If you want to have a discussion in your story thread, I suppose that would be fine within reason- if it's just you replying to your own thread without much substantive discussion, that would be problematic, but if there's discussion happening among multiple people, I don't see a problem. Resource is a community, which is why we don't have threads about individual stories. It's not about your story, or my story, or anyone else's- there are a lot of ideas that could apply to many stories people are writing, or may want to write. We can have an interesting discussion about the use of Force lightning in fanfic, and it can apply to a lot of people. But the forum is not here to make your story decisions for you; we have a Master/Padawan system set up to help if that's something you need. And I really do encourage you to take advantage of it, as it will help you not only with your writing, but just getting around these boards and being a part of the community. To that end, I'm altering the title of this thread to reflect a more general subject, since this thread is generating interesting discussion.
