    A question of tense

    November 21, 2013 by Jiskran

    I would be interested to know other people's feelings on this point. It seems strange to me that, within a single article, the story often shifts back and forward between past and present tense while describing a procession of events. Should there be a standard of past or present tense for all pages? Is the 'now' of a given episode the present tense for  writing about that series of events?

    Presumably, if there is a 'now' for these tales it is the timeframe of the five seasons.

    On an unrelated note, I also wonder if the information and pages pertaining only to the novels should be specially marked, or have some other categorisation which shows that this information wasn't seen or heard on screen.
