Talk:Get 'em

Someone told me I wasn't allowed to make a glossary entry for whumping although there is lot one could write about it. Instead I had to put everything on the h/c page (Get'em was mentioned there as well). Has this changed and there can now be entries for h/c related terms? --Doro 22:22, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Why wouldn't a whump page be allowed? That doesn't make sense to me. *confused* Mrs. Potato Head 22:26, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
Take a look at the h/c talk page. A mod had issues with not having everything remotely related bundled on the h/c page. I had to argue to even get disabilityfic its own entry...--Ratcreature 22:29, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
It didn't make sense to me either but rache was very insistent although several people disagreed (see Talk:Hurt/Comfort). She wanted to make sure that everything h/c related was kept in one place. I don't see why it can't be on the h/c page and have its own glossary entry too. Maybe it's time to revisit that decision and make glossary entries for terms that are...glossary terms. *g*--Doro 22:33, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
Yeah. I'm still in favor of separating the genres, just as I was then. In particular with the hurt and torture focused genres I think the impulse behind them is different enough to justify their own genre page. The "I want to break X down" theme that is dominant in hurt/hurt, whump, torture etc is quite different from "I want X hurt so they are dependent on Y for help and comfort", that is the classic h/c theme.--Ratcreature 23:00, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
