((OOC: Please note, that being that I cannot get ahold of Chase or any of the board or other long-time members to get permission to use their characters, I chose to use my own characters in their place.
For the time being, Assistant Director Kirk McDouglas from the Philadelphia branch office is filling in for Director Devineaux, being that Chase is on a personal leave.
The board is at a conference in Bern, Switzerland, and Assistant Director McDouglas is handling what the board handles.
Doctor Sophie Conrad is at a medical conference in London. Doctor Linda Collen is filling in for Sophie.
If anyone wants to use these characters for their own stories, go ahead. If you want to expand on them, go ahead.))

((Also, this is the best I can do without talking things over with @Chase or anyone. Hope this helps somehow, somewhat, sometime.))

Throughout each department in the Agency, there are various gophers (trainee Agents) who transport time-sensitive information around when inter-office mail would be too slow (a vacuum-tube system, similar to a bank’s, was tried, and failed when scaling it up became much too complicated).
There are a team of lawyers (some under the full employ of the Agency, some from local firms) around ACME or on call at all times.
There are also liaisons between area law enforcement agencies and ACME; ACME has an Agent posted there, and they have an officer posted at ACME.

I have a few questions. 1) Is this a fanfiction? (Because people can use pre-existing versions of cannon characters, as well as characters they create, in fanfictions without asking permission). 2) Please explain the SOUL Contract. Is it just a creative element of your story? Or is your story a role-play, and is this your way of asking us to play with you? (Because it would be simpler to say it that way, too.)

S.O.U.L Contract (Yes, I edited it a bit to link to my copy of it, didn't touch the rest).
I consider what's on the TECS Wiki to be canon, though there is some leeway and creative license (?... is that the right word?) with how that info is used on here, to my knowledge.
Remember, I'm not the final word in anything... I have no say, at all in anything besides what I post. If a vote was held, and everyone decided I should leave, I will.
As far as this one, I've been working on this for a while... since I got here... was going to run it past @Chase, but you know that situation... if people don't want it here, it'll be gone.
I'm not trying to say 'it's this way or the highway' or anything... I try to keep my posts in the same universe that the major R.Ps are in... far as I know, I can't use Julie or anyone in anything without running it past you or whoever, so, because I can't get ahold of certain members, I came up with "temporary replacements" for them.
I have (unless I messed up) only brought one character (that would be Shirley) over from another story I'm working on... and that's with permission to adopt the story.

((IRL: Now that I have a desk again to work at, I've been working my way through long dormant stuff in my 'To Post' folder... I started the Hierarchy document before @Chase went M.I.A))

I Guess, long term... it'd be great if we could all get together on a bigger story like the site used to.

I understand now, Jonny and the character Shirley [ not based on the 1992 version of WITWICS? as a travel agent of the Employee Travel Agency, I don't own the game whatsoever], well you should have asked me first I'm the one who pick the name of the receptionist myself and I'm worried about any of the non-canon characters who are discriminated against anyone with a disability working for ACME.

I'm not against you or your stories next time ask anyone who create more than just your own non-canon characters.

I'm so sorry I was surprised, shocked and appalled that's all.

Thanks for your comment, Jon. That is good to know.

I'm sure we can all agree that one of the most difficult things in thinking up names for characters in a fan-fiction, whether a story includes cannon characters or not, is coming up with a good name, and maybe a tiny bit of backstory for them.

So, Jade, maybe the fact that you and Jon have both come up with a similar character named Shirley, is just a coincidence. Jon has already assured us that he knows he can't use characters like you (or any character you make up) or Lucy or I without our permission.

As far as the characters themselves, all I really see, is a name, and a brief, yet detailed description that they will play in Jon's story. I really don't see anything that makes me think that any of them would discriminate against an ACME agent that had any kind of disability; and if ACME were a real place, I'm sure that would not be allowed, either. We all have something good to contribute, here. 🙂

Thank you, Julie, hopefully it makes a difference.
