Is one of the reasons why is if she even tries to have sex with another girl Iwanako may die?

I don't understand this question; can you rephrase it?

I think he's asking if you're avoiding any yuri because Iwanako may have heart problems from the physical acts of such a relationship, AKA Hisao and his heart attacks when having sex.

Yikes. I know you're joking, but please don't scare us like that. :shock:

It sounds a little bit ominous when you put it like that. Anyhow, it seems to me like what you're saying is that the romantic relationship won't be the sole focus of the story. (Maybe I'm just overthinking this.)

I was NOT being offensive or anything of the sort. Eurobeatjester can support me on this.

Yeah, I didn't phrase that right. I should have said "Let me phrase it like this" then said this.

Fucking christ. I really shouldn't have posted in this thread this weekend. SC, you have my apologies.

In that case, I'm not "avoiding" yuri, because yuri is a weirdly specific Japanese genre with a lot of connotations I'm not comfortable attaching to this story. I'm not a Japanese author or artist, nor am I writing a story in Japanese, so I'm not interested in using the word. Claiming this story was yuri would be pretense. I have a RL friend who lives in Japan and he would probably club me to death if I claimed something was yuri and it didn't have all the secret herbs and spices he says yuri's supposed to have.

Unless you'd call, say, Carmilla yuri, this fic is not yuri. It's a story about non-heteronormative women, specifically young women, and there's romantic content. Beyond that, please resist the urge to put the story in a box. I've said very little about what that content could entail.

Well.. there is a carmilla thread on /u/...

edit: I think most of the internet has just taken Yuri to mean lady lovin lady storys. Depends where you go.

The thing about the craft of the writer, especially in online forums, is that it requires the ability to somehow convey appropriate mood and nuance. EBJ's support is irrelevant here. If your statement was rhetorical, then it was pointlessly so; if your statement was a direct query, it was pointlessly offensive. Modern readers and writers (and I suppose those who feel browbeaten by the death of the author idea) tend to think that intention doesn't count, so assertion of purpose is sufficient one way or the other, positively or negatively. I'd rather you had responded by saying something like, "I was not intending to be offensive and I apologise if it was thought to be so, and I also have a sense of humour." :D

That said, I shall humorously draw a monomolecular line across your conversational apparatus if Leaty humorously decides not to update Iwanako longer than she would normally do so. See, I too have a sense of humour, sometimes rhetorically so. Apologies all round, it's too early or late to be inebriated...

Woohoo. The blood, the Gothic, this is what happens when I look at wine and think of Carmilla. Okay, I shall stumble my way out of this minefield and go back to my bleak little druthering outcrop of fanfic.
