To: All Assassination and Reconnaissance Departments
From: The Sunflower Official
Please find enclosed the current official list of basic offenses against Canon for which fan-written characters in your departments may be charged with disrupting the Continuum. As all agents are to a certain extent autonomous while in the field, amplification of these rudimentary charges is encouraged as long as it does not violate Canon Protection Initiative policy. It is noted that the list is not exhaustive and is subject to further revision. To nominate a frequent or egregious offense for inclusion on the list, simply contact the Department of Records, Accounting, and Tabulation (DRAT). Please do not ask for a raise while doing so.

1.10. Stealing lines
1.11. Causing an original character to join the First Circle

Mini-Lorns: mini-Lorns are the Official Black Jewels Fanfiction University's version of OFUM's mini-Balrogs. They are approximately two to two and a half feet high (although Titan is three feet, as she can’t decide between her name-sake, Titian, or an actual Titan) and, as a detailed description of Lorn was never given, decided to be black with wings. (Yes, OBFU and the PPC realize that his scales are translucent when removed from his body, but there is no telling what color his skin is.) The mini-Lorns tend to take some aspect of their name-sake: for instance, all of Daemon’s mini-Lorns would quite cheerfully kill Dorothea’s, and just as cheerfully have paired off with Jaenelle’s minis.

The PPC Charge List was created by NenyaQuende, also known as Agent Nenya Gabriel of the PPC, Response Centre #1004, and was designed for Lord of the Rings fan fiction. This version, designed for the Bishopverse PPC, was created by Miss K and Lady Vesica.
