I don’t want to vote yes or no because I assume this is in terms of Episode. As a white girl, I obviously can’t relate to this situation. But I do understand. I don’t think it’s too deep (I actually think it should be talked about more), but with the guidelines, it would probably be flagged by the episode team.

I’ll take that into consideration and go over the guidelines again before I post/publish the chapter. Thank you so much. I’ve been looking for actual feedback and not just a yes or no response so I appreciate the time you took. :blush:

Of course! I’ve just seen authors have controversial topics like this in their stories and they have been contacted by episode to have it removed otherwise their stories would be removed. I didn’t want the same for you :sweat_smile:

No, I don’t think this is too deep. But then again others may think differently.

Side note but whenever u finish the story, can you send me it? I love it so far!

Move forward with your scene. We need more of this on the app.

Not a problem. I’m thinking this will be a scene were the reader can either chose to ease drop on, or not. Westley and his mom aren’t main characters but their parts in the story is integral to the MC’s life and how they can potentially view things.

I wanted to show the POV from a black male and the fear that laces conversations like this when parents have to have them with their children, but especially their boys.

I think that’s a good idea! I love that you’re writing stories that represent reality, we don’t get enough of that on this app. Especially from a POC point of view.

I think so too. I’m just worried Episode will force me to remove the scene because as someone stated above, it’s too “controversial”.

It’s important to the following conversation that happens with the MC and her parents and another unpopular topic. If I have to tweak it a bit to be Epi approved, then I’ll just have to grunt and smile my way through it, but I never see anything like this in stories and while I never lost anyone to gun violence, and police brutality, I know people who have. This may not be my truth to speak on, but it still needs to be told…:woman_shrugging:t5:

:thinking: I say move forward with it. I honestly don’t see it as a “controversial” topic. It’s just a worried mother speaking to her son about their reality. Your not breaking any guidelines from the scene you showed us.

I have one friend that has a story that deal with harsher subject matters. If it makes you feel better you can have a Trigger warning that says “This story discuss controversial topics. Reader discretion is advised.” Me personally, I would make the scene. Because we don’t have alot of stories being told from our point of view. It’s just sad that our reality is much harsher.

It sounds like a very beautiful scene of what’s going on in today’s world. Mature vocabulary, I would love to see this be displayed correctly, it could end up a fan-favorite of mine on the app when you publish. I hope in this scene you fill the atmosphere with the emotion of what the characters are feeling and you seem to be on that line. I look forward to this piece in the future, You seem talented.

Thank you for the feedback, I really appreciate it. This topic is one of the many that I want to touch on and, I’m honestly trying to get the plot straightened out.

Hopefully, I can live up to such awesome and high expectations… We’ll see and keep our fingers crossed. :crossed_fingers:t5::grimacing::crossed_fingers:t5: :woozy_face:
