      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.

TWD - Chapter 14 - kais 05/22/17 4769 words (S*)

4 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

TWD may be skewing more dark fairy tale than dark fantasy. Unsure at this point. Anyway, here is the final glacier installment!

Edit: whoops, sorry everyone! Forgot there was a kissing scene in here. S* for kissing and some mention of breasts.

Comments. (Aw, man – I've got to type these out again instead of just keeping them in-line tracked changes).

  • “and the density from all those glacial conversations” – I don’t quite follow the train of thought here. Is ‘density’ the word you meant? Just a bit tortured, maybe.
  • “the coarseness of the scabs” – where are the scabs? Bit confused.
  • “She lowered her hand back to my hip” – I know what, you mean, but I think you need the words when it’s a specific thing (the hand) that’s being lowered. However you could probably get away with ‘she returned to my hip’, which could be her attention.
  • “reveling in the how much”
  • “might have been a beaver’s house” – shouldn’t you call it a lodge?
  • They’ll be an inn tonight” – there’ll
  • I enjoy Sor being tempted back to fungi
  • I like the emergence of detail about the negotiations.
  • Ooh, nice stinger at the end of the chapter.

There’s lots of good stuff in this chapter, and lots of it links into earlier themes and references; very satisfying. The ‘breaking’ of the tension between Sor and Mag is also a relief. I feel like there’s a point where you can take sexual tension too far, and the reader gets p’d off, in a bad way. I think this timing is good.

- The first line could be a bit tighter, maybe "Morning brought sun, but not heat."

- I like that Sorin is struggling to throw off alchemy, even by just noticing what the fungi. It's a really subtle take on temptation.

- I also really like the stinger at the end.

It is tortured, isn't it? I'll play around with better words.

Er, yes?

Yes this! One can only take so much before something has to give. Unfortunately, the next chapter doesn't have it give in a great way. Thank you so much for the comments!

Solid. Editing.

Thank you! It's hard to throw off what you've worked your whole life towards. Thank you, as always, for the comments!
