Okay, so I'm a fanfic writer, but my muses of the moment are some real people. A minor league hockey team, the Youngstown Phantoms (www.youngstownphantoms.com). And I wrote a fanfic about two of the guys. I think I got their personalities and it turned out pretty good.
The question is, should I post it at fanfiction.net (a fanfiction site) under "original"? Would it be considered an original? As long as I give out disclaimers, would it be alright? You think anyone will turn it in to the Phantoms themselves and I'd get in trouble.
Or it is just not worth risking getting in trouble for?
