Top definition
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...
