Let's say for your own character or you write a fic (something I've been considering) but you want to use another person's character. What's the general, uh, etiquette for that. Should I ask permission before hand? Should I just use knowing that we've sort of just let our characters be on display anyway?

It's usually nice to ask the person, but you don't have to. But it's nice, and it guarantees that they'll read it to see their character once it's done. I don't know why they'd say no unless they aren't on the site any more, in which case just do what you like and don't feel like you have to wait for a response to start writing.

Asking is definitely a nice touch, and make sure you give a character that someone worked hard on a bit of respect. It's fine if you have a character get beat in a fight or something, as long as it's nothing that makes them look like crap.

I never ask. Once it's out here it's fair game unless you're planning something crazy for the character, then I would give them a heads up.
