In this episode, the two Matts do yet another skit about yet another type of story cooking as if it hasn't gotten old yet, define a super-specific word that we'd like our audience to use, test how far we can push the content without having to use the "explicit" tag, and talk about original character fanfics as well as a little bit about new-setting-same-character fics. What kinds of characters should fanfic writers put into existing stories? How can they make these characters feel like they fit? How much new stuff can you add, and how much old? When will Matt David ever work at any of Gaston Crayon de Papier's shops? We discuss it all, as existing characters in an existing work that is this podcast, and talk about Star Trek, Star Wars, Bionicle (again) and Power Rangers (again).
