Warnings?

I've started uploading my fic to AO3. I am siegeofangels over there too.

My only question is this: If you have read If you want to kiss the sky: should I use the official noncon warning?

My initial thought is to use the official CHOOSE NOT TO USE ARCHIVE WARNINGS warning and then tag it dubcon, because it's a creepy societal situation but John's choosing to consent.

Looking over the delicious tags, I see one person tagged it noncon (although with a note that they weren't sure whether to) and a couple for dubcon (and one for "thinky," which tickles me pink). But I don't know if that is more of a reflection of the audience. Do you think that people who want a noncon warning would like one on this story?

(My other quandry is whether to tag it asexuality, because in my mind that universe doesn't really allow for an asexual identity--I don't think anybody in that universe is identifying as straight or gay either--but people *are* tagging it asexuality on delicious, which leads me to think that people looking for ace fics on AO3 would like to find it. Hm.)

I'm leaving this post unlocked because I would like to hear from anyone who has thoughts on this. I'll even put in a text-box poll so you don't even have to click Reply.

You use a similar construction a few lines earlier (should have been), so i think that part works as it is!
