So, I have a question.

I want to bring one of my former characters back to the bar. The last time this character was in, he was an adult. This time, he will be a child of as-yet undetermined age, but not more than twelve. More relevantly, he will be a child who - canonically - is abused by his master/slaver in about every way possible. Physically, emotionally (in the form of terror), and sexually.

So the question is, if any of you (or your characters, if you don't want to deal with that) would be triggered by playing with him, or would rather I didn't bring him in at all, please let me know. I can't promise I won't bring him in, but I will keep a list of People He Is Not To Tag.

So just comment here.

ETA: I've been asked in strong terms by a friend not to do it, so it won't be happening, not in the bar and possibly not anywhere - I'm still considering that. Thank you for your responses.

It's Ulfin, right?

*looks at own character list* All of mine are available with one exception, that being Blodwen Rowlands. Given both of their canons, I don't think EITHER of us want to deal with what could possibly happen in that situation.

Yeah, it's Ulfin. And... yeeeeah, let's avoid that one.

(Link) not know about which of mine yet I would prefer not to be tagged.

But given everything that's going on in LJland, I strongly encourage you to consider if you're willing to risk potentially being reported by someone for playing a character in this situation.

Which isn't to say you shouldn't, but it seemed something to bring up.

...this is a good point. I wouldn't be OOMing any of the actual abuse or describing it anywhere in detail, just because writing that has no appeal for me, but I'll have to think on it.

I can't do it. I can not do it. I can not do it, and am honestly, truthfully, afraid that it will trigger me to hell and gone just knowing he's in the bar like that. Yes, it is your choice.

Please, please don't do it.
