After seeing Watchmen, a question was raised about what happens when a fandom includes real people and we have a "no real people" rule. In Watchmen, which is an AU universe, President Nixon is a character. By our rule, you can't write anything about him. But, he's a key character. So the discussion concluded with us having this new idea for situations like this: If the fandom itself includes a real person, then the rule will be bent for this exception. HOWEVER, this is ONLY in an instance where that person makes a regular appearance in the original material. We're counting on you guys to not abuse this rule. Thank you!
