I see you're the reasoning. While I don't mind people interacting with canon characters, it should be limited. Stories like that that try to add extra backstory are completely unnecessary. Having them be an ally or mission giver is pretty cool, but that should only be reserved for having them maintain their canon place instead of putting them elsewhere. Example: Having Trevor do things in Liberty City.
With that being said, is "After The Dark Scene" yours? I'm asking because I like some of the characters and was wondering if I could have Albert briefly work with a protagonist I have in mind. The events would take place mid-2012 in Los Santos.
Exactly, my stance on canon is similar in the sense that you can have them appear if its plausible but you should have to divert canon to fit your fanon like TREVOR AND TOMMY VERCETTI TEAM UP AND KILLED CLAUDE (an actual project I remember from this Wikia's shameful past) I use canonical chars myself but don't RELY on them to write, just use them as flavor.
The After Dark Scene, and most of my projects, I like to see as 'open source' and free to work and edit by others within reason. You can use anything I make in your own projects and edit some of mine if you'd like, but I like to have a little creative control sometimes (like don't kill my characters or make them do something out of character etc).
Heres a tip for writing Albert: he's an insufferable hipster who thinks himself a philosopher but is really pretentious and absurd. Luckily for you, TADS is set in 2013, so Albert is free for fanon in 2012 and needs some backstory anyways. Essential reading: Pulp Friction
P.S If yall wanna collab sometime just hit me up and we'll see, I don't have much free time but I can do a bit of writing here and there.
Sounds good to me, I figured Albert was like that because I spent some time reading his quotes and imagined he could think of a rebuttal to any statement that offended his lifestyle. I'm going to try an use his journalist occupation, but he's mostly going to be assisting the criminal protagonist with some theft. I kind of see him being loosely affiliated with said protagonist's boss as an informant.
Overall, I'm alright with most of the content on here, but there's a couple pages that seem out of place. I see the reason they are kept though, but this one just confuses me: Vladmir G. Demmir.
Anyways, I will look into using some of your ideas because I enjoy the realistic characters and storyline, something I lean more towards opposed to exaggerations. it reminds me of GTA V. Also, I'm glad we're clear on the role of GTA canon on this site, otherwise, it would be a complete mess of real canon characters being used in any scenario under the sun.
Hey, speaking of inactive users, do you think Undead Hero will ever finish Micheal Albright or GTA: Rush for that matter? I'm not saying that to be offensive, but I was wondering if I could use them or something. I've tried reaching out to him about "adopting" the characters, but unfortunately, I probably won't get a response.
They more than likely are never coming back anytime soon so adopt them if you want, but I suggest adding to them and not removing or otherwise rewriting portions of the original article into something non-genuine or character wise.
Sorry to hear about that mate! That makes two of us if that's the case since my day at college yesterday was just plain awful filled with mistakes and noisy outcomes!
I've been recovering in the meantime with a nice long rest, and taking the spare time to sort out the finishing touches to my fictitious crime story that relates to the 1983 Al Pacino crime film Scarface and the Grand Theft Auto videogame series!
Speaking of which, Chris6d told me to speak to you regarding the possibilities of me creating a page of my fictitious crime story that partly relates to the plot in GTA: Vice City and the events within GTA Online!
The main rule of this wikia is the use of Canon content in Fanon content is prohibited. Be very careful not to change the actual history and what happens within the game and there shouldn't be any problem with your content. We encourage originality rather than using canon as a starting point since we don't want CJ vs Lamar Davis for an example.
Good luck writing your stuff. I'll be looking through sometimes to see your progress.
The Criminal Mastermind is basically a fictitious adaptation of the 1983 crime film Scarface and the 2002 video-game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City that often relates the story to GTA: Online in a way how the protagonist wants his story to run in anyway they deem it to.
In addition, the events of the story first occur in 2013 - say between six months or a year after Grand Theft Auto V - and would slowly progress onto 2017 as it's titular protagonist - Nicholas Hough - rises to power within the criminal underworld. The story ends in 2018 that sets the stage for the events of Liberty.
To conclude this description, The Criminal Mastermind actually serves as the prequel of Liberty - with Nicholas Hough serving as the main antagonist in the original part.
The list of protagonists involved in TCM story - Trevor Phillips + Tommy Vercetti + possibly Luis Lopez - play a supporting yet imperative role within Nicholas' coup, but none will interact with each other nor will they be killed as it would most likely compromise both my story and the GTA canon universe. In fact, TCM isn't simply included in the GTA canon universe as that's more established within my own fictitious franchising universe!
However, TCM was something I thought that could partly relate to Grand Theft Auto by including a set of characters for the purpose of cementing the criminal organizations into associating with Nicholas' own crime syndicate to see what the outcome becomes for the story's development!
Loopiz is the owner of the article. I suggest reaching out first before you edit because the user is very protective of their fanon, however, they have been inactive since October. Good luck and good writing!
I want to make a Fanon called Gta The Chinese Connection. However I want to use a sorta canon character called Huang Lee. I won’t make any changes,as he will only be a mission boss that won’t die. I also wanna use the Need for speed character Ryo Wantanabe as the Main Protagonist. I know canon characters aren’t allowed but, I promise no changes will happen. Please consider and thank you in advance
I see no problems with your request. Just please stick to your words, let canon lie, and we should be fine. I'll pop in once and a while and see how your progress is, seeing as how you are using canonical characters.
