Don't adventures ever have an end? I suppose not. Someone else always has to carry on the story.
Bilbo Baggins, The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

This is a very brief history of the PPC, Real World and in-universe, designed to hopefully make it easier for people to find things in order. If something is missing, please add it. If something is not explained, please fix it.

There is no Part Two. Part Two is created every day by you, the PPC Boarders.

19 December - Release of The Fellowship of the Ring in Theaters Edit

This, the first in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, started an event sometimes called the Badfic Explosion. This caused many changes in the PPC. Such as the thing being invented in the first place.

2002 Edit

The Original Series Edit

In early 2002, Jay Thorntree was partnered with Acacia Byrd in the Department of Mary-Sues. They became famous for having the largest body of missions ever recorded at the time. Unfortunately, Acacia retired in mid-2003 for sanity reasons, and Jay soon followed.

18 December - Release of The Two Towers in Theaters Edit

The second Lord of the Rings film is seen by millions of Suethors. Tolkien purists cry in public. The Badfic Explosion continues.

2003 Edit

Early year - The Invention of Bleeprin Edit

At the Hogwarts Fanfiction Academy, with the help of the mini-Aragogs, Meir Brin and TZA came up with Bleeprin, quite possibly the most revolutionary substance ever to hit the PPC. It is due to the introduction of Bleeprin and its derivatives that the Geranium left his position as the Head of Fictional Psychology, leaving the Kudzu Vine in charge. This is also the approximate time that FicPsych began handling agent care as well as canon care.

2004 Edit

The Oxford 2004 PPC Gathering Edit

This was the first-ever PPC Gathering, notable for being in Oxford, the site of J.R.R. Tolkien's grave. The Gathering's visit to Tolkien's grave caused a bit of a problem for HQ when their Canon Love caused him to stop spinning in it.

For April Fool's Day 2013, Huinesoron edited the Board's code so that it would appear white on black instead of the usual black on white, with a note at the top about how the Board seemed to have blacked out. This escalated into a series of stories about a power outage in Headquarters, starting with Lily Winterwood's story "Plotholes and Meatloaf and Angels, Oh My!"

November - The Wiki Plagiarism Incident Edit

On 16 November, Neshomeh stumbled across the Fanfiction Canon Assistry Wiki, created by former PPCers AelinTheAmazing and AddiePenguin, which had many articles bearing a striking resemblance to PPC Wiki articles. A second, very similar wiki by the same authors, Plot Protection Society Wiki, later came to light. Both were determined to be outright plagiarized upon further investigation, which revealed not only stolen PPC Wiki articles, but a plagiarized version of Jay and Acacia's first mission, "Rambling Band." In addition, they had taken articles from the Anti-Cliche and Mary Sue Elimination Society Wiki and the text of "Redwall Defense Guide," a fanfiction by Toboe LoneWolf.
Attempts by Ekyl to contact AelinTheAmazing and AddiePenguin proved fruitless. Neshomeh petitioned Wikia Support with this information and a thorough index of over 60 plagiarized articles, and both the Fanfiction Canon Assistry and Plot Protection Society Wikis were deleted on 25 November.
