Restricted Fandoms

These are fandoms that the authors/creators have expressly stated they do not want fanfiction (and by extension, roleplays) created of their work.

Flat out Denied

Because those works are copyrighted to them, they are legally entitled to refuse anyone else to be able to use their works and they do not have to tolerate fanfiction/roleplay at all. And given that they have expressly stated that they do not want fanfiction/roleplay made of their work people cannot simply put up a disclaimer stating they don't own the work nor can they credit the author/creator and expect that to be acceptable.

Therefore to prevent any potential issues surrounding Terms of Service offences, roleplays based off authors/creators listed in this section are not permitted under any circumstances.
