This page on the Wiki should show you what I'm talking about: DoI reports are usually fairly brief 'story' sections, followed by a 'record' of the kind I think you're describing. I'm a big fan. :)
As stories set in the PPC, they do currently require permission to write, but... hmm.
Any other Permission Givers, how do you feel about a specific exception regarding intel reports? Something like 'Permission is not required for Intelligence reports, provided that a) the narrative section takes place only in the badfic (not in HQ), and b) they are hosted on the PPC Wiki'?
The former provision should keep writers who don't know the PPC too well from making egregious mistakes, and the latter means, firstly, that they're extremely easy for the writer to edit if they're informed of a mistake, and secondly, that if someone starts abusing this power the stories can be taken down by the community.
I think this is a good idea, because it would provide a non-RP PPC writing opportunity for people who haven't yet gained Permission. I think that letting newbies write for the PPC in some way might well increase length of stay, likelihood of getting Permission, and stories written if they do. I think, given that Spies don't interact with the story very much, and the narrative section is intentionally short, this could be a good way to ease people in.
As an alternative, if there are unresolvable concerns with this: how about 'intel reports from outside'? Architeuthis mentions that she got her start by sending in a report to the PPC; people could write Intelligence-style reports where the 'narrative' section is of their prospective agent reading a fic, not being in it at all. If their 'help' leads to the Marquis extending a job offer [on the receipt of permission], well, so much the better. :)
