If real people are depicted in your work only as engaging in acts that are not at all untoward, there is no reasonable claim for that your work is "defamatory."

[8] For example, if you want to write a story about a wedding, consider the following angles: Describe: What is it? (A ceremony that results in the marriage of two people; a party or celebration; a ritual) Compare: What is it like or not like? (Like: other religious rituals, other types of parties; Not like: an average day) Associate: What else does it make you think of? (Expenses, dresses, church, flowers, relationships, arguments) Analyze: What parts or elements is it made up of? (Usually, a bride, a groom, a wedding dress, a cake, some guests, a venue, some vows, decorations; figuratively, stress, excitement, exhaustion, happiness) Apply: How is it used?
