Ok, so it recently came to my attention that some of you here have varied opinions on my story.
First, I’d like to thank @FairyGodfeather for giving their opinion on the matter and advising me to edit the story so that it does not include a real-life missing plane. A lot of other users also had the same thoughts, the general consensus being that the wounds are still fresh and that this story has been written too soon.
I’d like to thank @MultipleChoice for taking a different stance on this matter, saying that this tragedy will be scarcely remembered by the public in years to come and that they do not find writings based around tragedies to be ‘ill-tasting’.
I’ve read everybody’s comment and taken all of your opinions into account. In the end, I’ve decided to change the name of the flight in the story and make it entirely fictional.
I’d like to thank everybody for taking their time to read what I had to say and discussing it with each other.
I will post the story link again once editing in complete.
I’m also interested in a writing an interactive story based on this. If anyone has any ideas, please share them below.
