I’ve seen the word MC used a few times now when people have sent you questions that you’ve replied to, but, even with a Google search, I’m still somewhat unsure what the letters stand for. I have an idea, but I’d like to know for certain.

That would probably be Main Character. On a related note, OC is Original Character. You usually see this one pop up in the fan fiction and RP community, but I’ve seen it drifting into more general use among amateur and aspiring writers over the last few years.
