Response Center 1110 is currently the home of Agents Derik and Gall Knutson of the Department of Mary Sues. When original characters decide that their own whims are more important than canon—and indeed good writing—it's the agents' job to step in, compile a list of offenses sufficient to formally charge the OC as a Mary Sue, and then carry out the penalty: death. Derik is a former bronzerider from a bad Dragonriders of Pern crossover; Gall and her companion Fellrazer are a Viking and dragon team from a How to Train Your Dragon movieverse badfic. They have a strained and somewhat tempestuous relationship, but no matter how much they fight along the way, they manage to get the job done.
Although Derik, Gall, and Fellrazer live in the response center, it is actually owned by Arasgorn the mini-Balrog and Severe the mini-Aragog. The minis originally moved in with Agent Neshomeh, but simply refused to move out when she did. Of the two, Arasgorn is easily the most laid-back, and he happily shares his fireproof corner with Fellrazer. Severe, on the other hand, quite lives up to his name-mistake.
Derik was formerly partnered with Agent Earwig Slugthrower, a kender from the Dragonlance universe. The partnership lasted for only two missions before Earwig got distracted and wandered off, as kender do. This is probably for the best.
The response center is similar to a dormitory. From the door, the left wall is dominated by the console, but there is space on either side for bookshelves and a nook for Arasgorn and Fellrazer. Derik and Gall have room for their cots, a clothes chest, and a small dresser along the right and near walls. The decor is mostly spartan, without even a rug on the cold Generic Surface floor, except that Gall hasn't bothered to replace the garishly patterned blankets left behind by Earwig. On the far wall, there are doors to the bathroom and a storage closet. The ceiling is Severe's realm, and he can usually be found lurking in an upper corner, waiting to punish the agents for anything he finds offensive.
Derik and Gall are prone to being assigned to badfics with dragons in them, to Gall's delight and Derik's dismay. They are both somewhat stab-happy, or whatever the equivalent is for people who wield bludgeoning weapons, but Derik's regard for order and duty keeps the team's nastier urges in check . . . as long as he doesn't snap under the pressure.
