approval of your premise or rough synopsis.
Plot submissions should feature Star Verse characters.
We cannot buy any stories about characters Star Verse
doesn't own, nor can we judge how well you handle

involved in upcoming storylines. Avoid doing anything
that infringes upon the regular writer's domain, such
as resolving subplots or old continuities.
