//TW//SH suicide parental death (Homophobia mabye?)\

This story got flagged when I wrote it for potp but I'm still really proud of it so i decided to post here.

Hello,
While you have put a TW it would be helpful to know what it is for before the story can be read. When someone goes into this with a tw, they still don't know exactly what they may be about to read, so please put one before the story starts mentioning what the tw is for, because there are a lot of triggering topics in this story.

Obviously I'm not a mod and can't make you do anything but I just want you to know that

However (since this seems like it might be based on personal experience) if you'd like, you may rant/vent in my DM's if you need to
(I'll stop spamming now)

(Estoc has a point regarding the trigger warning, though I’m going to expand on it a bit. Considering how dark this story is from the get go, I would suggest that, at the very least, you put a spoiler on the entire thing with a more specific trigger warning above. This way, if anyone who does have triggers stumble upon this, they won’t be triggered just by looking at the first sentence)
(Also, if you were taken to a counselor’s office for this, why are sharing this to a public website? For one, that isn’t good for you. Two, it isn’t good or respectful to anyone on this site because you seem to be showing them a suicidical story and saying it’s cool/fun, whether you actually are or not)
(So, I would suggest that you please, at least, modify the title and your story to be more respectful of those that would be triggered by this. Otherwise, please don’t share stuff like this. I’m not trying to be rude or anything, but this particular story, and especially its apparent context, needs to be adjusted somehow, if not taken down entirely)

(Also, to help you out, in case you don’t know how to do spoilers, here’s how. I got this from the tutorial thread that shows how to do formatting on this site. You’ll probably have to quote this post to see how I did it though, my phone’s being dumb right now)

Gonna respond bc I <3 talking. (TW, I mention suicide)I did change it so it has a big fat trigger waning with the triggers. I don't really want to change the story itself. The story is really close to me cause I may have subconsciously made it about me a tiny bit. I haven't tried to k my s I just needed to write something tragic and was really proud of it. I'm proud of the story itself not that they k-ed their s. I don't mean to be disrespectful, sorry that it came off that way tho, I have a lot of ppl who tired in my life. My writing style is gory in general. I will change the title of the thread if I can(Idk if I can) If I cant I'm gonna try to delete this thread and make one with a better title. The cake will be the same but the frosting will be diffrent.

(I appreciate it, and thank you for adjusting everything. And, I wasn’t referring to changing the story itself, I just meant changing everything around it, like the title and adding the better trigger warning. And, I get that you’re proud of the story, and that’s fine, just please make sure to be more careful in the future, particularly with how you introduce it. Please and thank you)

(I will in the future, making jokes is how I deal with traumatic things so I was kindof coping about something I wrote while coping?? Idk it was weird. I just joke about things that I probs shouldn't. I'm gonna use spoilers more now tho!!)

@Serpentess health_and_safety languageChaos Shall Reign

(Thank you. That’s fine, though just be aware that, with text, unfortunately, a joke can be miscontrued as being serious, simply because it’s difficult to show tone in text [no matter how much we want it to be easy])
(I’m glad I could help with the spoilers, lol. The formatting abilities here are fun once you figure them out [hence why I linked the tutorial thread, because you can do all sorts of stuff])
(Anyway, I’ll leave this be now)
