As a result of the poll thread here , here is a new thread where authors may post WHAM warnings, 'broken toys' reassurances etc, rather than including them at the start of their story, thus spoiling some readers who don't want to be spoiled.

Use of this thread is by no means compulsory! But if you wish to use this thread, here's what to do:

Authors:

If you don't want to post the warning yourself - because your name showing as the last poster might alert readers to the fact that you've posted a warning - send your warning to admins@lcficmbs.com. Include your name and your story title plus the warning you'd like to have posted. In the subject-line of your email, please write WHAM warning thread.

For example, if I'd used this thread for A Twist of Fates, I would have posted something like this:

Quote:

A Twist of Fates by Wendy Richards

This is a TOGOM adaptation in which Lois is killed stopping the bullet which was meant for Clark. However, I promise to put all my toys back together by the end.
Readers:

If you prefer to know about WHAMs, or want to be reassured that authors will fix their toys etc, then check this thread whenever there's a new story, or whenever you notice that there's a new post here.

If you don't want to know any spoilers, just don't open this thread!


As soon as this thread gets to one complete page, it will be unstickied and a new one started. That way you won't have to scroll through two pages to see the latest warnings.

Hoping this helps.

The Road Taken
by Terry Leatherwood

Quote:
"The Road Taken" contains an ending where one of the main characters of the story dies. I mean, the character REALLY DIES! No magic comebacks, no miracles, no Superman interventions, no "deus ex machina" saved-at-the-last-nanosecond reprieves. This character dies and stays dead. The toy stays busted.

Sorry about that. I honestly can't resolve the conflict any other way.

WHAM warning for a new story:

24 Hours

This story, which I will start posting some time in the next few days, begins with a very serious WHAM. Scroll down if you want more details.

The story places Lois in a life-and-death situation. For most of the story, she is critically ill. As always, I intend to put my toys back safely - well, more or less safely wink - before the end, so never fear: it's not a deathfic.

Our story has Lois and Clark coping with the death of their son, which has put a strain on LnC marraige> Yes, it does get worse b/c Clark is called back to Krypton. But don't worry there will be a happy ending

Near Wild Heaven II - Belonging, by Kaethel

I originally didn't plan on posting a warning for the next part as in concerns a minor character, but since so many readers seemed to like Dave (Lois's editor-in-chief), I must warn you that that first part was the only section where you'll see him, since he dies in the part I'm going to post tonight.

Sorry guys!

Remember Me

I will begin posting this story tomorrow, June 15th. 2 characters die in this story, although I do not consider this story a deathfic. One is a major character and one is a supporting character. I wasn't originally going to post a WHAM warning because the death of the major character isn't permanent. The character is alive and well at the end of the story. Also, the supporting character who dies - I didn't really kill this character off, the series did that. They died in the series. But since there are strong feelings about deathfics, I thought a warning would be appropriate.

If you feel that you need further information before you would feel comfortable reading this story, go to my profile and e-mail me at my e-mail address - I'll provide you with as much or few extra details as you want.

Thanks!

I've been writing a story and it has been suggested that I add a wham warning, so here it is..

The story: 'A New Hero' (formerly 'Zared')

The wham: Lois is dead.


I hope you like the story anyway.

Certainly not deathfic, but if you're unhappy with one of the main characters being injured, just stay away.

Choices and Consequences Take One and Two deal with the aftermath of tragic deaths in Lois's life, but Resolution puts all the toys back where they were.

A tertiary character (but one I liked a lot) is about to buy the farm and in a rather unpleasant way. Unfortunately, such is the nature of war. My apologies if the death of a minor character is upsetting.

Part 13 is the one and only part of No, In Any Language that may bother some readers. While the violence is mild and mostly inoffensive I wanted to warn the readers that if they are particularly sensitive to discussions about rape or campus violence they might want to avoid this part.

Men of Steele 13 contains a fair bit of violence that might offend some readers it isnt' anything you'd see in a Tarantino film, but it's defintly more then you'd see on LnC.

For those who like to be forwarned of WHAMs...

The story Zenith posted by clrgard has a WHAM in that Clark/Superman is blind as a result of Dr. Leit's device and his eyesight did not improve with the use of the infrared light.

"Further On Down The Road" has a character death coming. I really can't tell you any more than that, except that it's a permanent death and no sleight of hand will bring the victim back.

This is a general warning for On The Other Hand.

Besides what is mentioned more specifically below, the characters do find themselves in life and death situations on more than one occasion. However, this is *not* a death fic of any kind - in fact, I can only think of a couple periphery characters that may die so...

There are also the general life difficulties that tend to come over the course of several years.

In Ch. 7, there is a potential implied sort of WHAM as in - the characters aren't sure if something bad happened or not - there's no clear memory or way to know the whole truth about what happened at the this point [though they do later]. I honestly did try to find another way around this particular plot point, but I just couldn't. I would imagine by Ch. 10-11 or so, it'll probably start to become clear why the plot point had to be there. It will become clearer still in Ch. 20 or 21 why it was needed.

If you feel that you need more details, please email or PM either now or later smile .

Thanks smile .

I've been debating for weeks whether to post a WHAM for this chapter of "A Box of Swiss Chocolates", but I finally decided I'd better be safe in case it really bothers some readers.

As any reader who read chapter 21 knows, Kiley is sick. In chapter 22, she is critically ill.

Kiley is fine by the end of the chapter.
