OK, folks-this is the general forum now for questions that don't seem to fit in any of the other threads. I'm going to sort some of the earlier posts into the appropriate forums, but it might take a while, so bear with me. I'll delete the ones that have already been reposted by their authors.
Gosh guys, you don't want much, do you?
Well, no *g*. And yet, you know there is a difference between wanting things and getting things - which still hasn't stopped anyone from wanting things anyway!
I am so tempted to go ahead and write this story and put it up despite the fact that it would finally answer once and for the choices Heth made. It is totally burning a hole in my brain, but I have to wonder if it would kill my muse or take some of the heat off. I really don't know which would happen. If you all knew the ending, would you be interested in sticking around for the rest of it, and all that...
As far as I'm concerned, you may go right ahead and post whatever you feel you want to/need to. I'm hopeless about spoilers anyway. And your canon as written is full of chronological back-and-forth jumps and holes and spoilers anyway (going so far as to Heth's great-grandson), so I imagine your readers are used to it.
I would think this would only be a problem for people whose only reason of further suspense and expectation is the question of who-will-Heth-nest-with (which would be a very restrictive attitude and a waste appreciation of your rich and complex writing and world-building, IMO). And although I'm in the other camp from Gwidhiel, I'm 100% with her in this respect: even if that question isn't answered as I'd like it to, I'd still be following along very eagerly.
On the plus side, there's some stuff floating around that could be posted once I settled the issue once and for all.
Why not do what Nargil said and write it down just for yourself, to get it out of your head. You can then later decide if you want to publish it or not.
Isn't there something Altariel has already written that might be published if you do go forward with loosing this specific spoiler policiy?
