That's why I said the first rape will surely break her - because she suffers much more in that fic and still comes out mostly unchanged, which I find unbelievable und unecessary cruel.
I mean no offence but if you're going to do sexual assault/rape of any kind you have to realize the baggage that comes with that, it's not just bad sex its a lifetime of night terrors serious PTSD and living with the terror and fear that the person who did it could return to do it again, or that any person around you could do it to you again its life-changing and emotionally crippling.
Also, if you're writing this purely for shock, then your writing it for the wrong reasons and in doing so you could trigger a real-life victim reading it even more so if it's handled insensitively. Ghosts has the good sense to never show the scene happening in real-time it's offscreen, to never make light of and the rapist gets what's coming to them. I say if your gonna write rape only write it if your fully committed otherwise don't go there as you don't have to write it there are other ways to break characters outside of this that don't involve this.
