Spoiler warnings needed for movie!fill request?

(Anonymous) 2011-02-18 03:10 am (UTC)(link)
I have an idea for a fill for whenever the next round of requests opens, and whether or not I hit the right window I think this question needs to be asked anyway: since Hetalia: Paint It, White! is officially out on DVD in Japan but doesn't yet have its official English subbed/dubbed release available, should any requests and fills that involve the movie have some sort of spoiler warning? Or does it not matter?

I think that while it's probably not strictly necessary (getting spoilered isn't in the same category as getting triggered, after all), it would certainly be courteous and considerate to include one, so why not do so?

I'd say it doesn't matter. We had people who hadn't read the Christmas strips asking who's work bitch, whats with Finland being America's dad. People keep up to date with canon at a different rate.

I've seen the movie but spoilers are a huge peeve of mine and there's probably others who feel the same. There's no reason not to give warning, like anon above said it's considerate to do, so I'd say yes. At least until a fansub is available.

I agree with the first anon. While it's nice to have, it doesn't really matter. Also need to consider that people jump into this fandom at any moment, and those newer fans, if they read any fanfiction concerning with a comic strip they're just reading spoilers.

Above anon already used Workbitch and Finland being America's daddy as an example, but there's when a new strip or side drawings of Himaruya's appear on his blog, that tends to inspire some requests here. Also for anime-only fans they'd be confused for any request with Korea or Britannia Angel since they've never been in the anime. We can't be responsible for every fan not being up-to-date. Anons should be reading at thier own discretion.

So yeah, it's nice of you think of putting a warning, but it's no big deal if you don't for a request.
