In my latest story, my OC's sister; Chloe who is 17 wishes to marry her boyfriend Lorcan (also 17). I've looked it up and you need to be 16/17 with parental approval in the UK and at 18 you do not need it. Lorcan has permission from his parents but Chloe doesn't as her mum isn't fond of her 'weird' boyfriend.
Chloe comes up with a plan and asks her mother to sign a new 'Hogsmeade' permission form as she 'lost her old one'. As she asks her mum when she is busy she doesn't really read it and signs it anyway as she trusts her daughter. The form actually stated that her mother gave permission
Is this okay?
Thanks in advance
As long as both parties enter into the marriage willingly (and without negative consequences if they do not wish to be married) and both parties are over 16 and neither is in a position of power, then this is fine. -tmwtti

I was just curious if I could reference the Playstation game, Fifa, in my chapter? And if I can, would I just cite it under EA Sports?
Thanks in advance!
Yes, that's fine. -tmwtti

I am a new writer on the archive and having read the rules, FAQs, and tutorials, I'm still trying to feel my way to the boundary regarding allowable violence in a Mature story. I was hoping a validator might be willing to look at a brief synopsis of my concerns and/or the two paragraphs at issue in an upcoming chapter to make sure they are not over the line.

I read the relevant tutorial, but I'd like to PM someone with regard to eating disorders in the current chapter I'm writing.
Thanks in advance.

I have recently edited one of my stories and have checked it and the group of stories it appears in periodically, but, um, the publicly accessible view of my story has changes appearing, although it's not moving to the front page.
I edited another story and it's happening there too, but this problem hasn't happened before when I edited my stories.
Basically, is this normal?
Sorry if it is, I'm just kinda confused.

Yes, this is normal. You'll see the changes live when you're logged in, but other readers will not. If you are viewing the stories sorted by New Chapter, it won't show it bumped. -WTM

Hey, I was wondering if it's okay to have a sort of epilogue type thing at the end of the chapter. The story's chapters are titled after parts of a play (Act I, Intermission, Act II), and I was hoping to put a little POV switch at the end to wrap it up, called "Curtain Call". It would be less than 500 words (probably closer to 200 or 300).
I'm just not sure if putting a page break and centered text that says "Curtain Call" would make it technically two chapters in one.
If this is unclear, I could PM the "Curtain Call" to someone.

Yes, that's fine to do. -WTM

I need some clarification regarding the rules about glorifying self-mutilation. Could I PM a validator with a description of my story to make sure it's OK? I'd rather not post the details here because I'm not sure it's a 12+ discussion.
Thanks in advance! You all are always so helpful with my last-minute questions!
Edited by WeasleyTwinMom, 05 March 2014 - 05:43 PM.
Definitely not 12+! You can PM me. -WTM

Could I PM someone about a bit of poetry? It is 2 lines, but there's internal rhyming so it sort of seems like four lines. I also don't know how to give credit for it without giving away personal info.
