Out Of Character. A term used in roleplay when a person wants to step outside of their character for a minute and speak as themselves.

OOC is shown in a couple of ways, commonly with a label or as double brackets.

((Can I say something for a sec?)) or

OOC: Can I say something for a sec?

OOC's antonym is IC, or BIC-- "In Character" or "Back In Character."
((I'll just step OOC for a second here to say that roleplaying isn't evil and it's not a cult. It's a game.))

Out of character or out of context.

Used in fanfiction to describe a character who has been characterised differently to the canon.

an acronym for "Out of Character".

Frequently used in one of two situations:

1. in role-playing, indicating that a person is making a comment, suggestion, etc., that isn't coming from the character but from the person him- or herself.

2. in fanfiction, signaling that the way the author chose to portray the characters (or perhaps unintentionally portrayed them) may not be consistent with how the characters act, think, or speak in the original work on which the fanfiction is based.

OOC is most often used as an adjective, but can also be used as an adverb or, in less common cases, a verb.
1. ((OOC: Might not be on a lot next week. Just giving you a heads-up.))

2. Sorry if it's a little OOC, this is my first fic from his point of view, so it might not be very good...

Acronym for "Out of Control". Usually describing someone who's behavior is extreme, irrational, or uncalled for relative to a certain situation or environment. This may result in the person saying or doing something that requires further questioning.
At the office party, Erin was OOC when she danced on tables, and she needed to calm down.

ooc is a modern, object-oriented, functional-ish, high-level, low-level, sexy programming language. it's translated to pure C with a source-to-source compiler. it thrives to be powerful, modular, extensible, portable, yet simple and fast.
