So one thing that bears keeping in mind about this fine RP is that most works of media that we take for granted don't exist in it, because characters from them could appear at any moment. The solution to this is to make up new ones to replace them! That way our characters can have a corpus of pop culture to reference, and also making this shit up is super fun.

We've done this once before, so I'll start us out with a list of things already established to exist. Drop by the comments and make up new ones to expand our library!
