Find out inside why this wouldn't be allowed at the very website I help to admin!
Well, it doesn't seem to be too naughty by the looks of it. A somewhat innocent girl that seems only to be violating dress codes perhaps. What could possibly be against the rules?
Well, for one thing, I made the character "nearly" 18. Even though there isn't a sexual situation involving her, it is implied that she is clearly on the hunt for a boyfriend, and some sort of physical encounter of the sexual kind. We do have some leeway on the Haven, but this one might be pushing it if I had given it to someone as a trade.
The other thing involves a probable coupling of relatives, and it one of the biggest issues when you do a familial body swap of any sort between generations. It isn't a physical issue, as the "mother" and "father" still appear to be the same on the outside. Mentally is a different story though, and the Haven comes down hard on anything like this, erring on the side of caution .. and honestly, I don't have a problem with it at all. Not only is it Rachel's sandbox where you have to play by her rules, there is a fine line to be danced around, and instead of having to deal with each issue individually, just make a blanket statement that none of it is allowed. I am betting that is how a company like Disney would've handled a PG-13 version of Freaky Friday: The TG version. Maybe the Mother was away for the week visiting a sick relative.
My implication for the caption is that somehow the mother desired for some sort of "I wish you two would understand each other better, or walk a mile in each other's shoes" while blowing out the candles on a birthday cake while dad and daughter were arguing about texting or what have you. With that wish came the compulsions to act as they would if everything was normal, and that means their normal daily routines.
The only way around this that could possibly work for the haven would be to make the girl 18 years old AND change things around to say, "As serious as the wish 'your wife' made that put us .." In that case, Dad and Daughter are related, but neither are blood with the mom. If the original premise of the caption offends you, please interpret it this way. Technically I could see this being the case if my daughter and I had switched places under the same circumstances while she was living with me and my GF, who isn't her mother. My offspring and I both seem to be excellent negotiators and we'd have to bargain this whole thing out.
Anyway, due to the above, this is obviously a blog exclusive. Feel free to talk about the caption itself and how comfortable you are with the subject matter, good or bad. I wonder if most people that enjoy body swaps even thought about some of the implications before seeing this caption and discussion posted here.
Make sure you come back on Sunday for something REALLY big! It's been a long time in the making, and I can't wait to show it to you ... Let's party on Sunday night!
