Apologies if I put this in the wrong category 0_0’ but I didn’t know which category to ask this.
From what I meant in the question was can I use real characters from things like TV shows as characters for my story?
I’ve been wanting to make an AU (Alternate Universe) for the characters but I wasn’t sure if it’d be a good idea or give me any reads since they’re not original characters.
The story will be original of course but just the characters aren’t. I just want feedback on what you people prefer, mind, or don’t mind when it comes to using existing characters. I don’t want to work very hard on a story but have people dismissing the story once they read it. Thanks!
