More like the Fan Fiction forum.
Why do they call it fan fiction anyway? That implies that the canonical material is non-fiction.
Is there really a big difference between fan material and canonical material, I mean, other than budget and average quality level? They're both equally 'fictitious', they're both equally just some person's interpretation of the same universe.
Anyway, I wouldn't want main characters from other series to be part of the main cast of a new series. I'd want a totally new cast, and then it'd be fun to see old characters make guest appearances now and then.
