you're actually able to change what the "Author" field says even though your account name is something else. We generally just keep the badfic writer personas limited to the Badfic Games thread.

Another thing: a lot of people on this Board, myself included, are part of the LGBTQ+ community. I know you said you have nothing against those types of people, and I am sure you do not, but it does come across a little bit insensitive to hear so frequently how much uncanonical slash bothers you. Many of us have felt similarly about slash when we were younger, but many of us have come to enjoy slash pairings (canonical or otherwise) that we enjoy. Slash is not everyone's cup of tea, but reminding everyone constantly about how much you dislike it when it's not a canonical pairing (and canonical M/M and F/F pairings for a good amount of pre-2010s media is incredibly rare to find) shades into a sort of condemnation of the genre that can put other people on this Board on edge. I really hope, come Permission time, that your chiefest impression on the Permission Givers is not "that person who hates slash". I doubt it will give them much confidence that you are able to write missions in the spirit of the PPC.

In any case, thank you for the apology. I hope you have a fun Badfic Games! Please try not to take any of the badfics too seriously. ~Lily))
