Added TWC (TWG / WG were already there.)

TWC = The White Christ.  First used by Mab in book, use of this term and TWG helps insulate our fictional theorizing from RL religion thus hopefully avoiding potential offense when we use our understanding of RL history, religion, and lore to influence how we understand the DF backstory.  Not respecting this boundary could lead to "TT" so this slang term is a very handy way to make it abundantly clear that one's comments are deliberately being applied to the fictional DF and not to real world beliefs.

OG?  I keep reading stuff like "OG Merlin" and understand it means essentially "original", but what does the "G" stand for?

I've always heard it as Original Gangster.  Though that may not be what is meant here.
At times I wish I had a clone, but then I realize, I could never live with that a-hole.

I suspect the word 'Gangster' isn't meant to be taken literally anymore. OG as 'Original Gangster' refers to someone who was a founding member of a gang. So OG, in the broad sense, refers to an original member of something, possibly even the founder.

For OG Merlin it's just a way of saying the Original Merlin/Merlin the Original Founder of the organization [White Council].
War Cry -
"Thomas doesn't fight back, not even for an instant. In the end, it's not common sense that pulls me back from the brink, or even fear of being devoured by the Shoggoth....It's the look of unshakeable trust in my Brother's eyes, even as my hands tighten around his throat."

I've taken "OG" to literally mean "Original Gangster" and to have a meaning something along the lines of "Street Legit."

So during theorizing I've started using a few acronyms for... alternate versions of characters in theorized future story lines.  Specifically the Mirror Mirror (MM) book and the theorized Time Travel book.  So I'm going to start cashing potential acronyms and slang for these characters in this post, but won't add them to the official dictionary until we get closer to the actual books and the predominant slang becomes more solidified.

The terms:
MMcone=MM Marcone
PGH=Proven Guilty Harry
TTH=Time Travel Harry
Yrrah=MM Harry

From what I've seen, Yrrah has largely been replaced by -Harry, /Harry, !Harry, and ~Harry.  I thought most had decided on -Harry, but then the others keep popping up.

Ah, I'd missed that evolution.  There's time for it to drift elsewhere anyways.

As if we could ever come to a consensus around here.   ::)
