So I was talking to grac, and somehow this came up in our conversation.
[9:48:09 PM] Estrea: I still lay claim to the invention of Ninja!Berryz
[9:48:30 PM] Grac: we should have a H!P Fanon Patent Office
[9:48:39 PM] Estrea: I also claim Emo!Ai
...and it goes on. Yes. Given how lively and active our fanficdom is, I figured people should get justifiable credit for inventing certain fads. Like I said, I most certainly lay claim on Emo!Ai.
Well, at least I do on JPHiP. People are welcome to refute this if they can find earlier examples of Emo!Ai in other fics elsewhere and post here.
That's what this Patent Office is for. File your claims people! Pimp your achievements! If your claims are unchallenged and supported, I'll put them up on the Roll of Honour on this first post.
Disclaimer: This thread is merely for fun and bragging rights. No hard feelings anyone! We just want to give recognition to the people who invented fanon rules! Who first wrote a pairing? Who lays claim on a particular characterization? Why are certain girls written the way they are? Who started certain fads? It never ends! Let's put our history back together, people! Procedure for filing claims
1) State claim. You can also state claims for other people if you know something we don't.
2) Provide examples and link them if possible.
3) Let the people validate it! Once you have at least 3 people in support, we'll put it as official unless someone challenges the claim and provides evidence to contest for it.
You can also challenge claims for others as long as you have supporting evidence.
4) Thanking a post with a claim on it also counts as a gesture of support. So you lurkers who don't post can still participate! Claimable Things
1) Pairings (first written etc)
2) Particular characterization (like my Emo!Ai, or Pedo!Sayu for example...who came up with Pedo!Sayu anyway? Real!Sayu?
3) H!P-specific tropes (like Yossi Is A Pimp, Reina Is Tsundere, NAKAZAWA IS GOD etc...)
4) <insert others here> -- will come up with more as we go. Work in progress, yo. Just post it and we'll process it.
TBH, anything goes.
Oh and let's get the ball rolling with my own claims. I claim Emo!Ai (probably this
), and First 9th Gen Fic (see this
). I also claim RihoKanon the pairing(this
Come one, come all, to the Fanon Patent Office! Let's get the party started.
