Dear FanFic Authors:

Please, please, please, start tagging your character dynamics!!!!

(This is mostly intended for LGBTQ+ stories, but it can go to every kind of pairing)

If you do choose to have one character as the “dominant” and one as the “submissive” in the relationship, please reflect this in your tags!

If you are going to have the characters switch these roles at all in your story or even talk about switching, please please reflect this in your tags!!!! (Even if it’s just one offhand comment made by the characters, or an offhand comment if your authors notes, it’s still important to tag this!!)

Tagging is really important, and while the roles in a relationship aren’t necessarily ‘triggering’ like tags about torture and abuse, they can be to some.

It gets really frustrating when you read 3+ fics that are all really good but get spoiled because of the hidden dynamic between characters that’s different from what you expect them to be (and you don’t get any warnings from the tags) and it can leave a bad taste in your mouth.

(I am NOT trying to say every relationship is about “who’s on top and who’s on bottom”, or that your view of the relationship is inferior, I am simply asking for tagged fics if the author has chosen to assign one or both roles to a characters relationship)

I know not a lot of authors are going to see this but if you do, please keep this in mind the next time you post a story or even if it helps you tag an old/completed story!
