I strongly advise that you remove the Adult tag from this story and simply use the author's note as a disclaimer. The "adult" material is minor and I would hate to think someone missed out on your wonderful story because they were turned off by those three red Xes. --[[User:Lloyd Brunnel|Lloyd Brunnel]] 03:14, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

: Thank you so much for the advice (and for listing this story in your favorites -- that's a real honor). I'm not at all sure what to do with this. It seems to me that there are two ways that something can be 'adult'. One way is by being explicit. There's not really any of that in this story -- there's some foul language, but nothing out of the ordinary these days; and there's some sexual content, but it's left to the imagination. But it seems to me that something can also be 'adult' purely on its themes, and I still have the feeling that that's the case here. I mean, it does have sexual intercourse going on ''during'' a transformation (a transformation to full-animal form by both parties, no less), and I think that the mere concept of that would be offensive to a substantial number of people. And I'm inclined to err on the side of caution. So I think I'll leave the 'adult' tag for now. But I'll definitely think it over; when I become more familiar with the site and see how other similar stories are tagged, I might change my mind. --[[User:Phaedrus|Phaedrus]] 03:40, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
