Can a story be too diverse?

I have a story in mind, and it is about sexual slavery. I'm not writing it just yet, but I have this hesitation inside about it being too diverse.

The story is long, and it's more like a novel, maybe even a two-part novel. It's about a girl who got kidnapped into slave trade, and it has a long meaningful plot to it.

Thing is, during her journey the story changes. From being more like erotic horror in the beginning, to turning more loving and romantic in the end when he gets taken in by a better owner.

But will that change throw off the story? I'm afraid that those who like horror parts will be thrown off by milder 3rd act, and vice versa.

what do you think?

Honestly i think it depends on the story, I mean take a look at Three Square Meals or Steampunk Harlots. If you keep the plot line interesting i think people will stick with a story usually. You should avoid using any extreme fetishes though.

My writing is usually about fetishes, so can't really avoid them. It's supposed to be a niche story to begin with.

Or if my extreme you mean stuff like scat or bloodletting - no, I don't go that far.

Heh. This isn't about story ideas but writer's limitations. So thanks a fucking lot to a mod who moved the thread here - I reall can't wait to hear IDEAS about my plot, and I don't need author feedback at all.

You were caught in the cross fire of two mods who play games by shoving other threads into each others forums. This was obviously a case of spite because although I believe this didn't really belong where you put, the proper forum would have been the Author's hang out, not here because you're asking a direct question.

Maybe it will get moved again.

People will follow a story as long as you can keep it interesting. I would say to post in non consent because of how the story starts off it will get flamed anywhere else. As the relationship changes over (kudos for not just writing non stop rape and abuse, but making it a story and a possible happy ending) Keep it there even as it changes because there is a faction for those types of stories there.

The length shouldn't matter but if you do chapters make sure you are breaking them up in a manner that in each one something significant happens to keep a nice pace going

Good luck

I originally posted it into Author's Hangout.

A mod war? Seriously? That's when you understand it's time to send the forums to hell.

To the "will it be disadvantaged" question--yes, probably, by some readers. But that isn't a reason not to write it and that it unfold as it wants to.

this loving wives is becoming a local meme.

And I wouldn't be technically wrong too. Because in the very end, she becomes a wife after all.

Ugh. That's why I have to re-read and re-edit everything I write several times before even sending it to the editors. Don't always do it with forum posts, that's why there are such phrases.
Still not 100% used to the language, I guess. I wonder if I ever will be.
