Turned up in one of Faenoriel's posts on this thread. Initially I thought she was referring to her own formidable intellectual artillery. But when I looked it up it turns out to be a "not un-useful" phrase:
Head cannon (or "headcannon")
An idea, belief, or aspect of a story that is not mentioned in the media itself, but is accepted by either the reader themselves or the fandom in general. If it is confirmed by the author of the story, it becomes canon.
In Homestuck , a popular webcomic , many suspect the headcanon that the trolls are carnivores, because of their natural homicidal tendencies and sharp teeth.
Many do not agree with this, but they're pretty retarded to not see that THEY HAVE SHARK TEETH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.
(Just putting that one out there....)
"Find the smoking head cannon" could be a new sport on these pages...
Disclaimers: The words of noWizardme may stand on their heads! I'm often wrong about things, and its fun to be taught more....
"nowimė I am in the West, Furincurunir to the Dwarves (or at least, to their best friend) and by other names in other lands. Mostly they just say 'Oh no it's him - look busy!' "
Or "Hold off! unhand me, grey-beard loon!"
