Because of its cultural roots in the pre-WorldWarII Japanese education system (see ClassS), a lot of yuri mangas produced in Japan these days are set in an ElaborateUniversityHigh or a OneGenderSchool. Consequentially, a [[SchoolgirlLesbians vast majority of lesbian couples]] in yuri manga are in their [[DangerousSixteenthBirthday late teens]] to [[ChristmasCake mid-twenties]]. While you are in no way bound to this setting and age range, you may find it easier to come up with subplots and reach your readers if you stick to the classics.

* Less a pitfall and more of a {{pet peeve|Trope}}: To acknowledge heteronormativity is important, but the bewildered "But we are both girls!" reaction to a confession is overdone. You can do that in historical fiction, but these days, all but the most sheltered girls are aware that yes, some women do like other women in a romantic way.

* Less a pitfall than a {{pet peeve|Trope}}: To acknowledge heteronormativity is important, but the bewildered "But we are both girls!" reaction to a confession is overdone. In historical fiction, it's fine, but these days, all but the most sheltered girls are aware that yes, some women do like other women in a romantic way.

* GenderBender. The original thematic core of classic (shoujo) yuri was, surprisingly to some, not so much lesbianism as such, as the exploration of alternate gender identities. In its home country, the genre was (and remains) an important form of {{escap|ism}}e for young women from the [[YamatoNadeshiko restrictive social norms]] placed upon them almost from birth.

* Rule number two: Do NOT make them [[BaitAndSwitchLesbians break up in the end and have happy vanilla marriages]]. While it certainly defuses the challenge to heteronormativity posed by your work, it somewhat misses the point of the genre and is usually treated as a cheap-ass way around breaking the first rule above (heaven help you if you break both). If you want a BittersweetEnding that badly, please take the StarCrossedLovers route with an unspoken promise of the leads getting back together in undefined future.
