Hello everyone, and welcome to DC Re-Created! This is a brand new Fan-Fiction group created by @maccyd, @themanintheshoe, and myself, where you get to Re-Create anything you want about all your favorite DC characters! At the time of this post, we already have the first issues of 3 series up-- Batman #1, Superman #1, and The Flash #1! In addition, you can check out our DCRC library and our DCRC Character List.

Rules:

1: Re-Creation

We're a lot less strict about how much you change the characters than the previous DC Re-Invented (And DC Re-Imagined, before that). As a writer for DCRC, you have complete creative freedom over your characters. For example, if you were writing Batman for example, you could make it so Bruce's parents were shot, but he was cursed by a mystical Bat-demon and turned into a living shadow later on. Or you can make him just the way he is today, but Re-Create his villains, supporting characters, etc. It's up to you! Just don't go overboard with canon continuity and story arcs. We're creating our own universe, not creating our own stories for N52 or Pre-52.

2: Continuity/Characters in Multiple Series

Characters can appear in any number of series, and even have multiple series based solely around one them. However, if you want to have a character that's already being written appear in your series, you're going to have to talk with the other writer in either our DCRC Writer Discussion PM or your own, separate PM to ask for permission and how your story can fit into continuity. Continuity does matter. For example, if Aquaman was in Atlantis during the time your pitched story about Green Lantern with an Aquaman cameo takes place, it'd not be allowed. There's several ways to bypass this (have it be set a month or so in the past, have the problem be resolved the next issue, etc.), but keep it in mind if you're writing for DCRC.

3: Original Characters Are Allowed

While titles should be focusing around established DC characters or teams, Original Characters are completely allowed.

4: Titles Per Person

DCRC writers are allowed to have as many titles as they want, as long as their titles are regularly. We don't want months of waiting between issues because a writer has too many titles.

Library and Character List

The DCRC Library and the DCRC Character List are both up. If you join DCRC, it's necessary to contact me, @maccyd or @themanintheshoe before you post a new issue so we can add it to the library. You'll also have to tell us each character in use so we can add it to the Character List.

Interested in joining? All you have to do is post your interest here, along with the series you wish to write and a tag to me, @maccyd, or @themanintheshoe. If you have any questions, feel free to send a PM or ask right here. If you sign up, you'll be added to the DCRC Writer Discussion PM. Remember, only 3 titles are currently taken at the time of this post, so everything else is up for grabs. Thanks for reading, and I hope you decide to join us at DCRC!

@rulerofthisuniverse: I'm definitely interested, but I'm still unsure which character I want to write. I'm currently thinking of doing someone like deathstroke or the Question. Is that okay with you?

@dngn4774: Both are available. Vic Sage did get mentioned in Batman #1, but all that was shown was that he was a news reporter, like normal canon. If you wanted to change that in your Re-Creation of him, I could always just change that reporter's name to Jack Ryder or something. :)

@rulerofthisuniverse: Is there a certain amount of posts needed to start an ongoing series with you? I had to create a new account due to I forgetting my past info with an old email attached.

@dr_harlequin: Would she be attached to the Joker or not? You're in either way, but I'm just wondering because I'm writing Batman. :)

#14 Edited by Dr_Harlequin (485 posts) - - Show Bio

@rulerofthisuniverse: If I were, I might mostly write her with a new supporting cast, but I was thinking of a little Joker/Batman/Ivy in there for a bit.

#15 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (6364 posts) - - Show Bio

@dr_harlequin: Ok, because I was thinking of introducing the Joker in my second arc of Batman. Would it be possible for you to go 4 issues before the Joker shows up?

#16 Edited by Dr_Harlequin (485 posts) - - Show Bio

@rulerofthisuniverse: I might be able to. I was thinking about adding something new to her past before she meets the Joker. But it depends on how long it can be and how I start her story if I even do it from the bottom up.

#17 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (6364 posts) - - Show Bio

@dr_harlequin: I'll PM you to discuss the continuity of that. Anyway, you're in! I'll go add you to the Writers Discussion.

Basically, I've been away for a long time and haven't thought to return to the Fan Fic forum, but I saw this and just had to come back, I'd love to join, I'm thinking for one of the following characters: Ted Kord, Jack Ryder, Plastic Man or The Question. I know Vic is open but are any others?

#19 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (6364 posts) - - Show Bio

@thejester: They're all open, to the best of my knowledge. batkevin74 is writing Booster Gold, so you'd have to ask him if Ted Kord is going to appear.

Wow, this just exploded. I didn't think so many would join so quickly. Fantastic!

#24 Posted by TommytheHitman (3393 posts) - - Show Bio

Can I write Green Arrow?

#25 Posted by TheManInTheShoe (3878 posts) - - Show Bio

@tommythehitman: You are welcome to join. But I think doonstroke was planning on writing either GL or GA. Ask him what he's planning.

If Superboy's free then I could write up a one-shot or mini-series.

@awesam: Sure, he's available. Just hang on until @rulerofthisuniverse gets back and he'll add you to the PM and we can discuss it further.

#33 Posted by TommytheHitman (3393 posts) - - Show Bio

I would recommend posting a list of what titles are currently being written by what writer. Just so people know who's on the table.

@rulerofthisuniverse: Could I write for the best team in DC...

THE LEGION OF SUBSTITUTE HEROES!

Featuring the always great cast of: Color Kid, Chlorophyll Kid, Night Girl, Stone Boy, Polar Boy, Stone Boy, Fire Lad and... some other characters no one really knows about.

#35 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (6364 posts) - - Show Bio

@awesam: Sure! You'll have to discuss continuity with Maccyd (who's writing Superman), though.

I'll be writing a Constantine mini-series. Disregard the Superboy one.

@tommythehitman: Ok, sure. So far we have:

Currently written series: Batman, Superman, The Flash, Firestorm.

Currently taken series: Harley Quinn, Booster Gold, Deathstroke, Plastic-Man, Constantine, Legion of Substitute Heroes.

Currently reserved series: Green Lantern, Green Arrow.

Also, are you going to do that Green Arrow series you mentioned in the library, or no? Because someone wants to do either that or Green Lantern.

@rulerofthisuniverse: Could I join up for Cassandra Cain or Calvin Rose? I'd probably focus mostly on training and origins with Cassie, so there wouldn't be any conflicts with your Batman. I'm honestly not sure what I'd do with Calvin though.

#44 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (6364 posts) - - Show Bio

@mitran: Sounds good. Would you like to do just one or both?

#45 Posted by JetiiMitra (8798 posts) - - Show Bio
#46 Edited by RulerOfThisUniverse (6364 posts) - - Show Bio

@mitran: Sure. We'll have to talk about the continuity of both, though. I'll add you to the PM.
