It's not necessarily a question about auditioning, but how do your headcanons work? Like for things that are canon in your universe, do you guys have to discuss it altogether before continuing? And how do us, who audition, go about that? Could we write anything even if it's the complete opposite of your canon? Sorry if this is confusing in any way and thank you in advance!
Hi there! I hope you don’t mind me answering this publicly in case anyone else had a similar question :)
When it comes to bigger plotlines like the Valentine’s Day Mavin series which might be spread over multiple posts, the people involved would discuss how it played out in advance, either privately or in our group Discord server so the rest of us could have some input. If it affected every character then the same idea would apply just to make sure that everyone knows where they stand and how to play their part.
With smaller headcanons/events I think it’s okay to have some creative freedom - when we first started writing Ray’s Walmart adventure, for example, I didn’t clear the bet idea with Dave before we started but they were happy to go along with it.
That said, I don’t think we necessarily have one overarching ‘canon’ series of events? We write these little snapshots of the crew’s lives but we wouldn’t necessarily limit what we can or can’t write based on old chats, if that makes sense?
It’s the same for the shippy stuff - some people prefer to just read the ‘gen’ posts so they don’t take our Shippy Sunday posts as canon, which is totally okay!
As for your audition question, I think it’s safe to say that if you have a particular plot idea for one of your chats you’re welcome to include it and if anyone has a problem with it they’ll raise it privately.
Sorry this answer got away from me a little but I hope what I’ve said makes sense! If any of the other mods have something to add they’ll reblog this post :)

EDIT: A little input from our lovely Jack, Mod M:
#basically this :) #our canon is very scattered #and some headcanons and running gags develop over time #but they’re mostly character specific if that makes sense? #like how geoff always adds staches to his smileys
