I just want to point out that it has always been possible on RACC for
people to reserve characters that were not their own either because
they got permission from the person who created them or because the
characters were considered free to use but a writer needed them for a
story they needed to write.  It was also always understood that when a
character was being used in a storyline that wasn't finished that the
character was implicitly (but not explicitly) reserved.  For example,
when Josh Geurink wrote but didn't finish the aLLiterative Lass series
it was understood that people couldn't use her, not until he told
people that aLLiterative Lass was already back but that he just hadn't
told the story of how she came back.  It was very common in the early
days of the LNH (at least when people started writing series) for
people to reserve the so-called public domain characters.  If the
characters were being reserved for a specific storyline then they went
back to being free to use when the storyline was over.
