The title says it all ladies and gentleman. Tell ya thoughts in replies.


#2

Honestly, I haven’t read many military stories. I’d be open to trying one though.


#3

Oooohhh. I can help you with that ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


#4

Moved to Episode Fan Community as this is an Episode-specific post :v:t2:

Thanks Ryan!


#6

Never read a story like that.

I’m taking my first story that I ever made, and redoing it to be a more Military like story. The worries I have, is I’ve never made a story so mature? (Like with a msg, like with sensative topics) one of the huge focuses would be PTSD and depression.

I also worry that if I write a military story, I might be promoting voilence.

If you want you can submit a ticket and ask them to review your story to make sure that it follows their guidelines. That’s what I did. Hope this helps.


#9

I agree with some of the posts here. I have not read many military stories. I think I might be interested in reading them on Episode


#10

I don’t like them being a defence spouse and actually dealing with that life and I’ve seen first hand men and woman leaving and coming back not the same person PTSD how families get ruined.
I just hate seeing glamourising of defence as it isn’t that’s my main problem not on episode but tv and movies.

I think it really depends on the content, you know, not everybody who went to military has PTSD.

I’m gonna go really soon, a lot of my family was in the military and it’s not like we’re depressed freaks on mads, it’s not all wars, and I wouldn’t read a story that present it in a bad way, of course there is violent in the military but people shouldn’t go too far.

but if the story is good and worth reading I would definitely read it!

:thinking: Well… I guess it depends really. How it’s portrayed, how respectful the author is to that lifestyle, and what the military is like in their country? There’s so many variables I think. I haven’t really read any here in Episode and the one I did read that mentioned it, I wasn’t too fond of to be honest. It was BAD, just wasn’t my taste. I grew up in a military family and grew up around the military my whole life, I spent a ton of time surrounded by them and on bases and traveling around from base to base so I would have a different view on it than somebody else. I guess it just depends really in the end. Lol

you won’t be promoting Violence. The Armed Forces are a violent thing to join up to in he beginning so having violence in your story won’t be out of place.


#14

Sorry for my lack of words, my story’s military is placed in 1902 in Germany. And it’s more about politics than actual war. I’m also worried that being called a fascist because of having Germany as the country…

By the way don’t get me wrong, I have a huge respect for the military. I wanted to become a soldier myself but I couldn’t even fill the form due to my gender…


#15

If you portray war in an honest light and not glorifying it then you should be fine. I LOVE unique stories about war and especially ones that take place in the past. What is the title of your story?


#16

It’s not released yet, but once it is I’ll inform you. :smile:


#17

Cool, I’d love to read it :blush:


#18

cool do you do it in limelight???


#19

Sorry, already started in Ink. Sadly there isn’t any military clothes on Limelight.
