May Discussion: Controversial Topics
I thought we did something like this recently, but apparently not.
Sometimes in fanfiction you come across things that JKR would have never dared mention in her books. I mean those R-rated topics - abuse, rape, student-teacher romances, etc. Then things that are more common but are often still controversial, such as religion, sexuality and teenage pregnancy. I'm sure there's more I'm missing. Anyway, onto the questions:
Do you think that these things have a place in the Potterverse?
Do you write about controversial issues in your fanfic? Give us examples.
Do you worry about the reader's reaction to your fics? How do you deal with people who are offended by what you have written?
Feel free to add more questions! :)
