Hi there, my name is Uncanny X-Factor, I'm an administrator here.
Aside from the fact that BeholdtheVision is inactive here for quite some time now, we are not the proper outlet for aiding in other Fandom's various conflicts. I am sorry that you are facing difficulties, and I hope they don't persist.
So, um... we don't know each other, but I'm Gary, I used to post a lot on here under another name, and I'm sort of interested in maybe doing something for Paragon Comics. I've been reading some of the comics in it and they're really cool. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to write a synopsis for my idea or something, but I could if you wanted me to. But if you don't really want me as a part of it that's fine, we're strangers and I haven't really shown my writing capabilities all that much so there's very valid reasons for rejecting me.
Oh my god, I almost had a heart attack when you replied! holy crap, okay gonna take a minute to calm down...
Okay, well, so my idea is something I've been working on for a while now. To make a very long story short, it's more or less a supernatural/surrealist teen drama that follows a group of teenagers ranging fron 16-19 called The Pack who are the followers of a philosophy that believes the world is split into three halves: order, chaos, and balance. They believe too much order will turn the world into a distopia but too much chaos and everything will suffer, so The Pack's goal is to try and keep balance between these two forces.
If you're interested about this part, the main character's abilities are technically reality warping but none of them actually have control of these abilities because they come from an outside force. I'm not sure how much I can give away without spoiling things so I'm sorry that I'm being vague, but I hope you at least got some enjoyment out of what I did write.
TL;DR: It's basically the Breakfast Club as directed by David Lynch.
That sounds insanely good and right in line with the other books we have running! It's so good, in fact, that I wanted to double check that you're okay with using it in Paragon. After all, if its a really good idea you may want to save it for a real comic or a novel or something.
I only say this because most of us use Paragon as a warm-up of sorts, using characters and concepts we love but aren't planning to monetize someday. You could definitely still make money off of The Pack someday even if its involved in Paragon, but some people prefer not to ... I don't know... dilute their brand? By affiliating their idea with a fanon project.
But I love the idea, and if you're okay with integrating into the shared Paragon U we'd love to have you!
Great, well, we'd love to have you. Let me know if you have any questions about how it works or how to get set up, and I'd reccomend reading through some of the other "comics" and commenting to show your support, that way the other Paragonians are motivated to do the same with yours!

I can't give you permission to use all of the Paragon characters- they still belong to their respective creators. If we talked more about what your ideas were for it, we could possibly make Starlight work. But for Contender you'd need to talk to JMOfficial, and for Shadow and Zenith you'd have to talk to Thecryingwolf.
What would the Astonishing Blaze be about? And TV shows are a whole new kettle of fish, I'm certainly open to it but we'd need to talk about it with the whole Paragon team. I don't know that JM would be open to using Contender like that, for example.
Uncanny X-Factor, ZoomZolomonZoom and I were planning a FanonCon revival on the Wiki. If you don't already know, FanonCon is a way to promote your upcoming project(s), share ideas, and get to know your fellow community members. If you're interested, let me know in this thread, or here, where me, X and Zoom have been discussing in more detail. Thanks!
