I am Kappa, known by that name in glowfic/on alicornutopia, and I play Leaf and Nifl. (Nifl has been quiet lately for reasons. I might bring her back at some point, but expect her participation and Leaf's to be somewhat inversely proportional.) (Are there spoiler tags on this forum...?)
Who are you and who do you play?
Participation in this thread optional, of course, if you like your secrets.
Hi! I'm anthusiasm/inquisitivefeminist/Annie and I play the Fortunomancer!
I'm planning to introduce some other characters from the same setting at some point. They will probably not be members of the Guild of Master Spellcrafters because while the Guild members all have personalities and backstories and relationships and such, they're still less fleshed out than my standards allow.
Hey I think I've figured out a way to sort of achieve the same affect as spoiler text! I did it by copying the BBCode from Andrew's books with hovertext. Basically this with the parentheses replaced by square brackets: (a title="'The spoiler bits go in here!'")(u)This contains an example spoiler(/u)(/a) Turns into this: This contains an example spoiler It's not as nice as a spoiler box, but I think it's pretty similar to spoiler text, so that might help some?
There is a use case for spoilertext in letting me put up a symbolic barrier around Nifl's identity and motivations so that if anyone wants to know those things, they will have to read A Spoiler in order to do so.
I haven't thought of an IC use case, but probably if it existed someone would eventually find one.

If someone wants to post something that's a memetic hazard to some people but not everyone, and wants to warn for it so it isn't removed, or something like that, it could be useful. There are probably other uses as well, and it could be fun to play around with!
