    What's the general opinion of including fictionalised versions of real people in your fics?

    Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
    To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.

    Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
    And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

    Depends on the person...

    Are you talking real people fic? Or adding a living-breathing person into it?

    In case of the first that's a line I'm not comfortable crossing.
    In case of the second, I think staying true to the person, should be attempted.

    Ok, to give an example - a British character is to receive an honour of some sort from the Queen (or other member of the royal family).

    Would you specifically write some dialogue between the two, or just have it pass in a daze for the fictional character?

    I see nothing wrong with having real people in fics, but the interactions with fictional characters need to be realistic. The dialog between the Queen and the recipient of an honor is probably pretty standardized, and you can probably use Google to find out what is usually said.

    Having it pass in a daze is probably easier, though.
