2022.01.16 22:35 634425 is a black comedy about a school shooting DOA?

Hi, I've lurked here a while but finally had cause to post.
I've written a few screenplays, never gotten anything produced.
My latest effort is a black comedy provisionally called GROUP PROJECT. In very short summation, it's about a student who uncovers a plan by two of her classmates to carry out a shooting, and instead of turning them in to the cops, blackmails them and stage-manages their plot for her own ends. Maybe worth noting that at the end, the 'plan' falls apart and no one actually gets killed.
I've been outlining for a few months and finally started writing a few weeks ago, I'd say I'm about a third of the way through as of now.
Maybe this is my obliviousness at work, but it didn't even really occur to me that this would be considerably more upsetting or taboo than serial killers or terrorism or any of the other such grave topics that have been treated by comedy. One of my favorite ever movies, and an inspiration for this screenplay, is FOUR LIONS, a comedy about inept British jihadis (poorly) planning a terror attack.
However I've shown GROUP PROJECT to a few people and there's a pretty unanimous consensus in favor of "this just isn't funny. It can't be made funny, it's awful no matter what." A bit disappointing to be honest, because this is probably the best polished and most coherent of my efforts yet, and I had some tentative hopes for it. Particularly since the budged would be very low).
(Wasn't sure how to tag this. Please let me know if I chose the wrong tag).

2022.01.16 22:35 tymywrcilyatt BPD and Trust Issues with Men

Is anyone with BPD lesbian or bisexual female? Does it get any better if you're with someone of the same sex? I ask this because I've only had friendships and romantic relationships with men in the past years and I have a strong feeling I'm demisexual/ace. I'm wondering if it's just because they were guys that it was as terrible as it was or if no matter who it is I would feel this way. I know the logical answer is pretty obvious but I would like a new perspective because I've seriously been consideringly only dating women or possibly asexual men to see if maybe I would feel better in relationships. I haven't had a relationship with another woman in a while but the times that I did they were pretty solid. However, when I say awhile I mean middle school and I'm currently a college student. Maybe a part of me is scared to be friends with another girl because my relationships with guys have been so bad that I'm afraid they'll react in the same way. Like I said the answer is probably obvious but it would be nice to have a new perspective on same-sex relationships for people with BPD.

2022.01.16 22:35 jtversusfeka Q about SWN setting w/ a different rules set.

I really like a lot of the setting ideas in SWN, but I am planning on DMing and I can only juggle so much in terms of rules (very little, actually). Also not a big fan of the little fish in a big world that will kill you dead aspect of OSR rules sets. So I’m thinking of using Tiny Frontiers as the rules base to underpin the game and still use all the awesome SWN setting and world building. Have other done anything like this? If so, how did it work for you?
