Hello, I was working on a story which, the main female character, sells drugs. But in no way I romanticize this, in the contrary, I remember the reader several times that, that is definitely not the right path to take and that I do not support it. So, I was wondering if I would still be able to publish my story without fear of it being taken down. I tried to reach episode, but I got no answer!
you should put a warning at the start about that
Welcome back to Episode Forums, firstly!
I believe it should be okay, as long as you warn the readers and make your intent clear that you do NOT support the path. As long as you aren’t encouraging the use of drugs and/or the distribution of selling drugs then your story should be fine. Don’t be too explicit with the details, but I think it would be even smarter to implement the impact of selling drugs and why you shouldn’t do it.
But then again, that really depends on your storyline & purpose.
Yeah, i was just scared because in the new guidelines they mentioned something about mentioning hard drugs? Anyway, thanks for the help!
