This is a brief summary of various events in the PPC, Real World Time and HST-wise, during the year 2020.

January Edit

1
  • Four Moons Watching sets up a round robin writing prompts game.
  • Silv posts their first mission! In which new agents are introduced, a padded-out badfic creates a ridiculous Stu, and Liz has no idea what she's in for. (Contains some swearing, entirely on the part of the agents.)
8
  • Silv posts a second mission (to Miraculous Ladybug), in which a partnership is established, badfic is as badfic does, and more questions are raised than answered.
13
  • Scapegrace posts new episodes of PPC Citation Needed on the Board.
  • Zingenmir hits seven years as a Boarder, and doesn't muse about it while also kind of musing about it.
  • Thoth posts a eulogy for Neil Peart of the band Rush, who passed away on January 7th.
15
17
  • Christopher Tolkien, son of J. R. R. Tolkien and dedicated compiler and editor of his father's unpublished works, passes away at the age of 95. Namárië, Christopher. We are grateful beyond words for the treasures you made available to us.
  • Silv posts a third mission (to Miraculous Ladybug)! In which a short badfic with terrible execution produces a similarly short mission and half a dozen butterflies.
18
  • Sergio Turbo drops by and begins to post "The World Without Authors", a multi-chapter sort of non-canon sequel to his main spin-off ("Blank Sprite"). 2014 HST. The unthinkable has happened. World 1 somehow managed to wipe itself out, and the plot continuum unraveled. A single universe survived, a conglomeration of the scraps that survived the collapse. A world without authors, where canon, fanon and original are now meaningless terms.
  • Mofumo joins the Board!
21
  • Huinesoron runs a first attempt at an AI Dungeon PPC mission on the Board.
24
  • Huinesoron writes interestingly in his Friday blog about retelling the Silmarillion to a young audience.
25
28
  • Zingenmir plugs her new Whoniverse DC Superheroes AU fanfic. In it, Blaze has gone off the rails. Captain Charisma wants to know why. (Or, in a superhero AU, Jack Harkness wants to know what's up with his friend and superhero partner John Hart.)

February Edit

1
  • Iximaz reflects (spoiler-free) on the impact of The Good Place as the show ends.
  • Thoth writes about infohazards and Langford's Basilisk, and later reviews The Atrocity Archives (part of Charles Stross' Laundry Files).

  • ChampionOrChicken joins the Board!
5
  • Huinesoron posts an appeal for sanity on the Board, which is so unusual an idea in the PPC that it simply had to make the list of events.
  • OpinionedAngel brings glad tidings to the Board of the announcement of a Hamilton movie release date! October 15, 2021, to be precise. Hurrah!
7
9
  • Silv posts a pair of interludes! In "Clearing the Air", Liz and Avery have a Talk, and in "Homesick", a homesick agent seeks solace in tea.

  • Huinesoron shares an interactive memorial to the Old Board, which closed down in October 2019. The memorial shows the last view of the Old Board's front page, with the links set up to work (mostly leading to the mirrored posts on the New Board, as well as a screenshot or two of the Old Board).

  • Jean Yeap and Odysseus Nemo post an MST of "Master of the Universe" (the fanfiction precursor to the Fifty Shades Trilogy) on the Board.
  • Neshomeh reviews Dragon's Code by Gigi McCaffrey (a new Pern book published in 2018).
  • Zingenmir writes up this whole summary of 2020's events so far over the course of several hours, because sometimes sheltering in place gives you both an archiving mood and the sense of having time to fully indulge it. Also, January, February, and even early March seem very long ago now.
