Selling the Drama  
In light of all the recent LJ drama, I thought I'd make a post regarding my position on F-locking and my stories.  I realize that many people out there were scared into locking down their journals for fear that the material contained within will get them into situations they do not desire.  While I certainly can empathesize, I refuse to be bullied. 

So, let me state this now.  My stories- all my stories- will never be F-locked unless mandated by the community I am posting to.  I realize that my work tends to be of the NC-17 nature and contains such controversial subjects as rape, child molestation/abuse, violence, and other uncomfortable subjects.    I won't try to convince everyone that I am staunchly against these practices in real life because that is not my place.  If you're stupid enough to believe that 100% of everything a person writes in a work of fiction are the beliefs of the author, well then I can't help you and the little yellow bus will be by to pick you up shortly.  Those who took or take the time to get to know me outside the fandom world already know the answer to that question and I'm far too tired to constantly remind everyone.

What many people, specifically the so-called "Warriors of Innocence," have wrong is that writing about illegal or immoral subjects in fiction is NOT illegal.  Did you get that?  Do I need to repeat myself?  Good.

We now return to your regularly scheduled programming....

You go girl! I didn't lock mine down either. I figure people can lie about their age online and say they are adults over 18 when they aren't, so I just stick with disclaimers (i.e. This story is NC-17 and if you're under 18 then don't read this).

Precisely. ^__^

There was drama and I missed it once again. But dear lord, if "they" don't approve of what's in someone's journal, don't read it... simple enough? *shakes head*

Zomg! How did you miss out on the biggest thing to hit LJ, like, ever?

But yeah, seems pretty elementary to me. Why is it that logic seems to fly out the window as soon as someone gets an agenda?

Zee fuck?
Umm... ya mean this group of people? Overzealous, ain't they?
So true about writing about something and thinking the author actually believes what they're writing... I mean, there's no crime actually done if it's just being played out in one's mind.

Good for you for standing up to them, eh? Have a cookie ^.^

Re: Zee fuck?
Same thing with all the RP comms that were shut down. It's fictional, not real. That group seems to be the ones suffering from a distinct case of stupid if they can't tell the difference.

Yay! I lurve cookies!

So, how've you been? Haven't chatted with you in a while. Granted, I haven't been online that much. This pregnancy thing is really exhausting.

Re: Zee fuck?
Been working my ass off at my job... they've boosted my hours and I'm considered a more responsible employee than I used to be.
