Hmm, I'm a bit worried.

Now that I got my regular big bang done, I was planning to start working on my gen big bang, it's just...

I have this plotbunny, with the Winchesters accidentally getting trapped in a mall somewhere, accidentally forced to take hostages. And with the cops surrounding them outside thinking them mass murderers because of what the leviChesters did in s7.

Now I'm probably stretching things, but after what happened in Colorado, I don't want anyone even considering that I'm trying to make any kind of connection to the mass murder there.

Now for one thing, the Winchesters obviously aren't going to murder any of their hostages, and none of it is happening anywhere near a movie theater, but part of me still worries. Probably because it was so recent.

I'm probably worried over nothing, but still... should I stick with the bunny or try and find something else?

It didn't remind me of the Colorado shootings- I was more reminded of the season 2 episode, Nightshifter.

I've always loved the cop storylne :-)

And I just think that it would be interesting to have the cops and the hostages all terrified of those horrifying Winchesters. Esp. considering what the leviChesters did to their hostages.

I wouldn't worry about it. Sadly these kind of horrific events don't stick in public consciousness for very long. By the time your story posts several new horrors will have happened. I doubt anyone will equate your story with the killings in Aurora. You could always put a trigger warning on it, though.

Probably, still I don't want to make it seem like I'm doing a fic like this to get attention, while I've been planning to use this bunny for the past two months if not longer.

I think it's a bit of a stretch. But if you are worried too much definitely put out as many warnings on the subject as you want. Hostage situations for some are a huge trigger but it looks like in no way are you trying to sympathize or make a statement on what has happened.


There is also the option of just posting next year. There's plenty of other bunny farms out there to tap into if you need another idea.

Stick with it. I don't see a connection.
