111. No More Spoilers
My boyfriend and I play Zelda: Breath of the Wild together. I am a “take your time and enjoy the ride” kind of gal, while he is a “let’s look up how to beat this game right now” kind of guy. Because his way ruins all the fun, we came up with a rule: No looking up spoilers!
We were looking for a particular challenge (The Eight Heroine side quest for my fellow Zelda nerds) for a very long time. Suddenly, my boyfriend said: “I did something bad… I looked up where to go. I’m so sorry. I just couldn’t take it anymore.”
I told him it was fine but that he could not tell me what he had seen. He agreed. I then excused myself to the bathroom and looked up the location as well.
I then spent the next HOUR AND A HALF wandering SOOOO close to the location without ever making it there. I could see him squirming around in his seat every time I got close.
When I jumped off the cliff the statue was built into, gliding down to the base of the statue and continuing on without turning around to look at it, I thought he was going to explode. He was clenching his hair in both fists and biting his lower lip, trying to contain himself.
That’s when I caved and told him what I had done. He thought it was hilarious and told me about how he wanted more than anything to yell, “TURN AROUND!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!” We had a good laugh about it. He hasn’t looked up a spoiler since!
