What do you do when someone you know asks to see your writing, but they're homophobic and you don't want them to see your shipping stories? Even if I showed the [Friend-shipping] story I wrote a year ago, it's still on the same FimFiction account that's linked to my lesbian shipping fics.

What should I do, /fic/?

Add dinosaurs. All lesbian stories with dinosaurs are automatically Homophobic-proof.

Get the story, put it on a google docs, and let them read that. Easily done if you still have the original document on which you wrote the story. Just remove your name and the title, and you are golden. Additionally, unless they are your main means of support, fuck their opinion would be my position, but then I have practice in not giving fucks.

Also, homophibia is a bullshit term, stop using it unless they get into fetal positions and slowly say:
"lesbiaaaaaaannnnsss…. lesbiansssss…."

Fixed your tag.

Import to Google Docs, change the names?

I'm not afraid to admit that I've never been in this position. My line of work doesn't lead me into matters of the heart too often. But if it were me? I'd show her my writing. I'd explain to her that you ship colorful cartoon ponies, and respectfully ask her to accept that you have a difference of opinion on the issue.

I don't think that'd be a good idea. There's a stigma for liking cartoon horses, there's a stigma for writing fanfiction, and there's a stigma for shipping. Citing "difference of opinion on the issue" has never worked in such cases, as far as I know.

It depends on how sensible the person in question is. The best solution is probably the copy-paste into Gdocs one, though, because any other way would probably involve a long and heated discussion that could end badly depending on the person in question

Anyway, I'd voice my opinion on "homophobia" which is indeed a stupid term, not least because it means, literally, "fear of sameness", but I'd probably sound like a hypocrite, heretic, lunatic, fanatic, or some combination thereof.

The [Friend-shipping] story I'm talking about is Rainy Hooves which I wrote over a year ago and has a scene where Raindrops and Derpy sleep together to keep warm (though she didn't seem to have a problem with Katniss and Rue sleeping together in The Hunger Games.)

>It depends on how sensible the person in question is.
She is not sensible at all when it comes to this subject matter.

Also, trips!

Wait, Really? You're a brony, and you're worried about a friend of yours finding a fictional story you wrote, because they're homophobic? While I can see the small stem of logic behind that, it doesn't seem like a very sensible course of action. If she wants to see it, just show it to her. It is–after all–fiction, and furthermore, you're a guy; it's a known fact that pretty much all straight males think lesbianism is super hot. If it shocks her, well… she must not know you very well.

>>1002
If she didn't have a problem with it before, why should she have a problem with it now? And don't say 'because ponies', because you and I both know that's a BS excuse at this point.

Don't sweat it, man, she should be fine, and if she's not, well… I'd say it's her loss.

Sounds like "she" is his mom. Kind of different.

Honestly, guessing at your situation, hide it. Hide it hard. If she wants to read something, tell her that all your old stuff isn't that good and that you'll write something special for her to read.

Oh, if that's the case…

I don't write anything excessively objectionable, but when it's not creepypasta-style short stories, it's difficult to understand unless you read it a few times. My mum bitches when I don't show her my writing, but when I do, she has nothing to say about it but "huh, interesting".

So I would advise just keeping it secret.

Speaking from past experience, maybe show it to her anyway and bank on the chance that she doesn't make it far enough in to reach the parts you're worried about? (Assuming that the first few chapters aren't too friendshipping heavy). I don't mean that as a slight against your writing; I just mean that your friend may be invested in you, but not so much in your story, except as a means to be invested in you. As in, they'll read the first few chapters, praise you for the quality of that part, but not really intend to read it to completion. If they stop before they hit "eww lesbians", then problem solved, yes?

Of course, that's gambling that your friend doesn't love the story so much that they actually read it cover-to-cover ^^;

EDIT: Heck, you could even just only give them the first few chapters, and not link them to the friendshippy sections. If they ask for moar, then umm… distract them.

Basically, this. Copypaste into Google Docs. Piece of cake.

If the majority of your writing is lesbian shipping and they are surprised at how little they think you've written, then you're in a bad situation.
