The author does not claim any rights to any existing franchise/series, its characters, or its copyright. Franchises featured on this website are the intellectual property of their respective owners. The contents (role-plays, fan fiction, GIFs, pictures, texts, etc.) on this website were created solely for the purpose of personal entertainment; the author does not make any profit from it.
The characters featured in role-plays are a work of fiction. Although many of the historical places, characters, and events in the threads are real, some characteristics have been changed to fit the plot. These are all products of the author's imagination, or are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual events or locales, or any persons living or dead, is entirely coincidental.
Other publicly recognizable characters, settings, etc. not listed in the role-plays are the property of their respective owners. The original characters from the Crime & Beauty series are the property of the author. The author is in no way associated with the owners, creators, or producers of any previously copyrighted material. No copyright infringement is intended.
The author also does not claim copyright to any non-copyrighted original characters present in role-playing fiction. The likeness of any existing role-playing characters has been explicitly expressed in the respective pages of the author's original characters, under the 'muse inspirations' descriptions. These property owners have granted permission to the author to fashion their characters' likeness after their property. All other resemblances are entirely coincidental—on the basis of tropes, clichés, stock characters/archetypes, and other such literary devices—that are commonly present in many characters throughout all forms of media.
In other words: I am not stealing your head-canons and making money off them, nor am I stealing word-for-word every single aspect that makes your Original Character, yours. Any claims of stolen property on the subject of generic head-canons (literary devices commonly found in more than one character in more than one media, e.g.: your character is a manipulative bastard, and my OCs exhibit such traits as well) are entirely dismissed. For those that are already my writing partners: it is inevitable that inspiration will come from your writing. As such, I will ask your permission to use your characters' likeness in my novels, and tweak them to make them my own. Writing partners who have made a significant contribution to the building of my novels will also get a special mention in my dedication pages!
