I get the feeling the office which wrote that answer is entirely made of (ex)politicians.

They gave us a giant wall of legal gibberish, while somehow still not giving a clear answer to the actual question that was asked.

They gave us a clear answer full of several different situations based on a common provocation, all bound in a thick blanket of legalese.

Even with all that was said, I'm still dubious that it'll do much to reign in the Man of Steel or the Austrian Corporal

And people wonder why I made a politician a captain in my story.  At least one Belle recognized that the captains needed an expert on their side... :-)

Oh, and Dory's a lawyer.  Cornell University, juris doctor class of 1928 (Women in Law through US history).  That said, she's a neophyte on the topic of international law and none of her committees in the People's House are foreign policy or military (although more due to sexism than her interests).  I didn't say it was going to be easy for her...

Mine is just a shell-shocked WWI vet who has zero political experience (unless you'd count the War in any shape or form) but a heck of a lot of military, albeit from a grunt's point of view

@DrYuriMom and @Wellington99 and everyone else with FF captains:

How about a character thread in the FF section? We could ask to pin it on first position as a "register" for the several Fanfic stories.

It's an interesting idea, and if a fan of our fics would like to compile such information, I don't think any of us would have a problem.  I don't speak for the other writers, but I believe that it's best for a reader to be able to read a story and glean information like that for themselves, rather than pick it out on a page and assume before even reading a word from the character's experiences and point of view.

My idea is shorter. Even shorter than those small texts on the back of a book (you do have'em in american countries, right?). Just a list with name and one sentence summary, that's on a fixed spot in the FF forum. So no story gets lost because it left the front page.

Yeah, I suppose you could use the front page to have a thread with a list of all the stories and links to them, similarly to Shirogane's Belle list.

@Legate of Mineta I have made the story thread.  Could you pin it to the top of the writer's corner so it's easily accessible?

Thank you.  It is now easily accessible for everyone!
