What Is This?

PPC: The Lost Tales is a compendium of Protectors of the Plot Continuum writings which would otherwise be consigned to a dark and dreary twilight existence in oblivion or the halls of Mandos the Internet Archive. Rejoice and be merry that they yet live!

If you’re looking for the PPC community, come say hello at the PPC Posting Board. We’re alive and kicking, and we’d love to meet you!

If you’re really confused and want more information, try the PPC Wiki.

If you were looking for Pay Per Click, we cannot help you. Sorry!

Protectors of the Plot Continuum was created by Jay and Acacia. All works archived here belong to their authors.

The Celtic knot dividers and buttons are freeware from Aon Celtic Art. Various free stock images are used with permission from artists at deviantART.com.

Heads up: This is an archive of old works. As such, we can’t promise they are up to our current standards of quality or content. (Let’s face it, a lot of them definitely aren’t.) You may encounter language or sentiments the PPC community no longer condones, and which you may find to be objectionable.

Most content would be rated Teen/PG-13, but the works generally are not rated and do not contain content warnings.

The inclusion of a work in the archive does not represent an endorsement of its content, only that it is part of PPC history, spots and all. Rather than hide the mistakes of the past, we acknowledge them, apologize, and promise to do better in the present.

Please share any questions or concerns you have on the PPC Posting Board.

Rehosted Spin-offs

This table is sortable, and by default is listed by agent name. Agents are listed in alphabetical order except in cases where one is clearly the lead character. Spin-offs are named by title when possible; if there is no title, they’re called by the agents’ response center; if no RC number is given, they’re called by the agents’ names. Authors are listed in alphabetical order regardless of who wrote which agent.
