is spinning, y'know?
changehistory: (OOC - Mr. Monroe is busy)
Because I'm a pimping whore when it comes to my vids, and more people read this journal...

Samuel/Lydia fanvid, posted over on Lydia's journal. Go watch! :-)

1. Comment with a pairing or pairings. They can be het, slash, canon, crack, or ... muse/inanimate object, I don't care. [Okay, I care--I probably am not going to do muse/inanimate object very well. I'm just saying. ;-)]
2. I will create a ship mix for that pairing that will range from an EP with a minimum of 3 songs to a ... full mix, with upwards of 20 songs. It depends on how much music I can find/how inspired I get. [There may or may not be cover art depending on if I ever get home again to Photoshop & have time]
3. Fanmix meme makes no promises. By submitting your request, you give me permission to do whatever the hell I want with the muses and story. It does not have to affect any verses. Also, there's no guarantee I will make you a full mix, as I said. This does not reflect how much I love you/your muse, but how much the music I have matches up to the requests, yo. [Also--I just gave y'all 128 versions of "Hallelujah"--clearly feel my love]
4. For my own personal sanity, please limit yourself to two requests. Select 'verse if relevant! These can involve your muse, or others you know mine have interacted with in RP or canon.
5. Expect me to take forever to actually finish this--Session, the play, work in general even once we get out of Session--y'all know how my life is!
6. Have fun and profit.

Muses to choose from:

Adam Monroe (Heroes) [ profile] changehistory/[ profile] makemethe_hero
Mohinder Suresh (Heroes) [ profile] capableof_both
Lydia (Heroes) [ profile] thepainted_lady
Angela Shaw/Petrelli(Heroes) bb - [ profile] seemynightmares/ adult - [ profile] oncewasadreamer
Julian Sark (Alias) - [ profile] elementof_risk
Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries) - [ profile] prodigalsavior
Methos (Highlander) - [ profile] reallyoldguy/[ profile] goodtobeamyth
Byron (Historical/Highlander) - [ profile] the_corsair
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce (Buffy/Angel) - Any of the fucking 14 journals. *facepalms*
Surreal SaDiablo (Black Jewels) - [ profile] birhtrightgreen
Sawyer (Lost) - [ profile] dontspeakdstiny
Jack Harkness (Real one - Torchwood) - [ profile] anightngalesang
Melissa Talmadge (Original) - [ profile] capturedworlds
Aislinn (Original) - [ profile] alainn_aislinn
Devin (Original) - [ profile] killingsoftly
Alisha St. James (Original) - [ profile] lumieredetoiles

That's far from all of them, but I think that's all of them that have significant RP relationships anyone might want them for. If someone's not on the list that your muse has a relationship with and you want a fanmix/playlist, feel free to ask.

Just, fyi for folks--I've been cast as Stella in A Streetcar Named Desire, which means I'm going to be back in rehearsals and working on learning my lines often when I'm not. Plus, our governor just said he's calling a Special Session--I don't know what that's going to do to my workload, so.

There will be several nights a week I'm not home and online, and I might be busier at work instead of having time to tag as much as I'd like. If things slow down, that's why. RL just got all busy again.

At least one of the reasons is a good one!? :-D

OOC Post relating to game is here.

I need everyone still interested in the game to read and respond by the end of the week, please.
changehistory: (OOC - Mr. Monroe is busy)
[ profile] dontrightly_die folks: We have an OOC comm now, [ profile] drd_ooc. Don't ask me why we neglected to create one in the first place. It was Session. I was distracted. :-P

Post going up there sometime in the next hour or so.

[ profile] recreating_eden folks: look for a post in [ profile] eden_ooc today or tomorrow. The game has been quiet, and I'd like to get it moving again, but I need to know who is still interested and who is willing to play, and if people have lost interest that's cool, but let me know, because there are folks who have expressed interest in several taken characters, so if you're not going to play them/no longer wish to play them, it'd be nice to let someone else have a chance. :-)

/mod hat
changehistory: (OOC - Mr. Monroe is busy)
If anyone is interested, I have a fic auction thread here at [ profile] help_haiti. Adam or other Heroes fic is most definitely an option, but lots of other fandoms are on offer. :-)
