OOC

What does OOC mean?

OOC is an acronym that stand for out of character. It is often used in role-playing when a person wants to break character or in fanfiction when a writer is expressing concern that a character was not himself in a certain scene or instance of dialogue. The opposite of OOC is BIC (back in character). Sometimes, it stand for out of context, as well.

OOC can also stand for out of control. This is used to describe someone who got too drunk or rowdy, typically.

For example

The one thing I worry about a lot when writing fanfiction is that I will end up writing everyone OOC.

Joel.. you have taken this Out Of Context #OOC you need to apply this statement correctly. It applies when the local kebab man gives you lamb instead of chicken. Then you can fight then until they submit
