Quote of the week-

“Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.”- Mark Twain

How, in your opinion, should the topic of sexual assault (In general) be handled in fiction, no matter the medium? 

13 deviants said Keep it classy. When using it in a story, keep the focus less on the act and more on the aftermath. Avoid showing the act if at all possible.
6 deviants said All the detail, all the emotional torment, in order to make a heavy impact and make the gravity of the situation ingrained in the reader.
3 deviants said We've got enough rape and sexual assault in the real world. We don't need it in our stories.
3 deviants said Other. (Comments!)
1 deviant said Rape scenes should be heard, not seen. Keep it entirely past-tense and don't bring it up often since victims of it don't tend to talk about it after the fact.
No deviants said If it is involved, don't focus on the aftermath. It's only needed to shock the audience and demonstrate the character is vulnerable.

Personal Quote: "Free from prophecy, all we have left before us, are choices."
I was going to write something about recent harassment I've experienced at the hands of a particularly toxic individual here on DA, but instead, I'll make like a real bright little star I've come to like, :iconstar-electric: and repost something she posted.


A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying.
