May I add the roleplaying/strategy game Game Of Thrones Ascent where the Player Character is a self-made noble appointed by King Robert Baratheon?

I didn't see anything about it on the forum, so I guess it was just somebody deciding that profanity was a no-no and taking it upon themselves to get rid of it, but whoever did it put up some hilarious results, like censoring the word "bastards," censoring the word "hell" in an entry about the Divine Comedy, and one instance of "Philip K. !@#$%."

Changing the latter two, leaving everything else just in case this is some new policy and I just completely missed it. It probably isn't that big a deal anyway, aside from being a bit stupid-looking.

Topic: Discussion of fan fiction trends in different countries... Or something.

Interestingly, in Russia use of Self-Inserts, crossovers with Earth as we know it (aka someone from our world SUDDENLY! appears in a fictional one) or O Cs from their original fiction is rather prevalent both in original fiction and in fan fiction, taking place in different forms from Reincarnation (Dreaming of Sunshine style) to Afterlife gone Weird (they do die, but do not become alive again - happens in Bleach and/or Naruto fanfiction most often) to Freak Accident (aka unstable portal) and more.

In comparison, most fan fics by English-speaking authors prefer to operate with canon characters, crossover characters, and O Cs native to the universe in question, as viewpoint characters.

One way of looking at this is that Russians tend to live their stories vicariously, while occidental writers tend to come with a more puzzle-piece view.

Why is there a big ol' "No examples" warning, yet the page is full of them?

Just thought like to mention a page I found concerning this topic:

http://www.bast-enterprises.de/ranma/MarySue.html

It has a very interesting commentary about how self insertion isn't automatically bad... Perhaps we could integrate some of the ideas into the main page?
