Ideas for stories

Permanent Linkby Sideromelane on Sun May 26, 2013 3:46 am

I have story ideas rattling around in my head, (Have had, for several years now), potentially a series of them, with all the stuff I like therin - hard vore, torture, decomposing victims, all that stuff.

But, unfortunately, I fear if I write them the way they presented themselves to my brain, I would catch a lot of flak - the victims/antagonists are a reflection of the 'typical' furry character represented in 99% of the fandom. Specifically the dragon characters - you know, soft vore predators with stubby or non-existant wings, smug attitudes, huge tits, usually herm. You know, the popular kind of dragon... The nasty little picturebox that flickers away in the back of my head keeps showing me images of my dragons doing awful things to them.

Question: Is it possible to write about that kind of character having awful things happen to them without making SOMEone think I'm targeting THEIR character or favorite character?
As much as I need to get this out of my head and into a document, I'm not going to post it if it will cause undue hassle, especially from people I actually like.

I have to say I've seen a few people who I'd classify as dragon lovers who might indeed get bent out of shape by a story like that. Now if your just worried about offending that type of person in general, I'd tell you you should release the story with a warring of the contents; if they read it, it's their own fault. If your worried about offending someone specific that you know, I understand you wanting to be more sensitive, but you should still write the story even if you decide you don't want to release it. Also, if you have someone specific in mind, you can tailor your characters to be very different from theirs. Give your character a love of crocheting, or make them an avid gardner, or give them a tick when they speak. Even with "furry, sexy dragons", there are plenty of small details to make them different.

Yeah, I'm not too worried about ticking off a bunch of panty twisters who are offended by any notion that their favorite species might actually *gasp* have something bad happen to them, my worry is the people who seriously play that character archetype and might assume I'm aiming it at THEM.

I wouldn't be, it's an archetype, but I worry, I really do.

I don't think people would get upset - if anyone does it's their own problem. There are vore stories that make every type of person into a persecuted victim, but as long as you have a content warning the whine-buck will be passed to the reader and you'll be absolved of responsibility.
Personally, i REALLY want to read those! So i hope you do write them :3

Well, I've started writing, so, maybe. We'll see, if I get some love out of the first one, I'll maybe do more.

Everyone plays archetypes to a certain point, and everyone has their own preferences.
Personally, I don't like egotistic, deity-like characters who just assume that everything and everybody is their prey or simply exists for their amusement, or are considered a "more accurate" depiction of a creature of fantasy/myth by their player.

I very much enjoy seeing those "all high and mighty" characters being mauled and stripped of their complacent attitude, in humiliating ways, by something or someone they'd consider inferior.

But as long as noone specific is a direct "target" of artwork like this, I'd say it's nothing to get upset about, after all they don't have to read/watch it if they're not into that kind of stuff.
