Believe me, I know exactly what you're talking about. We're putting a lot of thought into just how these girls' world can and should be allowed to intersect with the one where stuff like Taken by Storm happens, and how any such intersection should be presented.
One thing that may be a comfort is that I love K-On! and including it in UF is not an act of revenge ficcery - that is to say, they're not here to be abused. (I don't do that kind of thing very often and haven't at all, as far as I can recall, for quite a long time now.) That isn't to promise that the story may not, at some point, require it - I often find I have to do things I don't really want to do in order to make the machine work - but we're gonna try like hell to avoid damage, and, in the event it becomes unavoidable, to minimize scarring.
Oh dear. That wasn't as reassuring as I was hoping it would be. That's kind of the price of being up-front about these things, I suppose. At any rate, I can't see a day like that even threatening to come for quite a while in the overall scheme of things, so it's not something any of us has to worry about right now, and I promise that if it does, it won't be undertaken carelessly.
