Somewhere, off in the vast reserves of the many worlds... universes... whatever they are, several characters have been unceremoniously wrenched from their own continuity and dropped into modern-day Earth, with the Internet. Somewhere else on a more domestic locale (that is, Earth itself), a bunch of characters joined an Internet forum. Thus was born Charchat, and it's all downhill from there.
Charchat is a ZetaBoards roleplay forum with a twist: you join as your character, and you post as your character, as if they were literally on a chat board. (There's OOC chat too, of course.) As one can expect, this spawns all of the hilarity and drama that a real forum can make.
While the original forum has been deleted, Charchat can be viewed via Wayback Machine here.
Charchat contains examples of:
- Actual Pacifist: Shelby is vocal about her aversion to violence and her opposition to those who make use of it. This actually just ends up revealing her as fickle, since her best friends are a pair of murdering vigilantes.
- Audience? What Audience?: Just about everybody else but Anakin Skywalker himself seems to either be well-versed in, or is at least aware, of the Star Wars fandom. Any mentions of Darth Vader, or anything else canon that has yet to happen to him, Anakin just reacts with total confusion.
- Deliberately Cute Child: Miharu is very much aware of his own cuteness and uses it to his advantage or to torment others.
- Dude, Where's My Respect?:
- Speedy, who wants to be treated like a hero and not a sidekick.
- This also accounts for Sherlock when people mock his work, despite the fact it's been used to help thousands and solve the worst of crimes.
- Expressive Mask: Robin's mask moves and shapes with his expression.
- Odd Friendship: Sharon and Sherlock. She considers him her best friend despite everything people say and think, and finds him charming.
- Pun: Any sort of group hugging activity involving Rai (the roleplayer) will officially be called a 'glomp sandwich on Rai'.
- Surrounded by Idiots: Ciel uses this exact wording in a survey:Q: Have you ever won an award?
A: Award for being surrounded by idiots? I should.
