   Hi!  I'm writing a Fan-Fic story for the forum, but I'm not sure if it's okay to use the characters from How To Train Your Dragon.  Would that be against the rules, or is it okay?  I've read a lot of other Fan-Fic stories that used the How To Train Your Dragon characters, but I thought that was against copy write.  Are the rules different with Fan-Fic?

Hello!

 

I'm not an admin, but I can answer this for ya. The definition of fanfiction:

 

Fanfiction: fiction written by a fan of, and featuring characters from, a particular tv series, movie, etc.

 

So yes, using Cannon characters in a fanfic is completely okay :)
