I have a question about one of my fics.
There's nothing sexual in it, nor do I plan to have anything sexual in it (and even if I did, I would only have it happen between characters who are known to be older -more into their twenties -and they would not be near the younger characters when it would happen -but I don't plan on even having anything like it in that story) But there are characters implied to be under 18 living in a setting with characters over 18. It's my O'Shag college AU I've had on hiatus but am planning to restart in a month, so there are multiple bands in dorms, and obviously, Def Leppard and Metallica are a lot younger than AC/DC and Rush for example.
Also, in the dorm setting I have, the bandmates of bands are roommates (one member of Metallica would room with another member of Metallica), so there generally wouldn't be an age gap for roommates. The only exception is Rick Allen rooming with Joe Elliott, but I'm not showing any interaction between the two that I would consider to be questionable in any way. (Nothing sexual at all, they're in their own separate beds in the room -they just happen to be in the same room).
My question is, is it okay with characters of different age ranges (some being under 18 ) together in this setting (all in a building together) as long as there is nothing sexual about it? And is it okay for an example being Bon Scott (older person in the series, and a peer mentor figure) to call Angus Young "kid" -which I have had in earlier chapters -in a brotherly-affection type way? (which is reflective of the interaction in the band they had -kind of similar to how in Star Wars, Han Solo called Luke "kid" but there was nothing iffy implied about it). He's a mentor figure in the fic, so he'd say things like "don't worry about that, kid, it'll be alright" to the younger ones if they got frustrated... I'm trying to clarify with the examples so there's no confusion -I at least don't see anything questionable about it. Is it okay?
This is a long running fic with some connected chapters and some one shots that I am writing from inspiration in life, so it's not something I would finish before June, so I want to know if I'll have to move it to another site.
