Forum:Examples of In-Universe Writing/Personality, etc.
Hey, just a suggestion, I've seen quite a few articles that request personality sections or for plot synopsis to be re-writtern "in universe." Any chance we could get a link to some really good examples of these either in the style guide or somewhere else that's easily accessible? I'd like to help improve these sections but since there's no ready example, I haven't done anything, that could be the case with other users too. Just throwing it out there,

- "In-universe" just means to not write story sections that constantly say "In Kingdom Hearts they did this, In Kingdom Hearts II they did this". Tell the story as if it was real; it has nothing to do with the tone or style of the writing. For example, never ever say "during the ending credits of Kingdom Hearts II, X is seen doing Y." Say "Sometime after the defeat of Xemnas, X does Y."
- Nearly every article has this problem, mostly because people aren't making themselves familiar with our policies. Honestly, Ice Titan is probably the best Story coverage that is in-universe."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 20:11, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
- Okay, what about personality sections?? And are in-universe articles allowed to reference "the player" or I'm guessing not?? Thanks,
