As the title asks. I have a story idea I am itching to write that would probally be classed as YA BUT as of now it's cast is made entirely of anthropomorphic animal characters. The setting is not earth, and I simply can't imagine making one side in the conflict, or both, human. However, I fear that anthropomorphic animals may be too "childish" and a turn off for teens so I had the idea to make a "compromise." While I cannot bring myself to make these characters human, I can see them as a unique species that can shift between an animal form and a form that looks human except for the fact they have the ears and tail of the animal they turn into.(think catgirl style if you know anime). While anthro characters would be ideal for this, I feel that the second route may be more palitable and less "childish" however I'm not fully sure which direction to take. If any of you have suggestions for me I would greatly appreciate them. Also, please excuse any spelling errors. I am on a machine that lacks spell checking functions....and don't have access to a dictionary either. So yeah.
