As the first thread has dissapeared in the passages of time, and the subject has come up again I thought I'd restart this thread. Once a week or so, depending on the steam of the topic (as mesured by discussion) we'll pick a topic to discuss. How do we handle writing it and keep within the GUIDELINES of TFN. The ground rules: 1) Don't challange the board standards. 2) Don't pass judgement on writing about a particualr topic nor it's merits. I for one have extreem difficulty with the subjects of abuse and rape, but the subject (mostly the aftermath insted of the act) HAS been used in fan fic here on the boards while still staying within the limits. I hope the author who handeled that and lead that discussion will do so again *hint hint* I know who you are! 3) Don't violoate the TOS 4) If you don't like the topic, don't post. The last thread went well over 500 post, 99% of it was thoughtful discussion. Please either PM me or post a topic to get us started, then I'll change the thread title when we've decided on the first one.
