    Great! I have the answer I was hoping for. I'm relieved that I can continue in the same vein I was in. And just a bit about the story; Roland mentions that the remaining gunslingers (I presume those that were not at Jericho Hill ) went on the quest for the Dark Tower and something is mentioned about the rest of these dying, giving up, etc and Roland ending up as the last one. The protagonist of this story is one of these gunslingers. (probably quite a popular topic for DT fanfic but I hope I can make it somewhat original and Stephen Kingish...it'll certainly be a horror story at any rate)

    Sounds great. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

    I'm not too sure what would make fan fiction illegal as long as A.) You're not taking credit for the author's properties and B.) You're not making any money off of it (I.E. like those bootleg Harry Potter books).

    Anyway, I had two stories that I haven't written yet but I was playing around with in my head. (DT7 Spoiler, just to be safe)
    Spoiler:
    One was about Walter Padick as a child in Delain (which King only briefly alluded to in the final book),
    and the other was about Marten and Gabrielle's last conversation. Since they both follow established characters, would that not be allowed? Would posting a link to an FF.net story be allowed?

    Sorry, but all of those characters--except possibly Gabrielle--are much too delineated to allow for legal fanfic. Likewise, if it is not something that you could post here within the rules, we wouldn't allow linking to it. Now if it is a fanfic piece that is within the bounds of our guidelines, then there would really be no problem posting the link, although I don't see why you wouldn't just repost the story here.

    Just checking: I'd like to write something about how it feels when I step into All-World. No characters, no place names, nothing really but All-World itself and my expressions. Would it be safe to post here?

    Well, the directors might possibly say I'm wrong, but my opinion is that that's perfectly safe.

    Let's give it a try - I double dog dare myself.
    I'm going to finish this one soon and post it here. Thanks, Brice!

    No problem, but please wait till one of the directors says it's ok it to actually post it. I'd hate for you to listen to me and then find out I was wrong. Most likely one of them will be around shortly anyhow.

    I think that would be great Lily. If it's just your impressions on a journey to All World I can't see how it could hurt and also can't wait to read it.

    Ok, I am confused.

    We are not allowed to use well-defined characters in stories, but in poems it is alright?

    If that is the case, why can't I right a story in iambic pentameter?

    I am not trying to be a tool, I really want to know.

    Also, please don't think I'm being a jerk, but what is the inherent difference between discussing ideas and writing them? By this I mean.... what if I said I thought the series should end with Roland turning into Hello Kitty. It is ok to state that in a thread, but not write it as a story? If I thought I knew what Hello Kitty Roland would say, can I post it in a thread? If so, why not as a story?

    We're going to get Aaron (Director who handles this) to answer your questions as soon as possible doh. No reason to be shy about asking them, that's why we're here.

    So after taking a brief look around the forums, I'm not sure where an eventual thread about a song that takes inspiration from the Dark Tower should go. Poetry maybe? Please advise!
