To avoid any confusion as to how exactly this happened, we keep a list of all the fandfms and what happened to them here.
The first person who applies for a character from a certain fandom gets to decide whether it was bulldozed to make room for a pan galactic highway, or destroyed by a mad scientist. If that happens to be you, simply comment to this post with the name of the fandom and how exactly it happened. If you don't want to decide, comment here anyway telling us your character doesn't know or won't tell anyone how it happened, and we'll leave it open for the next person who applies from that fandom.
Keep in mind, it's the first person who applies, so if you got your reserve in first but were slow with the actual application, you've lost your chance.
You can come up with almost anything you like -- use your imagination! -- or steal someone else's idea if you like. Don't come complaining to us if that happens, be flattered that someone else liked your idea that much instead.
THE TEXT BELOW IS IMPORTANT. IT'S RED. IT'S THAT IMPORTANT.
We have one rule: Unless it happens to be canon, the world was not destroyed by any character from your fandom. Someone else might app that character later, after all, and they might not want the blame for that. Aside from that though, go wild!

Speeding; geezers do it, youngsters do it, planets do it not to be outdone. Too bad that the intergalactic speedtickets consist mostly of, well, BOOM.
