fs01 Arc 7 question

I will have a lot of time to write the next week or so so I am brainstorming ideas for a 7th arc.

One idea that came to mind was possibly doing an earlier experience of fs, probably during high school.  I am a little apprehensive at doing this since I'm not sure how comfortable I would be with it due to his age at the time.  I'm curious if people have thoughts on this.  Basically it would be a 35 year old recounting events that happened when he was say, 17.

Any feedback on this would be welcome, even if it's just, "stay away from that" or "I don't see a problem."

Thanks in advance.


  1. Sounds fine to me, and I can't see how it would be a problem at all. I'd be interested in hearing about the teenage fiction fur. Go for it!

    1. Thank you, Lady Grey.

      I know people sometimes get hung up on things involving younger characters. I suppose I could go for past-tense writing in order to have it being fs recounting the story to someone else to clearly define that. I just worry since it may include some sexual situations.

  2. My husband Karl assures me that the mind of the average 17 year old boy is absolutely full of sexual situations. Why would it offend someone to know that submissive fantasies can easily occur at that age? Karl tells me that his began at age 11 with a wet dream involving a friend of his mother in a very dominant role. What's more, by age 17 I was fully aware of my own dominant proclivities and was already trying them out on males who were classmates and an older man as well.

    Don't let the hang-ups of others dissuade you from writing. It's their problem, not yours. If they don't like what you're writing, well, just stop reading it.

    1. Thank you, Lady Grey. I am still mulling things over. Out of the handful of readers I get consistent feedback from one in particular is very against the idea of including any events that happen to the characters below the age of 18 so I am a bit hesitant.

      I have a lot of ideas floating around but want to make sure I avoid a repeat of arc 6 where I fall off the deep end of fantasy land. The backdrop I started for arc 7 seemed to take me there already so I may scrap what I have and keep working with ideas.

      Take care.
