Welcome ladies, gentlemen, and well-respected individuals of other alignments… to the DCUniverse Universe (DCW for short) bullpen! Pull up a chair, help yourself to refreshments, and settle in. In here, there’s room for all!
This is a collaborative project encompassing DC’s entire cast of characters. Here, we discuss our own stories and plan out the direction of the universe. We’re going to mostly focus on having writers contribute ongoing series on a regular basis, although limited series (with a clear start and finish over a smaller timeframe) are allowed.
- Each writer will pick a character they want to write. These will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.
- If someone has taken a character you wish to use, or if you wish to borrow a character attached to another character’s mythology that is currently being written, ask the writer of said character.
- When you sign on to join, discuss your plans for your character very broadly. Allow us to know where the character starts, and where he/she finishes up in your next storyline so that we can plan crossovers. Once you have a new pitch/script for any given arc, direct message them to the editors— @mysterious_stranger, @BatJamags and @hopeandlegos— for review.
- Events will be co-written by at least two writers. They are meant to be collaborative experiences, so please act accordingly.
- While discussing here, please make use of spoiler tags! If they are general spoiler tags, please designate your target audience as “Writers”. If they are for a specific person regarding their character, tag them.
- Do not negate past events in this universe.
- Do NOT discourage other writers in any capacity.
Effective immediately, we will be discussing characters that we want to write and setting up a timeline of events in the universe to start working around.
If you wish to join, please let me know! All are welcome here. Happy writing!
New Spreadsheet of Planned Titles!
- This can be edited by anyone. If any information about a title you are writing is incomplete or incorrect, please fix it yourself.
- We are trying to organize by release date and then alphabetically by title for each date. Please try to keep the list in order.
- We are switching to one editor per title. Please check here to see who your editor is. This may change after April’s releases are over.
CURRENT PROPOSED POSTING SYSTEM
- Directory. This will be posted by the editors and contain a list of links to all of the…
- Tables of Contents. The authors of each series will post one of these for each series they’re writing. It should contain a link “up” to the directory, and links “down” to every issue in that particular series.
- Issues. The authors of each series will post each issue as a separate topic. These topics should include links to the table of contents.
This way, you can hop between issues and series easily.
