      Oathbringer Spoiler Policy   11/13/2017

      Oathbringer is out! Let's make our policy on spoilers clear! 1. You must preface topics with Oathbringer spoilers with the prefix [OB] in the front 2. You are only allowed to post spoilers and spoiler topics in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board, Cosmere Theories, and some select work-related forums. 3. For posts in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board you do not need to use spoiler tags inside a topic marked [OB]. For Cosmere Theories, you also do not need to put spoiler tags inside your topic if the topic has [OB] in the title. However, for Cosmere Theories, if you are adding Oathbringer stuff to an old theory without the [OB] tag, those must go in spoiler tags and you must make it obvious outside the spoiler tag that the spoiler is regarding Oathbringer content. 4. For select things that do require talking about OB spoilers, in Events, Coppermind, and Arcanum forums, those are allowed but keep OB spoilers in spoiler tags 5. Avoid and minimize spoilers in topic titles--even though those two boards will not appear in the Recent Topics ticker, topic titles still appear in Recent Activity and the forum home.  6. You aren't allowed to post Oathbringer spoilers in places other than listed, even with spoiler tags.  It will be nine months and then the Oathbringer board will be re-merged with the Stormlight board and you will not need to tag these spoilers. If you'd like to move something in the Stormlight Archive board to the Oathbringer board, to update it with new Oathbringer information, Report the post and we will happily move it to the Oathbringer spoiler board. Part-by-part Reactions Though the Oathbringer Spoiler Board will be very spoilery, very fast (maybe don't come there until you've read the book, as people do have copies that bookstores sold early), you'll have these five topics for reactions if you want to nerd out: Part 1 Reactions
      Part 2 Reactions
      Part 3 Reactions
      Part 4 Reactions
      Full Book Reactions For parts 1-4, they will not include the interludes immediately following it. On Discord All Oathbringer spoilers on Discord will be exclusively in the #oathbringer_spoilers channel for the nine month spoiler period and nowhere else.

  1. Been like 4 months :( Missing you.

  2. Thanks, Del. You're the best.
  3. ANNOUNCEMENT: I will no longer be posting chapters of that Who/Potter crossover here. If you want to read it, I'm hosting chapters on Quotev.
  4. Yes. I'll post it there. Now just isn't the best time to remind me, all right?
  5. Today sucked. I just want it to be over, but there are still 5 hours left for crappy rust to happen.
  6. Maybe because you should hope you don't run into him?
  7. Thanks, guys! Also, @Mistrunner, I know this is a bit belated, but I've also been compiling the chapters over on Quotev, if that's easier.
  8. I understood you perfectly. (Seriously, I didn't think Trump at all. Not sure what that says about my own strangeness. )
  9. Wait—that's probably not what you meant. Maybe something more like this?
  10. Argue in favor of teaching more enjoyable books, still with literary value, in schools? A few good examples would be William Golding's The Princess Bride as a study in archetypes, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein as an example of an epistolary novel with a complex moral argument, and F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby as an example of a book with an unreliable narrator.
  11. So you're not even going to try to see Elsa's side in this?
  12. Please, please don't leave it at that. Please try to see it from Elsa's point of view. Look at this situation from the perspective of someone who has to be in a position of powerlessness, at the mercy of a guy who knows she can't fight back. Because right now, you're siding with the villain here.
  13. Happy birthday! I hope you don't mind if I bring a few friends?
  14. There are a few factors your assessment doesn't take into account, though: 1) This guy is already known as a cremhole, meaning he may or may not have done something like this before. 2) If she did "make him feel worthless," as you say, then his reaction was to lash out and insult her, when he could (and should) have left well enough alone. This does not make him out to be a good person. 3) I agree that the slapping thing was wrong, and I wouldn't have demanded an apology; however, saying he would be justified in hitting her is completely wrong and not okay in any context. 4) Saying he "craves your attention and you are giving it to him" implies that she asked for this treatment. Which she absolutely did not. 5) Back to the "made him feel worthless" remark. Look, he began by reducing her lack of enthusiasm at seeing him to her menstrual cycle. That's a tactic commonly used to brush off a woman's emotions, to invalidate her anger or frustration by chalking it up to hormones. Not only that, but he did it as a means of insulting her in front of anyone who was listening. This would be like a woman insulting a man, then brushing it off with "You're a man, you only have like two emotions anyway." In conclusion, I can see the point you're trying to make, but this guy is not the sort of person who deserves sympathy or to be defended.
  15. Wow. This guy is practically a poster child for why we need feminism. I think the best thing you can do here is ignore him, and if he retaliates, make a really big deal out of it. Even if you don't go to the principal, make sure everyone sees you as the poor girl who was hit by one of the boys in her year. Let them see you slapping him as the hysterical reaction of a girl who thought she was in serious danger. If you can't get him into trouble officially, make sure the whole school sees him as a villain.
