For the easily offended pup:

Sheldon has no tact whatsoever, but he's not really malicious. It's simply that he's a genius, and probably has some form of Asperger's - he only really has empathy that he's been taught, he's very bad at reading facial cues and he doesn't really understand why people get upset when he is unfailingly honest. Which isn't to say that people always understand, and forgive him - his friends get mad at him all the time. He's used to being called on things when he gets them wrong. So if your pup is likely to get upset at having their deficiences pointed out/their problems ignored then...tag or not as you see fit! Please keep in mind that Sheldon's views are not that of the mun.  

For the fangeek in Sheldon/the physics genius bit:

I am not a physics genius. At all. So I'll do my best with what the show provides, and outside research but please take it as given that ALL MISTAKES ARE MINE. Sheldon does not get everything right when he's researching the unknown, but things all ready written, he knows. If you don't want tags to take an hour while I Google information, it might be better not to engage him in complex math that he could answer in a flash, but I don't understand even a little bit.

All that aside, this is probably the main point of this post - Sheldon is a sci-fi/comic book/fantasy geek. He also has an eidetic memory. He watches anime/films/TV shows, he plays video games and card games and World of Warcraft...in short, he knows far more about your canon than I do. I will do my best! (He doesn't seem to read many books that are not for science, so I might be on safer ground there.) Please forgive OOC communications if I need to clarify something with you on things I haven't seen, but he will have. 

Even more importantly - if anyone tags his EP from a canon he's familiar with, we may run into trouble. Obviously, someone's first entrance into the bar is weird as it is. If he gets tagged with, for example, someone from Star Trek, or Harry Potter, or one of the DC/Marvel crew, then his first instinct will to be all over the 'actor' - he won't know about canon puncturing, and he won't have a clue that what he's saying isn't 'done' - and until someone points out to him that canon-puncturing isn't 'done', he's likely to just blurt things out. So please keep that in mind if you feel like tagging! He'll be fairly dumbstruck at first anyway, so hopefully any mishaps can be headed off at the pass. And once someone tells him it's a social convention to keep his mouth shut about such thigns, he'll be fine. Obviously, pre-canon punctured pups would be fine, just drop me a note here to say it's OK for him to run his mouth.

And to end, then; please consider this the place to come for OOC communication, now or in the future. There are so many people Sheldon would love to meet - hopefully, when he's learned that these are the actual characters, and not their actors, then things will be fine. But at first, some caution should be exercised.

Thank you!

Seems like a Battlestar - Big Bang meeting would be inevitable!

I won't speak for the entire BSG crew here and now, but on a personal level I'm fine with any internal freaking out meeting Kara Thrace could lead to. Actual in-your-face canon-puncturing would be a different story because Kara may not respond well to the idea of her life being a work of fiction. So if Sheldon and Starbuck are going to meet it should probably happen when he's less likely to blurt out something about the show.

I've been thinking this over for a couple days now. While on a personal level I can roll with canon-puncturing, I don't know that it would be the best thing for Sam if it happened. For one thing, he's in from before his first canon appearance (although his appearance here is covered in some stuff that came out post-BSG being aired. Sheldon would probably know about The Plan even if you don't). BUT. I am trying to avoid having Sam get spoiled for the events of the series, and canon-puncturing him would be a really spectacular way of spoiling him not only for the events of the series, but also for everything else.

That all out here in the open, I am always willing to discuss things with you before (or during) a thread if you want to; I like to work through things organically as they come up. The other thing is this: if you are planning on working Sheldon through canon, you can always feel free to have him mistake Sam for David Underhill if you ever get to that part of Season Two. Or earlier, since Sheldon at least knows of Dr. Dave, or whatever you want!

Bottom line: I feel pretty much the same as Starbuck's player, that Sam wouldn't take kindly to being told he's fictional and having someone else know all about him, with the exception that in his world he was famous and people knew a lot about him. So I'm not much help, but talk to me if it comes to that. It will all be good and all be fun.
