Tamika Wood’s Birthday Party – Content Notes

See General Content Notes.

This post contains content notes and trigger warnings. If content notes or trigger warnings make you uncomfortable or offend you please feel free to skip it! I wouldn’t want you to unexpectedly encounter content which you’d rather avoid during your leisure time.

It isn’t possible to warn for everything, but I have tried to warn for the most common triggers. You may choose not to read this story, to skip certain chapters, or to choose to read certain chapters when you’re feeling mentally and/or emotionally prepared.

Please keep yourself safe and I apologise if I’ve missed anything that negatively affects you. I want reading my stories to be enjoyable. But my stories are not just happy fluffy stories were nothing bad happens. Some bad things happen! Some very bad things happen! I don’t usually write about the bad things in lots of detail.

If you know that you have triggers which are uncommon or I may not have anticipated please feel free to ask me so that I can add them to the content notes or give you spoilers to let you know whether or not something does or does not happen.

Some of these notes may include spoilers.

In this story

If you are uncomfortable with the following topics, you may prefer a different story. Teenage pregnancy, teenage sex and romance, queer romance.

I have tried to structure this page so that the least spoilerish content is at the beginning, and the most spoilerish content is at the end. Read as far as you need or, or would like.
